About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

SIX NIGHT MINIMUM - Mountain vistas, open landscape, spacious and elegant interior…plus, only a short walk to the town center, The Plaza.

Located just two blocks behind Ft. Marcy Park in a private setting with incredible, unobstructed views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Casa Altamira is just a 15 minute walk to the famed Santa Fe Plaza. From here you are ready to explore “The City Different” with the mingling of Native American, Anglo, and Hispanic cultures. Shopping, galleries, museums, and restaurants abound.

Whether you are two or more, you will enjoy this pleasant and open three-bedroom, two-bath home decorated in popular Southwestern colors of oranges and golds which complement the furniture, art, and architecture.

The living area and two bedrooms are on the main living level. Magnificent views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains can be seen from the living room, dining room, kitchen, and 2nd bedroom. The deck off the living/dining room gives you more unobstructed mountain views. From here you can enjoy the dry and sunny Santa Fe climate while sipping your morning coffee or afternoon Margarita!

The living room has a large flat-screen TV, a wood-burning kiva fireplace and a leather sofa and recliner. It is lined with bookcases full of books for your reading enjoyment. The open floor plan creates a large living space, with the dining room (seats six) adjoining the living room.

Cooking in the fully equipped kitchen with new gas stove will be a delight. You have a mountain view from the kitchen window! There is also a dinette table with easy kitchen access.

There are two bedrooms on this main floor that share a full hall bath. The queen bedroom has its own private patio (also with mountain views) and small TV. The other bedroom has two twin beds.

Up a half flight of stairs is the king master suite, again with mountain views of the Sangre de Cristos, but also having a deck with southern views of the Sandia Mountains, a lovely place to watch the sunsets! This room also has a wood-burning kiva fireplace, a flat screen TV, as well as a large desk set up as an office area. The bath has two sinks and a beautifully tiled shower.

Full size washer/dryer, air conditioning, double garage, and off-street parking are house amenities. Of course, all linens, cable TV, wireless internet are included.

This house is on a generous size lot. It is private. There are no homes situated to look in your windows or see you on the deck….yet, you are just a few minutes’ walk to the energy of the Plaza. DeVargas shopping plaza is also near by. The closeness of Ft. Marcy Park has added benefits. There is a large open area for dog-walking. And the public Community Center has an Olympic size pool, exercise equipment, and classes (yoga, Pilates), all for an extremely reasonable price.

Destino Santa Fe is a cooperative, private group of homeowners and we are proud to represent Casa Altamira.

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a very unique setting that offers a quiet location, beautiful views and yet only an easy 20 minute walk right to the middle of Santa Fe - all at the same time! You can even drive to a lage ski resort in 40 minutes! The house is beautifully decorated and we found the furniture, beds and couches very comfortable. Lots of places to walk and close to shops, parks and resturants. We highly recommend this location!

Holiday Delight

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent Christmas week at Casa Altamira. It was just perfect for everything we did from cooking holiday meals, relaxing by the fire, skiing and sledding on the nearby ski mountain, playing in the park a block away, or enjoying the activities in the Plaza. It even snowed on Christmas Eve. The views out all the windows were breathtaking. Casa Altamira is beautifully designed and decorated and provided plenty of space for grandchildren to play and adults to visit. Everyone left saying this was the best family vacation ever. We look forward to returning.

Serenity Now

  • 5 of 5

Casa Altamira was a delightful place to stay while exploring the 'city different.' We rented for 10 days and hosted a few guests along the way. The condo is spacious, comfortable and well out-fitted. The deck was a delightful place to relax and enjoy the mountain views; we even saw a double rainbow the first day we checked -in. The condo is well-situated, within walking distance of the Plaza and museums, but feels private and quiet in a community off the main roads. The rental transaction was easy and straightforward; we had no issues to be resolved during our stay. We highly recommend this property and will stay here again if our path brings us back to Santa Fe.

New Mexico Winter

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely home to spend a month in the culturally diverse capital of New Mexico. Any issues were quickly resolved and always pleasantly. The walks to the plaza were downhill. The furnishings and artwork were appropriate for the southwest and tasteful. We exchanged a 65 degree morning for a 104" snow base ski adventure in 30 minutes. This was a reasonable decision which we thoroughly enjoyed and have no regrets.

Great place to stay in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We already rented this property twice and were not disappointed. Great location within walking distance from the central plaza, yet quiet and away from it all. We like to go self-catering, and the house has all the amenities we could need. Great terrace with sufficient privacy.

Great house for family stay!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Casa Altamira for 4 nights in June. House is pristine, modern, and feels spacious for a family of 5. Two of the bedrooms have private decks or patios. We chose not to walk to the plaza, but Santa Fe driving and parking are very easy. Sue was great to work with! We would definitely stay here again next time we are in Santa Fe.
