We are a retired couple enjoying the artistic atomosphere, superb weather, mountain air, hiking, biking and world class restaurants in incredibly beautiful surroundings.
Nancy Alexander purchased this house in 2010
The Santa Fe weather, outdoor living, the majestic mountains, the beautiful sky, artistic atmosphere and excellent restaurants are all part of our choice of location.
We enjoy the views, the portals and the hiking trails. We have the unique combination of a feeling of country living combined with close access to the city amenities.
We LOVED our stay here. Your casita is a gem and we enjoyed it very much. We will certainly be back to Santa Fe and if I had a clue about when that would be I'd be booking with you now.
We spent a snowy 3/12 months in Santa Fe (thanks to El Nino), but the casita was always warm and cozy...thanks to radiant floor heat and double adobe walls. It is a pleasant space! The neighborhood is authentic Santa Fe, and very convenient to city center, museum hill, Canyon Road....quiet too. The kitchen is large and sunny, and the washer/dryer is very new and large. Nancy is available but respectful of the tenants' privacy. Her dogs are most welcoming and fun to have around.
Experience the real feeling of Southwestern Adobe living in this spacious, beautifully appointed casita within walking distance of Canyon Road art galleries and El Farrol restaurant. This gated compound is private and secure.
We enjoyed leisurely strolls into town for the Fourth of July festivities and Indian Market.
Nancy, the owner/operator of the estate, is on-site. She is friendly, helpful and informative. She is there if you need her, but respects your privacy.
Santa Fe has year round cultural events which are easily accessible from Nancy's casitas. We highly recommend a stay or return stay.
We spent 4 1/2 months living in this lovely casita during the fall/winter of 2014-15. The location was ideal for us. Access to the Dale Ball trail system is at the back gate of the compound, and we hiked the Dorothy Stewart trail almost daily. Canyon Road is a short walk from the front gate, and the Plaza was only half an hour's walk away. We rarely used our car!
The casita is in a compound that consists of the owner's house at the top of the driveway, a duplex vacation rental half-way down, and then this casita, tucked away at the bottom of the driveway. It is very quiet. No road noise at all. All you hear in the morning are the birds. And it has a very private feeling. On warm mornings we sat outside and drank our coffee on the portal in front of the house and felt as though we had the place to ourselves. It was delightful.
Inside, the casita is comfortable and very completely furnished with everything you need for your stay. There are special touches - fossils embedded here and there in the plaster walls, decorative tile in the bathroom, nichos, the fireplace. The decor is in the traditional northern New Mexican style, with all its warmth and charm. The open floor plan makes the casuist feel spacious, and the in-floor heating kept us warm even on the coldest nights. The mattress was very comfortable, the water pressure good for showers, and there was plenty of hot water for soaks in the tub.
We love to cook and used the well laid out and well-equipped kitchen to prepare delightful meals. The big fridge and large pantry cupboard allowed us to store plenty of food supplies. The huge beautiful solid wood dining table accommodated gatherings with our Santa Fe family and friends. The casita has lots of storage space - the walk-in closet in the bedroom is like its own little room! - and so the living spaces stay uncluttered with your personal belongings.
The owner truly wants to make your stay pleasant and comfortable, and is very responsive to guests' requests. Her two friendly dogs don't intrude on guests at all, and are very sweet to greet when you walk into the compound.
This casita offered the best of Santa Fe for us - a pleasant and comfortable interior environment set in a location that offered access to hiking, cultural activities and venues, and coffee shops, bookstores, and restaurants. We couldn't recommend it more highly for your Santa Fe stay.
Our 2nd year at the casita. Loved it. A month just doesn't seem long enough. Had many chats with owners Peter & Nancy. Great people. My husband loves the kitchen, lot of prep space, and a gas stove! Good start for a bike ride down Canyon Road and into the Plaza. The casita is private and quiet. important for a relaxing stay in a busy town like Santa Fe. We have our booking for next year already, and probably will do for many year to come. We have been coming to Santa Fe for over 20 years. We really love this place.............so should you.!!!!
This rental is spacious and modern, conveniently located to both Dale Ball trails and to town (the latter is a longish walk, but doable and easily biked). We liked the combination of newly built but in the traditional Santa Fe style; as well as feeling close in yet having a bit of country! We enjoyed the owner's dogs and especially her great hospitality. She brought fresh apricots, made sure we had easy access to a grill when I mentioned it, and did everything possible to assure a wonderful stay. We'll definitely be back and I hope my good words don't mean there won't be room at the inn!!
My husband and I stayed at the casita last May and I stayed there the previous October. The place is a wonderfully quiet, well appointed, comfortable place. We needed to relax in a place with lots of privacy, close to but not in the middle of town and this was just perfect for us. It has a wonderful kitchen and bathroom and there are lots of details that make it special. Loved the open plan kitchen, dining and living room. Great tile radiant floors. Lots of closet space. We loved being able to walk out the door and go for a hike in the surrounding hills. The owners were very kind and accomodating, wish we had more time to get to know them better. Great place to say in Santa Fe! We'll be back.
It is a short walk to historic Canyon Road (0.5 mi) and a little further to the Plaza (1.7 mi). World class wilderness hiking trails, Dorothy Stewart and Dale Ball, have access just out our back gate.
