Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Wonderful room, just as pictured, with a gorgeous bathroom as well. We had a lovely stay. The Full size bed was comfortable with plenty of extra pillows. The couch was a perfect spot to sit and read a book. We enjoyed getting to see Michael in action with his craftsmanship in cabinet making. He was able to steer my husband toward a perfect little hiking trail right out the back, which he found quite satisfactory. Michael also presented us with delicious little pecan pies as a snack - what a great treat! We very much enjoyed our stay at Michael and Diane's private little retreat.

  • My son and I had an absolutely lovely stay at Diane and Michael's for 4 nights. The space is gorgeous, beautifully designed, clean, and so homey. Diane and Michael are a beautiful pair and were so kind and welcoming with my son and me.

    Originally I was concerned that a host might not be excited about having a 3.5 year old in their space, but they were delightful with him. They even went out of their way to leave a little basket of toys for my son (which made him SO happy) and to inquire about whether we needed a crib. When I explained that we didn't, they had the sofa bed pulled out and made for us when we arrived, so after our long road trip, I could bring my sleeping boy right into bed. They engaged in his pretend play and made a point of checking in to know how we were doing throughout.

    (The morning we left, my son insisted that he didn't want to leave Santa Fe, and was very resistant to departing from our cozy room we had stayed in!)

    I would absolutely stay here again, and am grateful we had such a lovely space and hosts during our time in one of the most magical places in the world!

    We loved hosting Kelly and Gabriel....A very sweet little family....
    and lots of fun.....
    We hope they will return...

  • My boyfriend and I had a lovely time staying at Diane and Michael's. They were great hosts and even invited us over for cocktails our first night before our dinner reservation. We loved the place. It was cozy and comfortable. Perfect for what we were looking for. The heated floors were great for the cold weather we got, and we fell asleep to a fire in the fireplace every night. It was wonderful! It was also within a 10 minute walking distance to the plaza, which was nice to not have to drive every day to where we wanted to go. Michael also cooked us an absolutely delicious breakfast one morning we were there upon request! Yum yum! Definitely recommend staying with Diane and Michael.

    We wish them luck in their adventures and hope to see them again someday!

  • Our stay with Diane and Michael was great! The room was beautiful, the location was perfect and Diane and Michael couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. Our stay in Santa Fe wouldn't have been as lovely without them! Cannot recommend enough!

    Thank You Nadine and Byorn!
    We miss you and hope you are having a great time in LA!
    Safe travels back to Sweden, be it a freighter or plane!
    And we hope to see you in Italy sometime in the near future!

  • Beautiful and serene setting with incredible hosts who provided a very welcoming place. The choice of an early morning walk into the hills or into the plaza was not difficult. A perfect location for those wanting activity or those wanting some quiet time in the hills. Any future visits in Santa Fe will be here. Hosts were full of local information and great conversations.

  • I can't say enough about what wonderful hosts Diane and Michael are! First, the space is lovely and private. And an easy walk to the Plaza. Diane and Michael were welcoming and warm. On the first night of our arrival, Diane not only gave us suggestions on where to eat but went out of her way to call and make the reservation for us. My son declared his favorite part of the trip was eating breakfast with them every morning. He also very much enjoyed feeding their chickens after breakfast every day with Diane. Others traveling during the cooler months might be interested to hear that there is a fireplace in the room which was a wonderful cap to the days.
    We will definitely try and stay with Diane and Michael when we visit Santa Fe again.

  • Diane and Michael's place was really really wonderful. Although they were away and we unfortunately didn't get to enjoy their company we found the location and the room perfect for us. Out of the hustle and bustle, it was a lovely private retreat to come back to every night and it gave us a great sense of living like a local. The room was really beautiful and spacious. Dianne was great communicating with us during the whole booking process, giving us directions and general information. On her recommendation we got to meet and chat with her lovely neighbours who were extremely helpful. Looking forward to staying there again one day.

  • This was a wonderful place to stay. The room was very comfortable and beautiful. Diane and Michael were helpful hosts and really made us feel welcome. There was a lot of variety to the continental breakfast and we enjoyed eating it out on the patio. We enjoyed our conversations with Diane and information about the area and the fiesta which happened during our visit. Did I mention this place is within walking distance of the plaza?

    Response from Diane & Michael:

    We let Pamela and Ken know, that we were having our annual Fiesta Party the night they were to arrive. They were fine with that! And we were delighted they joined the Party!
    Great People, we hope we see them again!

  • Staying at Diane and Michael's home was perfect! My friend and I were hoping to stay somewhere nice and not too pricey and this was the perfect choice! We were able to walk into town and back "home" every day so only used our rental car when we left the city of Santa Fe for the day. The room and bathroom were comfortable, clean, and quiet. The neighborhood was great and possibly one of the best things about staying there was the lovely walk from their home in to The Plaza. Also, they had breakfast out for us every morning and it was lovely to eat a light breakfast out on their back porch before starting the day. I would definitely stay here again and/or tell friends and family to stay here as well.

    Response from Diane & Michael:

    Lori and her childhood friend were a delight to have stay with us!
    The only thing is that we did not get to see them much, as they were out and about sight seeing, and wine tasting! We are so happy they had a great time at our place!

  • My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the home of Diane and Michael. The room was quiet, with its own entrance and private bath; a lovely antique bed; a delicious breakfast to eat on the patio; and no traffic outside the windows! When we went to leave for the Opera, Michael even offered to try to find some binoculars! We plan to stay again. WAY better than a hotel, by any measure.
