Peaceful Hilltop Casita w/ Stunning Views, Close to the Historic Plaza

Romantic Santa Fe cottage in Northeast Santa Fe, near Santa Fe Plaza
Our casita, Cielito Lindo, is located in exclusive North Hills, situated at an altitude of 7,200 ft. on a serene and beautiful hilltop, three minutes from the historic Santa Fe Plaza, galleries, restaurants, shopping and night life. Experience sunrises and sunsets as you've never seen before. Night is especially magical in North Hills. In the summer, sit outside on your private portal listening to the wind sighing in the piñons. Gaze at stars so bright you can almost touch them. Hear the howl of coyotes in far-off hills and, in between, a serene and profound silence unique to the high desert country of northern New Mexico. In the winter, build a roaring fire in the kiva and snuggle in with a book, music or television or just listen in silence to the crackling fire. Cielito Lindo is a place to reconnect - with yourself and with the world around you. Situated on a hilltop off a quiet street with private parking, Cielito Lindo offers a cosy, romantic getaway that features a large living room complete with a Kiva fireplace, 50" TV, and stereo system. Enjoy home cooked meals from the spacious fully equipped kitchen or take a short walk down to the plaza for shopping and restaurants. The bedroom offers a queen bed, along with plenty of closet space. The den can also be used as a second bedroom complete with a sleeper sofa or as an office while working away from home. This casita is ideal for a writer, painter, arts lover, couple or family in search of serenity and all the natural beauty that Santa Fe has to offer. Conveniently located about 1 mile from the historic Santa Fe Plaza, shops, grocery stores, galleries and museums and a 12-minute drive from the world-famous outdoor Santa Fe Opera.

Best private guest house stay
The private guest house on a once acre property with a great sunset view of the west was one of the best stays we have ever had in our 50 years of traveling. I was roomy and comfortable, quiet and only 5 minutes from town. We will be back again! Owner was outstanding.

A Place to Love
Chris and Marie get six out of five stars for being perfectly helpful hosts with vast knowledge of the area. Their rental was immaculate, cozy, and setting picturesque. Stay here and you will not want to leave and want to return. Thanks to you both for making our 34th anniversary memorable.
