There are 3 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 in each instance. Helmets provided. 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 (8-9, 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 sit at the bar 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 is a bar 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.

The Compound

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.

Cafe Artiste

On Canyon rd, Nearly to Paseo de Peralta--about one mile from the Casita.

Friendly, small, coffee and pastries, crepes? …

Downtown Subscription

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 coffee shop 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.

Guest access

You have access to the shared patio with wrought iron table set, the driveway, and the outside patio with bench (has a view onto the park).

Besos is a delightful little adobe casita, very relaxing, clean and well equipped for a week in beautiful Santa Fe. It has a lovely small courtyard, shared with the two other small casitas, for sitting outside in the shade of small trees, which I believe are called Spanish walnuts. Besides being in walking distance to the galleries on Canyon Road and the historic Plaza, the casita has lots of character and helps you to feel like you are part of the Santa Fe culture. Lisa and Kristiania were both very helpful in getting us settled, and everything was as described. We will definitely want to return to Besos!

The casita was very authentic and sweet! The courtyard is beautiful and wonderful for your morning coffee. Bed was comfortable and it was peaceful at night. It's in the perfect location and super close to the art district and main plaza. There are bikes you can use to go art gallery hopping which was super fun! The kitchen is well equipped to cook if you feel inclined and there are a few good restaurants walking distance as well. There is a super cute tea house near by which is great for breakfast. Lisa's recommendations were wonderful, we especially loved The 10,000 Waves Spa. Lisa was a wonderful host and had great communication and even accommodated us with a later check out time. Highly recommend!

Besos was the perfect spot for me and my friends to stay while visiting Santa Fe. It was a great location in walking distance to galleries and restaurants. Everything was clean and check in was easy!

Besos is a terrific location and excellent value. Being just beyond the end of the commercial area of Canyon Rd is ideal. If you like walking it is perfect. Fifteen minutes down Canyon or Alameda to the Plaza area, slightly downhill. If you prefer driving the parking at the unit gives you easy access in an otherwise crowded area for cars. Besos itself is a very comfortable part of a three unit compound behind adobe walls. It is quiet with a shared courtyard where you can relax after being out and about. The unit is a very comfortable 1 bedroom and the two times we have been there it has always been clean and stocked with the necessities of daily living. We love Santa Fe and Taos and could not ask for a better place to call home for the days we are there than Besos.

Thank you Lisa! Your home is beautiful and exactly what the doctor ordered :) The location is perfect. We walked everywhere we wanted to go. We were woken by birds chirping every day. Very pet friendly with a park right across the street and a path along a creek.

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.
