Beautiful setting for a wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long weekend with family and totally enjoyed this spacious, well equipped house. Appreciated that our dog could come along with us. It was great grilling on the patio while sitting near the cozy outdoor fireplace (bought wood at the grocery store) and then eating in the spacious kitchen. Hosts graciously allow guests to use the pantry items so we didn’t have to bring spices, oil, etc. We loved the views of the Organ mountains and watched mule deer passing near the house. The hiking nearby is very nice. It’s about 25-30 minutes to drive into town but there’s great restaurants and shopping. We would definitely stay again!

There were only two of us, so we spent a few minutes playing Goldilocks in order to pick which bedroom and bathrooms to use. SO many choices. If you have a large family, this is your place! The family areas would still feel spacious with 8 people in them, I think. Our hosts were amazingly flexible with our unexpected late arrival, the house was immaculate (and stocked with enough food and coffee that we didn't have to hit a grocery store before breakfast the morning after arrival). Everything in the house is easy to find and easy to use from the jetted tub to the elliptical machine and Danese will answer questions really fast. Be prepared for a ton of little birds all over the garden and gorgeous desert views. Twinkling stars. Twinkling distant city lights. Zero noise. The hiking around the house does not disappoint, either. You can seriously get all the way over to Dripping Springs by trail if you're up for it. Spectacular. I'd give them 6 stars if I could (oh, and we used an obnoxious number of towels and there were still whole cabinets full of clean towels. You will seriously not run out of anything). For those of you unfamiliar with "the middle of nowhere" living, the last part of the road (for which you will initially have an escort and be thankful about) is unpaved but well maintained, just a head's up for anyone heading here in a particularly low-slung or delicate vehicle. 98% of cars would not have an issue, but you might not want to take your classic convertible Jaguar or your tiny hatchback with bald tires to this house ;)...

Enchanted Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home as a destination point for my family to gather and celebrate Christmas together and it did not disappoint! From the secluded, spectacular landscape and gorgeous views to the ease and elegance of the home, we all felt comfortable and created wonderful holiday memories together. The home is even better than advertised, and I hope to stay here again one day. I highly recommend this house for creating sanctuary and celebrating special occasions. Thank you, Danese, for your warmth and wonderful customer service and most especially for sharing your beautiful home with us!

The home was a perfect fit for our needs over New Years holiday. We had plenty of room for the family (9 adults and 1 child) to celebrate our father's 80th birthday. The owners of this lovely home were so helpful and easy to get in touch with. I will no doubt recommend this home to others and will most definitely consider using it once again in the future. My entire family loved the home and they especially loved cooking in the awesome kitchen which has fantastic views of the valley and city lights. Just a real great find!

Thank you very much for letting us have our little wedding at your lovely home! Everyone loved everything about the property. We even got really lucky and had an amazing sunset. Lots of loving memories and good vibes in that home.

Stunning Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this property for our son's wedding on a gorgeous October day. The actual wedding was there as well. It was absolutely breathtaking!

The house itself is comfortable, very clean, and well-appointed. The kitchen did not disappoint, and as we are a family of cooks (including a food blogger - me - and a professional chef - one of our other sons), this is an important consideration! I catered the wedding, and had many cooks in the kitchen at one time!

The owner was helpful and generous. We did not have any need to reach her during our stay.

Our only concerns were bees (2 tiny grandsons) that occasionally found us on the patio, and the master bedroom king-sized bed is so squishy (though high-quality) as to have been uncomfortable for both my husband and me. That really is a matter of personal preference though. We never had problems with hot water though we had up to 8 adults some of the nights.

Beautiful property, comfortable house, and great owner all contributed to a wonderful wedding week in New Mexico. We all agreed we would stay again!
