About the property

3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

This house is the ARTISTS' RETREAT.

It is just blocks for the Plaza, yet removed from the chaos. Contemporary Santa Fe Style home with hand plastered walls, beams and all the details.

The centerpiece is a jewel like great room that is surrounded by the gourmet kitchen, a cozy dining area, and a large flagstone patio. The patio has mature Aspen trees and an incredible double sided fireplace that connects through to the great room.

This three-bedroom home (sleeps 6-7) has a large master suite with attached roof deck offering views of the Sangre and Jemez mountain ranges - delightful. The suite also has a spa-like bathroom with large steam shower, an over-sized jetted tub and a fabulous travertine vanity for two. The guest suite has great morning light, a terrace with views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and a large en-suite bathroom. The third bedroom is a studio with its own bathroom, sitting area, small kitchen and loft like high ceilings. This bedroom can sleep 2-4 people with a full bed and a queen futon.

This home is a great solution for your Santa Fe vacation. It is perfect for 3 couples or a large family.

You also are going to love its location. It is an easy walk to the plaza (shops and restaurants) and Canyon Road (galleries galore). The plaza is 5 blocks and Canyon Road is 7 blocks away.

We live in the same neighborhood and really love it. Quiet, convenient and safe. We would not live anywhere else.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Sandra & Justin, we have fallen in love with Artist Retreat! Thank you for opening your home to us. The detail and design of the house is AMAZING. We have rented from VRBO all over the world and this spot is one of our most favorites.!GRACIAS! We want to talk to you about returning in a few months and about long term rental next summer. We are also interested in your other properties. Thank you kindly for everything. We truly had an AWESOME time. SM, BM, E, OK.

This home was perfect in terms of location, cleanliness. family friendliness and newness of furnishings. No carpet which is ideal for allergy sufferers. Top of line finishes and fixtures throughout. Super cool design and layout. Downstairs unit was great for kids with their own tv sofas bed and bath plus small frig. Still connected to rest of house so adults could easily supervise. Checkin was a breeze and owners were very friendly. Visitors guide was very detailed and helpful. This home was the cleanest of any I have ever rented of any age. Would highly recommend.

This was our second time to stay at this location. We love it here. It is walking distance to the square and an easy drive up to ski. It is a lovely place to come home to after a day of skiing and enjoy either the steam shower or Jacuzzi tub. Sandra and Justin are wonderful to work with! Hope to come back soon!

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I came to Santa Fe to ski in some of the best snow in years and we were fortunate enough to be able to stay here. We have stayed in several VRBO properties over the years, but I think this one wins as the best! It was just perfect! Convenient to both the plaza and the ski area, beautifully furnished, spotless, and an all-around wonderful place to stay. The teenagers were thrilled with the house! The owners left a comprehensive guide to everything they love about Santa Fe--very helpful. I highly recommend it and I hope we get to return!

five friends stayed for 4 nights to celebrate our big birthday year. We had a fabulous time. This townhouse is beautiful, in a quiet neighborhood but close to Plaza. It was great to walk the area. Views from the master terrace were amazing. The patio was very nice and had some shade as well. Beds were all very comfortable. We shopped a lot and loved the Artist Retreat and Sante Fe. We all highly recommend it

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed and great beds! We had a fun girls weekend (5 of us) and this was perfect. Very close to shopping and restaurants, and the owners provided a wonderful book with great info and directions. The patios were wonderful for coffee in the morning, cocktails in the evening.

3 Generations LOVED this Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Artist Retreat the week before Christmas. I was a little nervous sending payment before seeing the house, but the pictures are all accurate and it is even better in person! We have a vacation home in another state and I have to say the owners have certainly thought about everything you might need when staying in this home! In fact, I wished I could transport this home to our location I loved it so much! It was a terrific layout for multiple generations; the attached (lower level)apartment was great for our college kids and gave them some space and privacy and us a break when needed! Our parents had a room of their own and my husband and I took the master suite (Awesome!). The only regret was that the weather was not warmer so we could enjoy the patio off the master, but the views were terrific from upstairs and the outside patio with see thru fireplace was a wonderful treat for the outside. This fireplace really put off some heat inside and out, unlike some that are just for looks. The in-floor radiant heat was a wonderful way to heat the condo, I was worried that with all the windows it could be cold in the winter. Not so, in fact we never needed to adjust the heat! We cooked in all but one night and had everything we needed for meal prep, and ran to Trader Joes and Albertson's for food. The guidebook Sandra and Justin provided gave you all of the details needed, and walking into the plaza was a short walk (uphill partway on the way back) but very easy walk. I would love to return to this home in another season, and know you will enjoy! I would rent any of their properties when returning to Santa Fe!
