Placitas is a very quiet and peaceful town. The unit has the Sandia mountains right behind it. Matilde kindly left me some treats and basic cooking supplies (oil, eggs, half & half). There are some eating options a couple of miles down the road but it was useful to be able to cook dinner there as I wasn't sure I'd find my way back in the dark as there are no streetlights. Perfect for a quiet getaway.

Maurice, thanks for your nice review. About the lights, let me tell you that it's regulated like that to preserve the pristine sky which you surely enjo. Mind you, on full moon nights it is as if the lights were there to show you the way. Thanks for choosing us. Matilde :)

My floor of the house was spacious and well enough equipped. My hostess was available when I needed her. The area is very quiet and I enjoyed walking there. It is convenient, maybe a five minute ride, back to a local grocery shop. Ten minutes or less puts you in a larger town or back on the interstate and on to Albuquerque with a half hour. It is about an hour or a little less to Santa Fe. The Wifi worked well for the entire time I was there.

Smartphone navigation was enough to bring us right to the doorstep of this listing. We were welcomed to our stay with fresh fruit and a tour of the space, which was spacious, bright and sunny, tidy and clean. All windows had curtains to keep out the sun when it became too warm. There is art in the space and quite a bit of attention has been given to detail...making for a comfortable homey feel. This listing was away from the congestion and activity of Albuquerque, and the surroundings were beautiful...literally sitting on the foothills of the 10,000 foot high Sandia Mountains. Our hosts informed us of hiking trails a short distance away, but unfortunately we did not have time during our stay to appreciate them first hand. We would gladly stay at Estrella Bliss again.

Matthew, thanks a million for your feedback. We're very glad you enjoyed your stay in Placitas and will definitely welcome you both any time you plan to do so. As for the advice to improve, also thanks! It's important for us to learn what you guests like and enjoy and we wish to have a second chance to make your stay even more enjoyable. As for the flexibility on the checkout time, it's just a matter of wanting to help you use more time if needed. Now, the system is planned with enough time for guests to leave and new ones to arrive. We'll have to stick to that probably... It's been an enourmous pleasure to have you and Sarah as guests. :)

We love our sunrises and sunsets here in Placitas. Undoubtedly, Georgia O'Keefe did justice to New Mexico landscapes and at this point, we wouldn't be able to live without them.
We love traveling and meeting like-minded people.
We are excited to pamper our guests so they can feel at home when visiting Placitas. We also expect our guests to respect the place as if it was theirs, bearing in mind that other guests would enjoy it as they did.
