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.

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

Walk to Plaza and Railyard area with comfortable Southwest charm

  • 5 of 5

Casita Elena was a wonderful home base for a visit to Santa Fe and the surrounding areas. We walked easily to the Plaza and Railyard areas for sightseeing and restaurants. It is also just a quick walk to a shopping area with a super market, pharmacy, etc. The Casita interior is furnished in a charming Southwest style throughout. The kitchen is well equipped and has ample counter space. The bathroom and shower area is large with a skylight, and well stocked with towels. The bed is very comfortable.

Our host was attentive and thoughtful, leaving us some provisions and inquiring about our experience during our stay.

We completely recommend Casita Elena as a charming and very convenient location for Santa Fe visitors who want to experience the Plaza area without the noise and the bustle.

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!

Cute and cozy. Perfect for a couple.

  • 5 of 5

The House was in a quiet neighborhood and a quick walk to the plaza. Coming from a bigger city I’m used to busier streets, so the lack of noise during our night walks took some time to adjust to.

The House was a perfect fit for my wife and I. Warm at night, cool in the day. The kitchen had enough cookery for our home-cooked breakfast. Linda added a nice touch with coffee beans and sparking water.

The shower had great water pressure and Linda provided trader joe’s shampoo, conditioner and body wash. The canopy bed was charming and mattress and pillows were extremely comfortable.

The only downside to the property was the slow wi-fi. Uploading trip pictures and videos to social media took a while. Streaming Netflix and movies during our downtime at night was painstakingly slow.

Despite this, I would definitely stay here again.
