Private Homes, Historical Downtown house description

:: Colorful Guesthomes :: ColorfulSantaFeLLC ::

'CASA LINDE' is just three blocks from the Plaza and five blocks from Canyon Road.
This 2 bedroom, 2 bath adobe home offers tasteful decor, a gracious and convenient kitchen/dining/patio flow, an uncommonly close proximity to the Plaza--just a five minute stroll to the historic heart of Santa Fe-- and 1230 square feet of Mexican and New Mexican furnishings and folk art. The home is air-conditioned. Central to the living room is a hearth flanked by a hand-crafted mesquite entertainment center. Off the adjoining dining room is a quality-equipped separate kitchen. Off the kitchen is a small office with a large desk. The flagstone patio has barbeque, umbrella table and chairs. The spacious yard beyond is ringed with old pine, locust and apple trees and provides ample off-street parking. There is high speed internet access throughout the property and HDTV.

CASA LINDE comfortably accommodates up to four guests in beds. One bedroom provides the option of a king or two twin beds; the second bedroom has a queen bed. There is also a double-sleeper-sofa in the living room which is available with a $100 extra person/sleeper sofa charge.

Casa Linde can be combined with neighboring homes to make a three home compound. This Otero-by-the-Plaza compound can accommodate sixteen guests (see VRBO #8979). In conjunction with our other ColorfulSantaFe homes in the same area, we can accommodate up to 42 guests. With our close-together accommodations, we are a favorite for reunions, multi-family get-togethers, and special celebrations.

YOUR HOST(s):

Proprietor, Sir Dr Russell Betts ('Russ'), has lived and worked most of his professional life in Asia, the South Pacific, and Europe, addressing through non-Governmental agencies issues relating to social, economic, and political change. His partner, Noel Bennett, has lived most of her life in the Southwest. She is an abstract artist and has authored 9 books on Navajo weaving, history, and culture.

Guests love the local and international perspectives Russ and Noel bring to their experience, their extensive knowledge of Santa Fe and northern New Mexico, and their willingness to share:

'Russ, with your distinguished international career and knighting, you are a SIR in the truest sense. Noel, you are ever gracious, sharing, and deeply knowledgeable. What a team. What a place. Book us same time next year.' --KM, California Teacher

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About: Sir Dr. Russell Betts ('Russ') has lived and worked most of his professional life in Asia, the South Pacific, and Europe addressing issues relating to social, economic and political change. Now calling Santa Fe 'home,' Russ brings to Colorful Santa Fe his world-traveler perspective: comfortable, engaging lodgings to enliven cross-cultural worldviews. Noel Bennett has lived most of her life in the Southwest. She is an abstract artist; her paintings grace the lobbies of several Santa Fe banks and are also available for viewing by appointment in the Noel Bennett Gallery. In past years Noel lived with the Navajo for eight years and authored nine books on Navajo weaving, history and culture. Noel brings to Colorful Santa Fe a well-honed sense of color and unique perspectives on native world-views..... Together we welcome the opportunity of hosting you in Colorful Santa Fe!

                  Why Private Homes, Historical Downtown:
                  Years ago we hand-built a now somewhat-celebrated, environmental strawbale home in the Jemez Mountains above Santa Fe. Ten years ago we decided to purchase an in-town pied a'terre--just a small gem-of-a-place in which we could overnight during shopping trips in Santa Fe. Wanting to get the right place in the right location, we engaged in an eight month exhaustive search and ended up purchasing--not one--but two adobe homes in this historic neighborhood just 3 blocks from the Plaza. They became our first guest homes. Now, in addition to living in this same neighborhood, we manage 8 guesthomes in the same residential block. Why were we so seduced by this neighborhood? In short, it is partway up the ONLY knoll close to the Plaza. So from within any of our guesthomes, there is a constant sense of place: Our over-the-roof-top-views are of the historic Santa Fe Cathedral against a backdrop of mountain ranges and inspiring sunsets. AND WITHIN 4-5 WALKING MINUTES WE ARE DOWNTOWN--RIGHT IN THE VERY HEART OF OLD SANTA FE. Here the glories of historic Santa Fe and our Southwest landscape are bundled into one. Our fascinating guests keep coming back and are now friends. We'll never move!
