The favorite gathering spots are the morning garden for coffee to plan the day, the living rooms for watching the games, the back garden for cocktails and al fresco dining and finely each one finds their way to sleep in splendor on the beautiful custom PRATESI linens.

Two Blocks in either direction takes you to the most unique shopping, exceptional galleries and world-class restaurants of the Plaza and Canyon Road. This is where memorable vacations are made!

The kitchen is the center point of the house with access to all rooms including the living and dining rooms which overlook the front garden. Surrounding gardens keep you wrapped in sunshine and enjoying al fresco dining with the gas grill. Casa Perla is through the garden gate and opens to the living room with Kiva fireplace and textured décor for warmth and comfort. The efficient kitchen with a “Red Dragon” granite eating bar that also serves as a desk separates the kitchen with the secluded bedroom to the back.

LOCATION. Facing Delgado Street, a quick right takes you two blocks to Canyon Road and a quick left takes you up to the corner of Palace where the Plaza is just two blocks away. The city of Santa Fe is your backyard. A perfect location is your greatest asset in this Santa Fe Vacation Rental home.

WHY IS THE PALACIO COMPOUND YOUR FIRST CHOICE? To enjoy the history of a 1900's house with all the luxury of today's finishes is a treat. There is plenty of space for all to gather separately and together while wrapped by a beautiful garden in the BEST location.

TRUTH BE TOLD. “An Oasis Of Refined Luxury. Aqui Santa Fe is an oasis of refined luxury in a city where every real estate agency promises (but rarely delivers) vacation rental bliss. The firm’s petite, friendly, and energetic proprietor, Caroline Morgan, is blessed with the kind of background that makes her uniquely suited to caring for discerning guests. As the executive assistant to one of America’s most beloved First Ladies, Caroline learned the true meaning of “exclusive” when she traveled the world in actual Presidential style. Later Caroline managed art galleries in Santa Fe, and brokered multi-million dollar homes in Colorado and New Mexico. Her understanding and personal experience of the art and luxury markets now translate into what I can best describe as “vacation home curation. Each property in Caroline’s portfolio is carefully selected, designed, and furnished, exuding a wealth of old world charm coupled with contemporary sophistication. From the treasured art collections and hand-wrought four poster beds, to the crisp Italian linens and modern appliances, every aspect of an Aqui home receives Caroline’s expert and tasteful attention. Try to imagine a hotel comprised of designer suites located in varied destinations, while maintaining brand quality and consistency throughout, and you’ll grasp the Aqui difference. Each Aqui home is individual in style and aesthetic, yet all properties retain equivalent standards of quality, luxury and care. I only wish Caroline could clone herself and develop Aqui branches all over the world.” Joy Davidson, A LUXURY TRAVEL BLOG

AQUI SANTA FE WELCOMES YOU. Drive directly to the house where Caroline will meet you with keys and for a brief tour. At departure she is back again to pick up the keys and bid you a fond farewell.

YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER EACH HOUSE SEPARATELY. For further description see: Casa Simpatica, VRBO #269347 and Casa Perla, VRBO #276381.

THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING THE PALACIO COMPOUND. We look forward to ensuring a memorable vacation where peace of mind is among the many amenities.

My best,

Caroline Morgan

I answer all of your phone calls, take you through the easy reservation process and enjoy meeting each and every one of you upon arrival.

Caroline Morgan purchased this house in 2009

Why Caroline Morgan chose Historic Eastside

Casas Palacio was my very first property. After 4 years, Casa Perla is completely rebuilt and the last phase of renovation has been completed on Casa Simpatica. It is a pleasure to preserve the best of the old and blend it with a new more luxe finish.

What makes this house unique

You know what they say in real estate....location, location, location. In addition the property is a joy to work with.

Guestbook comments from the manager

EMAIL: Is there a knowledgeable Santa Fe real estate agent who really cares about her clients? Believe it, there is. She is with the Aqui agency . . . and she knows her market and how to match people and place. A rare skill. Add personal character and a customer-first attitude and it spells Caroline Morgan.

Thank you Caroline for making our family Thanksgiving in Santa Fe a trip to remember. Both of your lovely properties were perfect in every respect and we lacked for nothing. You truly have thought of everything and we thank you for your hospitality.

Best Time in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful trip to the Wine and Chile Festival in Santa Fe. While food and wine were excellent, its important to remember when you are gone and have to sleep somewhere, that's pretty important! We couldn't have asked for a better experience than at the Aqui Santa Fe. This home and casita were outstanding. So nice to be able to relax and have a place to stretch out. The house is beautifully decorated, wonderful welcome baskets, italian linens to put you in dreamworld. This place is walking distance to the plaza. We would all love to have stayed longer and wishing we could go back today. Wonderful owners/managers. Thank You

Owner's Response: How true it is! Wine & Chile Fiesta is great fun but it can be a test of endurance. Thus the creature comforts of a beautifully furnished home, premium bed with luxurious linens and a perfect location provide for brief respites in between events and leave you refreshed and looking forward to the next gathering. Come stay with AQUI and see for yourselves!

Where to put my extended family visiting Santa Fe for the first time? The Palacio Compound - with it's two charming casitas connected by an equally charming patio - it turned out to be the perfect choice. Everyone loved the furnishings, the beds, the Italian linens and toiletries and if they could have spent the day in their yummy Frette bathrobes, they would have! But Santa Fe beckoned and all the delights were just a short walk from the casitas. Thank you Caroline (owner of Aqui Santa Fe) for greeting everyone when they arrived and accommodating all ten of us in your wonderful Palacio Compound. We felt well cared for.

Owner's Response: What a great family! They were Vacation Rental veterans of the highest degree and knew how to enjoy every inch of the house and Santa Fe too for that matter. The back garden is the afternoon gathering place and the go between for the house and casita. It is so convenient!

Girls' Trip

  • 5 of 5

We have a group of 6 ladies that have made a girls' trip once a year for the last 18 years! We chose Santa Fe this year and we had a fabulous time. This house is perfect for that kind of trip.....we rented both the Casa and the Casita. We enjoyed the patios for wine and cheese in the late afternoons. Everything was really within walking distance or a short cab ride. The houses were comfortable, roomy, and very well equipped. We LOVED the welcome baskets and the cinnamon bread is to die for!!! Any questions we had or needs we had were IMMEDIATELY taken care of by the rental agent. She was delightful and so accommodating. If we didn't try a new place every year, we would come back to Casas Palacio in a heartbeat!! We highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Amazing ladies......they had the best time shopping, eating and right down the the bloody marys upon departure. The only trouble is, they go to a different destination each year so I may not see them back for awhile. They certainly know how to have a good time and it was fun having them as guests.

Wonderful Houses

  • 5 of 5

The location was great. The houses were beautiful. We have rented many houses in SantaFe over the years, this one was the best. We were able to walk all the restaurants and shopping abd leave the cars parked. This location had the best outdoor areas of any place we have stayed. We will stay here again.
