About the property

Beautifully appointed 2100 square foot luxury residence accommodating 4 people

Palace Gem is a thoughtfully and tastefully remodel of a 1920’s bungalow in the heart of Santa Fe’s Historic Eastside. An easy walk to Canyon Road and the Plaza.

The home opens to the light filled open-concept living/dining/kitchen with hardwood floors throughout. The living room is designed for comfortable entertaining or relaxing, and the dining room features access to an outdoor deck which allows for extended outdoor living and entertaining. The immaculate chef’s kitchen is tastefully appointed with high-end finishes and top-of-the-line Jenn-Air appliances. The master suite features a kiva fireplace, walk-in closet, private outdoor deck access, and a luxurious en-suite bathroom complete with dual sinks, a large soaking tub, and a walk-in shower. The guest bedroom features an en-suite bathroom with a large walk-in shower, and the same level of tasteful finishes found throughout the house. A sweet reading area with built-in bookshelves is located at the entry to the third outdoor deck space. The home has air-conditioning throughout.

The outdoor spaces are landscaped with fruit trees and honeysuckles. There is off-street parking for three cars. The level of taste and detail in this full renovation was enough to earn the 2016 Heritage Preservation Award.

The home is located conveniently to the Plaza in the center of Santa Fe as well as to all the art galleries on Canyon Road. This is an exquisite home for your vacation in Santa Fe.

Truly a gem

  • 5 of 5

We had noticed this sweet little 1920s Craftsman bungalow while walking through this historic neighborhood on a previous visit. Its complete renovation is impressive, especially in the private areas of the house – spacious bedrooms and baths with wonderful details. We stayed three nights and opted to cook in on two of them, largely because the kitchen is so pleasing and complete. And the location is just right – a 10-minute walk to both Canyon Road and to the Plaza. We did notice two possible issues for some travelers: the one kiva fireplace is in the master bedroom, not the living/dining/kitchen area; and pet owners (we brought our old canine friend) should know the yard is fenced but the driveway is open to Palace Avenue, which can be busy at times. Neither of which spoiled our stay in the least. Definitely a place for repeat visits.

Palace Gem.. all the comforts of home and more

  • 5 of 5

this is my second stay at Palace Gem and it continues to exceed my expectations and needs in every way. We had cold temperatures and a foot of snow in a freak storm....the house was totally cozy with its adobe walls and kiva! And walking distance to everything greatly appreciated during the time that there was snow on the roads. The house is totally equipped for cooking in, and every kind of coffee you can imagine, even though the Tea House is a few blocks away....I made my own, haha. A lot of time indoors on this trip and boy was it nice to have a spacious comfortable place with a 60" TV.

This is an immaculate newly renovated luxury home in the heart of Town

  • 5 of 5

Palace Gem was perfect for our stay. The location just far away enough from the bustle but only a five minute walk to the Plaza or Canyon Rd. Plenty of off street parking. The home is perfect in every way: well furnished and equipped for feeling right at home. Chefs kitchen every kind of coffee maker including an expresso machine! Big screen TV cable wifi. Top quality furniture. Two very private bedrooms with private baths. Adobe walls keep it cozy. We used the kiva in the master bedroom...wonderful wood fire! Grilling was a snap on one of three patios. Overall I don't think you can beat this place for a Santa Fe home rental. Location, comfort, and mix of historical property with a total modern renovation

Fabulous house!! It has absolutely everything you need for a perfect stay in Santa Fe...beautifully decorated, very comfortable beds, large rooms, shining bathrooms, completely outfitted kitchen with top of the line appliances, surprise decks in three locations, and more than enough room for guests at the lovely dining table. Location just couldn't be better. Management of the property is the best and positively responsive. Extremely clean, every accommodation you could need if you cook in, spacious - even a separate laundry room. We'll be back to stay here again!!

Palace Gem is a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Palace Gem. The property is beautifully done with comfortable, spacious living and sleeping areas. The location is perfect -- walking distance from the center of Santa Fe and Canyon Road and a short drive to hiking trails. We stayed there with our two young children and everyone found something to love about the house. The kitchen is fully stocked with new appliances - we even made waffles one morning in the waffle maker. They layout would lend itself well to two couples sharing the house - the two bedrooms each have comfortable beds and their own bath. Overall it's a great property that added a high level of comfort to our week in Santa Fe.
