About the property

Authentic adobe home in the heart of old Santa Fe

Short Term Rental Permit #: 16-00135965

A ten minute walk to the plaza, this quintessential adobe home offers charm of traditional Santa Fe. A fully appliance kitchen, a king sleigh bed in the master with a queen sofa sleeper in the living room and a twin bed in the sun-room, a Lyne Archer dinning table for six and a four top in the kitchen. Sleeps up to five and offers off street covered parking, plenty of enclosed yard space with outside grilling with gas and shade offered by an old apricot tree. Free wifi and cable with televisions in both the living room and bed room. Located on a dead end street traffic noise is unheard of and yet groceries and dinning are just steps away. Enjoy the essence of Santa fe.

Casa Quintana is a beguiling 1400 square foot adobe house on a quiet cul de sac in Santa Fe’s historic San Francisco Street district, an easy walk to the plaza.

The is an outside hot tub that operates year-round that seats 4 people.


Quintana street was named after the Quintana brothers who settled the area in the 1920?s, selling their farmland in the north and coming to “La Villa Royal” or the “Royal City” as Santa Fe was then called, to educate their families.

The house was built in the 1930?s by the oldest son, Juan, in the traditional adobe brick, southwestern style. In 1998, Michael Roybal, second cousin to Juan, bought and renovated the original house. With utmost care, he retained its unique architectural features, keeping its charm and grace, while bringing it up to date with modern living.

Casa Quintana is fully licensed by the City of Santa Fe and abides by all tax laws and city ordinances.

Casa Quintana is located in the historic Guadalupe Street district and is 10 minutes walking to the plaza. It is the quintessential adobe brick home. Built by my mothers relatives in the 1930's. The Quintana's, her maiden name. It is the essence of old Santa Fe. A huge old apricot tree adorns the back yard as many native plantings. A quick 10 minute walk and you're in historic downtown Santa Fe. The Santa Fe river walk is one minute walking and many grocery stores are a stones throw away. Whole Foods, Albertsons, Sunflower, and local Coop with the best organic produce in northern NM.

plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

We are a large family and we fit in this house perfect. It is old but all the appliances and things are new. I loved the charm of the house. It looks just like the pictures. It is located on a dead end street and there are locals around you so they are friendly. If you need help there is someone there immediately. Hot tub was great after skiing. The only thing I would suggest is updating the sofa sleeper and add a love seat for more people in the family room.

A great place for exploring Santa Fe.

We really enjoyed our time at this charming little house. The neighborhood was very nice and quiet, yet within easy walking distance to the plaza. The hot tub was very relaxing. Nice kitchen and dining area. We would definitely stay here again!

Cozy home in great downtown location

  • 5 of 5

This well-appointed home was perfect for our winter get-away. Outside it represents historic architecture of Santa Fe but inside is up-to-date without compromising on the charm of a traditional adobe structure.

We took advantage of the easy walk to downtown and local groceries. Access to major highways is simple, too.

A gas-log fireplace was an added bonus keeping us warm as well as adding to the ambiance.

One of the reasons we chose this location was the hot tub. If that is important for your stay, check with the property manager to insure it is operational.

Good location on a dead end street with off street parking. Fenced yard worked out very well for the dogs. Clean and well stocked. Pictures and description were accurate. Off lead dog park with trails within approximately 1/2 mile.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice Casita. All the amenities . Especially enjoyed the outdoor hot tub which is always at the ready.

Happened to be lovely, warmish fall weather while we were there. Shimmering yellow leaves of the cottonwood trees in side yard added to the ambience.
