Out of consideration for people who are allergic to animals,
we regret that we DO NOT ALLOW PETS at Casitas de Gila Guesthouses.


We recognize that the incredible quiet we have at Casitas de Gila Guesthouses and Nature Preserve is difficult to find in the world today, and we want all our guests to be able to enjoy it. Casitas de Gila is a wonderful place for children who love nature and the out-of-doors. We understand that children are happy and boisterous, but we do ask that you and your children be respectful of other guests who have come here anticipating a quiet getaway.

Children age 5 and younger are welcome in Casita del Sol y la Luna, our 2-bedroom Casita, which can accommodate up to 6 people. Our 1-bedroom casitas can accommodate up to 3 people, including children age 6 and over.

Guests must be at least 18 years old to occupy a Casita without an adult. In other words, we will not make a room reservation for a minor without an adult staying in the room as well.

Children under the age of 16 must be in the company of an adult at all times when on our property and may not be left alone in a Casita.

Our hot tub is for use by adults only; Sorry, we are unable to allow anyone under the age of 18 to use it.

Groups at the Casitas:

Due to our small size, the proximity of our Casitas to each other, and how quiet it is here, we are often unable to accommodate reservations requiring three or more Casitas, especially during our busiest times of the year.

As a general rule, when three or more Casitas are requested, all five Casitas must be reserved. There is a minimum two-night stay for parties reserving all five Casitas. We are most able to accommodate groups during July and August, early December, and January. We are unable to accommodate groups during holiday periods and Monday-holiday weekends.

We are happy to talk with you about a group reservation, and because there are many factors involved, we may be able to make adjustments to our policy to accommodate you.

GROUP DEPOSIT & CANCELLATION POLICY: One person shall be responsible for full payment and any damage that might occur. A non-refundable deposit of $500 is due at the time the reservation is made. The balance must be paid in full 30 days prior to arrival. Once the balance has been paid, if the reservation is cancelled refunds will be made subject to our ability to fill the cancelled rooms.

When reserving our Casitas for a group, please keep in mind that our Casitas and grounds are solely for the use of your group, and outside guests are not permitted.

Casita Amenities:

A generous Continental Breakfast is included; more than enough for the first four nights. This includes baked sweetbreads, English muffins, bagels, cereals, 2% milk, orange juice, coffee, tea. (If you prefer a different milk, give us at least a week's notice and we'll get it for you.)

Kitchens are stocked with condiments (salt, pepper, ketchup, mustard, spices, butter, jam, etc.), charcoal, charcoal starter, sodas … this is included in the nightly rate!

All our kitchens are full kitchens, with a range/oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, coffeemaker, toaster, dishes, glassware, cutlery, pots and pans … they're as well equipped as your kitchen at home!

Each Casita has a picnic table and charcoal bbq grill. We also have 2 gas grills available (shared by the Casitas closest to them).

Free WIFI in each Casita.

Each Casita has a kiva fireplace inside (seasonal), a chimenea outside, and a supply of firewood.

Linens, towels, bath supplies, bathrobes, hair dryers, clock radios.

Outdoor hot tub (shared by the 5 Casitas) (adults only—age 18+).

Telephone in each Casita (your cell phone will not work at the Casita, but you can Skype or FaceTime! Or better yet: enable WiFi Calling in your newer smartphone's settings).

We sit on 265 acres with over 6 miles of hiking trails, including a Self-guided Nature Trail, and access to Bear Creek.

Library of information on Southwestern New Mexico, its culture, history, activities, and attractions.

Spotting scope and star charts in each Casita.


Reservation, Deposit & Cancellation Policies:

All reservations require a 50% deposit at time of reservation. We accept all major credit cards.

If your plans should change and you find it necessary to cancel your reservation, we would appreciate knowing as early as possible.

If you fail to cancel your reservation, any deposit paid will be forfeited.

We regret there are no refunds or credits within 24 hours of arrival date for early departures, late arrivals or cancellations.

If you cancel your reservation more than 21 days prior to arrival, your deposit will be refunded less a $25 per casita cancellation fee. If your cancellation is less than 21 days prior to arrival, please see next two items.


The balance owed on your reservation is payable on arrival.

Refunds will be given for cancellations received less than 21 days prior to arrival subject to our ability to fill the reservation and less a $25 per casita cancellation fee. If we cannot fill your cancelled reservation, we will extend to you a credit for the amount of your deposit to be used for another stay at Casitas de Gila within 12 months of your originally scheduled stay. One reschedule only, please.


We reserve the right to require a minimum stay over any Holiday Period.

The balance owed on your reservation is payable 21 days prior to arrival.

Refunds will be given for cancellations received less than 21 days prior to arrival subject to our ability to fill the reservation and less a $25 per casita cancellation fee. This means that if we can fill your cancelled room(s), we will happily refund your money (less the cancellation fees). Otherwise, we regret we can make no refunds.

We dislike charging anyone for time they are not here — that's not our goal, and maintaining goodwill is important to us as a business. But we do have only a limited number of rooms and late cancellations often cost us the chance to book the room to someone else.

February 16-17-18 — Presidents' Day

Check-In and Check-Out Times:

Check-in is between 3 PM and 6 PM. We are happy to accommodate early and late arrivals, but it is necessary for you to notify us in advance so that we are sure to be available.

We do ask that departures be made by 10 AM so we have time to prepare the Casitas for our next guests. We will always try to accommodate late departures; 24-hour notice is needed so we can alert our housekeeping staff. Please note that our housekeeping staff may not be able to adjust their schedule.

A Note on Air Conditioning:

By the middle of June it's hot — in the mid 90s — and usually windy. That's what brings on our monsoon rain season, which usually starts in July. The Casitas are not air conditioned. We have 30 to 40, even 50, degree temperature swings between day and night and little humidity. The Casitas have ceiling fans and a portable fan; opening the windows and blinds around 8 PM and closing them by 7 AM cools down the Casita overnight and keeps it cool during the day as the Casitas are super insulated.

Our focus has always been to enable our guests to connect with nature. We want our guests to experience the amazing silence we have here, to hear at night with the windows wide open the night birds, the crickets, coyotes, bobcat calls, owls. We encourage our guests to be outside during the day to explore our beautiful nature preserve and the interesting area attractions and hikes. Air conditioning conflicts with the experience we wish our guests to have at Casitas de Gila.

If you may be bothered by the lack of air conditioning, we encourage you to stay with us before mid-June or after mid-September and avoid the summer months. For the others, summer is amazing! Thunderstorms and monsoon rains are exciting and beautiful events, and you might even see a brief flash-flood come down Bear Creek and a double-rainbow over Turtle Rock.
