From Zion hotels to motels, campgrounds, and vacation rentals, visitors to Southern Utah have plenty of options when it comes to lodging. Each offers its own unique benefits. But if you’re traveling with a family, planning a longer stay, or want to enjoy some of the comforts of home while on the go, Zion National Park vacation rentals may be the best option for you.
Watchman Villas is home to Zion’s premier vacation rentals. Our property features five luxury villas, including both one- and two-bedroom options that can accommodate everyone from solo travelers to larger families.
Still on the fence about choosing where to stay on your next Southern Utah adventure? Keep reading to learn 7 benefits of booking Zion National Park vacation rentals.
1. A Fully Equipped Kitchen and Living Room
Looking for a place to relax after a long day of hiking? Want to spend some quality time with friends and family during your stay? Or maybe you’re facing a rainy day, and looking to host a movie marathon or game-filled afternoon? Most Zion hotels offer little more than a bed or two to sit on. If you book a suite, you may also get a small couch or a table and chairs. Neither offers a comfortable space to relax, especially for extended periods or with larger groups.
One of the biggest perks of booking a villa at Watchman Villas is enjoying a spacious living room, dining room, and a fully-equipped kitchen. Relax on the couch and loveseat with friends and family while you swap stories about your day. Cook a fun family meal — or maybe a late night snack — in the kitchen, and enjoy it around the large dining table. This perk is especially useful for longer stays or families traveling together.
2. Outdoor Areas With Views of Zion
Another big perk of choosing a vacation rental from Watchman Villas is enjoying a private outdoor space with views of Zion National Park. The type of outdoor space you get will vary depending on which villa you choose. The Aspen Villa features the largest space. This 1,500 square foot outdoor living space features a private hot tub, outdoor furniture, and even an outdoor dining space.
Even the smaller balconies and patios of our other units feature some great views and are perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee or doing a little stargazing in the evenings.
3. Access to a Resort Swimming Pool
Dreaming of swimming in Zion National Park? The Zion Lodge doesn’t have a pool, and swimming in the Virgin River isn’t recommended. But you can get pretty close to swimming in ZIon National Park when you stay at Watchman Villas!
Guests at our Zion National Park vacation rentals enjoy access to the pool at our partner property, Cliffrose Lodge. Their stunning outdoor pool and hot tubs are situated alongside the Virgin River, with incredible views of Zion’s peaks towering far above you. The brand new pools are heated and are open to guests year-round.
4. An In-Unit Washer and Dryer
There’s nothing worse than having to pack dirty, stinky laundry in your suitcase before your return home. But with an in-unit washer and dryer in every villa, you won’t have to!
This perk is also great for longer stays or those looking to pack light for their trip. You can easily wash clothes to wear for the rest of your trip, saving you space and even money on your luggage.
5. A Great Location
Watchman Villas is located less than a mile and a half from the South Entrance to Zion National Park. It’s located even closer to a shuttle stop for the Springdale Shuttle! This stop is located right at the front of the property. This means that you can leave your car at your villa to avoid the hassle of finding parking closer to the park. Hop on the shuttle, and ride to the entrance to the park, where you can then hop on the Zion Canyon Shuttle to enjoy easy access to the Lower Canyon’s many trails, overlooks, and other attractions.
6. Space for the Whole Family
Our one-bedroom villas each feature a master bedroom with a King bed, as well as a sofa bed in the living room. These units are great for small families, couples, and solo travelers. The separate living space and bedroom gives you room to relax and space to spread out, which is great for longer trips or anyone who enjoys relaxing in their villa during their trip.
Those traveling with a larger family or group of friends will love the added space of our two-bedroom villas. In addition to a master bedroom with a King bed and a sleeper sofa, these vacation rentals also include a second bedroom with two queen beds and its own en-suite bathroom.
