About the property

Easy access 2 BR/2 Bath condo close to SF Plaza with many amenities

This quiet and peaceful condo has a warm, homey, comfortable feel -- and is intended to be your home away from home. It has not been stripped down the basics -- instead, the condo has been left as a home -- with a well-stocked kitchen that includes everything needed to cook and relax as if you were in your own home. Put up your feet after a day out in Santa Fe and relax! You are home!

As a haven from the hustle and bustle, this condo has been lived in for many years by Gene and Dee. We love to travel and have collected interesting pieces from around the world. The folkloric decorations have been left as they were - now providing a fun, bright, cheerful environment that reflects the multi-cultural, eclectic, and artistic nature of Santa Fe.

We have always traveled with our dog, so we decided to leave dog-friendy amenities in the condo, too. We have a dog crate and dog bowls available and ready for your pet. And, your dog will love the outside, coyote-fenced deck attached to the condo. Even better, the Santa Fe dog park -- located within minutes -- is a dog haven, with open trails that run for miles and provide a beautiful view of Santa Fe from the ridge top.

Santa Fe is at the top of most visited vacation spots in the country and is the second largest venue for art galleries in the US. Our delightful condo is located just a little over a mile from the Santa Fe Plaza, the cultural center of Santa Fe. The Plaza, surrounded by world-class museums, wonderful restaurants, great bars, fun boutiques, and exquisite art galleries, is a fairly easy walk. You can also visit the Santa Fe Rail Yard, with it's art galleries, restaurants, pubs, and two movie theaters (one highlights unique, director-created films, and the other includes a bar/restaurant with take-in drinks and food). And, you won't want to miss the world-renowned Canyon Road art galleries with near-by walkable residential neighborhoods that wind down small, tree-covered streets and show off the unusual pueblo-style architecture of Santa Fe.

The list of world-class art museums in Santa Fe is long -- several wonderful museums emphasize Southwest and native Indian culture. If you love museums, don't miss some of Santa Fe's best -- you can visit museums that have astounding range and depth -- the Georgia O'Keefe, International Folk Art, New Mexico History, Indian Arts and Culture, New Mexico Art, Wheelright American Indian, Contemporary Native Arts, and Spanish Colonial Art name a few!

And, the music scene is like no other! If you are interested in opera, the Santa Fe Opera is an experience sought out by people from around the world. Perhaps you might like opening night at the Opera -- with their exquisite tail-gate parties! The music scene is as diverse as can be -- with live music venues throughout town. The Lensic, Santa Fe's performing arts center is an historic building close to the Plaza that offers more than 200 dance, film, music, theater, opera, lectures, and other events throughout the year!

Restaurants galore -- Santa Fe is well-known for fabulous food -- from New Mexican (Nuevo Mexicano), Spanish, French, Italiano, Japanese, American. What are you hungry for? -- Santa Fe will have it! Restaurants that we have tried over the years and liked and are easy drives from our condo include: Upper Crust Pizza, Tecolote Cafe, Cowgirl BBQ, Osteria d'Assisi, Burrito Company, Pink Adobe, Blue Corn Cafe, Il Vicino Wood Oven Pizza, Second Street Brewery, Counter Culture, El Farol, Bumble Bee's Baja Grill, Jinja Bar & Bistro, Secreto Lounge at Hotel St. Francis, Tortilla Flats, Zia Diner, El Parasol, India House, Santa Fe Bar and Grill, Weck's, Guadalupe Cafe, Pranzo Italian Grill, New York Deli, Saigon Vietnamese Kitchen...these are just a smattering of options! There are no limits to great eating options in Santa Fe -- all kinds of foods at all price points to fit your budget.

Historic sites, buildings, and even ruins are in Santa Fe proper or close by. Santa Fe's mutli-cultural identity and unique history is reflected all around the Plaza. Consider stepping into the beautiful Cathedral of Saint Francis of Assisi, Loretto Chapel (with it's historic and awe-inspiring spiral staircase), San Miguel Mission, and/or the Palace of the Governor's to experience the wonder of Santa Fe's history and arquitecture.

The sunny climate and dry desert air are hard to beat anywhere in the country, any season. And, with even short drives -- the views, the vistas, the sites -- are incomparable and unparalled. There is no place like Santa Fe.

And, I don't want to forget the outstanding out-of-doors options for fun. Skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, horse-back riding, hiking, walking, camping, paragliding -- you can name it! We love the out-of-doors in NM and love to show off the natural beauty of the state!

And, then, once you have had your fill of Santa Fe sites and activities -- there is Taos -- another fun New Mexican town full of art galleries, boutiques, and restaurants and with great skiing -- which is just up the road.

And, don't forget Abiquiu -- well known as the town where Georgia O'Keefe found her quiet, art refuge. Abiquiu is surrounded by unparalled beauty in it's beautiful rock formations and plateaus. Abiquiu Lake, the Chama River, and Ghost Ranch -- all surrounded by astoundingly gorgeous red sandstone cliffs -- are sites you will never forget, if you take the short drive to visit.

About Glynn

We -- Gene and Dee -- have been together since 2000. We have loved living in Santa Fe and come back often. Here I am with our German Shepherd, Xena (The Warrior Princess) -- her name fits her well. She loves the Santa Fe Dog Park right around the corner from the condo -- where Santa Fe as protected miles of open trails for dog owners to let our dogs run!

Glynn purchased this condo in 2006

Why Glynn chose Santa Fe

We bought this property because if offers everything we wanted in Santa Fe. Location, location, location! The condo has accessibility to everything -- including easy accessibility to the Santa Fe Plaza and nearby sites, the ski area, the Santa Fe Opera, the Railyard, food-shopping, the movie, and even the Santa Fe dog park! It is easy to get to the highway to Los Alamos, Pojoque, and Taos and to Albuquerque. Parking is no problem -- the condo has a parking lot and street parking.

What makes this condo unique

This is our -- and hopefully your -- home away from home!! We hope that you enjoy Santa Fe -- a place that has something for everyone!

Santa Fe's presentation of the Southwest in many of its facets is without parallel, much of it going back to the Country's beginnings, before the Pilgrims ever thought of sailing the Atlantic. The oldest continually habited house is here, the oldest church, with a self sustaining spiral staircase, a marvel. Ancient native ruins. The Jemez Mts. with a Caldera that exploded just a few million years ago with 100 times the force of Mt St. Helens, leaving behind a beautiful, extensive and grassed meadow, and the first clue to continental plate tectonics. Georgia O'Keefe made her home at Ghost Ranch and Abiquiu, painting their surrounds, and making them famous forever.

Everything you need and more!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the casita the last week of December--arriving Christmas Eve Day. We were not disappointed!! Very clean, very comfy and cozy. It is small but so very homey and everything you need is here! I was able to cook some meals here and had everything I needed for utensils, pots and pans, etc. (even a couple of cork screws for our evening glass of wine! )

My husband and I used the king bedroom, our teen used the queen bed. Both suited us, comfortable bedding and good sleeping for all!

The location here was perfect! We did the Canyon Road Farolito walk on Christmas Eve which was beautiful, albeit quite crowded.

We enjoyed a day of just walking the plaza (also quite beautiful as it was all decorated for the holidays), visiting the state capitol building, San Miguel Mission, Lorretto Chapel (spiral staircase. Wedding took place right after our visit)Cathedral Basilica of St. Frances, the public library, a couple of wine bars, and finally dinner at The Shed.

We also hiked the Atalaya hiking trail which begins at St. John's College. It took us about 3 hours up and 1.5 down. What a view at the top!

We also went to Ojo Calientes which was great but because of our timing there was again very crowded. Visited Bandalier National Monument and climbed around the pueblos. Had breakfast at Harry's Roadhouse (a must) and also ate dinners at the Santa Fe Inn and Anasazi, Gabriel's (they make amazing guacamole right at your table-yum). All had excellent eats. We were worried about our teen son finding things he'd eat since he's picky, but he always found something to suit his palate. He got hooked on the fresh salsas and chips!

We packed a lot into our 4 days, only regrets is it did go too fast. We would love to return and stay longer and perhaps a different time of year. We would wholeheartedly look up this beautiful casita to stay at again, for sure!

We were pleased with everything about it...we enjoyed a cozy toasty fire one evening, and a few of the movies (great collection of DVDs available), and also games and a puzzle.

We have nothing but great things to say about this place, the owners, and the manager. We encountered a couple minor issues (one our fault, and a running toilet). We notified Glynn right away and she responded so quickly. She had the handyman within and hour of our call to fix the toilet. That was fantastic!!

I appreciated being able to do laundry also as we packed failry lightly. Wonderful time. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Our guests are such a pleasure and we love it that they take the time to share their experiences of the condo and of Santa Fe and the surrounding area, as this guest has done. So much information here, beginning with the condo itself, followed by highlights of their trip here, and ending with favorite features of the condo, such as our repairman's immediate response to their needs and the laundry inside the condo. I have nothing to add!

Fabulous! Warm, cozy and just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic. The condo had everything needed and then some. Although it is on the ground floor it is not totally handicap accessible which made it tricky with my husband in a wheel chair.

We loved our stay!!!

Can’t wait for a return trip!

  • 4 of 5

I chose to get away for Thanksgiving and had a wonderful stay! The condo was easy to locate, roomy, with everything I’d want to be comfortable. Plus the Guide provided by the owners and Guest Book were full of great suggestions. Had some great meals & day trips as a result! Thanks!

Too much of the owners clutter

  • 3 of 5

The condo was adequate. However these items should be addressed:

The condo is very dark. Needs some higher wattage light bulbs! We could not find extra toilet paper until we checked under the bed for things we might have left behind. TP under the bed? There were items in the dryer. Someone entered the room Saturday morning before he realized the room was occupied

Owner's Response: This condo is loved by so many guests (see the other reviews) that this one took us by surprise, but we are addressing each item mentioned, as we know we can always improve. However, we have just discovered what we think happened with this rental. The guest made two large errors when submitting his reservation request: first he requested for a stay in 2019 instead of 2017, and then after being notified to clarify his dates over several emails, he said he wanted 2017 (not 2019 and would re-submit); he then submitted requests for 2 different condos for the same dates, another error which he also later acknowledged. Meanwhile he had the information for the "wrong" condo (wrong from what he had decided was the one he wanted), it seems, so he had the address and access code to a condo that wasn't yet cleaned and checked himself in; of course, since he finally settled on another condo, our housekeeper wasn't aware he had checked in to this condo and knocked on the door while he was there and hadn't finished with laundry and supplies. This is the only sense we can make of it. Please read our other reviews. We're sure you will love your stay in this charming condo.

Adorable condo!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I spent the weekend here and enjoyed every part of this condo. It was beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. It was a farther than walking distance to the plaza, but finding an Uber was extremely easy. It had everything that we needed, including a back patio area. By the end of the weekend, we had fallen in love with this adorable place and didn't want to leave! :)

Owner's Response: Many visitors to Santa Fe recommend using Uber to get around, even when they have a car, avoiding parking fees and hassles during the peak months, and simply for the ease. You can walk to the plaza from the condo complex, but we have owned two condos here in the past for their wonderful central location to all points around and to Santa Fe, and we always used a car, simply because we didn't want to be restricted to the plaza area--which is of considerable size when you consider Canyon Road, let alone the wonderful new Railyard district in the other directions, Museum Hill, etc etc -- and so we would go in a car and have an relaxing trip home after walking around all day (with loads of goodies in hand.

Santa Fe, New Mexico -- , Santa Fe is Travel and Leisures's #1 "Cultural Getaway", a multi-cultured community represented by native cultures, Spanish colonial charms, and a diverse art community. Santa Fe is, undoubtably, an internationally-renowned center for the arts. This scenic community has the second largest art market in the country (home to the world-famous Spanish and Indian Markets), world class museums by the Santa Fe Plaza and on Museum Hill, and outstanding galleries along Canyon Road, the Santa Fe Plaza, and by the Railyard. In my travels, I have always found joy in visiting the great museums of the world -- try the Georgia O'Keefe Museum, the Museum of International Folk Art, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, the Wheelright Museum of the American Indian, and the New Mexico History Museum, for a start! You won't be disappointed! And, for music lovers, the unparalled Santa Fe Opera offers opera in an environment like no other.

With 7,000 foot Rocky Mountain vistas and fantastic out-of-doors adventures, those with a more adventurous spirit

can explore the wild and rugged Sangre de Cristo Mountains, with spectacular down-hill and cross-country skiing, backpacking and day hikes, and drives that have unparalleled views and scores of native ruins to visit.

Truly, a visit to Santa Fe and its environs is a visit to the "Land of Enchantment". Enjoy!
