A great place to stay when visiting Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this house for the month of June 2017. Our experience there was very positive. Here are some of the reasons. The house is a charming adobe that is within easy walking distance of both the RR yard amenities and the downtown square. It seemed quite spacious to us, even with overnight guests. Our favorite part of the house was the covered deck, which is surrounded by beautiful flowers in the back yard. We enjoyed evening dinners and conversation out there and made frequent use of the high quality, well-maintained grill. The bedrooms had plenty of storage space and comfortable beds. The kitchen was well organized with quality utensils and none of the past renter left-behind clutter that one finds in many rentals. Throughout the house the furnishings were tasteful and reflected the owner’s personal touch. Unlike many rentals we have had in the past, this one seemed more like the owner’s home that we had been allowed to use for a month rather than a generic rental. As for the owner, she was a pleasure to deal with. Very personable and responsible. Always readily available by phone and always helpful. We’d be happy to stay there again should the occasion arise.

Enjoy Santa Fe....

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple married for 46 years. We travel extensively and particularly love Santa Fe. Clearly in the top 5 of the places on this planet we return to… Over and over again….

Meredith was kind enough to let us rent her place for the month of September, 2016. Location is superb. Trader Joe’s, two Whole Foods within walking distance. We really enjoyed strolling the neighborhood. We had a little circle, a 4 mile stroll that took us through the South Capital streets and alley’s towards the Historic east side and Canyon Road, going west to the Plaza and ultimately going south back to 1028 Don Diego. There are numerous museums, shops, bars, and restaurant stops along the way.

A 75 year old house with a vintage 1940 Chambers, Series B Gas Stove and Oven that is an absolute joy to work with. Layout of the house is very functional, a number of different spaces to read and relax. The back porch and yard are a quiet spot to reflect while watching the hummingbirds feed on the numerous different flowering plants.

Meredith was easy to work with. All things said and done, we highly recommend you stay on Don Diego. Happy Trails - Denny & Ellen - Ormond Beach, FL

As Charming as Santa Fe Can Get

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! We enjoyed every minute of the month we spent here. Everywhere you look there are lovely touches of a much-loved and well-thought-out home. It is very clean, well-organized and livable. Because we were there so long, we got to cook many meals in the roomy kitchen. For those of you who cook, Meredith has a 1930"s Chambers Gas Range- if you don't know what this is LOOK IT UP!

The beds are comfy, most of the lamps are 3-way, there are throw blankets, fans for the bedrooms. In short, she has thought of everything to make you comfortable.

The garden is breathtaking and you can have your meals alfresco. Also both Whole Foods and Trader Joe's are easy walking distance. (As is a CVS, Wells Fargo, a Credit Union, a mail store as well as restaurants.)The Farmer's Market takes place at The Railyard twice weekly, and that is also a very short walk.

We are already planning our next stay at Dona Diego!

authentic santa fe

  • 5 of 5

we were delighted with our stay at meredith's well taken-care-of old adobe home. it's quite charming (and tastefully decorated) and represents many things that attract people to santa fe while being surrounded by a beautiful garden and a peacefully quiet deck on the backside of the property. nearby shopping/restaurants and a coffee shop called dulce (very tasty european style bakery goods) added to the pleasures of our stay. the railyard district is close by and it's also not far from the old town area.

we loved meeting meredith and michael (the caretaker of the property) as they are both very nice, welcoming people, and we very much enjoyed our stay in the city different.
