The cottage offers ample parking and a private patio. It features one large bedroom with a queen-sized bed. Additionally, the bedroom has a large closet and a sitting area. The spacious bathroom has a tiled shower. The living room has a full-sized sleeper sofa, adjacent dining area and a 32 inch LCD flat screen HDTV with basic satellite service. Wi-Fi is provided.

Peaceful refuge

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best VRBOs that I have stayed at! The casita is homey and comfortable. The neighborhood is beautiful for walks, mountain views and deer sightings! Dog friendly, which is a great plus. A quick 5 min drive into town. Very functional kitchenette: we cooked all meals. Ron is a gracious host. Already planning my next trip back!

Perfect location, great view, very nice place, very well kept

  • 5 of 5

The small house was perfect for me and 3 kids. It has nice features, was very well cleaned, and has an efficient layout. The kitchen is modest but plenty for cooking (we cooked all 3 nights we stayed). There is an excellent view out the front door, and step onto the quiet road and the vista is spectacular. Also, it's a very short ride from an excellent mountain bike trail (no need to put the bike on the road). Ron was helpful and easy to work with, and the price was reasonable. So excellent in all categories.

Awesome little place!

  • 5 of 5

The Starry nights casita was everything we'd hoped that it would be. Ron and his wife were very nice and accommodating! We liked that it was still very close to town and the views at night are amazing, we will definitely be staying here again in the summer months!!

Ron was a terrific host. I can't say enough about my stay. My only complaint is that I had to go.

No better place to be

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! Cozy not cramped, plenty of blankets and pillows, close to town but still very quiet. Salida is full of personality. We will return!

Starry, Starry Nights is truly a gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was such fun way to experience Salida. The mountain views were incredible, the starry nights were fantastic, and the place was adorable. It was perfect and so affordable for our little mountain getaway. We received such a warm welcome when we arrived that it felt like we were visiting family. They left the light on for us! We will definitely stay here again sometime... probably in the summer so we can experience the starry nights more and the cute little outdoor area and grill! Thanks!
