About Michael Kaufman

My wife and I purchased this beautiful home and lived in it for five years.

Michael Kaufman purchased this house in 2004

Why Michael Kaufman chose New Mexico

This was our home and we're now looking to share it with others.

What makes this house unique

The beauty of the surrounding landscape and 360 degree views are spectacular. The house has sunrise and sunset views and the skies are gorgeous nearly every day. The wilderness areas nearby have great hiking - and the herd of elk in the BLM land is a great treat. The silence and stillness is compelling and very impacting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed very much the home. Our needs were met with the extras of beautiful sunsets, pure air and a shopping mall not far away I would highly recommend it to others.

Could not be better!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific vacation property to visit Santa Fe area. It is a beautiful, well designed home with everything you need. Great sunsets, tranquil, cool and calm patio for morning panoramic views of sky and horizons. Easy to move around area, easy to reach destinations beyond Santa Fe, as well as downtown, without sacrificing the peace and rest that can be soaked up by staying home. Well appointed interiors -- you truly experience the New Mexico -- pueblo / Spanish flavor. We were a couple enjoying time away, however as a 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath, it easily would accommodate larger groups. We enjoyed our week's stay and would choose this home again and again.

Marvelous Stay in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a marvelous 6 days at this property. The house is beautifully furnished and very comfortable for a party needing a master suite and two additional bedrooms. Homes in the neighborhood are widely spaced and the house is in a quiet peaceful setting – no traffic noise at all. It’s a good area for walking the neighborhood and the neighbors we met were very friendly and forthcoming about the area providing helpful suggestions about places to go and things to do.

TV service (including Netflix) and WiFi connections are excellent.

We could not have had a more pleasant and enjoyable stay. The description on VRBO is honest and accurate. You do need to know that the property is about 20 minutes from the Plaza in Santa Fe.

We cannot recommend the property any more highly. Thank you Michael & Zandra.

Beautiful home in a gorgeous setting! Home nicely and tastefully decorated. Comfortable furnishings

  • 5 of 5

The house makes a very nice setting for a quiet retreat away from home. In fact, everyone felt at home, including our friends from Southern France. We were able to cook (kitchen well equipped), relax, and enjoy the beautiful natural setting. This home is highly recommended. We will certainly return.

Sister's Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Five sisters had a great time visiting the Santa Fe area during our annual Sister's Weekend. We have been doing it for almost 30 years and have stayed in a variety of VRBO homes. This was by far one of the nicest places we've stayed. The beautiful home had lots of space to spread out with abundant bathrooms and everything was clean and tastefully decorated. Michael was extremely helpful and easy to contact. The location was great also. Michael supplied us with an abundance of information that made it easy to enjoy the surroundings. We were 20 minutes from Santa Fe and close enough to spend time at old town in Albuquerque and enjoy an awesome hot air balloon ride. In the other direction we visited Bandalier National Monument and the Anasazi ruins. And, of course we enjoyed the heart of Santa Fe with great food, a visit to the Loretto Chapel and indulged in a very relaxing Balinese massage at Absolute Nirvana. We only wish we could have spent a few more days in the peaceful surroundings of this beautiful home. The sunsets were incredible and the evenings so peaceful around the outdoor kiva fireplace. If we are lucky enough to come back to Santa Fe, we would love to stay in this home again! Thank you Michael.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We're very glad you enjoyed our home and your time in Santa Fe. We'd love to host another Sister's Weekend in the future.
