About Bobbie C.

I am a 20 year resident in Santa Fe and am a full time resident. The guesthouse is across the driveway from my home but is completely private with no views into either house. I have 3 rescue dogs who are all very friendly!

Bobbie C. purchased this house in 2002

Why Bobbie C. chose Santa Fe

This is a very safe and secure part of Santa Fe - It feels as though you are out in the country, with trails and wildlife, but only a few minutes from downtown. You can even walk to the De Vargas center for a meal or shopping in the many local stores.

The perfect place to nest for a month

  • 5 of 5

El Pequeno Nido was an ideal location for our month-long stay in Santa Fe. Bobbie has provided a sweet home that is beautifully and simply decorated, comfortable, quiet, convenient, safe, and that has all the necessities of home. Additionally, she has provided special amenities that my partner and I enjoyed immensely: gas fireplace, extensive spice rack, hot tub for soaks after hiking, Roku for easy access to our VUDU movie account, lounge chairs plus outdoor patio dining, a varied book selection, and a computer nook for attending to personal business. Since we lived in the area previously, we did not need much information from Bobbie but she let us know she was readily available for anything we might need. We have two dogs (one a Great Pyrenees) and were so happy and grateful that Bobbie readily welcomed us and them. The enclosed outdoor patio helped us all feel at home. The vrbo sits down from the street but a very short distance up the private path is a stone bench and beautiful view to the mountains. Just the short walk up to the street level gives you a full view of the surrounding mountains, clouds, and stars at night. The neighborhood offers a safe, low traffic area to walk the dogs. Plus, there are three other City of Santa Fe trail areas within close or easy walking distance of the vrbo to get off the street and onto a trail. We loved our stay and highly recommend this vrbo and the gracious host, Bobbie.

Cozy Casita in the Perfect Part of Santa Fe!

  • 5 of 5

We were staying in Santa Fe for a month while traveling. This place was the perfect home away from home. Bobbie was such an excellent host. The house was so cozy and comfortable with its gas fireplace. It keeps it warm and comfy while watching tv or reading a book. She has lots of books and magazines available to read. Loved the location as it was close to the Plaza but not too close. The area where the house located is really beautiful and the neighborhood is in a very safe area. She had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Would definitely stay here again!

The Perfect Stay in Sante Fe

  • 5 of 5

We are traveling full-time and live in AirBnB and VRBO. This was our favorite stay so far. Bobbie was the perfect host and made us feel right at home and helped us acclimate to Sante Fe. The neighborhood is very quiet and has easy access to all the sites in Sante Fe. We loved our stay and wished we had booked for a longer time.

Wonderful stays here!

  • 5 of 5

Twice we have stayed here--both times for two months. Our terrific experiences keeps us coming back. The casita is well appointed, comfortable, and ideally located. We found nothing lacking in the well equipped kitchen or other amenities. Bobbie is a lovely person who is readily available but never intrusive. We are so happy for the opportunity to get to know her. Our German shepherd dog was quite at home here and welcomed by Bobbie and her dogs. We love Santa Fe and cannot say enough about how our stays here have only enhanced our affection for the people and the place.

Perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

The casita was the perfect place to relax and enjoy Santa Fe. Walking and hiking trails right outside your door. Neighborhood was quiet and safe away from downtown congestion. Very dog friendly, my pooches had a great time too! Bobbie was extremely

accomdating to my needs and made extra efforts to assure I was comfortable and had what I needed. The casita was very well appointed with all the extras you may need, I was surprised to find many basic staples in the kitchen and a wide assortment of spices which made cooking a breeze. I hope I will be able to go back to the casita for another Santa Fe visit soon, it was perfect!

Exactly what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at El Pequento Nido while we were looking for a permanent home in Santa Fe. It was everything we wanted - cozy, comfortable, immaculate, beautifully furnished (very Santa Fe-ish!!!), and totally equipped (appliances, towels, etc.) It was obvious that Bobbie put a lot of love into this sweet casita!

Bobbie was the perfect host - she was always more than happy to help in anyway she could. She gave us great recommendations from restaurants to hair salons. We did find a permanent home, but we'll always remember El Pequento Nido as a very special place.
