Overview

About the property

1600 square foot Southwest Style Casa - 2 Bedrooms

Permit #: 17-00143311

Casa Viga Grande (The House-with-the-Massive-Beams) is tucked into a historically authentic and quiet neighborhood above Canyon Road --Santa Fe's prestigious art and gallery district. Winding, narrow streets are reminiscent of Old Europe.

This air-conditioned 1600 square foot Southwest Style Casa offers all the conveniences and charm of contemporary Santa Fe. The spaciousness of high, massive, viga-beam ceilings provide a counterpoint to the rich detail of decor. Everywhere, fine original art and thoughtfully placed artifacts meet the eye.

One uniquely appealing aspect of Viga Grande is the layout. Two completely separate and spacious bedroom suites each have their own private stone-tiled baths. As such, two couples find the equivalency between suites to be appealing. While one suite is more spacious internally; the other opens out onto its own private patio.

The well appointed kitchen features state-of-the-art appliances; double french doors unite the dining area with a second very private patio and gated garden.

The two bathrooms are beautiful and modern, with high-end tile and fixtures. The master bath has two sinks, a separate double-headed shower, and a large jacuzzi-style tub.

A museum-brick drive greets guests as they enter the property --which is virtually hidden behind a hand-forged iron gate. There is off-street parking for two-to-three vehicles.

Once in the famed Canyon Road gallery district of Santa Fe, the 3 minute drive (or 15 minute walk) to Viga Grande begins by following the historically soulful and nourishing Acequia Madre waterway (lovingly referred to by locals as 'The Mother Ditch') and then winding uphill through some of Santa Fe's most charming residential areas.

A free shuttle is also available on Canyon Road, making it easy to explore many other locations in Santa Fe -- including the Rail Yard District.

Beautiful and quiet home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Viga Grande is a clean, spacious and lovely two bedroom home tucked into a peaceful neighborhood in Santa Fe. With an easy walk to Canyon Road one can enjoy a dinner out at the Compound Restaurant, tea at the Teahouse or simply take in the wonderful art galleries.

The management team at Casa Viga Grande is superb. I had a few things I wanted to complete my culinary needs in an already well appointed kitchen and with one phone call my needs were met in a friendly and timely manner.

I look forward to staying at Casa Grande on my return visit to Santa Fe!

I highly recommend this home to all travelers.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Viga Grande is a beautiful, quiet home nestled in a special neighborhood in Santa Fe. It is an easy walk to Canyon Road to have tea at The Teahouse or a delicious dinner at the superb Compound Restaurant or stroll through all the wonderful art galleries.

For allergy sensitive folks like me the home provided a pristine home free of allergens.

With a simple call the home management team purchased a few kitchen items that I needed to help make my cooking experience even better in their high end kitchen. Great service with kindness and care. I highly recommend Casa Viga Grande and look forward to staying there again!

Fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away on a quiet street, this house is an oasis! The accommodations are super comfortable. The outdoor spaces are great - gas grill, picnic table and other seating make spending time outside very enjoyable. The kitchen is remarkably well equipped and made cooking very easy (we are foodies & very particular about these things). The managers were readily available to answer questions and provide assistance when needed. This is the second time we have stayed in this house and would come back in a heartbeat!

Incredible space, the best place i've rented in Santa Fe!

  • 5 of 5

Over the past 6 years, I have spent part of the year in Santa Fe for work. This house outshines every other house, hands down. From the moment I entered the gate, I felt at home. The house is impeccably furnished and equipped. Comfortable and spacious inside and outside. Can't wait to visit again.

Excellent New Year's stay.

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a quiet get away to Santa Fe. The photographs of house do not do it justice. The kitchen is first rate. The living room is comfortable and cozy. All in all this home provided us with one of our best Santa FE rental visits. We will return.
