CASA ADORE' (The Endearing One)
This cute and cozy three-room territorial-style adobe is classic Old-Santa-Fe. Built in the 1930s for his family by the late 'adobero' Jose Antonio Dominguez, this 770 sq foot home blends historic hand-crafted Dominguez furnishings with earthy international decor and contemporary museum-quality paintings. Eighteen delightful custom wall colors integrate the historic home. Entry is into a spacious, light-filled country kitchen with its pine plank flooring. The pass-through livingroom/den with its original viga-beam ceilings has two beautiful old storage 'roperos' - (amoires) . The bed-bath suite with its historic turquoise(!)viga-beam ceiling and pine flooring has oriental rugs, Mexican writing desk & other antiques and art.
On the outside, a street-side, wisteria laden, wood portal frames the territorial style windows with traditional lace curtains. Casa Adore' is buffered from street activity by a small supply room, and is entered from OTERO's internal courtyard.
CASA ADORE' is located in the OTERO-by-the-Plaza three-home compound. The Compound is just three blocks (a five minute stroll) to the Plaza and five blocks to art-studded Canyon Road. It is nestled into the wooded knoll that overlooks the historic Santa Fe Plaza. Aside from its easy accessibility to all Santa Fe has to offer, the Compound's great appeal is its quiet privacy, its unique colors and decor, and its flexibility in accommodating from 1 to 16 guests (or up to 42 in conjunction with neighboring homes). This 3/4 acre haven also adjoins the thirty-acre Fort Marcy Park with its 360-degree ring-of-mountain-views and breathtaking sunsets. Just beyond is National Forest.

' Casa Adore' is my favorite house in Santa Fe. So intimate, so genuine -- like being in the old villages. It's a place to 'just be!' - MN (Santa Fe Resident.)

We have eight homes clustered in the same historic, residential neighborhood. As such we are a favorite for reunions, multi-family get-togethers, and special celebrations. Honeymooners, dear friends, and empty-nesters also find intimate respites for their Santa Fe visits. Please call us to discuss our mix-and-match accommodation possibilities.

A mere "Thank You" certainly seems inadequate for the kindness and hospitality shown us by you three. Our stay in Casa Adore couldn't have been more comforting; nor better medicine for our very souls. Love,

Together we welcome the opportunity of hosting you in Colorful Santa Fe!
Twenty years ago we hand-built a now somewhat-celebrated, environmental strawbale home in the Jemez Mountains above Santa Fe. Ten years ago we decided to purchase an in-town pied a'terre--just a small gem-of-a-place in which we could overnight during shopping trips in Santa Fe. Wanting to get the right place in the right location, we engaged in an eight month exhaustive search and ended up purchasing--not one--but two adobe homes in this historic neighborhood just 3 blocks from the Plaza. They became our first guest homes. Now, in addition to living in this same neighborhood, we manage 8 other guesthomes in the same residential block. Why were we so seduced by this neighborhood? In short, it is partway up the ONLY knoll close to the Plaza. So from within any of our guesthomes, there is a constant sense of place: Our over-the-roof-top-views are of the historic Santa Fe Cathedral against a backdrop of mountain ranges and glorious sunsets. AND WITHIN 4-5 WALKING MINUTES WE ARE DOWNTOWN--RIGHT IN THE VERY HEART OF OLD SANTA FE! Here the glories of historic Santa Fe and our Southwest landscape are bundled into one. Our fascinating guests keep coming back and are now friends. We'll never move!
Close access to Santa Fe's best shops and restaurants, galleries and museums, cinema, and music. Many outdoor sporting opportunies are immediately at hand. There is a large public swimming pool and exercise facility within three blocks.
