Santa Fe House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

Enjoy charm, comfort and convenience when you visit Casa de la Luz ('House of Light'). This beautiful home on a lovely, quiet hill is just 7 blocks from the Santa Fe Plaza. This house boasts all the features of a classic adobe (vigas, beams, latillas, hand-troweled plastered walls, Saltillo tile, Mexican tile backslashes and accents, tin work and old wooden doors) however it feels light and modern, unlike many traditional homes. Perhaps its most unique aspect is the combination of a serene, peaceful setting in such close proximity to the color and excitement of downtown Santa Fe. What a pleasure to stroll down the hill to shop, dine and sight-see, with the option of returning to your quiet retreat whenever you tire of the bustle. And none of the hassle of driving or parking!

The house is decorated with original local art and hand crafted furnishings, and offers amenities for every season. In winter, get cozy by the wood burning fireplace, and in the warmer months, enjoy the many inviting outdoor spaces, including a balcony with wisteria trellis, a garden deck and a private walled terrace.

This newer-construction adobe boasts a great floor plan. The living room with fireplace, dining area and kitchen all open on to one another. These rooms, along with the mater bedroom with king size bed and full bath are on the first floor. On the lower level, there is a large open suite, including a sleeping alcove with king bed, full bathroom and sitting area opening onto a private garden. An extra queen size sleeper sofa is provided both upstairs and down for extra guests or children.

With 1600 square feet, the home is large enough to offer privacy for all without losing its intimate feel. Amenities include 3 flat-screen T.V.'s with cable, high-speed wireless internet, dishwasher, washer, dryer and air-conditioning. There is a one car garage with parking available for a second car. New carpet and freshly painted November 2012.

Special Note: This property has a permit from the City of Santa Fe for short-term rentals, Permit # 11-00104264. Enjoy the peace of mind that your rental will not be interrupted by the City as it enforces against properties that do not have City permits.

A pair of world travelers, we fell in love with Santa Fe many years ago. Between stints living in Asia, we spent as much time as possible in New Mexico. When we moved to Boulder, Colorado, ten years ago, we were able to fulfill our dream of buying a home in Santa Fe. We have enjoyed creating a space that is classic, stylish and comfortable, and that sits in close proximity to all that Santa Fe has to offer.

Katherine Ward purchased this house in 2002

We chose this historic Eastside neighborhood for its charm and atmosphere, as well as its proximity to downtown. Here, you can wander the lovely back lanes and look for the 1920 Cross of the Martyrs, located at the top of Rosario Hill on Paseo de la Loma (Accessible by stairs from Paseo de la Loma). If you climb the wooden steps to the hill where the cross stands, you will see the following history inscribed on a plaque: In 1598 a group of Spanish colonists, led by Juan de Onate of Zacatecas, Mexico, established a settlement along the banks of the Rio Grande north of present-day Espanola. In 1610 Governor Pedro de Peralta relocated the capital of the province to Santa Fe. Between 1610 and 1680, colonists moved into New Mexico, living primarily along the Rio Grande. Franciscan friars established missions at most of the Indian pueblos. Life was not always peaceful. In order to regain control of their homeland, in 1680, many pueblo people, led by Pope', a San Juan Indian, unitedto drive the colonists out. This action became what is known as the Pueblo Revolt. At this point, the rest of the settlers fled south to El Paso del Norte. It was not until 1693 that the province was peacefully resettled under the leadership of Governor Diego de Vargas.

BEAUTIFUL AND RESTFUL PLACE AND THE OWNER WAS AWESOME

  • 5 of 5
My personal assistant and I stayed here after a convention in Arizona for some R&R and loved this house. It's on two levels with the master bedroom on the first floor and a bedroom for four (including a futon) in the downstairs. Made for lots of private space for the two of us to unwind.

When we arrived, we didn't realize the cooling system hadn't been turned on, but after contacting the owner, she had the handyman out to fix it and that made for a much more comfortable stay.

But what I loved most about the owner, Katherine, is that when I left my laptop behind (and only discovered it missing when I got to the airport too late to go back), she put out a call to a friend who I then made arrangements with to go to the house to retrieve it and mail it back to me. I'm a writer and the thought of losing my laptop was very stressful, but she was almost as concerned as I was and I appreciated her caring on my behalf.

I did some great writing on the deck off the dining room area and then when the sun got in my eyes, I moved to the secluded patio between the outer adobe wall and the house. There was also a third area for sitting outside. The back of the house is within view of other houses, but the front was very private.

I'm already planning a return trip with my mother and daughter either later this year or early next year and will definitely be looking for a booking here. Simply a delight to find such an oasis when you need an escape.

PERFECT FOR A GIRLFRIENDS WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
The house worked very well for us, a group of 7 women. The house is well maintained and
comfortably furnished. The only glitch in our stay was that the heat went out on the first day but the handyman quickly came over and fixed the problem.
The location is great, easy to get to most everywhere quickly. This is a very nice house and the owner was great!

LOVELY RENTAL IN EXCELLENT LOCTION

  • 5 of 5
Well-furnished, very comfortable rental within walking distance of the Plaza, Railyard and Canyon Road. The pictures accurately show the house and it was very clean and well-maintained. The second bedroom with it's own sitting area and bathroom are separate from the main living area and would be perfect for two couples, or one couple who are expecting company. Would highly recommend the property for anyone visiting Santa Fe.

PERFECT FOR THE HOLIDAYS

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying here for the week of Christmas; the house helped us feel we were really in Santa Fe with all of its SW accents. We loved the gathering space so our three grown sons could hang out with us, playing games, talking, watching videos, or singing together. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking, and we loved having a variety of tableware to choose from. Beds are very comfortable and cozy, and the bathrooms are spacious. Our son used your books with art and information about the area to choose some of our activities. We loved spending Christmas Eve here, walking along Canyon Road with its luminaria and farolitos; a wonderful sense of community festivity! We also enjoyed SF's Las Posadas tradition on Sunday. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us.

GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
This home was just what we needed! Comfortable and warm during a snowy get-away! We traveled with another couple...the downstairs was theirs and the upstairs bedroom ours... Worked perfectly! Quiet and Private. Close to everything. Good parking and the garage was a major perk.
