About Phillip Richins

I am a mostly-retired electrician who was tired of life in the big city and moved to rural southern Utah 20 years ago for a slower pace.

Phillip Richins purchased this house in 1995

Why Phillip Richins chose Orderville

This was the family home we built and lived in for 20 years while we raised our kids. We chose a house with a master suite away from the kids' rooms for some quiet, and put an addition on the back for more play room and better views of the mountains.

What makes this house unique

Porches front and back for enjoying the evenings, and a large second family room in the addition for movies and visiting. Great central location for visiting multiple parks, lakes, historical landmarks, skiing, hiking, and adventuring!

Not Like Advertised...Misleading

  • 1 of 5

We were very excited to stay at this house that seemed to be alongside a green pasture at the bottom of a mountain where you could explore and possibly picnic. We were shocked to see a shed in the back with an unfinished porch full of cobwebs and weeds. The house was old and what it seemed like to be in construction for a long time. Yes, the owners disclosed that the porch was being fixed, but there were pallets of hollow tile amongst the weeds, dead grass and rocks; and the lovely sight of a run down school bus in the neighbors backyard. There were really creepy dolls in each room which my son was terrified of and all of us ended up spending the night in the family room together. The locks/doorknobs were falling apart, cobwebs inside the house as well and stains all over the carpet. Also, note that the route taken (from gps) had us go through Zion and we were charged 35$ per car. That would've been nice to know as an option to take that or another route. We ended up taking the drive and it was very nice, which it did work out for us. There is no way there was x amount of dollars worth of cleaning done to this house. It was really disappointing and not like the pictures showed. I'm sad to have paid as much as I did for this house when there were other options available. This house was misleading and should be taken off the site until it is as advertised.

An Orderville cozy home between Zion and Bryce

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week in a large and comfortable home. The location was perfect for our travel plans visiting both Bryce and Zion National Parks. It was pleasant to be out of the tourist accommodations. A quiet, small Utah town. The first night, while looking for our vrbo home, we were aided by a woman who gave us a container of home made soup and rolls. Now that is SW hospitality!

Very comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly situated for exploring Zion ( and a little further to Bryce ). The house has all the facilities that you need and was clean and comfortable. We would come back.

Perfect location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Place was great. Easy to get into- grocery and gas 300 yards away. Location- 30 minutes to Zion, 60 minutes to Bryce, and 90 minutes to Grand Canyon. Place was clean, and perfect for a big group like mine. Thanks Phillip!!!!

A Great Home between Two Parks

  • 5 of 5

This was a spacious, modern house with a fairly new great room addition. Even in the middle of summer heat, the living room evaporator cooler quickly chilled the main living area. The owner responded to all of our questions. Beyond a clean, well maintained house, the attention to details gave an unexpected level of hospitality. Orderville has a small grocery store and gasoline station and is about halfway between two national parks.
