  • Peaceful and Relaxing

    "Our second visit to Shining Sun Casita was as wonderful as our first, last November. Just as advertised, all the amenities are taken care of - bedroom with a comfortable queen bed and dressers/chests to unpack you luggage, a large closet to store extra items, cozy bathroom with a wonderful shower, and a kitchen stocked with all the basic equipment for a home-cooked meal. As it was just the two of us, we had no need for the linens provided for the living room futon-sofa, but we both felt it was comfortable the night we opened it up to lounge while watching a movie. Although we spent most of our time hiking and sightseeing in and around Santa Fe, the TV with DirecTV service was enjoyable when we wanted to laze away a few hours in the evening. There was no need for the wood stove to heat the casita in May, but firewood was provided in case things turned cool. The great cottonwood tree just outside the casita provided cooling shade for porch sitting. And our dog loved all the smells and sounds of the barnyard just beyond the casita. All in all, this is a fantastic place to make your home base while exploring Santa Fe, Los Alamos, Bandelier National Monument, the Sangre de Cristos Mountains, Santa Fe National Forest, and points beyond. On this visit, we took in all of the above, as well as Fort Union National Monument. There is no shortage of great places to eat, but be prepared to drive to get there. And if you like to try your luck, there are numerous tribe-operated casinos nearby."

  • Perfect for our trip!

    "Wonderful cottage! Centrally located to all of our destinations - Abiqui, Taos, Chimaya, Santa Fe, etc. The 2 bedrooms were very comfortable and the kitchen was well supplied (which was excellent since we liked to fix meals after a day's adventure). One could tell that extra effort was used in decorating to make it feel homey. Very clean and well maintained. Even a garage port. "Aunt Pauline" was helpful. Felt like we were visiting family. Can't wait to return."

  • Awesome Place!!

    "La Casita is a fabulous place to stay - you will find none better! We are just ending our week's stay and I don't want to leave!! The house is well furnished, clean, comfortable and peaceful and the surrounding grounds and garden are beautiful. The owner/proprietor, Sarita, has thought of everything to make her guests' stay perfect. She is very cordial and accommodating and is nearby if needed. I am already looking forward to our return stay - would not want to stay anywhere else!"
