This is a unique authentic adobe home located at 117 Quintana Street, Santa Fe 87501 (in the heart of old Santa Fe). The home is approximately 1100 square feet and perfect for a getaway to Santa Fe or for longer term stays while on sabbatical, artist's retreat or special short-term work assignments in Santa Fe or even Los Alamos. It is walking distance to the Plaza, Railyard and shopping. There is no need for a car if your visit only warrants Santa Fe old town living. I suggest you visit the address using 'Maps' for location viewing.

average rating of 4.8333335 based on 42 reviews

We always enjoy Santa Fe but staying in an original adobe made the trip so special!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Carolina exceeded our expectations! It was very clean, had every amenity - even wood for the kiva. It is very cozy and comfortable. It is very close to shopping, Starbucks, and of course the plaza. We highly recommend it if you want an authentic Santa Fe experience.

Delightful casita in downtown Santa Fe!

  • 5 of 5

Great casita on a very quiet street (and we were there on Super Bowl Sunday. The cozy property is beautifully decorated and so comfortable. The kitchen is nicely equipped but hard to cook at home with so many wonderful restaurants nearby.

Ideal location, great ambience

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed six nights and were sad to leave town. The casita is very inviting, perfectly set up for a comfortable accommodation. We enjoyed use of the kitchen and the kiva fireplace. The neighborhood was quiet, and only a 15-minute walk to the heart of the Plaza. I would stay here again given the opportunity and will recommend it to any friends who might be going to Santa Fe.

Christmas in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

Casa Carolina gave us Okies a welcome home in Santa Fe for Christmas. The casa is cozy, warm and comfortable. We wish we had taken advantage of the large dining room table, but there were only 3 of us and we visited family or restaurants for our large meals. Bedrooms and living area were just right for us. We loved Casa Carolina and recommend it to all.

Spacious and Perfectly Appointed

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the location. We parked our car in the driveway and never moved it. The neighborhood was very quiet. The house has an interesting layout which provides space and privacy. The decorating details were impeccable and they introduced us to the Santa Fe vibe. The owner checked with us by text and we knew if we needed anything we could ask for it. The house provided a great experience for us. I would highly recommend it.

Casa Carolina is our NEW FAVORITE when in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

Casa Carolina is the PERFECT place to stay while visiting Santa Fe! It is an authentic adobe house with traditional features, along with new conveniences & stylish updates. This casita is fun, quaint and very tastefully decorated. We especially enjoyed the regional artwork and Native American pieces. So many beautiful treasures!!! We had 3 family members on this trip and used the rollaway bed which is very comfortable and easy to set up. The kitchen has everything we needed, the dining area is spacious and perfect for family and friends, the private patio and courtyard are wonderful and for those with pets the doggie door is a nice bonus! The driveway is small which is typical Santa Fe but we had no problems parking and since Quintana is a dead end street we also had the option of parking on the street. There is zero traffic so no worries about anything happening to our vehicle or problems with other parked cars. The neighbors were friendly and made us feel right at home.

Richard and Leslie are attentive, wonderful hosts & made sure we had everything we needed. We had no requests but it was nice to know they were available.

Overall this was one of the best rentals we have stayed in as it really captures the magic and spirit of Santa Fe! We can't wait to return to Casa Carolina in the near future!!!

Casa Carolina is located at 117 Quintana Street in the center of old Santa Fe. The street is a quiet narrow dead end street with no through traffic. There is ample parking on the street in the front of Casa Carolina as well as parking for one small car in the driveway. In one direction you can walk to a nice coffee spot, Better Day, the grocery co-op and yoga studio - Thrive; and in the other direction is the Plaza and bookstores and restaurants galore. Not to mention a third direction towards the ever-growing railyard district, farmers market and, one of the best restaurant in Santa Fe, Joseph's.
