One Queen room with private bath across the hall. . Good seperation of sleeping areas keep guest close yet private. Full kitchen plus outside cooking area with large gas grill and plenty of outside seating area. Both the front of the house and the rear patio area offer exceptional views and opportunities to choose shade or sunshine depending on the time of day. We have a maximum occupancy of 4 adults at any one time, this is to limit the impact on our home and our neighbors. Ideal renters would be a single couple or two couples. One of the special highlights of Kayenta is the communities preservation of the natural landscape habitat and night sky, the rear patio area of the house has an 'observatory' quality about it as you sit under the stars.

Xetava (Zay-Tah-Vah) restaurant, Coyote Gulch art Village and Kayenta Pool are a short walk from the house. ideal location for Triathlete's in training, cyclists and swimmers. Great trail running out the door, cycling and Sand Hollow Aquatic center is a 10 minute drive. Many Golf Course options in the greater St. George area if you want to practice your swing.

About Lars Onsrud

We have been spending time in Southern Utah for the past 15 years, once we found Kayenta it became a dream location for us.

Lars Onsrud purchased this house in 2013

Why Lars Onsrud chose Utah

Location , Location, location. The house is situated uniquely on a small rise giving the house a very private feel and excellent outdoor space. located on 1.8 acres

What makes this house unique

We love Zion! One hour to the visitor center and you can explore the park. Coming home to Kayenta and the magnificient views of the red rock cliffs, you feel like you are still in Zion, only in your private home and a more peaceful setting.

Red Rock Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month enjoying the beauty of both this wonderful home and the outstanding desert surrounding it.

We have been renting VRBO's for many years and have had some great experiences. This home is right at the top. You can see the owner's love of their home in all the lovely touches. There are spectacular views of the Red Mountain and all the surrounding mountains. The desert and the landscaping around the house is stunning. Kayenta is a very well planned community with Galleries and a very nice restaurant and a spectacular hike within walking distance of the house.

There is an abundance of things to do and places to explore in the St. George area. Kolob Canyon and the Red Cliffs Desert Preserve and Snow Canyon State Park are just a few of the many places to explore and hike.

In St. George there are fine restaurants and a very nice museum and other interesting historic buildings.

There were days when it was just nice to stay" at home" and enjoy all that the house had to offer.

We hope to return.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had an amazing stay at this very pleasant adobe. The owners are great and you can tell how much they care about the place and how much effort they put into making it nice.

We wish our stay was longer it was so nice going out during the day and so peaceful and relaxing sitting out at night. Lots of things to do around the area: national parks, local hiking and biking, cultural stuff and the nice town of St George a short drive away.

We had 4 people staying there but it could easily fit more.

Nothing seemed to go wrong and we had a great time- couldn't have been a better place to be! This place is highly recommended!

Best Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The home is completely set up for a relaxing, convenient and easy vacation- thoroughly well-stocked, prepared and very tidy. Owners were more than accommodating and patient. The community and the views are breathtaking and we cannot wait to come back.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

Kayenta is a great neighborhood and this home is situated in a fabulous location. From the home there are wonderful views of the red mountains, walking distance to the community pool and the artist's village. The home was very comfortable with many ammenities and very spacious. Great master bedroom/bathroom, outside back patio with a grill and views from the front patio! We sure did enjoy our stay and would welcome another opportunity to stay here again in the future.

Fantastic Home & In Perfect Condition

  • 5 of 5

My wife and myself love the area there is so much to do and at the end of the day we where so happy to come back to this home it was wonderful. The area we loved the best was the outdoor space where would have our mornings to ourselves looking at these mountains that we felt we could touch. We are making reservations for next year. Lars & Marijke the owner's must have spent some time thinking about this home there was nothing that we where without they thought of everything and it was so clean when we got there we just could not belive this home and how perfect it was. Next year we are going to stay for a month!!!!!!!!!!
