About Tom Dadian

I have been involved in real estate all of my life and enjoy it immensely when I find a property that is just too good to pass up. This is that property

Tom Dadian purchased this house in 2014

Why Tom Dadian chose New Mexico

The Spanish Conquistadors came to this area in 1680. This property and that of the whole valley where the land is situated was 'Land Granted' to one Conquistador; the direct descendant of the lady who designed and built this house, Evelyn Espinoza Varela. The land was given to Evelyn by her Grandfather a decedent of the Conquistadors who came here in 1680. Evelyn spent many weeks coming to her land, contemplating the design, making sure it correctly represented her roots. Finally in 2001 she set forth to build her dream house, an authentic Southwestern design. Evelyn, accomplished her goal and then some.

That is one of the reasons why we like this southwestern abode, you can feel the presence.

Yet, it is modern, another plus for those of us who have been spoiled with all the conveniences.

What makes this house unique

1. Fantastic location right on the Pecos River

2. In this Sangria De Christie Mountain but with all the amenities

3. Close to the historic city of Santa Fe; 20-25 minutes

4. Cultural activities abound

5. I feel more a tuned to nature out here. The pure blue sky with the puffy clouds, the Pecos River with the sound of the water rushing over the rocks; how peaceful that sound is.

6. The people living n this village are peaceful fun loving individuals that have a respect for the wonderful nature around them.

7. Driving up highway 63 to the end of the road leads you past magnificent camp grounds that offer horse back riding in over 200,000 acres, hiking trails of all levels, fishing, hunting, trapping, etc,

8. Skiing of all types is just a short distance away.

9. I could go on but suffice it to say that there is something for everyone in this glorious country

Magical 3 weeks in this slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five(kids aged 9, 6 and 3) spent the most wonderful three weeks staying at Tom's place. The warm cozy house is very well maintained, nicely decorated and stocked with everything you need. We have stayed at many houses during our sabbatical and always appreciate when the owner make a special effort for their guests. Tom's place is on top of our list, truly a home away from home!

It's situated in the quiet Pecos village, a 25 minute/scenic drive from Santa Fe. We loved going to town for the museums and some of the best Mexican/southwestern food ever(don't miss The Pantry.) We equally enjoyed just chilling at home. The house is surrounded in lush greenery with Pecos river running through the backyard. We enjoyed many hours sitting by the river deck, watching the kids play. We had a lovely BBQ by the river and a bonfire on a cool night star gazing.

There are many trails nearby. We enjoyed the hikes in Pecos and Santa Fe national forest and a couple of fishing/picnics by the Monastery Lake. We also visited the Bandelier(the kids' favorite) and tent rocks national monuments, both within 1 hour drive. Lots of wildlife when you are out there, birds, squirrels and deers. We even had a close encounter with a rattlesnake which was incredible.

We had an amazing time at Pecos and everyone agreed it has been one of the highlights traveling in the US so far. If you are planning a trip to New Mexico, this is the perfect destination.

Thanks again for everything, Tom!

Wonderful stay in immaculate Pecos River, New Mexico property right on the river.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property in Pecos, New Mexico. The cabin was immaculate, beds very comfortable and the grounds were beautiful-wonderful deck right on the river. I've been coming to the Pecos River area since the mid-1960's and this was the best cabin we've stayed in. We've never stayed in a cleaner VRBO unit, and we've stayed in many over the years.

While in Pecos, we fished Monastery Lake (only ~ one mile up the highway), fly fished the Pecos River from Pecos to Cowles and the Moro River, visited Santa Fe, hiked and just relaxed.

We certainly will be back. I just wish this property was large enough to take family and grandkids to this beautiful area. However, we will probably take them anyway, rent this property and rent another property for the rest of the family.

The owner, Tom Dadian, was very kind and most helpful. If you simply need a 2-bedroom facility in the Pecos area, you cannot make a better choice than this property.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this area of NM quite a few times but never have stayed in Pecos. It was a pleasure to stay in this lovely Adobe home. It could be featured in a magazine! We enjoyed the sun room and being so close to the river. Santa Fe is only about 30 minutes away. We wouldn't hesitate to rent this property again.

Excellent Experience, Found all as advertised and caught fish.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property on the Pecos River. The property on the edge of Pecos proper is close to Santa Fe. The property is as advertised with River shoreline access. While there I was able to catch native trout while fly fishing in-spite of slightly higher water flow. I am confident that Salmon Eggs would be very productive but I prefer to catch and release since bait fishing usually kills the fish. I was not in the mood to filet fish and cook dinner with the good New Mexican Food Restaurants in Pecos. The excellently equipped and decorated adobe home has available heat and air conditioning which we found more than adequate. This was our first time in an adobe structure and we were amazed how quiet they are in spite of weather. A neighbor's friendly dog came to investigate to make sure we were supposed to be there but he was not a problem. Security on the property was excellent with alarms and motion detector lighting on the exterior of the property. The owner has done a good job of maintaining the structures and landscaping the property. He is very available, via phone or email and answers any questions immediately. I found him very open to any suggestions or questions. Access to the river is down a fairly steep decline from the home but the drive is paved going down a short distance to the long yard and then to the river and deck the owner has built at the river area. That can all be seen on the pictures provided by the owner. We were able to enjoy sitting around our campfires, morning and evening.. Mosquito's were non existent which was a welcome surprise, especially when we were sitting by the river. Overall a 5 Star operation...

Even better the 2nd time around!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 2nd summer to stay in this beautiful rental. What a treat!

Everything you need is in this house AND something new this year... Air conditioning!! I didn't need it but it's nice knowing that if I did, it was there.

I absolutely love spending the day in Santa Fe shopping and walking through galleries then an easy 20 minute drive has me away from the traffic and people and sitting by the beautiful Pecos River.

Tom's home is very comfortable!

The area really is very interesting and so beautiful AND there is a restaurant called Frankie's in Pecos that has a wonderful breakfast.

I highly recommend this rental and you will not find a nicer, more accomadating property owner. Tom genuinely loves sharing his beautiful home!

Peaceful, relaxing retreat on the Pecos

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently had a lovely three day stay at Tom's house in Pecos, NM.

The house was well furnished with everything we needed . We especially enjoyed our time spent on the deck next to the Pecos River.

We even caught a few trout while there.

The homeowner, Tom, was most helpful and promptly responded to our needs.

The fact that the house had no air conditioning was not an issue .

Close proximity to Santa Fe was a plus.

I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a clean, well appointed, relaxing


The only negative for me was the lack of cell service. While the internet service was good, my carrier(ATT) did not function at the house.

Overall, it was a relaxing and fun few days.

A nice respite from the Texas heat.!

Owner's Response: Sally thank you for your great review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at our home on the Pecos River. FYI, I just installed Air Conditioning so if you decide to return during a heat wave, you will have air. Sorry ATT did not work out in our area. However you should have been able to make calls through the WiFi network, that is what I use when I am there. I believe that ATT has restrictions on using WiFi when you are away from your home WiFi network. I will look into this.
