El alojamiento
IMPORTANT: 3 night minimum is for in-state guests only. For out-of-state guests the minimum is 28 nights until further notice from our governor, so that those guests can self-quarantine for two weeks. It is against the law to host out-of-state guests short term in New Mexico: there's a fine of $500 per guest per night, permanent loss of business license and rental permit, and up to 90 days in jail.

There's no other home in the world like the Star House. The entire first floor is yours and it's super clean. I live on the 2nd and 3rd floors but I'm a writer and I write quietly so you can have total privacy. Hi speed wifi.

In your apartment there is a hallway leading to the living room, kitchen and bedroom. The living room has a sofa and wing chair for relaxing and watching TV or reading, and a bedroom with an adjoining bathroom which has a walk-in shower (or you may choose the other bathroom which has a tub/shower or, if you stay long term, you may have both bathrooms.)

(Please note that before I got a month-to-month tenant working on a project in Questa, I had the Star House listed as a vacation rental and had a 5-star rating and rave reviews. She has now gone on to another project and I'm putting the Star House back on AirBnb, but because I had deleted it before, the rave reviews were deleted too and I'm starting all over again. Let me prove to you that I'm an excellent host.)

The kitchen has a new refrigerator/freezer, new gas stove and oven, new counters and cabinets, new sink, new dishes and silverware and a maple table with four new chairs. The Sangre de Cristos Mountains peek in the big kitchen window.

The bedroom also has a view of the mountains and the furniture is art deco. Your comfortable bed has a reading lamp on each side. The walk-in closet can not only hold your clothes, it's big enough to store your suitcases and other stuff.

The en suite bathroom features a built-in mahogany cupboard, walls lined with pine and mahogany and a walk-in shower with blue rocks on the floor. (Actually, they're smooth tiles but they look like rocks.)

Thank goodness the first floor is partially underground. It's always cool at night in Northern New Mexico but your part of the house is cool all summer, even during hot days. And there's an evaporative cooler in your living room. It's not air conditioning which uses refrigerants. The main difference between air coolers and air conditioners is the first runs air through water, reducing the temperature through evaporative cooling, while the other uses refrigerants to absorb heat, push out cold air and reduce humidity to cool the room. Air coolers are healthier. Each room has electric heat.

Outdoors, your private patio has a bistro table and two chairs - and an umbrella if it's not too windy. Nearby is a fenced-in flower garden, where you can pick some flowers to put in your apartment.

Your living room window frames that garden and bluebirds love to perch on the fence and flirt with you. There's a sofa as well as a comfy wing chair for reading or you can watch Netflix on the flat screen TV attached to the wall.

This is MAGICAL country. The night sky is spectacular! There's no light pollution so you can even see the milky way on clear nights.

If you meditate (or even if you don't), there's a hidden path for you to follow to the far back of the property where a quiet oases awaits you. Bring one of our folding chairs and sit under a pine tree. Very private.

Bring your laptop if you want to write or email. There's high-speed wifi. If you're tired of telecommuting from home, come to the star house and work.

The designer? My late husband, Jacques Duvoisin, who was an architect, designed the house. After we bought the land (because of the VIEWS) he kept doodling with design ideas and discarding them, until one evening when we were in a restaurant having dinner. He took a square paper napkin, put another square napkin at an angle on top and said: Voila! An 8-pointed star house. A small town, High Bridge in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, was my last stop before here. I love both places but this is heaven!

Bring your hiking boots: Wild Rivers Recreation Areas, which is part of the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, is just 10 miles away and has some challenging climbs. Ski at Red River, Angel Fire or Taos Mountain. There's rafting nearby too.

The great Sand Dunes National Park is less than an hour and a half from here. If you've never been, it's a MUST SEE! I was dragged there by neighbors who insisted I see it (I thought it would be boring) and it blew my mind!

There's no adequate word to describe the views at the Star House. If you belong here, the kick-ass mountains will captivate you and make you want to stay awhile.

- If you crave clean, pure air and clean, pure water...

- If you love beauty and appreciate the clean lines of an 8-pointed star-shaped house...

- If you have a deep connection with nature and want your soul nourished by the brilliance of planets and stars against a dark sky...

this is the rental for you. (And your pooch!)

Questa, Nuevo México, Estados Unidos

The neighborhood is quiet and the people in the El Rito section of Questa are the best! A beautiful Tibetan Buddhist Temple and stupa are a half mile away to the south where teachings (Buddhist and wholistic) and retreats take place. The Latir Volunteer Fire department is a half mile to the west.

Since 2007 I've been writing and giving inspirational talks (about growing younger!) and my second book was recently published. Five years after watching my mother succumb to Alzheimer’s Disease, my own cognition and memory began a downward spiral (I have the Alzheimer’s gene, APO-e4). Determined to do everything in my power to reverse aging and reclaim happiness, I developed a program of mind/body/spirit techniques that proved so successful, I couldn’t keep it all to myself. I wrote and published “The Secret Method for Growing Younger,” the prizewinning book which provides vital first steps for rejuvenation and happiness. When I was invited to help address the depression epidemic of a northern New Mexico town, I knew that a detailed, step-by-step action plan for all seven habits was needed and Volume 2 of "The Secret Method for Growing Younger” was born. And for you, I'll do my best to make sure the rentals are well stocked and super clean.
