Best Vacation Home We've Rented

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed at the house with my parents during a recent trip to Santa Fe. We were so impressed with the house that we didn't want to leave. The home is located in a beautiful setting in the hills above town, but it's just a short drive (15 mins) to the main plaza. The home is in immaculate condition and has been furnished with so many interesting items that fit the style of the home and the atmosphere. My dad remarked that he enjoyed simply walking around the home and looking at the various pieces of furniture and decor. The home was also very well laid-out for multi-generational families. It was all on one floor, which was perfect for my dad and our toddler, and it's very spacious. There was plenty of outdoor space including a beautiful patio with a dining table, outdoor seating and a grill. Two separate wings of the house allow for privacy, and the four bedrooms permit a variety of sleeping options.

During our stay we were joined for dinner by two additional family members, making for a party of nine. The spacious kitchen/dining/living room areas were great for entertaining a bigger group. Most vacation rentals lack certain items in the kitchen or have a hodge podge of mismatching dishware and cutlery. Not so here, where they had a boxed steak knife set, beautiful cheeseboards, cloth napkins. It really feels like someone's well-appointed home.

Jesse was extremely responsive and professional. She provided very helpful information about the layout of the home, as well as local attractions, restaurants and shopping. We needed to rent a crib, and she was able to provide information for a company that provides this service. The house also had many brochures and travel books that we used to help plan activities during our stay. Many thanks!

Great Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Santa Fe for a 30th Birthday Girl's Trip, and this house was perfect. The kitchen area is large, with plenty of area for socializing. The porch is fantastic with wonderful views. Bedrooms are comfortable, especially the master with a large bathroom and shower area. All the appliances you would need. Jesse provides tons of helpful information for the area, and was wonderful to work with. I HIGHLY recommend this home for anyone traveling with friends and/or family!!

Owner's Response: Donn and Beth, I totally enjoyed having you at Casa del Oso. I hope this stay for two weeks allowed you to see into the move you want to make to live in Santa Fe. Thank you for all the kindness you showed. Given damage to your area in California, your gracious manner was an inspiration to me. I wish you the best on your road to a new home in Santa Fe. Jess

Owner's Response: We have a brand new refrigerator, microwave, a new toaster, and stove is top of the line commercial gas range that was just serviced. There are two coffee pots, a good blender and everything you need for a wonderful stay. These guests texted to say the house was lovely and they needed nothing. Come see for yourself, and if you need something, please let me know right away!

Relaxation at its finest!

What a beautiful home this is! We had my sisters 50th birthday girls week celebration in Santa Fe, and this home was perfect for us! We loved the beautifully displayed items throughout, and the kiva fireplace was perfect for our end-of-the -busy-day unwinding! Thank you Jesse for the opportunity to stay in this magnificent home! We would love to return someday!!
