About the property

3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

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 high ceilings.

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 7-8) 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, and 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 two twin beds.

This house is a wonderful place to hang out and create new memories with friends and 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.

Cozy home for our family winter trip!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully and thoughtfully designed home for our family's winter trip in late January. The heaters worked amazingly well - loved the heated floors throughout the house - such a luxury. Speaking of luxury, the sheets and bedding were so comfortable. Like a 5 star hotel. The home is in a great location for walking downtown, nearby parks, and a couple restaurants. Nice little stroll to the Cross of Martyrs and Fort Marcy, which was a fun historical outing for us with our toddler. Easy to get to the Plaza and surrounding downtown areas. Parking was convenient - you can fit two big SUV's or vans in the driveway so we never had to deal with street parking. Everything in the home worked great and made for a cozy stay. This is a fantastic rental home with wonderful, easy to work with homeowners. We hope to come back one day in the summer!

The Artist’s Retreat was a great home base for our family’s recent trip to Santa Fe.

  • 5 of 5

The house is modern and stylish, while still giving you the southwestern vibe. It is roomy and well appointed. The beds were very comfortable with luxurious linens.

Wonderful Place, Great Location

Perfect 5 days in Santa Fe; total fulfillment of all our expectations

  • 5 of 5

The stay was a wonderful experience for us and our kids. The house was just perfect – plenty of space, nicely furnished and decorated, comfortable and nicely situated just a convenient short walk from downtown. Everything was state of the art and worked perfectly. We were also very impressed with the attention to detail in the bathrooms and kitchen that left nothing wanting. The owners were very hospitable providing useful advice on things to do and where to eat in town and making it known that they were available to assist us as needed. We couldn’t be happier with everything about this stay.
