Santa Fe House Rental Photos and Description

New 5 bedroom/4 bath, sleeps 15, on Palace Ave! a short walk to the Plaza!

Casa Bonita is the largest New luxury vacation home in the Historical District and is on Palace Ave a short walk to the famous Plaza and Canyon Road. Palace Ave. got its name from Spanish times around 1610 and the fact that the Palace of the Governors is on the Plaza and on Palace Ave.. Casa Bonita is a 8 - 10 minute walk to everything you came to Santa Fe for. Most 5 bedroom homes are 30-40 minute drive out of town! This totally remodeled new home with its 13 foot beamed ceilings,hand plastered walls and granite kitchen is perfect for large groups and reunions. Casa Bonita comfortably accommodates up to 15 people with 5 bedrooms,4 bathrooms, a queen sofa sleeper and large couch and a private in door hot tub. This vacation rental house makes Santa Fe the perfect vacation spot!

Casa Bonita is ideally located. Whatever you choose to do; you can stroll to museums, galleries, churches, restaurants, go shopping, or the grocery store. In the winter, ski 1/2 hour drive up the mountain at ski Santa Fe, or go sledding in the park. Come home and relax in the big bubbling hot tub with foot massage jets before you gather for drinks on the front patio. You can save $200-$1000 per day by cooking in our beautiful granite kitchen rather than staying at a hotel and eating at restaurants

Casa Bonita has 5 bedrooms. There are 2 king bedrooms, 2 Queen bedrooms and a down stairs bedroom with 2 double beds. There is also a queen sofa sleeper and a large couch in the great room. We can comfortable sleep 15 people. There are 4 bathrooms in Casa Bonita, two of which are en suite. We have original art by New Mexican artists and richly colored Oriental rugs that brighten our beautiful oak floors. We also have a large wood fireplace and sitting area in the great room that adds ambience in the winter. Everything is new!

We have 4 flat panel TV's. There is a 55 inch flat panel HDTV in the great room. There are 3 - 40 inch flat panels TV's in 3 bedrooms. Two are in the up stairs king bedrooms and one in the downstairs bedroom. There are music CD's, and a collection of movie DVD's. We also have a large collection of board games.

Casa Bonita is approximately 3600 square feet, plus the large front portal. Our spacious great room has 13 foot ceilings, huge beams and corbels. The large open granite kitchen is beautiful and large enough for multiple cooks to prepare elegant meals on our large gas cook top and in our double oven! Every thing is new! The kitchen is fully equipped with cooking utensils, pots and pans, place mats, and lots of plates and glasses.The laundry room has a washer and dryer, detergent, ironing board and iron.

Come home and relax in our big bubbling hot tub before you gather for drinks on our beautiful breezy portal. You can then barbecue on our gas grill and dine outside in our private walled garden.

We are on one of the most famous streets in Santa Fe, Palace Ave! A short walk to everything! We are a short walk from the La Posada Hotel and their famous restaurant, El Fugo! La Posada is also on Palace Ave. If you are attending a wedding at La Posada stay at Casa Bonita and save!

Fun Things to do while in Santa Fe: Casa Bonita is on the road to the ski basin for the skiers and snow boarders. Santa Fe Ski Basin is 20- 30 minutes from Casa Bonita.

Other activities you can take advantage of in the area include hiking, rock climbing, golfing, fishing, hunting, wildlife viewing, river rafting and kayaking on the Rio Grande, horseback riding, shopping, restaurants, museums, downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, and sledding. We love to go to the Bandelier National Cliff Dwellings site which is 45 minutes from Santa Fe. There are over a hundred cliff dwellings at Bandelier dating back a thousand years. You can climb ladders to a number of the cliff dwellings!

The annual Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque in October is a bucket list experience! You arrive just before the sunrise and watch over 100 hot air balloons take off!

You can also drive to Taos and ride in a hot air balloon into the Gorge, land on the river and take off! Another bucket list must do!

We also enjoy taking the Cumbres and Tolec Scenic Train from Chama to Osier in the summer. It is an old classic steam train from the mining and logging days. We recommend lunch at Osier and then a return on the train to Chama. The lunch at Osier is great! It is a day long trip and a lot of fun. The views are stunning. We have seen large herds of Elk while riding the train. Unlike the Silverado, Colorado train you are up high with great views!

Restaurants: We have the best location in Santa Fe and are a 8-10 minute walk to the famous Plaza and Canyon Road. There are many art galleries on Canyon Road. If you come out the front door of Casa Bonita and turn left and walk a half block you are at the Santa Fe River. You can walk across the bridge to the Compound Restaurant for dinner. It takes about 10 minutes. If you continue past the Compound you are on Canyon Road and a 5 minute walk to El Farol Restaurant. These are two of our favorite Santa Fe Restaurants. El Farol is the oldest restaurant in Santa Fe. The southwestern food is the best I have ever had!

There are also lots of galleries on Canyon Road which are fun to stroll through.

If you come out the front door and go down Palace Ave. you are a 8-10 minute walk to the Shed Restaurant. They have great lunches and dinners. If you continue down Palace Ave. you enter the Famous Plaza which has lots of galleries and several great restaurants. For breakfast we suggest the Plaza Cafe. It has a great menu.

Wineries & Casinos: There are numerous Wineries and Casinos near Santa Fe. As you leave Santa Fe and head north towards Taos there are a number of Casinos & wineries/ tasting rooms along the highway. You can spend a fun day just stopping at the tasting rooms and trying their wines and enjoying the Casinos. The Casinos have full Las Vegas style gambling and shows!

In the summer there is the world famous Santa Fe Opera. It is a 15 minute drive from Casa Bonita. The Operas are some of the best in the country!

You can also go rafting on the Rio Grand during the summer. There are several rafting companies in Santa Fe to choose from.
