“Comfortable home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

We wanted to have more than a hotel room for a week long stay in Santa Fe while we attended a meeting at the La Fonda on the Plaza. Our unit the Corazon was well equipped with kitchen that Linda provided for nicely with utensils, plates, etc and coffeemaker which we used daily. We found the unit comfortable at night and a nice retreat after a long day. The 20 minute walk to the Plaza is invigorating and enjoyable. We drove to Whole Foods and nearby restaurants when we weren't walking. Linda provided us with a nice list of suggestions for eateries and activities, all spot on.

Room Tip: Ask about differences of each unit. The web site shows pictures of each with good descriptions. Ess...

We couldn't have been happier with our weeklong stay. Our one bedroom casita, Desero, was so comfortable and cozy. The attention to all the details that make a property exceptional were there- a wonderful king-size bed to sleep in, everything one could need in the kitchen to prepare a nice meal, fluffy towels and robes, nice furniture to relax on in the living room and so much more. The location is convenient to all the main dining and shopping areas in downtown Santa Fe, but is in a quiet, historic neighborhood. It's charming and authentic. It has a very special atmosphere that can't be duplicated in a hotel. Also, the value was terrific for a rather expensive city. Linda, the owner, was great and we enjoyed meeting her and her dog, Mickey. We have rented many private properties through the years, and this casita was one of our all-time favorites. We will definitely return and have already recommended it to our friends.

I did quite a bit of research before I settled on Lavender Sunset and I'm glad to report that our casita was all we wanted in Santa Fe. Its location is just about perfect, a few blocks from the Capitol, the same distance from Guadalupe St and the Railyard, and less than a mile of easy walking to the plaza. There is off-street parking. We stayed in Amor and found it clean and comfortable. There is a full, well-stocked kitchen. The king-size bed was comfortable and the bedding was of high quality. We really liked our small, private patio--perfect for a before dinner drink. There isn't much closet space and the room was a little dark, but the bath is adequate. Really, I had no major quibbles with this property and the friendly owner lives on site if you have any issues.

Highly-recommended. Lovely accommodations at the right price. Linda was so welcoming--and she even gave me a tour of lovely Santa Fe--and shared the history of the town with me. The space was like a lovely efficiency apartment, and just the PERFECT environment for rest and comfort. The bedroom/living area had a desk, couch and a fully-equipt kitchen--and a lovely little outdoor area where we ate our breakfast each morning. It was clean, clean, clean--and the outdoors beautifully-appointed with flowers and an outdoor Jacuzzi. A short walk to the Plaza--and near enough to Trader Joe and Whole Foods--so there was no want for anything. It was also a very good value--and I would stay there again without any hesitation.

Our casita, Amor, was perfectly prepared for us! Linda thinks of everything! We visited during Indian Market and the location is perfect - a short walk to the plaza but far enough away to be out of the traffic!
We will definitely stay with you again! Thanks for everything!

My wife and I spent a week at the Lavender Casitas--Espiritu, to be specific. We made the reservation "blind," having never been to Santa Fe before, but were very pleased with what we experienced. The accommodations are compact, but certainly larger than a typical hotel room. It was clean and well-maintained and imaginatively decorated. The Comcast cable TV connection (complete with On Demand programming) was a nice surprise. We had first class meals in seven different restaurants (hitting a couple more than once), and we walked to all of them. The downtown plaza area was an easy walk (15 minutes at a very leisurely pace). Linda's recommendations about field trips (we went to Pecos and Taos) were invaluable. The patio area and the hot tub were a delight. We would definitely stay there again.

My friend and I spent four nights at the Lavendar Casitas. Our casita, Espiritu, was beautifully decorated in southwest decor, clean and cool! The bedroom air conditioner cooled off the entire casita. My friend slept on the futon in the living area and she found it quite comfortable....and she is choosy about mattresses! Here's the best part: my friend and I left two items in the casita and Linda called as soon as she found them and was prepared to send the items to us in the mail. You would not find that kind of service from a hotel chain. We felt like we were at home with all the comforts of the casita. The few small disadvantages (narrow parking area, bathroom window that didn't fully close) did not outweigh all of the positives and I would definitely stay here when I return to beautiful Santa Fe!! We almost stayed at another casita in Santa Fe and were so happy we chose Lavendar Casitas instead, especially when we saw the hill we would have been climbing everyday! We were close to downtown and a Whole foods and Trader Joes for groceries. The garden area near the hot tub was perfect for enjoying a glass of wine in the evening. We could tell that alot of thought went into choosing the decor and the items in the well-stocked kitchen. The many personal touches (frosty glasses awaited us in the freezer etc) truly added to our whole Santa Fe experience.
