About the property

A Gem in the Sky! Views surround you 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!



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!


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.


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!


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.

Claudia Zorn purchased this house in 2015

Amazing is Right

  • 5 of 5

This place is everything you want in a vacation rental and more. Visited mid February 2017 and the views are truly amazing. The house is very spacious and tastefully decorated. Claudia has really thought of everything. The driveway is steep but with front wheel drive Suv was able to negotiate ok. When it snowed which it did 2 nights we were there, I hooked up the Snow chains to err on the side of caution. But this is the price you pay for the gorgeous views. Would rent this again.

Splendid Digs!

  • 5 of 5

Every need was fulfilled in the mountaintop stay. Wonderful bedrooms, exquisite linens, relaxing furniture throughout the property and deck. The kitchen enabled us to enjoy a relaxing breakfast at our leisure before a hike. In the evenings we made yummy dinners, lingered over our wine glasses in the dining room, and played games, and watched a movie. Thank you, Claudia, for sharing your delightful home with us, the wine and chocolate crisps, your kind welcome & accommodating our arrival. Beyond our expectations👍𣐼􏏼👍𣐼􏏼👍𣐼􏏼👍𣐼􏏼👍𣐼􏏼

Spacious with tremendous views

  • 5 of 5

The whole family came together to celebrate my husband's "big" birthday at the sky house. The house is quite spacious, fully furnished, clean and the views are tremendous. It was easy to find and not too far from the center of Santa Fe. The only thing we found lacking were pot holders and dish towels in the kitchen. But we made do and had a great celebration. Thanks!

Wonderful house with all the perks!

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfectly located right outside of town, easy access to everything. We enjoyed our stay enormously and will hopefully return in the future! The layout was perfect for our two family vacation. We had everything we needed and Claudia is an excellent host. Thank you for making our stay a great one!

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.

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!
