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 Bryce Canyon

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.

A Truly Blissful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here March 29 - April 3, 2015. A really amazing house and view. The house is more than you could ask for and was close to all the places we wanted to go see. Loved, loved the shower and kitchen was as nice as I own myself (if not nicer). I'm in a wheelchair so there was a little figuring out to get into the house from my ramp van, but we managed and Ricky was more than willing to help with that. We didn't use the upstairs bedroom and bathroom at all, but my husband said it was a really nice place for another couple. We traveled from Washington State and made sure our last night's stop was in Murray, Utah. We stalked up on yummy food and produce from the Trader Joe's before driving into Escalante that day. Since we arrived in Escalante on a Sunday that was a good thing as pretty much the grocery store and every restaurant was closed on Sundays. We cooked our breakfasts and dinners at the house and it worked out great. We brought our own wine, beer and hard liquor, but did find the Beer Cave located where we rented an ATV for the day. Great beer available there!! Didn't realize until day 3, but the spigot on the kitchen sink next to the faucet is actually an instant hot water spigot. That worked great for our morning tea and coffee. I'd come back in a second to stay here. Make sure you see Bryce Canyon, Kodochrome, Capitol Reef and the Burr Trail. A gorgeous part of the country.

Perfect Property!

  • 5 of 5

When you combine the private feel, the nice view, the little patio, good wi-fi, the 15 foot walk to your car, a couple of perfectly placed benches for your hiking gear, and great use of space (and loved the big walk-in shower)....you have La Luz. While the property is lovely and clean I finally figured out that it was the sheer convenience of having everything in the right place and at my fingertips that I loved so much. Traveler tip: If you love relaxing and eating in after a day of hiking you may want to make a grocery stop before you get to Escalante. As much as I want to put my dollars into the local economy I visit, their grocery store is very small and limited in fresh meat and produce. We had better luck over in Tropic at their store and if you have special meals planned you'll want to load your coolers up and bring it with you. That said, we also enjoyed one meal at Escalante Outfitters. Our experience here was so wonderful the only other property I'd consider staying in if this one wasn't available would be this owner's OTHER property they have next door. So many places we still want to visit here.

great

  • 5 of 5

This house is excellent for 4-6 people with a functional kitchen including coffee grinder and maker, a full bathroom and a half bathroom, etc. Ricky is extremely knowledgable about the area and is fun to chat with. The sunrise and sunset views are outstanding. Located right on the Smoky Mountain Road on the outskirts of Escalante. A way better place to stay than the local motels.

Best place to stay in Escalante!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place! The two bedrooms are great and the kitchen appliances are better than most peoples primary homes. The passive solar heating/cooling and garden is inspirational. I definitely recommend this place for two couples, or a small family.

Desert Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Luz with a group of four. We had a wonderful time. The home is beautifully done, clean and comfortable. It is in a great location with easy access to all the area has to offer. Great patio to enjoy morning coffee or evening wine. The kitchen is well stocked with all you need to cook. The owners were great and available to answer questions we had about where to hike. Overall, it was an incredible vacation and I highly recommend La Luz.

La Luz proved to be one of the most unique and livable rentals in this area of Utah-centrally located and first rate accomodations with amicable host. The attention to detail in the home is impressive.
