The month of May brings with it warmer temperatures and some changes to the vacation rental situation at the condo in Moab. We reported last week that there was a requirement for a break of 72 hours between the departure of one guest and the arrival of the next. However, that was amended a few days ago and now there is a 24 hour waiting time between departure and arrival.
The three-day waiting time was going to make it very difficult for renters, property managers, cleaning crews and property owners to coordinate the schedule. Having to manually block time before and after each booking for a period of 72 hours was going to be cumbersome.
It’s of utmost importance that the cleaning crews do a great job when turning properties around. One of the reasons that I like working with Makenna’s Gold Rentals is because the cleaning crews are consistently very good. Every now and then someone’s going to miss something but if you contact the property management office they are very responsive and will make sure things are taking care of to your satisfaction.
Still no word as to when Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park will be opening. The latest rumor is sometime in late May. If I had to guess I would say it would be after Memorial Day so they don’t get overrun with visitors.,
If you are thinking of staying at the condo in Moab and would like to book the condo there is still some availability for May and June. Please make sure that your start date is 1 full day after the departure date of the previous guest.
The days are getting longer and the weather is definitely warming up. We had our first 90° days last week. It won’t be that hot this week but it’s important to remember to bring lots of drinking water even when going out for a short walk. While there is still water in some of the creeks you cannot rely on water sources in the backcountry. We want everyone who stays at the condo in Moab to come back safe from their daily explorations.
