Feels like you are in national park by yourself. The condo has great porch to take in the scenery. Wild birds all around. Easy drive to the Plazas or to the Railyard. If you want to stay the condo has everything you need.

Perfect seclusion

  • 5 of 5

A girlfriend and I planned a weekend get away in Santa Fe. This time was ideal for us. It is quaint and quiet. The natural scenery is beautiful! One night we went to ship in Santa Fe, then came back and cooked dinner. The Kitchen had everything we needed. One night we stopped mimosas by the outdoor fire and watched the moon rise over three mountains. We could not ask food anything better. It was clean, cozy, well-defined, and beautiful decor. If I'm ever in Santa Fe again, I would definite stay there.

Really enjoyed my stay. Was very relaxing and quite. Internet and cell service is limited and the TV was small and could afford to be mounted in a different location, but for some one that is not planning on staying around the house much, it is a nice place to stay. Water pressure could be better as well.

Remote, Adequate, Affordable

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this rental.

We liked that the house was surrounded by nature though it is quite a far distance from town...about a 25 minute drive. The house was well-stocked and had everything we needed. Our favorite features were the two very (!) comfy beds and the electric fireplace in the living room. Our least favorite aspects were the carpet-covered hole at the bottom of the stairs, which we had to be careful of, and the shower. It was awkward getting in and out of the shower and the water pressure was always very low. Sometimes the water wasn't hot and we had to wait. Because we needed to keep the room closed off to keep the heat in the living room, we never used the attached sunroom though we could imagine doing so in warmer weather.

Given all this, the price felt about right.

The owner was pleasant and responsive, via email. Though they are small things, I found all the notes and literature about and in the house to be a bit too much and didn't like that the cleaning lady came in the house about 5-10 minutes before the 11:00 am check-out, while we were still bringing our suitcases downstairs, and seemed annoyed we were still there. I would have preferred a bit of a grace period (10-15 minutes) and for her to have waited outside.

All-in-all, we were very satisfied with this rental and would enjoy staying there again should we ever need another place in Santa Fe.

Enjoyable stay and good value.

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much. The property was very private even though we had someone renting the studio apt next to us, we never heard them. We loved the sunroom and convenient kitchen. There are a few updates and repairs that need attention but we were told they will be taken care of. Overall our experience was very nice. Love this little casita! Very cozy! Great value!
