Homes with Casitas Mesquite NV Southwestern guest cottages - Lakeridge Golfcourse Community

Homes with a Casita - Lakeridge in Mesquite NV - Southwestern guest homes - Casitas are popular in Mesquite NV and in several of the southwestern states.  Used as a guest cottage, mother-in-law residence or even a home office - a casita is a well liked feature in Mesquite and found in homes in several gated golfcourse subdivisions including Lakeridge golfcourse community.  Sometimes detached from the home and across a courtyard from the main home with a separate entrance, a casita allows guests to have privacy and come and go without disturbing the occupants of the main home.

Some subdivisions like Sun City Mesquite and Vista Del Monte also offer floor plans with a choice of a casita or a 3rd car garage.  Some casitas are built under the main roof line but still have a separate entrance, usually near the front of the home or within an enclosed courtyard - some have a casita under as a separate unit.  A few of the more expensive custom home subdivisions like Calais have homes with 2 separate casitas.

Casitas usually have a separate heating and air conditioning unit, allowing the guest to be comfortable, as well as giving the homeowner the opportunity to save expense on utilities while the unit is not occupied.

Some folks use their casita as an office, or as a mother-in-law studio apartment.  Mesquite does not allow an actual stove/range for cooking, but many come with a sink, small fridge and microwave.

One of my friends used theirs for their noisy daughter while she was in college.  How do they study with that music blaring?

A casita can be a small room with just room for a bedroom set with a small closet and bathroom, or it can be as big as a studio apartment, such as the one shown in the following video.  The extra square footage is not always reflected on the Clark county assessor site, especially with Sun City Mesquite and Lakeridge homes - so you should be careful to include it while shopping for homeowner insurance.

This casita across a courtyard belongs to an upcoming listing in the Lakeridge golf course community in Mesquite NV.
