Santa Fe House Rental Photos and Description

800 sq. ft., 11' ceilings w/vigas, air conditioning, new walk-in glass shower

Located a leisurely ten minute stroll from the historic Santa Fe plaza, Casita Elena is a fully restored, 125 year old, territorial-style gem featuring old world charm and contemporary amenities. The renovated building was featured in the 1999 Metropolitan Home winner's edition for its inviting elegance and Southwestern charm. Situated in the heart of the San Francisco Street district, this very special casita is within easy walking distance of the fabulous Lensic Theater, our new Santa Fe Convention Center, world famous Georgia O'Keefe Museum, endless fine dining, and wonderful shopping.

Lovingly refurbished in 2004, our one bedroom attached casita has a private entrance welcoming you into the warm coziness of double-adobe plaster walls, eleven foot viga ceilings, kiva fireplace with candles (non-working) ceiling fans, air conditioning, original wood floors, walk-in glass shower, queen canopy bed with luxurious linens, fresh organic coffee, an assortment of teas, and all the fixings for breakfast.

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!

Perfect Location & Amenities in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

Casa Elena was just perfect for our week in Santa Fe. A short 10 minute walk to the Plaza to see all the historic sites. We walked to dinner every night, the Farmers Market on Wednesday, REI and Tomasita's at the rail yard. The property is very comfortable, spotless with everything we needed. Linda was great to work with and even stocked the kitchen with a bottle of wine, eggs, juice and a loaf of bread. Very thoughtful!

Lovely rental in a great location in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Casita Elena. It was beautifully appointed, well stocked with coffee, eggs, juice, wine, and clean and neat. We enjoyed working in the kitchen and eating some of our meals "at home" while we were visiting such an exciting city. There is lots to do and not having to drive and park was a big plus. A short walk down to the Plaza made going to the Georgia O'Keeffe museum and the shops and restaurants a breeze. Linda was helpful and responded quickly to emails so we got questions answered immediately. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic rental. It is beautiful inside--the photos don't do it justice! Linda has a great sense of design, with everything proportional and nice art on the walls. It is extremely comfortable, with multiple places to read and stools at the counter. The kitchen is easy to work in, with nice dishes and everything else you would need. Even the knives are sharp! Linda provides excellent coffee, both caffinated and decaf, which we really enjoyed. The first night we were there, we had planned to go out but it rained, so we enjoyed staying in and cooking. The casita is extremely well located--just a few blocks from the plaza and 0.2 miles from Clafoutis, which serves breakfast and lunch and where you can buy great croissants and other delicacies to go. We barely used our car when in Santa Fe because so many restaurants and attractions were in walking distance. The shower is great and everything is clean. The bed, though only a queen, is comfortable and romantic with small lights behind a translucent cloth. Linda was available by phone to answer any questions. This is really a beautiful space and we look forward to returning to our "Santa Fe home away from home."

Casita Elena

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay in Casita Elena in Santa Fe. When we arrived we had a bottle of wine waiting for us along with coffee and other essentials! The little house was decorated in the southwest style and looked exactly like the pictures I viewed when booking. We would definitely stay there again and certainly recommend it to our friends!
