Charming yurt with beautiful views
We had a wonderful time enjoying our very first yurt experience in such a beautiful location! Highly recommend especially if you are going to Zion, it is definitely worth the drive! The yurt was charming and quaint. Falling asleep being able to see the night sky with its skylight/bubble was unforgettable. It had solar powered electricity to charge our phones which was a plus coming from tent camping in Zion. The composting toilet was clean and odorless with a light for nighttime use. One of us was even able to take a hot shower! Advice if multiple people are hoping to shower: don’t turn the shower off in between like we did. Also advise to bring bug spray as the yurt is surrounded by juniper trees attracting gnats, they were just slightly annoying but didn’t seem to bite. Alex the owner was very responsive and helpful.
Alex has positioned his yurt for decent privacy and stunning views of red rock cliffs. Great proximity to mountain biking and Zion park as well.
This simple accommodations are well crafted and cared for. And, Alex is very responsive as a host. I’d most definitely stay again!
A beautiful stay
We absolutely loved the dessert yurt on Alex's land! The views were breathtaking and it had all the amenities needed to make our stay both enjoyable and comfortable. Alex came over and introduced himself the second night and ensured we had all that we needed to enjoy our stay. He also was kind enough to walk my husband through how to use the thermostat to regulate the temperature of the fire place as well as how to use the shower system. We got the inside scoop on where to travel and how to get there taking the most scenically beautiful routes. We can't say enough about this property and the host! Thank you Alex! We hope to see you again soon when we tour in our RV!
The yurt on Alex’s property was amazing! The views were awesome during the day and at night with all the stars. There was multiple charging outlets, lights, a heater, and a shower! Everything was very well thought out :) I would definitely stay here again!
Spectacular stay! Alex was communicative and helpful. The yurt was spacious and has incredible views of the stars at night! It even has lights, a solar-bank for your phone and hot water in the shower. Will return when we come back to Zion!
Yurt camping is the way to go!! 😊
This was such a wonderful experience! We were already super excited at the concept of staying in a yurt and were please to find how comfortable it was, despite the chilly nights there. The hot shower, the gas stove, and the power bank to charge our phones were a definite plus and made our trip so enjoyable! 10/10 would definitely come back!
Can’t wait to return!
Really great setup. You can tell the layout of the campsite was well thought out. The yurt has a small but nice deck. A separate picnic table and benches sit in their own area. A hammock is nicely set up. And finally the clean and smartly set up outhouse with compostable toilet and a separate outdoor shower. I was only there for a brief overnight stay, but I wish I had more time!
This place is wonderful!! Great view, very clean, comfy and so cute. We enjoyed our stay in this amazing yurt. The view at sunset was amazing and the night stars were spectacular. Alex was so very nice and easy to contact.
Perfect stay near zion!
We loved staying at Alex’s yurt! Not only was the place beautiful, but Alex was so helpful in answering any questions we had. Alex thought through all of the details when creating this space. There is a solar setup that is perfect for charging your phone/ cameras, the stove was AMAZING! It kept us toasty on a cold night. The place is surrounded by beautiful views and is only about 50 minutes from Zion! We slept GREAT. The sheets were soft and it was really clean! Would recommend to anyone and return in the future. Far better than staying in any of the hotels around the area!
