Guestbook comments from the owner

I'm not getting that so Ill just write it here and you write it for me and sigh it.





Dear Linda,

It took me 3 days before I noticed the mobile in the bedroom and another 10 before I noticed the rabbit in the kitchen!

What else is hidden in my charming, lovely casita?

I love that it felt like home from day one. You can see and feel the love that was put into it.....best of all Casita Elana has a sense of humor. I felt so at home, I truly did not want to leave.

I discovered De Vargus mall about a week before I left. You take a right on San Francisco St. till it practically runs into it. I loved Sprouts grocery store and the mall has a nice little movie theater.

The location is wonderful no matter which way your going. Thank you so much for my lovely stay.

Sincerely,

Jo Butler

Casita Elena was truly a homeaway from home

  • 5 of 5

I have had the pleasure of spending a month at Casita Elena, and cannot say enough about the wonderful landlords and the clean and beautifully decorated historic casita. I came here without my car, but it proved to be no problem, as stores and the center of town is in easy walking distance. The washer and dryer made the extended stay easy, and the generous start up provisions were very helpful. I have felt so cared for and highly recommend this beauty to anyone visiting the area. If you do bring a car, there is parking provided. The kitchen had plenty of utensils etc. to cook great meals, I really enjoyed the fireplace. You will want to come back!

Going forward, this will be our "place to stay in Santa Fe"

  • 5 of 5

We are two frequent travelers in our 60s who stayed in this wonderful casita for four nights in September and loved it. We appreciated the first class quality of the architectural design, interior furnishings and decorations. We have stayed in many one bedroom VRBOs and this was by far the most spacious and comfortable. The location was perfect ... a 10 minute walk up San Francisco St. to the center of the Plaza or to the Railyard District. The kitchen was well equipped for guests who like to cook. We appreciated convenience and security of the private off-street parking space. The owners, Linda and Tim, were super ... friendly, accommodating, communicative and accessible. Linda showed us the adjacent separate 2BR unit, also available for short term rental, which was every bit as nice or nicer than our unit. The two units together would be perfect for a larger group of 6 or 8. Going forward, this will be our place to stay in Santa Fe!

Ideal suite

  • 5 of 5

The location is prime if you want to visit the plaza. About a 7 minute drive to Wholefoods.

The suite is adorable, comfortable and has all the amenities needed and is really lovely.

Very Nice!

We were so happy with Elena Casita for our week long stay in Santa Fe; it was clean, comfortable, well equipped and cozy. Location was easy to find & walk to Plaza & other places was convenient. Communications with the owner were all quick & responsive. We would definitely stay again & recommend it highly!
