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.
In minutes we can be on the trail hiking up Atalaya Trail, 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 grounds with beautiful, private gardens and patios.
Great privacy and beauty very close to everything. Lots of butterflies and birds, including hummingbirds, live here because the property is filled with mature native trees, shrubs, and perennials, and fruit trees. Sitting on the very private and quiet patio, it's hard to believe that we're minutes to Canyon Road and the Plaza.
Highly cosmopolitan small city with outstanding Opera, chorale, chamber music festival, flamenco, ballet, Native American dance, enormous art and literary communities (Native American, Hispanic, Anglo), third largest art market in US, unique spas in area, wide variety of cuisines available nearby, close to great coffee shop with large newspaper selection
