Sooo perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Pequena is perfect if you're looking to be in one of the best neighborhoods in Santa Fe.

The house is small but super well appointed, tidy, and just so charming. The Kiva fireplace was so nice during rare single digit weather. Thanks Amber! We look forward to visiting again.

Enjoyable stay at an exceptional property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Casa Pequena! It's so cute and cozy, we would definitely recommend it and would stay again. We stayed for 5 nights in late October 2016. The location was ideal. It was an easy, 5-10 minute walk to the plaza, the railyard district (Farmers Market), many restaurants and grocery (Kahne's and whole foods). The street and neighborhood was quiet at night so we could relax after our day of Stop correcting "sightseeing". It was nice to have a couch and chairs to relax at the end of the day. The casa had everything we needed. The kitchen was fully equipped, we made our own breakfast every day. Amber even brought us some more firewood so we could use the Kiva fireplace. The bed was very comfortable, the shower was great. The parking spot worked great for our rental car. We used Casa Pequena as our base and explored some of the nearby areas on a few days - Bandelier, Los Alamos, Kasha Katuwe. For the same price as some of the nearby hotels, we had a kitchen, a living room and a parking spot - definitely a good value.

Stayed here twice; Already planning for next year

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at Casa Pequena in Santa Fe. This is our second year and are already planning to stay there again next year. We are walkers and we can walk everywhere we want to go from this little house. It's perfectly located and it's in such a nice quiet neighborhood. The kitchen is well-stocked; the furniture is comfortable and everything is lovely - art, rugs, dishes and storage baskets. The bathroom is comfortable and the shower is wonderful. We really enjoyed sitting out in the front courtyard, reading during the day and watching the stars at night. We connected with the owners when we arrived and we knew we could reach them if we needed anything, but we found everything we needed and wanted for a restful and fun stay.

Beautiful Casita close to the best of Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Casa Pequena! For the 2 of us, it was just the right size. The casita is exactly as described - also warm and welcoming! The Haskell's responded quickly to our inquiries and making the reservation was a breeze. They provided guides to Santa Fe shopping and dining, directions for walking to them all. We enjoyed the cozy living/dining/kitchen room, clean and comfortable bedroom and bath. The casita is really close to everything for walking - we walked to the railyard, downtown, restaurants, stores, and just around the charming neighborhood. Close to everything but super quiet. We roamed the city and environs all day then relaxed in the casita each night. We would not hesitate to recommend Casa Pequena to our friends!
