About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8, Infinity Pool, 15 acres... a true retreat.

Rancho Rosado is a truly private retreat at the end of a dirt road, yet just minutes from the Santa Fe Opera--heading towards The Four Seasons. Enjoy your own private pool, a 3-bedroom house and a 1-bedroom guesthouse (both houses included in rental). All on a beautifully landscaped property with amazing sunset views.

• Master bedroom- California King Bed with en-suite bath

• Guest room 1- Queen Bed

• Guest room 2- Full Bed

• Separate Guest house- King Bed with en-suite bath

All bedrooms have remote air-conditioning and heating systems.

Large open living, dining, kitchen and sun-room that's great for entertaining. Hike in three different directions out the back door, including up into the Santa Fe National Forest. There are flat-screen TVs in the main house (51') and the guest-house (35') with DirecTV satellite top-of-the-line "Premier" package. Includes 285 channels with all the premium movie channels: HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Starz and more. Over 35 sports networks.

This is a dedicated vacation rental that was new on the market in 2014.

Tesuque is arguably the most sought-after part of Santa Fe. Just north of town, it's quiet, yet close to everything. Tesuque is one of the greener parts of Santa Fe with cottonwoods lining the Tesuque River. It's an amazing place to experience the nature of the high-desert.

Guests have total privacy at this property. Our friend and property manager, Mark will meet guests at the property to let them in and show them around. Mark is also an Australian trained butler who can provide extra service (additional fees), including:

• Arranging airport pickup / drop off

About Christopher Turner

I'm photographer who does landscapes and portraits and my husband is a a writer best known for a series of novels called 'Tales of the City'. We live in San Francisco, but use this house as our mountain retreat.

Christopher Turner purchased this house in 2012

Why Christopher Turner chose New Mexico

We fell in love with Tesuque the first time we came to Santa Fe. We found this place and not only did we love the house, but the land was more magical than anything we had looked at in Santa Fe. There are two arroyos on the property as well as cliffs up behind the house that are called the Tesuque Table. The view up in the mountains is amazing, and sunsets are stunning. The pool is our favorite feature of the house... especially in the summer. On almost any summer afternoon when we're in Santa Fe you'll find us enjoying the pool.

What makes this house unique

The large open living space is great for entertaining. The pool is a huge joy. The casita (guest house) makes a very private getaway if more than one couple is staying on the ranch.

Perfect setting, location and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We just rented this beautiful property for the third time. Each stay has been wonderful. We brought our adult children and our dog and everyone loved it. Mark is always informative, responsive and a wonderful 'host'. He even came to check on the dog when we spent the day rafting! We highly recommend this property without hesitation

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Rancho Rosado is outstanding: the house, the infinity pool, the casita, and the magnificent views. Our family of eight had a wonderful stay at the Rancho. It's a perfect spot from which to enjoy all the great things Santa Fe has to offer. Mark Johnson, the property manager was very helpful in getting us off to a great start. Thanks to all for a great experience!

Transported to another land

  • 5 of 5

Driving up to the property feels like slipping into a different world. The mountainous terrain surrounds the property making it feel like you are on you own private mountain even though there are other houses hidden over the ridge and the square is about 10-15 minutes away. Due to some cooler weather the pool was cold but the weather was perfect for walking and shopping. We had a great time In a truly picturesque spot.
