***** FIVE STARs! central air-conditioning, complete renovation, primo location.

CASA SIMPATICA, once a simple adobe home, has seen its share of renovation all within the keeping of its historic story. Newly plastered walls, weather efficient windows, a granite kitchen, and now for the finishing touch…… new bathrooms with a pristine quality finish and toasty heated floors! For a soothing night’s sleep, the beds are the greatest and there are blackout curtains so that early morning sun doesn’t protrude. Casa Simpatica enjoys, a large living room with comfortable seating and flat screen TV that invites afternoon of sports and movies. The totally equipped kitchen includes a host of appliances that any chef would appreciate when serving dinner for six. Welcome your morning with a Keurig-brewed cup of coffee in the garden while viewing the quiet pace of the neighborhood from a sheltered perspective. This prime address in the heart of the historic district holds the key location for easy walking just 2 blocks to the Plaza and 2 blocks the other direction to Canyon Road.

HOTEL-LIKE in its own way, each AQUI home is favored with freshly pressed custom Italian linens, fine amenities, a gracious and discreet service, professional housekeeping and our special AQUI gift basket for you. For your comfort, all homeowner personal belongings are tucked away and out of sight.

FLOOR PLAN. There is an easy flow to the house with bedrooms, each with en suite bath, on the back of the house ensuring a sound night’s sleep and privacy. The kitchen is the center point of the house with access to all rooms including the living and dining rooms overlooking the front garden. The guest bath has a second powder room entrance off the kitchen . Surrounding gardens keep you wrapped in sunshine and enjoying al fresco dining with the gas grill.

LOCATION. Facing Palace Avenue, Casa Simpatica is an easy 2-block walk to either the Plaza or Canyon Road. That means Santa Fe’s world-class galleries and restaurants, shopping and cultural events are all within walking distance.

ENJOY THE FINER THINGS IN LIFE. Savor the luxury of soothing freshly pressed custom FRETTE linens and robes, lofty down duvets, soft ECO Touch spa towels, ETRO designer toiletries to awaken the senses, PROTECT-A-BED sleep zones ensuring pristine under-covers on all beds & pillows, premium beds, a Zeta Core tap water system ensuring soft as rain water, and central air-conditioning.

WHY IS CASA SIMPATICA YOUR FIRST & BEST CHOICE? Our discerning guests look forward to the quiet sophistication of Casa Simpatica. They feel like a local and love being able to walk everywhere. The absolute favorite thing to do is to sit on the portal and watch the neighborhood activity early in the morning. It is fascinating!

TRUTH BE TOLD. “I can only echo the great reviews posted here. Casa Simpatica has an aesthetic of charm, ease, and light. The art is beautiful, playful, and well chosen. The courtyard offers privacy with a sense of space and calm, yet you can walk over to the Plaza or be on Canyon Road in just a couple of minutes. Our family of five, parents from Boston and three adults in their twenties from East Coast, West Coast, and Texas, has been coming to New Mexico for vacation and work at Ghost Ranch since 1992 and love to see our local friends. The house is great for entertaining. We hosted games and lunches and served a casual buffet before heading up to Canyon Road on Christmas Eve. The kitchen is fabulous, stocked with equipment and well designed. Sleeping was excellent, great mattresses. We had one on the sofa bed---he was quite comfortable. We loved the gas fireplace and the warmth during the snowy week. So nice to have a parking space! I will treasure the memory of Casa Simpatica, a place to feel at home, if home were only so uncluttered and situated in the heart of the Land of Enchantment. Caroline is a wonderful host. The basket that greeted us delighted all week. A beautiful poinsettia and orchid arrangement provided a focus for our holiday celebration.
Thanks from our whole family!" D.B., Wellesley, MA

AQUI SANTA FE WELCOMES YOU. Drive directly to the house where Caroline will meet you with keys and for a brief walk-thru. At departure she is back again to pick up the keys and bid a fond farewell.

DO YOU NEED EXTRA SPACE? Casa Perla, VRBO #276381, is a one bedroom casita also available for rent. The two comprise The Palacio Compound where all guests can be comfortable. VRBO #276464.

THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING CASA SIMPATICA. We look forward to ensuring a memorable vacation where peace of mind is among the many amenities.

My best,
Caroline Morgan
