About Azaima Anderson
I grew up in Chicago and began my career in New York, but when I got a taste of the country, I never moved back. I spent 25 years in Maine. Then the New Mexican sunshine beckoned. My interests are music and the healing arts. I'm an interfaith minister who has performed weddings on this land. I've recorded 4 CDs. Three of them are of original songs. My music is lyric-driven, and that dictates the style. Some songs are folk, others pop, rock, blues, country and jazz. Most recently, I've composed a meditative CD of prosperity chants in the Sufi tradition. My songwriting is currently aimed at supporting causes I care about. On the healing front, I'm passionate about helping people get out of their own way so they can make the changes they want to see in themselves and the world. I have a created a technique called Heart Lightning transformational coaching that quickly removes mental and emotional blocks in as little as one session. I prefer to combine this work with an astrology reading and shamanic healing. I also teach yoga. I'm happy to offer any of these services to guests. I share the house with two wonderful dogs who keep me so entertained I've forgotten how to use the remote control. I'm an introvert, but I love getting to know people and helping them in any way I can.
Azaima Anderson purchased this Lodge in 2006
Why Azaima Anderson chose Silver City
Silver City has a perfect year-round climate. This property is spacious and quiet, yet conveniently located to town and to natural attractions. Apaches used to live on this land, and we've found arrowheads on the grounds.
What makes this Lodge unique
I could spend forever looking out the window at the mountains and wildlife. All the animals you see on this listing were photographed through the bedroom windows.
Check-in: 4:00 PM

My family had a fantastic time at your home and will definitely go back to get away again.
Not what was expected
Upon arrival, we were surprised to find out that we were not alone in the house. I was under the impression that my family was the only one with access to our portion of the house. Not so, we opened doors that were not locked and came upon other guests who were quite rude. At that point we became uncomfortable enough to decide to leave and stay at a local hotel. When contacting the owner about our experience we were informed that there was a strict no refund policy. After another attempt to communicate with the owner, the owner chose not to respond to me. Worst experience I have ever had using VRBO and extremely surprised at the owners lack of willingness to come to some sort of resolution.
These renters had no one invading their space. The first line in the property description says it is one of three rental units under the same roof. My directions detailed how to find all of the rooms they had rented. These renters opened doors that had signs on them indicating they belonged to other rental units they had not rented.
Check in ends at 9 pm. My caretaker waited up for them until midnight. They arrived after he went to bed. These renters turned on lights in every rental unit. They opened the door that went to the upstairs rental unit, waking the renters up there. After ten minutes of hearing them make noise, the upstairs renters asked them to be quiet. The upstairs renters never ventured out of the space they had rented.
I regret that my directions and descriptions were never read or respected, and that the other renters were disturbed. I learn from every bad review, and this one prompted me to put deadbolt locks between each of my rental units so this won’t happen again.
Close to town, yet a world away!
Ann and I thoroughly enjoyed our way-too-short 48 hours in Silver City. We chose Azaima’s “Heart and Wings Retreat” as a base for exploring Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument and Silver City. Azaima’s “Tanager Suite” was lovely — surprisingly large, full kitchen, living room, bedroom with huge windows overlooking bird feeders and woods. Even a sitting area w/sofa bed. Lovely decor, spiritual touches throughout. And very clean. We’d love to return to explore more of the region. Thanks to Azaima, Brandon and pups Zola and Cassie!
True quality in furnishings and decor. Fabulous to awaken to Sunrises and bird watching!
Azaima was perfect host— low key, totally unobtrusive.
Beautiful views close to the city
The property was beautiful and very comfortable. Great views and just a few minutes driving to the historic downtown for shopping and dinner. The host was very responsive. Highly recommend.
Lovely location close to town
I really enjoyed staying here. The property is beautiful and a nice distance from town. The host was pleasant and helpful, but otherwise left us to our own devices. While we knew there were others staying at the property, it wasn't noticable except for a few stray words as people walked by.
The town of Silver City is full of art galleries, and world class restaurants. The cliff dwellings are the main tourist attraction, and the drive there is spectacular. The Gila Forest is full of beautiful hiking trails including the Continental Divide Trail. The Gila hot springs are definitely worth a soak. City of Rocks has beautiful formations.
