About Monte and Bonnie

We built our dream home from the ground up in 2006 as a second home with the goal of retiring here. As fate would have it we were able to achieve that goal in 2010. We added a pool and patio area in 2010 to make our guests experience even better. Recently added equestrian facilities which include a large arena with excellent footing, a four stall shed-row barn and a beautiful 50 foot covered round pen complete with full lighting and 16 foot fan. We have the best equestrian facility in the area.

Monte and Bonnie purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why Monte and Bonnie chose Utah

Our private, yet convenient location is ideal. The panoramic views of Zion and the surrounding area are spectacular with sunrise and sunsets especially breathtaking.

We are avid mountain bike riders and equestrians and enjoy all outdoor recreation and this location offer endless recreation opportunities.

Our location is private but not remote..we are only minutes from shopping, restaurants, gas stations and close to wilderness and Zion. Best of both worlds.

Every sunrise and sunset is magnificent and the desert and mountains make a perfect backdrop. BRING YOUR CAMERA!

What makes this bungalow unique

We are the only casita in the area offering true ride-out location with access to local mountain biking, hiking and horse trails. We are also the ONLY horse friendly property in the area.

Want to be surrounded by shops and buildings and 2.5 million visitors....stay somewhere else. If you want the beauty of the desert southwest and privacy book with us.

Our location is surrounded by Zion National Park and BLM lands which offer an abundence of recreation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great place to stay. If you are a mountain biker this is going to be THE place to stay in the Hurricane area. Monte and Bonnie are excellent hosts as well as fantastic guides. We rode Gooseberry Mesa and several other "locals only" trails that we never would have gotten the opportunity to sample on our own.



Accommodations are perfect for (2) couples or a small family.

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Monte and Bonnie are the perfect hosts. Living area was spacious, clean and had everything needed. The beautiful pool was just what was needed after a long day hiking at Zion. The gas fireplace by the pool was an added bonus on the starry nights. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend!

A Great Week in the Casita

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bonnie and Monty's excellent Casita in Virgin. The room had everything we needed for a comfortable week in southern Utah hiking the region all around Zion. It was very convenient to the park and reasonable services (groceries, etc) in Hurricane. The property setting is excellent and we awoke each morning to the view of the desert and surrounding mesas and mountains around the Virgin River. The pool was very relaxing. We will recommend this casita to other friends and family that may wish to travel to Zion while avoiding the crowds in Springdale.

Escape to Zion National Park

  • 5 of 5

After a long week in Vegas at a business conference, I wanted to take my best friend for a hike in the Narrows. I've stayed in VRBOs/AirBnbs/Flipkeys from San Diego to Chicago to Sarasota, and this casita is absolutely one the prettiest spots to unwind near a national park--and it is all centered in gorgeous landscape.

The pool is everything pictured; the friendly horses have jack rabbit friends; and the mesas loom over the casita. Wake up in the morning and sit in the wind garden to watch the sun rise. Visit the River Rock Roasting company in the morning just down the road.

The kitchen is well stocked. Although the queen blowup bed doesn't hold her shape, the Murphy bed is wonderful. There isn't any cable, but there is an "eclectic" collection of DVDs to choose from. You won't want to stay indoors at this place.

Loved it! Thank you!

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Monte & Bonnie's place for 2 nights while visiting Zion National Park. It was a perfect situation for us. The place was very clean and convenient to access the park (only about 15 min. drive away). Rarely do places look just like the pictures, but Monte & Bonnie's place does! They have a lovely casita that is well furnished and well taken care of. I would stay here again with zero hesitation.
