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 Escalante

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.

Beautiful house, beautiful views, and beautiful area to visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at La Luz, and it was another excellent experience. This wonderfully well-designed home is beautiful and clean with the stunning views promised, a comfortable bed, lovely finishes and friendly, helpful yet unobtrusive hosts. There are good restaurant options nearby, as well as grocery, health food, and convenience store options. And, of course, many amazing parks, views, and hikes nearby.

Convenient & comfortable.

This was our base for a few days of hiking in the Escalante area. We had everything we needed, and the hosts were very helpful. Great place to stay.

Beautiful home, peaceful setting, awe inspiring landscape

  • 5 of 5

The house looks out on beautiful open space. Very homey and bright, and passive solar design is great. Well equipped for cooking and comfy beds. Hosts were friendly and helpful about hikes, routes, and restaurants. Really appreciate that Sandy went the extra mile to mail phone charger. We liked the town of Escalante--small but has what you need. It was a little off the beaten track, which was a blessing. No lack of amazing outdoor activities and indescribable landscape.

Really would like to just live here...

  • 5 of 5

The architecture of this little house is only rivaled by the view! We had been to Zion and then Bryce and this area was just so quiet and wonderful. Great exploring and hiking without the crowds. We had two couples and the house was perfect. Comfortable, beautiful and had everything we needed. We got up thrilled with the view and sat out on the deck at night and marveled at the Milky Way. The owner was friendly and helpful with great recommendations.

Unbeatable views and solitude...near the town!

  • 5 of 5

The views at sunrise, at sunset, and of the stars are incomparable. The home is well-stocked and comfortable -- much, much more like a resort than a cabin. The single shower for two bedrooms worked for us -- we knew in advance and easily navigated whose turn it was. The bedrooms feel very separated and private otherwise. I'd stay again in a heartbeat.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon. The home was beautiful, and perfectly located for multiple hiking spots.

The owners are very responsive, and easily accessible. After a change in our travel plans, they allowed us to come a day early, without hesitation.

The home has a unique style, that is not always the most user-friendly, but overall, a perfect place to stay when exploring Utah.
