Permit #: 18-00149877
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.

Perfect house in a beautiful historical neighborhood.
We loved the this VRBO in Santa Fe. The owners have beautifully decorated and perfectly stocked the home, Even the linens were very high end. It is exceptionally clean. We loved that we could walk to Canyon Road and the Plaza from the house.
Very well furnished, comfy house
We spent six days in the Santa Fe and found the house very comfortable and equipped with everything we could need. Plus the decor was beautiful and had the real southwest flavor. The location was great. We walked to Canyon Rd and were a short drive from all local attractions. The neighborhood was quiet too. A perfect choice for a Santa Fe getaway.
We keep coming here and it’s always great!

Perfect House for Us
Casa Viga Grande was the perfect for house for us. It is comfortable with an extremely well equipped kitchen which is important for our family. Also, the second bedroom has twin beds but if requested, housekeeping will make it up as a single king-sized bed for a couple. Richard

Our Santa Fe vacation was a wonderful experience and staying at Viga Grande just topped it off.
The home met all of our expectations and the photos are a very accurate depiction of the property. Although we did not cook ( too many good restaurants ) the kitchen seemed very well appointed.
Canyon road is just a two or three minute drive with great places to eat. The drive to the plaza only took us less than ten minutes.
We would definitely stay at Viga Grande again and would recommend it to others.
I enjoyed the home and the location. Very relaxing.
Although we enjoyed our stay, the outdoor furniture is not comfortable or inviting, which is quite a loss. The home needs to be much more generously stocked with toiletries and paper products (bath soap, tissues, TP, napkins). As an example, we were only provided with one small bar of soap for the shower for an entire week. It's highly inadequate & just coming across as a cheap.
Thank you so much for writing a review and we always take our guests' recommendations to heart. However, regarding the outdoor furniture, we have never had a mention of it being uncomfortable during the past 4 years. It is important to recognize that it is designed for all weather, year-round use and therefore can not be to cushy. It needs to be capable of holding up to the elements and good for sitting around the gas-fired fire pit.
We always provide toiletries (not actually usual in a vacation rental) and should you have requested more, we would have brought some by. We believe that there is always adequate toilet paper, tissues and shampoo but I can agree that the four bars of organic soap that we provide, may not be enough for a week.
Thanks again for staying with us and all the best, Richard
Casa Viga Grande is in an historic part of Santa Fe and within walking distance (about 1/2 mile) to Canyon Road and all the fine art galleries and restaurants. It is about 1.6 mile walk to the Plaza.
