1BR Condo Vacation Rental in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Vacation Rentals

Downtown Luxury 'Perfect for Couples' Weekly/Monthly Rates, Parking, Patio, Pets

Located in: Santa Fe
Casita Cynthia is a beautiful luxury condominium in the heart of Santa Fe, at the elegant El Corazon de Santa Fe condominium complex. It is one of the most desirable units in one of the most desirable properties in Santa Fe, on the ground floor, with views of the mountains and the historic East Side from the adobe-wall-enclosed patio. It truly is a short, easy walk to the Plaza and to the O'Keeffe Museum (3-4 blocks, depending on how you count, five minutes, on safe sidewalks). The location is ideal.

RATE NOTES: I have daily rates and discounted weekly and monthly rates, which vary with the seasons. The platform's rate calendar only displays the daily rate, not the discounted weekly and monthly rates. You can get them by entering a longer date range, or I can send you a detailed yearly rate table upon request.

NO CLEANING FEE. Exit cleaning is included in your rental.

CALENDAR NOTES: I keep my calendar up to date, so that if my calendar shows availability, the condo should be available. Occasionally there is a short lag time between a guest expressing a desire to book and making a deposit, or when a guest requests a hold while researching flights; I try to note any of those holds here. I will respond quickly if you have questions about availability. Feel free to call, e-mail, or text any time. I'm usually in the Mountain Time Zone or the Atlantic Time Zone, so late night/early morning inquiries from other time zones may receive a response several hours later.

MASTER BEDROOM: The master bedroom has a new king sized bed and new luxury linens. The master bath has dual sinks, granite counter tops, and a large slate & marble-tiled walk-in shower. French doors open onto the private adobe-walled patio from the master bedroom.

STUDY/GUEST ROOM: The study has a full-size sleeper sofa (very high end, with memory foam mattress: honestly & truly extremely comfortable). This room could accommodate a visitor or a third guest during your stay, but it is tight when used as a bedroom--when the sofa is opened there is not a lot of extra room to move around. The bathroom adjacent to the study has a single sink and a slate-tiled shower.

The study has a full-sized desk and ergonomic work chair. This is a recent change; photos coming soon to replace the photo with the second TV, which is no longer there.

KITCHEN: The kitchen has Jenn-Air appliances and granite counter tops and gourmet cooking equipment. There are everyday dishes and fancy china for your special occasions.

LAUNDRY: The laundry area includes a washer and dryer. Ironing board, iron, and detergent.

LIVING ROOM: The living room includes a down-filled sofa, "smart TV," and gas-fired kiva fireplace. French doors open onto the private patio. An authentic Knoll womb chair provides the ultimate in comfortable seating.

DINING AREA: The dining area is between the kitchen and the living room, with an antique Spanish Colonial dining table, and seating for six. The antique country French cupboard holds fancy china and glassware.

PATIO: The adobe-walled private patio is shady, with professionally maintained gardens, a dining table, and Lafuma lounge chairs.

AMENITIES AND DECOR: There are slate floors with radiant heating throughout the home. The gas kiva fireplace in the living room turns on instantly. There is air conditioning for summer.

I am retired from the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs, in the extensive state museum system, and the condo is furnished with much locally-made furniture and southwestern art.

FREE UNDERGROUND PARKING: The condo comes with its own parking space in the secure underground parking lot on the premises. Parking in central Santa Fe can be tight, so this space is a real plus.

EXERCISE ROOM: There is an exercise room on the premises. There is no swimming pool, but Santa Fe has a several excellent community pools, with fees of a few dollars. The Fort Marcy pool is within walking distance, and the Genoveva Chavez Center, with a spectacular large pool, is a 10-minute drive away.

CONDO LAYOUT: The condo is ideal for a single person or couple, and can easily accommodate an additional guest during a stay. It would be tight for two couples; the couple in the smaller room would envy the couple in the master bedroom. It works for parents and a teen or adult son or daughter, but it is not suitable for a family that includes small children: there is not much space for play and there is some not-childproof art and furniture.

If you have questions about whether or not the condo will work for your party, don't hesitate to ask and I'll do my best to answer you honestly and right away.

ACCESSIBILITY: There is an elevator from the underground parking area to the condo complex courtyard, and the unit is a short walk along safe paths from the elevator. There are two short steps (about 4") from the sidewalk to the front door), but otherwise the home is all level and on the ground floor. There are no steps out to the patio, and there is a back gate that opens onto the Grant Street sidewalk from the patio without steps, however there is no parking on Grant Street, and the patio door must be locked from the inside, so this no-steps access is not a true entrance and exit. Hence, the home is very comfortable, easy, and safe for anyone with mobility issues, but not truly ADA accessible. I'm happy to answer any questions about accessibility.

LONG TERM RENTALS: I welcome inquiries from legislators, the film industry, house-hunters, and others seeking longer term rentals. For longer term rentals, please contact me with your desired dates and I will send you a quote. Month-long rentals include a housekeeping visit mid-month. Additional housekeeping can be arranged.

Rentals longer than one month may have a different deposit and payment schedule, to be discussed during booking.

If you are interested in a month-long rental that spans 2 different months, or anything else that doesn't seem to fit my rate schedule, just ask for quote, and I will try to accommodate your plans.

RENTALS 30 DAYS OR LONGER ARE NOT TAXED. I will adjust your quote and remove the tax from the quote (this platform's system adds it and I need to remove it manually). If you wish to book for 30 days or longer, it is best not to use "Instant Confirmation," as you will be paying the tax, and I will have to either cancel your reservation and send you a new quote, or refund the tax. It is simpler if you contact me with a request, and I then adjust your quote and remove the tax, and send the quote back to you for review and booking. I will do this very quickly.

CANCELLATION POLICY: 50% of your payment is due upon booking and 50% is due 30 days before arrival. If you cancel, monies paid will be refunded to the extent that I am able to re-book the condo.

VRBO/Homeaway offers reasonably priced vacation insurance. You will see a quote for this insurance at checkout and can examine the policy before you purchase it. The cost is about 4-5% of your rental payment. I feel confident in recommending this insurance. In 2018 it paid claims for two guests, one who became sick a few weeks before travel and another who could not travel due to a severe winter storm which closed I-40.

TAXES AND FEES: In accordance with New Mexico law, I collect 8.475% Gross Receipts Tax and 7% Lodging tax. NOTE: NO TAX ON STAYS OF 30 DAYS OR LONGER. Quotes on this platform for 30-day stays may show a tax. If so, I will adjust the quote and remove the tax.

NO CLEANING FEE. Cleaning is included.

Pet Fee: $75 (one-time fee, not daily, dogs only), with pet agreement.

Third Guest Fee: $50 (one-time fee; not daily).

Service Fee: In February 2016, HomeAway/VRBO implemented a service fee, which is a percentage of the rental payment. To offset the cost of this fee to travelers, I eliminated my exit cleaning fee.

Security Deposit/Damage Insurance: $200, refundable within one week of departure (usually more quickly), for stays under one month. This is charged to your credit card on your second payment, 30 days before arrival. If you would prefer to purchase damage insurance through VRBO/HomeAway, starting at $59 for $1,500 of damage insurance, please let me know, and I can adjust your quote.

Longer rentals, including for film industry or the NM legislative session stays, may require a larger refundable security deposit and/or insurance, to be discussed at the time of booking. They may also require a different payment schedule or cancellation agreement, to be discussed.

HOLD POLICY: I can put a 24-hour hold on a reservation to allow time to make airline reservations.

PRE-ARRIVAL INFO & ACCESS TO THE CONDO: Upon request or upon booking, I will send you detailed info about the condo and the neighborhood. Upon booking, you will be invited to access VRBO/HomeAway's mobile app and I will send you access codes and entry information for the condo and the parking garage. I'm always available to answer questions about the condo, Santa Fe, and New Mexico travel.

CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT: Check-in time is 5pm. Check-out time is 10am. We accommodate requests for early check-in and late check-out when we can.

SPECIAL REQUESTS: We leave a welcome basket of snacks and New Mexico red wine. If you have any special needs or requests, please let me know and we will try to accommodate you.

GMAIL USERS: Gmail sends VRBO/Homeaway correspondence to the 'Promotions' folder and it looks like spam, so if you are expecting to hear from me or the company, please check that folder, or check with me to see if you've missed anything.

NO SMOKING: No smoking in the condo, patio, or condo complex.

INSPECTED AND LICENSED BY CITY OF SANTA FE: Casita Cynthia is inspected and licensed by the City of Santa Fe as a short term rental, for a maximum of 4 guests.
