About the property

New 1 Br, 1 Ba 1100 Sf Contemporary Santa Fe Styled Home With Incredible Views.

Casa Miguel is a recently completed custom built home located in the desirable Historic Eastside of Santa Fe. The house sits on a hill providing some of the very best views that Santa Fe has to offer of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Sun and Moon Mountains and off to the west for ultimate sunsets. It is only a 10 minute walk to the Plaza and is a ¼ mile to the famed Arts & Crafts of Canyon Road. AC if its hot, plenty of fresh air if its not.

Casa Miguel is filled with custom made furniture (built by the owner) and displays original oil paintings on its diamond finished plaster walls that exceed 11’ in height. This beautifully appointed one private bedroom, one luxury bath home is 1100 square feet with excellent natural light throughout the day. The floor plan is open concept allowing for a gracious flow and easy living. The kitchen is a cook’s delight with high-end appliances, thoughtfully designed cabinetry, and granite counter tops throughout.

From the over-sized French doors you can step out onto the charming flagstone patio. There is a rose garden and the yard is enclosed by lilac bushes that surround the perimeter. This is a lovely spot to watch the sun rise or set, or simply take in the clean mountain air and views.

The owners, Michael Schriber and Christina Alfieri live next door and can be as helpful as you like in suggesting day trips and things to see and do in Santa Fe. They know the area exceptionally well, have a great love for the outdoors, especially mountain biking, and also own and operate a boutique travel business sending guests to Africa. With this combined knowledge and expertise Mike and Christina can add an unparalleled personal touch to your stay.

We invite you to come and visit Santa Fe, the only city in the world where there more than 200 world–class art galleries located within two square miles, more than a dozen museums (ranked 3rd in the nation), a dynamic performing arts scene and award-winning cuisine, almost all within walking distance from Casa Miguel. Located at the base of the majestic Sangre de Cristo Mountains beneath brilliant blue skies, Santa Fe is a year-round destination.

Beautiful Home - Attention to Every Detail

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay in this beautifully modern home in Santa Fe. The unit was well-equipped with everything we needed including a well-stocked kitchen, super-comfortable living space and a spacious bathroom (the big tub was great for soaking!).

A lot of thought and creativity went into the layout and decorating of the unit to a level we don't usually see in a rental.

For early risers, the sunrise from the sofa or bedroom is to die for.

We also appreciated the 240V 40A NEMA 14-50 plug to charge our Tesla electric car! It's right by the front door: just back in, plug in, and you will have a full charge in the morning, ready for another day of Santa Fe adventures!

Peaceful setting, lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a couple while seeing the sites of Santa Fe and beyond.

Beautiful modern, clean home with artistic touches.

So much to see and'll need at least a week or 2.

We enjoyed a blues concert at the Santa Fe Opera House, great restaurants and museums, Taos, Taos Pueblo, Los Alamos, Bandelier National Monument, Georgia O'keefe's house and Ghost Ranch, etc, etc!

Thanks, Christina, for your hospitality!

Spacious rental in great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent vacation rental. In our many prior visits to Santa Fe, we typically resorted to renting two-bedroom places to get a feeling of spaciousness and to ensure we have a good outdoor space. This one-bedroom rental made that unnecessary. It was very spacious, comfortable, and well-equipped. The location is great, close enough to walk to the plaza, Canyon Road, etc., and the views are very nice. We would definitely stay here again.

Magnificant Home ans Setting

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about the magnificent home. The setting is just breath taking. Beautiful snow capped mountains flu the panorama. The home itself comes with almost every conceivable amenity. Full direct TV service, carefree fast internet service are just a few. The kitchen has top of the line appliances. Being in Santa Fe is a shoppers dream. The Southwest American Indian influence abounds. A must for any traveler is shopping around the square. Restaurants abound and the problem really is one of where to eat. They all are excellent. While there don't forget to try some of unique Margaritas. I preferred the top shelf made with Cointreau, but the variety of mixes are endless.

Getting back to the lodging, the owner goes out of her way to protect your privacy. I found Christina to be very helpful and when she was away we were in the good hands of her assistant Maria. No questing unanswered.

I would highly recommend this property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We di go to Sazon and its our new favorite. Thanks for referring it to us. We hope to rent from you again.

Best regards,
