"Great condo, my son and I had three great days at Angel Fire. The condo is updated with a well stocked kitchen. It had everything we needed and more. Very close to the ski lifts, shops & restaurants. We'll be back!!"

A lovely getaway for those who want to soak up the local charm.
"Amelia was a lovely find. A charming, cozy, accommodating retreat for those who wish to soak in the spirit of New Mexico on a budget, and small-pet friendly. The surrounding land and views are wonderful. A perfect view of the sunset. However, if you are seeking a private, little hideaway, be aware that this is within easy walking distance of the home of the land's owner. A lovely presence, but a presence nonetheless. Would highly recommend for travelers who love to explore the surrounding countryside. An easy car trek to Santa Fe, Taos, and other lovely areas. Also, highly recommend exploration of Abiquiu and the local businesses. Travelers will enjoy a lovely, nostalgic stay in the sweet Amelia. However, not for those yearning for the "solitude" version of soul-seeking."

"This was our first month long visit to Las Cruces and we found this clean and comfortable home quiet, spacious and very relaxing. The master bedroom was the only one we used and the bed was very comfy and cozy warm. The well equipped and supplied kitchen provided everything we could possibly need to make our meals. Laundry facilities were super and I was delighted to find that I could hang our clothes in the coat closet to dry in just a few hours, not even needing the dryer. We used the pellet stove when nights were chilly for cozy movie viewing. TV stations were limited, but we enjoyed those available and could watch others on our ipad. Internet router sometimes needed to be restarted.
The host provided a basketful of tourism literature, providing us with more ideas than we had time to use. We hiked in the Picacho mountains right behind the house on many days and also enjoyed Soledad Canyon, Aguirre Springs, and Dinosaur Tracks National Monument, all close by. We also took day trips to White Sands and other delightful destinations in SW New Mexico. We couldn't have been more delighted with the beautiful weather. Mornings required a sweater or light jacket but by each afternoon the temperature climbed to the 60's and 70's which was a delight. This was a very positive winter get-away experience."

Authentic & beautifully appointed New Mexican retreat; great home base for exploration!
"A wonderful place from which to explore and appreciate the beauty and culture of northern New Mexico, this casita reflects the loving care of its owner. Julia is a thoughtful and considerate host. When my flight to Albuquerque was delayed 8 hours, I phoned Julia to tell her I'd be arriving after dark. To make sure I'd be able to find her place on a moonless night, she hung a string of electric lights at the entrance of the driveway. She emailed me to ask what I liked for breakfasts, before my arrival. Being able to cook and enjoy a real, leisurely breakfast each morning was a treat. If you're a coffee fan, Julia provides perfectly roasted regular and decaf beans which you freshly grind for a truly delicious cup of java. I also found beautiful, ripe tomatoes at a local roadside stand, which were deliciously complemented by fresh basil from Julia's vegetable garden.
It turns out that Nambe is right in the middle of all the sights I wanted to see: Taos, Rio Grande gorge, Espanola, Valle Caldera, Bandelier National Monument, local pueblos, Los Alamos, Santa Fe, SF Opera, and the "santuario" in Chimayo, (just 10 miles away). BTW, make sure you bring your camera. The mountains and sandstone formations of this area are stunning: a geologist's wonderland. It's also an area with some excellent restaurants, well known for authentic New Mexican cuisine.
Bottom line: A+! A great place to restore one's soul and convenient place to stay for any period of time. I've already recommended Julia's casita to friends and plan on returning in the future."
