The apartment had more room than expected and did not feel like a studio apartment. Kayle was very attentive to our needs, which weren't much at all, since the place had everything we needed! We loved the location, as it is close enough to both Woodland Park and Colorado Springs for any shopping or dining, but still in the country! Nice combination! However, you don't have to go far to get good food. The Pantry is a must for breakfast! And LOTS of hiking trails within 10 miles of this location! We will be staying here again!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner , Kayle was there to greet us when we arrived, showed us around the property and was just a great host. The property had everything one would need , If you like secluded this is the place but yet within a couple of miles / minuets of things to do and restaurants , only a few miles from downtown Colorado Springs . We spent 4 nights and all was great.

Our apartment was more than we could have hoped for

  • 5 of 5

Our plane was late coming in to the Colorado Springs Airport and we still had to pick up our rental car. We called Kayle and explained and she assured us not to worry she would wait up for us. Bless her heart she was waiting on us when we got there at midnight. She was so kind and explained everything, gave us the keys and we said our goodnights. We were overwhelmed with the apartment. It was very roomy and was filled with all sorts of unusual works of art and personal items it had a very large kitchen with washer and dryer. It was clean, quiet and had wonderful views. It was close enough to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. We were close to all the tourist stops and we also found several new ones. We cannot say enough good things about our lovely ranch apartment. Kayle was a wonderful host and we will see her again

A very spacious and comfortable place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Kayle is a wonderful hostess and the apartment is equipped with everything necessary for creature comfort. I like to cook, and had plenty of kitchen supplies to work with. The location is fabulously set out in the mountains, but very close to Colorado Springs and Woodland Park. I found so many great hiking trails in the area and even on the property. I hated to leave!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful property with such great energy. The Casita is a historical landmark with so much history, decorated with authentic Native American Art.

The apartment is spacious, plenty of room for an indoor yoga session. Outside there is a beautiful garden, a river, and a short walk to a waterfall. We enjoyed morning meditation near the river. Shopping is a few miles away, and adventure is right out the door.

Garden of the Gods is breathtaking and a few miles away, so many places to explore for free. Yummy restaurants in town, endless hiking, biking, and things to do.

Kayle, our host, is the sweetest lady and made us feel truly at home, she loved our dogs and showed exceptional care.

The Casita will hold a special place in our hearts for the rest of our lives.
