Property description

Vista de Santa Fe offers spacious living with a 360-degree view of New Mexico. It’s so quiet, you can only hear crickets and coyotes. Complete with a gourmet kitchen, wet bar, and outdoor grilling area with TV. I've taken a one-year break from VRBO to travel...before that, I hosted guests on VRBO for 5 years, and EVERY guest rated my property, and their stay, a 5-star experience. :) Contact me directly for an accurate price quote.

Wake up to an unobstructed 20-mile view of the mountains. From the coffee bar, pour yourself a strong cup of coffee, nibble on fresh fruit, and curl up in the sitting area with a book without leaving the master bedroom. My home includes a stationary recumbent bike and exercise equipment. This is your secluded, luxury home away from home on 14+ acres.

If you hike, bike, rock climb, ski, snow shoe, golf, fly fish, hunt, or soar...this property provides you easy access to some of the best in the country. You can hike/bike directly off the property for miles on private land—where you’ll find ancient fossils, petroglyphs, and pottery shards from previous visitors along a creek. Later that evening, you can star gaze in the dark skies from your very private patio off the bedroom, or watch one of the 400+ movies available in a home theater with popcorn next to the fireplace on a snowy day. Casa de Vista is a perfect romantic get-away, or a place to gather with family and friends.

After a few days, you might want to venture off the property…maybe. The club house to the nationally-rated Paako Ridge golf course is less than a 8-minute drive. Many say this 27-hole mountain course, designed by an award-winning architect, is the best in New Mexico. You can take flight in a sailplane out of Moriarty, staying up for hours in warm thermals rising off the desert in a high-performance glider.

Hike to the top of Sandia Crest, then drive back into history through the mining towns of Golden, Madrid, and Cerrillos, on your way to Santa Fe, only 45 minutes from the finest art, crafts, theater, music, museums and restaurants offered in the Southwest. Ride a hot air balloon over Albuquerque the next day.

Bandolier National Monument, site of ancestral pueblo and cliff dwellings, the Pecos Wilderness, and the famous Chaco Canyon are all day trips that usually start with a breakfast burrito. Welcome to New Mexico!

It's hard for me to believe, but I've done all the activities I've described above from my beautiful home when I'm not at work--and, now you can too. Casa de Vista is the perfect vacation home to rest, recreate, and explore the Land of Enchantment with family and friends. Only a 30-minute drive from the Albuquerque airport and to city amenities.

Hope to see you soon! Ted
