Karen, Princeton, Mass. “My family recently stayed at this beautiful house.  It is a work of art!  Intricate mosaic work in the bathrooms and kitchen, stained glass doors and intricate woodworking throughout.  All of the modern conveniences you could ask for.   There is a spacious outside patio for dining, waterfall, and flower gardens.  The house is within walking distance to stores, our favorite is the Cafe Dulce, which has superb muffins and other treats.  Very close to the historic Santa Fe Plaza.  My family didn’t want to leave this lovely retreat.

Jenny, Missoula Mt.  “The only reason this is a 5 star is because there isn’t a 6 star!  Add whatever superlatives you can think of and then add more.  It is over the top in delightful artistic beauty.  You have to see it to believe it!  Every time we opened the door to return to this vacation getaway, it was a sigh of sheer relaxing enjoyment.  Could have not been better.  Thanks for the opportunity to experience the Hobbit House in one of our favorite places:  Santa Fe.”

The Hobbit House was definitely the highlight of our stay.  Yes, Santa Fe is beautiful beyond words, and we enjoyed being in this “Land of Enchantment” but this home was not just a nice place to stay, but peaceful, relaxing, and quiet retreat.  It was hard to leave it to even explore Santa Fe.  -Jane

Regie/Honolulu  Hobbit House is everything you could want in a vacation home.  The owners provide not only a magnificent property, but loads of extra touches…the property is conveniently located in a safe and quiet neighborhood with easy access to attractions in every direction…Hummingbirds greeted us for breakfast on the patio and sunsets greeted us at the end of the day…if you are going to Santa Fe, put this home on the top of your list. Oakton, Va.  “Just beautiful…the house is a work of art. Great location, great owner tips, well-stocked would be an understatement.  Outstanding communication.  You cannot go wrong with this one.  Feels very upscale.  You could stare at the tiled shower all day.  A very safe rental, and nobody is fussier than I.”

The Goheens, Tumwater, Wa.   “The Hobbit House was the perfect place for two couples to find rest and serenity for one heavenly week.  Having traveled all over the world, we can say that this is one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed.  It was obviously created with great love and care for the guests who would stay there.  Every single thing you need is there.  The back patio with gardens and waterfall are immaculately kept and show the same attention to design as the interior.  Gorgeous!  It’s a little bit of paradise.  You will love it.”

B.L. Townsend, Wa. The Hobbit House is a journey into the extraordinary. Phenomenal creative attention has been put into every detail — intricate, extensive mosaics in the bathrooms and kitchen backsplash; inlaid woodwork and furniture; astounding murals; and more! Every which way you turn is truly a delight to the eyes and senses. Step into flowering gardens, and fall asleep in ultra-comfortable beds (one king & two queens) to the tiered, spilling waterfall. Enjoy a well-stocked house, and visit Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods, only several blocks away. Or, if you prefer, the organic Body Cafe is even closer. Count on returning to a stunning, tranquil retreat in a quiet neighborhood that goes beyond your wildest expectations. The Hobbit House is an ideal place for reunions, girls’ gatherings, wedding parties, families with teenagers, other small groups, and a romantic get-away. On a scale of 1 (worst) to 10 (best), the Hobbit House is a ’25’ with no exaggeration.

Fazios, Austin, Tx.  “Our stay in Santa Fe could not have been better.  The Hobbit House is truly a well crafted, unique and very ‘cozy’ environment to have spent time with our family.  Thank you for a first class experience, and sharing your space with us.  The girls in our family really appreciated the shampoo, rinse and lotions.  We will look forward to a return in the future.”

The D. family, Arlington Va, Hutchinson, Ks. “This house is so unique in so many ways!  We all felt pampered during our stay.  Built a fire in the fireplace every day.  Loved the proximity to Trader Joe’s…a Christmas to remember.”

Chris Schmiz, St. Louis, Mo. “Your Hobbit House is absolutely amazing. We just can’t believe the  attention to every detail. Truly it’s a work of art. Thank you so much for your graciousness. We love to cook and the kitchen is so well
equipped, we are enjoying every minute and every meal. The waterfall and skylights, the shower mosaics — and the doors! I could go on and on and never say enough about the spirit in this place.”

The H. family, Waco, Tx  “The stay we have had at the Hobbit House has been completely fulfilling.  The exquisite attention to detail is unparalleled.  The artwork and carpentry is an outstanding testament to the free spirit and artistry that defines Santa Fe.  Thank you!

Heidi O, Mansfield, TX. We stayed for five wonderful days at the Hobbit House. The home is a work of art! Our hosts, Terry and Sheila, were wonderful. The home has everything you need for a great family vacation. Spend time admiring the artistry of the home, yard and especially the shower! The home is close to everything you need. Lots of restaurants, great supermarkets and galleries.

The H. family, Waco, TX  Just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to spend four nights in your Hobbit House; our family made some wonderful memories there. We enjoyed all of the amenities that you provided, including those cozy robes! It was definitely first class all the way. We will be talking about the mosaics in the kitchen and bathrooms for years to come as well as the heated floors, stained glass doors, beautiful wood, and murals!…We hope to return to Santa Fe again soon! It was amazing!Carlos, Rosamar M. & sons  “Awesome experience in this gallery!  We had such great discussions on the tile, woodwork & walls. Our family days were great and your home will stay in our memories forever.”
