Property description

Please Note: Over 80 additional reviews from our guest book can be seen at the end of the 'Owner Info' section of this VRBO profile.

If the country life is something that calls you, this recently renovated casita on our rural property just north of Santa Fe is the place for you! It has all of the amenities to make your visit comfortable...dishwasher, stove/oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, coffee maker, coffee grinder, blender, laundry area with washer and dryer, and wood-burning stove. Expansive views, the Rio Grande, Nambe Falls...this is horse country, and the area has maintained its historic, Northern NM roots.

The views of the Sangre de Christo mountains outside your bedroom window are breathtaking, and the magnificent sunsets, seen from the kitchen window or front door, provide you with a 'light show' nearly every evening. The quaint and lovely winery just down the road from us (Estrella del Norte) offers the best of Northern NM wines, and literally and figuratively gives you a flavor of the countryside.

Our roosters will let you know that 'morning has broken', and there will be a supply of 'horse candy' in the barn so that you can 'make friends' with our burros, Miss Bea and Miss Daisy, if you want to!! You can interact with our animals (the goats and chickens are friendly, too!) or stay toward the front of the property and just enjoy their sounds and energy...which ever feels right to you!

We are near several small towns (Pojoaque, Espanola, Chimayo), local places of interest (Santa Fe Opera, Sanctuario de Chimayo, Nambe Falls), several museums/historical areas, and numerous Resort-Casinos (Buffalo Thunder Golf Resort & Casino and The Santa Claran are two of our favorites), so there is shopping, sight-seeing and entertainment within minutes of our place. There are several wonderful restaurants within 15 minutes of our place, and Leonardo's aunt owns a world-famous, authentic Northern NM restaurant called Rancho de Chimayo about 25 minutes away. So...you can choose a rural, quiet type of experience, or enjoy night-life, athletic & cultural activities. dining out and shopping...or do what we do, and enjoy the best of both worlds!

Come enjoy the art, culture, scenery, and people of Northern New Mexico...truly unique and unforgettable.

Santa Fe in 'the national spotlight': CBS Sunday Morning recently featured a segment on Santa Fe that highlights our unique design culture. The segment was titled 'By Design: Santa Fe Style'. The report mentions Canyon Road, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, Maria Benitez Institute for Spanish Arts, Museum of Indian Arts & Culture, Santa Fe Opera, Santa Fe Plaza, Santa Fe Railyard, El Zaguan (James L. Johnson House) and the Historic Santa Fe Foundation, La Casa Sena Restaurant and La Fonda Santa Fe Hotel. Taos comes in for mention also, particularly Taos Pueblo as the inspiration for Santa Fe Style.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I am a medicinal aromatherapist, and my practice, Shining Sun Aromatherapy, is located on the other side of the same building which houses the casita. My husband, Leonardo, is the craftsman behind the beautiful work in the apartment, and he does everything with skill, flair and heart. I am the decorator of the pair! As he always says, he can build the house, but I make it a home. We are a great team. We love our animals, and keeping things neat around the property, but not manicured. We want to maintain the natural feel of the place. Beginning in the spring of 2011, we plan to plant medicinal plants on our 1.5 irrigated acres of land, and begin to bring Shining Sun Farm into fruition!

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
The casita is located across from our house, the main house on the property. I was drawn to the rural nature of this area, and the fact that the old Northern NM culture is still alive and well here. My husband grew up in El Rancho, just up the road from Nambe, and his family lives throughout the area...we had the guest house/studio on the property, and renovated part of it to be the home of Shining Sun Aromatherapy, and the back portion to be a vacation rental property because of the strong pull this area has to people drawn by the beauty of the Southwest, the unique art and culture of this area, and the local farming culture that still thrives in this area...every town has farmers markets, including the fabulous one in Santa Fe.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
For people who love rural areas and farm animals, and miss this in their lives, this is a chance to be on a beautiful property with breathtaking views, up close and personal to these wonderful companions. (We also have three wonderful dogs). You are centrally located to Santa Fe, Taos, and Nambe Falls...lots to see and do, but, nestled in the cottonwoods, it all seems a million miles away. Because we love animals so much...we have designated our casita as 'animal friendly', because we know how difficult it can be to travel with your pets and find lovely accommodations.
