Staying at Watchman Villas is already a great way to save on your next Southern Utah vacation. From a washer and dryer to a full kitchen, each of our Zion rentals is equipped with the comforts of home, making it easy to pack less and wash your clothes, make a dinner instead of dining out, or host a fun and inexpensive family game night.

But there are plenty of other ways to save on our Utah villas. Keep reading for a few simple ideas that can help you save big on your stay!

1. Visit During the Off-Season

If your travel plans are flexible, one easy way to save on Zion rentals is to plan a visit during the off-season. Most visitors to Southern Utah make their way here during the summer months. But while it’s true that summer brings clear weather and long days, it’s also the busiest time of year in Zion, as well as the hottest.

Winter is one of the best times of year to visit Zion National Park. You’ll enjoy empty trails, cooler temperatures, and even the chance to see the park become a winter wonderland after it snows. There are even some activities that you can only enjoy in the winter, like skiing at nearby Brian Head Resort or cross-country skiing in Bryce Canyon National Park.

From late fall to late spring, rental rates for cabins near Zion National Park tend to be lower. This can be a great way to save some money on your rental. Use it to book a longer stay, upgrade to larger Utah villas, dine out at Springdale restaurants, or maybe enjoy some exciting adventures, like an ATV tour.

2. Travel With Friends

At Watchman Villas, we have a couple of different types of Zion rentals to choose from. If you’re looking to save on your next vacation and are traveling with family and friends, consider booking a larger unit to split with your group.

For instance, The Aspen villa features two bedrooms, with a king bed and an en-suite bathroom in one and two queen beds and a second full bathroom in the other. In addition to having room to sleep your whole group, you’ll also get a spacious living room to relax in together, and a full kitchen and dining room in case you want to save even more money by cooking a meal or two instead of going out to Springdale restaurants.

3. Stay Close to Zion

There’s more than one way to save on your next vacation. Saving on Zion rentals is one option. But another is to consider how the right Utah villas can help save you money.

We already mentioned taking advantage of the full kitchen in your villa to cook a meal and save on dining out at Springdale restaurants. But another way that our cabins near Zion National Park help you save is by avoiding parking fees.

Visitors staying outside of Springdale have to find parking in town before riding the Zion Canyon Shuttle. While parking in Zion is free, the lots fill quickly, leaving you with no choice but to pay to park in Springdale. Lots are available in town, but you’ll have to pay to park each day of your visit. When you stay at Watchman Villas, you can stay parked at your villa, and hop on the Springdale Shuttle to ride to the entrance to the park for free.

4. Take Advantage of Deals

At Watchman Villas, we often release seasonal deals to help you save on your stay. For instance, right now, when you book a stay of four or more nights in one of our Zion rentals before June 30, you’ll enjoy a 25 percent discount on your stay.
