Santa Fe Digs

My family and I had a wonderful time vacationing in Santa Fe this summer.  We stayed in some real good digs!  A great vacation rental home - called Capitol Casa.  It's an authentic, updated 1920's adobe, just about 3 blocks from the historic Plaza and a 5 minute walk from Canyon Road, yet on a quiet and comfortable residential street.  The short walk to museums, galleries, shops and restaurants (yet having the convenience of a full kitchen, luxuries of home, private, walled patio with hot tub, grill...) makes this place a real winner.

The big, breezy  front porch has an old-fashioned glider, antique bench, and patio chairs - enough seating for 10.

The home is beautifully furnished with a tasteful mix of neat antiques and plush sofas.  Richly colored Oriental rugs brighten the oak floors throughout.

 This  double chaise was "the" spot for  my son and his wife - they loved it.

 The table expands  for a large group, and the home is stocked with table service for 17 including bar glasses, tablecloths, place mats, napkins, and candles.We had fun setting  a colorful table with china and serving pieces.

    Original art by New Mexico artists and fun Southwest artifacts are on display throughout. These flowers are real - we didn't realize that - and discovered it on Day #4 - and promptly gave them a big drink. This cabinet housed the stereo system and had a nice selection of tunes.

Our family of 8 LOVED Capitol Casa! We give it 5 stars.  If you re heading to Santa Fe - look into it!
