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.

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.

Perfect Christmas Holiday !!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your lovely casita. This is truly one of the nicest VRBO's we have stayed in. Your attention to every detail made the casita so comfortable and the perfect "home away from home". A very special thank you for returning the bracelet I left at the casita - just another example of the outstanding service you provide. I highly recommend this VRBO to anyone planning a visit to beautiful Santa Fe.

Lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My guests and I LOVED staying here. VERY well maintained, central location, managed extremely well, kitchen so well furnished. Bed very comfortable. Great support from the management. Definitely a high recommendation.I held a retreat here with 6 other people and they really enjoyed it too. They didn't sleep here but we met here every day.

Everything Included

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying at this property. It is in a unique neighborhood that gives the home an authentic Santa Fe feel. We enjoyed the privacy despite the close proximity of neighboring homes. We were able to walk to Canyon Road and downtown, but the route is winding and up hill on the way home. Handy convenience store just a short walk from the house. Everything was clean and in order when we arrived, and we were especially appreciative of the shower and laundry closet amenities. Big bedroom closets and comfortable beds. The kitchen had all the appliances and utensils we needed. Very nice landscaping; we especially enjoyed the outdoor gas fire pit on a cool morning or evening. Only suggestion is to provide more clear instructions for recycling.

Our Santa Fe Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything at Casa Viga Grande is arranged to make one's stay comfortable and private. We enjoyed spending our vacation in a quiet, friendly neighborhood where at night we did some stargazing, and on occasion would hear coyotes in the distance. The kitchen which was well equipped, and we were thankful for the best nights' sleep on comfortable mattresses. There was plenty of bedding to keep us warm at night. We used the Acequia Madre road for access to town, which is lovely (takes about a 6 minutes' drive.) The local Kaune's grocery store is easy to find. We liked being close to Canyon Rd. also, where we had lunch at El Faro - excellent choice of tapas.

Casa Viga Grande I would highly recommend for anyone who wants Santa Fe ambience and easy access to downtown, the art galleries on Canyon Rd. and Museum Hill where there is a wonderful café.
