About Gordon Harkness
My wife (Bridget) is from North Wales and I (Gordon) grew up in Southern California. We moved to Utah 34 years ago raising a family of five children. Zion National Park has been a favorite vacation destination along with beautiful Lake Powell. We have managed a vacation home in the Park City, Utah area for over ten years. Recently, we sold that property and feel fortunate to have found the perfect home, centrally located, to enjoy the beauty and grandeur of Southern Utah - particularly Zion National Park and the many diverse sites in the surrounding area.
Gordon Harkness purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Gordon Harkness chose Hurricane
We made numerous trips to this area looking for a comfortable home that our children and grandchildren would want to visit and that we could share with travelers eager to experience what we have enjoyed through the years. We chose to name it Casa de Zion (House of Zion). We promise that we will do everything we can to make your visit a most pleasant and memorable vacation!
What makes this Villa unique
This home has all of the amenities you would expect to find in an upscale vacation home. We are located on a bluff overlooking Hurricane Valley with the Red Cliffs National Conservation Area across the street from our home. So, you are above and away from the city and yet you have the convenience of restaurants, parks, groceries stores, WalMart (6 miles away), etc. within minutes. With our 13 years of experience in the vacation rental business, we feel we have anticipated all of the features and services you would desire in a home away from home.

So very beautiful! And it was very clean! Thank you.
It was amazing! Maybe you could have more towels and wash cloths.
Our group spent a wonderful week in this spacious, beautiful home. We had unanimous praise for the comfortable bedding and furniture, garden, hot tub, large kitchen with room for everyone, and proximity to many hiking and biking areas in town, St. George, and Zion National Park. Thanks, Gordon and Bridget!
This house was awesome for our big family! And the owners were very great to work with!
Beautiful and very spacious!!
We had a large group, so I was nervous that we might be on top of each other in the vacation home. When we got there I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was more than enough room for all of us, of all ages, to spread out! The game room was great, and held the noise in well. The kids loved the pool, and it was so nice to be able to have it heated, since the weather was unseasonably cold. I also really loved that it was gated off so that I didn’t have to worry about my 4 year old. Everything was super clean, and family friendly. The theater room was nice for gamers, and watching late night movies without keeping anyone up. Bridget was excellent to work with, and very responsive. We had an amazing time, and I would definitely stay here again!!
A Win Win for our team!
This house had a great set up for us, as we had our lacrosse girls down in Washington for a tournament. With most of the bedrooms upstairs, all the girls found a bed up there. While the adults were able to use the master bedroom on the main floor away from giggly girls.
The owners were great to help us find light switches hidding behind planters, and space heaters as the weather was unseasonably cold there. In fact I was impressed the owners were so available and prompt to help us with any worries we had.
The home is more spacious than the pictures imply. Giving space and comfort for all. I felt bad that we didn't even use the theater room for a movie, we just used it as a quiet space for the adults to eat once meals were served.
We would visit again in a heartbeat, and enjoyed our stay here. Thanks for sharing your home with us!!
Excellent place very clean and comfortable.
The house was amazing the kids loved the pool, which we had heated. Everything was clean and well taken care of. Bridget was very responsive and helpful. We go to the St. George area a couple times a year and would love to stay here again.
