About the property

A peaceful home located away from city lights and city noise!

"Acienda" is in a "dry" county. It is best if you get your alcohol before you arrive. It is much cheaper in LasVegas.

We have the best of two world's. We are located half way between St. George (less than 20 miles) and Zion National Park (a little more than 20 miles). Acienda is located near the quaint town of Hurricane. St. George has shopping, restaurants, antique stores, and live theatres. Zion has hiking, biking along with great art galleries.

Our home is located in an exclusive subdivision with 30 other southwestern homes. We are located on 1.6 acres. The custom adobe home has acid etched floors through out the house with log pole ceilings. It is detailed with southwestern artifacts.

It has four bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king size bed. The jack annd jill bedrooms have queen size beds. The fourth bedroom has a trundle bed with two twin size beds.

There is a full bathroom between the Jack and Jill bedrooms. The master bedroom has its own bathroom with two sinks, a walkout shower and a large master closet. There is an additional half bath located close to the living area.

The kitchen is spacious and is next to the dining room that seats 6 people. There is a bar that seats 4 additional people.

There is a patio that goes the full length of the house. The dining area, living room and master suite all have French doors to access the patio. The outdoor area has a picnic table, fire pit, barbeque, chairs and a chaise lounge to enjoy the beautiful views.

There is a long front porch that is adorned with an 8' church pew and a sunken garden. Enjoy your morning coffee or your evening wine on the private patios with beautiful mountain views and spectular starry nights.

The rates are $195.00 for 6 or less people. The limit is 8 people with an additional fee of $50 per night per person for the additional people. There is a non-refundable "Pet Fee" of $100.00 for one dog and $50.00 for each additional dog (per week). N o cats are allowed.

Secluded community south of Hurricane. Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this place: roomy, comfy beds, cool master suite, easy access. Community tucked against base of mesa and lots nestled in amongst creosote bushes - so fragrant! Great as a launch point for either northern or southern entrances to Zion NP. Teenage sons report happiness with the wi-fi so that passed muster! A+

The Aciends was perfect for our family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The Acienda was the perfect destination for our family vacation to Zion National Park and the surrounding areas. It’s location was perfect for our excursions to Zion, Bryce Canyon and Lower Antelope Canyon. The owners were accommodating and the house had everything we needed.

Great location to Zion National Park!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house and very welcoming owners. John was there to greet us and gave us a quick tour. The house was clean, plenty of kitchen accesories (I cook a lot) and the house was stocked with the basics. He also quickly came over to assist with the grill when I phoned (user error, I didn’t turn the gas on...haha). Loved the area, secluded, and quite. We saw jack rabbits, lizards and other wildlife. The kids loved “exploring”.

Both John and Kathryn visited at the end of our stay to checkin which was very sweet. I would absolutely come back and will recommend to friends.

Hurricane Rocks!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and well stocked when we arrived. We enjoyed our stay and loved the house even more as the week progressed toward the last day of our vacation. The property is far enough from town to make you feel like you are secluded, but not for enough to make the drive into town arduous. We were 15 minutes away from downtown Hurricane and 20 minutes from ZION; our main destination. It was always nice to return to the house after a long day on the road or after a half day horseback ride. With that said, I would like to see better quality locks on each door, as there are multiple entry and exit points around the house that can be easily manipulated and opened. But don't put too much stock on my opinion, I have a thing for security. The locks do what they are supposed to do; secure the house.

I would definitely return, as well as recommend the house to friends and family members.

Perfect location for hiking adventures. It felt like home.

  • 5 of 5

So happy that my husband and I had the opportunity to stay in this cozy, charming, and beautiful, Hacienda. We had a wonderful time. The house is centrally located to so many different hiking spots, and yet so remote and peaceful. It was great talking with Captain John and Kathryn only to discover that they had some Ohio roots as well! If we are blessed enough to return to Utah, we would definitely love to stay here again!
