House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps
Tucked away in an historic downtown Santa Fe neighborhood is
McKenzie House! Relax and enjoy Santa Fe at its finest. Just steps
away from the Plaza and major attractions, you can treat yourself in
downtown Santa Fe. We are located just one block north of the famed Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. This very special, newly remodeled and private
guest house is located in the heart of the historic and quiet
McKenzie Street neighborhood. We are the closest residential home
north of the Plaza! Better than a hotel and more space than a B and
B, you have your own fully equipped "casita" (little house) and
central location to enjoy the many sights and activities of Santa Fe
and Northern New Mexico. Our comfortable and relaxing casita is
freestanding and separate from our main home, both sanctioned
historically significant structures by the City of Santa Fe.
McKenzie House is an intimate (approx. 350 sq. ft.) and luxurious
accomodation with every attention to detail. Our main house was
built circa 1915, the casita was the original carriage house.
Lovingly redesigned in 2001 to include both old world charms and
contemporary amenities, including a jacuzzi hottub (brand new!),
32" flat-screen tv/dvd, full kitchen, washer/dryer, and kiva fireplace. Past guests
have described our casita as "peaceful", "relaxing" and "extremely
convenient". One recent guest commented, "you have thought of
Experience the excitement and charm of Santa Fe in the comforts of
your own private neighborhood. Dine at your leisure in your
contemporary kitchen or the numerous world class restaurants within
easy walking distance, relax by the kiva fireplace or in your
private outdoor hot tub and patio, and stroll to the many sights and
adventures of the Santa Fe Plaza, just two blocks away! Perfect for
the many activities that happen downtown, such as the Chamber Music
Festival, Spanish Market, Indian Market (also just two blocks away),
Fiestas, etc. The Santa Fe Convention Center is just one short block
away (less than 200 steps!). The Santa Fe ski area is a quick 20 minute drive up the
mountain. Private parking, locking front gate and beautiful
southwestern garden are yours! So come, stay and relax. We have
equipped our casita with all the amenities that will make your stay
with us as pleasant as possible: a romantic kiva fireplace to lull
you to sleep, direct dial phone that lets you stay in touch with the
outside world, adjustable ceiling fan for a cool breeze, big fluffy
towels for your hot tub and shower, and specialty soaps and shampoos
to pamper you. Comfortable bathrobes and a hairdryer are furnished
so you can leave yours at home. The casita is equipped with a wall mounted 32" tv/dvd combo flat
screen with a DVD library, as well as wireless internet access throughout the property.
We love Santa Fe and its rich culture, and you will be able to see
this not only in the beautiful southwestern art and handicrafts with
which we decorate our casita but also in your private garden and
Ideal for a single or couple (two is our maximum, sorry, no children
or pets), this casita offers European comforts in a modern Santa Fe
style. You are exactly one block north of the famed Georgia O'Keeffe
Museum, one block west of the new Convention Center and two
blocks from the Santa Fe Plaza and the Lensic Theater Complex.

Adorable with a beautiful garden
My husband and I stayed at the McKenzie House for 8 nights in early June on our second honeymoon.The place was perfect for us! It's small, but the space is well laid out so we did not feel crowded. Because the weather was so good, we spent a lot of time on the patio, enjoying the beautiful garden, listening to the birds, the wind chimes and the gurgling fountain. It's very private, felt intimate. Cynthia did a beautiful job of decorating the place, and it was spotless. The breakfast basket she provided lasted us almost a week! Very generous. And the small hot tub was very clean and relaxing. It really helped make our trip perfect!
Santa Fe Casita
My husband and I rented this adorable casita for the week of our 30th wedding anniversay. The casita was just perfect for a couple. We had plenty of privacy. We never moved the car when we stayed in Santa Fe. We were able to walk to all the sites.
McKenzie House stay
Perfect place to relax and enjoy Santa Fe. Cindy and David have a well appointed Casita with all the comforts of home plus. The Casita is situatuated where one can enjoy peace and quite while being close to town. Walking distance was not a problem. The description was right on, layout better than a five star hotel and the amenities. Who would not enjoy NOT sharing a hot tub with others. Coffee in the hot tub in the morning and a relaxing soak with a glass of New Mexico wine in the evening was pure perfection.
The cleanliness was outstanding. I though the glass shower door was wonderful. We liked the lighted vanity in the bathroom. It gave just enough light.
I would definately recommend this property to a friend and co-worker. We were the envy of all who were attending the conference we were attending.
As we were attending a conference where all meals and guest activities were part of the registeration fee, we only at out once. The restaurant at the LaFonde served delicious food in a professional atmosphere. I did get to tour some on the closer attractions and had one afternoon for shopping. Left a few $$$$'s at local stores.
