Bedrooms 2
Space 1,100 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

Hidden on a quiet Eastside back street, in a neighborhood recalling the days of old Santa Fe, Artesano is a romantic two bedroom home completely remodeled in 2012. As soon as you step inside you will know the ordinary has been left behind. You will be living in a work of art - every aspect of the home has been handcrafted with remarkable attention to detail and harmony with its Southwestern surroundings. All within a short 10-minute walk to the galleries, shops and fine dining of Canyon Road and a 30-minute walk (1.6 miles) to the historic city center the Plaza.

The living room and kitchen began as a 1930’s adobe, and feature the original vigas above and new red sandstone floors below. A lovely wood burning fireplace awaits you in the living room. Relax comfortably in the living room on the colorful Afgan kazzak covered couch and Monterey chairs or put together an intimate dinner in the kitchen appointed with century-old hand-carved wood facings and new luxury appliances. Dine on a colorful mosaic table of lapis and other semi-precious stones beneath 200 year-old hand-painted wood columns and ceiling panels. Sip wine on the patio while watching the sun go down over the Jemez Mountains in the distance as you listen to the gentle burbling of the courtyard water fountain and hummingbirds buzzing overhead.

Begin and end your days in bedrooms decorated with beautiful imported carpets in each room, wood doors and hand-painted chests from the 18th century, ikat and hand-stitched suzani fabrics, scraped wood floors and coved adobe ceilings supported by hand-carved beams. Enjoy the new sub-floor forced-air central heating and cooling system, or open the windows to the cool mountain air and snuggle under hand-embroidered comforters. Each bedroom has its own full bath, with floor, walls and ceiling covered by original mosaics of brilliantly colored tiles collected from around the world, as well as hand-carved antique wood panels and soapstone latticework.

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 2013

Relax and Recharge in Beauty

  • 5 of 5

My goal this trip was to have a change of scenery with time to refocus, relax and recharge. I can happily report that this was the perfect place. Everything about this stunning, artistic home is first class. The location is private yet convenient to all Santa Fe sites including the Plaza and Canyon Road. We had our car so the off-street parking was handy and the wonderful Two Casita's team exceeded all expectations in communication and in making us feel welcome. The home is well-equipped, spotlessly clean (I'm picky) and we immediately felt as if we were staying at a treasured friend's home. We enjoyed having having Easter morning coffee on the patio while the birds provided background music. We are already planning a return visit.

A wonderful stay and you will not be disappointed.

(P.S. While in Santa Fe check out the innovative salad bistro /wine bar “Vinaigrette.” Great patio and a wonderful light dinner!)
