About Cynthia Robinson

I have been in the Vacation Home Rental Business for over 15 years.

Why Cynthia Robinson chose New Mexico

This piece of property has been in my family for 50 years, with an old garage/barn and a bunk house that was used many years ago. I decided that it would be fun to have a new home put on it and turn it into a vacation home. Roswell is now getting thousands of visitors a year.

Just about everyone that has come and stayed has enjoyed, 'Roswell Roost'.

Couldn't have asked for better accommodations. We were visiting our grandson who is attending NMMI and he loved the place. Everything was perfect with a fully equipped kitchen, bathrooms and laundry room. Would recommend this house to all of my family and friends.

Understated from the exterior...lovely, comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

The initial impression when arriving at the gate is a little hesitant. The neighborhood is a bit intimidating until you realize the brilliance of the owners design. It is simple outside therefore does not attract attenrion. The yard is comfortable and large and the house is lovely and very comfortable. You immediately feel at home and the kitchen is very well stocked.

The living room furniture is comfortable, the master was the only bed we used, but it was very comfortable with quality linens. The bathrooms were well equipped and the filtered drinking water was a real plus.

We has two small dogs and the fenced yard was a real plus when taking them out.

Overall this is a wonderful rental and we do not have any second thought about recommending it to anyone traveling to Roswell.

A well thought out, realistically priced, family rental.

Again, Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Roswell Roost in the last 2 years and it was an absolute delight. We stayed 7 nights and loved every relaxing minute of it.

We're a family of five with boys 15, 12, and 8. Everyone was comfortable and had an excellent time. The kids love the Foosball table and the board games! The house itself is roomy, clean, and comfortable, the kitchen fully stocked with every dish, pot, pan, and cooking spice imaginable. The fridge had a full complement of condiments as well as a basket of eggs. Previous guests have left staples like flour, butter, and sugar in the freezer as well, and there were even tea bags for iced tea in the cabinet. All we had to do was pick up burgers and steaks for grilling on the patio and make sure to restock whatever we used up. The yard is neat and well kept with mature shade trees, patio chairs, a hammock, and a ready-to-cook gas grill. Watching the storms roll in from the west the front porch while enjoying burgers was like watching 4th of July fireworks over the plains. The area itself may be a bit old and worn, but we always felt safe and secure at all hours. The neighborhood is quiet and the streets clean, and shopping was just down the road. The Roost is a tidy little gem on the edge of town. Cynthia is easy to work with and has a Welcome Book with everything needed right on the counter when you walk in. We will definitely be back again!
