View the beautiful video of our home on youtube, searching by the address: Placita del Este

Location: Conveniently located just off of Hyde Park Road with a private gated driveway less than 1.5 miles from the Plaza, this three bedroom, three and a half bathroom home is tastefully furnished with carefully collected art and antiques. There is an inspiring scenic walk to the nearby Ft. Marcy park and then on to the plaza in just 10-15 minutes (or just hop in your car and be there in 5 minutes).

Bedrooms: Each of the three ample sized bedrooms has its own en suite bathroom and private entrance to a covered outdoor portal. Each bedroom also has picturesque views of the Jimez mountains as well as the spectacular New Mexican sunsets. The beds are of premium quality with two king size and two twin beds, each furnished with ironed 1200 count cotton sheets & custom made linens. Each bedroom suite is complete with seating and writing tables, as well as flat screen TVs and DVD players.

Kitchen: The large elaborately furnished gourmet kitchen adjoins the living area, perfect for relaxing and entertaining, with service for up to 60 people. There is virtually every imaginable appliance and serving dish and stemware that we utilize with our entertaining.

Living: Bright and cheery, there is light radiating from all four window directions in the living room and kitchen, as well as from skylights above. The venetian plaster walls boast important art collections handed down through our family. There are grand 12 foot tall ceilings with beautiful wooden vigas and stately 8 foot tall doors. There is a generous full length covered portal along the living room and back of the house with large full view windows overlooking a natural valley, with the Jimez mountains and sunsets as backdrops. Warm up to the adobe corner gas fireplace, which is instantly turned on with the flip of a switch.

This outstanding adobe home has approximately 2,400 net square feet of luxurious living space for your vacation enjoyment. There is weekly maid service throughout the year to maintain the property to the highest of standards.

Make your next vacation one to remember for a lifetime!!

About John Hogg

As a 5th generation Texan, we furnished the home with many family western antiques and collected art to mix with the Santa Fe atmosphere. Although a physician in Austin, TX, we love to escape to the beautiful mountains vistas at our home in Santa Fe.

John Hogg purchased this house in 2008

We can't say enough!!! Can't wait to return!!!

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, we can't sing enough praises for this property and its owner! FABULOUS is the word to describe every aspect of our girls’ birthday celebration trip! Our host welcomed us with an amazing gift basket and wine, we enjoyed amazing views of the sunset every evening, and we had easy access to and around town via Uber. Santa Fe is a wonderful little town, trapped in a time warp with its adobe style buildings and cathedrals; hosting adorable, authentic shops, and out-of-this-world restaurants! We hiked to town one day from the property all of the way to the Rail Yard and back to the square. But the best part of the trip was the host and his beautiful home. John was attentive to all of our needs and wants - and made us feel like we were well taken care of to the max! He offered great suggestions for restaurants and sites, and his home was well-appointed with all of the luxuries one could ever want - including great art, decor, and design. Plus, John's personal attention to detail was outstanding and very much appreciated. We can't wait to go back!!!

PS Commenting on the previous review: yes, the radiant floor heating can be tricky. We have this in our home in Colorado – once you turn it up, it takes a long time to turn down. John said this explicitly in his instructions. Advice: if you don’t need it, don’t use it. If you need it, turn it up one degree at a time.

One more tip: The GPS for the Uber drivers took us to Camino del Este, not Placita del Este. It can be confusing as the gate codes are the same! Placita del Este is one street closer to town than Camino, fyi.

Gorgeous, open concept home with large gourmet kitchen and majestic view of the Jemez Mountains.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home for our family trip to Santa Fe ... Santa Fe style and spirit, beautifully appointed. It was a joy cooking in the large kitchen and sitting on the back balcony enjoying the sunset. The owners, John & David, are as fantastic as everyone states in other reviews - very warm & welcoming. The home is close to the Plaza but just enough removed to suggest privacy & a comfortable remoteness about it. Did I mention the gorgeous view of the Jemez Mountains? Thank you John & David for sharing your lovely home with us. Can't wait to return! The Schwartz Family.

Incredibly Fabulous House!!!

  • 5 of 5

Incredible place!!! Our second visit and hope to make it an annual event. BEAUTIFUL Home which feels more like a retreat with stunning views of the mountains and skyline. The deck is the BEST - has table for outdoor dining or just sitting and taking in the glorious view. Owner has impeccible taste; it is immaculate and equipped with everything. Very private setting. Owner is fabulous. GREAT location - 2 minutes to town in gated neighborhood. You'd be hard pressed to find a more awesome rental!!!

Wonderful home with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay! The home was comfortable, beautiful and had amazing views. John went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed! We would definitely stay here again. It's close enough to the plaza to walk, but you feel like you're out in the country in a quiet, private setting. The huge kitchen was well stocked with everything needed. Comfy bathrobes were in the closets. John thought of everything to make sure his guests enjoy their stay! Highly recommended!!!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This property is outstanding! Perfect accommodations for our three adult couples. Beautiful home in a beautiful setting only a short drive (or easy 20 to 30 minute walk) to historic downtown plaza district. Owner was very accessible and responsive to the few (minor) issues that arose during our stay. He also provided a helpful and comprehensive list of restaurants and activities to enjoy during our stay. I highly recommend this property, and would not bother to even look for other properties if I decide to return to Santa Fe. Except for an awesome oceanfront property on Hawaii's Big Island, this was my all-time favorite VRBO property.
