Casa Encantada
Get ready for an experience. Beautifully decorated with magical touches of artistic flair everywhere, prepare to be enchanted!
Casa Encantada is located in the sleepy village of Magdalena, gateway to the stars. Deep black night skies show the star’s infinite glow. Close to the VLA, Bosque Del Apache, and so much BLM land for hiking and exploring New Mexico’s hidden beauty, you will want to stay for more than a day to see it all!
Note: Two, happy lovable dogs live on the property.

The space
Thank you for considering Casa Encantada.
You will feel the special energy of the house welcoming you with New Mexico's flair for genuine warmth and hospitality. A warm, inviting dining area, large open kitchen, beautiful great room; all designed for a relaxing, rejuvenating stay.
Front courtyard
Relax outdoors in the private front courtyard. Mornings are especially magic! A large gas grill is available to enjoy outdoor grilling. There is a charming outdoor dining area; and an area to cozy up and enjoy the warmth and ambiance of the chiminea.
Casa Encantada guests are welcome in the back yard as well, but
please note: the back yard is a shared space with the guest house, "Casa Del Sol," and the houseboat, "Wind Faerie," which is a restoration project I am working on. (Occasionally it is temporary living quarters for Charlee, Buddha, and me, if Casa Encantada and Casa Del Sol are both occupied!)

I want to remind you that my fur kids live on the property. Specifically, Charlee and Buddha, my two well trained German Shepherds, and beloved family members. They are never out unsupervised, so if you see them, they are with me.
If you do not care for dogs, respectfully, please find another place. I do not want you to be uncomfortable.
If you love dogs, WE LOVE YOU BACK!

Additionally, there are no pets allowed. Please do not show up with a pet. I will regretfully have to cancel your reservation.

Guest access
The only inside area of Casa Encantada that is private, NO guest access, is the loft area above the main bedroom.
Outside private areas are all located in the back yard; fenced area just off of the house to the right of back door, houseboat, screened off area west of houseboat, and metal clad building on southwest end of the property.

Other things to note
Please note that Airbnb does not collect sales tax for this area of New Mexico, so I am required to collect and remit to the state of New Mexico. The rate and amount will be requested through Airbnb's resolution center, (the current rate is 7.31% for the village of Magdalena.)

Location

Magdalena, New Mexico, United States

My neighbors live a pretty quiet life. The people here have families, so sometimes you hear children laughing and playing outside. One of my neighbors has a construction business, so you may hear him heading out to work in the morning, but in general, it is a pretty peaceful place to vacation. There are donkeys to the west; a rooster that doesn't really seem to know he should crow in the morning, but rather crows off and on throughout the day; lots of birds chattering and singing, dogs barking off and on, and sometimes in the predawn hours, you may hear hoots from an owl couple that live in a neighbor's tree; and coyotes talking to each other.

I am a stained glass artist, mother of four beautiful daughters and a fur kid German Shepherd daughter named Charlee. Update; Charlee had pups in April 2017, we kept one and his name is Buddha. Life is always full of laughter, find the humor!
