First Retirement Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Casa Buena Vida was the perfect place to start my 1st vacation of retirement. It is centrallylocated to downtown, freeways, tours, hiking, art and wonderful restaurants. Loved the binder of her personal favorites in and around Santa Fe. Walking trails were an added bonus for walks in early morning and evening. I highly recommend this quiet gem for people looking for a Santa Fe getaway.

Great location and wonderful yard for dogs

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for the entire month of May and really enjoyed our time!

The huge walk in shower in master bedroom was wonderful and the home is very comfortable with a split floor plan if 2 couples are staying there at the same time.

Access to the walking trails right off the backyard and thru the gate was really a plus for walking and especially great if you travel with pets!

The master bed was super comforable and got a thumbs up from my husband who suffers from back issues.

Will plan another stay in the near future and hope that this property is available.

Just Like Home In Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 10 days in late September at Casa Buena Vida and loved every minute of our stay. The home is located in a quite neighborhood, was comfortable and furnished very nicely. We enjoyed the outdoor seating in the backyard and the private hiking trails were great and we took numerous walks late in the day with sunset views of the mountains west of Santa Fe. We are returning in 2016 for a full month.

Santa Fe Excellence

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 1 month at the end of the summer and thoroughly enjoyed the warm decor, quiet neighborhood, and walking trails. The home had all amenities that we expected and more; it was spotless and tastefully decorated. Sue, the manager, was hands on and immediately available to answer questions/provide information. The home was the perfect SF location for someone who wants to be 15 min from the Plaza but still close to shops and restaurants.

Ideal for Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We spent one month in Santa Fe where we have family. We wanted a quiet and comfortable place without paying the outrageous prices of downtown locations. This home was perfect. Very comfortable and well equipped, in a nice part of town, at the beginning of a long nature trail ideal for hikers. One can reach the Plaza area in 5-10 minutes by car. But at the same time it is close to more "normal", that is non-touristic areas, with more opportunities for visits and shopping, and also restaurants. And the price was well below the Santa Fe average, with no compromise in quality. We certainly recommend it.

Casa Buena Vida

  • 5 of 5

Casa Buena Vida was the perfect home-away-from-home for us. Everything we needed was there. Plus the paved walking paths were great for time outdoors. Just a short drive to wonderful restaurants and lots of Santa Fe sights.
