A true Santa Fe foothills delight

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we were looking for; a true adobe casa outside the hubbub of Santa Fe yet close enough to enjoy all the amenities there of

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this rental. The house is beautiful and Francis was quick to answer any questions. The drive to the house had amazing views. And a short drive into town. We would rent again.

Casa De La Vaca

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at Casa De La Vaca. This was our first visit to the SW and staying at a SW constructed and appointed house gave us a more authentic experience than being cooped-up in a hotel room. The house was easy to find, convenient to Santa Fe, clean and well appointed. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. Francis was responsive to our inquiries and we will recommend Casa De La Vaca to friends and family.

Authentic, charming, comfortable home in the Santa Fe hills 💗

  • 5 of 5

Though I was only to stay for 48 short hours in this amazing abode I look forward to one day returning to its charms. Beautifully decorated, modern comfort in an old world charm. The property is off the beaten path and though the unit is shared (duplex) I never heard the neighboring property. (It was occupied!) Other than the shared driveway it is as private as anyone could dream with an outdoor space that matches the interior in comfort and charm. Our host, Francis left behind many valuable resources to ensure a fun visit and was always easy to reach and quick to respond to my questions. Santa Fe was AMAZING and just a short drive. I can’t wait to come back one day to explore; and Casa de Vaca will be my first choice for lodging.
