We chose Escalante as a base to see Bryce, Zion, Capitol Reef and Kodachrome. La Luz was perfect. Ricki and Sandy were wonderful and very helpful! Ricki's insight into local , "off the beaten path" attractions were spot on. We followed his advice were were very thankful for his expertise and directions! The house was lovely and the view from...

My husband and I and some friends stayed at the La Luz in April of 2015. I already seen pics of the house but it exceeded our expectations. As stated in the previous reviews the house has a wonderful feel and flow. The kitchen is fabulous and the house is thoughtfully put together to meet any needs you might have.... More

This is a terrific home, in a perfect location on the edge of Escalante proper, owned by two really wonderful and helpful owners. You've never seen nor likely stayed in such beauty, inside and out. La Luz, one of three rentals Ricki and Sandy own, is a home they first built for themselves then downsized right next to it with... More

The outside look is quite distinctive in color and shape. Locals call it the shoebox. The inside is beautifully designed and comfortable. All the comforts of home plus a spectacular view from the living room. I would definitely stay again when in the area.

We used this as a base for exploring Escalante and it was a dream vacation. First the house is very unusual and the design and craftsmanship are much better than the typical rental or certainly any hotel. This is no cookie cutter holiday rental. The cabinets are more like fine furniture, every detail is well thought out and executed. We... More

The owners of the home are very helpful but unobtrusive. The beds are comfortable, the layout good for two couples or a family of four. There are laundry facilities in the garage along with a nice barbeque. The only drawback is there is only one shower even though there are two bathrooms. It's a very nice solar home with lots...

This fresh new home is thoughtfully designed and decorated for both comfort and beauty, with lots of nice touches. While it's conveniently located right in town, La Luz looks out onto mountains, not other houses. It was quiet, peaceful, and offered everything we wanted after a day of exploring the natural wonders of the area. The owners were knowledgeable, hospitable... More

This is a fresh, modern, well-designed base from which to explore the glories of the Escalante region. All the comforts of home - and then some - have been thoughtfully provided and are in excellent working order: sub-zero fridge, DW, gas grill, W/D, excellent shower facility, comfortable beds and furnishings, surprisingly good internet access for the remoteness of the location,...

Thanks to the hosts for a perfect location to all the fun in the Grand Staircase region. We had such a good time in the area that we want to go back soon. We enjoyed lazy mornings and sitting out on the patio in the evening with the Milky Way above us - the night sky is amazing. We certainly... More

Great access to hikes in the Grand Staircase region. Our hosts were knowledgeable about the roads, hikes, flora and fauna of the area. One mile walk or ride into town with a couple of fun restaurants and a couple of full service outfitters. The house is luxurious, with a glamerous new kitchen design, comfortables beds and a beautiful view from... More
