Description of Home.

The first thing your will notice upon entry from the covered entry portal is that there is a wood burning kiva fireplace and that there is a lot of natural light due to the many skylights throughout the house.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and the second bedroom has a full size bed. The living room has a queen size pull out couch.

Guest Will have access to entire house and all the amenities.

I live in a different home in the compound and can be available to provide assistance such as recommendations to the many hot spots in town or even to accompany and guide.

What I love about this neighborhood the most is the location. Parking can be an issue, especially during the summer, so having off street parking and being within walking distance to the plaza is very nice.

All the neighbors in the compound are all wonderful people who live in Santa Fe because it is such a charming and lovely place to live.

Public bus stops are close by.

If you do not want to rent a car, you can take the train from Albuquerque to Santa Fe. The Santa Fe Depot is 0.2 miles from the house. A 3 minute walk.

I can also arrange to pick you up from the Airport and bring you to the house.

About Mark

I am 41 years old and have been living in Santa Fe since 2013. I have lived in Texas, Colorado, Peru (Cusco), Michigan and now in New Mexico.

For 10 years I was a Mechanical Engineer in the Corporate world for global corporations and now I work to serve people of all ages in a variety of ways in the form of personal service. From providing Elder Care in the Santa Fe community to teaching science to children.

Now I host people here in Santa Fe and also in Peru where I organize and lead trips to the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

As your possible future host: Hello and welcome. I am happy to be of service to you as you enjoy one of my favorite places on Earth: Santa Fe. I am well travelled, relatively new to town and have actively been exploring what this place offers and will gladly share the gems I have found from hiking, to shopping, to meeting places, to day trips and to nightlife.

I live in the same compound as the vacation rental and I deal directly with all guests. From key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between.

Mark purchased this house in 2013

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, walk to the Plaza yet quiet and secluded. The house was very comfortable for a family of four. Well stocked with dishes and utensils. Warm and inviting with a cozy kiva fireplace. We also enjoyed the private patio with bubbling fountain. Mark was helpful and available yet low key and unobtrusive. Overall very good value.

Quintessential Santa Fe retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was comfortable and cozy. Marc was so kind, welcoming and efficient. Location is central to the city and easily a short walk from nearly anything of interest. We will definitely be back!

We LOVED this place!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Isbelita was a complete delight! Our host, Mark was kind, flexible, and a great source of local knowledge. We loved our time here. This home is beautifully decorated with an authentic Santa Fe vibe. It is conveniently located within walking distance to the shops and

restaurants of Old Town. There is plenty of attractive living space both indoors and out. And this location is very quiet. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer! God-willing, we will be back for a return visit. Thanks again!!

Very Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

What an excellent location and lovely place to spend time! - And an easy walk to the Plaza and Railyard. We really enjoyed soaking up the southwest flavor which Casa Isbelita and its surroundings exude. We didn't want to leave. Thanks to Mark, too, who was always available to answer our questions about the Casa and Santa Fe.
