Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

Enjoy a heritage home with modern comfort when you stay at Harmony House! This 120-year-old adobe house has been completely updated but retains its charm, its terraced garden, and its hummingbirds!

Located within easy walking distance of the Plaza and Canyon Road, this splendid home has been fitted with all the modern conveniences from air-conditioning to WiFi and cable, yet it retains its unique design, natural materials, and sunny aspect. It's easy to imagine 19th-century life at Harmony House, yet you won't sacrifice one whit of comfort while enjoying the original layout and rich history of this home.

Terraces, levels, and short flights of steps are a hallmark of this property. Enter the blue wooden gate (set into a handsome low stone wall topped with Adobe) from the street and you immediately find yourself in a landscaped patio, stepping up a few feet to a flagstone path flanked by flower beds. Beyond that is the covered front porch, roomy and shaded, with a bench for watching the butterflies and hummingbirds visit the flowering plants.

To one side of the house is another patio with seating for a crowd, a big table, and a charcoal grill, all below a pergola. Steps cut into the hillside lead you through a terraced garden hardscaped with river stones. Breathtaking -- and not the last of the patios at Harmony House! Directly off the master suite is a small, sun-soaked stone patio with a cozy table for two, flanked by high stone privacy walls. What a lovely spot to end each day, stargazing over that final glass of wine.

Although the outside of Harmony House is dazzling, the interior equals it for interest and beauty. Wood floors, open-beam ceilings, wood-burning fireplaces, and southwestern crafts evoke the original look of the house, while state-of-the-art flat-screen TVs, beautiful lighting, and luxe furnishings update the decor perfectly.

Choose from two sitting rooms in which to spend those precious hours of downtime: the main living area, with its huge fireplace, comfy sofa, and overstuffed reading chairs; or the adjacent study, a smaller and quieter area with more relaxing seating amid lovely artwork. Although Harmony House is quite large, the design evokes a cozy feeling that is quite welcoming. The name is well chosen; you will feel a sense of the balance and harmony of this home.

Of course, "cozy" is all very well for living spaces, but in the kitchen, spaciousness is preferred, and that's what you will find at Harmony House. The kitchen has been completely modernized, with a gas range, double sink, cupboards packed with cooking pots, dishes, utensils, and flatware, as well as all the time-saving appliances that mean so much during your vacation. Set the coffee pot to brew just as you wake up; warm leftovers and takeout in the microwave; toss everything into the dishwasher and head out the door!

There are two places to dine indoors: the formal dining room, with a fine wooden table for 6 and double glass doors opening onto a patio; and a smaller round table for 4 just off the living room. This smaller table also makes a great place to play cards, work a jigsaw puzzle, or surf the web on your laptop. Or, if your party includes children, make this the kids' table and let the grown-ups dine in splendor below the modern chandelier in the dining room.

When it's time to head to bed, everyone will be delighted with the accommodations at Harmony House. The master suite contains a king-sized bed, and the other two bedrooms each have two twin beds, making for greater flexibility when friends and mixed groups are traveling together. All linens and towels are provided, of course, and Harmony House also has spare pillows, blankets, throws, and all the luxe little touches that make a good night's rest into a great sleep.

Enjoy a private fireplace and large flat-screen TV in the master suite, as well as access to the private patio. The en-suite bath offers a walk-in shower, while the second full bath has both a tub and shower option, with pretty tiling. All the bedrooms are quiet, spotless, and beautiful. You'll awake refreshed every morning at Harmony House!

Convenient to Hillside Park as well as all the history, art, shopping, and fine dining of downtown Santa Fe, Harmony House could not have a better location, more interesting heritage, or more comfortable design. Experience the unique pleasure of merging the best of old and new -- come stay at Harmony House soon!

Wonderful girl trip!

  • 4 of 5

This property is within walking distance to the plaza which is full of shops, history and lots of great restaurants! Parking is expensive ($2/half hour), so we walked! It is uphill coming back to the house. We enjoyed the numerous patios where there was plenty of room to enjoy the great weather and even did our own yoga. The main dining room had plenty of room to play games. There were only 3 wine glasses, and no coffee, so these are two things that would have been nice to have available to us. Showering with 6 ladies was a challenge and we did run out of water, but we learned to go quick and try to spread them out. FYI, the driveway is steep and our Nissan Altima rental rubbed each time we went in/out the driveway. We did not have this problem with the mid size suv. There were plenty of towels which was an original concern with so many ladies. The house had plenty of local guides that were fun to look at. Picking up and dropping off the key at a different location was not a problem. The gentleman that checked us in was very helpful telling us the must see attractions and recommend restaurants. It was a great trip and we would definitely come back to this property.

Lovely, Authentic, Well Located Adobe House

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for a family trip to escape the Texas August heat. It was my husband and I, our two boys (10 and 12) and one set of grandparents. The house worked well for our group.

My initial impression of the house was that it is completely adorable!! So darn authentic and cute!!!! Luckily the furniture is not period and is very comfortable. The 3 outdoor living areas are beautiful. It was nice to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine on the patio.

The house is clean and the kitchen has everything you need to cook meals. I was happy to see trash bags, laundry detergent, ziplock bags etc. There is a washer and dryer too.

The location is GREAT! Almost all the houses claim to be with in walking distance of the square but this one is truly a short walk. The neighborhood is quiet and very peaceful.

A couple things a potential renter should be aware of: the keyword to this 1930 adobe house is 'authentic,' that means the bathrooms too. They are not in bad shape, just don't expect a large shower or a jetted soaking tub.

Speaking of authentic, the kitchen is very cute but don't expect a large, open room with professional grade appliances. Everything works, is clean and well kept.

It may be a bit of a stretch to call the house air conditioned. There is a window unit in the living room which pretty efficiently cools the main part of the house but the bedrooms (particularly the master and small room at the back of the house) don't get a lot of A/C. Luckily, Santa Fe nights are cool so it was barely a problem.

The management company was very responsive to my request to book the property and answered all our questions promptly during our stay.

Would I rent this cute house again? Yes. The location, patios, cleanness and cuteness overrule small showers and the A/C turned out to be okay for the most part.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall the experience was lovely. Unfortunately, the main oven did not work which inconvenienced our holiday meal preparation. The beds were on the very firm side and were not comfortable for most guests.
