The home itself has a queen bed in the master with a flat screen TV. The second bedroom is equally comfortable with its queen size bed. Sharing the bathroom does not create an inconvenience as it is in the hallway allowing private assess for all. It has a bath tup and a shower inside the tub. Additional features of include perfectly maintained hard wood floors through out. An uncluttered yet warm and inviting environment created by the southwest furnishings. The layout is perfect, as there is open space with the fully equipped kitchen and dinning area which are a part of the living room. A flat screen TV is in the living room as well.

Lavender is located next door to Poppy and when leased together, these two homes offer a 4 bedroom option, which is ideal for larger groups traveling together or families looking to be within close proximity of each other.

Please note: this home is next to Bishop's Lodge Rd. and guests may occasionally experience light traffic noise. Most guests do not notice, but noise sensitive guests should take note.

Pet Friendly comment from Miles of "Pet Friendly Santa Fe"

"Lavender has a beautiful enclosed, front patio with plants for sniffing and a fountain I can sneak drinks of water from while scaring the birds away."

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 North Hills

Location, location, location is why 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!

The property was wonderful. Perfect location. House was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was not stocked with basics like most other vrbos we have stayed in. No measuring cups, oil, flour...basics. But if that is the only down side to a property, that's pretty good. Would definitely stay here again. Great communication with the owners and as a lovely treat, a bottle of wine and some snacks were waiting for us when we arrived. Well done!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled you enjoyed the home so much! The location is perfect for exploring all that Santa Fe has to offer. To be clear the kitchen is fully stocked with all pots and pans, plates and bowls and utensils one would need. There are also knives, peelers, can openers, etc. We will be sure measuring cups are replaced. The only food that is provided in addition to the wine, chips and salsa welcoming gift is coffee, salt and pepper, and powdered creamer. We hope to have you again in one of our many Two Casitas Homes.
