Why Chris and Alexis chose New Mexico

My wife and I chose this home due to the benefits of this particular location. This home is close to all of the amenities and needs of daily life while being able to retreat into one of the most quiet, beautiful, and awarding neighborhoods in Las Cruces for shopping, dining, and schools. Our needs, however, have changed and expanded with our growing family, but we hope others may enjoy what we have loved for years.

What makes this house unique

Walk or minutes drive to shopping, dining, and entertainment district. Walking, hiking, and park trails nearby. Blocks away from public transportation. Safe and quiet neighborhood. Wonderful and welcoming neighbors.

Christmas holiday at the Sonoma Ranch Property in Las Cruces NM.

  • 3 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Sonoma Ranch property in Las Cruces, NM. The house was very conveniently located and was more than adequate and comfortable for the eight of us who stayed there. Everyone enjoyed playing air hockey from children to adults. We do look forward to staying here for lodging in the future. Thanks for a great time during the Christmas holiday.

Owner's Response: We thank you for being such wonderful, respectful guests. You followed all rules and went out of your way to clean up the property prior to departure. We accidentally gave you a lower cleanliness review score, and are now told that we are unable to make changes, so we are attempting to let future home owners know that you deserve 5 stars in all areas. We would love to have you as guests in our home again any time!

perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for six nights in July. We were in Las Cruces for NMSU orientation, and wanted to spend more time getting to know the city and area. This home was great - roomy enough for four adults and an 18 year old. Very spacious master bedroom, and spacious and clean throughout, and abundant sunlight through skylights. Quiet part of town, close to plenty of food (dine-out and grocery) and campus is five minutes away, downtown museums are 10 minutes away, dining and shops in Mesilla about 15 minutes away, Organ Mountains about 20 minutes away. No problems with anything at all! Will stay here again if/when we're in town visiting our Aggie!

Very pleased with property

  • 5 of 5

We found the property to be accurately represented by its description on VRBO site. Everything was clean. There were plenty of towels. We used both bedrooms and one of the futons for sleeping. We played on the air hockey table, which was fun. The large square table accommodated extended family who came over for dinner. There were plenty of dishes and pans for cooking and eating. The refrigerator was clean, and there were basic spices and oil for use; perhaps leftover from former guests. The coffee maker worked just fine. It was nice to have 2 ice cube trays for ice. The beds both were comfortable. The bathrooms were very clean. When we had an issue with the AC, the owner was very attentive. He even called and discussed it with us. The location is truly very convenient to shopping, groceries, and hiking. The patio area was delightful for evening star gazing. The sunrise was awesome looking toward the mountains. We were in Las Cruces for New Mexico State graduation, and it was a very short drive to the university. We drove to White Sands and Ruidoso. We would definitely recommend this home for rental.

Convenient Home

  • 4 of 5

I found the home to be as described. The fenced yard was great for my small dog and the

neighborhood was safe with sidewalks for walking. Excellent location ! Everything needed

was provided.
