better than a hotel

  • 4 of 5

we were in town to visit family and decided to try a private residence instead of a hotel for our stay. we found the experience and more specifically 'the casita' to be an improvement. privacy and amenities were excellent, the house was clean and quiet and met our needs. we plan to use this property again if available. contact with the owners was made just prior to our arrival and the directions to the property and access was provided in a timely manner.

we enjoyed the experience very much.

My little home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here twice now, and this place is just right. It is especially good for a lengthy stay given its laundry facilities and well-stocked kitchen. It is also roomy with all the right southern New Mexico stylistic touches. I like to walk around Mesilla, both the rural parts and the plaza, and the casita is located close to both. I used to live in Mesilla, so when I come back to visit, I always look for this place first.
