Peaceful desert getaway
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Valdez’ home. Had everything we needed plus the added pleasure of watching hummingbirds come and go. It’s very convenient to Española. Carl and Gretchen’s directions and restaurant, etc. were spot-on.
Sheila, thank you for your evaluation. We are always appreciative of our guests taking time to do so. We love hosting, and, in fact, need to because by your using our home for whatever time you do, you are taking care of it in our absence. The neighbors love it, because the house is not vacant, and they know we have dependable guests. Be safe in all your travels, and please consider returning. Sincerely, Carl and Gretchen
Well-stocked, clean home in peaceful location, but a bit too warm for August
The house was extremely clean and very organized. It was better-stocked than any other VRBO property I have rented. There were ample towels and bedding, as well as pantry basics. The kitchen had every appliance and pot or pan we could think of (although no pitcher for water). The area surrounding the house was very peaceful. Its remoteness allowed for wonderful star-gazing on clear nights.
Although the house has thick walls and we followed recommended procedures to shut the windows and blinds during the day and open them in the evening, the house was uncomfortably hot a few days. Without air conditioning, we felt that we had to leave the house everyday in the morning and come back only after dinner time. Although there were hiking opportunities just outside the door, because of the inability to cool down after a hike, we weren't inclined to take advantage of the neighbourhood.
Robyn, thank you for your review. All was quite fair. Weather has been a bit more unpredictable, so therefore, we need to respond to that. This summer has had its unusually hot days, so we will look into the possibilities for making the house more comfortable in the future. Thank you for your visit. Carl and Gretchen Valdez
Beautiful, clean, peaceful
We had a lovely time visiting with friends here! The home and the property are beautiful. The porch is the perfect place to sit, relax and take in the picturesque landscape. The weather wasn’t great while we were there but it didn’t ruin our stay. We really enjoyed spending time on the porch watching the storms roll in over the mountains. We will definitely be back!
Wonderful house and location!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The only “bummer” was that we picked a hot time of the year to be here as their is no AC (which is usually a plus!) The house was perfect in every way and had everything we needed!
There are so many things to do within a short distance from this house! Ojo Caliente is close and Ghost Ranch is pretty close! We would definitely come back and stay here!
Nancy, we appreciate the review and are pleased that, apart from the heat, you enjoyed our home. We began with a very simple design 21 years ago, but soon realized that we needed a second bathroom, thus a combined laundry/bathroom. Because of more unpredictable weather, and based on comments that we have received, it is clearly time to add some form of cooling apart from making do with adjusting windows and shades. Thank you for your comments and for choosing our home.
Amazing Stay at La Lomita
La Lomita is a wonderful home nested in an extreme tranquil and safe neighbourhood, and close to the main spots (from Ghost Ranch on the West to Taos Pueblo on the East). The closeness of Espanola is very helpful for grocery shops. The house is very clean, very well furnished, the beds are very comfortable, as the bathrooms. The high-ceiling living room is homey and relaxing. The kitchen is fully equipped, and it also has all seasonings and spices. What is truly priceless is to enjoy breakfast in the perfect silence of the patio panorama, and the starry sky at night. The owners and the property manager are very responsive and helpful. Perhaps, the only negative note is the absence of air conditioning. Maybe a system of "ecological" cooling, such as swamp AC, would fit perfectly this beautiful home and environment.
Wish we were aware that there isn’t any cooling system in the house. No swamp cooler or ac. We wouldn’t have stayed there as I have a medical condition and am on oxygen all the time. It’s important that I don’t overheat and I had to spend hours each afternoon in our car with the ac running. The 2 big fans helped but not until evening. Great location and had a great reunion with my friend but hated having to be out of the house. It would be perfect for me in the winter!
We are so sorry for your discomfort. No doubt that you assumed that a modern house in NM would have air conditioning, so even with your health condition, you did not inquire. Many guests have asked prior to renting what the weather and cooling system are like; however, with your helpful comments, we will put it in our home’s description so that it is clear. We hope the other aspects of your visit were enjoyable. Thank you for the feedback.
