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!

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.

We greatly appreciate you sharing your experience and hope to see you back in Santa Fe soon!

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.

Wonderful retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. It was very quiet and in a great location--close to the city but far enough away that it is very peaceful. The views are beautiful, and the pictures of the interior of the home do not do it justice. The amenities (complimentary conditioning shampoo, lotion, tea, coffee, etc.) are terrific. We would definitely recommend this place to others and will return.

Very impressed..lovely place.

  • 5 of 5

First time ever leasing a house for a vacation...really nice..well furnished...comfortable...all the emenities of home...very clean and the views from the patios were great. Location is up in the hills,,,quiet...secluded yet minutes away from grocery store and downtown avtivities. Also casinos are just a 30 min. approx. drive from the house. Would recommend to everyone...oh..and the price we thought was reasonable for 4 days there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the excellent review, and for choosing Two Casitas for your first vacation rental experience! We always love when people discover the many advantages that we have over a hotel. Twilight's location actually is quite convenient if you have a car, and you get the benefit of seclusion and nature that staying in the city doesn't necessarily provide. We hope to see you in Santa Fe again some time soon!

Very restful

  • 5 of 5

The property was very restful. Your far enough from traffic so it is ultra quiet. Night skies were perfect for viewing the eclipse that happened while we were there. I loved the mountain and desert views. The house was lovely but my wife has trouble with stairs and that was a little challenging for her. The unstairs bath and bedroom is beautiful. Our only complaint was spotty cell service because of the hills and very erratic wifi service at the house.

Owner's Response: Hello, Thank you for staying with Two Casitas and a great review We are so delighted to hear you and your wife enjoyed Twilight. What a great bonus to enjoy the eclipse as well! Twilight is definitely the place to be for an eclipse! So sorry to hear the stairs for challenging for your wife. Also our apologies about the spotty cell service. We are always looking into ways to make our homes better, so thank you for the great feedback. With warm regards, Brittney Two Casitas
