vacation rental description

Our vacation property is a wonderful adobe-style home located on 12 private acres just south of Santa Fe. For those who want to enjoy both "the city different" and the wonderful high desert countryside, this home is ideal. Just off of the Turquoise Trail, a Scenic Byway, the property is close to Galisteo, Cerrillos and the old mining town of Madrid. Just 4 miles away, on the road to town, one can enjoy the best Suthwestern breakfasts and lunches at the San Marcos Cafe while watching hens, turkeys and peacocks roam the property. 

Our casita is cozy and carefully designed in the traditional local adobe style with hand-plastered interior walls, beautiful viga ceilings, and a wonderful kiva fireplace. With amazing sunset views of the surrounding Cerillos Hills, the casita is nestled into the landscape with 360 degrees of complete privacy.

The land is completely natural containing two large sand-lined arroyos (dry creek beds). Tranquility, fresh air, unforgetable sunsets and clear starry nights are everyday treats, and the sound of cayotes howling in the distance make this a precious and unique place. 

Climate: cold (20°-40°F) in winter, and as warm as 80°-100°F in summer, but it cools down at night and often there are short thunderstorms in the late afternoon in July and August. The air is very dry and the altitude is approximately 7,000 ft. Spring and fall are ideal seasons to visit.

Access: fly into Albuquerque International Airport and rent a car; drive north on highway 25. Or fly into Santa Fe County Municipal Airport. Amtrak stops in nearby Lamy.

house rental amenities

The Casita sleeps two in the queen bedroom, one in the single bedroom, and two on the double futon in the living room. A picnic table, hammock and lounge chair are outside on the slate patio. A stone fireplace is available for outdoor barbeques, and a pile of firewood can be used outdoors or indoors in the traditional fireplace. A large bathroom has a shower, and a washer/dryer. The kitchen has all appliances. Linens, towels, extra blankets, etc. are available. We have a radio/CD player, a telephone (but no Internet) and only a few TV channels on a small TV. Games, puzzles, books and kids' toys are in the small bedroom. Portable air conditioner and area fans available. Internet access in town.

activities and attractions in Santa Fe New Mexico

In 20 minutes you can be in downtown Santa Fe. Bandolier and Petroglyph National Monuments, the Santa Fe Opera, and the Pecos, Sangre de Christo, Sandia and Jemez mountains are all nearby. The mountains offer hiking and fishing in summer, and skiing in winter (Ski Santa Fe in the Sangre de Christos; also ski the Sandia Mountains in Albuquerque). Art fairs and the famous Zozobra Festival take place all summer in town. Albuquerque is an hour to the southwest. The longest tram in the world climbs up the Sandia Mountains, which lie east of Albuquerque.

Christmas is very nice, the town is decorated with lots of candelarias. A special thing to do is visit a nearby Pueblo when they are having a feast or celebration day. There will be dancing, arts, food and other traditional Native American culture to be enjoyed.
