Guestbook comments from the owner
We LOVED our stay here. Your casita is a gem and we enjoyed it very much. We will certainly be back to Santa Fe and if I had a clue about when that would be I'd be booking with you now.

We are a retired couple enjoying the artistic atomosphere, superb weather, mountain air, hiking, biking and world class restaurants in incredibly beautiful surroundings.

Nancy Alexander purchased this house in 2010

The Santa Fe weather, outdoor living, the majestic mountains, the beautiful sky, artistic atmosphere and excellent restaurants are all part of our choice of location.

We enjoy the views, the portals and the hiking trails. We have the unique combination of a feeling of country living combined with close access to the city amenities.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5
Our 2nd year at the casita. Loved it. A month just doesn't seem long enough. Had many chats with owners Peter & Nancy. Great people. My husband loves the kitchen, lot of prep space, and a gas stove! Good start for a bike ride down Canyon Road and into the Plaza. The casita is private and quiet. important for a relaxing stay in a busy town like Santa Fe. We have our booking for next year already, and probably will do for many year to come. We have been coming to Santa Fe for over 20 years. We really love this place.............so should you.!!!!

Great temporary home in Santa Fe!

  • 5 of 5
This rental is spacious and modern, conveniently located to both Dale Ball trails and to town (the latter is a longish walk, but doable and easily biked). We liked the combination of newly built but in the traditional Santa Fe style; as well as feeling close in yet having a bit of country! We enjoyed the owner's dogs and especially her great hospitality. She brought fresh apricots, made sure we had easy access to a grill when I mentioned it, and did everything possible to assure a wonderful stay. We'll definitely be back and I hope my good words don't mean there won't be room at the inn!!

Great place

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the casita last May and I stayed there the previous October. The place is a wonderfully quiet, well appointed, comfortable place. We needed to relax in a place with lots of privacy, close to but not in the middle of town and this was just perfect for us. It has a wonderful kitchen and bathroom and there are lots of details that make it special. Loved the open plan kitchen, dining and living room. Great tile radiant floors. Lots of closet space. We loved being able to walk out the door and go for a hike in the surrounding hills. The owners were very kind and accomodating, wish we had more time to get to know them better. Great place to say in Santa Fe! We'll be back.

Owner's Response: We certainly enjoyed your visits and are looking forward to your next one in October. We also enjoy the combination of "close to center of town" combined with the tranquility of country surroundings. We are so glad that you enjoyed it.

Wonderful Santa Fe Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
I have just spent three glorious weeks at this casita. The hosts are lovely and considerate; they genuinely cared that I was enjoying my stay. There were many unexpected generosities. Thank you for these. The casita itself is as beautiful, authentic and unpretentious as the photos show, with great care given to quality, detail and comfort. Besides the fully equipped kitchen and comfy bed, the media taken care of, the adobe stayed nice and cool this summer. I happily spent many days here in privacy. I also loved hiking the trail steps away, walking to the galleries, picking fresh apricots. It was so nice to have hosts who love and respect their town, and whose enthusiasm for the area is contagious. They know all the "must-sees." I felt extremely safe and looked after during my stay. I highly recommend. Summer or winter, if you have me, I will be back!

This is a gated compound containing the owner's home and down a hill are 2 rental units. There is a sign in the bathroom "Fragile Plumbing" and a request that soiled toilet paper be deposited in a container provided and not in the toilet bowl. A walk to the Plaza is approximately 2.2 miles. The owners have both a large and a small dog. On occasion they roam the compound and at first seemed friendly. They never bothered us when we were in our car going in or out. However, one day when I entered the compound on foot the large dog barked furiously and threateningly at me. Luckily the owner appeared immediately and controlled the animal before it could approach me. Scary. If you want to have visitors, be aware of the only-one-parked-car per casita rule. No guest parking is permitted in the compound. The owner suggested a solution outside the compound which simply would not work for our elderly friends with problems. For the first 2 weeks of our stay, the other unit was not occupied and there was available parking in the compound, but the one car rule was enforced. We were unhappy not to be able to invite our friends into the casita. This situation actually ruined our stay in Santa Fe this year.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry to hear you were disappointed about the parking for your friends, I understood that we had worked out a reasonable alternative for their visit.
As listed, each rental has a private assigned parking spot inside the compound, assuring unobstructed passage to and from their front door, secure parking and room to maneuver. There are 4 additional spaces at the end of our driveway. I was surprised when you arrived and announced that you planned for your son to join you as an additional unexpected overnight guest and park his camper truck inside the compound. During your stay the other rental unit was rented to other guests, so that parking spot was reserved for their use.
You were asked not to flush sanitary items or other foreign objects due to the sewer pump, however you were told toilet paper was acceptable to flush I must add that I have had no prior complaints regarding our dogs from guests or neighbors.
I am truly sorry your stay was not all that you wanted.

The Perfect Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a month at this delightful casita. It has everything you could want. It is secluded, private and very quiet, yet it is in walking distance to Canyon Road & the Plaza. It is close to hiking trails and the Audubon Nature Park. The kitchen is a cook delight, with lots of prep and storage space. Everything about this casita is charming, including it's owners. The area is also great for riding your bike. We have already booked for next year.
