About the property

Wonderful Views

This two/three-bedroom adobe classic is nestled in the hills of the historic Cerro Gordo neighborhood just two miles from the Plaza and 1 mile to Canyon Road. Its traditional features include a kiva fireplace, Mexican tile, and brick floors and gorgeous vigas throughout. It is ideal for quietly enjoying the lovely mountain views, shopping and dining on nearby Canyon Road, or relaxing after skiing or hiking the nearby Dale Ball trails.


All of the rooms have French doors that open onto the covered portal with magical views of the canyon and foothills. The portal is perfect for outdoor dining and the well-equipped kitchen has a gas range.


There is ample privacy between the two bedrooms, with one queen in each bedroom. The bedrooms are located at either end of the home offering lots of privacy. (See the floor plan in the photo set). The master bedroom is reached through the den or French doors.  The third bedroom at this time is set up as a den/bedroom. This room can be easily used as a third sleeping area and can accommodate up to three people with its single bed and queen size sleeper sofa. The master bath has a long old fashion claw-foot tub and whimsical Mexican tile and sink. There is no shower at this time in this bathroom. The den/bedroom shares the Jack and Jill bathroom with the master bedroom. The guest bath, located just outside the second bedroom, offers a beautifully tiled walk-in shower. 

This home does not offer cooling; however, it is so cool in the summer and the home has ceiling fans. A landline is available for guest use. Cell service is intermittent although wifi-enabled cell phones work well on the house internet. Thank you for not smoking at this home. The home has a steep driveway, which could require a 4-wheel drive vehicle in the winter months. Well-behaved pets are welcomed.

To top it all off, this home features a stunning elevated deck with a recessed hot tub that is perfect for stargazing and relaxing in New Mexico's enchanting countryside.

"Live like a local, it's the next best thing to living here!"

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 Historic Eastside

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!

Beautiful scenery and relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

The property is very private and serene. The doors open to the outside and allow for a very scenic and relaxing atmosphere. The fireplace adds a great touch in the cold months and creates a great place to gather. The hot tub puts you in the mountainside and among the trees. Very clean house with so much charm.

Beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed was available to us. The one thing that we noticed was that all the sidewalk solar lights weren't working, so it was very dark up to and around the hot tub. Otherwise it was a stellar stay!

Owner's Response: We are happy you had a great visit and enjoyed the tub and picturesque setting of this home. We have since fixed the solar lights and it is easy to see your walk in the dark now.

Beautiful and tranquil home

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a beautiful part of Santa Fe. The outdoor porch, chairs and tables were a wonderful place to relax, watch the sunset on the nearby hills, and enjoy a nice glass of wine & dinner.

The rooms were spacious and stayed comfortable during both the warmth of the days and cool of the nights. Great family room for movie night and excellent open kitchen / living room for hanging out together while getting a meal put together.

Would definitely come again.

Welcome from the owners

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for considering our home in Santa Fe for your travel! Santa Fe is a special place, and this house is a perfect way to experience both the natural beauty and the many attractions of the area. All of the rooms have traditional wood, adobe, and brick elements, along with beautiful light and views. The French doors of each room open onto a long porch, so you can feel as if you are living outside – while enjoying the comforts of a home. The house lends itself to whatever activity level you wish. We love the privacy of the porch, where we can enjoy the breeze, listen to birds, and delight in wonderful views of the mountains. If you like to hike or mountain bike, there’s a trail system just a few steps from our driveway, or you can drive about a mile to a relaxing walk through a Nature Conservancy preservation area or other more vigorous hikes. A short drive also takes you to Canyon Road, the Plaza, or the access road for the Santa Fe ski area. Or just relax -- stay home, take advantage of the grill or the well-equipped kitchen, enjoy the views, watch a movie, or browse our books... Whatever you choose, we hope you will love the house and the setting as much as we do. Don’t hesitate to contact our property manager with any questions or comments, before, during, or after your stay. Welcome to Canyon View Retreat!
