One part art museum, one part resort, one part luxurious private home, this magnificent property boasts all the perks of outdoor living in the glorious foothills just minutes from downtown Santa Fe.

Sunlit Hills Art and Views is exactly what its name promises: a gorgeous home perched in the foothills of southern Santa Fe. Filled with an eclectic collection of superb paintings, sculpture, and other artwork, and boasting absolutely drop-dead views of the mountains and desert. Staying here is an unforgettable pleasure, so exciting that you may have to tear yourself away to visit all the sights of northern New Mexico you promised to see on your trip! No worries -- despite its remote location with 365-degree views, Sunlit Hills Art and Views is just 7 miles (10 minutes by car) from the Plaza in the heart of Santa Fe!

From the moment you step inside this house, you know you are in for a treat. Every room is decorated with original artwork, and no matter how long you stay here, you will find yourself discovering a new favorite piece almost every day. Enter the main living room (there is also a den) and find yourself among not only ultra-comfortable leather sofas and chairs, a crackling kiva fireplace, and jaw-dropping views, but also surrounded by sculptures and paintings to enjoy in the changing light from the big New Mexico sky. Your vacation is going to be a very special one.

Instead of exploring the rest of the house, you may find yourself going straight out to the deck from the sliding-glass doors in the living room. Now, there are many outdoor spaces at Sunlit Hills Art and Views, but this deck will probably be your go-to spot first thing in the morning when you are clutching your coffee cup and wondering how you slept so long and so deeply. From this deck, you can see 50 miles across the Rio Grande Valley to the mountains. It's a view you will never tire of, for it changes every time you look at it.

Force yourself back indoors and discover the second living area, a sun-filled den with a sprawling sectional sofa, big HDTV with DVD player (you have WiFi here, as well as cable TV and all the other electronics you could wish), and a big desk overlooking another world-class view. What a great place to work, whether your work is office-related or artistic!

And although you're just a hop, skip, and jump from downtown Santa Fe, you will probably want to do a little cooking at Sunlit Hills Art and Views. It's a good thing the kitchen is so enticing, with its stainless-steel appliances, cupboards packed with cookware and serving dishes, and granite countertops boasting coffeemaker, toaster, and more. There's a big breakfast bar here --more like a breakfast island, with seating for many! -- and beautiful pottery topping every cabinet.

Choose from several large tables at which to eat. The formal dining room is adjacent to the kitchen, in a sun-washed area beside sliders leading out to the deck. Watch the sun slowly set as you enjoy fresh produce from Santa Fe's farmer's market, then clear the plates and linger here over a round of Texas Hold 'em!

When it's time for bed, choose among 3 bedrooms here at Sunlit Hills Art and Views. The primary suite is heavenly, featuring a king-sized bed and en-suite bath with Jacuzzi tub and handsome tiling.

The second bedroom offers a queen-sized bed and all the comforts of home, with access to the second full bathroom. And the third bedroom contains 2 twin beds. A third full bathroom means that everyone can shower and prepare in the morning without bumping elbows! And of course, all bed linens and bath towels are provided here, plus extras. You are always assured of a great night's sleep in this gorgeous mountain retreat!

The interior of Sunlit Hills Art and Views is only matched by the exterior spaces. There are so many areas around this home, you could hold a family reunion for dozens of people and never be short space! The big deck looking out toward the stone chiminea (with an adjacent tent for sun and snow protection) is only one of many, many areas you will count among your favorites. A picnic table overlooks the beautiful Chaparral, while a front patio with comfy loungers helps you to chase the sunshine across the sky. An open square paved in beautiful stone makes a fine place for any ceremony or meeting, while a volleyball court keeps the younger set happy during moments of downtime. Of course, there is a grill and a place for the whole crowd to dine together outdoors, too.

And then there's the big hot tub, set among trees for privacy, with an adjacent seating area. Enjoy the stars while soothing those tired ski muscles in hot, bubbly water! The hot tub is magnificent, the perfect place to end each day at Sunlit Hills Art and Views.

Do come stay at Sunlit Hills Art and Views very soon. You will admire the artwork, appreciate the luxurious appointments, and enjoy the convenience of a location that combines easy access to the city with unspoiled views of nature. Book today!

This property is welcoming, deluxe and extravagant yet comfortable. The artwork both inside and out is as breathtaking as the views from every room and deck. Easy drive to the Plaza. Looking forward to another holiday here in the future.

This is a truly special place. The interior of the house is like an art gallery, and the extensive grounds are like a sculpture garden. The views are gorgeous. There are many different places, indoor and outdoor, to hang out. The kitchen is fully stocked. We loved staying here.

We had a marvelous time in Santa Fe. We enjoyed time in Santa Fe but could also make day trips to places like Taos and Chimayo. We visited downtown Santa Fe and had some wonderful meals. I highly recommend Las Chozas, Cafe Pasquel's and Backroad Pizza. The house was amazing almost like a museum with such beautiful art and sculptures. The grounds were wonderful to walk around. Would tell anyone this is one of the best places I have ever stayed. If you just want to relax the house and grounds are all you need but if you want a little bit of culture you can have that as well.

Incredible property inside and out! Fantastic well placed art and furniture - well appointed, comfortable, quiet location, great views day and night from inside and out. Great outdoor spaces - would stay here again if in area.

This stay was more of an art experience than your typical rental. The entire house and grounds are full of countless pieces of fine art and sculpture and we were in awe through our entire stay. The views and outdoor space are spectacular and the interior of the home is spacious and comfortable. We didn’t even want to leave the rental to explore Santa Fe (we did but didn’t need to). The hot tub was icing on the cake and we spent many hours soaking and enjoying the peaceful and private outdoors. Our only complaint was that you have to pick up and return the key at a separate location, which wasn’t terribly convenient, but that would not keep us from booking again. Absolutely my favorite VRBO I’ve ever booked!!
