I am an artist and my husband is an engineer who loves to golf! We live in San Diego where I teach art classes at my studio and at the Art Institute of California/San Diego and Brian is a program manager in the design engineering industry. We have two beautiful girls, our good natured golden retrievers. We both love music and met swing dancing, which we also enjoy when we are in Santa Fe, where there is a lively dance community!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2006

For my 40th birthday we took a vacation to Santa Fe, and we both fell in love with it. I started coming back to Santa Fe after that to teach painting workshops every summer. The first time I came here I knew it was someplace special! The artistic community, fantastic restaurants, culture, shopping, people, architecture and music in the Plaza, it was a full sensory experience! In 2006 my husband and I decided to purchase a condo for our own use and as a future retirement home. Now I teach here in the summer and every other week I paint in the studio I make in the garage. You will see many of my paintings adorning the walls of the condo, Artista Casita!

Several times a year I try to get out and enjoy Santa Fe and to paint the colorful changes. September and October are my favorite times, with the aspens turning in early October. I love walking on the dirt trails all over our neighborhood and overlooking the city with the mountains all around. July and August are wonderful with the music in the plaza and all the summer foliage going strong, outdoor dining and late summer sunsets. Christmas season is magical with the pinon smoke in the air, festive decorations all around and farolitos glowing at night. Early winter is delightful with the bright blue sky and snow! One year we took a sleigh ride outside of town! Spring in Santa Fe is glorious with the fruit trees blooming and floral scents in the air with all the bulb flowers making their way back from winter. I keep my easel and chair in the garage for any artists to use during their stay. The adobe construction keeps the garage cool in the summer and warm in the winter! Anytime of year is great for long walks around the city admiring the architecture, and going to many of the local spas,10,000 waves and La Posada among my favorite! If you have any questions about Santa Fe email me - I consider myself a goodwill ambassador to Santa Fe and know lots of fun places to explore.

A Great Value!

We loved Santa Fe and the accomodations at this condo made our stay all the better. It is actually better than the photos. Great colorful southwestern decor, well-stocked and comfortable furnishings. The outdoor deck/porch area was a roomy and relaxing space and a nice bonus. The second bedroom is nice but is definitely a guest bedroom compared to the master suite with its large bathroom and small outdoor sitting area. Also, the main living area is immediately up a flight of stairs when you enter the condo, so if stairs are an issue, this is not the place for you. I usually like to mix it up, but would definitely consider staying here again. Here's hoping we'll return soon!

Spent a week at Artista Casita and it is everything that it says it is and more. We would definitely stay there again if we get back to Santa Fe. Very close to the Plaza and shopping center. Tastefully decorated, comfortable and a quiet area of the town.

This restful haven has been my retreat for all of August. Every feature and
amenity has exceeded my expectations by far. It has been a genuine pleasure to
be here, and it is actually with some regret that I leave to return home. Many
thanks.
