About Joe Gibilterra

I purchased this property as a personal retreat to use while I'm in Southern Utah.

Joe Gibilterra purchased this estate in 2005

Why Joe Gibilterra chose Parowan

This property offers the vacationer a true getaway from the city. The main reason I purchased this property besides its beautiful log construction was to be centrally located in Southern Utah to take advantages of its surroundings, while at the same time having the comfort of knowing I can relax in quiet with the beauty of nature.

What makes this estate unique

This home is built to the highest standards and has all the amenities to entertain large groups. It offers 7 bedrooms and 4 full baths . The kitchen is large and has all commercial appliances to feed an army. It is nestled on 50 acres so there is no worry that someone may be bothered by large group activities. It is also great for the couple that just wants to get away and enjoy the beautiful outdoors.

Great big space for a big family/friends gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our group loves the big space this property offers, especially the kitchen and family room. I especially love the placements and walls/floor structure where none of us could hear any noises from other rooms when bedtime comes. It’s also in a perfect location for us where we only had to drive a very short distance up to Brian Head for skiing/snowboarding. Highly recommended!!!

This is a beautiful place in a gorgeous setting.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday here. The place is large and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful. Sitting on the front porch and watching the sun set against the red cliff mountains was a relaxing treat. Plenty of things to do. We spent two days skiing with our children in Brian Head only 20 min away. We went Ice skating in Cedar City. Hope to do it again soon. Thank you Joe and Rachel.

Great family gathering house!

  • 5 of 5

The house provided a great place for our large family to gather and play in Parowan together. Rachel is a great property manager; her introduction to the house and responsiveness to our requests were wonderful. The yard was very fun for the children as was the play room down stairs--even had play clothes! The rooms in the house are situated to give families their privacy. FUN PLACE!

Beautiful property for large group

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our spring break trip to Brian Head. It worked out perfectly for our group of 3 families. We chose to stay in Parowan to avoid the high elevation, and it was an easy 20 minute drive to the slopes. The house was great at this time of year because even though it snowed in Parowan, it was too warm to 'stick' so the kids got to play outside all evening after skiing. Huge lot with tons of room to play outside. No issues with the laundry, theatre room, or plumbing as mentioned in a prior review. In fact, I wish I had a similar laundry room at home! Property manager was very helpful and responsive. Great rental!
