Permit #: 16-00135634

Light filled, spacious, air-conditioned Casa La Vista is located in a gated compound 3 blocks from the Santa Fe Plaza. Its intimate balcony offer views of sunsets and mountain ranges as backdrop to the Cathedral-by-the-Plaza. Designed by an award winning architect/builder, Casa La Vista provides classic Southwest ambiance with its high viga-beam ceilings, sky lights, brick floors and kiva fireplace.

Guests are greeted by two levels of generous living/gathering spaces. The primary level comprises a well equipped kitchen, cozy dining area and spacious, comfortable living room.

Lower level showcases a spacious master bedroom suite with copious closet space and a large, sunken Mexican tiled bath/shower that looks out onto a very private, well-maintained garden. Access to the lower level is via a wide spiral stair case.

Sleeping accommodations include a king bed in the master bedroom, and two twin beds in the second bedroom and a sleeper-sofa in the living room.

Off-street parking is provided for 1 vehicle: adjacent to front door. There is also a garage that may be used upon request if you have a 2nd vehicle.

The casa was so relaxing and the details that surrounded us spoke of hospitality. It has been like a good book; each day has revealed a new treasure to notice.

great experience

  • 5 of 5

My 2 adult daughters and I spent a week at Casa La Vista in Santa Fe. The home was perfect in every way. So Comfortable and beautifully appointed in true Santa Fe Style.

We were close to the plaza and galleries, great restaurants , and shopping.

We needed a car as we did 4 amazing hikes , and toured around the surrounding area.

It was a fabulous holiday and we will surely return to Casa La Vista.

Many thanks for assuring me it would be was.

Fantastic Townhome in Prime Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. Four of us stayed very comfortably at the house and will definitely be staying here on our next trip to Santa Fe. It's in an excellent location - walking distance to great shops and restaurants. The property is decorated in high-end Santa Fe style, which really added to the whole experience. I highly recommend Casa La Vista!

This is a great place for 2 couples to enjoy Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

This property sits above The Plaza in Santa Fe. A three block walk gets you to the beginning of all things Santa Fe. We needed a car to get from Albuquerque to Santa Fe and used it to buy groceries and wine but other than that we went on food.

We love the corn kitchen and had lunch out almost every day. This house makes cooking in the evening easy and there is a wonderful living room with kiva where friends can enjoy the gorgeous sunsets and the kiva and just feel relaxed and at home.

We were there in December and had a significant snow fall which only made things prettier. The condo is quiet, and we had a sense that we were the only people for miles around, which wasn't true but it felt like it.

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was comfortable, convenient, immaculately decorated and well located. We would love to visit Santa Fe again and we would definitely stay at the same condo

Sister reunion

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I and our husbands wanted to explore Santa Fe. It took a few tries to get a house through VRBO as the first 2 became unavailable after we booked them. Richard worked with us and the third try was a charm. We loved the location and ability to walk to the plaza and up to Ft. Marcy for Park for the sunsets and great view of Santa Fe. The house was a bit further from Canyon Rd than we thought but it worked out fine to drive there. The downstair master bedroom was beautiful, but a little strange as it was open to the living area via the stairs, so not as private as one might want. Worked fine for us as we were all family and all early to bed. We had a little trouble with the key code, but Richard came right over and sorted things out. The kitchen could have been a bit better supplied, but we did fine. Overall, we had a great time in a great location, that was clean, quiet, well kept, with a lovely Southwest feel. We would definitely consider staying here when we visit again (which we need to do as there is so much that we missed on too short a visit)
