Description from the owner
Located in the historic village of Chimayo, New Mexico this property is ideally located to tour all the sites of Northern New Mexico and return to the peace, beauty and comfort at Paradise Pond. Paradise means water - a large half acre pond sits in front of the casita. Acequias (traditional irrigation ditches) flow down the East and West sides of the property by water rights agreements going back to the 1650's. The Pond overflow creates a charming stream that snakes back and feeds a wetlands area before pouring into the Santa Cruz River - all on our 8 acre lot. All this water creates large cottonwood forests and lovely garden areas. Miles of...Read more

Additional Location Information
Paradise Pond is off the High Road To Taos Scenic Byway in the village of Chimayo. We are off the main road and have ample parking on our very long and large driveway. The 8 acre lot including the Santa Cruz River, a half acre pond, streams and acequias is lush and surrounded by tall cottonwoods.
We are close to all the attractions of Northern New Mexico - 30 minutes to Santa Fe, 50 minutes to Taos, easy day trips to Los Alamos, Pueblos, Casinos, the Santa Fe Opera, hiking is world class and we can give you directions to off the beaten track hikes that are not in the tour guides, art galleries, weaving shops, historical sites, and much much more. It is a great central location to take off for the day's adventures and then return to the peace, comfort and beauty at Paradise Pond.

Additional notes from owner
Up to 4 people - there is one king bed and one full size bed. Due to the fact that Rio Arriba County allows for one rental in a home to be untaxed - there are no taxes.

What Past Guests Are Saying
The view of the pond is incredible!
My husband and I spent 2 nights at Paradise Pond in Chimayo. We were Jan and Tom's first guests! The rental is clean, beautiful and huge. The king bed was oh so comfy. We purchased groceries so we could fix our own breakfast in the fully equipped kitchen. We ate breakfast overlooking the pond - The view was incredible - the blue sky was reflected in the sparkling water, there was a sprinkling of snow on the ground and a Great Blue Heron was standing there! I could have sat there drinking my tea and watching the pond all day. We spent the day in Santa Fe and then came back to have dinner at El Rancho de Cimayo - I had yummy chile rellenos with an awesome flan for dessert (although choosing between the flan and their chocolate extravaganza was a tough choice!) We didn't have much time in Chimayo but the plaza and the very old adobe church were interesting. The weaving shops were also interesting and the weavings were gorgeous. We are planning to come back for a week in the summer and do some the things we didn't have time for; visit Black Rock Winery, tour Taos, go hiking, see indian pueblos and eat the chocolate extravaganza at El Rancho de Chimayo! Paradise pond is the perfect place to stay to explore the Santa Fe area.
