About Suzi Badrena

We came from Puerto Rico to Colorado in 1975 and Purchased what is now Esperanza Ranch, have raised and shown Paso Fino Horses for years, and are fine jewelers called Esperanza Jewelers. Our son, Billy, was raised here and resides in an adjoining ranch with his wife, Wendy and our 2 grandkids, Jesse and Nova.

Suzi Badrena purchased this cottage in 1979

Why Suzi Badrena chose Doubleheader

This land, that overlooks the city, but is completely private, is unique and a magical world of it's own. It is less than 15 minutes to the South Entrance of Red Rocks and everyone enjoys being so close to the concert venue.

There are 5 beautiful, distinctly different Open Space Parks from 2 to 8 miles away. La Casita is cozy in winter and convenient to both ski areas and Denver for year round adventures.

2 shopping centers are 2 miles away with King Soopers, Safeway, Natural Grocers, a nice variety of good restaurants, liquor stores, retail stores and a variety of services.

What makes this cottage unique

Our home is 100 years old and we have made it our own, but kept it's timeless feeling. We have brought a certain Caribbean character to both our home and 'La Casita'to combine with the mountain attitude that guests really enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We feel so connected to all the amazing groups of family and friends who come to experience the magic of "La Casita", and thank them all for the privilege of hosting them, and seeing how much fun everyone has here! Hope you all come back!

Secluded Mountain Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage didn't disappoint! It was immaculately clean, had two comfortable beds, and a hot shower with plenty of water pressure. I recommend this for people who are in the area for hiking or other recreation, or to see a show at Red Rocks.

Vacation getaway to attend our daughters nearby wedding and reception

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank the Bedrena's again for our restful stay on the mountaintop location. The la casita cottage was extremely comfortable and in close proximity to our daughters wedding and reception at the Beaver Event Center near Conifer, CO. We very much enjoyed the walks in the woods and were delighted to watch the 2 deer and 4 foxes walk near us during our 4 day stay. Thanks and we hope to see you again next summer.

The property and cabin were well kept and landscaped.

  • 5 of 5

La Casita was the perfect place for our stay in Colorado. The cabin was quite clean and very comfortable. The Badrenas were the perfect hosts and told us about places to see and restaurants to try. Our dog Luna was excited to see deer and foxes in the backyard. We wholeheartedly recommend La Casita to anyone who is visiting this area of Colorado.

Thank you.

We really enjoyed being in the natural setting of the cottage relaxing outside, hiking, wildlife..

  • 4 of 5

The cottage setting is midway up the mountain so it is surrounded by big rocks to climb on, trees and wildlife. Its very relaxing and inviting place to sit and relax or take a hike.. To see a mountain view we had to hike around the property which was fun. Suzie and her husband were very friendly and hospitable. The cottage is comfortable and simple. Awesome artwork!
