"This house is really beautiful and has magnificent views. But above that it really feels like a home. It's obviously a very personal place. Immaculately kept in every detail, it's truly a find. And it's location is spectacular. We had a hot sunny afternoon on Saturday followed by brilliant snowfall the next morning. Very inspiring."

"Our family stayed here in December. The house was very comfortable, with a kitchen that included pretty much every known cooking item. The two bathrooms were recently remodeled, and had several neat and modern features. It was snowing during our stay, so we were not able to enjoy the backyard barbecue and pizza oven, but the house was cozy and warm. The owners have a great taste for decorations, and the house felt very lived in and loved. We found the view very relaxing and enjoyable. The house is set apart from its neighbors on a good size lot so as to provide privacy, but a close drive to town."

"This was an excellent destination home. Much better than even anticipated.
We used it as a launch for visiting Santa Fe, the Balloon Fest in Albuquerque and sight seeing throughout the area. Ending each evening cooking out, visiting by fire pit, and enjoying magnificent sunsets. I highly recommend this property. A slight word of caution: the house has many steps, and different levels. We had a few near misses and a couple of bumps. We are three couples in late 60's."

Great Home Located Close to downtown Santa Fe, wonderful owners
"I spent the month of March 2015 in this wonderful home. It is an easy 5-10 minute walk to downtown Santa Fe. A few years back I spent 4 months in Rita and Tom's smaller casita. I loved the location. So when I decided to come back to Santa Fe, I checked with them first and found the "big" house open for March and snapped it up. And I'm glad I did. Even though it was only me renting, I enjoyed having the extra space in the big house.
This home is very comfortable and welcoming. One simple thing (that I also found in the smaller casita) was a coat rack by the main door. What a convenient thing to have. You might not think such a small detail would be so useful, but it was.
The big house is well laid out with two bedrooms and two bathrooms plus a dedicated office. The office is something I really enjoyed and used often. The house and the entire property is well maintained. Tom was often out doing work like spreading more gravel in the driveway just to make sure renters didn't have to slog through any mud on the way into the homes.
The house was immaculate, well decorated and comfortable. It felt like a home and not a rental. The kitchen was spacious and well laid out. I stayed in the larger bedroom and the bed was very comfortable.
Amazingly this home is only 5-10 minutes walking distance from downtown Santa Fe. I walked to the post office, museums, bookstores and restaurants. It was wonderful not having to drive everywhere. I have rented vacation homes in 5 states and in no other rental have I found this walking access to a downtown area.
Make sure you check out the notebook the owners have compiled. It contains restaurant information, an urgent care location, places of interest, and it even has detailed easily understood instructions for using the DVD player in the living room.
This is a great rental, with incredible owners. I highly recommend the big house. Thanks Rita and Tom for helping to make my stay in Santa Fe a great one."
