Charming separate living quarters, sharing a vine covered patio with a 90-year-old adobe home situated on scenic Highway 28. Located about 15 minutes south of Las Cruces, this quiet country getaway beckons you to stay awhile. Setting is rural.
“Candid and Lyndon are wonderful hosts/wonderful people. Their casita was not only stylish, but also extremely clean and tidy. They offer great suggestions for local restaurants, etc. as well as all of the essential necessities one would need (coffee, tea, cups, plates, etc.) I recommend this stay to anyone.”

“Overall: I didn’t spend tons of time inside but the first & lasting impression was exactly the same as when I saw the listing and after viewing the YouTube video. If you’re looking to experience “off-the-grid” this spot was perfect. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family. Cleanliness: I greatly appreciated the cleanliness of the Earthship. Many other unique Airbnbs that allow animals do a horrible job keeping their property clean for all guests, the group kept the Earthship very clean and no animal hair was on the bed or places that I could see. For someone that is unfortunately allergic to animal hair, the cleanliness of the property was my biggest concern going in. Temperature: One thing I was expecting was feeling warm, inside the greenhouse once you open the main door. It was around 40° outside and inside it was very warm I’d say 75°. It felt very nice. Bathroom: As long as you watch the video provided nothing should surprise you. The smell described in the video coming from the toilet isn’t a gross smell. I thought it might smell like fertilizer but it just smelt like some dirt. I wish there was a different shower head with hotter water but that’s jut nitpicking. The water pressure overall was a surprise since being in an Earthship I thought it wouldn’t be that great but it was way better than many hotels. Local Tips: Nothing for this Airbnb but I thought I’d let reviewers know since I assume many will try to travel there, but if you plan to travel to Manby Hot Springs you must have a 4WD vehicle. I used Waze & had a Dodge Ram 4x4 in Feb and it would have been impossible to get there otherwise if you use Waze & a 2WD. Also make sure you have hiking boots in case there is mud and snow/ice since with those conditions, the hike isn’t “easy” as some blogs say. You’re on the side of a cliff the entire time.”

“Staying in the shipping container was just what we needed. The view was incredible and every night the sunset was beautiful over the mountains. The place is perfect for two people and had everything we needed. We were able to hike, swim and lounge in a very comfortable setting. I will be stopping by again and loved how kind both Yanick and Tim are. Thank you for such a lovely stay!”
