I or a member of my household will be available to greet you and provide helpful tips on visiting Santa Fe. I give my guests the space and privacy they desire, but am also available when needed. With advance notice, I can provide guests with guided outings to local galleries and artist studios, the Santa Fe Opera, chocolate shops and spectacular locations for hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and mushroom foraging.
Breakfast bagels or muffins, yogurt, coffee, juice and an assortment of teas are provided the first morning of your stay. You are also welcome to use 2 guest passes that provide unlimited free admission for two adults to 5 Santa Fe museums: Museum of Indian Arts & Culture, Museum of International Folk Art, New Mexico History Museum, Palace of the Governors and New Mexico Museum of Art.
Santa Fe is located in the high desert of Northern New Mexico at an elevation of 7,200 ft. We enjoy low humidity and moderate to seasonal temperatures ranging from 52 to 85°F in the Summer, 35 to 65°F in the Spring and Fall, and 18 to 45°F in Winter. New Mexico has a mild, semi-arid climate characterized by abundant sunshine. The summer monsoon season usually brings brief but dramatic thundershowers in late afternoon, while winter snowstorms alternate with long stretches of sunny, cloudless days. Layers of clothing are extremely important during all times of the year as high desert temperatures fluctuate between the day (warmer) and the night (colder).
Smoking and use of candles prohibited, both in the casita and in the yard. No pets. Please conserve heat/electricity, by turning off lights when not in use and turning down the thermostats in the living room, bedroom and bathroom when you leave for more than a few hours. The heat is electric and the space will warm up quite quickly when you return.
I enjoy being a member of the Airbnb community. Whether hosting or traveling, I deeply appreciate meeting and learning from people from all over the world. I speak English, Spanish and Portuguese fluently and have some conversational ability in Italian.
As a host, I am committed to supporting your visit to Santa Fe, whether for work or pleasure. I am happy to recommend special places to eat, shop, hike, ski, snowshoe, soak and explore in and around Santa Fe. If arranged in advance, I can provide guests with unique in-town and out-of-town experiences (e.g., Gallery and Artist Studio Visits, an Evening of Spanish Tapas Hopping, XC Ski/Snowshoe Outings, Mushroom Foraging followed by a Garden Patio Dinner, Tailgate Picnic Nights at the Opera). Just let me know your interests and I will be happy to create and guide a memorable experience in our Land of Enchantment, tailored just for you.
