Desert Sky is a sweet retreat perfectly located for your upcoming visit to Santa Fe, only 14 minutes (.7 miles) from the Plaza. The attention to detail the owners took shows the love they have of this newly remodeled home. They added gorgeous hand-painted and carved doors to the original adobe home, and selected one of a kind furnishing including high-end antique furniture and artwork. Desert Sky is perfect for a couple or two friends who prefer to have their own bedrooms and not sleep on a sleeper sofa. There are two patios-- one of which is completely enclosed-- making this a great dog-friendly home. You will be right across from the Santa Fe River Park and can follow that directly down to the Plaza and Canyon Road, passing first through the Rail Yard district. The living room features an authentic kiva fireplace, wood beam vigas, a comfortable seating area for four with a leather sofa and a flat-screen TV. HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, and Starz. The living room opens to the dining room and kitchen, which leads to the second patio-- making it perfect to prepare an outdoor meal. The kitchen has high-end appliances, lovely wooden cabinets, granite counters, and a dishwasher. Each of the two bedrooms has a queen size bed. The bathroom has stunning Mexican tile and is situated between the bedrooms in a Jack and Jill layout. Each bedroom is equipped with air conditioning, ceiling fans, and plenty of closet space. Radiant heat and window unit A/Cs. Small all-in-one washer/dryer combo.

My family stayed in this home during spring break. It was my kids' first time seeing snow and we spent a good deal of our time in the mountains skiing. The house was in a great location, right across the street from a narrow park, and within walking distance of downtown Santa Fe. The house was clean and well stocked.

We had a wonderful 5 days at Two Casitas. The location is great, an easy 10 minute walk to the Plaza and even closer to some great restaurants. The casita itself is beautifully and tastefully furnished. The owners were extremely accommodating in resolving a wifi problem expediently. We highly recommend Two Casitas as a place to stay while visiting Santa Fe.

Location, location, location and great service!!! Beautiful, historic adobe home within walking distance to the plaza and Railyard area. Great restaurants and shopping close by. The home is furnished comfortably with gorgeous southwest art. It is spotless and well stocked. The customer service provided by our host was amazing as she quickly responded to our requests. This home is spacious with well appointed outdoor areas for dining and relaxing in the southwest sunshine. We look forward to returning and staying at Wendy's casita in beautiful Santa Fe.

This casita is decorated so comfortable and beautifully. The floor plan provides nice flow and is equipped with everything we possibly need. The location next to the river and a shaded green riverside trail is quite yet convenient. We enjoy very much the staying. Shu July 2016

Anonymous on Homeaway Submitted: May 21, 2016 Stayed: May 2016 I travelled with my cousin to Santa Fe for a week holiday and it was the first time either of us rented a vacation property. The online photos accurately depict how cozy and well appointed this two bedroom casita is. Located behind the owner's home walking distance to town, it was a quiet and relaxing environment. Everything from high end coffee to corn chips and green chile salsa made us feel welcome. Plenty of towels, and all the other necessaries typically provided by a hotel were in good supply. The home owners were lovely people who you could tell genuinely wanted to make our Santa Fe Trip as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. For the two of us, this home was the ideal rental!

Communication was very easy and timely with Wendy. This is a compact, but smartly designed casita and the description is accurate. It was a perfect size for me and my friend. We had our own space and enjoyed having a kitchen, porch and living room. The attention to detail at the casita was great and it feels very Santa Fe. The location was is also good. We could walk to the Plaza, Rail Yard district and Canyon Road galleries. It is also close to the highways if you are traveling outside of Santa Fe.

We had a terrific time staying in Santa Fe at Desert Sky! We loved that the location was so easily walkable to great restaurants, the farmer's market, museums, parks and shopping. The casita was not only comfortable but beautifully decorated. We did quite a bit of cooking and the kitchen was well appointed with top of the line everything. Little details like fresh flowers and a bottle of wine upon our arrival made us feel very special. Would definitely recommend to friends.
