Rave 5 ***** reviews pour in for this delightful guest home just 1.5 miles north of the Plaza. Exquisitely decorated and boasting all the luxurious touches that add comfort and beauty, this casita is a gem! Enjoy the expansive views and spectacular sunsets while relaxing in the comfort of individual room AC or radiant heat.
An Enchanting Casita belongs to an artist, and you will appreciate the eye for color and detail the moment you enter. Blue tiles the exact shade of the Santa Fe sky . . . charming nichos bestowing blessings from the walls . . . natural light pouring in from all directions . . . This is a home that has been created with skill as well as love, and you will be charmed with the results!
The living room is soaked in sunlight, with a glossy tiled floor and a huge, inviting leather sectional sofa in front of a wood-burning kiva fireplace. Oh, all the "mod cons" are here too: an "HDTV, DVD player, air-conditioning, radiant heat -- but what you will notice is how comfortable this room makes you feel. Instead of pulling out the old cell phone to check messages, you may find yourself yearning for a quick game of backgammon or one more chapter of that book you started on the plane. Or, having settled into the sofa, you may awaken half an hour later, thoroughly refreshed! Vacation time is so much better than every other kind!
Now that you're relaxed, your plans may change. Instead of rushing out to cram in a few sights, why not spend the evening at An Enchanting Casita? The kitchen is fully equipped with sparkling stainless-steel appliances, cheery patterned tile counters, and all the dishes, utensils, gizmos, and gadgets you would need to prepare a Thanksgiving feast (let alone some simple nachos and margaritas!). Why not unpack the groceries, put on some music, and enjoy a little together time? The breakfast bar seats 4 in comfy chairs, so you don't even have to interrupt your Trivial Pursuit tournament to cook.
An Enchanting Casita has a sunny dining area with a big table that seats 6, as well as an outdoor patio table with umbrella for al fresco moments. Even in winter, the patio can be a delightful place to snuggle up, with the chiminea blazing merrily, the pinon foothills dominating the view, and a whimsical burro peeking around the corner at you. You're going to love your little adobe home-away-from-home!
Although you won't want the evening to end, the consolation is that you will get a great night's sleep at An Enchanting Casita. There are two bedrooms here, each providing ultra-comfy beds, ceiling fans, plenty of windows, and lots of storage space. The Love Love master offers a king-size bed topped with a special allergen and chemical-free pillowtop -- absolutely the last word in comfort! There is also a flat-screen TV, just in case you want to celebrate your liberation from the alarm clock by watching old movies all night.
The Sweet Dreams bedroom has a queen-sized bed amid pleasing wood furniture and southwestern-patterned rugs. The bedrooms share a full bath with both a shower and tub option. Again, all the little touches matter here, from the comfy straw-bottomed chair for the vanity to the bold blue patterned tile on the wall! And, all towels and linens are provided for both bedrooms and the bath, as well as plenty of spares.
But, beyond the cedar latillo ceilings and crafts from local artists, beyond the Native American Collections, beyond the high-speed WiFi and gas cooktop, the real treasure of An Enchanting Casita is its location. Surrounded on several sides by pinon trees, featuring a patio and side yard with stone walls and beautiful plants, this little home in the high desert is a treasure. You are just minutes from all the glories of historic Santa Fe, gallery row, the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, and the Opera House. Yet the lovely Rio Grande Valley still sports its wild beauty amid all this activity, and you can see it from the big windows and open-air patio at An Enchanting Casita.

A Magical Property!
We were so lucky to find this place. So charming and it made me smile every time we walked in the door.
Everything we needed was there and it was so enjoyable to pretend that we lived there. The owner, Billie, is a very
prolific and interesting artist. Her works are varied, and the casita is filled with them. Actually, no decorating detail
was overlooked - it really felt like a home. We also liked being a mile from town - away from the hustle bustle of
beautiful but busy Santa Fe. So - we both highly recommend staying here! Hopefully next spring we will return!

Wonderful Santa Fe home!
Our family of 4 enjoyed this beautiful home for a week of adventures around Santa Fe. The home is close to Santa
Fe (a 5 minute drive into town) and has wonderful views of the surrounding area. It was full of light and also full of
beautiful artwork. We appreciated the lovely gift basket of wine, fruit and coffee upon check in as well as the tips of
favorite restaurants left by our gracious hosts. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to
others looking for a beautiful home base for exploring the Santa Fe area.

Best value in Santa Fe
"An Enchanting Casita" is an appropriate description for this rental. I lived in Santa Fe for 11 years so I know the
area. This is my first time back in 20 years and this rental property is perfect for a couple or 4 people (although
there is only one bathroom). The furnishings and art work are what you would find in an upscale home in Santa Fe.
The owners have gone out of their way to make this rental a fantastic Santa Fe experience. I would highly
recommend this rental property for any visitors to Santa Fe. The casita will exceed your expectations. Outstanding
in all regards. Probably decorated better than most people would have in their own house!!

Everything about it was outstanding. The casita was a perfect size, decorated impeccably, peaceful and serene
with wonderful views and dramatic sunsets. The welcome basket with fresh fruit, delicious home made banana nut

Best Kept Secret
A friend and I stayed here and absolutely loved it! Not right in the center of town but just a very short drive to the
Plaza which was great. This is a lovely rental. I would highly recommend it if you're traveling to Santa Fe. - July 2016, Donna R., Yukon, OK
