Casa del Sol is a guest casita on an artist's property, offering a unique get away vacation spot. A tranquil sanctuary to relax and rejuvenate! If you love star gazing, some of the darkest skies and the brightest stars are right outside your bedroom door. We are close to the VLA, and a short drive to Bosque Del Apache wildlife sanctuary.
Additionally, Casa del Sol is a great location for hiking, rock-hounding, or an artist's retreat.

Magdalena is one of the best-kept secrets not only in New Mexico, but in the West, and Gwen's casita is a great base to explore the town and the surrounding mountains and plains. The location is excellent - with the property opening on to expansive views - and the courtyard is a…
