About the Property
House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
The Cozy Adobe is located in scenic Castle Valley, a small residential area where all homes are built on 5 acre lots. The house is situated right along a dry arroyo, assuring privacy and a peaceful setting. The views from the home are spectacular and include Porcupine Rim and Castle Tower, a world-famous climbing destination.
The area around Castle Valley is an outdoor paradise with a variety of recreational opportunities. There are several great hiking trails, like those found at Fisher Towers and Negro Bill Canyon. Road bikers love the La Sal loop road, which winds its way right through Castle Valley and up the mountains. Nearby Porcupine Rim trail offers great views and is famous among mountain bikers. Another option is to leave the desert landscape behind and take the loop road up to the La Sal mountains for a cool hike or bike ride along mountain lakes and alpine meadows.
The Colorado river is a five minute drive from the Cozy Adobe and offers multiple water sport activities like rafting, paddle boating, kayaking and swimming. Horseback riding, wine tasting and two excellent riverside restaurants are found nearby. Scenic route 128, which follows the Colorado river through a gorgeous, steep walled canyon, provides easy access to Moab (30 minutes) and the three National Parks in the area.
The Cozy Adobe is a green home with water and energy efficient appliances. Outside solar hot water and solar PV panels (grid-tie) off-set 100% of energy needs. High speed internet and long distance phone (continental US) are included in the rent.
Home amenities include a flat screen TV for watching movies, DVD/VCR, and a top notch stereo system with a plug-in for your Ipod. The bathroom has a shower, full bath and a washing machine. The bedroom features a queen size bed with Serta mattress and hotel quality linens. Aero beds provide room for up to two additional guests. The cozy patio on the side of the house provides seating for four, while the porch in front of the home has a futon to lounge on and an outdoor fire pit. The garage houses a portable gas grill and can be used to safely store bikes and other recreational toys. The attached carport protects your vehicle in the winter and keeps it cool during the summer months.
Savor this home's many wonderful features. Imagine having breakfast on the cozy patio; viewing wildlife from your windows; watching the sun set on red rock formations; having a drink by the wood burning stove; browning marshmallows over the coals in the outside fire pit, or enjoying the vibrant stars of the Milky Way while dozing off on the futon on the front porch.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: My husband and I bought the Cozy Adobe from a friend in 2008. My husband is a biomedical engineer with his own consulting company, and I am a physical therapist. We have a daughter, who shares our love of Castle Valley with its beautiful red rock and gorgeous views. We hope to live in our home ourselves sometime in the future. In the meantime, we like to share it with those with a passion for the outdoors.
Why the Owner Chose Castle Valley, UT, USA:
For years we visited Moab several times each year to camp, bike, boat, hike and visit our friend, who built the Cozy Adobe in 1993. Each time we saw her, we admired her home because of the views, the location and the way it blends in with the landscape. When we had the opportunity to buy it we could not pass it up.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is nestled next to a to a small arroyo, which gives it privacy and a cozy feeling, while maintaining its fantastic view of Castle Tower. We added our own interior touches to make it feel warm, bright and welcoming. To minimize impact on the environment, we installed a solar hot water and solar PV system (grid tie). As a result, we are able to offset 100% of our energy needs, which makes it a great place to stay for those who are interested in living 'green'.
