About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, sleeps 6 on pecan grove

This wonderful property is located on a working pecan orchard, surrounded by beautiful trees. This custom home was built in 2009 and is a perfect place for a family vacation or if you just need to get away and relax. The home has 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms and is 2,000 sq ft. The property has beautiful views of the Organ Mountains and wildlife. Just a bike ride or 3 minute drive from historic Old Mesilla. The address is 3755 Selene Ct. Las Cruces, New Mexico 88005. The property sits on a 5 acre pecan grove and is a very private setting with no traffic. The neighbors are all family/friends and are very nice. Guests could enjoy long walks along the irrigation canals where it is not uncommon to see squirrels, all kinds of birds, and horses. Enjoy all the benefits of having peace and quiet, but also the convenience of having Walmart, restaurants, and shopping within 3 miles. All 4 beds have new and comfy mattresses; king, queen, and 2 twin size beds. The home comes fully equipped with bedding, towels, washer/dryer, pots/pans, outside-grill. Also, included is high speed internet, Direct TV services, 3 flat-screen TVs ( one smart TV), 1 DVD player and 1 Blu-ray player (with an active Netflix account). We have had guests from all over the world and everybody loves the home, please read the reviews from past guests experiences as I believe they will be helpful. For example, this is a recent review from a guest;

It is a pleasure to write this review. We had the privilege of staying in this gorgeous home May 24 through 29 of 2016, and could not have asked for a more gracious host than Jorge. He did an excellent job of communicating with us prior to our visit, answering questions and making sure everything was ready for our arrival, plus he was just a phone call away with great suggestions during our stay. The house was everything it is purported to be and then some; it exceeded our expectations and was the perfect venue for our family reunion. It was absolutely beautiful, sparkling clean and very comfortable. This home is beautifully situated in a quiet neighborhood amidst a stunning pecan orchard. Although it dishes up a quiet country atmosphere it is just moments away from historic old town Mesilla and just a few miles from all that Las Cruces has to offer. Our family greatly appreciated this home’s spacious layout as it afforded us both the perfect space for family time as well as one-on-one conversations. We thoroughly enjoyed preparing meals in the amazing kitchen and eating in the dining room as well as out on the patio. We appreciated all the attention to details from a hair dryer and magnifying mirror in the master bath to the BBQ on the patio. We had a fabulous time. Not only did we relish living in this beautiful home, but we also thoroughly enjoyed some of what Las Cruces and Mesilla had to offer. Dinner at Andele’s Dog House and La Posta de Mesilla, lunch at St. Clair’s Bistro, walks around the neighborhood, coffee from The Bean, Farmer’s Market in both Mesilla and Las Cruces, a hike at the Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park, a drive around New Mexico State University, shopping in the Mesilla Plaza (You don’t want to miss the Chocolate Lady!), a visit to the Farm and Ranch Museum and even a trip to White Sands National Monument. We definitely ran out of time before we ran out of interesting things to do and see. Hailing from Montana, we were anxious to experience New Mexico. We absolutely fell in love with the area, its kind people, fascinating scenery and fun activities. This beautiful home was perfectly located for out-door activities as well as up-town activities, and offered up a magnificent view of the Organ Mountains. We highly recommend you stop looking any further for a great VRBO as you have certainly found a jewel in this property. Thank you again Jorge for everything!! Mike & Nancy, Montana

About Jorge Vazquez

Hello Future Guests,

I am a Las Cruces native and have been here for 28 years. I am married and have two young boys. My mom built the home next door 15 years ago and we decided to build our home in 2009. I graduated from New Mexico State University, I currently work at NMSU in the College of Business as an Adviser.

Jorge Vazquez purchased this house in 2009

Why Jorge Vazquez chose New Mexico

I LOVE THIS AREA!!! Because there are so many pecan trees nearby the temperature is a lot cooler than anywhere else in the city. We are in the Southwest desert however, the area where the home is located is very green.

Great December visit

  • 5 of 5

This property lived up to its great reviews! It was extremely clean and well-supplied with everything we needed for our 5-night stay. We even tried out the sleds in the garage at White Sands. The layout was very convenient for my family of four plus grandparents. It's a rural location -- on a dirt road -- that is very peaceful and convenient for exploring Las Cruces and beyond. We enjoyed many of our meals at home after shopping at the Toucan Market and Mountain View Coop. Thank you!

Warm & Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a 3 week stay at Jorge's beautiful home. It is set in a quiet part of town, only minutes from Old Mesilla, in a pecan orchard.

The morning doves were a beautiful alarm clock! Jorge has every detail covered. We have stayed at many VRBO properties & often find they do not have all the comforts of home. Not the case here; lots of pots & pans, utensils, a complete spice rack, all the basic condiments in the refrigerator, coffee & a beautifully decorated. We especially enjoyed having the bicycles!! We certainly plan a return visit!!

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

I'm almost hesitant to write a review for this listing because I really want it to be available next time I book. This is probably the best vacation rental experience I have had. The house is beautiful and clean, and the rural setting is everything I could have hoped for. The kids loved seeing the horses and sheep across the road. We also got to see the super moon rise of the Organ mountains, which was awesome. Jorge is great to work with and the house is much more well-provisioned than most properties. Our family will definitely be staying again. The sooner the better!

Country Living at it's finest

  • 5 of 5

Often times, when looking for someplace to stay while on vacation, you see a property on a web site that looks and describes itself as a gem of a place, only to find it was closer to a lump of coal. Country Living in the City is a gem! What you see online is exactly what you get and more. This is a beautiful home on the edge of Mesilla is nestled in a Pecan orchard. The master bedroom is large with a walk-in closet and bathroom with a Jacuzzi. A well appointed kitchen, large living area, washer/dryer, and patio with BBQ grill. Jorge is a most gracious host and our stay could not have been better. I highly recommend this property.

Peaceful get-away.

  • 5 of 5

A picture-perfect, peaceful stop on our road trip between northern AZ and east TX. The home was exceptionally clean, comfortable, and close to local sight-seeing. Thanks to Jorge for helping us feel right at home.
