Easy access to lots to see and do is part of what makes The Residence Club at El Corazon a perfect place to stay, the other part is the well appointed and upscale amenities in each of these fantastic two bedroom residences. Our residence was a two bed room upstairs residence with a large living area with a fireplace, a dining area, and a well-equipted gourmet kitchen.

Of the 25 residences at The Residence Club at El Corazon de Santa Fe, some are rentals and others are fractional ownership properties. In fact, The Residence Club at El Corazon de Santa Fe is the city's only shared ownership vacation property in the historic district and it is a fractionally owned residential property. These residences are fractional ownership, not timeshares, one of the benefits of which is that as an owner, you can use them at anytime of the year and for as many days as you like - you're not restricted to a week during a particular time of the year. Buyers receive a deed for a one-eighth undivided interest in a beautiful, fully furnished residence. Because this is true deeded ownership, ownership interests can be sold, willed, deeded or placed in a trust, just like any other form of real estate. However, unlike conventional real estate, ownership in the Residence Club provides exclusive owner privileges and benefits in Santa Fe’s highly desirable downtown location. The Residence Club at El Corazon de Santa Fe offers its owners all of the benefits of ownership and more at a fraction of the cost of traditional ownership.
