Private Homes, Historical Downtown condo description

Our calendar shows reservations but is mainly maintained on another site, so please CALL, TEXT OR EMAIL for AVAILABILITY and PERSONALIZED QUOTE, THANKS! And be sure you mark VRBO and HomeAway 'Not Junk' in your email program.

In a quiet, safe and historic neighborhood just 2 blocks from the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum and 2/10 mile (3 blocks) from the Santa Fe Plaza, the Sunflower Casita Northwest welcomes you with cleanliness, comfort and tasteful Southwest decor. Everywhere can be seen and appreciated the thoughtfulness, artistic eye and attention put to details that delight guests. This is the perfect place to stay and come-and-go from for your visit to wonderful Santa Fe!

Enter through French doors to discover stunning area rugs, handsome furnishings and soft-toned walls. Whether you arrive to the light-filled daylight interior or evening mood lamplight, your visit gets off to the right start here where everything is just so. Sleepy or just want a little siesta? The master bedroom has a king bed made up with nice linens, a roomy closet and view through French doors to the patio. Now to freshen up? A sparkling bathroom (accessible from the hallway) is ready for a relaxing tub or hot shower and provides the all-necessary large mirror, pedestal sink, hairdryer, plenty of nice towels and cupboard for your personal items. Maybe you plan to tuck away some groceries or fix a drink, coffee, snack or meal? The kitchen is fully equipped with full-size refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, pots and pans, knives and flatware, dishes and mugs and ... yes, lots of wine glasses. The cafe-height dropleaf dining table seats up to 4. A desk and free Wifi or ethernet (cord provided) make it easy to stay connected as needed. But sooner or later, you'll settle into the living room, enjoying the exceptionally fine leather queen pullout couch for cocktails, conversation, reading, movies, or the pleasing winter activity of just staring into dancing flames, enjoying the scent of pinon in the woodburning fireplace or in summer, cooling off stretched out for a siesta with the central A/C.

More amenities include stacked W/D. The two sets of French doors (the main entry and from the bedroom) and large windows all enhance the sense of interior space and free flow to the full-length high-walled bricked patio where seasonal dining or lounging at the tree-shaded table is a pleasure.

Two off-street parking spaces right outside your gate and the amazing downtown setting add to the reasons why guests return.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: Victoria Rogers continues to make reservations for her properties and former properties in the Historic McKenzie Neighborhood, finding usefulness for a lifetime of professional experiences, too many and numerous to mention (see www.victoria-rogers.com)! In April 2011, Sunstone Press published her book about the casita's area, 'Santa Fe's Historic Neighborhood', with information about the history and artwork depicting the architecture. This is a super spot and the enjoyment begins right outside your door!

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Historical Downtown:
                  New owners Dave and JoAnn Carlson (2012) looked all over Santa Fe before settling on purchasing this wonderful casita in the best location for walking to downtown and other favorite destinations. It's exactly what they had been dreaming of for a place to enjoy themselves on frequent trips to New Mexico, and they are delighted to be sharing their new find with you!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Where to begin? Just being here and 'hanging out' is so goooood!!! Then there's walking 5 minutes into town on a mountain-style cool Summer's eve or when winter's magical snowflakes are falling. Life is at its absolute best spontaneously stopping into a cafe for delicious New Mexican cuisine (red OR green chile - both yum-yum-yum!) or coffee or a drink. Returning to snuggle up in the delightful living room in front of the kiva fireplace while fragrant pinon is burning - mmmm. Or to relax on the patio or to listen to the soothing quiet during siesta or at bedtime. And always, not having to get parking when going to a nearby museum, restaurant, bookstore, church, performance or shopping (or the P.O. or Convention Center), all just a hop-and-a-skip away!
