Property type house

About the property

Intimate Location Close To Canyon Road And Galleries

Casa Contenta is a Wonderful Adobe Home located just off one of Santa Fe’s most historic streets, Acequia Madre, which translates literally to 'Mother Ditch.' The narrow and winding street, which roughly parallels Canyon Road, is one of the prettiest in Santa Fe for a stroll, especially when the water is running.

This Territorial-Style House features Three Bedrooms, each with an Ensuite Bath. The open concept floor plan includes a Lovely Living Area with Fireplace, a Large Dining Area which can seat eight, and a Gourmet Kitchen with Wolf and Sub Zero appliances. There are Antique Mexican Doors, Beams and Vigas, Hand Troweled Plaster Walls and French Doors opening on to a relaxing Portal which overlooks a Professionally Landscaped Garden. Have a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening while enjoying the Outdoor Fireplace!

Casa Contenta is just a few steps away from Canyon Road and its many art galleries and restaurants, and about a 30 minute scenic stroll (or a 5 minute drive) to the Plaza and Museum Hill. The Dale Ball Hiking Trails are also just a short distance away.

Casa Contenta is a licensed City of Santa Fe Short-Term Vacation Rental. City Permit #: 13-00119900

An Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house for our family gathering. It is spacious and beautiful with artwork and amenities that are top notch. The setting and outside seating areas are a delight. We found the owners to be very responsive to any of our needs. I highly recommend this house and hope to go back.

Quintessential Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 adults who gathered from the east and west coasts for a week's reunion and to attend the opera festival. Casa Contenta is exactly as pictured- comfortable, elegant and fully equipped- and the location is ideal- steps from Canyon Road and the Plaza. Casa Contenta truly rates 5 stars.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, comfortable and functional. It is very well appointed and very well located. It was well-suited for our family of 5 adults. The furniture was ample and comfortable for relaxing after a long day of touring. We dined on the patio and played board-games on the table in the dining area. Everything was top-notch. The owners are clearly generous and understand the needs of their guests. Compliments all the way around! As far as the location...we walked all over Santa Fe, drove to Bandolier and Taos, and took a river tour. There are excellent galleries, restaurants and museums a short walk away. And it is a 15 or 20 minute drive to the Santa Fe Opera which is an open-air venue with beautiful views.

Beautiful House - Could not have been more perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautiful! We rented it for a girls week and we all loved the house. The owner thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. It is beautifully decorated, but still very comfortable. We were a block from Canyon Road were there are a lot of galleries and restaurants. 10 minute walk to downtown.

Santa Fe is a wonderful town - it lives up to the name "Land of Enchantment". Also enjoyed day trips in the area, Bandolier National Park, Taos, Tent Rock.

Perfect Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a totally enjoyable family stay with our grown family in this beautiful home. It was perfectly laid out, furnished and appointed for an relaxing stay. Because we have a young grandson, we wanted to be able to prepare meals at the house and just enjoy each others company. This home did not disappoint in any way. From the perfect kitchen, dining, living and library (you can tell so much about owners from the books provided in a library) areas to the beautifully landscaped backyard and comfortable patio, we enjoyed all aspects of the home. We hope to be able to return in the near future.
