Spend some time in a Casita on our 265-acre paradise overlooking the Gila Wilderness!

Our beautifully-appointed guesthouses feature a full kitchen with continental breakfast foods, outdoor bbq grill, seasonal fireplace (firewood supplied), separate bedroom and bathroom, porch, free wifi. You can totally unwind here so you are fully refreshed when you return to your “real” world! Wander along Bear Creek, hike some of our 7 miles of trails, and see the night sky as you've never seen it before!

The space
We are professional innkeepers, here to help you make the most of every day you are in Southwest New Mexico. After 22 years hosting guests at Casitas de Gila, we know all the secrets of our area and are here to share them with you. We know where to go for the best hikes, where to find the best rocks, where to find the best birds, and where to ride your mountain bike without traffic. And we’ll gladly supply maps to help you find your way.

The night sky is brilliant here! You can get a good look at the moon and stars using the spotting scope and star charts in your Casita.

Casitas de Gila Guesthouses has been offering visitors to the Silver City area a quiet and peaceful nature retreat since 1999. We have a total of 5 guesthouses, 4 with one bedroom and 1 with two bedrooms. Lots of information about the Casitas can be found on our website.

This listing is for one of our four 1-bedroom guesthouses. When you arrive here, you will find that your Casita refrigerator and pantry are stocked with continental breakfast foods. Each Casita has a full kitchen with dining area, living room with seasonal fireplace, separate bedroom and bath with tub/shower, porch, picnic table, and bbq grill (charcoal and starter supplied), and Wifi. Two of our 1-bedroom Casitas have 2 beds (a queen and a twin), and two have a single queen bed. Each of our 1-bedroom Casitas will accommodate 1 or 2 people. We will choose your casita based on availability -- but do tell us if you need 2 beds and we'll make sure you get them!

Our 1-bedroom casitas can accommodate up to 3 people, including children age 6 and over. Extra guest fees ($20 per extra guest over 2 per night) and local taxes (5%) are NOT included in the Airbnb rate and are paid upon arrival in cash.

Where you’ll be

Gila , New Mexico, United States

We're located 4 miles from the little village of Gila, on a county-maintained gravel (dirt) road. Regular cars are fine! Call us first if you're on a motorcycle to discuss. The road is accessible year-round.

We're only 30 miles from Silver City, on the western side of the Gila National Forest and Wilderness, making us a great base for exploring the entire area. Visit the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument, the Catwalk National Recreation Area, and Mogollon Ghost Town. Explore the galleries and museums in Silver City. Or spend your time right here, at your private Casita, where there is no road noise, no street lights, no traffic, and very few other people!

Our Casitas have full kitchens and bbq grills. We have restaurant-quality steak and chicken available for purchase (call ahead so it will defrost before your arrival). Tammy's Cafe in Cliff is open Thursday thru Saturday for lunch and dinner, and Sunday for lunch. They have great burgers and hand-cut fries!

Time really does fly by when you're following your passion and living out your dreams! Looking back over the years since 1987, we can see that while our venue and our vision changed several times, the focus and mission of our hosting businesses remains the same: To provide our guests with access and connection to Nature in as much comfort as possible. We are delighted to provide that to our guests at Casitas de Gila Guesthouses!
