About the Property

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Romantic, exquisite and only two blocks from Santa Fe Plaza (including Indian Market), 1/2 block from the Santa Fe Convention Center and one block north of the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum! Tucked away in an historic downtown Santa Fe neighborhood is McKenzie House. Relax and enjoy Santa Fe at its finest. Just steps away from the Plaza and major attractions including Spanish Market, Indian Market and other world-class events, you can treat yourself in downtown Santa Fe. We are just 1/2 block from the new convention center, host to many major events and various conventions and meetings. The world famous Santa Fe Opera is easy access just 10 minute drive away. Ski Santa Fe is a short drive (or you can shuttle ) up the mountain and we have snow!

This very special, newly remodeled and private guest house is located in the heart of the historic and quiet McKenzie Street neighborhood. We are the closest residential home north of the Plaza! Better than a hotel and more space than a b and b, you have your own fully equipped 'casita' (little house) and central location to enjoy the many sights and activities of Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico.


Our comfortable and luxuriously relaxing cottage is freestanding and separate from our main home, both sanctioned historically significant structures by the City of Santa Fe. Our main home was built circa 1915, the casita was the original carriage house. McKenzie House is an intimate (approx. 350 sq. ft.) accomodation with every attention to detail.

Lovingly redesigned to include both old world charms and contemporary amenities, including a jacuzzi hottub, flat-screen tv/dvd, full kitchen, washer/dryer, and kiva fireplace, even high speed wireless internet! Past guests have described our casita as 'peaceful', 'relaxing' and 'extremely convenient'. Many guests have commented, 'you have thought of everything!' (See more guest comments on the link below.)

Experience the excitement and charm of Santa Fe in the comforts of your own private neighborhood. Dine at your leisure in your contemporary kitchen or the numerous world class restaurants within easy walking distance, relax by the kiva fireplace or in your private outdoor hot tub and patio, and stroll to the many sights and adventures of the Santa Fe Plaza.

Take a short drive up the mountain to the Santa Fe ski area and magnificent hiking. Private parking, locking front gate and a beautiful southwestern garden are yours! So come, stay and relax.

We have equipped our casita with all the amenities that will make your stay comfortable and like home: a romantic kiva fireplace, adjustable ceiling fan for a cool breeze, big fluffy towels for your hot tub and shower, and specialty soaps and shampoos to pamper you. Comfortable bathrobes and a hairdryer are furnished so you can leave yours at home. Queen bedding is the most comfortable Sealy Posturepedic on an Asian inspired Sachi platform.

Our casita includes a new 32' flat panel screen with DVD for movies (many provided), as well as high speed wireless internet access.

We love Santa Fe and its rich culture, and you will be able to see this not only in the beautiful southwestern art and handicrafts with which we decorate our casita but also in your private garden and patio.

Our casita comes complete with all amenities including:

- your own private jacuzzi hot tub on a beautiful and private patio
- hearty and healthy continental breakfast items in your kitchen
- spa designed bath with walk in glass shower and plush towels
- bath products and hair dryer
- full kitchen including microwave, dishwasher, disposal, granite counter tops, professional range
- queen-size bed with organic linens, down comforter and pillows
- gas kiva fireplace in the living/sleeping area
- washer/dryer combination in bath
- 32' wall mount flat panel screen with built-in dvd; basic cable; some dvds provided

Ideal for a single or couple (two is our maximum, sorry, no children or pets), this casita offers European comforts in a modern Santa Fe style. You are exactly one block north of the famed Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, one block west of the Community Convention Center and two blocks from the Santa Fe Plaza and the Lensic Theater Complex. Please note: This is a NO SMOKING property.

Upon check-in your casita includes a bountiful breakfast basket with fresh ground coffee, an assortment of teas, fresh-baked muffins, fruit, museli/granola and fresh squeezed orange juice. A written detailed guide will await you providing activities and suggestions for your stay, including fine restaurants within easy walking distance, and activities in town and surrounding communities.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Cynthia has lived in northern New Mexico for over 20 years and is a museum professional who specializes in traveling exhibitions. She is also active in the Santa Fe arts community, past Chair of the Santa Fe Arts Commission and a member of the Art in Public Places Committee. In her 'spare time' she enjoys traveling and gleaning more ideas for McKenzie House.She also plays tennis whenever she can!

Why the Owner Chose Santa Fe, NM, USA:
When Cynthia was looking to purchase a home in Santa Fe, her main objective was to buy a residence in downtown Santa Fe, and with a guesthouse that could be converted to a vacation rental. The downtown area of the city is uniquely special and offers so many possibilitites for visitors. In the fourteen years she has owned the property, she has remnodeled both the main house and the guesthouse with comfort and privacy in mind, and including a contemporary flair.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
McKenzie House is located smack-dab in the middle of the city, in the historic Staab Street neighborhood. The famed Georgia O'Keeffe Museum is one block to the south; the Convention Center 1/2 block to the east. Endless shopping, restaurants and cultural sites are literally outside the door, so visitors to McKenzie House can park the car in their private driveway and walk to all the events and asssets of the downtown area, including Indian Market.Attending the Santa Fe Opera? It is just 10 minutes away and just to our north. The casita itself is private and extremely comfortable, including an outside hottub with a private deck, so after those long, enjoyable days in our the city, guests can retreat to their own freestanding, private casita and relax. What could be better!
