About this listing
Casita del Sol is the epitome of the charming, authentic casita that everyone looks for when visiting Santa Fe, located within a 10-15 min. (.7 mile) walk of old Santa Fe's picturesque plaza. Walled garden, off-street parking.
In the summer, enjoy our walled garden (shared with our other casita) as well as a private bistro table and chairs in the rear of the casita. In the winter, cozy up by your own kiva fireplace. It is very secluded and quiet, featuring authentic hand-painted Mexican tile and coved ceilings with original vigas, furnished with hand-carved Southwestern style furniture. The bedroom features fine linens for a wonderful night's sleep. There is a full-size sleeper sofa in the living room area. The sunny atmosphere is the result of skylights throughout. Tastefully decorated with attractive artwork and hand-woven rugs. Off-street parking available as well as laundry facilities. Upon your arrival, you will find all the ingredients for a continental breakfast! The casita is maintained with care and pride.
Wi-Fi, satellite TV with HBO, stereo with IPod dock
Long-Term Owners: My husband and I have owned this property for over 15 years. In that time we have established a number of return guests who come year after year, saying that this is the best accommodations they have ever stayed in while in Santa Fe.
Cooling: A/C: The property does not have air conditioning and it is not necessary. This is the original adobe construction which has been used in New Mexico for centuries. The adobe walls keep the casitas cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The only kind of air conditioning that I could put in these historic buildings would be window units and I refuse to do that as they can be quite noisy and unsightly. We do have fans, as well as a portable air conditioner available for the summer months if people want to use them. In addition, in Santa Fe, the nights are 25-30 degrees cooler than the days, so we do not have warm summer nights. We have guests who return every summer and know that the casitas are very comfortable. I remember a couple from Southern California who stayed with us a few years ago. They were concerned that there was no air conditioning, but they decided to stay anyway. They later told me that they were totally comfortable and were very pleased to have stayed in our property.

My husband, Andy, and I have owned this property for more than 14 years. During that time, we have had really wonderful experiences with our guests, many of whom return yearly.
We live in Santa Fe with our son who will graduate from high school soon. We have two collies and a cat. Love to travel.
