Comments From Guests of Casita_de_Chuparosa

"I know I'm late on this comment as procrastination is part of myself. But, Marilyn and Jeff, thank you both again so much for the wonderful hospitality that you both displayed for us in August. The chuparosas/ hummingbirds were a great part of our enjoyment with our stay at the casita. And that rainbow we saw several different days at the end of the valley south of the casita was ssooo cool. How did God put that rainbow in the same place every time?!? The sunsets, well..... , WOW !!! And the sunsets had that 270 degreeness to them. BIG !!! Everything was so close to the casita, yet the peace and quiet of the place made it seem like we were out in the boonies. I got addicted to the bagels and jams and morning chats with the wonderful Marilyn. You're wonderful too Jeff, but your mom has more experience at it. :) My walks down through the arroyos were were so enjoyable. Just a chance to get away and be alone with the Creator. You guys are so blessed to live in such a beautiful place. When we got home we were considering not vacationing next year. But, after little thought about it, we'll probably schedule another stay at the wonderful Casita de Chuparosa. Thanks again, Chris and Kevin Goodson" - Chris n Kevin, Port Byron, IL, 10/02/11(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"Casita de Chuparosa is as beautiful as the pictures that are on the website! Fabulous views morning,noon and night...many nice touches such as organic breakfast supplies, lovely decorating, hot tub, personalized directions, wonderful hospitality-Jeff and Marilyn made it feel like our home away from home, and anticipated our every need!

You have certainly thought of everything to accommodate us and we have truly enjoyed it. Thanks too for your list of things to do and see, that was our "Bible" while we were here!

"10/18-10/25 Marilyn + Jeff- What a wonderful refuge this has been for us! One we we got used to the hum of the refrigerator , the squeak of the floors and the squeaky fence around the back sitting area, we settled in nicely. Our timing couldn't have been better for the extraordinary gold, yellow and orange of the cottonwoods shining in the glorious fall sunlight in the river valley below - until sub 20 weather struck one night and the gold vanished! The view across the valley is superb, especially the sunsets behind our favorite peak-Pedernal. The daily newspaper and weather report each morning was a welcome ritual for our coffee and tea in the sun. and the last couple nights having the wonderful fireplace roaring wand crackling as we drifted off to sleep was a first for us in all of our vacation travels! Your presence and attention was a support and comfort while giving us all the privacy we wanted. We wish you many years of pleasure and sharing this place with other if you choose to stay. You certainly provided a welcome retreat for us especially as I was under the weather for several days and needing to rest. Be well and thanks for everything.

"Mar 22-29, 2008 What a fantastic home! So inviting and comfortable. Beautifully decorated with wonderful, helpful books on the area, people , art, What to see and do. My favorite books were the "From Santa Fe to O'Keeffe Country" We used this book everyday. It really enriched our stay. We also enjoyed the larger books on Georgia O'Keeffe displayed in the bedroom. It gave us much more intimate view of the artist which we wouldn't have had otherwise. All the magazines on the bookshelf had insightful articles about Santa Fe & the area. Thank you for the post-it highlights. We enjoyed browsing through the books about green homes, adobe houses, they are full of informative ideas. And as we are from out of country and never had been here before, the book with all the city maps was very helpful for us to navigate around Santa Fe. I loved the heater in the bathroom, what a brilliant idea! So many teas in the cupboard, What a smorgasbord! So many kitchen utensils, machines, gizmos, plates and cups, better stocked than our own kitchen! I loved the metal water bottles, we used them everyday! (The red one was mine and the silver one Mark's) Satellite T.V., we don't have that, what a treat!. So many movies stocked. We loved "No country for old men" and the Georgia O'Keeffe documentary. Great additions and internet. Mark was able to keep track of his stocks and I wa sable to keep track of the digital photos I had taken this week. We made use of the free long distance, a nice addition and what a spectacular view! Front and back. It was amazing to wake up to such a beautiful landscape. I love the sun in the morning,in the kitchen area. It's a real good morning Hello, an energizing way to start the day! Thank you Jeff for all of your knowledge and tips on where to go, the people and the area. We really enjoyed our morning chats. Thank you Marilyn for providing us with so much food & beverages in the fridge upon arrival (especially the Easter Eggs, yum, yum!) and for replenishing anything whenever we ran out.

After all, Jeff, A knight in shining armor came riding into Bode's on his trusty Range Rover steed to rescue a damsel in great distress. Your desire to help in any and every way warmed our hearts. The Lasagne was delicious and such a gift. We loved feeding carrots to Shah Cherie and Valentine and watching birds and bunnies come to eat in the early morning as we watched the sunrise. There was a full moon one night that was amazing, it not only put us to sleep from the east side of the house, but awoke us on the west side the next morning. What a blessing! We were not here many hours before we were thinking when we might come again. You have done such a fine, beautiful and thoughtful job of gifting your guests with the Casitas charm. It will pull at our hearts to return again. God bless and Keep you, Joyce and David Dean" - Joyce and David Dean, San Antonio, TX., 10/28/07(HomeAwayConnect Guestbook Entry)

"Our family congregated in Abiquiu for a birthday celebration the first week of February. I honestly don't know which factor made this stay so memorable....was it the fabulous accommodations at Casita de Chuparosa (every detail was spectacular- comfortable beds, luxurious sheets, a wealth of informative magazines and books of the area, a stocked refrigerator for breakfast, DVD's of films shot in the area, thorough suggestions for places to hike....) Then of course the 360 degree vistas are breathtaking, the tranquil surroundings ensure rest and comfort. The hospitality of the owners is unparalleled. Jeff and Marilyn don't miss a trick- they deliberately attend to every individual’s needs, thus assuring that a stay at Casita de Chuparosa will be unforgettable.
