Property description

*****FIVE STARs! mountain views, 3 blks to Canyon Road, walk to the Plaza, voted the most coveted reservation!

CASA BELLA. Through a narrow pathway atop the gentle train overlooking Santa Fe, Casa Bella Reigns supreme with all-day sun and the twinkly lights of Santa Fe. For a guest in search of the finest sense of Santa Fe living and ambiance, Casa Bella awaits your presence. Endowed with Spanish heritage and blended with the newness of today’s modern kitchens and baths, this home offers an authentic and comfortable lifestyle. Exquisite architectural design emphasizes the warmth of antique doors, captures the subtle light of deep inset windows, and lays focus on hand sculpted fireplaces. An opened door of Casa Bella sets the mood to enjoy the enchanting world of Santa Fe.

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 to you. For your comfort, all homeowner personal belongings are tucked away and out of sight. AQUI accepts personal checks and if you wish to take advantage of this savings, please contact AQUI direct.

FLOOR PLAN. Antique french doors open to reveal a setting to take your breath away. The lovely South American Santos above the fireplace casts her spell for the first few minutes and then the grand sala with dining area fall into place. Very tall doors of French iron work backed with glass open to an intimate library and TV room (queen sleeper sofa) with old New Mexican door leading to the back garden. To the left of the entrance is the kitchen everybody wants to be in. There is a marble bar for guests to observe the chef works of art and the petite breakfast nook behind. East and west views of the mountains are at a glance and fill the rooms with New Mexico sun and blue sky. Past the kitchen is a bedroom with en suite bath and kiva fireplace. The room is filled with sun and views replete with its own patio beyond the antique French doors. At the opposite end of the house is another bedroom with en suite bath, kiva fireplace and open windows for fresh air that captures the vision of sugar plum fairies and sweet dreams. GARDENS. The house is surrounded by an east patio for the morning sun, a south view patio sitting on a rock outcrop and the back garden for al fresco dining. Apx. 1950 square feet.

THE SPLENDID LOCATION surrounded with mountain and city views is apx. 2 blocks from Canyon Road offering any number of world-class galleries, restaurants, night life, and the delightful Tea House. At the confluence of Palace Avenue-Alameda-Canyon Road historic paths lead in any direction to the Plaza.

A REFINED STATE OF MIND is forever present in the surround of Casa Bella with the luxury of freshly pressed FRETTE linens and robes, lofty down quilts, the softness of ECO towels, ETRO bath products that awaken the senses, and PROTECT-A-BED ensuring pristine under-covers on all beds and pillows and premium beds.

WHY CASA BELLA? It is the essence of Santa Fe and as a guest of Aqui Santa Fe, we assure the most authentic and relaxing visit. We value your vacation time and look forward to meeting your every expectation of comfort and service.

TRUTH BE TOLD. 'We stepped through the antique doors and into another world and never looked back for seven days of pure heaven. Aqui Santa Fe met our every need and led us down the golden path to restaurants, museums, personal introductions to galleries, and fun filled day trips. We lived the dream and can't wait to come back. Casa Bella is magical, you must see for yourself.' M.S. Austin, TX

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

Thank you for choosing Casa Bella where peace of mind is among the many amenities. We will look forward to having you as our guests and living up to your every expectation!
