This was my first time staying at La Luz and the second for my wife and sister-in-law.
I love the architecture which utilizes passive solar heating/cooling techniques with an open kitchen/living/dining floor plan.
One of our favorite activities at the house was sitting on the patio at night after a day of adventure and looking at all the stars. This area of southern Utah has some of the least amount of light pollution in the country.
This house is perfect for two couples or a family. The only downside if you're two couples is that the there is only one shower, which is in the master bedroom, but the shower is fantastic.
I would definitely recommend this place to all my friends.
