About the property

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.

Please note: This is a NO SMOKING property.

Adorable with a beautiful garden

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.
