Santa Fe, “The City Different” is a favorite vacation spot for visitors world-wide. The food, the ambiance, the art and culture make it a place to return to time after time. And people do just that.
Luckily, Santa Fe has a plethora of great places to stay while in town, from the Don Gaspar Inn to La Posada. But if you’re looking for a little something different try out a rental property. A house. Some place you and your family or friends can spread out and feel at home.
One house in particular stands out, 3,000 square-foot Casa de Olivia, offered up by Kokopelli Real Estate and Property Management.
One of the main standouts of Casa de Olivia is the privacy of the walled grounds around the house. Gardens are beautifully manicured, the grass plush and green, and the outdoor fireplace big enough for a crowd to gather in front of on cool fall nights. There’s a big, beautiful porch, lots of seating around the lawn, and even a private outdoor seating area outside the breakfast nook and the master bedroom. Outside Casa de Olivia is pretty wonderful, but you’ll want to hang around inside as well.
This spacious adobe home was originally built in the 1870’s, but was completely restored and remodeled in 2007. Decorative blue and yellow tiles add color to the kitchen and colorful Mexican-tiled sinks and an extra punch to two of the three bathrooms. Furnishings are understated and comfortable, but with an elegant, classy flair. The house has everything you could possibly need from towels and toilet paper, cookware and wine fridge, to comfortable lounging and big windows.
Plan for a quiet getaway for a few or up to ten at Casa de Olivia. With four bedrooms and a pull out couch, guests can spread out and have privacy. One bedroom is great for kids, with two twin beds and a full bed in one room. The three bathrooms and two eating areas help make it easy to accommodate a crowd.
Two of the bedrooms, one of the baths, the washer and dryer, two of the five televisions, and a small gathering area are all located downstairs in the basement. Be advised that there are stairs inside and out of the home.
Casa de Olivia fits the bill for location, location, location. It’s located less than a block off historic Canyon Road, one of the most artistic walks in the country. Plus it’s a reasonable walk or short drive to the Plaza.
Everything about the setting and the home itself is meditative, relaxing, and beautiful. And to top it off, it’ll become home instead of yet another hotel room.
All in all, the home is perfect for entertaining, family gatherings, and even weddings and dogs.
