About Diane Bylund owner /reservations. Blake and Mitty on site managers/ concierge

We operated a vacation rental in St. Helena, Napa Valley for 30 years that was sold in 2014 when we purchased this retreat home in Santa Fe . We are so excited about sharing this spectacular place. Our son Blake manages the property with his partner Mitty, They both live onsite in a detached home on the property

Diane Bylund owner /reservations. Blake and Mitty on site managers/ concierge purchased this chateau / country house in 2014

Why Diane Bylund owner /reservations. Blake and Mitty on site managers/ concierge chose Santa Fe

6700 square feet of indoor space as well as a comparable number of outdoor spaces including outdoor dining for large groups make this property uniquely suited for parties of ten or more.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Ten minutes from downtown Santa Fe...we find the location to be perfect as it is closer to the Santa Fe Opera, world class golf , the Las campanas club house, Marty Sanchez get more of a rural setting which allows for marvelous star gazing at night .

Guestbook comments from the owner

Simply the best rental in Santa Fe. The property is tucked away with no neighbors in sight; only mountain and desert views in every direction. Such a perfect and serine retreat complete with extra large entertaining and dining spaces, indoor hot tub with fireplace, dry sauna, and the best memory-foam mattresses we've ever slept on!! Very well furnished and very Southwestern chic. We'd love to return in the spring or fall to enjoy the extra large outdoor space with pool, dining and creeping wisteria bushes covering the pergola. The host lives next door and is extremely helpful and accommodating; completely accessible but also not visible if not needed. Perfect size for 4 couples plus 2-4 single friends as it would comfortably sleep 10-12. Thx again Santa Fe!!

Spacious, well equipped/appointed home with wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

I don't normally write reviews but felt I should in this instance. From coordination well before our arrival, to the day of our departure, our hosts were second to none. We spent the Christmas holiday at the property and had asked Blake and Mitty to help us with a Christmas tree for our kids.....they were not only very accommodating and coordinated buying one for us, but decorated the tree sparing nothing. They went out of their way to also decorate the interior of the home for the holidays which made our group feel very much like we were at home, and not afar. We rent many homes along the way in our family travels, and I know my family was tired of me saying it during our stay, but they literally had every tool needed to comfortably live in their home during our stay. Silly simple things like irons make a difference, and they did not scrimp as they had a Rowenta iron for their guests. Anyway, love the town, love the location (very close to downtown), loved the home and thoroughly enjoyed the hosts and their want to make us comfortable. I highly recommend this property to those who are looking for a very nice, spacious place to enjoy their visit to Santa Fe.

Nice property for large family gathering

  • 4 of 5

We were eight ages 8 to 75 celebrating a milestone birthday. Great property that accommodated our family. Beautifully appointed. Comfortable beds. Great kitchen and outdoor eating spaces. Blake was very helpful. We enjoyed our stay. Beware-the water pressure is very bad. We were unable to use two water sources at once. Hope the owners can address this very annoying problem.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you and your party enjoyed staying in our house. As far as the water pressure issue goes, As soon as you let me know about it I went over to investigate and discovered that you had accidentally left a hose running full blast into an outdoor drain for countless hours. This is the reason why you and all of us staying on this property including myself had limited water pressure. But just to be safe I did investigate the wells (we actually have two) changed the filters and everything seems to be running perfectly now. We have never had this complaint before but we will monitor the situation closely. The fact is that for all of us here in the high desert, water is a precious resource that we must care for and use responsibly.

The house and owners were great. There was few things that was not working such as the sauna, dish washer and fire pit developed a gas leak. The biggest problem was the neighbor, evidently you need to be in bed by 10:00 PM to keep her happy!

Outstanding Resort Property

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Blake and Mitty for an outstanding week at your beautiful resort like property. Having booked several activities in the area, ahead of our stay, I fully expected to add to our itinerary once we'd settled in. However, on seeing the property in the flesh, we all decided that what we needed was to stay put and enjoy all the amenities this home has to offer. It really is lovely.

I would highly recommend this property and would book it again.

Incredible property

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this property in Santa Fe. The house isn't just beautiful, it's also appointed with great little touches like fluffy robes and plenty of firewood and starters.

Sadly the weather wasn't great during our time in Santa Fe, but the house was so comfortable that we happily made a fire (or two), played games and roasted marshmallows.

The location was close enough to everything we wanted to do and also some great grocery stores and carryout restaurants so that we could eat at home in the gracious dining area.
