About the property

This comfortable 2 bedroom, 1 bath home is surrounded by gardens, rock walls and paths, and several monumental rock sculptures. The view of the Ortiz mountains from the living room and stone terrace is stunning, and the sunset views from the stone terrace are something to write home about. The living room boasts the largest shephard's fireplace ever, while also providing a wood-burning stove for contemporary warmth and atmosphere. The kitchen is fully furnished for cooking adventures, with dishes, cutlery, pots and pans, linens, pantry items, etc. Artwork, pottery and folkart are located throughout the casa, leading to interesting discoveries at every turn. Hiking opportunities are available just out the back door; but if contemplating the hummingbirds at the lavender is preferred, the gazebo is available for your enjoyment. WiFi is accessible throughout the casa as well as on the terrace and in the gazebo. When necessary, heat is available from a forced-air furnace. Washer and dryer are available for use.

Comfortable Stay in Santa Fe Area

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house last July. The house itself is extremely comfortable for two people. There is a large master bedroom which includes an office and is very comfortable. There is a second bedroom which is very small and suitable for 1 additional person. The living room/family room/kitchen is also very large and quite comfortable. The home is attractively furnished and comes complete with everything you might need. There is no TV in the living room, only a small set in the second bedroom. Owner provided information is a little sketchy and more instructions on operating heating/cooling plant, etc as well as restaurants, etc in the immediate area would be useful.

Property description isn’t kidding when it describes the road into the property. It is navigable in good weather but very rough. I suspect the suggestion of FWD in winter months is appropriate.

Setting is very impressive; on the side of a slope with great views. The patio off the living room was great for breakfast in the morning and pleasant in the late afternoons. The yard area and gazebo aren’t very useful. The yard is rough and native and the property isn’t too well illuminated at night.

Perfect Adobe Casa to Experience Santa Fe & the Country

  • 4 of 5

This classic Adobe home on a fairly remote hillside just a few miles out of the center of town was a perfect place to be able to enjoy the city of Santa Fe and all it has to offer while being able to also relax and experience the countryside of northern New Mexico.

The home is very comfortable while also well appointed with beautiful traditional southwestern decor. The grounds are also an amazing experience that invite you to explore all of the unique settings that have been created through ambitious rock work and landscape planning.

Could not have asked for a better property to spend our time in Santa Fe. We will definitely return and would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to experience both nature and the sites of Santa Fe.

Amazing home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!! When driving up to the home you think to yourself... "Awesome!!!!!". Amazing rock gardens and a killer view on the patio. The whole five days were were there everyone kept saying how beautiful the place was. Being pet friendly was also a major plus and this place made my vacation an amazing experience I will always remember. Will be renting again!!

Lovely stay!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a very pleasant month at Casa de las Piedras in the spring of 2016, while we explored Santa Fe and the surrounding region. We thoroughly enjoyed the views from the living room and terrace, the secluded feel of the place, and the very tasteful collection of art and artifacts that filled practically every surface of every room! Even the stone floors were covered with interesting rugs.

Strolling the very unusual property (we'd love to hear the story behind all the stonework!) was always an experience. There were birds and rabbits aplenty, and even a small group of mule deer paid a visit. The clamber (there's no real path) to the top of the hill behind the house was fun. The dirt road to the house is manageable, but does require some ground clearance, and your car will certainly get dusty.

My wife was working 4 days a week during our stay. Cellphone reception was fine, and the internet service was adequate (some days it seemed to suffer from dropouts, which were frustrating at times). The property manager was very accommodating and responsive to the few questions or issues we raised.

The television has an HDMI input, and so can be used for viewing from a properly equipped laptop. The excellent stereo has a CD changer; there's a collection of mainly classical CDs available. It also has the ability to play music from a USB thumb drive, which was a nice surprise.

Friends visited us over one weekend, and there was plenty of room for dining, snacking, relaxing, and talking.

Our dog is an eastern creampuff, so the rocks and harsh plants and cactii weren't his usual environment. We didn't let him off-leash much, out of concern for his safety (we were mainly concerned about him stepping on a prickly pear), but he's older, so it wasn't a big issue for us.
