Work in telecom policy, happy resident on the Chama River in NM, wife of art director in film.
We were so happy when we arrived. The house is beautiful and was perfect for our travel needs. It was close to Ojo Caliente spa, hiking, Santa Fe...but the magic of the experience was the house itself. It is near the river with a gazebo for reading and relaxing. The view of the cliff and surrounding foothills are gorgeous. The house is beautifully decorated and has plenty of room with outdoor patios and a screened in porch. The kitchen and living room are lovely, open with great views. We loved it!
Susan was immediately responsive to my questions. She was helpful recommending local hikes and other attractions. Her directions were perfect. I highly recommend this home.
The host canceled this reservation 155 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I spent a wonderful weekend at Susan and Jim's while en route to Washington state. Their house was a beautiful and magical place with lots of good energy and attention to artistic details. The weather during my stay was perfect, so I spent time working in "Big Pink" - their Chama riverside screened-in gazebo ("gazebo" doesn't even do it justice!) - while watching the sun set on the cliffs across the river and shimmer through the huge cottonwoods. Perfect! I had a chance to visit with Susan and Jim before they left, and their house resonates the same warmth as they do. The location is convenient to Bandelier, Ojo Caliente, and Santa Fe, but the serene setting puts you far away from everything. I'll definitely be back.
We absolutely loved our stay at Jim and Susan's! The pictures do not do it justice. The property is just stunning: just a short walk down to the Chama River, past the adorable screened-in gazebo where we enjoyed lounging and reading with the sounds of the river to accompany us. The house gets fantastic light and with the portals and thick adobe walls, really feels like old New Mexico. The beds are really comfy and the house is beautifully furnished with a well-equipped kitchen. We loved hanging out with the chickens and ate fresh eggs each morning we were there.
The location is really ideal for exploring New Mexico if you want a jumping off point to explore Santa Fe and Taos. Ghost Ranch is also a short drive away with its amazing cliffs and hikes. And Ojo Caliente (my very favorite spa!) is closest of all.
Susan was very helpful in figuring out the logistics of our trip and her emails were full of great advice and humor. We will definitely try to book with them again for our next trip to NM. Love Love Love!!
Marisa and Colin were excellent guests! We would always welcome them back.
Susan and her daughter Emma were amazing guests. They are friendly, fun and easygoing. We really enjoyed talking with them and hearing about their various adventures in our area. They left the room neat and clean. We'd love to welcome them back anytime!
excellent guests and good communication
Alberto met us from the Alilaguna and took us directly to the apartment. He gave us good information about the neighborhood and was a very good host.
It has been an immense please to have Susan and her husband in my flat. This was for a special occasion as it was Susan birthday. The communication with Susan was perfect and fast. They reached the flat on the agreed time.
They felt at home, Susan took care of the flat and were very respectful of the neighborhood.
Susan left the flat in a very good condition and she washed all the bed sheets and towels which have been used.
I will definitely welcome Susan and her husband for their next trip to Paris. Very trustworthy people!
Susan's daughter Emma stayed with me and she was a real pleasure. Always polite and cheerful, I thoroughly enjoyed having her stay at my home and she seemed to really enjoy her jogs in Collingswood's parks. I wish her much luck in the medical field and I hope she gets the residency she wants!
Susan and her company were the most delighting guests, really nice chat we had and how tidy was my place left! Pleased to meet so nice travellers!
It was really wonderful to meet Susan and her husband and a pleasure to host them - what fantastic guests! You are welcome here anytime again!
Susan was a great guest - super communication, left the apartment really tidy and offered some excellent suggestions for the unit that I will absolutely attend to!
Thanks for choosing us - hope you had fun in Denver!
Susan & Emma were wonderful guests! Always with a big smile! We will be happy to see them again soon!
Good guest, good communication during their stay.
