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.

Destino Santa Fe is a cooperative, private group of homeowners and we are proud to represent Casa Tórtola.

My family and I enjoyed this home very much. For us, it was perfect in every way and we would rent it again for certain.

Perfect rental house

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Casa Tórtola was excellent. The setup with the master bedroom on one side of the house and the other two bedrooms on the other side was helpful. Kitchen is well-equipped (thanks for having a regular coffee maker and a Keurig!). The whole house was clean and nicely decorated. The separate enormous living room and media room made the house feel really spacious. There is a lot of outdoor space for dining and sitting in the back yard as well as seating on the front balcony for watching the sunset. There are thoughtful little touches throughout; my favorites were the motion sensor lights on the stairs and the labels on the lights. Location is close to everything but on a quiet private street. Just a heads up that there is no shampoo, soap, etc., so future guests will need to remember to bring their own. Thanks for a wonderful Thanksgiving week!

Very nice property, immaculate, close to the square, great views from cozy patio

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable and spacious! Owner provided very helpful info on restaurants and attractions which we took advantage of. The property is in a quiet newer neighborhood on a hill which provided pleasant breezes throughout the home. We had a variety of weather from warm and sunny to wet and windy and even glimpsed a rainbow from the back deck. The only things I would have changed were a more comfortable mattress on the bed in the second bedroom and a chaise lounge on the back porch would have been welcome.

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!

Owner's Response: These guests were everything you could hope for! We appreciate the great review! As an aside, their original stay was for 3 months, but they extended to almost six months - into June 2017.

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.
