About Marcy Albin
I have lived in Santa Fe since 2004. While I have spent 20+ years in other areas of New Mexico, Santa Fe is by far my favorite place in New Mexico due to the rich influences of the local cultures, the artists, and its laid back style! There is always something to do in Santa Fe!
Marcy Albin purchased this House in 2006
Why Marcy Albin chose Baca Street
I bought this house due to its central location and ease of access to all of Santa Fe. Initially I bought it as a place for my children to live in while they worked in Santa Fe however with its easy access to downtown, museums, restaurants, and more we all fell in love with it. I especially like the Baca Street Art District with its easy going atmosphere, outdoor cafes, artist studios and galleries. If you want a taste of the real Santa Fe where the locals hang out, this is it. As Canyon Road and many areas of Santa Fe have gotten more and more expensive, many artists have chosen to move to the Baca Street Art District and set up galleries and studios. Recently Santa Fe developed the Railyard Park with trails, studios, galleries, shops, and green space in the Baca Street Art District, so more and more artists are relocating to this area.
What makes this House unique
While staying at my property, I enjoy strolling down to the galleries for art openings, to the cafes for breakfast, or to the Acequia trail for a walk. Once on the Acequia trail, its an easy 15-20 minute walk or bike into North Railyard Park to the Santa Fe Farmers Market where there is more shopping, more art galleries, and great restaurants. Top that all off with a little music and some brews from the local microbrewery and stroll or bike home! Additionally, I always take my visiting family down the street to the Liquid Light Glass Studio for a glass-blowing lesson. Everyone always loves it, including the grandchildren!

A wonderful getaway
A great experience from start to finish. Clean, updated, precious casita. 10 minutes from the plaza. I would stay again without hesitation. Walking distance from Counter Culture an amazing restaurant. Thank you Marcia!
Perfect for Our Trip
This trip was a birthday celebration and was exactly what we were hoping it would be. Comfortable, cozy, well stocked for cooking. This is a great option for folks with a car - it is a little far from Santa Fe sights - at least for us retired folks!
Lovely lil place
Everything we needed for a comfy stay
Wonderful family vacation!
The property was a perfect place for our family of four to enjoy all the wonderful outdoor activities in and around Santa Fe. Clean, cozy, and centrally located that allows easy access to dining, museums, and only 35 minute drive to Ski Santa Fe. We especially enjoyed the evenings on the patio sitting in the western sunshine.
Cute duplex and great location
We enjoyed our stay. The property was well described. The beds were very comfortable and the bedrooms were large.
We especially liked walking to Counter Culture every morning for breakfast.
The owner was very nice and accommodating.
Christmas on Baca Street
Four of us (2 sisters, 2 daughters) stayed here during Christmas week. The casita was conveniently located, comfortably furnished, and very clean, with a well equipped open kitchen (we like to cook). The owner lives right next door. Some of us found it rather chilly: there is a gas fireplace in the living room and a large heating unit in the second bedroom, but the master has no heat (though there is a space heater provided) -- thus 4/5 stars. But it was an unusually cold week.
We had a great time there and would definitely recommend it.
Enjoy outdoor recreation at Larragoite Park with playground, basketball & tennis courts, dog walks, and green space right around the corner from Casita. Bike or walk Acequia trail into the heart of Santa Fe to visit the Farmers Market or a microbrewery. Explore the network of trails that runs throughout the town and into the mountains. Do some sightseeing and walk to Galleries, Studios, and Cafes all along Baca Street. Easy access to grocery shopping, entertainment, and the Plaza area. Participate in the many festivals that happen in Santa Fe throughout the year. Enjoy Spring, Summer and Fall in Santa Fe at the Santa Fe Opera, Spanish Market, International Folk Art Market, the famous Indian Market, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, and Juan Siddi Flamenco Performances. Fall rocks and rolls with the Zozobra Festival, the Santa Fe Wine and Chili Festival and the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in October in Albuquerque, NM. Don't miss out on all the winter sports and fun from skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and snowshoeing all over the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Santa Fe is also full of beautiful museums and art galleries. Make sure you don't miss the Georgia O'Keeffe museum downtown. Anytime of the year, there is always something to do in Santa Fe!
