Reservations are looking good for the condo in Moab in 2019. April and may have only a handful of dates available. But March and June are only about 50% reserved so there are still some openings at this time. There is a perpetual shortage of lodging in Moab. As a result, it behooves visitors to make reservations as far in advance as possible.
What if the condo in Moab is reserved for your preferred dates? My property manager has several other units in the same complex that are vacation rentals. Makenna’s maintains very high standards for all of their properties. Over the years guests have generally been quite satisfied with the accommodations at Rim Village Vistas.
One of the nice things about the location of the condo in Moab is that it provides easy access to Hwy 191. In about 5 minutes you can get to the center of town where you’ll find all of the shops and restaurants. If you turn south on Highway 191 it will take you towards the Needles section of Canyonlands National Park. This southern part of the park gets fewer visitors and offers dramatic scenery of eroded rocky spires and red rock canyons.
If you are approaching the condo in Moab from the South along Highway 191 you will likely pass through the quaint little town of Blanding. They have a great visitor center! I highly recommend that you stop by to check out the informative displays.
One of the most spectacular places to visit in southeastern Utah is Monument Valley. It takes about 2.5 hours to drive from the condo in Moab down to this stunning part of Navajo Nation. Many visitors just do the 17 mile drive through the monuments on a bumpy and dusty dirt road. However, there is one hiking trail a little bit over 3 miles in length that you can do on your own. All other hikes or any travel off the 17 mile drive will require you to get a local Navajo guide.
If you are looking for accommodations near Monument Valley I recommend Goulding’s Lodge. The staff is very friendly and a lot of the rooms have great views. It’s a straight drive for approximately 4 miles to get to from the hotel to the entrance kiosk. Another option inside Monument Valley is the View Hotel. It’s a bit pricey but the views will knock your socks off especially at sunset.
