About the property

Live the Magic of the Land of Enchantment. Discover Casa Margarita – a tranquil Adobe Styled sanctuary for the discriminating guest seeking a true Southwest experience!

Enjoy the fully-furnished 3BR, 2BA, 1,700 sq. ft. home which rests on 2 peaceful acres of sun-drenched high desert in Eldorado, where the mountain views stretch to the horizon. Here you are just 20 minutes (13 miles) from downtown Santa Fe.

Your spacious master bedroom with a luxurious king bed and 32” flat screen TV is appropriately decorated to blend with local culture and tradition. Open the glass French doors and meditate to the restive music of a waterfall cascading into the garden pond. The oversized master bath has a large Jacuzzi tub, shower, Bidet, as well as a walk-in closet.

Unwind outside in your fully-enclosed flagstone patio complete with everything you desire for entertaining groups or for romantic private dinners for two. The Casa is pleasantly apart from the chaotic noise and lights of the city (as well as neighbors), and the bucolic scene is ideal for gazing at the brilliant display of stars above.

The genuine viga ceilings in the living/dining area compliment the cozy glow of a warming hearth and the native atmosphere of the decor. There is a 2nd flat screen TV as well as a modern Bose sound system. Soothing radiant heat emanates from the tile floors. The sofa opens to expose a queen bed for two.

One guest room sleeps two on a queen bed. A third has a trundle (two twins) and also serves as an office with desk and WIFI. A separate bathroom serves guests with an enclosed tub with shower.

Laundry facilities, linens, washer-dryer, cable TV, and WIFI complete the picture. The fully equipped kitchen provides several sets of daily utensils as well as quality dinnerware for special events. Formal dining accommodates 6 persons in full-sized leather chairs. Extra folding chairs are available.

The health conscious guest will discover the water to be refreshingly tasty, as all of it is treated with a state of the art ultra purification system. Guests arrive via the paved driveway which leads to the 2-car garage. Doorways are ramped for disabled access.

Your home away from home resides in the rural residential community of Eldorado where all common amenities are within minutes. Gourmet restaurants, world class spas, wilderness trekking, skiing, and the famous arts and music of Santa Fe are just a brief scenic drive away.

Casa Margarita --- Discover the Difference! The owners vacation here often and return year after year. They hope you visit, stay, rejuvenate, and return again and again, also.

Beautiful House/Great Views/Perfect Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

Casa Margarita is a beautiful house with great mountain views. Our experience there could not have been better. It is a beautiful, comfortable home with lovely furnishings. There is an amazing art collection which is can be seen in every corner of the house. The kitchen is well supplied with everything you could possibly need. We loved the fish pond which can be seen from the master bedroom.

We found Casa Margarita far preferable to staying in Santa Fe. You have easy access to Santa Fe but you don't have to go there for everything you need. Nearby Eldorado has a good grocery store and restaurants. We have gone to Café Fina many times and never been disappointed.

We could not have been happier with our choice of this house. We wished we could have stayed longer, but hope to return soon.

Best Backyard Ever to see the sunsets and stars at night!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Casa Margarita for the month of July and really loved the home!

We had never stayed in the Eldorado area before and we were pleasantly surprised at how close to Santa Fe the neighborhood was and what an easy drive!

The home was beautiful and had one of the best equipped kitchens for a rental, we even hosted a brunch for family and friends during our stay!

The backyard pond was a nice touch, hearing the waterfall at night was so relaxing and the yard was beautifully landscaped.

Tasteful artwork gives the home a Santa Fe feel and we will return sometime in the near future to experience the home during the cool winter months and take advantage of the fireplace!

Wonderful Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (3 teens) plus a small dog had an exceptional stay at Casa Margarita in late June 2017. Everything was as represented on the website; however the property and area are even more beautiful than the photos! We have stayed at vrbo properties in the past, and this one was the cleanest by far--kudos to the cleaning woman! I had worried that all the decorations would give the place a dusty feel--not at all! In fact, the we enjoyed taking in all the displays, almost like at a museum, but with a comfortable at-home feel. The Eldorado area is lovely: the star-filled sky at night, the scent of lavender along the walking paths, the mountains in the distance, the bluebirds, and only 20 minutes to Santa Fe--we miss it already! We even saw a coyote on one morning walk. The guest book was chock full of helpful information and suggestions. Wi-fi worked great as did the everything else. It was in the 100s during our stay, but we never really felt uncomfortable despite no AC. We followed the advice of opening windows in the late afternoon and closing up the house in the late morning. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Restful Oasis- June 2017

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Casa Margarita. It was very peaceful and quiet. We spent more time at the house than we usually do when we travel to a 'homeaway' because it was so restful. The décor inside was so Southwestern. We spent a lot of time outside listening to the birds and watching the koi fish in the huge pond.

The only downside was the property manager, Alan. When he stopped by right after we arrived, he was supposed to blow off the walks and deck and clean the grill. This was not done. He also did not return our calls regarding the master shower. We could get hot water in the sink and tub but NOT the shower. My husband is pretty broad shouldered and didn't enjoy having a shower in the smaller bath.

Owner's Response: Casa Margarita is indeed a magical place to stay. The manager has a different recollection of events. He received one phone call regarding the lack of hot water in the master shower. It is an “on-demand” system and does not come on right away. He explained this to the guest and did not receive further complaints or phone calls. The patio and sidewalks were relatively clean and had been blown off a couple of days prior, so were not blown off again.

Charlie and Janet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Margarita for February and March of 2016 and it was a very quick two months!! We loved the house,its lay out,the back yard and the comfortable feeling it gave us. It offers all the amenities one could ever need. We wanted for nothing. The fish pond was a hit with grand kids who visited and our dogs loved lying on the warm patio stones. We also appreciated the serenity of the area and felt very safe. Walking was a dream and if we had had bicycles, biking would have been as well. These are several reasons why the Eldorado area is for us. The owners have taken great care to decorate in a Southwest style and many of their items are truly outstanding. Oh, the fact that you have available all channels as well as Amazon and other TV sites for movies at no additional expense is an added unexpected amenity. There is nothing but positive comments for this location!! Loved it!
