About the property

New Modern, One Story House With 2 Bedrooms,2 Bathrooms And 2 Large Patios

WELCOME TO OUR TORREY VACATION HOME

Our home is new and modern with an open layout your family and guests will love. Professionally decorated, each room is simple yet of high quality. Large windows and sliding glass doors allow you to experience every sunrise, sunset, and magnificent scenery without ever stepping outside. When you do step out, you step onto two large patios designed for your comfort, a place to relax, read or to entertain. As you dine, the balmy breezes and red rock vistas just add to your enjoyment.

For your privacy, the home has bedrooms and bathrooms on opposite ends. One bathroom features a large, rain head shower and the other a Jacuzzi tub. Each bedroom opens onto a private patio. The beds, mattresses and linens are of high quality for a good night’s sleep. For your convenience, we have a new stacking washer and dryer, if needed.

If cooking is your passion, look no further. Our vacation home kitchen is complete. All new Stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and island. You’ll find all of the cooking tools you need from good, sharp knifes to quality pots and pans. The cupboards are filled with dishes, utensils and glasses, mixing bowls and the main staples – flour, sugar, coffee, spices, plus more. Included are top of the line coffee and tea maker, waffle iron, ice cream /sorbet maker, popcorn popper, pancake griddle, blender, mixer, etc. You’ll love preparing your meals as you look out the 8’ window to the creek below and the clouds forming over the Boulder Mountains.

The east patio has a first-class, gas, BBQ with a beautiful wicker table that seats six. There are also two lounge chairs with ottomans for relaxing and watching for wild turkeys, rabbits, deer and elk that frequent the area. We enjoy our morning coffee watching the sun come up from this patio. The west patio and entrance to the house is best for the views of the red rock vistas and sunsets from the two lounge chairs and ottomans. Both patios are covered for year round enjoyment. Off the patio are gravity loungers for star gazing.

We also have all the electronics you’ll need – large screen cable TV, DVD/Blue Ray player, high speed Wi-Fi internet and wireless printer. Relax in front of the fireplace while watching the game or catch up on emails at the desk in the master bedroom.

We are located minutes away from beautiful hiking and biking trails, National Forests, Torrey Town and its restaurants, bars and shopping, and the gateway to Capitol Reef National Park. Other Utah destinations like Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and Lake Powell, are within hours drive making our home a perfect base camp.

We are always available for any information or questions you may have about our home and the surrounding area. Call 801-518-2918

We look forward to your sojourn to our Capitol Reef Vacation Home in Torrey, Utah.

About Martin & Linda Townsend

We purchased our 1st piece of property here in Torrey, Utah in 1981 with the idea of eventually retiring here. Now that we have sold our business we decided to build this vacation home which enables us enjoy this area year round. We love the hiking, fishing, exploring, picnics in the park and the patio parties our family and friends enjoy. Torrey has always been a special place to rest and renew ourselves, a place of discovery.

Martin & Linda Townsend purchased this house in 2014

Why Martin & Linda Townsend chose Utah

We bought this property because of the magnificent red rock views and the creek that runs through the back of our property under the cottonwood trees. We are within 100 yards of national forest land that provides unbelievable hiking and exploring. At 7,000 ft. with mountains above us and desert below, there is always a soft breeze that makes the temperature here very comfortable, especially for sleeping. Star watching at night is incredible, when was the last time you saw the Milky Way?

What makes this house unique

A benefit of our home is the proximity to the town, restaurants, bars and Capital Reef National Park. Other things of benefit is it’s one level, heating and air conditioned, multiple large widows to bring the outside in, well stocked kitchen for those of us who love to cook and large patios to entertain on.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

This property really felt like home. Martin had everything supplied wonderfully, from soap and shampoo to cold drinks in the fridge. He came to meet us and ensured we knew where everything was and how everything worked. Our favorite stay of many on our trip to Utah.

Absolutely fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views, beautiful house, immaculately clean and stocked with pretty much everything - including some cold and delicious Utah beers! Linda and Martin met us as we were getting settled in and took time to show us around the place. The setting is absolutely stunning and we enjoyed those beers watching the sunset on the lovely covered patio. It makes a perfect base camp for exploring the area. Can't wait to return!

5+ stars house

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this house. So peaceful. It has everything you need! Well appointed kitchen. Martin and Linda are the nicest owners to deal with. If you are planning on staying in the area (Capital Reef NP, Grand Staircase Escalante NM) then this is the house to stay in!

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home in a beautiful setting. The owners are very thoughtful in the amenities they provide for their guests. They exhibit generosity and care in the variety of food and beverages that are provided for guests. This is my second visit with them and I find it so relaxing to stay in their comfortable home.

Can I move in!

  • 5 of 5

I travel a ton and this was the best rental home I have ever stayed in... way exceeded expectations. First off, Linda and Martin are so sweet and were even so kind to send some Utah and state park maps ahead of our trip out. The home is like a little hideaway on the bluff and the views out the windows every which way can't be beat. It was so clean and well stocked, we kept talking about how awesome everything was. The town of Torrey is super cute and lot's of little gems to check out, the general store being one of them.

Thanks for an awesome stay/experience guys!

Best VRBO during our trip

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Martini were great Hosts. There house was just as described. We were two couples and loved the arrangement. Two bedrooms and two baths of each end of the house, with shared space in between. The porches were wonderful for looking at the night sky.

We have never stayed in a place that had so much for the guests, soda, beer, pancake and syrup. Spices and a full pantry!

Everyone who does VRBO could learn from them!
