Stunning, lovely and serene.
George and Donna are amazing hosts. Their home is off the beaten path and overlooks the mountains. We wanted to host a small event there and asked for permission. Not only did they agree, but they asked how they could help. The home is lovely and has plenty of supplies for cooking. Beautiful.patios to enjoy the sunset with.. will be back for sure. Best rental ever.
Charming Retreat with amazing views just 10 minutes outside Santa Fe
Lovely little Casita, very comfortable and welcoming. We had everything we needed to make our stay relaxing. On a rainy day we explored the bookshelves, lots of books of local interest. Location was wonderful for us, easy 10 minute drive downtown Santa Fe. Quiet, woke up to birdsong, sunrises over the mountain. Our stay was for two weeks, the casita made a wonderful home base from which to hike and explore.
Adequate For our needs.
The location of the property was great the views were beautiful and the neighborhood was very quiet and nice. The guest house itself was small but still very warm. We loved the fireplace in the living room. And the owner provided us with enough firewood and kindling to have a fire every night we were there. The clutter in the closet, the bathrooms and the showers made it very uncomfortable. It was hard to unpack anything and put any of our personal hygiene in the bathroom. The kitchen was cluttered but we did squeeze our stuff in there. But the frozen food in the freezer was a little disconcerting. I would think that VRBO would have some kind of rule about leaving leftover food around. The fact that you could not Open the bathroom or closet doors all the way should be an indicator that there was too much stuff about. We would stay here again if we could not find another place.
Quiet beauty in Tesuque
We loved the place and the surtrounding countryside...very close to Santa Fe, but secluded and quiet
Cozy Santa Fe retreat
George and Donna's guest house sweetly welcomed us with a carrot cake and bottle of wine on the dining table, and classical music playing on our arrival. The casita provided what we (two adults and a toddler) wanted which were beautiful mountain and nightime stargazing views, quiet, easy access into town, and all the on-site amenities of W/D, stocked kitchen and applicances. Of note, the directions to the guest house could use some updating as it was a bit like following directions for a scavenger hunt. The Internet is unsecured and was spotty at times. As other reviewers commented on, it is a bit cluttered and dusty. But we liked the uniqueness and homeliness of it, rather than going through a shoe-box management company. We enjoyed our stay!
The home is very cozy, clean and comfortable. Some of the windows wouldn't shut and the WiFi didn't work the entire time we were there but other than that we enjoyed our stay. Great view.
