Santa Fe House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful adobe home with gardens and views that sleeps 6-10 (optional Casita).

This quintessential double-walled adobe home is located at the end of a secluded dead-end street. The house has 3 large bedrooms each with its own bathroom and fireplace. The outdoor space has beautiful gardens and views to the mountains. Gaze at the stars while sitting outside in the gardens and you'll know why we named the home Casa Nova. This is a real oasis located about 1/2 way between the Plaza and Museum Hill on the historic east side. It's only a 10 to 15 minute walk to lower Canyon Road where the majority of Santa Fe's many art galleries are located.

This is a unique and beautiful home with historic significance. It is tastefully decorated and has an open feel with the touches that are typical of older adobe homes like plaster walls, nichos, wooden-beamed ceilings and a kiva fireplace in every room. The main dining room table seats 8 people comfortably and there are additional outdoor dining areas on the portal and in the garden.

You will have a feeling of old Santa Fe, but the home has all the modern conveniences as the result of an extensive remodel in 2011. The beds and linens are top quality and new. All of the appliances are new and the home has all the amenities like wireless internet and premium cable TV. The home decor is a blend of our Southwest roots (I'm from California and Jane is from south Texas) and our adopted Thai homeland where I work as a geologist. Jane is an artist and most of the artwork on the walls are naturally her own. The home is comfortable in all seasons with radiant heating and evaporative cooling (for a touch of humidity).

This house is a unique property in the heart of Santa Fe's Historic Eastside. We are proud to share this home and know you'll like it as much as we do.

If you would like to include the optional 2 bedroom Casita, please see HomeAway listing *910740 for details and photos.

Casa Nova: Secluded Adobe Home close to Canyon Rd and Plaza
average rating of 5.0 based on 22 reviews

beautiful house and gorgeous gardens, all done in Santa Fe style and tradition

  • 5 of 5

EIght college friends and sorority sisters from back in the 1960's (read: 8 old ladies) spent five days at Casa Nova. It was absolutely perfect. The home is comfortable, beautifully appointed and large enough that we all had our own space. There was only one downside ... No one wanted to go home.

Spectacular property in the heart of Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

Went with a group of 9 women so we rented the main house and casita for 5 days to explore and experience the Santa Fe area. Flying in from all over the country and meeting at the house, we all got there within minutes of each other at dusk. We entered the property using the detailed instructions and were blown away at how beautiful and well appointed it was! Amazingly decorated and exceeding our expectations I was congratulated for getting such an amazing dwelling. So close to the restaurants, galleries, plaza and spas but situated on a dead end street with vistas from the patio feeling private and secluded. Easy drive to all activities. There were even enough bathrobes for 10, hairdryers in each bathroom, luxurious linens. We ran out of time and didn't get to enjoy the house as much as we would have liked. The fire pit, and patio even had hidden art and the master suite had it's own private patio and study as well. Can't say enough about how perfect this property was. C

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and property. First class in every way. Close to town but gives the feeling of seclusion. Scott and Maika are the best property managers in Santa Fe.

Exactly what we hoped for and more

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house; comfortable, fun, well-designed and loaded with Southwestern charm. Comfy beds, well-stocked kitchen and plenty of space for relaxing. Quiet and private, yet easy access to town--a bit of a walk, but a very short drive. Five stars in spite of a problem with the wifi, but the manager bent over backward to get it resolved. Would definitely stay in this great house again.

Better than advertised!

  • 5 of 5

A few days with my daughter and daughter-in-law for a Mommy's Getaway; first time without all the kids! This is a lovely, traditional adobe home off the beaten path yet easy access to all Santa Fe has to offer. The renovations--kitchen, master suite--are superb. An absolutely first-rate property with attentive management. We had some problems with the wifi--which was needed--and Scott went the extra mile to resolve our issues. The home has so much Southwest charm, yet is elegant, comfortable and fun. Great beds, well-stocked kitchen and great, quiet patio and yard. Would certainly stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the gracious review. We are so glad you enjoyed our wonderful house in Santa Fe. We are so sorry the WiFi was down during much of your stay and we know it was more than an inconvenience. You may already know that it turned out to be a Comcast problem down the street. We would be thrilled to have you and your family return and would do everything to make it an even better stay. Best regards, Roger and Jane

Absolutely Perfect Santa Fe Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Casa Nova exceeded my every expectation; the house is a work of art - destination of itself, views from every window, loved the heated tiles in the bathroom, comfortable beds, over all gorgeous furnishings - quintessential Santa Fe! The kitchen provides every cook's dream for that day you must spend staying put, watching the light. We loved the easy stroll to the Plaza and lingering outside in the garden...especially after a night of snow. Thank you for a magical vacation - I will return!
