Casa Artista - This beautiful artist's home is now available for guests.
Casa Artista is a wonderful and peaceful place for visitors or guests of Santa Fe residents to spend a time. The sunsets are beyond description, and the little morning coffee/evening wine setting on the back patio is an inviting place to listen to the birds, watch the hummers and experience the sights and smells of the high desert. It's bound to be a people-pleaser for those who want more tranquility than the City Different can offer. And, it's under-priced for all that it is--sweet and cozy.
Stunning but simple Santa Fe style throughout, and everything you need for comfort and cooking, and relaxing. Fully equipped kitchen even has a slow cooker and waffle maker.
Casa Artista sits on an acre and a half on one of Eldorado's greenbelts, providing quiet communing with Nature and wildlife sitings from a large patio with dining tables and shade trees. Protected night sky star gazing is a special treat. At this altitude, you are truly up among the stars.
You would think you were away from it all, but only a mile away is the Eldorado village commercial area with a great market, restaurants, wine bar, craft beer tasting room, and varied shopping activities.
And only 15 minutes away is the bustling Santa Fe Plaza area where the property owner has a lovely gallery which provides some of the amazing artwork in Casa Artista.
Because so many folks miss this info in house rules, Casa Artista is not suitable for children under 12 and we cannot make exceptions. This house is wonderful for grown-ups, but full of fragile artwork, and lots of ways for little kids to hurt themselves by just running around as normal, healthy kids do.
MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY: 6 . Sorry, but we are unable to make exceptions.
Children must be 12 years or older
No Smoking Inside or Outside. (Would present a fire danger to the greenbelt area.)
Our home can sleep six. The master suite has a queen bed, flat screen TV, comfy rocking chair, walk-in shower, and circular soaking tub. Guest room one has a queen bed and reading area, and Guest Room 2 has two twin beds and a rocking chair.
We DO NOT have extra sleeping space like pull-out sofas, futons, cots, etc. and do not allow sleeping bags to accommodate extra guests.
The high-ceilinged central living area (kitchen, dining, living room) divides the master suite from the guest wing. The two guest rooms are served by a guest bath with walk-in shower.
All the beds have thick memory foam mattress toppers for ultimate comfort, and every window in the house has a wonderful view.
With 1300 square feet of living space, a large patio in back, and a large, walled courtyard in front (with a covered swing), Casa Artista offers plenty of living space without being too large.
Ideal for a romantic getaway, a girlfriends' weekend, a family vacation with older children, or two couples traveling together, but also perfectly sized for a single vacationer to feel comfortable. Our home is NOT suitable for children under 12.
