About the property

private home, 2 Bedroom, (Sleeps 5), 1 Bath

10 minute walk to plaza for great restaurants! 25 minutes to drive up to the Santa Fe Ski Basin on clear roads. Minimum lease period is 30 days and this property does not require a Santa Fe Short Term permit. ($84, average nighly rate FOR 30 DAYS OR MORE). This rate is not the nightly rate FOR LESS THAN 30 DAYS.

My late father, Edward Quintana and many friends & family helped to complete the construction, built this home in 1958. It is a very special home - fully remodeled in 2009. My parents cound not afford new furniture back in 1960, they elected to have many pieces hand made by an unknown crafter from Chimayo, New Mexico. We have added newer pieces, providing a comfortable and welcoming stay. The home is in a quiet neighborhood that is amazingly close to all of the attractions that make Santa Fe so unique. We wanted a space with lots of natural light and warm and inviting rooms that would also be ADA compliant. This vacation rental incorporates a lot of art from local artists, including carvings from Ben Ortega, paintings from Vallie Weingarten, Sebastian Picker, and water colors by Ann Marie Trapp. One stay and your too will appreciate the wonderful aspects that this special Santa Fe home has to offer.

Peaceful abode with scenic views!!

  • 5 of 5

This vacational rental was one of those that was even better in person. Very clean and tastefully decorated!! There is a beautiful hill top view of the mountains from the living room , with a sliding glass onto the patio-perfect for evening dinning! The kitchen was stocked methodically and made cooking easy!

The house walls are lined with beautiful south west paintings and charming shelfs with interesting books.

This house was a pleasure to vacation at!!

Beautiful house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here over Christmas and it was great! I'm originally from Santa Fe, so I wanted some place with a great location for our visit. The house, especially the kitchen and bathroom, have been updated very well. I love the mix of flooring and design throughout. And they'd even decorated a bit for the holidays, which was a thoughtful touch.

Chris and Joseph were super helpful while we were there, always responding quickly anytime we had a question. And understanding that we had a toddler traveling for the first time who wasn't always super thrilled with her new routine and vocal about that.

We'd love to stay here again when we make it back to Santa Fe, maybe for Fiestas one year since the location is perfect for walking to Zozobra!

Great family stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed this property immensely. Nice central location with easy access to the best of Santa Fe. We enjoyed the nearby park as well to exercise both the kids and dog. It's very nice to cook your own meals and rent a dvd from the nearby dvd rental store.

Beautiful views, centrally located, nicely renovated - wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for the week of Spring Break 2012. It was our first trip to Santa Fe. We had five people in our party - me, my husband, my mother, and our three kids (7, 4, & 1). I expected this house to be nice based on prior reviews, and it was even better than expected. The house was immaculate, beautifully decorated and renovated, and had amazing views of the mountains from every room. It also had a small yard that my kids loved to play in, and a hill behind it that led us on a very nice nature walk and featured even more amazing mountain views. It was easy to walk from the house to the Plaza, and there is a playground/park on the way so the kids burned off energy there. The house was also very close to the road to the ski mountain (Artist Rd.), which was handy as we took the kids up to a snowy area there to play and sled. As for amenities, there is a flatscreen TV (with cable) above the fireplace in the living room, a dishwasher, nice frig, microwave, coffee maker, and gas stove (and cooking equipment) in the kitchen, and a HE washer/dryer in the bathroom. The owners, Chris and Joseph, were very nice and accommodating and Chris was quite helpful when we locked ourselves out of the house one of the nights we were there (they live in an apartment below the rental house so they are very close by if there is a problem). Another thing to note is the very affordable price - we felt like we were getting a steal compared to what the surrounding hotels (with much less room and less amenities) were offering. We loved Santa Fe and this house and I recommend both highly!

Wonderful, modern, clean and perfectly situated!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (and our dog) stayed here for a relaxing vacation this winter, and we could not have been happier with our stay! We've used VRBO before with mixed results (one terrible experience with a neurotic homeowner in Malibu who dropped in on us daily), but this was definitely a four-star experience! Private, situated in a gorgeous neighborhood a short walk from the main drag, the house is modern, clean, has a *great* bathroom and tub and very nicely furnished and decorated with local art and mid-century furniture. We couldn't have been happier! Nice, cool owners who obviously know what they're doing. We had a problem with a breaker needing to be re-set and they fixed it right away. We'll definitely be back if/when we're in Santa Fe again!
