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.

Wonderful property close to the Plaza and downtown.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and another couple stayed 1/12/17 a 1/15/17 in this very comfortable property within walking distance of the heart of Santa Fe (Plaza, galleries, shops, museums, etc) We had a couple little dogs with us and the yard and deck was ideal. Very quiet and all the convienences of home, including washer/dryer. We will recommend this property to friends and family.

Christmas in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to stay in this cosy & comfortable casita. Excellent location to the Plaza, restaurants, etc. Excellent floor heating & kiva. The only thing we missed was a duvet for the cold nights, had to pile on blankets which we got on demand. And the 2-seater sofa is the only really comfortable seating, the armchairs look good but are not very comfortable. However, we would recommend it and hope to come back again.

Girls Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Tranquilla lives up to it's name. We had a wonderful stay! The house is absoluety perfect and you can't beat the location! In a quiet residential neighborhood, just a few block from the Plaza. Richard is a wonderful host. The house had everything we needed for out stay. We had 3 people but with the 2 bedroom/2 bath it can comfortably sleep 4-5 with the sleeper sofa. I highly recommend Casa Tranquilla. It is within walking distance to the Plaza, Canyon Rd, The Railyard and many shops and galleries. Can't wait to book again next year!

Excellent place and location

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this place or the place next door. The location is a short walk to the Plaza and the accomodations are cosy, well furnished and good for two couples or, in our case, a small family. We were even able to easily bake some food using the stove and supplied pots and pans to bring to thanksgiving. We would definitely stay again.
