This is a comfortable easy house with southwest charm, lots of windows, two bedrooms, two baths, a large living area and terrific views of mountains and skies. Located in the open community of Eldorado, 13 miles east of Santa Fe. With immediate access to extensive hiking and biking trails, it feels like the country, and it is, but there are also a few restaurants, a very adequate grocery store, a public library, senior center, and gym. A car is required. This is a beautiful time to visit New Mexico. 

We have no pets, just plants, inside and outside, requiring some attention...and birds to watch, feed, water. You might see the occasional coyote, bobcat and rabbits. We are nonsmokers, and require that sitters and friends don't smoke on the property. We don't use strong fragrances and provide scent-free laundry soap. We have no pets and no fence, so do not have facilities for pets. We provide cable TV, Wifi, a washer/dryer. It feels like home. We hope you will feel that way too.

“ New Mexico Paradise ”

Sit Dates Apr-9-24 - May-2-24 Sitter Cadillac, Member Since May-16-19

We’ve had a fantastic time housesitting for Arthur & Nan, who were very gracious and generous as our hosts. Their cozy and spacious, New Mexico adobe style house felt like home the minute we walked in - everything was ready for us, including dinner & wine. The house has all amenities and more (inclusive of detailed manual for housesitters) – it was very easy to take care of and we enjoyed feeding the birds! It is located in a wonderful, large, but quite community about 15 miles from center of Old Town Santa Fe. There are several walking paths available immediately outside the house, as well as a Rail Trail (for walking or biking) that can be taken directly into Santa Fe (if one wanted to do so). The views of the mountains from the back porch are just like from South West paintings, especially at sunset and stargazing is incredible at night (eye opening if you are used to living in a large metropolitan area). The house was our hub for exploring Santa Fe and various nature & culture parks of Northern New Mexico, while providing a comfortable and homey retreat for the off days. Communication with Arthur & Nan was excellent before, during and after our stay (they also provided numerous recommendations for restaurants and places to visit). We also had an opportunity to meet face to face – we certainly feel like we’ve made beautiful new friends!

Arthur & Nan, thank you for EVERYTHING!

- Vlad & Inna
