Overview

About the property

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 20 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.

Girls trip

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, we were not there much, but when we were, we enjoyed the house. The hot water was great, never ran out. Each having our own bedrooms was wonderful. It is a little far out of town, but close enough to the highway to get anywhere quickly.

If you go, take a hot air balloon ride with Johnny Lewis, it was wonderful, he is a great pilot.

Thanks Bill for sharing your house.

Everything we needed and hoped for

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, comfortable, clean and quiet. pleanty of linen and all kitchen itensils provided and also sharp knives, wich were a welcome difference. Wonderful to be rural yet so close to Santa Fe. We heard coyotes at night, went for lovely walks in the cool mornings and used the local community swimming pool often. Great communication with Bill. Would recommend highly.

Very comfortable, quiet, great for families

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying here and it was still great! The house amenities and floor plan are great for families. Having two walled in yards was good for the kids to run around.

Nice home in quiet community outside Santa Fe.

  • 3 of 5

I would like to start by saying this is a nice 3br home with easy access to nearby attractions. The beds are very comfortable and all the furnishings are nice... We stayed for a week in June with 4 adults and our 21 mos old son. There was a community recreation area nearby with a nice playground and pool which our son enjoyed. Bill was a a available immediately by phone when we called and very graciously worked with the community center to get us guest pool passes( thank you !). We did encounter a broken toilet seat upon arriving and this was reported and immediately addressed and replaced........ as for suggestions and things to consider...... one does need to take in to consideration that there is no cooling system and while there are fans in each bedroom there is no fan in the main family and kitchen area and it was quite hot during our stay. Even with keeping the windows and doors open during the cool hours and keeping them closed and the curtains drawn during the day the temperature in the main part of the house was in the 80's ... the master bedroom would not cool down below 80 until well into the early morning hours. It would have been nice to have had a box fan for the living area , particularly because we had a couple of nights when there was no breeze. We have stayed in El Dorado before but there was always a swamp cooler which makes a huge difference. As for my other concerns, because we did have to have the screened sliding doors open so much we did encounter many spiders... also there is no garbage disposal and a limited supply of kitchen garage bags .. I would also make a suggestion of having more toilet paper.... we had 4 rolls for 5 people for a week. And the master bath only had one washcloth.... plenty of towels but only 5 washcloths total for 5 people for a week and only 2 dish towels and 2 dishcloths which made for more frequent laundry. The kitchen was well stocked except for limited storage containers for left overs and only 2 ice trays for a fridge that does not have ice maker. Overall would stay again but not in summer months.

Owner's Response: Hi Shannon, Thanks for the review. I was at the house last June, so I know how hot it is in June. The afternoon monsoons start in July. The monsoons bring afternoon clouds and a cooling breeze Bill Steiner

Comfortable, Quiet Home just outside of Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The house was clean, comfortable and attractively decorated. Pride of ownership was evident throughout. The kitchen was well stocked so we were able to make many meals at home. Santa Fe is about 15 minutes and offered a ton of restaurants. Restaurants near the home are limited and it's about a 15 min drive to a larger grocery store. We would absolutely stay again. Thank you Bill!
