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.

Perfect retreat, relaxed or active

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect retreat for a relaxed stay or an active one. We were there for a week, hiked every day. The house is very well situated for most hikes. It is also very well equipped with all you need to cook at home, plus local information. We have rented many VRBO places, and this rates among the very best. We stayed in the larger house, and saw the smaller one. They are both spectacular. Rickie is very knowledgeable and helpful. We did not see Sandy much. They are available, but certainly not hovering at all. Book this if you want a special place in Escalante.

Our family of 5 loved this place! Great location and close to everything; even mountain bike trails right from house. Classy top-end kitchen and comfortable beds. The hosts were very helpful with local hikes and trails. Would highly recommend this place!

wonderfull house

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at La Luz, and for a good reason. This is the perfect getaway if you dream for a comfortable place where you can return after a long day in a slot canyon or you just want a peaceful place to enjoy the views and relax. This is a house build with love and one can tell by looking at all the details; it is fancy enough for a remote area like Escalante and it offers everything that a family of four would need for an incredible stay. The owners are very nice ,helpful and they won't bother you at all, they're practically invisible even though they live next door. We will definitively come back another time, hopefully soon enough. Thank you for everything!

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic time hiking beautiful canyons during the day and returning each night to a comfortable bed and hot shower. Wifi was very reliable and the house had everything we needed. There's even a view. Will look forward to returning.

Modern Base Camp in the heart of the Grand Staircase.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great comfortable home base for any stop over in Escalante. Modern kitchen, heated floors, comfortable beds and world class views from every room. There are great indoor and outdoor spaces. The pictures and description are real. Ricki is a great source of local knowledge.

Fascinating place.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed my stay. The decor was electic, clean and everything was in good working order. The shower was especially interesting as it was 2 stories tall! The owner, Rick Brown was interesting and knowledgeable. I really appreciated the fresh vegetables from his garden. Too bad I didn't stay long enough to see the outcome of his elk hunt. Hope it went well. The scenery was spectacular with very black skies and a great star show. Would recommend this rental to anyone.
