About the property

San Juan: Extreme Value! Paradise, Privacy yet still close to the center of Santa Fe.

Hooray! We finally have fast internet and great water pressure!

You could pay more for the Four Seasons across the street, but why not save more than half and stay where you'll have more privacy, larger accommodations with a better view!

Luxurious Artistic Home providing peaceful, beautiful surroundings for the traveler who appreciates getting away from the crowds to enjoy nature in tasteful and comfortable furnishings.

San Juan is for the discriminating traveler who enjoys the quiet and serenity of privacy while still being close to fine dining and cultural activities.

Our luxurious adobe vacation home, “San Juan”, is located in the exclusive and private community of Pueblo Encantado in Tesuque, New Mexico just minutes from the center of Santa Fe. “San Juan” sits on the most prime location of this prestigious community offering the best 180 degree unobstructed sunset views of the peaceful and serene Jemez Mountains. Nestled in the hills of the Sangre de Cristo and Jemez Mountain ranges adjacent to Tesuque Indian Tribal land, this traditional adobe home is away from all the others and connected to only one other unit insuring the greatest privacy. This beautiful home is decorated in the unique Santa Fe style, featuring the owner’s private collection of New Mexican photography. “San Juan” comfortably sleeps four in the two well-appointed bedrooms including luxurious 400 count sheets and can accommodate up to four. We prefer to rent to mature adults only and children over the age of 13 yrs old. We love 4-leggeds, just not in our home, please. After updating the bathrooms recently we had some issues with the water pressure but it is now fixed! I can wash my long hair comfortably now - yes!

Staying in Tesuque makes your visit to Santa Fe memorable and unique because you can enjoy both privacy and accessibility. You have the option of feeling totally isolated, surrounded by the stillness and beauty of the New Mexican sky, while at the same time being close enough to enjoy a variety of activities.

In less than five minutes you can experience the fine culture of the famous Santa Fe Opera or hunt for unexpected treasures, jewelry and antiques at the weekend Tesuque Flea Market. Only 15 minutes from the colorful Santa Fe Plaza, you can buy handmade jewelry directly from Native American Artisans or you can shop and dine in world-renowned galleries and restaurants to return to the privacy and serenity of “San Juan” for the stunning sunset views. Or if you choose, relax at home enjoying our tranquil pool and surroundings or just walk across the road for pampering spa treatments and 5 star dining at the Auberge Encantado Resort and Spa. There’s also the renowned El Nido Restaurant, a favorite for the opera crowd. For more casual fare, join the locals in outdoor dining at the vibrant Tesuque Village Market.

Day trips abound and our location makes them quite doable because of the easy access to I-25 and Hwy 599. For suggestion, visit Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu to see where Georgia O’Keefe painted for over 50 years. Take the exquisite scenic drive to Taos and visit the traditional Taos Pueblo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has been continuously inhabited for 1000 years. Stop at the chapel, “El Santurario” in El Chimayo along the way, famous for it’s miracles. The sports enthusiast has many options with snow skiing at near by Santa Fe Ski Basin in winter, and river rafting, hiking, hot air ballooning and horseback riding in the fall, spring and summer. No matter how you choose to spend your time, our very special paradise, “San Juan,” lets you experience it all!

Still wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting this lovely home away from home and we enjoyed it just as much as first time. The smell of the desert plants combined with the garden's lavender greeted us as we made our way to the front door. Beautiful place.

Perfectly and accurately described and shown in the photos. Very comfortable and a wonderful sense of being away from it all while close to Santa Fe.

Peaceful and yet not too far from the city

This is a great place to get away into nature without having to be too far from the city. It was wonderful to see the stars at night. We loved it!!

Beautiful condo with major problems

  • 2 of 5

This is a beautiful condo with very attractive furniture, rooms, and art work. There were, however, 2 big problems:

One of the 2 TV's was broken and not connected to the satellite or anything else. The other TV was a Roku with no regular programming, just access to multiple streaming channels. We were unable to keep up with the rapidly-changing political developments or see a favorite baseball game or any other scheduled program, all of which we like to do while on vacation.

The other problem was that the entire condo was kept very dark. We like to read in bed, but the bedside lamps had only 40 and 60 watt bulbs, making reading impossible until we purchased some 150 watt bulbs. We didn't attempt to up-watt any of the other 40 watt bulbs, and the entire condo remained quite dark at night.

Owner's Response: Hi Richard and Joan, I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy your stay! Next time, please let me know asap as I could've easily remedied the lighting situation for you! As to the TVs, we only list the Roku TV - the one in the bedroom closet we don't list as we don't have it connected. The Roku can be frustrating which is why we list it on the amenities and leave explicit instructions but I am aware the internet can slow it down. We are updating to a much faster internet (it's finally available in our area!) in October 2017 which should make it much easier to navigate. Thank you for your feedback and all the best to you both, Leslie

Weekend family retreat

  • 4 of 5

The location was perfect as we wanted to be near nature, but not far from civilization. Santa Fe was very accessible as was the Towa golf course. My family of four had plenty of room to spread out. My only complaint was about the shower pressure. The home owner was working to correct this problem the day we left, so hopefully it will be remedied.

About The Owner

I am an artist who has enjoyed coming to Pueblo Encantado for nearly 20 years. I love being so close to town, yet only minutes away I can be in the quiet and solitude of nature to refill and renew my soul.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2000

Why The Owner chose Santa Fe

I have returned again and again to this quaint little village for quiet respite. The traditional adobe architecture of Pueblo Encantado with free standing condos make it an idyllic vacation spot to enjoy what I like best: swimming, hiking, skiing and relaxing in nearby spas.

What makes this condo unique

I love hearing the distant coyotes howl at night, gazing at the stars, enjoying a fire from the two indoor kivas. Visiting the flea market just a few miles down the road is a must for me when I am there!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know how wonderful we thought your condo was. We enjoyed our stay immensely and hope to return next year!
