Guestbook comments from the owner

I cannot say enough about this studio - elegant, comfortable, practical and well designed. Loved the location - very close to the plaza yet in a quiet residential neighborhood. Tushita was helpful, responsive.?Looked at many accommodations in Santa Fe and would not stay anywhere else!

Beautiful, serene, peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The Studio is strikingly beautiful, immaculate, thoughtfully arranged and appointed, in a lovely quiet area. Definitely one of the nicest places we have stayed. The owner was quickly responsive and very helpful with any questions, and there is a binder in the studio with information needed for how things work, as well as great recommendations for restaurants and things to do. We easily walked to restaurants and trails. We love knowing this is here to come back to!

Comfy and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

A great little studio in the Upper Canyon Road area of Santa Fe. Convenient to everywhere around Santa Fe. The studio was well supplied with everything we needed and was warm (radiant heated floors) during the cold weather we experienced. Nice views and private parking spot on the property. The owner, Tushita, met us upon our arrival and showed us around. She was helpful all throughout the process. We would return!

Clean, beautiful, accomodating.

  • 5 of 5

Just enough off the "beaten path" for a quiet and pleasing experience, but not so much that you can't easily access all that Santa Fe has to offer. Wonderful.
