We had a perfect stay at the Sun House. It is packed with amenities and details to make the stay very enjoyable. Ariel was a stellar host. She was extremely quick to respond with answers to questions which really put me at ease during the stay. All of our guests loved the place - I couldn't say more myself. It was perfect.
What a wonderful house and location in Santa Fe. The house was located in a nice quite area but with very easy access to the plaza, Canyon Road, etc.
The kitchen was fantastic with everything we needed available, the house was decorated nicely and Ariel has excellent taste (in our opinion). The wi-fi worked perfectly as well. We felt this house was a bargain in Santa Fe and can only hope that it's available if we visit again.
One thing to point out is that the house is not equipped with a TV but we actually found that to be a plus.
The house was really a great place with plenty of room for our large family to stay, lot's of space and a really great layout. There was everything we needed and the location was very convenient. The main reason we chose this space is that it was kid friendly and we have children and searched out for the perfect place for our family. This was really a sweet spot for the location and price, but there were a few things that weren't so great. There was a big back yard, but it was very dangerous and filled with debris and cut weeds spiking out of the ground, and wires etc., so we could not really use it like we were hoping, luckily there was a trampoline set up so the kids had something safe outside to do. Another thing that bothered us was that the house was up for sale and the owner was pretty aggressive about trying to have us let her show it one morning with only a couple of hours notice, and was kind of pushy about it, and this made it a bit uncomfortable for us, as it was not part of our rental agreement. Also we could not turn off/on the A/C unit as it seemed to be in the attached unit, and there were times we were very cold and it was very loud and we could not control it. This is overall a great place to stay, but there were moments of frustration staying there.
Ariel's place is a nice no frills room convenient to downtown Santa fe if you have a rental car. The place was basic and clean. It is an extra room off her main house, so there is plenty of privacy but the walls are thin and the unit is connected through the kitchen. Normally this would be fine but she had other renters at the time who were quite loud and we could hear them very well. The a/c comes under the door from the main unit, it was fine for us but probably wouldn't cut it for the heat sensitive.

We couldn't have asked for a better location to stay. It was extremely peaceful and just a short walk to downtown and the room was great. Ariel was always prompt in getting back to us whenever we had a question. I would definitely stay here again.
My husband and I were in Santa Fe for the Folk Art Market and we're so glad we stayed at the Sun House! The Sun House is close to all the action but far enough away to get a good nights sleep. The accommodations were excellent - no complaints! Ariel is good at getting back to you when you have any questions and this is much appreciated. We would happily stay with Ariel again.
We enjoyed a great stay at the Sun House! My family and I were in Santa Fe recently for a wedding and were very glad that we booked the Sun House during our stay. It was nicely furnished with a great kitchen, and we would certainly stay there again.
The location of the Sun House was ideal -- a short distance to groceries, eateries, local tourist attractions ... yet it is nestled in a quiet neighborhood with lots of space and privacy.
We had the entire home to ourselves, the trampoline was a plus to keep the kids entertained, and the kitchen was a joy to use with a full array of pots, pans, knives and spices should you want to spend a little time stocking the fridge and fixing a quick home-cooked meal. After your good eatin' you can relax on the back porch and grab a book to read from the broad and interesting books scattered throughout the house.
Overall the place was spacious, comfortable, clean, quiet and a nice home-away-from-home. Ariel was prompt to respond to the few questions we had and was very courteous and polite during all of our interactions.
If you're looking for a quiet place in Santa Fe to recharge, you can't go wrong at the Sun House!
