Guestbook comments from the owner

We certainly enjoyed our stay in your cozy casita. The setting is so beautiful, we were reluctant to go out and sightsee. We did go out and see some terrific things but this casita made coming home in the evening a joy. Thank you so much -

Peaceful, well-appointed getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at La Vista Hermosa. The property is so comfortable and peaceful - you feel like you are really away from the hustle and bustle but at the same time it's easy to get into Santa Fe and out to the main highway. Comfortable bed, cozy fireplace, and reasonably well equipped kitchen. Lleta is a gracious host and we would definitely stay again.

Secluded & Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Santa Fe and we picked a great place to stay! Ken & Lleta's casita is just what we needed! Quiet, beautiful views, and very relaxing. Each morning we had breakfast on the patio enjoying our coffee and the mountain views! Nicely decorated, (SW style) clean and the kitchen well stocked for cooking meals in if you'd like. We would definitely stay here again. (Ken helped with suggestions of places to see and things to do for a couple of our day trips as well.) Thank you Ken & Lleta!

Just Great!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at this well appointed Casita. The home is very comfortable and comes equipped with everything you could possibly need during your stay. The property is secluded, private and quiet in a area of very nice Santa Fe style homes. We found the location to be a good starting point to visit all the sights in the greater Santa Fe area. The house is well furnished and full of southwest charm and has two fireplaces to help keep things warm and cozy. If you are looking for a quiet, cozy, romantic place to stay, in a beautiful setting just outside the hustle and bustle of the city then this is the place.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a glorious long weekend at this lovely casita. We thoroughly loved the location, about ten minutes north of Santa Fe. The casita had everything we were looking for---gorgeous views from many outdoor areas, plenty of space, beautifully furnished and most importantly, hosted by two very knowledgeable, friendly and hospitable hosts. We highly recommend this for those seeking a natural location in the Santa Fe area!
