Charming, spacious casita in the shady, quiet pinyon-juniper woodland at the foot of the Sandia Mountains. A short walk/bike ride to Nat'l Forest trails. Well-equipped kitchen, ample parking, private entrance & covered patio, wood stove, windows & mountain view. Easy drives to Santa Fe (35 min) & Albuquerque (20 min). Reasonable cleaning fee! Pets welcome (see rules). Conserving water is a must! NO SMOKING anywhere on this property! Texting or knocking are best ways to reach us.

The space
The 800-square-foot (74-sq-m) casita is built partially into a hill, which makes it extra quiet and helps to keep it cool in summer and warm in winter. There are lots of trees and birds all around, which frame the views of the Sandia Mountains. There is a queen bed that sleeps two and a futon that sleeps one adult or two small children -- both in the bedroom and cannot be moved. We also have a fold-down twin bed in the living room/kitchen. We have bedding for all of these arrangements. There are two entrances: one with stairs and the other without. In summer the casita is cooled by an evaporative cooler.

Where you’ll be

Placitas, New Mexico, United States

Our home is on a well-maintained graded dirt Forest Service road that ends at Tunnel Springs, where hikers start their trek into the wilderness areas of the Sandia Mountains. You can start your hike right from the casita's front door. And although our location feels remote, we are just short drives from Albuquerque and Santa Fe. There are also ample services of all kinds in Bernalillo, just 5 miles away.

BIG VEHICLES WARNING: The road does not have any easy turnaround areas for vehicles longer than 20 feet. We strongly discourage bringing long vehicles with long trailers here.

My husband and I and our three boys moved to Placitas in 2005. We love that we can walk out the front door and in just minutes be immersed in wilderness. I'm the head of a middle school, and Larry is a science journalist, geologist and amateur astronomer. Our three sons are quiet at night, but some days they can be heard whooping it up on the trampoline or shooting hoops on the driveway. You'll notice a few small boats in our yard because we like to canoe and kayak down the Rio Grande at least once every spring, as well as explore southwest Colorado, camping and paddling around there, when we can get away. We are always happy to share our knowledge of the local restaurants, events, sights and trails.

During your stay

We're in and out quite a bit with our three children, but Larry works from a home office, so he's usually around to offer any help and advice on hiking, sight seeing, and other local attractions.
