Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Need to sleep more than 2? See listing #434187 Same location, $100/nite

An elegant, one-bedroom casita on a one-half acre lot, located in the Picacho Country Club Community at the base of Picacho Mountain. The innkeeper is an ardent art collector who uses his rental as a palette to display his passion for art. The furnishings and amenities are what one hopes for but seldom receives in a vacation rental. The kitchen is provided with the necessary appliances and elegant dinnerware which makes returning to Casita Picacho at the end of a day adventuring in Las Cruces and environs a pleasure. Casita Picacho is adjacent to VRBO Listing #434187, a 2500 sq. ft. luxury residence. The two vacation rentals share a common laundry, accessible only through locked, private doors.

About Donald Kotowski

Yes, dear Reader - that photo was taken atop Mt St Helens in August, 1979. Mt St Helens got a 3000 ft haircut in May, 1980. The mountain in the background is Mt Rainier. This tells you much about me - I was an avid hiker, climber, bicycler and all-round adventurer - business and health permitting. I had fallen in love with New Mexico when I attended University here in 1959. The passage of time made living in northern climes increasingly difficult. What better place to spend my "Golden Years" in the forever sunny, rarely snow covered, user friendly clime of New Mexico?

Why Donald Kotowski chose Picacho Hills

Las Cruces is located in the Chihuahua Desert and is surrounded by the incredible rocky peaks of the Organ Mountains, the San Andreas Mountains, and some of the most beautiful desert landscape in the US. The hiking possibilities are endless as are the activities for the young at heart and at least moderately fit. New Mexico State University has many activities which are community oriented throughout the year. This property is located in a country club community near all the wonders Las Cruces provides

What makes this apartment unique

Why do I love this house, this property, this community? Among other benefits: Space! Space! Space! Additional benefits? Mature community, seasoned citizens like me (geezers), access to the university community, unique culture with roots back to the 1500's. Restaurant wait help that invariably asks "Red or Green?" (chilies) after you have ordered a spicy entree. I assure you - that is unique to New Mexico
