RASS MANDAL - 10 ACRES, POOL, SAUNA, HOT TUB - GLORIOUS VIEWS - FEATURED ON HGTV

Santa Fe House Rental Photos and Description

5br/3ba sleeps a maximum 12 (1 King bed; 2 Queen beds; 6 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 with waterfall, hot tub 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 74 F - 76 F for June and September. The hot tub is kept at 104 F. 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.

Additionally, there is a small cabin on the property about 200 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. The maximum occupancy for the residence still remains at 12 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.

Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to inhabit this lovely home and enjoying the breathtaking views - we will return as soon as possible to absorb more of what lies up in these gorgeous mountains and in your beautiful home. Thank you again - Namaste,

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!

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.

AN AMAZING OASIS

  • 5 of 5
This was an amazing place for 8 women to gather and just enjoy the beauty of the property, the home and the peaceful feeling at Rass Mandal. The yoga time was exquisite and it is so beautifully equipped, everything needed is there. Staying there was stress free in terms of arrival and interacting with the owner, who was very supportive and invested in our enjoying ourselves. A truly exquisite experience from home to property to pool, jacuzzi and sauna. Everything needed for perfect relaxation. Thanks so very much

FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
Our family’s stay at Rass Mandal for a recent reunion—grandparents, parents, young children—was a lovely experience for all of us. Gathering from Washington, D.C., Maryland, Colorado, and Oregon, we found the compound to be a grand mixture: exotic and richly textured while at the same time inviting and welcoming. A serene mountainside retreat, Rass Mandal offers both solitude and a communal experience. From morning yoga sessions at the pavilion to afternoons at poolside to meals at its large dining table, Rass Mandal provided everything our family could hope for to ensure a happy and satisfying get-together. We’ll remember our time there fondly for many years.

BEAUTIFUL, RELAXING, BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I chose Rass Mandal as the locale for celebrating my brother's graduation from St. John's College. We had family flying in from all over the country for this momentous occasion and we wanted to make sure that everyone had a comfortable place to sleep, eat, rest, and relax. Rass Mandal exceeded our expectations for ALL of the above!!! We had an AMAZING time swimming in the pool, hanging out in the hot tub, relaxing in the sauna. My sister spent every morning in the adorable meditation nook upstairs, which was GORGEOUS. There were a lot of us staying in the house, but somehow we all could find space for alone time if we needed because this house was HUGE. My nieces also found the house to be perfect for hide-and-seek!! The kitchen was beautiful and well-stocked with all the equipment we needed to cook up delicious meals. We also found that we spent a lot of time hanging out in the breakfast nook!

Another plus was the location of the house - it was no more than a 10 minute drive to all of the places that we wished to go.

Overall, Rass Mandal was the perfect location to celebrate my brother's accomplishments. We are already planning another excuse to go to Santa Fe so we can stay here again!

THIS HOME IS TRULY PERFECTION FOR CELEBRATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
Rass Mandal is an incredibly unique property with everything a group could want or need for a memorable retreat. This trip was a very special birthday celebration for a dear friend. We wanted this girls trip to be a one of a kind experience for all...and it certainly was.
The home is just remote enough that we didn't feel like we were in a tourist mecca but close enough to town for the times we wanted to explore. We were perfectly happy hanging out together, enjoyed the hot tub and sauna (too cold to swim in the pool) cooked, had plenty of space for art projects or to sneak away for an afternoon nap.
The grounds are stunning, with interesting sculptures and resting placed to take in the gorgeous views. The house looks and feels like a sacred palace in a foreign land but with western amenities at every turn. The kitchen is the perfect gathering place to create group meals or to enjoy quiet time in the cozy nook that over looks the pool area.
We loved the main room at night with the fire roaring as the top notch sound system played our favorite music. The lighting in this room is amazing. I simply cannot describe how beautiful the dome and stained glass windows glistened as the sun set or in candlelight. The hallway glows with the sapphire blue lighting. Just stunning!!
We loved the luscious bath products and incredible selection of spices/oils and vinegars that were ours to enjoy. OK, I have to get back to the kitchen....it is stocked with literally every cooking utensil, pot/pan, serving pieces, china and glassware that you could ever need. We decorated the dinner table each night and didn't make a dent in the options.

Thank you Richard for taking such great care of us. You delivered everything we had hoped for and more. I cannot wait to come back here with my family!!

GREAT VIEWS; EXQUISITE AMENITIES; SPACIOUS.

  • 5 of 5
Rass Mandal was a special place for a reunion for 10. The location was only 15 or so minutes from the center of town. The home was spacious with 3 full baths 2 with showers. The kitchen was the best equipped I have ever experienced. While the home was one floor there were several step downs between rooms; but the halls were well lit. The beds were ready and there were plenty of towels, soaps and even shampoo. The dining area, silverware and plates accommodated our large group with ease and grace.
The outdoor area was spectacular with multiple levels for swimming, dining, sunbathing, and just relaxing.
We would definitely return; but, would stay longer. Highly recommended.

SURPRISE BIRTHDAY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing place to spend the weekend! We flew in from Miami, FL to surprise my boyfriends father for his 66th birthday and it was all worth it!! This place is magical, has amazing views, and I would definitely come back. Also, I loved the smell of this wonderful house. Remember that the nose is the gateway to memories! I highly recommend this beautiful palace! Until next time! :)
