About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + 2BR apt, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

At 5400 square feet, this luxury home has up to 7 bedrooms and 5-1/2 baths all under one roof. Just a 4 block walk to the shopping, restaurants, and fun of the Plaza, it is the perfect place for a family reunion, 'girls getaway' or executive retreat to enjoy gorgeous mountain views as well as overlooking local parks, the Cathedral towers, and the Statehouse. A complete modern renovation and interior design complements the open feel of the beautiful skies and mountains while assuring the highest degrees of privacy and comfort. The contemporary and transitional furnishings and lustrous diamond plaster walls and modern art to create a very unique environment for your Santa Fe vacation.

Oak floors, granite countertops, steel, glass, and leather furniture are found through out the house. The Living room and Dining room are spacious and open with large windows showing the city and mountain views and sunsets. The 11 foot long granite dining table sits 10-12 quite comfortably. The eat-in Kitchen has plenty of granite counter workspace and quality stainless steel fixtures, including a Bosch dishwasher and oven range. The Master Suite has a pillow top queen bed, large flat screen TV/DVD, walk-in glass tile rain shower, twin sinks, and separate soaking tub. It connects to the Study as well as has French doors directly to the garden. The Study/5th BR has a large flat screen TV/DVD surround-sound entertainment center, computer with monitor, Wifi, a queen size leather sleeper, and a full bath with tub and shower. The other 2 bedrooms on the main floor are isolated and share a full bath. One has two twin beds and a TV (perfect for kids or singles) and the other has a queen bed and cable and Wifi access. The oversized Guest Suite has a queen bed, TV/DVD, Wifi, sitting area, and its full bath is wheelchair accessible with roll-in shower. The house includes an exercise room, a massage room (which was once the bomb shelter!), a separate Billiards room, and full laundry.

The house is engineered to be as efficient and environmentally friendly as a house of this stature can be. The on-demand hot water, efficient baseboard heat, modern central Air Conditioning on the main floor, water recovery systems, 18-inch thick walls, and new windows and doors show how environmental concerns can be incorporated into your comfort and everyday luxury.

The Garden provides full privacy while allowing grand views of the mountains. The patio area has a dining table seating 12 in a protected area with an outdoor wood fireplace, with a separate seating area with firepit. A separate walled area allows sunning on chaise lounges or play, depending on your whim. The horseshoe pit allows outdoor group entertainment. The large evergreen tree and outdoor sculpture accentuate the natural and creative atmosphere of Santa Fe.

In addition, there is a 1400 square foot 2-bedroom apartment, which can be made available for a larger family reunion or holiday. It has its own entrance and parking. The great room has a living area with convertible queen sleeper sofa, TV/DVD, a dining area with table and chairs for 6, and a granite counter, stainless steel full kitchen. The two bedrooms share a full bath and each has a full size bed and garden views. The apartment also has a full laundry. The apartment is not available except in connection with a rental of the main house.

The house is a short walk to the Plaza and its shopping, restaurants, and galleries, so there is no need to worry about parking and getting around downtown Santa Fe. It is also near a municipal playground and swimming pool and gymnasium, as well as on the way to local spas, skiing, and the Opera.

Contacts are available for the extra help you made need to have the truly relaxing visit you are looking for. Cooking staff, cleaners, or even massage therapists will make your stay perfect.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to let you know that we had a great time in Santa Fe staying in your wonderful home. It really worked out perfect for my family of 12 and if we come back to NM we will want to stay at your place again. Plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms, lots of hot water, full stocked kitchen......the perfect location! We walked to the plaza everyday....the 20 somethings sometimes walked to the Starbucks more than once a day.

All in all we had a darn near perfect Thanksgiving. SO.....thank you so very much for opening your home, it was great and I will be letting all my friends know what a perfect place it is!

Wonderful home and location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth annual family ski vacation and this rental was our favorite so far. Our group includes seniors, adults, young adults, kids and a toddler.

The location is so convenient, being just 30 minutes from Ski Santa Fe and a few minutes walk to The Plaza. Shopping necessities are minutes away.

We loved the huge, private back yard! It would be an especially wonderful place to be in the spring and summer to really take advantage of the outdoor cooking and dining arrangements.

For our group, the house worked out really well. It provided areas for privacy when needed but also space for all of us to gather. The home was clean, well maintained and provides great views. We cooked most meals so the large, well-equipped kitchen was ideal. Beds were comfortable (we had air mattresses for the younger set) and the 4.5 bathrooms worked out well, even for our big group.

We truly enjoyed our stay in Santa Fe and were delighted with this rental. It is the only rental in our four years of doing the annual family gathering that we will seek to rent for a second time. The owner is really great to work with so making the arrangements was easy and uncomplicated.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words! Easy walking access to the Plaza and quick drive to Ski Santa Fe are part of why I love my home. You're right about the back garden and entertaining space in spring and summer--you are yours are welcome to gather again here to enjoy them!

Large attractive home with lots of sleeping options and rooms

  • 3 of 5

​The living area of the main apartment is large and airy and adequate - big-enough kitchen adequately stocked, enough bathrooms, well placed. Good ​appliances in ​kitchen and laundry. Lots of TV sets. Two very large bedrooms ​with private baths. The other bedrooms were adequate with decent beds. The two sofa beds were bearable. Plenty of hot water. Decent lighting. The ​wide ​open white décor is attractive.

The space was adequate for our group of 9 adults and 6 small children

The main rooms do, indeed, have an open design - no unnecessary walls, no door latches on interior doors, no window coverings (except ​inside the windows to the back yard), extremely few noise​-damping materials​.​ Even normal conversation is well amplified. There is virtually no privacy between inside spaces, from outside, or ​between renters in the ​two apartment​s.​

The furnishings are adequate. All of the seating is either leather or wood or plaster. The custom made glass kitchen table top is unusual, with square corners and only-slightly sanded edges. The ​custom built ​kitchen-nook seating bench is unusually high​​.

The house ​is perfect for tall people. All or most of the bathroom sinks are higher than the norm​.

The rooms are open but not ​with ​a ​"​great-room​"​ layout​ - visually, the kitchen is ​completely separate from the dining ​and​ living rooms.

The back yard is big, with a ​mesh ​draining grate between the yard and house, two large concrete ​dining/sitting/play areas. The house is surrounded by a southwest desert-style yard.

If one wants to be close to the square of Old Town Santa Fe, with lots of ​sleeping spaces, this house fits the bill.

Owner's Response: Your review sounds like my home was not the best choice for your 6 small children and 9 adults. The photos and description show that the rooms are open, airy, and have diamond plaster walls, wood floors and leather furniture. The reviews by other extended family stays are 5 stars and found the 5400 sq ft of my home large enough for their needs.

We had the perfect Santa Fe experience.

  • 5 of 5

This house is a gem for those that want to be in the heart of Santa Fe. We enjoyed the roominess that allowed our teens to be doing a puzzle in the living room while the littles were out back playing tetherball and adults drank wine while cooking in the amazing kitchen. The apartment downstairs was perfect to separate the “louder” guests [8 and unders with a sitter] while adults took a lovely afternoon nap after hiking Tent Rocks or visiting Chimayo. We loved the 5 minute walk to downtown, dinner at our favorite Vinaigrette restaurant and then home for s’mores around the firepit in the back yard. Our friends ranged from a 1 year old to us middle aged folks and the house perfectly accommodated us all, our laundry, and a birthday dinner for 10 that fit perfectly around the large dining table. We had the perfect Santa Fe experience.

Family vacation stay

  • 5 of 5

Rented this property for a family vacation - plenty of room for eight adults, young and old. Easy walking distance to downtown Santa Fe restaurants, museums, and galleries (especially nice since parking is difficult downtown). Plenty of room to spread out and relax - basement pool table and enclosed sunny backyard were big hits with the younger crowd.

Great Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect house for our girl's weekend! We had 10 girls staying in the main house and everyone had enough room to spread out and not be right on top of each other. The house is amazing for entertaining, especially the kitchen! The walk into town was the perfect distance and the weather couldn't have been better for January in Santa Fe. Thank you so much for making our trip an incredible one that we will always remember.

It was an easy walk to the Plaza from this roomy house. There were 10 of us, and we had a wonderful time. Just one little heads-up:

As an extra bonus the downstairs bathroom that goes with the bedroom next to the pool table has a shower into which you can roll a wheelchair. If you need to use this shower, just be aware that the water will flow over the entire bathroom floor and possibly onto the bedroom rug if the shower is a long one. The drain is not clogged, just too small, considering the tile is banked the wrong way. Be careful to mop floor when you leave, or the standing water could cause mold.
