About Jesse White

We feel lucky to have the top-rated home and staff, in a town where you can't always count on managers and service providers to deliver what they advertise. We have forged many good friendships with guests of Casa del Oso, who return year after year to what they call their "Santa Fe Home." We love this home, and the neighborhood couldn't be better. We consider it an honor to provide top level accommodations and service to all our guests. Call Jesse and come see for yourself, why we love Casa del Oso!

Spectacular home nestled in the beautiful Santa Fe countryside.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be happier about our recent stay at this beautiful home! Our family (parents and three adult sons and their spouses) met here from LA, San Francisco, Chicago and Madison, WI for a family celebration of four birthdays. The property is literally 10 minutes from the Plaza, yet nestled on a beautifully landscaped lot with a western facing patio for viewing the spectacular sunsets. Inside, the house communicates the feel of the southwest, with artistically placed museum quality artifacts throughout the interior. We felt, quite pleasantly, like we were in a museum where we could enjoy each piece at our leisure. The layout of the house provided privacy for each couple, while also offering comfortable spaces for joining together. The kitchen was amply stocked with all the equipment needed and the pantry already had some basics to get us started. The beautifully set table for 8, just off the kitchen, was perfect for our whole family to share home cooked meals. We loved eating most of our breakfast and lunch meals outside at the patio table, enjoying the view and catching a cool morning breeze. Folks had to wait their turn for the hammock, but there were plenty of other comfortable spots for lounging on the patio. We took advantage of grilling out several meals on the big Weber Grill. Working with Jess was a pure delight. Jess is a fund of knowledge about sights to see and which restaurants to try. She was always available and ready to assist us in making our Santa Fe vacation a totally wonderful experience. Look no further if you can find the dates you need!! We will definitely return here if we plan another trip to Santa Fe!

Great home and Easy to work with

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a very private and quiet setting yet easy access to everything Santa Fe. This home has everything you need in abundance and Jessie was great to work with. We have stayed in many homes around the country and this one will be at the top of our list to return to.

Thanks for making our stay in Santa Fe so easy.

Spacious, well-equiped, impressive home

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after delayed flights at 2 am, but were immediately impressed by this classic Santa Fe pueblo style home. It is furnished beautifully, and the kitchen and dining area easily accommodated the 5 in our party. Very peaceful and elegant. Highly recommended.

Brunswick, Maine

The house was just as described and perfect for the family gathering that we had in Santa Fe.

  • 5 of 5

The house provided us with sleeping accommodations for six people and facilitated a family gathering of twelve people. We particularly appreciated the portal, with a table that could seat 6-8 people, comfortable couch, and hammock. The kitchen/dining area also provided the kind of social space that was important to us.

The house is large, clean, well equipped, and well maintained. As it is outside of town, it was pretty quiet.
