There are two trek bicycles for use during the months between May and NOvember. , 2013. They are shared between the guests in Studio C. While I do my best to see that they are in working order, I cannot promise that it would always be so.. Also, guests must sign a waiver before riding.
Walk to The Teahouse for breakfast, El Farol for entertainment, Geronimo for a special night out. Be inspired by a plethora of art galleries. Hiking trails, Audubon, Dale Ball trails are very near. The Alameda river trail is just across the park.
Public transit is very close. Santa Fe Pick Up is located near the Tea House. It will take you to all the sites in Santa Fe, including the Railyard where you can go to the spectacular Santa Fe Farmer's Market on Tuesdays and Saturdays. From there, you may also catch the Railrunner, the train that will take you South to Albuquerque and just beyond. The train is comfortable, and has wifi most of the way.

Dream Canyon Road Casita -- What's within walking distance
The Teahouse (8-7, all week)
One block west on Canyon Rd. Great place for breakfast and for lunch. Enjoy your meal or tea on their pebble stone patio in the sunshine. The baked goods are usually very good. I also recommend the salads, one is a healthy meal in itself. The coffee drinks are a little better than average. Casual atmosphere, great magazine selection for design and fashion. They have the NY Times. New management as of late 2012--cleaner and better service than before.
El Farol (website hidden)
Less than two blocks west on Canyon Rd. .
Check out their entertainment line-up, everything from salsa night, to blues bands, to trivia night (Monday). They have a tapas (small spanish plates) menu, as well as a dinner menu. A place to (email hidden) and get to know some people, visitors and residents alike
A little further down Canyon, well into the gallery area, is a fine dining restaurant. Don't be intimidated, go inside and check out the inner bar room. The friendly bartender will make you feel at home. There (email hidden) menu. For a more formal evening, the restaurant has excellent service and top-notch food and wine. The building is from the 1700's. Recommended.
This is further by about two more blocks. I ate here once, and it was fine, but for the price and the atmosphere, the quality of the food-- I prefer Geronimo's.
On Canyon rd, Nearly to Paseo de Peralta--about one mile from the Casita.
Friendly, small, coffee and pastries, crepes? …
Corner of Garcia St and Acequia Madre. Nice coffee shop with loads of magazines to peruse. Patio out back and in the front. The espresso drinks are decent. Lots of local people. It's a very nice walk: Go directly behind the casita onto Acequia Madre, and walk west. One of the most charming walks in Santa Fe! Keep going about one mile, passing an elementary school, until you see Garcia St. The coffeeshop is on the corner in a strip with a nice book store, photography gallery (Photo-eye). Pick up the local paper out front.
Kakawa Chocolate House.
Going past Downtown Subscription, cross Paseo de Peralta, to this darling chocolate house with hand crafted chocolate creations.
The easiest trail is right across the street! Just go through Patrick Smith Park and the other side is Santa Fe River, which runs along East Alameda St. It follows the river (a creek-size river), more or less, all the way across town, to West Alameda St. and the Plaza area, and beyond. Recommended for a partial walk, shop, eat, day.
Dale Ball Trails
Drive to this trailhead area by going East on Canyon, turn RT , then quickly left at the Stop sign. Now you are on Upper Canyon Rd. Follow this road about one mile and you will see a small parking area on the left.
Historic homes and churches all around. The Park across the way is a lush, green treasure with cottonwoods and a small river. Of course, galleries! Lots of art to explore and inspire. Quiet and yet close to restaurants and art events.
A car is recommended, however there are bicycles provided and there are many restaurants and shops within just a few minute's walk. The Plaza is one gorgeous mile away, down Canyon Rd, and across Paseo de Peralta.
PARKING FOR BESOS IS IN THE CENTER OF THE DRIVEWAY. THERE IS ROOM FOR 3 CARS FOR THE THREE CASITAS IN THIS COMPLEX. No smoking in house and in the central courtyard. Smoking is allowed only at the courtyard off the driveway to the left of Studio C. Quiet time after 10 p.m. No parties or gatherings. Check in time is 4 pm, check out is at 11 am. I can occasionally accept requests for different times.
Friendly and helpful, I will do my best to be sure you are comfortable during your stay at Pu'ulena House on the Big Island of Hawaii, or at Canyon Road in Santa Fe. I split my time between them, and Mexico. I use airbnb often when i travel and can relate to the needs of a traveler. While in Hawaii I enjoy swimming in tide pools and in the open ocean. Painting and drawing the human figure is another passion. I designed, built and decorated Pu'ulena House.
