Why Cynthia chose Downtown
When Cynthia was looking to purchase a home in Santa Fe, her main objective was to buy a residence in downtown Santa Fe, and with a guesthouse that could be converted to a vacation rental. The downtown area of the city is uniquely special and offers so many possibilitites for visitors. In the 20 years she has owned the property, she has remnodeled both the main house and the guesthouse with comfort and privacy in mind, and including a contemporary flair.
What makes this Cottage unique
McKenzie House is located smack-dab in the middle of the city, in the historic Staab Street neighborhood. The famed Georgia O'Keeffe Museum is one block to the south; the Convention Center 1/2 block to the east. Endless shopping, restaurants and cultural sites are literally outside the door, so visitors to McKenzie House can park the car in their private driveway and walk to all the events and asssets of the downtown area, including Indian Market.Attending the Santa Fe Opera? It is just 10 minutes away and just to our north. The casita itself is private and extremely comfortable, including an outside hottub with a private deck, so after those long, enjoyable days in our the city, guests can retreat to their own freestanding, private casita and relax. What could be better!

Perfect location, quiet, and the owner of the studio was accommodating
While my friends and family stayed in hotels for a wedding, I loved having my quiet and privacy with this perfectly located studio.
Loved this place!
I had such a peaceful, comfortable stay here. So close to so many things- I walked to galleries, nice restaurants and shops. The room was great and had everything I needed and then some.
Thanks Cindy for the wonderful little casita, so conveniently right in the middle of town, yet quiet and restorative. The hot tub was so wonderful, and I was in it night and morning. Everything I needed, including an umbrella! Bed soooo comfortable. I slept like a log.
This place is a gem!
Very comfortable and cozy casita. Fantastic host! Enjoyed the walks to Sante Fe historic district!
Perfect couples getaway
This is a perfect couples getaway for 2. Great price, great host, great hot tub for cool nights, close to everything. Walk or Uber
Romantic snowy New Year's retreat
Cozy and convenient. We could see the fireworks for New Year's Eve. Walking distance to all the best stuff. Hot tub and fireplace were amazing and bed was super comfy. Bumble Bee Baja cafe, Izma Sushi, and Il Vicino Wood Fire Pizza nearby were all delicious. Love it, will come back!
