A secluded feeling and private setting on one acre, only approx. 15 min to St. George and 75 min to Zion. Experienced hikers can hit the trail right through the backyard and trek 6 miles into stunning Snow Canyon Park (or drive to the many trail heads minutes away.) Back home you will revel in comfort, ambiance, luxurious touches and multiple gathering places. This house is ideal for families, couples, solo adventurers, business travelers and furry friends (on approval.)

The space

It's difficult to know how to describe it when you find a space/location that simply has a great "energy" and feeling, but you know this immediately upon entering our house. Previous owners built it custom with great care in the details and a love and respect for the gorgeous high desert surround, which you experience through its large windows. The house is extremely well insulated and that, along with the fact that we are about 12 miles north from St George, result in a 10 degree cooler difference during the hot months. Even the drive from St. George to the house is quite spectacular, and it doesn't hurt any that it is on a low use highway on which you clip along at 65 mph!

Lastly: my penchant for design and details will, hopefully, delight your senses! I believe in surrounding myself with beautiful hand-made objects, made by regional artists, and for this reason I decorated with as much original art as I could. No generic hotel type prints here :-)

Guest access

The whole house and a 2 car garage.

Interaction with guests

I'm an attentive cyber-host, if that's not an oxymoron! Basically, I'm accessible but not intrusive. Also, I have a great local support team if something needs to be addressed during your stay.

Other things to note

Your breakfast: if you choose to enjoy it, is supplies for a delicious oatmeal deal: oats, brown sugar and raisins. Additionally, there is a Keurig coffee machine, a couple of types of coffee pods, a filter made to use with this Keurig if you bring/buy your own ground coffee, and an assortment of tea.

We loved staying at Leticia's house! We had a friend reunion there, 3 couples and 4 children (ages 2-4) and we were perfectly comfortable. The house is a great layout and makes for an easy place to hang out while cooking which is always a must when we rent homes. It was also very clean and very well stocked which many of your previous guests have mentioned. We didn't need for anything which is always great! The location is pretty remote, about 25 minutes from St George. To us, it was great because we would walk around the neighborhood and see the horses at every turn and the little cotton tailed bunnies scampering around. The only issue was that you couldn't just run out for a carton of milk easily, but if you planned accordingly it was not a big deal at all! We were close enough to many of the parks, Red Cliff Recreation Area and Pine Valley were two of the closest and favorite spots. Red Cliffs for the hiking and Pine Valley for fishing and cooler hiking around. We did one day in Zion which was well worth the hour and a half drive! Honestly, one of the best days on our trip! St George is also great- an amazing splash pad (better than anything I've ever seen on the east coast) and children's museum downtown which gave our kids more than enough to do. We really loved our stay here and couldn't have asked for a better trip!! We highly recommend Leticia's house and seeing all that the St. George area has to offer!

Thank you for your kind words, and so pleased you enjoyed your stay. As for the "carton of milk", there actually is a store in Veyo, the teeny town that's really just an intersection, but just two miles north. Not much to see there BUT they do have basic provisions for buying and a pretty darn great pie shop..! Next time :-)?

Leticia's St. George get away is in a lovely quiet area with great access to Snow Canyon State Park, Zion and about 2 hours from Bryce National Park. The beds are extremely comfortable, the kitchen is very well appointed and the attention to detail is wonderful. Nearby, there is a pool called the Veyo Pool that is well worth the visit to beat the heat. It is the only pool open on a Sunday that we could find. Snow Canyon is a treasure and the proximity to this state park is one of the biggest selling points of this wonderful home. Thanks you!

Chris also meant to share this with folks: "For our first Air BnB experience, this one sold us on the idea. Was great to have our own home base for our little family instead of being in a plain old boring hotel. Leticia was extremely professional and respectful of our privacy. The house was stocked with everything we needed. Not sure we will stay in a hotel again.”

We absolutely loved our stay at True Retreat by Snow Canyon! It was just my husband and myself in that gorgeous house! We wanted to spend our 2 year wedding anniversary in Utah and this was the perfect location and price for our budget! Leticia communicated with us very well! The whole experience was way better than we could have hoped for!

Leticia was a great host. She had the house incredibly well stocked. It features a great kitchen, full of anything you could ever need to cook, and store food. We loved that coffee pods were provided for the Keurig, along with nice things to have such as ziploc bags, and aluminum foil. The beds were wonderful, too! We all slept very comfortably. The bathrooms were stocked with Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash, and Lotion, which was very helpful. This really was the perfect house for entertaining the entire group. Just a heads up: there was literally zero cell service on any of our networks (Verizon, Att, Sprint). The area is still being developed, so I'm sure this will change very soon. Leticia also has great wifi, and we weren't out there to spend too much time on our phones, so it wasn't an issue for us. She also provided a land line, just in case. Also good to keep in mind, it is a little ways out from town (just as Latecia has it listed). The drive to and from beautiful, though, with all of the red rocks; and it was close to Snow Canyon National Park. Overall, it is truly a great house, and we would definitely return. Thank you Leticia!

Five things I don't wish to live without: music, books, art, theatre and really, really great food.

Five places I'd go back to in a heartbeat: Oaxaca, Mexico, a beautiful tranquil beach most anywhere in the world, southwest Utah, Tucson, Arizona, Manhattan.

About my listing in Walla Walla: I fell in love with Walla Walla while living there following my graduation from Whitman College. I was an 'older student' and moved there with my 12 year old son. It proved to be an idyllic setting for us. If Norman Rockwell had drawn a portrait of a young single mother/student with her boy, we might have been it! I worked, while a student, as a bilingual interpreter for a family planning clinic and also Child Protective Services. After graduating, I became the Teen Outreach Educator for Planned Parenthood and continued working for CPS, as a social worker. I loved my jobs and co-workers! I also volunteered for the City of Walla Walla on a Hispanic Advisory Committee and for the United Way. There was much good work to be done in Walla Walla and I loved this little town...BUT, it was tough to be single here and so I said to myself: get thee to a big city! (And to Seattle I went.) BUT... I never forgot the good feelings engendered by this “land of many waters” and so when I had the opportunity to do so, I purchased a property. I dreamed of having it be my vacation home, but the timing was wrong and so it became a month to month rental instead Now, after many years, my dream has true and me and my family have a lovely place to land for weekend getaways. AND I get to share the place with you and do my best as the owner/property manager to give you the best experience you've had in a vacation rental. I truly intend to master the ART of the vacation rental!
