Overview

Lamy House Rental Photos and Description

2 King Mstr BR's + loft sleeps up to 6 more, 4 Baths, Private, Mtn. Views

Come to New Mexico and discover this serene Northern New Mexican Adobe Styled home perfect for those seeking a secluded, upscale designer home with majestic views, yet close enough to Santa Fe to not miss out on the activities of the Plaza area.

This case has two large master bedrooms & a grand loft that can accommodate another family. The décor is Santa Fe style with colorful Persian rugs throughout the home. It is a 3,700 sq. ft. dwelling residing on 13 acres of high plains with roaming wildlife on the edge of Eldorado and historical Lamy, where the mountain vistas silhouette the horizon. All this, and only 20 minutes (15 miles) from famous arts and music of downtown Santa Fe. From the house, you can hike to the Galisteo Basin, or it’s just a 3 minute drive to their great hiking trails.

The Northern New Mexico style of architecture is a two-story pitched roof style, allowing the snow to fall off the roof. The living room has that wonderful, two-story pitched ceiling with lots of windows providing wonderful light to this area. The wood-burning fireplace provides a cozy atmosphere when there is a touch of cold in the air. There is HDTV and French doors providing great views of those mountains that virtually surround the home. The door leads to the great portal.

The kitchen is “L” shaped, with new appliances, including a glass-top electric stove. There is a fireplace in the kitchen, providing great atmosphere.

The formal dining area is adjacent to the kitchen and included in the open living space of the home. The table can be expanded to easily seat eight.

One of the two spacious master bedrooms has a featured log cabin style wall with a luxurious king size bed with southwestern decor. French doors look out to the majestic and peaceful mountain views. There is a small desk here and a WIFI booster. This master bathroom has double sinks and a walk in shower with Talavera Mexican tiles.

The Second Master bedroom is located at the opposite end of the home. Here you’ll find another king size bed and a private bathroom with the only tub in the home (the others have only showers). Both bedroom and bath have views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. There is a large HDTV in this bedroom.

A separate entry hall houses the office with WIFI, a monitor, and printer ready for you to hook in your laptop.

The loft runs half the length of the home. It has those beautiful pitched ceilings and mountain views out every window. There is a queen bed, and a double bed at one end, and a twin trundle at the other. If you have a large group, there are several air mattresses w/ air pumps that can easily be put on the floor of the loft (1 queen and 2 twins). A separate bathroom serves loft guests with double sinks and a shower. Also, there is a fourth bathroom at the bottom of the stairs with a single sink and shower that would be convenient for overflow guests.

Relax in the long covered portal located across the back of the home (off MBR1, the kitchen, and living room) with large table and 5 chairs, perfect for meals outdoors. There is also cushioned lounge furniture (loveseat and 4 chairs), great for watching the gorgeous sunsets, or looking out into the starry night where there are no lights to interfere with your star gazing.

The fully-enclosed front courtyard with scattered Aspen trees is the perfect place to keep your pet close by. There is a doggie door from this area into the house.

Additional amenities include garage area for two cars, separate laundry room with washer, dryer, iron & ironing board. There is additional off-street parking. This home has Evaporative Cooling, though it is rarely needed. The lower level has radiant (in floor) heat. The loft is heated with hot water baseboard heat.

Enjoy the taste of the Southwest, where the life style is never in a rush and most everyone is friendly and relaxed…a world where you can get away from the pressures of life - and if you stay too long, you will not want to return home.

We returned to Casa Vilasa to enjoy the Christmas Holiday for a second consecutive year. A better place to relax during the holidays while enjoying the snow, fabulous mountain and sunset views, and of course a cozy fire could not be found anywhere. Two families can easily stay at this wonderful home and everything you could need to fix a full holiday dinner is there to use. Hiking on the nature preserve this property is located on and next to is full of surprises from bird life to rabbits to coyotes and even nearby horses to pet. For a place for your little ones to sled and play in the snow there is no place better and getting to the ski slopes is only a 40 minute drive. After two years of the "Christmas house" I think my grandson will soon think this is the only place Santa will find him at! Cudos to the owners and the management company for taking such great care of visitors to Casa Vilasa.

Superb Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I can't use enough superlatives to describe this fabulous home near Santa Fe. All of the bedrooms have an attached bathroom with double sinks. And if that’s not enough, there’s an additional bathroom near the kitchen. The tiles used in the bathrooms and kitchen are absolutely gorgeous, as is this whole house. The house comes equipped with everything you might need – extra comforters for the bedrooms, basic spices, storage bags, coffee filters, paper towels, dishwashing and laundry detergents, and on and on with the only request being to replace anything used up. There is a large patio running the entire length of the west side of the house where you can sit and watch the rabbits hopping through the yard, listen to the coyotes in the nearby nature preserve and watch gorgeous sunsets. The owner has provided a notebook with instructions for how things work in the house as well as detailed suggestions for day trips to consider. This was very helpful but additionally, there was also a phone number for the property manager to call in an emergency. At the Agora Shopping Center, less than 10 minutes from the house, you can stop at the supermarket for groceries, wine, beer and/or liquor or dine at the Chez Dre Bakery where you can eat great sandwiches, enjoy delicious mixed drinks or savour one of their decadent pastries . Casa Vilasa was home base for our family for six nights and we absolutely hated to leave.

Fantastic Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

Me, my girlfriend and our 4 kids (ages 11-17) spent Thanksgiving week at Casa Vilasa. We had an outstanding stay. A couple of days in Santa Fe (15 minutes from Casa Vilasa to the Plaza, tops), but the real thrill was the surrounding countryside and hiking. We did Tent Rocks (45 minutes from Casa Vilasa, the hike itself is about 4-5 hours, make sure you get there early enough in the day), Galisteo Basin Ridge Trail (walked out the back door of Casa Vilasa at about 8 a.m., we were back by 1 p.m., unbelievable that such a hike can be had without having to get in a car), and Mt. Atalaya (started in the St. Johns College Parking Lot, about 20 minutes from Casa Vilasa, hike to the top -- about a 2000 foot climb -- took about 4 hours start to finish, more if you want to admire view (or catch your breath) along the way).

The accommodations were first class, we didn't want for anything (OK, except for better light in the living room to work our jigsaw puzzle). There were jackalope sightings, shooting stars, mystic sunrises, fiery sunsets, and teenagers wandering the frozen landscape for several hours in a dark night. It was fabulous, and I couldn't recommend it more.

OK, I'll mention one more gripe -- no ESPN?!?! For a football-mad family over Thanksgiving week, this was tough -- until we figured out how to hook the laptop up to the TV and use the Watch ESPN app. But this was a small issue, otherwise the 6 of us give it 12 thumbs up.

Fabulous vacation at Casa Vilasa!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most enjoyable and relaxing time at Casa Vilasa this summer! This home is very beautiful, but is also extremely comfortable. The bedrooms are exceptional, as are all the amenities. We had everything we needed and we very much enjoyed going out and seeing the sights, and then returning home to get the rest we were seeking. We could not have asked for a more comfortable place and we both commented that we would enjoy coming to Casa Vilasa again on our next trip to Santa Fe. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone is looking for a place where they can relax and get away.

Beautiful and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful property; pictures are accurate. This is a great place for pets due to the enclosed large courtyard. House is nicely appointed and comfortable. There is a beautiful sunset to view from the back veranda just about every evening. Property is also great for long walks. Santa Fe is about a half hour away so we went there for the gallerys and shopping; also ate at several resturants. The closest amenities to the property were about 4 miles away where there were a couple of restuarants, gas station and grocery store. So, you can get away from it all at the property while still not being very far from civilization!

Amazing Holiday With Family!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family traveled to NM to visit my brother who lives a mile from the home for the Christmas holiday. We found this rental after lots of searching and it was perfect in every way. There are two master bedrooms which are on either side of the house. They almost worked as separate wings. This worked so well for us, since my small family and my sisters small family were renting the house together! The older kids slept in the loft, there were plenty of choices for beds! I had a toddler with me and I used the large laundry room as a place to set up the pack n play (the house provided a pack n play). The house had everything we could have needed including extra blankets, extra supplies, and great instructions for hikes in the area. The open floor plan was excellent for everyone hanging out and spending time together! The sunsets and sunrises were amazing each and every day. We even had snow on Christmas!!! We had the best family holiday ever and will hopefully come back to stay here again!!! Thank you to the owners for sharing your home and making our holiday so memorable!
