Why Bruno A. chose North Hills

Its proximity to the plaza while still being in a secluded and private development makes this home an ideal location for those wishing to be close to downtown yet in a private, upscale neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle.

What makes this villa unique

The nearby Dale Ball trail system has miles of walking and/or mountain biking trails easily accessible within walking distance of the home. Also few homes in the area have both a pool and hot tub.

this property exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

we would recommend this house to anyone, it was amazing. comfortable, relaxing, beautiful and the owners bent over backwards to help when we had a question. Not a better place to stay in Santa Fe, close to town, right on a trail and if you like to cook it is a gourmet kitchen...

A perfect place to enjoy all Santa Fe has to offer

  • 5 of 5

Every detail was attended to in this lovely home, including a beautifully decorated Christmas tree. We enjoyed a magical family Christmas with our adult children, skiing (even though snow was sparse this year) and sampling all the great restaurants and shops in town. Location is ideal. There is enough room for two families if necessary. Everything was immaculate and the owners are very informative, attentive and accommodating regarding anything you may need to make your stay special. Cannot recommend this property highly enough. We had a wonderful stay and would go back in a heartbeat!

Idyllic location for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our gracious host had the property immaculately cleaned and ready for us when we arrived at this stunning yet extremely comfortable home nestled in the hills outside of Santa Fe. With plenty of room to spread out and something for everyone in the family to enjoy, it was the idyllic location for our family's vacation. The drive in to town took less than 10 minutes, so access to all that Santa Fe has to offer was quick and easy--although the views from the deck enticed us to stay "at home" rather than go out most evenings, simply to enjoy the cool breeze and the panoramic view. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This home was truly stunning and was a perfect getaway for my family and I. This past Memorial day my family and I decided to spend the weekend in Santa Fe, NM and had the most amazing time staying here.Tucked away on Santa Fe Mountain with a beautiful open granite kitchen, spacious living room area, balcony with a beautiful view with a downstairs quarters including game/TV room, bar, large heated pool, lovely hot Jacuzzi, and sauna! With all the amenities I felt like I was at my own private resort. The bedrooms were are spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Also just a few steps away from the home were nice walking/hiking trails that we walked every morning surrounded by beautiful nature. I thought the home was in a perfect location being in the quiet serene mountains but yet only a short 10 min drive down to downtown Santa Fe or a 20 min drive up to be on top of Santa Fe mountain. The city of Santa Fe itself is a lovely small town to explore filled with many quaint shops, museums, restaurants, and bars. Staying in this beautiful home truly made my visit to this lovely city the most amazing experience. Bruno and Darren were also a pleasure to work with always responding to my emails immediately and being very accommodating to any requests we had. I highly recommend this home to anyone seeking in the Santa Fe area. It will forever be a cherish memory to my family and I that will last a lifetime.

Gorgeous Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Bravo! My family and I wanted a place where we could all be together comfortably. This house was everything we hoped for and more. Although we were close to the downtown area, plaza and shopping, we ended up spending most of our time enjoying all the amenities of this beautiful home. I truly felt like I was at a resort. Jumping in the pool after a dry sauna, then into the hot tub and repeat! Great hiking trails, not to mention the sunsets are healing to the soul.
