Downtown Santa Fe: A Historical, 3/2 Beautiful Casita with all the amenities!
About Barbara Rice
I owned a gallery in New Mexico that burned to the ground in 2010. It was filled with amazing art and it was a devastating loss. I waited 2 years to decide if I should open a gallery again, but I missed it so much. So we went to Santa Fe, a place we loved to visit and began to look. What we found was meant to be...the Casita Turquoise is an extension of our amazing art. Beautiful furnishings, great art, and that "Santa Fe" feel. And located across from the Santa Fe River and park was the icing on the cake! I don't think any other VRBO is closer than we are to the famous Plaza and walking distance to shopping, restaurants, museums, and so much more!
Barbara Rice purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Barbara Rice chose Downtown
This property was not for sale when I made my husband stop and look at it. It was lonely and vacant, and I knew it had a story. We found the owners, told them our story, and the rest is history! The building is so unique with its old doors, fireplaces, and rooms that wander. The rooms are adorned with art from the gallery and so it is not only a place to stay, but it is a show place! Santa Fe is so full of art, history, culture, food, and wine which makes it a great place to visit---and our casita the best place to stay!
What makes this Condo unique
Casita Turquoise is in such a great location right in the downtown area. With the Santa Fe River and park right across the street, it is a nice place to just sit and people watch. The building is historic, with high ceilings, vigas, adobe plaster with bit of hay in it, but yet with all the modern conveniences! The full kitchen makes it nice to have breakfast and a hot cup of coffee right out your door or in the courtyard. Casita Turquoise is in walking distance of just about everything! Restaurants, the Plaza, Canyon Road, the Railyard, Museums, the State Capitol, and all of the hotels. Plus, shopping right below and all around! You will love the beautifully decorated southwestern décor and everything will make you comfortable! Great beds for a comfy nights sleep, and little extras like bottled water and snacks make it memorable. Historic, yet you have your Directv and internet available too!

This is our third visit to "our" Casita in Santa Fe. Absolutely love the location and ambiance. The unit is well appointed and maintained and service is readily available.
Thanksgiving in beautiful Santa Fe
My family and I enjoyed the Casita Turqoise immensely. The location could not be better for access to so much. Only a block and a half from the Plaza and countless shops, art galleries and wonderful restaurants. Thanksgiving day we were greeted by a wonderful snowfall that lasted the majority of the day. The casita was well appointed and very welcoming. Perfect for our family of five plus our 11 year old sheltie. I’d highly recommend Casita Turqoise for building lasting memories. Barbara was very attentive and friendly. We’ll be going back in the future.
A true gem!!
We planned a regional family reunion in Santa Fe and were fortunate to find this great place!! We came in from Arizona and the place far exceeds the expectations set by the listing!
Beautiful, updated, comfortable and A GREAT location. Barbara is an excellent host and was a pleasure to work with. Everyone in our party was so pleased and other family members who stayed elsewhere were envious.
We had an excellent long weekend in Santa Fe and this property contributed greatly to that. Many blessings!
Perfect location! The house was comfortable and was ideal
Great place for a girls trip in Santa Fe!
Great location. Very convenient to the plaza and shopping. The house was clean, very comfortable. We had a great stay!
We had a great time here. Close to everything and Barbara was a great host. Her store and rental are charming
This casita is located right in the historic downtown area where all the shopping, restaurants, museums, events, festivals, and so much more are! This is the place to be when you are in Santa Fe. The art, the history, and the culture are amazing and this casita is in the heart of it all! Located in a historic building with old doors, wood floors, kiva fireplaces and more! There are restaurants on each corner, the oldest house and oldest church one block away, the Inn of the Loretto is just steps away and the La Fonda is one block away. The Loretto Chapel with the mysterious staircase is right around the corner, and the Santa Fe River is across the street. The State Capitol is one block away and you can walk to the plaza in 2 minutes. Adjoining the Casita is a beautiful 10,000 sf courtyard with a crystal quartz fountain that flows continuously. Spinning minerals, beautiful flowers, and a view of the locals. Cant find a better place!
