HEADLINE: Cool-to-hot (you control it!) outdoor showers & cowboy soaking tub for year-round enjoyment. King-size Bed, Firepit, Gas BBQ Grill, 2 Bikes* and numerous seating areas, all set in a large back yard in a rural small town neighborhood. 'let your inner child run free' is painted on a sign near the soaking tub, along with advice to 'RELAX', 'SOAK', 'CHILL', 'LAUGH' AND 'SWING!'. SUMMARY: This vintage 1930’s 1 bedroom 1 bath Truth or Consequences duplex is loaded with amenities & cheerful ambience, but the real draw is the adjustable temperature, all natural mineral water “cowboy” soaking tub & dual showers.

King-size Bed, Firepit, Gas BBQ Grill, 2 Bikes* and numerous seating areas, all set in a large back yard in a rural small town neighborhood. 'let your inner child run free' is painted on a sign near the soaking tub, along with advice to 'RELAX', 'SOAK', 'CHILL', 'LAUGH' AND 'SWING!'. SUMMARY: This vintage 1930’s 1 bedroom 1 bath Truth or Consequences duplex is loaded with amenities & cheerful ambience, but the real draw is the adjustable temperature, all natural mineral water “cowboy” soaking tub & dual showers. This serene yet cheerful art-filled property boasts numerous flowering shrubs, trees & seating areas—some with a view of Turtleback Mountain—as well as a wood fire pit and gas BBQ grill (wood and propane provided!). Indoors boasts eclectic vintage décor, bright colors & artistic flairs. In the kitchen you’ll find a full-sized fridge, Keurig, microwave, toaster & electric range. Enjoy a 43” Samsung Smart TV & DVD player in the living room, while in the bedroom you’ll sleep in comfort on a new King size bed, which also features an electric fireplace, plush cotton robes, and even a washer & dryer! Pet-friendly with a nominal PER STAY fee of $40.00 for up to two dogs. Please advise if you have dogs. THE PROPERTY: Bedroom: King Bed / Living Room: Fold-down Sofa Bed with privacy fenced back yard. THE SPA AND BACK GARDEN: Upon arrival at Aquarius, you’ll probably want to head out to the large, private, fenced-in back garden, where you’re sure to spend most of your vacation. At the very back of the yard, the “cowboy” soaking tub & two “rain” showers are fed by the natural underground mineral springs well for which Truth or Consequences is renowned, and it’s the perfect way to soothe your sore muscles after a long day of sight-seeing. With separate hot/cold faucets for both the showers & the soaking tub, you can adjust the temperature to your liking as your mood and the weather changes. Sometimes it feels better to have a cool plunge (or long chill soak) than to sit in hot water when the summer heat is upon you--or even in the winter with the strong high desert sunshine. This recently updated home is located in what is officially known as the Hot Springs Historic District, but this particular water-well tapped into a cooler pocket of the aquifer, so every drop is natural mineral water—no city water added! Water is heated with an on-demand heater pumping directly from the mineral water well. The water feels silky and buoyant around your body. A bit of wonderful natural silt sinks to the bottom of the tub; scoop some up and rub it over your skin (especially your feet) to enjoy a fabulous scrub experience during your many soaks; there are spas that charge high dollars for that! And if you’ve never had an au naturel shower, you’re in for a treat! There’s nothing quite like the feel of the breeze flowing over your body as you stand under the rain-shower-heads. THE BEDROOM: New Nectar King-size bed with added pillow-top & true 'pillow menu'. Electric fireplace with remote that controls heat & flames separately. Make-up table w/2 mirrors & chair. Chest of drawers, end tables, lamps, high quality hangers & 2 cotton robes in closet. Washer & dryer with detergent! Blackout drapes, screened garden door. Extra sheets & towels. ASK ABOUT MULTI-NIGHT DISCOUNTS NOT LISTED HERE! THE KITCHEN: Keurig & 6+ K-cups, creamer, plastic wrap, alum. foil, all utensils, knives, dishes, pots & pans, even spices! Toaster, microwave, double stainless steel sink w/cleaners and spray nozzle. 2 bar stools w/padded backs/seats. 1 round bar stool. THE LIVING ROOM: Sofa bed makes into OVERSIZE TWIN, Smart TV, 80+ TV channels, DVD player/DVD collection, jigsaw puzzles, games, books, dominoes. Sheets & comforter for sofa bed. Swivel rocker, 2 end tables, antique cabinet. THE BATHROOM: Roomy tiled shower with stationary rain shower & handheld adj. shower head. Shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, lotions, foaming soap, towels, washcloths, hair dryer, so many amenities! * Two bicycles may be available at a rate of $15/week for BOTH bikes (not per bike).(* $15 minimum fee, subject to availability, since they are shared with the other unit in this duplex--anticipated opening of May 2019). This is one entire unit in a duplex with separate entrances on opposite sides of the building and an 8' high privacy fence separating the two yards. More

Interaction with guests
The place is all yours! Although I am happy to meet with you if desired, it's not necessary. I know when I when I stay at a vacation rental, I generally prefer to be alone, or at least have some choice about when I interact with other folks. I live in another neighborhood, and you'll have my phone # (if you should want/need to call), but your keys will be in a lock box next to the padlocked entry gate, to which you'll have been given the 4-digit code. You can find helpful info and recommendations in the Directory, including a list of recommended restaurants. : ) This is a duplex with an 8' privacy fence between it and the other side and 6' privacy fences between you and the neighbors on the East side.

About the neighbourhood
This is an excellent location from which to take leisurely walks and bike rides, whether towards the Rio Grande (right on Daniels or left on Clancy will take you different places--Rotary Park on the Rio Grande with walkbridge or around the road to the stairs up to the Mesa on the Healing Waters Trail), or the couple short blocks to downtown where you can find many restaurants, quirky shops and art galleries, the local brewery and grocery store. Drive out to Elephant Butte Lake (Marina del Sur or Dam Site Recreation Area and Winding Roads), up to Hillsboro or Kingston (call ahead to see if Hillsboro Cafe is open that day for lunch or Black Range Winery for tasting), Monticello or Cuchillo. Take scenic Hy 187 to Shattuck Vineyard, Caballo.
Getting around
If you plan to arrive in T or C without a car, you can inquire about the use of the two bicycles to get most places you want to go--at a very reasonable rental rate of $15 for BOTH for the duration of your stay, or one week, whichever is shorter. Upon payment, you will be give the code to the combo like on the bike chain and the tires will be properly inflated just prior to your arrival. There's a backpack in the bedroom closet if you go to Bullock's Grocery Store. If you want to venture up to Walmart or out to the lakes, a car would be nice, but you can also get a ride on the Solar Buzz, the state's only solar-powered bus! I can't post their # here due to site rules but ask me after booking if interested.
