Enjoy our Spanish-style one bedroom casita on the Animas River. The lavish interior, enhanced by local photographer’s art, provides a taste of Old Mexico while enjoying the comforts of a modern Colorado home.
While relaxing in the king size bed, gaze out at our flower gardens, the night sky, or morning sunrise. Enjoy the beauty of the bathroom's cobblestone shower and glass koi sink. The bedroom and living room both open to covered patios with fountains.
Out on the patio, cook on the gas grill and relax while listening to the river, viewing resident wildlife and spectacular views.
Our amenities include: microwave, refrigerator, crockpot, coffee maker, toaster oven (large enough for frozen pizza & rotisserie for chicken), Wi-Fi, flat screen TV, DVD.
Take advantage of some of the best fly- fishing (catch & release) on the Animas River.
Just 5 minutes from Animas Air Park and 10 minutes from Downtown Durango, our elegant casita provides a private get-away located on the Animas River south of town.

I built The Blue Dolphin to enjoy and share the unique beauty of southwestern Colorado with others who would appreciate it.
As an avid fly fisherwoman, I have the distinct pleasure of fishing on my own property.
And as a photographer, the endless beauty of this southwest location offers unlimited photo opportunities.
Because I'm a pilot, I appreciate the convenience of Animas Air Park only 5 minutes away.
The flower gardens are also a passion of mine.
First trip to Durango and were so excited, Patty's beautiful casita on the Animas River made our trip over the top! She was an excellent host and we can't wait to come back, everything you need for a home away from home! Her flowers scattered all over outside made it all the more charming! We saw mule deer out our bedroom window, and just a WOW experience! Even her cute kitty Charlie was a sweet greeter, we just loved it all, thanks Patty!!!! We shall book again!
A beautiful "base of operations" from which to explore Durango and the surrounding area. Patty was a great hostess, very unobtrusive even though living right next door, shared some good travel stories with her. The grounds around the casita were well kept, with lots of chairs and loungers for sitting outside and listening to the constant background music of the river. Even without air conditioning, the casita was still cool in the July afternoons if we closed it up in the early morning before we left to explore. Wish we could win the lottery and try to convince Patty to sell this place to us, but we'll probably just have to come back again as tourists.....
This casita was great for our adventures around Durango. The beautiful interior was filled with awesome furnishings, the landscape was blooming with flowers, and the view of the Animas River was soothing. This location was perfect from which to explore local attractions - riding the train, visiting Mesa Verde National Park, hiking Vallecito Creek and visiting breweries in Durango. Patty was a great hostess - thank you.
Patty was great...her Casita on the Banks of the Animas River, a blessing.
Hello Everyone, Just getting back from our stay from Southwest Colorado, & have to say, the one best thing we've done is book our stay here at this Casita"...From the start, it made our first time trip to the Durango area the perfect setting to bed down at...We made this our base for the week & found it to be the perfect location for our stay...Quite, and peaceful as one would want...Patty, (the owner) was around if you needed, but the Casita was equipped with everything you can possibly need...We're surely going to make it a point to again stay there...
Thanks so much Patty for operating such a nice place & having your door open for us...Without even knowing it, you were a fantastic Host, & Thank You for that...

Well, what everyone else said. We agree. Besides the beautiful flowers and the colorful birds, the hostess, Ms Patty is the bomb, as is her baking. It was hard to leave.
