This house is the ARTISTS' RETREAT.
It is just blocks for the Plaza, yet removed from the chaos. Contemporary Santa Fe Style home with hand plastered walls, beams and all the details.
The centerpiece is a jewel like great room that is surrounded by the gourmet kitchen, a cozy dining area, and a large flagstone patio. The patio has mature Aspen trees and an incredible double sided fireplace that connects through to the great room.
This three-bedroom home (sleeps 6-7) has a large master suite with attached roof deck offering views of the Sangres and Jemez mountain ranges - delightful. The suite also has a spa-like bathroom with large steam shower, an over-sized jetted tub and a fabulous travertine vanity for two. The guest suite has great morning light, a terrace with views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and a large en-suite bathroom. The third bedroom is a studio with its own bathroom, sitting area, small kitchen and loft like high ceilings. This bedroom can sleep 2-4 people with a full bed and a queen futon.
This large home is a great solution for your Santa Fe vacation. It is perfect for 3 couples or a large family.
You also are going to love the location. It is an easy walk to the plaza (shops and restaurants) and Canyon Road (galleries galore). The plaza is 6 blocks and Canyon Road is 8 blocks away.
We live in the same neighborhood and really love it. Quiet, convenient and safe. We would not live anywhere else.

Sandra & Justin
Style and comfort for your vacation. It is your home away from home! Have fun!
Justin is an architect and Sandra is a marketing professional. We live in Santa Fe and travel the world finding unique details to make our houses more special. We live in the same neighborhood (over 15 years) and are looking forward to hosting your Santa Fe vacation! You will have a great time!
The Owner purchased this condo in 2008
This house has everything you want for a great time in Santa Fe. Great location, quiet, stylish.
Dear Sandra & Justin, we have fallen in love with Artist Retreat! Thank you for opening your home to us. The detail and design of the house is AMAZING. We have rented from VRBO all over the world and this spot is one of our most favorites.!GRACIAS! We want to talk to you about returning in a few months and about long term rental next summer. We are also interested in your other properties. Thank you kindly for everything. We truly had an AWESOME time. SM, BM, E, OK. (Steven and his wonderful family and friends stayed at Artist Retreat from July 23 to 26.)
We stayed at the Artist Retreat the week before Christmas. I was a little nervous sending payment before seeing the house, but the pictures are all accurate and it is even better in person! We have a vacation home in another state and I have to say the owners have certainly thought about everything you might need when staying in this home! In fact, I wished I could transport this home to our location I loved it so much! It was a terrific layout for multiple generations; the attached (lower level)apartment was great for our college kids and gave them some space and privacy and us a break when needed! Our parents had a room of their own and my husband and I took the master suite (Awesome!). The only regret was that the weather was not warmer so we could enjoy the patio off the master, but the views were terrific from upstairs and the outside patio with see thru fireplace was a wonderful treat for the outside. This fireplace really put off some heat inside and out, unlike some that are just for looks. The in-floor radiant heat was a wonderful way to heat the condo, I was worried that with all the windows it could be cold in the winter. Not so, in fact we never needed to adjust the heat! We cooked in all but one night and had everything we needed for meal prep, and ran to Trader Joes and Albertson's for food. The guidebook Sandra and Justin provided gave you all of the details needed, and walking into the plaza was a short walk (uphill partway on the way back) but very easy walk. I would love to return to this home in another season, and know you will enjoy! I would rent any of their properties when returning to Santa Fe!
Four of us visited Santa Fe for a long weekend and felt very fortunate to have been able to stay at the Opera House! Located close to the Plaza makes it very convenient. The home is thoughtfully designed, furnished and outfitted making it different from many rental properties. It was most comfortable and on a cool weekend we used the fireplace a lot! The description offered on the website and the pictures were accurate and honest. The owners were extremely helpful and pleasant. A great weekend!
I am a picky traveler and a VRBO junkie (I use it pretty much everywhere we go). Let me say that the Artist Retreat House has it all! The house (condo) itself is beautifully designed (both architecture and interior spaces). It has the feeling of an artist's loft (if the artist had enough money to furnish it nicely). It is open and light-filled. The two upstairs bedrooms are spacious and the extra bedroom/apartment is perfect for those guests wanting a little privacy (or if you want a little privacy from them). The steam shower in the master bedroom upstairs was an unexpected treat - not the sort of thing you'd expect from any rental home. But then again, this doesn't feel at all like a rental. Sandra and Justin are consummate hosts. They have done all the research on the area and the greater surrounds and have compiled it into the perfect guidebook. I've been to Santa Fe before, but didn't know about "Tent Rocks" park for hiking. Sandra and Justin said it was a "do not miss" place. They were absolutely right - it was the highlight of the trip! Incredible beauty. Their restaurant recommendations - spot on. We checked them against Yelp and also with friends who have been to Santa Fe several times. We ended up making reservations at several of their favorite places and the food was fantastic.
Often VRBO titles use the word "retreat", but this house really is a retreat. It is an easy walk to the historic plaza, but each day we found ourselves looking forward to getting back to our retreat for a glass of wine and a little chill time. It was a wonderful hang-out place. Thank you Sandra and Justin for an absolutely wonderful experience! People like you are the reason I keep coming back to VRBO again and again!
I met Justin to get the keys. With a quick handshake and hello - we opened up the doors and Justin said, "Welcome home!”. For the week that we were in Santa Fe is truly was home. Fabulous kitchen- we made great dinners. Wonderful living space. Everyone could come together in the great room and then retreat back to their own room for some alone time. The bathrooms are nice, big and clean. The upstairs bathroom with steam shower- made the proximity to the spa, 10,000 waves, almost irrelevant. There should be a sign up sheet for the steam shower! Outdoor space is great. Location is wonderful- easy walk to town for those with kids there is a HUGE playground 2 blocks away. Seemed like we were 5 minutes from everything. I highly recommend this home, but please not the first 2 weeks in January as we plan on returning!!
WONDERFUL SPACE FOR A FAMILY GATHERING.BEDROOMS NICELY SEPERATE YET INCLUSIVE, KITCHEN AND FAMILY GATHERING AREA OPEN AND COMFORTABLE. FURNISHINGS VERY COMFORTABLE AND KITCHEN WELL APOINTED. CLEAN,HANDSOME AND STURDY CONSTRUCTION.WE HAD A GREAT TIME AND WOULD NOT HESITATE TO RETURN. LOCATION WAS FABULOUS. BOOK IT!
Great location, floor plan, and owners. We were there with 4 teenagers, and the house layout was perfect. House feels much bigger than square footage. Owners were even out shoveling snow off the drive, and were easy to deal with. Would stay again!
