  • Excellent Choice

    "Our family had a fantastic stay at your beautiful townhouse in St. George. Everything in the home was in great shape and we could tell that the owners take good care of their place. We loved how open the floor plan was and how much room there was to spread out and how much elbow room we all had. The home was clean and very well stocked. The grounds we well manicured. We loved the little putting green. We are already planning our next trip to southern Utah and will stay here again."

  • Great Summer Spot

    "Second time around for this condominium was even better! The kitchen is remodeled and easily accommodates family dinners. This unit is one of few at Canyons/Red Pines that also has air conditioning. With a pool, tennis court, volleyball court and lots of grassy areas for activities in the complex, this is a great place to stay with a family or group. Also, close to a bike path to Park City, and several wonderful golf courses. As before the entire condo was in great condition. Definitely one of the best units at Red Pines. Thank you for another great 4th of July."

  • A great location for a Family Reunion!

    "We stayed here for a week for our family reunion and had a wonderful time. The house has much going for it and accommodated our extended family well. Marci tried to make our stay comfortable as we had a few issues and they were addressed as quickly as she could. We gave the owner, Jake, some recommendations to make the stay even more seamless. This is a BIG HOUSE and is a very comfortable one. It was rather hot this week and the AC did a splendid job keeping us cool. The reservoir is within 15 minutes of the house and was a great place to spend our summer days."
