Utah House Rental Photos and Description

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

Violet @ StellaRuby Cottages is that correct combination of cool comfort and natural light in a very private and relaxed setting. A wide-open space with queen bed and sofa sleeper that is also twins beds. Violet is ideal as a home base from which to explore the limitless adventure options Moab has to offer.

As with all StellaRuby units, Violet includes high definition television, a DVD player, as well as Direct TV and wireless broadband internet. A basic kitchen--microwave, toaster, coffee maker, refrigerator, two burner hot plate, plates, bowls, and utensils--enables you to fuel up before hitting the trails on foot or knobby tire. Violet also has a washer and dryer. Use the shared outdoor gas grill to fire up a hearty meal after a taxing day. Linger for a bit and you just might make new friends from who knows where.

About The Owner

StellaRuby Cottages came about when three great friends (two of whom are sister and brother) decided to create a comfortable and inviting environment from which adventurous guests can discover everything there is to love about Moab.

The friends that keep StellaRuby moving forward are all avid runners, bikers, and kayakers, but the real focus of their lives is their daughters / nieces / friends.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Utah

Bikes, Dogs, Jeeps, Rafts and Hiking shoes. That pretty much captures what Moab is about and that's what StellaRuby is about as well. We're dog friendly and offer ample space for all your outdoor gear. Come & stay with us.

What makes this house unique

StellaRuby offers three separate Collages clustered around a verdant garden area with shared hot tub, a huge gas grill, and gardens with fresh herbs and fruit trees (in season).

Mature shade trees, abundant parking, and proximity to downtown restaurants make StellaRuby the discerning choice for travelers seeking to avoid the corporate hotel experience.

You Gotta Stay Here :)

  • 5 of 5

I happened upon this wonderful gem when searching for a different place to stay from our visit 2 years prior to Moab and I do believe I hit the jackpot! We booked the entire property with 2 other couples for a week and loved it. It's like having a little hideaway in the middle of town and close to everything. We all had fun together and separately in our own spaces. The hot tub was great as the nights were still very cool and after a long day, well just perfect. Heidi's attention to detail on this property is above par - there was even Neutrogena facial wipes and Organic Shampoo and Conditioner. My husband and I arrived sooner than everyone else and stayed in Violet for one night - beautiful. The rest of our stay was in Scarlet and it felt like home! Everything from the quality of the towels, to the cleanliness of the spaces and the beautiful yard, the parking etc etc - 'you gotta stay here'.

We finally got lucky!

  • 5 of 5

We've tried for several years to book here for the week long event that we come to Moab for & this year we succeeded! Violet was the perfect fit for us. The nice surprise was an eating area & 2nd larger fridge. We also used the smaller fridge with a separate freezer making it possible to keep ice cream. A well thought out item was the motion sensor light at night that came on to make it possible to navigate the stairs. Heidi did show me later another set of lights that one can turn on when you know it'll be dark when you return. We have bad allergies & they put the air conditioner in before our arrival so that was very thoughtful. There are many different living spaces in the yard which makes it ideal with other people staying there. Heidi is very fussy with the cleaning. Loved meeting part of the family while we were there. We hope to get lucky again.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Violet at StellaRuby Cottages. The decor was so cute, everything was tidy and the location was perfect! We loved riding bikes, swinging on the swing, and relaxing on the hammock. I would definitely recommend the cottages to anyone looking to visit Moab.

Stellar Comfort at StellaRuby-Scarlet

  • 5 of 5

Great location, beautiful garden and hot tub. The owners were responsive and flexible to all of our needs. The apartment felt like home away from home with a comfortable sitting area and separate sleeping area and a small but well-appointed kitchen. Well decorated and comfortable. We would certainly return.

Good convenient budget apartment in downtown Moab

  • 4 of 5

We liked the Violet unit at Stella Ruby, with just a few details that kept this from being a 5 pt rating. The good parts are location, patio and grill, price, size of the unit, linens, privacy, really nice bathroom, private laundry, bike storage room, and pretty darn good light given it is a basement apartment. The main downsides are the very scattershot kitchen facilities. One small pot, no strainer, only two bowls, a very slow countertop burner unit, essentially non-functioning freezer within the dorm fridge. With very minimal effort (a few more dishes and pots, a higher quality countertop burner thing, a freezer that can actually maintain ice cream in a solid state) this unit could have a FAR better cooking abilities. We had two days when the weather precluded using the grill and it was a real stretch to make a decent dinner for 2 adults and 2 small kids. The other downside is that the unit above's sound travels quite well through their floor. We were lucky that the people above us were great, but you could not be so lucky and then the sound would be a big problem.

Great location and accommodation

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the Violet cottage for four nights. It had plenty of space for two adults and two dogs, with comfortable, clean furnishings. We appreciated the dog-friendly amenities, such as beds, bowls, poop bags, and treats. The yard was nice for the dogs, but note it's not fully fenced. The kitchenette had everything we needed - mini fridge, microwave, hot plate, pots and pans, dishes, etc. The bathroom has an oversized tub, which was very relaxing! The owners were very helpful when we had a question about the heater, and the baseboard heater worked very well. The only drawback of this unit is that the ceiling is very thin, so you can hear the people upstairs watching TV and walking around as if they are stomping. The location is perfect, just a block off the main drag. We were able to walk to go out to eat, and appreciated all the recommendations the owners provided.

It would be easier if the VRBO list of activities included, 'Driving in some of the most spectacular views in the United States,' because that's why you come to Moab. StellaRuby is your comfortable and convenient home base from which to explore one of the most unique areas in the country. Finding a slot canyon to traverse. Laying on your back under Delicate Arch as the setting sun casts long shadows. Wondering how many years it took the Colorado to carve those amazing canyons. Those seem like unique activities. Yes, StellaRuby gives you access to those.
