Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Santa Fe - Skyhouse

A Gem in the Sky! Views your surroundings for more than 100 miles!

Indulge in our luxuriously comfortable high-desert get-away! Lots of privacy, light & very spacious rooms make it ideal for families, retreats, or romantic getaways. Out of town, but only 10 minutes from downtown Santa Fe!

DURING THANKSGIVING AND NEW YEAR'S EVE THERE IS A 3-DAY MINIMUM STAY!

THE HOUSE

Our spacious 2,100 sqft. Skyhouse sits on its own hilltop on 6 pristine acres overlooking the high-desert landscape of Santa Fe. It is accessed from a dead-end road, with lots of space and privacy, yet only 10 minutes from downtown Santa Fe. Defined by windows in all directions, the light and views by day and night will take your breath away! The house has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and lots of space for families, retreats or a romantic get-away and sleeps 6 guests comfortably. The master bedroom has a king size bed and two twin beds. The guest bedroom has a queen size bed and a twin bed. Ideal for two couples especially because the two bedrooms are separated by the very large living room. Luxurious yet very comfortable! Sophisticated but not fussy! The expansive views from inside the house and from our 21 by 16 ft. deck are unbelievable! It's a gem in the sky!

HOW TO GET THERE

Our drive way is a bit steep for those who are used to driving only in metropolitan paved areas, but is not a problem. It is 80 ft. long and well maintained. It is common in the hills surrounding Santa Fe - to reach the top you have to go up! Take it with momentum, stay in low gear and don't stop until you reach the top. We recommend vehicles with all-wheel or front-wheel drive, but size does not matter. WE DON'T RECOMMEND MINI-VANS UNLESS the driver is used to driving it uphill in mountainous terrain! New Mexico is high-desert terrain!

Santa Fe sits 7,000 feet up in the southernmost Rocky Mountains.

During the WINTER MONTHS when there is SNOW ON THE GROUND four wheel drive and winter tires are a must, or one can park on the bottom of the driveway and walk up to the house. We have a snow clearing crew in place to clear the driveway.

Most of the time, even if there is a big snow storm, the snow will melt off within 24 hours once the sun comes out.

THE AREA

Seton Village/Sunlit Hills, is slightly rural and the views are very expansive; the house is 2,100 sqft. and sits on its own hill on 6 acres in one of the most desirable neighborhoods of Santa Fe, with a 10-minute drive to town.

Parking is available on top at the house for up to four cars. Our 21 by 16 ft. deck allows you to take in unimaginable vistas!

HOUSE RULES

We know our guests will bring charm and grace to our home and would not do anything that a sophisticated adult shouldn't be doing!

No smoking.

About Claudia Zorn

Santa Fe offers an extraordinary lifestyle filled with both culture and natural beauty. My husband and I have each been involved in contemporary art galleries in Santa Fe, New York and San Francisco. I am from Austria, and my husband was raised in California and France. We are passionate about exploring new countries, and we especially love introducing other travelers to Santa Fe, one of the most unique places in the world.

Beyond travel, our life is filled with our two children, two dogs, hiking, interior design, fine wine, opera, jazz, and classic films.

Amazing place to stay!

The house was beautiful, clean and easy to find. Claudia was great, made sure every need was met and helped us to have an awesome visit to Santa Fe! The views were amazing and even better in person! Close to the plaza and other attractions. Will definitely return!

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

We were a little worried when we left the airport & headed to Skyhouse. We wondered if the house would look like it did on the internet. Needless to say.... we were pleasantly surprised. The house was even more beautiful in person! The view is fabulous & the house is adorable. We recommend Skyhouse anyone visiting Santa Fe.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

The views were awesome! It was chilly during our stay so we didn't get to spend any time on the deck but it would've been so nice. The house itself was very clean, nicely furnished, and large. The driveway was a little tricky due to the steepness, but definitely worth it once you got to the top. Located on the edge of Santa Fe making it easy to get to Albuquerque and the Plaza. Would definitely stay here again.

Sky House was a great little place to stay. The desk was the favorite spot,making to the side lounge chairs was worth the sunrise view!

Loved all the smell good soaps. Will be back.

You can see for miles and miles...

  • 4 of 5

We thorough enjoyed our stay at Hilltop Skyhouse! The view is simply breathtaking. From the house deck you have a 270 degree view of some of the most breath-taking views of Santa Fe and the surrounding mountains. At night, you'll see stars upon stars as well as Albuquerque lights more than 60 miles away. The interior of the house has a french farmhouse look and feel. Both bedrooms are very spacious. The overall look and feel of the house is very comfortable.

The house is equipped with wifi and TV using Roku. We did not really get a chance to use either while on the trip so there's no feedback as to how good the picture quality or streaming shows works from this location. Internet service is very slow (maybe 2-3 Mbs) but is fine for just reading or catching up with social media. We spent a lot of time out on the deck at night, so there was no time to really watch a lot of streaming media.

Beds are very comfortable and the living room is spacious and very well decorated. From the couch, with the windows shades open, you can see much of the same view offered from the deck. The kitchen is equally spacious with plenty of room for more that 1 person to work on food preparation.

We would have given 5 stars to the great house, but a few things that took away from a perfect score was there there are very few utensils to support cooking at home. The owner really needs to add more pots, pans, baking pans, etc, etc. Not having the basic cooking utensils made cooking at home a bit difficult. Adding more basic cooking seasonings would be helpful too.

The stove/oven is an older, 20+ year old model. The thermostat is not accurate and baking bread/popovers was not a success. Note there is no grill at the house, so if you do steaks like we did, you will have to broil them in the stove. The kitchen was the only disappointment, but the overall HomeAway experience of this home was fantastic.

Note that if you eat out, definitely checkout Harry's Roadhouse. Don't be fooled by the name, the place specializes in organically grown, locally sourced food. Vegetarian items are on every menu.

One last note. Claudia, the property manager, was exceptionally helpful. She met us at the house and showed us around and really made us feel welcomed. She spent over an hour on the phone with the internet provider to get our router working before she left. Thank you Claudia!

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with wonderful views. Plenty of room for five adults. Feels like you're getting away from everything, while still being only minutes to the plaza.

Since many guests come from metropolitan areas: There is a steep but well-maintained 100 ft. long driveway. Take it with momentum and don't stop until you reach the top! Front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive cars recommended, but size does not matter. Large mini-vans only with experienced drivers. When there is snow on the ground, four-wheel drive a must, and good tires are always recommended!
