CHARMING PRIVATE CASITA ON ACREAGE, IN TOWN! STUNNING VIEWS, AND PET

Santa Fe Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Darling One Bedroom, Kitchen, Jetted Tub At Foot Of Sun Mountain, Sunset Views

Nestled among nearly 3 acres of pinons at the foot of the sacred Sun Mountain, your casita beckons. Sunsets and sunrises greet you daily, with Sun mountain to your back only being about a 30 minute hike to the top. There you'll understand why people move to Santa Fe. A mile away is Museum Hill. A few blocks further are the art galleries, restaurants, and the Georgia O'Keefe Museum. Georgis spent her last years only a couple blocks from Sun Mountain Casita. After a day here, you'll understand why. It is the perfect quiet place to watch sunsets over the city and mountains after a day in the land of enchantment. Step into your jetted tub, grill some salmon, and enjoy a glass of wine while the Santa Fe light lingers on your private patio. Enjoy the bird feeders, flowers and the sounds of coyotes as the lights twinkle before you. The perfect retreat, Sun Mountain Casita will cast her gentle spell on you, beckoning you to return.

About Nancy or George Roberts

George grew up a missionary kid in Zimbabwe, and met Nancy in California. After raising two boys, they set out to find their perfect paradise, Santa Fe, although they call the world their home. Avid travelers, they have been to 75 countries. They are devotees of Argentine Tango, and love dogs of all kinds.

Nancy or George Roberts purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Nancy or George Roberts chose Santa Fe

The property is unusual as it is so close to downtown, yet on nearly 3 view acres. Most people say it is the best view they've seen in Santa Fe, and Sun Mountain is literally at your back door. Close to everything yet in a peaceful paradise, we felt completely blessed to be able to purchase this property, and now share it with you. The house was built in 1930, and the floors are old 18 in wide plank pine...a rarity now. Harold Littlefield built the place and we've done our best to restore it, and not change it much. We call it rustic elegance.

What makes this cottage unique

Well, to us and our friends, this property has soul, as soon as you turn in the long driveway, shaded by pinons. The views will take your breath away, as Santa Fe skies change each hour. You can watch summer storms come in and go out all across the valley, from Albuquerque to some say, Colorado. The living room floor has 18 inch wide boards from the 1930's and vigas across the living room ceiling. The Jotul fireplace heats the whole casita. Charm oozes from each room, with lovely original art, to the mosaic bathroom. Bird feeders are all around, and the curved walls of the patio drip with purple wisteria in the summer, framing other flowers. You won't want to leave!

Beauty Abounds

  • 5 of 5
This was our fourth visit to Santa Fe, and one of our best. After having stayed in hotels near the plaza (walking distance), I decided I wanted something that would give me the feeling of being in the desert, yet close to the plaza. I also wanted to stay in a abode that was original to Santa Fe. This casita was perfect. A 10 out of a 10. The views are spectacular, the air is so fragrant and fresh, and having doors and windows open in July was a treat for these Dallas, TX, folks. A very nice bonus for us: we could bring our little dog. He made friends with the owners' dogs right away. George and Nancy made our stay very pleasant, bringing over two chaise lounge chairs so we could gaze at the abundant stars at night. We enjoyed getting to hike out in the desert from the front door. There is a trail up the mountain and, also, one that goes done to the main road. We didn't hike the trail out to St. John's College, so we will add this to our list for our visit next time. My husband hiked the trail to the top a few times with his camera, and really enjoyed getting photos from this view. We were so close to everything in and around the plaza. Fabulous! We finally got to do happy hour at La Fonda at sunset on this trip, and you know what? Sunset happy hour at the casita was 100 X better!! We did see "our mountain", though, from the top of La Fonda. The air conditioner was only used when we went out and left our dog inside, since we needed to close the doors. When we were at the casita, I wanted the sweet, desert air to always surround me, so the AC was not on. Doors and windows were wide open. What a treat!! This casita will hold a special place in my heart, and I will be back. It is already calling my name.

Triple A View But Not As Expected

  • 3 of 5
This casita had breath taking views from every angle of the patio. The property was as described except for no a/c, so you had to leave the doors and windows open all the time. The owners provided a standing fan for the bedroom but it wasn't enough to be comfortable. The early mornings and late evenings were cool, but you couldn't stay in the house during the day. While no insects or bugs were noted, hot air and dust blew constantly. We had book 5 nights but only stayed 4 because of this problem. THIS LACK OF A/C SHOULD BE IN THE PROPERTY DESCRIPTION. If this wouldn't bother you, this is a great place. We were disappointed as we had traveled a long way and didn't enjoy our trip as much as we could have.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response. In 15 years living there, we have never felt the need for a/c, so didn't install it. Just now hearing about this, we have installed a/c. We wish you'd have spoken up sooner,as we are not mind readers. We want you to enjoy our city different! It is the desert, so can be a dusty place when the wind blows. Unfortunately, we cannot control the weather! April and May are our most windy months, and June can be warm up to the high 80's. We get rain during the summer months, but it does not last too long, and most people enjoy the midday wind, lightning, and rain, as the drama lasts about an hour, but can wreak havoc on outdoor lunch! Afterwards, the air is delicious, and clear...Santa Fe is known to have some of the cleanest air in the USA, which is why we leave our doors and windows open...but now realize it is not for everybody...Thanks for the clarification!
