Property description

Welcome to Casa Guadalupe! Anytime of the year is the perfect time to visit Santa Fe, and Casa Guadalupe is your ideal refuge! Situated in the historic Guadalupe District of downtown Santa Fe, Casa Guadalupe is just around the corner from The Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe at the historic Santuario de Guadalupe. Casa Guadalupe is ideal for two couples or a couple with two children. This vacation home with it's Craftsman-style interior, is reminiscent of a northern New Mexico farmhouse from the outside. Central evaporative cooling provides a welcome retreat from the mid-day summer sun. The house sleeps four people comfortably (1 king bed, two twins) and has two bathrooms. The main bathroom is located adjacent to both bedrooms and has a combination shower & tub with loads of decorative Mexican tile and granite counter-top. The second bathroom has a wonderful steam shower and is located just off the family room/den area The modern kitchen is completely equipped for the serious cook, with granite countertops, loads of cabinet space and all the kitchen-ware and appliances you might need during your stay. In addition, you can grill your burgers, chicken or steaks on the outside gas BBQ located on the private flagstone patio. Built in the 1920's, this Craftsman-style home has been completely restored and upgraded, with distinctive features such as the specially pigmented hand-troweled plaster walls, wood floors throughout, a modern kitchen, new family room/den and steam shower. The family room and living room are well-separated, so mom can quietly enjoy her book in front of a pleasant fire in the living room while dad and the kids watch a DVD in the family room. Skylights in the family room area, the main bathroom, as well as the hallway leading to the two bedrooms and loads of windows throughout the house, create a light and airy interior to this historic downtown home. A door separates the hallway that leads to the bedrooms and main bathroom from the remainder of the house, providing for additional quiet space for those guests who may wish to retire earlier than the rest of their travel party. Wake up in the master bedroom's king-size bed to light filtered through lace curtains with glimpses of the eighty-year-old apple tree in the quiet and private, gated back yard and gardens. The master bedroom has plenty of built-in closet space. The second bedroom has two single beds, two bureaus and ample closet space. Convenient off-street parking for 2 vehicles.

Landscape architect-designed gardens, both front and back, provide an intimate retreat during the warmer months, with plenty of outdoor patio seating and tables, gently accompanied by a soothing water feature. The walled back yard provide privacy and safety for your family. Inside, the walls burst with artwork. Perfect for the family vacation or romantic get-away. You will remember your stay at comfortable, private and conveniently located "Casa Guadalupe" for years to come.

In the spring, summer & fall you'll enjoy the lush enclosed gardens of Casa Guadalupe, while you sip a cool drink on the flagstone patio in the shade of majestic apple, pear and cherry trees on the property. Many of our guests who are visiting during the time of year when the trees are bearing fruit, will use the fruit for baking and cooking. The gardens are planted with many blooming perennials which provide great color, especially in the spring and summer.

Additional detailed information about Casa Guadalupe and its amenities are available by request-- please ask!

Exceptional festivals & art markets abound throughout the summer months including Spanish Market, the International Folk Art Market and Indian Market (the largest & most prestigious Native American art market in the world) to name a few, drawing crowds from around the world. July & August also ushers in the renown Santa Fe Opera, with performances nearly every night of the week. During the winter months, avid skiers and snowboarders will enjoy all that the nearby Ski Santa Fe has to offer just 16 miles away, as well as the close proximity to the slopes at Taos Ski Valley near neighboring Taos, an hour and a half to the North. December is a magical time to visit Santa Fe, with the smell of pinon smoke in the cool, crisp air and the glow of the farolitos perched upon the adobe homes and walls throughout this historic city. Every time of the year is a great time to visit Santa Fe!

Art gallery openings & travelling museum exhibits abound throughout the year. This delightful historic casita with its lovely gardens and prime location, is just five blocks from the Historic Santa Fe Plaza and only two blocks from the new & dynamic Railyard Arts District, Santa Fe's most significant development in recent years - an eclectic & vibrant area filled with exceptional art, fine dining, entertainment, shopping and recreation, as well as home to the fabulous Santa Fe Farmers' Market -, dozens of Santa Fe's finest restaurants, art galleries, many of the best museums - including the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Palace of the Governors & the IAIA Museum, the historic Lensic Performing Arts Center - offering more than 200 dynamic events in dance, music, film, theater, opera, lectures & spoken word each year - the historic Jean Cocteau Art Cinema, REI, historic cultural & religious sites and specialty shopping are all within a five to ten minute walk of my downtown casita. The renown Canyon Road gallery area is an easy 10-15 minute walk. Only 10 minutes by car to the Santa Fe Opera, as well as the acclaimed Museum of International Folk Art, the Wheelright Museum of the American Indian, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art & the Santa Fe Children's Museum. The Santa Fe Depot, only a two block walk, is the northern-most terminus of the New Mexico Rail Runner Express commuter rail line providing easy access to Albuquerque for a fun day-trip for children and adults alike. Both Trader Joe's and Whole Foods are located less than a 5-minute drive away. A new multi-plex cinema and cafe is under construction only 3 blocks away, with anticipated opening in 2015

Whether you're a first time visitor to Santa Fe or you've been visiting this enchanting city for years, you'll appreciate the close proximity this property provides to everything 'The City Different' has to offer. It doesn't matter whether you come for a week or a month - just come - and experience all that IS Santa Fe!!!

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $500
  • Taxes Not included

Notes:

I typically build in a day and a half "turn-around" time on either end of a guest's stay to provide adequate cleaning time. Depending on arrival/departure times of guests, I "may" have flexibility to add an extra day to the front/rear end of the period you want to book. So please ask, if calendar availability doesn't quite fit your anticipated stay dates.

Rates subject to change prior to booking

Non-refundable Deposit of 50% full rent at time of booking to hold property. Balance plus cleaning fee and damage deposit due 45 days before occupancy. Cancellations less than 45 days before rental forfeit all rental fees. If property is subsequently rented for all/part of reservation time, pro-rated refund will be provided minus $400 fee. PAYMENT BY PERSONAL CHECK OR BANK CASHIERS CHECK ONLY.


Please wait... Travel with confidence

Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I have been vacationing in Santa Fe for over 20 years. I've loved returning to the 'City Different' year after year. Santa Fe's rich culture and heritage, combined with my lovely casita's prime downtown location within walking distance of the finest restaurants, art galleries, museums, and world class entertainment, enticed me to purchase this particular home earlier this year (2014), after looking at homes in and around Santa Fe for a number of years. I decided the downtown location of this property can't be beat. Lovingly taken care of by the home's previous owners, they returned to Santa Fe year after year to vacation & visit. The house has everything I need, including ample space and the amenities to entertain friends when I visit several times a year. I hope you will enjoy my lovely casita as much as I do.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Historical Downtown:
Casa Guadalupe, my charming Craftsman-Style home, is located in an ideal location on De Fouri Street in the historic Guadalupe District. A quiet location with lush private gardens, yet within walking distance of everything Santa Fe has to offer! Just blocks from both the Historic Santa Fe Plaza and the Railyard Arts district.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Convenient to and within walking distance of dozens of Santa Fe's finest restaurants, art galleries, specialty shops, museums, the historic Lensic Performing Arts Center, the vibrant & eclectic Railyard Arts District and the Historic Santa Fe Plaza. Only 10 minutes by car to the Santa Fe Opera and a number of additional outstanding museums. The Santa Fe Ski Basin is only 16 miles away.
