Dear Guests,
Santa Fe is now 75% open outside and inside. Restaurants, museums and retail shops are ready for your visit. We are taking extra care to disinfect frequently touched surfaces and to wear protective equipment during cleaning. We require a 24hr period of vacancy before and after each guest. Additionally, our team is certified in Covid Safe Practices by the state of NM. Thank you and enjoy your stay!

The space
The Colorful Casita is a large one-bedroom with A/C, ample closet space, gas fireplace, cable TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime & Wi-Fi. There's a full bath with tub & shower + W/D. A well stocked kitchen, dining area + a workspace. Parking is off-street & gated.
Space: 750 sq ft.

Enjoy a relaxing, spa-like experience in our colorful casita with an outdoor cedar sauna, claw foot tub and sun-drenched patio. Organic bath products, a radiant-heat floor, and infrared heat lamps will enhance your bathing experience. Stroll through our wildflower and vegetable gardens and watch birds bathe in the fountain. Easily walk (12min) to the downtown plaza for delicious restaurants, festive outdoor markets, artisan shopping, world-class museums and galleries.

NOTE: We use cleaning products like Seventh Generation disinfecting cleaners, wipes and sprays with CleanWell® INSIDE which can be used against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19, on hard, nonporous surfaces.

Guest access
Guests can do self check-in with the lockbox, which is sanitized with each guest.
Check-in instructions will be provided prior to arrival. We do live on the property, in the main house and will be available to answer your questions and offer recommendations.
We have a guidebook inside the casita that will answer most of your questions. Our check-in time is 4:00p and after. The parking is off-street and gated right next to the casita or, if you prefer, park on the street in front of the main house.

Other things to note
We use cleaning products like Seventh Generation disinfecting cleaners, wipes and sprays with CleanWell® INSIDE which can be used against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19, on hard, nonporous surfaces.

The shower sits inside the clawfoot tub, which you have to climb in and out of to use. We have a safety bar, a safety mat and a large stable step, to assist you. Please consider if you have any physical limitations that would make using the shower/tub difficult.

Our driveway is wide enough to accommodate a large SUV or truck, however the gated opening is slightly narrowed. Parking on the street in front of the main house is ample, free and also an option.

If you experience altitude sickness please consult your hosts for suggestions and seek medical attention if in doubt.

Please be conscious of your water usage, Santa Fe is a high mountain desert. Thank you.

We have 7 cats that are indoor/outdoor who mostly keep to themselves, but Sammy, the big orange cat, enjoys meeting new people. We have a strict policy of NOT allowing the cats inside the casita so those with cat allergies can relax.

Hi, I'm Danica and am excited to share my Colorful Casita with you. I live on the property in the main house with my seven wonderful cats, Meowser, Sammy, Gracie, Pip, Fluff, Ricky and Bootsy. I grew up in Santa Fe and moved away after college to Seattle, WA. I lived there for 15 years until 2012, when I decided to move to Austin, TX, for a few years.. Eventually, I made my way back to Santa Fe where I've enjoyed re-discovering the beauty and adventures that Santa Fe has to offer. I love to garden and spend time in nature. I am an avid birder and enjoy a simple farm to table meal. I am dedicated to living a sustainable lifestyle and will continue to make eco-friendly upgrades to the property. I am a pesticide free and biodegradable household. Come relax and enjoy in the clean air of Santa Fe! I look forward to meeting you.
