What a find! Carla is a sweet, bright and interesting lady, with a lovely home. The bed was so comfy and she out did herself with the breakfast. The adorable town of St. George is within walking distance, and yet her historic home is up on a hill in a quiet neighborhood. This was one of our best stays on... More

From the time we stepped in, I knew we had made the right decision to stay at the Quicksand and Cactus B and B. Carla was welcoming, directed us to our comfortable room and gave us suggestions about local hiking. She also recommended local restaurants, which we did eat at. Her home is charming, comfortable, clean, and quiet. The breakfast... More

Called Carla late at night. We had a family crisis and found ourselves in a town that was overbooked. She was SO helpful and accommodating. We loved this cute place and what a breakfast! Like an oasis in the middle of the dessert. Thank you Carla!

Carla opened her home late at night to help our family during a crisis. She is a kind and compassionate soul with a beautiful home who can cook up a gourmet breakfast. Some bed and breakfast places offer very limited portions but Carla was generous and served a hearty meal. A truly great hostess.

Carla was an excellent and genuine hostess and her meals were very thoughtful and classy. We stayed three nights and I was amazed with what a superb cook she is! We loved how centrally located it was to everything in St. George. The property is breathtaking and the historic nature of the home is fascinating.

We stayed five days with Carla at the Quicksand and Cactus. Our stay was exceptional. We had a very comfortable room with a relaxing bed that treats backs with care. The breakfasts were superb. We can't say enough about them. We've never had tastier egg dishes. Carla is a great hostess. She was friendly and went out of her way... More

This is a fantastic little get-away overlooking the historic St. George Tabernacle. The historic home converted to a bed & breakfast is a neat little setting complete with historic features and photographs. It is also clean, comfortable and friendly.

We rented two rooms, and both were clean, comfortable, and well decorated. Both rooms had exterior doors, which was very convenient. The house was within walking distance of downtown St. George's restaurants and attractions. Carla was a gracious hostess and I can not say enough about her gourmet breakfasts which were delicious, served with visual appeal, and right on time.

Quicksand and Cactus B and B is an experience in the history of the St. George area. The house is almost 150 years old, yet it has all of the modern conveniences. It is only 2 blocks and a pleasant walk to the historical blocks with houses and buildings from the late 1800"s. The grounds, artwork fountains and statues all... More

You know that saying " as within, so without"? The inner condition of its lovely and gracious owner, Carla, reflects the energy and atmosphere of Quicksand and Cactus. Carla is caring and attentive without being obsequious, and is indubitably cultured but very accepting of cultural diversity. She is masterful in the art of conversation; she discreetly knows when to talk... More
