About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4 in bedrooms)

This comfortable air-conditioned two bedroom condo is well located in Santa Fe. With easy access to highway 285 north, it is less than a 10-minute drive to the Santa Fe Opera. It is about 1 mile (an easy walk for those into walking) from the Plaza, the center of old Santa Fe. A drive of about 1 mile puts one on the road to the Santa Fe Ski Basin. The De Vargas Center with very good restaurants, grocery store, drugstore, excellent shops, post office, etc. is a few hundred yards from the condo.

The entrance door to the condo opens into a hallway with a small coat closet and a bedroom on each side of the hall. The hallway leads to the open living/dining area with beamed ceilings and a wood-burning kiva fireplace. Furnishings include an armoire with a television and VCR and a dining table that comfortably seats six people. Double french doors lead out of the living area onto a covered balcony where one can eat and relax while looking out on a mountain view.

The kitchen is open to the living area and has an electric stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, small microwave oven and the necessary assortment of pots, pans, dishes, utensils, coffee maker, toaster, etc. for preparing and eating meals.

The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and an adjacent half-bath. It is furnished with a queen-size bed, small TV, radio alarm clock and R.C. Gorman prints on the walls. The second bedroom has an ample closet, queen-size bed, radio alarm clock and Georgia O'Keeffe prints on the wall. Good quality bed and bath linens are furnished. The full bath has a tub with shower and a closet with a small, stacked WASHER & DRYER.

Located in a quiet neighborhood and shielded from mainstream traffic noise by another building in the condo complex, the condo is a peaceful place to stay. There is ample free parking in the complex parking lot. The condo is not wheel chair accessible since one must go up six steps to reach the entrance. It is a Non-Smoking condo and NO PETS, so a comfortable condo for those with allergies to pets.

About Glynn

I am a retired community college teacher and an opera lover. For many years prior to buying the condo, I spent a week in Santa Fe each summer attending performances of the Santa Fe Opera. Since purchasing the condo, I have continued to spend a week each summer at my home away from home in Santa Fe enjoying the opera (total now more than 25 summers of Santa Fe Opera performances) and have also enjoyed being in Santa Fe at other times of the year.

Glynn purchased this condo in 2002

Why Glynn chose Santa Fe

The condo is in a very convenient location--within walking distance of the Plaza (about a mile)-- and a quick drive to the Santa Fe Opera.

What makes this condo unique

Clean, well-maintained, quiet, very convenient, Laundry inside the condo itself, AC, and ample parking year round, View of Mountains from the balcony. One of the most convenient locations in Santa Fe for ease of access to all points in and around the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick note to thank you for the Santa Fe condo

rental! We found your condo quiet, comfortable,

tastefully furnished, and very well equipped, and

appreciated making it our home for the week. It was

perfect for us! We certainly hope to rent from you again.

Owner's Response: This review is difficult to understand fully, but it's also highly unusual for the condo to receive such a review (please read other reviews). It's true that the washer was broken; it broke right before this renter arrived. We bought a brand new top of the line Whirlpool Washer and Dryer and replaced the old ones as fast as the company could deliver them. I'm not sure why it was "too loud" to open windows; perhaps another vacation renter group nearby was noisy. We have many return guests and most remark on the quiet and calm surroundings in this condo complex. The condo has AC that works well and there's usually a breeze as soon as the sun goes down. We will look at the coffee pot to see what is going on there. We take all comments seriously and attend to them right away.

A magical part of our magical stay in Santa Fe!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is just as advertised! It was immaculate and all appliances, etc. were in working order during our stay. Be sure to enjoy the balcony for the fresh breezes and the view! (Never did find out what that brightly-colored "giant molecule" thingy was, but it made for a very good landmark when driving to and from the condo. Very convenient for all the places we wanted to visit. (When looking up directions to just about anywhere on our phones, the estimated driving time was usually just over 10 minutes.) Also very quiet. Just be aware that it's best to have access to a car in this location. Not sure it would be safe or advisable to try to walk to the popular tourist areas.

All the essentials--and in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Its proximity to Tesuque Village Market, the Opera, SF Plaza, Taos Hwy and to the 599 Relief Route are all pluses. Perfect for visitors with a car. Quite comfortable and clean. Everything you need.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in Santa Fe at Sally's condo and it was perfect. It is well located and beautifully decorated. Sally gave us good directions for getting there and for getting into the condo. The condo is supplied with paper products, soap and other things you might need while staying there. The only drawback was that the internet was a little slow, but still acceptable. I highly recommend this condo and would stay again if we went back to Santa Fe.!

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a ten day vacation in Santa Fe where we stayed in this clean and well-maintained condo. The owner was kind enough to provide paper products, soaps, and cleaning supplies for our stay. The WiFi connection was dependable and fast. We were very pleased with the location---close to the Plaza, good grocery stores, and the many Santa Fe attractions. The owner, Sally, sent us good driving directions to the condo and excellent recommendations for restaurants and things to do. She was very responsive and pleasant to work with. We have rented many vacation condos in the past----this was certainly one of the best.
