"Casa de Alma was exactly as advertised, and we LOVED it. It was just as it was on the web. Our "girls' birthday week" was perfect, from our day at Ten Thousand Waves (the best spa day ever) to our trip to Taos Pueblo, to our strolls to The Plaza and the many museums. We managed to contribute to the Santa Fe economy as well. At the end of the fun-filled days, it was so nice to return to our beautiful, inviting home and just relax. We had a wonderful time. I would not hesitate to recommend Casa de Alma to anyone wanting a fabulous home to enjoy in Santa Fe." -- Dot D., November 2014

"We absolutely loved your home and had such a great time. We lunched at The Compound, had dinner at El Farol and shopped til' we dropped! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We were so comfortable and it was the perfect place for old friends to reconnect. Oh, and we bought art, a lot of art! We hope to be back and we would love to stay at Casa de Alma again." -- Channa B., November, 2014

"I rented this house for 9 days in June and July, 2013. I can't say enough good things about it. First I stayed with my husband, then with him and his parents, then with my sister and girlfriends. The art, furnishings, finish out, and attention to detail are all just wonderful and beautiful. The location is central yet quiet. About a 15 minute walk to the Plaza, 3 minutes to Canyon Road. Both new and old owners were great to work with. Can't wait to stay there again. Recommended for: Age 55+, Pet-friendly, Adventure Seekers, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Sightseeing, People with Disabilities, Romantic Getaway" -- Lynne R., 2013

"For our very first visit to Santa Fe EVER, we wanted a special place, with the right vibe. Casa De Alma fit the bill perfectly. Great location! A short stroll to Canyon, and convenient to everything. The house is gorgeous, decorated beautifully, and just the right size and layout. Very comfortable, and relaxing. I look forward to returning!" -- Leah R., 2013

"From the moment we arrived until we departed, Casa De Alma provided us the perfect Santa Fe getaway. We have stayed at other properties of the owners so we knew we had a treat to look forward to. We stepped into the front door and were amazed at the wonderful home and furnishings. The attention to detail was second to none from the fabulous antiques to the luxurious bedding. The welcome basket full of yummy treats and the gourmet kitchen and pantry stocked with essentials to get you started were a real welcome. The location is amazing. We enjoyed many walks on Canyon Road which is just blocks from the house. Bring your pocket book because the art is amazing. The Plaza is also a nice walk from the house. There are so many things to within walking distance without even having to take your car. The restaurants in the area are also amazing. Every meal we had was a culinary gem. We stayed in one night and cooked and that was also wonderful because we loved being at the house. We are already checking our calendar for when we can return to Casa De Alma. We know that fall in Santa Fe is just as beautiful as this gorgeous spring week has been. We will be back. Thank You for a beautiful get away." -- Anna B., 2013

"Our first visit to Santa Fe was filled with many great experiences - fabulous weather, fantastic food, beautiful adobe architecture, art galleries galore, shopping of every kind..... how fortunate we were to discover Casa de Alma!!! This spectacular home gives you a feeling of actually living the high end Santa Fe lifestyle. Everything about it is perfect down to the smallest detail. The interior is exactly as depicted - only better! The beds are so comfortable... the very private courtyard was perfect for breakfast outside. Close to everything, it's the perfect location for experiencing all that Santa Fe has to offer. We've rented villas and houses around the world and this is a cut above. We'll be back!" -- Robert M., 2013

"We’ve been to Casa De Alma several times in the last five years and it was as wonderful as ever! Two of us couples stayed here for a week and again, it did not disappoint us. The online photos are gorgeous but nothing prepares you for how wonderful it is in person!
Everything has been carefully thought of in this home, from beautiful antiques and artwork to luxury linens and fully-equipped kitchen. It is also meticulously clean!
We walked everywhere and had a great time exploring Canyon Road and the Plaza. When we returned after sightseeing and eating our way through town, we enjoyed the Kiva fireplaces, good friends, and the authentic ambiance of an exceptional adobe home.
The new owners are wonderful, as were the previous ones! We've rented other vacation homes and we are spoiled with Casa De Alma!" -- Jack E., 2013

2012

"Casa De Alma was incredible! We came to Santa Fe for a long weekend get away with our good friends to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. We absolutely loved Santa Fe, as well knew we would. but Casa de Alma was by far the BEST part of our weekend. The house is perfect in every way: the welcome basket, the gorgeous decor, the luxurious linens, the kiva fireplaces - all of it. And it was perfectly located close into everything. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants a high-end get away." -- Cindy C., 2012

"Beautiful house with a real southwestern feel. So many lovely details. Walking distance to Canyon for the art galleries and the plaza area for a longer hike. This is the one of the best house I have ever rented. You don't feel like you are in a rental house you feel like you are home." Dara, Redwood City, CA, 2012

"We are 6 lovely, artistic, diverse and opinionated women and we arrived at Casa De Alma after a very full day of travel and sightseeing. As we walked through the front door the simultaneous "oohhs and ahhhs" from all of us continued as we walked from room to room, each claiming our own territory ---and all of us equally happy with our choice. The listing description is very accurate and did not disappoint--besides the fabulous decorating, the house was exceptionally clean and well maintained with a location that is close to all but yet very private. The proximity to Canyon Rd and the numerous galleries and restaurants (very fond of El Faro) and the roomy parking area for the van we rented -made our girls 4day getaway easy and very special. We all highly recommend this rental and would gladly rent again there. Thanks". Mary, Carla, Pat, Marilyn, Judi, Bo, 2012, Escondido CA

"Casa De Alma exceeded my expectations in all dimensions. The description and photos on the web were accurate as far as they went, but mere words and photos could not capture the ambience of that property in that setting. In the words of my 11 year old grandson, "it was awsome". The location was just about perfect. Cayon road was literally 2 blocks away and the central plaza was an easy and interesting walk. The whole house was well equiped and lovingly cared for. It was obvious that it was someone's home, not someone's investment.
The rental process was flawless and exactly as agreed. The only surprise was that the cleaning crew had activated the alarm before they left but the owner was readily available by phone so it was resolved. I would definetly recommend this most highly to my good friends but not just anyone. I want to be able to go there again." George & Linda, Austin, Texas, 2012

2011

"Casa de Alma is a true southwest gem. The home is so nicely appointed and provides all the comforts of home. The beds were unbelievably comfortable and the terrace provided a really special place for evening wine and conversation. We loved the short walk to the coffee shop in the morning and Canyon Road in the afternoon. What a fantastic place for our family to meet and reconnect. We rent many vacation homes, and this one truly ranks among the best ~ we will definitely be back!" Ann R, Arizona, 2011

"It was just as nice as it looks in the pictures. It was a great place to get together with friends. We could easily stroll over to Canyon Road and around town. We also really enjoyed the patio which was a great place to have coffee in the morning." Friends from Richmond, VA, 2011

"When my old college room mate and her husband wanted to run away with us for spring break we decided to escape to Santa Fe. We were fortunate enough to discover Casa de Alma thru a friend. All four of us came away from our Santa Fe adventure with fond memories. The Casa was well equiped for all our needs. Detailed descriptions of the house operation were available. Kitchen was fully equiped and there were plenty of extra linens. We enjoyed the bedroom and bath layout-great for two couples. Three couples could stay easily. In the evening, after exploring the town and surrounding National Parks we had plenty of room to cook meals, play cards or enjoy a delightful Sam Elliott movie. Plenty of outdoor space was provided. The lively arts scene and great restaurants could keep a visitor busy for weeks. We especially enjoyed eating at the Roadhouse and the Tune Up Cafe. Sorry we only had four days. This property will be easy to reccomend. Bacause it is within walking distance of the Canyon Art Scene, this would be a perfect art lovers retreat". JVB, Bainbridge Island, WA, 2011

"Beautiful hacienda-style Santa Fe home in perfect location, two blocks off Canyon Road on very quiet residential street. Ten minute walk to center of town. Three very large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, all decorated in traditional Southwest style. Very comfortable, with large kitchen, lovely, large back patio, every amenity for a wonderful stay! Went with our teenage children and everyone loved the comfort and style of the house. Everything was very clean, beds comfortable, large TV's in every room. Thanks Casa De Alma for a wonderful vacation!" The H. Family, 2011

2010

"Casa de Alma exceded our expectations in every way. The warmth and coziness of this beautiful place made us all feel as if it were our own home away from home. The house was pristine, decorated in fine taste and yet homey and welcoming. We especially enjoyed lighting a blazing fire in the kiva each evening before dinner, and settling back with a glass of wine to enjoy our surroundings. The memories will be with us for years to come." D. Lynn, Laguna Beach, CA, 2010

"We were so glad to have discovered Casa de Alma on our last trip to Santa Fe. We shared it with another couple -- plenty of room for everyone to have privacy and nice spaces to be together. The house was perfectly maintained and very clean. The owners were helpful and professional. We loved being so close to Canyon Road where we ate at Geronimo's and El Farol, both wonderful food. Next time we'd love to come back for Christmas, which we understand is a most incredible time to visit Santa Fe." Maureen & Tom, Denver, CO, 2010

"My wife and I thought this home was not only comfortable and clean but also a good value compared to other places we've stayed in Santa Fe. The owners have thought of every detail. It is the "top of the line" without being "over the top." Very nice place to stay, convenient to Canyon Rd and Plaza. Authentic decor. Perfect neighborhood. We discovered Chocolate Maven Restaurant on this trip...great place for breakfast or lunch -- off the beaten path. We'll be back soon, we hope." Jack, Austin, TX, 2010

"Our family stayed at Casa De Alma over the holidays and had a simply divine vacation. It was our first trip to Santa Fe -- a magical time to visit. The house came with a beautifully decorated Christmas tree and other festive touches. We couldn't have asked for more. Our kids were bewitched with the fariolitas, the snow, and the many great children's activities. This property is spotlessly clean and well-maintained. We would recommend it most highly." The Huydson's, Atherton, CA, 2010

"My husband and I couldn't have found a more perfect place in Santa Fe. After discovering Casa De Alma, we've decided that hotels are a thing of our past. So lovely to be in a real home in a real neighborhood -- to have a patio and a kitchen, and all the amenities of home. This casa is everything it claims to be and more. The decor is smashing. No glitz. Just comfort and charm. Don't miss Museum Hill -- filled with fabulous museums and also a great lunch spot. We can't wait to come back." Cogri Family, Texas, 2010

"We didn't know that Casa De Alma meant "House of Soul" until we checked in and read the house info booklet. Soul was exactly what this place had -- from the authentic southwest decor to the cozy feel of earthy plaster walls to the kiva fiireplaces. We had a marvelous stay, enjoying every moment of our time here. We loved sitting out on the patio, soaking in the sunshine. We especially loved coming back here after a day of art galleries and shopping. A lovely, lovely spot in Santa Fe! Close to everything! Located in safe neighborhood, which was important to us." Marcie & Friends, California, 2010

"Perfect location. Right around the corner from the art galleries lining Canyon Road, an easy stroll to all the attractions in downtown Santa Fe. Park your car, settle in, and soak up the ambiance. Santa Fe is a place you really have to experience in person to fully appreciate, pictures just don't do it justice, and there is no better way to experience it than by strolling through its neighborhoods. The house is beautifully decorated in Santa Fe style, cozy kiva fireplaces, ceramics, al fresco dining on the patio. All the amenities if you just looking for a place to rest and relax and a nice library of guidebooks if you are looking for a more active vacation.For an enjoyable day trip, check out Bandelier National Monument. Here you can see cliff dwellings, hike to the Rio Grande, there is even a waterfall! Well worth a visit."

"We stayed here with 2 couples and had a marvelous time. After a day of sightseeing, we all agreed Casa de Alma was the perfect oasis in which to retreat for an evening in front of the fireplaces. Everything has been thought of here -- from the well-stocked kitchen to the detail of the decor in each room. The location is wonderful -- at the end of a quiet street within walking distance to Canyon Rd. and Plaza. We never used a car. Don't miss the Downtown Subscription coffee shop, a few blocks away. It is not only a great place to get morning coffee but they sell every conceivable newspaper including NYTimes. And its a favorite of all the locals. Makes you feel right at home." Dos Amigos, Santa Barbara, CA, 2010

"I've stayed at Casa De Alma three times now so I guess it's time to write a review. The good news is that it is the best place I've found to stay in Santa Fe. The bad news is that it is getting so popular that I have to plan ahead to stay there. The owners are delightful, honest, and truly nice people who care about the house, keep it immaculate, and charge a more than fair price for what you get. I particularly love the fully-equipped kitchen. And, well, what isn't there to like about this place! Just look at the photos! It's a great place to stay!" Rick & Ella, Denver, CO 2010

"Not sure what else to say other than to agree with what other reviewers have already said! You won't go wrong staying at Casa De Alma, particularly if you enjoy beauty, warmth, authentic southwest ambiance, and the comforts of home. The owners have thought of everything, including robes, nice linens, and great amenities. Since we didn't have the greatest of weather, we were perfectly content snuggling up in front of the fireplace with good books." Minneapolis, MN, 2010

"My wife and I have rented homes in a number of regions in the country in this price-range. By far, Casa de Alma has been the most outstanding, both in its quality and location. While the home has 3 bedrooms, it wasn't so big that we didn't feel right at home. We particularly liked the kiva fireplaces at night and the patio by day. The patio is in a sunny location and even in the cooler periods, it is relaxing for a cup of coffee and reading the newspaper. Everything about this place was perfect, including the owner's response when a problem occurred with the phone/internet. Apparently, a fairly major issue with the phone company caused the DSL to be down for 3 days. The owner did everything they could to assist since I had some business emails that had to get out. In the end, they had a staff person come by with a nice gift certificate to a local restaurant to make up for the inconvenience of having to go to the local library to access internet. We thought that was pretty amazing and kind -- well beyond the type of service and thoughtfulness you expect these days. We highly recommend this Casa." - Washington D.C., 2010

"I stayed at Casa De Alma with two of my long-time friends, both interior designers. We chose it because it looks fabulous in the photos and reviews were great. We were not disappointed! The home is beautifully furnished, yet cozy and warm -- full of southwest charm and ambiance. And it was meticulously clean. Each bedroom was a delight with a TV in each room. The neighborhood, too, is gorgeous -- tree-lined street in the middle of the most beautiful area of Santa Fe. We walked everywhere. There is no doubt we'll be back and would recommend Casa De Alma to couples, families, groups of friends. We thought it was a great value for what we would have paid for hotel or B & B accommodations." Friends from Santa Barbara, CA, 2010

We leave tomorrow for Crested Butte but we wished we were staying here! Thank you again for opening your home and us."
NT – Austin, TX 2009

Thank you! Thank you!"
JJJ&C, Florida, Kentucky 2009

"We had a wonderful time at Casa De Alma. 4 ladies vacationing together. There was lots of space to both gather and enjoy privacy. The decor was adorable. We are decorators so we really enjoyed all the detail that was taken to give an authentic adobe home it's due. The layout was perfect. The home was very well maintained and we enjoyed the lovely outdoor space." CH and friends, Marco Island, FL, 2009)

"We had a wonderful 3-day stay in this lovely home.

My wife was extremely pleased that you have every conceivable tool in order to execute life (laundry detergent, good appliances, etc.) When going away with our kids it is always nice to have some meals at home and your home is just so dam comfortable to be in. My wife made the comment that she would like to go back with her friends for her 50th birthday. If that comes to fruition, I will definitely be contacting you. Thank you for a marvelous stay! (MT- Oak Brook, IL. 2009)

"What everyone has been saying is absolutely true. It's an amazing place! 'Casa de Alma?' No. 'Casa de Awesome.' We loved the house. Loved Santa Fe. And the skiers and boarders in the family loved the mountain. Hope to return one day soon." (PB Family, Toronto, Canada, 2009)

My introduction to Santa Fe was my introduction to New Mexico. Amazing, beautiful, ecclectic community, with some of the country's most undiscovered culinary destinations. Casa De Alma is a warm, amazing, place that completed my beautiful introduction to another part of the world." (B, Vancouver, B.C. 2009)

"Your house was gorgeous and all four of us really appreciate your sharing it with us. It suited our needs perfectly and definitely will be at the top of our list for future visits to Santa Fe. Thank you so much for making it such an easy process." (KY, Ft. Worth, TX 2009)

"We enjoyed our stay at Casa De Alma very much. The weather was perfect all week and we had a great time in Santa Fe. I would like to complement you on having all the amenties there. It was refreshing to have spices, good cookware and firewood, just to mention a few. We had a fabulous time!" (RK, Highlands Ranch, CO, 2009)

"I'm sad to say this is our last night in Santa Fe. We have so enjoyed our stay at Casa De Alma. It is such a beautiful house! Every room screams Santa Fe!

(C&C, Colorado, 2009)

"A wonderful spot to celebrate a 60th birthday with a girls trip! We snuggled in the robes, sipped coffee on the porch, and giggled around the table for hours! We especially loved the birds in the early morning. Thanks for attention to detail! For a fabulous treat, the Downtown Day Spa came to the house for pedicures, massage, etc. Their number is 505-986-0113 --we had a lovely outdoor-in-the-patio massages! (KL and friends, Dallas, TX, 2008)

"We loved the house - it is so much better staying in a home where we felt completely at home instead of a hotel where you really have no space to mingle.  Anyway it was great having coffee on the patio, walking to Canyon road and looking at all the Art. The home is complete as well - all the gadgets we needed. It was amazingly warm and relaxing for a luxury home" (KL, Denver, CO, 2008)!

"Perhaps you know, or perhaps you don't, that it is quite a risk locating a house online, shelling out major bucks, site unseen! When I arrived and walked into the house, I had a huge sigh of relief ! One just doesn't know how something will measure up. But the house, location, amenities, every thoughtful detail (how did you know we'd be hungry and need a little something before we could even head out to dinner!!! and it was waiting on the counter for us! ) were perfect for us.  Thanks for your attention to detail and a wonderful home base." (KF, Dallas, TX, 2008)

"Casa De Alma is absolutely the only place we will stay in our visits to Santa Fe. Everything is provided for you in every detail. Everything from the fully equipped kitchen to a listing to things to do, see and places to eat are provided. This home is so relaxing that you will find yourself relaxing in the garden area instead of going into town. It is that nice! We highly recommend this 5 star home. " (RP Family, Wichita, Kansas, 2008)

"What a wonderful place to have a 50th birthday! Your home is very beautiful and has everything for your guest.
