Great stay in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a long weekend in Santa Fe. We were originally booked at a property on Air BNB. At 7pm the night before we were departing we received notification that the host house cancelled our booking. Needless to say at the last minute this was a very big deal. There was absolutely nothing decent available. Got on VRBO and found this property owned by Fred and Debbie. Although it wasn't an instant book I put a request in hoping to hear back quickly. Within the hour I received confirmation that we were confirmed. I very much appreciated their quick response. This property looked pretty much as pictured. It is located a 10-12 minute walk from both the Plaza and Canyon Rd and all that those locations have to offer. It is very cozy and comfy in the Southwest style, which is super appropriate. The kitchen is a bit small, but was absolutely no problem for us as a party of 2. For a small kitchen it is very well stocked. The couch in the living room is very comfortable for sitting and relaxing and was happy with the mattress in the bedroom. I'm giving the property 5 stars, as I would go back and we are very happy with it, but I wanted to give you a few tips. There is a nice little wood burning stove in LR. If you are driving in you might want to consider bringing some wood with you. It is pretty small, so it can't be long logs. This unit is located on a fairly busy street. There is some street noise. Walls and windows are good, but you can hear some traffic noise, so if you are sensitive to that just putting it out there. This is also an upstairs unit that is accessed by a narrow spiral staircase. The step sizes are not evenly spaced so please use caution when going up and down. We were there in fall so not an issue. Winter might be slippery if there is snow or ice. Maybe the unit clears stairs, not sure about that. Last tip... in the BR there are 4 windows located high on the wall. There are no window covering so it is super bright in the morning. Fortunately my husband had some sleep blinders that I could use, as I like to sleep in, so you may want to bring some with you. If anyone will be sleeping in the LR there are some nice woven blinds, but again a lot of light gets through, so you will have the same issue. Just a few tips to make your stay perfect. Enjoy.

Want to stay here again

  • 5 of 5

Up winding stairs, off a busy street, this comfortable perch is beautifully situated. Grocer 2 blocks down, liquor store 2 block up, the Plaza 5-6 blocks straight down, the free shuttle to Museum Hill & Canyon Rd. 3 blocks away. I spent over a month here by myself enjoying the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival and all the wonderful arts & crafts without once needing a car. The apartment itself was the ideal home base: delicious bed, handy, workable kitchen, good bathroom, comfortable couch, and Wifi that never let you down. After 7 years of travel to Santa Fe, this is the first place I would consider renting again. Thank you, Debbie and Freddie. Hope we can do this again.

UNFORTUNATE CHOICE mainly due to POOR MAINTENANCE and NEGLECT.

  • 1 of 5

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.
