About Judy Holly

I'm a pilot for Southwest Airlines, and while I enjoy traveling throughout the world, I fell in love with Santa Fe many years ago. The Sangre de Cristo mountains conveys peace and tranquility, and the unique cuisine is world famous. I adore the opportunity of being a short walk to the plaza and a short drive to so many hiking and other adventures.

Judy Holly purchased this condo in 2017

Quick walking to the beat parts of Santa Fe and staying in a luxury casita made the best getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Sunflower casita was so luxurious and relaxing, we found it hard to leave and to out to dinner. We loved relaxing on the leather sofa while watching the Olympics on a very nice flat screen tv. This casita lives big due to the thoughtful space planning and Santa Fe style decor. The well appointed amenities were very much appreciated. We loved the king size bed. It was so comfortable and the sheets and pillows were high end. We were here during the winter Olympics , but are planning to come back in the summer so we can enjoy the fabulous outdoor space. Being dog friendly, this place ranks at the top of my list as one of the best places to stay. Thanks to Judy for the special touches she added to make our stay memorable. We will be back!

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!
