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.

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.

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.

Exquisite house

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful house, we absolutely loved the space, the look and feel, as well as all the stunning details of tasteful decor. The house is very well appointed with everything we needed. The outside space is also really lovely, with a fire-pit and various areas from which to enjoy the views. I loved waking up in the morning to see the cliffs shining in the morning light through the high bedroom window - very special. Communication was very good throughout. Very much appreciated and would highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Elizabeth. We love that view in the morning, too! If there wasn't so much to do in Moab we might not ever get out of bed! Steve and Moe

Awesome gem!

  • 5 of 5

Delightful and comfortable stay in an ideal location. The house was warm and inviting, we had great use of the hot tub every night, with gorgeous views of the mountains, stars, and moon. Simply divine! Will definitely stay here again when we are back in Moab.

Do not miss hidden valley hike--u can walk from the house and it is a delightful surprise!

An absolutely perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at Moab Pearl with some friends from Canada who had never been to Moab. This house was perfect for us in every way! The huge windows throughout the house brought the beauty of the rocks and gardens into the house. The kitchen was convenient and very well appointed for us, and we are "foodies" and tend to be quite discerning about these things.

The beds were very comfortable after a long day of ATVing. The yard and gardens demanded our attention, though we didn't even get to build a fire in the time! The outdoor hot tub was exactly the plus we were looking for. Loved it!

Our dogs were welcome, which made us feel welcome as a "family". We fell in love with Moab Pearl, and will definitely return!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Brenda! We hope you will be back. My daughter figured out the "mood lighting" in the hot tub so you'll have that to look forward to! Moe

Moab Pearl is a real jewel

  • 4 of 5

We spent 7 nights at the Moab Pearl in late September. The house is a gem: beautiful and interesting architecture (read the story of straw bale houses), lots of windows with nice views, 3 different outdoor spaces to use, comfortable furniture, well equipped kitchen, plenty of storage space, interesting "artsy" touches everywhere, birds and rabbits in the beautifully landscaped yard, gorgeous view of the night sky. The mattress in the master bedroom was the best for my back I have ever tried (what is the brand??).

We only have a few suggestions for improvement.

- Some of the rugs really need to be cleaned,

- A number of light bulbs were burned out,

- The area around the house is a mish-mash, not nearly as attractive as the Pearl. Landscaping to block the buildings and bright lights would help.
