BEAUTIFUL ADOBE OVERLOOKING GHOST RANCH AND ABIQUIU LAKE

Abiquiu House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps, Modern Adobe

'It was all so far away--there was quiet and an untouched feel to the country and I could work as I pleased.' Georgia O'Keeffe

Serenity abounds at Casa Bonita, where it is easy to see why this country had such a profound impact on Georgia O'Keeffe. Light and open, this modern adobe rests on ten acres overlooking Abiquiu Lake towards Ghost Ranch, with gorgeous views in all directions. Picture windows throughout the living area allow you to appreciate the vistas from the comfort of the well-appointed interior. The covered portales (covered porches) are ideal for enjoying the tranquility of the environment. Admire the view of the Pedernal from the portale off of the master suite, or take in the iconic landscape of Ghost Ranch while you grill on the portale off of the kitchen.

Spend your days hiking, visiting area galleries, or reconnecting with your own creative side. And after enjoying the unique sunset at the end of the day, savor the starlight of the unadulterated night sky.

'My first memory is of light--the brightness of light--light all around.' Georgia O'Keeffe

PERFECT BLEND OF SERENITY & COMFORT!!

Perfect blend of serenity & comfort!!
  • 5 of 5
Casa Bonita was absolutely perfect for our long anticipated return visit to Abiquiu. The house felt like home the instant we opened the door and the large picture windows provided beautiful panoramic views of the lake and Ghost Ranch area. We spent lots of time just watching the changing colors on the landscape....thank you for providing the binoculars! We especially enjoyed hiking around the house, the full moon, the birds, and seeing The Pedernal through the bedroom windows at sunrise. One stop we added on this trip was the Lake Visitor Center...will plan to add some fishing time to our next visit!

The directions to the house were easy to follow and though the location is about 4 miles from pavement, the 2 locked gates provided an extra sense of security.

The kitchen is completely stocked with everything you need to do simple to elaborate meals. We shopped for a few extra groceries at Bode's in Abiquiu before we drove out to the house so we were able to just relax and do meals at our leisure.

The bed was very comfortable, the towels were ample, and the entire house was very clean! The carport made loading/unloading super convenient.

We are so grateful to John for making his home available to rent. We appreciate how nice everyone was and the ease of communication for questions, etc. Our only regret was having to leave and we definitely plan a return visit!

FABULOUS!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous time! The house was absolutely wonderful!! The location and views are not to be missed. The stars at night were so special. There are many hikes in the area including the Continental Divide Trail, Ghost Ranch and the Pedernal. The hike to the summit of the Pedernal is worth the trip! We stopped by Bode's for delicious tamales and Christ in the Desert beer on several occasions during our stay. We dined at El Farolito in El Rito after our hike at Plaza Blanca and we found it beyond delicious!! Casa Bonita is our choice for vacations for years to come.

Owner's Response: Nancy,
Thank you and we are so glad you had a great time. You did a lot of the things we love to do except we haven't been to the top of the Pedernal. That needs to go to the top of our list!
We look forward to having you back often!!!
John

QUIET AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for five nights and we could have stayed longer. The home is fully equipped with everything you will need except your food. Absolute serenity, loved it. We loved the view and also the peacefulness of it. We will be back. The only thing we noticed is at Bodies they seem a little ornery, maybe they get a lot of jerky people stop there, who knows, but their breakfast burritos and chile cheeseburgers were delicious.The food that the owner suggests in the guest book in the various cities was excellent food and highly recommended. The view from the home was outstanding.

AMAZING PLACE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just stayed at this wonderful home for a little under a week. Everything that was needed at the house was there. It was very clean and very well maintained. We had a great time just relaxing and are looking forward to a return in the future. Would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to get away.

COUPLE WITH DOGS FROM ALBUQUERQUE

  • 5 of 5
1st time using VRBO but the rental request, owner communication and financial transaction was done very smoothly, all through the VRBO system. Once payment was received, an information packet was sent that contained lots of great info about the house and surrounding area. The packet was sent with more than enough time left to plan the trip, however my wife and I mostly stayed around the property and the Abiquiu area.

The property is tucked away so it is a nice quiet stay but the packet also includes great instructions on how to find and access the property. We had no issues with finding or entering the property, but phone #’s are provided if you need help.

Upon arrival, the property is exactly as described on the VRBO site. The house was a little cold (it was early Feb) and it took several hours for the heated floor system to warm the house. However, we built a fire in the Kiva fireplace and that did a great job of heating the house the 1st night. Wood, kindling and paper/fire starters all provided.

We did not know what to expect for kitchen supplies, so we brought way too much. Things like spices, coffee supplies and cooking utensils are provided and numerous as are condiments and basics in the refrigerator.

We tried to walk our dogs down to the waterfront (about 1 mile away) but could not make it in the rough terrain. We got about half way (including traversing a barbed cattle fence) but had trouble after that. The info packet includes directions on how to drive to the waterfront, which looked like a very short trip, but it was February and we were not too interested in getting to the water.

Overall we had a very quiet and relaxing trip without any surprises. Well worth the trip!!!

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
The house is perfect for those who want every luxury and a terrific view in a remote location. We had a great time - doing as much of nothing as possible, but taking time to draw, run and watch the stars. This is a great place for those who want to really get away!
