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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for taking the time to sit with us and give us some guidance on how to experience Santa Fe. Thank you, too, for providing a warm and loving place to stay.
Sir Dr. Russell Betts ('Russ') has lived and worked most of his professional life in Asia, the South Pacific, and Europe addressing issues relating to social, economic and political change. Now calling Santa Fe 'home,' Russ brings to Colorful Santa Fe his world-traveler perspective: comfortable, engaging lodgings to enliven cross-cultural worldviews.
Noel Bennett has lived most of her life in the Southwest. She is an abstract artist; her paintings grace the lobbies of several Santa Fe's banks. In past years Noel lived with the Navajo for eight years and authored nine books on Navajo weaving, history and culture. Noel brings to Colorful Santa Fe a well-honed sense of color and unique perspectives on native world-views.....
Together we welcome the opportunity of hosting you in Colorful Santa Fe!
Years ago we hand-built a now somewhat-celebrated, environmental strawbale home in the Jemez Mountains above Santa Fe. Ten years ago we decided to purchase an in-town pied a'terre--just a small gem-of-a-place in which we could overnight during shopping trips in Santa Fe. Wanting to get the right place in the right location, we engaged in an eight month exhaustive search and ended up purchasing--not one--but two adobe homes in this historic neighborhood just 3 blocks from the Plaza. They became our first guest homes. Now, in addition to living in this same neighborhood, we manage 8 guesthomes in the same residential block. Why were we so seduced by this neighborhood? In short, it is partway up the ONLY knoll close to the Plaza. So from within any of our guesthomes there is a constant sense of place: Our over-the-roof-top-views are of the historic Santa Fe Cathedral against a backdrop of mountain ranges and glorious sunsets. AND WITHIN 4-5 WALKING MINUTES WE ARE DOWNTOWN--RIGHT IN THE VERY HEART OF OLD SANTA FE. Here the glories of historic Santa Fe and our Southwest landscape are bundled into one. Our fascinating guests keep coming back and are now friends. We'll never move!
