Art filled casita with open concept floorplan which includes a sleeping area, tiny kitchen, and sitting area with a kiva, a private bathroom. Private entrance, private fenced yard, off street parking for 2 small cars. 9 minutes from the Plaza by car.
The space has a queen bed and comfortably accommodates two people. The space is about 430 sq. feet, so not large. The contents for an initial continental breakfast and/or snacks and some drinks are provided. The casita is warmed by passive solar and has its own thermostat. On cold nights, guests may wish to make a fire in the kiva. Firewood is available. Closed shelves are available for food storage as well as a small refrigerator.
Guests have a separate keyed entrance and their own parking and are welcomed to enjoy the house gardens and check out the sculpture, rocks, and plantings. Guests share their yard with the Artist and some welding apparatus and metal pieces are visible.
Общение с гостями
The casita is attached to the main house. Most times one of the hosts will be available at check- in to make sure guests are comfortable. Gardens are available to guests and we welcome interaction. Except on rare occasions, the hosts will be present during the guests' stay. If guests are interested in art, they can request a tour of the art collection in the house. Although the hosts enjoy getting to know guests, we also completely respect our guests need for privacy as well.
Другие важные подробности
For guests who wish to do more than light cooking in the kitchen, both a gas grill and a charcoal grill are available.
As mentioned above, guests are in an area where art (metal sculpture) is made. Even though no welding would go on while guests are present, some interest or toleration for the artistic process might be helpful.
No smoking. Prefer no pets but a small dog (20 lbs or under) would be considered as guests have a completely fenced yard. We have had children and that has not been a problem; however I would like that information before booking. Please, no loud noise after 11:00 at night. Guests are requested to keep the gate locked both coming and going; that way the back yard is completely secured.
My legal name is Mary Evelyn but everyone calls me Molly. My husband Joseph and I love the Santa Fe area and have had a second home in northern New Mexico since 1991. When Joseph, a law professor and legal scholar, decided to retire from teaching, we knew we wanted to live full time in Santa Fe. We love living here, enjoying easy access to hiking and biking, gardening, the art scene, the various classical music events, and the wonderful restaurants. I am gregarious--Joseph not so much. However, we both love getting to know new people and sharing with them our enthusiasm for this wonderful part of the USA. As we have only one Airbnb unit, each guest is treated as a special relationship.
A percentage of what I make on Airbnb bookings will be contributed to a charity I support--Creativity for Peace. This organization brings Palestinian and Israeli girls to a summer camp in the Pecos Mountains east of Santa Fe and then supports these girls after they return home. The mission of this organization is to form personal relationships between the girls which will facilitate peaceful negotiations and settlement of long-standing disagreements in the war-torn Middle East.
