Beautiful view Lousy - inexcusable accommodations

  • 1 of 5

I stayed at the guesthouse for a month. I was initially taken with the view but as the month wore on, I became very dissatisfied with the accommodations- definitely sub-standard. Owner sells the view and expects you to be blind to the garage sale quality accommodations. Nothing Santa Fe style: Outdoors plants in original black pots from nursery, plastic chair. Indoor furniture all battered,cheap- massive stains on couch, paint chipping, non-existent side tables, pleather table, no lighting in LR except for 2 small wall sconces. I kept a sleeping bag thrown over the smelly couch. There isn't a full kitchen-no oven, dishwasher, a cheap faucet causes water to go everywhere, under-cupboard fridge freezes food at the back, but 2 crockpots, coffee maker, a chipped enamel pot and cast-iron pan. No windows or fan in bathroom - yes, definitely appears to have mold - which I could smell when I first walked in so I turned on baseboard heater to dry out air in bathroom during the summer! A porous brick floor in Bathroom and Kitchen allows water penetration! (Accidentally spilled a pot of water and the water disappeared under the bricks before I could find a towel!)Shower head sprays floor - inevitably. Cheapest little Home Depot sink they could find. Had to keep all windows and doors open ALL the time to reduce mold smell. Actually many places water could penetrate the house - it has seen upkeep in years! I took pics to demonstrate but can't upload them here. I told owners I am chemically sensitive and they did not tell caretakers - so sheets had been dry cleaned and scented garbage bags caused a rash - until I aired everything out and got rid of scented bags. Feel very ripped off with the price -especially given other beautiful accommodations in Santa Fe. Booked this for the view and availability. Don't recommend for anyone given the price and the mold!!! In fact, I don't think it is legal to rent out properties that have mold!

Owner's Response: This guest reserved our guest house for Aug 1-30, via VRBO site that has a full compliment of photos and write up representing property. She contacted us on the 25 day of her 30 day stay. We first interpreted her request as a health concern and offered her a refund of the remaining 5 days of her stay, which she refused. Our guest house does not harbor mold as we have had it tested in the past and offered to have it retested immediately, which she refused. Our guest house remains mold free per current testing. Our guest house at wilderness compound has been and remains an AWESOME place to kick back and breathe- relax, refresh and enjoy. Best to all Dawn & Georgia

Mountain Hideaway

  • 4 of 5

This was an excellent private guesthouse with great mountain views. The house was a short drive or bike ride into town and right across the street from Ten Thousand Waves spa. Very close to the hiking and biking areas around Hyde Memorial Park, Santa Fe Ski area, and Dale Ball/Atalaya Mtn trails. I would definitely recommend to friends/family and will stay there on future trips to Santa Fe.
