Business Trip

My wife had to travel to El Paso for business and I decided to tag along. We were looking for a place to stay and discovered Casa de Riata. The home was very clean and provided everything we needed to cook with and to enjoy our week. San Elizario is close to El Paso but still provides small town charm. If we have the opportunity we will stay again. Thanks Ellie, We enjoyed our visit. Dave & Genia

If anyone is considering a vacation in Texas, I would strongly recommend you visit San Elizario and discover the history that this area has to offer. By all means, you have to book Casa de Riata for your stay. You will find Ellies house most comfortable, a home away from home, excellent accomodations with a very friendly and helpful hostess. The rooms are spacious, beds are like you were at home, secure with friendly neighbours (family members) quiet area and close to all services. Jean & I enjoyed our month in this place and would not hesitate to rent there again. Thank you once again, Ellie, for allowing us into your home.

Owner's reply:

It was a pleasure having you guys.

Casa Rita - San Elizario TX. El Paso area

My family and I had a wonderful stay. We were attending a family reunion and were able to have family and friends come over for dinner and visit. If we were to have stayed in a hotel we would not have had that opportunity to do so.

Great time in San Elizario

We had a very nice time in San Elizario. Casa de Riata is a great get away, and being in San Elizario was a lot of fun. The house was very comfortable. The kids loved the fussball table, and playing the other games that are in the house. We look forward to visiting again soon.

Comfortable, Roomy and Good Location

We enjoyed our stay at Casa de Riata. We usually stay at an extended stay hotel and this was so much nicer and more spacious. We really enjoyed the art galleries and the nearby restaurants. It was nice to sit on the patio and soak up some west texas sun! It was a 10 minute drive to the interstate. We found the locals to be super friendly. There is a place up the road that sells fantastic burritos! Thanks again.
