Welcome to Casita Solas nestled in a grove of pinon, cholla, and juniper woodlands with views across the mesa. Enjoy the tranquility and superlative light of the area- an artist and photographer's haven.
This studio style cottage provides modern amenities whilst being completely off the grid including: electricity, wood-fired stove, wifi, and hot and cold running water.
Casita Solas affords privacy with its own covered chillout/meditation area looking across to the Jemez mountains.

Just outside the Casita's french doors there is a small outdoor patio that catches the light -perfect for enjoying morning coffee or tea- You can observe the visiting migratory birds and hummingbirds in season and perhaps the resident hare- coyotes come near in the gloaming, as well.
The Casita is heated by a cozy wood-fired stove- welcomingly lit for your arrival when the temperatures are low.
The traditional-style open plan accommodation includes a sleeping area with king-size bed, sitting area with sofa and dining table, a kitchen area fitted out for cooking. and a fully appointed bathroom.

Please note that the road to our home is off the pavement and rough- whilst most vehicles can make it through, high clearance vehicles are recommended (see 'Access' below).

This includes a 3- burner stove, sink with hot and cold running water, refrigerator, toaster, and a selection of pots and pans including a 1.5 qt mini electric “Insta-pot’. There is a coffee grinder, French press cafetiere, stovetop ‘Moka espress’, and kettle.

o Coffee beans, a selection of organic teas, sugar, oil, sea salt and pepper, oatmeal and organic eggs are provided.

The bathroom comprises a large shower, sink with hot and cold running water and a flush toilet.

King size bed with feather duvet, ceiling fan. Linens are provided.

o Well-mannered pets are welcome. They must be leashed at all times whilst outdoors. All droppings must be picked up and disposed of.

The Land
We are situated on 30 acres of open land.
o A short hike up the marked trail from the meditation area will lead you to a nearby elevated lookout point with a sitting area that affords magical sunset and dawn ‘big sky’ mesa views.
o Hiking boots or thick soled shoes with protected toes are a must when walking the land. (There is an incredible array of ground-dwelling spined flora!) - we ask that you stay on trails and tread carefully as the desert ecology is fragile.
o In hot weather please be on lookout for snakes; keeping dogs on a 6- foot leash is necessary.

Casita Solas is a rural eco property located 1.6 miles off of pavement- an approximately 9 - minute drive from the main road.
This is a rough, rocky road-which changes seasonally, especially for the first 1/3 mile.
High clearance vehicles are recommended.
Most vehicles are able to get through if you drive slowly and navigate carefully
(Please be aware of this and take this into serious consideration when booking).
 Please respect the local community and keep to a low speed on smoother portions of the road!
In times of monsoon rain or heavy snowfall four-wheel drive may be necessary (it is advisable to check weather conditions before setting out).
 Casita Solas has its own parking area and circular driveway. Bags may be off-loaded at the casita’s front door.
 Firewood for the cozy wood-burning is stacked for your use on the rear patio for when the weather turns nippy.
 A portable Swamp-cooler is available for use during hot weather.
 We are a completely off grid eco-property. We compost and recycle. (bins are provided).
