The Space

Bright charming studio with high ceilings, loft with view of the Sangre De Cristo and Sandia Mountains. Unobstructed night skies with no street lights to dim the beauty of the stars. You can hear the coyotes howl nearby and enjoy the pristine mountain air. The views are great and you can see all the major mountain ranges. Sunrise floods the loft in the morning and sunset filters through the pinon trees to your private patio and front door. Located just 15 minutes from the first exit into Santa Fe with hiking and ski trails right from your door. An hour away from free hot springs and the ski area. Very quiet and peaceful retreat space. Full kitchen and bath. private entrance, wood stove and electric heat. The downstairs has Saltillo tile and the loft has wood floors. The loft has a queen size bed and the living room futon pulls out into a full size bed. Both beds are very comfortable. The private patio has an area for outdoor meals and 2 lounge chairs for watching the sun set over the Sandia Mountains. When it warms up, a hammock under an old pinon tree makes an excellent place for lazy afternoons.

Wifi, movie streaming, utilities and firewood included. Off street parking right outside your door. Very pure and excellent tasting well water.

The Agora shopping center is 5 miles away and has a full grocery store (including organic produce), restaurants, coffee shops, library, bank, free bus line to Santa Fe, post office, fitness and yoga studios. It's about 11 miles to the edge of town and half of that distance is on the freeway.

I live next door and can help you find your way in Santa Fe and the surrounding areas. I've lived in Santa Fe for over 16 years but was born in the Netherlands and speak dutch, some french and German. I am a hospice nurse, Ayurvedic massage therapist and yoga teacher. I specialize in personal healing retreats.

My husband and I are yoga/qigong teachers and we build a yoga platform on a nearby mesa about 15 miles from our house. We use it for outdoor retreats and classes. Our guests are welcome to use it at anytime. We love to share our place with other yogis --or any one who can appreciate tranquility- and show you the natural beauty of this area

Interaction with Guests

I normally like to meet and greet you in the beginning but then it is up to you how much interaction you like.

The Neighborhood

Very quiet and lots of hiking right from your door.

Getting around

Free bus into Santa Fe from the nearby shopping center about 5 miles from our house. So it is best to have your own car.

  • Jolanda was great, and informed us about many awesome local spots for eats and travel. Great energy, the place was beyond our expectations, and we had a lovely trip. Thank you!

  • We really enjoyed staying here. It was really nice to be close to Santa Fe but far enough outside to enjoy the peace and quiet. The space is light and airy, and it was no nice to go out for an evening walk at sunset. It's so nicely decorated and we loved having a nice clean kitchen to prepare meals. Jolanda clearly took time and care into decorating the studio with inspiring books and calming decor. There's great hiking nearby and excellent restaurants not far in Santa Fe (we are gluten free, dairy free, and meat free and we were impressed). Would definitely recommend to others.

  • The house was very clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Only a short drive to Santa Fe.

  • Perfect, perfect, perfect! We had a great time and already miss it. Quiet, private but still 20 minutes from downtown Santa Fe. What a peaceful location....well done. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to all of Airbnb, family and friends. Be sure to check out Harry's Roadhouse for a great meal and atmosphere. Thanks you guys, our time on your property was amazing!

  • We had a spectacular time staying at this beautiful studio just on the outskirts of Santa Fe. Jolanda was so informative and friendly, dealt graciously with a couple of late arriving honeymooners! It could not have been a better stay! The studio was sparkling clean, the space was welcoming and warm, and had great kitchen amenities. This area is removed from Santa Fe by about 10-15 minutes drive and gives the calm relaxation of a remote location with the convenience of easy striking distance to all the fun adventure that Santa Fe offers. Simply put, if you are looking for the ideal studio retreat for you and your loved one this is the place for you!!!

  • Jolanda's studio apartment is absolutely lovely, a serene and airy haven. And Jolanda is a wonderful person; she welcomed us with grace and warmth and made us feel so glad to be there!

    No only that, but she gave us a wealth of information about special activities and special, off-the-beaten-track places to go and see. We got to almost every place she mentioned, and we were always glad that we'd done so--they were all so interesting and unique! And her husband Jivann (sp?) is a lovely person, too.

    We would have we enjoyed our stay in the apartment no matter what, but their warm, soothing presence made it feel even more magical! If the opportunity presents itself, we'd love to stay there again!

  • We had a wonderful, peaceful time in Jolanda's lovely studio in the high dessert near Santa Fe. Jolanda was very kind and friendly and helpful and she gave us much good information, including maps about the area and places to visit. Her place was so peaceful, we loved "coming home" to it each night. Everything was comfortable, clean and pleasant and great! We plan to come back sometime!!! Thanks to Jolanda and her husband for a wonderful experience.

  • Jolanda's studio in El Dorado was quiet and comfortable. I especially appreciated the suggestions Jolanda gave me when I arrived about places to go, and favorites of hers, several of which I would not have found on my own. It was an ideal place for me to begin my time in Santa Fe.

  • The wide open sky welcomed us as we wound our way through the desert to Jolanda's studio. She has created a beautiful space to be. Clean, comfortable, full of little touches of tranquility. It was a wonderful stay.

  • My lady and I had a wonderful stay at Jolanda's studio. The place was clean and spacious and private. Jolanda checked in with us daily and offered sweet tips. Thank you Jolanda. If we're back to Santa Fe, (likely) we'd love another stay.

I have been living in New Mexico since 1993 but was born and raised in the Netherlands. I live just outside of Santa Fe in a passive solar house on about 1 1/2 acres. The studio is on the same property but has no shared walls with the house and is very private. My favorite place to be is right here at home where every day feels like a vacation. I'm a hospice nurse, Ayurvedic massage therapist and yoga teacher. I love to garden, hike, soak in natural hot springs and practice natural medicine and way of living. I enjoy having guests staying at the studio and guiding them to cultural, spiritual and natural destinations, whether off the beaten path or well known. I also love creating a space where people can retreat from the world, relax and take in the beauty of this inspiring high desert.
