Me / You
I am a native El Pasoan, father of two, grandfather of one. I've recently retired and thought hosting an AirBnb would be a great way to meet new people and earn a little income. I love the outdoors and you'll often find me camping, hiking, or biking or working on a home project. I'm also an amateur guitarist and woodworker.
I’m looking for guests who are kind and thoughtful and who are looking for the best El Paso, Juarez and the surrounding area has to offer. I like to keep a neat home and so I ask for respectful guests who leave a place as they found it. No pets, and please ask about children. The Casita is a safe place, but is not toddler proof.
** Please send a message to check availability as I occasionally will forget to block a date, ...and tell me a bit about yourself.
- This is a quiet residential neighborhood. Quiet time at 10pm please. Smoking allowed on the back patio or front porch.
