Property description

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.

Keywords: Spanish-style home, Southwest, Colorado, 10 minutes from Durango, 5 minutes from Animas Air Park

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Durango, CO, USA:
I built The Blue Dolphin to enjoy and share the unique beauty of southwestern Colorado with others who would appreciate it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
