Santa Fe enjoys a semi-arid climate. Due to the 7000-ft elevation, summers are extremely mild with warm sunny days and cool breezy nights. Air conditioning is seldom necessary in Santa Fe (although this townhouse does include it). Nestled between the Sangre de Cristo Mountains (east) and the Jemez Mountains (west), winters are usually mild although nights are often below freezing. The low humidity and clear blue skies free from and smog produces one of the most healthful in the US. Sun shines 300 days/yr.
As an Easterner, this climate is super, as the aridness produces much sunshine and little humidity, which, at both hot and cold temperatures, makes one feel great.

We have stayed here twice... we stayed last week and each day rode our Harley Trike a new destination. Wonderful riding and awesome place to stay. Everything available and very comfortable and decorated beautifully.
Kathy is so great to work with and so glad we could get this place for the 2nd time.

This is a lovely condo in a quiet area of Santa Fe that is beautifully decorated and feels like home. The owner has provided all of the amenities you would need to make your trip a relaxing and comfortable one. The patio off the bedroom has a lovely view of the mountains. The condo has a fireplace and is clean and inviting. You will need a car to get to the center of town, but the location is quiet and away from the bustle, yet close to restaurants and shopping malls.
