About Flora Leyba

Both my husband and I were born and raised here in New Mexico. We are in our mid 80's with 2 married children. We have 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. We love to travel and have been blessed to see many beautiful parts of the world. There is still no place lovelier than Santa Fe and we hope to share our love of Santa Fe and its surrounding area with our guests.

Flora Leyba purchased this house in 2011

Why Flora Leyba chose Santa Fe

Growing up in northern New Mexico we are accustomed to haciendas (several dwellings under one roof) where families lived near each other. The entire house is set up as four separate units under one roof. This is the largest main unit with three bedrooms and two baths.

What makes this house unique

The views from the property of all the mountains are superb! Spectacular sunrises over the Sangre de Cristo mountains to colorful sunsets over the Jemez Mountains. Just outside the city limits but close enough to drive to either the Santa Fe Plaza, Santa Fe Opera, Santa Fe Ski area and easy access to Albuquerque.

Just like home

  • 4 of 5

I felt as though we were staying in someones home and they had just left the day before.A very pleasant experience and very comfortable. Open the door and just start relaxing The location is rural, but surprisingly close to everything. It is very quiet and peaceful. My family enjoyed sitting on the deck for morning coffee and enjoying the peaceful area and watching the sunrise light up the mountains to the west. The kitchen is something else, large, fully stocked and a window to the west that is the width of the kitchen. The upstairs den and patio provide great views of the Santa Fe area and a separate area to get away from other activities in the home. This is a large unit and everyone can spread out . We enjoyed it immensely.

Owner's Response: Thank you Charles and family for staying at Hacienda de Leyba. We are so glad you all had a pleasant and very comfortable stay! That is what we strive for. Yes, the kitchen is very large and well stocked and the pictures don't do justice until you see it in person. So happy that you enjoyed both the deck and upstairs patio too. We hope you come back soon!

This home is a perfect location for exploring Santa Fe. It has all the features and furnishings you need for an extended stay, and a well-equipped kitchen. Very spacious and clean. Comfortable beds! Nice views of sunsets and rainbows from the back deck almost every evening. Access is easy to downtown, which is about 15 minutes away. It was also very quiet at night; very little highway traffic. Flora and her daughter Wanette are friendly, caring people who were always attentive to our needs. We've done a lot of VRBOs, and this property is at the top of the list.

The best place I had stayed. Everything was wonderful and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation with the family. The one thing I will always remember about this vacation is being able to meet the owner. She is just like anyone's mother. A great lady and a wonderful person to meet. We all went through life hoping that one day we could meet someone that has a special meaning to our life. That person would be the owner. It was not only a great place that I would like to return, but also the opportunity to meet a great person. Best wishes to her and her family.

Owner's Response: Scott, Thank you for such a kind review! It was also a pleasure meeting you and I know you all enjoyed your stay. So glad you had plenty of room and felt right at home - that is what we hope all our guests experience. I do hope you come back to visit Santa Fe again in the near future - we have four seasons to enjoy!

Comfortable and close to town

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in the home. It had a very large kitchen and eating area and a large family/gathering room. We enjoyed our stay very much. It was a short 5 minute drive to downtown Santa Fe and close to major roads so it was very easy to get around quickly. Just one small issue... there were a lot of knick knacks around the home that we had to move so we could put our luggage and supplies down, a little annoying but no big deal. We had a great time staying in this nice home.

The owner was extremely friendly and helpful. The property is a good location near the Plaza but still has a mountain view. It is roomy and well kept. The kitchen is large and lovely. I would highly recommend the property!
