I have lived in Santa Fe, fondly called "The City Different," for over 30 years. I love life in Santa Fe and New Mexico, and look forward to sharing the marvels of the Land of Enchantment with guests at Casa Alegria, the Joyful House.

Lorene was one of the most welcoming and accommodating hosts that I've ever experience! Before I arrived she was helpful in letting me know how to find the property and when my flight was delayed several hours, she waited up until 3:00 am to welcome me and show me the house.
The house itself is very charming and an authentic Santa Fe experience. It felt like heaven sleeping in the bed which had a great mattress and an electric blanket. I enjoyed sitting on the bench swing in the front yard as well as sitting in the back yard and listening to the birds while soaking up the sun and fresh air.
Our stay in Lorene ' s adobe home was made all the better by her warm welcome and unique old world charm of the home itself. Lorene had loads of information about the surrounding area, and made excellent suggestions for activities, places to eat, and the history of Santa Fe. She went out of her way to make us all fit comfortably as we were a family of four including our two adult daughters. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. I look forward to seeing Loreen again & hope to return.
Lorene came right out to the road to help us find it, gave a great tour, and left us alone (in a good way!) she had many suggestions for things to do/see/eat and they were all fantastic. The casa was comfortable and inviting! The neighborhood was not what I expected at first but was quiet and comfortable.
Lovely home and hostess. The home is small and cozy and provided everything we needed during our stay in Santa Fe. The location does require some driving to attractions, but nothing is very far away.
Wonderful place. Great bed. Lorene was fantastic - she gave us wonderful tips on places to eat and visit while we were there.
If you are looking for a truly Santa Fe experience, Casa Alegria is perfection. A charming old adobe close to town but out of the hustle and noise. This is a fully equipped, well maintained property that has also preserved the essence of old Santa Fe charm without compromising comfort or modern day conveniences.
Lorene is helpful and a lovely hostess. She is extremely knowledgeable of Santa Fe and best of all is generous and sharing of her love and appreciation for this very special place in the "land of enchantment."
Casa Alegria was poignantly charming. The home is larger than photos suggest and the layout met our needs very well. The yard is charming, with tucked fairyland flowers. There is so much joy in this home. Our host was very accommodating. She even drove us to a restaurant on our first night after she had a long difficult day. She is so sweet. This is the place to stay.
We had a wonderful time at Casa Alegria! Lorene was so welcoming and friendly and open with sharing her local knowledge. The house was cozy and beautiful and charming. We always looked forward to returning home after a long day of adventuring. We would recommend staying at this casita to anyone wanting a home away from home.
Casa Alegria reflects the warmth and spirit of it's owner, Lorene. The casita and beautiful yard were a joy. Visiting Santa Fe is always an exciting, serene experience. Staying atbLorene's casita made it that much more wonderful. Paula Lindenberger
This was the second time in a month that I stayed with Lorene at Casa Alegria. The location is a short drive from not only the Santa Fe Plaza, but also the main New Mexico highways so exploring is easy. The cottage itself is cozy, containing everything a guest needs - excellent beds, shower, kitchen, and lovely patio. And of course Lorene is the best! I look at this airbnb option as if returning to a favorite "go to restaurant" -- that delivers on its expectations, comfort and quality with every visit.
