A Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

When in NM we normally stay with family, however, for Thanksgiving there were too many of us to fit into Mom's limited space. Since we were there for five days we wanted someplace more homey than a hotel room that we could invite family to. When I checked the VRBO web site, to my surprise, Pauline and Gary's place came up and it was just 10 minutes from Mom's house. I was sure the closest we could get would be Santa Fe. When we saw the pictures and read the reviews we were charmed and I just held my breath while we checked on availability. The cottage was all that we hoped it would be and more. It was very clean and had everything you could possibly need for an extended stay. The "more" would be Pauline and Gary themselves. They have thought of everything to make

their guests welcome and comfortable and they are just the sweetest. We are still telling people about our stay at the cottage. We will definitely be back.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to New Mexico and my husband and I wanted to stay somewhere between Santa Fe and Taos. This quaint little cottage just looked perfect and the reviews were all great. The house was very clean and stocked with any kitchen utensil you would want. But the best part of all was meeting the owners, Aunt Pauline and Gary who were immediately like family. My husband and I are still telling our friends that this is the place to stay when in New Mexico and we loved it so much we stayed an extra night. The location was perfect for exploring between Santa Fe and Taos.

Special place for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in the guest house for most of a week. We were very happy with the home and with our hosts. We will plan to come and stay here again on our next NM vacation. One day-excursion we took was to the Pueblo ruins and Pauline graciously loaned not only a wide-brimmed hat but a long-sleeved white shirt to me. I so appreciated her help. This is a comfortable and cute guest house, with sweet hosts. Y'all come! :)

Not Signing the Blues in this Little Blue House

  • 5 of 5

Pauline is not just a rental homeowner; she is one of the best hostess I've ever met. If you need it-she has it. And she worries about you too (which I found comforting). We truly enjoyed the home. It's just what you want, clean, stocked, quite and comfortable. I know everyone who stays here will be as happy as we were.
