About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Come enjoy our beautiful Craftsman style home in the historic Alameda Depot District in the downtown area and near the famous Farmers Market.

Our home is warm and inviting with 3-bedrooms, 3 full baths (with jetted tub in master bath) with large open kitchen, wet bar and wine chiller, separate sitting area, flat screen tv, wireless internet access, and washer and dryer.

Our home is beautifully landscaped in both the front and back outdoor living areas.

The original part of the house was built in 1946 and has been recently renovated to include all the modern amenities without losing its original charm.

Relax or entertain on the large deck with the tranquil sounds of a waterfall and fish pond and views of the Organ Mountain peaks.

You will love the proximity to downtown, two parks, the first within half a block includes a swimming pool and tennis courts.

The Farmers Market is only a few blocks away as is downtown Las Cruces. You'll also enjoy a five-minute drive to Old Mesilla, a quaint little town with shopping and restaurants where you can enjoy the local New Mexican cuisine.

If you enjoy mountain climbing or exploring new sites, the Organ Mountains and White Sands National Park are within driving distance.

About Owner/Property Manager

I enjoy running daily with my dog Harley, a beautiful black lab who hates water. I grew up in the southwest and love the desert - there's nothing like the smell of the desert after it rains! Hiking the beautiful Organ mountains will be one of my favorite things to do when my husband Robert and I move to Las Cruces.

Cooking is one of my hobbies and I love cooking New Mexican and Mexican cuisine- I make a mean roasted chile (pepper) salsa!

My husband Robert and I look forward to someday moving to Las Cruces to the beatiful home you'll enjoy on your vacation in this beautiful oasis in the desert.

We'd love to have you as a guest!

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Las Cruces

Robert and I bought this home in Las Cruces because we fell in love with it as soon as we saw it. We love the downtown historic area of Las Cruces and are glad our home fits right in this beautiful neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

You'll love watching the sunrise on the huge deck in the beautifully landscaped backyard to the sounds of a waterfall in the coy pond.

In the evening you can enjoy watching the sunset sitting in the front porch on our two comfortable rocking chairs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jamie was the perfect guest. It was hard to tell anyone had stayed in the house. We hope Jamie comes back soon!

Charming and stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home! From the outside it looks like a small charming home but once you step in its stunning! Kitchen and every room is Updated with 3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms, lots of privacy. Super clean and well stocked. Owners are very thoughtful and available for any questions. They have lots of brochures available of places to visit and eat. Close to shopping and restaurants. We highly recommend this home. We visited Hatch and bought chli, we drove up to Santa Fe although it's 4 hours it's worth the drive, so leave early. We stopped in Albuquerque too. White sands national monument is a must visit just 49 minutes away. We had a great time. We've stayed in many vacation rentals and this is one of the best!!!

Impeccably appointed and well maintained!

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly hidden gem in downtown Las Cruces. The home is immaculately clean and maintain and well appointed. There was absolutely nothing we needed in terms of toiletries, kitchen utensils cleaning supplies, etc. we only needed to drive to the grocery store (which isn’t far away) for any additional food and snacks we desired.

Highly recommend to visitors who are looking for something that is pet friendly as well as looking for something that is similar to an at home environment and off the beaten path of a regular hotel room.

Thank you Martha and Robert for being such gracious host !

Definitely need to stay here

  • 5 of 5

This property is wonderful. It has everything you need and more! As an example, they provide not only a hair dryer but a curling iron, not only a few pots and pans but a large assortment of Tupperware for leftovers. They note they provide coffee and creamer so I was expecting the dry powdered creamer. Instead they had fresh half and half. The fruit and wine bottle were also a nice touch and felt very welcoming. The house is much larger than it looks and the back yard is a wonderful oasis. We used this house as our base while moving our daughter into the college there. I will definitely stay here again when we visit her.
