Santa Fe as Everyone Imagines

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4 adults, 2 children - age 10+)

Enjoy the very best of Santa Fe. This authentic Santa Fe home is located in the foothills of Tesuque. Pueblo Encantado, our private community entry is directly across from the Four Seasons resort and spa and 5 minutes from the Opera. This beautiful casita is just 10 minutes to perfect shopping, art galleries, and incredible restaurants in the center of Santa Fe. Heading north from Casita Jimez you will find yourself in the land of the Gods. Hiking, wildlife viewing, rafting, fishing and so much more are less than 45 minutes away. And just five minutes from the driveway takes you to one of the trail heads into the Santa Fe National forest.

Once you end your day you can return home to sit on the lovely patios and watch the sunset. You will find an elevated cocktail table so you can see spectacular views in all directions. There you can cook dinner on the new BBQ and eat under the stars. Or take the very short drive to many excellent restaurants. Upon your arrival, check inside the refrigerator. There you will find a welcome treat to begin your stay.

Inside the home, you will find new furnishings mixed with New Mexico antiques. It is a perfect place to light one of the two fireplaces, watch a good DVD or read. The full kitchen allows meals to be prepared, or brought in. In the master bedroom you will find a Kiva fireplace, and king size bed. Both the king bed and the twin bed in that room have wonderful feather Duvets to keep you warm. In the second bedroom with its private mountainside patio, you will find a queen bed and another twin bed, again with feather Duvets. Both bedrooms have TV's and good reading light.

A short stroll across the highway will put you at the Four Seasons resort and spa. Join them for dinner or one of their magnificent 'New Mexico Spa Treatments'. Or slip on your swimsuit, and use our properties very own pool in the summer.

Just minutes to the Santa Fe Opera and famous Flea Market. Other area attractions include Chimayo, Taos, Santa Fe ski basin, and Bandalier National Park.

NOTE: we REQUIRE that all guests purchase the minimum property damage protection, which is $59 per rental.

Check out is 11:00 AM, and check in is 4:00 PM to allow time for our fine cleaning staff.

About Jennifer Gaumond

This unit is owned by two couples who enjoy the outdoors, but love coming home to a very comfortable space. They enjoy cooking and use both the indoor kitchen and the outdoor patio to do just that. The kitchen is fully equiped with gourmet cooking tools to be used by all.

Jennifer Gaumond purchased this house in 2006

Why Jennifer Gaumond chose Santa Fe

Tesuque is just perfect because it is 8 minutes to the center of Santa Fe, yet sits in the foothills of the mountains. In thirty minutes you can be in Bandalera National Park for hiking, and some of the most relaxed picnics you can imagine. Biking is a must in this place.

What makes this house unique

We love listening to the coyotes, and watching for all other manners of wildlife right on our property. Walk five minutes across the highway and you can have spa treatments and a gourmet dinner at the Four Seasons Resort that offers nothing but luxury. With their single room rates at least double our rate for the whole house, it makes us feel like we get a bargain every time we visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a marvelous time. Your home is special and perfect and makes me want to move to Tesuque!

Great all around.

Lovely location. Quiet setting. Comfortable accommodations. We had a great time just lounging around and also enjoyed walking the roads and trails in the development. The owners communicate and are a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!

Casita Tucked in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

The casita is accessible to Santa Fe but a quiet respite from its crowds and noise. You could spend your days smelling the fresh air, enjoying the vistas and the pool and cooking a gourmet meal on the bbq or in the kitchen and feel quite satisfied. Alternatively you could do some of the above and also experience rich variety of New Mexico. The casita is comfortable inside and out. Everything was provided that we could want or need.

There were two of us and there was enough space for each of us to have our own space. It would also work well for two couples.

Great location and exceptional accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

This is a place I would return to over and over. So much better than staying right in town yet just a ten minute drive to the plaza. No more than 20 minutes from anywhere else

What a place!

  • 5 of 5

Can't wait to go back. Everything was wonderful. My daughter and I loved every minute we were there. She didn't even want to go out and eat. We cooked and ate on the patio. The view from the patio was incredible. Only minutes from the plaza in Santa Fe and not far from a lot of the wonderful sights in northern New Mexico. Already trying to plan my trip back for next year.

Owner's Response: THANK YOU so much for loving the house the way we do. We only thought it was us who couldn't break away to get to town for dinner. But lunch in the city each day works. We do home you return

A beautiful home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful five days staying in Tesuque. Our only complaint was our stay was too short! The pool is a short walk down an incline, and we spent a lot of time swimming and playing ping pong by the pool. The house was beautifully furnished, and we had plenty of space for our family, including my parents. The pictures of the bedrooms made them look much smaller than they actually were. We wanted to spend most of our time in the mountains so this location was wonderful, yet it was only about 15 minutes to the plaza in Santa Fe. We hope to return soon!

Wildlife on our property is in adundance...from deer to fox to coyotes. The groundskeeper tells us there are badger as well. Our home is situated on 140 acres with only 36 units so you know why so many animals call it home. And the birds are amazing. There is a bird feeder off the main patio with bird seed available for your use.
