REPRESENTATIVE RENTERS' QUOTES:
“I just wanted to let you know that Julie and I had a great time and Santa Fe and really enjoyed the apartment. Thank you very much for everything. It’s a great place. We also took your recommendations and went to La Choza and Café Sena, and hiked the Atalaya trial. It all made for a great vacation for us.
Again, thank you.”
“We really had the best time and will be in touch about coming back next year.
Is there anything you would like me to do before we leave?
Thank you again, we really had a great time!”
“We've been in a bit over a week and I haven't yet thanked you for your kind note and lovely bottle of wine - thank you for such a nice welcome!
Anyway, this photo was taken the day we arrived as we were about to set out on our first walk. Bear had been in the car for 3 days; he was ready to go! We've been on many outings since with his favorite being off leash on the many mountain trails full of other happy canines.
We love the house and its many charms. I feel like I'm just getting to know it, now that things have finally quieted down. I'd love to know the history of it if you get the chance.
Hope this finds you well and, again, thank you for everything.”
“I've been enjoying the house, and Santa Fe's great fall weather-
I'm going to hate to leave.
I hope everything is going well with you all!!
“Thank you. What a wonderful house you have! We certainly want to come back. There is so much that we did not get to do. We are eagerly anticipating a return trip.”
“We have enjoyed our time here very much. Living in this neighborhood has given us an entirely different Santa Fe experience than we have had in the past. I have explored the area and learned my way around town, which has been a lot of fun. All in all, it has been delightful. I hate to go home where the heat has been over 100 for a long time- 110 yesterday! Thanks for sharing your lovely space.”
“The stay was very enjoyable. We were wondering if your place is free in Aug. If so we would be interested in renting it again?”
Keywords: 1 of 3 Apartments in Private Compound
Owned jointly by two old friends--one a retired anthropologist who lives in Colorado and the other a retired consultant who lives in Florida. We (and our husbands) love Santa Fe's cultural richness, arts, great food, spectacular scenery with such a variety of ecosystems, wonderful hiking, birding and other wildlife viewing.
Chris Schluter purchased this apartment in 1986
It's old Santa Fe at its best--beautifully and very comfortably appointed and maintained both indoors and out, with mature landscaping by a famous designer. In minutes we can be on the trail hiking up Atalaya Peak, summit 9,121. Afterward, we can walk three blocks to dinner at Geronimo's, the Compound, or El Farol and all the shops and galleries on Canyon Road. The home is in an historic Santa Fe neighborhood; yet we have extensive, secluded grounds with beautiful, private native, xeric gardens, organic fruit trees, and a huge, completely enclosed and private patio.
Great privacy and beauty very close to everything. Flocks of butterflies and birds, including hummingbirds, live here because the property is filled with mature native trees, shrubs, and perennials, and organic fruit trees. Sitting on the 1000-square-foot enclosed, private and quiet patio, or strolling paths by the front beds, it's hard to believe that we're minutes to Canyon Road and the Plaza.
I'd been on a road trip for 2 1/2 months, staying at various VRBO and Airbnb homes all across the country, and this home was the VERY BEST place I stayed! Chris was so easy to communicate with. The home had everything we needed for our week long stay. Chris had many tips about what sites to visit during our trip. My two dogs were welcomed and there are great walks nearby that are dog friendly. The beds and linens are very comfortable, the home is quiet, and there are beautiful fireplaces for those chilly evenings. This is clearly a well loved home that the hosts regularly use themselves, which makes it a privilege to stay there. Thank you, Chris!
When I arrived at the casa I was surprised at how spacious it was. There was plenty of room for myself and the guests I had invited to join me on my 10 day stay. I also had my two well behaved dogs who were welcomed without question. On the kitchen table was a welcoming packet of delectable chocolate which was made by neighbor Linda. A fully appointed kitchen was perfect for cooking and hanging out. The casa was within walking distance to Canyon Road and the Plaza as well as museums,restaurants and churches. The area is filled with history and was a great place to walk (with or without dogs). While I was at the casa there was a full moon that lit up the landscape-just gorgeous! Three fireplaces were available for cozy evenings and the surrounding area was very quiet. Christine is wonderful to do business with and I will return. She gave me helpful suggestions as to restaurants and galleries which I enjoyed. Uber pleasant experience and wonderful people!
When I first arrived I was struck by the cozy,quaint,comfort of the place. It was spacious and fully equipped with three fireplaces and kitchen gadgets galore. I was fortunate enough to stay for 10 days which allowed me to get a great feel for the historic,charming and totally accessible Canyon Road neighborhood. I walked to the wonderful galleries,restaurants and the historic plaza with all the museums and churches along the way. A packet of delectable and homemade chocolate was waiting for me when I arrived. My well behaved dogs were welcomed without question. The casa was very quiet and the owner was very accommodating. I will return!
This was the perfect home for our family's Christmas/New Years vacation. The home accommodated all four of us plus our terrier. The location is top noch, just steps away from the galleries on Canyon road. My son commented that, "Everything is on five minutes way." We loved the traditional Adobe features, such as three kivas and the beamed ceilings. The high Adobe walls keep all traffic noise at bay. I highly recommend this home for anyone wanting to get to know Santa on a more personal level. You will feel like a local.
We had a wonderful visit in Chris's fully stocked, charming Santa Fe adobe home - very quiet, beautiful artwork, and very comfortable. It was November with a surprise snow storm but everything remained cozy and warm. The kitchen was complete with a beautiful table, perfect for a dinner in with friends. The location was perfect for us and fun to be in this lovely residential section, near to Canyon Road, the Tea House, and Downtown Subscription. We were able to entertain one night, do a big load of laundry, and have fun with our new grand baby. We did not use the fireplaces, tempting as it was given the cold weather, but the house remained warm nonetheless.
In the description it says Home away from Home and that describes this wonderful Casita. As I entered I felt like it was mine, and it was for a month in October.
I unpacked my printing press (I turned the kitchen into a Printmaking Studio) and begin to gather leaves and flowers from the yard to make Nature Prints.
I made day and overnight trips throughout New Mexico but was always excited to return to my home away from home.
As an artist I so enjoyed all the collected artworks throughout the Casita. I could continue with so much more but just to say that staying in this Casita and many email exchanges with Chris was a big part of my New Mexico experience.
I will be back and hope to stay even longer.
