Stunning views, exceptionally clean and quiet.
Only two miles from the Plaza (downtown Santa Fe) my artistically decorated home is on a safe, quiet cul-de-sac where all the neighbors know eachother. The property backs onto a greenbelt where you can hike and see wildlife. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the back portal while watching the birds or have a glass of wine on the front patio in the evening and catch the sunset on the mountians as the city lights twinkle. In winter be cozy by the gas fireplace and contemplate the gently falling snow.
The inviting guest bedroom has a queen bed, nightstands with reading lamps, a large closet with shelves and hangers along with a newly renovated private bath with tub. Shampoo, conditioner, soap, two terry robes and a hair drayer are provided. You will have full access to the living, dining, kitchen and laundry, WIFI, and off street parking. The water from the fridge is filtered. While I do have a large screen TV , excessive TV watching is discouraged. A DVD collection is available. The house is cooled by an evaporative cooler and heated with natural gas/electric. To accommodate my many guests I am keeping the house fragrance free, no perfumes or sexy after shaves, sorry.
Breakfast is a help yourself affair, coffee and tea, granola, yogurt, eggs and english muffins are available for the first few days of your stay but after that you should provide for yourself. My only request is that you do not fry bacon or other fried foods to minimize lingering smells and grease build-up. I do not use milk products or wheat products on a regular basis so if those are essential you can pick them up at the near by health food co-op on the way to my house. A delightful cafe called the "Tune Up" is also just a few blocks away.
If you do not wish to rent a car I am open to picking you up at the train station or the shuttle drop off on Water Street. Bicycles and helmets are available for your use. A bus stop is close by. I love to hike and you are welcome to join me. When I am not working I am happy to do day trips in the surrounding area.
As your host I will let you know of any special events, the best places to eat, where to hike, petroglyphs and ruins to visit, which indian pueblos welcome the public, and when the art galleries are having openings.
I am a working artist and have my studio upstairs so it is important for me to have my space and quiet time to create. The guests I welcome are generally mature lovers of art and culture. I teach papermaking classes so you might want to plan on joining a class while you are here. You can download an application off my website.
For my own sanity I ask that all cell phone calls be conducted in the privacy of your room and not in the shared areas of the house. Thank you.
If you are bringing pets or expecting someone to join you I would like to know that before you make the reservation so we can discuss how they will be accommodated. There may be a pet suppliment.
I look forward to hosting you! If you like to play scrabble, banana gram or ping pong you will get a discount!

Ginny's place is simply wonderful! The room is very comfortable, private bathroom, and it's lovely to have shampoo etc available - thank you! Ginny's home is just lovely. Comfortable, beautifully decorated in artistic Santa Fe style. Ginny is the perfect host. She gave us suggestions of things to do and see, she even had dinner ready for us on the evening of our arrival, wow!
We had the pleasure of going out with Ginny to some of her favourite places: restaurants, hikes. And explored places on our own too. We were grateful to have the use of bicycles too.
If she had been running a paper-making class while we were staying I would have done that, as it sounds like fun.
This was a lovely, relaxing, interesting, fun experience, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ginny and her lovely comfortable home. We hope to meet up with Ginny again, somewhere on our mutual travels!
My 5-day stay with Ginny couldn't have been nicer. Her home is lovely! The bedroom and bathroom were comfortable and well-furnished with everything a guest might need, from extra comforter to hair dryer to a book light! Ginny herself was a generous, helpful host who helped make my visit very pleasant. And fun!
Ginny's is an amazing host. She is kind, generous, and very thoughtful to all who enter her home. Her house is comfortable, clean, and beautifully decorated with incredible views of the mountains surrounding Santa Fe. I would absolutely recommend her as a host and hope to stay with her again sometime soon!
Ginny was a great host! She is kind and caring and incredibly helpful, even gave me a ride to and from her home sometime instead of taking the bus! Her home is beautiful and she was grateful enough to make me feel as comfortable as possible my entire stay in Santa Fe. I am happy I was able to meet Ginny and will contact her again the next time I'm in the city.
I've just had a most delightful stay at Ginny's lovely authentic Santa Fe style home. She couldn't have been more gracious and accommodating - from preparing a welcoming dinner (and great conversation) to a joining me on a hike up the hills behind her home for a fabulous view of Santa Fe and the surrounding areas. Her spotless home is like a private sanctuary and I loved sitting on the front and back patios enjoying the birds and the beautiful Santa Fe sunsets. I couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay - thank you Ginny. I look forward to my next visit at her home - I feel like I have a new friend!
Had a great stay with Ginny! A very kind and helpful host -- and a wonderful home in a beautiful setting. Ginny was warm and welcoming, and readily offered suggestions on things to do and provided everything needed for a comfortable stay.
We had a wonderful time at Ginny's. The house is lovely, near downtown, yet in a quiet neighborhood. Sitting on the patio in the evening or morning and watching the birds or just savoring the silence is a pleasure. Better yet, choose which patio! One for city lights in the evening or one for absolute privacy on the nature preserve.
Ginny is a great host and has every guest need covered, right down to Santa Fe tourist info and shower gel! We got to spend some time together and shared a couple of meals and it was a pleasure to get to know her. At the same time, we never felt we lacked privacy.
We definitely recommend staying with Ginny and hope we can come back some day!
We love to go Santa Fe every year to enjoy the rich cultures, rich food and laid back atmosphere. This year was a real treat for us to stay at Ginny's place. She is a wonderful host and helped us set our itinerary weeks before the trip. Once we got there we thoroughly enjoyed her beautifully decorated house and comfortable accommodations. We hiked around the open space behind her house and found the area to be not only beautiful, but very safe. On our last night there Ginny invited us to join her and her friends for a Labor Day dinner party. We had such a good time and truly appreciated an authentic Santa Fe experience. Thank you Ginny!
"We spend 12 delightful days at this attractive site. We ate meals here on both the front and rear patios in the company of hummingbirds, with wonderful views of the mountains. The home is well located, close to downtown Santa Fe and only blocks away from major routes to many area attractions. Ginny was our hostess and provided information about the area, including suggestions regarding things to see, where to park in the city, the location of area trails to hike, and more.
What a great find this was. The house is wonderful, with spectacular views out the front and back. The location is great with easy access to hiking/bike trails and walking distance to downtown.
Ginny is a wonderful host. Easy to talk to. Full of good information about the town and Santa Fe area. She keeps a clean house and we get to use it as if it were ours. Her artistic talents are evident in the charming design and decoration of her home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will stay here again when we return to Santa Fe.
