Perfect Location to town
This beautiful home has all the amenities you would want.
Since the weather was nice, we spent a lot of time outside on the patio. The grounds were a little run down and not very inviting. They could definitely spruce up the patio area.
We definitely stay again.

Our family and friend had a beautiful four day stay at Encantada. The four bedrooms were perfect for our needs! The decorations were perfect for Santa Fe's New Mexico charm. All of the furniture and decorations were tastefully done, with a regional flair that I wouldn't decorate with, but enjoyed a great deal! The home was clean, the beds comfy, the kitchen stocked with everything but food and drinks, and the number of living spaces helped everyone to find their private spots. Two Casitas management company were very pleasant and accommodating. Close proximity to the Plaza made it super convenient to "drop into town" for meals, a mere two-minute drive. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone wanting to feel like they are staying close to the action without the hassle of a hotel.

Wonderful house that is walking distance to town. We had 7 people stay and the space is wonderful. The first floor bedroom was perfect for my 85 year old mother in law. The house was stocked very well and a pleasure to cook in the kitchen. I highly recommend it for large groups!

this home was perfect for our recent trip to Santa Fe. The location was great. We were able to walk a few short blocks to the plaza. With four bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms, all eight of us had plenty of room to spread out. We were pleasantly surprised with a welcome bottle of wine, and some very hot salsa and chips. We did not cook, but the kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need. It also had plenty of wine glasses! We had a problem getting the downstairs tv to work, and someone came immediately to help us get it set up. The management company for this unit goes above and beyond to be sure that you have everything that you need.

Wonderful house, great location!
Our three families (adults and kids ages 10-18) had a wonderful vacation in Santa Fe. Encantada was perfect for us. It was gorgeous, spacious and an easy walk to the plaza. Not sure how we were able to score such a great place Spring break week! Thank you to the whole Encantada team for making us feel welcome! Wed come back and stay in Encantada again.

This was my first visit to Santa Fe. I didn't know what to expect, and after several planes and a drive, I was ready to relax. When we arrived, the home was very well decorated and warm inside. As soon as we got inside, we built a fire and relaxed in the living room. This alone made it 10000 times better than a hotel. We cooked meals in the gourmet kitchen and we used the china and silverware that was in the cupboard. Everything was top-notch quality. No hotel or industry towels, shampoos, etc. Everything was as if we were staying at our own home, or that of a close friend. The personal feel of this home made our trip great, and we can't wait to go back!

After driving six hours from Denver to Santa Fe, opening the door to Encantada was like stepping into a warm embrace. We immediately knew this was the perfect base to relax and explore Santa Fe. Thoughtful touches welcomed us including a wonderful bottle of wine, blue corn tortilla chips and jar of green chilies salsa that we found on the kitchen counter. Our day starts with coffee and we werent looking forward to finding a grocery store in a new town, first thing in the next morning so we were also pleasantly surprised to find a bag of Starbucks coffee in the fridge along with sugar and creamer in one of the cabinets.
The rental management company, Two Casitas, also provided a list on the refrigerator of local restaurants and activities to explore in the area. We prefer to try local restaurants when we travel, so we ate at several on the recommended list (most were within walking distance of the house) and especially enjoyed Sazn. We also like to cook and unlike many of the rental properties weve stayed at that technically have a kitchen, but there are almost no utensils or pans to actually cook with the newly remodeled chefs kitchen at Encantada has a large island and gas stovetop, and is fully stocked with utensils, pots and a very nice set of chefs knives. There was even a blender for making our breakfast smoothies! After seeing how well equipped the kitchen was, I decided to make Tagliatelle with shrimp and a homemade pesto and it turned out great.
The rest of the house was just as nice as the kitchen - beautifully furnished in southwestern style instead of the generic hotel-grade stuff Ive seen at other rentals. There are four bedrooms, one on the first floor and three on the second. Three have en-suite bathrooms and the fourth has a bathroom just outside it. Theres also a powder room on the first floor. The master bathroom is large and also looked newly remodeled.
Theres a balcony on the second floor where you can look out at the mountains, and several sitting areas outside where you can enjoy a quiet moment to read. There are TVs and sitting areas on both floors. The wide circular staircase is the centerpiece of Encantada and very unique. The three bedrooms on the second floor and the sitting area are each located off the circular landing that surrounds the staircase. We especially enjoyed the coziness of the sitting area on the second floor. The desk located just outside the master suite provided a convenient working area, and the WIFI in the house was fast enough to support two of us video conferencing at the same time.
Location the listing said it was close to the city plaza, and it was no exaggeration it took us less than fifteen minutes to walk to Coyote Cafe. The walk to the Georgia OKeeffe Museum took about 10 minutes and is definitely worth spending an afternoon at. Leave your car(s) at the house and walk because parking near the square isnt worth the aggravation of trying to find a spot. We will definitely book Encantada again and next time were bringing our friends and family.

This house far exceeded our expectations - the size/space and beautiful new furniture, incredibly equipped kitchen, two wonderfully cozy living rooms and each bedroom and the 4 1/2 bathrooms were newly appointed, sparkling clean and every detail down to the sheets and pillows were very high quality. The location is so convenient to the Plaza, grocery stores, anything you would want to do. Loved all of the multiple patios and balconies - great for star gazing, morning coffee/breakfast or just enjoying the wonderful fresh air. This is a very high quality, beautiful home with lots of space and the gorgeous center staircase is stunning. We will definitely return to this special place!
