Enjoy your own private pool, a 3-bedroom house and a 1-bedroom guesthouse (both houses included in rental). All on a beautifully landscaped property with amazing sunset views.

This is a dedicated vacation rental that was new on the market in 2014.

Tesuque is arguably the most sought-after part of Santa Fe. Just north of town, it's quiet, yet close to everything. Tesuque is one of the greener parts of Santa Fe with cottonwoods lining the Tesuque River. It's an amazing place to experience the nature of the high-desert.

About Christopher Turner

I'm photographer who does landscapes and portraits and my husband is a a writer best known for a series of novels called 'Tales of the City'. We live in San Francisco, but use this house as our mountain retreat.

Christopher Turner purchased this house in 2012

Why Christopher Turner chose Santa Fe

We fell in love with Tesuque the first time we came to Santa Fe. We found this place and not only did we love the house, but the land was more magical than anything we had looked at in Santa Fe. There are two arroyos on the property as well as cliffs up behind the house that are called the Tesuque Table. The view up in the mountains is amazing, and sunsets are stunning. The pool is our favorite feature of the house... especially in the summer. On almost any summer afternoon when we're in Santa Fe you'll find us enjoying the pool.

What makes this house unique

The large open living space is great for entertaining. The pool is a huge joy. The casita (guest house) makes a very private getaway if more than one couple is staying on the ranch.

We had an amazing business retreat here in early November. While the pool wasn't in season, this house was still perfect for our needs. The kitchen was a joy to cook in, the decor was great, all the beds were comfy. Everything we could need was provided. Mark maintained a high level of communication with us. I can't recommend this place enough!

Our desert retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The setting was just perfect for our 5-person get-away... The main house is beautiful, well-maintained, well-stocked and in a quasi-remote setting yet still accessible to local restaurants and only 15 minutes to Santa Fe. We also used the casita which allowed us to spread out and each have our own space while at the property. Being in the house is so tranquil, nearby hiking and the sunsets from the roof are fantastic! Mark met us at the house and couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating.

Pure love!

  • 5 of 5

I just can't describe how much my family enjoyed this house! My children did not want to leave! The location is beautiful and extremely close to downtown while having utter privacy. The house is so comfortable, with everything you would need for an amazing vacation. The super cool guest house was such a bonus for a few extra family members that joined us. And the pool...the pool was by far the pinnacle! Being able to have a pool right out your doorstep was incredible. With small children in and out of the pool all day long, it was so nice to be able to see them through the wide open sliding glass wall while I was cooking or doing a puzzle or reading a magazine. The sunsets were stunning and we really just wish we could all go back! Thank you for opening your beautiful home to my family!

Perfect setting, location and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We just rented this beautiful property for the third time. Each stay has been wonderful. We brought our adult children and our dog and everyone loved it. Mark is always informative, responsive and a wonderful 'host'. He even came to check on the dog when we spent the day rafting! We highly recommend this property without hesitation

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Rancho Rosado is outstanding: the house, the infinity pool, the casita, and the magnificent views. Our family of eight had a wonderful stay at the Rancho. It's a perfect spot from which to enjoy all the great things Santa Fe has to offer. Mark Johnson, the property manager was very helpful in getting us off to a great start. Thanks to all for a great experience!
