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.

Why Wendy Kapp chose Downtown

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!

Amazing Home Close to Plaza

  • 5 of 5

After driving six hours from Denver to Santa Fe, opening the door to Encantada was like stepping into a warm embrace. We immediately knew this was the perfect base to relax and explore Santa Fe. Thoughtful touches welcomed us including a bottle of wine, tortilla chips and green chili salsa. We were also pleasantly surprised to find a bag of Starbucks coffee in the fridge and put the coffee maker to good use first thing the next morning.

Two Casitas, the management company, provided a list on the refrigerator of local restaurants and activities in the area. We prefer to try local restaurants when we travel, so we ate at several on the recommended list (most were within walking distance of the house) and especially enjoyed Sazón. We also like to cook–and unlike many of the rental properties we’ve stayed at that “technically” have a kitchen, but there are almost no utensils or pans to actually cook with–the newly remodeled chef’s kitchen at Encantada has a large island and gas stovetop, and is fully stocked with utensils, pots and a very nice set of chef’s knives. There was even a blender for making our breakfast smoothies! After seeing how well equipped the kitchen was, I decided to make pasta with shrimp and a homemade pesto.

The rest of the house was just as well appointed as the kitchen. There are four bedrooms, one on the first floor and three on the second. Three have en-suite bathrooms and the fourth has a bathroom just outside it. There’s also a powder room on the first floor. The master bathroom is large and also looked newly remodeled.

There’s a balcony on the second floor where you can look out at the mountains, and several sitting areas outside where you can enjoy a quiet moment to read. There are TVs and sitting areas on both floors. The wide circular staircase is the centerpiece of Encantada. The three bedrooms on the second floor and the sitting area are each located off the circular landing that surrounds the staircase. We especially enjoyed the coziness of the sitting area on the second floor.

The description said it was close to the city plaza, and it was no exaggeration – it took us less than fifteen minutes to walk to the plaza and ten minutes to walk to the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. We will definitely book Encantada again!

Beautiful Santa Fe house close to the square

  • 5 of 5

This house was great!! We were 6 women from all over on our annual girls weekend. Really comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms. The kitchen was fab!! Big living room with lots of comfortable couches and a wood burning fire place (which we used everyday because it was chilly) Walking distance to the plaza was perfect for our group.

Stunning house on the hill!

  • 5 of 5

Beyond perfect! Stunning house on the hill. We booked this house for our family of 9. The photos looked amazing but in person this house is beyond incredible. From the decor to the layout of the rooms, we couldnt have asked for a more perfect house and location - close to the plaza - for our vacation. Thank you Two Casitas!

Beautiful home in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Encantada exceeded our expectations! When we arrived, we found the house was immaculate and we were delighted to find a welcome basket with a bottle of wine along with chips and salsa. A really nice touch. The house is so tastefully decorated with just enough decor but not too much to make it feel cluttered. We were four families staying in the house and we had more than enough room to spread out. We enjoyed sitting by the fire in the downstairs living room and listening to music. Everything we needed was provided for us from the firewood to the laundry detergent. We could also easily walk to the Plaza from the house. The only thing I would add would be bar stools in the kitchen. Thank you - we hope to come back soon!

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

Working with Two Casitas staff was great from beginning to end. The house was unbelievable. Four women pals each had our own bedroom, and bath. The decor was simple but gorgeous. The kitchen was huge, beautiful counters, new and high end appliances. Wish we had time to cook there. There were so many outdoor places to sit, all with tables and chairs, we didn't get to them all. aA dream place we'd love to return to!
