About Diane Bylund owner /reservations. Blake and Mitty on site managers/ concierge

We operated a vacation rental in St. Helena, Napa Valley for 30 years that was sold in 2014 when we purchased this retreat home in Santa Fe . We are so excited about sharing this spectacular place. Our son Blake manages the property with his partner Mitty, They both live onsite in a detached home on the property

Diane Bylund owner /reservations. Blake and Mitty on site managers/ concierge purchased this chateau / country house in 2014

Why Diane Bylund owner /reservations. Blake and Mitty on site managers/ concierge chose Santa Fe

6700 square feet of indoor space as well as a comparable number of outdoor spaces including outdoor dining for large groups make this property uniquely suited for parties of ten or more.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Ten minutes from downtown Santa Fe...we find the location to be perfect as it is closer to the Santa Fe Opera, world class golf , the Las campanas club house, Marty Sanchez get more of a rural setting which allows for marvelous star gazing at night .

Guestbook comments from the owner

Simply the best rental in Santa Fe. The property is tucked away with no neighbors in sight; only mountain and desert views in every direction. Such a perfect and serine retreat complete with extra large entertaining and dining spaces, indoor hot tub with fireplace, dry sauna, and the best memory-foam mattresses we've ever slept on!! Very well furnished and very Southwestern chic. We'd love to return in the spring or fall to enjoy the extra large outdoor space with pool, dining and creeping wisteria bushes covering the pergola. The host lives next door and is extremely helpful and accommodating; completely accessible but also not visible if not needed. Perfect size for 4 couples plus 2-4 single friends as it would comfortably sleep 10-12. Thx again Santa Fe!!

Amazing Home, Property and Location! Your Own Private Resort.

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed at a few rental homes over the years but this has been by far the best ever. 12 adults and one toddler for a family reunion and never once did we trip over each other, fight for seating on the sofas or at the dining tables (one inside and one massive round one outside) or have to wait in line for a bathroom. This house has absolutely everything you need while travelling. Right down to terry cloth robes and towels. The only thing one needs to do is bring groceries! Everything in the kitchen functions (and matches) the beds are all extremely comfortable with spotless bedding and extra blankets. Rooms are all decorated impeccably and definitely very much a Santa Fe theme. It was the cleanest rental home we've ever stayed in and the property with its astounding views and lap pool made it feel like our own private resort. All of us we're thrilled with it, and due to its proximity to everything from parks to the downtown Santa Fe area we were able to have a week loaded with great memories that will last us forever. And some amazing photos of beautiful sunrises and sunsets. (Even a bit of a snowstorm that blew through!). Kudos to the owners of this wonderful home. Thanks! It was worth the drive from Toronto, Ontario, Canada for a couple of us, some from a Texas and a few from California. We will have a very rough time topping this reunion spot---so it came up in conversation to just do it again in the same house!

Spacious, well equipped/appointed home with wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

I don't normally write reviews but felt I should in this instance. From coordination well before our arrival, to the day of our departure, our hosts were second to none. We spent the Christmas holiday at the property and had asked Blake and Mitty to help us with a Christmas tree for our kids.....they were not only very accommodating and coordinated buying one for us, but decorated the tree sparing nothing. They went out of their way to also decorate the interior of the home for the holidays which made our group feel very much like we were at home, and not afar. We rent many homes along the way in our family travels, and I know my family was tired of me saying it during our stay, but they literally had every tool needed to comfortably live in their home during our stay. Silly simple things like irons make a difference, and they did not scrimp as they had a Rowenta iron for their guests. Anyway, love the town, love the location (very close to downtown), loved the home and thoroughly enjoyed the hosts and their want to make us comfortable. I highly recommend this property to those who are looking for a very nice, spacious place to enjoy their visit to Santa Fe.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

the house worked beautifully for a group of 8 people, adult friends traveling together.

It has a great location and allowed for day trips hiking and exploring. It is appointed well, we cooked several times and totally enjoyed relaxing by the pool at the end of the day with the warm rays of the sun as the days are cooling off.

The perfect wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our nephew got married in Santa Fe last weekend. We wanted to bring the whole family together from across the country instead of staying in various hotels. This house was fabulous and perfect for the group. It had more than enough space to accommodate 10 adults for 4 nights without feeling crowded. We enjoyed having coffee together as a family each morning on the patio or by the pool. We made full use of the hot tub (get the jets repaired) , the pool and the sauna. (the addition of the soft robes and towels was a huge extra) And, the space for gathering and visiting with family (who stayed in hotels) was wonderful. Everyone in our group remarked repeatedly that the weekend was perfect due to the choice of lodging. The property and the home are well kept, decorated beautifully, private and very quiet. There was plenty of parking even when guests arrived. It is only 15 to 20 minutes from the Santa Fe square and other the activities in the area. The property managers and the owner were responsive and professional. The only down side was that we didn't have enough personal vacation time to stay longer!! We will definitely return.

Thank you again, Blake and Mitty, for helping to make this wedding weekend special. You have a very special space to share with others.

A great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family--three couples and 5 children, six and under. Blake and Mitty were SO gracious in working with us on timing issues; we had them for drinks and dinner one night and had a lovely evening. This was the most well-equipped home we've rented--more dishes & pots & pans, lots of household supplies for cooking and laundry, tons of towels for pool, hot tub and indoors, lots of night lights--and the pool area was marvelous. The house was about 15 minutes from most of the attractions in Santa Fe and about 5 to the airport--so convenient. We loved being out away from the bustle of the city because our views from the mountain were terrific. I really hope we can stay here again. Thanks again, Blake & Mitty, for helping to make our trip so great. Hope Charlie Brown is doing well!
