About the property

Original adobe house with 2 Bedrooms & 2 Baths

Permit #: 17-00142835

Casa Colibri (Unit A) is tucked away off a quiet side street and then down a long narrow driveway, both of the Compound’s two homes (Casa Tranquila is further back) are characterized by quiet privacy and attractive surroundings. Yet, an easy walk to the Plaza in the center of town.

Casa Colibri, at a bit over 1050 square feet and the larger of the two homes, often serves as the gracious social center for guests who occupy both houses in this compound.

Colibri’s central open space is air-conditioned and features high, coved viga-beam ceilings with skylights; a kiva fireplace; two cushy leather sofas and a well-equipped kitchen. One of the sofa's is a double bed sized sleeper sofa. Each bedroom has its own private bath. The larger of the bedrooms has a King Bed. The second bedroom has two twin beds (may be put together upon special request). There is also a sleeper sofa in the living room. Floors are warmed with radiant heat in the Winter. There is cable TV in the living room and high-speed wireless roaming internet access throughout the home and property.

The trumpet-vine-covered bricked entry/portico with cast-iron benches and chairs provides an additional seasonal outdoor gathering space.

Features:

Open layout combines living, dining and kitchen.

Temperature controlled with A/C and in-floor radiant heating.

Quality Dansk-ware place settings and Mexican hand-blown glassware.

Each bedroom with own tiled bathroom; master bathroom has a full-sized tub.

Brick floors and kilim carpets throughout.

Peace, quiet, and privacy in a secluded and attractive enclave.

Ceiling/floor fans and portable evaporative coolers.

In-house washer and dryer.

HD Cable TV & DVD.

High-speed roaming wireless internet access throughout the home and property.

Off street parking: 1 car for Colibri and 1 for Tranquila (or two for either home if the other is not occupied by other guests).

Owner's Response: Hi Judith, I really appreciate your review as it did highlight a few items that we were unaware of. Since receiving your comments, we have replaced the King Mattress with a brand new Sealy Posturepedic Firm mattress. We also have addressed the window pull issue and the other items you have mentioned. Again, thanks so much for staying with us and please think of Adobe Casitas Vacation Rentals for your next holiday in Santa Fe. All the best, Richard

Looking for the perfect getaway?

If you need to format for our comments, you may identify the +++'s first.

Suggestions to improve stay: (1) Stopper in the guest bathroom sink missing. (2) Simplify instructions for operation of the TV and A/C. (3) Replace mattress in Master B/R. (4) When locking windows while absent from Colibri, one person has to push from outside the window. (5) Washing machine and dryer were great convenience, however, the bottom of the dryer door was packed with lint which we removed with a fork...unnoticed at first until we saw a little bit hanging down from the door and began to pull and it just kept coming out.

YOU get +++'s for (1) the locking system on the entrance door. (2) Lots of closet/dresser/shelf space. (3) Loved the books in guest B/R. (4) Well stocked kitchen and all appliances worked as required including iron. (5) Very clean rental and loved the size of the refrigerator/freezer. (6) Plenty of room for 4 ladies to spread out to read, to watch TV, to use Wifi to watch amazon movies, to keep ironing board set up all the time because someone always had to press what to wear to the opera, ballet, chamber festival etc. (7) Great location. We walked at least twice, sometimes more to Plaza daily.

In conclusion, thanks for taking our calls and responding so quickly to our questions. We will want the whole property next year and will contact you for availability after we get performance dates.

Great location, great size

  • 5 of 5

Overall, wonderful. Reasonable price, great location, quaint. Our only suggestion is that it is time to upgrade the mattress on the big bed. It was worn and sloped. Otherwise, the stay was effortless.

Great location, great home, and great patio!

  • 5 of 5

The Casa Colibri is now one of our favorite places to stay in Santa Fe! We especially loved sitting out on the patio in the morning with a cup of coffee, walking to the plaza, and then returning to enjoy the patio again in the evening.

Comfortable cottage in hills above the old town.

  • 4 of 5

Comfy cottage with great beds and living room/dining room furniture. Great Master bedroom, small guest bedroom. Very close to the square but a bit of an uphill walk back. Beautiful porch for hanging out with drinks after sight seeing. Very quiet neighborhood.
