Sun Mesa House is located on Florida Mesa just 9 miles south of Downtown Durango Colorado. With 360-degree view of southwest Colorado it is no less than spectacular. The House is surrounded by irrigated farmland. You look across the hay fields to see the La Plata Mountains, Needles Peaks, and even down into New Mexico. It is just amazing views, amazing sunsets, it feels like real old west painting.
Sun Mesa House is about 15 Min. drive from Downtown Durango, 10 Min. from the Air Port and BP Head offices, 10 Min. from Mercy Medical Hospital, 30 Min. from Aztec NM , 45 Min. from Farmington, and 30 Min. from Ignacio and the Sky Ute Casino.
The house occupies the upstairs of a duplex. It has it’s own private parking, entrance, and fenced back yard with double decks. On Sun Mesa Farm we have horses, a donkey, chickens, cats and large friendly dog, all of which are fenced out of your private back yard!
Dine on the back deck that looks directly across the fields to the La Plata Mountains. Out here in the country we have very dark skies providing a rare night vision; it's ablaze with stars.
Sun Mesa House is very comfortable. The large master bedroom suite has a King-sized Tempurpedic bed dressed with fine linens. The walk in closet is equipped with a front-loading washer and dryer that makes laundry easy.
It's master bathroom features a large Jacuzzi tub, jetted for great bubble baths. Equipped with a separate shower the bathroom feels luxurious with lots of space, towels, and robes. The second bathroom is a half bath at the top of the stairs adjacent to the living room.
This house features a kitchen that would delight any cook. Large and U shaped, it opens to the living room, creating an ideal space for entertaining. Plentiful counter space, high-end appliances, and a gas range all create a easy and open space to cook. Plenty of dishes, pans, and even nice chefs knives are provided. You can count on nice pots and pans, good knives, coffee pot, microwave, toaster, crock-pot and blender to make meals effortless. If you enjoy cooking, you will love this kitchen!
The comfortable living room has a sleeper couch that makes into a queen sized bed. There is also a large high definition flat screen TV, making movie night a special event.
Feel welcomed by the entryway that features a coat closet and a place to put your shoes. Follow the stairs up into a home of lofted ceilings.
We had a ton of fun decorating this house with a modern southwest, cowboy feel. It is sunny and bright and set out in beautiful country. I think you will just love it!
Just a note about the name: Sun Mesa. In Durango and the North Valley you in a valley and the sun goes down early. Up here on Florida Mesa we get a couple more hours of sunshine per day. This is wonderful in the winter. The house has south facing windows that let the sunshine in.
There is a Solar PV Array that covers all of the electrical needs of Sun Mesa House.

This is an amazing place. The mountain view is tremendous. For families there is a collection of farm animals around property that was so much fun. Chickens and mules were delightful and tame. It is a short distance by car from town but that is a plus. Nicely furnished with comfortable bed and sofa bed.
The place looks great as always. We have stayed here multiple times and Holly and Ben do a great job of making us feel like we're at home! We just love the views of the mountains and the horses grazing out in the field. It's nice and quiet most of the time except for the occasional donkey bray and the kids playing in the front yard. Our only complaint from last time was the temperature in the afternoon but there is a shiny new AC unit on the wall and it feels nice and cool in here now! Thanks again for the great space to stay and unwind from our busy city life.
This unit was perfect for my husband, myself and my son. Has a fully bath and a half and laundry facilities. The bed was super comfortable and I adored the chickens out back. It's a five-eight minute drive from Durango which we did not mind at all. I would definitely stay here again!
A friendly family welcomed us to their small farm outside of town. The small but comfortable home was a perfect base for our family of 4. My young son enjoyed the toys and swing set. The master bed was comfortable and the sofa bed was made when we arrived for the kids. My only negative comment is that the kitchen isn't stocked enough, fridge was empty ( no condiments), no spices, I could have used a Pyrex dish but was still able to make a couple basic meals.
I loved staying at this beautiful property. The views were amazing. My days starting with coffee and sunrise and ended with good wine and spectacular sunsets. I just loved seeing the horses run in the fields surrounding the house and the owners dogs are so sweet and friendly. The owners, Ben and Holly were delightful hosts. The house itself is comfortable and well appointed. I will definitely be back.
We stayed in this cozy little place for almost 2 months. It is AWESOME! Holly & Ben are the most amazing hosts. Completely laid back & flexible, yet if you need anything they will do their best to get it to you right away. From their generosity with letting us share in their fresh eggs right from the little chicken house next door, to grabbing things right from their own kitchen if we needed something.
The location is great in so many ways. It is private, Holly & Ben live right next door but they never pester or pry, their little boy is the cutest dude. The views from the kitchen sink or the decks out back are incredible. We watched the sunset almost every night on the mountains, so beautiful. If you're an early riser the sunrises are incredible!
Regarding internet service, some others mentioned having problems. However, we figured out that if you set the DNS settings on your devices to use a different DNS provider than the internet service the internet works flawlessly. We used Netflix and made VoIP calls all the time! We brought our Chromecast and ran Netflix on the great flat screen. Go to Opendns.com for instructions on how to set up any device.
Occasionally the satellite receiver wouldn't want to show video (you could hear the channel, no picture). We figured out that if you didn't turn it off, just let it time out on its own, it would always turn back on without a problem. You can turn off the TV.
A couple things to note: You have a great backyard with two decks to sit out in & enjoy the views, sip your coffee & bbq. However, next door is a little chicken coop, it doesn't smell, but occasionally the chickens get a little excited in the mornings. We enjoyed the entertainment & they never woke us up or bothered our enjoyment of a cup of coffee on the back deck. There are a couple of horses & a donkey. Every now and then the donkey likes to bray a bit when hungry. Its, never annoying (Holly/Ben feed him right away) & actually worth a chuckle or three! The nice thing is the little farm activity is blocked mostly by a beautiful tree and their garden (which Holly offered for us to pick from at our leisure, yum fresh veggies).
Our only complaint was the bed, a bit too hard for us. Holly mentioned they are planning on replacing it soon. We tried it w/o the topper and actually liked it better.
