Overview

New Mexico House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Office, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our sanctuary is available to individuals, couples, or families to rent. The house is very quiet and within a very brief walk to total wilderness. Everything around the house is landscaped. Three bedrooms and the office/studio are furnished with eclectic and beautiful amenities. The house has a washer and dryer, three fire places, and exercise equipment available as well.

The Saltillo-tiled living room, media room, and dining room, all have high ceilings and are very comfortable. The media room has a great fireplace (and stacked wood), large screen TV, stereo receiver/radio with mini-jack setup. The dining room has a very large table with 8 chairs,

The master bedroom has fireplace and bathroom with two sinks, large jacuzzi bathtub, and separate shower.

The second and third bedroom share a bathroom with tub/shower. The fourth bedroom is currently set up to be an office/library but things can be reconfigured easily.

There is a portal with a brick patio, outdoor fire place, outdoor furniture and spectacular views of the Sangre de Cristos and the sunset. The front of the house offers a view onto the Sandias, a rocking chair that seats two and two hammocks for eating or hanging outdoors.

There are walkways around the entire house within the beautiful landscaping. The property sits just minutes from BLM land and miles and miles of open space.

There is cable TV and high speed internet access.

About Michael Kaufman

My wife and I purchased this beautiful home and lived in it for five years.

Michael Kaufman purchased this house in 2004

Why Michael Kaufman chose New Mexico

This was our home and we're now looking to share it with others.

What makes this house unique

The beauty of the surrounding landscape and 360 degree views are spectacular. The house has sunrise and sunset views and the skies are gorgeous nearly every day. The wilderness areas nearby have great hiking - and the herd of elk in the BLM land is a great treat. The silence and stillness is compelling and very impacting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed very much the home. Our needs were met with the extras of beautiful sunsets, pure air and a shopping mall not far away I would highly recommend it to others.

Great location, great house.

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent house and location and would recommend this stay to anyone. It had great views of the mountains and a quite environment. The Kaufman's provided plenty of information about the house, area restaurants and other points of interest.

Felt like I was staying at a friend's house

  • 5 of 5

As a former VRBO property owner and client at various locations I was impressed with the property. You can tell when someone uses their own unit because it is furnished with nice furniture and decorations and appliances. As a cook I appreciated sharp knives, cutting boards, plenty of pots and pans and utensils, variety of coffee makers etc. The clothes washing machine and kitchen appliances are top line; i.e. LG, Kitchenaide, Bosch etc. There was a huge master bedroom and bath with a walk in closet and a 2 car garage which I appreciated because I had a pickup full of my daughters valuables we were moving across country and could securely park out of the sun. The back porch was pleasant with nice views of the desert and privacy where you do not notice any neighbors. It is my own preference, but I was surprised not to find a TV in the master bedroom, however it is not my house. The front landscape is plush within the gated area and we had a flock of humming bird moths come around at dusk to feed on the flowers. One morning I woke up and watched a coyote stroll by the bedroom window just before dawn. In June we found no need for any heat or air conditioner because the daily afternoon winds would warm the house and with the windows opened all night it would cool off comfortably.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is impeccablely decorated in surprisingly comfortable style. The views are great - and those views drew us to the back deck area every night we were there. Enjoyed the local rabbits, geckos, and other wildlife. And the birds sang to us from sunup to sundown. The kitchen was well equipped and we ate in several meals comfortablely. Santa Fe was wonderful and Chimayo and Taos were fun adventures. The owner provided great and useful information in advance of our arrival. The three of us enjoyed our getaway and would recommend this stop to anyone.

Beautiful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! The house was even better than pictured, with lovely decor and thoughtful touches throughout. It easily accommodated our family of 6. Living in a city, we were happy to be a short distance from Santa Fe. We enjoyed the quiet, the stars, and the many birds.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The Four of us just loved staying at this home. The house and the desert setting were wonderful ! We saw a beautiful sunset. The deep whirl pool tub was enjoyed and the beds were divinely comfortable.
