A very gentle side of steps leads to the main entry. Your immediate response is one of happiness as the you view the antique doors. MASTER SUITE.

Throw open the patio doors and bring the outside in for soft cool breezes and al fresco dining under the cerulean skies or starry nights. LOWER LEVEL. For a complete separation of space, the lower level has twin beds (can be made for king bed), en suite bath, walk-in closet and private entrance.

It is a friendly neighborhood that in invites you to take a walk or a bike ride. The location is just right being around the corner from Canyon Road and three of our best restaurants, Geronimo, El Farol and The Tea House.

TRUTH BE TOLD. “I got high-fives from everybody in the family on the choice of Cerro Gordo Casa. It really felt like home and we all looked forward to trading stories at the end of the day over a glass of wine on either patio. The kitchen was great but we never used it except for coffee in the morning because we ate out every day. There was no end to the restaurant chain…….you must try Joseph’s Table! Oh, and the beds were great. We appreciated being met at the house with the keys and AQUI was a delight to work with from beginning to end………they even answer their phone calls promptly.

AQUI SANTA FE WELCOMES YOU. Drive directly to the house where Caroline will meet you with keys and for a brief tour. At departure she is back again to pick up the keys and bid you a fond farewell.

YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER THE HOMES JUST UP THE HILL FOR MORE FRIENDS AND FAMILY. VRBO #670624 OR #387860 are very close and the perfect complement to Cerro Gordo Casa.

THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING CERRO GORDO CASA. We look forward to ensuring a memorable vacation where peace of mind is among the many amenities.

My best,

Caroline Morgan

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just a quick note to say thanks again for your kind and responsive accommodation this afternoon. We were both impressed that you so quickly realized that a change of venue might be essential and came up with a happy solution.

As I mentioned, I was a bit exhausted, also juggling supper guests and some other distractions. Fortunately Ben was there to provide you the more gracious communication you deserved.

The Cerro Gordo place is much more workable for us. Besides the cooler space, we always look for a place that is well lit and feels somewhat expansive, so that is a bonus here. Thanks also for holding the original rate.

With appreciation,

Wonderful home for our holiday visit to Santa Fe!

  • 5 of 5

Cerra Gordo Casa was a perfect spot for our family of four this past holiday. Aqui provides well-appointed interiors that are spotless and comfortable, making it easy for us to relax in or catch a break from our adventures throughout Santa Fe. Our two teen boys had plenty of space to escape to and we loved the proximity to Canyon Rd and the walk along the creek. And Caroline from Aqui made our arrival easy with her in-person welcome. Loved it!

Owner's Response: Having the whol2 family come for Christmas is the best! Cerro Gordo has those wonderful twin beds that makes live easy for children of any age. And just in case that is not enough there is a wonderful new queen sofa bed. For kids who want to wonder off on there own, it is a straight 3/4 mile to the Plaza and right around the corner the other way is the end of Canyon Road with The Tea House, El Farol for some night music and Geronimo's for and exquisite dinner. And for are right on the road to the Santa Fe Ski. It couldn't be more convenient.

Loved the location!

  • 5 of 5

This house deserves big time credit. It was an easy-less- than-- mile walk to the Plaza and just around the corner from the Tea House on Canyon Road which became our regular morning hang out. The house lives really well with a bedroom on the upper level and one on the lower level so there is good privacy. We will be back for sure. Oh. and AQUI is great. The PRATESI sheets were luxurious!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location for any visitor to Santa Fe. You can walk downtown or to Canyon road in minutes. The house is fully equipped and wonderfully maintained. It is a cozy home to come back to after a day of activities. There is a binder that will tell you all you need to know about Santa Fe including the most up to date restaurants and more! We loved it. Caroline is the most attentive concierge!

Owner's Response: There are so many interesting and fun things to do in Santa Fe and over 250 wonderful restaurants so the "Silent Concierge" book gives you some great recommendations to start with. Then, I always love to hear about your new the Bug Museum for kids!

Everything fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house! High end furnishings and accessories, well chosen art, fully equipped kitchen, modern baths, great lighting, 2 outdoor patios, free wifi and best of all, the property manager, Caroline. She could not have been more pleasant, attentive, helpful and fun. We went to several of her restaurant recommendations, and they were wonderful! Be sure to ask her for suggestions. While the house would be a bit of a walk to The Plaza, it is only three blocks to the upper, east end of Canyon Road and The Teahouse restaurant--great for delicious, casual food and desserts! Trust me, you will not be disappointed in Casa Cerro Gordo.

Owner's Response: Do I have the best guests? Yes, I absolutely do and I could not ask for more. These two couples traveled so well together and lived and enjoyed the house fully. Key to some of this great living was the lower walk-out bedroom giving everybody the privacy they needed but brought them altogether in the generous living-dining area. I can still hear them laughing and carrying on...that means they had a good stay!
