About Romi Sloboda Dunahugh

Once upon a time, two artists fell in love, became best friends, combined their resources, married and learned to work together renovating houses into homes. It turns out that they were pretty good at it and Casita Cameo is their collaboration.

Romi is an artist who lives in the historically contributing territorial style adobe house at the front of the property located on Agua Fria Street, part of the historic El Camino Real. When not working in her studio or on renovations, Romi enjoys looking after the organic gardens. Casita Cameo is located in the center of the property, with a private fenced yard and offstreet parking. Chip's joyful hospitality lives on in the details of the casita and the other houses he designed and renovated on the property with Romi.

Romi Sloboda Dunahugh purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Romi Sloboda Dunahugh chose Downtown

After meeting in Florence, living in Paris and in Old City Philadelphia, we loved living in a city where we can walk to museums, gallery openings and to our favorite restaurants.

Our very first visit to Santa Fe was in 2003 and, like many Santa Feans, we fell in love with it right away and dreamed of moving here one day. Two years later, our dreams came true and I hope that you fall in love with Santa Fe during your visit too!

This was our second time staying at Casita Cameo. The unit is perfect for a couple (we also brought our dog this time.) It is wonderfully clean, well appointed and is close enough to walk to the Plaza, the Railyard and places in between. Romi is a gracious host-warm and welcoming. We will not hesitate to stay here again and have recommended it to friends. Stay here-you will not be disappointed.

A lovely and peaceful setting in the center of vibrant and inspiring Santa Fe. After a day of galleries, museums and wonderful restaurants you return to a beautiful and quiet casita that provides you everything you could possibly need and the comforts you long for. We plan to return. Thank you Romi and Chip.
