Fantastic host and property

  • 5 of 5

Great get away...quiet, clean, everything you need but close enough for convenient groceries or trip to town. Robust WiFi, comfy and well supplied. Would go again...don't miss this one.

Authentic, charming, comfortable home in the Santa Fe hills 💗

  • 5 of 5

Though I was only to stay for 48 short hours in this amazing abode I look forward to one day returning to its charms. Beautifully decorated, modern comfort in an old world charm. The property is off the beaten path and though the unit is shared (duplex) I never heard the neighboring property. (It was occupied!) Other than the shared driveway it is as private as anyone could dream with an outdoor space that matches the interior in comfort and charm. Our host, Francis left behind many valuable resources to ensure a fun visit and was always easy to reach and quick to respond to my questions. Santa Fe was AMAZING and just a short drive. I can’t wait to come back one day to explore; and Casa de Vaca will be my first choice for lodging.

Little gem in the hills

  • 5 of 5

Just what you would imagine in the hills of Sante Fe. The decor was so nice and homey. It was a 25 minute drive to Sante Fe so very convenient. I would definitely stay again.

Lovely and peaceful property outside the hustle and bustle of Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

Great place to relax and enjoy nature and be close by to everything Santa Fe offers! Francis is extremely responsive, and has equipped the property with anything you would need to be comfortable and feel right at home. He offers guests a beautiful place to retreat with privacy and abundance of nature all around the property.

very nice stay

  • 4 of 5

We visited with my two dogs. I was very nervous about this knowing that there wasn't a fenced in yard for my dogs to run around. I was reassured that the property was on 10 acres, but when we arrived we saw that this was not flat open useable land and the house was actually divided into two properties. The other property was also being rented by people with a dog. My dogs have a lot of energy and are not the biggest fans of other dogs, so the situation was even more difficult than I expected. Still, the house was very nice and the beds were very comfortable. We had a very nice stay even though it really didn't work well for my dogs.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind comments about enjoying the home. I wish you had called me about your request for where the dogs and you could hike as there are so many places to hike and trails for the dogs down the 10 mile stretch of Ojo de La VAca where the home is located. All of our previous guests have had great experiences with their dog walks on the grounds and nearby. Next time, please call and ask as your stay could have added more hiking experiences for the dogs. Again happy to hear you enjoyed the home and come back and see us.

Just Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped out of the car to the fresh, pine scent, this home was wonderful. For our trip to Santa Fe, we wanted to be in town at various places & meals, but we also wanted a place to read, relax, enjoy the mountains & fresh air, so this was the perfect place for us to stay. We could spend 2-4 hours in Santa Fe, & have an afternoon of quiet relaxation, and still go back for dinner if we chose. The house lacked nothing and had wonderful light, SW furnishings, and a wonderful sunroom for napping or reading. The hardest part was deciding where to spend time since there were so many places inside and out that welcomed you to sit awhile. One might wonder about the last "leg" of the trip, but that narrow dirt road ended at a fabulous place. The owner was willing to help in any way and seemed available if we would have needed assistance. We had a delightful stay!
