Casita del Sol is the epitome of the charming, authentic casita that everyone looks for when visiting Santa Fe, located within a 10-15 min. (.7 mile) walk of old Santa Fe's picturesque plaza. In the summer, enjoy our walled garden (shared with our other casita) as well as a private bistro table and chairs in the rear of the casita. In the winter, cozy up by your own kiva fireplace. It is very secluded and quiet, featuring authentic hand-painted Mexican tile and coved ceilings with original vigas, furnished with hand-carved Southwestern style furniture. The bedroom features fine linens for a wonderful night's sleep. There is a full-size sleeper sofa in the living room area. The sunny atmosphere is the result of skylights throughout. Tastefully decorated with attractive artwork and hand-woven rugs. Off-street parking available as well as laundry facilities. Upon your arrival, you will find all the ingredients for a continental breakfast! The casita is maintained with care and pride.
Long-Term Owners: My husband and I have owned this property for over twelve years. In that time we have established a number of return guests who come year after year, saying that this is the best accommodations they have ever stayed in while in Santa Fe.
Cooling: A/C: The property does not have air conditioning and it is not necessary. This is the original adobe construction which has been used in New Mexico for centuries. The adobe walls keep the casitas cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The only kind of air conditioning that I could put in these historic buildings would be window units and I refuse to do that as they can be quite noisy and unsightly. We do have fans, as well as a portable air conditioner available for the summer months if people want to use them. In addition, in Santa Fe, the nights are 25-30 degrees cooler than the days, so we do not have warm summer nights. We have guests who return every summer and know that the casitas are very comfortable. I remember a couple from Southern California who stayed with us a few years ago. They were concerned that there was no air conditioning, but they decided to stay anyway. They later told me that they were totally comfortable and were very pleased to have stayed in our property.
Miscellaneous: One week stay minimum. No cleaning fees, no security deposit, no contracts.

About the owner: My husband and I bought this property more than eleven years ago. I love owning the property and knowing the people who come back year after year. We have lived in Santa Fe for over thirteen years and live a little bit outside of the city limits. We have a 16-year-old son, two collies and a cat.
Why the Owner Chose Guadalupe: When I first saw it, I knew it was the one because of the privacy, quiet and peacefulness. Short walk (10-15 minutes) to the plaza, but less expensive than staying on the East side. A few blocks from the new Railyard.
The Unique Benefits at this House: I always put in the makings for a breakfast (cereal, milk, juice, bread, jam, fruit, butter) so people won't have to arrive in the afternoon and then immediately go find a grocery store.
