OASIS BY THE SANTA FE RIVER :: 4 BLKS TO PLAZA; 1 BLK TO CANYONRD

Santa Fe House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

CASA TIERRA (House from the Earth)

Casa Tierra is a newly renovated, authentic adobe Guest-home in a superb location 1 block north of Canyon Road and 4 blocks east of The Plaza. It is located along the Santa Fe River with its walking trails, lush foliage, and life-giving waters. From here the stroll to the center of town is flat, shaded and refreshing.

The walls of this 2 bedroom/2 bath adobe are mudded in the ancient ways of native peoples. It is this historic and lovely hand-applied earthen surface that lends the name: Casa Tierra - House from the Earth.

The authenticity of the adobe construction along with a centralized air conditioning/heating system assures year-round comfort.

Casa Tierra is tucked back off the road and entry is beneath a rare, 150-year-old Cedar-of-Lebanon Tree. Fenced on three sides and nestled among mature trees, outdoor spaces are private and inviting.

Inside this 1200 square foot home, a generous and comfortable living area encompasses fireplace, brick floors, a viga-beam ceiling and original museum quality art. The living room opens onto a granite topped kitchen with a six burner stove. Both bedrooms offer king-or-two-twin-bed sleeping options and each has its own bath with hand-painted Talavera tile.

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 and shows in her own Infinite Moment studio-gallery by appointment. 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!

Russ and Noël purchased this house in 2010

Years ago we hand-built a now somewhat-celebrated, environmental straw bale 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 an historic neighborhood just 3 blocks from the Plaza. They became our first guest homes and we settled into this same block to live. During our ten years of strolling Santa Fe streets, we fell in love with a dirt road along the Santa Fe river with cool trails and trickling waters. Suddenly this year and right there, an authentic, rare hand-mudded adobe became available for purchase. We knew instantly it was ours . . . to share with our many repeat guests and new friends as well. And so it came to be: Casa Tierra -- 1 block from Canyon Road and 4 1/2 flat, shady, refreshing blocks to the heart of OLD SANTA FE. An oasis made manifest.

The location of Casa Tierra is superb. One block away is the mile long promenade known as Canyon Road --studded with fine-art galleries, great restaurants, and the soulful historic adobe architecture that is quintessentially Santa Fe. Four blocks to the west is The Plaza -- the heart of downtown Santa Fe with its shopping, museums, convention center . . . and more fine-art galleries and great restaurants. Right out the front door is the living, sparkling, Santa Fe River--with its RiverWalk, shaded nature paths, picnic tables, and falls.

More than that....with it's authentic mudded exterior, folks walking by stop us all the time and ask us about Casa Tierra. We explain that several Santa Fe historians have told us that Casa Tierra is one of only six remaining fully mudded (adobe inside and out!!) homes left in Santa Fe. In short, Casa Tierra is a historic wonder.

HEAVEN ON EARTH!!!

Wow! What can I say about Casa Tierra! Ramell and I recently returned from spending several days in lovely Santa Fe. And we are already eagerly anticipating our return.

The photos on VRBO do no justice! As we entered the home, we were in awe. A lot of time and love went into the design of this place. Love the antique doors that were inspired from the owners' travels to such exotic locales as India. The bedrooms are very spacious with extremely comfortable beds and Noel (one of the owner's) vibrant artwork is displayed throughout the home. Although we didn't cook during our stay, we absolutely adore the open kitchen layout with top-of-the line stainless steel appliances. If you are interested in cooking during your stay, just bring the food! The owners have the cabinets filled with dishes, utensils and other necessities that will make your stay most comfortable.

It was nice to be able to return from a day out on the town and relax with a nice glass of wine by the gorgeous outside deck area. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful, yet we were within a very short walking distance to the famous Plaza area, where we could shop to our heart's content....which we did, by the way!

The hospitality provided by the owners was absolutely amazing. Noel greeted us the day of arrival and took the time to sit with us and go over her suggestions for local hang out spots. We absolutely love the huge binder she compiled which features maps and restaurant choices. It definitely came in handy.

We also enjoyed the lively conversation we had with Russ. I travel frequently and it was nice hearing him chat about his world travels and also his love for Santa Fe.

Casa Tierra exudes warmth and love. It was the perfect retreat for us. I highly recommend this for your vacation choice. And be sure to check out the owners' other Santa Fe vacation rentals! Thanks Noel and Russ for sharing your lovely home with us! Ramell and I not only found a new vacation spot, but we've gained two new friends. Looking forward to many more visits to Casa Tierra.

Ah-h-h, Casa Tierra.

Ah-h-h, Casa Tierra. You speak to our artistic side...
Comfortable. Homey. Beautiful. Perfect for two couples!
Two nights we knew (!) we couldn't find a restaurant as quiet and beautiful, so we "ate in" with a fire in the kiva fireplace.
Ah, Casa Tierra. We will always remember you!
