About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)
As it is, Casa Amarilla's location is only part of its appeal. Set back in a deep garden lot, the house is a quiet retreat. A contributing historic adobe, its thick, rounded walls create a soothing, cool interior in the summer. In winter, radiant heat rises silently from under the brick floors throughout to create a cozy warm ambiance. A living room air conditioner cools the house during warm summer days. Eating al fresco on the shaded portal, you'll enjoy the sound of church bells and call of morning doves carried on the clear air.
The house is arranged so that the bedrooms are separated from the living and dining rooms by a long hall. Night owls won't disturb the slumber of anyone who prefers to turn in early. Throughout the house you'll find creative touches reflecting the whimsical folk art of our area. The living room, with its comfortable leather couches and chairs, is informal and inviting. The tile and tin work throughout the house reflects the style for which Santa Fe is famous.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Here's a list of 10 Santa Fe treasures that locals enjoy. We recommend you check them out. All are within walking distance of Casa Amarilla. Look them up on Google for location and details.
1. Holy Spirit Expresso...on San Francisco Street on your way to the Plaza. A teeny tiny shop serving the best coffee in town.
2. The view of the city at sunset from the Cross of the Martyrs. Climb the stairs to read about NM history on the way up, or drive to the top.
3. A cool libation at La Fonda's Bell Tower bar. Another killer site for sunset viewing. Hang out in La Fonda's lobby for great people watching, too.
4. Walking east or west along the Santa Fe River. You'll find the path just a block from the house.
5. Cathedral Park. A beauty with tall trees and benches on the north side of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi ('the Cathedral').
6. The Plaza Cafe. Sit by the big plate glass windows to watch travelers and locals on the Plaza amble by. Great pie.
7. Collected Works Bookstore on the corner of Galisteo & Water Streets. A great local independent bookstore with couches you can sink into.
8. Doodlet's Shop on the corner of Don Gaspar Ave and Water Street. Unique, inexpensive treasures you've never seen before, guaranteed.
9. The Travel Bug - a travel specialty store for adventurous people like you! You'll find everything you need for exploring the nearby national forests, wilderness areas, hiking trails, walking paths and parks.
10. The Santa Fe Farmer's Market. A riot of savory sights and scents every Tuesday and Saturday mornings during the summer (Saturdays only in winter). Consistently voted among the top ten farmers' markets in the country. In the Railyard.

Why Guadalupe, Santa Fe, NM, USA:
Owner Note: I grew up in New York City and came west in the summers as a child to work on my family's cattle ranch in Northern New Mexico. Many years later, when I had the chance to purchase a home in Santa Fe, it was important to me -- being a city girl at heart -- that I be able to walk my town. A contributing historic home situated in Santa Fe's downtown barrio neighborhood, Casa Amarillo is central to everything. I love being able to explore the sights and sounds of old Santa Fe, get my shopping and errands done, and then return home on foot to the peace and quiet of this traditional adobe casa and its lush garden. It's the best of both worlds.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Thick adobe walls ensure a cool interior in summer months. A living room air conditioner and master bedroom ceiling fan further guarantee your summer comfort. Radiant heat rising through brick floors throughout create a cozy warmth in winter...and you can always enjoy the added ambiance of a fire in the fireplace.
