Overview

Santa Fe House Rental Photos and Description

6br/4ba sleeps a max. of 12: 1 King bed; 3 Queen beds- 1 in Cabin; 4-5 twin beds

Rass Mandal is a unique adobe vacation residence situated on a mountain range of pine forests with spectacular views. Entering brings you to another time and presents a serene and inspiring atmosphere for all. The house and grounds of more than 10 acres offer abundant locations for quiet time. There are numerous hiking & mountain bike trails immediately accessible, some of which take you directly to the center of Santa Fe.

Rass Mandal was featured on HGTV's House Hunter's on Vacation with the initial airing on June 22nd 2012.

I put up a short clip of the show on YouTube (please paste the link into a new window on your browser): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TU0CS9gJrvs&feature=g-upl

Upon entering the home you encounter a large domed circular living room complete with a fireplace, eastern antique furniture and beautiful views looking out to a pool. This space is ideal for group sessions, gatherings and entertainment. Off to the left of the living room is the dining room and kitchen area. The dining table has room to accommodate 12 and is a great area for entertaining and formal meals. The kitchen is open plan and has a Moroccan style fireplace and a very comfortable breakfast nook ideal for bird watching. Behind the kitchen is a queen size bedroom and a bathroom, secluded from the rest of the house with its own private entrance.

To the right of the living room are guest quarters, each room offers views overlooking the grounds and the entire Santa Fe valley. The master bedroom is complete with a fireplace, a large meditation/work area, beautiful bathroom and sunken Jacuzzi with views. Additionally, there is a 2nd story observation deck that provides expansive views over all of Santa Fe, the Jemez Mountains and beyond. The house is not air conditioned but given the cool evenings it is not actually necessary. Fans are provided should they be desired.

Heading outside, there is a large private pool, jacuzzi style 5 person hot tub, plunge pool and sauna. The pool is heated during the summer months (June 1st - September 30th) - however it is 35,000 gallons and heating is not feasible during the other times. Generally the pool water temperature will be maintained at 78 F in July and August but ranges about 72 F - 74 F for June and September. The hot tub is kept at 102 F all year-round. All this is surrounded by a deck and patio ideal for outdoor dining and relaxation. There is also a gas-fired Fire Pit for enjoyment during the cool evenings. Burn restrictions imposed by Santa Fe County may sometimes restrict its use.

Additionally, there is a small cabin on the property about 150 feet from the main home that may be rented with a small additional fee. The cabin has a queen bed and a bathroom (with a shower) plus a TV. The maximum occupancy for the total residence still remains at 12 people and the cabin rental is usually required for parties of more than 10 people.

Rass Mandal is simply fabulous, providing a truly unique experience in Santa Fe. It's incredible architecture, shapes, and spaces transport one to ancient India yet with all the modern conveniences in an amazingly beautiful location high in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains above the City with spectacular views. While only minutes to the historic Plaza, all the downtown cultural amenities and many fine restaurants, Rass Mandal is a quiet and peaceful retreat not to be missed. I encourage you to read the reviews from our previous guests.

About Richard Woodruff

Hi, my name is Richard Woodruff and I am an American born in Jersey City, NJ and now living in Santa Fe after having spent the last 28 years living in Europe. You can find me on LinkedIn and on Facebook.

Richard Woodruff purchased this house in 2011

Why Richard Woodruff chose Santa Fe

Rass Mandal has unique architecture and is on 10 acres with fabulous unending vistas. It is in the mountains for easy access to hiking and mountain biking yet only about 10 minutes from the center of Santa Fe. The feeling in these hills is truly refreshing and energizing!

What makes this house unique

Staying at Rass Mandal provides a unique atmosphere that is not found at most vacation rentals. The house and grounds offer abundant space for renewal & reflection as well as exercise & sharing.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for sharing your home with us!! We utilized every single amenity you have...from pool, hot tub, sauna, fire pit, yoga room, meditation room, hiking trails...but your sunsets are...Over the Top!!!

Of all the homes we've rented over the years, yours is "by far" the most welcoming. We felt instantly at home...and do not want to leave! The positive energy and relaxing atmosphere put us all in a beautiful place.

One of the most amazing houses in the USA!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough wonderful things about Rass Mandal, it is one of the most beautiful, amazing, gorgeous, stunning homes in America and literally nothing like it in the world. We had a party of 10 for a small wedding weekend and held the wedding in the main Dome of the home, if the weather had been good we would have had it outside since the views are stunning. If you have a party of 12 or less, this is the place to saty, gorgeous, and stunning! We can't say anything bad andthis place is heaven!

Cozy Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

Rass Mandel was gorgeous and perfect for our celebration in honor of our friend about to tie the knot! Thank you Richard for clearing a path through the snow, lighting the fireplace, and welcoming us into this serene home. We enthusiastically recommend this place and have already been spreading the word to friends looking to visit Santa Fe. 5 Stars! (We'd give it 6 if that were possible) :)

Natural Luxury

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for three nights to celebrate a milestone birthday with friends and family. The home was PERFECT to host people for brunch and evening dinners. The amount of bedrooms allowed for some of our friends to stay overnight and enjoy the home with us. Don't forget about the casita! It is adorable and perfect for a couple to spend a few nights.

We loved all the space and all the thought that went into each detail to decorate the entire space. The master bedroom was spacious, comfortable and the lower-level tub was very relaxing. We were able to enjoy the hot tub during our stay, however, the pool was too cold considering it was December.

We absolutely loved the space! The energy on this property is pretty special and we are happy we had the opportunity to enjoy such a unique home. We are looking forward to our next visit in 2015! Thanks Richard for your boundless hospitality.

Thanksgiving at Rass Mandal

  • 5 of 5

My family spent Thanksgiving weekend at Rass Mandal and it was perfect. The home and the grounds were just beautiful, well taken care of and very clean. This unique home was a wonderful gathering spot for the family. Spectacular sunrises and sunsets, many walks on the grounds, hot tub and sauna were used by all of us everyday. The glorious views were enjoyed by all. I highly recommend Rass Mandal and thank you Richard for sharing your home with us. We look forward to a return trip. If you choose to visit Rass Mandal, it is a place you will remember forever.

Amazing, Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Rass Mandall was the best place our group has ever stayed. We have traveled together for years and rent homes all over the country. We have never felt so relaxed. We used the hot tub, sauna and fire pit and yoga room. The sunsets were breathtaking. Richard was a gracious host by giving us a tour when we arrived and having the pantry and refrigerator stocked with basic needs. He was very concerned about our comfort. The home is a one of a kind amazing property. We will be back!!!

Property Different in the City Different!

  • 5 of 5

While I didn't have the opportunity to stay overnight at Rass Mandal, I would certainly consider a stay-cation here in the future. This is a truly magical place with amazing views and sunsets, incredible east Indian inspired architectural elements, and a stunning swimming pool, hot tub and sauna impossibly perched on the mountain side. Rass Mandal adds to the truly unique fabric of Santa Fe, The City Different.

I can say with certainty that the kitchen is awesome! I was hired by New York guests to stock the kitchen with an assortment of requested food items and drinks prior to arrival and to cook and serve a special roast duck birthday dinner. The commercial gas oven accomodates full-size hotel pans and sheets which is perfect for cooking large meals - a caterers dream! The kitchen and dining room are well stocked with all the cooking and serving implements one needs. It was truly magical to cook and serve food in a kitchen with its own fireplace ablaze! I loved conversing the proprietor, Richard Woodruff. He is a true gentleman.

I know I will be back in the future to fulfill food and drink requests for luck guests staying at Rass Mandal. Contact me through Richard and allow me to be of service to you on your next visit.
