Jeff also lived in Maui, Sea Ranch, San Francisco & Sausalito.
Why the Owner Chose Abiquiu:
We decided we needed more wide open space and discovered Abiquiu! We bought our Northern New Mexico style Pitched Tin Roof home in Abiquiu, January 2006. We remodeled the North Wing of our home and converted it to a Vacation Rental Casita. Our occupancy rate has been 90%-100% each month ever since! We enjoy the company of our 2 Llamas 'Cusco' and 'Cinder', and the mini Sicilian Donkeys 'Shawnee', 'Daisy', 'Sunny' and 'Lolita'. (They stand only 3 feet high) ! In addition to our 3 Jack Russell Terriers, 'Maddie', 'Spicy' and 'Minnie' and our Cardigan Corgi named 'Soloman - a.k.a. 'Sully' and our precious cats 'Bibi' and 'Chumley'. For those of your with allergies, the Donkey and Llama Barn is located downwind 1000 feet from the Casita. Our friendly dogs are only allowed in the common areas if invited by the guests. We are all quiet and keep a very low profile and are around only when you need us. We both enjoy travel, cooking, wine and our Horse, Llamas and Pets. Jeff likes to Ski in winter and Sail in other places than New Mexico in summer and visited Panama twice this year. We enjoy meeting the wonderful people that have visited and many that have revisited from all around the country and some from other countries that have stayed at our Casita de Chuparosa here in Abiquiu! We look forward to your stay! Jeff & Marilyn
