13 Moab Airbnbs That Will Make You Want to Quit Your Job and Move to the Desert

Jenna Becker

Posted on

Wedged between two of Utah’s most beautiful national parks, Moab is the unofficial adventure capital of the US Southwest. Gateway to both Arches and Canyonlands National Parks, it’s surrounded by some of the world’s most impressive red rock formations, and attracts mountain bikers, off-roaders, base jumpers, climbers, rafters, and other adrenaline seekers from all over the world. At the same time, Moab’s wide open spaces make the area equally popular amongst hikers, photographers, stargazers and family vacationers.

Despite its acclaim, Moab has managed to maintain its friendly small town in the desert vibe, and there’s no better place to “live like a local” for a few days (or weeks). There are tons of Moab airbnbs to choose from, and we’ve narrowed down the list to 13 of the very best. If you’re visiting as part of a larger national parks vacation, Moab makes for an epic addition to a Southwest National Parks Road Trip.
