“Amazing hospitality, great location, yummy breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Shaan and Colleen are so friendly and are the consummate B & B owners. You are greeted with cold bottled water, coffee, or tea, homemade cookies and lots of maps and literature to guide you around Santa Fe. The handmade breakfasts served on their patio are amazing. My mouth is still watering thinking about them. We stayed in a gorgeous townhouse a few blocks from their main quarters that is part of their B & B and is very close to the Plaza. A very lovely stay in Santa Fe with the friendliest, kindest B & B owners ever.

Room Tip: The fairly new townhouse that is a few blocks from the main b & B accommodation. It is gorgeous...

Wow! Thank you so much for the fantastic review!

Living in the high desert in Santa Fe, we understand that keeping hydrated really makes it possible for our guests to fully enjoy their time here in Northern New Mexico. We are looking into options for providing water that is easy to take with you but in reusable containers. Until we get that arranged, we provide free bottled water and then recycle the bottles weekly. Having cold water that you can take with you while you tour the sights is really important. Thank you for letting us know that you appreciated that.

We love the Casita off Bishop's Lodge Road too. Such a cozy place and while it's not located right at the main B&B, it's just a hop, skip and a jump away.

Once more, thank you for the great review. We hope to see you back at your Santa Fe home, Casa Cuma, once again.

Casa Cuma catches the vibe of what Santa Fe appeared to us as first time visitors - a relaxed, friendly town on a small scale that provides a green oasis from the summer heat. The outdoor patio area where breakfast is served under a tree is delightful. The room we booked was spacious with a comfortable bed and ultra soft sheets. But the most outstanding feature of this property was the kindness of the hosts.

Thank you so much for your fabulous review! It's so good to hear from guests that they enjoyed their stay at Casa Cuma Bed & Breakfast!

We love to hear that the patio setting for breakfast was relaxing and that you liked the bedding. We searched high and low for the most comfortable sheets and think we have found the best out there. They are 600 thread count cotton with a sateen finish and the best part about them is that they are pretty wrinkle free right from the dryer! We sell them and would be happy to ship you some if you want to take a piece of Santa Fe and Casa Cuma home with you.

Thank you once again for your graciousness. The review was great. Come see us again.

My husband and I and my 19 year-old son just spent 4 glorious days with Shaan and Colleen at Casa Cuma Bed and Breakfast. Shaan and Colleen are perfect innkeepers and truly love running a bed and breakfast. Their hospitality is genuine, their accommodations warm, comfortable, and inviting, and the breakfasts and treats are delicious and pampering. I could go on and on with a list of superlatives...
We have stayed at many small inns and bed and breakfasts over the years, but
we have never been greeted by an innkeeper bearing a smile, homemade cookies, free museum passes, and beautifully color-coded walking maps to help us plan our visit in Santa Fe.

Since Shaan and Colleen live on the property, they make themselves available to answer any questions and offer advice, when asked. They want every detail of a guest's stay to be perfect.
We cannot wait to return to Casa Cuma and to Santa Fe!
Thank you Colleen and Shaan for your gracious hospitality!

Patrice, Paul and Christopher,

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! Your kind and generous words warm our hearts.

We do indeed love what we do, mostly because we get the best guests and living in lovely Santa Fe has a lot to do with it too! We try to be here to greet guests upon arrival, so that they are comfortable and know their way around from the beginning. It's not always possible, but we do try. The museum passes really add to our guests experience and Shaan's maps and walking tour are invaluable for finding all that Santa Fe has to offer. We are happy to hear that you found them useful. So many great museums and restaurants, not to mention countless galleries.

It was a real pleasure having you guys here with us and we hope that you will return to Casa Cuma soon.Once again, thank you for the fantastic review!

We checked in on a Friday evening and met Shawn and Coleen, the owners. They were both very warm to speak with and made us feel at home. The B&B is absolutely gorgeous and located at a walking distance from the main plaza. The next morning, Coleen and Shawn served us a very sumptuous, home made breakfast in their front garden, on our request.
A perfect place to spend your weekend in Santa Fe. Will definitely recommend it to everyone.

We love to serve breakfast under the giant fir tree in the garden. It's such a peaceful setting and a great place to eat and enjoy the mountain view.

We really enjoyed hosting you here and hope that you will return again to Casa Cuma. Once again, thank you for the great review.

We stayed in the Vista - which was across street from main facility. So this comment is based on the room where stayed. Upon entering the suite - bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and patio area - the odor - we think from the fabric softener was overwhelming. We opened all of the windows and door - plus lit candles. The next morning - we asked the hosts to wash the sheets - and not use fabric softener - which they did and it made a HUGE difference. They were there to please. The suite was very cluttered with nik-naks - so you had to rearrange so you could put your things out of your luggage. The sheets on the bed were excellent and the pillows great - but the bed was on the floor - no frame - which we found strange. The bathroom towels were again excellent - but the bathroom was kinda tired. Needs a face lift.
The patio was nice - but really needs some attention to make it an attractive place to sit and enjoy the view.
I really wanted to give them a 5 - and maybe if we stayed in another room, it would have been different. Breakfast was great - but too late for us at 8:30. Makes it late to go for a drive to hike to the mountain areas. Fine if you just want to see Santa Fe. Great location - walking distance to everywhere. Sleep quality was fine - but could hear the traffic if you leave the windows open. Close to shopping, market, cinema and the Plaza.

Room Tip: If you have allergies - ask them to not to use the fabric softener. They should change brands to un...

Thank you for taking the time to review us.

We appreciate you choosing to stay with us at Casa Cuma. Thank you for your kind remarks about us. We understand how important vacation is to most people and do our best to make sure that their visit to Santa Fe is a good one.

We apologize for the fragrance issue is your room. It was actually a couple of lavender sachets that were in the closet next to the bathroom. We are glad that they did not cause you any issues after they were removed.

We are glad that you enjoyed the breakfasts and the location. We hope to see you back here at Casa Cuma some day in the future.

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.
