Located in the exclusive East-side neighborhood two blocks from Canyon Road, the famed arts and crafts historic district. The Art and Soul of Santa Fe; Canyon Road boasts more art galleries per capita then any city other than New York. This light filled adobe home is just around the corner from a quaint tea house/coffee shop and three of my very favorite Santa Fe restaurants! Geronimo`s, El Farol, and The Compound. El Caminto is located 1.2 miles from the Plaza, which is about a 20 minute walk.

The furnishings are tasteful and impeccable. Your vacation home has a gourmet kitchen, with granite counter tops, high-end appliances as well as a large dining room table. There is a kiva fireplace in the kitchen as well. A second kiva fireplace makes the queen-size bedroom romantic and something well beyond charming. There is a gorgeous bathroom off of the bedroom with a walk-in shower. Your bedroom has a walk- in closet.

In addition to the sun room, study, kitchen, bedroom and bath, is the most inviting roof deck ever with upholstered seating as well as a small table for dining al fresco.

About Wendy Kapp and Associates

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 and Associates chose Santa Fe

Location, location, location is why I chose these homes for our visitors. We want our guests to have the convenience of walking everywhere.

What makes this condo 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!

A perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

The home is in a beautiful, serene residential setting- a 20 min walk to the plaza, and very close to Canyon Road. We walked everyday! The house was so tastefully updated just beautifully decorated. It didn't take us long at all to feel right at home. We would recommend this beautiful home to anyone and we hope to return soon! It was such a treat!

Beautiful condo in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

This one bedroom condo was the perfect size for my husband and me for a long spirit reviving weekend in Santa Fe. The location is a quiet and excellent walking neighborhood close to everything. The condo is on the second floor so has beautiful views from every window and on cool evenings we were able to sit outside on the very private terrace. Air conditioning was available our one hot day. Perfectly appointed too.

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful place has everything you'll need to make your stay comfortable. The location is great-- close to Canyon Road, not far from the plaza. The terrace is lovely and private and is a great place to start and end the day. I highly recommend this apartment-- I don't think I've ever stayed in a nicer place.

Authentic Experience, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I chose El Caminito for our recent trip to Santa Fe and were so pleased with our decision! Tucked away near some of the best locations in town, this little adobe "treehouse" does not disappoint. We took multiple naps in the beautiful sunlit living room, enjoyed the cool Santa Fe breezes wafting through in the evenings, and loved getting to go to the nearby Santa Fe river for our morning walks. You can't beat the proximity to Canyon Road, the Plaza, and all the great restaurants, galleries, and shops that abound! When we tired of eating out, we were so thankful for the large and well-appointed kitchen that El Caminito offers. Staying at El Caminito only added to the enchantment of Santa Fe and her narrow, winding dirt roads, historic adobe homes with bright trim and beautiful flowers, and the feeling of a home away from home! We would definitely stay here again. You will love working with Wendy and the team at Two Casitas!

Wonderful casita in the trees

  • 5 of 5

We loved the gourmet kitchen with stainless appliances and the built in seating next to the windows. The light filled living room with the feeling that we were in the trees was just wonderful. The walk in closet was very nice and the bathroom and shower was great. The casita is very clean and very well located. We walked a couple of blocks to Canyon Road to go shopping and to El Farol for tapas and champagne. It's also a nice walk to the Plaza and other restaurants. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Santa Fe.
