About the property

Original adobe house with 2 Bedrooms & 2 Baths

Permit #: 17-00142835

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.


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).

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place! Walkable to the plaza and to hiking trails. Near fort Marcy, which offers great views.

Place was perfect for dogs too.

One thing really stood out- the beds were comfy and sheets were soooo nice. Not typical in other rentals.

Great location. Comfortable and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We came with a set of friends and the set up was perfect. We had everything we needed, it was quiet and cozy. We enjoyed having a fire at night. It was close and convenient to everything Santa Fe has to offer.

Centrally located home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Casa Colibri over the holidays. The home was a perfect set up for a family of four. Husband and wife enjoyed the king bedroom while our two girls in their twenties shared the room with the twin beds. We were able to cook a lovely Christmas Eve dinner in a well stocked kitchen and the common areas were well set up for entertaining family and lounging when we were not touring downtown historic Santa Fe, which is a short 3-4 block walk. Museums, galleries, shopping and great restaurants are all nearby, so while a car is nice for side trips to Chimayo and Taos, among other locations, it is not necessary if all you want to do is see this incredible gem of a city. Manager was extremely helpful in booking and answered all of our questions graciously. We would come again (perhaps during warmer weather to enjoy the outdoor dining seating and gas grill) and will recommend to our friends! Thank you for making our holidays extra special.

Perfect Lodging for a Santa Fe Trip

  • 5 of 5

This property is simply beautiful with strong regional influences in the furniture, architecture, and art. We loved it for a Thanksgiving get-away for my husband and myself, along with my parents. It is about a .4-mile walk to the Plaza and convenient to many other attractions and shopping. The kitchen was well-stocked and had everything we needed to prepare a few meals. It was a little chilly in the casita when we arrived, and we struggled to get the temperature up. Fortunately, there was the fireplace and plentiful blankets for the bed.

We would definitely stay here again!

Lovely casita

  • 5 of 5

CASA Casita was great lodging for a 55+ girls getaway. It is in close proximity to The Plaza, walkable for some, tall hill to climb on returning from Plaza. The accommodations are very nice: ceiling fans in all rooms, nice bedding, comfortable living room, extra fans in closets, fully stocked kitchen, good showers, brick floors, authentic Santa Fe casita! One negative: we turned the radiant heat off on day one. Temps at night in 40s and 70s in day. We were very hot the entire trip, day and night. Would stay here again if we could regulate temperature.

Adorable place, perfect location. Set in a quiet neighborhood, yet so close to the Plaza. Spent the week there just to get away, then my husband met me for the weekend. The house was so inviting, we probably spent more time there than out on the town. Would definitely recommend it to others, and rent again.
