Fantastic Private Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I'll start off by staying that I normally do not leave reviews; however, this place warrants one. I wanted a private secluded place for my wife and I to unwind for the weekend and this place delivered. Very quaint and cozy...the home is an attached home so there are neighbors next door; however, we didnt see them once and never really heard them. The way the porch and fire pit are setup make it feel as if you are all alone in the mountains! I was looking something with true a true Santa Fe feeling/vibe and this place was it...tons and tons of character. There are some imperfections about this home on its interior, but thats really what make it so special. Overall, we are extremely happy with our stay and will be staying here again in the future! Cheers!

Cozy and quiet

Private, quiet and very comfortable home. Clean and spacious. Would highly recommend this property for its interior amenities and outside space. Owner has great communication and we would stay there again. We had a relaxing time!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed on the Casa de la Vaca while visiting Santa Fe for a concert. The casa was so nice that our only regret was not staying longer. The interior is cozy and filled with light. There are several outdoor areas to soak up the sun by day or gaze at the stars by night. We enjoyed both! Little birdies visited the bird feeder while we sat in the dining area and humming birds came to the feeder in the fire pit area. I thought that was an especially nice touch because I love to see birds that are different from what I see at home. I especially enjoyed how quiet the setting was and that's exactly why I did not want to stay in Santa Fe proper. I highly recommend this lovely casita.

Cozy home with incredible views!

  • 5 of 5

This home provided a great perfect winter getaway for my family. The home is super cozy and so quaint. This little home has so much charm and the views are amazing!! We celebrated Christmas here and we had about 4" of snow to top off the wonderful experience. The house has EVERYTHING you need! We slept so well at night and enjoyed every minute of our day! Perfection!!

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property. It is decorated and appointed as though you were staying in someone's home as a guest. It is probably nicer than the pictures can convey. It is close enough to the Plaza (about 20 minutes), yet definitely has the feel and location of being in the high desert and mountains. You can go for a hike right out the front door. Fishing is about 30 minutes away in the Pecos area. The owner was great to deal with and the immediate neighbor was a "hoot", and very nice too! We plan to stay there again and would recommend the property to friends.

  • 3 of 5

While we enjoyed our two week stay at this home in late July 2016, having stayed at probably a dozen outstanding Santa Fe area VRBO homes over the years, this one earns a three star rating, as it could use some attention in a number of spots.

Inside - at the base of the stairs there is a sunken area in the brick floor that is filled-in by covering with two or three rugs/mats; the glass pane one one of the kitchen cabinets is cracked, as is a portion of the tile counter-top; and at least one of the kitchen drawers has an ill-functioning guide. The bathroom sports a bathtub that is quite small - so much so that I (and I'm only 6'1") couldn't fit to take a traditional bath and instead had to shower only.

Outside - the backyard deck substructure is not adequately supported and has flooring that is visibly bowed (we learned during our visit that the deck covers the septic tank system, as a sewer service person interrupted our day to do some sort of work), and the Adirondack chairs are quite wobbly and should be replaced.

It was quite hot during our visit and while the A/C unit in the master bedroom was effective, it did little to cool our friends who were using the guest room just down the hall. Fans that were provided helped a bit.

All in all the setting is quite lovely, but the house itself needs some attention. I won't be adding this home to my list of recommended rentals that I share with friends.

Owner's Response: Of the 5 VRBO homes I have over the past 4 years, all have received 100% 5 star ratings including this home which earned 5 starrs form the past ten visitors until this reviewer. The guests were allowed to bring 2 dogs which left pet hairs everywhere including sofas and we never complained and cleaned behind them. A great weekly rate was offered and much lower than the Santa Fe average priced home. We did find two wood plans ob the deck warped and had them replaced immediately. I am sure the other homes this guest stayed did not offer the same low price and accommodations. Our first 3 star rating ever in 4 years as we have always earned 5 stars.. Guess you can't please this visitor at the great weekly rate negotiated. Thanks for the commentary and hope the other guests consider that 10 of the other 11 ratings were all 5 stars and with a great price till this one.. This guest left the home in not so great shape and we still refunded their deposit in full in good faith. $142 a night for 4 adults and 2 pets in Santa Fe high season? We hope others view the other ten 5 star ratings as this is a beautiful home with a/c offered for the home with fans to cool the rest of the home. We could have assisted and shown this guest how to cool the home had they asked. Never heard a peep from them till after they checked out and left hits review.
