I live in historic Old Mesilla, NM in an historic adobe home that my husband and I lovingly restored. We love where we live and hope to share that joy with others. We also love to travel, eat great food, and garden.
Every Superhost has their own style, but they've all reached key hospitality goals.

This casita exceeded our expectations. Melanie has put a lot of thought and care into ensuring her guests have an enjoyable experience. The house is fully stocked, from milk and cereal to a hair dryer. She even offered to loan us her sled when she found out we were heading toward White Sands National Monument. Everything was incredibly tidy and had a lot of the local charm we were looking for. I would recommend this casita to everyone visiting the area.
Melanie is an extraordinary host that truly anticipates needs and makes amazing accommodations. Since our last visit she replaced the bed with a comfortable queen. When we arrived we had fresh fruit, nuts (Mesilla is known for pecans), as well as a stocked pantry and refrigerator. Did I mention the wine. Melanie graciously invited us meet some of her fascinating friends over cocktails and wine. Her husband, Radwan, was equally hospitable.
We enjoyed the casita as we need to cook most of our meals. The kitchen is well appointed and efficient.
We would recommend this beautiful casita for anyone wanting to truly experience the phrase, "mi casa es su casa." We have enjoyed this casita for 23 days in the past two visits. However, you cannot visit the last two weeks next January as that is when we will return!
The casita was perfect in every way, beautiful! Wish I could have stayed longer - and just hung out inside to read the library of books. Stocked with more than you could ever need. Comfortable bed, great location. If ever back in Messila, would definitely stay here again. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
Melanie and Radwon were fabulous hosts that made me feel welcome and comfortable. The casita is everything that I needed for a business trip with a baby in tow, and I look forward to staying with them again. I love that they have espresso available, that the casita is an easy walk to many restaurants in Mesilla, and how quiet and lovely it is. My only regret is that my hectic schedule did not allow me to truly enjoy the casita and garden.
Our host, Melanie, was fabulous. She always responded to any request in less than 20 minutes, and she allowed us to checkin a bit early which better accommodated us.
Another lovely stay at Melanie and Radwans Casita! The new bed is wonderful. This will be our 'home away from home' until we make the move to Las Cruces. Couldn't ask for nicer hosts. We also appreciated (and enjoyed) the chilled bottle of wine waiting for us after a hectic day getting out of Chicago with a blizzard bearing down. Pet Pancho a few times for us. Thanks so much, Susan and Bill
We loved our stay in Mesilla at Melanie's lovely authentic casita. It more than met our expectations. She had excellent recommendations for food, recreation, and culture. Melanie and Radwan were instrumental in making our extended stay in Mesilla fantastic. We hope we can return some day.
Melanie and Radwan are a wonderful hosts. The location is just great. Mesilla is fantastic and Las Cruces is just a few minutes away. The casita is just great, a real home-away-from-home. Just perfect! We'll be back for our next trip to the area.
Melanie was a fantastic host! The casita was in a great location and the perfect size for two people. I really appreciated the attention to detail and the helpful information about the area. The house was extremely clean and the outdoor area very spacious. I would highly recommend this spot and I hope I can visit again in the future!
We had a wonderful stay at this super-comfortable, adorable, and very well-appointed casita. Melanie and her husband are awesome hosts. They provided us with a binder full of information about the area (they even gave us a heads-up about the weather). I absolutely recommend staying here if you're visiting the area!
Melanie was a fantastic guest! She was exceptionally clean, very communicative and I would definitely recommend her as a guest.
It was great having Melanie and Radwan here! We wish we had more time to talk with them about the area etc. Hope they can come back soon...
Melanie and her husband were a joy to host!
They are very kind, polite and considerate guests, we very much enjoyed getting to know them and having a wonderful conversation, which they did even if they were tired.
The room was left spotless and tidy, we would love to have them again in the future definitely recommend them to all Airbnb hosts they are a treat to have!
Melanie & her partner were lovely guests. Respectful & nice, good communicators. They kept me apprised of their arrival time & plans which helped me plan my work day & time to meet them. They cleaned up after themselves and left the kitchen tidy, even though I didn't expect it. It was both our 1st experience as host/guest, and it went really well!!
