Perfect Christmas setting

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed your home in Santa Fe. The accommodations were perfect for our family, each area gave all family members space and privacy. The 35 acres gave us plenty of walking options and with the snow several snowball fights. The 360 degree views are amazing and your furnishings beautiful. I especially enjoyed the art work. Amanda and Fred were so kind to come and bring us another coffee pot, fire starters, and put dirt on the road after the snow. Thank you so much and we highly recommend your property!

Great stay in northern Santa Fe!!!

  • 5 of 5

Walter was wonderful. We stayed at his property on 35 acres. Perfect away from everything spot to work on our newest book as well as close enough to go into Santa Fe for an elegant dinner. Truly, the NM Southwest - with views of the mountains and desert from every window. Each night we looked forward to having a fire in the kiva type fireplace. As Italians, we use fresh produce at every meal...the kitchen had all the kitchenware we required to prepare our breakfast and lunch. The house and views are every bit as beautiful as the pictures ....and exactly what is required for writing and creative thought. Thank you Walter.. We will return. Giuseppe and Diana

Beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house and it was a wonderful stay. The bedrooms are great, the house is well maintained and the housekeeper, Amanda, is a sweetheart. She is very helpful and made our stay special. I would go back anytime.

Nice house with beautiful views but lacking

  • 3 of 5

We are a group of 8 women who travel together every year and have been doing so for almost 10 years. This is the first year where we stayed at a home where expectations were not met especially for the price paid. The house was nice on a beautiful property with lovely views and patios outside of Santa Fe; however, we had a lot of issues/problems. We met the manager, Amanda, who let us into the house on a very warm day and none of the windows were opened so it was stuffy and not very welcoming, as if we weren't expected. The house was also not very clean which the manager told us was because someone else had just left? So why the cleaning fee? We requested a DVD player and Amanda told us she would bring it the next morning by 9am. That time came and went so I texted her and she said she had forgotten and would bring it the next day. We had multiple cleaning issues: There were no hand towels in the bathrooms, the liquid hand soaps were either empty or just barely filled. We asked for more and got some partially filled ones two days later. Some of the bath towels/kitchen towels had a musty smell and there was no detergent to wash them. When we asked for detergent and dish washing soap (which there was also very little of), Amanda told us she did not provide "personal" hygiene products. There were multiple burned out or missing light bulbs and light switches that didn't turn anything on. Dirty linens were piled up by the washer/dryer. Refrigerator and oven were dirty. We started to have ants the second day. You get the idea.

We reported a broken toilet on the second day of our long weekend and Amanda came by with toilet paper and a plunger two days later. When she realized there would be more work involved she said she would return but never did.

We are surprised by the number of positive reviews of Amanda as she was less than helpful, and actually defensive and rude to our group.

This could be a great property with better upkeep, cleaning and a little TLC.

Spectacular views in a prefect location!

  • 5 of 5

I had never been to Santa Fe before and brought a group of 6 for a small yoga retreat. The location was perfect, 19 min to town and all the attractions. The house was beautiful and had plenty of space for all of us. High ceilings and lots of windows added to the feeling of being a part of our environment. The deck made a perfect location for our twice daily yoga classes and the other deck made a perfect location for cool breezes and playing mahjong. We loved it and were sad to leave. I cannot wait to come back to Santa Fe and expore again. Thank you

Can't Wait To Go Back!!

  • 5 of 5

My entire family and I decided to rent this home during May and we ended up having an amazing time! The home is pristine and the property is gorgeous. The views are so beautiful and the location is extremely convenient (something that was important to us as my brother and I are a bit OCD.) The property owner was so nice and Amanda tended to our every need. The drive into Sante Fe is quick and every route is a scenic route! We can't wait to go back next year! Thanks for the amazing vacation!
