vacation rental description

Rass Mandal is a unique adobe vacation residence situated on a mountain range of pine forests with spectacular views.  Entering brings you to another time and presents a serene and inspiring atmosphere for all.  The house and grounds of more than 10 acres offer abundant locations for quiet time.  There are numerous hiking & mountain bike trails immediately accessible, some of which take you directly to the center of Santa Fe.

Rass Mandal was featured on HGTV's House Hunter's on Vacation with initial airing on June 22nd 2012.

I put up a short clip of the show on YouTube which you can find by searching on Rass Mandal with your search engine.

Additionally, you may enjoy visiting the Rass Mandal website for more pictures.  Again, you can find my website by searching on Rass Mandal with your search engine.  We are not permitted to put website addresses in our listings.

Upon entering the home you encounter a large domed circular living room complete with a fireplace, eastern antique furniture and beautiful views looking out to a pool.  This space is ideal for group sessions, gatherings and entertainment.  Off to the left of the living room is the dining room and kitchen area.  The dining table has room to accommodate 12 and is a great area for entertaining and formal meals.  The kitchen is open plan and has a Moroccan style fireplace and a very comfortable breakfast nook ideal for bird watching.  Behind the kitchen is a queen size bedroom and a bathroom, secluded from the rest of the house with its own private entrance.

To the right of the living room are guest quarters, each room offers views overlooking the grounds and the entire Santa Fe valley.  The master bedroom is complete with a fireplace, a large meditation/work area, beautiful bathroom and sunken Jacuzzi with views.  Additionally, there is a 2nd story observation deck that provides expansive views over all of Santa Fe, the Jemez Mountains and beyond.  The house is not air conditioned but given the cool evenings it is not actually necessary.  Fans are provided should they be desired.

Heading outside, there is a large private pool with waterfall, hot tub and sauna.  The pool is heated during the summer months (June 1st - September 30th) - however it is 35,000 gallons and heating is not feasible during the other times.  Generally the pool water temperature will be maintained at 78 F in July and August but ranges about 74 F - 76 F for June and September.  The hot tub is kept at 104 F.  All this is surrounded by a deck and patio ideal for outdoor dining and relaxation.  There is also a gas-fired Fire Pit for enjoyment during the cool evenings.

Hi, my name is Richard Woodruff and I am an American born in Jersey City, NJ and now living in Santa Fe after having spent the last 28 years living in Europe. You can find me on LinkedIn and on Facebook.  We will meet at the house when I give you the tour upon your arrival.

Rass Mandal is simply fabulous, providing a truly unique experience in Santa Fe. It's incredible architecture, shapes, and spaces transport one to ancient India yet with all the modern conveniences in an amazingly beautiful location high in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains above the City with spectacular views. While only minutes to the historic Plaza, all the downtown cultural amenities and many fine restaurants, Rass Mandal is a quiet and peaceful retreat not to be missed.  I encourage you to read the reviews from our previous guests.

Beautiful, tranquil, a real oasis!

Review submitted: April 10, 2014   Date of arrival: April 3, 2014

It was like walking into a little baby mountain taj mahal! Very palacial yet cozy. So many beautifully appointed nooks and crannies. It is like going on vacation within a vacation. From an artists point of view, very inspiring.
Would return for sure!

A place of beauty, serenity, and magic.

Review submitted: March 30, 2014   Date of arrival: November 28, 2013

My first impression of the Rass Mandal was one of breathtaking beauty. As we came up the road, the beautiful blue domes came into view with a gorgeous high desert vista for the backdrop. Upon arrival, the owner (Richard) greeted my girlfriend and I and gave us a tour of the property. The grounds are well maintained, and I could perceive the deep level of care Richard had put into decorating the Rass Mandal. Each room has a fabulous feel to it, and the architecture of the building is truly unique. The enormous curved hallway, which is lit up by ethereal blue lights in the evening, provides an almost otherworldly ambiance. My girlfriend and I spent Thanksgiving here with a small group of family and friends. Everyone commented on the deep sense of peace that seems to emanate from the Rass Mandal and permeate into you during your stay. There is a great soaking tub and two-person sauna. Since it was winter, we didn't get a chance to get in the pool or take advantage of the spacious yoga pavilion, but that just means we will have to come back this summer! This is an immensely romantic location. When I was there, it felt like we were in a different time, on a different world. I left the Rass Mandal with a deep sense of serenity and a feeling of rejuvenation. I would recommend it to any of my friends or family. Richard was so welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. I could tell that he loves what he does and puts his whole heart into the effort to create the magical atmosphere that envelopes the Rass Mandal. Truly a memorable moment in my life. I look forward to visiting again in the near future.

Beyond idyllic sanctuary

Review submitted: March 25, 2014   Date of arrival: March 20, 2014

I've traveled the world and never felt so invited and loved. The home is stunning - the architecture, views, pool, huge yoga studio... but the loving touches, are what captivates. The home truly is meant to be a sanctuary that invites the soul. There are personal touches everywhere that have meaning and inspiration. Tons of deities and goddesses and buddhas and mandalas and flowers and candles and lighting. The design spans Moroccan and egyptian to indian and east asian. Just stunning.

We were there for a women's retreat and it was absolutely perfect.

Richard, the owner is the loveliest and Leslie and Scarlett put such love and care into our organic meals and accomodated everyone's dietary desires... and it was oh so good.

I want everyone I know to experience themselves here. It is magical.
