Perfect family gathering

  • 5 of 5

The Lizard House was the perfect place for us to call "home". The four generations all gathered around the patio and dining room table. What a joy! Thank you!

Wonderful adobe treasure trove.

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at the Lizard House. It was funky and cool at the same time. It had everything we needed and more. The photos don’t do the house justice, because it was beyond expectation.

The house was in a great location close to the Rio Grande, with easy access to the old town, and historic route 66.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Very eclectic and spacious house. Loved the outside space as much as the inside space. Great location and easy access to restaurants, hiking trails and sight seeing! House well equipped and comfortable.

Excellent home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the lizard house. It was spacious, artfully decorated and very well equipped. The only nit we had was the lack of a privacy curtain/blind in one of the bathrooms. The neighborhood is quiet with excellent walking and birding around the Bachechi open space that loops back to the house. There is easy access within a 5 minute drive to dining and other supplies including freshly roasted coffee. Laura was very responsive to any questions we had - even over the Christmas break.

All in all highly recommended!
