Cielo Grande condo description


This third-floor (top floor) condo, nicely decorated southwestern style, looks over the city to the Plaza, and beyond to the Santa Fe Mountains. Walk a couple blocks to a shopping mall with an excellent supermarket and a variety of fine stores. Walk another 6 blocks and you're at the famed Plaza, the heart of Santa Fe. The Santa Fe Opera is a five-minute drive. Dozens of fine southwestern restaurants are within a few minutes drive (as is everything in Santa Fe).

NOTE: We have a new 32' flat screen TV in the bedroom, and a new 47' flat screen TV in the living room.

High Speed internet--wireless.

The kitchen is fully equipped; all you need is groceries to be operational.

Activities available are too numerous to account for: hiking, rock climbing, Indian ruins at Bandolier National Monument, festivals and crafts (Spanish and Indian Markets in summer), Fiesta/Balloon Festival in the fall, 5 museums including the Georgia O'Keefe Museum, the International Museum of Folk Art, and Skiing in the winter, 18 miles distant.

PS: Horseback Riding! Fred Espinosa, a very savvy, experienced wrangler, has a beautiful set up in Tesuque, just a few miles up 285/84, with a range of beautiful horses and trails. Reasonable rates. Call Lori, 575 751 6180

                            The place was great for our family vacation. It is very close to all the attractions and the house has everything you need for your stay. I would highly recommend this place for anyone interested in visiting Santa Fe.

                            We spend a long weekend with our boys age 14 and 20 for the weekend that their spring breaks overlapped. The condo was quiet, the residents we came across were nice, the condo was very clean. While we did not do any cooking in the condo, the utensils and dishes to do so were there had we wanted to. We really appreciated the little instructional notes around the condo and we were just very comfortable. I called the maintenance person with a question and found him very approachable and helpful. I'd refer a friend to stay here in a heartbeat.

                            We stayed here for our ski trip at ski Santa Fe. Perfect location from mountain, very close to plaza, and grocery stores less than 1 mile away. We were amazed when we walked into this condo; it was clean, cozy, comfortable and a beautiful view of the city and mountains. We would recommend it to anyone visiting Santa Fe, NM. The wonderful city offers so much amenities year round. To the visiting skier we recommend renting equipment from the Hyde State Park instead of Ski Santa Fe recreation, due to the price and time of rentals. To sum this review up, we will be visiting again and sticking with this condo. FYI a new 47"TV was installed during our stay. :)))

                            Manager response: We love to hear how happy our renters are and look forward to seeing you again; as you said, Santa Fe has much to offer in every season. Besides the new 47" TV, we added a new Queen bed in the 2nd bedroom recently, and soon we will be painting for a fresh look. We try to offer what we hope to find when we travel: a second home that is comfortable, clean, and nicely decorated.

                            Our stay in this condo was perfect in every way. It was squeaky clean, very comfortable, and all appliances and fixtures worked as designed. In addition, it was so very attractive. Look at the posted pictures closely and you will see that the furniture and accessories have been carefully chosen to reflect a southwestern flavor consistent with its setting. We would recommend this property highly to anyone looking for accommodations in Santa Fe.

                            This is a great place to stay. Views were wonderful, enjoyed coffee on the deck looking out at the mountains each morning. Traffic noise loud but we could tune that out and enjoy the views. We walked to plaza, about a mile each way. Condo was clean, and decorated well. It is well equipped with all the things you will need. Great home away from home. I was traveling with my sister, I had the bedroom with the twin beds. Owners should think about up dating mattresses on twin beds. We loved the condo will stay again.

                            Manager response: And we will be happy to have you back! Since I talked to this renter after their stay, I asked some of our guests who return to this condo every year what they thought about new mattresses in the second bedroom--the King in the main bedroom is wonderful--and most said that a Queen in the 2nd BR would be even better--so that is what we're doing: A NEW QUEEN bed is on its way! Some other updating is taking place too so come and see us soon. The VIEWS are outstanding and so is the location, as this renter pointed out. We ask for and welcome such thoughtful responses so we know what we need to do to be even better.

                            Very comfortable, quiet, clean and serene place to stay. Having stayed in other VRBO rentals (which we didn't like as well), we truly appreciated how very clean this one was, and the inclusion of laundry and dish soap, as well as shampoo. Very thoughtful. We would stay there again. We had a problem with the shower-head malfunctioning, and the owner came within minutes to fix the problem. Location is close to downtown Santa Fe.

                            This condo was just what we needed! It was very well stocked with everything you could need/want! There is an Albertsons just across the street, so we bought groceries & even grilled burgers out one night on the community grill. It had a really nice balcony, that we ate our meals on & especially enjoyed mornings with our coffee. Be aware it is right on a very busy road, so at peak traffic time it can be pretty loud, but no issues sleeping due to road or even in the condo. We are walkers & were able to walk safely thru the neighborhoods, which was nice. We would definitely stay here again!

                            We stayed in this unit for 4 nights.  At first glance it seemed quite nice, and it really can be.  The location is great, about a mile from the plaza as the bird fly's (not walking distance), but close enough to everything else too. The unit itself, is just as the pictures show, but a bit smaller. The master bedroom is fine, bed is comfortable. The second bedroom is very small, almost too small for two sharing adults, but a great room for your kids. The patio is large and has a nice table and chairs. But my biggest concern was the shower head which really needs to be replaced. It was old and the water flow was pretty weak. I did mention this to the owner so hopefully he may have changed it by now. The other concern was that even though the housekeeper keeps the unit clean, the tile grout needs serious cleaning. I have tile throughout my house and I have it steam cleaned once a year to keep it looking good. The tile is very clean, but the grout desperately needs cleaning and doesn't look very good. While we were there, it became very cold and we needed to use the heater. (Unfortunately we couldn't use the fireplace because they are repairing the chimney or something???) The heater wouldn't go on because the thermostat was not working. I called the owner who returned my call several hours later in the day. By then I had replaced the batteries and made it work for a few hours but somehow it was preset for 55 degrees at night and we spent a cold night in the unit and were unable to get this changed. Overall we had a good time while staying in this unit. The kitchen is well equipped and there are extra towels and sheets. There was firewood which would be nice to use when the fireplace is fixed. I am sure we would stay here again if these few items were repaired.

                            Recommended for: Girls getaway, sightseeing, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers.

                            Manager response: We're grateful for this thoughtful response that confirms the great location of the condo, the faithful presentation of the web photos, and that the guest would return again if a few things are taken care of--and they will be. We've called our maintenance chief to replace the shower head and check the tile grout. The fireplaces were closed in ALL of the condos for inspection to be sure that they are safe since some were not. Now that warm weather is around the corner, all chimneys are being replaced so they will be in perfect working order by late fall or early winter. As all of our other great reviews have shown, we pay a lot of attention to the condo and our many returning guests have been happy with all the new changes: new stone tile in kitchens and bathrooms and brand new leather couch (queen sofa-bed). We ask all of our guests to know what we need to do to keep them returning and we pay attention. Please read all the reviews and call us if you have questions. We work hard to keep our guests happy and returning each year.

                          Manager info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About: We both have a great love for Santa Fe so we had to have a second home here to escape the Texas heat. Even when it's hot or cold in Santa Fe, it's moderate. It's a place you'll want to return to often because its small size belies the breadth of art, restaurants, and scenic discoveries that abound, most within a 10 minute drive, others as day trips.

                          Why Cielo Grande:
                          The condo has a perfect location: easy drive to the city and all areas around the city, ample free parking in lot close to elevator, AC in summer and wonderful views. After a long day shopping, hiking, or walking the plaza, it's nice to drive 2-3 minutes to our home out of the fray.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          Sweeping view of Santa Fe Mtns. and City. Air conditioned in summer. Laundry INSIDE the condo. Well-stocked with linens, paper products, and kitchen cooking ware and utensils. You just need your food!
