About Steve and Moe Briley

We love Utah! Living in Park City and escaping to the desert makes for a wonderful life. We love to share our desert getaway when we aren't enjoying it ourselves!

Steve and Moe Briley purchased this house in 2011

Why Steve and Moe Briley chose Utah

The Moab Pearl filled us instantly with a sense of peace and relaxation even when we found it a mess . . .we felt were always meant to be here, to take care of it, and an obligation to share that experience with others. You won't want to leave and you will plan your next trip back while your there!

What makes this house unique

Mountain biking, trail running. slick rock hiking, river rafting, photography.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Best vacation home you could ask for!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at the Pearl! We love it so much it won't be our last. So comfortable, clean, modern and eco friendly! The strawbale construction keeps it super cool. The hot tub is spacious and powerful for restoring sore hiking muscles! The kitchen is great for cooking large or small gourmet meals. The wifi is fast and cable was great.

Highly recommend giving this place a shot for your Moab vacation.

Comfortable home in a beautiful setting- great for families!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at the Moab Pearl! The house is simple but very cool and indoor-outdoor spaces flow nicely. The loaded kitchen and jacuzzi were definitely a plus. As August guests, we happy to find that our location falls into the shade of the canyon in the afternoon. My son loved sleeping in the loft! Very convenient to Moab and Arches and so many other wonderful sites in the area. Would definitely recommend for families or groups!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Ana, The loft is definitely popular with the youngsters. I'm glad you're able to enjoy the hot tub in August. We like watching the sun go down from that spot. We hope you'll be back! Best, Steve & Moe

As Unique As The Arches Themselves!!!

  • 5 of 5

Steve & Moe certainly have a Pearl here!!! They are excellent hosts and respond quickly to any questions and are wonderfully nice people! The Moab Pearl is in an excellent location for visits to Arches and Canyonlands Nat'l Parks, not to mention the countless trails of the Bureau of Land Management. Downtown Moab is minutes away with plenty of superb restaurants & grocery stores, shops, etc. The house was spotless, comfortable, and simply a unique experience as it is an environmentally conscious structure. Don't miss the books that Steve & Moe have in the house regarding Straw Bale homes! The bedrooms were nice, and the kitchen was awesome! Landscaping is beautiful! I really can't say enough other than book this lovely home and enjoy!!! We hope to be back again!!! Thanks so much Steve & Moe for letting us stay in your wonderful Pearl of Moab!!!

Perfect setting for our trip

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 nights at this property and everything was very nice. Looks like they put a lot of work to get this property to this point. The house was super super stocked with anything you needed. More so than any other place I have ever stayed. Whirlpool could have used a little attention, but all the chemicals were there to bring it back to normal. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Thank you for the nice place and look forward to staying again. Moab is awesome and just about any place or person I have met there has been great. Oh yea, the beds were some of the most comfortable beds too.

Something special, something more

  • 5 of 5

We really don't have words for how lovely and loved this home is. The views are lovely, accomadations so comfortable and the "little things" to numerous to mention (but I will try, you should bring your own first aid kit but they have one, my children are grown, but the baby spoon made me smile, my dogs were at home, but the dog bowls made me happy, the effort to think of the earths needs were all around us, the kitchen was ridiculously well stocked.....). Arches is an easy 15 minute drive, and coming back from a wonderful but tiring long days hike (the towers! No one there!!) was a welcome respite

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words! Glad you had what you need, and yes my TJMaxx "problem" is obvious since you can never get those darn tags off. I am a Family Practice PA and Steve is a Paramedic, hence the first aid kit!

Very lovely home, roomy for a group/family

  • 5 of 5

The home had a great kitchen / dining / living space for our group which included several adult children. Outdoor space and patios were convenient for star gazing and hottubbing. We visited in the heat of summer excess of 100 daytime temps so the swamp cooler was good at keeping main space cool. However would suggest a Box or floor fan for the 2 bedrooms to keep cooler air moving -especially if you shut bedroom door/they stayed warmer than rest of house. Overall this was a great space , close to town but private. Short drive to Arches and not too far from Canyonlands NP
