This was a truly delightful experience. Given the choice to stay in a 5 star hotel or this house, we would choose this house every time. So, so well done! The Stewart Family Houston, TX 1/2/15

“A lovely home in a great location with a beautiful courtyard. We would love to return when everything is in bloom! We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed touring the Santa Fe area. Despite changing conditions - snow one day, 70 degrees another - the home was always comfortable.” April 2015 Flis-Nord family. (MA)

“What a beautiful house! It has been such a pleasure to stay here & feel at home in Santa Fe. Walking to the plaza, museums, galleries and wonderful restaurants. I will fondly remember my visit to Artist Adobe and hope to return." October 2014, KSW, (CO)

"Beautiful home-I loved the way it was decorated. Little surprises at every turn. It was perfect for our needs in every way - accommodations, location, everything - just perfect. Would love to stay here again! Shanna & Marn Zachary"

"Property is conveniently located within walking distance to plaza and restaurants. Comfortable home with all the conveniences of home plus beautiful courtyards made for a lovely stay in Santa Fe. The only difficulty is the entrance to driveway, located between two businesses, is a bit difficult to enter from one direction. We always drove around the block to enter from the left. We would definitely stay here again."

"The Artist Adobe sits just off Guadalupe to give you privacy and peace but it affords access to all the best walks in the downtown area. We used this as a hub for my husband and 2 (grown) sons w/ SO's for attending wedding activities. It gave us the opportunity to independently enjoy the Santa Fe downtown and large enough for us to have our down time and privacy . So many cozy spots to enjoy the patio space for reading and contemplation. The home kitchen is expertly appointed, home is colorfully and comfortably decorated and plenty of interesting reads for those just wanting some local/ regional material. The house had such a great " how to" manual that no additional help was needed.

Stayed: October 2015; Source: HomeAway Family"

"An absolutely adorable home in a great location. Easy walk to the Plaza, museums and many restaurants. We especially enjoyed the courtyard/outside patio, very private. It was a very comfortable stay for a family of 5. We were sorry to leave and would definitely stay here again should we find ourselves in Santa Fe."

                                                              Cozy and spacious in a great location

                                                              The home was charming and spacious. The kiva fireplace was a great addition. The kitchen was really well stayed stocked. Although we were here in March, we were able to enjoy the outdoor area during the day. There were six adults and it fit us all very comfortably. The location was excellent - literally down the street from the Georgia O’Keefe museum and walkable to the Plaza. There were several good restaurants just up the street. This home is a gem.

                                                              Great location, five blocks from the plaza, yet secluded and quiet.

                                                              Perfect in every way

                                                              The artist adobe was a bit like winning a lottery. We walked in and the four of us knew we had scored a great place!! Clean, quiet, nicely stocked kitchen, a working kiva and so close to the center of town that it was an easy walk. Couldn’t have asked for a better combination. I would highly recommend it to anyone and plan on coming back in the future.

                                                              FANTASTIC PROPERTY!

                                                              My two sisters and I had a marvelous weed long Christmas stay in Santa Fe at this property. Location is excellent - the plaza, great neighborhood bakery, terrific restaurants, Georgia Keefe Museum - all within easy walking distance. Convenient access to all major thoroughfares if you need to travel by car. The unit is well equipped with kitchen items. We prepared meals just like we would at home. The WiFi was reliable and fast. The guest info book was very informative and gave us all the info we needed to enjoy our stay and be good guests. Parking for rental car was amble and convenient. The bedrooms and baths were well equipped. The beds were snuggly with enough blankets and pillows. Loved the fireplace. If you want an experience with "old Santa Fe" house vibe with a modern twist, this is the place to stay. FIVE STARS! We thank you so much!

                                                              The property is a unique casita near the plaza, wonderfull location, and a beautiful house.

                                                              The house is has an outdoor patio that adds a room, wonderful linens, well equipped kitchen, and has a great ambiance!

                                                              Charming and Ecclectic!

                                                              My girlfriends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Artist Adobe. This house was super clean and well maintained. The kitchen is fully stocked with just about every pot and pan you would need if you were cooking a meal in and the patio was a wonderful place to soak up the morning or afternoon with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Want to buy art? All the art in the house is for sale! The plaza is just a few blocks away and convenient to everything. We basically ate our way through the town and every single meal was amazing. I particularly loved the Shed and Cowboy Coyote, but you can't go wrong with any of the wonderful eateries. I would definitely stay here again! I do want to give a mention to the "checking out procedures", the "what to do with linens and towels" is written differently online versus what is in the listing and needs to be updated. Other than that ..5 STARS!!!!
