Great large house, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a well-equipped house well located for exploring Santa Fe and the area. A twenty minute walk will get you anywhere from Geronimo on upper Canyon Road to the Plaza downtown to Radish & Rye on the west side. Whole Foods is a few minutes away by car and there is a small neighborhood market within a five minute walk. Parking is easy either in the garage (perhaps a chore in the snow) or on the street. The house was clean when we arrived and well stocked with basics. The managers were responsive throughout the entire renting process.

The information and the photographs in the listing are accurate – we found the house to be a little larger than it seemed in the pictures. Perhaps the best feature is the large front porch that spans the entire front. It’s north facing and well shaded and we spent a lot of our time on the comfortable furniture there.

Perfect Home and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house for just over three months and I absolutely loved it. It's a 10 minute walk into town if not less and the neighborhood is safe and pretty. I put a wire fence around the existing front yard wall so my dogs couldn't jump over it and the owner was going to keep it. There's been a comment or two about that. I didn't do the prettiest work but it does the job and I didn't have to watch my dogs like a hawk. The owner was lovely and the property manager was available if I needed. I would absolutely recommend this place.

Santa Fe Style!

  • 4 of 5

This house has great Southwestern look and feel, which is what we were looking for on our too short 5 day stay.The kitchen was well stocked and beautiful, the bathrooms were clean and nicely decorated, and the master bath even included a steam shower. The living room was very comfortable and had a nice stone fireplace with wood provided. However, radiant heating was so efficient it would have made it too hot in the house to light a fire. We ended up turning the heat off some days because climate control (heat) was so good it was getting hot in the house. Big TV with a very nice stereo system was a big plus! Beds were comfortable, location was central, and hot tub was a nice touch (just set the correct temperature when you first arrive).

We loved using Santa Fe as our central location to visit Taos, Bandelier National Monument, Rio Grande Bridge, Kasha-Katue Tent Rocks National Monument, and see a great movie near the train station where you can eat and drink adult beverages! Plus shopping, restaurants, and art galleries in Santa Fe and of course the Georgia O'Keeffe museum.

We stayed there during some pretty good snow events and a crew came each morning and cleaned off the sidewalks and driveway very nicely. However, the driveway is steep and you probably won't be able to get up it if there is snow/ice on it (we couldn't). Also, upon our arrival about 6pm the house had not been cleaned after the previous renters. Apparently there was some miscommunication and after a few phone calls to the manager/owner they had someone come clean the place while we went and ate our dinner (compliments of the owner due to our inconvenience). Hiccups happen sometimes and they were very quick to rectify the problem.

Overall, nice place, nice location, and great town! Would love to come back and visit!

Highly recommend, we will stay again!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable home in a great central location to downtown Santa Fe. This house feels very roomy having over 2000 SF. We never saw the owner during our stay, but he took excellent care of us. It snowed 3 days during our stay and he arranged for the driveway and sidewalks to be cleared by hand daily. We didn't cook during our stay, other than make coffee, but the kitchen is very well stocked. Both TVs in the master bedroom and den are a good size and work great. The house is very well decorated with lots of unique decor. The king size bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable, which is very important to us. The master bath has a huge soaking tub and walk-in shower. We are looking forward to staying in this very comfortable, very well taken care of home in our next visit to charming Santa Fe.
