About Tracy Fulton and Joseph Mahoney

Tracy and Joseph live in Dallas, Texas. Tracy is from Wichita Falls, Texas and Joseph is from Monterey Park, California. Casita Eileen is the culmination of years of friendship, dreaming, planning, endings, and new beginnings. For most of Tracy's adult life he visited Northern New Mexico with his best friend Eileen Byrne. For many years they enjoyed trips to Santa Fe, Red River, Angel Fire, Taos, and Eagle Nest. Their trips included great friends, great food and always great wine. They talked about someday retiring to the 'City Different' and enjoying all of the relaxation and beauty of 'The Land of Enchantment'. Owing a casita they could share was always the goal of these life long friends. Plans for their joint retirement ended when Eileen was diagnosed with cancer at an early age. During her courageous battle with cancer, Eileen was recommended to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston as her last hope. Tracy joined her on her appointment at the hospital for the first of many visits. During the first visit, Tracy had the good fortune of meeting his partner Joseph while in Houston. The first conversations they had revealed that they had the same love for Santa Fe that Tracy and Eileen had shared for many years. Joseph had lived in Santa Fe for several years prior to returning to Houston. Joseph immediately shared Tracy's love for Eileen and accompanied her to the hospital for several more visits. Tracy and Joseph decided to follow all of their dreams and someday own a home in Santa Fe. Eileen passed away in 2010, but her spirit lives on in many peoples lives. Every visit to Santa Fe involves memories and celebrations of Eileen. As Tracy and Joseph made plans to purchase their first home in Santa Fe, they both wanted a name for their casita that would be perfect. Tracy considered names and Joseph wanted to share in that privilege. Over breakfast in Dallas, Joseph suggested the perfect name for the casita. Welcome to Casita Eileen.

Why Tracy Fulton and Joseph Mahoney chose Santa Fe

We felt this location provided the best of both worlds--tranquility, nature and the feeling of 'getting away from it all', yet close enough to town for the activity, fun and culture that Santa Fe offers. The sunrises, sunsets and stars are amazing in this serene location.

What makes this townhome unique

Swimming daily throughout the summer! Hiking right outside the door! Enjoying sunset views 50 steps up the side of the hill! Enjoying central a/c when the weather gets too hot! Having Wifi in the house to stay connected to work and friends. The master bedroom has its own patio . We provide each guest with a complimentary bottle of Red Wine as a part of the Casita Eileen tradition. We offer Teacher, Military and First Responder discounts. Just mention this during booking.

Delightful !!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of July 2017 at Casita Eileen. It was a wonderful experience and we hope to return next summer. We were glad that we decided not to stay in town because Casita Eileen is in a a beautiful, peaceful setting with hiking trails literally steps from the door. This was important to us since our dogs were with us and they loved hiking with us each morning. The condo is beautifully decorated and full of interesting art. The beds were comfortable and made up with nice linens. We found everything we needed in the kitchen to cook, but our favorite restaurant is only 5 minutes away. It only takes 10 minutes to drive to the Plaza. Our hosts were easy to work with, quick to respond to our needs and very nice! I would recommend this condo to everyone!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice comments. I am glad that you all enjoyed your stay. A few weeks away from the Houston heat will do a body good!! I am so glad that you found our Casita comfortable. Our goal is to create a peaceful and relaxing environment for all of our guests. The hills are a great addition to the property. We hope to see you next year.

Wonderful gem in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful location and beautiful place to stay! This condo is top notch with its fully stocked kitchen and amenities. Bed in master was heavenly. It was very quiet and peaceful and watching the hummingbirds while enjoying a glass of wine was a great way to relax after a long hike.

Beautifully maintained casita in Pueblo Encantado, near Santa Fe opera

  • 5 of 5

Lovely two-bedroom casita in Pueblo Encantado, in the Tesuque Hills, north of the Santa Fe Plaza, and across the road from the Four Seasons Hotel. It is extremely well-maintained and equipped, and a short drive to the Santa Fe Opera. Owners are very helpful, reliable, and accessible.

Absolutely beautiful, well thought out and supplied home. We had everything we needed for a wonderful vacation. The property itself as well as the pool and surrounding area is very well maintained, clean. The owners are very conscientious, we had a little blip when we arrived, I called and everything was resolved in minutes. We loved everything from the beautiful art, master bedroom shower, complimentary bottle of wine to the supplied list of places to shop, eat and visit!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. The "blip" just about gave me a nervous breakdown, but I am so blessed to have great friends as a backup. I am glad that everything worked out for your family. I trust that you had a safe drive home. Please come back again.

Beautiful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights and absolutely loved it. The art and decor are lovely and the kitchen is well stocked. The private patios were perfect for morning coffee. The location is off the beaten path but getting to all the sites was easy. We swam while there. The beds are very comfortable. The owners were super responsive and thought of everything in this house. We want to come back! I totally recommend this property.
