About the property

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. Acienda is 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. Acienda has four bedrooms. Two bedrooms have double beds and the master suite has a queen size bed. The fourth bedroom is a 'kids' room equipped with a futon that can sleep two and its own T.V. and VCR. The living room has a hide-a-bed couch that makes into a queen size bed. 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 8 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 porch in the front of the house 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. Additional $65.00 per adult and $25.00 per child for over 6. Pet fee of $100.00 for one dog and $50.00 for each additional dog.

Wonderful Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations. You could not want for anything. Great location for visiting Zion National Park and many other locations in the area. Kathryn and John were so helpful with many recommendations of place to see and go in the area. The location and the quietness of unbelievable. Didn't realize how noisey our neighborhood was until we returned home. Plenty of room for all your family, friends or guests. Big plus it was dog-friendly. Our little guy loved walking outside and seeing the rabbits and roadrunners go bye. We loved the area so much we actually purchased a home while in Hurricane. We can't wait to sell our house and move. We definitely recommendation this place.

a wonderful accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Very charming and comfortable accommodations. A large home that generously provides private sleeping for a family of 5. Decorated in a southwest decor bringing charm to our stay. A quiet, private area close to Zion and local hiking. A wonderful property for just hanging out or using it as a base from which to explore the area. The hosts are most accommodating.

Escape From New England

  • 5 of 5

This Hurricane adobe house was a terrific home away from home for my wife and I for a week, though it could have easily accommodated 8 or more. A beautiful oasis with breathtaking views, it was the perfect spot to use as a hub for our day trips exploring, and to unwind each evening. A large well-equipped kitchen had everything a chef would need. The beds were extremely comfortable. Bathrooms more than ample and conveniently located. Great quality towels and linens.

Katheryn and Captain John were engaging, available next door if/when needed, and the source of great information and recommendations. The back patio is a great place to eat breakfast or unwind with a glass of wine after a day of hiking.

The sofa bed in the living room was not all that comfortable to sit on (time to replace ??), and I wish there were a wider array of cable tv channels available than just the minimal base package. Internet service was great. Wish we could have stayed another week or two, as we barely made a dent in what is available to see within 2 1/2 hours. Next time I will bring my golf clubs because there are some high quality golf courses nearby. Overall, this place was a gem. Thank you John and Katheryn.

wonderful southwestern retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in a quiet location overlooking the mountains. Thank you for sharing your rental home with us. The home was clean, had all the amenities, lots of dishes and pots and pans to cook on, with a dish washer, and washer and dryer. We grilled out every night. The rooms were comfortable. Nice large kitchen and kitchen table. It was an easy 1/2 hour drive to Zion and 2 1/2 to Bryce. The owners are wonderful and answered all my calls and questions previous to renting.

Yet another great stay in a beautiful secluded hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this location and again we had an excellent time. The house was spacious, clean and comfortable. We are already planning our next stay in the spring. You can't beat the beautiful views and the proximity to Local stores and restaurants and yet still close to Zion.
