When it comes to planning a vacation to Zion National Park and the rest of Southern Utah, you have no shortage of options on where to stay. Springdale, Utah is home to a variety of lodging options, from Zion National Park hotels and resorts to Airbnbs and other vacation rentals. But while hotels and resorts are a popular option, Springdale Utah vacation rentals offer some clear perks.

It features 5 unique private villas, including three 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom villas and two 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom villas.

1. More Space to Relax
One of the biggest perks Springdale Utah vacation rentals have to offer over hotels and resorts is space to relax and room for your whole family.
Maybe you’re a couple looking to relax after a long day of hiking in Zion. Or you’re traveling with kids or even a couple of families. In any case, most standard hotel rooms simply won’t cut it. At best, you might have a couch or chair to sit in. At worst, you’ll have only a bed or two, in a single room, alongside a small bathroom.
While some hotel rooms offer kitchenettes or a small workspace, they are rarely comfortable for longer stays. They may not even be very comfortable on shorter stays if you plan to spend time in your room.
But Zion rentals like Watchman Villas solve this issue. Each of our private villas features separate bedrooms and large living rooms. Our two-bedroom villas feature both a Master Suite with a king bed and a second bedroom with two queen beds, as well as two bathrooms. This makes them a comfortable and more affordable option for travelers looking for more space or who need to accommodate larger families or groups.
2. The Ability to Cook and Enjoy Meals
Some hotel rooms feature a small kitchenette with a mini fridge and perhaps a coffee maker. But if you want to save money during your trip by cooking some meals in, or want the option to enjoy late night snacks or a quick breakfast in your room, your options are limited.
Our Springdale Utah vacation rentals are different. Instead of a kitchenette or basic coffee maker, each of our villas features a fully equipped kitchen. Not only will you find a full fridge, stove, microwave, and coffeemaker, but our kitchens are also equipped with pots and pans, dishes, silverware, and everything else you’ll need to whip up tasty meals, late night snacks, and everything in between. Each villa also has a dining room with a dining table perfect for enjoying a meal with your family while you plan your next day’s adventure.
3. Enjoy Some Features of Home
In addition to full kitchens and separate living spaces, another thing that sets Zion rentals apart from hotels are the added touches of home. Each unit includes a washer and dryer—no worrying about bringing change and waiting around in a shared laundry room in a hotel! Sofa beds in the living room are great for sleeping extra family members, or for lounging on while enjoying a movie night. There are even writing desks in each Watchman Villa that are perfect for squeezing in some remote work during your stay!
4. The Option for Outdoor Living Spaces
One bonus feature that many people don’t think about when booking a vacation rental is the option for outdoor living space. Not all Zion rentals offer this perk. But each of our five villas has an outdoor space, ranging from a balcony with views of Zion to massive, 1,500 square foot patios complete with an outdoor living and lounge area and a private hot tub, not to mention stunning views of Zion’s peaks!
Having access to an outdoor living space might not make or break your stay. However, having the ability to fully enjoy the beauty of Southern Utah from the privacy of your own patio can be another great way to make some new memories with your family that you’ll always treasure!
5. Some Added Privacy
Hotels and resorts typically offer little in the way of privacy. Between the interior entrances where each guest has to pass to get to their room, to constant housekeeping runs, you’re often surrounded by people.
At Watchman Villas, each of our villas offers exterior entrances and remote check-ins. While you can still request housekeeping as needed, this is a great way to ensure a more private, relaxing stay for you and your family.
