About Catrin and Jonathan Zambella

Catrin and Jonathan Zambella have lived in Springdale, UT, at the footsteps of Zion National Park for over a decade. With their son Massimo, they host your visits to Zion and the grandeur of Southern Utah. Catrin, originally from Switzerland, inspired the Zen-like feel of Nama-Stay and spends her time home schooling Massimo, studying natural healing practices, and exploring the summits of Zion National Park. After 15 years running Zion's premiere outfitter and guide service, Jonathan now offers custom, exclusive canyoneering and climbing trips around the globe, maintaining his expertise on the immense activities Zion offers. Massimo helps us maintain our child-like spirit of investigation and recreation, and charms visitors into playful respites. We live humbly in our small cabin on the Nama-Stay property and look forward to serving you the best Zion has to offer.

Catrin and Jonathan Zambella purchased this house in 2002

Why Catrin and Jonathan Zambella chose Utah

In the late 80's Mark Austin and the former owners design and built the house that is now Nama-Stay on a remote lot surrounded by forest and horse pastures. Though Springdale has grown a great deal since that time, Nama-Stay maintains its quaint nature of a ranch house and privacy of an off street home. Nama-Stay was built aligned north-south, with great summer shade and winter sun, with gasping views and privacy all the same.

What makes this house unique

Hardwood ash, cherry, and bamboo floors throughout. Open layout with vaulted ceilings, eight-foot picture windows, and room for Yoga, Qigong, meditation, executive meetings, and specialty groups. Amazing acoustics throughout. Extensive front and backyard patio spaces. Private, quiet, yet conveniently located minutes from shopping, restaurants, and Park activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nama-Stay is a special oasis in the desert. It will take you beyond the normal retreat atmosphere and catapult you into the pristine nature of Nature. In other words, it is difficult to language the magic Nama-Stay embodies, because each moment is an experience of heighten awareness.



Senses awaken to the gifts offered by the proprietors. Each bedroom is filled with the essence of pure nature and divine blessings. Each room is lightly touched with pure intention for each guest to receive loving nurturance while resting, playing, cooking, and contemplating. And the property and patio lends itself to morning meditations, teaching, sharings and dining while the sun sets gracing the canyon walls.



Nama-Stay is a slice of heaven in the book of ‘Places to Retreat’. You will see what I mean when you visit yourself. It will take your breath away, as it does mine, each time I visit, and I have visited several times now. Nama-Stay is the way to retreat.

Idyllic retreat with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home with absolutely breathtaking views. Tucked away from the main thoroughfare heading to Zion National Park, you have privacy with a feeling of solitude, yet you are just a half block away from a lovely, little grocery store for your convenience. Here you can pick up essentials, wonderful snacks and pre-made salads, sauces, local delicacies, etc. to make your stay very pleasurable indeed.

Catrin recommended the best restaurant for dinner

with outdoor seating, delicious food, and the bonus of a couple of very handsome horses grazing in the pasture with a backdrop to die for. Bring your camera for capturing a glorious sunset in this bucolic setting. For breakfast /lunch we loved Me Me....French inspired, eclectic decor and a fun, satisfying menu.

Namastay was perfect for our group of 3 couples and one more adult. The outdoor conversation pit was perfect for decompressing and socializing after a day of exploring, hiking, and being immersed in the beauty of Zion. A bonus for me was enjoying the daily sightings of the deer and chickens happily grazing together in the back yard.

Preparing meals was a breeze in the well equipped kitchen. The dining table fit all 7 of us comfortably, and we had a fun time playing games at the table at night.

Catrin and Jonathan are delightful hosts, available by text to answer any questions, and we found that they could be at your doorstep should assistance with anything arise. A hint for future visitors: Use their knowledge of the area at the get go to help you decide where to start your explorations.

Katrin arranged for a massage therapist to come to the home to give my husband and I a very therapeutic session that was needed after a couple of days of hiking. She can also arrange for private yoga sessions, and since the house is used for yoga retreats, all the mats and cushions are conveniently located in the main living space if you want to go it alone.

The gong in the master bedroom was enjoyed by all, as a gentle wakeup call at 6:30 a.m. each morning. We found that getting out as early as possible was a plus for escaping any crowds .

Zion was at the start of our two week Utah National Park experience, and also our favorite. We fell in love with Utah, and look forward to a return visit in the future.

Great house near Zion

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a terrific location to visit Zion. It is in very good condition and quiet as is off the main road. The great room is very open with a great view. The kitchen is well equipped with a gas stove (note: no microwave) and there is a gas grill and nice patio. Beds are comfortable. Grocery store is steps away.

We loved this well maintained property which seeks to capture an energy. With yoga mats, comfortable seating, a well equipped kitchen and extremely helpful hosts, who could ask for more in this lovely town. Close to Zion National Park with frequent shuttle bus service.

Beautiful and relaxing home

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 6 adults and 2 kids. We had a great time hiking all over Zion and then coming home to such a relaxing place. The patio had tons of seating, the dining table was plenty large, and the great room was massive. Waking up to the sun on the cliffs was spectacular, as was enjoying a glass of wine while watching the sunset. Catrin and Jonathan were awesome hosts and we really enjoyed getting to know them a bit.
