About the property

Original adobe house with 2 Bedrooms & 2 Baths

Permit #: 18-00149410

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.

In-house washer and dryer.

We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Colibri. Everything was in perfect order and ready for our stay. Casa Colibri is walking close to the Santa Fe Plaza and other areas of that beautiful city. Sitting on the patio in the early morning, listening to the quiet sounds of the birds and the wind in the trees. No traffic noise or loud neighbors. We will stay there again.

Great, Easy Stay

  • 5 of 5

Casa Colibri is a wonderful house close to the Plaza! It was clean and comfortable, with plenty of space for the four of us - just as advertised. The kitchen was well-furnished with pots, pans and utensils. There was a nice array of spices in the spice cabinet, and sugar and coffee filters for our coffee. I really appreciated the all-natural soap in the bathrooms as well! Highly recommend this location to Santa Fe visitors!

Fabulous location and managers

  • 4 of 5

This is a perfectly located casita for experiencing Santa Fe — very close to downtown yet in a quiet neighborhood. And the managers were extremely helpful and responsive to my questions. Both of these qualities are important in my book.

The casita is very well appointed and has everything you need. A few things needed attention and the managers, Richard and Leslie, were thankful to know so they could do something.

The casita is a bit snug for the furniture in it, but it’s cozy, comfy and a perfect place for four people.

We would definitely return and would very definitely rent from Richard and Leslie again.

Just Perfect and Exceeded Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

There were three seniors in our party, a couple and a single.

Casa Colibri was just perfect for the three of us. Sometimes pictures exceed what you actually encounter but here, the pictures are an accurate representation.

We did encounter a little bit of a problem locating the property. We passed by it on the first try but found it on the second. A very nondescript driveway that can be easily missed.

We arrived earlier than anticipated and a call to Richard allowed us to go ahead and settle in which we greatly appreciated.

We enjoyed the separation of the bedrooms giving us each a little more privacy. The Casita is roomy and comfortable. Even though we didn’t use it, there was even firewood left for us for one fire if we wanted. Furnishings are style appropriate for the southwest. A nice roomy kitchen well appointed and a private patio off the back entry with a nice table and chairs. We enjoyed a glass of wine while relaxing and enjoying the quiet area the Casita is located in.

An easy walk to the plaza and then we used the free shuttle system to get to various areas we wanted to visit.

This is my third time renting from Richard but the first time at this location. I have always found him very accommodating and easy to work with. I would recommend this unit to anyone interested.
