About Ricki & Sandy Brown

Ricki & Sandy Brown, are deserts rats. We moved to Southern Utah to enjoy the canyons and mountains, hiking and biking being our passions. (We can direct you to secret spots.) We live next door to our vacation home in our own private place.

Ricki & Sandy Brown purchased this house in 2005

Why Ricki & Sandy Brown chose Utah

Escalante is the most remote village in the mainland USA and represents the New West. For us, it's a new life in close harmony with nature and all things wild.

What makes this house unique

The most talked about issues are the silence, the golden light, along with the clarity of the heavens. You'll want to experience the wild, quiet west as the weather turns.

perfect retreat in escalante

  • 5 of 5

I spent six days at La Luz and it was excellent. The home was fantastic and had everything I needed to enjoy my time there. Ricki and Sandy are great hosts and interesting people whose knowledge of the area was helpful in thinking about where to hike and enjoy the amazing landscape in and around Escalante. Highly Recommended.

Great house with helpful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It was very clean with nice views of the outside. It was close to town and to what we wanted to see in the Escalante area. Ricki and Sandy were wonderful hosts. They shared vegetables from there garden with us and gave us much information on hiking. We really enjoyed La Luz and would stay there again.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

La Luz was a great base for exploring the Escalante area. Beautiful views, charming décor and a great kitchen. It's on the edge of town, close to services and Ricki and Sandra are right next door if you need anything, but we felt completely private and cozy. The views of mountains and fields through the wall of south-facing windows made us feel far from everything.
