Just a short walk to the plaza from this charming casita. Private driveway, private walled courtyard, kiva fireplace, full bath with tub and shower, beautiful, sunny adobe in Historic district, walking distance to railyard, Plaza, dining, museums and shopping. Wifi and tv. Fully equipped kitchen. Walk to the Santa Fe Railrunner. 10 minutes to the opera house.
Please, no smoking inside the house. Cocktails with friends, fine. But no loud parties. Driveway accommodates only one vehicle. Continental breakfast offered. Keep doors locked when you leave. All vehicles should be locked at night.
Betty was there to meet us when we arrived in the evening. She was friendly and helpful, but gave us our space. The studio is so charming and comfortable. There is a small kitchen with limited dishes. The fireplace was wonderful and the bed was comfortable. The bed is a double and the shower head is pretty short (though great hot water), but neither of those bothered us since we're not tall people. I would definitely stay here again!
Staying with Betty is like staying with friends - but private! My husband and I enjoyed a week in Feb. 2015 in Santa Fe and staying here was a big part of what made the whole trip such a success. We loved the easy (~10 minutes), scenic, and safe walk into the center of town. The apartment was clean, warm, and cozy and we received a full basket of tea, coffee, and snacks upon arrival. There were plenty of blankets and towels throughout the house and even some soaps and shampoos and things in the shower. All of the furniture was very comfortable and the house gets great sunlight in the mornings, which was a lovely way to wake up. We had all the space and amenities we needed. The kitchen appliances are all in great condition. (FYI - the coffee maker is a Keurig, so you could easily bring your own beverage pods.) Everything was just as described.
Betty is also a real gem. It was very easy to keep in contact with her and she was flexible about what time we arrived and left. It truly did feel like staying at a friend's house, but we had complete privacy and autonomy the entire week. It was nice to know Betty was right next door and available if we needed her. We loved our stay and recommend this apartment very highly! Hopefully we will be back next year and will be able to stay with Betty again!
Betty's adobe apartment is the perfect retreat. It is walking distance to almost everything in Santa Fe, especially the terrific farmer's market, shops, museums and restaurants. It's a great space for a couple. Just keep in mind it's a full-size bed and the shower water pressure isn't the strongest, but more than adequate. Betty was also kind enough to welcome us with a tour and Valentine's Day candies! Again, what a perfect location to explore Santa Fe!
Betty was a great host. The Adobe studio is charming as described and in a great location for walking into Santa Fe. It also is well stocked with cooking utensils etc in case you wish stay in and eat. We really enjoyed our short but comfortable stay - Thanks so much Betty!
Great location with an easy walk to train depot, square, and Santa Fe hotspots. Betty had everything ready for us and a delightful welcome. Apartment is well appointed for a home-away visit. Bed is comfortable but on the small end and heater can be bit noisy when cycling on and off.
Betty's house is so pretty!
She was very kindly and nice :)
Everything's so good !
My boyfriend and I LOVED Betty's place. She was wonderfully flexible too! We drove in on a Friday night from OKC and ran late due to construction but she still stayed up to meet us and get us settled. She gave a wonderful restaurant recommendation and had a little food waiting for us. Besides how pleasant and helpful Betty was, the actual space was lovely! We enjoyed the cozy studio, with view of the fireplace from bed. It was also very close to all of the shops and restaurants in the Plaza we went to, and we could have walked to them if we hadn't been such sissies. We fully plan on staying here for all of our future weekend trips to Santa Fe!
We love living here in Santa Fe and love sharing our home with travelers from all over the world because our passion is to travel to experience different cultures. We also love animals. I have two very well behaved little dogs. We are also involved in supporting animal rescue. I enjoy meeting other people and sharing my garden. I find working in the garden very rewarding. Hope you will visit me. My friends call me Carley.
