About the property

This comfortable 2 bedroom, 1 bath home is surrounded by gardens, rock walls and paths, and several monumental rock sculptures. The view of the Ortiz mountains from the living room and stone terrace is stunning, and the sunset views from the stone terrace are something to write home about. The living room boasts the largest shephard's fireplace ever, while also providing a wood-burning stove for contemporary warmth and atmosphere. The kitchen is fully furnished for cooking adventures, with dishes, cutlery, pots and pans, linens, pantry items, etc. Artwork, pottery and folkart are located throughout the casa, leading to interesting discoveries at every turn.

Peaceful, quirky, very New Mexico!

  • 5 of 5

We are two friends who stayed at the casa for one week in October. The house is located 20 minutes from center of Santa Fe. Location is excellent if you want some privacy and peace, while still having easy access to Santa Fe. It's at the top of a rough dirt road, which didn't present a problem to us because the weather was fine, but if there is ice or snow it could be a challenge. House is genuine adobe style with stone walls, log ceilings and stone floors throughout. The heating system works well and keeps the house warm, but bring your house slippers because the floors are kind of rough and cold. Lots of folk art & local crafts strewn throughout the house. Charming, but it's also a lot of stuff to that collects dust and cobwebs, so if you have allergies this might not be the place for you. Other than that, the house was very clean so no worries there. Rooms are very comfortable, view is gorgeous, and the grounds are incredibly interesting and fun to explore. Michael, the caretaker, was unbelievably responsive, generous and kind. He even brought us a wok when we said we needs a bigger pan! :-) Thank you!

Hidden Gem in the hills of Santa Fe

  • 4 of 5

This is a very eclectic artsy kind of place that was worthwhile renting, very cute, extremely private. It is situated on a very bad road that needs grading. Traveling it is a tough 6/10s of a mile and you should have an SUV. The area is deeply forested and has parking for only 2 cars.

Staying here you can forget about the rest of the world.

Fabulous casa

  • 5 of 5

We were pleased to have found such a wonderfully interesting homebase to relax and enjoy outside of Santa Fe. The grounds with many different and unique sitting areas were enjoyable to take in the scenery. The casa has everything needed which begged us to not venture out too much. We made a few trips to the Santa Fe square which is only a 15 minute drive. This may have to be a yearly vacation spot for us!!

Scenic and private

  • 5 of 5

The perfect honeymoon cabin. Scenic views, private. The cabin is fully furnished with amazing art, books and native treasures. Enjoyed deer roaming the grounds and a wonderful array of birds frequenting the area. We will return to this cabin again soon.
