Delightful Home and Host

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in Cozy Castia. Swimming in the salt water pool was a highlight for me. As was the beautiful and quiet outdoor space. The casita itself is very comfortable; comfy bed, great AC, plenty of good towels, and more.Steve, the host is super friendly and really cares that his guests have a good time.

Desert Delight

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay in the Cozy Casita. It was a beautiful and quiet setting. Close to El Paseo which fulfilled most of the shopping and dining needs we had. Steve and Karen were extremely helpful and considerate. We have no problem recommending this listing to anyone who might be interested.

Better even than what was hoped for

  • 5 of 5

Stay could not have better. Th Casita was comfortable, clean wonderfully decorated. The nice, big surprise was the use of the entire back yard, which included pool, whirlpool and multiple seating areas. It was also very nice to be staying in a neighborhood which afforded quiet relaxation when desired. Also, the location was ideal for us at it was convenient to El Paseo, The Rivers and many golf courses; as well as living desert. Hate to write such a positive revue as it will be less likely that we will be able to book again as it may already be booked.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cozy casita for one week and totally enjoyed it. It is quite private and quiet but still only a 20minute walk to El Paseo where there are scores of places to eat and shop.

Steve and Karen are excellent hosts and made our stay unforgettable.

The accommodations lacked nothing. Everything was great.
