Welcome to Casita Colibri! This cozy and rustic cabin/tiny house is your perfect getaway! We are 10 minutes from downtown Durango, moments away from hiking trails, open space, and the national forest. This is a beautiful garden retreat, tucked away behind Animas Mountain. This is unique living: futon bed in the loft, composting toilet, outdoor shower, and mini kitchen with the basics. Enjoy the front porch as the sun goes down. Pure delight. Good for adventurers, travelers, and couples. Enjoy!
Casita Colibri is a lovely small cabin / tiny-house with a sleeping loft with a queen futon mattress, bathroom sink and vanity, hot and cold water, outdoor shower, mini fridge, toaster oven and coffee makings but is not set up for cooking. We will provide filtered drinking water as well - tap water is great too. The casita does not have full plumbing but does have a composting toilet that works great. This is rustic and cozy living. Not a ton of space, but great to come home to after a day playing outside. The setting in our lush garden is what makes this place amazing. Please, enjoy!
The porch, outdoor shower and casita are your private space during your stay but you are welcome to share our grill on our front porch and the fire pit in the garden. Grab some lawn chairs too if you like!
Interaction with guests
The casita is located across a small yard from our home so you will see us come and go. We are happy to give you space and privacy or hangout if that is your style. The shared grill is on our front porch and the shared fire pit is in the garden up a terraced stairway from the casita and our house.
Other things to note
FYI-there are 30 stairs between the parking area and the casita...this spot is not for the faint of heart. Cell phone service is limited in the valley (best with Verizon).
- Treat this space as if it was your own

Hello. I am originally from Carbondale, Colorado and after many years of living outside of this beautiful state, I am happy to be living here once again, in the mountains and deserts of Durango.
We have a beautiful home with incredible gardens and gorgeous views. It is a true sanctuary, located just 10 minutes out of town. We are happy to share our space with you and we look forward to meeting you!
