This house is perfect for a family gathering. We comfortably slept 6. Easy access to downtown Santa Fe, nice patio for breakfasts, quiet neighborhood. Karen is very helpful and responsive.

Response from Karen:
I walk through the house daily and check everything prior to guests but don't get into climbing on beds to look in corners. Unfortunately we had not used the fans this winter and the housecleaner forgot them. I had no clue what your initial photo was so I asked for a verbal or written list. I had good intentions and was willing to make it right. No list came, only hysteria. There were some opinion that possibly you were in on a scam to get all your money back for a cheaper vacation. I choose not to believe that but due to lack of cooperation and good will it did cross my mind.
