Santa Fe House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6 adults, 2 children on pull-out couch

Casa De Alma is an exceptionally beautiful 3-bedroom, 2-bath adobe home situated on a charming tree-lined street in the heart of Santa Fe’s 400-year old Eastside historic district. Rated a 5-Star Vacation Rental for the past eight years, it is perfect for one, two, or three couples or a family that seek an elegant and authentic way to experience Santa Fe. Walk to Santa Fe's famous Plaza and Canyon Road, just a few blocks away. The open floor plan includes a large master bedroom with Kiva fireplace and separate bath, a large king-bedded room and a smaller queen-bedded room that share a connecting bath. A large fully-equipped kitchen with washer and dryer adjoin the living room and dining area. A Kiva fireplace is the focal point of the living area. A queen sofa bed in the living room is handy for additional children.

Casa De Alma is fully licensed by the City of Santa Fe and abides by all tax laws and city ordinances.

Romantic Ambiance: Inside Casa de Alma, the Southwest comes alive with vibrant colors and natural lighting that accentuate the exposed beam ceilings and beautiful red brick floors. The living room features a gorgeous Kiva fireplace to warm the cool mountain nights, colorful antique rugs, and a rare bench and cross wall in the Native tradition. A rich leather sofa invites good conversation, reading or napping in the great room while the elegant dining room seats eight and has table service for twelve. The spacious kitchen is equipped with fine pottery, cookware and glassware and comes with lots of counter space and natural light. Upon arrival, you are welcomed to Casa de Alma with a special basket of goodies.

Sleeping Rooms with Style: Each bedroom is a fantasy destination in itself. The master bedroom features a king size bed with a beautifully hand-carved antique gate headboard, cozy seating area in front of a Kiva fireplace, and elegant private bath with luxury amenities and Southwest decor. The next bedroom features a king-size bed with covers and pillows in rich soothing colors of blue and red. Large windows let in plenty of sunshine or can be completely shaded for the late morning sleeper. The third bedroom features a queen size bed with fine linens in shades of cream and white, an ornate iron bedstead situated between two inviting windows, and a gorgeous ceiling of Southwestern latillas. The shared bath between these two bedrooms has a large walk-in shower, elegant lighting, and Southwest accents. All bedrooms feature Ralph Lauren linens and cozy robes.

Pet-Friendly: Casa de Alma is a pet friendly Santa Fe vacation rental (dogs only - maximum of two) for an additional charge per night. Confirmation of your pet must be made in advance of arrival. Casa de Alma has a completely fenced back yard that pooches and pet owners love!

About Virginia Hughes

Having lived in Santa Fe for five years full time, my husband and I still visit frequently and were thrilled to be able to purchase Casa de Alma. Although we live in Texas we are able to manage our property with the help of trusted caregivers.

Virginia Hughes purchased this house in 2013

Why Virginia Hughes chose Santa Fe

This prestigious area of Santa Fe is close to Canyon Road and the Plaza, within walking distance of both. Additionally the historic East Side is a wonderful area to walk and view the architecturally significant homes in the area. Leafy and an easy walk, the nearby Acequia Madre is a beautiful walking area. Located on a quiet dead-end street, Casa de Alma is the perfect getaway in Santa Fe.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 plus a friend (that's 4 teenagers!) had the pleasure of staying at this lovely property for spring break. It is a true slice of Santa Fe - beautifully decorated and lovingly cared for, down to the tiniest detail. Little things like an abundance of thick, designer towels in each bathroom, incredibly comfortable beds and gorgeous light pouring through the windows and skylights. It was spacious yet cozy, and the location was excellent. Will definitely stay here again! We usually stay at the Inn at Loretto, and this was much more luxurious at a better price!

Perfect Week at Casa de Alma

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four and grandmother spent a week at Casa de Alma. It was a fabulous set-up for us; the home is beautifully designed, in a lovely neighborhood, and provides for easy walking to Canyon Road and beyond. The home is well maintained and we were all very comfortable. It was a long-time dream of grandmother's to visit Santa Fe and Casa de Alma provided us with the perfect home base as we explored the city and other New Mexico sites.

Ideal Santa Fe Vacation Property!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing home in Santa Fe! Casa de Alma is a fantastic place to stay with your family and friends. This is our second time staying at Casa de Alma- just as wonderful the second time around.

There is plenty of space inside and outside of the home for kids and family to enjoy. The location is ideal, a few blocks off Canyon Road and a quick drive or walk to the plaza. The house was a perfect place to relax after a long day skiing. We ordered great food and sat by the fire. The owners have an amazing eye for detail creating a truly Santa Fe style stay. They have a wonderful book of suggestions and information for local attractions as well as a collection of Santa Fe and NM guidebooks to help you plan your days.

We walked to Canyon Road and then on to the Plaza one morning spending the day at the museums, shops and restaurants. It was a memorable vacation made even better by our stay at Casa De Alma. We look forward to returning next year!!

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

Casa De Alma is a beautiful luxury home with old world charm in a great location. This home has all the modern conveniences with the character of an old world adobe structure. It is in an upscale neighborhood within walking distance to all the best shopping and restaurants. A short stroll to Canyon, and convenient to everything. The house is gorgeous, decorated beautifully. Very comfortable, and relaxing. Loved the kiva fireplace and large well appointed kitchen. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Santa Fe.

Wish we could live here.

  • 5 of 5

We just had a wonderful time at Casa de Alma. We had a beautiful snow when we visited, and the house was so cozy and warm. Loved the fireplace, and the kitchen had everything we needed. At the same time, great restaurants are close by, as is the square. We hope to go back again and again.
