                                                        Splendid Time!

                                                        Janice J.

                                                        This casita is extremely comfortable and the best stocked rental we have ever stayed in! Lleta and Ken were very helpful especially since we were arriving late at night. Ken was very helpful and sent photos to me of where the keys and flashlight were located as well as the approach to the casita. The kitchen was well-equipped with coffee, milk, snacks, fruit, and breakfast. There was a variety of blankets and pillows to choose from for comfort. The home was also well stocked with information for the area which included books, and flyers from various attractions. Beautifully decorated with Santa Fe style--a delight to explore each day! A great place to stay out of town, yet close enough to the highway for easy access to downtown. A lovely area for morning/evening walks. We enjoyed our breakfast on the side veranda each morning. For an extra delight, the greenhouse is an added treat!

                                                        Fantastic Vacation

                                                        Kevin B.

                                                        We had a great time and a great stay at Ken and Lleta's place. It had great views and was away from the hustle and bustle of Santa Fe, but not so much that it was inconvenient. Ken and Lleta are really great hosts and will help you figure out where to go and what to do on your visit if you need help. We would definitely stay there again.

                                                        Thanks for your kind words. We really enjoy our guests and love to share New Mexico and Santa Fe with them. The views here on great. On a clear day you can see into Colorado. Lots of hiking and sights nearby with all the great restaurants and museums nearby.


                                                        Lynn L.

                                                        This was my fourth stay at the Casita and, as always, it was delightful. The owners attend to every detail, including luscious bathrobes for their guests use and snacks and fresh fruit in the kitchen.

                                                        I have one more visit booked, and expect to book more.

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        We are glad your are comfortable here and look forward to your visits. We always try to add new touches to the Casita and try to make it feel like home.


                                                        Robert P.

                                                        The property was wonderful and it was a peaceful stay. Great mountain view during the day and awesome star gazing at night. I highly recommend this place.

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        So glad you were able to join the peace, serenity and night skies at Christmas time. You can be at the festivities in Santa Fe in a few minutes and still enjoy the quiet of the Casita.
