About Wayne Gardner
My wife & I have just gone into partnership with my wife sister and her husband. My wife & I are retired or at least we thought we were retires until we purchased this property. We live in the Salr Lake area and our partners live just down the road from Torrey in Loa, Utah. We have enjoyed the anticipation of making a nice place for people to stay.
Wayne Gardner purchased this Apartment in 2017
Why Wayne Gardner chose Torrey
My wife's sister called one day and said there's a piece of property in Torrey we want you to look at. We hesitated but decided to take the beautiful drive up to Torrey. It's a very nice drive so we couldn't lose. When we saw the place it was a no brainer. We fell in love with the house and the area around Torrey. What makes this property so interesting is that it was never suposted to be apartments. The couple that built it put the home above the garage for the view. Later, for health reasons and not able to clime stairs, they built another nice home where the garage was . Then a daughter need a place to stay so another addition was made. And then the Mother in-law needed cared for so another addition was made. Each addition having there own modern conveniences; made it perfect for what we have turned it into. We are proud to offer our home to traveler from all over the world.
What makes this Apartment unique
The entrance Capital Reef National Monument is approximately 7 miles from Torrey. The Grand Staircase National Monument is a 45 minute drive away, it's 90 Miles to Bryce Canyon National Park. There are guided tour based out of Torrey right in front of our place, hike, fishing and hunting. Breath takingly Beautiful scenery made up of red rock cliffs, pine covered mountain, beautiful valley farms, wild game in abundance. If it isn't hunting season their still beautiful to look at. Our large nice back yard is perfect for the kid and anyone else to have picnics and just play family games.

Capitol Reef NP

Location - Roomy - Clean - Comfortable bed - Plenty of hot water - Quiet - Washer/Dryer - Excellent Wi-Fi signal - The owners maintain their property quite well. Everything worked.
The bedroom is where one would expect the living room area to be. You open the front door and bam!…there is the bed. Odd, but not enough to spoil the stay.The layout seems to take advantage of the space so we understand the thinking. The main thing is the bed is comfortable… wherever it is placed.
The kitchen dining table is an outdoor type table and we kept bumping our knees into a metal support that is part of the middle base (we are not large people). We sat sideways and somewhat farther out to eat our food. A minor quirk.
We expected some information material about the area ,including Capitol Reef NP, but none was found. Again, minor, as we used our iPads to connect to the wi-fi for research. We only mention it as all other VRBO’s had reading material about the local area in the unit. Maybe we simply overlooked it.
The lockbox for the unit key is a killer! We struggled with both opening…and closing it. Maybe we need to take a ‘Lockbox 101 Orientation Class’.
The con’s above are minor and we only want to give an honest take overall. This is a good property.
Call it 4 1/2 stars ...not 4.
Would we stay here again? Probably. The location is about a 20 minute drive to Capitol Reef.
The park is wonderful. Being close meant we were able to make several hikes and see some beautiful sunsets without long drives back & forth.
Excellent location. Well appointed. Comfortable. Clean.

The apartment was roomy and kitchen was nice. Loved being able to do laundry without going out. Great internet, too. Only down note was no dishwasher. It wasn't bad without one, but you need to change the write up so people know not to expect it.
Heerlijke lokatie in Torrey
Wayne Gardner's vacation home is een accommodatie die precies aan onze wensen voldoet: fijne woonslaapkamer en een goede keuken. Dat vinden we veel fijner dan een hotel of motel. Bovendien is de ligging in een fantastisch gebied.
De suggestie is o de toegang tot de accommodatie iets duidelijke te vermelden. In de bevestiging van de boeking stond niet het nummer van de unit vermoed, wel de code van het kluisje. Gelukkig was er net iemand bij de accommodatie om ons te helpen.
Definitely would be back
This cute apartment had everything you would need during your stay. Bed was very comfortable, kitchen and bath had everything you would need. A plus was being able to pick apples off the apple trees in the backyard. There is no grill that goes with this apartment so you will have to bring your own. There were many very good restaurants in town if you didn't want to cook. There is no air conditioning in this unit, but you can ask for a fan to move the air around.
Geralyn and her husband were excellant guest. They were fun to talk to and treated our place as if it were their own. Please come back again.
Centrally located, clean and quiet.
What a great little apartment! Comfortable bed, and the spacious kitchen is nice. Close to a lot of shops on Torrey and of course, Capitol Reef. We hope to visit again.
Thank you Peter for your nice review. We do hope you will come again. From all of us at Velvet Ridge Lodging..
