What a rare and wonderful find to come across a five bedroom home with 360% views of our mountain ranges while being walking distance to the Plaza!

Relax on your spacious patio and gaze at New Mexico’s famous skies. Experience a Santa Fe sunrise peaking over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the east, a fire-red sunset over the Jemez Mountains in the west and the sparkling city lights of Santa Fe at night. The home is situated on a one-half acre desert lot surrounded by pinion and juniper trees. It crowns a hilltop just blocks north of Santa Fe's 400-year-old historic district.

There are several patios and wooden decks surrounding the house with outstanding views throughout the day. Out of the south-facing, plate-glass windows you can see the peaks of the Sandia Mountains outside of Albuquerque some 50 miles away! Dining on the south covered patio is outstanding.

Weather you are getting together with family, having ?a reunion, a girlfriends trip, a business retreat or just about any special occasion this home fits the bill. Montoya House was recently redecorated in Southwest style with love and taste ?and many interesting visual arts. You will find an entertaining mix of original Southwest artifacts, eclectic local art, and both antique and modern furnishings.

The rambling floor plan boasts a total of 3,000 square feet. 2,250 square-feet of the home are a four-bedroom three bath home. Attached to the main part of the house is a 750 square-foot, one-bedroom 'nanny quarters' with its own kitchen.

So the house is five bedrooms and four baths altogether.

In the guest or nanny quarters you have a full one-bedroom home. The bedroom can easily be made into a king bed or two twin beds. There is a private bathroom with walk in shower. There is a complete kitchen with all the amenities of home including a dishwasher. A lovely natural wood breakfast bar adds to the warmth of the space and opens to the living room. The very comfortable living room with its leather coach and comfy chairs has an impressive Kiva fireplace and flat screen TV. There is a washer/dryer as well.? This part of the house features brick floors and a private entrance and opens up to an unbelievable outdoor patio. Who ever? stays in this part of the home can have as much privacy as they want or easily join the group.

As you enter the four-bedroom part of the home there is a spacious living room with picture windows and a large fireplace. There is a leather sleeper sofa for an extra guest and plenty of chairs for all to gather and stare into the fire or the flat screen TV. Lovely hard wood floors? and original artwork add to the charm of the main room as well as this entire part of the home.

From here you can go into the kitchen/dining area, which is an open space. It has a beautiful table and chairs that actually sits ten people comfortably. ?The kitchen is fully set up to cook a meal for all of you. Do you need a little break from your large crowd? No worries, step out onto two more patios with their own table and chairs for a little meditative quite.

Off of the dinning area are two bedrooms. One of the two is another master with queen bed and its own kiva fireplace. There is a small flat screen TV in this room. Here you will find beautiful bedding and decor as well as a full bath. The shower is inside the bathtub. ?There is a bathroom with large walk in shower in the hallway between the two bedrooms and the third bedroom next to it. This bedroom can be made up into two twins or one king. ?Every room has unique style and charm. Your party will be fighting over which bedroom they will claim for your visit, as one is more charming than the next.

Downstairs are two more or the fourth and the fifth bedrooms and one full bathroom with a walk in shower. The furnishings and fun decor are so Santa Fe. One bedroom has a queen and a single in the same room. The next has a king or two twins depending on what works best for you.

Now this is amazing. Just to top it off there a large work out room with equipment down stairs. There is another washer and drier downstairs as well.

The main patio in the house all of you will basically live in in the summer. Well just come and see it or check out the photos and you will know why I say this.

About Two Casitas, Santa Fe Vacation Rentals, Wendy Kapp

A note from Wendy Kapp- Owner of Two Casitas Santa Fe Vacation Rentals

Having been raised in Chicago, my soul longed for the massive blue skies and mountains I first saw when my mother, well-known watercolor artist Phyllis Kapp of Waxlander Gallery, introduced me to this magnificent area when I was 6 years old.

While returning west in 1975, I came through Santa Fe and fell in love with Northern New Mexico once again. I found the people here, especially back in '75, to be the most authentic people I had ever met and I decided to make Santa Fe my home. My extensive knowledge from living here for since 1975 makes me the perfect, local hostess to give you tips on making your stay memorable. I hope you come to love Santa Fe and, in-turn Two Casitas, as much as I do.

Two Casitas, Santa Fe Vacation Rentals, Wendy Kapp purchased this house in 2001

Why Two Casitas, Santa Fe Vacation Rentals, Wendy Kapp chose Santa Fe

Location, location, location is why I chose these homes for our visitors. We want our guests to have the convenience of walking everywhere

What makes this house unique

When you stay with Two Casitas you stay like a local, not like a tourist, and experience Santa Fe like you live here. Who knows, maybe you will someday!

Great home in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Two Casitas was wonderful! We walked back and forth to the plaza multiple times. Each of the rooms have different benefits, so it didn't feel like any couple had to make a big compromise on their room. The owners were very easy to work with and the check-in/check-out process couldn't have been easier. To top it all off, the views from many different windows of the house were amazing! Would definitely suggest this home for bigger parties who want to be close to everything there is to do in Santa Fe.

Great house for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with 5 adults and two kids. There was more than enough space for everyone. The views from the house are beautiful and the large outdoor space was wonderful to relax and watch the sunsets. I would definitely stay here again. We have rented many houses in different cities across the country, and this house was one of the best we have stayed at.

Great for family group of 12

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with two families of 5 and 2 adults (who's grown kids couldn't make the trip) and the house could not have been more perfect. All of the kids (6) were downstairs and very comfortable and the two sets of parents were upstairs off of the kitchen while the 2 empty nesters had their own things in a separate space. Seriously great and we would stay there again in a heart beat. Beautiful views from every window. About 30 min to the ski base, beautiful drive!!! Book this house, worth every penny. Thank you for the memories!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review! This is the ideal home for large groups in Santa Fe, and we are glad that you were comfortable. The views are truly spectacular in the home and on the way up to the ski basin, and we are glad you enjoyed them. We hope to see you in Santa Fe again some time soon!

Lovely weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great weekend staying at Piñon Vista! The house was fully stocked with everything we needed and more. We had a house full of friends/families from NYC and California and the house was the perfect place for us - it's a very comfortable space. Wendy and her crew were super responsive and super nice - she even called us the week before we arrived to make sure all was well. Absolutely great experience all around - we would love to stay here again on our next Santa Fe trip :)

Attractive, comfortable, and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

This attractive, comfortable, and well equipped home in a beautiful setting worked extremely well for our group of eight women who gathered from various locations for a long weekend in Santa Fe. We appreciated how welcoming and easy Two Casitas made our stay. We did not walk to the Plaza. The views were definitely as advertised!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! Piñon Vista is an excellent choice for larger parties. We are glad that you enjoyed our attention to hospitality and service. Walking to The Plaza is easy from this home, however it is always good to have options with a car or public transit. We hope to see you in Santa Fe again some time soon.
