We absolutely loved our stay at the Casita. The location is so relaxing, with stunning views (pictures don't do it justice), yet it is close to both Albuquerque and Santa Fe. We never ran out of things to do, in fact we wished we could stay longer! The casita is furnished beautifully in true New Mexican fashion. The beds and couch are super comfy! Best of all Jake and his wife were extremely kind hosts, with instant communication whenever we had a question. They have great recommendations for day trips, restaurants, etc. I highly recommend staying here- you will be glad you did!

The house was very clean and had everything we would ever need. Made our visit to the Balloon Fiesta all the more enjoyable. Traveling to the surrounding area was a breeze from this location as well - about 25 minutes to downtown Albuquerque. Communicating and arranging our stay was very easy. We would easily stay here again in the future.

What a view! Jakes place was deep in the curvy mountains and perfect for our weekend getaway. We would def go back! Such a cute little guest house with an awesome loft for extra space, especially for kids!

Staying here was like staying at a good friends home. Better than the pictures. The place was homey and relaxing. The five of us were very comfortable, even on a day when snow had us shut inside. The scenery is amazing with a great view out the back picture window. Jake is amazing. He treated us like family and you can tell he truly enjoys extending genuine hospitality. If I'm ever back in the Placitas area this will without a doubt be my first choice of places to stay.

Jake User ProfileJake is a superhost.

I am happily married for 40 years, am a professional auctioneer for 32 years and love nature and the outdoors, as well as traveling and exploring beautiful places. I have been a serious student of the Bible for 40 years as well, and have seen the fulfillment of Bible prophecy in my lifetime, leading me to the conclusion that soon God will end all wickedness and restore paradise conditions worldwide. We try to live the golden rule, and like to associate with people who do the same.
