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 New Mexico

Location, location, location is why I chose these homes; walk 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!

Gorgeous Views

  • 5 of 5

The Twilight House has amazing views and perfectly located, not to far from town but just far enough that its quiet and secluded. The beds are very firm so if your driving you may want to pack a memory foam pad, but other than that the house was super clean, well stocked with anything you would need. Two casitas is a great company to work with, this is my second time working with them, and Ive found no better company. So easy to communicate with. I love it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review! Twilight is one of our most underrated homes because it is just north of town, however it is so easy to drive to The Plaza that you hardly notice. We are glad that your experience with our staff was positive, and we hope to see you in Santa Fe again some time soon!

Twilight- beautiful and serene

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Twilight. Everything about the description was accurate. The property was pet friendly and it was clean and well maintained. We were welcomed with a sweet surprise (bottle of wine, chips, and salsa). We enjoyed our stay very much! We recommend Twilight for anyone that is looking for relaxation at a peaceful retreat. Thank you Wendy and Two Casitas for making our stay memorable!

Quiet with Great Views

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for views and quiet and this place fit exactly what we wanted. Upstairs master bedroom with big windows and balcony are the highlight of this comfortable house. When you arrive at the house it is unbelievably quiet and peaceful. After the first night we always wanted to be back to catch the amazing sunsets. The grocery stores and plaza area are less than 10 minutes and everything is easy to get to.

The Wow! Factor of Twilight

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely, Twilight is tranquil and serene, but "captivating sunsets" merely hints that the home's wow factor is the location. To reach Twilight, we exited the highway, crested a hill, and the most beautiful, panoramic vista hit us in the face. The home is tucked away into the foothills of a very nice neighborhood, similar to a scene on a New Mexico Christmas card. We sat on the back deck at night with a bottle of wine and watched as a multitude of stars popped out overhead. We were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay. Two Casitas checked up on us when we first arrived to make sure all was well and to answer any questions we might have. Thank you Two Casitas. We had a wonderful week at Twilight. Susie & Gerry.

Owner's Response: Wow! What what a fantastic review! This home is truly picturesque, and the way you described it absolutely gives it justice. It is truly amazing that you can have that scenery and experience while being a short seven minute drive from The Plaza. Thank you for choosing Two Casitas, and we hope to see you in Santa Fe again some time soon.
