Overview

About the property

A peaceful home located away from city lights and city noise!

"Acienda" is in a "dry" county. It is best if you get your alcohol before you arrive. It is much cheaper in LasVegas.

We have the best of two world's. We are located half way between St. George (less than 20 miles) and Zion National Park (a little more than 20 miles). Acienda is located near the quaint town of Hurricane. St. George has shopping, restaurants, antique stores, and live theatres. Zion has hiking, biking along with great art galleries.

Our home is located in an exclusive subdivision with 30 other southwestern homes. We are located on 1.6 acres. The custom adobe home has acid etched floors through out the house with log pole ceilings. It is detailed with southwestern artifacts.

It has four bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms have queen size beds. The living room has a hide-a-bed couch that makes into a queen size bed. The fourth room has a trundle bed with two twin size beds.

There is a full bathroom between the Jack and Jill bedrooms. The master bedroom has its own bathroom with two sinks, a walkout shower and a large master closet. There is an additional half bath located close to the living area.

The kitchen is spacious and is next to the dining room that seats 6 people. There is a bar that seats 4 additional people.

There is a patio that goes the full length of the house. The dining area, living room and master suite all have French doors to access the patio. The outdoor area has a picnic table, fire pit, barbeque, chairs and a chaise lounge to enjoy the beautiful views.

There is a long front porch that is adorned with an 8' church pew and a sunken garden. Enjoy your morning coffee or your evening wine on the private patios with beautiful mountain views and spectular starry nights.

The rates are $195.00 for 6 or less people. The limit is 8 people with an additinal fee of $25 per night per person for the additional people. There is a non-refundable "Pet Fee" of $100.00 for one dog and $50.00 for each additional dog. No cats are allowed.

Beautiful, spacious place with a few quirks

  • 4 of 5

This house is a special place to stay, some ways away from the town. We four older adults loved the quiet and the views of desert and rock formations, as well as the sky at night, where we could see the Milky Way and various constellations.The attractively gardened front patio area as well as the larger, more open back area were great places to sit outside, to watch a sunset or changing light on the mountains. The house is comfortable and beautifully decorated, mostly Southwest style, with an excellent, well-equipped kitchen, lots of counter space, and good dining space for 6. The livingroom is delightful, though short on good reading lamps. The beds varied, but two out of three were fine for us. Everything worked well, except the sauna and the front gate latch. We met the owners on our last evening there. We really appreciated their sharing their former home with its appealing and tasteful colors, art, and textiles. It was a fairly pleasant,easy and interesting drive to Zion from there. We made that trip several times, and also enjoyed a day trip to the north rim of the Grand Canyon from there.

Owner's Response: Dear Susan, Thank you for your review. I appreciate your comments. Sorry to say but the guests that stayed over Labor Day broke the bed frame in one of the rooms. I since have bought a new bed and will replace it soon. I also went and bought a table lamp to go in the den next to the recliner to have as a reading lamp. I do listen to the reviews and try to accomdate my guests. Thank you for your suggestions. Sincerely, Kathryn

Great times

  • 5 of 5

The house is accessible to Zion, Bryce and Grand Canyon National Parks. Coming from a big city, it was very nice to spend a week away from city noise, lights, and to see starry nights and Milky Way. The house was very comfortable which contributed greatly to our very enjoyable vacation.

Visiting our daughter in Zion

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect house with incredible attention to detail. We loved the location! The kitchen was wonderfully stocked and we were able to cook big family dinners every night. The house is away from the tourists but also a short drive to Zion National Park. The decor in the house was rich with colors and fabrics and had a very warm feel to it. We can't thank the owners enough, for sharing their home with us!

Beautiful home near Zion

  • 5 of 5

Another couple, my husband and I spent four nights here, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were within easy driving distance of Zion National Park and Snow Canyon State Park. The home is spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything one might need. The owner lives nearby and checked in with us upon arrival to offer helpful tips; she even lent us hiking poles! We highly recommend this lovely home.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I loved the house. It was very clean and had all the amenities you could ask for. I liked that it was 30-45 min away from Zion - private, very quiet area and peaceful. Close proximity to grocery, golf and state parks. The owner was nice and accommodating - asking if we needed anything. I did feel a little apprehensive when the owner (who lives next door) questioned a piece of broken glass in the courtyard and the fact that she saw some recycling in the regular trash. I'm a very good tenant but felt a little uneasy knowing things were being checked up on every time I left the property. But other than that, it was perfect and I would definitely return! And highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Dear Tricia, While I was over watering the flowers in the court yard I noticed the broken beer bottle. That was why I asked you about it. Thank you for the review. Sincerely, Kathryn
