If you’re looking for a resort near all the main happenings in Moab that also allows for a good night’s sleep, Casa Moab offers the best of both worlds — it’s located on a peaceful, unassuming street that’s only a stone’s throw from the bustle of Main Street!

Locations of interest in the vicinity include Slickrock Cinemas, the Moab Brewery, and Chile Pepper bike shop, as well as plenty of restaurants and shops for all your basic needs.

Casita #4 (there are 5 on the grounds, but #4 has the best decor in my opinion!) is located on the ground floor of Casa Moab, and it comes equipped with a state-of-the-art kitchen, smart TV with WiFi and cable, a spacious living area, and a cozy, luxurious bedroom.

However, the outdoor facilities are where Casa Moab really shines – between the outdoor sauna, large private deck, and fire pit table, Casa Moab makes for a great place to gather all your family and friends for an afternoon of fun and a delicious outdoor meal.

If, on the other hand, you’d prefer to have a peaceful evening to yourself, Casita #3 has you covered there, too – you can take full advantage of the elegant bathroom and its walk-in shower, and use all the hot water you want!

Moab Digs has everything one would ever need – its open floor design combines its kitchen, living room, and dining room into one cohesive unit, and the bedroom comes with a king-size bed and plenty of natural light.

What sets Moab Digs apart from other apartments, however, is its unique, industrial aesthetic. The interior is dominated by shades of gray, with the occasional wooden texture, as well as warm shades of red and blue on some of the furniture and paintings – this combination of colors creates the perfect balance of sleek and simple and gives the apartment a very homey ambient.

On top of having a living room balcony, Moab Digs also has 2 patios. In keeping with the unique look of the interior, the wooden design of the patios is beautifully accented by the surrounding greenery and decorative details.

One of the patios comes equipped with a barbecue grill and is more than spacious enough for larger gatherings, and the other is elevated, providing a great view of the neighborhood.

This stylish apartment is well worth the price of admission, but those who are looking to stay for 3 nights or more get a 30% discount! And frankly, we suggest at least 3 nights in Moab to see everything you want to see, anyway!

Scalatore is a condominium located on the top floor of La Dolce Vita Villas, and it’s a rare example of a rental in a popular tourist area that’s every bit as memorable as the local landmarks, if not more.

Adding to the atmosphere of the bedroom is the ‘headboard’ of the bed – a custom-made, rocky-desert-themed art piece that gets you into the canyoneering spirit first thing in the morning.  

If you still haven’t had enough of the high altitudes come night time, the second bedroom has 3 elevated bunk beds that turn the simple act of getting in and out of bed into an adventure – there’s even the option of sliding out of bed down a fireman pole (kids will love this, just be sure to supervise!)  

Casting the unique concept aside, though, the living and kitchen areas are very cozy and well-furnished, and the second bathroom is a welcome addition, especially if you’re taking full advantage of the space and visiting with a large group.

This cozy little tent in OK RV Park is a great place to book if you want to connect with nature without having to relinquish access to too many commodities.

The tent itself is little more than a place to spend the night after a long day of exploring Moab, and this is reflected in its minimal furnishings – two beds for 2 and some rudimentary seating.

The outdoor area is more in line with what you would expect a rental in this area to have, namely a private patio and a fire pit.

What makes OK RV Park stand out, however, is the community of campers – you can keep to yourself and enjoy your own little corner of the camp, or you can go to the shared patio by the park’s office and get to know some of your fellow outdoorsmen.
