Light filled, spacious, air-conditioned Casa La Vista is located in a gated compound 3 blocks from the Santa Fe Plaza. Positioned halfway up the only hillside in downtown Santa Fe, its intimate balconys offer views of sunsets and mountain ranges as backdrop to the Cathedral-by-the-Plaza. Designed by an award winning architect/builder, Casa La Vista provides classic Southwest ambiance with its high viga-beam ceilings, sky lights, brick floors and kiva fireplace.
Guests are greeted by two levels of generous living/gathering spaces. The primary level comprises a well equipped kitchen, cozy dining area and spacious, comfortable living room. Bed and bath are tucked discretely behind the kitchen. Lower level showcases a spacious master bedroom suite with copious closet space and a large, sunken Mexican tiled bath/shower that looks out onto a very private, well-maintained garden.
Sleeping accommodations include a king bed in the master bedroom, a choice of king or two twin beds in the second bedroom, and (for children under 18) a large sleeper-sofa in the living room.
With its privacy, spaciousness and convenient location, Casa La Vista offers a view of the Southwest you'll want to return to again and again.

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 other 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 historic Santa Fe and the glories of our Southwest landscape are bundled into one. Our fascinating guests keep coming back and are now friends. We'll never move!
CASA LA VISTA is one of our eight evocative vacation rental homes located within the same city block. Situated just three short blocks northeast of the historic heart of Santa Fe--with its Plaza--these homes can accommodate up to 38 guests. As such our Colorful Santa Fe homes are a favorite for family reunions, weddings, and other celebratory occasions. Please contact us to help us fit our accommodations to your preferences and needs.
