About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath

If you’re searching for a home away from home in Santa Fe that is within walking distance of the Plaza AND enjoys fabulous views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, this is the place for you.

Located just behind Fort Marcy Park and Community Complex, Casa Tórtola (Turtle Dove) is a three-bedroom, two-bath home with wonderful views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains from almost every living area. It is a light-filled home, tastefully decorated with upper range decor incorporating some traditional Santa Fe touches such as the wood-burning Kiva fireplace in the spacious living/dining open space.

The living room has plenty of space for lounging or entertaining guests. Behind it, the dining table comfortably seats six, and directly adjacent is a dedicated TV room with a 60” screen. If you’re looking forward to an outdoor retreat, there is a large patio off the living room with entertaining space comprised of lounge seating as well a outdoor dining for six, and of course views to the mountains.

The kitchen has new appliances including a gas stove and all kitchen amenities one might need to whip up a treat. Along side the kitchen, a cozy dinette looks out onto the back patio.

Up a partial staircase you’ll find the king master suite complete with its own kiva fireplace, desk area, and mountain views.

At the other end of the home, also up a few stairs, are the two guest rooms, which share a bath. One has two twin beds, while the other is a queen bedroom with walkout deck providing mountain views and views of the City.

An added bonus of Casa Tórtola is that it is just up the hill from the Fort Marcy Park Complex, an excellent place to walk a dog, or take advantage of the exercise complex, Olympic size pool, and classes such as Yoga and Pilates.

Amenities include a double garage, washer and dryer, all linens, DirecTV, and WIFI.

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had the good fortune to experience an extended stay at Casa Tortola. From the moment we walked in, we felt completely at home. The house is beautifully decorated and the view of the Sangres is stunning. Also delightful sunset views from the deck off the guest bedroom. Everything we needed was already provided from kitchen goods to abundant linens to comfortable beds and well arranged conversation areas. Within walking distance of the Plaza and all the great amenities of Ft. Marcy Rec area. The leasing agent and property owner/manager are gems and believe you'll find them extremely helpful and accommodating. We highly recommend Casa Tortola and will be back soon!

What we've been looking for.

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to Santa Fe for the month of September for the last 18 years. Casa Tortola has everything we want. We're from Arizona and enjoy being able to cook, sit and sip wine outside. This patio is perfect and the master suite is great. We'll be back in 2017.

Casa Tortola

  • 4 of 5

I rented this house for 2 months this summer. My husband and friends enjoyed the house and location very very much. About 5 minutes from everything and the Marcy Park and fitness center is a short walk away. We loved our housekeeper. The owner is wonderful and very accommodating. We have rented it for 2 mos. next summer. View from Patio is spectacular. Nice layout.

Spacious, clean, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Casa Tortola during the week between Christmas and New Years and chose it partly for its convenience to skiing. We were very impressed with the house. It was spacious and nicely decorated...I loved that there was a beautiful Christmas tree in the family room! It made it feel like "home". Most importantly, it was very clean. The layout of the home is great and my boys loved the TV room. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. The property manager is very nice and responsive. I left a few items in a dresser drawer when we left and she sent them back to me, which I really appreciated. We would love to come stay at Casa Tortola again!

Wonderful Family Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We're seasoned travelers from Austin, TX, and want to share what a wonderful vacation/family get together we had staying at Casa Tortola in Santa Fe. Our family including our son and family (2 young grandchildren) and small family dog just loved this property. It is located in the hills above Santa Fe with great views, is within walking distance of the downtown area, and all it offers. More importantly though is the house itself, a very functional family layout...an open floor plan with lots of windows to enjoy the views, a warm fireplace, generous dining area , game & TV rooms plus separate bedroom suite accommodations at opposite ends of La Casa so just right for grandparents on one side, and our son and his family with their privacy on the other. Outside, the patios provide for comfort & great views, And you're within walking distance of a pleasant park just down the hill and/or in an area friendly for some bicycling. During the winter the ski mountain is just 15 miles away, and in the summer clearly convenient to enjoy the Opera and related cultural activities.

Marian, the owner. has done a terrific job in making her property warm, comfortable, and don't see how one could be disappointed-- "5 Thumbs Up for Casa Tortola"! KLBAustin
