About the property

Clean affordable home base for hiking and biking in a recreational heaven

Remodel is now complete on the inside. We think it turned out really well. We replaced all of the doors, cabinets, flooring, bathroom fixtures, painted etc. Our first guest arrived July 1, 2015.

Next we will be working on the outside/yard area.

There are two bedrooms, one is larger than the other. One has a king bed and one has a queen size bed. We provide all linens and towels.

We call this a "make your own bed and breakfast" place. We do have complimentary pancake mix and syrup to get your day started right.

There is a large space for RV parking besides having a parking area in front as well as on the street.

We are in the process of putting in an outdoor eating area with a shade canopy. We also have a barbecue to grill up a wonderful steak or some chicken.

There is a washer and dryer there for your use along with internet service.

We have a DVD player if you want to watch a movie you bring or check one out at a nearby Red Box location. We also have ROKU so be sure to bring your Netflix password. NOTE: There are no antenna channels available.


The area is nice, lots of trees and hollyhocks. Our property address is 21 E. 70 N. La Verkin, UT 84745 if you want to look at the street view. The pictures you see will not be what you see when you come since they were taken long ago and we have painted etc. The home that is to the West of us is not that pretty, but I don't think you are coming to Southern Utah to compare houses, you are coming to have a wonderful time for yourself going biking or hiking or just getting away. We are very proud of our reviews and don't want anyone to say ' Hey I had a great time and it was just as described, but there was an ugly house next door.

We would love to have you book with us and become another one of our satisfied customers.

About Monica Murset

Hi! I am Carolyn Murset. My husband and I moved to southern Utah 30 + years ago. because of the magnificent scenery and the equally magnificent people. We had two children when we moved here and now have five. We have 13 grand children who all love this part of the world. It is no wonder so many people visit here, and then end up staying. My husband loves to take pictures and has hung a few at our properties for you to enjoy. He is partial to black and white photography. Our youngest daughter also seems to have caught the bug and you will also see some of her photos as well. I love to sing, act, play the guitar and have hundreds of other interests. It was my idea to start down this road with a vacation rental and we believe it has been a great thing for us and for our fellow travelers. We like to travel, but don't seem to do it as often as we would like to. In fact, we just got our passports!

Monica Murset purchased this house in 2007

What makes this house unique

If you are coming to Southern Utah to take in the scenery, having a home base is invaluable. You can make a pack lunch and come home to crockpot meal or barbque and save a bundle. This is on a very quiet street away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. (We consider St. George to be the big City), but still close enough to a Walmart and Costco if you like.

Guestbook comments from the owner


My son, daughter-in-law, husband, and I stayed two nights at this fantastic rental while visiting Zion National Park. The owners have gone to great lengths to anticipate guests' every need and wish. During our stay, it was hot outside but cool and pleasant inside. Hot water for showers and dishes was in abundant supply (but you needn't do dishes; the dishwasher will take care of that task if you want). When we decided we were too tired to go out for a restaurant meal, we picked up frozen pizza at Davis Market (only a few blocks away) and baked it on the stone provided in the rental. Beds were comfy, and the television set up worked well for us. I did wonder if we had it turned up too loud and hope that we didn't bother any of the neighbors with the movie we watched the night we arrived.

We were even able to do a couple of laundry loads, a great feature for those who have been traveling. We prefer not to use a dryer, so we were glad to find plenty of closet space and hangers in the two bedrooms to air dry our clothes after washing them. (If you use a dryer, you'll be pleased to know that one is provided.)

Initially, we didn't see the flyswatter but soon found it along with two lighters for the grill which is located in the back yard. A nice patio set is in place there as well.

All communication between us and the owner went smoothly. I would return in an instant if I could. We felt pampered and blessed.

Spacious and comfy home near Zion

  • 5 of 5

We were going to spend some time near Zion and some of the other great parks in Utah. Found this nice duplex about 1/2 hour from Springdale/Zion. Unit was clean, had a nicely stocked kitchen, is near several grocery stores (Davis and Lin are the names I recall that we shopped at - both good selection and even had some organic produce).

W&D were nice as we were hiking a bunch and didn't want to pack tons of clothes - just washed them. A/C worked great, everything in working order, easy to move in/out. Good communication from the owners. Nicely priced - much cheaper than the Springdale options.

This is a great location for being near the area, and you're also near a number of other great hikes and areas that are worth visiting. Utah is beautiful, we didn't have enough time to see all of Zion and the surrounding outdoor wonders, so we're definitely coming back here!

Cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Cozy home with everything we needed after a day at Zion National Park. Generally everything was clean and orderly, well supplied. We appreciated being able to rent for only a few days. Much nicer than a hotel room.

Decent space but needs a good cleaning

  • 3 of 5

It seems lv2 gets good reviews, but we just had some issues. Overall as a whole the place was no where near as clean as other VRBO stops we've stayed at. Our WiFi also stopped working. It was 105 when we stayed so we never used the back porch but it definitely needs a canopy.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really liked Rich’s place! Superclean, comfortable home. Had another couple with us and it was perfect for the four of us. Plenty of room. Though We didn’t cook or do laundry, everything one needs to do that is there. Great! Would definitely stay there again.
