About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Beautifully hand-crafted, historic casita is close to the city center, affording an opportunity to see the many attractions of Santa Fe on foot. Down the street from the oldest church in the US, galleries, museums, shopping, CASITA ARBOLITA is an ideal location from which to explore the area. It is also a block away from a unique grocery store which offers many local and imported wines. The seat of New Mexico government is also a block away, making it easy for those attending the legislative sessions. Off-street parking provides safety and ease of transport. Nestled between many specialty stores, shopping becomes a joy. A variety of excellent restaurants are down the street, offering an opportunity to explore Santa Fe's culinary offerings. The famous Canyon Road, home of many galleries is blocks away.

The incredible attention to detail inside the casita will charm you and hopefully meet all your vacationing needs. I'm sure you will enjoy your stay at CASITA ARBOLITA!

About The Owner

A massage therapist for the last 30 years and a nurse for the last two plus years, I work at Espanola Hospital and do bodywork at my own private studio. I came to Santa Fe many years ago for a short visit, and fell in love with the land, the sky, the interesting mix of people. An avid rafter, skier, hiker, I love the close proximity of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains. This, coupled with the diverse artistic offerings make this community a unique place to live.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2007

Why The Owner chose Downtown

My vacation rental is in an ideal location, just blocks from the city center, a wonderful local market, and the artistic center of the city, Canyon Road. My tenants can park off-street and walk to many major restaurants, galleries, and historic landmarks. It is a perfect location for lobbyists and legislators working in the government since the Capital Building is right down the street.

What makes this condo unique

Casita Arbolita is a work of art; hand-crafted details-travertine shower, granite-tile countertops, flagstone and cherry wood floors, mahogany cabinets, Anasazi stone steps, private courtyard with a gas grill. Wi-Fi satellite TV, washer/dryer, off-street parking, a fully equipped kitchen and more. Its location provides an opportunity to visit Santa Fe without needing to drive or be concerned with parking.

A Real Find in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

Although I have been coming to Santa Fe for nearly 40 years, this is the first time I stayed in a private casita. And it was a great experience. The owner was extremely gracious and helpful, and the casita was fantastic! It was decorated beautifully and comfortably. The bed was wonderful, the location fabulous, and just about every amenity you would want is there. And, the price is less than you would pay for a moderate hotel room. Give it a try and you won't be disappointed.

great location, responsive hostess

  • 4 of 5

We spent five days at Casita Arbolita for the 2017 Christmas holiday. The property is perfectly located for that because it's easy walking distance to everything downtown and Canyon Road so you save yourself a lot of automobile hassle. Janice is super-responsible and responsive. Our unit was amply appointed so we lacked nothing. Great stay.

Perfect Spot to enjoy Taos, relax, and experience New Mexico.

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time staying in a casita, and what a great experience that was! The casita is located very close to downtown--walking distance--thus allowing us to enjoy the Santa Fe Plaza everyday during our stay. The casita itself couldn't be better accommodated from a waffle maker and subzero refrigerator to a cd player, two television sets, enough blankets, great shower and a number of other little luxuries. It was difficult packing up when the time came to leave.

C-C-C : Charming, Cozy and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodations. Perfect for a couple. Charming, Cozy and an easy walk to the downtown plaza. Restaurants nearby that are walk-able. Even has a private outdoor sitting area that we used every night. Working fireplace with wood and kindling provided (but too warm for us to light a fire.) All in all a great experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments! We are committed to making sure your stay at Casita Arbolita is comfortable. You will have to return sometime when the fireplace is needed. It is wonderful to go to bed with the sound of a crackling fire. We look forward to your return.
