Lovingly refurbished in 2004, our 2 bedroom attached casa has the warm coziness of double-adobe plastered walls, eleven foot viga ceilings, kiva fireplace, brick and original wood floors, and a beautiful private garden area with porch swing and dining area. To these traditional touches we include the following to ensure your comfort: washer/dryer, TV, microwave, full kitchen with a dining table that seats 6, king bed, 2 twin beds, plush robes, and beautiful furnishing.
We loved staying at your place from December 20-24,2008!!
I can't imagine a better greeting than the soft music playing, the lights on, and all waiting for us at the casita when we arrived late late late on 12/20. What a great continuation of a "relationship" that promised to be spectacular from the first time I connected with you via email and website.
I am so sorry that we didn't invite you in to lounge with us that morning you called and wanted to meet us but we were in our PJs and declined--in hindsight, we should have leapt at the opportunity to meet you and thank you in person. But unfortunately hindsight is clearer than "in the moment" sight, and we didn't. I am so sorry now that we didn't take advantage of your on-site and in-person hospitality and thus missed the chance to meet you.
We loved loved loved your place! It was beautifully decorated, every piece of the furniture was comfortable, it was exquisitely equipped, and there were signs of special touches and thoughtfulness absolutely everywhere! I loved greeting the person who shovelled our driveway and sidewalk, since it was such an over-the-top and pleasant service. By the time the shovelling was needed, I should have known that such thoughtful service was simply "standard fare" in your book--such touches were clear throughout our stay. But they were still astounding and very much appreciated.
Happy 2009 to you and (belated but not insincere by any stretch of the imagination) THANKS!!!!
Tracey and Aaron
P.S. Particularly loved the Linda + Tim imprint in the driveway cement--how utterly charming!!!!!!!!

This is was our second Thanksgiving week stay at Casa Colores. Linda always makes us feel like we have stepped into our second home. The locations is perfect for walking to the square and seeing the local vendors. The local restaurants are close and fantastic!!! I would absolutely recommend Casa Colores to anyone traveling to Santa Fe. Thank you Linda:)
Our second time staying here and we love it! Very quiet, close to town, beautifully appointed -- with one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on! Authentic Santa Fe with all the amenities... can't wait to return. SF favorites for us -- Pasqual's and the Museum of International Folk Art.
Wonderful place to call "home" in Santa Fe

My husband and I spent 4 nights here with our two dachshunds and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Although the rental is part of a multi-unit adobe complex, we had a great sense of privacy. We enjoyed spending time on the small private patio relishing the Santa Fe fall temperatures and blue skies. The thick adobe walls insulate the home well. We never heard any outside noise when inside the house, which made for peaceful nights of sleep. Linda made sure we had breakfast items, including eggs, coffee, half and half, bread and butter. The kitchen is very small, as you can see in the pictures, so if you intend to cook a lot on your trip you might want to consider another place to stay, as working in such a small space can be rather frustrating. This wasn't a big issue for us, though, as we wanted to eat out frequently to get our fill of amazing Northern New Mexican dishes with lots of green and red chilies! The location of the rental is fantastic. In less than 5 minutes you can be parked downtown and walking the plaza. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone considering a trip to Santa Fe, and would happily stay here again on any of our future Santa Fe trips.
Linda was a wonderful host! I have stayed in many vacation rentals, and this was the first time all of the makings for breakfast were provided upon arrival. What a treat! Along with the welcome bottle of wine and fresh fruit we had everything we needed to relax after a long drive. The house is absolutely charming, with a lovely back patio attached to the living room and master bedroom. With walking distance to the Plaza, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to enjoy Santa Fe!
