This is a wonderful B&B. Very clean, quiet and comfortable. Well worth the short drive on a dirt road. Marlene was very helpful with information.
Marlene was a wonderful hostess. She pointed us in the right direction for dinner and provided us with some insight into the surrounding countryside. In the morning, she made eggs with salsa verde and set out a beautiful fruit plate.
Because it's off the beaten path, there is no light pollution, so the stars come out brilliantly at night. From the patio, you can see the point where Texas, New Mexico, and Mexico meet. It is secluded and quite peaceful.
The room we stayed in was very comfortable for three people.
The next time I'm passing through El Paso, I will definitely be back.
This is a great out-of-the-way place with a fantastic view. Our room was beautifully furnished with lots of great details. Marlene was an excellent host, we had a great time chatting with her over breakfast. Highly recommended!
Marlene offers a wonderful place to stay while visiting El Paso. Everything is excellent, including the dog "Peanut". The location is really good if you want close enough access to the city for visiting but still want a place to be able to walk in the desert--it offers the best of both worlds. It's very quiet, as well. Great place! Great host!
Casa de Suenos is lovely! All of the amenities of a hotel with the uniqueness B&bers love! Very "southwest," off the beaten track without being inconvenient and something yummy and homemade for breakfast (out of this world banana bread)! We wish we could have stayed longer and are grateful for the dog-friendly and people-friendly stay! Thanks, Marlene!
Great property. Lots of space and privacy and hostess was very helpful.
Die Zufahrt durch die Wüste zu diesem wunderbaren, liebevollen Anwesen, hat allein schon die Vorstellungen von New Mexico erfüllt. Marlene ist ein zupackender fröhlicher Mensch, mit dem man viel Spaß haben kann.
Man möchte gern stundenlang nur auf der Terrasse sitzen und die Ruhe und Landschaft genießen. Schade, dass wir nur eine Nacht dort waren.
Marlene allein ist schon ein Grund, wieder eine USA-Reise zu starten.
My very first AirBNB experience could not have been any more pleasant. Marlene's house is as warm and inviting as she is. After a long day on the road, her beautiful, quiet, relaxing home was everything I needed and more than I hoped for. Thank you.
Casa de Suenos was a peaceful oasis. I was in the El Paso area for work, so it was great to rest at this location with an amazing view. Marlene was very sweet and accommodating. I look forward to staying there again.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
