With first class amenities, utopian patio spaces and a great location, Casa Estrella is an exquisite New Mexico vacation home rental in Santa Fe. The home is a lovingly, restored historic adobe in the heart of the Historic Eastside of Santa Fe, at the end of a private drive surrounded by other period adobe and Territorial homes. The finest galleries and restaurants of Canyon Road are only a five minute walk away. Stroll to the Plaza and the Governors Palace in fifteen minutes. Explore the four world class museums on Museum Hill within 1.3 miles. It is less than six miles to the Santa Fe Opera and minutes from the new Railyard arts and enterta...inment district. This authentic Pueblo Revival casita has been totally redone over the past two years and has been furnished with new and antique furnishings and stainless steel appliances in a contemporary New Mexico style. There are double-adobe walls, 9-foot beamed ceilings, hand-troweled diamond plaster walls, skylights, wide-plank pine and white oak floors, and Saltillo tile throughout. French doors in the kitchen lead to an outdoor patio dining area and the gardens. Warm yourself by the kiva fireplace in the living room on chilly Santa Fe nights. There is a completely equipped modern kitchen, and the dining table seats six. The two lovely bedrooms include a master suite with a California King bed, dressing area and bath plus a guest bedroom with a King bed and shower bath. The house has a full-size stacking washer-dryer in the utility area. There are 3 wall mounted refrigerated air conditioners mounted in the kitchen and each bedroom. Casa Estrella is filled with signed Native American art and is surrounded by lovely garden areas on four sides. Relax to the sounds of a Stone Forest millstone fountain and discover Sanctuary, an original sculpture by renowned artist Bill Worrell in the garden. The landscaping is softly illuminated for truly enchanting Santa Fe evenings. The gardens are perfect for outdoor entertaining or a romantic evening for two. There are three separate outdoor areas for dining, cocktails or just enjoying a rain shower or snowfall. A lounge area shaded by a large Russian olive tree has a cocktail table, seating for four and a chimenea. Enjoy your meals, cocktails and star gazing around the garden dining table for six. In season, savor fruit from apple, apricot, peach and plum trees in the gardens. The house and gardens are completely enclosed by adobe walls ad coyote fences. Aspen trees line the drive along the outer wall of the casita. This very popular property is perfect for one or two couples! Permit#:13-00118458 Excellent, excellent, excellent!

Absolutely outstanding place. Wonderful art and great thoughtful touches throughout. Very nice of you to have the champagne. We enjoyed our stay immensely. Can't think of any way you could possibly improve. Thanks for allowing us in your home. We hope to do this again. Great yard by the way. Brian, Geri, Sandy & Al
We were exceptionally pleased by how the house was decorated and furnished. We particularly liked the heated floor in the master bathroom. The location is also excellent, being well off the main street but only a 5 min walk to Canyon Rd. The only problem was the Kiva fireplace did not have a good draft and therefore created smoky conditions.
Very nice property with great outdoor space, sculpture and water feature.
Only negatives that we found were that the internet connection is located in the second bedroom and one must sit on the bed or stand bedside to use.
Also, while there are plenty of towels, there was only one washcloth provided in each bathroom.
With those minor exceptions, the little house was nicely decorated, well equipped, and had a great location.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
