We had a wonderful experience staying at this charming, southwestern style B&B. We arrived very late and Marlene has left the door unlocked with specific directions. We were so delighted to discover an amazing room. We had driven 9 hours and were able to catch Dave Letterman's final show sitting on a nice couch in the room and then we walked outside and took in the stunning dessert view at midnight. The bed was extremely comfortable. Marlene provided a very nice continental breakfast with fruit, granola, yogurt, bread and coffee. We spent a few hours in the morning just soaking up the charm of this place before reluctantly heading on our way. Highly recommended!
Casa de Suenos is a beautiful and unique hacienda style property in a stunning location. Everything was comfortable and clean and Marlene most welcoming. Thanks for all the local information Marlene - enjoyed our morning chats. Would not hesitate to recommend you.

Quiet, Pleasant, and Very Scenic. Our host was very helpful and the room was immaculately clean. It felt like we were in a Spaghetti Western in the middle of desert. Looking for desert solitude and a city moments away? Stay Here ; )
Marlene is a very nice host, makes my stay very enjoyable. I like the place, quiet and very well organized, the view from the backyard is just fabulous! Highly recommended place for everyone!
Marlene was such an amazing host! I felt right at home, my dog did too! Very clean, amazing view of El Paso, and very quiet. I would absolutely stay here again, and I appreciate how polite Marlene was and how she made me feel welcome. The breakfast I had was very yummy too! Highly recommend!!!
We had a great time. The home was beautiful and interestingly. It was very clean and comfortable. Marlene was friendly and very accommodating. This was a great place to stay. It is off the beaten path, yet only minutes from the interstate. Views are very nice, especially sunrise.
Marlene was the sweetest most informative host and the decor couldn't have been more tasteful and we felt at home immediately, it was a great location. We wanted to live there.

About the Host, Marlene
For the last 10 years, my husband and I have been running a Bed and Breakfast - Casa de Suenos, on the edge of open desert in a residential community in NM, but just outside El Paso TX.
I enjoy meeting people from all over the world and since I don't get to travel any more, I love hearing the stories from our guests.
I maintain the house and 3 acres our B & B is built on. That is a pretty full time job, but I enjoy making the grounds a true desert experience for our guests.
In terms of guests, we have had the most wonderful guests at our B & B. We are pretty laid back and live in a quiet residential area in the middle of the desert. We appreciate guests who like to connect with nature, are respectful of mother earth and appreciate the quiet of the desert.
