great vacation home south of Moab
Submitted: April 21, 2013
Stayed: April 2013
Stayed here for one week in early April. Selected this vacation home after reading the positive reviews and looking at many other properties. This was one of the few that had 4 bedrooms, and it had a good weekly rate. Also, it was single level, which was important to 2 people in the group with limited mobility. My group liked that it was a few miles south of Moab, but still convenient to town. There are views of red rock cliffs and the La Sal mountains, and of course it's convenient to Arches, Canyonlands, Sand Flats Recreation, and all of the other beautiful redrock landscape. Just 3 miles from Ken’s lake and some trailheads, which made late afternoon hikes convenient. Brilliant starry sky at night, when weather permitted.
The property is pretty much as described in the VRBO listing and the photos are accurate. The home had everything we needed, was very roomy, and comfortable. It's a good home-base for outdoor activities in the region, and it's also nice and comfortable to sit around and read, watch movies at the end of the day. We used the kitchen a lot and it had most of what we needed. There is also a gas grill outside, which we used one evening, but the weather was too blustery to take full advantage of the private yard and nice patios. I stocked the kitchen with plenty of food, snacks, drinks before the rest of the group arrived. It already had spices, condiments, coffee for the Keurig(!!). On-site laundry was convenient. Towels and bedding supplied. I brought my own shampoo and soap but there was some available at the house too. Internet available but not very strong signal. The owner and the property manager were both responsive to questions and were helpful.
The only negative – I felt it could have been a little cleaner. (I almost always think a place could be a little cleaner.) There were dog paw prints on the floor, and handprints, splashes on the fridge door, and they could sweep/mop better around edges and behind doors. However, not enough to creep me out.
Overall, it’s a great vacation home. I would recommend this place to family or small group of friends for their Moab area get-away.
