Our vacation property is a wonderful adobe-style home on 12 private acres just south of Santa Fe. For those who want to enjoy both "the city different" and the wonderful high desert country, this home is ideal.

The space
Just off of the Turquoise Trail, a Scenic Byway, the property is close to Galisteo, Cerrillos and the old mining town of Madrid. Just 4 miles away, on the road to town, one can enjoy the best New Mexican breakfasts and lunches at the San Marcos Cafe while watching hens, turkeys and peacocks roam the property.

Our casita is cozy and carefully designed in the traditional local adobe style with hand-plastered interior walls, beautiful viga ceilings, and a wonderful kiva fireplace. The interior photos of the casita were taken by a professional Airbnb photographer, so they are terrific, but we'd like to emphasize our casita is a cozy 700 square feet total. With amazing sunset views of the surrounding Cerrillos Hills, the casita is nestled into the landscape with 360 degrees of complete privacy.

The land is completely natural containing two large sand-lined arroyos (dry creek beds). Tranquility, fresh air, unforgettable sunsets and clear starry nights are everyday treats, and the sound of coyotes howling in the distance make this a precious and unique place.

Climate: cold (20°-40°F) in winter, and as warm as 80°-100°F in summer, but it cools down at night and often there are short thunderstorms in the late afternoon in July and August. The air is very dry and the elevation is approximately 7,000 ft. Spring and fall are ideal seasons to visit. Skiing nearby in winter.

Access: fly into Albuquerque International Airport and rent a car; drive north on highway 25. Or fly into Santa Fe County Municipal Airport. Amtrak stops in nearby Lamy.

The casita sleeps two in the queen bedroom, one in the single bedroom, and two on the double futon in the living room. A picnic table and lounge chairs are outside on the slate patio. A stone fireplace is available for outdoor barbeques, and a pile of firewood can be used outdoors or indoors in the traditional fireplace. A large bathroom has a shower, and a washer and dryer. The kitchen has all appliances. Linens, towels, extra blankets, etc. Satellite telephone, flat screen TV and DVD player, DVDs, satellite internet. Games, puzzles, books and kids' toys are in the small bedroom. Area fans available.

In 25 minutes you can be in downtown Santa Fe. Bandolier and Petroglyph National Monuments, the Santa Fe Opera, and the Pecos, Sangre de Christo, Sandia and Jemez mountains are all nearby. The mountains offer hiking and fishing in summer, and skiing in winter (Ski Santa Fe in the Sangre de Christos; and ski the Sandia Mountains in Albuquerque). Art fairs and the famous Zozobra Festival take place all summer in town. Albuquerque is an hour to the southwest. The longest tram in the world climbs up the Sandia Mountains, which lie east of Albuquerque.

Christmas is special, the town is decorated with lots of candelarias. A unique thing to do is to visit a nearby pueblo when they are having a feast or celebration day. There will be dancing, arts, food and other traditional Native American culture to be enjoyed.

Guest access
Everything the house has to offer, our own 12 acres as well as walking or hiking in the neighborhood and adjacent properties. Our land encompasses two arroyos which are great for a walk.

Other things to note
The photos of the interior of the casita were taken by a professional Airbnb photographer, so they are wonderful, but we'd like to emphasize our casita is a cozy 700 square feet total. Cell service can be good or bad depending on your provider, but the house has HughesNet wifi and telephone service for local and international calls.

Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States

It's very secluded yet accessible to both Santa Fe and Albuquerque. Beautiful New Mexico high desert scenery, with amazing sunsets and views of surrounding mountain ranges. Sunsets are visible beyond the nearby Ortiz Mountains. Built low in the landscape, it feels like no one else is around. All adjacent properties are at least 12 acres so there are neighbors, but lots of space in between. The Lone Butte grocery store and gas station is a few miles away on Hwy 14, as is the San Marcos Cafe for all of your breakfast, lunch, hardware and feed store needs!

George and I lived in Los Angeles for 20+ years. We now live in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. We have two children, ages 16 and 26. We enjoy sharing our homes with visitors to the wonderful cities of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Hosting people from all over the world enriches our own experience. We always provide attention that is both professional and personal. Our home in San Miguel is a spacious, traditional Mexican-style casa, with a large veranda and yard, and an adjacent casita. Our traditional Santa Fe-style adobe casita is located on 13 acres of high desert, 30 minutes southeast of Santa Fe.
