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.

Perfect location and fantastic house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as described. We had 7 in our group and we were very comfortable. The property is very peaceful and such a great location. The shuttles were easy to use, there were great restaurants and activities nearby. Catrin was easy to work with and provided great guidance. We were all very pleased. Thank you!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Six of us spent a week at Nama-stay. We loved the house. It is beautiful, spacious and a very restful place to stay. It is close to the shuttle stop in to Zion. It is within walking distance to all the downtown restaurants and the grocery store. The house itself is a ranch style house. The living room has a cathedral ceiling. One wall is a glass window with a beautiful view of the mountain. There is a large well stocked kitchen , a dining room , family room with a tv and sound system. There are three bedrooms the master bedroom has a bath. This bedroom has two king size beds. The second bedroom has a

King sized bed. The third bedroom has a double bed and a twin bed. There is a beautiful porch in the back with a grill and an ouside dinning area Our host Catrin met us at the house to orient us to the area and the house. She gave us valuable tips on hiking and the best trails to do and things to see Cathrin and Johnathan were very gracious hosts and gave us important information about hiking and the area in general. If you plan on hiking in the Narrows Zion Guru has the best prices on equipment that you will need. The staff at Zion Guru have maps and information about all the hikes in the area. Over all we loved the house and would highly recommend staying there.

Great house, stunning view and very convenient

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Nama-Stay. I was pleasantly surprised at how convenient it was to the town, supermarket and shuttle service yet it was tucked away and peaceful. The back deck was very peaceful and lovely. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook. The house itself was beautiful and the owners gracious. The only minor annoyances were that we had to take off our shoes in the house and there was no smoking out in the back yard.

My 3 grown sons and I did a guys trip to Zion NP for a 4 day GET-away. Nana-Stay was a perfect spotfor us. Very comfortable, well appointed, close Walk to town, grocery and Town shuttle. Did I mention the awesome view and personalized care of Catrin. We also did a canyonering trip with Zion Guru her husband Jonathan's company. Well worth the adventure. All in all lot of fun and perfect accommodations.

The home is beautiful and very well maintained. It's proximity to downtown Springdale is ideal.

  • 5 of 5

The home is clearly well taken care of and is very spacious. The views out the back are spectacular. The owners, Catrin and Jonathan Zambella, were very helpful and clearly have their hearts in the home. All shopping and services, including the shuttle, are within easy walking distance and we would highly recommend staying there for anyone interested in visiting Zion, or just enjoying the beauty of Springdale and the Zion area.
