About a 5-minute walk from the Plaza and the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, this lovely home puts you in the heart of the city, then pampers you with 3 suites, 2 patios, many fireplaces, and WiFi/HDTV.
El Corazon de Santa Fe earns its name of the heart of the city with an enviable location. Parking is no issue. There's an underground lot here with an elevator. Leave the car and head out on foot to explore the beautiful downtown sights of Santa Fe, then return to the luxurious comfort of this beautifully appointed home.
Each bedroom is a self-contained suite with full bath at El Corazon de Santa Fe -- perfect for couples or friends traveling together as well as for a family. One master bedroom is downstairs, featuring a king-sized bed, wall-mounted flat screen, cozy gas fireplace, and plush reading chair with lamp. The private bath offers a long soaking tub, walk-in shower, and dual vanities. Just steps from the common area (and with no stairs to negotiate!), this suite is marvelously relaxing and so convenient.
The other two bedrooms are upstairs, affording extra privacy and quiet for children and other early-to-bedders! One contains a king-sized bed, a kiva gas fireplace, comfy reading chair, HDTV, and beautiful banks of windows on two walls. Its private bath has a shower/tub combination and granite countertop.
The third bedroom has 2 twin beds that can be converted into a king. It has its own flat-screen as well, a private bath with walk-in shower, and a door leading out to the private balcony with seating for 4 at an all-weather table. Glimpse Santa Fe's famous sunsets and enjoy those fresh northern New Mexico breezes from this perch right in the center of town!
And El Corazon de Santa Fe is far more than simply a place to sleep. This is a fully furnished and decorated home, with a large living room, separate study, fully stocked kitchen, and separate dining room for 6. You will love the big common area, with its ultra-relaxing sofas and chairs, giant HDTV with DVD and CD players, and double set of doors leading out to the patio. From the decorated viga ceiling to the smooth tile floors, this is an attractive and very welcoming room, inviting you to stay in for the night and play games with the family!
Nice little architectural touches fill El Corazon de Santa Fe, such as the wood pillars and cornice separating the living room from the dining area. This keeps the rooms separate, but lets the whole group stay together even when some are watching their favorite movie in the living room while others play Monopoly at the table!
Of course, you can also use the dining room table for dining. You may be filling the fridge with leftovers from Santa Fe's stunning restaurants, or you might choose to whip up a homemade feast with produce from the Farmer's Market one night. But even if you are just grabbing a toasted bagel and hot coffee before heading out for your day's adventures each morning, you will appreciate the kitchen at El Corazon. Stainless-steel appliances -- including 2 ovens, a gas range, and an oversized refrigerator -- pair with time-savers such as the microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, and blender to speed you on your way. And for the chef in your group, the cupboards and cabinets are fully stocked with cooking and serving equipment for any occasion!
And whether you are working or simply uploading the day's stunning photos each evening, the study at El Corazon will delight you. A couch and reading chair invite you to finish a novel or work on a fun project -- but if duty calls, step up to the long desk, connect to high-speed Internet, and get the job done in no time! This is also a nice quiet area for members of your group who would rather quilt, read, talk on the phone, or enjoy a private conversation than join the festivities in the living room!
Before you go to bed each night, be sure to enjoy a final drink on the big downstairs patio. It's private and spacious, with seating for 6 and a big fireplace to warm up in winter. Plan your next day's excursions and reminisce about the good times you've already had in Santa Fe!
El Corazon de Santa Fe is a vacation home to fall in love with. Come experience the unbeatable location and pleasant ambiance of this fine family home!
