This art filled casita is located on a unique property an hour from Santa Fe, in Abiquiu New Mexico (known for its early American history and being home to famous artist Georgia O'keeffe). It is situated on a hillside overlooking the Chama River Valley. From here, guests will be able to enjoy the area's local wildlife, wide sunsets, and stargazing.

The inviting accommodation is a northern New Mexico-style pitched tin roof structure, which is tastefully and uniquely furnished with an eclectic, southwest farmhouse style—including high pitched ceilings and rustic, whitewashed pinewood floors. The casita forms part of the north wing of the host's larger main home, but it has two separate front and rear entrances, which are both private. The hosts keep a very low profile and are only around when guests need something.

The casita is well insulated for sound, privacy, warmth in the winter, and coolness in the summer. In the living room, guests will find comfortable, handmade Taos furniture and original, native local art and paintings. The living room opens up into the front courtyard's garden, where there is a picnic table to use for morning time. There are many different species of birds that visit the property daily year-round. The kitchen comes fully stocked with everything you would need, even a Vitamix blender and various ways to make coffee.

The property is very peaceful, and past guests have loved the solitude and sound of silence here. For those who will need access to "city necessities," the hosts provide the following: great cell phone reception; complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi; and free Netflix and other station on a Roku TV.

The sleeping arrangements include two bedrooms. There is a large master bedroom with a sitting area and a door to the outdoor covered sitting and sunset-viewing area. Guests will also find a large fireplace stocked with Pinon wood kindling. The high-quality queen-size bed has 600 thread count sheets, a fluffy down comforter, and lots of down pillows. In addition, the mattress is a fluffy, hypoallergenic feather bed. There is heating and air conditioning is the casita.

The second bedroom comes with a double bed and the same quality bedding as the aforementioned master bedroom. It also comes with a writing desk with great views, and a book library.

The full, private bathroom features a combination bathtub and shower, as well as organic soaps, shower gel, and lotions. The hosts provide fluffy towels and lots of extra bath provisions, in addition to a hairdryer.

Additional guests can sleep on the living room sofa; the back and side cushions may be removed to make it into a twin bed, with plenty of extra sheets, pillows, blankets, and comforters.

In the laundry area, guests will find a stacked washer and dryer, and organic, non-toxic laundry detergent is provided. There is also a HEPA stand-up vacuum, a broom, a mop, and organic cleaning products.

Outside, guests will find the fully fenced-in front and back courtyards, which are great for those traveling with children or dogs, in addition to a covered patio and deck. There are an outdoor dining table and chairs, as well as a charcoal barbecue (the first bag of charcoal is provided by the hosts) and an outdoor fireplace with plenty of Pinon wood to burn.

This lovely accommodation is located in Abiquiu (AH-bi-kyoo) in northern New Mexico, the heart of O'Keeffe Country, at the end of a long, paved 1,500-foot dirt road. Here, the high desert meets the Rocky Mountains, and guests will have incredible 360-degree sunset views, as well as views of the property's 15 acres of O'Keefe countryside. The casita accommodation has the best views of any property in the whole Abiquiu area, including views of the distant Cerro Pedernal mesa, which is a flat-topped mountain that Georgia O'Keeffe painted and loved, and it is silhouetted every evening during sunset.
