Guest apartment and studio space

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Stagecoach Dr, Santa Fe, NM 87501, United States

The Space

This guest apartment is located a mile north of the central historic Plaza of Santa Fe, which is filled with unique shops and wonderful restaurants. Two blocks away is Fort Marcy park on the West side of the street, with a running field, exercise equipment and an indoor pool with lanes and classes. On the East side of the street is Artists Road which leads to the Ski Basin area (4.1 miles/9 minutes from our house). During the Fall, it's a lovely drive to see the golden Aspens.

The house is surrounded by an acre of pinon trees. The attached guest apartment is completely private, with individual access apart from the main house (there are outside Flagstone stairs), and guests may come and go as they want. The husband and wife owners are artists--a painter and a fiber artist who also creates Art Books and Jewelry Art. There are 4 1/2 Labrador Retrievers on the property and they are all very friendly and love people... and food!

The apartment itself has been renovated and redecorated, and features:

-a bedroom with a Queen-size bed
-kitchenette with a small refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, stove top, coffee pot, and a sitting area with a Futon that converts into a double bed (with an optional Memory Pad), a writing desk as well as a table that seats four people.
-utility closet with a washer/dryer, iron and ironing board.
-private, bathroom with a shower.

The floor is made of traditional Saltillo tiles.
Comcast Wireless Internet and Cable TV
Fax and copier available on site
TV/VCR/DVD and a CD/Cassette player.
Guests also have the privilege of using the artist-owner's 710-square foot studio for painting, sculpting or other artistic activities. Since the house sits on a hill, the studio's balcony overlooks the town and enjoys the wonderful sunsets.

  • Cheryl was generous in her hospitality and help. The conveniences of the small guest apartment was more than adequate including, microwave, coffee maker, two burners, small refrigerator, dishes, pans etc. The bed was also very comfortable.

  • I rented this cute little apartment with 2 other friends for 3 nights. The location is really perfect if you have a car - far enough from downtown that you get away from the noise, and close enough to be able to get downtown in a matter of minutes.

    My friends took the bedroom and they raved about how comfy the bed was. I stayed in the living room on the futon and thanks to a memory foam pad it was quite comfortable, although it was a little tricky to get on and off because of the wooden arms on the sides.

    As one other traveler reported, the shower IS really tiny, but if you've traveled in Europe, you're used to it!

    The decor is really cute and there are all sorts of artistic details you expect to find in New Mexico. The kitchen and the washer and dryer were a real plus!

    They do have 4 large dogs, but I only saw 2 of them and they were sweet and friendly.

    We had everything we needed to be comfortable and Cheryl was a very friendly host! I'd definitely stay there again!

  • THIS APARTMENT WAS NOT CLEAN!!!! Kitchen was too dirty to prepare food so we ate our meals out. Bathroom was dirty and we had to purchase products to clean the shower before we could use it. Shower is extremely small. There was no space to even turn around. Four large dogs were disruptive to the peace and quiet we had hoped to enjoy while in Santa Fe.

    Response from Cheryl:

    We treat the issues of cleanliness as our top priority. We had scrubbed and cleaned the surfaces of the shower and bathroom as well as the kitchenette. I can only guess that Marla was concerned about the stove top that had burned on stains, but not dirt. I had used oven cleaner on it, but the stains couldn't be removed. Before Marla arrived, a neighbor came over and asked me to take photos to send to one of her friends. I am uploading these photos to airbnb. The size of the shower is 36" x 36". We do say that we have 4 Labs on the property. Our Labs are very friendly, but bark when there are strangers, coyotes or other animals in the area. Most guests find that comforting. I appreciate if there is something in the apartment that needs to be attended to, I am told immediately. I can then take care of it. Marla was here for 4 days and did not let us know that she felt that there were problems. We had no clue until we read her comment.

  • We loved this location as it was close to downtown but it felt very private and secluded.

  • Wonderful hosts and location. Cute and comfortable apartment. I'd come again.

  • Great place to stay. Close to town and quiet. Very comfortable. Cheryl and Bill are great hosts.

    September 2012
  • We really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was comfortable. We loved sitting outside in the shade, looking at a forest of piñon trees, while being only a mile the central plaza. Cheryl and Bill were friendly, accommodating, and great hosts. Would definitely recommend to others.

  • We enjoyed our visit to Santa Fe and staying with Cheryl was an added treat. Her four wonderful dogs and the tour of hers and Bills studios was a bonus. This apartment is very convenient to the city, but private and away from the bustle. For us it was ideal. We would love to stay here on our next visit to Santa Fe.

  • This is a wonderful studio apartment to stay as it is only 1 mile from the Plaza, 15-20 minutes walk, down hill. The place is clean, well furnished, quiet and comfortable. Cheryl is an excellent host because she is kind, considerate and very helpful. She provided many useful info for exploring Santa Fe. Cheryl and her husband are very accomplished artist. If you are interested in painting, glass works, jewelry making, quilting, paper making, ... etc. you will find many inspirations here as they are very creative and generous in sharing their accomplishments.

  • We had a wonderful first mini-vacation in Santa Fe! Cheryl had many helpful suggestions. Had a great visit and Cheryl's accommodations were great.
