About Clay Johnsen
I am a 38 year old Podiatrist with a big family and a love for the outdoors. I currently live in Seattle and work as a sports medicine podiatrist. I graduated from College at BYU, and went to Med School in New York, and completed my training for residency in southern California. I come from a big family of 7 kids, 5 boys, 2 girls and we all get along famously. I have been taking a trip to Moab every year for the Last 10 years with my family and best friends and finally decided Moab wasn't just a phase it was something I wanted to be around long term, so I took the plunge
Clay Johnsen purchased this House in 2013
Why Clay Johnsen chose Moab South Valley
When searching various properties in the Moab area with a few of my best friends, when we got to this house, we all said 'I'll do just about anything to get this house' or some version of that. It is a really cool house, with a really open relaxing vibe. I use it for a group of 12 or so of my best friends to hang out at a few times a year, and we can't get enough of it. I loved everything about this property from the moment I saw it. It is located in a residential neighborhood, and there are a lot of families around. For me this was exactly what I was looking for as well. There isn't loud music or crazy parties happening nearby. It's just a chill place to go after you have exhausted yourself in Moab.
What makes this House unique
My favorite thing about this house is probably the big rock outside in the back yard. Going back there and star gazing on a clear night is amazing. Sitting on the rock and looking around at everything in the middle of the day is just as fun. I have to say, even though I am not much of a chef, I love the kitchen. It is open, spacious, and really modern. Everything is as it should be. The kitchen/living room area is huge, and everyone can hang out in there at the same time without feeling cramped one bit. I also love the gas fireplace. All you have to do is flick a switch and it turns on. It is the coolest feeling in the world. I need to get one for my house in Seattle.

Great location, everyone wanted to come hangout with us in the house.
Clay made everything easy. Would stay here every year.
Comfortable home to come back to after adventuring all day!
We really loved our stay at this beautiful home. The layout and amenities were just what we needed after spending all day playing in Moab. Our kids had a blast chasing and catching the tiny lizards around the yard, and the outside patio and fire pit were utilized daily for some quiet relaxation! The neighborhood is nice and quiet with not much road traffic (great for our small kids playing!) and there was more than enough parking available for our truck, Jeep and trailer.
My only complaints (and they are MINOR) would be the cleanliness of the home when we first arrived was not great. The floor had not been swept (lots of chip crumbs in the corners) or mopped (something sticky in the entry way)...but I just did a quick clean and it was as good as new. Also, the towels were all clean, but were just heaped in a pile in the laundry room. Again, not a big deal...but it would have been nice if I didn't have to fold and put away laundry after driving for 16 hours. Finally, the kitchen could use some new pans. They are getting pretty worn out. Otherwise, the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we could possibly need, the beds were very comfortable, and having the full size laundry was awesome. Also.....Clay is a very responsive owner and was really nice to work with.
Clay, we hope you continue to offer your home as a VRBO rental because WE WANT TO COME BACK!
Wonderful home with large open rooms
Recently stayed here and fell in love with the master suite. I was surprised at how comfortable the master bed is, the shower was awesome, the whole thing has a great cozy feel. Loved the open kitchen dining and living room. Back yard fire pit was a great treat in the cooler evening. Clay was great to work with and responsive to questions. Already look forward to staying there again.
Well-appointed, beautiful home!
We stayed in the house for a month and it was fantastic to have a place to come home to, make dinner, and relax after adventuring all day. As a couple, we didn't use many of the amenities like the extra bunk room and cots, but we loved having a full kitchen, great tv system, and full sized washer and dryer. Clay was responsive to emails. Great stay! Thanks!
Beautiful, Comfortable, Awesome!
We had such a great time here! No one wanted to leave. The house was beautiful and had everything we needed. It was a great location for home base. Bedrooms were very luxurious, clean, comfortable. The kitchen was gorgeous and right in the middle of all the activity. Great for the mom preparing dinner! There was plenty of room to stretch out and relax after a full day of hiking, biking, repelling etc. I would highly recommend staying here and would definitely come back. Thanks for making our vacation so great!
Very relaxing stay. I have stayed in many places in Moab, by far this is the place that most feels like home. I would stay again, and recommend it to others.
Moab is a haven for everything outdoors. It is one of the best places in the U.S. for mountain biking, 4x4ing, jeeping, hiking, rock climbing, white water rafting, and sky diving. If you get bored in Moab, you need to check for a pulse.
