Unfortunately we weren't able to stay for the full time because I had issues with asthma here. Possibly not the best location for those sensitive to dust and allergens, though that could have been just my experience.
The location was perfect! There was easy access to Old Town and restaurants within walking distance. Our hostess was great and had good recommendations on where to eat and what to do.
The guest house was really cool and we had a comfortable stay there. The decor was neat and it had a cozy atmosphere.
Lezle was able to fit us in on very short notice and was very warm and welcoming. The Casita was very cute and made a wonderful stop-over for us. I understand that Lezle is moving and will be setting up another Airbnb at her new location. I look forward to visiting her there.
Lezle was very welcoming, showed us the need-to-knows about the house and told us she'd be nearby if we needed anything. Also checked in with us part way through the stay to see how things were going, but otherwise gave plenty of privacy. The house is very cute, set back off the street a bit and has enough space for folks to hang out. We rented it for my parents when they came to town for my graduation and when they had to leave early due to a family emergency, she was very understanding. The only issue they had was trying to regulate shower temperature as it seems to be a bit tempermental, but otherwise it was a very cozy place for them to stay.
Lezle was a great communicator and flexible with our arrival time, which was super helpful. The place was just as advertised -- plenty of space for the two of us, comfortable temperatures thanks to the swamp cooler, beautiful art on the walls done by our airbnb host. The hot tub was definitely a highlight, too! We had some trouble getting the temperature adjusted properly on the shower, which resulted in some extra-short, colder- or hotter-than-desired showers, but it was manageable. I wish we had had more time to chat with Lezle -- hopefully we'll be back some time for a longer conversation!
This place is great! Super spacious, way bigger than we imagined and really comfortable. Hot tub is excellent. Lace is walking distance to museums and old town. Lezle is easy to reach and super helpful. We loved our stay at this place and it was a wonderful spot to spend our last evening. Highly recommend staying!
We ( couple with adult son) had a wonderful six night stay at this Adobe casita. Bakery, restaurant, supermarket and old town are all in walking distance. Lezle made us feel very welcome and checked regularly that we had everything we needed!

About the Host, Lezle
I am an artist from New Mexico. My interests are printmaking (mostly woodcuts and wood engravings) and remodeling houses. I mostly freelance and have a MA degree in non-toxic printmaking. My primary medium is woodcuts and I am also a book illustrator.
I love the open spaces, the mountains, and canyons of New Mexico - where one can live in a major city, but be in the wilderness within 1/2 hour. I can give you many tips of what to see and do.
I work part time for a wilderness expedition company: The Cottonwood Gulch Foundation.
My art studio website is currently being rebuilt, so is a bit barebones at the moment. It can be found under "Laughing Crow Studio" or Lezle Williams.
I have stayed at several airBNB homes both in the US and abroad. It is a great community and a great way to travel!
Thank you for your interest!
