About marcy Pompei

Steve a general contractor born and reared in Philadelphia & Marcy a retired Budget Officer & School Administrator/Teacher fell in love with Santa Fe over 33 years ago and have called it home ever since. We built our careers here and raised our family at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

marcy Pompei purchased this house in 2005

Why marcy Pompei chose New Mexico

When we purchased this property all that existed was this small rundown adobe Casita. With a year of design work we came up with a plan for a compound that included the construction of a new 2 bedroom 2 bath main house with a major remodel to the existing Casita that you now see above.

What makes this house unique

What makes Casita de Pompei special is the feeling an earthen adobe home give the occupants cozy, safe, quite and secure.

Third year with Marcy and Steve.

  • 5 of 5

Glad to be back in the casita for another month. Fourth year in Santa Fe to get out of the Palm Springs heat and third year with Marcy and Steve, who are wonderful, helpful hosts. We hope to return again next summer. Thank you.

Perfect Spot to Hibernate

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better location nor better landlords than Marcy and Steve. We stayed at their comfortable casita for nearly three and a half months while our new home was being completed. Centrally located to all Santa Fe has to offer, it was also a short walk to restaurants and a brew pub and the Santa Fe trail system. We'll miss our buddy Dylan, the resident kitty.

A Very Pleasant Three Months, Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We needed a comfortable, centrally located place to stay while our home was being completed. Marcy and Steve's casita fit the bill perfectly. Within walking distance to a pub, some restaurants and the walking/biking trail, it is also a short drive to Smith's grocery, Planet Fitness and numerous other necessities in life. Even at rush hour(hah!), you are no more than ten minutes from the plaza or museum hill. We thoroughly enjoyed too the frequent visits from the resident kitty, Dylan. All in all a great start to our Santa Fe residency.

Great casita

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 days over Labor Day. The casita was a perfect home base. It is well located, nicely appointed, very clean and while small in dimension, it lived 'comfy' for the 2 of us. We especially enjoyed the outdoor patio where we sat with a little wine to plan the next day. We also were able to dine out - on the patio. The BBQ grill was a plus too.

The casita is on a side street so there's very little traffic noise. The off-street parking was handy -- right next to the entry gate.

Marcy was very helpful in giving us pointers and was quick to help clear up a little internet snag.

This was our first visit to Santa Fe. There was so much to do -- time flew by. Our favorite hiking excursion was Tent Rocks (a must see!), but Valles Caldera (thanks Marcy for the recommendation) and Pecos Natl Monument were great too. There are miles of city hiking trails on the edge of town. Definitely worth getting trail maps and updated conditions from the visitor center (about 10 minute drive from casita).

The docent led tour at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum and the tour of the NM State Capital were both informative and entertaining.

The casita was a great little home base for us. Easily recommend it.

relaxing private outdoor space for morning coffee or bbq and safe for pets

  • 4 of 5

casa was clean and had everything we needed and the bed was comfortable and had lots of storage for clothes and suit cases and stuff. we did not do any cooking but it looked like the kitchen was stocked well. bathroom was clean and has plenty of towels but its a little small and my husband had problems with the step up into it he kept stubbing his toes. The casa could use another mirror somewhere other than the bathroom to use while the bathroom was occupied. It was fairly hot in the casa it does not have air conditioning but it does have a portable unit that helped some and the bedroom had a nice ceiling fan so it was manageable. The outdoor space was nice for the dog and we enjoyed sitting out there drinking our morning coffee. there was some nice trinket yard lighting outside but none of it worked so that was kind of disappointing. It is close to everywhere we wanted to go so the location was good. cant say we really met the owners other than a few comments through the fence because our dog barked at their cat when it climbed on the fence. If we ever came back to Santa Fe we would stay again!
