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 studio 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 hacienda is set up with four separate units under one roof. This is the smaller studio apartment unit.

What makes this studio unique

The views from the property of all the surrounding 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.

Great stay with one tiny blip

  • 4 of 5

Lovely setting on the outskirts of Santa Fe. My wife and I were thoroughly delighted with the accommodations and with Flora, who owns and runs the hacienda and gave us a tour of the other units. We wanted to be as far away from the city as possible, so we chose this location. However, that's where the blip comes in. When we arrived, we saw that a retaining wall was being constructed right in front of our unit - bags of cement, piles of cinder block and such - and the next day, construction workers starting working on it. We didn't know this going in and didn't anticipate construction just outside the unit. It may have changed our decision as to renting that particular unit. Otherwise, no issues.

Owner's Response: It was indeed a pleasure to host Don & Rebecca, such a lovely happy couple. Check-in time is 3:00 pm; however, you unexpectedly arrived very early in the morning due to your long trip which was fine with me. I was able to also give them a tour of the other three units at the Hacienda complex and get better acquainted. While we walked through the property, there was never any mention to me of any issues with the retaining wall construction. My daughter emailed you a couple of times during your stay to inquire how things were or if anything was needed and again, you indicated everything was fine. Had you mentioned at any time any issues with the retaining wall construction, I would have immediately resolved it by either moving you to another unit or giving you a discount. We want to ensure the serenity and comfort of our guests during their stay at Hacienda de Leyba and we certainly hope you will return in the future.

Peaceful Spot

  • 5 of 5

On morning I saw quail walking outside my front door. It was quiet and peaceful, and yet so easy to get to the center part of town. Great kitchen which I used extensively as I am on a special diet. All sort of dishes and pots and pans available for use. Bed is comfy, and the digs are comfy, too.

Perfect stay for Santa Fe Explorers

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay at Hacienda Leyba in the Sandoval Studio. Our hosts were kind, helpful and informative. They checked in with us regularly throughout our 4 night stay and were quick to answer any questions about our studio, Santa Fe and local New Mexican culture. We loved being on the edge of town with an amazing sunset view, quiet nights and the fresh mountain air. The studio itself was perfect for the two of us with a full kitchen, lots of natural light and a patio to enjoy Santa Fe evenings. We also loved the experience of staying in a Hacienda, a first for us. Thank you for making our first trip to New Mexico a so comfortable, welcoming and beautiful.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The Studio was just perfect for the two of us. We liked being out of the hustle of town - nice and quiet with great view especially at sunset. Loved sitting on patio with a book enjoying the outdoors and that view. It is still close enough to town(about 5 minutes). Flora welcomed us and showed us around and even called us once while we were there to make sure we had everything we needed. Everything was really clean and neat with Flora's added homey touches and lots of light from the big windows.

The studio was quite spacious and even though the bathroom was a little small it was just fine with places to put all our toiletries. Plenty of water pressure and towels were so fluffy.

It had a big closet to put all our extra things (suitcases, cooler and bins we brought food in) as well as lots of clothes space. Kitchen was well equipped with all we needed. We ate in 3 out of the 5 nights and several lunches since we were so close to town. We will definitely consider staying here again when we can get back to Santa Fe. Thanks again Flora.
