Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Placitas - Casa Vista Hermosa In Placitas

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom (Sleeps 10)

Relatively New To Vacation Rental Market -

We moved from this home a few years ago and decided to make a vacation rental out of it because we knew folks would really appreciate the warmth and charm of it and the incredible setting and views from the deck, not to mention the proximity to both the natural Soutwestern environment and 'civilization.' There is so much to do and see in the area most people who have come to visit wish they had more time to spend. We have another smaller vacation rental property nearby and have enjoyed hosting many guests in the past couple of years. That listing is VRBO #279332 and you can read some reviews from some of our guests who have stayed with us there. Both properties can be rented together for large family gatherings or weddings, accommodating up to 16 guests.

Suitability:
  • Events Allowed
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Jake Finkelstein

We were both born in Brooklyn NY but met in Taos NM in 1971, got married and raised our family between New Mexico and Upstate NY through the years. We finally chose NM as our permanent home, and found this hidden GEM in Placitas about 15 years ago. It is close enough to a population center to pursue my career as an auctioneer, but out in the country where we had room to roam, enjoy the peace and quiet of rural setting, gorgeous sunsets, starry nights and even keep horses.

Jake Finkelstein purchased this house in 1998

Enchanting and Relaxing Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home offered a unique and quiet location which is conducive to complete relaxation. The house was perfectly suited for our group of 10. The home was well stocked with everything needed for the kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms, etc. The scenic views were stunning especially from deck that was perfect for entertaining. The owners were extremely helpful with any questions regarding the home and points of interest. We definitely would recommend this property to our friends and family.

Welcoming, large home

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with our stay in this home. The house was so spacious, and had everything we needed. There were nine of us (four kids) and we had extra space. Jake was more than helpful, and was extremely responsive to our needs. The beautiful deck gave us even more space to enjoy the beautiful Sandia Foothills. We enjoyed a grilled out dinner watching the amazing sunset. The neighborhood was quiet and friendly. My kids loved the selection of DVD movies available. We really wanted a New Mexico experience in terms of the scenery, and home. And we did not want to be right on top of the neighbors. We had that and more at this house, yet we had easy access to Albuquerque and many of the surrounding attractions. If you are looking for a spacious home that has everything you will need (and more) for your stay - look no further. You have found it in this home. Thank you for allowing us our home away from home !

Great location, beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during a recent visit to Albuquerque and just love the place! The owners, Jake and Robyn, are very attentive to the needs their guests. What a beautiful, eclectic, comfortable home. The large that overlooks the sunsets in the summer and the view is absolutely spectacular!

Great place near Albuquerque and Santa Fe!

  • 5 of 5

Great home with plenty of space and beautiful scenery. The kitchen was just what we needed for breakfast our first morning. The owner gave us great advice on a day trip and was very helpful with everything. We will definitely stay here again when we come this way. They also had some horses down at their property and invited us to come down and feed and pet them. Great place for family or friends to stay while in the area.

Awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

Nice, roomy house with a huge kitchen. Plenty of comfortable bedrooms. The highlight of this home has got to be evenings on the deck captivated by the awesome view of the sunset! Absolutely gorgeous view! Thank you for your hospitality Robin and Jake!

adjacent to 5000 acres of Open Space for hiking, biking and horseback riding. Horse stalls available on property for small extra charge. Beautiful rural setting but only 10 minutes to good shopping, restaurants, casino resorts and major highway access. 15 minutes to the International Balloon Fiesta Park, site of the largest Hot Air Balloon Festival Event in the World every October. Awesome day-trips into the Jemez Mountains and Santa Fe. Truly a Way Out West Experience.
