Located about 10 miles from the city of Santa Fe, we're less than half an hour to the Pecos River and about an hour to the Jemez Mountains. The Albuquerque Airport is 70 miles, or about an hour's drive. There are grocery/restaurants/post office about a mile away: we recommend that you have your own transportation We have sunset views of the Jemez Mountains and south Santa Fe. Our home is a large adobe built around a center courtyard, very light with many windows and skylights. It is a very peaceful place, with wonderful places to relax...or work remotely. There is cable TV and internet access, a fairly large open kitchen, a jetted tub and lots of books to read. ---- We have two dogs who need care and exercise while we are gone. Both are shelter dogs (maybe Australian cattle dogs? One part Corgi? One part collie?) who share the house and fenced courtyard with us. The younger dog is 10 years old; the 12-year old dog (somewhat shy around strangers) is slowing down but full of perk. We prefer not to leave them alone for longer than 5-6 hours. ---- We are at about 7000 ft elevation, in the hills, surrounded by pinon and juniper trees and native plants, and lots of open sky, expansive views in the day, dark skies and stars at night! ---- April in northern New Mexico is a good time for visiting art/studio galleries, for enjoying our museums and parks and great restaurants, for touring the city of Santa Fe when it is not full of tourists, and for hiking the nearby trails. ---- Good neighbors are available to help or answer questions, and we'll be reachable while we're gone. ---- We do ask that you arrive a day or so before we leave so that we have time to show you around: if you need to arrive a bit early or want to leave a bit later (check with us on the time frame), we invite you to stay with us -- this may give you free days to go out and explore the area -- please let us know what works for you Also, we prefer non-smokers and you will need your own car.
