Adults-only villa in Santa Fe with outdoor pool
What makes this particular home so special and unique?
'Cochiti'- at 23 Mesa Encantado, is the highest, free-standing casita within the Pueblo Encantado development, providing the ultimate in seclusion and tranquility along with magnificent, unobstructed views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains and spectacular New Mexican sunsets/stargazing. This casita is nestled into the foothills and is all on one level with the main patio expanding the entire length of the casita. Both bedrooms are very spacious. The master has a full west-facing window wall, kiva fireplace (with romantic candles to use instead of firewood) and a screened door to the main patio affording gorgeous mountain views. The guest bedroom has french doors (brand new screen doors) that open onto a private patio with it's own seating area and outdoor kiva fireplace. Both bedrooms have new carpet (installed July 2020) and beautiful newly renovated bathrooms complete with travertine shower walls and stone countertops. The living room also has a corner kiva fireplace, wood beams and has floor to ceiling windows with exquisite mountain views from all. There is a beautiful 3 cushion leather sofa, 2 comfy leather chairs and a bench seat by the fireplace. The kitchen is fully appointed, with brand new stone counter tops, floor tile and all new stainless steel appliances (installed as of July 1, 2020) There is also a kitchen bar with 2 bar stools along with a cozy dining room, although the outside dining table is 'the' place to savor any homemade meals! All the unusual furnishings, original southwest art and unique, decorative accessories have all been hand-selected by the owner - who's a designer with a business in the Vail Valley of Colorado. Celebrities such as Robert Redford, Robert Michener, Liz Taylor and Bruce Springstein have stayed at Cochiti numerous times.

The 5 star Four Seasons 'Encantado Spa & Restaurant' is located just across the street (only a 10 minute walk) and offers fine dining, a bar and an array of luxurious spa treatments. Hiking trails are literally right outside your door at Cochiti and you can venture right into the heart of the Santa Fe National Forest. Other activities such as horseback riding, skiing, golf, tennis, rafting, biking, etc. are located nearby. There is also a beautiful outdoor heated pool on the premises (just a short 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive away from the casita) which is open from the end of May to mid October. Note: pool may be subject to NM regulations during the summer of 2020 and the pool is currently not open due to Covid restrictions.

Do keep in mind that although Cochiti is an ultra private retreat, it is conveniently located only 10-15 minutes from Downtown Santa Fe, with it's world class adobe architecture, some of the world's finest shops and restaurants, galleries and museums. And, it is only minutes away from Tesuque Village (with 2 great restaurants and several galleries) and the world famous Santa Fe Opera (when open) the new Tesuque Casino. The famous Tesuque outdoor Flea Market is now located near Buffalo Thunder Casino- just 7 minutes north on Highway 285.

We are happy to tell you about our favorite picks for restaurants, recreation, shopping and gallery strolling.

A Turquoise Stone
I try very hard to pick the most attractive rental with the best location. This time, I not only achieved my goal but we also got a very special treat. We were able to share a home that had a meaningful family history. Mementos of a life well led and a true passion for the Southwest came alive in the hand picked decor and family pictures. Honestly, I really cannot explain what it meant for us to share this oasis in the desert. I can tell you that working with Jan was super easy. She was available to us whenever we texted her or called. The house was clean and nicely stocked with toiletries, laundry needs, and most of all an equipped kitchen. We fully enjoyed our time in this home and hope to return someday. Thank you Rosenthal family for the wonderful memories and for sharing a piece of your family’s life.

Family Spring Break Trip
WOW!! What a great property. Very clean with every amenity needed. The property owner, Jan, has obviously put a lot of thought/effort into making this the perfect home away from home. She was very easy to communicate with, and shared lots of information on places to eat and activities around the area. The views from the patios are spectacular. We enjoyed sitting on front patio in the morning drinking coffee and watching the sunrise. Then walking up the ridge just behind the house to see the most beautiful sunsets each night. Quiet neighborhood and perfect location, just a short 10 minute drive into Santa Fe, but just far enough out that you could see every single star in the sky at night. Thank you Jan for sharing your home with us, truly a special place.
