Historic Eastside House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6, Home is situated on what many might call sa

One King Bed, One Queen Bed, One Queen Sleeper Sofa, Two Bathroom

Imagine yourself entering through a sky blue painted wooden door supported by classic adobe plaster walls into a patio you are never want to leave. Then you open the front door to your adobe home and the gracious living room is so inviting you and your family and friends decide to sit and gather around its stunning kiva fireplace and settle into your Santa Fe Style home. The living room is open and comfortable with an open space layout to both the inside and out side dinning areas. The large picture windows flood the main room with natural light. This room features high wood ceilings and vigas that are white washed adding to the light of this room. Here everybody can relax relax after a hard day exploring the sights and sounds of Santa Fe in front of large flat screen TV as well. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room as well so the home can accommodate up to six. The Mexican tile floors through out the house have radiant heat for those chili nights. In the summer you will be so comfortable with the central evaporative cooling.

PLEASE NOTE: This home is pet friendly but only for hypo allergenic dogs. Heres a link to a web site for the breeds that are included in this category


Your kitchen is delightful with hand made handsome New Mexican tin cabinetry and Mexican tile. White washed wooden cabinetry and of course is fully equipped. The kitchen opens to the dinning and living room.

Down the hall on the main first floor is your master bedroom. The master includes a king size bed with gorgeous bedding with its own 42” flat screen TV. One of the most inviting features of the master is the French doors which open to a private patio just off the master were the couple staying in this room can enjoy a glass of wine and some privacy. An old wisteria vine graces the portal giving the home its name. The master has a full bath with a walk in shower, separate tub and a double sink. All detailed with Mexican tile.

Upstairs you will get gentle views of the mountains out of the second bedroom windows. The second queen bedroom has its own bathroom with walk in shower and again delightful Mexican tile.

Enjoy Santa Fes famed sunsets from the quite oasis of your front patio. Equipped with table and chairs, patio furniture a portal, stone work a sweet birdbath and intimate gardens. Here you will be tempted to stay home and barbecue instead of taking in one of Santa Fes fine restaurants.

About Two Casitas, Santa Fe Vacation Rentals, Wendy Kapp

Having been raised in Chicago, Il.I knew did not want to spend my life in the City. When traveling out west back in 1975 I came through Santa Fe and fell in love with Northern New Mexico incredible sky's and landscape. 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 34 years makes me the perfect local hostess to give you local tips on making your stay most memorable.

Great townhouse in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable townhouse close to the plaza--the heart of Santa Fe. The property is extremely well maintained with all new, high end appliances. The evaporative cooling was a necessity in July. It is located in a quiet enclave but is just minutes from the plaza, and there is easy highway access to Taos, Abiqui, and Bandalier. We loved it.

Cozy rental

  • 4 of 5

wisteria is a very comfortable rental and an easy walk into the plaza. The common areas, kitchen and living room are quite comfortable and cozy. The outdoor front porch is a nice place to enjoy lunch. the house was very clean and two casitas management was super responsive and very eager to please- not that we really had any service needs. Yes - we would recommend this property.

Perfect Vacation Perfect Home

  • 5 of 5

Honestly I was a bit wary when I read the 3 star review below and was not sure if I should book or not. Boy was I glad I did. The criticism that guest had well in our experience were completely unfounded. The yard was absolutely gorgeous and the home impeccable and sparkling clean. Loved the bathrooms. You could tell the owner put a lot of love into the home and Two Casitas were fantastic hosts. We will be back and we will tell all our friends. We just love Santa Fe!
