About Azaima Anderson

I grew up in Chicago, went to school on the East Coast, and did corporate work in big cities until I discovered the country. Moved to Maine and changed my focus to music and healing work.

I'm interested in helping people get out of their own way so they can make the difference they want to see in themselves and the world.

I've released four CDs. Three of them have original songs. My songwriting is lyric-driven, and the music serves the lyric rather than being restricted to a particular style. Some are folk, others pop, jazz, rock and blues.

Most recently, I've composed a CD of meditative prosperity chants in the Sufi tradition.

My healing work includes astrology, yoga, shamanic work, and a technique I created called Heart Lightning, which quickly removes mental and emotional blocks in as little as one session.

I'm an interfaith minister, and have married people on this property.

I live with a couple of dogs who entertain me so completely that I don't watch TV. (But guest rooms have a TV).

Azaima Anderson purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Azaima Anderson chose New Mexico

Although I loved the beauty and the people of Maine, the climate was nasty. Anyone who can survive winter there deserves a medal. I moved here for the temperate weather and discovered I'd found my tribe. The artists and healers here are creative and nurturing. Once I moved here, I fell in love with the land, the cactus flowers, the rolling hills, and the sun.

The neighbors have ponies and peacocks who have visited occasionally. Apaches used to live on this land, and I have found some of their trading stones on the ground.

I love the proximity to town and country, and the great views.

What makes this apartment unique

The man who sold us our house was a naturalist. He took us on a walk and pointed out wildlife footprints along the trails. There are mountain views from every window.

You can hike straight out of the house for hours and never see a soul. But the neighbors are friendly if you do happen to run into them.

The long driveway goes uphill, so you have great views by the time you get to the house.

The flag-lined front porch is a great place to hang out, have a meal and enjoy nature.

Cool Place

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, secluded, convenient, everything you need. Watching the sunset from the hot tub after a day of hiking was supreme. Four-day weekend was barely enough time to enjoy Azaima's place and the area.

It is quiet if your looking to get away from the big city.

  • 4 of 5

My only complaint is that there is no a/c and even though it cools down at night it was still a little warm for me.

Everything else was great.

3 days in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were in hog heaven at Ms. Anderson's property in Silver City, NM. We were very comfortable in our large cottage space. She was very pleasant and made every effort to help direct us to places we wanted to visit. She was well versed in the goings-on in the area. The small town of Silver City is in a very picturesque setting in the mountains of western New Mexico, giving us daily opportunities for excursions such as the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Park as well as the Historic Downtown which is filled with great spots to eat and shops to discover unique items to take home. We also were very pleased with the museums in the area...and we loved the clean, fresh AND cool mountain breezes. We are still pumped up as we remember the many birds we were able to observe from her front porch swing as we sipped wonderful fruit drinks which she had concocted. Azaima even took us on a hike of the Continental Divide which was close by her property. We wish we could go visit often but we live in south Texas and it is a loooooong drive for us. But, we will definitely make it back again at some point!!!

This was such an amazing experience for us!! The room was just as clean as any hotel and we had enough privacy as we needed. Azaima was a great host and recommended certain trails to hike and restaurants to try. She also recommended we visit a wolf sanctuary which was the highlight of our trip. The hot tub outside the room was a nice way to end the night and we had a big bathroom between the two of us which we appreciated. The house is only a couple miles from the main town so it was a quick drive to get to where we needed to go. We slept well on the memory foam mattress and there was no need for air conditioner the entire time we were there. I would highly recommend this place over a hotel. She makes great complimentary drinks and is very welcoming with conversation. I cannot say enough good things!

A FANTASTIC Alternative to a Boring Hotel

  • 5 of 5

Azaima is a wonderful host. She's there if you need her but gives you space to make your experience in her home what you want. She gives really good recommendations of things to do or places to eat around the area. The house is gorgeous! It has the most relaxing authentic native New Mexican/Southwestern style. There's very special touches of local art/culture sprinkled all through the home that are just so refreshing. You keep the doors that link your area of the house to her area closed. Your area includes a kitchenette which has all the essentials you need to cook a meal, a dining room that has a beautiful view through the large windows on two sides, a large bathroom and large bedroom. It was perfect for two people. The house is very remote on the hillside, you can see all the surrounding mountains from the property. It's very pretty. I would highly recommend to anyone to stay here. Especially if you're looking for more outdoorsy activities to do during your stay. It was a wonderful experience!

The Gila cliff dwellings are the main attraction, a spectacular drive away. On the same drive, you can check out the Gila hot springs and the Gila River that still runs wild here, despite efforts to divert it. The City of Rocks state park has some beautiful and unique formations. The Silver City museum will give you an idea of the town's history, in which Billy the Kid figures prominently.
