Overview

New Mexico Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

This newly renovated condo offers beauty, elegance, and all modern amenities; it is your quiet gated community retreat within the heart of downtown Santa Fe. This is the only condo at El Corazon with no stairs, and first floor access to the master bedroom. Drop off your luggage and shopping from the parking area just outside your unit before parking your car in your reserved space in the secure, heated, underground garage. Experience the understated luxury of this impeccably maintained sanctuary, from sinking into the Mitchell Gold sofa and leather chairs, to turning in on new, top of the line Stearns and Foster pillow top mattresses in both bedrooms (king in master, full in second bedroom). Crisp white 600 thread count sheets and duvets await you. The entire condo is a high speed WI-fi zone.

You may park right outside your unit, and/or park in your reserved spot in the underground parking area. Keycards provide secure entry to the parking garage. Several pedestrian gates to the community are accessed with keycodes that you will be given upon arrival.

Your residence is a scenic 5-6 minute (according to Google maps) walk from Santa Fe's 400 year old central plaza, complete with world class dining, shopping, and most importantly, the authentic historic flavor that truly marks Santa Fe as a world class destination. Santa Fe is the second largest art market in North America, with galleries throughout downtown and all along the length of Canyon Road. Excellent skiing is just 30 minutes up the mountain, and the hiking to be had up near the ski area or even closer to town (near St. John's College) is stunning. Take a day trip to Taos on the 'high road' through the small and picturesque towns that help define the special place that is Northern New Mexico.

In summer, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival is just a few minutes walk, while the Santa Fe Opera is just 10 minutes from your door.

Central air conditioning and heat ensure your comfort, while opening the bedroom windows to the mountain air coming from one of the largest private walled terraces at El Corazon is also an excellent choice.

Both bedrooms and the living room have large flat screen HD televisions with super crisp and beautiful satellite signals. Begin a program in the living room, pause, and finish in either one of the bedrooms. Of course, different programs may also be simultaneously viewed in each location. Enjoy Blu-ray DVD's in the master bedroom and living room, as well as excellent clear sound from our ZVOX sound bar in the living room. Connect your iPhone or iPod to the ZVOX with our universal ipod dock and listen to your whole playlist. You can also connect your iPhone/ipod in the master bedroom to your am/FM/clock radio dock.

The modern bathroom has a large glass walk in shower, a granite vanity and silent drawer storage. High end HABA products are included for your use. A large, full length mirror aids your preparation for the day or evening.

There is a new fitness center housed in the clubhouse building, just steps from your unit, that includes recumbent bicycles, treadmill, elliptical machines, as well as an all-in-one strength training machine, free weights and balance balls. When you're finished, throw your workout clothes into the (brand new September 2014!) LG HE washer and dryer in your unit; it's supplied with hypo-allergenic and fragrance free detergent. Both machines feature steam cycles.

Access your private outdoor walled terrace directly from the master bedroom and enjoy relaxing with coffee in the morning or wine as the evening commences. There is a Kitchen-Aid stainless steel grill in the patio area ready for your aged steaks or fresh wild (seasonal) salmon; both available along with almost anything else your gourmet cook can dream up from the nearby and very well-stocked Whole Foods. Enjoy using our stainless Kitchen-Aid appliances, Cuisinart pots and pans, and most any cooking tools you might need.

Of course, top culinary options abound in downtown Santa Fe, and you'll be able to walk to most of them.

You have access to world class dining as well as local specialties, from award winning Spanish tapas at 'La Boca' and prime steaks at the 'Bull Ring', to the award winning 'Coyote Cafe' where wonders await in an elegant dining atmosphere. 'Geronimo' or 'The Compound' make an enticing finish to a stroll up Canyon Road. Don't miss a visit to 'The Shed' for their fabulous northern New Mexico chile and outstanding margaritas. You've arrived!

The European ambiance of downtown Santa Fe combined with our bright days and clear nights conspire to make your stay enchanting. Bienvenidos!

About Daniel and Gillian Brandt

I began commuting to work in Santa Fe while living across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco in Sausalito. These two 'SF's' are our favorite places to be outside, to dine and to find adventure.

Daniel and Gillian Brandt purchased this condo in 2006

Why Daniel and Gillian Brandt chose New Mexico

We simply love Santa Fe, as well as the whole northern New Mexico region. The quality of the light here is truly luminous, the clean air is addictive and intoxicating. This gorgeous residence offers easy and scenic walking access to downtown and the historic plaza together with the luxurious and gated privacy of El Corazon de Santa Fe.

What makes this condo unique

Get some air! World class hiking trail heads are literally minutes from the residence. You may choose from a 30 minute walk on the Dorothy Stewart trail, a 1.5-3 hour to the top of Atalaya via the Dale Ball trail system above St. John's College, or a multi-day oddessey including the summit of Santa Fe Baldy in the Pecos Wilderness, accessed from the Santa Fe Ski area.

Taos's artist mecca is just 90 scenic minutes north, while the spectacular red rocks of Georgia O'Keefe country and Abiquiu's 'Ghost Ranch' are 30 minutes.

Great property, great location, great owners

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at this property and can't say enough about the quality of the experience. The property itself was beautifully decorated, well equipped, and extremely comfortable. The location was excellent, in easy walking distance to the Plaza and many shops and restaurants. The owners provided us with detailed information about how to access the property, amenities at our disposal, and suggested entertainment/restaurants, etc. We couldn't have asked for anything more. I would highly recommend this property and would definitely use it again.

Santa Fe Yearly

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have visited Santa Fe annually for years. We have stayed in many hotels, and also a few condos. This particular retreat is my new favorite rental. The location of the apartment is wonderful!! It was easy to walk to all of the attractions that downtown Santa Fe has to offer. The location of the condo within the development was nicely quiet. Parking was very convenient. Cleanliness is always a top priority for me. This unit was spotless! Seriously, it was perfectly clean. It also had wonderful amenities, such as shampoo and conditioner, liquid hand soap, laundry detergent, etc. The bed sheets were so nice, that I searched for the sewn in tags to see what company manufactured them. After our trip, I purchased the same brand and style of sheets for my own home! Even the coffee maker was superb! Did I mention the wonderful blackout blinds and great air conditioning? We have rented many VRBO properties all over the world now, and this is a top notch property. Thanks so much Daniel!!

David is a great host!! everything is as promised on the website- the parking is very easy. The house is fully stocked and has every amenity one could need. The Fairmont staff are helpful and attentive. The only thing I would add in a community pool and spa area

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this unit was exactly as described. Easy walk to plaza, shopping, Railyard and restaurants. Unless you travel to surrounding areas for outdoor recreation or sight seeing you really wouldn't need a car. If you do have a car there is parking available. The unit was nicely stocked if you wanted to stay in to eat. We would definitely stay in this unit again if it is available the next time we visit Santa Fe.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. It is such a welcoming and beautiful condo. The owners are very accomidating and helpful.

Other than driving to a hike, we were on foot the rest of the weekend. It's an easy walk to the plaza and Railyard. We absolutely loved our stay and plan on returning.
