Enjoy the beautiful summer and fall weather in the comfort of Casa Alissa! Relax and enjoy this peaceful and bright two bedroom adobe Casita located in the SOHO of Santa Fe in the Baca Street Art District, centrally located with easy access to all of Santa Fe. Within walking distance of galleries, artist studios, cafe's, parks, and stores in the Baca Street Art District of South Railyard Park. This lovely Casita is in a quiet neighborhood and situated right across the street from the Acequia Rail Trail. Walk or bike a mere 10-15 minutes along the Acequia Rail Trail into the North Railyard Shopping area, Farmers Market, downtown Santa Fe, museums, art galleries, micro-breweries, or to a network of trails throughout Santa Fe and the surrounding areas. Right around the corner from this Casita is Larragoite Park with lots of green space, tennis courts, basketball courts, playgrounds and a dog park area. Additionally, its close to a fitness center, indoor pool, shopping, entertainment, museums, and much, much, more due to its central location.
Enjoy local Baca Street activities such as glass-blowing lessons at Liquid Light Glass Studio with artist Elodie Holmes. Visit the pottery studio and galleries along Baca Street or grab a bite to eat at Counter Culture Cafe.
Optionally, you can choose to have a local chef come to the Casita and cook you a 'traditional New Mexican meal' while you enjoy margaritas and talk about your day. Local Santa Fe Chef Alma will delight you with home made tortillas, guacamole, enchiladas, and dessert or any meal of your choosing cooked right in the Casita while you relax. Please contact the owner if you are interested in a special dinner prior to booking. Times, dates, and costs are negotiated with the Chef.
Unwind over dinner on the private front porch or relax in the secluded back garden/patio area after a day of sight seeing in Santa Fe. Or just relax and curl up next to the kiva fireplace to enjoy a movie or read a book.

I have lived in Santa Fe since 2004. While I have spent 20+ years in other areas of New Mexico, Santa Fe is by far my favorite place in New Mexico due to the rich influences of the local cultures, the artists, and its laid back style! There is always something to do in Santa Fe!
Donna Jones White purchased this house in 2006
I bought this house due to its central location and ease of access to all of Santa Fe. Initially I bought it as a place for my children to live in while they worked in Santa Fe however with its easy access to downtown, museums, restaurants, and more we all fell in love with it. I especially like the Baca Street Art District with its easy going atmosphere, outdoor cafes, artist studios and galleries. If you want a taste of the real Santa Fe where the locals hang out, this is it. As Canyon Road and many areas of Santa Fe have gotten more and more expense, many artists have chosen to move to the Baca Street Art District and set up galleries and studios. Recently Santa Fe developed the Railyard Park with trails, studios, galleries, shops, and green space in the Baca Street Art District, so more and more artists are relocating to this area.
While staying at my property, I enjoy strolling down to the galleries for art openings, to the cafes for breakfast, or to the Acequia trail for a walk. Once on the Acequia trail, its an easy 10 minute walk or bike into North Railyard Park to the Santa Fe Farmers Market, more shopping, more art galleries, and fine dining. Top that all off with a little music and some brews from the local microbrewery and stroll or bike home!
Additionally, I always take my visiting family down the street to the Liquid Light Glass Studio for a glass-blowing lesson. Everyone always loves it, including the grandchildren!
Perfect stay. Darling casita. Cool neighborhood. Jody is super helpful and thoughtful. Would absolutely stay here again.
Jody is a very nice person has done a great job of decorating and providing the necessities in this lovely home. Would be nice to have a gas BBQ but not a big deal.
The laundry access is from the outside and the washer/dryer is situated right under the master bedroom of this unit. Tenants in the other unit on this property also have access to the washer/dryer and were doing their laundry at 10 p.m. one evening. We could clearly hear both the washer and dryer running while trying to sleep. Would suggest that tenants in the other unit be asked to refrain from using the laundry after a certain time.
I would agree with all of the postive comments in previous reviews. Jody has put so much thought into every detail in her home, and the result is a beautiful and comfortable place to stay. I don't think I have ever seen such a clean VRBO--it was immaculate. Jody has done such a professional job and that is a joy to experience.
One thing that might be helpful for people to know is that the twin beds seem smaller than normal twin beds. However they worked well. The King bed is very comfortable and it was so nice to hear the birds outside as we woke up--a very restful experience.
I also really liked the location. Some areas in Santa Fe are just a bit too precious for me, but this neighborhood had character (while feeling safe). It's also centrally located so getting anywhere is a breeze. We had a great time and I would recommend this spot highly.
Stayed for 4 days, and they had anything that we needed! I would definitely recommend this to anyone, and stay here again.
My husband, my dogs, and I really enjoyed our stay at Casa Alissa. The property was very clean and nicely decorated, and we really appreciated the extra touches like the fresh flowers, bedside chocolates, and local coffee & cream in the fridge. Great location, easy access to the Railyard and the Plaza area.
We enjoyed our stay. The casita was comfy, centrally located and equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. We loved being able to walk to the Railyard and even though we had a car, we appreciated being able to ride the bus downtown to avoid parking. Even in the winter, the Farmer's Market was a lot of fun. Bandelier National Monument was our favorite day trip. We also liked the Bradbury Science Museum in Los Alamos. For a nice local day hike, we recommend Atalaya Mountain.
Enjoy outdoor recreation at Larragoite Park with playground, basketball & tennis courts, dog walks, and green space right around the corner from Casita. Bike or walk Acequia trail into the heart of Santa Fe to visit the Farmers Market or a microbrewery. Explore the network of trails that runs throughout the town and into the mountains.Do some sightseeing and walk to Galleries, Studios, and Cafes all along Baca Street. Easy access to grocery shopping, entertainment, and the Plaza area. Participate in the many festivals that happen in Santa Fe throughout the year. Enjoy Spring, Summer and Fall in Santa Fe at the Santa Fe Opera, Spanish Market, International Folk Art Market, the famous Indian Market, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, and Juan Siddi Flamenco Performances. Fall rocks and rolls with the Zozobra Festival, the Santa Fe Wine and Chili Festival and the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in October in Albuquerque, NM. Don't miss out on all the winter sports and fun from skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and snowshoeing all over the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Santa Fe is also full of beautiful museums and art galleries. Make sure you don't miss the Georgia O'Keeffe museum downtown. Anytime of the year, there is always something to do in Santa Fe!
