Overview

Utah Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Center Street Condo is a luxurious place to spend your vacation. It features a gourmet kitchen, a beautiful travertine bath with a huge shower and two sinks, and a king sized bed in the roomy master bedroom (three closets!). There's plenty of room to spread out and WIFI for your convenience. The large living room features a 42' flat screen TV with cable and a super comfy queen sized pull out sofa with a Tempurpedic mattress. The kitchen will be a dream come true to any cook, with two ovens, stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and lots of space to work. The delightfully landscaped private yard and patio area are wonderful for lounging in the evening. A large BBQ grill is available for outdoor cooking just steps from the back door. Plenty of off street parking and a secure bike storage area, too. Whether you want to visit the parks, participate in action sports, relax, or get some work done in a wonderful environment, this is a one-of-a kind property that’s perfect for your Moab vacation.

Take advantage of this opportunity to enjoy Moab to its fullest. Spend your day in the parks and when you're done park your car and bike or walk to shopping, dining, historic Star Hall, basketball courts, Moab's great library (voted best small town library in America), Dan O'Laurie Museum of Moab, art galleries, Municipal and County offices, Moab Swim Center, and Mill Creek bike path.

The Center Street Condo is the perfect base camp for exploring Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, Dead Horse Point State Park, Monument Valley, Mesa Verde, Natural Bridges National Monument and many other beautiful attractions of southeastern Utah. Winter is great time to visit these national treasures, red rocks are spectacular with a dusting of snow! The nearby Manti-LaSal Mountains offer summertime mountain biking and hiking as well as cross country skiing on set tracks and backcountry powder runs in the winter. Check out Moab's new 18 hole Frisbee golf course too! Little kids can learn to pedal on the paved Mill Creek Parkway and bigger folks can head up the nearby Sand Flats Road to the world famous Slickrock Bike Trail. Everything is close at hand from this location one block from Center and Main Street downtown. Kid Friendly: Safe and secure gated yard/garden area right out the back door for play.

Need more space? Check out the attached Center Street Suites, HA#479166 and HA#479168, and the Off Center Condo upstairs, HA#149341.

About Kel Darnell

Hi,

Here is a picture of the owners, Kim and Eddie, doing one of the things they love best, hanging out on the slickrock. Kim is the Executive Director of the Moab Trails Alliance and spends her time writing grants to fund more non-motorized trails in the Moab area. Check out the bike/pedestrian bridge across the Colorado River and the paved path system that links downtown Moab to Arches and Canyonlands National Parks as well as many popular BLM sites. Eddie is an Orthopedic Surgeon from Salt Lake City where he specialized in shoulders for 25 years. Now he practices full time at the new Moab Regional Hospital (2010). He and Kim met on a blind date and the rest is history.

If you have suggestions to make this condo even better for your next stay, let us know. We want you to be happy and enjoy Moab!

We hope you love our condo as much as we do,

Kimberly Schappert and Eddie Weeks

Why Kel Darnell chose Utah

While living in Moab since 1987 I have watched and helped this community change immensely. Besides Moab Trails Alliance, my other business is a walk-in camppark for tents only, Up the Creek Campground. There is no other campground like it in town. 132 E Center is a unique property that was remodeled from a derelict building two blocks from Main Street. It houses 2 hotel style suites with outdoor patio seating on the the front side of the building and two deluxe and distinctly different condo properties in the back, complete with a fantastic private oasis garden. This is where I would want to stay if I didn't already live here! P.S. Eddie agrees completely!

What makes this condo unique

We are locals but we did stay in this lovely condo after we bought it to see if it was as perfect as we thought. Yes! There is no need for a car once you arrive. Everything in town is within walking or biking distance. The backyard, right out the back door, is private and perfect for after activity cocktail hour and grilling. The beds are super comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need to whip up a feast. Hate to cook? No problem. Walk downtown and find your favorite restaurant. There are plenty to choose from, anything from sushi at Sabaku (Yes it is good!) to other fine dining at the Desert Bistro. The galleries are loaded with wonderful local artist's work, some of them internationally known, like Tom Till's photography or Serena Supplee's canyon scenes. The music festivals, classical or folk, are first class as well as any theatre event put on by the very talented local pool of actors. Be sure to read the Moab Happenings for the month you will be visiting

Guestbook comments from the manager

Of the many 1-2 bedroom vacation rentals we've had over the years, this condo is by far the most thoughtfully designed, thoroughly equippped, stylish, and spacious. It's also immaculate. The location within the town and the Moab area generally is unbeatable. Kel Darnell, the property manager, was generous in answering my many q.s and giving detailed advice as I was planning our Utah hiking holiday. Five stars all around!

Peaceful setting, easy walk to shops, grocery, and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 1 week on a mountain bike vacation. It was perfect! Bike storage was secure. Courtyard with parking was peaceful and quiet during our stay. We sat outside every afternoon to enjoy the landscaping and gorgeous May weather. We walked or rode our bikes for groceries, Moab cyclery, and restaurants. The location of this VRBO is just 2 blocks off the Main Street through town. So few cars use the street in front of this unit but it's only 2 blocks from the shops. The mill creek path is 2 blocks away and is perfect for walking or riding a bike. We cooked many meals in the kitchen. Kitchen had everything we needed. Loved having a washer/dryer. The bathroom is roomy. The bedroom furnishings were nice and the space was quiet. This place had plenty of room to spread out for the two of us. Can't say enough good things about our trip including this VRBO. I had a couple questions just after arriving and Kel answered right away and was so nice. We will definitely return to Moab for a repeat of this trip!

Oasis in Town

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed at the condo for two nights, and wished it could be a longer visit. We were a block away from main street without the noise. It was a beautiful place to stay and make ourselves comfortable.

Fantastic Central Moab Location

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a one week stay in this wonderful Condo. We've been to Moab several times for the annual Jeep Safari but had always stayed in hotels which tend to be noisy and crowded.

We are so glad that we decided to stay in this condo! It is within walking distance to most of the restaurants and shops in downtown Moab, is well furnished and modern, it has a washer and dryer which are much needed after long (dusty) days on the trail, and best of all, it's quiet! The kitchen is well equipped for all your cooking needs and the backyard is private and a great place for a post-trail happy hour. Additionally, the Jeep (or bikes, etc), are secure in the spacious rear parking area.

We had a fabulous time and look forward to staying here again!
