Property description

This stylish abode is a fantastic blend of beauty and comfort about a mile from the heart of historic Old Mesilla. The amenities are new and quite luxurious. The unique furnishings and original local art are soft-toned and eclectic. There are possibilities everywhere for imagination, relaxation and harmony. Overlooking the quiet inner garden courtyard and pool, Sofia’s Suite is filled with warmth, light and sunny afternoons.

Whatever is happening during your stay in Las Cruces-Mesilla, coming home to relax or work will always be a pleasure. Enjoy the downstairs fitness room, the outdoor grill for a barbeque, the outdoor pool with lounge chairs for fresh air, and of course the simple ease of your own comfortable and gracious realm upstairs.

They say La Mesilla is the place where time stands still and it is true. Explore the historic neighborhoods, walk along the Rio Grande irrigation canals and imagine what it was like at this crossroads a century and more ago.

Las Cruces was the half-way point for travelers on the westward trek from San Antonio to San Diego, as well as southward bound from Santa Fe to Chihuahua. Today it is a lo-rise university town, home to 90,000 warm-hearted souls and surrounded by big southwestern skies and vistas. Nearby museums and art galleries, unusual shops and restaurants are wonderful and welcoming.

White Sands National Monument is less than an hour away, as are many other areas for hiking, exploring and relaxing. The Organ Mountains on the eastern edge of the city offer their grandeur to all, and reflect color and light distinctively throughout the day.

We welcome you to come stay for a few nights, weeks or months and invite you to enjoy this peaceful, stunning, small abode whenever and for whatever reason you come to Las Cruces.

Car: Recommended

There is a particular blend of old-world Mexican and the rural wild west here in Southwest New Mexico that is both intriguing and informative. Las Cruces and Old Mesilla have a distinctive place in history in an uncommon environment. Here are pecan groves and the Rio Grande, vast desert and alluring mountains, wide open vistas and sunny skies. The sunrise and sunset are equally beautiful and the air is clean and refreshing in this warm, friendly community.

Mesilla Abodes is both convenient and quiet. Just on the border of Old Mesilla with Las Cruces, access is easy from I-10 and to all points in both towns. Our beautifully landscaped complex has its own tranquil and appealing atmosphere.

Other Activities: Rio Grande Parks and Pecan Groves
