About Sally Howard

I purchased 304 when the owner told me he was going to sell. I'd been visiting Santa Fe for about 3 years and always stayed in 304. It took me seconds to make the decision.

I typically drive to Santa Fe once a year around April/May and spend a month and then in either Sept/Oct or Christmas I'll fly down for a shorter visit. I cannot imagine just visiting once - there is so much to see and do. One of my best times was when I walked from Alameda and St. Francis through neighborhoods and the city taking pictures of Santa Fe 'art'...doors, gates, fences, mailboxes. It's amazing how art permeates every inch of Santa Fe. Don't miss the overpasses and retaining walls on Highway 84/285 going North.

I live in Boise, Id, most of the time, and moved in 1970 from St. Louis. It became home the minute I arrived. When I'm asked 'where did you grow up' and standard reply is 'I grew up in Boise and moved there when I was 30'. It's so true! Santa Fe and Boise are oddly similar in weather and convenience. Boise also has a ski area 16 miles away and great outdoor activities. I recommend visiting Boise too.

Sally Howard purchased this condo in 1993

Why Sally Howard chose New Mexico

It's home, it's comfortable and it's convenient! DeVargas Mall is just across the highway has everything you need - grocery store, Hastings, great Pizza shop, movie theater, dress shops, drug store, excellent restaurants, etc. Taos, Opera and Tesuque are just north.

I've made it 304 home and hope you'll feel the same. If there is something more that you think it needs just let me know.

What makes this condo unique

My favorite thing about 304 is the balcony and the view. I have seen more rainbows from the balcony in Santa Fe then all of the rest of my life combined. The cloud formations that pass over are truly amazing. Oddly, I like the original wood furniture (dining table, coffee table). I'm comfortable putting my feet on the coffee table. I've taken the old dining room chairs and put them on the balcony for extra seating.

Very nice property and super location. Would not hesitate to stay again or recommend to family and friends. Nicely stocked and attention to detail is very apparent. Makes for a great vacation hide away.

Owner's Response: Every time I read a wonderful review I want to hop on a plane and get back there! Thank you for appreciating my Santa Fe home. I try to make it comfortable for me and my guests. I'm sure I will be doing quite a bit of "stocking" when I'm there in November. Come back soon and remind me you're a returning guest!

Wonderful In Every Way

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in this lovely condo. We love having morning coffee and evening wine on the balcony. We visited our two favorite breakfast places which are Clafoutis and New York Deli and found a wonderful new place for lunch on Canyon Road ---The Teahouse. This condo is clean, has everything you need, location is perfect and working with Sally is a breeze. We love everything about this beautiful place.

Owner's Response: I love my returning travelers! Thank you so much. Isn't it sad that Clafoutis moved. Fortunately, it is so good that it is worth the drive. I also go to the New York Deli and love their Vanilla Latta. I'm anxious to checkout the Teahouse. It must be new?! I'm hoping it will still be warm enough to enjoy the balcony when I finally get their the end of October. Come back soon.

A Relaxing Southwestern Home imparting the culture of Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We have booked Cielo Grande property several times now and feel so at home. Always clean and fresh with beautiful art and colors of the southwest throughout the Condo. The layout is cozy and versatile for 4 people. We enjoy cooking so the kitchen has everything we needed to make a good size meal.We loved the large dining table which is nice to dine and enjoy a fire in the Kiva fireplace. We love to read so lots of comfortable chairs and lighting to read by. There is a nice outdoor bar-b que area and also no stairs to climb as there is an elevator which was very convenient. We love it

Owner's Response: I think you have re-visited more than anyone else...thank you! It's so nice to know that the complete kitchen is used. I love all the Santa Fe restaurants but I also like a little home cooking and staying-in. It would not be fun to climb to the 3 floor each time I went out, particularly, moving in and out. I appreciate that elevator too! Come back soon!

Birthday Weekend in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend in Santa Fe. The property was very clean, comfortable, well appointed and the location was excellent--- only a mile and a half from the plaza and exceedingly convenient for the Santa Fe Opera as well. Sally was very helpful and available for communication. She is a great VRBO owner to work with as she offers suggestions on what to do, where to eat and she's readily available. I highly recommend her rental.

Owner's Response: It really is all about location. It is so convenient to the Santa Fe Opera - a very special, world class, opera house. I have a wonderful housekeeper that looks after my condo like her own home. I'll be there soon to make sure it is well stocked with everything one needs to have an enjoyable visit. Thank you for taking the time to do the wonderful review.
