Fulfilling a vision through the blue door
Updated: Jul 8
Starting Casa Otra Vez was part of a vision to connect with and support the local community. We've been fortunate to hire many skilled professionals to help us with everything from rebuilding a bathroom, maintaining the roof, to having Southwest Suites effectively manage the property. We're always happy to work with local businesses.
The film and television community has come back in force, and we've been able to be their home-away-from-home. Unlike STR's, our clients stay for most the year. This has given us the leverage to turn our vision to the other part of our mission, which is to support nonprofit organizations in New Mexico that make our community a more vibrant and healthier place to live.
We'd like to pay tribute to the non-profit organizations we support.
