My boyfriend and I had the great pleasure of renting a beautiful room from Exquisite Sanctuary. I am so happy that there was vacancy. The host responded to my interest in staying there in a very timely manner. I didn't really know what to expect, because this was my very first Exquisite Sanctuary experience. Well, after staying with there, I can assure you that I will definitely be using them again! My boyfriend and I traveled from Las Vegas to Austin. Along the way, we decided to spend some time in Santa Fe, because my boyfriend loves it there, and I wanted to see what all the hype was about! I looked into different hotel rooms, and not feeling as though I could find one to suit the vibe of the trip, decided to look into Exquisite Sanctuary, I am so glad I did! I was able to book a room for less than the cost of a nearby hotel, and the amenities and comfort level was above and beyond that of any hotel in the area. Plus, we were super close to the Plaza, and other places that we wanted to visit, such as Ten Thousand Waves. Upon our arrival, our host greeted us with a warm smile, gave us our key, and briefly gave us a tour of what would be our new place for the next 3 days. The place is immaculately clean, and the guidelines are very common sense. No shoes in the house, and no cooking after 9. But we came and went as we pleased, and sometimes were home after 2am. We are respectful guests, however, so we made sure not to slam the doors or be loud. Easy. Our host even provided house slippers, which I thought was super cute and thoughtful. We had our own attached bathroom, and the bed was super comfy. There was a lot of room for our belongings, internet access, nightstands and reading lights, and a fan. I know these are little things, but it's the little things that count! We never did laundry, but there was a washer and dryer there for our convenience. Plenty of room for groceries, as well. Our host himself is a really cool, down to earth, mild mannered, and sweet person. He basically was there if we needed anything, but let us have our privacy. He is very easy to get along with, and he and my boyfriend got to talking a lot about the sight-seeing in Santa Fe, food, and various other topics. I know that if I ever moved to Santa Fe, we all would definitely be friends! He is a raw foodist which I think is very cool. Anybody who takes that much time to eat well and live a healthy lifestyle, must know a thing or two about the important things in life. He even grows his own wheat grass! I thought that was cool. Anyway, that's my experience. If you're coming through or visiting Santa Fe, you definitely cannot go wrong by staying at Exquisite Sanctuary. Super peaceful, relaxing, and comfortable! Great vibes!

Our host was great with communicating prior to the trip. We wish we had more time to spend in Santa Fe...it smells amazing there. The room was very comfortable and clean, and we had access to kitchen etc if we needed. Our host was a nice and welcoming!


Penelope, Queensland, Australia

Our stay at Exquisite Sanctuary was fabulous. Tidy and comfortable, a short walk to the Plaza, central, close to everything. Our host was very helpful with any local information that we needed but at the same time allowed us our privacy. We felt we had the convenience of being in a home as well as the privacy of being in our own place. The price was reasonable and the place was everything that was promised and more. I would definitely come again and recommend to others.


Steve and Jeannine, Hong Kong

Exquisite Sanctuary is very well-located at an easy distance to walk from Santa Fe's historic old centre & our host is the perfect host: relaxed and friendly, very helpful and we hope to stay in his place again. The room is very well-equipped, spotlessly clean with a brand-new en-suite bathroom and high speed wireless internet. Totally recommend it and this lovely room. :-)


Clayton and Alexis, Knoxville, Tennessee

Our host was a great. He took us in last minute and understood our situation of traveling and being on the road. His house is beautiful and cozy, clean and organized! It is also only a 20 minute walk from the plaza and major restaurants and sights to see in downtown Santa Fe. I recommend staying here if you are ever in Santa Fe!


Cindy, Amarillo, Texas

Exquisite Sanctuary is great! We had a wonderful time and will be back every time we are in Santa Fe if he has a vacancy.


Brent, Dallas, Texas

Our host is a very polite and interesting person. His place is really clean, tidy and close to many attractions in Santa Fe ;o)


Allison, Athens, Georgia

Our stay in Santa Fe was fantastic. Our host was very accommodating and gave us great suggestions on where to eat and what to see. The house was perfect for us and the room was relaxing and clean. Our host has clearly spent a lot of time to make staying in his house a pleasurable experience and we definitely benefitted from this. The location was great for enjoying everything that there is to do and see in Santa Fe. I will definitely be staying here again the next time I am in Santa Fe! Thanks !


Michelle, Somerville, Massachusetts

Our host was an exceptionally welcoming. The house is located in a great spot and the room was clean and quiet. I would definitely recommend this place!


Patsy, Sugar Land, Texas

Bright, clean and internet! What more could you want? Our host was available if we had a question, but not a bother. Great place to stay and get the vibe of the city ~ Thanks!


Xiaoming/Lillyan, Beijing, China

My host was great! His place is beautiful and clean. I enjoyed full privacy but could always get to him whenever I needed. As a single girl traveling in a new place, I felt safe and warm because of my host’s hospitality and consideration. Highly recommended!!!


Julia, New York City

Exquisite Sanctuary is certainly the very best place to stay in Santa Fe. The house is centrally located - the old town is only 15-minute pleasant walk from the Sanctuary. The bedroom (as well as the whole house) was very quiet and spotlessly clean - we also loved the super comfortable bed. We had the perfect host: he was very flexible during the reservation process and gave us plenty of information about Santa Fe's best restaurants, bars and off-the-beaten track attractions. He even took care of our backpacking gear (rental) that we ordered to his address. He could not have been more helpful. We are looking forward to staying in the Sanctuary again. Thank you!


Claire, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

He was a great host, and his house is clean and comfortable. We didn't lack for anything during our stay, and our host had lots of good suggestions for things to do around Santa Fe. His house is in a nice, quiet neighborhood within walking distance of the Plaza.


Kate, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Our host was a warm and friendly with good recommendations for things to do in Santa Fe. The room was very comfortable, quiet and private. Thanks for having us!


Gabrielle, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

We had a lovely stay in Santa Fe. and had a great host, very welcoming and always ready to help. The room is comfortable and clean, in a quiet neighborhood that is a pleasant short walk away from all the action.


Anne, Brandon, Mississippi

Our host was a most gracious, his home is lovely and Santa Fe is wonderful. Stay here.


Christine, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The room was large, pretty and clean with a view of the backyard (lilacs in bloom when I stayed) and lots of light--one skylight. The bed was excellent and there was plenty of closet space. As a host, he was very kind, offering me rides when possible and finding me a lovely restaurant (and taking me there as well as picking me up) the first night. I was a little worried about sharing the bathroom with three others, but somehow we all managed a very delicate dance--my host and his two guests were very considerate as well as delightful to talk to. I had privacy when I needed it and company when I wanted it. It was a great stay.


François & Isabelle, Brussels Belgium

It is really a sanctuary where you can rest and enjoy the beautiful places in and near Santa Fe. We really enjoyed staying here. The bed was sooo comfy and our host is a host who really cares about his guests! The room is just gorgeous (with a private patio), and near the centrum of Santa Fe. Don't hesitate to ask where to eat or what to do, he will give you the best addresses. We would recommend this place and come again here if we have to go to Santa Fe!


Neela, Vancouver BC

Staying at Exquisite Sanctuary was lovely, peaceful, quiet and with great care by the host. He went out of his way to help me and was very kind. And a beautiful garden view from my room! Thank you, Neela


Elisha, Colorado

If you're looking for a quiet retreat in which to escape the craziness of the outside world, Exquisite Sanctuary is a lovely sanctuary. The room is pretty, clean and full of light. Its door to the outside looks out on a garden of blossoming fruit trees, with tile walkways. The host, himself, is essential to the experience, as I must have called him 4-5 times for directions to get from one place to another, or tell him I couldn't find St. Francis Dr. when I was actually already on it. He was infinitely patient, and kind, always there to assist in whatever way possible. I felt at home at Exquisite Sanctuary, a place of peaceful comfort! Big Hugs! Elisha


Mariko, Japan

I and my friend had a great time to stay at this place. The room has comfy bed, huge closet, and sunny window. Specially, the host, is really nice guy. He was always gentle and helpful. He bought new hair dryer after I asked him if he had it or not. We had a nice conversation one night during dinner time. I will recommend this place to my friends who are looking for accommodation in Santa Fe.


Josh, South Carolina

We had a great host. The room was neat, tidy, and towels were already ready and waiting for us on the bed! Nice house/room, and very friendly host!


Mikael and Barbara, Ontario, Canada

This is the place to stay in Santa Fe! Great location, minutes away from the Plaza. Amazing spacious room filled with light. The host was perfect, very welcoming and accommodating. We really enjoyed our three nights there.


Kate, England

Exquisite Sanctuary was spotlessly clean and the room was spacious and comfortable. My host was very friendly and accommodating and made us feel at home. There was enough room for us to park our car on the drive and walk into Santa Fe (about 25 mins).


Casey, California

Exquisite Sanctuary was great. We stayed in the "Inner Peace Room" for 2 nights. The house was nice, and the room was very nice and clean. Large room, very comfortable bed, a desk and wi-fi for our laptop, large closet, and the room had its own door to the backyard. It is a little over a one mile walk to the historic Plaza. There is a nice trail and a park nearby the house. Our host was very nice, a great concierge who recommended restaurants and gave us good directions, and he was easy to communicate with. We recommend this place for anyone visiting Santa Fe!


Diana, Texas

Our host was a great during our recent stay. He was accommodating to our travel schedule and gave us lots of good recommendations for restaurants to try while in Santa Fe. The room was clean and comfortable. Thanks for a great stay!


Andrea, Massachusetts

It was a delightful experience to stay at Exquisite Sanctuary. He was a wonderful host, and my friend and I felt very cared for. The room we stayed in was beautiful, simple and gave us privacy from the rest of the house if we wanted - that said, we could be part of the household easily as well. The host is generously clean and organized and the house was very well prepared for welcoming guests. Beyond this, the host is a delightful person, interesting to speak with, and interested in others. I would stay there again in a heartbeat, and can recommend him with two thumbs up!


Pete, Alabama

I stayed at Exquisite Sanctuary for a month. The overall experience was great. It's a walking distance to downtown and has a great set up. The host is a very kind and generous, both offering his time as well as giving guest the appropriate amount of distance to enjoy their stay. I would definitely stay there again.


Walker and Lea, California

We had a great stay in Santa Fe Exquisite Sanctuary! The house is lovely, warm and comfortable. Our bed was so comfortable we had a hard time getting out of it in the morning. Our host was a super welcoming. The location was convenient and picturesque, just a walk to the plaza for food and museums. We had an awesome time!
