Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Eldorado at Santa Fe - Casa Avila

Former Model Home, 3 Bedroom, Two bath

Enjoy our retreat from the Silicon Valley.

Three Bedroom, two bath, bright, open, furnished home with Santa Fe style and comfort.

El Dorado is 25 square miles of high desert beauty, but we're a mile to the main road which makes an easy 15-20 minute drive to Santa Fe. Away from the bustle, El Dorado is where the stargazing ramps up to another level.

You'll find lots of world class restaurants in Santa Fe, but we have a few local favorites that are not on the usual tourist list: The Swiss Bakery, Chocolate Maven, & Cafe Fina.

Eldorado has 10,000 acres with pool, community center and stables. Greenbelt areas for walking, running and biking, with nearby hiking trails. Shopping, cafe, grocery, and restaurants are less than a mile away.

About Bill Steiner

We live in the Silicon Valley and have been coming to Santa Fe for the last 15 years. We fell in love with the area and especially El Dorado. We're avid hikers and skiers. We love all the options to enjoy the outdoors that Santa Fe has to offer.Santa Fe offers a lot of unique dining options that are not available even in the foodie rich San Francisco Bay Area.

Bill Steiner purchased this house in 2003

Why Bill Steiner chose New Mexico

We spent two years looking for properties in El Dorado. Every property seemed to have a problem. Usually is came down the the floor plan or the quality of construction. We missed out on one property with an amazing view next to the greenbelt, but we did well. The house was a former model, and it fit us to a tee. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

A Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house in September. We have rented houses before in Santa Fe, but this was the best one we have stayed in. The house is beautiful inside and out. The kitchen was wonderful as the owner has great appliances and everything you would need to cook a meal. The bathrooms are very nice and the bedrooms are too, with very comfortable beds. The living room furniture is functional and comfortable. The house has several furnished outdoor patios where you can enjoy your morning coffee, an al fresco meal, or a glass of wine in the evening. We are very happy with finding this wonderful Santa Fe getaway.

This home in Eldorado was fantastic. I would give it 6 stars.

  • 5 of 5

Bill Steiners home in Eldorado was VERY nice. It was close to interstate 25, which got us to just about anyplace we wanted to go. It took us about 10 minutes to get into Santa Fe's downtown, where there were plenty of supermarkets to go shopping in. There was also a very nice supermarket right down the road from the house if one did not want to go into Santa Fe's downtown. The home was very clean. It was beautifully landscaped and in an Eldorado community where one house was nicer than the next. The homes were on at least 5 acres of land so you had plenty of privacy if you wanted it. The inside of the house was also nicely decorated, and the kitchen had just about every utensel one would need. We BBQ several nights on the grill that was on the front patio. If one wished you could go out and pick apples off the apple tree and bake a pie for dessert.

The sunsets were beautiful to watch from the backyard. I would recommend this home to anyone, who would not mind the 10 minute ride into Santa Fe proper, Eldorado is a nice place to stay. There are plenty of restaurants to go to if one does not want to cook in.

Beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home while vacationing in Santa Fe. The home was beautiful and the views were awesome! The house was spotless and had everything our family needed. Only 15 minutes from Santa Fe; it was so nice to leave the hustle and bustle and come home in the evenings to a quiet neighborhood. Will definitely stay here again should we visit this area again.

The second time was just as nice as the first!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last Thanksgiving and said we would return! The home is still nicely maintained.....clean and comfortable! We were somewhat concerned about the lack of air conditioning, but it was comfortable for the most part. One day got a bit warm, but soon cooled down when evening came. It's a quiet neighborhood, which is what we're looking for on vacation. The amenities are just fine....wifi, cable TV, etc. We also appreciate the walled-in front and back yards for the kids to play. I'm sure we will return again!

Nice, clean house just close enough to enjoy Santa Fe but far enough for the relaxing peace + quiet.

  • 5 of 5

The house was all set for us when we arrived. Directions were easy enough. We liked the layout of the house and the back porch. Yes, we would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice comments. The house is an ongoing project and will probably never be "finished." Since your stay last month, we added flagstone to the back porch portal and to the patio off the kitchen. Landscaping the back yard is currently underway. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Getting five stars never gets old.
