In 2018, Trip 101 Magazine selected my listing as #4 best place of Santa Fe.
Mystic Traveler is similar toMeow Wolf in decor. It is Unique of most listings. SEE PICS. It's like a live-in art installation. There are lots of crannies to explore inside and out. Very easy off street parking. It is an OASIS tucked away about 100 yards from the river. 2 miles near plaza 1 Mile from Meow Wolf. Restaurants, grocery, wine store, and entertainment close by. $10 uber ride to all of town.

The space
Lots of comfortable seating areas in the front yard with extras such as a propane fire sculpture and lots of decks revamped and opening July 4th..
Because of the recent covid situation I have worked very hard to make the outside and inside amazing for my new sets of guests. Hand Sanitizer and masks are available if you are in need of extras.

The front yard is filled with many solar lights and lighting plus
LOTS OF UMBRELLAS AND LIGHTS IN THE FRONT YARD(May 15 to October 20. GUESTS LOVE THE WATER FEATURES AND LIGHTS. (some of the lights are stored after November 1)

The inside space offers many lighting features all which turn on and off automatically. Sit back and watch the lighting AUTOMATICALLY evolve over the night. If you don't like lights there is a switch to turn off the lights. (see print out sheet on arrival)

Please - If you have never booked with air b n b before and do not have any reviews from other hosts I would appreciate knowing that. This listing is not a hotel vibe. It is popular for people who love the unique essence of creative spaces. I have 85% 5 star ratings. My best guests are single and mixed couples ages 25 to 50 coming to visit Meow Wolf from Colorado. If you love a hotel vibe (minimal and touristy) please choose a hotel. Apparently some people find my collections of unique items to be annoying and others find it festive and fastenating . This is more of an eclectic artists installation type of place! It is not for everyone. The pictures are all very current so please check them out and show your prospective guests prior to booking.

The master bedroom is quite spacious and the kitchen is next to the dining area so you can cook and converse with YOUR guests.
The living room is very cozy with an elegant velvet red chaise lounge, and other unique and comfortable seating. There is a large master bedroom , a guest bedroom a couple of single beds in the common areas. I generally accept a couple or 2 for this listing.
You can see all of this in the current pictures which are in the listing.
The extra long couch in the living room is super cozy for your 5th person.

Please make sure all of your guests are in agreement to what this listing looks like.
This is important as my listing is a one of a kind type of place.

Since March I have gotten mostly 5 star reviews. I have made many renovations on the space both inside and outside during the winter months. This place is not for everyone. If you like a hotel vibe please rent a hotel. It includes a g scale train collection and art work by famous artists in the listing. Remember Salvador Dali? I have one of his originals here.


This is listed as an entire place. and it is an apartment. The entire place is a compound and there is plenty of privacy while staying in the listing. There is a long term guest house in the back of the property that is occupied by a very nice gentleman who leaves for work in the early morning and comes home late in the evening usually.

Guest access
Parking is in the street or driveway which has a space for one car. Access to the place is super easy and all on the same level and is wheel chair accessible. Please park only in the driveway or in front of the house only. My neighbors need their spaces for their guests. There is access to a nice outside dining area with lights and water features for guests to use while they are visiting.

Other things to note
If you like Meow Wolf and Burning Man then you will love my taste in furniture and ambiance. The listing is 100 yards from the Santa Fe river. It is one mile from Groceries and a liquor store and about 1.5 miles from down town.

There are many local areas of interest within walking distance from here.
I have a sheet which will explain all that there is to do with in a 7 minute drive from the location.

IF YOU CHECK IN OTHER THAN TIME BETWEEN 4PM AND 6PM , It is likely that I will give you the needed instructions and key code needed so you can do your own check in especially on Friday and Saturday evenings.
If you find yourself more than an hour off schedule please give me a call or text so I will not be waiting and wondering when you might arrive. I always appreciate a one hour call so I can greet you if I am out and about town doing errands. Thanks for that.

It helps if you let me know your sleeping needs. There are a few times when 2 people booking does not mean a couple. It is not a huge issues however helps create a nicer flow if I know up front what sleeping arrangements well be needed.

If there is something that you object about the listing please let me know within an hour of arrival. Strict cancellation policy on this booking.

Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States

The neighborhood is easy going professional people near by. All of my neighbors love what I have done to the front yard.

The river walk is less than 100 yards from the property and there is a labyrinth 2 miles down stream and several parks near by.


It is light with solar lights at night.

I have lived in Santa Fe for 25 years and know my way around town and many of the areas in Northern New Mexico. I have a great circle of friends which visitors might enjoy as they visit Santa fe. I have performed percussion and timpani with the santa fe symphony, pro music, and the Albuquerque opera and many of the music groups in town. I enjoy spending time with notable movie producers and sound people who work in the music and film business. I love traveling to Bali to listen to Balinese gamelan. I have toured with Sekar Jaya in the west coast. I find Balinese music to be fast paced and very exciting. My travels include Asia, India, and Burning man. Some of the production people live near me. Ekart Tolle is one of my favorites. The world is changing and it seems important to grow food and follow some parts of the current world events however I seldom watch commercial television. I enjoy watching nature programs with my dog especially the ones about wolves. 5 things 1. Music in Santa Fe 2. Culture and friends in my life 3. I love building things and creating unique sculptures with light and found objects. 4. Great people who are visitors from other places 5. Dinners with friends

During your stay
I am happy to direct you to all of Santa Fe which might be walking and bike trails and out of the way local restaurants which you probably would never find on your own.
I can also schedule a trip for you to visit some of the local sand stone caves around the area. See my listed photos. (cost is $95 per person and includes lunch) based on availability. Schedule early in warmer months.

I have all of the current local hiking trail books plus hot springs books here at the house. You do not need to wonder if you missed anything. It is here and a spread sheet of everything going on in town along with the best restaurants to fit your taste buds. A guide is available to hire ask me about that!


I leave it up to the guests as to whether they like to socialize. Some appreciate it more than others. Usually couples prefer to be left alone as they are on their own holiday. It varies with every guest; however many people ask lots of questions about the place once they have been here for a day or so.
