Ricki & Sandy Brown purchased this house in 2005
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.
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.
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....
We chose this home due to it's proximity to the GSE Nat'l Monument. It is so much more. Fabulous accommodations include a fully equipped kitchen, nice propane bar-b-cue and amazing bed. The owners live next door but keep a very low profile. They are available if you have questions. Ricki is very knowledgeable about the national monument and is intimately familiar with the hiking and drives in the area. The national monument is a rough gem and Ricky can give you tips in preparing properly for your adventures. Our stay was restful and the star-gazing was unbelievable! The home is nicely appointed and well maintained. It is a remote area, yet this home provides all the comforts you desire. We LOVED our visit!
The La Luz Retreat was everything and more for our 25th Anniversary Getaway. Ricki and Sandy are great hosts and where very kind to share their
knowledge about the area. They had great tips on where to hike, eat, and local points of interest. The online photos and descriptions of La Luz pale in comparison to actually being there. The layout and beautiful décor of La Luz make it feel like home. The views are spectacular at anytime of the day
or night, and the serene atmosphere is beyond relaxing. The location is ideal for exploring Escalante and the surrounding area, including many hiking
trails and local historic sights..( Tip: plan your hikes early in the morning to avoid big crowds especially Lower Calf Creek Falls ).
If you are looking for the perfect place to stay, look no further. We will definitely be staying here on future visits. Home away from home? This is it !!
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!
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!
