Sunny Adobe Casita, Private Courtyard, 1.2Mi To Plaza, convenient location!

Located in: Santa Fe
Beautifully renovated Santa Fe style Casita (guesthouse) 1.2mi from the plaza in a quiet, convenient neighborhood just a stones throw from the historic Camino Real, the oldest 'highway' in the US (1598). With an award-winning cafe two blocks away, the Railyard District & Farmer's Market just 0.5mi down the street and a beautiful, sunny Santa Fe setting, you'll never want to leave.

Beginning with the rustic red gate, you enter into your own private, shady courtyard (just enough for your dog to stretch their legs) with old lilac and traditional Santa Fe apricot trees (the original apricot trees in Santa Fe were brought from Spain with the conquistadors). The casita has two sets of french doors that are designed to open fully & let the beautiful Santa Fe weather inside, with a small sitting area situated on the patio.

Inside the casita, you'll find vaulted ceilings with traditional beamed ceilings (we call them vigas), and custom finished walls by local artist Hasita Harrington. A rustic kiva fireplace & handmade furniture offset the full kitchen with gas stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave/coffee maker, & disposal. The full kitchen is stocked with service for at least six, as well as basic utensils, pots, & accessories. The small rustic dining set features a table that accommodates four and was made by Scott!

On the other side of the room is a sofa/chaise lounge which expands into a queen size bed. A flat screen TV is available & provides access to a number of streaming channels in addition to Netflix & Amazon Video services. Our small library should have some interesting & esoteric reading material, in addition to games for young & old alike. Also, the book by Beverly Ungar was written by my mom - she loves a mystery! Spend a cozy evening playing games in front of the fireplace, or bask in the cool Santa Fe evening outside - our casita will make a homebody out of you!

Our casita has a pocket door to separate the main room/kitchen from the bedroom/bathroom area. The bathroom includes a standard tub/shower combo, toilet, & traditional Talavera sink. We've included basic soap, shampoo/conditioner, & a ton of towels to make you feel at home.

Next to the bathroom is a small washer/dryer combo with basic laundry supplies available. It's convenient, but don't forget that in the summer, your clothes will dry in half the time by leaving them out in the sun! Our super low humidity can air dry things in no time!

The bedroom has a queen size bed (which Scott also made), chest of drawers (refinished by my mom), and a full closet with hangers for you to unpack. Extra blankets are stacked in the closet in case our chilly nights get really cold! The bedroom is full of local talent, from the custom finished wall in the bedroom (again, painted by local artist Hasita Harrington), handmade nightstands, mirror by artist Bingham Haven, as well as oils & acrylics by regional artists.

This casita is located in front of our home, where Scott & I live with our son and two fuzzy dogs!

Santa Fe enjoys an average of 320+ days of sunshine per year - and capturing the light & clean air is a big part of being here.
Please keep in mind that Santa Fe has some of the the lowest water consumption per person in the US, with our per person rates averaging 95 gallons per person per day, compared to the national average of 150! We therefore ask everyone to be mindful of water use in our dry city. Finally, the property has three separate living spaces. In front is a gate to this casita, and around the back there are two more gates, one leads to our home, and the last one (the turquoise gate) is a studio which is also a vacation rental.

The location is amazing in that it is close to everything, without being in the middle of everything. It is a typical neighborhood in Santa Fe, which means it isn't really typical, it is a residential street, although you won't find any lawns or that sort of thing, most of the residences here are behind adobe walls. It's residential, yet just two blocks away from St. Francis, which is one of the larger thoroughfares in the city.

The "Tune Up" cafe, which was featured on the Food Network, is just three blocks away, as well as a laundromat two blocks in the opposite direction. If you like to cook or dine in, there is a Sprouts, Albertson's, and CVS about a mile away at DeVargas Center (there are restaurants & shops as well) as well as two Whole Foods & a Trader Joe's the same distance in the opposite direction. During the summer months, the Farmer's Market is a very popular place for local organic produce & beautiful handmade food & products. The Railyard District has a Violet Crown movie theater, restaurants, shops, galleries & events just 0.5mi down the street.

Canyon Road & the Santa Fe plaza are about 1.5mi away and offer endless choices for dining, gallery strolling, and shopping all steeped in 400 years of history. The plaza (or downtown) area is about a mile away and has zillions of shops, galleries, and restaurants as well as one of Santa Fe's specialties - museums! The New Mexico History Museum, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, Governor's Palace, New Mexico Museum of Art, & famed Institute of American Indian Art are all right there (not including our own Museum Hill, with a handful of other museums there!).

If you're taking a day trip up north to Chimayo or thereabouts, simply hop on to St. Francis and you're already on 285 north. If you'd like to head up the mountain for snowboarding or hiking, swing around Paseo de Peralta to Artist Rd & you're on your way.
