Directly across the street from beautiful Monsignor Patrick Smith Park, tall trees and songbirds surround this historical area. It's a one minute walk to the gallery and restaurants that Canyon Road is famous for. Go to the Teahouse Restaurant for breakfast or lunch, dance it up at El Farol, the oldest bar in Santa Fe, or enjoy fine dining at Geronimo's, and walk home!
What's within walking distance:
100+ Art Galleries, of course.
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.
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 is a great 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.
This is further by about two more blocks. I only dined here once and feel that Geronimo's is the better choice for the price range.
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.
Ten Thousand Waves
Only a 6 minute drive (toward the ski area/Hyde Park/Sangre de Cristo's) and so special. Soak and sauna in Japanese traditional style. Then eat at Izanami, a Japanese Pub-style restaurant. Incredibly good.
Access to an inner courtyard with two fruit trees, wrought iron table, chairs, hammock, bicycles. Outer courtyard of of driveway with resin table and chairs., view of Monsignor Patrick Smith Park.
Interaction with Guests
If I am here, I like to say hello and see if it's all to your liking and if there's anything you need. If I'm away, this can be done by text, phone or email. Please understand that this is not an inn, but a place to stay. The unit is supplied with what you need for a few days. If you need more, it is something you will have to purchase.
The neighborhood is a visual feast. Bring your camera. It's slow-paced and full of pueblo architecture. The acequia is especially nice to view in summer and fall.
There is a bus stop only a block away. The plaza is a little over one mile down Canyon rd and then along Alameda st. A car is preferred in the winter months especially.
No smoking, in house and in main courtyard. Smoking is permitted at the white table outside and to left above the driveway. Quiet time after 10 p.m. No parties or gatherings. Parking on FAR LEFT SIDE of driveway ONLY. Check in time is 4 pm, check out is at 11 am. I can occasionally accept requests for different times.
Lisa promptly sent a friendly acceptance and politely answered my telephone call on day of arrival. The casita has charm, is well appointed (except no microwave) and in a great location., only 1/2 block from The Tea House for wonderful coffee, tea, and food. The courtyard is large enough for the both units. It is small but we "cozed" in and the space was fine for us but there is a larger unit. It was 12 degrees during our visit and the heaters were more than adequate.
We had a great stay at Lisa's apartment. The apartment is small, but had everything we needed. Very clean and quiet as well. About a 20 minute walk from the Plaza and there are several restaurants within a few blocks. We had a wonderful time!
The space was as described by the host on the Airbnb site. The location was very convenient to downtown and Canyon Road. As anyone familiar with Canyon Road can attest, it is a truly remarkable area with 100 or so galleries/craft shops/art shops within a matter of blocks. We were quite surprised at being able to stay right on Canyon Road as reasonably as we did. The park across the street was a great accessible public space.
The host and we exchanged a number of emails prior to our arrival, and the information about the area, various opportunities and resources was quite helpful.
I had a lovely time at canyon road studio c. The neighborhood was great, the studio was adorable and close to all sorts of things to do.
I would definitely come stay here again.
Lisa's casita on Canyon Road was great for my trip to Santa Fe. With parking right outside the door it makes it super easy to get in and out. The casita itself is snug and charming. The pictures presented are very accurate to what I found when I walked inside. However, the pictures cannot convey the pleasant scent that greeted me when I entered. Everything was clean and well appointed. There were ample towels and a small but adequate kitchen. I made coffee each morning and kept drinks and leftovers in the small fridge. I actually stayed here for 8 nights and everything worked out very well.
Loved my little adobe house! it was charming and comfortable and, the location on the famous Canyon Road was incredible. Even though I stayed in the chilly but comfortable winter, I could walk almost everywhere I wanted to go but, if I was tired, the Santa Fe Pick Up shuttle bus (free) picked me up and dropped me off about a block from the airbnb house. After calling her on the phone, Lisa also kindly let me alter my reservation at the last moment and stay an extra two nights, arriving earlier than planned. I really appreciated that. There are several restaurants very near on Canyon Road that made getting an early breakfast wonderfully easy and the restaurants are great. I also made my own breakfast in the adobe house in the very adequate small kitchen area. I would so love to stay at Lisa's house again!
It's a small quaint stay at the end of Canon Road. Many restaurants and galleries just a walk away. There is a nice park for your dog accross the street. We booked 2 nights in unit C and had to extend 1 night in a second unit due to our car repair problem. Lisa was quite helpful and flexible in arranging this emergency stay. I hope our car will be good to go this Saturday Morning .. but if it isn't ... I am sure Lisa will continue to be flexible for more emergency stay.
Note .. watch out for falling rocks in the Taos area. Wham Bam No Thank you Mam Rock.

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.
