About the property

Newly remodeled and furnished 2 bedroom 2 bath 1,400 sf with large outdoor patio

Vistas of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, The Santa Fe Opera, the stars. Quiet that rings in your ears. Solitude that envelopes you with peace. Enchantment. You have arrived at Casa Vista de Cochiti at Pueblo Encantado.

Located just 15 minutes north of the Santa Fe Plaza is this 2 bedroom 2 bath, just remodeled and furnished single family home located in the Tesuque foothills. Bright, airy, open, with high ceilings, Casa Vista de Cochiti offers luxurious and, modern accommodations and furnishings with colors and design inspired by the palette of Georgia O'Keefe. Kivas are located in the living room, master bedroom and outdoor dining patio.

Pueblo Encantado is located across from the Four Seasons Rancho Encantado. (Note: There are no resort privileges.) Casa Vista de Cochiti is a detached single family home, nestled into a hill top ridge, offering 180 degree views, complete privacy and solitude.

Living room has 13 foot beam ceiling with glass doors that open onto the patio and ceiling height windows offering vistas of the mountains, cozy banco by the kiva, television and desk for contemplating the fire and mountain vistas. Santa Fe style brick floors throughout living and dining room are covered with oriental and contemporary area rugs.

Master suite has king bed and desk, wall-to-wall Berber carpeting, kiva, 13 foot beam ceiling and floor-to-ceiling glass windows and door to private patio. New master bath has walk-in closet and very large shower - perfect for a couple!

Ensuite guest room has queen bed and chaise lounge for guests to contemplate the beautiful views of the pinion hills and horizon through the large windows! Berber carpet adds to the serenity and quiet. New guest bath has large shower, also perfect for two.

Other amenities include new washer and dryer. Forced air air conditioning and heat.

The large wrap around brick patio offers 180 degree views, yet feels protected. A retractable awning over the living room glass wall expands your outdoor living space. The patio dining table, with umbrella, offers spectacular views to the east to pinion ridges and the Sangro de Cristo mountains. The kiva and stucco banco (which absorbs the heat of the sun during the day) means evening dining is cozy and comfortable, with firelight and twinkling stars overhead. Speaking of stars, four reclining high back chairs are perfect for reclining to ponder the stars or for reflecting upon the vista during morning coffee. There are padded chaise lounges for some sunning or napping under the awning.

Pueblo Encantado condominiums are scattered throughout 92 acres and sited so as to create a feeling privacy. Hiking through out Pueblo Encantado, as well as dedicated easement through Los Caminitos, across the highway. Our stand alone unit, nestled into a hill top ridge, is especially private and secluded.

In the summer, the outdoor Pueblo Encantado pool is sun filled with views of the mountains and aspen tree landscape around the deck. Also, don't miss the short hike to the top of the ridge behind our home for spectacular views to the Sandias, Jemez mountains, Los Alamos and even Colorado.

Be enchanted. Be relaxed. Be renewed. Breathe. Come to Casa Vista de Cochiti.

About Peter

Finance professional. Born Minnesota. Grew up Southern California. UC Santa Barbara undergraduate. Years in Vail in 1970's in luxury resort hotel business. MBA at Columbia and years on Wall Street in 80's. Back to San Francisco Bay area for past 25 years. Love Opera. Have been coming to Santa Fe Opera for decades.

Peter purchased this house in 2015

Why Peter chose New Mexico

Love Santa Fe and Santa Fe Opera. A bucket list item for me has been to go to the same opera many times to absorb the voices, music and magic. I am living that dream now. Life is good.

Love the vistas and quiet of this second home in Tesuque. I fell in love with Casa Vista de Cochiti at the moment I walked through the portal into the patio. I was in the luxury, resort hotel business for many years and have furnished our home away home to these standards!

I want the world to experience the enchantment of Pueblo Encantado and am thrilled you are considering our corner of the world. Stop. Breathe. Look around. Relax. Enjoy.

What makes this house unique

Isolation. Privacy. Silence. Vast sky. Dark, star studded nights.

Hummingbirds & Starry Nights

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Pueblo Encantado. Peter's place was great and we really appreciated all of his restaurant suggestions as well things to do in the area. The unit was very well maintained and there was very little he had not already thought to have on hand. There was even hummingbird food in the refrigerator which we went through quickly. It was so pleasant to sit out on the front patio and watch the humming birds plow through their food. In a week's time we had to make two batch of additional supplies! We were looking for a quiet place and starry nights and we got both. The first night or two it rained but by the third night there were stars galore. I would point out that there was some road noise as the unit overlooked a nearby road but it did not spoil our time. We would definitely recommend Casa Vista de Cochiti to anyone looking for a New Mexico getaway.

Beautiful home and stunning location! This home is beautifully decorated, clean, and comfortable. Peter (owner) has done an excellent job of anticipating the needs of the renter. He was also a good resource and offered many suggestions for activities in the

area. We will definitely return!

A Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Pueblo Encantado for a full week and cannot say enough good things about this home.

I went there to find peace and solitude in which to unwind, work and rejuvenate. All of these goals were accomplished.

The home itself is in a magical location - sleep beneath brilliant stars, wake to birdsong and high desert sunrises - and includes every thoughtful amenity you could possibly need. Building a fire at night in the beehive Kiva fireplace was certainly a highlight. There is hiking directly from the home and, if you're up for a little civilization and pampering, you've got the Four Seasons resort just across the way.

Another aspect that made the stay so wonderful was Peter, the host. Prior to my arrival he made certain I had everything I needed to make a smooth entry. And during my stay he was extremely responsive, offering not only answers to my questions but amazing suggestions for sites to visit, restaurants to try and so forth.

I'm a regular user of VRBO/HomeAway etc and have stayed in dozens of private homes around the world and can honestly say this experience was among the top.

If you're looking for a unique New Mexican experience, I highly recommend Pueblo Encantado. The property is not only as its owners describe but much, much more.

Excellent location, beautiful views, nice touches, great place.

  • 5 of 5

The location is great - close to downtown, yet in a beautiful part of the countryside, and very quiet. And the views are gorgeous, with special mention for sunrises and sunsets on the hills just outside the house, and a sky full of stars at night, free of light pollution.

When we arrived, there was a welcome bottle of wine, a fire ready to light in the fireplace - and when the owner, Peter, emailed us to say there were coffee beans in the freezer, little did we know that we'd find 7 different types! The place was clean, stylishly furnished, and well laid out. A welcome book on the table had all the info we needed to operate the house, and lots of suggestions for restaurants and brochures for places to go. We cooked most of our meals there, and found the kitchen well appointed with all the tools we needed. Whenever we had questions before or during our stay, we got prompt responses.

Overall, we had a great and relaxing vacation. A++++ WOULD RENT AGAIN.

Unbelievable property

  • 5 of 5

We have our own vacation rental so we "grade" each vacation home we stay at. Peter's place was Numero Uno with every category I can think of... cleanliness, "getting started" supplies including linens, towels, kitchen articles and some starter food, the view, toiletries, decor, fireplace needs, appliances, home layout, the view, directions, ease of access between parking and the home, weather, privacy, parking,,, oh, and the view. For future guests, Peter is the most helpful person in providing information and directions prior to check-in. You should also not hesitate to ask his opinion about restaurants and things to do. (There is a helpful guestbook with lots of local brochures.) In my years of vacation rentals, I have never encountered one so eager to make sure your stay is PERFECT.

Owner's Response: Your experience is exactly what we aim to achieve. Also, this is what we expect when we travel as well as when we arrive at our beloved Pueblo Encantado, Casa Vista de Cochiti. We don't get there often enough. Come back again?

Santa Fe is the oldest capital in the United States, established in 1610, with world class restaurants, second largest art market in the U.S. (Canyon Road is 20 minutes). The world famous Santa Fe Opera is four miles from Casa Vista de Cochiti. Nearby attractions include cliff dwellings, Native American Pueblos, Taos, Los Alamos, winter skiing at Santa Fe Ski Basin and at Taos. The sky, the clouds, the clarity of air. These are some of reasons Santa Fe and New Mexico are called the Land of Enchantment.
