About Sally Meisenhelder

I now live in in Cambodia most of the year. I love Las Cruces and want to share the area with people. I especially love it in the summer so rent to those escaping the cold. People love Las Cruces. Of my last 5 long term guest, 4 bought houses here.

I have a wonderful manager, Steven who lives a few blocks away and is available always. I can also be reached almost always via my skype phone number.

Sally Meisenhelder purchased this house in 2001

Why Sally Meisenhelder chose Las Cruces

This home is located close to NMSU and convenient to shopping areas in Las Cruces and only a few minutes from the most beautiful hiking spot in the county - Soledad Canyon.

What makes this house unique

The neighborhood is an oasis of calm and quiet. Doves, quail and an occasional road runner can be seen in the back.

It was Great!

  • 4 of 5

This VRBO was located conveniently close to the NMSU. The house is comfortable and roomy with close access to walking trails. The kitchen had ample dishes and cooking equipment. The caretaker was friendly and very helpful with any problems on the property. The WiFi connection was spotty and had to be rebooted often. But after the caretaker notified the WiFi service it improved. We stayed for 2 months and were very pleased with the price and value we received.

First Feather

  • 5 of 5

I really liked being able to take a walk nearby. I found first feather in the backyard and second feather on my morning desert walk. We loved watching the hummingbirds. It was comfortable and close to restaurants and easy to find. I occasionally heard the freeway. I wish the master had a kingsized bed. Otherwise it was great.
