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.

Two Casitas, Santa Fe Vacation Rentals, Wendy Kapp purchased this condo in 1999

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

Absolutely wonderful! They thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Two casitas was the perfect place for is. It is located less than a mile from the plaza and in a nice, quiet area. The house itself is adorable, with a very nice southwest feel. It was so nice to be greeted with chips and salsa, plus a nice bottle of wine! We all loved this place and would definitely stay again.

Wonderful place to relax in Santa Fe!

  • 4 of 5

What a great place for two couples or a family. Comfy, everything you could wish for in the kitchen. Off street parking is helpful - grocery stores are very close. There are patios and balconies and porches to be enjoyed.

We will be back! As a side note, when we mentioned a few things we'd like, the response was immediate -- within minutes. So, if it's not perfect for you, it soon will be!

Convenient and charming

  • 4 of 5

Good location in walking distance to plaza, railway district, etc. Charming decor, very southwestern! Four middle age friends having a girls getaway found it very suitable. Unfortunately, we couldn't use the outdoor patio area because it was very dirty. Windows were also filthy. Recommend Restaurant Tour through Santa Fe Cooking School.

Nice condo

We enjoyed our stay here. The place is within easy walking distance of the plaza. Overall it was very clean and comfortable for us and our two young daughters. We were disappointed that there was no steam shower.

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

I arrived right at check in time and the manager was there to make sure all was ready. I discovered that the wireless was not connecting properly. He spent the next hour on the phone with techs making sure all was well. Way beyound the call of duty!

The location is great, the instructions were easy and accurate and the billing very simple.

I would recommend this to anyone .

Snowboarding Surprise!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property. The amenties were above what I expected. Linens and towels were of great quality. The kitchen was stocked well and there was plenty of china and glasswear. We were surprised at how quiet it was. The house was immaculate! Wendy was more than helpful on all my questions before arrival and during our stay. Santa Fe is a fabulous city with great snowboarding, we were pleasantly surprised and hope to be back. After 10 days we did not want to leave!!!!!!!!!
