ReviewsWrite a review
We stayed at this casita for the Thanksgiving week with our two children and our dog. Things were a little tight for the five of us, but the casita is lovely - nicely appointed, clean, pretty and comfortable. It was great for me that the owners were readily available and eager to help with any difficulty. We loved the fireplace for which nicely chopped wood was provided. And the view from the hill on which it sits is both impressive and soothing.

My husband & I stayed in this casita for an extended weekend & had an AMAZING time. You feel like you are in a secluded area with a beautiful view but you are actually very close to everything! Anything that we could ever have needed was provided. We had such a great time that we will definitely stay here the next time we are in Santa Fe!

Great Little Casita
Great Little Casita
My husband & I stayed at this casita for 3 nights & found it to be exactly what we were looking for - private, has great views, comfortable furniture, place to do some cooking & just relax. The pictures are true to advertising. The casita was clean & beautifully decorated with a southwest flare. It's only a 10 min. drive down the Old Santa Fe Trail to the heart of downtown. So while you are staying in "seclusion" you are really not far from the galleries, restaurants, & museums. David, the owner, was great & easy to work with! He was very attentive to our needs (while maintaining our privacy)- & provided several light bulbs that needed replacing in a very timely manner & made sure that everything was in working order. He also provided extra cooking dishes & utensils (several of which we didn't need or use) but if you want to do some extensive cooking - you have it. That also includes a gas grill - which we enjoyed doing some southwest grilling. Several other amenities were provided in the bathroom - soaps, shampoo, lotion, paper products, hair dryer, etc. with ample towels. There is no bathtub, but the shower was great with a shower head that provides several different settings of water flow -very nice! David was in the process of switching his VCR to a DVD player. So at our visit there were many VHS tapes but no DVDs to view. We had brought a few of our own to view so it was no problem but you may want to find out if there will be DVDs to view at your visit (or bring some of your own). He has a CD / tape /radio player to use if you want to listen to music. There were games & several books provided to read. I really liked a book that listed several different hikes you can take in the Santa Fe area. My husband enjoyed the books about Egypt. There were varieties for every taste. This is a great place for a single person or a couple looking to "get away from it all" without being too far from the city. Thank you David for a very wonderful & relaxing stay!!! We will definitely stay with you again on our return to Santa Fe!!!

About the owner: David and Wendy enjoy hiking and being out in nature and love living in Santa Fe where the sunsets and skies are breathtaking. David has two wonderful grown kids and Both Wendy and David are semi-retired. David is an avid golfer and hiker and Wendy is a sculptor and painter. They enjoy traveling and together have been on great adventures in Italy, Vancouver, Greece, Turkey and various states in the US. They like dogs and allow well-behaved ones to stay at their Sky Island Casitas. They love their property with gorgeous views in Santa Fe and are happy to share it with others. They see a lot of interesting films, listen to speakers, take cooking classes, enjoy live theater and all kinds of music. They enjoy meeting the many interesting people who have come to Sky Island Casitas for the last 6 years.
Why the Owner Chose Southeast:
David fell in love with Santa Fe, and after visiting as often as possible from Austin Texas for many years, he found that the property he often stayed at was for sale. So he bought it and chose to share it with others. Wendy came later and was blown away by the beautiful view and lovely gardens. They love meeting the people who stay here and are not surprised that many return year after year.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the privacy and quiet of this property combined with the convenience of being minutes from hiking or downtown. We are surrounded on all sides by undeveloped land. We watch magnificent sunsets and lightening shows from our balcony. Sky Island Casitas has three houses on the property, but they all are secluded and private.
