Casa Apache is the place to rent if you want a beautiful, clean, comfortable and secluded place to stay + Francis is a very kind and responsive host. If we are in the Santa Fe area again, I wouldn't have to spend any time trying to figure out where we should stay. The gorgeous courtyard is a wonderland for critters. My husband and I enjoyed watching the birds, rabbits, various types of squirrels (including adorable babies!), little lizards and deer. Our golden retriever was in heaven being able to explore with us on the trails that start right off the deck. (You can go for quite a ways in different directions. If you look at the area surrounding the house on Google maps you'll see what I'm talking about.) Definitely eat some meals at nearby Cafe Fina and Harry's Roadhouse. The espresso/coffee were excellent at both places and I would highly recommend that you treat yourself to the lemon ricotta pancakes at Harry's!

Oasis in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I and two children stayed at this beautiful home for three nights. It was prettier than the pictures. Enchiladas in the refrigerator were perfect after a day of driving into town. You would definitely need 4WD in rainy or snowy weather. The beds were so comfortable. Francis was so nice to work with and refilled the propane tank for us so we could have a fire outside. Very accommodating. Would love to stay here again next year!!

My family and I made our first trip to Santa Fe and the accommodations were exceptional! We enjoyed the comforts of this outstanding property and everything it had to offer. I highly recommend it! The enchiladas that awaited our arrival was fantastic and memories were made that will last a lifetime.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property!! I had never rented any properties through VRBO and boy was I pleasantly surprised! My husband and I spent the week with my brother and sister-in-law and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Francis was wonderful to work with and the home was even better than the pictures. It was a lovely home to come back to after seeing all that we could of Santa Fe and surrounding areas. I would recommend this property to everyone!!

Not Enough Superlatives for Casa Apache

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house and casita for 4 days and seriously I can't express how fabulous this property is. We are repeat visitors to Santa Fe and have stayed at other VRBO's, we can't out due this one. This trip we brought along another couple and we were all blown away with the house. Francis was great to work with before, during and after. He's so quick to respond and he does all the little things to make your stay great. The enchiladas on arrival were wonderful and that's coming from a Texan. A directory of grocery stores, favorite restaurants, etc were all handy. The house and casita are beautifully done. Everything is immaculate, tasteful, comfortable and just perfect for multiple couples or a family. The patio's are beautiful, we watched hummingbirds daily come within feet of where we were sitting. The second patio deck with grill was a great place to watch the sun set, fix dinner and enjoy our vacation. After dark we moved to the gas fireplace outside. Beds are super comfy.

We originally did not rent the casita but with only one bathroom in the main house we felt we would be better off with the casita and second bath. The master bath is next to the master bedroom, not in it, so it can easily be shared.

We want to go back next year and there is no place else we want to stay.

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.
