Right around the corner from this Casita is Larragoite Park with lots of green space, tennis courts, basketball courts, playgrounds and a dog walk area.

Optionally, you can choose to have a local chef come to the Casita and cook you a 'traditional New Mexican meal' while you enjoy margaritas and talk about your day. Local Santa Fe Chef Alma will delight you with home made tortillas, guacamole, enchiladas, and dessert or any meal of your choosing cooked right in the Casita while you relax. Please contact the owner if you are interested in a special dinner prior to booking. Times, dates, and costs are negotiated with the Chef.
Unwind over dinner on the private front porch or relax in the secluded back garden/patio area after a day of sight seeing in Santa Fe. Or just relax and curl up next to the kiva fireplace to enjoy a movie or read a book.

I have lived in Santa Fe since 2004. While I have spent 20+ years in other areas of New Mexico, Santa Fe is by far my favorite place in New Mexico due to the rich influences of the local cultures, the artists, and its laid back style! There is always something to do in Santa Fe!
Marcy Albin purchased this house in 2006
I bought this house due to its central location and ease of access to all of Santa Fe. Initially I bought it as a place for my children to live in while they worked in Santa Fe however with its easy access to downtown, museums, restaurants, and more we all fell in love with it. I especially like the Baca Street Art District with its easy going atmosphere, outdoor cafes, artist studios and galleries. If you want a taste of the real Santa Fe where the locals hang out, this is it. As Canyon Road and many areas of Santa Fe have gotten more and more expensive, many artists have chosen to move to the Baca Street Art District and set up galleries and studios. Recently Santa Fe developed the Railyard Park with trails, studios, galleries, shops, and green space in the Baca Street Art District, so more and more artists are relocating to this area.
While staying at my property, I enjoy strolling down to the galleries for art openings, to the cafes for breakfast, or to the Acequia trail for a walk. Once on the Acequia trail, its an easy 15-20 minute walk or bike into North Railyard Park to the Santa Fe Farmers Market where there is more shopping, more art galleries, and great restaurants. Top that all off with a little music and some brews from the local microbrewery and stroll or bike home!
Additionally, I always take my visiting family down the street to the Liquid Light Glass Studio for a glass-blowing lesson. Everyone always loves it, including the grandchildren!
This little casita is a charming hideaway that is close to attractions without being in the center of town. The neighborhood is modest, but quiet. Beds were comfortable, and it was easy to keep the house the right temperature. Everything was clean, clean, clean. The kitchen is suitably equipped, and the owners thoughtfully left us coffee and fresh half-and-half as well as a bouquet of fresh flowers. The patio is a nice place to enjoy a drink in the shade, and there is even a tiny back yard. It's within walking district of the little Baca Street art district, which we probably enjoyed more than Canyon Drive, though it's tiny. The casita might be a little low-ceilinged for the extremely tall, and there is only one bathroom, but this shouldn't be a drawback for most. While in Santa Fe, do not miss Meow Wolf! We went twice, and I would have been happy to go again.
We had everything we needed for a great stay. I thought the house was darling. Nice neighborhood, walking distance to grocery stores if you don't have a car! You could even walk to downtown Santa Fe. The beds are comfortable and great kitchen to cook in! We'd stay there again if we go back.
we loved the casa. It was close to many things and decorated beautifully. I agree about the laundry being loud under the master, but it was nice to have the washer and dryer available. The problem that we had for a few days, was that the gas had been turned off to the fireplace and it was very cold. The property manager sent someone to fix it, but to no avail and the owners were unavailable to call. We turned on the oven and it helped and the guest room had a wall heater that helped them. We moved the electric heater out of the master to help heat the living space and so that left us very cold at night. We worked through it and otherwise had a lovely time.
Perfect stay. Darling casita. Cool neighborhood. Jody is super helpful and thoughtful. Would absolutely stay here again.
Jody is a very nice person has done a great job of decorating and providing the necessities in this lovely home. Would be nice to have a gas BBQ but not a big deal.
The laundry access is from the outside and the washer/dryer is situated right under the master bedroom of this unit. Tenants in the other unit on this property also have access to the washer/dryer and were doing their laundry at 10 p.m. one evening. We could clearly hear both the washer and dryer running while trying to sleep. Would suggest that tenants in the other unit be asked to refrain from using the laundry after a certain time.
I would agree with all of the postive comments in previous reviews. Jody has put so much thought into every detail in her home, and the result is a beautiful and comfortable place to stay. I don't think I have ever seen such a clean VRBO--it was immaculate. Jody has done such a professional job and that is a joy to experience.
One thing that might be helpful for people to know is that the twin beds seem smaller than normal twin beds. However they worked well. The King bed is very comfortable and it was so nice to hear the birds outside as we woke up--a very restful experience.
I also really liked the location. Some areas in Santa Fe are just a bit too precious for me, but this neighborhood had character (while feeling safe). It's also centrally located so getting anywhere is a breeze. We had a great time and I would recommend this spot highly.
Enjoy outdoor recreation at Larragoite Park with playground, basketball & tennis courts, dog walks, and green space right around the corner from Casita. Bike or walk Acequia trail into the heart of Santa Fe to visit the Farmers Market or a microbrewery. Explore the network of trails that runs throughout the town and into the mountains. Do some sightseeing and walk to Galleries, Studios, and Cafes all along Baca Street. Easy access to grocery shopping, entertainment, and the Plaza area. Participate in the many festivals that happen in Santa Fe throughout the year. Enjoy Spring, Summer and Fall in Santa Fe at the Santa Fe Opera, Spanish Market, International Folk Art Market, the famous Indian Market, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, and Juan Siddi Flamenco Performances. Fall rocks and rolls with the Zozobra Festival, the Santa Fe Wine and Chili Festival and the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in October in Albuquerque, NM. Don't miss out on all the winter sports and fun from skiing, snowboarding, sledding, and snowshoeing all over the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Santa Fe is also full of beautiful museums and art galleries. Make sure you don't miss the Georgia O'Keeffe museum downtown. Anytime of the year, there is always something to do in Santa Fe!
