About Viola Montoya

The owner was born and raised in Santa Fe with a family history in Santa Fe that goes back many generations. In fact recently she learned of her ancestry from the National Geographic Genome project that in fact her bloodline goes back 15,000 -20.000 years in The Americas, making her an "Aboriginal American"!

She earned a degree at the University of Art and Design. and worked at The famous Munson Gallery, one of the most beautiful galleries in Santa Fe. Munson Gallery was the second oldest gallery in the country, established in New Haven, CT in 1860. The owner at the time was Larry Munson. Under Larry's guidance Viola directed the gallery for over 15 years showcasing some of the country's most important artists before becoming an Art Appraiser. She has served on many local Boards including the City Arts Community Gallery at Convention Center. She has curated many shows in conjunction with the local Museum of Fine Arts and for many local exhibitions including Spanish Market and the State Fair Art Exhibitions. She has lectured at several places throughout Santa Fe including the famous Georgia O'Keefe Museum.

She takes pride in her little gem, Casa Montoya and has done much of the work herself to make Casa Montoya the tasteful and charming property that is has become. Viola also takes pride in having earned a degree in mechanics and loves keeping the property functioning efficiently, having attended to many details of the renovation herself. She and her husband own a shop on the plaza called Native Jackets, featuring museum quality Native American textiles, pottery and baskets. As the name implies, they also sell jackets made from Pendleton blankets as well as their own line of blankets designed by the couple.

Viola Montoya purchased this house in 1985

Why Viola Montoya chose Santa Fe

As soon as I saw this property I was struck by one little detail, the brick archway going from the kitchen to the dining room. While keeping the structural and historical integrity of the house, Viola has added some square footage with the addition of an upstairs private suite.

What makes this house unique

One of the unique benefits of staying at Casa Montoya is access into Viola's vast list of resources. With Viola's unique history and love of Santa Fe, she is very qualified and happy to serve as a personal and knowledgeable concierge at your convenience. She is always only a phone call away.

We stayed here for 5 months while working in Santa Fe. Great, safe location. Home was impeccably furnished & the landscape was beautiful. Even the smallest issues were immediately handled by the owner. Would definitely stay there again if we were back in Santa Fe

Very accommodating!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is very tastefully decorated in Santa Fe fashion. it has a family atmosphere with several areas for quiet space. Kitchen is fully equipped and linens are first class. Patios would be fantastic in warm weather. It was a perfect place for us to stay as we gathered with our Santa Fe families to celebrate our 55th wedding anniversary.
