About the Property

Detached 1 Bedroom casita

Experience the peaceful slow pace of the very convenient South Capitol neighborhood, barely changed in over 50 years. Casita du Soleil is an adobe guest house behind and across the patio from main house on quiet tree-lined street one-half mile south of the Santa Fe Plaza. Relax amid fruit trees, lilacs, roses, herb, and flower gardens. Owner usually in residence to assist in orienting you for your stay. (American francophile - on parle francais.) . Easy on-street parking.

The detached Casita du Soleil consists of living room (futon couch), dining area seating four, bedroom (queen), full kitchen, bath, and Saltillo tiled floors throughout. Furnishings include treasured antiques, original art. Warm in winter (gas), adobe maintains coolness in summer. Dogs allowed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1971

About the owner: I own this one property in Santa Fe which has been my home for decades. I love my street and neighborhood and have happy memories of my children playing ball in the quiet streets. I have seen the fruit trees grow from little slips into mature giants producing cherries, apricots, peaches many years. I retired from teaching French in a local high school - then, since beginning to rent my casita, I have enjoyed meeting people from many countries. My guest book/scrap book is full of their photos, mementos and the stamps of their foreign countries. Tiling the bath, kitchen and floors myself was satisfying. My grand daughter says I'm married to my garden - I do work on it! Rates vary according to number of guests, length of stay, time of year and space occupied. Discounts apply for weekly/monthly visits.

Why the Owner Chose South Capitol, Santa Fe, NM, USA:
I moved here to be near the old center of this historic town and to be near the most excellent elementary school for my children. If you would enjoy walking on a tree-lined street, being surrounded by flowers, garden walls, fruit trees, lilacs, stone walks (no gravel!), you will also enjoy the peace and quiet of this centrally located retreat. It's modest and I have many repeat visitors (10 repeat bookings in 2015).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casita du soleil is six-tenths of a mile from the Plaza - a flat walk on mostly quiet streets. Three tiny blocks to Sage Bakery, 5 tiny blocks to Whole Foods. A few minutes to Railyard District of galleries, restaurants, SF Farmers' Market. Tranquility in the middle of everything.
