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!

What can I say our time here in the home and in Las Cruces has been incredible! The hospitality from the moment we walked in the house was overwhelming! Cereal, milk, juice, pastries, chips, toiletries! We got in late and I didn't have to rush to the store and pickup breakfast for my 6 and 7 year old! Jo Ann You have outdone yourself! I left wanting to pay it forward to someone else! Thank you and we will definitely be coming back to visit!

It has everything! Joann is such a wonderful hostess. Great views, and so convenient. Would stay there another winter if we hadn't bought a 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!
