About the property

Opera, Indian Market, International Folk Art Market, Spanish Market - all in July and August!

Located in a tree-filled neighborhood close to the Plaza and museums, Casita Alegria is a one-bedroom, one-bath casita. California king-size bed in the bedroom with french doors to a lovely covered patio. The kitchen is fully equipped - a wonderful place to have your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner!

This beautifully and carefully furnished casita is peaceful and private, giving guests the feel of being in the country while no more than a five-minute drive or a 20-minute walk to the Plaza. Lovingly designed and furnished, it has vigas, brick floors, and radiant heat throughout, with skylights in the living room and bath. The living room and bedroom lead to a brick portal facing east - ideal for morning coffee and watching the sunrise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The last day of our wonderful stay has come too quickly. We found a home here for our "sisters' vacation" and new friends in Barbara and Chris. This is a haven, a slice of paradise. Thank you so much.

Our favorite litle hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This charming casita is so comfortable we wish we could stay for months. Everything you need is here for a lovely extended trip. Full kitchen, washer/dryer, and a marvelous king bed. It's in a quieter corner of Santa Fe yet close to many things, including Museum Hill. We don't stay anywhere else. The hosts are kind, friendly people who live next door but always give you peace and privacy.

Absolutely perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

First a disclaimer: my husband and I have lived in Santa Fe for eight years, but needed a place to stay while we were "between homes." We could not have found a better place! The location is ideal: a five minute drive to downtown, yet with a quiet, country feel. The casita is thoughtfully appointed with everything you would need to feel at home. We were not actually on vacation, so we cooked most of our meals in the fully equipped kitchen. The bed is super comfortable and the entire home is light and bright. We stayed for a month and could have stayed longer, that is how comfortable we felt. Barbara is a thoughtful and friendly hostess who is attentive but not intrusive. You would be hard pressed to find a better accommodation in this beautiful city that we are fortunate to call home.

Great Christmas Stay

  • 5 of 5

The casita is tasteful, and I cannot understate how nice the radiant heated floors are in the winter, as is the kiva fireplace. Great location, close to Museum hill and the foothills, and a very short drive or bike ride to the Plaza.

For pet owners, the back patio is enclosed so you can let your dogs out and they would be safe. Barbara and Chris make sure you are taken care of, are available if you need them, but not intrusive at all. Great stay, we'll be back.

Perfect place for us!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two small dogs had an absolutely wonderful stay at this casita. Barb was very gracious and helpful without being intrusive. We arrived in the late evening, and were happy to find that the kitchen was already stocked with everything we would need for coffee and a light bite in the morning, so we didn't have to go to the store. The casita was appointed with everything we needed, and was very clean and tidy. The fenced yard was perfect for our pups, as well as being private and quiet. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

absolutely wonderful casita

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were completely charmed by this truly beautiful casita for our five day stay. Everything was comfortable, the way light, colour, and gorgeous touches played through the rooms lifted our hearts, all appliances worked, everything was spotless, and the silence and lovely spaces to read, cook, visit with friends, or simply rest with a coffee watching the mountains and the birds was completely delightful. This must be one of our very favourite places ever found through VRBO. Outstanding! Truly a jewel. Thank you!

Perfect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently visited Santa Fe for a week and were charmed by this casita from the moment we opened the door. We've rented a number of vacation properties in the past and this is definitely the best yet. Wonderful neighborhood, quiet and peaceful patio and yard, extremely comfortable king size bed, short walk to center of town plus easy freeway access. The gracious owners had coffee, juice, yogurts, chips, salsa and more, all awaiting our arrival. We highly recommend and would love to return.
