About Chris Kolker

My wife and I worked with a seasoned Santa Fe architect to design this spacious house. Much thought went into each detail. The quality of workmanship is superb.

Chris Kolker purchased this house in 1999

Why Chris Kolker chose Roswell

The layout of this house was designed with a large family in mind (ours). The kids bedroom wing has four bedrooms, each with it's own full bathroom. Between the bathrooms is a shared laundry room. The living area is VERY spacious and open for entertaining many guests. The kitchen has a Sub Zero refrigerator with walnut paneled doors, two dishwashers, trash compactor and ice maker. The kitchen is completely open to the living and dining areas. The 1800 square foot basement is an awesome recreation room which includes a kitchenette with a full size freezer.

What makes this house unique

While this house gives you great privacy and a feeling of being remote, it is only minutes from town.

A great base camp for different adventures.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from our stay over Spring Break. We brought 2 trailers of ATV's & Side by sides to ride at the state OHV areas, as well as take our kids to the snow. This home provided a secure place to park our toys, as well as a great place to spend a day off. We were able to spend a day at a off road park, and leave our toys at the house the next day while we went to the snow.

The open kitchen was a nice place to sit around the bar top while cooking. We spent most of our evenings sitting around there, and the mornings having coffee. The spaced out floor plan of the house was nice. It gave our little ones a chance to play with their toys and have breakfast without waking everyone up. We would recommend staying here when in Roswell. I have never stayed in Roswell before, and this house is the reason we chose Roswell as a base camp for Spring Break.

Roswell is a bit of a drive from ski areas, and state off road areas. So be prepared for a 1:30 drive from the house to each place. We liked being out on the edge of town, quiet, and secure. To see off road parks go to .rider planet. That is where we go to find parks where we are staying.

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing, everything you could possibly need. Very roomy bathrooms and laundry available for every room, Media room was great to watch the superbowl, game room downstairs was very fun. A couple issues at the beginning but the owners son (forget his name) was very accommodating and fixed or explained everything for us..Only thing that would have made it better was if the pool was heated, other than that a fantastic stay

Owner's Response: Robert and his group were great to have as guests. I would definitely recommend them to other hosts. Regarding the pool, it is winterized for a short period during the colder months.

Place is great! Lots of rooom, beautiful setting away from other people yet only ten minutes from town. Well maintained, and Chris was very gracious when I called him with questions - and always picked up! Ten adults and four kids were very comfortable there! Can't say enough good things about it!

Nice but needs tlc

  • 3 of 5

We didn't have air conditioning three out of the five days in the master bedroom, the main room and one upstairs bedroom that the kids couldn't even sleep in, it was too hot! We weren't offered any compensation and at $600 a night everything should be working! The house was very spacious and the kids loved the pool. Chris was very cordial and polite when we spoke to him but things just didn't get fixed!

Owner's Response: Shannon and her group were great to have as guests. Unfortunately there was an issue with 2 of the 5 air conditioners in the home, but not for 3 days. I had informed Shannon prior to their arrival that I would be at a camp for foster kids during the first few days of their stay and would only have access to my phone at limited times during those days. On the first day of their stay they tried to contact me over the vrbo site about the AC. I called the number that they had listed on vrbo twice during that day and left messages, but never had a return call or text so I assumed it was just a thermostat setting issue and that they must have resolved it. The next day I saw that they had messaged that they still had an issue. I finally found out that they had tried to contact my daughter from a different number and so I called that number and attempted to step them through settings on the thermostat and determined that the issue would require a technician. I called a tech and they were able to come out that evening and repair the AC in the master bedroom and said he'd return the following day to fix the final unit. The tech did not come the next day as he had promised. By that time I had come back from camp and went out and reset the unit myself and it started working. However, the next morning they called and it was not working once again so I had a tech come out and he replaced a capacitor and all units were up and running. Every time I spoke with them they verbalized to me that, with the fans running, things were acceptable. I have never had a problem with offering compensation in a case where I may have failed to provide something or by my own negligence a guest had problems. In this situation, had they asked for compensation, I would have been willing to work with them. However, the AC was working the day prior to their arrival and there was no indication of an issue and I've never had an issue with these two units. Additionally, when I was contacted about the issue and again contacted regarding the recurrence of the 2nd unit, I immediately responded and each time they related to me that they were thankful for everything and that the fans were helping in the mean time. I assumed that since 3 other AC units were working, and because they had fans positioned to pull air from the bedroom area where the AC was working, that things were fine since they didn't indicate otherwise. Had they given any indication they wanted compensation I would have given it.
