Guestbook comments from the owner

We certainly enjoyed our stay in your cozy casita. The setting is so beautiful, we were reluctant to go out and sightsee. We did go out and see some terrific things but this casita made coming home in the evening a joy. Thank you so much -

Relax Away From the Crowds

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at the Casita. It was even better than the first. Words can't describe the views, and most of all, the quiet, peaceful surroundings.

Everything you need is there, so you don't even have to leave, but you are close enough to everything to easily get to any of the area's attractions. Or just sit back and experience nature.

See the nightime sky as it really is. If you want a place to relax, where you can experience what it is like to hear only the noise of nature instead of the noise of the city, I can think of no better place than thiis.

Thanks again Ken and Lleta for providing such a wonderful place to visit.

Owner's Response: We always enjoy your visit. We love seeing you enjoying yourselves so much. The Casita is peaceful and serene and many of our guests spend a lot of time in the Casita just relaxing. The night skies are really black making it so easy to see so many of the nightviews. The Milky Way is often very visable. We look forward to seeing you again.

Splendid Time!

  • 5 of 5

This casita is extremely comfortable and the best stocked rental we have ever stayed in! Lleta and Ken were very helpful especially since we were arriving late at night. Ken was very helpful and sent photos to me of where the keys and flashlight were located as well as the approach to the casita. The kitchen was well-equipped with coffee, milk, snacks, fruit, and breakfast. There was a variety of blankets and pillows to choose from for comfort. The home was also well stocked with information for the area which included books, and flyers from various attractions. Beautifully decorated with Santa Fe style--a delight to explore each day! A great place to stay out of town, yet close enough to the highway for easy access to downtown. A lovely area for morning/evening walks. We enjoyed our breakfast on the side veranda each morning. For an extra delight, the greenhouse is an added treat!

Fantastic Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and a great stay at Ken and Lleta's place. It had great views and was away from the hustle and bustle of Santa Fe, but not so much that it was inconvenient. Ken and Lleta are really great hosts and will help you figure out where to go and what to do on your visit if you need help. We would definitely stay there again.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This was my fourth stay at the Casita and, as always, it was delightful. The owners attend to every detail, including luscious bathrobes for their guests use and snacks and fresh fruit in the kitchen.

I have one more visit booked, and expect to book more.
