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.

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Casa Colibri! We had plenty of space and really appreciated the amenities in the house. The beds, linens, and pillows were super comfortable, and the radiant heat was great in the cold weather. The house is very tastefully decorated. The living room furniture is comfy, and there were even throws to keep us warm. We had everything we needed - soap, nice towels, shampoo and conditioner, hair dryer, and a well-equipped kitchen (even though we didn't cook). We also appreciated that the bedrooms had extra mirrors. The location is also excellent - on a quiet street only a few blocks from the Plaza, restaurants and shops. We would have walked, but we three Californians were too wimpy to brave the cold! That said, we enjoyed a relaxing six-day girls' vacation. One suggestion - the house was a little difficult to find the first time. A marker (maybe a hummingbird?) would be helpful. We drove past the house four times in the dark before we found the driveway.

Wonderful weekend in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Casa Colibri! As promised it was a short walk to the plaza, museums, shops and restaurants. We couldn't have picked a better location.

The place itself was charming, very clean and cozy. We felt right at home and enjoyed the connivence of all the amenities provided. We would definitely stay here again!

Roomy Casa Colibri

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property. It is an easy walk to downtown so the car can stay parked. We hosted Thanksgiving dinner for 9 and the living area was very roomy.

Casa Colibri, a fun place to stay....

  • 5 of 5

Casa Colibri has all the amenities one needs to enjoy a Santa Fe vacation. The place is quiet and comfortable with a cozy atmosphere. It is minutes away from the Plaza and restaurants. We especially liked the short distance to the DeVargas Mall where we used the post office and shopped Albertson's (excellent selection of products). The covered patio was very pleasant. Though it was a bit windy during the first week in November, it is sheltered and private with southern exposure. We would stay at Casa Colibri again. - Kathleen

Perfectly located!

  • 5 of 5

Very well decorated in the Southwestern style. Nice big room for conversing and gathering. Nicely furnished. We loved the outdoor deck. The location was so close to Plaza, so you could walk. It was clean and well kept. We would stay again!
