Our 100 year old historic one bedroom adobe casita has been newly renovated, but retains its Santa Fe charm! We're in a quiet neighborhood in the heart of the Railyard district, an easy walk to the farmers' market and the Santa Fe plaza.

The Space

This historic casita has solid adobe walls, wall nichos and other traditional New Mexico features. It has been renovated to let in plenty of light, so it feels spacious and bright. Wisteria foliage shades the bedroom window and you'll wake up to the sound of birdsong in the morning.

There are hardwood floors throughout; a full kitchen with delicious new granite counters; a brand-new bathroom; and a comfortable living room with sofas to lounge on.

We can easily accommodate 3 people - 2 in the bedroom and one on a futon couch in the living room. The casita is about 600 sq ft in size.

Guest Access

There is a sunny patio area with chairs and a table, for morning coffee or simply soaking up our New Mexico sun.

Interaction with Guests

We live right next door to the casita, so look forward to meeting you and getting to know you a little! We can offer help in terms of outings, food, logistics, whatever you want. We do both work full-time, and have full, busy lives, but we love to visit with our guests as much as we are able.

The Neighborhood

This is the best neighborhood in Santa Fe! Quiet residential neighborhood but right in the middle of everything. I walk to the farmers' market every week, and walk to shops, restaurants, cafes, museums, and the plaza for the myriad events taking place in Santa Fe.

Getting around

There is easy access to several city bus lines, and the Railrunner commuter train station is 8 minutes walk from here. The airport shuttle also stops at the train station. To get out of town you do need a car, but we're located very near the main thoroughfare, so it's easy to hit the road. We have one off-street parking space.

Other Things to Note

This is a great space for a family with a small child. The bedroom doesn't share a wall with anyone else, and there's lots of room for crawling and toddling. The separate living room means that parents don't have to tiptoe around once baby is asleep!

Spring is a good time to visit Santa Fe. It's intensely sunny most days, but still cool; great weather for walking and hiking. May and June are usually the warmest and driest months - but since we're at 7,000 feet, it's rarely all that hot here!

  • Fantastic! We loved our stay in this cute little apartment. It was so convenient to get to downtown and the Farmer's Market, which we loved! Also, everything was very clean and comfortable. Esther provided us with a lot of little extras, like shampoo, tea and candies, that helped us feel right at home. We would stay here again!

  • This is a lovely place to stay in Santa Fe. It's close to the Railyard, within walking distance of the Plaza and many of the things we wanted to do around town. A very clean and light space, it was just right for two people, but could easily have accommodated another person. There was coffee, tea, fruit and even some chocolate almonds for us on our arrival. We liked sitting outside for our morning coffee. And appreciated the warm welcome extended to us when we arrived. We will recommend this place to friends who want to visit Santa Fe.

  • Our casita was better then we expected! It was sparkling clean and roomy and located within walking distance to the Railyard Park and convenient to downtown and the plaza. Esther was out of town but Lisa handled the hosting and she was absolutely wonderful. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it for others.

  • What a wonderful, restful stay! Thank you. Your place was charming and just the right size for two of us. We loved being out of the "downtown" hustle-bustle and in a quite neighborhood where we could leave the windows open and enjoy the fresh air! Having access to a well equipped kitchen was great too! I gave us the option of breakfast in! Your place was spotless! Love that! Our first time to use airbnb! We'll be back! Thanks for breaking us in Ester!

  • Esther and Emile were wonderful hosts. They helped us to feel comfortable in our surroundings and gave us great suggestions for planning our stay. The casita is adorable, very clean and well done. It was very warm while were there and not having air conditioning was a little difficult but not unmanageable. The location was very nice as well.

  • The casita was great and exactly as it was pictured: cute, clean, and charming. The thing I loved about it the most was that it was within walking distance of everything I wanted to see in Santa Fe. Esther even stopped by to visit with me and we had a very nice conversation. If I go back to Santa Fe I will definitely stay here again.

  • Our host was very friendly and helpful. We liked that she lived next door, so was nearby if we ever needed anything. We appreciated her tips about some of the local restaurants and hiking trails. The casita was bright, spacious and clean, and had all the comforts we needed. We liked that it was within walking distance to the historical central plaza and Canyon Road, yet it was located on a wonderfully quiet street, with no traffic noise at all, just the sound of birds chirping!

  • We loved our stay at the casita. It was very new inside with everything you could need. We stayed for 5 days and it was a great to have some space to move about and relax after weeks of travelling. We could have cooked but there were so many good eating places within walking distance we didn't get around to it. Esther made arrival easy and made sure we had all that we needed. She had places to eat marked on her guest book and we recommed trying them. A very clean and convenient place to stay in Santa Fe.

  • Esther and her husband Emile were consummate hosts, and their casita was an absolutely fabulous place to spend some time! The space is ideal for 1-3 people, with a separate bedroom, a well-appointed bathroom, and a delightfully open kitchen and living space. The location is also excellent, easily within walking distance of the Railyard and the fantastic Farmers Market, and quite close to the Plaza as well. Esther and Emile were happy to share their knowledge of the area, and were even so kind as to share some fresh greens from their garden and eggs from the chickens they raise in their backyard. Highly recommended!
