I grew up in Santa Fe and attended the nearby 'Garcia St. Club' as a young girl. I've always loved this part of Santa Fe and so pleased to own this authentic, yet modern, adobe. I left New Mexico to attend Stanford University in California and have lived in the Bay Area since, now residing in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco.
Professionally, I'm a veteran of several Internet start-ups most notably Match and TRUSTe (privacy solutions), and now Babierge, baby equipment rental platform.
In San Francisco, I often rent my home and my guests invariably remark on its comfort, style and art. I hope you will will feel the same at my house on Garcia St.
Fran purchased this house in 2013
To me, Garcia St. is quintessentially Santa Fe. Beautiful homes and 'compounds' adorn both sides of the long boulevard as it climbs toward the Santa Fe foothills. My property is nestled in a historic compound with an exceptional setting and location.
This is my first house on Garcia St., I recently bought and renovated the house next door, Casa de la Luz (VRBO 859493), which is a larger 3 bedroom home. Together they make an idea "compound" for larger groups and families.
The home is quiet, warm and comfortable with all the authentic Santa Fe features you'd want: Viga ceilings, Kiva fireplace, hardwood floors and thick adobe walls.
This home also offers air conditioning, updated gourmet kitchen and bathrooms, large outside portal in back and private portal and hot tub off the Master bedroom. The home is expertly decorated and includes all the conveniences such as wireless Internet, HD TVs, and Sonos sound. Check out the incredible New Mexico art.
When you enter the quiet lane and you will immediately feel the serenity of the natural peace and quiet and take in the fresh mountain air.
On foot (and through the secret shortcut) you can easily explore the old adobe filled neighborhoods, jaunt over to Museum Hill, take an art amble on Canyon Road, and go to the historic Plaza - less than a mile - for the many restaurants and entertainment options.
During the winter, easy access up to the Santa Fe ski area (16 miles).
My husband and I rented this home for ourselves and another couple. We came in on motorcycles and the location was just perfect for numerous reasons: the motorcycles were in a safe location that was truly off the beaten path but we could all walk to the most desirable areas in downtown Santa Fe. We walked to the Plaza, down Canyon Road to art galleries and to El Farol for tapas and live music. The other couple loved the guitar and played every night, what a unique addition!
The home itself is wonderfully outfitted with new and modern appliances and remodeled to perfection with granite countertops and tile floors, new lighting and fixtures. The other couple had never experienced adobe construction and were amazed at how cool the house kept...we got to teach them a little about the hard trowel plaster walls inside that help keep it cool but are also beyond gorgeous.
On return from staying in the home, we went out and purchased the exact same bed for ourselves...we have been hunting a great mattress for years!! Thanks so much for the location, comfort and beauty of your home. We will definitely come back and stay.
This property is located in the right spot in Santa Fe. Quiet enough to sit outside and read every day and close enough to Canyon Road to know you made the right choice. It was large and comfortable and very clean. We really enjoyed the area and everything we needed was there. Personally, I would have added another television in the master and/or the guest bedrooms but that is not a necessity only a preference. Everything else was exactly as stated in the advertising....great! We stayed for 12 days and it was worth it! Fran was great to deal with and gave us tips about the area which were very helpful. We would definitely return.
We stayed in this very well equipped home with another couple during the W&C Festival Sept'16. The place was very well maintained, clean and had two parking spaces. The pantry and refrigerator had various items i.e., spices, salad dressings and there is a Keurig coffee maker with a variety of K-Pods available. We bought a box to replace the ones we used. The back outdoor patio was a nice amenity and the table large enough to easily have dinner for 6 to 8 if you wanted to. Beds were comfortable. Really have no complaints at all.
Finding it is a bit of a challenge but look for the street sign that isn't a street and you are 50% there. Fran was easy to communicate with and very responsive.
This home is a perfect location for a visit to Santa Fe. Fran has thought of everything and I mean everything. The home feels like you are staying in beautiful B and B. We lived that we could cook and not eat out every meal. Santa Fe has a great choice of grocery store Whole Foods, Albertsons, and Sprouts. We attended the balloon fiesta in Albaquerque and that is about an hour drive away. The hot tub at the house is a wonderful addition after a long day of walking. Fran has guides and is a phone call away while you stay there. She has really cornered the VRBO experience. Even without transportation Uber is available.
If you are looking to feel right at home in the heart of Santa Fe, this is it. Located within walking distance of Canyon Road with all the art galleries and restaurants, you are immersed in the town. Fran has done an outstanding job decorating and stocking the home with all your needs. She is available at any time. When we discovered that we might need some more wood for the fireplace, Fran brought a full load to the house and put together a new container to hold it all. Now that is customer service. Because she is a native of Santa Fe, her ideas on where to go etc. were fabulous. She gave us some great tips on routes and galleries on a day trip to Taos. In addition, she has an extensive list of things to do and places to eat in the home binder. It was so helpful. Her newest rental is right next door, also gorgeous and brand new and we got to see it. I would not hesitate to use Fran in the future. She is an amazing business woman. Great memories were made on this trip.
We stayed at Fran's property for four nights, and it was wonderful! The house is beautifully decorated. The beds are extremely comfortable, and the kitchen was especially well-appointed. It was very convenient to be so close to town as well. We really did not want to leave, and I know for sure that we will visit again in the future. Fran is great to work with and very accommodating! I really can't say enough great things about her home and the town of Santa Fe.
Hopefully, we will be back soon!
My husband and I were in Santa Fe on business and enjoyed our time at this special house. It was very special and the hot tub was a wonderful way to start and end the day. Fran was great to work with. Would absolutely stay here again.
