About Flora Leyba
Both my husband and I were born and raised here in New Mexico. We are in our mid 80's with 2 married children. We have 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. We love to travel and have been blessed to see many beautiful parts of the world. There is still no place lovelier than Santa Fe and we hope to share our love of Santa Fe and its surrounding area with our guests.
Flora Leyba purchased this House in 2011
Why Flora Leyba chose Santa Fe
Growing up in northern New Mexico we are accustomed to haciendas (several dwellings under one roof) where families lived near each other. The entire house is set up as four separate units under one roof. This is the largest main unit with three bedrooms and two baths.
What makes this House unique
The views from the property of all the mountains are superb! Spectacular sunrises over the Sangre de Cristo mountains to colorful sunsets over the Jemez Mountains. Just outside the city limits but close enough to drive to either the Santa Fe Plaza, Santa Fe Opera, Santa Fe Ski area and easy access to Albuquerque.

Peace and quiet
Left owner note about things to fix--fireplace upstairs not usable-no pilot light; dirty toilets; outlet in master bedroom behind bed needs repair (safety issue).
Good communication from owners; good location; no dishwasher was a surprise plus needing to empty all the trashes and leave on kitchen floor-a little unusual for VRBO's I've have used over many years especially when you are charged a cleaning fee; wished for better visual of address sign since we arrived after dark-there's no lighting at the turn to the house.
Gloria, we are glad your family was able to come with you for the weekend and not have to cancel. I am surprised that you found the toilets dirty since I was there the day our housekeeper was cleaning. We will have our maintenance manager check the outlet in the master bedroom. That hadn’t been reported by the previous guests so we were not aware. I would like to emphasize that we remind our guests in writing prior to checking in, if there are any problems whatsoever to please call us immediately so they can be remedied. I wish you would have because we certainly want you to be comfortable during your stay. As for there being no dishwasher, that is listed in the property description. There are also instructions on the upstairs fireplace mantle on lighting the fireplace. Again, if you would have called us several of these issues would have been remedied. We thank you for staying at Hacienda de Leyba and do hope you will return again. We strive to have good communication and a clean and comfortable place for our guests to feel right at home.
Santa Fe House
Perfect place for 5 of us to stay. Easy communication with owner, the place was clean & the water was warm! Definitely recommend!
Thank you Gina! It's nice knowing you ladies all had a great weekend and a comfortable stay. We do hope you will return again.
Best way to experience Santa Fe
We visited during our spring break and enjoyed everything about this house. The fully equipped kitchen, three large bedrooms and two baths had my wife and three kids happy and comfortable the entire stay. The view from the balcony is amazing and having a washer and dryer saved us since we went snow sledding every day. The owners are extremely helpful and make sure you have everything you need!
Thank you Andrew & Family! We are so pleased you all had a great stay! I know you enjoyed your time in Santa Fe too. It's very reassuring knowing our guests were happy and comfortable during their stay. We hope you come back soon.
Great hacienda for a Christmas getaway!
We had a very nice stay. It was a very comfortable, clean, and spacious home. Nice big kitchen, comfortable beds, nice linens, and a wood stove which made the living room cozy. We felt especially welcomed when the owner left a couple of treats for us for our arrival. I would highly recommend this accommodation for your Santa Fe trip!
Kristen thank you for choosing to stay at Hacienda de Leyba for Christmas! We are happy you enjoyed the comfortable beds and the extra warmth of the wood stove to stay cozy especially during the cold spell. We make every effort to have a clean and comfortable home for our guests to enjoy in their home away from home so thank you for noting that. I agree the kitchen is quite spacious and a great gathering place. We hope to see you again!
Great Unit, Great Location
My family is from the Santa Fe area. We stayed there during the Thanksgiving holiday. The house was great and the location was perfect. The house was very well equipped for "thanksgiving cooking." The only cons I have: small outdated TV, stove would not boil water, oven needs to be calibrated. Outside of that, the stay was great. House was very clean and in amazing condition.
Thank you for the letting us know about the oven and stove, we are having them both checked. As far as the tv, it is only 3 years old but we have had no complaints to date. When they do go out, we will upgrade to a larger size. We strive to have the home clean and appreciate knowing if things are not working properly. We want our guests to be comfortable and feel at home. We hope you return again.
Just like home
I felt as though we were staying in someones home and they had just left the day before.A very pleasant experience and very comfortable. Open the door and just start relaxing The location is rural, but surprisingly close to everything. It is very quiet and peaceful. My family enjoyed sitting on the deck for morning coffee and enjoying the peaceful area and watching the sunrise light up the mountains to the west. The kitchen is something else, large, fully stocked and a window to the west that is the width of the kitchen. The upstairs den and patio provide great views of the Santa Fe area and a separate area to get away from other activities in the home. This is a large unit and everyone can spread out . We enjoyed it immensely.
Thank you Charles and family for staying at Hacienda de Leyba. We are so glad you all had a pleasant and very comfortable stay! That is what we strive for. Yes, the kitchen is very large and well stocked and the pictures don't do justice until you see it in person. So happy that you enjoyed both the deck and upstairs patio too. We hope you come back soon!
