Overview

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 Museums...to 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 Scott Oury

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!

Scott Oury purchased this condo in 2006

Why Scott Oury chose New Mexico

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, 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!

Notes:
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.

Beautiful Apartment in Great Santa Fe Location

  • 5 of 5

We are leaving this lovely condo this morning after a two-night stay. What a delightful experience! The space is every bit as colorful and as seen in the photos. What the photos do NOT capture, however, is how very comfortable this condo is. Nothing missing for a guest's comfort: from the coffee pot & condiments in the kitchen to the wealth of towels in the bathroom to the amazing number of dvd's in the living room ... we could have stayed for a month! We slept well in the quiet bedrooms and enjoyed a glass of wine in the evening in the courtyard. Uber got us to Indian Market for five bucks, so we didn't even need our car. You'll enjoy everything about this condo. We certainly did.

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.

Very cute and well located condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Santa Fe. The condo is quiet, cozy and comfortable, and we made it work for four adults. We had some meals at home, and the condo kitchen had all the dishware and utensils we needed. A close drive to the plaza, and even closer drive to a grocery store.

Great value for the price.
