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.
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.
The Besos casita is cozy and bright with skylights in every room. The bedroom is very comfortable and the gas fireplace kept it warm. This location is in a quiet neighborhood that is close to restaurants, coffee shops, and art galleries.
We found snacks and wine in the kitchen which made us feel very welcome. I would have loved to spend more time in the courtyard, but our 2 night stay was blessed with scattered showers! Our host even provided an umbrella by the front door which helped keep us dry while we explored Santa Fe.
Thank you Lisa for sharing your home on airbnb!
Lisa's place is a really cute bungalow-type space in the typical Santa Fe style, it's clean and well-equipped. We did not meet her, but she was very accommodating and gave clear communication for getting in and finding our way around inside. The location is perfect for strolls on Canyon Road and an easy walk into Santa Fe's historic district. We would stay here again and recommend it to other Airbnb travelers.
Lisa was super friendly and responsive. What a great place to stay in Santa Fe!
This Besos casita was so perfect! It is exactly like the images shown! My husband and I visited Santa Fe for a little get-away. We were not familiar at all with Santa Fe and this little casita is located in the most perfect part of town. We walked almost everywhere to local eateries and shops. Lisa was so easy to communicate with and went above and beyond to accommodate our needs! Highly recommend!!!!
The casita was exactly as shown on the website - cute, clean and a relaxing home from home. I stayed there with my 7 y/o daughter and wanted a place within walking distance to the galleries, but also a home base where we could cook our own food.
Lisa's apartment was the perfect place to come back to after exploring Santa Fe, and only a stone's throw from a children's park (bonus!).
Lisa was very responsive in helping me find elusive cooking items and we felt very cared for.
A great end to our New Mexico trip.

About the Host, Lisa
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.
Great outdoor patio, casual atmosphere. Enjoy a healthy salad for lunch, or great pastries (some delicious gluten-free choices as well) with an amazing selection of teas. (2 minute walk).
Historic, longest-running bar in Sf. Live music most nights. Tapas, go(email hidden)bar. Flamenco shows in summer. Tuesday is Salsa dancing!
Fine dining, great service. My favorite bar in town, especially cozy in winter. Check it out, even if you go only to the bar. Historic building. Celebrity-spotting!
Great selection of Arts magazines. Large patios and cafe in a cute neighborhood with okay coffee. Great bicycle or walking destination with a photography gallery and bookstore next door.
Go at just before sunset to view a special site. Please be quiet and respectful of this private, operating monastery.
Daily mediation and workshops.
Closest real market with a fab wine selection, lots of gourmet items and produce. Near the State Capitol (roundhouse) Recently renovated. Closes at 7pm and on Sundays.
Close, small theater with great offerings. Good popcorn. Check their schedule for art openings as well. About a 6 minute drive.
Lectures on Wednesday night. Liberal Arts College based solely on the classics. Music festival on the lawn in summer.
It's just so Santa Fe. Try the interior courtyard restaurant for brunch. The Rooftop bar is the best for sunset with amazing views.
Always something new to see. An historic plaza as in Europe or Latin America. About a 15-20 minute, gently downhill walk, mostly on gorgeous Canyon Rd. walk down, then take a rickshaw home!
Please go here for breakfast or brunch--a must! Expect a line out the door. Highly recommended. Open for lunch and dinner as well.
Creative cocktails, oddly a rarity in Santa Fe. Cool location just off the Plaza in the Hotel St Francis. I love the classy couches and tables on the patio at sunset.
Live shows including comedy and ballet performances. Near the Plaza.
Lovely little museum dedicated to New Mexico's legendary artist.
Extensive trail system. Several trailheads. This is one at end of Upper Canyon Rd.
Listed in the Top ten farmers markets in the nation. Come Saturday morning and revel in the delicious produce, breads, music and more. Highly recommended.
Scientific and creative Think tank (such as Complexity Theory) in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristos.
The best selection in this massive store!
Literally less than a ten minute drive from the Studio. Soak, sauna and explore this incredible Japanese designed spa for a day rate of around $25. Dine at Izanami with it's extensive saké menu.
Get the North Indian Sampler. You won't be disappointed. A bit more of a drive, but when you're craving Indian food it's worth it.
