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.

This beautiful straw bale is an oasis in the desert. Simple with gorgeous landscaping, my family of four (two teenage boys) felt like we were on retreat. Just far enough outside of town to escape the hustle and bustle of Moab while being close enough for anything we needed. Our one year old pup felt very at home too. When we weren't hiking or biking we were napping or just enjoying the views. Did all of our cooking here as I couldn't get anyone to leave and go out to eat. Highly recommend this place!

A beautiful home with personality. Not a sterile, rental environment. As another reviewer commented, not all the properties are as lovely, but the way the house is situated, other places are easy to overlook & most of the wonderful views do not include them. A sense of privacy & spaciousness prevails. Wonderful, natural landscaping. Plenty of room for five people & a small dog. The hot tub was the best I've experienced. Lots of jets on the floor to soothe those tired calf & thigh muscles, not just the back & shoulders. A lot of thought & work has gone into the design & furnishings. Truly a lovely place. Have to mention that I was there to distribute some of my husband's ashes in his beloved Canyonlands with family & friends--and the security code was his birthday, 0816. Coincidence? I think not. (Steve & Moe--hope you change the code regularly--and does that date have any significance for you?). Unless you can afford a private estate on 5-10+ acres, you will love the Moab Pearl.

Peaceful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The rental was everything we hoped for. Despite some of the rough looking properties in the rest of the neighborhood, our stay was quiet and the trees at the Pearl make it feel more secluded. The hot tub was well kept and a nice amenity. The kitchen had everything we needed, as we cooked most of our meals. Accessibility to the Hidden Valley trailhead (great hike) and the Pipedream trailhead (cool ride) really made this a great stay. We walked and rode right down the street to these trails. We'll be back.

Beauty Within Beauty

  • 5 of 5

An exquisite home with gorgeous views out every window. Minutes from downtown with extra comfortable beds after long hiking days in Arches and Canyonlands. Kitchen had all we needed. In fact, we roasted a chicken one night and found two meat thermometers to choose from. We are already planning our next trip to see more of the extraordinary gorgeousness of Utah while enjoying the beauty and comfort of the Moab Pearl.

Owner's Response: We would love to have you back, and we are happy to know that your chicken was properly cooked. . . . That can really ruin a vacation! Hopefully you got to enjoy the view at night too, the sky's are stunning! Moe

House was absolutely wonderful, can't say as much for neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

Everything in house was above expectations, location is very convenient to parks, restaurants, downtown. Only downside is drive through neighborhood, not exactly what we were hoping for.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. Our driveway private and is really not part of any neighborhood. Unfortunately, we wee the ones who were coming and going to the workshop doing some Spring work like refilling the propane, replenishing supplies, setting out the bike repair station, etc. We typically aren't doing that when we have guests staying at the Pearl but it was our only opportunity given our busy schedules and Park City! We hope you'll be back and will be sure not to do this annual maintenance while you're there! Moe

The Moab Pearl is one of the best rentals we have encountered!

  • 5 of 5

The home is functional and every detail carefully thought out. The decor is eco friendly and beautiful. We loved the spacious kitchen - eating area and great room concept. The bedrooms have terrific mattresses and gorgeous views. The landscaping totes a bike rack and repair stand. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home and spirit of Moab. We sure hope to return in years to come.
