Sunny Oaks 'Casita' Studio ......forest, stream views.

Bedrooms 1
Property type studio
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Studio with queen bed and 3/4 Bath (sleeps 1 or 2 adults)

This beautiful, very private “casita style' studio, with separate outside entrance, is located on the walkout level of our hillside home, on a quiet canopied lane in Hot Springs Village.

Your hosts, Jim and Jill Anderson and resident retrievers, Sadie and Mac, will do everything possible to make your stay as pleasant as possible. This south of the border inspired studio is just the place to relax and enjoy the wonders of nature that abound here! Take the wooden ramp/walkway from your parking space to this special place, where the sounds of the woods and stream below offer serenity and peace for your special vacation.

Sunny Oaks features a comfortable sitting area with efficiency kitchen and soft, cozy places for reading and relaxing. The sleeping alcove features a chenille and quilt covered queen bed that faces the serenity of the forest thru full-length windows. A ¾ bath completes the interior. The studio is furnished with textiles and décor obtained from our visits to Ecuador, Mexico and Peru, along with original art and prints collected over many years. The spacious, covered 'cabana' deck provides for comfortable and private outdoor living, year around.

The location is ideal for those wanting easy access to all Village amenities, including golf courses, fitness center, trail systems, outdoor pools, tennis center and 12 beautiful lakes! Our quiet lane is a great place to take a “walk with nature” as it loops around thru the forest and back to your starting point..... exactly a mile in length. Along the way you may see deer, the red-tailed hawk, a turtle or two and lots of wildflowers. You may hear an owl and much conversation among birds in the canopy above. Sunny Oaks is 'dog friendly' and we will warmly welcome your travel companion, providing he/she has good house manners. A small pet fee is required.

If you will be traveling with friends, think about adding on our Forest Glen Apartment (VRBO property # 193378), another wonderful oasis in the forest that is easily accessible from Sunny Oaks, yet with it's own private entrance and outdoor living. Forest Glen is a one bedroom apartment featuring king bed; an efficiency kitchen with sitting area and full bath. Furnishings in Forest Glen are Asian/Indonesian/Eclectic. Just below the house, there is a woodland walkway step system leading to a forest deck that overlooks the stream. This deck can be accessed from both Forest Glen and Sunny Oaks. It's a peaceful and serene place to enjoy the abundance of nature. In addition, we have Writer's Den (VRBO property #1051610), a separate, small guest bedroom suite on the main level of the house. It can accommodate one adult traveling with guests staying in Sunny Oaks and/or Forest Glen.

About Jill Anderson

Greetings from Jim and Jill Anderson and Hot Springs Village! I am a former real estate broker and Jim has been a general contractor for 30 years, building everything from golf resorts to custom homes in PA, CO and AR. During the 90's in Durango, CO, we owned and operated Country Sunshine Bed and Breakfast. We miss many things about Colorado... including the awesome beauty, but we don't miss the cold or the snow and the high prices!

Jill Anderson purchased this studio in 2007

Why Jill Anderson chose Hot Springs Village

Today we are happily living the good life in Hot Springs Village. We decided on the Village after much on-line and in-person research. We wanted a beautiful spot, with low cost of living and lots of amenities that would be close to our children in Mississippi and Texas. We built our home here on Mano Way in 2008 and created our guest house with 2 apartments and one guest suite. We make our apts. available to friends and family who visit and paying guests who are looking for the peace, quiet and natural beauty we have here.

What makes this studio unique

We furnish our units with comfortable furniture and quality bedding. They are all nicely decorated with things we love….a few “family” antiques, original art and momentos we have picked up on our many travels. We are dog friendly, knowing that since our two golden retrievers are part of our family, your canine companions must be too! Come spend some time in the Village... play some golf, fish, hike, play tennis, swim, read and relax.... We look forward to making one of our vacation rentals your “home away from home”!

Nice and cozy. Missed having kitchen but small grill and microwave was provided. Noises could be heard from upstairs that made it difficult to sleep at times. But that being said, it was so clean and nicely decorated so we enjoyed our little getaway anyway. Thanks to the owners!

Serenity beyond belief!

  • 5 of 5

My BBF and I stayed at Sunny Oaks and it was the best decision we could've made! The Casita had everything we needed, and the privacy of the "backyard" was so serene and refreshing. Although we never ran into Jim and Jill, the directions provided before our arrival and tips and instructions upon our arrival were perfect.

The drive to their property was amazing, as the colors of fall were very apparent and a rare sight for those of us who don't get to experience true seasons (but we still love Texas more than any other state)!

The "Village" isn't far from nearby restaurants and stores, but one doesn't even have to drive out of the gate to enjoy all of the amenities this neighborhood has to offer.

We can't wait to visit again, and we very much appreciate the warmth and care Jim and Jill put into making their guests feel at home.
