With abundant sunshine, a vibrant arts scene, and more than 200 restaurants, New Mexico's capital city is a popular destination for second homeowners. Homes range from expansive private ranches and equestrian estates outside the city to golf course estates to gated communities perched on hillsides with expansive views and easy access to hiking and cross-country trails.

In town, pueblo revival and adobe style homes with quick access to Canyon Road are desirable for vacation home owners who want to be in the heart of the arts district. These compound style homes are also popular with vacationers looking to rent a place that's walking distance to restaurants and galleries.

For those who prefer homeownership with hotel style and no maintenance, there's El Corazon De Santa Fe, a Fairmont Heritage Place residence club with deeded fractional ownership in spacious two-bedroom residences just three blocks from Plaza.
