Private Homes house description

Enjoy our Spanish-style one bedroom casita on the Animas River. The lavish interior, enhanced by local photographer’s art, provides a taste of Old Mexico while enjoying the comforts of a modern Colorado home.

While relaxing in the king size bed, gaze out at our flower gardens, the night sky, or morning sunrise. Enjoy the beauty of the bathroom's cobblestone shower and glass koi sink. The bedroom and living room both open to covered patios with fountains.

Out on the patio, cook on the gas grill and relax while listening to the river, viewing resident wildlife and spectacular views.

Our amenities include: microwave, refrigerator, crockpot, coffee maker, toaster oven (large enough for frozen pizza & rotisserie for chicken), Wi-Fi, flat screen TV, DVD.

Take advantage of some of the best fly- fishing (catch & release) on the Animas River.

Just 5 minutes from Animas Air Park and 10 minutes from Downtown Durango, our elegant casita provides a private get-away located on the Animas River south of town.

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: I designed Blue Dolphin to provide a tranquil atmosphere to relax, receive, and replenish. I am a Licensed Cosmetician and Certified Biofeedback Specialist. I offer luxurious body care treatments and Quantum Biofeedback at Blue Dolphin. I am also an enthusiastic photographer. My photos and cards can be viewed and purchased on site.

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      I built The Blue Dolphin to enjoy and share the unique beauty of southwestern Colorado with others who would appreciate it.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      As an avid fly fisherwoman, I have the distinct pleasure of fishing on my own property. And as a photographer, the endless beauty of this southwest location offers unlimited photo opportunities. Because I'm a pilot, I appreciate the convenience of Animas Air Park only 5 minutes away. The flower gardens are also a passion of mine.
