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!

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!

Owner's Response: So happy you loved the home for your group. There are indeed so many places to explore there and being so close to the plaza it is hard to fit it all in. We look forward to hosting you again with Two Casitas!

Gorgeous property in great location

  • 5 of 5

The home is spacious, newly remodeled, well appointment and perfect for a couple or a large group. The property manager was super kind and efficient.

Best of allis the location, a short stroll from dining, coffee houses and the Plaza! Literally park on the driveway and walk anywhere downtown.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed this wonderful huge home just off the plaza, you can't beat that for large gatherings of family and friends. You are correct in that the entire home has just been remodeled and everything is of the highest standard. Balconies and a spacious patio make outdoor spaces an additional bonus to the two living rooms for relaxing. A one of a kind stairwell and excellent Southwest decor throughout make it a special getaway not to be forgotten.

Rebooked Already

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Santa Fe many times. This was our first time with Two Casitas at Encantada. We loved it so much we have already rebooked for next year! Beautifully decorated, kitchen well furnished, beautiful view and close to everything. Well done, Two Casitas!

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you've already booked your return to this great home perfectly located! We are thrilled your large group of mixed ages found the home to meet everyone's specific needs. Many homes this close to the plaza can't sleep such large groups so it is a special and unique place for sure.

Will Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a dream! We stayed here with the bridal party for our wedding weekend, and we couldn’t have picked a better spot. The inside is gorgeous, with that quintessential southwestern-vibe, and the location is so close to downtown. Overall, the house was perfect for entertaining and was the gathering spot for family and friends all weekend long, party and all. We will definitely look at staying here the next time we’re in Santa Fe for a long weekend.

Owner's Response: We are so thrilled the home worked for your wedding festivities for so many in the wedding party. With its fantastic outdoor and indoor space and recently remodeled kitchen it was great for the catering and many guests that came I heard. The huge open stairwell connects the upstairs and downstairs wonderfully making groups feel together while still spread out.
