Casita Artista-

Relax in a delightful Santa Fe casita; put your feet up, make yourself at home. Recently remodeled in true Santa Fe style, the one bedroom, one bath unit has an artist’s sense of style and color. Original artwork is present throughout the casita (Denver artist Patricia Zilinski is featured).

Enjoy your first cup of coffee for the day on your private deck while viewing the mystical Sangre de Christo Mountains. The local birds will be your serenade.

Explore Santa Fe…the Plaza is just blocks away and Canyon Road is so reachable on foot. The Casita is located just off Artist Road, making Santa Fe ski area and 10,000 Waves so close. Santa Fe Opera is easy to get to…finish your day with World Class entertainment in the Summer. Or endulge with your favorite cocktail on the Casita deck, before a fabulous dinner in town.

Too cold to sit outside? A toasty fire in the Pueblo-style fireplace with a cup of tea or glass of wine will warm you up!

Off street parking next to the coyote fenced garden makes arrival easy. Entry is into a large fully stocked kitchen and breakfast area. Red brick floor and a working wood fireplace add to the ambiance; a high ceiling and skylight brighten the kitchen area.

The living room has tile floors, a kiva fireplace and vigas, which all add to the Santa Fe atmosphere. The couch is also a queen size sofa bed available for additional guests. A leather chair with footstool makes for a comfortable place to enjoy an enticing fire in the kiva fireplace.

Just off of the living room is a large bathroom with a shower-tub, heat lamps and expansive counter. A washer/dryer in located in the bathroom. The master bedroom has hardwood floors with a queen size wrought iron bed.

For the price, you will not find a better value for this great of a location. Also make sure that your short term rental is legal and has a permit from the City of Santa Fe. We have a permit.

Don't stay at a stuffy hotel, enjoy our cozy casita!!!

About The Owner

After attending graduate school at the University of New Mexico, both of us fell in love with the Southwest: the landscape, the people and the combination of three different cultures: Hispanic, Indian and Anglo. Santa Fe is in many ways the cultural hub of New Mexico if not the western US. Being one of the oldest cities in North America, it has a long and intriguing history. Because of its history and diversity, Santa Fe has attracted people who love the beauty of the high desert along with the freedom and creativity of the West. We both hope that you enjoy your stay at our condo and your time in Santa Fe.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1987

Why The Owner chose North Hills

We bought this unit in 1987 and had it as a long term rental for many years. However since we wanted to have a place to stay when we visit Santa Fe, we converted it to a short term rental several years ago.

What makes this condo unique

As they say in real estate, Location, Location, Location!!! We are blocks from the Plaza and Canyon Road. To explore downtown, we park the car and walk.

Eleven super days in Santa Fe

  • 4 of 5

Casita was perfect for two people- great location, porch and small yard were delightful, kitchen dinnerware, glasses, etc. well stocked, even had spices and some basics. Lots of info on day trips and restaurants, etc. left by owners. Wonders, artwork interesting and tasteful.

Several suggestions - bedroom window crank broken and needs replacing. Some electrical outlets worn out and would not hold a plug, and new smart tv's are quite inexpensive these days - we would have watched some news, maybe a movie, etc.

Owner's Response: We are glad that Penny B enjoyed the casita and Santa Fe. We were aware of the broken window crank in the bedroom (we left a note on the window crank saying that it was not working properly). Since Penny's visit, we have order 3 new windows for the casita. These will be installed before Christmas. Also over Thanksgiving, we purchased and installed a new Smart TV in the living room. Thanks again for staying at the casita!!! Bob

A hidden jewel in a natural oasis

  • 5 of 5

There is always some hesitation when you are choosing a place to stay online. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked into this "wabi sabe" place for our vacation stay in Santa Fe - May 2016. The cozy casita immediately invites you into comfort and from there you can sit on the decked back porch viewing the mountains while taking in the zen backyard. Our little dog was so happy with this freedom and also enjoyed all our walks and longer hikes into the many hiking trails in the area. The plaza is within walking distance to absorb the hospitality and art of the Southwest. Our next stay will be longer!

Santa Fe charm and you can walk to the Plaza!

  • 5 of 5

January 2016 was our third stay in six months ... and there is a reason why we keep coming back. It is a charming and beautifully maintained cottage... and cozy, too. Both the owner and property manager are a delight. And, you can take a 6 - 8 minute walk to the plaza .... or relax at home, while enjoying coffee on the porch in your own private garden, in an upscale residential neighborhood.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

I am a travel nurse and stayed at this cute casita during the summer months. The only downside to this unit is that there is no ac. Other then that it is a perfect location. A short drive to the hospital for work and walkable to the plaza and parks in the area. Plus I did like that there was parking off of the street

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at our casita. As you said, it is a great location on the north side of town which make it easy to travel anywhere in Santa Fe. We find that with the dry heat and cool summer nights in Santa Fe, that the ceiling fan in the bedroom and the other fans we have in the casita keep the casita cool, but not ice cold as an AC unit would do but very comfortable. Thanks for staying with us!!
