About the property

New Modern, One Story House With 2 Bedrooms,2 Bathrooms And 2 Large Patios

WELCOME TO OUR TORREY VACATION HOME

Our home is new and modern with an open layout your family and guests will love. Professionally decorated, each room is simple yet of high quality. Large windows and sliding glass doors allow you to experience every sunrise, sunset, and magnificent scenery without ever stepping outside. When you do step out, you step onto two large patios designed for your comfort, a place to relax, read or to entertain. As you dine, the balmy breezes and red rock vistas just add to your enjoyment.

For your privacy, the home has bedrooms and bathrooms on opposite ends. One bathroom features a large, rain head shower and the other a Jacuzzi tub. Each bedroom opens onto a private patio. The beds, mattresses and linens are of high quality for a good night’s sleep. For your convenience, we have a new stacking washer and dryer, if needed.

If cooking is your passion, look no further. Our vacation home kitchen is complete. All new Stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and island. You’ll find all of the cooking tools you need from good, sharp knifes to quality pots and pans. The cupboards are filled with dishes, utensils and glasses, mixing bowls and the main staples – flour, sugar, coffee, spices, plus more. Included are top of the line coffee and tea maker, waffle iron, ice cream /sorbet maker, popcorn popper, pancake griddle, blender, mixer, etc. You’ll love preparing your meals as you look out the 8’ window to the creek below and the clouds forming over the Boulder Mountains.

The east patio has a first-class, gas, BBQ with a beautiful wicker table that seats six. There are also two lounge chairs with ottomans for relaxing and watching for wild turkeys, rabbits, deer and elk that frequent the area. We enjoy our morning coffee watching the sun come up from this patio. The west patio and entrance to the house is best for the views of the red rock vistas and sunsets from the two lounge chairs and ottomans. Both patios are covered for year round enjoyment. Off the patio are gravity loungers for star gazing.

We also have all the electronics you’ll need – large screen cable TV, DVD/Blue Ray player, high speed Wi-Fi internet and wireless printer. Relax in front of the fireplace while watching the game or catch up on emails at the desk in the master bedroom.

We are located minutes away from beautiful hiking and biking trails, National Forests, Torrey Town and its restaurants, bars and shopping, and the gateway to Capitol Reef National Park. Other Utah destinations like Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and Lake Powell, are within hours drive making our home a perfect base camp.

We are always available for any information or questions you may have about our home and the surrounding area. Call 801-518-2918

We look forward to your sojourn to our Capitol Reef Vacation Home in Torrey, Utah.

About Martin & Linda Townsend

We purchased our 1st piece of property here in Torrey, Utah in 1981 with the idea of eventually retiring here. Now that we have sold our business we decided to build this vacation home which enables us enjoy this area year round. We love the hiking, fishing, exploring, picnics in the park and the patio parties our family and friends enjoy. Torrey has always been a special place to rest and renew ourselves, a place of discovery.

Martin & Linda Townsend purchased this house in 2014

Why Martin & Linda Townsend chose Torrey

We bought this property because of the magnificent red rock views and the creek that runs through the back of our property under the cottonwood trees. We are within 100 yards of national forest land that provides unbelievable hiking and exploring. At 7,000 ft. with mountains above us and desert below, there is always a soft breeze that makes the temperature here very comfortable, especially for sleeping. Star watching at night is incredible, when was the last time you saw the Milky Way?

What makes this house unique

A benefit of our home is the proximity to the town, restaurants, bars and Capital Reef National Park. Other things of benefit is it’s one level, heating and air conditioned, multiple large widows to bring the outside in, well stocked kitchen for those of us who love to cook and large patios to entertain on.

Absolute, without a doubt the best rental we've stayed in

  • 5 of 5

A 15+ year user of vacation rentals this one has risen to the top. Don't know how the owners did it but anything and everything needed for a comfortable stay was here. First off the house was spotless-pretty clear the owners want guests to have a good experience. Kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, decks, furniture , tv, internet....everything was top of the line. Little things like a first aid kit, Q-tips, every possible kitchen utensil imaginable, sun block.....it goes on and on-the owners have stocked everything you might need. The only bad thing is all future rentals will be compared to this one-if they come close I'd be surprised and very happy.

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

The House had more than we expected. Martin and Linda created a well equippted, lovely house. We felt like heaven on earth:). We would definitely spend holidays here again, but we would stay longer. Thank you Linda and Martin that we could stay in your amazing house. It was the best place we ever stayed in on our 4 week journey. It was clean, well stocked and Linda and Martin were perfect Hosts. If it would be possible we would give 6 or more stars. Regards from Switzerland:)

Best VRBO stay ever. Couldn't have been more pleased.

  • 5 of 5

Photos of this property do not do it justice. So we'll appointed inside. Two porches make morning and evening options delightful. Hosts go out of there way to make sure you have everything you forgot to bring for your stay. Excellent place for two couples-- the layout of bedrooms on either side of living kitchen area gives privacy. We're definitely going back if we can find available dates.

The Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3 adults stayed here while visiting Capital Reef National Park. The house is the perfect place to stay in close proximity to the park. It was super clean and well laid out. We loved, loved, loved the zero gravity chairs for star gazing in the back yard.

Every room offers stellar views which constantly change as the sun moves across the sky. Miss it already!

This was our second stay at the Townsend's beautiful vacation rental and it was fantastic....again! Martin and Linda have anticipated every need and created a comfortable, beautiful and cozy home. It's the launching pad for a million outdoor adventures in the Torrey area and beyond. We love this place!
