Very enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

This is great location if you do not want to be right in the middle of town.

It only takes approximately 15 minutes to get to the plaza.

Very nice, clean and comfortable with the owner's attention to detail.

Great outdoors, great indoors

  • 5 of 5

Welcome to Casa Apache. This lovely 2,000 sf home and adjacent casita have it all. A beautiful setting in the woods along Apache Ridge on the outside, and all the luxuries of a well-stocked home on the inside.

You'll find the house about 10 miles outside Santa Fe, a very short and easy drive into town when you want to eat, shop and play.

Owner Francis Philips has decorated the house with an electic mix of antiques and collectables, as well as southwest decor. Tastefully put together, without clutter or those fussy dust-collectors. Every room, including bedrooms, has an electric fire that keeps you cozy warm. The home is well-stocked with everything you need to cook and entertain in the kitchen (including wine classes and a corkscrew), and relax in the bedrooms/baths (big shower and tub). Just bring yourself and your suitcase of casual and comfy clothes.

Don't forget hiking shoes... there's a trail out the back side of the house that leads down the hill. It connects with trails on property of the Bureau of Land Management. I discovered several paths that led thru trees, ravines and then up along the ridge. Follow the trail to the end and you'll be treated to a breath-taking view of the valley. I hiked one to two miles every day with my beagle Penny. While there were foot prints from shoes and dogs, bike tracks, and horseshoe imprints (telling me the trail was safe and well used), I rarely met anyone else. The easy access to the hiking trail was one of my favorite parts of the stay.

I'm an artist and spent two weeks in late January at Casa Apache on sabbatical creating a new collection of abstract art for my next art show. The local was perfect for inspiration, creating and quite time. With an easy drive to town for a visit to the art galleries on Canyon Road.

Three girlfriends joined me for the last weekend; the second bedroom and adjacent casita was perfect for us.

Especially appreciated the dog-friendly welcome. My senior beagle Penny enjoyed the great outdoors as much as I did. We even found a sunny spot next to the French doors for her afternoon naps.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words. Many thanks too for giving a description of the accessibility of the hiking trails nearby. For future readers of this testimonial I did want to share that the home is in Santa Fe. It is approx. 10 miles to the plaza downtown. Many thanks again. Your beagle is adorable. Hope you'll consider coming back to our homes for your annual visits to Santa Fe! with gratitude, Francis

Great house, great outdoors.

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights here and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect place. The location feels remote and private but is a quick and easy trek into town. The house and casita were perfect for three adults and three kids under 4. The kids loved exploring the woods around the house and the adults loved sitting around the fire pit and gazing at the unbelievable Santa Fe night sky. I have nothing but good things to say and can’t wait to make another trip here.

Clean and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Great location off the beaten path. We enjoyed our time here and loved the proximity to everything. Only small negative issue is that the coffee machine needs updating. Not a big deal considering all the other amenities. Deer walked on property in the mornings and remnants of other wildlife are nearby, which was nice to see.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the kind words and 5 stars. Had we known you were having an issue with the coffee pot, would have switched out a new one asap for you. Many thanks for brining to our attention. We work our hardest to earn the 5 stars we receive so thanks so much for the 5 star review. Come see us again at one of our 6 vrbo homes in Santa Fe. Again thanks Francis
