Overview

About the property

House and studio: 2 bedrooms, ca king & king, each with ensuite baths

FIVE STARS*****.......the Santa Fe Railyard District is voted 6th BEST!!!! one-half block from my favorite restaurant, Joseph’s Table and the new VIOLET Film Theater. perfect privacy for guests, air-conditioning in main house and studio.

DOS CASITAS, the casita and studio, form an “L” shape around a delightful petite jardin. Enjoy the cozy bedrooms in the main house and studio with big TVs, a desk, comfy seating for all and al fresco dining on the patio. The house and studio are a great combination of being very open but very private, almost loft-like in the way they live. With a well equipped and efficient kitchen, it is good that the Farmer’s Market is just around the corner so those few meals at home will be totally fresh. Joseph’s Table, a great local hangout, and two more of Santa Fe newest and best restaurants are a half-block in the other direction with the new luxe Violet Film Theater a few blocks away. If you are hear for the Independent Film Festival in the fall, this is definitely the place to stay.

HOTEL-LIKE in its own way, this casita is favored with freshly pressed custom PRATESI linens, fine amenities, a gracious and discreet service, and professional housekeeping. For your comfort, all homeowner personal belongings are tucked away and out of sight.

FLOOR PLAN. Enter through the back garden to the kitchen because it is easiest. It is light and bright with lots of windows and the kitchen is open to the living room with a wood-burning fireplace. From this point back and more secluded is the bedroom, bath and large closet. The main house and studio do not look into each other but rather face the common garden and there is dining for six on the patio. The studio is delightful. Throw open all the doors facing the garden and you just doubled your living space. The amoire hides the TV, a small fridge and some closet space. The new bath is right there and an extra Keurig is ready for coffee in the morning before you greet the world.

LOCATION. Live in style at the newest and coolest location in town, The Railyard District. Some of the most favored galleries have moved to The Railyard from downtown with their incredible contemporary artists. The restaurants are fantastic and always Santa Fe casual, there is dancing and music, the Farmers’ Market is full of great buys and you can ride the train up from Albuquerque and get off 1 country block from DOS CASITAS. Live in the heart of The Railyard District and still be only four country blocks from the Plaza. Don't worry, it is really very quiet! A perfect location is your greatest asset in this Santa Fe Vacation Rental home.

ENJOY THE FINER THINGS IN LIFE. Savor the luxury of soothing freshly pressed custom PRATESI linens, cozy robes, lofty down duvets, soft ECO spa towels, and designer toiletries to awaken the senses.

WHY IS DOS CASITAS YOUR FIRST CHOICE? This is a fun place to stay with every part of town within a short walk……and after all, Santa Fe is very much a walking town. You have the best of the Railyard in restaurants, galleries, brew pub, two movie theaters, and the plaza is 4ish blocks away.

TRUTH BE TOLD. "My husband and I visited Santa Fe along with another couple for 4 nights in July 2015. We stayed at Dos Casitas, which was just perfect for two couples. It is exactly as portrayed on the website. One couple stayed in the main house and the other couple stayed in the casita......this is perfect for 2 couples traveling together. The location is very quiet and convenient to everything. The main house is decorated very cute without being "overly southwest". It is perfect for a couple....lovely bedroom area, living room area and small kitchen with everything you need. There is a courtyard area shared by the house and the casita....perfect for morning coffee and afternoon "happy hour". The beds in both the main house and the casita are extremely comfy with very nice linens along with a down comforter. The feel is very similar to staying at a nice hotel. Nice linens, towels, robes, etc. They have thought of everything...even an extra starched and ironed sheet in case the comforter is too heavy for your liking. The house manager, Caroline, was there to meet us on arrival and was extremely pleasant to work with. I will mention that the two husbands went fly fishing. They have fished quite a bit in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. This was their best fly fishing trip in terms of amount actually caught. They used "High Desert Anglers" and were very pleased. I would definitely stay at Dos Casitas on another visit to Santa Fe" M.& J., Longview, TX

THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING DOS CASITAS. We look forward to ensuring a memorable vacation where peace of mind is among the many amenities. We will look forward to having you as our guests and living up to your every expectation!

Why Caroline Morgan chose Downtown

The Railyard District is totally unique and it is a treat to be able to share this location and Dos Casitas with all of you. It is an old part of town that shares such flavor...and of course wonderful restaurants.

What makes this house unique

The best part is: Joseph's Table and Bouche Bistro are so close, the Railyard District is so alive with the bowling alley and Violet Cinema to be completed by Spring 2015, Cocteau Cinema, the Farmers' Market, the finest contemporary art galleries, variety of restaurants, and...........It is the best! And don't forget! This is the best place to stay for the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival because you are so close to all the theaters.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay was absolutely fabulous, and I will be commenting on VRBO soon. We have stayed in many homes and hotels in our travels to Europe and in the US – we don’t know that we EVER stayed anywhere where we were as comfortable! The kitchen was “over the top” equipped and I’m just sorry we didn’t have the time to cook! We look forward to our next trip to Santa Fe.

Absolutely perfect - exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Both of the casitas were amazing - the furnishings were beautiful and comfortable, bedrooms were so nice and quiet, the kitchen was so well equipped I wish we had planned to cook - and the beautiful garden and large windows made for a wonderful view. We will definitely stay here again and will recommend to our friends!

Owner's Response: AQUI is so fortunate to have such lovely guests..... all AQUI guests are fantastic and it is such a pleasure to meet and greet all of you upon arrival. After a long drive into town, I don't want you as guests to have to pick up a key at some unknown location and then have to discover a strange house. With AQUI, you drive directly to the house where the lights are on and you are welcomed with a gift basket. It is called "Personal Guesting" and it is fun! Caroline Morgan, owner

Owner's Response: After a short welcome and delivery of our Aqui Breakfast Basket to wonderful guests, I never heard another word until they left. That is the description of happy guests. They shopped their hearts out at Indian Market, walked to the Plaza and Railyard to enjoy the festivities with everything living up to the expectations of a "perfect trip".

Two Little Gems

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay we had at Dos Casitas. My wife and I stayed in the main house and my Mom, visiting from overseas, took the "Queen's Residence" (as Caroline calls it). The separation of the two living quarters allowed us to each have our own space whilst never feeling like we were living apart. The property was perfectly equipped for all our needs and was a charming and welcoming place for some much needed R&R. Caroline was a warm and gracious host. Thoroughly recommend!

Owner's Response: To meet my guests upon arrival allows you to go directly to your Santa Fe home without the exercise of trying to find an office to pick up a key and then find your house only to enter the home for lone discovery. It is my special pleasure to greet all of you, know that you are happy with your home and make suggestions for restaurants etc that will ease your entry into Santa Fe. ..........yes, the "Queen's Residence" worked well and everybody was happy. I do love making my guests comfortable upon arrival!

THE SUPERLATIVE RENTAL

  • 5 of 5

I've been blessed to rent homes, condos, and apts. in Canada, Europe, and the United States. Without hesitation, this was THE BEST of all those experiences. Caroline Morgan, the agent for the property, leaves no stone unturned, makes certain everything works, and that the renter is comfortable. She greets you and addresses any problem or question you might have. The convenience of having TWO small homes (thus, Dos Casitas) joined by a lovely European garden offers opportunities for both privacy and companionship. Both casitas are beautifully and tastefully furnished, with exceptional attention to detail - amazing attention. The linens are lovely, and everything you need is provided. The location could not be better and the proximity to Joseph's Pub and Restaurant is a real plus. If you are a walker, you don't need a car. It's great, great, great . . . . no negatives, only praise!

A lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Dos Casitas, and the quality of the AQUI Santa Fe experience. We were enchanted from the moment we pulled into to gravel drive, and walked through the back gate, into the beautiful back garden.

Our family enjoyed the comfort and the functionality of the property. The kitchen is perfectly equipped with the best quality appliances and cooking supplies, and we found the space to be perfectly curated for all of our needs...cooking, dining, resting, talking with each other, working a little bit, sleeping well. We were comfortable in the main building, and our teenagers loved the independence and comfort of having their own back apartment, with it's own entrance and amenities.

We also loved the easy access to skiing (and found the skiing at Santa Fe to be wonderful), and just as much we loved coming home at night to Dos Casitas, whether for dinner at home, or for an easy walk into the plaza. On our last night, we happened on live jazz and tapas at El Meson. A night to remember! Charmed from start to finish, we look forward to returning to the lovely Dos Casitas.

Owner's Response: It is always fun to hear of guests' explorations and adventures so I can pass on the good word on. The casita and studio are the perfect setup for privacy with the two being just close enough and each with their own nice conveniences. The best part is that they loved the DOS so much they are returning in October. It is always good news when guests want to return!
