About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)


Located atop Rosario Hill in a quiet setting with views of downtown Santa Fe and the majestic Sandia, Jemez and Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Casa Luminosa is minutes from what makes Santa Fe 'The City Different.' Nestled in the foothills of Santa Fe’s Northside at an elevation of approximately 7000 feet, at Casa Luminosa you are poised to explore a city known for its confluence of scenic beauty, long history, cultural diversity, and an extraordinary concentration of arts, music and fine dining.

For the past 25 years we have traveled to Santa Fe. Each time we experience again and again the restful beauty and restorative energy that is the transformative nature of this city. In keeping with that spirit of renewal, we hope our home away from home will allow you to experience this peace as well.

Luminosa is Spanish for sunlit, something you will experience in the 1,350 square feet of luxurious interior living space plus two upper decks.

In the upper-level living quarters there are sun-bathed vistas stretching throughout the day across the southern horizon. Whether you are greeting a new day with your morning coffee on the upper front deck or drinking in another magnificent New Mexico sunset on the upper back deck, the tranquil light of Casa Luminosa will soothe your soul. Enjoy a gas-fired kiva fireplace, luxurious leather recliner and sleeper sofa, wide-screen cable television with access to more than 100 channels, DVD player, high-speed wireless Internet access, HP LaserJet printer, dining area, and fully equipped cook's kitchen with Jenn-Air range/oven. For outdoor cooking, a charcoal grill is available on the back deck.

Downstairs, the master bedroom contains a king bed with a luxurious Simmons mattress. The master bath features dual sinks, a jet tub and a separate extra-large shower. You will find a queen bed in the guest bedroom, also equipped with a plush Simmons mattress. The guest bedroom exits onto a private back porch. The guest bath contains an extra-large shower. A front-load washer and dryer are also available off the downstairs hallway.

Our casa is located several blocks north of the intersection of Griffin Street and Paseo de Peralta. Beware, some online maps show our casa at the intersection, but you will need to zoom in to pinpoint our location up the hill, near the end of Rio Grande Pl.

From Casa Luminosa, take a stroll down Rosario Hill to The Plaza in “the heart of Santa Fe”. The city’s cultural and geographic center, The Plaza is where the El Camino Real, the Santa Fe Trail, and the Old Pecos Trail end. Here you will be greeted by vestiges of Hispanic, Native American, and Western traditions and will be captivated by the music, design, jewelry, Southwestern cuisine, art and dance that abound. For groceries and other shopping, you are only a six-minute drive from the DeVargas Mall at the intersection of Guadalupe and Paseo de Peralta.

Whether you come to partake of the winter sports, Santa Fe Opera, distinctive Christmas festivities, ancient ruins of the Southwest, tribal artists at the Indian Market, or simply to escape the summer heat, Casa Luminosa will provide an experience that we hope will keep you returning to our tranquil sunlight year after year.

Destino Santa Fe is a cooperative, private group of homeowners and we are proud to represent Casa Luminosa.

We second all the raves below

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a wonderful week at the Casa Luminosa. As previous reviewers have noted, the unit is extremely well located, well equipped, quiet and comfortable. We loved watching the sunrise in the morning and set in the evenings we stayed in. We highly recommend this VRBO to others.

Great Condo, close in with views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week stay in October. It's easy walking distance to the square. The views are fantastic. It's well equipped, and being an end unit, it's private and quiet. I would definitely stay again!

Casa Luminosa - Attractive Condo in Great location

I stayed for 5 weeks at this lovely, well cared for condo, featuring up-scale décor, modern bathrooms, privacy and great views. The kitchen is well-appointed, along with ample closet space, full internet, TV and sound system, plus many extras to make for a comfortable visit to Santa Fe. Helpful and caring owner and property management team made everything about the stay easy and enjoyable.

Incredible Casa Luminosa

  • 5 of 5

Our love for Santa Fe began only two years ago. Our first visit we stayed for four days in an inn and immediately planned to come back for a month that fall. We checked VRBO and found a delightful condo overlooking the city with incredible views. We booked it again for this past September but the owner had sold it. Happily, we found Casa Luminosa in the same group of condos and booked it through Destino Santa Fe via VRBO. What a find. This end unit was even better with huge windows on the second level living area overlooking the magnificent scenery in every direction. The furnishings were perfect, the place spotless inside. Every possible need had been anticipated. Sue Kimberley and Chris were a joy to deal with. The location was walking distance to galleries, grocery shopping, restaurants, the central core while far enough away to be quiet. Parking was outside the door. It was idyllic.

15 great months at Casa Luminosa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are nearing the end of a total of 15 months at Casa Luminosa, and we want to provide information to prospective renters on the unit’s splendid features. We selected Casa Luminosa for 3 main reasons: (1) its 270 degree view that extends from the Santa Fe Ski Area to Atalaya Peak to the entire downtown area of Santa Fe to the Sandia Mountains above Albuquerque; (2) the comfortable, open, well-equipped, nicely furnished 2-story living space; and (3) the location within a short walking distance of the Santa Fe Plaza. We’ll never forget the incredible sunrises above the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

We will have nothing but fond memories of our lengthy stay at Casa Luminosa. Whatever minor issues arose were promptly addressed by the friendly and accommodating owner and management.

Great family getaway with pets

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 humans and 2 canines were very comfortable during our stay in June, 2014. We had ample of room to spread out. The unit was tastefully decorated and not cluttered. We especially like the openness of the living and dining areas, and the views were outstanding from these rooms. The leather sofa and lounge chair were so comfortable to relax in after a long day of hiking and sightseeing. The bathrooms were modern and large. The unit is within walking distance to the Plaza (about 10 minutes). There is also an excellent French bakery that we walked to every morning to get breakfast. We love to hike, and there were so many hiking trails within 10 minutes of Casa Luminosa. We can't say enough good things about this unit!
