I own this one property in Santa Fe which has been my home for decades. I love my street and neighborhood and have happy memories of my children playing ball in the quiet streets. I have seen the fruit trees grow from little slips into mature giants producing cherries, apricots, peaches many years. I retired from teaching French in a local high school - then, since beginning to rent my casita, I have enjoyed meeting people from many countries. My guest book/scrap book is full of their photos, mementos and the stamps of their foreign countries. Tiling the bath, kitchen and floors myself was satisfying. My grand daughter says I'm married to my garden - I do work on it!

The Owner purchased this house in 1971

I moved here to be near the old center of this historic town.

Casita du soleil is six-tenths of a mile from the Plaza - a flat walk on quiet streets. Three tiny blocks to Sage Bakery, 5 tiny blocks to Whole Foods.

A few minutes to Railyard District of galleries, restaurants, SF Farmers' Market. Tranquility in the middle of everything.

We arrived in Santa Fe at 23:00, tired after a long drive from the west that was made even longer by a 2 hour delay due to construction and a truck that had flipped over and caught fire. We knew upon arrival that the casita was going to be perfect for us. The outdoor light softly illuminated the enclosed patio and its surroundings—the fruit trees and bushes in full blossom, the covered swing for two, the decorative table and chairs inviting morning coffee for two, the terra cotta of the adobe abode itself—had an immediate calming effect that would pervade our two weeks’ stay. As we stepped into the casita we felt we were “chez nous”. Although the photos on the website accurately portray the casita indoors—the living room (desk, bookshelves, futon/couch, satellite flat screen TV) merging into the slightly raised dining area, with country-style kitchen to the left, all to be soon shone upon by the natural morning light from the skylights—somehow just being there transformed it into something more than just an adobe. We sensed its history and life-energy. Our two weeks’ stay would confirm our initial impressions.
Diana was the hostess par excellence—possessing the spirit of kindness, intuitive as to our needs, guiding us towards our desired destinations and activities, willing to share a part of herself if invited and always respectful of our privacy. A truly good soul. Et n’oublions pas que notre inestimable hôtesse placote dans la langue de Molière, une véritable trouvaille précieuse dans le désert Nouveau-Mexicain.
Aside from possessing all the comforts and amenities of a home, the casita houses every form of book, magazine, pamphlet and written material one would need to find out what do or where to go in Sante Fe and environs, including all the awesome hikes to pursue. The great plus is that you can walk to the museums, book stores, cafés, restaurants, theatres, art galleries and shops. The most glorious hikes (and we did many) are only a short drive away. But don’t let a few extra miles keep you from great hikes which are extensively described in the hiking books in the casita—Bandolier National Monument including Tsankawi heritage trail, the Tent Rocks and the Kitchen Mesa connected to Georgia O’Keefe’s favourite haunt, the Ghost Ranch.
To say that we highly recommend Diana’s Casita du Soleil would be a gross understatement as you can see from the few words above. Go and find out for yourself. You will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Susan and Rob: I knew you were literary when you wrote 2 pages of poetry for my guest book! Thanks so much for your generous review which could become a novel!

Casita Du Soleil - Historic, Downtown, Old Santa Fe

Casita Du Soleil is a perfect "get away" location for a couple or someone traveling solo. It truly is located within walking distance of most of Santa Fe's attractions. Plus, there is the added value of being in a lovely, walkable neighborhood. The private patio is a perfect spot for morning coffee or a late afternoon glass of wine. For those of you who appreciate a fine garden setting, you will enjoy the surrounding area and flower-lined pathway to your door. Just a short walk to the Railyard will offer you a fine shopping experience at the Santa Fe Farmer's Market, then you can prepare your locally grown meals in the kitchen complete with all utensils. This sweet little casita offers a tranquil, quiet retreat for anyone wishing to renew and rejuvinate.

Wonderful place to stay! Diana could not have been nicer. She even drove me to a gallery opening in a nearby house. Only a few minutes walk from downtown. Will stay here again.

Comfortable Casita

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The casita was small, but well laid out, comfortable, and we had everything we needed. We especially enjoyed and appreciated the outdoor patio space. We would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words, Ann. I would like to add that these guests stayed in the apartment part of the property, not the casita which is larger and has its own fenced patio.

Un agréable endroit et une hôtesse terriblement serviable

La Casita du Soleil est une petite maison très confortable avec un petit jardin au calme. Elle se compose d'une grande pièce avec un canapé double, une table et 4 chaises ainsi que d'une cuisine équipée. Une porte donne accès à la chambre double et à la salle de bains/WC. L'endroit est très propre et l'espace est largement suffisant pour que tout le monde s'y sente à l'aise. Diane l'hôtesse, qui parle français, est une personne exceptionnellement serviable et de très bons conseils. Elle est très disponible et vous se tient à votre disposition pour rendre votre séjour agréable. Nous conseillons vivement cet endroit à tous nos amis.
