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."

Stayed: April 2015; Source: HomeAway Family"

A wonderful place for old friends to gather. A great location for walking to the Plaza and Santa Fe sights such as the Georgia O'Keeffe museum.

Artist Adobe is a lovely casita tucked away from the main road and right in the middle of everything there is to do and love in Santa Fe. The caduta is ready to go, thoughtfully decorated and stocked and very clean. We can't wait to come back.

Perfect location; private; immaculate

  • 5 of 5

We loved our little casita! there were three of us on a girls' weekend to Santa Fe for three nights of Opera. The casita offered us seclusion, quiet and a perfect location. The place was immaculate with plenty of extra towels, a fully stocked kitchen. a wonderful washer and dryer, a perfect patio for cocktail hour. Really could not have been better. We could jump on the highway to the Opera or walk to the Plaza. Stay here!

The best casita yet!

  • 5 of 5

We visit Santa Fe for an extended weekend during a conference each summer and have rented casitas in the past. This year we made plans to meet some out of state friends there and needed more than one bedroom and bath, and Artist Adobe fit the bill perfectly. The location could not be better, and the privacy of the site made it into a quiet oasis after a busy day of sightseeing. The home itself is decorated in a pleasingly eclectic fashion, with neutral backgrounds highlighting the more colorful artistic objects. I was especially pleased with the kitchen, as most vacation rentals are sadly lacking in decent kitchen equipment. I always travel with a sharp chef's knife and a serrated bread knife, but didn't even have to bother unpacking mine, as everything needed was truly right there, even an apron! One of our favorite restaurants, Fire and Hops, is only a few steps away on Guadalupe Street, and our friend enjoyed lunch there one day. We dined on the patio each night, enjoying the cool breezes and sometimes some distant thunder. Speaking of cool, we did not realize the casita had no air conditioning, but that was only a problem for me on our first night, which happened to be at the end of a very hot day. As the weather cooled into the 80s for the rest of our stay we were much more comfortable and the powerful fans provided in each room helped keep the air moving. I mention this only because some people have medical conditions which can make hot environments problematic for them. I greatly appreciated the presence of a small grab bar in each tub/shower, as I am mildly disabled and need the help to maintain balance. I do suggest that the owner also consider providing anti-slip mats for the tubs, or that renters take one of their own for added safety if they are a bit unsteady on their feet. That being said, we and our friends wanted for nothing during our stay and greatly appreciated all the amenities of the casita. I highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for this wonderful and honest review. A lot of attention has gone into the details you mentioned so we're glad you enjoyed your stay so much. When we stay in the house, we apply our own method of air conditioning, e.g. close the windows and curtains in the morning, and then open everything up after the sun goes down. We are also in the process of making more of the windows operable to address the situation. Thanks for the suggestion of anti-slip mats for the tubs. We'll get those right away. And, yes we're cooks. That's why the kitchen is so well equipped. We are fans of sharp knives too. Enjoy your next stay with us!
