Perfect for family reunions and big groups, Casa Governor has all the latest technology and luxe furnishings you love, plus outdoor beauty to spare. Roomy, relaxed, and just minutes from the Plaza!
High-speed WiFi is only the beginning of this home's connectivity. The numerous HDTVs receive Comcast cable, and music lovers can access Sirius satellite radio. Whether you need to get a little work done on vacation, keep up with friends and family who weren't lucky enough to join you at Casa Governor, or simply enjoy your favorite entertainment, you'll find it easy to access everything in air-conditioned comfort here!
Of course, part of your goal in coming to Santa Fe may be to get off the grid for a while, and Casa Governor is ideal for that, too. Snuggle into this family home and enjoy its stunning wooded views, cozy fireplaces (including two in the dual master suites!), more than ample sitting area, and huge outdoor patio for dining and relaxing!
From the moment you step into the enormous common area, you know that Casa Governor is something special. High ceilings with beautiful wood patterning and exposed beams, long windows, gorgeous New Mexico tiled floors in warm southwestern tones, and several distinct conversation areas -- this is a living room made for a crowd, yet intimate enough for everyone in the group to pursue their own interests. Downtime never looked so appealing!
Choose from multiple comfy places to sit here: the cluster of couches and footstools by the huge flat-screen in one corner; the group of overstuffed easy chairs bathed in sunlight beside the bookshelves in the recessed bay; the nap-worthy long sofa beside a coffee table; or even the table and chairs tucked into a quiet nook as if just waiting for a deck of cards, jigsaw puzzle, or board game. This is a space where the kids can build with Legos, the sports fans can cheer at the big game on TV, the novel reader can finish that final chapter, and the tired driver can sneak an afternoon snooze -- all at once, and all together in the same room, without bothering each other!
At the far end of this huge area is a kiva fireplace, glass doors leading to the patio, and a lovely dining table. What a nice place to begin the day, nursing that first cup of coffee while birds twitter in the trees around the edges of the property. Spectacular sunsets will close out your day here, too, with tons of activities and fun in between.
The kitchen, like everywhere else at Casa Governor, is ready for a crowd. Let the kids perch on the breakfast bar stools, enjoying waffles and running their cars and trucks along the counter, while the grownups gather around the table and the chef in the group concocts something spectacular on the gas range. The double-door fridge, big dishwasher, and full complement of countertop appliances -- from microwave and toaster to coffeemaker -- help get your gang up and on their way as fast as they like. But if a family meal at home using the fine produce from the Farmer's Market is called for, the kitchen is a one-stop chef's delight, stocked with all the equipment, gadgets, cookware, and dishes you could ask for. Thanksgiving in Santa Fe, anyone?!
And when that feast (or takeout!) is ready, consider the outside patio as a venue as well. There's electric lighting out here, a huge kiva fireplace, and plenty of seating, both covered and uncovered. No matter what the weather, you will be comfortable on this massive two-sided patio with wooded views!
The four bedrooms at Casa Governor also cater to your comfort. There are two master suites, both with king-sized beds, fireplaces, private flat-screen TVs, gorgeous windows, and en-suite baths with tub and shower option. The guest room has a queen-sized bed, and the kids' room offers 2 twins, a TV, desk, rocker chair with footstool, and patio access. A third full bath accommodates everyone in your group, and a big laundry room with sink and counter space helps keep all the ski and hiking gear in order.
Casa Governor is just 3.5 miles from the Plaza and all the downtown sights of Santa Fe. It's near to a world-class spa, Ski Santa Fe, and spectacular hiking, birding, and nature viewing. Whether you want to go to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, the Opera House, the Canyon Road galleries, of all of the above, be sure to come home every night to the comfort and beauty of Casa Governor.
