I am a long-time Santa Fe resident and real estate broker, with an animal rescue organization. Those things, my other jobs, and renting property take up all my time!

This place is great- very close to downtown and comfortable enough to sleep up to two couples.
Janet was great and even came in to check on us!
Thank you! Please come back again.
The rental is definitely true to the description. A great half-duplex that is just a short walk to downtown Santa Fe but also next to 84 so that you can get in and out of town easily. Despite the property being a duplex, there is no noise interference from the neighbor. Janet was very nice, left us cookies and the welcome booklet with suggestions on restaurants and sites to experience in Santa Fe. I highly recommend anyone else looking for an affordable, private rental during their stay in Santa Fe!
Very convenient location to the Plaza as we could walk downtown very easily and the apartment was a great value in Santa Fe.
A little background is that my partner and I were spending our 8th summer in Santa Fe and rented Janet's apartment for a 3 full months this summer.
The positives first. The house is in an amazing location. It's a lovely, walkable neighborhood that is close to the Plaza, restaurants, a grocery store and some beautiful walking trails along a city arroyo. It is also a very typical, traditional adobe style home. If you've never been to Santa Fe it's definitely a treat to stay in a historic home with real Adobe walls. The front yard and parking area is a lovely spot for morning coffee. It's a major plus that the house comes with full cable and wireless internet. It is also a fairly inexpensive option considering the proximity to the plaza, the fact that it's dog friendly and other amenities like a full size washer and dryer. Also, if you've never visited before Janet has plenty of suggestions for restaurants and things to do.
Things to consider: as previous renters have noted, the furniture is all pretty old. Everything had the look of second or third hand. The sofa in particular is completely bare of padding and really should be replaced. I can't imagine sleeping on it. Through out the house all the pieces are mismatched and seem pretty ancient. The kitchen supplies probably need the most work. Some pots have holes in them and all of the non stick surfaces are scratched to the point of making them unusable. The back yard is fine for dogs to spend a little time in but I did not feel comfortable leaving my dog out there for any long period of time. There is no grass and no shade or covering of any kind to protect your pooch from the Santa Fe sun and rain. Also, the back porch/yard is shared with the neighbor who is very nice but has two pretty aggressive dogs that do not play well others.
In short, if you are a first time visitor staying for a short vacation I would definitely look into this house. If you are like us and looking for more of a long term, furnished apartment style house you might want to consider other options.
Thank you David!
I will be sure to address all those problems.
Great location! Walking distance to restaurants, museums, the plaza and bars. Charming and comfortable casita that is exactly as it appears on the pics.
Jane was super-helpful and very attentive. Highly recommended!
Thank you, I appreciate the nice review!
I loved the 2 weeks I spent in Santa Fe and this apartment. It's a good size for a one-room studio, with everything we needed. Great and reliable wifi, convenient location (restaurants, galleries, beautiful views of the mountains, etc).
Janet is a warm host who clearly cares about her guests. She was willing to work with us when my husband wasn't able to come (we had originally booked for 2 guests) and was flexible again when I had to cut my trip 2 weeks short. She was always very pleasant to interact with and responded very promptly to any questions.
We look forward to making our way back to Santa Fe and will gladly re-book with Janet when we do!
Janet's apartment is a great place to stay - close enough to the plaza to walk, but out of the way enough to be very quiet. We'll be using this location again for future trips to Santa Fe.
Thanks very much for the review. I'm glad you liked it and I hope you do return!
This was a great place to stay at a very reasonable price. The location was great - on a quiet street a pleasant 10 or 15-minute walk to the Plaza. The location is also convenient to grocery stores and to the entrance to 285/84 north and south. The casita is an historic adobe structure and the decor had lots of charming southwestern touches. The kitchen is well-equipped; we had just about everything we needed to cook for ourselves. The bed was comfortable. Janet left us many, many maps, guidebooks, and brochures about attractions in Santa Fe and the surrounding area. Detailed guides to hikes in the area were especially helpful. Another great feature was a courtesy pass to all the local public museums. Before our trip, Janet was very responsive to any questions we had, and during our trip, she touched base with us to make sure we were comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay at Janet's casita, and we'll definitely plan to stay with her again on our next trip!
Thank you very much! I enjoyed having you both there. Please come back.
The studio could not be in a better spot! Great for exploring Santa Fe but also perfect for day trips out of town because you can get on the freeway without going through town by hopping on the relief route. Very nice to have a washer and dryer! We got plenty muddy during our hikes. Janet was great, during our stay the government shut down and she was nice enough to give us some options other than the National Parks we were planning on visiting! Thanks Janet!
Dear Elizabeth and Oscar:
Thank you for the great review and please come back sometime!
We love staying with Janet! We'll be sure to check with her again the next time we get to Santa Fe!
We look forward to seeing you again!
