Wonderful place to stay. Susan went out of her way to help us feel comfortable and taken care of, felt like family. Very cozy little place with a great kitchen and bedroom. Our little dog felt safe and was very happy, which is very important to us. Overall 5 stars!!

Great little casita that is well located in the North Valley region of the city. Surrounded by neighborhood shops to the south and urban farming to the north. Quick access to good walking trails. Very safe and quiet. Old Town is just a few easy minutes to the south on the main road (Rio Grande). Very clean and well appointed. Susan was great to work with. We would gladly use again.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Susie. She really put a lot of thought and care into our arrival experience and stay. We had everything we needed to be comfortable and she even offered to have a fire prepared for us on a very cold evening to save us the work. The casita is very comfortable and peaceful. Susie was always available for questions and it's obvious that she loves to entertain. I used to live down the street and I loved being able to walk down along the acequia and river. The North Valley is amazing and there are so many beautiful historic homes to see. It's also very close to anything you need but has a very calm and relaxed vibe. We truly enjoyed our stay and the time we were able to spend with Susie. Anyone would be thrilled to stay at this beautiful, historic casita. Thank you for the amazing hospitality Susie and we can't wait to visit again.

I arrived to this sweet casita late in the day during a heat wave and sadly the AC was not operating properly. Susan addressed the issue quickly and installed a brand new one. The casita was perfect, coffee & tea fixings, fresh blueberry muffins and oranges for the juice press were supplied in the kitchen. The location was excellent, in the valley close to walking trails and a block away from a nice restaurant and shops. I would happily stay here again.

Susan was a fabulous host that went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable during our stay. She is a wealth of information and even though we are local gave us some great tips. The location, size and amenities of the home were absolutely perfect for us. Susan accommodated our two dogs and even left them dog biscuits. (She left snacks for the humans as well.) The kitchen is well stalked for cooking a full meal, which we did a couple of times. The view from the kitchen window is delightful and looks over a green pasture with beautiful horses. The location is great for dog walking since it is a straight shot to a network of ditches and walking trails that seem endless. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
