Owner? Let Us Make Your Vacation
Rental Home A Success

We believe our commitment to guest service sets our homes apart.

So far, the facts have proven us right: our guests tell us they had the time of their life. And as a result of this and of our marketing expertise, our homes consistently sit at the top 2% of their market.

Our founders Scott and Sarah Howard have been renting their own vacation homes since 1997. In 2011, Empty Spaces, VRM was born to expand on their expertise, and today we manage homes in three states: Colorado, Utah, and Arizona.

We focus on a limited number of high-end properties, applying our fine-tuned processes to every step of management. That’s how we maximize results for ourselves and our partners.

We have stayed in Airbnb’s all over the world! We really loved this one. I think it’s well rounded and precisely what anyone needs; whether that is for large groups, couples, romantic, homey, open, cozy, functional etc. it’s a bit off town so perfect for quiet and calm. We did hear neighbors a few times, it was never at night. We slept well, there are many beds to choose from certainly. Laundry room is accessible and convenient to bedrooms. Decorating is lovely and charming. Kitchen is great, and stocked for anything you’d like to cook basically. It is clean and very well kept… NO SHOES! Remember that rule! It’s why we rented… It should be a rule anywhere. The national parks are all within driving distance and often quite dirty. This is an excellent rental and we would stay here over and over. I have rarely felt as such for other locations or home. Thanks

This is a sweet property in a cool little subdivision. Perfect for groups 5-10 people who need a place to stay while enjoying Moab

Outstanding location - hiking, fishing, a short distance from the house and great small town shopping opportunities. Well equipped home, nothing lacking in terms of kitchen items, bathing needs, and hot tub. beautiful vistas from most rooms in the house. Our family enjoyed our stay immensely.

We had a terrific time at the property. Everything was like new! Great amenities and the booster chair and pack-n-play were perfect for my 2 year old.

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. Very clean and spacious. Well stocked with kitchen essentials and then some. Had a good variety of games to play, and for the little kids they had blocks and a little play area under the stairs. Communication was great, didn’t have any issues. Will definitely stay again!

Rented three units. We had a total of 14 people. The three units gave everyone privacy when needed and allowed for easy gatherings and meals together. Everyone in the party loves the places and would rent again! Location is great and the units themselves were awesome! Very clean, spacious and well stocked. We had no issues at all. Main activities for the week were mountain biking, hiking, 4-wheeling and sight seeing. I highly recommend these rentals!!

Really beautiful property here, smells new. Nice finishes and very comfortable furniture. Close to everything in town and a stones throw from the trails. Can’t wait to return!

Beautiful location and beautiful home. Scott & Sarah are extremely nice and highly communicative. An absolute pleasure booking with them. When back in Moab we will 100% stay here again!

It's hard to match the beauty of Moab. If you're looking for a 5-star stay in a 5-star town do not hesitate to book. This place has it all... cleanliness, comfort (seriously comfortable beds), all the amenities, and amazing hosts! Would not hesitate to stay here again and hope to have the opportunity in the future.
