Overview

About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 bath, Sleeps 14 (can accommodate up to 15, see description)

Our 3,300 sq. ft. vacation home is located on the west side of beautiful Santa Fe, with easy access to freeways. A very convenient location makes it a short drive to the historic downtown Plaza area, famous Canyon Rd, the Santa Fe Opera, shopping, movie theaters, rock climbing, mountain biking and fantastic hiking in the beautiful Sangre de Cristo mountains. The house is situated on 5 acres of beautiful high desert landscape including lots of pinon and juniper trees. The home was custom built in 1980 by my family and recently renovated.

The home features four large bedrooms with one having a nursery area (crib, swing & baby toys) and a large basement. A fully stocked kitchen with double oven, dishwasher, microwave, crockpot, adjacent to a dining area with a large table (seating up to nine plus high chair) and large picture window facing the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, makes it perfect for enjoying meals with family and friends. Between four large bedrooms and a finished basement that serves as a fifth sleeping area, the house will accommodate between 8-15 people on 2 king size beds, 2 queen size beds, 2 sets of twin bunk beds, full size roll away bed, and crib.

Have your own tournament of ping pong on the full size table in the basement or on our new foosball table in the living room. The first and second floors boast 3 balconies that provide a beautiful view of the mountains on one side and breathtaking sunsets on the other. After a long day of shopping or hiking, enjoy conversation lounging on the large patio just outside the living room. Warm yourself around the fire pit or gaze up at the stars while sitting in your own private hot tub. The outdoor living space includes a large sectional and seating area that sits up to 14 people and surrounds a brand new propane fire pit. Enjoy grilling? We just installed a brand new gas grill and hooked it up the natural gas so all you have to do is turn it on! Two outdoor tables with umbrellas are perfect for your outdoor BBQ

Want to keep up with the news, or catch the game? No problem, we have TV’s in every bedroom with DirectTV. The family room has a larger 60" TV with DVD player. Go a little old school and check out some of our classic VHS movies. And of course, free unlimited WiFi internet access. Full size washer and dryer if you need them. This is the perfect home for a family or larger groups.

Tell us what you need and we will do our best to accommodate you! We are very knowledgeable about Santa Fe and local attractions!

About Jason Patty

Hello! My name is Jason and my wife is Christal. We have renovated my family home as a vacation rental to help finance my mother's medical care since 2012. We feel blessed to have such a wonderful home that we can share with others!

Jason Patty purchased this house in 1980

Why Jason Patty chose Santa Fe

Whether you have a large group, multiple families or just a few of you, we think you will enjoy our property. The house is set up to provide a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere with lots of room both indoors and outdoors. Since the house sits on five acres, you wont be bumping elbows with the neighbors. You will enjoy being just on the edge of the city but yet just a few minutes away from everything Santa Fe has to offer.

What a wonderful house for our family of 8!

  • 5 of 5

Great location- lovely house- very spacious and comfortable beds!! The hot tub was great and views from multiple decks and patios. Very well stocked kitchen! With 6 adults and 2 teens-- everyone had their private space and wonderful large 3 bathrooms to accommodate the group. Sits on large property, so plenty of privacy. Multiple televisions and great wifi connection. Couldn't ask for more. Wonderful instructions for everything you need to know and recommendations for great restaurants.

Should be advertised as sleeps 8-10, dirty and no air conditioning

  • 1 of 5

Positives. This property has a good view and is secluded which was nice. The landscaping is well done and beautiful. The hot tub and fire pit outside were enjoyable. The bathrooms were well decorated. And three of the four bedrooms were nicely outfitted.

Negatives. Our group had 11 people and were hard pressed to all fit comfortably. There are technically enough beds for 16, but these arrangements are not practical. There are not enough beds for this, for one thing, and then there are not accomodations for all of these people. The table comfortably fits 8 and the living room seats 7, there are only three bathrooms. Overall this should be advertised as 8-10 people.

When we first moved in there was an overall dirty environment. This was most prevalent in the set of sheets that had bodily fluid on them but was also seen in the unswept/unvacuumed floors. There was also wall paper peeling and a hole in the wall. And many lightbulds in the house were burnt out.

Air conditioner not existing should be highlighted in the description. In looking back I see that others have mentioned this in their comments, but I missed this before booking the house. Santa Fe does cool in the nights but even on spring break this place got uncomfortably warm and took a while to cool down.

The technology in the house is very outdated. There are many VHS but we could never get the VCR to conext to the TV. The wifi was very very slow.

Finally the kitchen was less than expected. Our group had a hard time fitting everything into the cabinets because of the accumulated items (e.g. three coffee pots). Meanwhile this kitchen lacked some things that were expected (e.g. scissors, bowls, and aluminum foil). Also one of the ovens did not work.

Overall our experience was less than desired. It was adequate for basic living but disappointing overall.

Owner's Response: We are very sad that this guest did not have a good experience while staying in our home. We rely greatly on the feedback of our guests to help us improve in any area that we can. It is our goal to create an environment that facilitates a great experience while in our home. Realistically, we know that every person/group has different expectations and tastes and try as we might, we wont always be able to please everyone completely. While we welcome feedback, sometimes, as in this case, I must refute many of the comments mentioned in this gentleman's review. First, we have hosted may large groups with many more guests than this, with great success. We try to ensure guests understand the layout of the house and the sleeping arraignments. We encourage them to ask questions so they know this. We ALWAYS have our cleaning staff clean between guest, no less than five hours. Every bed, towel, toilet, etc is cleaned. I am very critical of this personally. Yes there was a small baseball size hole in the wall behind a bedroom door left from the previous guests rambunctious teenagers. This has since been fixed. We try to be mindful of light bulbs that burn out, but if we miss some or if they burn out while a guest is in the house, we keep plenty of them in the laundry room cabinet which are accessible to guests. The house DOES have air-conditioning (evaporative cooling), but since it was late winter when this guest was staying, and overnight temperatures were still dipping below freezing, we didn't have the system de-winterized yet. Concerning technology, we have a TV and Direct TV cable in every living space and bedroom of the house. Our WiFi is provided by Century Link and is the fastest unlimited service you can get in Santa Fe. We thought guests might enjoy some vintage movies on VHS so we kept many of them in the house as an option, but maybe I will remove those now. I'm not sure how to address this guests dissatisfaction with kitchen, it is very well equipped and has been a strong point among many of our reviews. So concerning reviews, if you are a potential future guest I hope you will take notice to the many five star reviews (prior to and after this guests stay) and if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask. We really do care about your vacation time and put a lot of effort into this house. We are constantly trying to add new upgrades and features to make your stay the most relaxing, enjoyable time it can be.

Definitely a come back!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous vacation home for a family. We had a wonderful time! The home was decorated for Christmas with a tree and lights. It was as if we were at home, there wasn''t anything that we needed. Beautifully decorated, well laid out, plenty of space for everyone. It was cold during our stay there but we were nice and cozy with the fireplace and heater. Jason and Patty were accessible at all time with any questions we had. I highly recommend it!

Spacious home and plenty of room to walk around on 5 acres. Quiet and peaceful.

  • 3 of 5

Home needs updating and some major repair work.

The water leak in the upstairs bathroom goes through to the main floor and needs to be fixed. The door to the deck has a hole that causes a draft. There are several light fixtures needing repair and other light bulbs needing replacement, which would brighten the kitchen and living area. The lower level is best used for recreation and not a sleeping area. One of the upstairs queen beds in the room with the beautiful crib is worn out and needs replacing. The other beds were fine.

The kitchen is well stocked. The hot tub is wonderful and the fire pit on the deck is great for roasting marshmallows. The big bean bag chair was in high demand by young and old alike. The home was adequate for our basic needs.

Owner's Response: During our guests stay we were made aware of a leak from the upstairs bathroom which has been fixed. Unfortunately, sometimes things like leaks and other similar maintenance issues arise. We do our best to address them as quickly as possible. We always have extra light bulbs in the house that can be accessed by the guests if needed. The upstairs bed described in this review is actually an adjustable bed that can be adjusted to the sleepers comfort level (like a sleep number bed). We always encourage our guests to please ask questions about anything in the house if they are unsure of its use or accessibility. We strive to do our best to keep a very clean and enjoyable space for our guests. If any guest ever has concerns or questions, we are easily accessible and will do our absolute best to address it.
