The Space

Darling one bedroom Casita on Canyon near Monsignor Patrick Smith Park with 2 gas fireplaces, very ample and equipped kitchen, saltillo tile floors, spanish tile counters/wood cabinets. Bedroom has New, natural latex, queen size bed, High thread-count Kirkland sheets, down comforter/pillows.

Cute french-style windows. Viga ceilings with 4 skylights throughout. Stacking washer/dryer. Off-street parking. Courtyard with fruit trees and wrought-iron furniture. Couch folds out to a full size bed. Quiet, comfortable, with that special Santa Fe charm. Pet-friendly! ( $20. pet cleaning fee required)

Free Internet--and it's fast (approx. 3Mb)

Cable TV on 32" Samsung.

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.

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 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.

  • nice host to meet ,just to short.....the place is really nice and although right in a busy rd very quiet.....

  • Our host, Lisa Bartelletti, was friendly, helpful, organized and kind. She had detailed typed instructions for operating the TV, letting us know she had bicycles we could use, how to contact her if we had questions, etc. The casita was neat, clean, well stocked and charming. We totally relaxed in this environment and want to return there next year. The casita happened to be on the street in Santa Fe that is well known as an art mecca so we enjoyed walking around that street numerous times. Obviously, it's location was fantastic not only for the artwork, but because it was also convenient to downtown, the plaza and a variety of restaurants. We highly recommend this casita.

  • Just about perfect. Everything looks like the pictures. Easy key pickup/dropoff. Definitely recommend. Don't count 100% on the bikes (as it says in the description), but even without, a relatively short walk to the plaza. And it's along a nice creek, so no complaints.

    Response from Lisa:

    Glad you enjoyed your stay, even though one of the bikes was in the repair shop. Thanks and hope to see you again. Lisa

  • Experience with Lisa was great; she was super responsive to issues that came up and took care of things immediately. Casita was comfortable and great location!

    June 2014
  • The cottage was very charming and nicely decorated. We appreciated the patio we shared with Lisa and guests in the other cottage. Good location, you can walk or shuttle to the plaza and canyon road is fun. We will try to stay with Lisa again when we return to Santa Fe.

  • Canyon road is a small neighborhood, so even though this house is at the end of canyon road, it is very convenient! I stayed with my mom for a long weekend, and we had a great time.

    The house is very comfortable, and had everything we needed, including two granola bars that came in handy on our outings. Everything worked, and it felt clean and will taken care of.

    Lisa was very nice, and mostly left us alone. The neighbor rental turned over three times while we we there, and all three couples were very nice.

    This is a great, economical rental in Santa Fe.

  • Lisa was extremely nice and helpful and well prepared. Our casita was fantastic for the cost. It was also beautiful and well maintained. It's right on Canyon Row and a very doable walk downtown or extremely short car ride. I searched listings hard for our trip and was very happy with our experience.

    May 2014
  • We stayed at Lisa'a beautiful and charming casita for three nights during an April trip to New Mexico. The casita is rather roomy and it really felt like home for the time we were in Santa Fe. We were comfortable cooking, lounging, and sleeping. The casita is located off Canyon Road, which is the epicenter of the Santa Fe art galleries. We appreciated that it was located a healthy walk away from the center of town because it encouraged us to explore more neighborhoods. The casita is as well-decorated and fully stocked as the photographs indicate. We had a wonderful time staying here and would recommend it without hesitation to anyone passing through Santa Fe and looking for a perfect home base.

    April 2014
  • Amazing, wonderful experience at Besos on Canyon Road. Host was gracious and accommodating - apartment was super comfortable and clean. Would highly recommend to any and all!

    April 2014
  • Lisa's guest house was beautiful and comfortable, great distance from Santa Fe for a walk after dinner. Lisa and her cute dog were wonderful hosts!

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 the two places. My creative expression is seen in all the spaces listed. I use airbnb often when i travel (Los Angeles, San Miguel de Allende, Tucson,...) 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 and hope to try my hand at it once more in this lifetime! In Hawaii, I served on the board of Kalapana Sea View Estates for several years and was instrumental in the development of the neighborhood park, pavilion and tree plantings. I love life and the people in it.
