                            My husband and I stayed at the Solar House for a month and a half, and had a wonderful experience. We are a young couple that have had other long-term winter rentals, but THIS one has been our favorite so far! The house is large, and the rooms are 'roomy,' all with vaulted/wood beam ceilings, and the moment we first walked in, we were greeted with the lovely woodsy aroma. The kitchen, pantry, bathrooms, etc. were all well-stocked and we had no problems/did not have to buy any extras to get by (no new knives, pillows, or pans, as we've had to do in the past). The internet connectivity was also very good, and, as the owner told us before we arrived, we were able to watch movies and shows online without problems. We never had any maintenance or other issues, but the local caretaker was very easy to get ahold of when we had questions about checking out & house cleaning. Location-wise, the house is great, and we often enjoyed walks in the evening/night, up to the University, down to Bullard, and back. Also, check out historic Fort Bayard for an early evening walk - it's awesome! We would stay again in a heartbeat!

                            I am a student who rented this beautiful spacious adobe home in downtown Silver City while doing a rotation at the hospital in town. The house was in a perfect location to allow me to take on-call hospital calls but also allow me to be close enough to downtown allowing me the chance to experience Silver City, New Mexico. The location and house could not have been more perfect for my rotation! I was able to walk to a variety of coffee shops and restaurants to study. On my runs around the neighborhood I came across a trail 2 blocks away that connects to an excellent mountain biking trail. This is a beautiful house in a beautiful location! I highly recommend this house to any student coming to the area!

                            We enjoyed our stay at the Solar House greatly! While we have a long history of visiting Silver City, we have never had a short term home that combined such convenient access to downtown and the best restaurants, with a beautifully appointed southwestern style home! The outdoor courtyard and second story porch were particularly appreciated, as they provided easy access to the great weather and beautiful mountain views. We will be looking to return to the Solar House in the future when we visit Silver City!

                            The house has been just great. I have some friends here in Silver who came by and the big kitchen was a wonderful gathering place. It's so nice to be able to come back from work and cook real food. I like being three blocks from downtown and three blocks from Boston Hill. Yes, we found the trailhead and last night we enjoyed a gorgeous sunset from up there! Thanks again, we will be back soon! -A

                            We're leaving tomorrow morning after a wonderful month in Silver City. We've loved being in your house and are candidates to return next year. And we love the variety of things to do here, especially the hiking and wandering through the landscape. The house location is perfect. Many thanks!

                            Nice place you've got here. We're settling in nicely and have developed a nice routine of a walk up Boston Hill in the morning and, for me, writing in the afternoon. There's a foot of snow falling in Maine and it was 75 and sunny here. Hallelujah. Your place is very well equipped... Many thanks.
