Overview

Santa Fe House Rental Photos and Description

Original adobe house with 2 Bedrooms & 2 Baths

Permit #: 16-00136116

Casa Colibri (Unit A) is tucked away off a quiet side street and then down a long narrow driveway, both of the Compound’s two homes (Casa Tranquila is further back) are characterized by quiet privacy and attractive surroundings. Yet, an easy walk to the Plaza in the center of town.

Casa Colibri, at a bit over 1050 square feet and the larger of the two homes, often serves as the gracious social center for guests who occupy both houses in this compound.

Colibri’s central open space is air-conditioned and features high, coved viga-beam ceilings with skylights; a kiva fireplace; two cushy leather sofas and a well-equipped kitchen. One of the sofa's is a double bed sized sleeper sofa. Each bedroom has its own private bath. The larger of the bedrooms has a King Bed. The second bedroom has two twin beds (may be put together upon special request). There is also a sleeper sofa in the living room. Floors are warmed with radiant heat in the Winter. There is cable TV in the living room and high-speed wireless roaming internet access throughout the home and property.

The trumpet-vine-covered bricked entry/portico with cast-iron benches and chairs provides an additional seasonal outdoor gathering space.

Features:

Open layout combines living, dining and kitchen.

Temperature controlled with A/C and in-floor radiant heating.

Quality Dansk-ware place settings and Mexican hand-blown glassware.

Each bedroom with own tiled bathroom; master bathroom has a full-sized tub.

Brick floors and kilim carpets throughout.

Peace, quiet, and privacy in a secluded and attractive enclave.

Ceiling/floor fans and portable evaporative coolers.

In-house washer and dryer.

HD Cable TV & DVD.

High-speed roaming wireless internet access throughout the home and property.

Off street parking: 1 car for Colibri and 1 for Tranquila (or two for either home if the other is not occupied by other guests).

Great Casita

  • 5 of 5

Our family traveled to Santa Fe for a wedding and enjoyed staying at this casita. Well appointed with everything necessary in the kitchen and baths. We were thankful for the small a/c unit and fans, as this weekend happened to be very hot in Santa Fe. The owners very helpful and responsive to our inquiries.

Perfect Girls' Getaway Casita

  • 5 of 5

Four long-time friends met for fun and exploration of Santa Fe. We loved the ability to walk to everything, the cozy and inviting porch for coffee in the morning, the cleanliness of the home and all the little amenities provided. We agreed that we could not have found a more perfect place. We would all definitely return for another trip - and perhaps bring our husbands this time!

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property. We had everything we needed. We thought the walk to and from the Plaza would be too much for us. We found parking closer and convenient. Very comfortable. I could live there!! Loved the patio!!

Cozy, Comfortable and Clean

  • 5 of 5

Three friends meet up to spend a long weekend exploring Santa Fe. We each found Casa Colibri to be perfect for our needs. Location to the Plaza, museums, shopping and food was an pleasant walk. The casita style added to the experience, we all marveled at the little touches and how cozy, comfortable and clean it was. Lots of space so none of us were on top of the other. Location is quite and relaxing, especially the table and chairs out on the porch. Casa Colibri exceed our needs along with comfort. We all are coming back in October and will enjoy staying in this same casita again!

Nice as advertised

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with my two kids (4 and 7) and it was the perfect size and location. Quiet street but very walkable to town. The central living and dining area was very good for us, giving the kids room to play while I was cooking. The kitchen had all that I needed, and very nice to be able to use the washer/dryer. The place was suitably clean.

The only drawbacks:

The bathrooms are just fine. As in, don't expect much from the shower heads.

Some of the doors don't have a lot of space to open. I think the owners are trying to maximize the furniture layout, and care less about the flow of walking in and out of certain doors. We made do, no problem. But we were only 1 adult.

The headboard in the master makes noise if you move in bed at all. I shoved some towels in between it and the mattress to minimize the noise, but it should be fixed if two adults are going to sleep there.

The sofa and love seat in the living room were full of food and crumbs under the cushions. Not great, especially if we were planning to use the pull-out.

Owner's Response: Hi Samantha, Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. As with all our reviews, we will take to heart the recommendations that you mentioned and I will attend to them at next opportunity. As you would expect, I never slept in the bed and therefore I was not aware of the squeaky headboard until you mentioned it. No other guests ever did? We will also alert our housekeeping staff to be a bit more vigilant. Again, thank you and please do stay with us again during a future trip to Santa Fe. All the best, Richard
