A comfortable home setting for a female wishing to stay in El Paso for a few days of shopping, visiting or hanging out with old friends in the city, neighboring towns, or in Juarez, Mexico. Located near the airport and major shopping centers, this B & B is easy to get to and to travel all over the city, West Texas, and eastern New Mexico. Juarez, Mexico, The University of Texas at El Paso, and Downtown are only 10 minutes away. The B & B is located near I-10 and Montana Avenue, a major thoroughfare in El Paso.
The room has a comfortable trundle bed with a new pillow-top mattress, its own closet and dresser, and is right next to a shared bath room that has a shower and tub. A delicious healthy breakfast is provided daily along with freshly brewed, "French-pressed" coffee.
Want to shop? The B & B is located near two major shopping centers, Cielo Vista Mall and Bassett Place as well as Sam's Shopping Club and Costco. Wal-Mart, K-Mart and Target stores are a five to ten minute drive away.
Restaurants and local eateries are also only minutes from the bed and breakfast. From local fine dining restaurants to authentic, delicious Mexican food and ethnic restaurants featuring Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Middle Eastern food, as well as family style diners are easy to get to. Fast food restaurants like McDonald's, Arby's, Jack-in-the Box, What-A-Burger, Weinerschnizel, and Sonic drive-throughs are also within walking distance or a short drive away.
Sun Metro transit (local bus system) is only two blocks from the house. You can also get to a major transfer center which is about a five-ten minute walk. Since the house is close to the airport, car rentals and taxi and shuttle services are also close.
Prefer female guests. Keep your room tidy. Music and TV are available, but since this is a shared household, please consider volume limitations.
Stay here and you could give this host their first review!
I am a retired teacher/administrator for one of the largest school districts in El Paso. Although retired, I stay active in community affairs and will tutor/teach when I need to.
I also am a busy grandmother of four beautiful and active grandchildren. I help when I can at their schools.
I have two pets, an old Calico cat (17 years old) and a frisky 2 year old Jack Russell/Poodle who will love you and lick you if you want. The pets are well managed and the dog is kept outdoors most of the time. If you are allergic to cats, this isn't the place for you to stay. Belle stays indoors but does not get in your way!
I love to cook, read, watch my favorite shows on tv, hang out with friends and family, and teach ... whether it's writing, literature or grammar :) I'm a bit of a stickler when it comes to grammar, but all in all, I'm friendly and have a great sense of humor. I also like to listen to jazz, blues, salsa, rhythm and blues, and good old rock 'n roll.
Recent projects include sewing a Renaissance dress for one of my granddaughter's school projects. I also am a VIP and volunteer at the Scholastic Book Fair at my grandchildren's schools.
My home is small, but has a friendly atmosphere.
