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 Colorado

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!

Heavenly Cottage in the Woods!!

  • 5 of 5

6.11.17 - 6.13.17 We were beyond pleased with our stay at Suzi & Billy's cozy little cottage!! It was very clean, private and sits on a piece of land that is just spectacular!! We enjoyed walking the grounds, relaxing and cooking... the amenities left us needing for nothing!!

We went to Colorado for the Chicago & Doobie Brothers concert at Red Rocks and we were blessed to find this gem of a place that is just a short & beautiful drive to Red Rocks!!! We will definitely return for another visit!!! Thank you Suzi & Billy ~ Hope to see you both again soon!!

Peaceful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at La Casita for 2 months. The cottage had all of the things I needed--an oven, a toaster, a coffee maker, a washer and dryer, baseboard heat, hot water, a dishwasher, a nice shower, and comfortable beds. The kitchen is also stocked all the pots and pans you'd need to cook. There is also plenty of dishes and silverware. The house also has DirectTV cable and internet that are included. Suzi and Billy, the owners, were incredibly accommodating to my needs. When the hot water heater had gone out, Billy came and fixed it right away. They even inquired about what time I needed to be out of the driveway during snowy mornings because they provide full plow service of the driveway and road leading to the Ranch. The owners of this property are awesome, super laid back, and respectful of tenants privacy. The property itself has tons of opportunity for nature walks, and there is also a large old barn and other neat classic structures on the property.

During the afternoons, and mornings, views are incredible. There is essentially a panoramic view from the driveway, and the porch of the cottage faces West, so there is a lot of sunset viewing possibility. Whether you are going to stay for a few days, or a few months, this property is amazing and well worth it. There is incredibly easy access off of Highway 285. I found it took me approximately 10 to 15 minutes from the junction of 470 and 285 which is not too bad. If you keep going South down 285, there are plenty of stores 3 more minutes South to suit your shopping needs.

I would gladly stay here again, although it was more of a temporary vacation type spot for me. The owners would be happy to answer any questions you have about the area or the rental.
