CASA GALERIA: MAGICAL, SOULFUL, ARTFUL - 2 BEDROOM - 2 BLOCK STROLL TO PLAZA

Santa Fe House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Permit #: 11-00104711

Located in an old residential neighborhood and perched a half-block up the hill overlooking historic Santa Fe, this authentic adobe home is a bit over two blocks from both The Plaza and the new Convention Center.

To be in Casa Galeria is to be in a work of art surrounded by 18' thick color-filled adobe walls, 1200 square feet of brick and saltillo tile floors, museum quality paintings, Southwest-international furnishings, and antiques from around the world. This two bedroom/one bath home has the extra appeal of separate built-in vanity/sinks in each bedroom.

The living room has--amidst its galeria of art--a small traditional kiva fireplace as well as an elegant Tree-of-Life hearth. Intimate dining room features an old Indian corner cabinet. Antique hand-carved doors are from Morocco and Old Mexico.

Everywhere, in-and-around, is the soulful adobe charm of quiet Old Santa Fe.

As you stroll through Santa Fe's best galleries, museums and shops, keep your eye on the sky; in two short blocks you can be home in time for a magical margarita-and-salsa sunset.

Lovely, Charming and Comfy

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I spent 9 nights at Casa Galeria. It was perfect, more than met our expectations based on the listing and great as a base for exploring Santa Fe and the surrounding areas. It's a quick walk to the plaza but the house is in a quiet and pretty location with lots of space and privacy. The beds were comfy with nice bedding and the house was very clean, cozy, with beautiful original artwork throughout, and all the amenities. We would definitely want to stay here again.

Love at First Sight

  • 5 of 5
Casa Galeria felt like home the second we walked in the door. It's just charming, cozy, clean and beautifully decorated. It was a chilly week, so we appreciated the heat in the living room and both bedrooms. We would definitely recommend this home and will try to stay again.

We loved this charming home in a great location

  • 5 of 5
We loved our time at Casa Galeria. It felt like our private home in Santa Fe. The staff at ColorfulSantaFe were very professional and I can recommend them without hesitation. If you book with them, you can proceed with confidence, knowing that they are trustworthy and helpful and that their properties are first class. We wanted a smaller home (we had three people) and Casa Galeria filled the bill perfectly. We loved the location. It was very quiet. The decor is traditional southwestern, enhanced by the art and the lighting. The home was clean and well maintained. The photos on the site accurately depict the accommodation. The beds are comfortable and the bedrooms are very quiet, and having sinks in each bedroom is a wonderful amenity. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could want, including herbs and spices (although it is a little congested). There is an onsite laundry that we loved having. Internet access is easy and fast. We will gladly stay here again and will recommend ColorfulSantaFe to friends and family. If you stay here, make sure you visit the State Capitol. The art displays there are amazing. We also loved the galleries on Canyon Road.

More than Comfortable and more than Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
What a great time and a great place. The information and description provided is less than what you really get. This is a great home. A great place to stay. So very comfortable. We were there during the coldest part of the year with the night time temps for a couple of days in the negative numbers. Despite the cold temps, the kiva and gas Tree of life gas hearth along with the well built adobe structure kept the entire house warm and comfortable. Despite the cold temps, we were still able to walk to the plaza and surrounding are and enjoy the sites of Santa Fe.

Not only was the house great, but so was the customer service. We were met promptly when we arrived. Time was spent discussing the house and all that it had to offer. We were impressed with the customer service and the house.

Thank you for sharing your home with us.

We are looking forward to another visit in the near future in this very same home.

My new home away from home...a beautiful restful retreat...

  • 5 of 5
I am a writer by profession, and I find it hard to adequately express what a magical experience I had at Casa Galerie. The interior spaces were cozy and beautifully decorated in the traditional warm New Mexican colors of ochre and siena that I am accustomed to. Thoughtful and artful touches were everywhere -- in the bed linens, the pillows, the furniture, and Noel's inspired and beautiful paintings. I lit a fire every morn and eve in the lovely kiva. But you know that the space is perfect when I was only one-two blocks from the finest restaurants in the Plaza...and I often choose to simply pour myself a cup of coffee or glass of wine... and sit by the fire and bask in the warmth and beauty of my surroundings. The full kitchen allowed me to provision at nearby Whole Foods with ease. This is a perfect place: cozy enough for one person (which I was for this travel experience) or roomy enough for up to four (as there were king size beds in both rooms and, although there was a small bathroom, each bedroom had sinks and mirrors). Off street parking, plus comfortable and private outdoor spaces (a table, chairs, umbrella and grill) are all included. But it was the warm welcome and continued impeccable service and attention to detail by Noel, Russ and Krista that will bring me back to Casa Galerie time and time again in the future. I can't wait to return...and have truly found my home away from home. Brava!

Just wonderful!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't be more pleased with our experience in Santa Fe and our stay at Casa Galeria. The look and feel of this adorable casita was exactly what we were looking for. Quiet, secluded, authentic and romantic for sure!!! The location was perfect. Even though it's right in the middle of a residential neighborhood just a block or two from the Plaza, the area was extremely quiet and quaint, just what we were looking for. The shopping and dining on The Plaza were top notch. Pasqual's is a must, must, must! as well as margaritas at Maria's, The Shed and many others. The salted caramel gelato at Mu Du Noodles is heavenly!! The hosts, Noel and Russ, are such easy-going, warm and inviting people. If we ever go back we will be asking them to go out to dinner with us!!!! We truly felt like we had the full "Santa Fe" experience by staying at Casa Galeria. Loved it!!!
