"My husband and I and one other couple stayed in this beautiful house for five utterly, relaxing nights. As someone who stays in around 20 rental properties per year, I can say without hesitation that the Casita stands a cut above the rest. The house is well furnished with a fully stocked spice drawer and everything you need to make a good meal. After doing groceries in Espanola, we cooked and grilled out every night of our stay. The master room has one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in, including hotel quality sheets. I slept like a baby each night.
The views from the house are so gorgeous you feel as though you're sitting in the middle of an epic, Western movie set. I could have happily stayed there all summer. If you're looking for peace and quiet in one of the most relaxing places in the U.S., I highly recommend this property. We especially enjoyed getting in the hot tub and walking down to jump in the lake. During our stay, I was training for a half-marathon, and I was able to run on the roads surrounding the property without problem, not to mention that the views on my runs were spectacular!
There are a number of attractions within 30 minutes to an hour from the Casita that we really enjoyed visiting: the Echo Amphitheater, the Abiquiu Inn and O'Keeffe house, the Monastery of Christ in the Desert (beautiful drive to one of the most secluded monasteries in the U.S.), and of course, all of downtown Santa Fe.
Carol is extremely responsive and friendly. She and her husband obviously take pride in their listing and genuinely care that you had a good stay. I can't wait to book from them again. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!"
