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.

Why Two Casitas, Santa Fe Vacation Rentals, Wendy Kapp chose Santa Fe

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!

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.

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.

Lovely house, great location, efficient service.

  • 5 of 5

This house is even better than it appears online. The location is perfect and the neighborhood is very quiet. Easy walk to restaurants, the Plaza, etc. Everything you might need is here. We will definitely rent from Two Casitas for our next holiday in Santa Fe. Thanks!

We Will Return!

  • 4 of 5

Clean, well maintained property very close to the heart of Santa Fe where we always like to be. We would definitely recommend this property. We were two couples and found it to be one of the best vacation rentals we have ever had. Our only glitch was that parking is tight, very tight for two cars, and we had to wait our departure am for a neighbor to wake up and move their car so we could get out.
