About Tracy Fulton and Joseph Mahoney

Tracy and Joseph live in Dallas, Texas. Tracy is from Wichita Falls, Texas and Joseph is from Monterey Park, California. Casita Eileen is the culmination of years of friendship, dreaming, planning, endings, and new beginnings. For most of Tracy's adult life he visited Northern New Mexico with his best friend Eileen Byrne. For many years they enjoyed trips to Santa Fe, Red River, Angel Fire, Taos, and Eagle Nest. Their trips included great friends, great food and always great wine. They talked about someday retiring to the 'City Different' and enjoying all of the relaxation and beauty of 'The Land of Enchantment'. Owing a casita they could share was always the goal of these life long friends. Plans for their joint retirement ended when Eileen was diagnosed with cancer at an early age. During her courageous battle with cancer, Eileen was recommended to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston as her last hope. Tracy joined her on her appointment at the hospital for the first of many visits. During the first visit, Tracy had the good fortune of meeting his partner Joseph while in Houston. The first conversations they had revealed that they had the same love for Santa Fe that Tracy and Eileen had shared for many years. Joseph had lived in Santa Fe for several years prior to returning to Houston. Joseph immediately shared Tracy's love for Eileen and accompanied her to the hospital for several more visits. Tracy and Joseph decided to follow all of their dreams and someday own a home in Santa Fe. Eileen passed away in 2010, but her spirit lives on in many peoples lives. Every visit to Santa Fe involves memories and celebrations of Eileen. As Tracy and Joseph made plans to purchase their first home in Santa Fe, they both wanted a name for their casita that would be perfect. Tracy considered names and Joseph wanted to share in that privilege. Over breakfast in Dallas, Joseph suggested the perfect name for the casita. Welcome to Casita Eileen.

Why Tracy Fulton and Joseph Mahoney chose New Mexico

We felt this location provided the best of both worlds--tranquility, nature and the feeling of 'getting away from it all', yet close enough to town for the activity, fun and culture that Santa Fe offers.

What makes this townhome unique

Swimming daily throughout the summer! Hiking right outside the door! Enjoying sunset views 100 steps up the side of the hill! Enjoying central a/c when the weather gets too hot!

Beautiful surroundings both inside and outside

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation in Santa Fe due in no small part to our stay at Casita Eileen. Tracy and Joseph's town home is beautifully appointed with all the amenities. The area is great for hiking during the day or just sitting out on the patio at night enjoying the stars. Tracy and Joseph provided us with a list of places to eat and things to do on the area. They were wonderful to work with. This was our first VRBO experience and it was great! We hope to return to Casita Eileen in the future. We loved it.

Beautiful casita above Tesuque

  • 5 of 5

This 2/2 casita is beautifully appointed, comfortable and with every amenity you could want. Having stayed in downtown Santa Fe many times in the past, we were ready for a change. This location is perfect for Opera-goers, as we are, as well as convenient to the freeway for day trips. Will definitely plan on coming back.

July 22-25 2016 Casita Eileen visit

  • 5 of 5

Tracy and Joseph, what a wonderful place you have! We felt very much at home. You have thought of every everything down to the smallest detail to make a this experience a home away from home. The southwest décor was beautiful. We enjoyed sitting out on the patio in the morning drinking coffee and in the evening after being out all day relaxing. We practically had the pool to ourselves. The beds were very comfortable and the bedrooms were very spacious. There was plenty of hot water for the showers. The directions and restaurants that was suggested were wonderful and along with the suggestions of things to see and do. It was perfect!! It was hard for us to want to leave however definitely a place to come back to in the future. New Mexico is definitely the land of enchantment and so is Casita Eileen! Thank you again for your hospitality!!

Delightful get-away spot in the dessert

  • 5 of 5

I loved this charming casita located a few minutes outside of Santa Fe across the road from the Four Seasons Resort. It was the perfect accommodation for a couple of friends who were looking for a relaxing spot for a retreat from the real world. The location is close to the Santa Fe Opera, which was perfect for us as we attended two performances during the week.

The casita was very comfortable and the 2 bedrooms-2 baths was perfect. The only minor inconvenience was that the casita is on three levels with four steps to the middle level (kitchen/dining room) and two more steps to the bedrooms/bathrooms level. But that elevation provided fantastic views out of most of the windows. Everything was very clean and there were plenty of necessities available.

The close location to the complex's pool was very convenient. It was very quiet in the area, which just added to the desired ambiance. Although Santa Fe was experiencing extreme heat while we were there, we still were able to sit out on the patio (under the umbrella) during the mornings. We found the Blueray player to be very handy so we got in some serious movie-watching. The kitchen was nicely appointed, and while we didn't do any cooking, it had everything we needed for heating up leftovers. We found everything we needed in the house so felt right at home.

We enjoyed dining at the nearby Tesuque Market and also went into Santa Fe for some meals. Because we wanted a retreat setting, being outside of the city proper worked perfectly for us. We also visited Abiquiu to tour the Georgia O'Keefe home/studio so being on the "right" side of Santa Fe helped make that field trip more convenient.

I would book the casita again in an instant for another stay! It met all of our needs, was very comfortable and nicely appointed, and the owners are terrific. Can't wait until my next visit! (And I won't hesitate to recommend this property to others.)
