Overview

New Mexico House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, additional sleeping areas, sleeps up to 10 people

Exquisite regional artwork, antiques, native rugs and artifacts adorn this warm, classic New Mexican adobe home that reveals breathtaking views of the Jemez and Sangre de Christo mountain ranges throughout the house. Built in harmony with the foothills, the home includes multiple living areas, an upper master suite with sunroom, office and jaccuzi, a main level suite with 2 beds (king and double), and a secluded lower level queen suite. New central heat and air installed in 2016. Radiant in-floor heat, five Kiva fireplaces. Our gated home is located at the end of a short driveway with very private and beautifully landscaped walking trails, multiple patios and 4 decks, all on 5 acres.

PRIMARY LIVING AREA:

The main living area is comprised of two large yet cozy rooms, both with large windows and gorgeous views, that share a wrap-around kiva fireplace. Comfortable leather sofas and easy chairs, a grand piano, and a 55” LG flatscreen TV and entertainment center, make this part of the house a wonderful secluded gathering place away from the bedrooms.

DINING & COOKING:

The heavy wooden dining table seating six to eight people, separates the kitchen from yet another sunken living area with fireplace, a large day bed and comfortable seating. You’ll find plenty of dishes, flatware and serving pieces, mugs, bowls and glasses, all indigenous to the area. The galley kitchen has tiled countertops, pots and pans hanging from the ceiling, and of all the amenities a person who loves cooking would want.

SLEEPING ACCOMODATIONS:

Master Bedroom: A grand artisan staircase leads from the living areas to a room with spectacular views. Large individual windows wrap around a king size bed that looks on to a kiva fireplace and master jacuzzi bath with picture-window. The large cushioned built-in bench with table and 2 chairs overlooking the Jemez Mountains, makes it the perfect place for breakfast or coffee indoors. As well, this bedroom has private access to the office and sunroom which offer more spectacular views, a large daybed and rollaway.

Main Level Bedroom: Situated on the main floor off the dining room, this bedroom suite has a king bed, kiva fireplace and large flatscreen TV with sitting area. Large windows that surround the bed afford wonderful views of the Sangre de Christo mountains to the east. A half-wall separates an additional double bed from the rest of the suite. The chess table and chairs looking onto the private porch complete the room.

Lower Level Bedroom: Located downstairs, this queen bed and large shower with bench offer extreme privacy from the rest of the house with it’s own private porch area.

Sunken Room: Located off the dining room on the main floor is a large daybed and fireplace.

OUTDOORS:

Upper Level: Off the upper master suite, you’ll find a small patio with a table for 2, perfect for coffee. From there, stairs lead to the rooftop deck. Once there you will experience the magic of a 360º degree view spanning 4 mountain ranges. Our home is just far enough away from the city lights to experience the majesty of the universe after dark, as well as a full view of Los Alamos. Comfortable folding chairs and a warm chiminea complete the experience.

Main Level: (1) Outside the entertainment living room is a large deck that leads to a huge open fireplace. Plenty of seating, a dining table with umbrella, two grills and views facing west make this a wonderful place for breakfast or dinner. Large reclining lounge chairs and ample sun allow for laying in the sun year-round. (2) On the other side of the house is a beautiful enclosed private courtyard with multiple seating options, much like you would expect to find on a quaint cottage off Canyon Rd. From here, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains can be seen in the distance. (3) Outside of the main level bedroom suite is a large jacuzzi tub and private deck nestled in the trees, again with ample seating.

Lower Level: French doors in the Lower Level Bedroom open on to a private treed area.

Complementary pinion wood is stacked just outside the front door under a covered portico.

This is a home you simply must experience for yourself. We believe that all the 5 star reviews speaks for us as well.

Because many of the handmade, original art pieces are within a child’s reach, we discourage families with young children staying in our home.

Magical place to get away in Santa Fe.

  • 5 of 5

This home is so unique and allows wonderful privacy for visitors, plenty of places to sit and soak up the beauty. Everything was perfect. The kitchen is

small and the areas can be confusing to find at first but that add to its charm.

Try to see the Cave Diggers site not far away - amazing!

Unbelievable Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

It is almost impossible to sum up our FABULOUS stay at Casa de Musica in a few sentences. My husband and I were looking to get away from the craziness of life for a week. Well, we definitely found the perfect spot. From the moment we drove up, we were in love. The house is just amazing. We enjoyed every minute of exploring all of the rooms on all three of the levels. This property has SO much to offer and the owners and caretakers are the BEST to work with. The fireplaces in each room are wonderful. The views are breathtaking. The beds are amazingly comfortable....at times, I swear the beds were even bigger than a king size. And the nooks....I lost count on how many there were in this house. We enjoyed many days of finding a nook and reading or playing games. The Jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom upstairs is the most relaxing area ever with an awesome view. The house is equipped with everything that you need for your stay! The views from the rooftop are amazing as well. You almost forget that you can drive into Santa Fe in just a few minutes, which was also wonderful. We ventured into town a few times for groceries and to go to downtown to shop. We enjoyed many evenings having dinner at the house and taking in the views and the quiet atmosphere. My husband and I have been to many places and this house by far was the MOST RELAXING and AMAZING place that we have ever stayed! We are counting down the days until we go back to Casa de Musica!!!!!!

Santa Fe Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Well this was our 3rd year in a row and we can't wait for our 4th, 5th, and so on! It's the perfect getaway. Everything you need to survive a week or so is provided there. I love to wake up with cup of coffee, my book, and sole in the view from the roof top deck. The house is decorated beautifully, you really get inspired by the Santa Fe flare all around. And the PILLOWS!! My neck really appreciates a good vacation as well. I can't wait for our kids to grow up and say 'Let's go to Santa Fe!'

Beautiful house, Spectacular views - Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at Casa de Musica several times and highly recommend this property. The location is perfect - perched up on a hill with views of all the mountain ranges, yet close to town and other area attractions. The home is very luxurious and filled with personal touches and unique New Mexican decor throughout. We love the multi-level layout where there is a beautiful deck on one side with a fireplace, grill and hot tub, and then a garden courtyard on the other side. But our favorite outdoor spot is on top of the roof where the views are beyond amazing - there is even a chiminea fireplace on the roof! Each room has a kiva fireplace - and there is plenty of piñon pine (and the fragrance of piñon is wonderful). There is nothing better than sitting in the courtyard in the morning drinking coffee as the sun comes up, or sitting on the deck in the evening to watch the amazing sunset over the mountains. One thing we’ve noticed is that in the high desert air, things are so quiet and peaceful. It’s so nice to sit outside at night with a fire going and just look at the stars.

The owners and management are fantastic - great communication and lots of tips on restaurants, local hikes and sightseeing. Each time we have stayed at Casa de Musica, the house has been completely clean and ready to go. We highly recommend this property and can’t wait to go back!

October getaway for three couples

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent destination home. Much better than even anticipated.

We used it as a launch for visiting Santa Fe, the Balloon Fest in Albuquerque and sight seeing throughout the area. Ending each evening cooking out, visiting by fire pit, and enjoying magnificent sunsets. I highly recommend this property. A slight word of caution: the house has many steps, and different levels. We had a few near misses and a couple of bumps. We are three couples in late 60's.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Views were fantastic, home was beautiful with spacious bedrooms. Perfect getaway for those that want to divide their time between being together, but having the opportunity for quiet time away from the rest of the group. Many nooks for reading, writing or surfing the net. Small kitchen, as noted by many other reviewers, was not a problem for us, but does not allow for complicated meal preparation - and who wants to do that on vacation anyway? The owners are the best! I have rented a lot on VRBO and this was the best experience I have ever had. Hope to go back someday soon!
