How many can say "we stayed in downtown Santa Fe"? Our casita (little house) is above the Turquoise Butterfly gallery and adjacent to our incredible courtyard and deck overlooking the Santa Fe River. Located two blocks from the plaza (the heart and soul of Santa Fe), our casita is close to so many great restaurants, galleries and shops. We are walking distance to Canyon Road and the Railyard, both stellar art districts. Speaking of walking distance, a gourmet grocery, fine wines and liquors is just up the block. And then there's the mountains and more high-desert landscapes just short day trips away. And don't forget Ski Santa Fe! Conde Nast Traveler ranked this ski resort #4 in Best Ski Resorts in the US and Canada. And Travel & Leisure said Santa Fe is one of the Top American Best Cities for Winter Travel! So come see what they are all talking about!
Let's talk about this casita a little more...Enter by climbing a mosaic art stairway and onto a private portal with flowers and tree tops.
Built in the early 1900’s, our place has old-world charm indicated by carved wood doors, tall ceilings, and hardwood floors. Open the door into a cozy, light filled room which has a skylight with wooden architectural highlights. An arched fireplace adorns your view with it's high mantel. Nice leather couch and TV with a small eating area are part of the charm of this room.
A beautiful master bedroom with a king size bed covered with Pendleton bedding and accented with old turquoise doors and a kiva fireplace welcomes you to a wonderful night’s sleep in the cool weather of Santa Fe. A sitting room connects to this bedroom and has a pull out double size couch for additional sleeping arrangements. Off of the sitting room is a lovely master bathroom with 2 petrified wood sinks and a tub/shower combination and an alcove containing new Washer and Dryer available for your use!
The second bedroom has a four poster queen size bed. The second bathroom includes a lovely, spa quality large shower.
The kitchen has a full size refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, oven and microwave---all appliances are new! Handmade tiles of red and turquoise reflect Santa Fe colors and make the kitchen an inviting place to cook.
The casita is above an amazing gallery called the Turquoise Butterfly. In fact, many of the items from our gallery have made their way upstairs and our casita is funished and decorated with them. If any of the items appeal to you, just ask our gallery staff. It is probably available for sale!
There is a private porch and deck where you can relax and enjoy just being here in Santa Fe. Best of all, there is a wonderful large courtyard next to you. The crystal quartz fountain in the courtyard is very beautiful and the sound of falling water will take your stress away! This place is "oh, so Santa Fe" so book it today!
I owned a gallery in Cloudcroft called the Copper Butterfly that burned to the ground in 2010. It was filled with different types of amazing art and it was a devastating loss. I waited 2 years to decide if I should open a gallery again, and I missed it so much. So we went to Santa Fe where we loved to visit and began to look. What we found was meant to be...the Casita Turquoise is an extension of our amazing art. Beautiful furnishings, great art, and that "Santa Fe" feel.

This property was not for sale when I made my husband stop and look at it. It was lonely and vacant, and I knew it had a story. We found the owners, told them our story, and the rest is history! The building is so unique with its old doors, fireplaces, and rooms that wander. The rooms are adorned with art from the store and so it is not only a place to stay, but it is a show place! Santa Fe is so full of art, history, culture, food, and wine which makes it a great place to visit---and our casita the best place to stay!
Casita Turquoise is in such a great location right in the downtown area. With the Santa Fe River and park right across the street, it is a nice place to just sit and people watch. The building is historic, with high ceilings, vigas, adobe plaster with bit of hay in it, but yet with all the modern conveniences! The full kitchen makes it nice to have breakfast right out your door or in the courtyard. Casita Turquoise is in walking distance of just about everything! Restaurants, the Plaza, Canyon Road, the Railyard, Museums, the State Capitol, and all of the hotels. Plus, shopping right below and all around! You will love the beautifully decorated southwestern décor and everything will make you comfortable!
Great location and a beautiful place. Easily slept the 5 of us and loved the decor. Very nice hosts and easy to get hold of. Walking distance to all of the Central Plaza with shops and restaurants. You will love the art in the casita
We have stayed at a lot of VRBO properties in different places, but this by far was our favorite.You cannot beat the location, right in the plaza and close to all the restaurants and shopping. The home is extremely well maintained. One of the things we especially loved was all the ammenties provided; bottled water, plenty of toilet paper, toiletries, laundry detergent, coffee, creamer, etc! The owners thought of everything and we were so grateful. In addition, the beds and linens were so comfy. We felt at home and it was hard to leave!
This property is so wonderfully located, and the manager, Bernadette is a doll. I recommend this property, especially for a girls' getaway like ours.
Having said that, I am so tired of HomeAway and VRBO's exhorbitant fees that I will be looking for other ways to rent properties in Santa Fe.
This is a beautiful house, very tastefully decorated and with high end amenities. The location of this property is simply awesome, you are in the heart of the city and can walk to all major landmarks. We stayed with our family and we loved every moment.
The Casita is a wonderful place to stay. It combines the charm of Santa Fe with a perfect location in the heart of town. Though it is on busy Alameda street, it is very private and quiet. The outdoor patio overlooks the Santa Fe river and park area, and we spent most of our time there soaking up the dry air and sparkling light that we come to Santa Fe to enjoy. The Casita is really it's own little gallery, with charming art and furnishings throughout. Both baths and the kitchen are fully updated with very tasteful decor. The addition of a convenient parking arrangement was very welcomed, and it made the Casita just that much more enjoyable.
If you want to be in he heart of Santa Fe and not be in a hotel, definitely consider the Casita. We certainly intend to return.
Three 60+ ladies had a great reunion at the Turquoise Butterfly Casita. We enjoyed the porch every evening. The location was perfect for walking to the plaza and enjoying all the shops and galleries. All the ladies in the shop below were very helpful and informative.
We had a wonderful time and would recommend the Turquoise Butterfly. The whole place was very comfortable and welcoming.
This casita is located right in the historic downtown area where all the shopping, restaurants, museums, events, festivals, and so much more are! This is the place to be when you are in Santa Fe. The art, the history, and the culture are amazing and this casita is in the heart of it all! Located in a historic building with old doors, wood floors, kiva fireplaces and more! There are restaurants on each corner, the oldest house and oldest church one block away, the Inn of the Loretto is just steps away and the La Fonda is one block away. The Loretto Chapel with the mysterious staircase is right around the corner, and the Santa Fe River is across the street. The State Capitol is one block away and you can walk to the plaza in 2 minutes. Adjoining the Casita is a beautiful 10,000 sf courtyard with a crystal quartz fountain that flows continuously. Spinning minerals, beautiful flowers, and a view of the locals. Cant find a better place!
