About Shelley Goldman

I always loved vacationing in New Mexico. For over 15 years i spent one of my vacations exploring this beautiful state. It has so much to offer.

Shelley Goldman purchased this condo in 2007

Why Shelley Goldman chose New Mexico

For many years I dreamed of owning a property in New Mexico. Of all the beautiful places I visited in New Mexico, I chose the Tesuque, Santa Fe location. I stayed in this condo on one of my vacations as a rental. I found out is was for sale. Something felt right to me. Maybe it was the rainbow that I saw from my front patio my last day there. The location was perfect - close to Santa Fe but not in Santa Fe. I could take advantage of everything Santa Fe had to offer but also enjoy the quiet an beauty of the landscape. I made an offer two weeks after my return to my life in New York. It took a couple of months but soon enough it was mine!

What makes this condo unique

Location. location, location and nice pool!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely Casita in a perfect location...

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed 9/6 - 9/12/2016 in this casita located on the outskirts of Santa Fe - about 10-15 minutes from the downtown "Plaza". It is equipped with all the conveniences of home. Loved the southwest decor - 2 kiva's (one in family room, other in master bedroom). Unfortunately it wasn't cold enough to use the kiva's - maybe next time! Very large patio to enjoy a nice and relaxing evening after a busy day of sight-seeing and shopping. The community heated pool was a very nice "plus". We definitely recommend this casita to anyone who is interested in vacationing in Santa Fe. If you want to stay in a place that is close to everything, but yet far enough away from traffic and noise to be able to relax and soak in the beauty of your surroundings, then this casita is perfect for you!

We just returned from our 3 night stay at this gorgeous casita. It had everything we needed. Including extra coffee in freezer, cleaning supplies, soap in bathrooms, plenty of product refills. The owner also had a great notebook of local restaurants and things to do and see. There is great hiking with beautiful views-leave right from the front door. The decor was great and we were very comfortable. I would highly recommend!!

very clean and spacious

  • 4 of 5

the unit is very clean and in a very good location across form the Four Seasons Hotel. The unit is spacious and they have kept it in good condition but its in need of a refresh as its showing its age. The bathrooms need to be completely redone. Owner was very responsive in providing us access and directions.

Owner's Response: Hello Thank you for your review. The bathrooms are scheduled to be redone this year! I trust your stay was fine otherwise. Best regards Shelley

Tesuque Condo: Cozy, Convenient and Charming

  • 4 of 5

This 2-bedroom, 2-bath casita was just what we had hoped for: comfortable beds, tasteful decor, a beautiful view, a nice kitchen, and a convenient location--within a ten-minute drive of the Santa Fe Plaza. In addition, this location allows quick access to the highways that connect to many scenic and historic places in Northern New Mexico such as Taos, the Jemez Mountains, Abiquiu, and more. Shelley, the owner, is easy to work with and she provided a binder full of helpful information about nearby restaurants and activities.

Great, quiet location well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

This a great casita! We found it well-equipped and in a wonderful, quiet location. There were plenty of clean towels, nice bedding, kitchen items, books and movies. It was very easy for us to get to the Plaza as well as on the interstate for traveling around New Mexico. There's a beautiful apple tree on the property that was overflowing with deliciousness when we visited and the patio had many beautiful birds and lizard visitors. Shelley, the owner, was available to answer questions and was happily accommodating. I prefer dealing with the actual owner over properties with property management- easy, friendly and less add-on fees.
