About the property

Shared kitchen and living room. Private bath and bedroom.

This is a country house with a 2 room suite, and private bath on one end and owners quarters on the other. You get a bedroom that is intimate and cozy and a larger sitting room for spreading out after a long day of southwest travel. There are bee hives on the property with free tastings. The home features arched openings, hand plastered walls, and cozy brick floors throughout. The entire roof is from 1860's barn beams. We think of it as modern rustic. This is a guest room within a home but with it's own bath!

There's fantastic light, a big modern kitchen shared with the owner, as well as several places to pull up a chair along our outdoor porches. Enjoy the views with an early morning coffee, or a beer after returning from the Santa Fe city events. Hiking trails just out the door, privacy as well as hospitality in this 2,500 sq. ft. eco friendly home. It's super quiet and close in just a few minutes to town. No pets and please- fragrance free -thanks! No businesses please, this is for residential guest use.

About Kevin Van Slooten

Hi I'm Kevin and welcome to my place along the mesa here in sunny Santa Fe. Hope you enjoy your stay.

Kevin Van Slooten purchased this house in 2001

Why Kevin Van Slooten chose Santa Fe

This is a unique place to stay. There are dirt roads right out the door to walk or if your'e a bicyclist to ride on. We have willow and fruit trees around the property. We also keep bees! That's right, they can be viewed managing their hives right out your window across the yard. There is also plentiful ornamental grasses, and sage which sends up large purple branches full of flowers. I take pride in keeping up with the landscaping. There's also a Koi pond in the backyard and you can pull up a chair and spend quiet time there.

What makes this house unique

Quiet and on a lovely country road just off a main highway

Fragrance and smoke free

Queen bed.

Beautiful home in a peaceful setting just outside Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights in this gorgeous custom home and felt very welcomed by Kevin, the owner. Our bedroom and adjacent den gave us plenty of room to relax and read or do yoga. Kevin graciously provided space in the refrigerator and pantry so we were able to enjoy breakfast on the sunny patio, and and we were able to use the kitchen to have dinner at home after full days of sightseeing in town. The drive to town takes about 15 minutes and we enjoyed going different routes each day to see more of the varied Santa Fe neighborhoods, like the Railyard district for the Farmers’ Market, a must-see. We highly recommend staying at Kevin’s lovely home.

Edge of Santa Fe Beauty!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent three fantastic days (four nights) with Kevin. His home is located near the western edge of Santa Fe. In our case both Kevin and his home were "just the ticket". We could early enjoy historic Santa Fe with a short drive to, but also were able to enjoy the beauty of his home in its semi rural setting. His authentic SW architecture home which he built himself is on a very large lot, where one may sit outside at all times of the day and relax ... enjoying the local birds, or just looking out over the fields.

Kevin himself was a great host. Our two room suite was exactly as advertised, but in additiln we were allowed to use the living room, kitchen and outdoor patios. It was fun to share wine with Kevin and Jen one evening, and both couples prepared their own dinners. We hope to return!

Very comfortable, Santa Fe style guest quarters with delightful outdoor, mountain view patio

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with Kevin, our generous and engaging host. The house was clean and welcoming and we felt very much at home during our visit. The Adobe style house was lovely and remained cool and comfortable even in the high 90s during our visit. Although the location was a bit out of town, it was easy to get into the city and the peace and quiet was well worth the short drive.

Owner's Response: I was fortunate enough to have had a few special moments with my guests from Los Angeles. I really enjoyed meeting them and have fond memories of our late night" kitchen table talks". They are kind people and Im glad to have shared their vacation with them.

Great host and view!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a great time! We stayed 2 nights. Kevin was a great host he was ready with anything we might need at the house plus more! His house is beautiful and has a great patio and view out back. Very clean. The place is secluded and quiet yet still a very short drive to downtown. Kevin gave us very useful tips on where to eat and what to try out as we were there to explore and enjoy all Santa Fe has to offer.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a great space to call home in Santa Fe for a couple nights. The home is immaculate and beautifully furnished and the rental space is in it's own area of the house and includes a bedroom with a cute sitting area. The backyard patio is a gem and great for coffee in the morning and adult beverages in the evening. Kevin is very friendly and considerate of his guests.

Owner's Response: Having Anna and Ron here was very special for me. They are both thoughtful and considerate folks and I enjoyed a few rare warm outdoor evenings getting to know them. I had never hosted artists before and they were an inspiration to me. I wont forget the evening they were painting canvases while the sun was setting!

Lovely peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here for 4 nights, and really enjoyed our stay. It provides the peaceful retreat away from busy areas, with many hiking trail nearby. Great views from the property. In addition, many area attractions, restaurants, and downtown Santa Fe were very close driving distance. Kevin, the owner, went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and also gave many great suggestions on things to do in Santa Fe and the surrounding areas. We would definitely stay here again.
