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. At departure she is back again to pick up the keys and bid you a fond farewell.
DO YOU NEED EXTRA SPACE? Casa Perla, VRBO #276381, is a one bedroom with sofa-bed casita also available for rent. The two comprise The Palacio Compound and accommodate ten guests. 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.
