“The perfect little Casita!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2008

As soon as we arrived we drove straight up to our casita (260 1/2 Staab Street) and it was lovely. The keys were inside waiting for us. Wood beam ceilings, colorful walls, cute tiles in the shower, all wood floors and a lovely white picket fence outside so we could let our dogs out on their own. The kitchenette was small and adorable with the punched tin cabinets. The casita overall was very clean. There was an a/c and it was needed at night as the windows were not positioned for good air flow. We were a hop, skip and jump from the main square in the plaza; Yet is was a very quiet neighborhood.

The negs: The bed was very hard, it needs a new one. The AC broke in the middle of the night on the last night there.

Our friends had a room on Mackenzie St, their back door was 10 feet from our front door. They had a larger one bedroom and it very cute as well. They also commented their room needed a new bed.

We paid $98 a night, the dog fee was a flat $20 for the three nights and I felt it was totally worth the value. We were very pleased with our stay. I highly recommend the casita we stayed in. Paul at the front desk is very friendly and helpful.

Santa Fe is a lovely town with great food, good shopping and an excellent atmosphere! Check out my extensive trip report on the Santa Fe forum for more info.

  • Liked — Convience of our Casita to Town. Cute little adobe casita with traditional NM feel.
  • Disliked — Very hard bed.

We just returned from a trip to the southwest and spent three nights in Santa Fe at the Chapelle Street Casitas. We had a very positive and happy experience there. Our little apartment had a bedroom with comfortable king sized bed, great bathroom, wonderfully equipped eat-in kitchen, and large living room with flat-screened TV and wireless access. The breakfast included in the price was excellent and the whole package was of exceptional value in a superior location. In addition Paul was extremely helpful with advice about what to see and do (don't miss the O'Keeffe museum and the Folk Art Museum) and take the historic walking tour suggested by Paul - just great (our tour guide was "Donna" - terrific). Buy jewelry at the Palace of the Governors from the Navajo and Pueblo Indians who are there everyday. Ogle the fantastic art of Canyon Road and the great shopping in downtown Santa Fe around the Plaza. Don't expect daily maid service or fancy bottles of shampoo and lotion in the casitas. If you want that, go to an overpriced hotel. But really, this was so much better than anything one could get at a hotel. Highly recommended!

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and it was a sheer delight. We booked a small 1 bedroom casita but when we arrived, we were upgraded AT NO EXTRA CHARGE to a small house, all to ourselves! The accommodations were great...clean, updated , cute and the decor was very Santa Fe..We had our own parking spot right in fronf of the house. Also, the manager, Paul, was so helpful...we had a few problems with the wi-fi connection (Cable company issue) and Paul spent all day working on it until ilt was fixed. We were able to get wifi access every day, thanks to him. The breakfasts are wonderful..always a hot option, plus home made granola, varied breads, fresh fruit, coffee, tea ...Mary, breakfast lady, was so helpful with tourist tips..Paul was very helpful with this as well. Santa Fe is a unique city that oozes charm and this is a perfect place to stay!! I would highly recommend it to all!! Thanks Bruce, Paul and Mary!!!

The Chapelle Street Casitas are a comfortable, affordable and excellent choice for your Santa Fe stay. Location, location, location... the Casitas are only a few short blocks from The Plaza! Although you are provided safe off-street parking, you can walk almost everywhere you want to go. The casitas are non-smoking - much appreciated by non-smokers. Wireless service allows you to keep up with your Inbox and Google all the sites and events in Santa Fe from the comfort of your room. I plan to return to the Chapelle St. Casitas again and again.
I stayed at Chapelle Street Casitas from 11 May to 12 June 2007

We stayed at the Chappelle Street Casitas in April 2007 for a weekend getaway in Santa Fe. The accomodations were lovely, spacious, and clean. Our casita included a large living room with a fireplace, generously sized bathroom, comfortable bedroom, and the kitchen had obviously been recently renovated.

The location was perfect - around the corner from the Georgia O'Keefe Museum, down the road from some great restaurants, and a five minute walk to the Plaza. The casita also offered a fantastic home-cooked breakfast every morning that was absolutely delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful in suggesting things to do off the beaten track.

The only complaint was tight parking, but otherwise, this was a great bargain and I enjoyed staying there so much that I'm headed back just a month later!

Sorry it has taken me so long to write this Bruce! School and personal family health problems prevented me from writing sooner!
We had the best Christmas week ever in Santa Fe! Thank you for such a cozy and wonderful accomodation...I think it was our favorite one yet! I wouldn't stay any where else! If you had caused the snow...I would thank you for that, also. Our Casita was so private and nice. I loved the kitchen and the cute little table by the window! I would like to recommend Bumblebee's Baja Bar and Grill if I remember the name correctly. We didn't want to move our car, so we walked there in the snow! Fantastic food! Live music on Tuesdays, I think. We also loved breakfast at the your place! What a great Christmas treat for us!
We took the train ride in the snow! Merry Christmas to us!
We always had your lovely place to come home to!
Personally I think you deserve ********** 10 STARS!
Maybe we will see you this summer!

We stayed in Casita D on Chappelle street and found it very comfortable. The cute southwestern decor was cozy and attractive, the kitchen well equipped and servicable. The location can't be beat,walking distance to all of downtown Santa Fe's museums, galleries and great restaurants. We found the service to be friendly and helpful. The manager brought us more towels as soon as we requested them, and when we told her we were from Florida, she offered more blankets and heaters in case we found it cold. I recommend these casitas if you want a simple but homey place to experience the ambiance of old Santa Fe.
