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.

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

Great view plenty of room

  • 4 of 5

The place was very nice, a little rustic but nice. Plenty of room with a great view. Needs some up dating.

Views are spectacular.

  • 5 of 5

The property is clean, well cared for and has all the amenities for at least a 10 day stay. The owner cares and is available to you for assistance while allowing you your privacy. The location is secluded in atmosphere but close to many attractions and in proximity to many more.

Great location and excellent owners.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the weekend with my wife's family and had a great time. We wanted to be out of the city but close by and this place fit the bill. A quiet house in a neat neighborhood. Jake was excellent! He made sure that we had plenty of room to park our trailer with 4wheelers and even got us in contact with a friend of his to show us the best places around to hit the trails. He went above and beyond. It was a great place to stay.

Best Sunset View in Placitas Area

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place! Cool furnishings and artwork. The steel puzzle thing was a gas to all.

Hope this property will still be available for our next trip to New Mexico in the near future.

Viewing the night sky from the huge deck was fantastic also. Saw several shooting stars. What a cool place. Our only regret? We couldn't stay longer.

Location

Car: necessary

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.
