About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + LR qeen sofabed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Live the Magic of the Land of Enchantment. Discover Casa Margarita – a tranquil Adobe Styled sanctuary for the discriminating guest seeking a true Southwest experience!

Enjoy the fully-furnished 3BR, 2BA, 1,700 sq. ft. home which rests on 2 peaceful acres of sun-drenched high desert in Eldorado, where the mountain views stretch to the horizon. Here you are just 20 minutes (13 miles) from downtown Santa Fe.

Your spacious master bedroom with a luxurious king bed and 32” flat screen TV is appropriately decorated to blend with local culture and tradition. Open the glass French doors and meditate to the restive music of a waterfall cascading into the garden pond. The oversized master bath has a large Jacuzzi tub, shower, Bidet, as well as a walk-in closet.

Unwind outside in your fully-enclosed flagstone patio complete with everything you desire for entertaining groups or for romantic private dinners for two. The Casa is pleasantly apart from the chaotic noise and lights of the city (as well as neighbors), and the bucolic scene is ideal for gazing at the brilliant display of stars above.

The genuine viga ceilings in the living/dining area compliment the cozy glow of a warming hearth and the native atmosphere of the decor. There is a 2nd flat screen TV as well as a modern Bose sound system. Soothing radiant heat emanates from the tile floors. The sofa opens to expose a queen bed for two.

One guest room sleeps two on a queen bed. A third has a trundle (two twins) and also serves as an office with desk and WIFI. A separate bathroom serves guests with an enclosed tub with shower.

Laundry facilities, linens, washer-dryer, cable TV, and WIFI complete the picture. The fully equipped kitchen provides several sets of daily utensils as well as quality dinnerware for special events. Formal dining accommodates 6 persons in full-sized leather chairs. Extra folding chairs are available.

The health conscious guest will discover the water to be refreshingly tasty, as all of it is treated with a state of the art ultra purification system. Guests arrive via the paved driveway which leads to the 2-car garage. Doorways are ramped for disabled access.

Your home away from home resides in the rural residential community of Eldorado where all common amenities are within minutes. Gourmet restaurants, world class spas, wilderness trekking, skiing, and the famous arts and music of Santa Fe are just a brief scenic drive away.

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

Peaceful Desert Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent six weeks at Casa Margarita during the winter and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The house is an easy 20 minute drive to the center of Santa Fe yet is completely removed from the crowds and traffic of the city. We enjoyed the desert views, expansive sunsets, and long walks throughout the neighborhood. The Eldorado community has an extensive network of walking and biking trails so it is rarely necessary to walk along the roads. The fish pond in the backyard attracts multiple types of birds to splash and play.

The house is beautiful and very well-equipped. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and the living room has comfortable chairs for reading or watching TV. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. We loved Casa Margarita and we hope to return someday.

Perfectly located and cozy beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

My family spent Christmas at this fantastic property! The home was fully equipped with everything and was impeccably maintained! It is in a beautiful neighborhood that is surrounded by mountains. It is ideally situated because it is so peaceful but still have grocery store within walking distance. It is close to highway to be able to easily dine in Santa Fe. We loved this home. Plan to return!

My family and I stayed at Casa Margarita the 2nd week of October. The house is very comfortable, is filled with beautiful art, and the rear patio has wonderful views of the mountains. Eldorado is very quiet and out of the fray of Santa Fe but still close enough to enjoy all of Santa Fe's amenities. This is a great jumping off point for day trips or hiking trips to the various national and state parks. Will definitely rent this house, again.

Beautiful House/Great Views/Perfect Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

Casa Margarita is a beautiful house with great mountain views. Our experience there could not have been better. It is a beautiful, comfortable home with lovely furnishings. There is an amazing art collection which is can be seen in every corner of the house. The kitchen is well supplied with everything you could possibly need. We loved the fish pond which can be seen from the master bedroom.

We found Casa Margarita far preferable to staying in Santa Fe. You have easy access to Santa Fe but you don't have to go there for everything you need. Nearby Eldorado has a good grocery store and restaurants. We have gone to Café Fina many times and never been disappointed.

We could not have been happier with our choice of this house. We wished we could have stayed longer, but hope to return soon.

Best Backyard Ever to see the sunsets and stars at night!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Casa Margarita for the month of July and really loved the home!

We had never stayed in the Eldorado area before and we were pleasantly surprised at how close to Santa Fe the neighborhood was and what an easy drive!

The home was beautiful and had one of the best equipped kitchens for a rental, we even hosted a brunch for family and friends during our stay!

The backyard pond was a nice touch, hearing the waterfall at night was so relaxing and the yard was beautifully landscaped.

Tasteful artwork gives the home a Santa Fe feel and we will return sometime in the near future to experience the home during the cool winter months and take advantage of the fireplace!
