About the property

Comfortable, contemporary Santa Fe style in a quiet compound six blocks from the Historical Plaza and two blocks from the highway that goes up into the mountains with hiking and skiing. This home is one of five “condos” with a common courtyard, but physically it is a detached, two story house, set back from the street in a quiet neighborhood. Main, upper level includes bedroom (one queen), full bathroom, kitchen and dining area. There is private front patio and a small balcony off the back. Lower level includes larger bedroom (one queen), larger bathroom and laundry. The lower level has a back door to the outside and a parking space right outside. There is a second parking space in front plus plenty of street parking for guests. The home is beautifully designed with wood floors, vigas, and wooden window blinds. The kitchen includes granite counters, SS appliances and gas stove.

About Michael McDiarmid

I am recently retired from working as an engineer. I have lived and worked 26 years in Santa Fe. My daughter and I called this property home for 3 years. We love this location! Now she has graduated HS and moved away. I have moved not very far away, and I am able to offer my Santa Fe home for rent.

Michael McDiarmid purchased this house in 2012

Why Michael McDiarmid chose North Hills

I primarily chose this property because it is walking distance to the plaza, even closer restaurants, and also the recreation center across the street, Also this location is quiet and on the way to the mountains. The house is ony ten years old now, very comfortable and easy to maintain.

What makes this house unique

The two story arrangement provides particularly good privacy separation; especially with the separate, downstairs back door. High ceiling living/dining area with large east windows provide some spaciousness.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and comfortable home in a great location in Santa Fe. Michael is a pleasure to deal with and a genuinely nice person. Wish I could rent this home every year!

Great place--we're staying an additional three months!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Michael's condo while in Santa Fe on a travel nurse assignment. The condo is wonderful--very comfortable, nice wood floors, high ceilings, FULLY furnished for living (we hardly packed more than the clothes we needed for 3 months). The second bedroom is downstairs, along with the second bathroom. While we are only 2 people, the condo is still plenty comfortable for a larger party.

The historic plaza is just a 15 minute walk away, through safe neighborhoods. It is however, an aerobic walk back (or a $5 Uber ride if you've had 2 margaritas from the Shed)! We also got a 3 month membership to the nearby gym (Fort Marcy sports complex) which has basketball courts, classes, weight room, pool and is a short 5 min walk away.

Michael is a wonderful VRBO owner! He met us at the front door when we first arrived for introductions and to show us around. He let us know right off the bat not to hesitate to call or text if we needed anything. He is a great communicator and always available when needed. For example, the wifi router went out one afternoon. Michael promptly got in touch with the company and the resolution was to buy a new router. Michael was apologetic to us for the inconvenience and we had a new router that same day.

We have enjoyed both Santa Fe and this condo so much we have decided to stay an additional three months. Now we will enjoy morning coffee on the back balcony and dinner on the front porch in the lovely spring months! I certainly recommend this rental to anyone wanting to feel right at home in a vacation rental.

Nice house close to the Plaza in Santa Fe

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this house for 5 weeks while we were moving to Santa Fe. The house is comfortable and convenient to the center of the city with it's' many galleries, museums and restaurants. It would be an easy 10 minute walk to the plaza but an uphill climb back home. However parking is fairly easy in Santa Fe so no problem. Grocery stores and markets are nearby and it provides a good base for visiting such a wonderful place.
