Santa Fe House Rental Photos and Description

Quiet and Close to Key Sites: 2 Bed 2 Bath Adobe in Historic Eastside

Experience this authentic Santa Fe home on spectacular Garcia Street in the historic Eastside Santa Fe neighborhood. Nearby trails take you quickly to Canyon Road galleries, the downtown Plaza (less than a mile), the Capitol and Railroad districts. Smell the fresh mountain air and hear the Cathedral bells as you relax in the front or back portals.

This two -bedroom two-bath adobe is perfect for couples or a family or a group of friends exploring Santa Fe's many riches.

This renovated home is a sophisticated blend of contemporary and traditional Santa Fe, bringing casual elegance throughout. The home features beautiful hardwood floors, original thick adobe walls, and viga ceilings. Decorated with exquisite New Mexico art (both Spanish and Pueblo style) as well as traditional and contemporary furnishings, you'll be in Santa Fe style in no time.

Refrigerated air-conditioning, state-of-the-art HD flat-screen television (with basic cable, Apple TV and Xbox), wireless internet, allow you to ease into perfect relaxation, with every modern convenience.

The large living room features a welcoming corner Kiva fireplace. The plush red leather sofa turns into a Temper-pedic queen bed ideal for two. You'll enjoy the room's light and serenity as you relax by the fire.

The kitchen is well-equipped with Elba gas range and Sub-Zero refrigerator, Keurig coffee-maker, granite counters, dishwasher, and all the accoutrements to handle gourmet at-home cooking. Enjoy outside grilling with new Weber gas grill.

The separate dining room is casually appointed with a beautiful round dining table that easily seats four or can expand into a larger buffet. You may also enjoy dining in the rear portal with it’s comfortable patio table and chairs.

The light-filled large master bedroom includes a king bed and ‘en-suite’ master bathroom of glass, stone, and marble, with a walk-in glass shower. Also, there is a large walk-in master closet with plenty of shelving and drawers. You can lounge with your morning coffee and paper in the private patio just off the master bedroom bath.

The ample guest bedroom has two extra-long twin beds that can be transformed into a king bed - just let me know how you want it. In the second bathroom, sink into an extra-deep whirlpool spa bathtub for those long bubbling tub soaks after a day of exploring, hiking or skiing.

Excellent bedding: The beds are top end Sealy Posturepedic Optima and Restoration Hardware/Hotel Collection bedding have been selected for your comfort and enjoyment.

Near both bedrooms is a laundry room with energy-efficient washer and dryer. There is a basement to store your skis, bicycles, luggage, and other items.

The home provides two ample parking spots on either side of the home.

A perfect home to enjoy with friends and family the Historic Eastside and old Santa Fe!

Pets with prior agreement and additional fee depending on length of stay. The home's backportal/yard is completely enclosed.

Note that under Santa Fe's short term rental agreement, I have to charge additional 7% tax.

Also please tell me the size of your party and your purpose for traveling to Santa Fe.

Let me know if you have questions.

About Fran

I grew up in Santa Fe and attended the nearby 'Garcia St. Club' as a young girl. I've always loved this part of Santa Fe and so pleased to own this authentic, yet modern, adobe. I left New Mexico to attend Stanford University in California and have lived in the Bay Area since, now residing in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco.

In the Bay Area I'm a veteran of several Internet start-ups most notably Match and TRUSTe (privacy solutions). In San Francisco, I often rent my home and my guests invariably remark on its comfort, style and art. I hope you will will feel the same at my house on Garcia St.

Fran purchased this house in 2013

Why Fran chose Santa Fe

To me, Garcia St. is quintessentially Santa Fe. Beautiful homes and 'compounds' adorn both sides of the long boulevard as it climbs toward the Santa Fe foothills. My property is nestled in a historic compound with an exceptional setting and location.

When you enter the quiet lane and you will immediately feel the serenity of the natural peace and quiet and take in the fresh mountain air.

On foot (and through the secret shortcut) you can easily explore the old adobe filled neighborhoods, jaunt over to Museum Hill, take an art amble on Canyon Road, and go to the historic Plaza - less than a mile - for the many restaurants and entertainment options.

During the winter, easy access up to the Santa Fe ski area (16 miles).

Inside: The home is quiet, warm and comfortable with all the authentic Santa Fe features you'd want: Viga ceilings, Kiva fireplace, hardwood floors and thick adobe walls. Excellent New Mexican art!

What makes this house unique

In addition to the incredible location and setting, this home offers air conditioning, updated kitchen and bathrooms, large outside portal in back and private portal off master bedroom. The home is expertly decorated and includes all the conveniences you want including a gourmet 's kitchen with everything you might need. Check out the incredible New Mexico art (and a bit of San Francisco too).

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I rented this home for ourselves and another couple. We came in on motorcycles and the location was just perfect for numerous reasons: the motorcycles were in a safe location that was truly off the beaten path but we could all walk to the most desirable areas in downtown Santa Fe. We walked to the Plaza, down Canyon Road to art galleries and to El Farol for tapas and live music. The other couple loved the guitar and played every night, what a unique addition!

The home itself is wonderfully outfitted with new and modern appliances and remodeled to perfection with granite countertops and tile floors, new lighting and fixtures. The other couple had never experienced adobe construction and were amazed at how cool the house kept...we got to teach them a little about the hard trowel plaster walls inside that help keep it cool but are also beyond gorgeous.

On return from staying in the home, we went out and purchased the exact same bed for ourselves...we have been hunting a great mattress for years!! Thanks so much for the location, comfort and beauty of your home. We will definitely come back and stay.

Time in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Santa Fe. We loved all galleries, canyon road, downtown and restaurants. Staying at Gorgeous on Garcia was a perfect location and a very nice place. It was well- stocked and comfortable. Owner answered any questions quickly. Home is in a private. Area so when we came the first night late ,we had difficulty finding it.

We would definitely rent here if we return.

This is a very comfortable and clean home with fully stocked kitchen. The beds were very comfortable and the washing machine and dryer were very helpful. Close to the Plaza and quiet. Fran was available when we needed her to answer a question on Saturday night. We definitely plan on staying here again next year on our annual trip to Santa Fe.

Magical stay in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time exploring the joys of Santa Fe in the winter - in large part due to Fran's wonderful accommodations.

I would say the space is even nicer than the pictures portray (and the photos are pretty darn good). It's got great light and a mix of a modern and earthy feel.

The house was very clean and beautifully appointed with cozy beds and bedding, inviting living room furniture, an incredible fireplace and well-stocked kitchen.

We had 3 adults (1 disabled) and the space and layout worked quite well - plenty of room for cooking and gathering together and privacy when needed. The place is all one-level, which was perfect for my disabled parent.

The location was ideal. It was an easy, pretty walk to Canyon Road and the heart of downtown (plaza etc), even on a snowy day. Being tucked away on a smaller road provides a real sense of peace and quiet yet the major roads that take you throughout the city and beyond are very close by. We made it up into the mountains (by car) for snowshoeing in about 20 min.

Last but not least, Fran was very accessible when we needed to contact her about a couple of questions during our stay.

All in all we had a fabulous experience! We definitely hope to stay here again!
