About Moab Property Management
This story is really about the vision and hard work of the 3 owners, Joseph, Lisa and Dave. We all went to the U of U and ran around in the desert of S. Utah in the 70's, 80's, up to the present. We stumbled into Castle Valley sometime back then in the 80's. We all loved hiking, backpacking, river rafting, and just adventuring in S. Utah. Now a days, we just like going for day hikes and sitting out on the flag-stone patio - which we also built.
Moab Property Management purchased this House in 1991
Why Moab Property Management chose Castle Valley
Land in CV was pretty cheap back in the late 80's and early 90's. We were young and filled with enough crazy enthusiasm not only for the desert but for the possibility of actually co-owning, designing and building a special place in the desert. We bought the land in the early 90's and then proceeded to design and build our Red Rock Escape. It took us over 7 years, but we pulled it off. We had the incredible help of Warren Egbert, designer, builder, rock climber, cowboy extraordinaire.
What makes this House unique
It's a bit hard to describe the magic of the Red Rock Oasis. It's not at all High Brow, but it is amazingly comfortable. Beyond comfort, it is dramatic in its vistas, its stillness, and in its quiet peace. The house just has a feeling of ease and grand at the same time. The house feels like it's inside of a National Park. Arches is 35 mins. The Island in the Sky an hour. The Needles District of Canyonlands a couple hours. Rafting on the Colorado is very close. Mountain Biking if your young enough to do that kind of thing is all within a day trip.

One of the most memorable vacations ever. Moab and Castle Valley are beautiful with lots to do, but coming home to the Red Rock Oasis each night is what we remember most fondly. The views are incredible, it was quiet and relaxing, and the home was very comfortable. The living/dining area is set up perfectly for having a great dinner at home and enjoying Castle Valley as it's meant to be experienced. I highly recommend this rental. Joseph was the perfect host, checking in with us as needed. Thank you very much!
Red Rock Oasis Experience
Staying at your lovely home was more than having a lovely comfortable place to stay - it was an experience. Watching lightning bolts striking among the cliffs, a snowstorm blowing through the valley, the full moon softly lighting up the valley vista, gazing at the endless stars on a dark night, or enjoying morning coffee on the sun kissed patio while being serenaded by returning migrant birds - all amidst a stunning panorama and serene quiet! We appreciate your generosity in allowing us to have these precious experiences by sharing your house with us - perfect,strangers! The house itself is unique in that it's design reflects the surrounding cliffs - it gives a sense of spaciousness while maintaining cozy comfort. The abundance of Windows - sometimes in unexpected places- lends a feeling of being outdoors ( even in the shower!). The magic of the changing light on the canyon walls reflects beautifully within.... All the comforts of a well loved home are available, so after being out enjoying some of the area's natural wonders, the enjoyment continues upon returning to the Red Rock Casa.... a good meal, a Moab brew, and one of the most peaceful places on earth.....
In closing, we want to thank Joseph for all his kind attention in helping make this experience happen for us. We look forward to returning ....
We are touched by how beautifually you capture the magic of the Red Rock Casa and its amazing setting. We look forward to having you back next March. Joseph
Beautiful setting and space
We spent 6 weeks at Red Rock Casa in Castle Valley in October-November 2017. The house was superbly located at the top of a hill, affording a sense of privacy, solitude and quiet and moreover, spectacular views of the valley and red rock formations. The array of windows facing the valley provided wonderful natural light inside the home in addition to the views. As temperatures cooled in November, the radiant heating in the floor was divine! The house had a feeling of spaciousness with high ceilings in the great room and was well laid out and equipped. Its location enabled easy access to national parks and many other trails in the region. As advertised, there was spotty cell service at the house, and in addition, Internet access was intermittent. The owner, Joseph Losi, was responsive and attentive, available whenever we had questions, and ensured that our stay was a very special one. I highly recommend this property!
Martha, We loved hosting you and your crew. We look forward to having you back.
Home Away From Home
We didn't want to leave. Our whole visit, out on excursions in the Moab area or enjoying the national parks, we'd come to a point in the day when we'd look at each other and say "let's head home." And by home, we meant this oasis on the hill, Red Rock Casa. It’s a perfect base for exploring Moab and the National Parks, but you might not want to leave the house! We felt relaxed and eager to wind down and read or just stare at the stars.
The ever-changing views of Castle Valley and Castle Rock are almost startling. Powerful and magnificent. You'll take too many pictures of the same view, but it's new with every shift of the light. It's quiet and calming, and you'll enjoy the birdsong and sounds of rustling critters.
The layout of the house is open and the breeze moved easily even on the hottest days. (We only ran the swamp cooler a couple times and yet temps were in the 100s.) The kitchen is perfectly arranged and organized and we love to cook, so we barely ate out at all. For folks who drink coffee, there's a coffee press and an automatic drip machine. The water from the tap is drinkable and great for cooking/cleaning (Conserve!) but if you like a bottled source, buy the 2-1/2 gallon containers from City Market in Moab and drink it cold from the frig. The gas stove is a workhorse and a pleasure to cook on, and the gas grill outside gave us lots of options for dining at home. Kitchen is stocked. Great knives and a sharpener, to boot! If I'm being picky, a new can-opener would be nice and some OXO tongs.
Some ideas: Check out Lotus Massage. Lisa came out to Castle Valley and we both got massages right here. Nice birthday present!
Check out the handy Falcon Guide for day hikes on the coffee table. So many hiking trails, but don’t miss:
#1 Fiery Furnace at Arches. Reserve a Ranger-guided hike.
#2 Fisher Towers (just up the road off of 128)
#3 Granstaff Canyon -- formerly Negro Bill Canyon -- a beauty of a hike.
#4 Delicate Arch. Packed with tourist/hikers but worth it, nonetheless. Park hours were limited (7-7) while we were there (construction!) so no sunset/sunrise hikes in Arches until November at least. Oh, and brave the La Sal Loop mountain road if you can (more construction). It’s a beautiful and cooling scenic drive. Watch out for the cows in the road!
The drive to Moab is stunning. Grab a burger and shake at Milts and you can't go wrong at Quesadilla Mobilla…just steps away from Back of Beyond Books!
Hope to return. Thanks Joseph!!
"We did not want to leave!" While Stephen went on to give a significant amount of praise and very useful information about the Red Rock Casa, he could have stopped there. Our home in Castle Valley just wraps itself around our guests and does not want them to leave. The only way to truly know that feeling is to experience it. The RR Casa, and it's environs are magical. You'll feel it! Joseph, Lisa & Dave, aka, "the owners."
The property is in tip top shape with everything you could ever need in the kitchen. The view out the front window is breathtaking and it is quiet, quiet, quiet. We hiked at Arches, Canyonlands, and Fisher Towers--all within easy reach. This is a fantastically peaceful way to vacation and I'll be back
What can we say?!....The Red Rock Casa has this type of effect upon most who stay there. A one of kind...magical...almost spiritual place.
Spectatular Views and Easy Living
My wife and I were constantly reminded of the wonderful views from the house throughout each and every day. The setting would work very well with those who want to relax and just chill for the day, but for us it worked as a great hub for adventurous outings. A day didn't go by, when we didn't hike, bike, or take a scenic ride. Close to Castle Valley is a plethora of hiking, biking, and even horse trails. The ride into Moab is flat-out majestic and we were always looking for an excuse to head out. The house really offers everything a person could want. It's a perfect getaway!
Loved hosting you! So happy you had such a great time! Hope you can make it back.
If you like solitude and the desert SW our home lies in a stunning location that is vast, quiet and filled with panoramic awe.
