About Marta Cugusi
For us it wasn’t necessarily the ultra-clean air or picturesque landscape. It wasn’t even the insanely high concentration of art galleries and fine dining establishments. We chose to relocate to Santa Fe for something more intangible. That sensation you get when the sun is sinking behind the Jemez Mountains and the sky turns Orange, Purple and Pink all at the same time and you look out and see the most amazing light and colors. This is when the world changes and you see things differently. You realize that life is precious and there is so much beauty out there. I don’t know if it is Santa Fe that brings this awakening or if it is in all of us but it happened here and so we decided to make this home for awhile and see what other magic we might find. These are some of our favorite things about the house: - the unbeatable LOCATION in the heart of the eastside, historic district of Santa Fe. Casa “Encanto” is located on our favorite street in Santa Fe: a peaceful, quiet dirt road, that gives you the feeling of being out in the countryside, when you are actually close to everything! WE WALK EVERYWHERE! Canyon Road is one block away, the Santa Fe plaza, galleries, restaurants and shops are a short stroll. Our favorite coffee shop and the local grocery store are just around the corner. Bicycle trails, hiking, skiing and outdoors activities are easily accessible too. - the unique and rare peacefulness of the yard and garden. We love having dinner outside by the fountain, surrounded by birds in the lush garden, relaxing after dinner with a drink or a glass of wine, and then having a private hot tub under the stars. - the history within the adobe walls that was built a century ago. The thick walls, kiva fireplaces, authentic vigas, hardwood and flagstone floors makes this home a charming and fascinating place.
Marta Cugusi purchased this House in 2009
Why Marta Cugusi chose Historic Eastside
When we saw this home on this street we knew it was special and everyday that feeling grows. Sometimes you just know right away when you’ve made a good decision. We furnished this adobe home with love and care and that Santa Fe spirit that brought us here. Encanto means Enchanted (I know, a bit cliché, but it is an appropriate word) and we are sure you will feel the same way after spending some time here.

Vrbo Bear Stay review
Heart of Santa Fe experience
This was a lovely home with a beautiful interior setup, comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. It was great for our three teenage girls and two dogs. Easy to walk to the grocery store, Canyon Road, the “square” and parks.
Had the most amazing stay at Casa Encanto, it is an idyllic Santa Fe property within walking distance to Canyon Road and the Plaza. Can’t wait to return!
Great home in central Santa Fe!
We loved the home and the location. Perfect for a family. Easy to access all parts of Santa Fe. Communication was easy and fast. No issues!
The main problem was the infestation of mice. The rooms were so poorly lit. One of the bedrooms had no closet. The patio was dirty and needed leaves and debris removed. Some of the towels were stained and needed to be replaced.
I am sorry that you were disappointed.
I wish you would have let me know about these issues when I was trying to contact you during your stay to know if you were happy and satisfied.
This is the first one star review in about 10 years of renting this beautiful historic home and I take the satisfaction of my customers seriously.
It looks like a few small mice were hanging out up on the roff but they got caught by the exterminators right after you left.
There are 3 light sources in every room and At least two large windows in every room with natural light streaming in.
Two of the rooms features walk in closets and the third bedroom features a large dresser and wall built shelves.
In Autum lots of leaves keep on falling from the trees into both patios. The cleaning lady did sweep these off the day before your arrival But they keep on falling during that season. I would have sent her back if you told me it was bothering you.
As I mention I will be happy to offer you a free night off of your stay to make up to the inconvenience.

We enjoyed our first visit to Santa Fe and the biggest reason was because of the proximity of the home to the downtown Plaza area. We would gladly return.
