About the property

Quaint house with farm like feel tucked down a quiet dirt lane. Walk to town!

Welcome to Desert Blue

Our newly remodeled home is in the heart of Moab but feels a world away. The house is situated down a dirt lane which turns into a private road with very little traffic. It is quiet and peaceful with a truly rural feel. Our location is ideal! It is easy walking distance to main street; the recreation center with pool and fitness center; paved bike path and many other conveniences of town.

Our remodeled home feels brand new and is clean and fresh. We have custom cabinets, granite counter tops, beautiful hard wood floor through out and new kitchen appliances. We have three bedrooms and two bathrooms, each with walk in showers. The large bedroom has a king size memory foam bed and its own sitting area. The second bedroom has a queen bed with its own full bathroom. The third bedroom has two twin beds. The furnishings are uniquely rustic and eclectic with a luxurious at home feel.

Enjoy sitting or eating on the back patio in the large newly landscaped yard. We have a BBQ grill on the patio and also other seating areas around the property for you to relax and enjoy the surrounding red rock views. This lot is very private!

Going to town? No need to deal with parking when visiting main street. We have plenty of parking.

This is a great place to unwind after all your Moab adventures. .... come, put up your feet and enjoy!

About Andrea Shotwell

We live in Northern Utah and first arrived in Moab 25 years ago. It has been a very special place for us ever since. We purchased property near by about 14 years ago and you can often find us climbing, hiking and exploring here in spring and fall when we aren't working. We purchased this property in June 2014 and have spent the summer working on it with friends and a few awesome hard working locals. We hope you can enjoy the area as much as we do.

Perfect house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely perfect. So many nice touches and things left for the convenience of guests (reusable grocery bags, coolers, ice packs in freezer for coolers). Can't wait for our next trip!

Loved the back yard!

  • 5 of 5

Our three nights at this very nice house within walking distance to town were great! Roomy, comfortable (it was 100 degrees+ in Moab during our stay. The central AC worked well) and very tastefully decorated. The backyard covered patio with comfy furniture and gorgeous landscaping surrounding the whole house impressed us the most. Great place to sit for morning coffee or in the evening after dinner. Really loved the layout of the whole house. It was ideal for us - two couples - because the bedroom suites are at opposite ends and offer a bit of privacy. Separated by Roomy, open kitchen, dining and living room space in the middle. Great location - easy walk to Main Street shops and dining.

Good location, beautiful clean house.

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the house. It was very well located and had all that we needed. A lot of extra towels, shampoo, soap, etc...and it was extra clean. I would really recommend this house to anyone staying in Moab.

Great House, Great Town

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Moab, and this house was just perfect. It's beautiful inside and out and is equipped with everything you need to have a memorable stay. Andrea makes everything so easy and seamless--you will feel right at home here. It's just a short, pleasant walk to town where you will find great food, shopping and adventure opportunities. We started every morning on the back patio sipping coffee watching the hummingbirds buzz around the gorgeous back yard, as the sun came up over the mountains. We even saw deer strolling down the lane in the front of the house in the evenings. The house is a very short drive to Arches National Park and Canyonlands is close as well. It was a perfect fit for our family of 4, including two teenagers. We have stayed at many vacation homes over the years, and this is at the top of the list. Check out Moab and stay in this beautiful home--I can't recommend it highly enough.
