The casita is spacious and well laid out for two couples. There is certainly no shortage of decor...virtually every surface reminds you that you are in Santa Fe. Interesting piecing together the history of the house from the previous guest comments and memorabilia in the front bedroom. Commenting on the key points to a good stay. The beds are comfy and we loved the linens. The location is perfect. The neighborhood is quiet. Minor quibble - why conditioner and not shampoo? When not sight seeing, we enjoyed time on the back patio. Perhaps the property is in between gardeners? The flower beds would benefit from some general upkeep and there is a large dead tree in the middle of the yard. We were also curious why the side courtyard had been completely neglected.
The most helpful member of the team was the caretaker, who went far out of his way, traveling to RadioShack and returning to correct a problem with the sound system. For the negatives, Cowboy On The Acequia was noticeably lacking in drinking glassware, wireless internet was not working, and the sound system was in disrepair. Beyond these missing amenities, this home is extremely private, charming, cozy and comfortable with a wonderfully relaxing back yard and garden.

Loved the home -- a southwest disneyland for adults! Only wish an introduction to the home would have been provided: where the amenities are, when best to contact maintenance, what about housekeeping? Lots of questions to which the answers should have been provided - in person - up front.
House located a block off canyon road near all of the great galleries. Nice yard with outdoor fireplace. Outdoor grill and washer/dryer. Kitchen is nicely equipped. Firewood supplied on site. Parking is limited and can be messy if wet weather is present. Perfect for 2 couples or a family with kids. Walk to nearby Downtown Subscription coffee shop (2 blocks down and right on Garcia) and just 10 minutes to the plaza. Try Kakawa just down the road if you like chocolate. Try Maria's for margaritas and a lunch or dinner trip to rancho de chimayo is well worth the drive. breakfast at Pasqual's and pizza from Upper Crust (they deliver).
