House: 2-level, 1 King, 2Twin / king

*****5-STARs! central air-conditioning, great neighborhood, around the corner to Canyon Road, 3/4 mile to the Plaza.

CERRO GORDO CASA. Welcome to a fresh approach in the genre of Santa Fe homes where whimsical touches reflect the warmth and enchantment of the “city different”. Shades of red and animal prints are accented by a personal art collection that catches you eye at every turn. Add a few pieces of Mexican pottery and artifacts to be embraced by a world of texture and color that lifts your spirits. This is the house for family and friends to gather for celebrations, to watch the games on TV and to walk the friendly environs of the neighborhood. If you want to live like a local, this is the house for you. Set back from the street, you have your privacy especially with the patios either side of the living room. Santa Fe is at your fingertips with Canyon Road just around the corner for galleries and some of our best restaurants and a three-quarters mile walk through the historic district takes you are at the Plaza.

HOTEL-LIKE in its own way, each AQUI home is favored with freshly pressed custom PRATESI linens, fine amenities, gracious and discreet service, professional housekeeping and our special AQUI "Breakfast Basket" for you. For your comfort, all homeowner personal belongings are tucked away and out of sight.

FLOOR PLAN. Of newer construction which supports lots of windows, larger rooms, big closets and higher beamed ceilings, this house invites living on your terms. A very gentle side of steps leads to the main entry. Your immediate response is one of happiness as the you view the antique doors. MASTER SUITE. The king bed commands the room with draperies of deep gray velvet and Sombraje covered light squares. The en suite bath is efficient and open with bath, large shower, Asko stack washer/dryer and large walk-in closet and with an additional entrance for powder room use. LIVING AREAS. The lovely open plan allows an easy flow for all to roam from the living room, dining area around to the kitchen to two side patios. With an up-to-date kitchen that is totally equipped, there is room for food storage in the pantry and the dining area invites dining for at least six. Throw open the patio doors and bring the outside in for soft cool breezes and al fresco dining under the cerulean skies or starry nights. LOWER LEVEL. For a complete separation of space, the lower level has twin beds (can be made for king bed), en suite bath, walk-in closet and private entrance.

LOCATION. If you like to walk, and after all Santa Fe is a walking town, this is the perfect location. You will be in good company as you walk down Palace Ave 3/4 mile to the Plaza or just around the corner to the end of Canyon Road for galleries and restaurants. 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 Touch spa towels, ETRO designer toiletries to awaken the senses, PROTECT-A-BED sleep zones, new premium beds and air-conditioning.

WHY IS CERRO GORDO CASA YOUR FIRST CHOICE? The floor plan of this house works so well with the common areas open and welcoming. It is a friendly neighborhood that in invites you to take a walk or a bike ride. The location is just right being around the corner from Canyon Road and three of our best restaurants, Geronimo, El Farol and The Tea House.

TRUTH BE TOLD. “I got high-fives from everybody in the family on the choice of Cerro Gordo Casa. It really felt like home and we all looked forward to trading stories at the end of the day over a glass of wine on either patio. The kitchen was great but we never used it except for coffee in the morning because we ate out every day. There was no end to the restaurant chain…….you must try Joseph’s Table! Oh, and the beds were great. We appreciated being met at the house with the keys and AQUI was a delight to work with from beginning to end………they even answer their phone calls promptly.

AQUI SANTA FE WELCOMES YOU. Drive directly to the house where Caroline will meet you with keys and for a brief tour. At departure she is back again to pick up the keys and bid you a fond farewell.

YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER THE HOMES JUST UP THE HILL FOR MORE FRIENDS AND FAMILY. VRBO #670624 OR #387860 are very close and the perfect complement to Cerro Gordo Casa.

THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING CERRO GORDO CASA. We look forward to ensuring a memorable vacation where peace of mind is among the many amenities.

My best,

Caroline Morgan

Loved the location!

  • 5 of 5

This house deserves big time credit. It was an easy-less- than-- mile walk to the Plaza and just around the corner from the Tea House on Canyon Road which became our regular morning hang out. The house lives really well with a bedroom on the upper level and one on the lower level so there is good privacy. We will be back for sure. Oh. and AQUI is great. The PRATESI sheets were luxurious!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location for any visitor to Santa Fe. You can walk downtown or to Canyon road in minutes. The house is fully equipped and wonderfully maintained. It is a cozy home to come back to after a day of activities. There is a binder that will tell you all you need to know about Santa Fe including the most up to date restaurants and more! We loved it. Caroline is the most attentive concierge!

Owner's Response: There are so many interesting and fun things to do in Santa Fe and over 250 wonderful restaurants so the "Silent Concierge" book gives you some great recommendations to start with. Then, I always love to hear about your new the Bug Museum for kids!

Everything fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house! High end furnishings and accessories, well chosen art, fully equipped kitchen, modern baths, great lighting, 2 outdoor patios, free wifi and best of all, the property manager, Caroline. She could not have been more pleasant, attentive, helpful and fun. We went to several of her restaurant recommendations, and they were wonderful! Be sure to ask her for suggestions. While the house would be a bit of a walk to The Plaza, it is only three blocks to the upper, east end of Canyon Road and The Teahouse restaurant--great for delicious, casual food and desserts! Trust me, you will not be disappointed in Casa Cerro Gordo.

Owner's Response: Do I have the best guests? Yes, I absolutely do and I could not ask for more. These two couples traveled so well together and lived and enjoyed the house fully. Key to some of this great living was the lower walk-out bedroom giving everybody the privacy they needed but brought them altogether in the generous living-dining area. I can still hear them laughing and carrying on...that means they had a good stay!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Cerro Gordo was a perfect fit for our two-generation family of five. We were extremely comfortable and pleased with the "Santa Fe" decor and appointments of the upper floor and the generous bed/bath downstairs with its separate entrance. Cerro Gordo gave us a gathering place upstairs with its large living room/dining room/kitchen

and then separate sleeping accommodations.

Caroline was wonderful to work with in arranging our stay and her personalized attention during our stay was truly impressive. Caroline offered tremendously appreciated and gracious help when my granddaughter took a spill and had to be taken to urgent care (she's fine!).
