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.

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.

We are a family of five that was lucky to find this aesthetically pleasing and well located Escalante property. The owners do a fantastic job maintaining this lovely home. It was spotless, well equipped for cooking, had comfortable beds and everything that helps to make a vacation home superb. Lots to explore in the area. Beautiful sunsets! Lovely views! Stay here if you have a chance!

Comfortable, clean, un-cluttered, efficient; great location for exploring SW Utah.

  • 5 of 5

The website description is accurate. What you see is what you get--or perhaps better. Very clean and well maintained. Nicely provisioned kitchen, plenty of towels and supplies. The owners were very accommodating to our timing and questions about activities. Recommended as a base to explore Capital Reef, Escalante and Bryce. Easy to spend a week here.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you found La Luz a great destination location for exploring our National Parks and the Grand Staircase National Monument. Escalante is right in the middle of these amazing wilderness spots. I hope you can return.

staggering view, lovely place

  • 5 of 5

Property was exactly as described, about two minutes from Escalante and in perfect condition. The owners are great and unobtrusive. Comfortable and stylish with a view from every window that is truly breathtaking. It is also as quiet as a tomb. Our only very slight negative is that there is simply not enough places to sit in the main living area. With only one small sofa, our family of four had to split up between rooms. We would definitely stay there again when we return for more canyoneering with Excursions of Escalante....
