My City Gubment has proposed changing the current limited number of Vacation Rentals in residential neighborhoods to unrestricted Vacation Rentals.  Would all y'all mind sharing the state of things in your City?  Do you have a ban or restrictions on Vacation Rentals in your City ?   Has a ban or restriction ever been implemented and then lifted in your City ?  Thanks in advance to ALL y'all.    
Unlicensed vacation rentals for tourists and short-term residents are costing the city of Santa Fe at least $2 million a year in uncollected taxes that could go to pay for police and parks as well as tourism promotion efforts and special events.

Was located on a quiet street within walking distance to the Santa Fe Plaza, and a stones throw from the Georgia O'Keeffe museum, a prime location. When we arrived, we found we were upgraded to the entire cottage. Full kitchen, nicely furnished in true Santa Fe style, we had trouble leaving the house each day. Really enjoyed the stay and the owners were so nice. We received a delicious egg and zucchini casserole with green chili. Would stay here again without question.

When I think of Santa Fe, I think eccentric, eclectic, creative, and diverse. When I stay at Casa Del Toro I get to experience all the layers of Santa Fe, by the people that stay at the B&B, the unique quality of every casita, and the staff. It is central to the whole package that I get every time I come to Santa Fe, not to mention that is centrally located as well! Thanks Bruce, Jody and Skip! S.K. Colorado

Made a reservation for one room but got a different one. No instructions on how to work the gas fireplaces or the hot tub. Reserved a king bed, got a queen.

We stayed at Casa del Toro for a weekend in March 2013. We enjoyed our stay and thought the price was reasonable, so we'll certainly keep Casa del Toro in mind for our next trip to Santa Fe. Pros: - Adorable casita, full of character! We stayed in #7, which was a 1 bedroom with a kitchenette and full bath with jacuzzi tub. The unit was clean and nicely furnished. There were some nice little touches like a cool old trunk as a coffee table and two wooden carved animals on a cute little adobe half-wall in the living area. We particularly loved the beautiful mirror in the bathroom, the wooden slat shutters (even though some of the slats didn't move well), and the armoire that contained a handful of books and the game Yahtzee!. Pretty much everything we could have needed during our stay was provided: dishes, cutlery, dish soap, paper towels, a toaster, a microwave, tea kettle, hot plate, and so on. The sheets were soft, the bed was comfortable, the water was plenty hot, and there was lots of natural light. Someone previously commented about the floors squeaking, locks being unsecure, the dishes being mismatched, and walls being thin. Sure, the wooden floors might squeak, there may be a slight crack in the adobe here or there, and you might be able to hear some goings-on outside but that's just part of the experience of staying in an old house. And given that people probably occasionally break and/or run off with the dishware, why would anyone expect a full, nice matching set? We didn't rent the unit expecting it to be high end - we wanted a charming, clean, and authentic place to stay downtown and that's what we got. - Convenient location right downtown, just moments from the historic Plaza district and 1.5 miles from Trader Joe's, with lots of restaurants and shopping in a 1-2 mile radius. We were able to see a lot on our 2 mile walk in the morning. - Off street parking. The lot was snug, but it was reassuring having our car nestled in front of our unit by the covered patio (where we could have hung out and chatted with our neighbors if we'd had time). - Easy check-in and check-out. The confirmation email was very informative. Never once interacted with any of the staff at Casa del Toro, so I can't speak to their customer service. Cons: - The website/reservation system was confusing about which rooms are part of the vacation rentals, and which are B&B. The difference being that for vacation rentals, you're invited to breakfast for $9/person (which looks like a fair price for what I hear is a great breakfast), which is included for B&B rooms. Honestly, I think it's nice that not all the units are roped into having breakfast, but I spent way too long on the website trying to figure out the difference between units. - The front door lock was definitely loose. We didn't feel unsafe, but it seemed like something that could be easily fixed. An additional deadbolt would probably make visitors feel more secure, not knowing anything about the neighborhood or local crime. We also noted the unit wasn't very weather-sealed (would probably be drafty in the winter). - We would have liked a bath mat and/or an extra towel. If we hadn't brought our own, we would have been lacking something to put down on the nice wood floor. In another review on TripAdvisor someone commented about noise, but we didn't find that to be a problem at all. We awoke to some birds chirping, but were well insulated from any road noise or loud people (the location isn't right on a main road, so that shouldn't be a problem anyway). Our unit was toward the back. Overall, as mentioned above, we had a great visit. In my opinion, this was far preferable to staying in a hotel.

Casa del Toro was exceptional in every way. We loved our unique, spacious and charming well appointed rooms - one room had a kiva and skylights, the other was like a full apartment with all the amenities. The location was absolutely perfect for seeing the sites in Santa Fe. Paul, the owner went out of his way to tell us all about the area and accommodate our every need. And the breakfast was delicious. If we come back to Santa Fe, this is where we'll stay. (by the way, it says there is "no parking" but there definitely is free on-site parking)
