Our 100 year old historic one bedroom adobe casita has been newly renovated, but retains its Santa Fe charm! We're located in a quiet neighborhood but it's right downtown in the Railyard district, an easy walk to the farmers' market and the Santa Fe plaza.
This historic casita has solid adobe walls, wall nichos and other traditional New Mexico features. But 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.
There is a sunny patio area with chairs and a table, for morning coffee or simply soaking up our New Mexico sun.
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.
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.
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.
Fall and winter are great times to visit Santa Fe. It's intensely sunny most days, but as winter comes on the temperature gets cooler and crisper, great for walking and hiking. And in December and January there's great downhill and cross-country skiing within a half hour of here.

A quiet place, no road noise, that was important to me. Also so clean and comfy, bright and sunny and my favorite part-close enough to walk to the plaza and even closer to the beautiful Saturday morning Santa Fe farmers market!! Would definitely stay here again.
Quiet neighborhood, easy walk to plaza area, newly redone in tasteful style with nice art. Very roomy. Esther greeted us and made sure we had everything we needed. Kind and friendly. We make an annual trip through Santa Fe and expect to stay with Esther again.
The casita looked small from the outside, but is in fact quite spacious, and accommodating. It has a good simple easy kitchen, and room to relax. Located in a quiet street, but near the funky rail line neighbourhood and Wholefoods supermarket, the casita is easy walking distance to everything. Our hosts, Esther and Emile are friendly, intelligent and accommodating - real flowers in a vase, fresh fruit and a feather down duvet light as air - we strongly recommend it!
We had a relaxing, rejuvenating stay in Santa Fe at Esther's sweet casita. We met Esther when we first arrived in the early evening. She was warm and welcoming. My friend and I travel to Santa Fe regularly for short getaways but this was our first stay at airbnb. We were both impressed with the ease of booking a spot online, clear communication between host and lodger via text/email, and the personal touches by Esther (we did not meet Emile this trip). The casita was clean, tidy, warm, quiet, and cozy. We had everything we needed in the kitchen, bathroom (great shower), and living room. The location is ideal, close to everything by walking or driving. Thank you Esther, for a perfect getaway.
Esther's casita was WONDERFUL. It was close to the Railyard (we walked to the Farmers Market on Saturday) and perfectly cozy. The heater worked well, and we stayed warm. The bed and pull-out sofa were comfortable, everything was clean, and there was plenty of hot water. My children loved meeting Esther (my daughter calls her "that nice Esther lady") and feeding her chickens. We miss our little Santa Fe home already!
The best part of our stay in the magical Santa Fe was meeting Esther and Emile. I felt as if we'd reunited with old friends. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer and get to know those lovely people better. The casita was pleasant and the location was wonderful, but those two friendly, warm and intelligent people were the highlight of our Santa Fe experience.
We had a great time at Esther's clean and artfully decorated casita in Santa Fe. The casita had everything one would need, including plastic containers perfect for making a picnic lunch!! She gave us excellent advice for our day trip to Ojo Caliente -- a must-do for any spa or mineral water buff!! Will definitely visit her again -- probably in warmer weather, though!!! :)
Esther's casita was in the perfect location to explore Santa Fe. We walked to most places in town and it was a short car ride up to Ski Santa Fe and a good base for exploring the greater Santa Fe area. The casita itself was warm, cozy, bright and comfortable. It was nice having a full kitchen and we'll equipped bathroom. It really was the perfect place to stay in Santa Fe. Highly recommend!
We had a great stay at Esther's casita. It was super clean, great linens and towels and a very comfy bed. I must say that we did not spend a great deal of time at her place as it was so convenient to the plaza that we were out and about exploring while there. When in Santa Fe, we would definitely love to stay at her place again. Many thanks.
Esther and Emile were great hosts! They were very accommodating to our late arrival and busy day schedule. Esther told us about many places to see and places to eat, and provided great products in the casita. The casita itself was perfect! Beautiful, warm, and spacious for 2 people. I did come across a couple of spiders but I think that's just a Santa Fe thing (and being from NY, those kinds of bugs creep me out). There's a TJs, Wholefoods, and Walgreens really close by so we were able to buy some groceries for breakfast. The farmer's market/rail yard and many good restaurants are also super close. Overall, we had a great time in Santa Fe and enjoyed our time in the casita. We'd definitely stay here again!
