Santa Fe Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Mi Casita Peaceful Mountain Retreat Or Artist Get-a-way

Get-a-way to this peaceful adobe casita located on 6 acres. Breath the crisp mountain air and see the stirring vistas, without the noise and flood of tourists. The home is set among the foothills, with cactus, wildflowers, pinon and junipers trees, along an arroyo, and is visited by hummingbirds and various wildlife. You have a grand view of four different mountain ranges. With glorious sunrises and sunsets followed by star gazing at night. The home has been lovingly furnished with extensive southwestern touches and Native American art. Skylights throughout the house bring our amazing light inside. Ceiling fans hum invitingly and the Kiva fireplace can create a peaceful, cozy ambiance, for cooler evenings. The house is nicely appointed with the following amenities: Kiva fireplace, vegas, small kitchen, refrigerator, two burner stove, small convection oven, washer and dryer, flat screen TV, DVD player, DVD collection, WiFi, 1 Queen Bed, 1 Full Bed, 1 bathroom with shower only, Spa Robes, Lush Towels, 600 Thread Count Cotten Sheets, 2 patios, ample outside parking, views and trails. Perfect for an artist or writers retreat. The beauty and peacefulness of its surroundings are unmatched and the close proximity to the galleries and restaurants of Santa Fe make its location the best of both worlds.

5 Miles to the famous, Harry's Roadhouse Restaurant, a 15 minute drive to historical downtown Santa Fe and for the fishing enthusiast, Pecos River, is just 15 min. east. A popular area for bike riding enthusiast and close to a local starting point... Check out Spin Doctor's bike shop. Easy access to I-25. A true get-a-way to quiet, beauty and sunsets that will take your breath away.

About julie crow

Hi, my name is Julie Crow and I am an American born in Dallas, TX. I fell in love with Santa Fe when I was a child... and have been coming here ever since. There is a peacefulness and calm that comes from this place. It is as if my soul seeks refuge and is replenished each and every time I am here. It is truly as if time stands still. I am able to give myself more quiet time and cherish my moments with my family, that much more. If you are here alone or with friends or family... I hope you will also find the peace and light here as I have. (Photo) of my sister and myself at The Shed... love the shrimp!!!

Why julie crow chose New Mexico

The first time I saw this property I knew it was where I wanted to be... for quiet and peacefulness. I have five boys and this is my quiet little refuge to get away from it all.

The quiet and breathtaking views stole my heart. Where each and every night God's hand is painting a new spectacular sunset. Sometimes in bold and beautiful colors, others in light pale pallets. Each one more breathtaking than the next. With the Santa Fe year round activities and 320 sunny days a year.

What makes this cottage unique

Mi Casita, is truly a destination. Just step out the front or back door and take a seat. The mornings are so peaceful and the evening sky so beautiful. Take a walk and look for miles at the mountain tops and the piñon trees and smell the Juniper. This traditional adobe where skylights abound to let natural light in, arched doorways, vigas, portals and kiva fireplaces make this home special. The house is full of carefully chosen antique pieces and antique and original art and many architectural interest. Plush bedding, books, TV, Blu Ray player, and everything you would need to be comfortable. This self contained 800 sq. ft. Casita has all the benefits of seclusion and yet it is just minutes away from the historic Plaza, all the downtown cultural amenities, art, art and more art and and all the many fine restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a fantastic time staying at this house. Up a dirt road and tucked away in the mountains it is peaceful and private. Cannot say enough about the view from this house. It is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. A full kitchen with everything you would need to cook a meal if you want to stay in and enjoy the view and the stars. Less than 20 minutes from the middle of Santa Fe and the museums. Its location provides really easy access to the city to eat and have fun. Cannot give a higher recommendation me and my wife really loved the place. Had a great time staying there.

White Christmas at Mi Casita

  • 5 of 5

My mother lives in Santa Fe, but her house cannot accommodate me plus my husband and two kiddos for an entire week; so we rented "Mi Casita" to be in the Santa Fe area for Christmas. It is just right for 2 adults and 2 kids. Very comfortable and cozy! They have included all kinds of games and movies, too. I was happy that the owners sent us very specific driving instructions. It was not hard to find at all.

Perfect Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at mi casita over Labor Day weekend and had a blast. That was our second time staying there and we love the amenities it offers. The cabin is in a beautiful setting, you can smell the sweet pine as soon as you get outside and at night the stars touch the tops of the surrounding mountains. Lots of area to explore literally right outside your door. Inside, the skylights and the decorations set a peaceful and inviting vibe. The beds are very comfy, the movie selection was great, and the kitchen provided us with everything we needed. I also really liked the little touches around the cabin, like the brightly colored dishware, the antique furniture, the little Buddha, the Santa Fe themed blankets, and the lights where you can adjust the brightness. Outside there is a seating area where we enjoyed the morning sunshine and there is a great little patio that was perfect for yoga. Loved this place!

Owner's Response: Dear Kari, Thank you so much for your review. It was great to have you back again. I love collecting all the bright colored dishes… I am sure there will be even more by the time you visit again. Hope to see you soon. Safe Travels, Julie

Lovely Retreat

We enjoyed the scenic views and cozy environment of Mi Casita. The property was abundant with wildlife and was very peaceful. The house is a cozy place to rest after a day of experiencing all the adventures and southwestern cuisine Santa Fe has to offer.

charming and cozy!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The bed was comfortable. The outside area was woodsy and private. The decore was charming. There was no freezer but there was an ice chest. There was a bench to sit upon in the living area which was quite uncomfortable so we really had no comfortable place inside to sit. The road in was a bit rough but that was the seclusion we were hoping for.

Owner's Response: Dear Nancy, It was a pleasure speaking with you. So glad you enjoyed the seclusion and peacefulness. And I am glad you enjoyed your nights of star gazing. Sorry you didn't like the large bench. Looks like it might be moving to the bedroom - so we can put in a couch. I hope your house hunting was successful and you find your dream house in Santa Fe soon. Safe Travels, julie

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We were so glad Mi Casita worked out for you - during your recent college consideration trip. I would start looking at rentals in Canne…. soon you will be going there to see Collin’s latest film. Good Luck - Collin! Safe Travels, Julie
