Enjoyed our stay in Santa Fe and the view from this 3rd floor condo

We really enjoyed our stay this Cielo Grando condo. Everything was clean, maintained and as described and pictured, with just a couple exceptions.These may not matter to some people, but we were a little disappointed that the Kiva fireplaced was blocked and not able to be used since it is featured in the lead picture in the VRBO Ad and mentioned in the list of amenities. I may have chosen a different property, but wasn't told about the fireplace bering closed up until after I made my final payment. At the very least I think a discount should have benn offered. Also, although the views from the 3rd floor balcony are amazing, beware that the unit back up to a major highway and the traffic noise can be pretty loud in during commuting times. Ovewrall, we were pleased with the unit and would recommend it to others.
Make sure you take in some of the many wonderful restaurants in Santa Fe. Dinner for Two was the best, but we also really enjoyed, Luminaria, Pink Adobe and Tanti Luce 221. You can get the best pizza neaby at Pizzeria de Lino. Dine-in, it's great!

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed the condo, and that, as you said, it was very clean and well maintained with great views. Thank you for saying you would recommend it to others. We also apologize for not informing you that the fireplaces throughout the entire complex have been blocked by the condo association for safety reasons until they are all refurbished in time for the late fall season. It's usually warmer this time of year than it has been. The condo is located on a frontage road to the main artery, St. Francis, which is noisy when outside but very quiet when inside the condo. So yes, there is road noise when outside on the balcony, but there are few, if any, locations with a great view, especially at this price, in Santa Fe, and the location can't be beat for convenience, parking--and views. I wish it were perfect, but we try hard to give great value and a wonderful experience.
