Santa Fe's Opera season is world class. The venue is designed as an open-air performance space, with the Sangre de Cristo mountains as backdrop. Internationally acclaimed artists offer everything from Mozart to Modern.

The tailgate picnics are as much a part of this Santa Fe tradition as the amazing sun sets.

Santa Fe Casita

  • 5 of 5

This casita is quite lovely and the owners were very responsive to needs and questions about the house and about Santa Fe. Two of us shared the house and we occasionally had friends over to share meals.The living areas outside the bedrooms were welcoming and held lots of good times and laughter. It was wonderful to be able to open window and feel the cool morning air.

Its a great way to have a hideaway in downtown Santa Fe.

This home is very quiet, conveniently located but dated.

  • 2 of 5

As said the home is only 2 blocks from Canyon Road with all its art and restaurants and maybe a quarter of a mile from the plaza. The home sits in a small assortment of small offices and is very quiet during the day and even more quiet at night. It is mostly clean and seemed very safe with great off street parking. Our two biggest problems were an overly soft bed and a 14" TV screen with only 4 local channels. There are no cable channels .. We had a good visit in Santa Fe inspite of the issues with the home. The home owners were delightful.

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

The location was even better than we expected. Easy walking distance to the plaza and canyon rd. Not fancy, but cozy, comfortable, clean and we felt right at home. Best for a single, 1 couple or couple with a child as the bathroom is only accessible through the main bedroom upstairs. There is a single futon in the basement but no other bathroom. Fully equipped, clean and very quiet at night for a restful good nights sleep. Owners were very available and helpful as we settled in ( we were a bit travel weary). There is a sweet, little garden seating area for an afternoon glass of wine or cup of tea. We spent most of our time exploring canyon rd galleries and going to museums downtown ( IAIA, Art, Contemporary Art, and Govenors Palace, on Museum Hill ( Folkart and Native American Art and Culture). On Canyon rd we loved The Teahouse for lunch or late afternoon refreshment; we did not have dinner here but expect it would be just as satisfying as lunch. Downtown we loved the tiny Palacio Cafe on Palace st for lunch and breakfast (excellent chicken enchiladas, pozole, salad with pears; also delicious breakfast). We had a delicious dinner and breakfast at Tune Up on Hickox st. When on Museum Hill the cafe there is also excellent. Our week here was a perfect anniversary get away; we could not see and do everything we wanted, so we will just need to come again. We also enjoyed meeting so many interesting, warm, friendly Santa Feans. This made our stay even more memorable. We don't seek luxury, and this private, quiet, cozy apt suited us very much. We would recommend this apt to our friends. We hope to go to Santa Fe again, and this would be our first choice accommodation.

Convenient Location at Reasonable Price

  • 4 of 5

The Delgado Street residence takes some getting used to but grows on you after a while. The location, near Canyon Road and the Plaza, is great for walking to a variety of museums, shops and restaurants. Off street parking is very handy. The owners are definitely responsive to questions, met us on the day we arrived and checked with us halfway through our stay to see if we needed anything. Lovely art works adorn many walls of the cozy home. The shower has plenty of very hot water, but be careful that no one opens a cold water faucet in the bathroom sink while someone else is taking a shower. That reduces cold water to the shower, making it way too hot until the mix is re-adjusted. We especially appreciated the non-slip surface on the bottom of the shower enclosure (a full sized tub). If you arrive during cold weather, you should check right away that the heaters (gas in dining room, electric baseboard in lower level) are turned up. The provided portable electric heater is especially needed in the bathroom, which has no heater itself. The metal cabinet of the toaster oven in the kitchen gets very hot while the oven is on, so don't place anything on top of the toaster oven while it's in use. Overall, the combination of great location and reasonable price is probably hard to beat in Santa Fe.
