Guestbook comments from the manager

We have had a fantastic stay in your homes -- enjoying Mariposa, Serena and Colores as well.

This has been an incredible family gathering for us -- a place to share and reminise, to hear and tell stories and a place to laugh. My father spent 3 years in Los Alamos (1943-46) so returning is very special for us.

Your homes are comfortable, welcoming and private --a place to relax and connect.

Thank you so much for helping us to come together.

A great place to stay in Santa Fe.

We were very pleased with Casa Tranquila. The location is close to the Plaza. It's quiet and located off the street with parking. Very nice.

Casa Tranquilla is a gem. Private, comfortable, walking distance to most downtown restaurants, great

  • 5 of 5

Nice and secluded yet close to the action! Uptaded and comfortable in historic Santa Fe. It was clean and well maintained and furnished. We had all the comfort we could want during our stay. The front and back porch are a very nice bonus as we could have breakfast on one and evening gathering on the other. The neighborhood is quiet and and yet so close to everything we need. Very pleasant for four people and nicely decorated. We strongly recommend Casa Tranquilla, and will certainly be back!

Loved this place and it worked perfectly for four of us.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for five days and loved it. It's in a very quiet neighborhood, in spite of being close to the Plaza. Loved the two bathrooms, the patio AND the deck, the kitchen and cable TV with Tennis Channel! We liked being able to walk where we wanted to go, including the Plaza, Canyon Road, and many restaurants on the Santa Fe Margarita Trail! There is only one parking space (as we had been told), as the parking lot is shared with another condo. My only negative (and very minor) comment is that the pillows on the beds in the double twin room are very thin. Otherwise, the place was exactly as described and we would stay here again!

Nice visit, but...

  • 4 of 5

I'm torn in two directions with writing this review. The location of this casita was absolutely great. We were able to walk to all of the beautiful attractions and points of interest downtown Santa Fe offers. The size of this place was also great. It was certainly nice to have a full-size kitchen, two accommodating bathrooms, as well as outdoor seating in the front and the back yards. Definitely not a deal-breaker, but some modern updates to the interior decorating (blinds, bed linens, etc.)would be nice. Although a few "creature-comfort" improvements could be made, I would recommend staying at Casa Tranquila. We were definitely sad to leave!

Owner's Response: Dear Lacy, We have taken your suggestions as well as that of other guests and we are pleased to say that we have purchased all new mattresses for the beds in both bedrooms. Additionally we have installed all new window treatments throughout the home. I believe that when you return, you will enjoy Casa Tranquila even more. Thanks so much for staying with us and all the best, Richard
