After attending graduate school at the University of New Mexico, both of us fell in love with the Southwest: the landscape, the people and the combination of three different cultures: Hispanic, Indian and Anglo. Santa Fe is in many ways the cultural hub of New Mexico if not the western US. Being one of the oldest cities in North America, it has a long and intriguing history. Because of its history and diversity, Santa Fe has attracted people who love the beauty of the high desert along with the freedom and creativity of the West. We both hope that you enjoy your stay at our condo and your time in Santa Fe.

Bob and Patricia

The Owner purchased this condo in 1987

We bought this unit in 1987 and had it as a long term rental for many years. However since we wanted to have a place to stay when we visit Santa Fe, we converted it to a short term rental several years ago.

As they say in real estate, Location, Location, Location!!! We are blocks from the Plaza and Canyon Road. To explore downtown, we park the car and walk.

GREAT BASE FOR ENJPYING SANTA FE

  • 5 of 5
We had visited Santa Fe many times when we lived in New Mexico but this was our first long stay, and this was a very nice place to be. The Casita was as advertised and more. It was attractive and clean. There was a nice front porch and fenced area our dog loved (so did we). There is a pleasant view of the neighborhood and hills beyond from the front porch. There is good off street parking for one vehicle, two in a pinch, and lots of parking on the street. The kitchen was fully equipped for all the cooking we chose to do. The TV and wi-fi worked. The Casita had a nice library of regional cookbooks and guides, as well as some good mysteries and novels. We found it to be a great place to relax, convenient to downtown and near to banking, shopping, etc.

The location is close to the Plaza and even closer to the Fort Marcy recreation complex, with a large grassed area, minor league baseball stadium and city-run fitness center with attractive rates. The neighborhood was quiet and pleasant, with interesting homes and plantings. The neighbors we met were nice. There was a good coffee bar about a quarter of a mile away.

PRIVATE, QUIET, CHARMING SANTA FE CASITA

  • 5 of 5
This is perfect for two cohabiting adults! The casita is charming and within a short walk of the Plaza and great restaurants. If you don't "love" the rigmarole of staying in a hotel or B&B, this is the place for you. The owner responded promptly to our VRBO query, the listing was accurately described, casita was clean and well maintained. Restaurant recommendations: Pasqual's (of course), La Boca (tapas), and Treehouse (in DeVargas Center): all are great for gluten-free dining.

Our one complaint: the management company was unable to get a smoke detector in neighboring condo (shares a wall with the casita bedroom) turned OFF until 11 a.m. on the day AFTER we arrived. Although we created some "white noise" with a handy electric fan, my husband could not sleep through the regular (every 30 seconds) bell sounds the smoke detector made — I think the management company could have offered us a better apology than "Sorry, I'm in New York and the maintenance guy is busy." Other than that, we had a great time and would recommend this spot to others.

Owner's Response: We are sorry about the smoke alarm going off in the unit A. It is very unusual that unit A was vacant and that both property managers were out of town at a family reunion. However, we are glad that other than the alarm problem that our guests enjoy their stay in the casita and would recommend our Casita Artista to others with a 5 star rating

CASITA ARTISTA ES PERFECTA!

  • 5 of 5
Casita is a "little house" in Spanish -- but the value is big. A few minutes walk to the plaza makes the quiet location convenient, and the kitchen in particular is full of needed supplies, cookbooks, and tasteful amenities. You can park right in front, but walk back and forth to town. It's perfect for a couple, and has room for kids on the foldout. Inside is cozy and authentically Santa Fean, with fireplaces in the living area and kitchen. Original art on the walls is a special touch, and the place was perfectly clean and neat. I'd stay again, and recommend it to friends and strangers!

If you like to hike, make the trip to Tent Rocks, south of town for extraordinary geology. Visit the sculpture foundry at Tesuque, and eat lunch at Tesuque Market. Lots of good food is nearby; we like La Boca. Have a sunset cocktail in the rooftop bar at the La Fonda.

COZY CLASSY CASITA

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had never been to Santa Fe and when our son recently moved there we chose to stay at this beautiful casita. The place is really charming and is much larger than it appears in the photographs. Every decorating detail has been carefully thought out - down to the exquisite knobs on the bathroom cabinets!! The kitchen was stocked with spices and all the amenities we needed. Since Santa Fe has so many great restaurants we didn't eat at home too often. Pat and Bob have provided a thorough binder filled with ideas of places to dine, shop and where to go for sightseeing and sporting activities. The casita is quiet and has 2 fireplaces (logs are provided also!). It was great to have WIFI also!

My husband and son went skiing at Taos while I visited the Taos Pueblo. We also snow shoed at Hyde State Park which is just up the road along with Ski Santa Fe which was another one of our destinations. We visited Bandelier National Park and had a guided tour at the Puye cave dwelling site in the Santa Clara Canyon.

The casita is very close, within walking distance, to the Santa Fe Plaza. There we found fabulous restaurants - notably breakfast at Tia Sophia and checked out the jewelry offered by the Native Americans who spread out their blankets in the Plaza. Our son took us to a very comfortable bar called Marble Brewery - also in the Plaza. There are too many great places to eat to mention! Canyon Road and the Railyard offered interesting art galleries. Santa Fe is a small city, but has a lot to offer to any visitor.

This casita is the place to stay when you visit Santa Fe. I would love to return when it is warmer just to make use of the porch and backyard! LOVELY from start to finish. I highly recommend this property and found dealing with the owners and their agents a complete pleasure.

LOVELY TIME IN SANTA FE

  • 5 of 5
This was my first visit to this enchanted town... my girlfriend's second.

Santa Fe is a peaceful, cultured, naturally beautiful city. Bring your love of art, food and nature because there is plenty of each. The art walk was amazing on Canyon Rd!
The downtown is very social and inviting.

And making it all so comfortable was our place - Casita Artista.
It was home away from home and that says a lot. The location was just right I thought. Not too close to the bustle of downtown which I liked BUT not far either. A pleasant 8 - 9 minute walk for us.
It got to be so familiar and so welcome to make our little walk. But don't be shy about occasionally using your car in Santa Fe... we found parking on the few occasions we drove around. Just bring some quarters for the meter.

The casita has four nice areas - Kitchen/Dining area which was cheerful and lovely and the fully functional kitchen was perfect (dishes, cooking equipment, etc)
Living room - cozy and warm - cable TV, wifi... we loved sitting there.
Bedroom - also cozy... bed is great and everything you need for storage and a good sleep is there.
Bathroom - huge with two sinks, stacked washer/dryer, great shower.

We fell in love with Santa Fe and will make it a regular getaway destination.
And at the reasonable price for Casita Artista and it's great amenities, we know where we can stay!

COZY CASITA!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a very comfortable stay at Casita Artista. The location is as advertised and we found it easy to get to both central Santa Fe and outlying areas. The casita itself is well appointed and had all of the amenities we expected and needed. The kitchen is a great space for centralizing and staging activities as well as preparing and enjoying food. One of our favorite spaces was the porch and courtyard, a great place to sit and enjoy the Santa Fe atmosphere. The bed was comfortable and we had the quiet and privacy needed for great getaway rest. The owners have put extra energy into giving the casita quite a bit of character and a feeling of home. I recommend this rental to anyone who's looking to have their lodging be what it is supposed to be rather than an unexpected vacation drama. We had everything we needed, nothing was in disrepair or not working and here and there were extra touches that seemed to make our stay even more enjoyable. Worthy of special mention for fireplace lovers; there's two, and they both work great!
