1. I smelled GAS upon arrival - indeed repairman told me it was "bubbling" out the back of the gas stove! Was fixed - even though I slept there like that the first night.

2. Wet towels in washing machine & I tried to dry them - dryer not working?!! Apparently, owner tried to fix day before my arrival - but NEGLECTED to leave me a message about the problem! Was fixed.

3. Listing said it had AIR CONDITIONING - Note I arrived June 15 for 30 days - there was NO A/C anywhere. Complained about that & a VERY SMALL A/C Unit arrived and owner installed in Bedroom window. At least this made sleep somewhat possible. However, the Living/Dining area was in the 90's +. Excuse for NO 'a/c' was he took it out for the Winter?! This was JUNE!

4. A girlfriend came to stay for 3 days & she would use the SOFABED to sleep. Because it was so light and had no weight it took 2 of us to OPEN. In the morning it was IMPOSSIBLE to close and put back into the Sofa format in order for us to sit and watch TV in the evening. We saw it was damaged and the fabric torn. Reported to the owner who offered to come over each morning with a crowbar/wrench or the like, to get bed back. He insisted we were not to try ourselves.

5. Many days had spiders in bathtub. Needs a pest control visit.

6. A few of the posted pictures are not current. Missing furniture in bedroom & the existing chest of 3 drawers was stuffed full with Winter bedcovers! Asked owner to remove as I was there for 30 days and needed to put clothes away. All the plants are either MISSING or DEAD. The OUTSIDE area was filthy, full of cobwebs & trapped leaves and dirt. Took pictures.

7. I still smelled something inside and request a CARBON MONOXIDE detector which was promptly delivered.

8. One of the worst & most dangerous complaints (right up there with the gas leak) was the outside "SPIRAL STAIRCASE" - different height steps.

When finally downstairs outside you could smell gas again - NOTE this was not necessarily from this particular unit.

On a positive note the cleaning Maid did a good job.

Perfect location for exploring Santa Fe!

  • 4 of 5

This cozy casita became our home-away-from-home for a month, and we loved it! We called it our little hobbit house. It was clean, very comfortable, and well-stocked. We could walk everywhere--the Plaza, Canyon Road, the Railyard and market, and even Museum Hill. We enjoyed the fireplace on cold nights and the little outside deck for noon lunches. The market, just a block away, was perfect for all of our grocery needs--excellent selection, as well as deli lunches. We will definitely return on another trip to the area.

Cozy adobe retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay-it was a cozy retreat in the winter. It was just the right size for the 2 of us and the location was great. The bathroom was very nicely done, bright with plenty of towels and the kitchen was small but well stocked with pots, dishes, glasses, etc. There's a small specialty store a half block down for basics and it is walking distance (10-15 mins) to the Plaza or Museum Hill or the Railroad District (25-30 mins). There is a free shuttle that runs every 30 mins that stops a block away. The living space is on one floor but there is a spiral staircase leading up to the unit. The owners were very responsive to my emails, as this was the first time I'd used VRBO and I wasn't sure what the process was. All in all, a very pleasurable experience.

Convenient comfort

  • 4 of 5

My best friend and I enjoyed staying here with our young girls for the weekend. The space is cozy, but suited us well. We loved the little porch for sitting with morning coffee or evening drinks. The walk to town is easy enough. There's a nice little market (easy walk) nearby for stocking your kitchen upon arrival (plus a great coffee shop). The neighbors were very friendly and helpful (especially when maneuvering the huge truck that the car rental place gave us for driving that weekend--parking is tight!).

I would definitely stay here again, and the hosts were very quick to respond with any questions or suggestions.

Wonderful stay!

This casita was great. Ideal for a couple or a very small family. Walking distance to shopping and even a little market for groceries.
