Tucked away on a quiet street just half of a mile from the Plaza is a gem of a Santa Fe rental home known as Susan's Hideaway. This 2 bedroom 3 bathroom home is full of comfortable modern amenities and tons of Southwestern charm. With room to sleep 6, an incredible location and an abundance of warmth, this rental home will have you coming back year after year. Downstairs, the living room is furnished with two cozy chairs and a top-of-the line, American-made leather sofa with attached chaise lounge. The sofa's hidden bonus, the specially-crafted, queen-sized sofa bed with tempurpedic mattress as well as Tiffany's trademarked 21/7 sleep system, ensures that your downstairs guests get the same level of comfort as with a typical bed. It is a wonderful spot to gather with friends and family and reminisce about days gone by while enjoying a drink made at the wet bar. Tucked away in an armoire is a flat-screen TV connected to premium Comcast cable (including HBO, Cinemax, Showtime and ESPN) as well as a DVD player. This home has high speed internet with enough bandwidth to handle multiple devices at the same time. Travertine tiles and vigas provide Santa Fe charm while wall mounted refrigerated air conditioning units keeps you cool on hot summer days. There are 2 sets of french doors which lead to both the front and back patios. The updated kitchen has granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and all the cookware, dishes, and flatware you will need to enjoy your favorite meals at home. There is also a breakfast bar providing a nice spot to enjoy your morning coffee and read the news. For a more formal dining experience, enjoy your home-cooked meals at the custom-built, Mexican tile dining table that seats 6 (and expands to seat 8) located just off the kitchen. There is no better spot to gather the whole family and relish in a magnificent meal or catch up on the day's adventure. The 3rd full bath, complete with tub and washer/dryer, is also located on the first level. This bath is easily accessed from all areas of the first floor and the patios outside, and doubles as a comfortable full bath option for guests sleeping downstairs. Upstairs you will find the 2 master suites. Both are adorned with king beds and have en-suite bathrooms both with stand up showers (no tub). The bedrooms both have a flat-screen TV connected to premium Comcast cable (including HBO, Cinemax, Showtime and ESPN) and wall mounted refrigerated air conditioning units for warm summer nights. Just outside the bedrooms is a small work-space for the member in your party who just can't leave work behind. You will find two beautiful patios in this home. One is located out front and has very comfortable chairs great for enjoying an evening cocktail. The second patio is located out back and features a table with 6 chairs and a charcoal grill giving you the option to make some great barbecue.

This property was everything that was told to us and more. Only two minutes to the Plaza by auto, only if you are in a hurry. All the furnishings were top of the line and verrrry comfortable. Many channels to choose from for the men out there. It feels like our second home. We will be back!

Nicely appointed home in a ritzy area of town next to chi-chi Canyon Road - access to everywhere easy - house is comfortable and friendly - amenities excellent - plan to make this our home away from home when we come back
"December '09 Review of Susan's Hideaway from the Manning Family!"

We really enjoyed Susan's Hideway for the week we were there! It was very comfortable and clean, but in one room there were little bugs that kept coming around. That was our only complaint except for the tight area of the driveway. It was nice to arrive and have the most useful amenities there already for us to use (soap, lotion, laundry soap, dishwasher soap, GLAD storage bags, and such). It was also a great location to the Santa Fe Ski Mountain as well to the main highways to get to Taos Ski Mountain which we did both!
Thank you; the little bugs were box elders from the large tree - it has been taken care of with the tree man.

"A Beautiful Property with Some Quirks"

Susan's Hideaway is a comfortable, tastefully decorated, well-appointed, and conveniently-located home, but it does have its drawbacks. It is a private rear unit in a condo complex, located down a long driveway. The designated off-street parking is tight, and suitable only for a small car. The street itself is a narrow cul-de-sac with limited parking.
When I arrived, there was a car blocking the driveway. I rang the doorbell of the front unit, asked politely if it was theirs, and if they would move it. The owner of the front unit was most disagreeable, claiming that both the driveway and the parking space next to his entrance belonged to him, and that he is "in an easement dispute" with the owner of Susan's Hideaway. When I showed him my rental documents, he persisted with his claim, but agreed to move his car so that we could at least wheel our luggage through. He nevertheless made it clear he did not want us use the driveway. At the end of our conversation, he shifted his argument to a self-serving opinion that the back unit's spaces were not real parking spaces, and that it was almost impossible to turn a car around there (untrue). As it happened, it snowed during the week we were there, making a tight and tense situation worse, so I ended up parking on the street.
The last night of our stay, the temperature dropped to 4 degrees F, and although the house remained cozy and warm, we awoke to find that some pipes were apparently frozen. There was no water at all in one of the showers, nor hot water in the kitchen sink. The place has three bathrooms, so it was a minor inconvenience on our last morning. The agent's answering service was responsive, but I had to tell him that I could not be there to receive the plumber, as our check-out was 10AM.
It was quite a memorable holiday.

Before I signed the lease I made it quite clear I didn't want a property where animals had stayed. The moment I opened the front door it was apparent a dog had been in the downstairs area. Also, I was told there were fans in the rooms, but there were none in the living room or kitchen. With temperatures in the 90's it wasn't pleasant.
Comments are inaccurate - this house is stunning and we have a staff member who checks all houses before a guest arrives. This was the case. This property is a no pet property and there was never a pet here.
The house does have ceiling fans in the upstairs bedrooms, but the property was not represented to have fans downstairs and the pictures do not show fans.

CEILING FANS IN THE LIVING ROOM AND DINING ROOM WOULD BE GOOD FOR THOSE HOT SUMMER DAYS. ALSO PARKING IS BAD.
