You have options when it comes to booking your perfect vacation rental property, and we have affordable rates for both short and extended stay rentals. Give yourself a budget after doing some research, and then ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I want to rent a vacation home or a condo?
  • What area do I want to be closest to – St. George, Washington, Hurricane, or Ivins?
  • How many bedrooms/bathrooms do I need?
  • Which amenities would I like– Pool, pickleball courts, waterslide, etc.?
  • Are there young children in my group, and if so, does the rental provide any children’s items such as Pack N’ Plays, high chairs, etc… (yes, many of our rentals have these items and more.)

We can accommodate all of these needs and many others! Our rental properties range from 1 bedroom to 14 bedrooms with wheelchair-accessible units, lagoon-front units, and golf course communities.

2. Consider the location of your St. George vacation rental

Our vacation communities in St. George are located close to several state and national parks, historic sites, entertainment venues, dining, and shopping. Regardless of your rental’s location, you’ll find plenty to do only minutes away. As we previously mentioned, you can stay right on a golf course or find a rental with a private pool if that’s what you prefer.

3. Take advantage of onsite amenities

In addition to your luxurious rental, the extra perks of a vacation community make this type of property a very high value for the price!

Your pet is part of the family, so why should they be left out of the family vacation?
