Dear Guests & Friends,


As we continue to deal with the never-ending challenge of COVID, Rob and I want to ease your mind about safety practices at La Perla until all risk has passed. 

First, we take the science of COVID seriously and ask that you do the same when visiting New Mexico. Last year NM had one of the lowest COVID counts in the US for months, until we got careless. Many stopped wearing masks to protect others and gathered in groups, restaurants and bars, both inside and outside. Then NM became one of the hot spots in the US. 

These concerns prompted us to develop a list of guidelines for us as owner/hosts, and for you as our guests. 

  • The unit will be cleaned according to the current Hospitality Industry standards.  This includes cleaners wearing masks and gloves while cleaning, followed by additional disinfecting of surfaces, doors, and the entry gate.

  • We will leave a minimum of 72 hours between cleaning the unit and guests' arrival. Should you want to arrive within that 72 hour window, we will inform you of such and discuss any concerns or questions you have.

  • We will wear masks and social distance at least 6 feet when greeting and talking with you

  • Disinfectant and paper towels will be stationed next to the gate, and wipes if we are able to obtain them.

  • Information regarding current New Mexico safety guidelines & requirements will be shared before and during your visit.

We ask that you…

  • Wear a mask as you enter and leave the property.

  • Social distance at least 6 feet from others on the property, including us, your hosts. 

  • Inform Rob or me in advance when you plan to have visitors IF you would like to use the patio area. This allows us to clean and disinfect outside seating areas. 

  • Assume responsibility for cleaning the private back patio for your own use. It will be cleaned prior to your arrival.

  • Follow the guidelines in place in New Mexico at the time of your visit.


With heartfelt concern,    Phyllis & Rob Rispoli
