About Greg Gibson

My wife and I moved to Santa Fe from Phoenix, AZ to escape the heat and hubbub of a big city. I grew up in Albuquerque, so it's a bit of a homecoming for me.

Greg Gibson purchased this guest house in 2012

Why Greg Gibson chose Santa Fe

We love the dry climate and 360 days of sunshine, not to mention the ability to mountain bike, snowboard, fish or enjoy the local wineries all within a 30 minute drive. This particular area of Santa Fe is perfect for us because of it's proximity to great trail systems and easy access to downtown. It's also quiet and highlights the natural beauty of the area.

What makes this guest house unique

We fell in love with this house because of the great natural light and landscape. The interior has just the right amount of southwest style with modern amenities for a touch of contemporary living.

"A" as in Awesome

  • 5 of 5

This was my first HomeAway rental and it's going to be hard to beat. A beautiful, well-maintained guest house in a peaceful part of Santa Fe. It was well stocked with everything you need to feel like you're in your own home. The neighborhood is extremely safe and full of friendly people who are very welcoming. I recommend this place highly, and I hope to be back here next year.

The Santa Fe casita of your dreams

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 3 months while looking for a home of our own. How lucky we were! Greg and Tina are welcoming, friendly, and so helpful--but never in your way. The guesthouse itself is quiet, comfortable, cozy and well equipped--including the kitchen! The two of us, and our two dogs, had everything we needed during our stay. It's well located, too: a short drive from downtown (or anywhere in the city). And, there are miles of trails to hike or run on just out your front gate with lovely views everywhere you look! If you're seeking a guesthouse in Santa Fe, just stay here!

Couldn't have been better

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 months while working a short term contract. Greg and Tina we're welcoming from day one and happy to help and give helpful tips about the area. Many times went out of their way to be hospitable and helpful! The guest house is cozy warm and full of character. We only wished we could have stayed longer, and hope one day in the future if we get to return to be able to stay here again!

Terrific place, great landlord

  • 5 of 5

I am in the middle of a stay in this lovely, quiet, extremely well appointed casita. It is in a very pleasant neighborhood minutes from everything Santa Fe has to offer -- my favorite pastime here is hiking, and there are trails very close by for hiking and mountain biking. But literally everything else you could want or need is close.

Greg and Tina are very nice, and Greg is instantly responsive to questions and to addressing anything you need. You could not ask for a better landlord.

I particularly love the courtyard, surrounded by a coyote fence, where my cat can safely enjoy the sunshine. The place had him at hello.

You will be very comfortable and happy here.

Lovely Casita

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 months at this lovely casita. We needed a place to stay in-between residences and felt very fortunate to have found this place. It was super clean, nicely furnished and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The location is great! - in a quiet and secluded neighborhood, but very convenient to Santa Fe's attractions, shopping and groceries.

The owners live next door and were wonderful hosts - always gracious and attentive to making our stay the most pleasant. I highly recommend this lovely casita.

Charming Casita

  • 5 of 5

I spent two very comfortable months in this casita when I first moved to Santa Fe and was looking for a home to buy. I could not have been luckier to find this place. The casita itself is spotlessly clean and very well appointed. Its location is excellent--just a few minutes to the Plaza and Santa Fe's other attractions and in a very quiet neighborhood. The owners live in an adjacent home and are super friendly and clearly committed to making each guest's stay an excellent experience. I highly recommend this property.

Groceries and shopping are only 5 minutes away. Santa Fe is a great location for exploring Northern New Mexico, including: Pueblo Indian Dances, Flea Market, Farmers Market, Art Fairs, Art Galleries, Cooking Schools and the SF Opera. Other attractions that are very close by include wineries, micro-breweries, world-class dining and shopping.
