Sandia Park house description

Casa de Vista offers spacious living with a 360-degree view of New Mexico. It’s so quiet, you can only hear crickets and coyotes. Complete with a gourmet kitchen, wet bar, and outdoor grilling area with TV.

Wake up to an unobstructed 20-mile view of the mountains. From the coffee bar, pour yourself a strong cup of coffee, nibble on fresh fruit, and curl up in the sitting area with a book without leaving the master bedroom. My home includes a stationary recumbent bike and exercise equipment. This is your secluded, luxury home away from home on 14+ acres.

If you hike, bike, rock climb, ski, snow shoe, golf, fly fish, hunt, or soar...this property provides you easy access to some of the best in the country. You can hike/bike directly off the property for miles on private land—where you’ll find ancient fossils, petroglyphs, and pottery shards from previous visitors along a creek. Later that evening, you can star gaze in the dark skies from your very private patio off the bedroom, or watch one of the 400+ movies available in a home theater with popcorn next to the fireplace on a snowy day. Casa de Vista is a perfect romantic get-away, or a place to gather with family and friends.

After a few days, you might want to venture off the property…maybe. The club house to the nationally-rated Paako Ridge golf course is less than a 8-minute drive. Many say this 27-hole mountain course, designed by an award-winning architect, is the best in New Mexico. You can take flight in a sailplane out of Moriarty, staying up for hours in warm thermals rising off the desert in a high-performance glider.

Hike to the top of Sandia Crest, then drive back into history through the mining towns of Golden, Madrid, and Cerrillos, on your way to Santa Fe, only 45 minutes from the finest art, crafts, theater, music, museums and restaurants offered in the Southwest. Ride a hot air balloon over Albuquerque the next day.

Bandolier National Monument, site of ancestral pueblo and cliff dwellings, the Pecos Wilderness, and the famous Chaco Canyon are all day trips that usually start with a breakfast burrito. Welcome to New Mexico!

It's hard for me to believe, but I've done all the activities I've described above from my beautiful home when I'm not at work--and, now you can too. Casa de Vista is the perfect vacation home to rest, recreate, and explore the Land of Enchantment with family and friends. Only a 30-minute drive from the Albuquerque airport and to city amenities.

Hope to see you soon! Ted

                            Two couples stayed at Ted's home for eight days. The house is extremely spacious and luxurious with all the amenities one would need. Very quiet and relaxing with beautiful views. We are not particularly dog lovers but you cannot not love Seltzer. He asks nothing of his guests but is extremely grateful for being fed and petted. Easy access to Albuquerque and Santa Fe.

                            I can not imagine a better place to spend a week than at Ted's beautiful home! He has thought of everything you would ever need (and then some)! He has created the perfect blend of high end finishes while still making it feel comfortable and "homey"! Sunrise/sunset and the views are also amazing! As a dog lover - Seltzer the Wonder Dog made it even more amazing (and if you don't love dogs - don't worry - you will hardly notice he is there). To sum it up... you won't be disappointed!!

                            There were five adults, 3 of us from South Carolina, We met up with my sister-law and her husband from Las Vegas for a reunion. Everything that has been said before is right on the mark. What has not been said is how Ted is more than willing to make you as happy as he can. Our son cannot live without his WWE PPV'S and Ted even order it for us so he would not miss it. We have stayed at many VRBO's before and this one is by far the best. It is so neat and clean. It is everything plus more than described. If your not happy here you may as well stay home. We were really sad to go when our time had run out. We hope to be back next year. Be one of the lucky ones that get to stay here.

                            Another terrific stay at the house of our friend, Dr. T. (How else do you think of someone who graciously turns over his well-appointed house to you?) We use Dr. T's house as our base for excursions to places such as Old Town ABQ, Sandia Crest and Santa Fe. Looking for an open-plan house designed for entertaining? Check. (The kitchen at Dr. T's house is large enough for everyone to participate. You can dine indoors or on the large covered patio.) Like big mountain views? Check. Want a house with a nice golf course nearby? Check. Want access to hiking at your doorstep? Check. (There are also many other hiking trails within a short drive.) Need a high-altitude place to train for that next 10-K, half marathon or bike race? Check. (Dr. T has a road bike and a mountain bike. Use one of his, bring your own or arrange a term rental from one of the bike shops in ABQ. There is some serious bike riding done in NM.) You can do strength training at the nearby Vista Grande Community Center. They also offer Zumba and yoga classes. Dr. T's house is also good for folks looking for a quiet place to relax. The nearest neighboring house is hundreds of yards away. In case you get tired of outdoor activities (we never do), Dr. T has hundreds of movies. Thank you Dr. T!

                            This home is beautiful. It was exceptionally clean and well kept. The view around the home is also beautiful. It was nice to look out the windows at sunrise and see the view. It is quiet and there are no annoyances in the area. The road is good for walking. The owner was exceptionally nice and was available if needed. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils for cooking. The gas grill on the patio was great as we sat outside cooking and enjoying the view. I would definitely stay here again. Amazing place!

                            Upon arriving at this beautiful art-filled home, the view was breathtaking. Coyotes could be heard thus encompassing the natural beauty of the area. Once inside the home, it became our home away from home. We definitely overpacked considering the home was completely furnished with an abundance of items you would not even find in a 5 star all inclusive resort. This beautiful home is only minutes from the airport, so your travel days aren't lost in the commute. It's A hop, skip and jump to downtown Albuquerque for great dining, shopping and entertainment. Also, only a short breathtaking drive to Sante Fe. The most awesome thing is waking up, having coffee and watching the sunrise each morning on the veranda. And, being "germ-a-phobe's", we really appreciate your home being spotless and impeccably clean. Every bedroom has amazing views, but you may have to draw straws for the incredible master bedroom! A HUGH double shower, whirlpool bathtub, and a sitting area with coffee bar. The de'cor throughtout the entire home seems straight out of a magazine. Your home has a nice warm feeling with the luxury of being pampered. Everything that is important is right here in front of you. Our breakfasts and Bar-be-Que's were easily prepared, because the 'CHEF's KITCHEN' was fully stocked with every amenity, including spices, etc.. Being able to use the garage was a plus, since the dogs seemed excited to see us return each evening. The owner 'Ted' is very pleasant and the EPITOME of CUSTOMER SERVICE! Since he lives near Albuquerque, he was very helpful with recommendations for sightseeing, activities (especially golf) and restaurants. He has a wealth of knowledge about the area which was super helpful. To sum it up, it is a wildly beautiful, vigorous, welcoming, and exhilirating place!

                            My husband and I recently stayed at Ted's home. It was wonderful. Where to begin? Ted designed the home with the views in mind: during the day you have the mountains and that blue NM sky, while at night you have the stars. Everything was as stated and Ted was so very nice. We found lots of comfortable places to curl up with our books. Of course our eyes kept going back to the scenery. It was so quiet you could hear the stars twinkle at night. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to use to cook. We stopped at the store Ted recommends on the way there and stocked up on groceries and just popped them into the subzero fridge. Paako Golf is really only 10 minutes away and we played a couple of rounds there. The place was too beautiful to leave. Thank you, Ted. I especially appreciated how clean and well maintained the home is. Skye and Seltzer are the best behaved dogs I have ever seen. No problem at all. They never came to the table when we ate outside and they never tried to enter the house. They do not bark, they talk. We will return to this magical place and do highly recommend it to anyone wanting some quiet and some space.

                            We have stayed in many vrbo's all over the U.S. This by far has been the best. A beautiful home with amazing views and wonderful accommodations. Best stocked gourmet kitchen ever. The home is immaculate and uncluttered . Love the open design. The dinning area is spacious, a great place to gather for dinner then afterwards for playing cards and planning our next day events. Albuquerque and Santa Fe are easy rides in either direction. It was nice to come home after a full day of sightseeing and be greeted by Skyy & Seltzer with their tails wagging happy to see us. Ted, the owner was a pleasure to deal with, he was very prompt when responding to our emails & phone calls. Extremely prompt in refunding our security deposit a man true to his word. Thank you Ted for sharing your home. We highly reccomend this rental property.

                            Casa de Vista was as advertised, exceptional! Living in hot, humid, flat and congested Houston, we were looking for a few days of complete opposite, so when scanning the VRBO's in the vicinity of Albuquerque, Ted's home presentation caught our attention. Having traveled to Albuquerque several times, we always wondered about the possibility of finding a place to stay in the Sandia mountains to the east. A place that, number 1 would provide an exceptional view and number 2, be clean and up-to- date with all modern conveniences . . . while not far from the cultural advantages offered by Albuquerque. Ted's home provided all the above and much more and the only way you can describe it is, first class! Rather than the 20 mile view as advertised, I would guess the distant mountains at more like 40 miles. This is an exceptional contemporary home that has spared no expense in its finish and furnishings. We would have to believe that finding a home of this quality available to the public is indeed rare. Surely in the top 10% of VRBO properties nationwide!

                            A contemporary house, cleverly positioned to maximize the views of the beautiful scenery that surrounds it. Terrific hiking, biking and golfing are nearby. A big thank you to Dr. T for his hospitality and for making his home available to those of us who are not fortunate to live in a beautiful location. After staying in the house with us for a few days, one of our guests remarked about Dr. T: "I already like the man and I haven't even met him". We had the pleasure of meeting Dr. T during a previous visit to the area and share our guest's opinion.

                          About the owner: I'm a physicist in the defense industry. I want to share with you the beauty of New Mexico while staying in a contemporary casa that I designed and built. This is my home and you are my special guests.

                          Why the Owner Chose Sandia Park:
                          Scenic property only 45 minutes to Santa Fe and 30 minutes to central Albuquerque.

                          Hike off the property along a creek on private land. Drive along the scenic Turquoise Trail to Santa Fe for a day out shopping and site seeing. 10 minutes from Paa-ko Ridge Golf Club.
