Overview

About the property

4400 sqft, 6 bd, 4 bath, game rm, theater, jacuzzi ,34'x18' POOL (fence/cover)

Casa de Zion provides a luxurious, yet comfortable, relaxing vacation escape situated on a bluff with panoramic views from our backyard of Zion National Park, Pine Valley Mountain, Gooseberry Mesa and Hurricane Valley spread out before you. This is a great location for family getaways, adventurers and corporate retreats seeking a central base to explore the surrounding National Parks of Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon North Rim and Lake Powell.

Casa de Zion comfortably sleeps 20 on brand new Serta beds. The master bedroom has a king bed with sitting room and en suite with two sink vanity, over size tub and huge walk-in tile shower. Upstairs there is a 2nd king bedroom with bunks, a double queen bedroom, single queen bedroom and two other queen bedrooms with bunk beds in each. There are 4 full-size bathrooms.

The gourmet kitchen is the center piece of the house. It was specifically designed for families and groups to enjoy meals together with enough seating for 10 at the dining table, 6 at the counter plus more seating for 8 at the bar and table in the adjacent casita. With gorgeous granite counter tops, beautiful cabinets and unique tile floors, the kitchen is fully stocked with high quality appliances including stainless steel refrigerator, gas stove, double oven, dishwasher and microwave as well as blender, crockpot, griddle, toaster, coffeemaker, etc. to help supplement your cooking experience. Dishes, cups, glasses, wine glasses, and silverware are supplied for 24. There is a full bath adjacent to the kitchen as well.

The covered back patio space is a fabulous extension of the family room and kitchen with a large stainless steel natural gas grill to cook your favorite meals and 2 outdoor tables for dining or just relaxing and visiting.

With 4400 sq. ft., there is plenty of room to spread out. Casa de Zion features a great room off the kitchen with a 48” flat-screen TV & Blue-ray, a getaway sitting room for reading and conversation, casita/theater room with a flat screen 65” Smart HDTV, Blu-ray player and game room with ping pong and king size foosball. Of course, high speed internet and satellite TV is provided. After a fun day of outdoor activities, you can relax in our 34’x18’ pool ($75 a day to heat if needed during late Fall, Winter, early Spring) encircled with plenty of chairs and chaise lounges. Since our pool is located on the East side of our home, afternoon shade is a welcomed relief. Our pool and hot tub offer breathtaking views of the majestic surrounding mountains.

The safety of our guests at Casa de Zion is of upmost importance. We have recently retrofitted our home with a whole house sprinkler system. There is a smoke alarm in every room and a fire extinguisher on each floor. The pool area is surrounded by a 6’ wrought iron fence and block wall. The gates leading to the pool area are key locked and cannot be easily opened by a child. In addition, the pool has a cover that is key locked. Our Jacuzzi spa has a cover as well as a cable across the top that has a secure key lock. Our home is located on a bluff overlooking the Hurricane Valley and has a 4’ wrought iron fence to protect young children.

We are within the immediate vicinity of world-class mountain biking trail systems such as Gooseberry Mesa, Little Creek Mesa and the JEM/Hurricane Rim Trails. Canyoneering, overland 4 x 4 driving tours, hiking, rock climbing and river tubing are other possibilities. In addition, close by are over a dozen golf courses, horseback riding, snow skiing, and Sand Hollow and Quail Creek reservoirs that feature boating, water sports, fishing and more!

Day trips to Zion National Park are just 25 minutes away. Hike Angel's Landing, the Narrows, the Subway, Weeping Rock, Emerald Pools, West Rim Trail, Court of the Patriarchs, slot canyons – so much to see and do in Zion! We are 100 miles from the North Rim of the Grand Canyon (1 hr 45 min), 130 miles from Bryce Canyon National Park (2 hr 10 min), 138 miles from Las Vegas (2 hr 7 min), just 19 miles from St. George (Snow Canyon State Park, Tuacahn Outdoor Amphitheatre) and 40 miles from Cedar City (World Famous Summer long Shakespeare Festival.)

Springs are beautiful with desert flowers in bloom. Summers are warm with low humidity. Autumn is magnificent with its colors. Winters are mild with average daytime temperatures in the 50s to 60s. So, anytime is the perfect time to visit this unique part of Southern Utah!

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 is just 9 years old and 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, a first class community pool, groceries stores, etc. within minutes. With our 10 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.

Very nice home.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very accommodating, and large which was great for our large group. The house has everything you need, is so close to Zion's, and was so clean and nice.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Nice home and pool and hot tub. One suggestion is that check out is too early. We suggest no earlier than 11:00 as hotels and condos in the area are. Even noon would be better after playing hard all weekend . It takes a longer when we you have a large family to get everything done and packed

Owner's Response: We greatly appreciate the five-star review that Lynette gave her family’s stay at Casa de Zion and are happy that they had such a good time. We also understand her desire to want to remain in the home longer to give her family extra time to pack up and leave. However, the 10 AM check-out and 3 PM check-in is stated in our contract because it is nearly impossible to clean our large home and make it ready for our new arriving guests in less than five hours. Our 4400 sq. ft. home has six bedrooms include a master bedroom and suite, four baths, a large living room, sitting room, theater room and casita, game room, large dining room, spacious kitchen and laundry room. Our cleaners have to change out bedding for two kings, five queens and six bunkbeds. The four bathrooms must be cleaned and sanitized, mirrors shinned, with all sink, tub and shower drains checked. Carpeting throughout the house is vacuumed, tile floors in the bathrooms, hallways and kitchen are swept and mopped. All surfaces throughout the house are dusted including the large TV cabinet with glass shelves. Also, baseboards need to be cleaned periodically. Kitchen and dining room cleanup is a huge job. Microwave, ovens, stove and three refrigerators are cleaned and dishes, silverware and other drawers are straightened out. Windows in the double doors leading to the patio, kitchen window and others as needed must be shinned. The jacuzzi is filled, chlorine tablets replaced, filters cleaned periodically and the patio swept and washed down. The barbeque is cleaned, the pool surface skimmed and all chairs and lounges in the pool area moved back into place and any trash cleaned up. The garage is swept and the front porch is swept and sprayed off. Our cleaners work non-stop from the time that they enter the house to close to the 3 PM check-in time for our next guests. It is amazing that they can accomplish the transformation of the house each and every time. In addition, we have our maintenance man come by and replace or fix anything our renters have apprised us of. We pride ourselves in offering our guests a clean, comfortable home to enhance their vacation experience in Southern Utah.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of eleven could not have been happier with our stay. The house was beautiful, well stocked, and had plenty of room to get together or have some quiet time. We absolutely loved it!

Beautiful home! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time visiting Utah and we picked the perfect home! Plenty of large rooms, a fully equipped modern kitchen, large dining area table, living room plus a theater room both with reclining sofas. Bedrooms were large, two with Juliet balconies, a large master suite, game room....everything you could possibly want in a vacation home. Outside private pool, jacuzzi, BBQ grill, dining table and a spectacular view of Zion in the distance. It's about an easy 25 minute ride to Zion and Springdale. Just over an hour and a half from Bryce. St. George is close by with lots of nice restaurants. Several state parks are also nearby. Just a great location. I would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone coming to the area!
