This is my second Homeaway vacation rental. I began with my Hawaii home in 2009, so I'm a happy and well-reviewed host, and know the needs of vacationers. My journey began in Southern California, then Oregon, then Hawaii. Santa Fe has been a second home since 2011. I earned a BA in Psychology at UH Hilo, minoring in art. You will see some of my work adorning the casita. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have and am very close to my phone!
Lisa Bartoletti purchased this apartment in 2013
I love architecture and design. The pueblo style of Santa Fe is actually the only current architecture that is native american. The casita exudes so much character and authenticity. The location is ideal for walking to best things in Santa Fe. I have decorated it in a combination Santa Fe Southwest style (a mix of Native and Spanish influences) along with modern touches.
Location! And the authentic neighborhood, the park across the way, proximity to trails, galleries, museums, restaurants.
We throughly enjoyed our stay at this property. It's an outstanding location with convenient on-site parking. The interior is well-decorated. We loved having a kitchen for snacks and cooking whenever we wanted. The accommodations were a great value when compared to a hotel stay. We would definitely stay here again!
~An army of Pharaoh ants in the kitchen caused me to throw out the fruit and food I'd bought. And no, I did NOT leave any dirty dishes in the sink or on the counter. They just poured out a crack in the grout.
~Some garden insect crawling on me in the bed at night woke me up a couple of times each night.
~The sky lights in the bedroom had me awake before dawn.
~The sheets were a dingy color where other's bodies have lain because they are not bleached in between uses. ~The comforter had yellow stains that I just did not want to think about. These were very apparent because I folded the comforter over from one side to the other because it was so hot in the bedroom. The stains are on the lower portion of the comforter.
~The ac was off when I arrived. I had to close off the bedroom in an attempt to get it tolerable. I never was able to use the living room because those doors had to be left closed to get the bedroom at something less than 80! The coolest the thermostat on the ac ever read was 73.
~It was just way to hot to cook in the kitchen.
~The park across the street no longer exists.
This was not the cost effective stay I had hoped for. It was pretty miserable.
I've never had to write a bad review of a VRBO/Home Away experience, but I have to be honest.
What I have presented here are the facts of my experience. I took pictures of the ants, the bugs in the bedroom and the stains in case Home Away doesn't believe me. I didn't think to take a picture of the thermostat.
I rented this property for three nights, which comfortably provided a perfect home base for our trip to Santa Fe. All shops on Canyon Road are easily accessible by foot, along with the Teahouse restaurant (which was the best meal we had in Santa Fe). The plaza is close by, which we drove to and parked in a very affordable parking garage. In addition, a nice walk along the Santa Fe river is just minutes away from this quirky, yet enchanting adobe.
The casita (Amor) had a very well stocked kitchen, roomy bathroom, extremely comfortable and romantic bedroom with attached portal! Great for coffee in the morning and people watching! The skylights in the bedroom provided an unexpected wake-up call each morning. There is no sleeping in at this property, but carpe diem! The living room had two comfortable sofas that my two kids slept comfortably on. The only drawback was the private patio, featuring an enchanting statue of Saint Francis. The stonework was uneven and the chairs could use an upgrade. However, it provided tremendous views of the night sky.
Along with a trip to Taos and the Blue Mesa Alpaca ranch, I would highly recommend this property that is well worth the price for it's charming, authentic, and comfortable stay. I am planning another trip in the winter, just my husband and I! I can't wait! Thanks Lisa!
We had a wonderful stay here in Santa Fe! The Casita is very comfortable and inviting with everything that we needed and more. The location was perfect to access the River trail for our daily walks with our dog . Very nice walk to the Plaza and close enough to explore on foot many nooks and crannies of lovely Santa Fe! We will definitely return here ....looking forward to it already!
I absolutely adored this place. I was here to spend a few days alone to write and relax, and I left feeling inspired and rested. The casita felt like home. It was stocked with all of the necessities- cooking essentials, toiletries. It is full of artistic details that entertain the eye. I woke up to a chorus of birds everyday. The location is great if you like the galleries of Canyon Road. The Plaza was a longer walk- about 20-30 minutes on foot. I will be returning to this place again and again.
We had a wonderful stay at Casita amor. Everything that was possibly needed was there and we were very comfortable. Will be back to Santa Fe and will stay at Casita amor. Thank you for a great stay.
Gorgeous, historic Santa Fe was voted best small town by Conde Naste readers in 2015! Located at 7000 feet elevation, it is a mountain town known around the world for it's artistic heart. It offers excellent workshops in photography, all types of art. Restaurants are also excellent. Everything from fine dining to well-established New Mexican restaurants abound. Canyon Road itself has not only a few dozen galleries, but fine dining such as Geronimo's, and the oldest bar in the nation, El Farol. One mile from the plaza with the oldest church, and the Basilica of Santa Fe. Amazing shopping all around the plaza. Expect bright, sunny days year 'round. Some snow in the winter, with melts in between. Summer is not too hot, and the dry mornings are often punctuated by afternoon monsoons including thunder rumbling against the mountains. The rains cool the day and refresh everything.
