Only negative would be that it is distant from downtown which might be a positive for some and a negative for others. Also cell phone service is quite poor in that location.

Owner's Response: This home is indeed a get away on 2.5 acres 15 minutes outside of town for those looking to have a convenient escape that isn't too far. Cell reception can be improved by getting on the wifi with your device. The home really is a wonderful get away with all the amenities one needs to bunker down.

Absolutely exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This property allows you to experience the charm and feel of Santa Fe and gives you the elbow room to do it! The location is great - if you want to enjoy the feel of getting away from it all, just staying at the house will give you that. In less than 10 minutes, you can be downtown, and grocery stores are even closer. In no time you can be at Bandelier or Taos and enjoy every moment of the breathtaking drive. The views from the house are spectacular, and it is very open and spacious. The house is very clean and well maintained, and the wifi kept my two daughters happy. We stayed over the Fourth of July holiday and everyone agreed that it was a wonderful experience! We will definitely stay at Twilight again!

The location and space are perfect. We chose it as we were going to some opera performances.

We did notice some things to consider: there was no dish washer detergent so we had to leave the unwashed dishes in the washer, there were no condiments and basic cooking ingredients which we usually find at VRBO properties ( cooking oil, spices, vinaigrette, new sponges, as examples). The location is not conducive to racing to the shopping area when we discovered things we needed for basic meal prep. And there are ants...we used Dawn to keep them at bay but they came in through the stove and the built in cutting board. We grilled, did not use the stove at all and did not leave any food out but still dealt with ants daily. We did let the cleaning group know why the dishes were not washed.

Just letting you know as you plan prep lists for the property.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear that you had a less-than-ideal experience at Two Casitas. We have over 50 homes throughout Santa Fe that are full-time rentals, so we are unable to keep them regularly stocked with cooking supplies. However, we are always happy to bring groceries to our guests if they feel something is missing. In regards to essentials and cleaning supplies like the dishwasher detergent, we are more than happy to provide you with that free of charge. In regards to the ants, Santa Fe is currently dealing with a city-wide infestation of Sugar Ants. They are completely harmless, however they are popping up at almost all of our homes regardless of cleanliness. We are sending Orkin pest control to all of our homes on a regular basis to try to keep this problem at bay, but unfortunately, there is no surefire way to 100% guarantee that the ants will be removed permanently. We apologize for the inconvenience, and we would like our future guests to know that we will do anything we can to accommodate you should you be inconvenienced by this problem.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have 2 kiddos, ages 7 and 3, and we spent a week there at the end of March. We had such a wonderful time! The house was cozy and we loved the layout, especially the kiva fireplaces which we used several times. The house is in a neighborhood in with the neighbors are fairly distant, in fact the backyard of all the houses is like commonspace and we spent a lot of time hiking around back there and having fun adventures with the kiddos in the biggest backyard ever! It was not too far from downtown, about 10 minutes if I remember right. Meow Wolf was definitely one of the highlights of the week. We also did a great telescope night sky tour, and visited Bandelier National Monument. Fantastic home and a wonderful family vacation. Thank you!

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.

Why Wendy Kapp chose Santa Fe

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!
