“Meets everything important to us when staying in a B&B or hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

There are three items important to us when staying in a hotel or B&B; location, value and cleanliness. Casa Cuma met all three of these by our standards.

Location - As a multiple-time visitor to the city over decades, we love to simply leave our rental car wherever we are staying and walk the entire city while safely eating and drinking our way through the town. This was our first time staying in a B&B in Santa Fe as we historically have stayed in hotels near the plaza. Casa Cuma is approximately four blocks north of the Plaza with only the last thirty yards being anything more than a moderate slope and the middle two blocks of modest grade. It is easily walkable even if you are out of shape or older and except for the dead of winter when you probably would want to use a cab, walkable anytime of day or night. The neighborhood is extremely quiet and except when our door was open, never heard street traffic.

Value - We spend the minimal amount of time in our room as we want to partake in all that a city has to offer. We do not need a 42 inch flat screen tv (they have I believe 22" flat screen tv), nor a spa facility or room service. Shop Kayak and you'll find this to be reasonably priced especially when factoring in free parking that depending upon your room location is seconds to a couple of minutes away.

Cleanliness - We had the "Chili Room" which is adjacent to the lobby and was initially somewhat worried about the noise from other guests walking in during the evening to grab snacks or water. Maybe once over the three nights did we even hear anyone walking or talking in the lobby. The room air conditioner was extremely quiet and with a combination fan, allowed you to adjust the temperature throughout the night to your personal tastes. The room and separate bathroom was spotless. As a male reviewer I tend to overlook decorative issues such as bed softness and decor. That said, the sheets were incredibly soft as were the large bath towels compared to the typically stiff, smaller ones most hotels now offer. If I can notice and comment on this aspect of the room, it has to be special.

Being heavily reliant on Tripadvisor reviews, I am sometimes suspicious of overly complimentary reviews, worried that "friends and relatives" are increasing the ratings. As you read all of these reviews I want to add that I find it hard disagreeing with what others' are writing.

Shaan and Colleen, the owners, are friendly, helpful and project a serenity that even someone as cynical as I find refreshing. They will do anything you request, prepare outstanding formal sit-down breakfasts and offer amenities like unlimited water, yogurt and cookies throughout the day. To introduce the only negatives in my review to make this believable, the shower pressure in our room was less than adequate regardless of how I adjusted the nozzle. Probably a structural issue that cannot be improved and the coffee served in the morning could be a bit hotter. Talk about being nit-picky!!!

We would absolutely recommend this B&B to others and would, without any hesitation, stay here again.

Room Tip: Can only speak to our room but being next to the lobby was not an issue from a noise perspective.

Thank you so much for the fantastic review! We are so, so happy to hear that you enjoyed you stay here at Casa Cuma Bed & Breakfast.

We consider ourselves very fortunate to be so close to the Plaza area and yet in a quiet neighborhood. With so much going on in the Plaza area, especially in summer, it's nice to be able to offer a quiet refuge to relax and rejuvenate in. Being able to park your car and walk to restaurants, museums and all the cultural things going on in town is a vital ingredient to a relaxing vacation.

Once again, thank you so much for your wonderful review. We really enjoyed having you here as our guest and hope that we will see you back here at Casa Cuma some day soon,

From the moment we walked through the entrance of Casa Cuma B&B until we departed 3 days later, we felt most welcome. Staying with Shaan and Colleen was just like staying with friends. Their charming and comfortable home is within an easy walk to the Santa Fe Plaza area and our ability to navigate easily around Santa Fe was greatly enhanced by Shaan's fabulous maps and verbal guidance. We enjoy hiking and his advice and help in planning our day at Bandelier National Monument and Valle Caldera was invaluable.Colleen's breakfasts were fresh, nutritious and filling and gave us a great start to our busy days. This was our first time in Santa Fe and when we return, we will certainly stay at Casa Cuma without hesitation.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We love to hear that folks are happy here and that the information that we provide is helpful.

We love to hike and Santa Fe has so many great hikes, with lots of diversity, so we do our best to try to match folks with the right hike.

The Valles Caldera is one of my favorite places on the Earth, so I am especially happy that you went there an enjoyed it. The elk herd is amazing and just the peacefulness of the place is worth the trip. Hmmmm. I haven't been there in a while. Think I'll put that on my list for this week.

Once again. thank you for the great review and for choosing Casa Cuma as your home away from home in Santa Fe. We look forward to seeing you back here again soon.

The B&B is located within short walking distance of downtown and offers quaint, comfortable rooms and terrific breakfasts cooked by Saan and his wife who are excellent, friendly hosts. While we were there they could not be more accommodating in offering helpful hints about how to best enjoy the area. This is a place we will return to when in Santa Fe.

Wow! How nice of you to write such a wonderful review! Thank you.

We know that vacations are special to everyone, so when you travel, you want to experience what the area has to offer, and while there may be too many things to do all of them, we try to make sure that our guests get a good feel for what Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico provides. We'll do our best to find more things to do on your next trip, as well as remind you of some favorites from this trip.

Once again, thank you for the amazing review. We hope to see you back in Santa Fe and at Casa Cuma soon.

My wife and I stayed at the Casa Cuma B&B for 4 nights in early June. I have nothing but positive things to say about the experience. The B&B is ideally located with only a short walk to the Plaza, is quite comfortable, clean and quiet. Both owners (Shaan and Colleen) are very friendly and joined us several mornings for breakfast. Shaan was very helpful in lining us up with info on our day trips around Santa Fe and hiking trails to the hinterlands. Colleen is an exceptional cook and cooked up some delicious gluten free breakfasts for my wife who has celiac. Casa Cuma and Sante Fe are definitely on our short list for a return visit.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! What an amazing review! You are so kind.

I am personally so glad to hear that your wife enjoyed the gluten free breakfasts. I try to be sure that everyone gets a good breakfast, no matter what their dietary restrictions might be, so when I hear that someone found them to be delicious, it's especially rewarding.

We are looking forward to having you back at Casa Cuma soon. I'm always working on new recipes, so hopefully you will find them delicious too. Once again, thank you for your kind words.

Shaan and Colleen could not have made our first visit to Santa Fe more memorable and enjoyable. Their B&B was comfortable, peaceful, and within an easy walk to the middle of Santa Fe. More importantly, they were gracious and informative hosts. As first time visitors to Santa Fe, they provided a detailed description of the sites, culture, and restaurants and how to easily access these. Finally, the breakfasts were a treat as well as the fellowship with others staying at their B&B.

We have already decided to make another visit to Santa Fe and will most definitely stay atCasa Cuma Bed & Breakfast.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! It is so rewarding to hear that you two enjoyed your first trip to Santa Fe and even more exciting to hear that you would like to come back.

We love Santa Fe and find there are endless things to do here, so folks can always find new experiences for their next trip. After living here for nine years, we still find galleries and restaurants that we have never been to and hiking in Northern New Mexico is so varied that it's always interesting and different.

Thank you once again for the fantastic review. We look forward to welcoming you back to Casa Cuma soon!

We truly enjoyed our stay at Casa Cuma. Friendly Proprietors, a family like atmosphere, terrific breakfasts, and great company. Casa Cuma is just minutes, by foot, from Santa Fe's central plaza and museums. Shaan and Colleen provide detailed instructions and directions on how to get the most out of our trip and provided a pass for free admission to many museums. Our only (minor) complaints: chemicals in the hot tub were too toxic to enjoy; and our mattress was worn. We will do our best to come back.

Santa Fe was amazing - much better than we anticipated. Shaan and Colleen are gracious hosts. The Museum Passes were fantastic and we used them each day. It was our first visit but it won't be our last. Looking forward to staying at Casa Cuma again!

Fantastic! Wonderful review! Thank you so much!

What a wonderful thing to hear that your trip was better than you expected! We love Santa Fe and always hope that our guests will feel the same way, so it's great to hear that you found it amazing and plan to return.

Santa Fe and the surrounding area has so much variety that it easy for almost everyone to find what they are looking for, whether it is eating at the many great restaurants just steps away from the B&B, or hiking on one of the numerous trails in the mountains just minutes away, or climbing in the pueblo ruins at Bandelier National Monument, or shopping in the historic Plaza area shops and galleries and under the portal where the Native American's show and sell their work. Fly fishing, rafting, hot air ballooning, and so much more are all here in the area, so when you return, we'll do our best to make sure you and your family have another great experience in Santa Fe.

Once again, thank you for the fantastic review. You are so kind. We hope to see you back in the area soon.
