AUTHENTIC SANTA FE CHARM NEAR THE PLAZA-CASITA DEL SOL

Santa Fe House Rental Photos and Description

- 1 bedroom, 1 bath, full-size fold-out couch, sleeps 3

Casita del Sol is the epitome of the charming, authentic casita that everyone looks for when visiting Santa Fe, located within a 10-15 min. (.7 mile) walk of old Santa Fe's picturesque plaza. In the summer, enjoy our walled garden (shared with our other casita) as well as a private bistro table and chairs in the rear of the casita. In the winter, cozy up by your own kiva fireplace. It is very secluded and quiet, featuring authentic hand-painted Mexican tile and coved ceilings with original vigas, furnished with hand-carved Southwestern style furniture. The bedroom features fine linens for a wonderful night's sleep. There is a full-size sleeper sofa in the living room area. The sunny atmosphere is the result of skylights throughout. Tastefully decorated with attractive artwork and hand-woven rugs. Off-street parking available as well as laundry facilities. Upon your arrival, you will find all the ingredients for a continental breakfast! The casita is maintained with care and pride.

Long-Term Owners: My husband and I have owned this property for over twelve years. In that time we have established a number of return guests who come year after year, saying that this is the best accommodations they have ever stayed in while in Santa Fe.

Cooling: A/C: The property does not have air conditioning and it is not necessary. This is the original adobe construction which has been used in New Mexico for centuries. The adobe walls keep the casitas cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The only kind of air conditioning that I could put in these historic buildings would be window units and I refuse to do that as they can be quite noisy and unsightly. We do have fans, as well as a portable air conditioner available for the summer months if people want to use them. In addition, in Santa Fe, the nights are 25-30 degrees cooler than the days, so we do not have warm summer nights. We have guests who return every summer and know that the casitas are very comfortable. I remember a couple from Southern California who stayed with us a few years ago. They were concerned that there was no air conditioning, but they decided to stay anyway. They later told me that they were totally comfortable and were very pleased to have stayed in our property.

Miscellaneous: One week stay minimum. No cleaning fees, no security deposit, no contracts.

My husband and I bought this property more than eleven years ago. I love owning the property and knowing the people who come back year after year. We have lived in Santa Fe for over thirteen years and live a little bit outside of the city limits. We have a 16-year-old son, two collies and a cat.

Roxanne Connan purchased this house in 2002

When I first saw it, I knew it was the one because of the privacy, quiet and peacefulness. Short walk (10-15 minutes) to the plaza, but less expensive than staying on the East side. A few blocks from the new Railyard.

I always put in the makings for a breakfast (cereal, milk, juice, bread, jam, fruit, butter) so people won't have to arrive in the afternoon and then immediately go find a grocery store.

Does Not Disappoint

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 27, 2009
  • Stayed: Oct 2009
Over the years, I have stayed in a number of places in Santa Fe - some of them very expensive and all very nice. However, Casita del Sol became my favorite the minute I walked in. It balances charm with functionality and comfort. There is great attention to detail in terms of the amenities that are provided, the space is well laid out and the architecture and decor are classic and welcoming. The location is good - close to everything but quiet. The owners are great to deal with - organized, friendly and responsive. I would stay here again in a NY minute (well actually, I guess that should be a NM minute). Highly recommend it.

We had a wonderfull week at Casita Del Sol (n. 2). This is a casita nicely decorated, well equiped with a pleasant spatio. Everyday we went to the plaza within a fifteen minutes walk. Thanks to Roxanne for her delicacy in every details particularly in providing us everything for a few breakfast. We felt at home all the week long. We stongly recommend a stay at Casita Del Sol.
Owner's Response: Dear Mr. & Mrs. P,

Thanks for taking the time to write this review. I will let you know when I can read the French comments that you left in the guestbook (maybe never?), although I don't know if I will learn that much French next summer. I hope you had a safe trip home. We would be very pleased to have you as return guests.

Regards,
Roxanne

A Great Stay!

Roxanne and Andrew:
What a pleasure to have found such a lovely casita on-line. A great location - midway between the Plaza and the Railyard.
This was not our first visit to Santa Fe, but the first time we have rented a house for a full month. Perfect for our needs and even worked well when our daughter visited for 5 days.
We explored Santa Fe in far more depth than on previous visits, and also took a number of hikes; visited Bandelier, Chimayo, Taos, Ghost Ranch, Las Vegas, Tent Rocks National Park (amazing!).
We took advantage of all the museums and thoroughly enjoyed the International Folk Art Festival and the Hispanic Market.
Roxanne anticipated much of what we might need, right down to cereal, bread, butter and jam.
It was a pleasure to sit outside and read. A great stay!

Great Little House

  • Submitted: May 11, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
My wife and I spent 5 days in this lovely casita, and it was perfect -- clean, light, well-appointed and comfortable. Roxanne went out of her way to make us feel welcome. The location is perfect - nothing is more than a short (less than a mile) walk to historic downtown, interesting galleries, the Georgia O'Keefe Museum, and a wide range of restaurants. Whole Foods market is a 5-minute drive, and it was easy to find roads out of town to extraordinary hikes in Bandolier, Ghost Ranch, and more. You won't regret your decision to stay at 102 Pena Place.

Lovely Casita

  • Submitted: Mar 8, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2012
We used to live here years ago and came back to share Santa Fe with our teenage son before he goes off to college in the fall. What a lovely casita. Thank you so much! On Christmas Eve, we walked to Canyon Road and later walked to midnight mass while it was snowing a beautiful, gentle, Christmas snow. Santa Fe is still a magical place.
