About Jesse White

We are committed to providing top level accommodations in our stunning second home. We feel lucky to have the top-rated home and staff, in a town where you can't always count on managers and service providers to deliver what they advertise. We have forged many good friendships with guests of Casa del Oso, who return year after year to what they call their "Santa Fe Home." We love this home, and the neighborhood couldn't be better. We consider it an honor to provide top level accommodations and service to all our guests. Call Jesse and come see for yourself, why we love Casa del Oso!

Why Jesse White chose Santa Fe

Hand-crafted with rounded arched doorways, kiva fireplaces, many skylights, raised ceilings with exposed vigas, and views of the mountains in all directions! Santa Fe culture is rich with diversity, and the history and people are fascinating. This home gives you the pleasure of 3.5 acres, only ten minutes from town, with mtn views, folk art and unforgettable legacy hospitality. 4 BR, 3BA with Stunning Features, Views, Immaculate

What makes this house unique

Vacationing at Casa del Oso is like owning your own home for relaxation and enjoyment any time of the year. Sunset views are fantastic over the Jemez mountains, and the Sangre de Cristo mountains are visible from the east courtyard. We have a jacuzzi tub, barbecue grill on the patio, and 3,200 square feet of luxury pueblo-style architecture to enjoy. Our furnishings are comfortable and elegant, with Santa Fe style.

Santa Fe at its best!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to have booked Casa Del Oso for a large group of 7 adults. When booking for so many people it can be difficult to make everyone happy, but this home exceeded everyone's expectations.

It was fabulous!!

The setting is peaceful and quiet, gorgeous views, we loved sitting on the patio and watching the sunsets.

The home itself is beautifully decorated with many unique and interesting artifacts.

The kitchen and dining area was our favorite gathering place, we were able to visit, cook, eat, pictures do not do it justice it was huge!

We loved this home. It has a definite authentic southwest feel, a little away from town, but we loved coming home to its serenity, and beautiful views.

Jess the property manager was great to work with, kind and gracious with some of my low tech skills!!!

We hope to come back the next time we are in Santa Fe.

Thank you for everything!

Comfort and Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely perfect for my group of friends and our annual reunion. We took many day trips in all directions to hike, check out the many art galleries, sample the local cuisine and just explore. It was always wonderful to come back to our temporary "home"! The house is very tastefully furnished and the neigborhood is so peaceful and tranquil. I kept waiting to see a coyote out the kitchen window because it seemed as if we were on a prairie! The house is spacious, yet cozy, and has everything in the kitchen we needed to cook. Jesse White is an exceptional property manager. She made sure our check in and check out was smooth and was readily available if we needed to call her. We all loved staying here, couldn't have asked for a better stay. Would love to return and definitely would recommend it to others. Aloha, Arlene

House Delivers It All

  • 5 of 5

This house is as nice as it is described. It's maintenance is up to date and kept up better than all other homes we have rented (>10 homes over the last 5 years). It gives folks their space, allows you to cook and entertain as you wish, has close access to all things on the NW side of Santa Fe, easy highway access, nice area to walk in the neighborhood and has a really good property manager (Jess). Would happily stay here again when we return to the area.

Beautiful home and great set up for families or group trips

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a beautiful setting with a large kitchen and lots of space. We were 2 families, each with 2 kids. So each family had one side of the house and it worked out perfectly. The back patio with table, grill, hammock, and chairs was a wonderful place to relax after sightseeing in Santa Fe, Taos, and Bandelier.

Great home for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

6 members of our family (3 generations) stayed here for 5 days. The home is beautiful and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. The home is very clean. Jesse was very responsive. There is no enough space for everyone to have private space. We could easily get into the center of Santa Fe but were far enough way to have quiet and great views. I highly recommend Tierra Preciosa.

Simply perfect

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic! I chose to celebrate my 50th by bringing my dear friends and family together for a weekend in Santa Fe, and we couldn't have found a better spot for our gathering. We loved the house, inside and out. A setting like this makes everything precious.

Thank you, Jess. I'll be back!!!!

Top Vacation Rental in Santa Fe! There is wonderful hiking from the property in several directions, including a dry riverbed just north of the property, and wonderful roads into the surrounding neighborhoods. This is a fabulous vacation spot, with privacy and also quick access to the Plaza and shopping. Very romantic setting, with luxury and comfort abounding.
