About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

This stylish abode is a subtle blend of elegance and simplicity about a mile from the heart of historic Old Mesilla. The amenities are new and quite luxurious. The unique furnishings and original local art are soft-toned and eclectic. There are possibilities everywhere for imagination, comfort and harmony. Overlooking the quiet inner garden courtyard and pool, Sofia’s Suite is filled with warmth, light and sunny afternoons.

Whatever is happening during your stay in Las Cruces-Mesilla, coming home to relax or work will always be a pleasure. Enjoy the downstairs fitness room, the outdoor grill for a barbeque, the outdoor pool with lounge chairs for fresh air, and of course the simple ease of your own comfortable and gracious realm upstairs.

They say La Mesilla is the place where time stands still and it is true. Explore the historic neighborhoods, walk along the Rio Grande irrigation canals and imagine what it was like at this crossroads a century and more ago.

Las Cruces was the half-way point for travelers on the westward trek from San Antonio to San Diego, as well as southward bound from Santa Fe to Chihuahua. Today it is a lo-rise university town, home to 90,000 warm-hearted souls and surrounded by big southwestern skies and vistas. Nearby museums and art galleries, unusual shops and restaurants are wonderful and welcoming.

White Sands National Monument is less than an hour away, as are many other areas for hiking, exploring and relaxing. The Organ Mountains on the eastern edge of the city offer their grandeur to all, and reflect color and light distinctively throughout the day.

We welcome you to come stay for a few nights, weeks or months and invite you to enjoy this peaceful, stunning, small abode whenever and for whatever reason you come to Las Cruces.

About Mesilla Abodes

This photo was taken after lunch at Peppers Cafe at the Double Eagle on the Old Mesilla Plaza. From left to right we are: Teresa, on-site manager; Gail, owner; Yoly, housekeeping; and Amy, reservation and service manager. Gail's favorite part of traveling is getting to know what is special about a place and how life is lived there. There is a particular blend of old-world Mexican and the rural wild west here in Mesilla-Las Cruces that intrigues and informs....and keeps calling us back.

Mesilla Abodes purchased this condo in 2008

Why Mesilla Abodes chose New Mexico

Southwest New Mexico is a unique part of paradise. Las Cruces and Old Mesilla have a distinctive history in an uncommon environment. Here are desert and mountains, wide open vistas and sunny skies. The sunrise and sunset are equally beautiful and the air is clean and refreshing. We feel happy and at ease in this warm, friendly community. Mesilla Abodes is both convenient and quiet. Just on the border of Old Mesilla with Las Cruces, access is easy from I-10 and to all points in both towns. Also our beautifully landscaped complex has its own lovely atmosphere.

A Treasure Next to Old Mesilla

  • 5 of 5

Sonia's Suite is a wonderful surprise. Although located in a multi condo building we found Sonia's to be quiet and comfortable. Full of amenities: coffee and condiments, gourmet seasonings and a completely outfitted kitchen, fully outfitted bath, barbecue supplies, books, maps and guides down to sewing kit and actual sharp scissors; an instant home away from home. Within walking distance of old Mesilla, good restaurants and two fine wineries, Sonia's is as close to ideal as you can find.

A Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for my wife and I to stay during our visit to Las Cruces. There was obviously a lot of thought put in to providing all the things that made our stay a pleasant one including a clean and comfortable bed and bedding, a completely stocked kitchen, multiple coffee makers and coffee, and attention to little details that may not be present in other places you stay. You will know them when you see them. :-).

I would also like to acknowledge how the property manager, Teresa, went "above and beyond" in helping my wife retrieve her wallet, identifications, etc. from a previous stay in another state. She was awesome!

As a final note, though, I would say that seniors with certain physical limitations may find this place challenging. There are only steps to the second floor, a slippery surface in the bathtub/shower, no support bar there, and a living room chair that is very low and difficult to get out of. However, none of these prevents me from giving this place the rating I did.

Just choose wisely, grasshoppers!

Sofia's Suite is spectacular and beautifully furnished; close to Mesilla shops and restaurants, as well as the walk along the Rio Grande. The entire staff is so accommodating. If you don't stay here when in Las Cruces, you are missing out on an enchanted condo in the Land of Enchantment.

This unit is a very clean and comfortable place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 12 enjoyable days here and were very pleased with the overall quality. It was nice and quiet, even though we had a number of neighbors due to spring break at the same time. The kitchen was very nice and well equipped. Everything was in good working order and the bed was quite comfortable. The location was nice for us because we were very close to family and friends who live in the area. We would certainly like to stay there again but the challenge will be to fit in to the busy schedule because of it's popularity.

There is a particular blend of old-world Mexican and the rural wild west here in Southwest New Mexico that is both intriguing and informative. Las Cruces and Old Mesilla have a distinctive place in history in an uncommon environment. Here are pecan groves and the Rio Grande, vast desert and alluring mountains, wide open vistas and sunny skies. The sunrise and sunset are equally beautiful and the air is clean and refreshing in this warm, friendly community.
