About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Enjoy the beautiful summer and winter weather in the comfort of Casa Alissa! Relax and enjoy this peaceful and bright two bedroom adobe Casita located in the SOHO of Santa Fe in the Baca Street Art District, centrally located with easy access to all of Santa Fe. Within walking distance of galleries, artist studios, cafe's, parks, and stores in the Baca Street Art District of South Railyard Park. This lovely Casita is in a quiet neighborhood and situated right across the street from the Acequia Rail Trail. Walk or bike a mere 10-15 minutes along the Acequia Rail Trail into the North Railyard Shopping area, Farmers Market, downtown Santa Fe, museums, art galleries, micro-breweries, or to a network of trails throughout Santa Fe and the surrounding areas. Right around the corner from this Casita is Larragoite Park with lots of green space, tennis courts, basketball courts, playgrounds and a dog walk area. Additionally, its close to a fitness center, indoor pool, shopping, entertainment, museums, and much, much, more due to its central location.

Enjoy local Baca Street activities such as glass-blowing lessons at Liquid Light Glass Studio with artist Elodie Holmes. Visit the pottery studio and galleries along Baca Street or grab a bite to eat at Counter Culture Cafe.

Optionally, you can choose to have a local chef come to the Casita and cook you a 'traditional New Mexican meal' while you enjoy margaritas and talk about your day. Local Santa Fe Chef Alma will delight you with home made tortillas, guacamole, enchiladas, and dessert or any meal of your choosing cooked right in the Casita while you relax. Please contact the owner if you are interested in a special dinner prior to booking. Times, dates, and costs are negotiated with the Chef.

Unwind over dinner on the private front porch or relax in the secluded back garden/patio area after a day of sight seeing in Santa Fe. Or just relax and curl up next to the kiva fireplace to enjoy a movie or read a book.

Recharge on the upgraded pillowtop mattresses while you enjoy the view into the private garden through the master bedroom patio entrance. Skylights in the kitchen and other rooms provide light and a feeling of openness throughout the Casita.

About Marcy Albin

I have lived in Santa Fe since 2004. While I have spent 20+ years in other areas of New Mexico, Santa Fe is by far my favorite place in New Mexico due to the rich influences of the local cultures, the artists, and its laid back style! There is always something to do in Santa Fe!

Marcy Albin purchased this house in 2006

Why Marcy Albin chose Baca Street

I bought this house due to its central location and ease of access to all of Santa Fe. Initially I bought it as a place for my children to live in while they worked in Santa Fe however with its easy access to downtown, museums, restaurants, and more we all fell in love with it. I especially like the Baca Street Art District with its easy going atmosphere, outdoor cafes, artist studios and galleries. If you want a taste of the real Santa Fe where the locals hang out, this is it. As Canyon Road and many areas of Santa Fe have gotten more and more expensive, many artists have chosen to move to the Baca Street Art District and set up galleries and studios. Recently Santa Fe developed the Railyard Park with trails, studios, galleries, shops, and green space in the Baca Street Art District, so more and more artists are relocating to this area.

What makes this house unique

While staying at my property, I enjoy strolling down to the galleries for art openings, to the cafes for breakfast, or to the Acequia trail for a walk. Once on the Acequia trail, its an easy 15-20 minute walk or bike into North Railyard Park to the Santa Fe Farmers Market where there is more shopping, more art galleries, and great restaurants. Top that all off with a little music and some brews from the local microbrewery and stroll or bike home!

Additionally, I always take my visiting family down the street to the Liquid Light Glass Studio for a glass-blowing lesson. Everyone always loves it, including the grandchildren!

Cute, and a short drive to the city center

  • 5 of 5

The house was freshly cleaned and just as described. It was a cute front porch that keeps cool and the skylights provide great lighting indoors. The lot is tricky to get out of if there's more than 2 cars, but we had it to ourselves during most of our stay.

This place is perfect for two. We had visitors for three of our seven days and we were still quite comfortable. We would recommend this lovely place and we would definitely come back.

This was a very cute property and well appointed.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property with everything you need. Had morning coffeee on the patio. It is dog friendly so I brought my dogs and the trail was right across the street. We walked every morning. My only challenge was getting out of the parking spot when the other renters were there. They also had the same problem. Not sure what to do. But, that aside I would stay there again and recommend it to others.

We had a delightful time at this property. It is close to lots to do and also relaxing place to stay. Loved the little front patio to sit with a glass a wine and my dog loved the little private backyard and didn't have to be on a leash. Thanks for sharing your place with us.
