The house sits on a hill providing some of the very best views that Santa Fe has to offer of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Sun and Moon Mountains and off to the west for ultimate sunsets. It is only a 10 minute walk to the Plaza and is a ¼ mile to the famed Arts & Crafts Canyon Road.

Casa Miguel is filled with custom made furniture (built by the owner) and displays original oil paintings on its diamond finished plaster walls that exceed 11’ in height. This beautifully appointed one private bedroom, one luxury bath home is 1100 square feet with excellent natural light throughout the day. The floor plan is open concept allowing for a gracious flow and easy living. The kitchen is a cook’s delight with high-end appliances, thoughtfully designed cabinetry, and granite counter tops throughout.

From the over-sized French doors you can step out onto the charming flagstone patio. There is a rose garden and the yard is enclosed by lilac bushes that surround the perimeter. This is a lovely spot to watch the sun rise or set, or simply take in the clean mountain air and views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

to Santa Fe and Casa Miguel played a large part in that. It is so nice to be able to spread out - lots of room - so quiet at night - hard to leave (heavy sigh.....)

We shall return!!

Wonderful stay at Casa Miguel!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodations at Casa Miguel. We were very happy to relax in this beautiful house after touring about Santa Fe and taking in all that it offers.

Love the location of this property to downtown, easy access to delightful restaurants, shopping, historical sights, museums and marvelous National parks.

The house was well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We cooked our breakfast every morning in the lovely kitchen after gathering up some great veggies from the Saturday market. It was nice to enjoy the peaceful beauty of the morning from the patio and take in that Santa Fe sky. We look forward to returning someday soon,

Thanks for a great vacation!

Terrific space & great location

  • 4 of 5

Christina's house is in a great location and easily walkable (less than 10 mins) to the famed Canyon Road, even in the snow! It's a beautifully maintained, well crafted and designed 'adboe' home. Modern, warm, tasteful, very clean and high quality furnishings, linens etc. Very quiet. Parking space right outside. Very convenient. It feels private and tucked away....few passers by as the road is a cul de sac. All windows and doors have quality blinds for more privacy if desired. A really comfortable space to live in, very easy to feel at home right away. Radiant floor heating in main room and bedroom keeps the house very warm. Beautiful view to the mountains and can sit inside or out and watch the changing light in the skies. Exceptionally clean with many provisions - linen cupboard with towels etc. Great walk in wardrobe space off bedroom with plenty hanging and drawer space helps keep luggage etc out of bedroom and main living space. All amenities provided. Terrific and swift communication from Christina. She is very personable and friendly, very trustworthy. Gave us some great tips on Santa Fe. We were able to partake in the annual tradition of the Farolita walk on Christmas Eve - a really special experience. Santa Fe at Christmas is a very special place to be. 10 min walk to Pilates, or great little place called Travel Bug - combo of cafe and amazing travel books, maps etc. Or a quick drive into downtown. And great access to the extraordinary outdoors!

Perfect for Us!

  • 5 of 5

Christina & Michael (owners) have provided the perfect casita for a romantic get-a-way. We particularly enjoyed the quietness of the location, yet it is so convenient to the historic downtown and its many sights, restaurants, and shopping. It is also well-located for day trips outside Santa Fe. We ate several meals out, but also enjoyed using the weber grill conveniently located on the patio through the oversize glass french doors. In fact we spent several evenings enjoying the views and night sky from the patio. The owners provide everything needed for preparing and serving a meal, enjoying a glass of wine, and washing a load of clothes. There are plenty of towels, pillows and paper products and a daily newspaper which we appreciated very much. If these things please you too, you will not be disappointed with this lovely home.

Perfect attention to every detail!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home. So many windows and so much light - and so many stars at night without moving off your pillow! A perfect location to walk into town and Canyon Road area. Great attention to detail and cleanliness in every room - the kitchen had every necessary gadget needed for cooking as well as a small stock of food staples for convenience. Our hosts were very attentive the few times we needed them for questions. The finest VRBO we have stayed in!
