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.

Good condo and nice location

  • 4 of 5

Nice location, easy walk to Plaza. Condo good; would suggest changing some furniature lay out. The large pieces that were I think for sleeping were in the main room and they made it look crowded. Better to put them somewhere else.

Condo was as advertised and had all that we needed We would stay again. RRC

I only have one comment to make - see below

  • 3 of 5

I think you should twin bed comforters in the room with twin beds. The use of various elements of over-sized blankets and comforters was ineffective and uncomfortable. Also such over-sized bedding creates trip hazards. Otherwise, all was good.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in a perfect location to the plaza, plus good starting point for daily walks. The décor is beautiful, it has all the amenities and the way the two bedrooms are laid out they provide good privacy for each occupant. The front porch is a great place to "hang out" in the morning with a cup of coffee. The area was very quiet. A wonderful experience!

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

This is fast becoming my Santa Fe home away from home. Great location, quiet neighborhood and cozy atmosphere. We enjoyed the fire place on the cold autumn nights and being able to walk to the plaza.

Convenient to all! Loved that we could walk to local attractions.

  • 4 of 5

This home is tucked away down a skinny gravel drive. While very private, the parking situation was problematic. The neighboring casita had two cars which made trying to turn in a tight space and exit extremely difficult.

Quiet, clean, and Charming, with all conveniences

  • 5 of 5

The Casita was as advertised _ quiet, clean, beautiful. And five minutes walk from the Plaza. There was everything we needed. Richard ( the manager) was helpful and attentive to our needs. I would not hesitate to recommend Casa Tranquila.
