About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

SIX NIGHT MINIMUM - Mountain vistas, open landscape, spacious and elegant interior…plus, only a short walk to the town center, The Plaza.

Located just two blocks behind Ft. Marcy Park in a private setting with incredible, unobstructed views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Casa Altamira is just a 15 minute walk to the famed Santa Fe Plaza. From here you are ready to explore “The City Different” with the mingling of Native American, Anglo, and Hispanic cultures. Shopping, galleries, museums, and restaurants abound.

Whether you are two or more, you will enjoy this pleasant and open three-bedroom, two-bath home decorated in popular Southwestern colors of oranges and golds which complement the furniture, art, and architecture.

The living area and two bedrooms are on the main living level. Magnificent views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains can be seen from the living room, dining room, kitchen, and 2nd bedroom. The deck off the living/dining room gives you more unobstructed mountain views. From here you can enjoy the dry and sunny Santa Fe climate while sipping your morning coffee or afternoon Margarita!

The living room has a large flat-screen TV, a wood-burning kiva fireplace and a leather sofa and recliner. It is lined with bookcases full of books for your reading enjoyment. The open floor plan creates a large living space, with the dining room (seats six) adjoining the living room.

Cooking in the fully equipped kitchen with new gas stove will be a delight. You have a mountain view from the kitchen window! There is also a dinette table with easy kitchen access.

There are two bedrooms on this main floor that share a full hall bath. The queen bedroom has its own private patio (also with mountain views) and small TV. The other bedroom has two twin beds.

Up a half flight of stairs is the king master suite, again with mountain views of the Sangre de Cristos, but also having a deck with southern views of the Sandia Mountains, a lovely place to watch the sunsets! This room also has a wood-burning kiva fireplace, a flat screen TV, as well as a large desk set up as an office area. The bath has two sinks and a beautifully tiled shower.

Full size washer/dryer, air conditioning, double garage, and off-street parking are house amenities. Of course, all linens, cable TV, wireless internet are included.

This house is on a generous size lot. It is private. There are no homes situated to look in your windows or see you on the deck….yet, you are just a few minutes’ walk to the energy of the Plaza. DeVargas shopping plaza is also near by. The closeness of Ft. Marcy Park has added benefits. There is a large open area for dog-walking. And the public Community Center has an Olympic size pool, exercise equipment, and classes (yoga, Pilates), all for an extremely reasonable price.

Destino Santa Fe is a cooperative, private group of homeowners and we are proud to represent Casa Altamira.

Comfortable, Well-Appointed, Great Location/Views

  • 5 of 5

Casa Altamira is a very comfortable home that has all the amenities needed for an enjoyable and relaxing stay. Though we spent the majority of our week-long visit to Santa Fe out-and-about, exploring the region, at the end of each day, our party of 6 really enjoyed coming back to this home to unwind and relax.

The home had plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and not feel crowded, yet when we wanted to spend time together, the house is set up in such a way that makes it easy to congregate (at dinner, in front of the fire, or out on the expansive deck where you can take in mountain views or stargaze at night).

The home is well-equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay - all you need to cook including extra spices, condiments, etc; plenty of books, games and videos; plenty of bedding; lots of firewood; and way too many tvs ... get outside and explore :). The host is quick to respond to any inquiries and is proactive in communicating critical information.

The location is fantastic. It's about a 10-15 minute walk into the heart of Santa Fe, so close you don't have to deal with parking, but just enough outside that you're not consumed in all the busy in-town traffic. It's also a great launching pad for excursions into Taos, Ski Santa Fe, Bandelier and any other points north or east as you don't have to traverse greater Santa Fe.

If/when we return to Santa Fe, we'll look to rebook Casa Altamira!

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a very unique setting that offers a quiet location, beautiful views and yet only an easy 20 minute walk right to the middle of Santa Fe - all at the same time! You can even drive to a lage ski resort in 40 minutes! The house is beautifully decorated and we found the furniture, beds and couches very comfortable. Lots of places to walk and close to shops, parks and resturants. We highly recommend this location!

Holiday Delight

  • 5 of 5

Our family just spent Christmas week at Casa Altamira. It was just perfect for everything we did from cooking holiday meals, relaxing by the fire, skiing and sledding on the nearby ski mountain, playing in the park a block away, or enjoying the activities in the Plaza. It even snowed on Christmas Eve. The views out all the windows were breathtaking. Casa Altamira is beautifully designed and decorated and provided plenty of space for grandchildren to play and adults to visit. Everyone left saying this was the best family vacation ever. We look forward to returning.

Serenity Now

  • 5 of 5

Casa Altamira was a delightful place to stay while exploring the 'city different.' We rented for 10 days and hosted a few guests along the way. The condo is spacious, comfortable and well out-fitted. The deck was a delightful place to relax and enjoy the mountain views; we even saw a double rainbow the first day we checked -in. The condo is well-situated, within walking distance of the Plaza and museums, but feels private and quiet in a community off the main roads. The rental transaction was easy and straightforward; we had no issues to be resolved during our stay. We highly recommend this property and will stay here again if our path brings us back to Santa Fe.

New Mexico Winter

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely home to spend a month in the culturally diverse capital of New Mexico. Any issues were quickly resolved and always pleasantly. The walks to the plaza were downhill. The furnishings and artwork were appropriate for the southwest and tasteful. We exchanged a 65 degree morning for a 104" snow base ski adventure in 30 minutes. This was a reasonable decision which we thoroughly enjoyed and have no regrets.

Great place to stay in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We already rented this property twice and were not disappointed. Great location within walking distance from the central plaza, yet quiet and away from it all. We like to go self-catering, and the house has all the amenities we could need. Great terrace with sufficient privacy.
