We enjoyed our stay at Adobe Agave
We enjoyed our stay at Adobe Agave
This rental was exactly as advertised. We loved our stay, and agree with everything stated in the previous review. The owner was very helpful to us, and did everything possible to make our stay a real pleasure.

Owner response: Nancy and Bill were such a delight to get to know. They stayed here, having recently returned home from their twelve year sojourn on their barge in France. [Send me an email if you would like their website address that chronicles their life on a barge - very inspiring.] This is the fun of Adobe Agave - getting to meet so many delightful and interesting people!
I'd go back in a minute.

This place was great to stay in for a week or longer. The bed was really comfy, there were lots of big fluffy towels, and the kitchen was fully equipped with quality goods. The decor was tastefully put together and enhanced by a lovely garden in front and a private garden area in back. It was easy to walk downtown to the historic district (although walking back uphill was a bit harder). I loved the books that are to be found in each unit - a real renaissance reading experience. Our host was helpful and kind, friendly without being imposing, and always ready with helpful information. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly as well. Sure beats the Comfort Inn, where I stayed the first visit.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: After 14 years in the computer field, property owner, Ellen O'Bryan relocated from the Puget Sound area to Silver City. Having spent most of her life around water - growing up on Galveston Island, living in Puerto Rico and Puget Sound - Ellen finds New Mexico, and the high desert of the Silver City area, truly the Land of Enchantment with the amazing colors, the star-studded nights, the stellar weather, and wonderful people.
Why the Owner Chose Silver City:
Ellen fell in love with New Mexico during the (MANY;-) years attending graduate school at UT Austin - a destination well worth the day long drive across Texas. During her yearly trips to New Mexico, Ellen dreamed of one day living in New Mexico. As Adobe Agave's owner & proprietor, Ellen O'Bryan, has found the realization of another dream - to own and run a small vacation rental of individual cottages - like the old motor court motels she saw on summer family road trips - in a magical setting. Ellen bought the adobe sixplex that houses Adobe Agave in 2006 and spent the first two years renovating, furnishing and decorating Adobe Agave. Ellen considers Adobe Agave to be an ongoing work of art, is always making improvements, and thoroughly enjoys refining her vision and caring for her guests.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Another one of Ellen's lifelong interests has been architecture - in particular, the creation of unique living spaces and earth built structures. So she finds the perfect blending of this interest in Adobe Agave. The foot thick adobe walls and the simplicity of the 110+ year old structure of Adobe Agave provides a peaceful, quiet, tranquility that both Ellen and her guests enjoy.
