Steam Shower/Hot Tub-Fabulous Views! In/Out Fireplaces-Free Wood-350+ reviews!

Family-friendly vacation home with sauna and spa tub
Casita Ave Maria is everyone's favorite. She is a 900-square foot, OPEN designed casita that was created and built by the Clancys. Casita Ave Maria has over 400 positive reviews. NEW MEXICO SAFE CERTIFIED.

Casita Ave Maria showcases a radiused front wall that opens up the floor space and makes the large kiva fireplace a focal point. David Clancy sculpted the incredible kiva and colored it with the perfect hue to offset it on the adobe-colored plaster that adorns all the walls. Natural wood cabinets shaped and built by David, knotty pine doors and tongue and groove ceilings wrap their warmth around you as you sit in this spiritual space and gaze out the Southern windows at the canyon, the Southwestern windows at the valley below and amazing sun sets or the mountains from the Eastern patio. Our casita is private and you have the entire patio and hot tub for your use only.

The original design of this casita boasts a HUGE patio on the Southern side, a serpentine-paved patio edged with decorative block piers with lighting insets. The Southwestern side hosts a large patio which can be accessed out the bedroom door. A 6-person hot tub and grand, outdoor fireplace await your arrival on this side and you can sit in the hot tub and marvel at the valley and canyon views, watch the sun rise and set, or count the shooting stars at night.

Talavera-tile adorns the kitchen cupboards and kitchen island. Brick-paved flooring with RADIANT FLOOR HEATING warm every step you take in this precious space. All NEW, stainless steel appliances await your use. Large, stackable washer and dryer is in its own closet.

The bedroom area is in the OPEN area of the entire casita but tucked away in the SouthWest side of the open space. Air-conditioning added July 2022.

A door to the SouthWest patio is off of the bedroom area making quick visits to and from the hot tub or the outdoor fireplace delightfully easy!! Pets are welcome with a pet fee. $150.00 minimum for one pet for a maximum of a week. We strongly prefer only one pet--there is no fenced in yard. Please let us know the breed of your dog when booking.

Spirit-soothing STEAM shower is stunningly slate-tiled with a glass door that encloses you in what we call the ''Enchanted Cave'' shower. Steam and dream away!

Starting supplies of wood are supplied for your use in both the indoor and outdoor fireplaces, basic start-ups of some spices, laundry and dish soap and paper products are supplied for your pleasure. Exterior camera on driveway/parking area.

Dog/Pet Fee-$150 minimum pet fee for one dog up to one week.

Everyone loves Casita Ave Maria! You will, too!

Night Sky Incredible
This home is located such that you can see so many stars and the Milky Way while soaking away the days adventures in the hot tub. It has all the amenities of home with extras like a steam shower and indoor/outdoor fireplaces. This was our second time staying here and it was as great as we had remembered.

Perfect Getaway
The Casita Ave Maria was perfect for a getaway. The views are amazing from the patio, and soaking in the hot tub on a cold night while enjoying the stars can't be beat! We also enjoyed our morning coffee by the outdoor fire. The accommodations on the inside are good, with a comfortable bed, a well stocked kitchen, and an indoor fireplace. The hosts were great as well. We would definitely return to this property!

Amazing Experience
This is the perfect VRBO for your Northern New Mexico getaway. Every detail such as the provided robes to the delicious bottle of wine provided, to the feeders that brought some humming bird friends to hang out with made this the perfect stay for my partner and I. We especially enjoyed having a fire outside while soaking in the hot tub! We will be back soon! Scott from Denver
