Overview

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.

About Roxanne Connan

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

Why Roxanne Connan chose Santa Fe

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

Does Not Disappoint

  • 5 of 5
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.

Excellent value

  • 4 of 5
Located in the Guadalupe area of Santa Fe, Casita del Sol, is a clean, comfortable "home away from home" for any length of stay in Santa Fe. Roxanne and Andrew have provided any amenity that you could ask for, and are readily available to respond to questions and concerns.
The casita is a short walk to the historic downtown plaza which contains the city's museums, and the Railway Junction area which houses Santa Fe's famous Farmers' Market as well as several restaurants and cafés.
Guadalupe Street itself contains numerous interesting shops and restaurants.
There are also many walking, biking paths nearby.
We have enjoyed our month here, and we are sure that you will as well.

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

Great Little House

  • 5 of 5
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.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in Casita del Sol for a month while in Santa Fe. We sold our house a few months back and have been staying across the country in month long rentals. Hands down this was the best of our rentals. Casita del Sol is comfortable, super clean, and well appointed. The owners really have thought of everything and were very attentive when we needed anything. We also stayed in one of their other properties (Casita de la Luna) for a few nights and it was equally pleasant. If you have a choice, do not hesitate to stay here.

Hot time in Santa Fe

  • 4 of 5
A very nice property. We were in unit #2. We hit a big heat wave in June so it was a little hot without air conditioning. AC is seldom needed in Santa Fe, so just our luck. We walked from the casita to downtown and to the Railyard market. Lots of restaurants and galleries to choose from. The Safeway is just a few minutes north. Good property location and very quiet.

Owner's Response: Dear Mr. and Mrs. L,
I am very sorry that your week in Santa Fe was so hot. It happens every once in a while. And I am sorry that you did not feel the swamp cooler was adequate. Our family vacation in Italy was also very hot. At least in Santa Fe the temp drops 25-30 degrees at night, making sleeping more comfortable. Thank you for staying with us and I hope that you have a very cool rest of the summer.
