About Nicolle and Robert

We work hard ... But have no fear we play hard too!

Whenever time allows, we can be found cooking up a fabulous concoction in the kitchen (red wine in hand) & we often share with our guests too;) or we may be out & about walking the rio grande with our 4 (yes! Four), four legged family: tucker, rio, bella and bo ... On many occasions, we visit the plethora of dog friendly restaurant patio's and can often be found on our bikes headed to a new SW Adventure in The Land Of Enchantment.

We absolutely love, love, love living in the south west & hope to share all of it's wonder & beauty with you!

Nicolle and Robert purchased this house in 2009

Why Nicolle and Robert chose Placitas

For some it is the peacefulness, for others the proximity to hiking trails. Most will mention the perfect weather, four distinct seasons without harsh extremes. But almost everyone's answer will include something about the views. Many homes look north toward the hills and mesas, all the way to the Jemez range and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains north of Santa Fe.

Others face the mountain, that smooth yet imposing spine of the Sandias which covers with snow in the winter. Some homes get both views. In another pleasant paradox of Placitas life, these comforting views are always the same, and yet they change constantly thanks to the sun's evolving angles and the seasonal rebirth of high desert flowers and shrubs.

With it's convenient proximity to both the Albuquerque-Rio Rancho metro area and Santa Fe, Placitas is recognized as a unique – and a uniquely situated – bedroom community for these areas.

Placitas bringsThe blessings of clean, fresh air, truly great neighbors, and the presence of the majestic Sandia mountains shielding you from the often intense bustle of Albuquerque. Placitas has created a peaceful setting and provided all the best elements.

While driving through Albuquerque into Placitas, One might marvel at the way their spirit will be transformed upon entering this serene and magical place.

Breath deeply and allow the tranquil beauty of the pinon and juniper studded hills melt away any tension.

It is Natural New Mexico, nothing artificial, contrived or out of place.

Yes, as far as we are concerned, Placitas has it all.

Enjoyed frequent outings to the Jemez Mountains, a spectacular 45-minute drive from Placitas. The dances and feast days at Jemez Pueblo are surreal. Jemez Hot Springs is a natural retreat for restoring body and mind.

What makes this house unique

I Know we have said it ... But The Views are OUTSTANDING and it so peaceful & serene!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house. It was comfortable for our group of five. You thought of everything and the extra's were very much appreciated.



The location was perfect for day trips to Santa Fe,Albuquerque etc.



Very peaceful and relaxing surroundings and well appointed & decorated. The upscale style was great and we felt spoiled.



Nicolle is a great host and went the extra mile to ensure we knew where everything was & how it worked. She provided great tips on restaurants ... We recommend : The Range & The Merc (groceries & deli).



Again,top notch & Beautiful. We wish we could stay longer! we will definitely re-book the next time we come to New Mexico!!!



Thank You & Hook'em Horns

Love this house and management

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this house twice now. Fantastic location to Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and other great places in central New Mexico. House is comfortable, clean and provides all the necessary amenities. Great communications from the manager and the welcome is warm with a local flair. There were 6 adults during our stay and the house provided plenty of community space and areas for privacy. The outdoor seating areas are inviting and cozy. Would not hesitate to stay many more times. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Totally awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

This was truly awesome experience and the most prepared and accommodating house we have stayed in and we've been using VRBO for close to 8 years, 2 - 3 times a year, mainly for business trips and trade shows. This is the one place that I will definitely return to, bring my family and recommend to friends. Great job!

Another Fantastic February!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year we have spent the month of February at Casa de Cielo. The property is very well maintained with attention to detail on culinary requirements, wonderful sleeping and bath linens. Whether you want to hike, shop or explore the culinary scene, it is all here. You can also partake in a fire (inside or outside) or star watching right outside your backdoor. Wonderful, relaxing and inspiring. Truly the Land of Enchantment .

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this home in a quiet Placitas neighborhood. Everything was clean and well organized and the home has spacious common areas and a great kitchen. The location is good for day trips to Albuquerque and Santa Fe. It worked really well for our group of six.

Ask three Placitans what they like best about living in Placitas and you may get six different answers. One will say it is being so far from everything, another, being so close to everything — and both will be right.

For some it is the peacefulness, for others the proximity to hiking trails. Most will mention the perfect weather, four distinct seasons without harsh extremes. But almost everyone's answer will include something about the views. Many homes look north toward the hills and mesas, all the way to the Jemez range and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains north of Santa Fe.

In another pleasant paradox of Placitas life, these comforting views are always the same, and yet they change constantly thanks to the sun's evolving angles and the seasonal rebirth of high desert flowers and shrubs.

Placitas is a gateway to other worlds, accessible and remote at the same time.
