Description of the Santa Fe vacation home rental
Rass Mandal is a unique adobe vacation residence situated on a mountain range of pine forests with spectacular views. Entering brings you to another time and presents a serene and inspiring atmosphere for all. The house and grounds of more than 10 acres offer abundant locations for quiet time. There are numerous hiking & mountain bike trails immediately accessible, some of which take you directly to the center of Santa Fe.

Rass Mandal was featured on HGTV's House Hunter's on Vacation with the initial airing on June 22nd 2012.

Upon entering the home you encounter a large domed circular living room complete with a fireplace, eastern antique furniture and beautiful views looking out to a pool. This space is ideal for group sessions, gatherings and entertainment. Off to the left of the living room is the dining room and kitchen area. The dining table has room to accommodate 12 and is a great area for entertaining and formal meals. The kitchen is open plan and has a Moroccan style fireplace and a very comfortable breakfast nook ideal for bird watching. Behind the kitchen is a queen size bedroom and a bathroom, secluded from the rest of the house with its own private entrance.

To the right of the living room are guest quarters, each room offers views overlooking the grounds and the entire Santa Fe valley. The master bedroom is complete with a fireplace, a large meditation/work area, beautiful bathroom and sunken Jacuzzi with views. Additionally, there is a 2nd story observation deck that provides expansive views over all of Santa Fe, the Jemez Mountains and beyond. The house is not air conditioned but given the cool evenings it is not actually necessary. Fans are provided should they be desired.

Heading outside, there is a large private pool with waterfall, hot tub and sauna. The pool is heated during the summer months (June 1st - September 30th) - however it is 35,000 gallons and heating is not feasible during the other times. Generally the pool water temperature will be maintained at 78 F in July and August but ranges about 74 F - 76 F for June and September. The hot tub is kept at 104 F. All this is surrounded by a deck and patio ideal for outdoor dining and relaxation. There is also a gas-fired Fire Pit for enjoyment during the cool evenings.

Rass Mandal is simply fabulous, providing a truly unique experience in Santa Fe. It's incredible architecture, shapes, and spaces transport one to ancient India yet with all the modern conveniences in an amazingly beautiful location high in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains above the City with spectacular views. While only minutes to the historic Plaza, all the downtown cultural amenities and many fine restaurants, Rass Mandal is a quiet and peaceful retreat not to be missed. I encourage you to read the reviews from our previous guests by visiting Rass Mandal on the web. The web link is shown below or you may search on Rass Mandal using your browser.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

This is the most peaceful home I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. It is perfectly set up for comfort and ease. The living room is an ideal gathering place with the perfect lighting, comfortable moveable furniture and the most exquisite fireplace in Santa Fe. I brought 8 of my dearest friends from around the country to retreat from our lives. We had a private resort experience. We used the sauna and jacuzzi, which were perfectly heated for luxurious relaxation. Our five-day stay was the 2nd week of May, though, so the pool was too cold to use. While we used the fireplace every night, we were disappointed not to have access to the fire pit. Apparently the laws regarding fires became more strict. If the group you are considering bringing is coming to bond, this is an ideal environment for that. The house, the view, the incredible attention to detail, the 10 acre spaciousness and the high aesthetic appeal make this the ideal retreat.

The retreat at Rass Mandal was one of the best experiences I have ever had. My clients continue to feel the beauty, joy and stillness within them and are eagerly waiting for the next retreat. The beauty of Rass Mandal cannot be described, it is not only the physical beauty of the place and location but the love and intention which is put into every room in the house. I recommend that anyone looking to really go deep within themselves and find oneness with the vast magnificence of nature should experience a stay at Rass Mandal. I feel heartfelt gratitude for Richard for opening up this enchanting home for all of us. I am looking forward to having many more magical times at Rass Mandal.

love, light

My wife and I were looking for a place to stay that would allow us to decompress and rejuvenate. Rass Mandal far exceeded our expectations. The is house is filled with character and charm. Every room is uniquely furnished and very comfortable. The property is nicely spread out and the views are exceptional. Richard is an amazing host that treated us like lifelong friends. Staying at Rass Mandal made us feel like a king and queen living in a castle right out of a fairy tale book. We're looking forward to returning with our 5 children and 2 granddaughters.

I have been to many beautiful homes in Santa Fe, yet none compare to what Rass Mandal offers. The main house is a stunning blend of the Southwest and the East. Each room is a jewel containing detailed carved woodwork and is beautifully furnished. The views are fantastic, the pool area is so inviting you will not want to leave it, and the grounds are large enough to take relaxing walks. Richard is a generous host who will make sure your stay will be trouble free and memorable.

Richard is a fun loving person who gives humanity the benefit of the doubt. He has a beautiful home on top of a mountain they he wants to share with others and let them enoy this magnifecent space whether it be spiritual, spirtual healing or just plain bliss. He is a trustworthy healthy soul. As a friend or a business relationship I can recomend Richard. Thank You, Michael

Jun 2011

Rass Mandal was a special place for a reunion for 10. The location was only 15 or so minutes from the center of town. The home was spacious with 3 full baths 2 with showers. The kitchen was the best equipped I have ever experienced. While the home was one floor there were several step downs between rooms; but the halls were well lit. The beds were ready and there were plenty of towels, soaps and even shampoo. The dining area, silverware and plates accommodated our large group with ease and grace. The outdoor area was spectacular with multiple levels for swimming, dining, sunbathing, and just relaxing. We would definitely return; but, would stay longer. Highly recommended.
