A great place to relax and escape the insanity of the noisy everyday world we live in yet close enough to all of that to be able get right back in the race again. Beautiful nature sounds day(great bird song) and night(coyotes singing you to sleep). Super comfortable beds and just all around amazing place to just hang out. Probably the best equipped and appointed living space we've ever stayed and we've stayed in many places. Pictures can't do this place justice which may be a cliche but once you experience this place, you'll see.
Best Vacation Rental I Have Ever Stayed In.
I cannot say enough positive things about Beverly and Phil's wonderful home. This was by far the most enjoyable VRBO/home rental experience I have ever had and we travel a lot and have rented a lot of places around the world.
1) The location is good. It is outside of Santa Fe by 20 minutes by car, so it is nice a quiet. (But maybe not for you if you want to eat out every night as you will have to drive home after, lol. We ate in 5 out of 7 nights we stayed as it was just so nice on the back patio, see below.)
2) The house is FULLY stocked with every possible amenity and extra you can think of. Spices, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, paper towel, dishes and glasses, towels, blankets, etc etc. etc etc. You know how most rentals have like 2 rolls of toilet paper, 1 roll of paper towels, and maybe some salt and pepper? Not here. You will want for nothing.
3) Beverly and Phil are super nice and will answer every question you can think of. Beverly especially was very attentive and quick to respond to any text.
4) The patio in the back is awesome. It has a comfy swing for two and set of table and four chairs for dining, a grill, and many bird feeders. We watched more hummingbirds than I have every seen in one place at one time. Sunsets on the patio with a glass of wine were perfect.
5) The BED was amazingly comfortable, we slept like rocks every night. A solid 8-9 hours ,which is just crazy for us.
6) We played tennis (two courts) every day. The courts are like brand new, pristine condition and only a 4 minute drive away.
You literally cannot go wrong staying here. I would come back in a heartbeat.
We loved this place so much, we stayed for 5 full months!
The perfect place to get away in Santa Fe! It’s secluded, yet only 20 minutes from downtown. Everything about the place says to simply relax and enjoy yourself while you watch nature every morning from the patio. We loved it so much during a week stay in December 2017 that we booked the place for 5 months in 2018. What an amazing time we had at this home. It’s fully furnished and we lacked nothing. The owners were amazing and always there when we had questions.
The Wide, Bright, Blue, Clear Skies of New Mexico
When I arrived, there was a gate I was not expecting but I reached Beverly by phone and she walked me through what to do. Then she graciously gave me a "virtual" walk through by phone explaining important info. She obviously cared about my comfort and getting familiar with my home for three weeks. Beverly was so unconcerned about my Great Pyrenees, a large dog. It was wonderful to have such a welcome for BOTH of us. The house was very clean upon arrival and once I had all of the shades open, the magic of New Mexico came streaming in the windows. I have previously lived in the area and have considered moving to Eldorado so I chose this location instead of prior Santa Fe vrbos. What is special about this home is the floor to ceiling windows that provide clear, full views of the open space, sky, and mountains. The patio is well-furnished and a lovely place to enjoy relaxing outside. No need to even walk outside for the spectacular sunsets or moon, and even stars could be seen inside! My dog and I walked every morning and afternoon by simply stepping off the patio and enjoying the trails in the open space. Eldorado also offers trails through 5,000 acres of a private, Eldorado preserve, so for hikers it doesn't get any easier and the house had a map plus other area info.
The home was very comfortable, supplied with everything I needed, a well-stocked kitchen, and a short drive to Santa Fe. It is a passive solar design and primary heat is the pellet wood stove. I had to call Beverly about the pellet stove since I was unfamiliar and could not find instructions. My only suggestion is to provide a book with instructions about items that we went over by phone. It only took a day or two to figure out what combination of shades, wood stove, or open door I needed for a comfortable temperature.
There is no real need to leave Eldorado since it has a grocery, post office, some shops, music venue and restaurants. Oasis Cafe has fantastic gyros and Cafe Fina is excellent for everything from coffee drinks, to baked goods, to breakfast and brunch meals. Wifi was good, as was Verizon cell service and I used the smart TV to rent a couple of movies through my VUDU account.
I appreciated Beverly checking with me a couple of days after I had time to settle in. She is very thoughtful and had some local beverages in the fridge to enjoy. I recommend this home for anyone seeking a pet-friendly, pleasant home with expansive views and a thoughtful, open-minded owner.
Absolutely the perfect getaway for our week in Santa Fe!
The home was warm, breathtaking, totally idyllic! A view from every room of the valley across to the Sandia Peaks 50+ miles away. The kitchen has been completely modernize while being delightfully decorated in a beautiful southwestern flair. We had planned on spending more time walking around Santa Fe, but once in the house, it became like our secret grotto. We actually spent more time just taking in the view and relaxing. What an awesome time we had! Definitely planning to return soon!!
Great Place to Relax!
This was a terrific house to spend the Thanksgiving Holiday with my wife, two young children, and our dog! It was so beautiful and comfy that we didn't do as much sightseeing in nearby Santa Fe as we thought we would. That said, it was an easy 20 minute drive into town. We loved the private feel and gorgeous views from the back deck. The sun sets behind the distant mountains like a painting, and area light restrictions made for incredible stargazing at night. The kitchen was well appointed and we were able to cook a traditional Thanksgiving meal no problem. The owner, Beverly heard we'd be cooking and bought a new roasting pan for the occasion! She was eager to answer questions and make sure we wanted for nothing during our stay. The kids loved the play structure out back and the individual single beds in their room. A trundle pulls out from below the main bed. The master bed was more comfortable than ours at home and a fireplace motif compliments every room in the house. I can't recommend this property enough, and I hope to return someday soon. Thanks for the hospitality!
