Updated, dog-friendly home for groups w/ private patio plus fenced yard

Get ready to experience Moab, the Adventure Capital of the United States at this sprawling and luxurious home large enough for a multi-family reunion or big holiday gathering, including the family dogs.

Located only nine miles southeast of downtown Moab, this six-bedroom, two-story oasis is close to a number of sensational outdoor destinations including Ken's Lake, a reservoir offering hiking, biking, and horseback trails, as well as lakeside picnicking and fishing. Or book a rafting trip through Red River Adventures located downtown, and head out on the winding and rushing Colorado River!

This comfortable, colorful, and contemporary home has bright open spaces and dramatic views of the La Sal Mountains and the Moab Rim.

The first-floor great room has a living area with a plush leather sofa and two cozy armchairs. Behind this area, there's a dining room table with six chairs, ideal for gathering around to plan your days, play a few board games, or enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal.

The gleaming, U-shaped kitchen with island features plenty of prep space with polished granite countertops, a variety of essential accessories, utensils, and cookware, and stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher to help you keep things tidy. Boost your menu thanks to the gas barbecue grill out on the private, well-appointed back deck with table and chairs overlooking the fenced-in yard with a playset and swings.

Downstairs, there's a large, open family room with a sofa, love seat, and several other seating options as well as a rec/exercise room. Together, these two areas are ideal for the kids to call their own during your stay, especially while you're experiencing one of those spectacular summer rainstorms or during the cooler winter months when a little snow is possible.

Also, a couple well-behaved dogs are welcome to join you during your stay for a daily fee.

While the lure of the mountains, the surrounding desert, and the Colorado River will likely have you out seeing the sights, there are plenty of home entertainment options available in this rental including complimentary WiFi, multiple flatscreen TVs with Blu-ray/DVD players, a selection of books, and a playset with swings in the large, fenced backyard. And feel free to leave those bulky suitcases home thanks to the private laundry room with high-capacity washer and dryer.

This home is located right at the edge of the desert where you'll find hiking and running trails close by that give access to Mill Creek Canyon and Ken's Lake. Hit the road and take a scenic drive up to Arches National Park where you'll find 13 hiking trails, most of which are easy enough for all ages, that will take you throughout the area to view over 2,000 natural sandstone arches, including the world-famous Delicate Arch! Or just enjoy the day in nearby Moab for its many galleries, Southwestern jewelry and art shops, and excellent restaurants. Guests of this home will also receive a 20% discount off of golfing fees at the Moab Golf Club, so don't forget to pack your clubs!

Get ready to experience all that the Adventure Capital of the United States has to offer for you and several guests at this spacious and luxurious desert home!

Big fenced yard, nice patio and bbq.
Quela L. Nov 2018
We had a wonderful stay here! There were plenty of rooms for our big family and lots of space for the kids to play and roam. The added bunk bed space was ideal.
Dean M. Oct 2018
We visit Moab every year with a group of 12 or more. This house easily accommodated all of us and had a great view. It was a bit far from town, especially from where we normally stay. Over all great experience with the exception of the mean old lady down the street.
Chela C. Jul 2018
With plenty of sleeping configurations and lots of nooks and crannies for long games of hide-and-seek, this house as a big win! We had family aged 11 months to 67 years and everyone had a fantastic experience.
We watched bunnies hop through the yard, thunderstorms roll in from the back deck, and cooked huge dinners in the spacious kitchen.
Be sure to wear your shoes on the deck as some boards give splinters.

The home was great, you can sleep an army.
DAVE L. Jul 2018
The house is situated in a nice area which felt very private, and had wonderful views of the Moab Rim. The master bedroom ha a very large soaking tub which was nice. If you have small kids there is a wonderful little play kitchen inside and a kids play area outside which has a sandbox, swing, climbing area with tiny treehouse, etc. Six bedrooms and many beds and many beds provide for a large group, and the one sleeping area has three sets of bunkbeds and is great for kids.
Michael E. Jun 2018
Large, roomy, had everything we needed. Great place for large groups. Enjoyed games in the backyard. Quiet neighborhood. Close to activities. Washer and dryer use was nice to have.
Fran B. Jun 2018
Home had many nice amenities. Comfortable beds, good appliances, etc. Carpet and ceiling fans could use cleaning.
Sarah G. May 2018
The sleeping and parking area,s worked well.
William J. Apr 2018
This house is exactly as advertised. Great Vistas! Easy access to town, comfortable and convenient.
Leslie V. Mar 2018
The property was very clean and very accommodating we came with our son and his 8 children and the two of us. The younger children loved the backyard would definitely recommend this property
David T. Nov 2017
Location is a bit out of town, but close to many riding trails. Lots of beds, made for a good place to stay for a large group.
Kim F. Oct 2017
Great options for kids
Jennifer P. Oct 2017
Nice to have a big place to gather. Close to Moab and far enough away to feel secluded.
Deborah P. Oct 2017
A group of 10 adults enjoyed the Home. Location is out of town but good for local exploring. Rooms were spacious and comfortable, however seating was very limited. Only 6 chairs at the dining table. Would need a few more folding chairs even to accommodate 10.
Cynthia G. Oct 2017
This is a great home for children! There is a large fenced yard with a super swing set and play house. There is also a small play kitchen in the lower level. Three bedrooms upstairs have a king and two queens. The king bed was awful as the slats kept falling out and the memory foam mattress was very low on both sides and high in the middle. The downstairs has three bedrooms, all with twin beds. One room has three sets of bunk beds (which 6 little boys loved), however there wasn't a door to that room. That was an issue for others sleeping downstairs as all the rooms are right next to each other. There were plenty of clean linens and towels. The kitchen was quite well stocked with dishes and pans but it sure could use more drinking glasses and also a griddle. There is also an extra fridge in the garage. The location is unique but only about 12 minutes from the heart of Moab. This is a good choice for a house for large groups with children! We did have an awesome time.

The house is located 4 miles from Moab, in remote development with nothing around. The surroundings look rather depressed with only few nice looking houses- this being one of them. Mountain views are obstructed by lesser properties around include what looks like an small warehouse/ large garage adjunct to right side of the property. There is an old deck out back with old table and some chairs. Inside there are 3 bedrooms on first floor- one king with bath, and two quinn's with shared bath in the hall- all rest of the beds (advertising claims property can slip 25...) are at the lower level and double and mostly bunk. The furnishing, carpets, appliances are not a first quality which you could expect when paying $473.60 per night + $593 in various fees..... (5 nights stay). This property is only okay if you are large group (7+) and don't mind driving 10-15 min to town...
Adam S. Oct 2017
We had a group of 15-18 in this home for a week, and it was great. We would definitely rent again. While you could fit 25, it would be awfully cozy. The house is minutes from downtown Moab, so don't worry about being outside of town. It wasn't a problem at all for us. Beautiful views of the mountains and bluffs from the home.

The neighbor across the street has two dogs that they leave outside all the time, and they will help you get an early start to each day by beginning to bark around sunrise.
Alyssa H. Oct 2017
Stay at this place as a last resort.
Linda T. Aug 2017
enjoyed our stay there had 20 people and everyone had plenty of space, everything was great.
Jay M. Aug 2017
Space to spread out is not a problem with this rental! There is lots of room for large groups including play space for kids. Overall we were happy with the rental but a bunch of small things kept it from being a great experience. The property needs quite a few matainance items to be addressed mainly with the kitchen appliances. The local property manager was as heplful as possible but the items weren't things that could be fixed immediately. The backyard wasn't accessible except from the basement walkout which meant you always had to go through the house to get to it, which was very inconvenient. The outside deck has a number of loose boards that should be replaced to prevent them breaking or from someone tripping. The house is showing some overall wear which is to be expected for a rental property but the upkeep matainance seems to be very minimal. If we had a large group and couldn't find any other accommodations we would rent again but only as a last resort.
Manager response:
The stove has been repaired and work has begun on the deck. Thanks!
Lorenzo M. Aug 2017
Realy nice experience, our group was 20+ people we fit perfectly , definely we whant to came back A+A+
Janae J. Jun 2017
We stayed at Desert View for a family reunion. The house was large enough for all of us. The cousins loved playing on the backyard play set. It was nice to be all together in the same place. The kitchen was large enough so multiple cooks could be there without getting in each other's way.
Bobbie S. Jun 2017
Desert View is a nice house with a good view. There was plenty of space for all of us (15 adults and children). A few minor housekeeping issues but nothing major.
John S. May 2017
Had a wonderful stay with a large group, I would definitely stay here again!
Steven R. Apr 2017
House & setting is wonderful. We didn't spend much time at house because we were there to sit around house. To much to see around the area.
Heather W. Apr 2017
The beds were comfy, the house spacious and clean! We loved the downstairs for the kids and the great backyard. Kitchen pots and pans are getting a little old and may need replacing soon.
Overall a perfect house for our family reunion!
Jamie H. Mar 2017
We were thrilled to find a place that would accommodate our large family so we could all stay together during our family reunion. The back yard was great for the kids to play in during the times we were at the house. The house had a nice home-y feel to it and fit our family perfectly. Loved staying there!
Kent D. Mar 2017
Our family enjoyed our time in Moab and the house allowed us all to be together.
Adam S. Mar 2017
We had 4 couples and a few kids stay over Presidents' Day. There was plenty of room and plenty to do. The house had all the options we needed and was nothing more than ~10 min outside of downtown Moab. Thanks for a great place to stay!
Katie B. Jan 2017
Several bedrooms for couples and even more bedding for kids. Pleasant stay.
Tara W. Dec 2016
The house was great for a large group. We had about 19 people and 1 dog. The only complaint from the group was that it would have been nice to have 1 more bathroom. With that many people 3 bathrooms can fill up fast. The yard was fully fenced and worked great for the dog. If you have a large trailer parking could be a little tricky. The house was clean and well maintained.
Anne L. Nov 2016
If the place is cleaned well, it would be an ideal fit for a family gathering.
Nathan W. Nov 2016
We had a total of 20 people including small preschoolers. Plently of room and more beds than needed. The key was not under the mat. I called the number listed for help at check in time of 3:00. I never heard back. Fortunately there was a basement window that was open an after 45 minutes of waiting for a call, I went in through the window.
The Barb-Q grill is dated. The tank felt empty and we filled the tank with propane and it still did not work. (probably a regulator)
Overall a great place in a very good location that is quiet.
Manager response:
We are sorry that there appears to have been some confusion with check-in; the lockbox code to access the key and all other entry information are included in an email sent out one week prior to the beginning of each reservation. Thanks!
Paul D. Nov 2016
This house was perfect for our families! It had lots of space, beautiful views, and a great location.
Brian B. Oct 2016
The house was ample and met our needs. We would stay here again.
