About Janet Urian

I am a long-time real estate broker in Santa Fe (30+ years). I have a 501 (c) (3) animal rescue organization that I manage and pay for by myself. I personally tend to this unit and try to make sure of a wonderful stay and customer satisfaction.

Janet Urian purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Janet Urian chose Downtown

This house is special because of the location off West San Francisco Street and the fact that it is an historic double adobe. Its convenience and privacy can't be beat. It is like a sanctuary. It is not visible from the main street, and neighbors face in other directions. I was impressed with the beauty and history of the building. It is completely remodeled, and I update it regularly.

What makes this apartment unique

Many people enjoy this because they don't need a vehicle to go most places and it has the ambience of a traditional neighborhood. Some have not had vehicles. There is one tenant on the other side with whom you share the front and back porches and back yard. You can walk to the mall and its two grocery stores, and walk all over downtown. I have not had any crime experience in this neighborhood in over 25 years, but caution is always advisable.

Cozy "studio plus" in a great location!

  • 3 of 5

This property was about what I'd expect for the price, and I'd stay there again if I didn't want to spring for something a bit larger/nicer. We loved the pleasant walk through the neighborhood to the plaza, and just about everything in the home was perfectly serviceable.

From the pictures, I expected there to be a separate bedroom from the living room, but it's all one room (with separate kitchen and bathroom). The main bed could have been more comfortable (felt like a cheap mattress), and the sheets that were provided for the sofa-bed were too large and slipped off during the night (there was no mattress pad.)

The property is part of a duplex, and the next door tenant was extremely friendly (I kind of had to hide from her--very talkative. Seemed like a nice if slightly crazy person. She said she was moving out that day, and told me all about her new place, but then she was still there during our stay with no signs of moving.)

Janet was responsive to our needs but seemed pretty stressed out.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the compliments. Sorry if the pictures didn't tell the story, but I think living room/bedroom combo is in the description too. The mattress is a Denver mattress. I asked the hotels where they buy theirs, and got it there. There was a mattress pad for the sofa bed but someone asked me to take it. Sorry I forgot it wasn't there anymore, but when guests call to ask for something, I bring it over right away.

Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

Janet was a lovely host and my client loved staying in her home. She was very communicative throughout our booking process and was flexible when we had to change and extend dates.

I would definitely recommend renting Janet's home, even though I did not stay there personally, as my client raved about it. We hope to book again when we come back to the Santa Fe area.

Great Location, Well Stocked and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

We traveled to Santa Fe to attend the Spanish Market. We were looking for a place that was reasonably priced and close to the Plaza. This turned out to be a perfect choice. It has everything you could possibly need including tons of literature on what to do in Santa Fe and the surrounding areas. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the Plaza. The house is located off the street which makes it very quiet. The neighboring dogs would bark occasionally as we walked by, but we never had problems with barking at night. The bathroom is a bit small, but it served the purpose. The shower is great. Although we didn't use the kitchen for cooking meals, it is well stocked should you choose that option. We will definitely say here again and highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to Santa Fe.

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week and loved the casita. The location couldn't have been better for walking to the plaza and exploring the neighborhood.

There were a couple things I spoke with Janet about, (bedding and lighting), and she was open and responsive to my suggestions so next time we come will be even better!

Thank you!
