Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay in Las Cruces. A great place to get away from all the snow at home. We appreciated all the little "extras" that the owners provided - especially the wine and 1st nights snacks. Great house!

Very nice house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Jo Ann's 3BR 2.5BA home is in an upscale community on the NE side of town. This is our second long stay here and probably won't be the last. Within a mile of the entrance to 'Los Pueblos' is a large Walmart, a Walgreen's, two gas stations, a gym and most importantly (to us) is the Sonoma Ranch Golf Course; a challenging, well-maintained test of golf that is open to the public. Adjoining the Pro Shop is the Sunset Grille which offers breakfast and lunch to golfers and non-golfers alike. The food there is some of the best around town.

As was the case on our first visit, owner Jo Ann has been attentive to our every need. Direct TV has more stations available than you can watch. We used the grill our back at least four times a week. Jo Ann had some sod added to the back yard and now we have bunnies! Two or more cottontails are considered to be a 'herd'. It's OK to feed them carrots.

Three mornings a week we walk through the neighborhood then out to the end of Northrise Blvd. a walk across flat land that takes 45 minutes. Los Pueblos has a community pool.

Medical facilities of all kinds are located within five minutes as well as multiple eateries.

We enjoy evenings on the patio with a partial view of the Organ Mountains, a spectacular mini-range of impressive mountains. It's easy to see why the area was named 'Las Cruces'.

Come to Jo Ann's house and have a relaxed visit with no worries.

Very nice family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We immensely enjoyed our stay at this property during our Thanksgiving visit with family. It was perfect to have our own "home" to go back to after all of the fun family outings during the week. We especially appreciated how well stocked this vrbo was - very well supplied pantry and laundry room, nice amenities, comfortable lounging areas both inside and out. Thank you for making our vacation so easy!

Wonderful summer home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely house for 6 weeks with our 3 toddlers. She and the house was very prepared for the demands of the little kids, helped us baby-proof the house so that we were safe and comfortable during our stay. The house was impeccable and very well-equipped for a happy stay, and we had a lovely time.

We also enjoyed a lot of the family fun Las Cruces had to offer - going to many of the parks near by, the library, the farmer's market, the White Sands monument, the Organ Mountains... We hope to be back again!

Amazing house with mountain views!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely perfect. My host, Joanne, filled the refrigerator with lots of specific treats for us prior to arrival. The home is beautifully decorated, extremely clean, with extra pillows and blankets in every closet. The TV and Wi-Fi were over-the-top, with lots of extra channels Super high-speed internet. Every evening, my family and I, enjoyed the evenings on the outdoor living back patio. The patio is private, and has an amazing view of the Organ Mountains. My young daughter, loved seeing the bunnies, the Road runners, and all of the birds, visit the yard every morning. In the evenings, after the rain, we got to see a few frogs as well. Overall, the house had everything we could possibly have wanted. We will be going back there again every year. Thank you so much Joanne!!

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was so much like home! We felt comfortable and at home immediately. Our Stay in Las Cruces was for 1 week while our youngest son played baseball in the Las Cruces Global World Series. The pool was nice after hot days at the ball park. The view is fabulous. We stayed over the July 4th holiday. We could see fireworks in multiple directions. Joanne is a master at making you feel welcome and wanted, leaving us goodies that more than came in handy!! Thank you Joanne, with everything you have going on that made it even more special.

Wonderful, view of the Organ Mts. Easy access to shopping, dining, tourist attractions.

  • 5 of 5

My visit to Las Cruces was for my Father's Memorial service. JoAnn met me late on a Saturday night after my being on the road over 12 hours that day. I have stayed at VRBO before but not in such a quiet neighborhood! The home is very well equipped with everything you need to be comfortable. I would most definitely stay at this home again. Working with JoAnn was a pleasure. She made everything so simple and was very helpful. This property is very upscale, immaculately kept, beautifully decorated. You will definitely enjoy your stay here!
