A magnificent home!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several wonderful VRBO homes and we were members of a destination club for four years so we have stayed in many beautiful properties. This is one of the finest and I would highly recomment it. Everything about the home is exceptional. We were a group of four women so we only rented the main house. We loved the fact that everyone had her own bedroom and bath and the kitchen was exceptionally well equipped. I wish my kitchen drawers looked like that! The management company, Casas de Santa Fe, does a great job of maintaining the property and preparing it for new guests. The furnishings and artwork were amazing and it made us feel like we were staying in someone's beautiful personal home. The outdoor patio areas were also exceptional and the home and the casita are on almost an acre of land.

We love the Tesuque area and we chose this home partially because it was within walking distance of the Tesuque Village Market, a funky, unique wonderful place for breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts, pastries and some great little gifts. The home is also close to the Tesuque Glassworks (a must as far as we're concerned) and the Shidoni Foundry.

I have sung the praises of this home so much to our friends that I just home we will be able to get in when we return to Santa Fe!

Amazing property - great for our mini reunion of 10!

  • 5 of 5

Overall we were just totally impressed and very pleased with the property! The pictures just do not do it justice – it looked great online - but it is really stunning to see it in person. The furnishings and décor (in the main house especially) are really top notch – very warm and comfortable and easy to live in. The kitchen(s) were all very well stocked with really nice dishes, cutlery, knives, serve ware, cooking utensils and pots and pans... and plenty of wine glasses of all shapes and sizes. The amenities were top notch and we loved having a private bathroom for every bedroom!

We were a group of 10 and this property really was a great fit for us: My husband and I stayed in the Guest House, my sister and her family (2 adults and 4 older kids) plus my parents stayed in the Main House. It was great to have a master suite downstairs for my parents... they were just "wowed" with the luxury...and had enough distance from everything and everyone if and when they needed it. We all had plenty of room and being a mom of 4, my sister was ecstatic about laundry rooms upstairs and downstairs!

The layout of the house & guest house really lends itself to a variety of activities, keeping people separate to do their own thing, yet easily connected thru a doorway or short walkway. The location is really great - driving into Santa Fe was a snap, yet it felt very rural and secluded. We took advantage of having a wood fire going most nights which made our little getaway feel like we were at our own private ski lodge. Very relaxing!

Both the owner and the management company were incredibly nice and easy to work with - I would highly recommend both for anyone traveling to Santa Fe or surrounding area.

We would love to stay here again in the future!

Great Santa Fe house for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great two week stay at this gorgeous house in Santa Fe. The layout was perfect for all of our family, and especially good for the entertaining that we did, and inviting friends over for meals.

The location was great for us, and easy to get to the arts of Santa Fe, both in the city and for opera. The Santa Fe Opera is minutes away.

We enjoyed the personalization of the decor, it really felt like a private home, with beautiful art and decorations. Each room feels like it has a personality, from the bedrooms to the main areas.

Having a separate casita was also great for us.

We will plan on coming again, and can enthusiastically recommend this beautiful property.

This once was a wonderful property, very much in need of deffered maintenance

  • 1 of 5

We rented this home for our family reunion, including the Casita. It was once a wonderful home/property but needs to have many deferred maintenance items completed. Upon our arrival all electrical outlets, lights, closet lights in upper master bedroom not working, we called to have someone come out and fix, no one ever showed. The second morning we woke up to no water in the main house and also the Casita. We called the after hours emergency number (9 people unable to use the toilets) after the second phone call we finally received a call back, they said someone would be there about 9:00 A.M. My brother who is a contractor crawled down the ladder and into the well, and was able to get the water back on just as the well contractor showed up. This happened again during our stay, no water in the morning. Missing basic kitchen tools, not (1) spatula in the kitchen, or a knife that would cut a tomato. So on our daily shopping trips we purchased a spatula and a knife that will cut up vegetables. We had lots of live/dead bugs in the showers, on the sheets, towels provided in the main house and especially the Casita. We have rented many homes through VRBO for family get togethers and again this home could be wonderful, it just needs lots of TLC, maintenance and clean-up.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comments. We are sorry that you experienced some issues with the property on your stay. You must know that we take great pride in the property and do keep it very well-maintained. Just to let you know, we recently sent out our maintenance team from Kansas City and spent $4500 on the house to make sure that everything was working properly including all lights, doors and locks, electrical outlets and did extensive touch -up painting and exterior work. We had just had the well serviced in late April and spent $800 to replace the pump switch. As far as the not having the closet light and electrical outlet working in the upstairs master, sometimes overloading the circuits with hairdryers can cause the problem. Our maintenance man went to check and you told him not to worry about it according to our manager. The well was working properly since it had just been serviced. If everyone takes showers at one time, the well can get drained and needs time to fill. Our future renters will be notified of this. Our contractor was called at 6am and went out at 9am. We understand that you said that it was fixed and tried to send him away. He did stay, however, and blew out the air from the system to make sure it was working for you. I am puzzled that you found no spatula nor knives. We have three kitchens on the property and I know that there are very ample utensils. Sorry if someone might have moved items to one of the other drawers. Sorry you had issues with some bugs. Remember we are outside the city in a high desert climate. We do get bugs. We clean thoroughly after each rental and then go back to freshen before each new rental. Our manager/agent Casas de Santa Fe then has someone in quality control inspect each house to make sure it is up to both our and their rigorous standards. We may have had some bugs come in after that inspection, but if that was an issue our housekeeper would have gladly come out to correct the problem. Though you found us on VRBO we actively work with the best manager and housekeeper in Santa Fe. I would have preferred to have had you work with them and our well contractor while you were there rather to have heard it after the fact.

Great Thanksgiving Week with Family

  • 5 of 5

Spent the week of Thanksgiving in Santa Fe and rented the house based on the recommendations of the owner of Weybridge Collection and rented through Casa de Santa Fe. We have stayed in other Weybridge collection properties and overall I have to say they are second to none having rented houses and villas now on 5 continents over the last 12 years or so. We had a wonderful time and the house is perfect for groups of all sizes. Well equipped with everything on needs to host such an event plus wonderful areas for entertaining both inside and out. Being soTesuque Market is a plus and literally minutes from the Plaza, Sante Fe Opera and Indian Market. We will be going back and are counting down the days.

The online images look exactly like the house and the descriptions actually don't do the house justice in my opinion. The property and house were very well maintained with lots of flatware, cooking items, linens, towels, extra blankets, incredibly comfortable beds and magnificent fireplaces. THis house will work well for everyone including a couple looking to just rent the casita or a family of 4 who need some extra space. We maximized every bedroom and had a total of 12 people and we never had an issue with space or parking or noise.

Private and Perfect for our Girl's Trip !

  • 5 of 5

We loved the comfy beds, easy drive to town and how private this place felt. With a fire in the living room fireplace it was a wonderful gathering place for hours of conversation. Super kitchen to have many chefs working at once (we enjoyed a Trader Joe's appetizer night--ok, not exactly "cooking"). Next time we hope to utilize the outdoor fireplace--it looks so inviting. A easy walk to Tesuque Village Market for terrific meals is a HUGE plus. Can't wait to come back!
