About Suzi Badrena

We came from Puerto Rico to Colorado in 1975 and Purchased what is now Esperanza Ranch, have raised and shown Paso Fino Horses for years, and are fine jewelers called Esperanza Jewelers. Our son, Billy, was raised here and resides in an adjoining ranch with his wife, Wendy and our 2 grandkids, Jesse and Nova.

Suzi Badrena purchased this cottage in 1979

Why Suzi Badrena chose Doubleheader

This land, that overlooks the city, but is completely private, is unique and a magical world of it's own. It is less than 15 minutes to the South Entrance of Red Rocks and everyone enjoys being so close to the concert venue.

There are 5 beautiful, distinctly different Open Space Parks from 2 to 8 miles away. La Casita is cozy in winter and convenient to both ski areas and Denver for year round adventures.

2 shopping centers are 2 miles away with King Soopers, Safeway, Natural Grocers, a nice variety of good restaurants, liquor stores, retail stores and a variety of services.

What makes this cottage unique

Our home is 100 years old and we have made it our own, but kept it's timeless feeling. We have brought a certain Caribbean character to both our home and 'La Casita'to combine with the mountain attitude that guests really enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We feel so connected to all the amazing groups of family and friends who come to experience the magic of "La Casita", and thank them all for the privilege of hosting them, and seeing how much fun everyone has here! Hope you all come back!

Wonderful little cabin in the woods with all the amenities of home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights to site-see the Denver area and attend a concert at Red Rocks, and this cottage was perfectly located for all of that while still giving us the privacy and "cabin in the woods" feel we wanted, as well as allowing us to bring our dog. High-speed internet, washer/dryer and a dishwasher, really provided standard comforts, yet Suzi gives you access to hike all over her mountainous, wooded property, which really is situated off the beaten path. I highly recommend La Casita for your get-away and hope you enjoy it as much as we did. And, if you are taking in a concert at Red Rocks, it's less than a 30 minute drive!

Home Away From Home in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to the area to see the Brit Floyd concert at Red Rocks. It was terrific! We looked for a place to stay that was reasonably close to the concert venue. We always try to find places off the beaten path and away from tourist areas and noise. Suzi's cabin in the woods was a quick drive to the concert but felt like coming home to our own cabin in the woods afterward. It was quiet and the surrounding pine trees and boulders are beautiful. We saw two mule-eared deer right out front one morning. It is also close to Stauton State Park where we hiked 30 miles of well maintained trails to beautiful overlooks and a gorgeous waterfall. We spent a day sightseeing, driving to Breckenridge for lunch then coming back over Boreas Pass then took a drive Suzi suggested through Elk Creek Rd. to see an amazing canyon and mountain stream with historic old log cabins built into the canyon walls. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Suzi could not have been more pleasant. Thank you Suzi for welcoming us into your secluded part of the mountains and sharing your hide away cabin with us.

Serene, Cozy, Peaceful, Convenient

  • 5 of 5


Many thanks for your hospitality and going out of your way to make a special Christmas for us. The special touches like decorating an outside tree with Christmas decorations were deeply appreciated. Our stay at Esperanza exceeded our expectations. The house was cozy and the view was very serene. So glad it snowed right after we arrived to give us a white Christmas, it made our trip. Coming in after dark and seeing two huge deer next to the house was the highlight of our stay. Being familiar with the area as long-time (former) property owners, the location couldn't have been better, without the noise of the city but great access to everything.

We found our new home-away-from-home and will be back!!!

Kind Regards,

Tommie & Dawn Burks

We loved the property. This is one of the nicest places we have booked through VRBO. It is peaceful and private, but convenient to so many places--Red Rocks, Aspen Park, Evergreen, Morrison, Denver, Golden, Boulder. Highly recommend. We will definitely stay here again, longer next time.
