Owner info

About the owner: David and Wendy enjoy hiking and being out in nature and love living in Santa Fe where the sunsets and skies are breathtaking. David has two wonderful grown kids and Both Wendy and David are semi-retired. David is an avid golfer and hiker and Wendy is a sculptor and painter. They enjoy traveling and together have been on great adventures in Italy, Vancouver, Greece, Turkey and various states in the US. They like dogs and allow well-behaved ones to stay at their Sky Island Casitas. They love their property with gorgeous views in Santa Fe and are happy to share it with others. They see a lot of interesting films, listen to speakers, take cooking classes, enjoy live theater and all kinds of music. They enjoy meeting the many interesting people who have come to Sky Island Casitas for the last 6 years.

Why the Owner Chose Southeast:
David fell in love with Santa Fe, and after visiting as often as possible from Austin Texas for many years, he found that the property he often stayed at was for sale. So he bought it and chose to share it with others. Wendy came later and was blown away by the beautiful view and lovely gardens. They love meeting the people who stay here and are not surprised that many return year after year.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the privacy and quiet of this property combined with the convenience of being minutes from hiking or downtown. We are surrounded on all sides by undeveloped land. We watch magnificent sunsets and lightening shows from our balcony. Sky Island Casitas has three houses on the property, but they all are secluded and private.
