About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

In a quiet, safe and historic neighborhood just 1 block from the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum and 1/5-mile from the Santa Fe Plaza, the luxurious Sunflower Casita Southwest is the ultimate in comfort and contemporary Southwest decor, inside and out. Everywhere can be seen and appreciated quality, the artistic eye of an interior designer, and attention put to details that please guests. It doesn't get any better than this!

Tile floors with soft warm-toned area rugs, roughcut ceiling vigas (beams), shapely diamond-plaster walls, dimmed mood-lighting, and kiva fireplace give the best of local architectural style plus being fresh, clean, bright and comfortable. The master bedroom has a king-size bed in an alcove with exquisite art, lamps, television, closet space, and fine linens. It adjoins a sparkling bathroom (also separately accessible from the hallway) with skylight and stunning tiled walk-in shower with European glass door. The fully equipped kitchen dazzles with the finest stainless Jenn-Air appliances, D/W and black and-gold granite slab countertops with bar chairs. Settle into the inviting living room leather queen pullout couch (now with superior memory foam mattress!) for cocktails, reading, movies on the web-enabled super-large LG flatscreen TV with external speakers, or staring into the dancing flames in the woodburning fireplace.

More amenities include:

- stacked W/D

- Central A/C

- French doors for main entry and from master to patio

- long walled furnished private bricked patio with attractive touches

- tree-shaded summer patio table set and versatile sitting areas

Why Judy Holly chose Downtown

This historic neighborhood has a lot of charm and McKenzie Street is exceptionally so. Everyone wants to be close in walking distance from the Plaza, and the location of this casita, including great private outdoor space and offstreet parking (a no-street-parking block!), is ideal ... just 3 blocks and you're there! So, while the property has privacy and quiet, it also has convenience and proximity in every direction to all the amazing Santa Fe destination spots.

What makes this condo unique

Having privacy and peace-and-quiet while also being able to walk to fantastic restaurants or shopping, galleries and museums makes staying at this property very relaxing. We also like walking in this interesting historic neighborhood, which was featured in the book 'Santa Fe's Historic McKenzie Neighborhood' published in April by Sunstone Press.

Lovely accommodation

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sunflower SW Casita. The unit is very clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, and in a perfect location close to the downtown area but far enough to be quiet. I was really pleased to find a hair dryer with a diffuser! Management was very responsive. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the washer had a broken handle, making in unusable. However, management sent someone over right away even though it was Sunday, and when it was clear it would not be a quick fix, we were able to use the neighboring unit's washer.

Why stay in a hotel when you can stay in a casita?

  • 5 of 5

We were in Santa Fe for business and have always enjoyed accommodations other than a typical hotel room. This property was exceptional. Great location, designed and decorated to perfection and spotless. Thank you for sharing your lovely property with us and if we ever have the opportunity to return to Santa Fe for business or pleasure we will definitely choose your casita.

A beautiful Southwest home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This casita is beautiful and like a a custom home. The Southwest decor was amazing. Everything we needed was available. The patio outside was very comfortable and quiet. We loved the location of the casita, being only 2 blocks from the main plaza.

The Tuesday Farmers market was fantastic. That gave us our snacks and lunches. Our favorite place to eat was The Shed. Delicious local food.

We also enjoyed La Fonda hotel for food and entertainment.

The Georgia O'Keeffe museum prepared us for the tour of her northern home in Abiquci.

We would come back to this place again and highly recommend it.

Clean, cozy, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two dogs, and I stayed here for forty-two nights and loved being able to walk to nearby museums, restaurants, galleries, and the wonderful plaza. We used the kiva fireplace often, the décor and furniture are warm and welcoming, when a few repairs on appliances were needed, the staff was excellent and prompt in getting them fixed. Everyone involved was so helpful and gave us great suggestions which all made for a truly fantastic visit to Santa Fe and we would highly recommend this casita to anyone with or without dogs! Excellent! We already miss Santa Fe and this casita! Carol and Peter

It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Santa Fe for a long weekend in mid October. The casita was perfect for us. We had everything we needed and more. Great location to walk anywhere. We walked to the Farmer's market on Saturday morning and it was awesome. We were able to have lazy mornings on the private patio then off on foot about town. We will definitely stay there again when back in town. Could not have been better!
