About This Listing
Our spacious and fun vacation home is the perfect Santa Fe get away for families and groups! Enjoy a large kitchen, ping pong table and balconies on all side with amazing views!
Our 3,300 sq. ft. vacation home is located on the west side of beautiful Santa Fe, with easy access to freeways. A very convenient location makes it a short drive to the historic downtown Plaza area, famous Canyon Rd, the Santa Fe Opera, shopping, movie theaters, rock climbing, mountain biking and fantastic hiking in the beautiful Sangre de Cristo mountains. The house is situated on 5 acres of beautiful high desert landscape including lots of pinon and juniper trees. The home was custom built in 1980 by my family and recently renovated. The home features three large bedrooms with a nursery area (crib, swing and nursing area) attached to the master. A fully stocked kitchen with double oven, dishwasher, microwave, adjacent to a dining area with a large table (seating up to nine) and large picture window facing the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, makes it perfect for enjoying meals with family and friends. Between three large bedrooms and a finished basement that serves as a fourth bedroom, the house will accommodate between 8-14 people on 3 queen size beds, 1 full, bunk bed (2 twins), full size futon, and crib. In the basement, relax in front of the kiva fireplace, or enjoy a game of ping pong. The first and second floors boast 3 balconies that provide a beautiful view of the mountains on one side and breathtaking sunsets on the other. After a long day of shopping or hiking, enjoy conversation lounging on the large deck just outside the living room or gaze up at the stars while sitting in your own private hot tub. Want to catch your favorite TV show, watch a movie, or surf the web? No problem, we have three TV’s, DVD players, a VHS player, lots of movies and free WiFi internet access. Full size washer and dryer if you need them. This is the perfect home for a family or larger groups. Tell us what you need and we will do our best to accommodate you! We are very knowledgeable about Santa Fe and local attractions!
Guests have access to an indoor jacuzzi tub, fully stocked kitchen, ping pong table, Satellite TV and WiFi.

This house was really great for our family vacation! It's spacious, the kitchen is stocked with everything you need, and we loved the ping pong table, hot tub, and board games. The house is a bit further away from the city center than I was anticipating, but we had great mountain views.
What a fantastic home and location for a group! We were a wedding party of 6 and were able to both spend time together in spacious common areas and have time separately in our own bedrooms, each with a private patio or balcony. Quick 10 minute ride into the heart of Santa Fe made getting around a breeze. Had everything we needed in a well stocked kitchen. Arrival and departure was easy as lots of directions are provided and are easy to understand. We never saw Jason or Christal, but they were readily available when we needed to talk to them by phone.
We stayed four nights over the Christmas holiday and really enjoyed the house. The host even put up a Christmas tree! The kitchen is well stocked to make our holiday meal and even had a nice collection of spices. The beds were very comfortable with plenty of linens/towels. I would only advise that the stairs to the large bedroom upstairs which has 2 of the queen beds and shared bathroom are steep and have short steps (I wear a ladies size 8 shoe and the steps were smaller than my foot) which prevented my sister who has neuropathy (numbness in feet) to stay in the large upstairs room with her sons. We just changed the sleeping assignments and I bunked with my nephews in the double shared queen room and gave my sister and her husband the downstairs bedroom with the Kiva fireplace (cannot use the Kiva fireplace in the bedroom nor the Kiva Fireplace in basement). It would have been nice to know this in advance but besides that we really enjoyed the house and would stay there again! It is on a beautiful serene quiet property about 10 minutes from the historic downtown area but only 5-7 minutes to Cerrillos Road where there are plenty of shops/grocery stores/restaurants. The house has wonderful stained glass windows, nice balconies, and a pretty back deck area where the hot tub is located. They have a good selection of movies to watch, satellite TV, and wifi which all worked with no problems. The living room fireplace was wonderful and cozy! It is a very comfortable house and I would highly recommend it. The 4 person hot tub was great after a day of skiing and we used it several times. The ping pong table was a lot of fun! Luckily, I brought my own ping pong balls and left them at the house for the next guests since the only there was smashed so you may want to bring your own. Overall, this is a very very comfortable house with lots of space! Thanks to the hosts for a wonderful stay!
The house is conveniently away from any major roads, yet within 10 or so minutes of downtown Santa Fe. Since the house was not booked the day after we were leaving, the hosts allowed us to check out later than we originally agreed to. The communication was always efficient and precise. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Jason and Christal were quick to respond to questions in advance of my family's stay. The house was as described in both amenities and location. It was a great fit for our seven adults and one child. We really enjoyed that it was just far enough outside of downtown Santa Fe for privacy but close enough for quick trips. Our family also loved the ping pong table, the piano, and the grill.
I never met Jason and Christal during my stay--he was out of state at a workshop. What a pity! From our emails to and fro, I sensed that this was a host I'd like to meet. He was always thoughtful and thinking ahead about my needs, making stuff comfortable for me and my two senior, 70+, friends. The house worked beautifully, and I now wonder why I didn't invite another five or so friends of mine along----Jason's house easily (and well) accommodates more than my party of three---sultans us three there.
One glitch: the WIFI was inoperable during my stay (tech junk always happens), but Jason aimed to work on it, and gracefully apologized for its absence, and that's a plus in his court.
I live in Colorado, my two East Coast friends---let me say that they are accommodation-demanding when they travel---were not nit-picky as they East Coast often are. They applauded my choice---a high-five for both me and Jason...'Nough said....Richard (Kelly)
PS. A map of the local area will be helpful.
It was a good experience to stay in this place. Very nice location and very spacious place. The hot tub was wonderful also especially after a long day touring Santa Fe.
