About Nicolle and Robert

We work hard ... But have no fear we play hard too!

Whenever time allows, we can be found cooking up a fabulous concoction in the kitchen (red wine in hand) & we often share with our guests too;) or we may be out & about walking the rio grande with our 4 (yes! Four), four legged family: tucker, rio, bella and bo ... On many occasions, we visit the plethora of dog friendly restaurant patio's and can often be found on our bikes headed to a new SW Adventure in The Land Of Enchantment.

We absolutely love, love, love living in the south west & hope to share all of it's wonder & beauty with you!

Robert & Nicolle

Nicolle and Robert purchased this house in 2009

Why Nicolle and Robert chose New Mexico

For some it is the peacefulness, for others the proximity to hiking trails. Most will mention the perfect weather, four distinct seasons without harsh extremes. But almost everyone's answer will include something about the views. Many homes look north toward the hills and mesas, all the way to the Jemez range and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains north of Santa Fe.

Others face the mountain, that smooth yet imposing spine of the Sandias which covers with snow in the winter. Some homes get both views. In another pleasant paradox of Placitas life, these comforting views are always the same, and yet they change constantly thanks to the sun's evolving angles and the seasonal rebirth of high desert flowers and shrubs.

With it's convenient proximity to both the Albuquerque-Rio Rancho metro area and Santa Fe, Placitas is recognized as a unique – and a uniquely situated – bedroom community for these areas.

Placitas bringsThe blessings of clean, fresh air, truly great neighbors, and the presence of the majestic Sandia mountains shielding you from the often intense bustle of Albuquerque. Placitas has created a peaceful setting and provided all the best elements.

While driving through Albuquerque into Placitas, One might marvel at the way their spirit will be transformed upon entering this serene and magical place.

Breath deeply and allow the tranquil beauty of the pinon and juniper studded hills melt away any tension.

It is Natural New Mexico, nothing artificial, contrived or out of place.

Yes, as far as we are concerned, Placitas has it all.

Enjoyed frequent outings to the Jemez Mountains, a spectacular 45-minute drive from Placitas. The dances and feast days at Jemez Pueblo are surreal. Jemez Hot Springs is a natural retreat for restoring body and mind.

What makes this house unique

I Know we have said it ... But The Views are OUTSTANDING and it so peaceful & serene!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house. It was comfortable for our group of five. You thought of everything and the extra's were very much appreciated.



The location was perfect for day trips to Santa Fe,Albuquerque etc.



Very peaceful and relaxing surroundings and well appointed & decorated. The upscale style was great and we felt spoiled.



Nicolle is a great host and went the extra mile to ensure we knew where everything was & how it worked. She provided great tips on restaurants ... We recommend : The Range & The Merc (groceries & deli).



Again,top notch & Beautiful. We wish we could stay longer! we will definitely re-book the next time we come to New Mexico!!!



Thank You & Hook'em Horns

Great property and perfectly organized.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the VRBO property as a sister get away weekend and loved it. The home had a great floor plan which was very comfortable and it was beautifully decorated. The outdoor patio was so comfortable and had such a peaceful surrounding with a view of the mountains. There wasn't a single thing we needed as more than we could possibly require was made available at the home.

Our new favorite place!

  • 5 of 5

This is our favorite rental in the last 10 years. Not only is it clean, beautiful and architecturally honest to the Pueblo-style home but it was lovely to stay because we didn't have to worry about a thing. Nicolle had taken care of everything and we mean, everything. For the first time, we didn't have to worry: "does the place have a coffee grinder, non-stick pans that aren't scratched, condiments, paper supplies" and the list goes on and on. It was so relaxing to just enjoy our stay because everything had been provided for. The only limitation was the internet bandwidth. We don't know if it is because of DISH or the somewhat remote location. Since we have been home, we miss the peace, tranquility and general "quiet" this home provides. Nicolle also recommended a nearby spa - Tamaya Spa and Mist at the Hyatt at the Santa Ana Pueblo. It was wonderful. That really completed the entire experience. We hope to be back soon to this lovely location and fantastic hospitality.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was amazing! The house itself is beautiful and has everything you need for a perfect stay. Nicolle is available for any questions you may have and reminded me of a Vrbo fairy godmother as all we asked for was provided. I have rented homes all over the country through Vrbo and this house was kept and managed perfectly. This house certainly lives up to its name, house of the heavens!

Fabulous house!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented houses all over the US and in Europe and this was by far the best-equipped and managed we've ever had. The house itself is lovely, beautifully and comfortably furnished with magnificent views. The kitchen has everything you could ever need, well organized and top quality.The beds are so comfy, lovely linens, and they add to a restful vacation. Placitas is an easy drive to Santa Fe or Albuquerque, yet it's so quiet and private that it's also very relaxing. Nicolle and Robert are the perfect hosts: ready at a moment to answer a question, yet never intrusive. We felt very much at home here and hope to return soon.

Ask three Placitans what they like best about living in Placitas and you may get six different answers. One will say it is being so far from everything, another, being so close to everything — and both will be right.

For some it is the peacefulness, for others the proximity to hiking trails. Most will mention the perfect weather, four distinct seasons without harsh extremes. But almost everyone's answer will include something about the views. Many homes look north toward the hills and mesas, all the way to the Jemez range and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains north of Santa Fe.
