I wasn't sure how the stay would be as there were mixed reviews when I was investigating where to stay.
Well the place appears to be in the process of being refurbished as some rooms are being worked on.
We are a party of 4 with 2 adults and 2 teenage grandkids. I got the basic room. I chose this because of the proximity to the Plaza and the price was so great.
As it turns out everything is new or nearly new. We have a huge bedroom with a nice living room, dinette, small kitchen fully stocked with everything necessary for cooking.
The Plaza is maybe a 7 minute walk. There is shuttle service to wherever one needs to go within a radius but the walk is really nice. The Santa Fe School of Cooking that we will go to is also within walking distance as are grocery stores.
We needed extra blankets and had them within minutes.
I highly recommend the Villas to anyone and we will stay here again.

After another soggy evening, woke up around 6.30am in the log cabin. Shower, breakfast and on the road by 8 am we proceed to Roswell and what can only be described as the weirdest museum so far. Roswell UFO museum, this quirky place had conspiracy written all over it, and of you didn't believe in aliens you would after visiting this place! Armed with I foil hats to stop the ...
... Fe splurge next week before we head north to Colorado Springs. The musuem is a terrific spot to visit & we visit Vanessie & the Coyote Cafe. We'll have to toss a coin later. Back to the casita where the blue skies slowly give way to the huge thunderheads that rise daily over the surrounding mountains. The downpour can only be an hour or so away. Enjoy the photos of a quiet Sunday in Santa ...
The trip to Santa Fe was fast and the landscape was gorgeous. It did get a little old: Look at me, I am the landscape! I am so beautiful! Alright already! New Mexico may be my new favorite state (sorry MI) . I love the mountains and stark contrasts as we tour NM, and the fact that ice cream shops serve HaagenDazs in a cone!
We stopped and ate at the Tortilla Flats Restaurant. This little Mexican food joint was recommended by one of my fathers' ...
Captain's Log: Day 7 - Sante Fe, NM - Miles Traveled 198
We tried to leave early so we could get to Santa Fe early enough to do some shopping on the Plaza. The thunderstorms and rain along the way didn't stop us! We did stop at mile marker 114 in Laguna Mexico to get some Indian Fry Bread. We read online that this place was the best, it was really good but the little store had some cool stuff too!
... Korean War, and other conflicts.
We also noticed the monochromatic nature of the housing, and found out later that by legislation only 7 colors are permitted, all in the southwestern beiges, oranges, etc.
So, Monday night, we went to Maria's, a New Mexican restaurant with 100+ margaritas. We each had 2 and boy, did I feel them! Found out today that because of the 7000 feet altitude, you feel your alcohol beverages 2x-3x ...
