My parents and I recently enjoyed this elegantly appointed home. Beds, baths, living areas were beautifully decorated, and very comfortable for us "senior citizens." The casita is conveniently located to the Plaza, grocery shopping, and tourist attractions, and yet so quiet at night that we wouldn't have known we were just footsteps away from major thoroughfares. The owner is very responsive and helpful. Highly recommend!

Charming home

  • 4 of 5

We had an enjoyable stay in Santa Fe. This home is within walking distance of the took about 10 minutes (walking slow) to get to the shops. The home was very clean and the beds were comfy. It was a little warm in the living area during the daytime for my comfort level, but the bedrooms were nice and cool. Just two suggestions - it would have nice to have some basic staples in the kitchen (cooking oil for one) and the back patio needs some weeds pulled. Other than that we really enjoyed our stay.

Great Place to stay in Santa Fe!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us, one couple and a single friend. Beds are SUPER comfortable and individual heat/cool units in bedrooms keep everyone happy. We enjoyed the private patio both mornings and evenings. And of course it is walking distance to the Plaza and an easy drive to many attractions. You will be happy to stay here!!!
