About Debbi or Mark Blackbird

We are from Austin and enjoy our home in Santa Fe numerous times each year. Particularly appealing are Santa Fe's four distinct seasons and the many activities that can be enjoyed like hiking, biking, golfing, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, sledding with our grandchildren, horseback riding, birdwatching, photography, gardening and cooking. Also to be enjoyed are the many art galleries, museums, cultural activities including the famous outdoor opera theatre.

Debbi or Mark Blackbird purchased this house in 2007

Why Debbi or Mark Blackbird chose North Hills

We have traveled through Santa Fe for over forty years and decided that the historical city with the beautiful light, activities, weather, seasons, and ease of traveling there either by air or auto would be a perfect fit for us for a second home.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with our home at first glance. When the front door opened and we saw the beautiful view, we were sold!

This is a lovely home and was very comfortable for our family. It was well equipped and met all our needs. The views of the mountains from the living room were great and the sunsets outstanding. It was well located,

a very quick and easy drive to town and on the way to the ski slopes. I would recommend staying there and would look forward to staying there on a return trip to Santa Fe.

Christmas in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, beautifully decorated and furnished home. Very comfortable with all the necessary amenities. Owners provided many special touches for Christmas. Great location. Worth the 3 minute drive to downtown to be able to come home and enjoy such a beautiful home with a lovely view. We would happily stay here again any time of the year!

Thanksgiving 2016 - A fabulous stay to remember!

  • 5 of 5

Finding a luxury home for 6 adults on a holiday week is never easy, yet by sheer last minute luck we found the Blackbird's home listed. Thank goodness! It is simply wonderful.

We travel to Santa Fe 5-6 times a year, have stayed in all of the top hotels and inns, and this house beats them all! The interior spaces are luxuriously appointed with beautiful fabrics and linens, discerning art installs, and excellent task and ambient lighting. The rooms are spacious, the views are beautiful and the location is excellent. For us, however, the most unique aspect of the home was that it was just that - a home. Not a rental house with poor quality furniture and art. This is a luxurious gated property with every possible kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and even laundry room product and appliance. No need to bring anything but your clothes!

For those seeking elegant accommodations, seek no further. Debbi and Mark, thank you for sharing your home with us. It was a Thanksgiving not to be forgotten!
