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.

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!

More character than I could have imagined

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property! The home is beautiful, with everything a guest could want or need. I really felt that I was in Santa Fe; the house was so well decorated and charming. The location is an easy walk to shops and restaurants, yet far enough away to be very quiet. Our hosts were gracious and reached out with easy check in information. I would recommend this property to anyone.

Perfect!

The property was very clean, well equipped kitchen and very comfortable beds. The location is perfect for everything you could want in Santa Fe. Our small dog loved it as well. Will definitely stay here again! Also, the Two Casitas team couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Don't miss out!

Very comfortable and convenient!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Algre house. We spent 10 days here. It was extremely clean , well laid out and had plenty of space. The furniture was so comfortable that we felt rigth at home. The location was great becuase we were able to walk to the plaza and many other spots, then when we drove, we were centrally located. We had a large dog with us and so for us, we would have preferred a little more out door space for the dog. However we made plans at the last minute and were very lucky to get this house. Wendy and the Two Casitas team were extremely accommodating. When we return to Santa Fe, We would definitely stay in this house again, unless we bring the dog, then I would try to find something with a more accessible area for her to go outside without a leash. We would definitely recommend this house , and Two Casitas, to friends and family.

Right in town!!!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, this house is truly beautiful and you should be able to see that in the photos but in person it's like a million times cuter! Very Santa Fe. This "Bonita" house couldn't be closer to town because it's IN town- you can walk everywhere from here. Amenities were nice and we appreciated the contact we had at various times with the "Two Casitas" team/support. Many good restaurants in town, I would recommend both The Shed and La Choza and you can walk to both from here.

Only good things to say about this place =)

Sweet casita

  • 4 of 5

My two girlfriends and I stayed at the Casita while we explored Santa Fe for 4 days. Its in a lovely quiet location across the street from two amazing restaurants. It is located on the edge of the Rail Yard but is within ten minutes walk of the main plaza of old town Santa Fe. The bathrooms are small, but serviceable. Overall a very comfortable place to stay and home base for exploring Santa Fe.

We have some homes with larger bathrooms as well, so if you stay with us again and let us know that it is a priority, we will be happy to recommend a home that fits your needs exactly! We hope to see you in Santa Fe again some time soon.
