Where you'll be
Casa de Caballo is a New Mexico-style casita, in the Bishops Lodge Hills and Villas subdivision which directly overlooks the beautifully reimagined Auberge Resorts Bishop’s Lodge that was recently ranked as the #1 Resort in the Southwest by Travel and Leisure 2022!
This Villa is one of very few Villas for rent (less than 10) that offers magnificent, UNOBSTRUCTED views (no other buildings, villas, parking lots, swimming pools, etc..) over the beautiful Auberge Bishops Lodge and onto the mountains and valleys in the South, West and North from your backdoor / patio!
Casa de Caballo offers contemporary “lodge elegance” with modern convenience and recently updated high-quality furnishings right down to the luxurious bedding! Walk across the threshold and take in your beautifully appointed living room with a wall of windows overlooking the spectacular view. You’ll love the diamond plaster walls, gorgeous new native American artwork and pottery along with beamed ceilings throughout the home that deliver a wonderful environment within a contemporary Southwestern design. Also, a large wood-burning fireplace anchors your living room and the flat-screen TV, along with a Bose soundbar for cable and / or streaming music, really set up the space for enjoyment on those cool nights. You also have access to the close by heated pool with its own beautiful views for summertime enjoyment! Of course, you may not want to watch much TV with your beautiful sunrise and sunset views! It’s much more fun to take your morning coffee or an evening cocktail out to your large patio, watch nature in all its glory and enjoy the fresh mountain air. This property overlooks Auberge Bishop’s Lodge with beautiful views of the entrance, grounds, access, etc.. Enjoy the wonderful Hiking trails found throughout the 300+ Acres of Bishop’s Lodge right outside your front door and then relax and enjoy fantastic dining and drinks at Auberge Bishop’s Lodge… which is also within walking distance of your Villa!
With all the excellent restaurants so close by in Santa Fe, it’s hard not to want to eat out for every meal. However, preparing your favorite meals at Casa de Caballo is easy and stress-free. The kitchen is fully equipped with a new WOLF gas range, cookware, stainless steel appliances, utensils, serving ware, and dinnerware so all you need to bring are the groceries. If the kitchen isn’t your style, then perhaps the gas grill on the patio is for you. The gas grill will help turn any meal into a culinary experience, best enjoyed by candlelight. If it’s cooler weather or you just want to enjoy the air conditioning, eating around your elegant dining room table is also an option.
Your large primary bedroom features floor-to-ceiling windows, a kiva fireplace, reading chairs, a flat-screen TV, and a luxurious king-size bed with a beautiful Pendleton Blanket for colder nights.. For a real treat, step through your French doors to your private patio where you can watch the stars come out in the crystal-clear night sky and you will be astonished at how many you see.
Your primary en-suite continues the pampering with its large walk-in shower and separate soaking tub. Dual sinks set in a lengthy vanity add to the convenience of your private spa. Your guests will also be surrounded with luxury in their handsome bedroom. Two queen-size beds, both with beautiful Pendleton blankets as well, look out through glass doors onto the private patio area and there’s a fireplace to keep guests warm while they enjoy a good book or TV show from the reading chair. Guests will also appreciate having their own private bathroom with shower/tub combination and a vanity with plenty of storage. You’ll have the perfect high desert vacation when you stay at Casa de Caballo! You will be close to the Opera House, Ski Santa Fe, the Plaza, art galleries, horseback riding, hiking trails and pool for your enjoyment. Tesuque is 3 miles away and the Historic Santa Fe Plaza is only 3.5 miles away! Make your reservations to visit Casa de Caballo today!

This property's main fireplace is very difficult to operate. Even with the flue open, smoke came directly into the living room and the fire would not stay lit. The instructions are clear enough, but the fireplace isn't performing well -- perhaps it needs chimney maintenance? Also, kindling or fire starters would be helpful. We had to ask.
We are sorry that you had trouble with the main fireplace. The chimney was inspected and cleaned in 2023 and all checked out fine. The fireplace works best when you have one of the top windows cracked slightly to draw more air through the fireplace.

It looks just like the pictures. Beautiful quiet area but still very close to downtown Santa Fe. If you're considering this place just do it. You won't be disappointed.

A beautiful setting just outside the Santa Fe city limits. Was a wonderfully, peaceful respite from our hectic city life. The accommodations were perfect for our family of four. The extra bedroom with 2 queens was great for our older kids and the master was very spacious. The evening and morning views were stunning. We are regular visitors to Santa Fe and will definitely keep this location at the top of our list. We typically stay in town near the plaza but the view and peaceful setting of this villa made it well worth the 3-5 minute drive from the city center.

This home was perfect for our 5 day visit with another couple. We didn't cook, but the kitchen was well stocked. The view was lovely and the home was nicely decorated and clean with good beds. While the air conditioning didn't work, it was fine since our friends from Palm Desert were already freezing, even with the 80 degree temps. :-) A main improvement would be a large flat screen over the fireplace.
