Historic Eastside house description

AMISTAD CASITA (Amistad means friendship in Spanish) is a cozy one-bedroom, one-bath casita that is tucked away on a private East Side lane, shared-property.

Open-plan indoor and secluded outdoor living spaces provide a spacious, pleasing atmosphere. At only half a mile from the famous Canyon Road, it is the economical Santa Fe hideaway for those looking to get away and unplug from it all.

The floor plan provides one bedroom, one bathroom, and an open living space, with a fully equipped kitchen at one end including gas stove. The kitchen window frames an up-close view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Brightening up the area is a skylight located over the kitchen and dining area, which seats 4 comfortably.

While the bathroom has shower only (no tub), a queen bed and generous size closet await you in the bedroom.

In the living room you’ll find a new 32” flat screen HDTV, and if the occasion should warrant, the living room sofa makes into a queen sofa bed. A desk/study area is also provided.

Planning to visit in summer? You will be pleased to know that there are ceiling fans in both the bedroom and dining areas, which is usually all you will need to keep you cool throughout a typical Santa Fe summer. For those hottest days, there is a portable air conditioning unit in the dinette.

If nature is your thing, you will devour the views to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains from the secluded patio, surrounded by garden area. It is sure to be a favorite spot for your morning coffee, afternoon Margarita, any meal, or simply relaxing.

Several options are available for those who would like to explore the area on foot:
• The intimate East Side lanes, boasting a combination of historic adobes and new style adobe homes, are just out the front door.
• Famous Canyon Road: It’s only half a mile to the beginning of the galleries and to El Farol, Geronimo’s, and the Tea House.
• The Plaza: From Canyon Road it’s about 1 mile farther to the Plaza. (Don’t worry if you’re not a walker, as it’s less than a 5-minute drive to the Plaza and easy to find parking nearby.)
• Amistad Casita is also located near St. John’s College, just off Camino Cabra. There are a number of hiking trails nearby.

Good news for those looking to “unplug”: there is no telephone line! (If you’re not the “unplugging” type, you’ll be happy to know that cell reception has been no problem in this area.)

Though Amistad Casita does not have laundry facilities, there are a number of laundromats in Santa Fe as well as a laundry service that will pick up your items and return them the same day for a very reasonable rate.

Amenities include off-street parking, Direct TV (HDTV) with many movie channels, WIFI, desk area, fully equipped kitchen, all linens, and outdoor patio.

Amistad Casita is a wonderful economical choice for your Santa Fe stay. It’s perfect for one person or a couple.
