Dream Catcher is truly a dream vacation come true. You will be situated up a small incline, which allows soft views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the romantic Sun and Moon Mountain. Enjoy these vistas gazing out of your windows and on your second floor patio. Two Casitas boast their homes to be the very best locations in town. Dream Catcher is no exception. On the historic East side just two blocks from most of Santa Fes’ galleries and some of my favorite restaurants you are also only about an 18 minute walk to the Plaza (.9 miles). This home is a two-story adobe condo. Two bedrooms, two bath, two lovely patios as well as two kiva fireplaces! One Kiva is downstairs for everybody to enjoy, and warm your selves in the winter months. The other is in the master bedroom adding to the romance of your stay. The king size master bedroom is spacious with picture windows, high ceilings wood floors and vigas. It has a tranquil sitting area, which is so inviting you may just take a break from sight seeing and sit down and read. Off of this room is your spectacular upstairs patio with the view of Sun and Moon Mountain. The home has been lovingly remodeled and decorated by the owners with impeccable taste and style. Park your car and walk everywhere. Situated in a quiet residential neighborhood you have the feeling of being secluded yet you are right in the hub of everything that defines Santa Fe. A visitor or a local could not ask for a better location. This is prime real estate in Santa Fe. Dream Catcher is perfect for a family or couples traveling together. Why stay in a Santa Fe hotel when you can all stay together in one home! There is ample room and available light with French doors opening up to the patio table and chairs and gas burning barbecue make the patio a fun place for all to gather.

About 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.

Wendy Kapp purchased this condo in 1998

Why Wendy Kapp chose Historic Eastside

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 condo 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!

Almost want to keep this secret to myself

  • 5 of 5

The Dream Catcher is really amazing... the kind that takes your breath away and let's out a good sigh. Quiet location with beautiful views from the master and the roof patio. Location is slightly further out, but if you don't mind walking a stroll you can easily make it to Canyon Road and the Plaza. There are even nearby hiking trails. Well equipped kitchen. Laundry attached. The winding stairs can be worrisome if you have small kids, but my kids were so tired at the end of each day, they didn't even notice them. Also radiant heat floors were heavenly. Felt like I was in a 5 star hotel. Will definitely be returning to this property <3

charming oasis !

  • 5 of 5

From the day we were to arrive Two Casitas was in contact with me making sure all my questions were answered. The place is beautiful! Fully stocked with all we needed for a cozy comfortable stay. Close to EVERYTHING yet tucked away for privacy and quiet. We walked to the town square and Canyon Road everyday! I will definitely come back to Dream Catcher!

Lovely home somewhat close to the plaza

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband, mom and 3 year old daughter. It was a long walk to the Plaza only because of my 62 year old mom and 3 year old daughter. We opted to drive to the plaza and pay to park. If it were just my husband and I we would have been comfortable walking. However, very close to Canyon Road if you desire that too.

The home had everything that one would expect for a rental. The only thing I would point out for travelers with young children..... There is a spiral staircase that has LARGE gaps between each spindle that a young child could slip through and fall to a hard surface below. And there was not a child gate on premise so we improvised with a step ladder and chairs propped against the stairwell. I'm sure that this is/was apparent when we signed up for the rental, but we missed it.

Overall, we were very happy with the rental and would use it again when returning to Santa Fe.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! Yes, this home is about a 25-30-minute walk to The Plaza depending on your walking speed, so having a car can help. Thank you for the warning about the staircase as well, as if parents are worried about their children, it is something to consider. We're glad you enjoyed your stay overall, and we hope Two Casitas will host your next trip to Santa Fe.

Beautiful Santa Fe Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here and our vacation to Santa Fe was great this year. The weather was warmer than usual which was actually a nice surprise- it was almost like visiting in early Spring or something. The Plaza and the shops and Canyon Road are all how we remembered them and the house that we stayed in accommodated all of our short-distance walking travel. Additionally, the house was clean, quiet and very well represented in the photos was browsed through before booking our stay. We couldn't recommend Santa Fe or the "Dream Catcher" house we stayed in more, and their customer service and staff were outgoing and helpful.

Beautiful, cozy, but with lots of space

  • 5 of 5

This property was as close to perfect as I have ever experienced. Two beds and baths, excellent kitchen and living spaces including upper and lower outdoor seating. We loved it and the staff at Two Casitas was wonderful with directions, recommendations, and preparation! We will definitely be back to stay even longer.

Charming and warm

  • 5 of 5

As a first time visitors to Santa Fe, we were a bit overwhelmed in trying to figure out where to stay. Friends of ours recommended that we call Two Casitas Vacation Rentals to find our lodging. The proprietor, Wendy, was incredibly helpful and placed us in a reasonably priced Adobe Pied–à–Terre named Dream Catcher, which is located right in the center of town in an historic housing complex.

Within easy walking distance from the Plaza or Canyon Road, this little gem lived up to its name. The house is warm, inviting and has a comfort level that immediately draws you in. The furnishings are charming and everything you'd expect is there, including two fireplaces and an upstairs terrace.

For us, after a day of sightseeing, the norm became sitting in the delightful tree lined courtyard, listening to the water feature and enjoying a good glass of wine or if I was lucky enough, a chilled martini made by my favorite girl.

We would recommend Two Casitas and this charming place to rest your head in the City Different.
