A Gem in the Desert

November 2, 2014

This studio apartment is a great place for one or two people to stay in comfort and quiet. Although the desert landscape and the open skies make it feel like it is far away, it is actually just a few minutes outside of Santa Fe. The outside of the building appears like the traditional adobe, but you enter into an Art Deco aesthetic that is simple and charming. The place is clean and well-kept. The bed is comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped and usable. But it is the extras that make the difference: the bowl of fruit, the coffee and orange juice in the refrigerator, the grand flower arrangement, and an orchid in the shower! Caroline is very attentive and helpful. Her personality permeates this small space and makes it a delightful base for a visit to Sante Fe.

A Unique Accommodation in Santa Fe

August 10, 2014

The previous reviews say it all! This secluded studio is a gem, offering everything you could possibly need for your stay! It is charming, comfortable, quiet and private. The sound of the pond’s waterfall and the view of the mountains are delightful bonuses. We are frequent travelers and have never been welcomed so warmly. Caroline is the ultimate hostess! We hope to return!

Had a great time.

June 11, 2014

Caroline was great and attended to all the necessary details, including the breakfast items (home-grown eggs and fresh flowers) and the kitchen furnishings (including outdoor bar-b-que and eating area). The setting was as advertised and quite comfortable (good price too). It was very pet friendly, including resident dogs Bosco and Andrew who were great hosts. We enjoyed the surroundings and general area. Easy to get in and out to wherever we wanted to go (especially with our GPS unit)

Caroline's retreat

May 3, 2014

All of the reviews are right on! Caroline provides a lovely and comfortable retreat. She truly goes above and beyond in providing for a relaxing experience, and she makes sure your every need is met. I forgot a book I was reading and she mailed it to me so it was waiting when I arrived home. Caroline is a great hostess and I would recommend this accommodation for anyone who is visiting Santa Fe. She offers good information on the surrounding area, and she quickly attends to any questions/needs you may have, while providing the privacy you would expect on a vacation. You will be happy you experienced this studio apartment on your stay in Santa Fe... so much better than staying at a hotel in town.

Five Star Casita

October 10, 2013

We can't say enough good things about our stay at Carolline's casita. Everything you read in the reviews is true. The apartment is close to town but far enough away to enjoy the quiet of the desert and the beautiful sunsets. Caroline's casita is a delight to stay in and clean and comfortably furnished. Not to mention all the extras she supplies including the fresh eggs and a beautiful flower arrangement. It was the perfect place to stay with our 2 dogs with plenty of space for them to exercise. We can't wait to come back next year. It was truly a wonderful experience

Another Great Stay.

My husband and I stayed for a few days in this charming space. We loved being outside of town surrounded by open desert. Everything we needed in our casita was provided. Caroline doesn't miss a beat. We'll be back!




Wonderful Place

June 20, 2013

Just as described. This was my second time renting a property in Santa Fe. I love this little house. Caroline is very nice. I was able to stay here with my daughter and we brought a small dog, we felt very safe. Fresh Eggs, Flowers, Clean, Beautiful... And we love Boscoe.. Wow!! you won't be disappointed. Thank you Caroline.

First of all, we really enjoyed the location. Very close to the city but just far enough away to feel peacefully remote. Caroline is wonderful - very easy going and kind. Her attention to detail is impressive. In the morning we enjoyed coffee, fresh eggs, and english muffins that she'd left for us. Had a lovely fire in the fireplace. Large, beautiful windows let in lots of morning sun if you leave the curtains open. In the evening you can see the stars and it is dead silent outside. Bed is comfy with plenty of pillows. The kitchenette had everything we needed and the bathroom was cute with interesting fixtures and a nice skylight. Thank you! You absolutely cannot beat the value of the delightful little apartment.

Best Value in Santa Fe

March 17, 2013

I have never stayed in a place that provided so many wonderful extras. Fresh eggs, juice, fruit, coffee, flowers, bed warmer, fireplace with arranged firewood; everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. And the price ($70) was a great value.

Santa fe getaway

February 19, 2013

This place was lovely, as was the owner. A gorgeous spot outside of santa fe with everything you could possibly need, plus many extra special touches.. The coffee in the room was outstanding! It is a bit hard to find, but nothing GPS can't overcome. If you aren't into the idea of hotel ABC, this is a unique and special stay, especially given the price. Wow, wow, wow. No doubt i would stay again on any return visit to santa fe!

Sante Fe Hide-a-way

November 3, 2012

My husband and I spend a week meandering around Albuquerque, Sante Fe and Taos, and found the perfect place for two! Our hostess answered our questions, forwarded detailed directions and warmly met with us when we arrived. Located up on a ridge, just off a freeway, far enough to think you were away from everything, we found the perfect place! Spacious, modern, beautifully decorated, with fresh flowers and a big bowl of fresh fruit; Caroline had left the refrigerator stocked with fresh coffee beans, juice, yogurt, english muffins and fresh eggs from her chickens. What a welcome! We had a private patio with twinkling lights from which we could enjoy a sky full of more stars than I've ever seen at night, and where we could take our coffee and enjoy the beautifully varied bird life at the little pond in the morning, while we took photographs of the sun as it came up over the mountains. And our casita came with a great bed and wonderful linens that instantly put us to sleep. The bathroom was stocked with fluffy bathrobes; a live orchid happily grew in the shower beneath the skylight, and everything you might have needed, was stocked in the bathroom cabinets! Although we did not use the TV or fireplace while there, we did appreciate all the wonderful books and guides for sightseeing in the area. While we were there, we enjoyed a wonderful all day ride on the Cumbres and Toltec Railroad, loved the Georgia O'Keefe museum; toured around Sante Fe and Taos and visited wonderful artisians, including those of the Taos Peubo. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at the Sante Fe Baking Co (try thier breakfast burritos!!) and a great dinner at Rancho De Chimayo on our way back from Taos. We hope to come back to this wonderful casita soon! Caroline was so gracious to check days after we left, to see if she could find the cell phone that I lost while in town and it would feel like "coming home" to come back!

Fabulous Retreat!!!

May 21, 2012

Caroline's attention to detail is incredible...everything was taken care of and nothing was missed. She even had coffee beans, sugar and creamer for us! I loved the fresh eggs from Ian's chickens, fresh flowers, fruit, the visits from Bosco (standard poodle), etc. We loved the composting and recycling availability. We didn't see Caroline during the week but her presence was always felt. (i.e. she would turn the lights on for us if we weren't there by sunset, emptied the trash daily, etc.) The casita is very private and quiet. The decor and flow/layout of the place was perfect. Cable tv was provided so we didn't feel out of touch with the world but also had the option to sit on the patio and watch the full moon rise over the mountains. The bed was extremely comfortable and the linens were plush. We spent a fantastic week at the casita and look forward to going again. We have been raving about this place to all of our friends. It is a great find!

March 23, 2012

the place is a little out of the way, but SO worth it. It is clean, quiet and peaceful. The pictures you see is extactly what you get! It is stocked with all the basics and a few added extras that make you feel special. Caroline is friendly and makes you feel right at home. The kitchen is stocked with all the basic needs plus an espresso/coffee machine. The bed has an electric heated mattress that is super cozy on a cold night. firewood is readily available if you want to use the fireplace. The shower has an adjustable shower head that works great. The pond w/ small water fall directly outside the front porch is a relaxing, just get you cup of coffee/tea and sit outside enjoy the quiet of the outdoors. My husband and I would definitely be back..

We opened the door and smiled. Carolyn had left us a beautiful boquet of flowers The fridge was stocked with breakfast treats in case we didn't come prepared. We can't say enough about how welcoming and thoughtful Carolyn is and how beautiful and welcoming the cottage felt. If you needed direction, she was present. If you wanted alone didn't even know she was in the home next to you. And she is delightful to get to know! The cottage was perfect. The view from "All the windows" was mountains....beautiful sunsets....... Great hiking right outside your door and 10 minutes to downtown Santa Fe. We brought a standard poodle Sadie who enjoyed playing every morning with Boscoe her new "poodle" friend" WE WILL RETURN. THANK YOU CAROLYN!!!

Wish my vacation was longer

September 27, 2011

Caroline was a wonderful host and her little casita was an absolute delight to stay in. With so much to do and see in Santa Fe and the surrounding area, we did not get to spend as much time at the casita as we would have liked to. We definately need to book more than 3 days. We have never stayed at a 5 star hotel but our every need was anticipated and the hospitality shown to us was great. It's a bargain for $65.00/night.

New Memory of Santa Fe

August 10, 2011

All the 5-star comments appear on the websites about Caroline's delightful casita are absolutely true. My husband and I visited Santa Fe thirty years ago, our only memory was about the plaza and the numerous galleries. This time, thanks to Caroline, we will have fond memory of our sweet home away from home. Even Caroline's two dogs did a good job as welcoming hosts. Caroline will get returned visits from us for sure.

What a perfect Santa Fe getaway! Awesome location close to town, but secluded, quiet, and surrounded by beautiful mountainous landscape. Caroline is a charming and accommodating hostess, and has the casita stocked with everything you could ever want or need. Best value in Santa Fe, especially when traveling with a dog - can't wait to come back!!

Truly enjoyed staying at the Casita tucked away from downtown in the hills of Santa Fe. Caroline had our room supplied with fresh flowers, fruit basket and breakfast items in the refrigerator that included fresh eggs from her chickens. Definitely would consider staying again. Thank you Caroline!!!

Eloquent Experience

May 16, 2011

My wife and I enjoyed our holiday very much. From the spectacular surroundings to the intimate details, our stay was wonderful and carefree. Caroline was attentive, respectful, charming and consistently one step ahead of our wants. The studio casita was fantastic; moments away from the city yet far enough away to give a sense of solitude. Travel from the home to any of the area's attractions was effortless and safe. Charming, comfortable, and accommodating only go so far when describing the warmth and hospitality offered. Caroline's presence, the wildlife, fresh eggs and views unsurpassed rendered our experience a true value. Thank you kindly Caroline. Kathy & Ed

Beautiful Casita

March 15, 2011

We stayed at this Casita while visiting Santa Fe. The setting is beautiful. Don't be fooled by the outside because it is basic adobe. The inside is spacious, well designed and has all the facilities you would want. There is even a working fireplace. The hostess provided us with fresh flowers, fruit and food for the the first morning and actually comes in regularly to take away the garbage. We certainly recommend it to others!

An Oasis in Santa Fe

November 20, 2010

A wonderful, peaceful, rejuvenating oasis minutes away from the heart of Santa Fe. From the fantastic sunrises, to the birds flitting about all day, to the fish in the pond and Caroline's friendly dogs, the experience is one of positive energy amid clean and comfortable surroundings. The best experience I have had to date as to what it would be like to live in Santa Fe. Thanks Caroline

Stay Here

September 20, 2010

Caroline's apartment was perfect in every way. It was roomy and comfortable. It had a beautiful porch looking out at the mountains, fish pond with waterfall and the spacious back yard. Location was close, but not to close to the town of Santa Fe. It felt like you were going home. On top of the property you get Caroline. She was a fabulous hostess with fresh coffee, eggs, bagles, fruit and flowers awaiting us. We will be back for sure.

Lovely stay

June 25, 2010

If you choose a hotel over this place, you're wasting your money. At this price, it would be difficult to find a home that could leave you with a more authentic Santa Fe experience than this comfortable casita. We loved the drive to and from town, and Caroline made every effort to assure that we were well provided for. Our visit was a quiet respite. Thanks so much, Caroline. We hope to visit again. Say hi to Bosco and Doog for us. Amber, Lily, & Autumn

Perfect Getaway

December 1, 2009

This studio was fantastic! It's close enough for a short drive downtown but in an area secluded enough to feel like you're miles outside the city. Perfect. I enjoyed this place so much that I am recommending it for friends and family that visit Santa Fe. Caroline gives great attention to detail and made our stay very comfortable.




Peaceful and comfortable

November 14, 2009

This studio casita was the perfect combination for my first visit to New Mexico. Removed from the busy tourist areas to enjoy the peace and beauty of the landscape, and yet close enough to Santa Fe to easily take in all the museums, restaurants and shopping. It was wonderful to return at the end of the day and listen to the bubbling waterfall of the goldfish pond. It was just as lovely to wake up in the morning and enjoy the birds bathing in the pond while having coffee (beans, grinder and good coffee pot all provided!) The casita is only as good as it's hostess, and Caroline takes care of everything. She is attentive to details (providing plush linens, abundant breakfast fixings, everything you might need from umbrellas to binoculars!), thoughtful (leaving outdoor lights on for late night returns) and provides exceptional service (daily tidying/linen replacements in the most unobtrusive fashion). Although I had done a fair bit of research and knew what I wanted to do, I appreciated the many guides and books provided, as well as Caroline's suggestions. Her recommendation for a restaurant on our last night was divine (and affordable!), and I'd go there reguarly if I could! I cannot imagine finding a better vacation rental for the price. The casita is comfortable, completely functional (I love the retro decor of the bathroom), and the views are simply splendid. Thanks Caroline for sharing this beautiful spot with us.

Thanks this beautiful rental, we had the best vacation ever. A quiet place with everything you need and more. The view, the little pond with goldfish, the fully-equipped kitchenette, and especially the hostess's extra-special touches made this an extraordinary find.
