New 1 Br, 1 Ba 1100 Sf Contemporary Santa Fe Styled Home With Incredible Views.

Casa Miguel is a recently completed custom built home located in the desirable Historic Eastside of Santa Fe. 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 of Canyon Road. AC if its hot, plenty of fresh air if its not.

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

We di go to Sazon and its our new favorite. Thanks for referring it to us. We hope to rent from you again.

Magnificant Home ans Setting

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about the magnificent home. The setting is just breath taking. Beautiful snow capped mountains flu the panorama. The home itself comes with almost every conceivable amenity. Full direct TV service, carefree fast internet service are just a few. The kitchen has top of the line appliances. Being in Santa Fe is a shoppers dream. The Southwest American Indian influence abounds. A must for any traveler is shopping around the square. Restaurants abound and the problem really is one of where to eat. They all are excellent. While there don't forget to try some of unique Margaritas. I preferred the top shelf made with Cointreau, but the variety of mixes are endless.

Getting back to the lodging, the owner goes out of her way to protect your privacy. I found Christina to be very helpful and when she was away we were in the good hands of her assistant Maria. No questing unanswered.

I would highly recommend this property.

Just as pictured - lovely home

  • 4 of 5

The home was just as pictured, very clean, and had a wonderful tub with endless hot water. Wonderful light in the morning (if you want it, the bedroom can easily be turned into quite a dark room).

The only thing we weren't totally happy with was the bed; it's extremely firm and wasn't at all comfortable for two side sleepers who like a medium firm bed. I'd strongly recommend bringing a topper with you if you like a softer bed. The road is high enough that if people are walking by they can see in - not a big issue with the blinds, but something to consider if you want total privacy.

Overall, this was a great place to stay if you like really firm beds.

Owner's Response: Dear Renee, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay. I only wish that you would have reached out to me while you were here so I could have tried to make you more comfortable. I would have gladly gone and purchased a mattress topper to make the bed more to your liking. I will buy one though and have it on hand for anyone who prefers a softer mattress. Again thank you for choosing to stay at Casa Miguel. Wishing you all the best, Christina

This home truly looks like the photos.

  • 5 of 5

This distinctive home is contemporary, comfortable, and perfectly maintained. The home is clean and well-outfitted with kitchen, linen and laundry supplies. Casa Miguel is located in a quiet, restful area of Santa Fe with a gorgeous view, yet it is close to the city plaza. The owners of the home were accessible and friendly, but never intruded on our privacy.

Casa Miguel fit our needs to a T...

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in October 2016 at Christina and Michael's casa. It was clean, comfortable, quiet and well-equipped. It is open and light-filled and has a sunny patio facing the mountains. We liked having a full-size washer and dryer and a kitchen with all the necessary dishes, appliances, equipment and gadgets. It was warm enough so we didn't have to use the heating system and the two ceiling fans were all that was needed in the afternoons and at night. The bed and linens were very comfortable and the bathroom towels were of nice quality and quantity. The location is close to downtown and it's an easy walk to the plaza. We enjoyed spectacular weather and were able to hike every day soaking up a lot of sun, sky and green chile! The street to the casa (more like an alley which seems to be the norm in SF) is narrow and a little cluttered, however, that is forgotten once you arrive. We highly recommend Casa Miguel and hope to stay with Christina and Michael again. Thank you for your hospitality! Mary & Greg

Vacation Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely beautiful home with all the amenities you would want or need. Very neat & clean which is a must for our standards. Nicely decorated with the southwestern theme. The home is a great location for the total Santa Fe experience. The owners were more than gracious & wonderful to deal with. We will definitely be back when their calendar & ours permit.

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!
