Thinking about planning a family getaway in Southern Utah? While there is no shortage of hotels, motels, and other types of lodging available in the area, Springdale Utah vacation rentals offer a number of clear benefits — especially for families.

Make Sure You Have Room to Stretch Out
Whether you’re a family of 3 or a family of 8, having room to stretch out and relax after a long day can be the difference between a fun vacation and constant bickering and restless nights. Make sure that your vacation is relaxing — for everyone — by choosing a vacation rental that offers room for everyone to stretch out at the end of the day.
At Watchman Villas, we offer both one- and two-bedroom villas. All of our villas feature open concept living spaces, with couches great for unwinding and watching some TV, and dining tables with room for your family to enjoy a meal together. With our two-bedroom villas, you’ll enjoy a large master bedroom with a king bed and an en suite bathroom, as well as a second bedroom with two queen beds and its own separate bathroom. No blowing up air mattresses or waiting in line to get a shower!
Opt for Outdoor Living Areas
If your family is one that likes to spend some time relaxing during your vacation but still wants to experience your destination, look for a vacation rental with outdoor living space.
The Aspen, one of our two-bedroom villas, features a whopping 1,500 square feet of outdoor living space. It includes a private hot tub, as well as an outdoor living and lounge area. This expansive patio offers stunning views of Zion’s peaks, without having to leave the comfort of your villa!
While The Aspen features the largest outdoor space, the rest of the villas also offer either a balcony or private patio space for guests to enjoy.
Check the Ease of Access to a Variety of Attractions
When it comes to Utah vacation ideas, Zion National Park often tops the list. As the nation’s third most-visited national park, Zion is a bucket-list destination for many families.
While your private villa can feel as though it’s a world away, Watchman Villas is conveniently located about a mile from the entrance to the park. It’s also just steps away from a shuttle stop on the Springdale Shuttle line. This shuttle will take you to the entrance to Zion, where you can hop on the Zion Canyon Shuttle.
This shuttle system is the only way to access the Lower Canyon of the park for much of the year. Finding parking for the Zion Canyon Shuttle can often be a challenge. Having a shuttle stop just a short walk away can help your family avoid this hassle, and give you more time to spend enjoying the park!
But while Zion tops the list of Utah vacation ideas for many families, it’s far from the only natural attraction that Southern Utah has to offer. There are also a number of state parks and even a couple more national parks just a few hour’s drive or less from Springdale. This makes it easy to customize your trip to fit your family’s interests, without having to move to a new hotel every few days.
Enjoy The Comforts of Home While You’re Away
When traveling with kids, having some of the comforts of home can go a long way toward reducing hassles and stress during your trip.
An ensuite washer and dryer can help you reduce how much you have to pack or help you clean up after a day of exploring. A fully stocked kitchen is perfect for whipping up quick breakfasts or saving some money on family dinners during your stay. Having separate bedrooms makes it easier for little ones to take a nap while the rest of the family relaxes, plays games, or watches TV. You’ll find all of these homey touches and more when you book a stay at Watchman Villas.
