Santa Fe House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom divided between a 3BR main house and studio guest house

Experience authentic Santa Fe. Located very close to the Plaza and Canyon Road, Casa De Colores is a traditional Santa Fe adobe home featuring vigas in most rooms, latillas in an expansive kitchen, indoor and outdoor kiva fireplaces, portal and New Mexican accents throughout. The original date of construction is unknown but the house was extensively remodeled in 2006 with venetian plaster, in-floor radiant heat and kitchen upgrades. The main house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The casita is a studio with a small galley kitchen. Both houses have washer and dryer.

A portal spans the entire front of the house for cool summer evenings and morning coffee. An outdoor patio with kiva fireplace and barbecue off of the master bedroom is a guest favorite for outdoor meals. The yard is landscaped with xeric natives species, including chamisa, aspen and piñon. There are up to 4 off-street parking spots depending on the size of the vehicles.

The house is walking distance to the spa at La Posada, or a short drive to 10,000 Waves in the foothills of the Sangre De Cristo Mountains. It is about 30 minutes from the casa door to the lift at Ski Santa Fe.

About Leigh Plesniak

I grew up on the east coast in a suburban community of New York. I've been in the West since I attended graduate school in San Diego, where I now live with my family. I was a Chemistry & Biochemistry Professor at the University of San Diego for many years but retired to spend more time with my family and to develop science enrichment activities for K-12 grades.

Leigh Plesniak purchased this house in 2012

Why Leigh Plesniak chose Santa Fe

We have visited Santa Fe many times over the years as a family and I knew exactly where I wanted to buy a house. We are thrilled with this location. It's peaceful, has a rustic rural feel but we are minutes walking to the heart of Santa Fe, the plaza. We walk to restaurants, galleries and museums. We hike up the arroyo trails right out of the neighborhood into Ft. Marcy park. La Posada is nearby (0.5 mile) for a drink on the patio or a massage at the spa. We can take the shuttle to the Albuquerque airport or to the Opera from nearby the hotels.

What makes this house unique

Normally not an adventurous decorator, the Casa was finished with vibrant colors in the plaster walls. The colors gave me the license to be more playful with the art and furnishings. Our home is decorated with the art from a good friend's gallery in Albuquerque (Sumner & Dene) and from art that friends of ours have made. The natural burl edge kitchen table was crafted by a friend from a eucalyptus tree that was destined for the landfill, victim to a construction project in Rancho Santa Fe in San Diego County.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a great property. we booked it very last minute (one day notice), and both the owner and the management company made it simple. we had three couples - two stayed in the main house, one in the casita. everyone had their own bathroom. spent lots of time on the wonderful front porch. easy walk into town, but you feel as if you're staying in your own private villa. very welcoming place. thanks so much. - (Link to original review

Tasteful, roomy, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5
This charming adobe house has three bedrooms plus a one bedroom casita. The focal point of the house is probably the gorgeous kitchen. The enormous wooden kitchen table with plenty of chairs for everybody invites family members and friends to eat, chat, and play games together. The artwork and the custom furniture give the house an authentic feeling without it being kitschy. And radiant heat in the floors means your feet are never cold, even on cold days. There are plenty of glasses and plates and kitchen utensils, a dishwasher, and amenities in the house which show that the owners really do care if visitors have an enjoyable stay. It is a beautiful home, and very easy to relax and be comfortable in it and feel like you're really getting away from it all. And yet the interesting shops and restaurants of Santa Fe are an easy walking distance, making the location very very convenient. I recently stayed in this house with several girlfriends, and we had an amazing time and will definitely be back. Thank you very much to the owners, Leigh and Eric, for creating such a wonderful getaway house!

Great Santa Fe Home!

  • 4 of 5
Our small management team rented this house for our annual planning retreat. It was well equipped with a nice kitchen, outdoor grill and indoor/outdoor fireplaces. The art was very nice inside. It was a little difficult to fine but it's very conveniently located (walking distance) to Canyon Road art & restaurants and also most of the commercial areas downtown. I would not hesitate to rent this place again either for a business retreat or family/friends Santa Fe trip.

A Wonderful Place to Stay in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here while in Santa Fe for a family wedding. The property was delightful in all ways! It accommodated four couples very comfortably, with charming spaces both indoors and outside for us to enjoy. The property was exactly as described, and was clean and well-maintained. The kitchen was well-appointed, with high-end appliances, allowing us to easily prepare meals and feel right at home. The location was great, with the Plaza and Canyon Road very close by. The owner, Leigh, checked in to make sure all was going well while we were there, as did the property management company. We were sorry to see our time in this lovely home come to an end, and we look forward to coming back again!

Beautiful Property, walking distance to the plaza

  • 5 of 5
Very nice home, comfortable beds, and nice linens. The home was better than the pictures capture. Lovely grounds between the main home and guest home. Bathrooms were large and the master bathroom tub was amazing. We wanted to stay much longer, the home is very peaceful and quiet.
