About the Property
House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)
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 (PLEASE NOTE: driveway/parking is suitable for passenger car (1). We cannot accommodate campers, trailers, moving vans or other over sized vehicles) , 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.

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.
