My daughter and I stayed here in June 2016. It could not have been more perfect! Francis is great to work with----even when I had issues with PayPal on my end, he made it work. It really is a great location to get away from everything, but close enough that Santa Fe and other towns are easy to explore. It was totally worth the 17 hour drive!

Can't wait to visit again.

Amazing Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely stunning. True to the photos and even better. The immaculately decorated interior/exterior and rustic style made it feel cozy and relaxing. Everything from the decor to the location was perfect. Our young boys loved walking the trails and exploring in the multiple outdoor living spaces around the house. It was a perfect setup for us with two young children as we could go to town for a few hours and then retreat to a quiet area with plenty of space for them to play. It felt like a true retreat for my husband and I in every way as well. We are already planning on going back! Francis was great to work with, very timely in all responses and professional. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

Francis was an excellent host and his place is absolutely gorgeous. We came for little family pre-Christmas trip and loved every minute of it. It took us all day to drive there so it was such a nice treat to be greeted with fresh enchiladas for dinner! We are already talking about coming back! Thanks Francis for an excellent stay!

Beautiful private retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect home for our vacation in Santa Fe. It's close enough to the city to be convenient for dining and sightseeing, but far away enough to feel secluded and private. We enjoyed the lovely main house and the beautiful patio and deck. The house is spacious and nicely decorated. Beds were luxurious, and the kitchen had everything we needed (although we didn't do much cooking due to all the wonderful restaurants in Santa Fe and the delicious enchiladas that awaited us on arrival). Our sister-in-law was delighted to have her own casita just steps away from the main house! We'd definitely stay at Casa Apache again and recommend it to others.

Birthday Bash

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place for family members to celebrate birthdays. Two generations of women attended. The view was fabulous, accommodations outstanding for 6 women and the enchiladas yummy. The grounds were wonderful to just sit and relax and it was nice having Santa Fe so close.

Lovely retreat

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a family celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary at Casa Apache with our daughter and her husband. We spent 11 days at this lovely compound and made many memories. Daughter and husband were able to have privacy in the casita and we could spend time together in the main house. It is in kind of a remote area, down a rough dirt road, but this made it special for us. Do note, however, that there are 2 queen beds in the main house as in the property description and not a king in the master bedroom as stated further down. It is not air-conditioned but this was not a problem as the night air was cool from the mountains and in the daytime we were gone a lot. We had our dogs with us and they enjoyed the long walks in the woods. The courtyard in not completely fenced so walking on leashes was necessary for them. Cafe Fina and Harry's Roadhouse are not far for good restaurant eating. If you are looking for a quiet place far removed from the maddening crowd, this is the place for you.

Owner's Response: I;m so glad you had a wonderful time and thank you for the 5 Stars. For new readers, a king size bed has been placed in the master bedroom so the Main House has a King and Queen. The Guest Casita has its own King bed too. Most homes in Santa Fe do not have air conditioners as the evenings are very cool and days with low humidity. Come back and see us again soon and thank you again for the 5 Star rating..
