Wonderful location and such a comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at 111 Elena, the location was perfect and the home was so comfortable. We easily walked to and from the Plaza! I loved having a washer and dryer too, less clothes to pack 😊 The kitchen was supplied with everything we needed to cook with and the grocery store was only blocks away. Absolutely loved our stay here and we're looking forward to a return trip here again! ❤️

Very nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This charming casita is a great place to use as a base while you visit Santa Fe. It is a well within walking distance of the Plaza in downtown and given the amount of visitation and lack of parking around the Plaza, the ability to get there without driving is extremely important. If you are planning on visiting areas north of Santa Fe, i.e. Taos, Bandelier, you can go north without going through Santa Fe. The unit was well maintained and clean. Everything we needed was furnished. A couple of minor items came up but a text to the property manager resulted in quick response, The fenced patio out back would be a very private, very nice place to sit during good weather. The location is very quiet. The layout of the unit was very nice for two couples.

Convenient location; Great property

  • 5 of 5

It was a pretty easy walk into town to visit the shops and restaurants. We elected to drive to the farmer's/artist market in the Rail Yard district because we knew we would be weighted down for the trip back. The Rail Yard parking garage was a good choice since we exited right near the market and only cost us $1 for our visit. We walked between many of the art galleries on Canyon Rd, though the rough, haphazard paths are not pedestrian friendly.

The house was well appointed and comfortable. It was chilly in the living room/kitchen area until I discovered the chimney flue had been left open. The heated floors warmed the place up quickly after the flue was closed. We enjoyed both the wood burning fireplace and the gas barbecue.

We had minimal interaction with the owner since everything went so smoothly. Were very happy with our choice and have no concerns to recommend this property to others.

Wonderful little casita!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at this cute little casita! It was the perfect size and the location great for us. It's a hearty walk to the Plaza but we enjoyed the exercise. It is about 8 blocks but our packages were small so no problem. Loved the cold weather (was hoping for snow) but coming back to a warm and inviting place with a Christmas tree all lit up and decorated was like coming home! Loved it and would most definitely rent the same one again!
