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 Downtown

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!

Adorable Casita just a 15-minute walk to the Plaza

  • 5 of 5

Our little casita was adorable. We were welcomed with fresh flowers, wine and chips and salsa. The house was just adorably decorated with a fully functional kitchen. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom lovely. The only concerns we had were that (1) the furniture in the living area was not comfortable for sitting more than a few minutes. (2) The casita sits very close to Alameda Avenue, which is a busier street that I anticipated, especially on Saturday night. Because I had my white noise machine I was able to sleep ok. My friend in the back bedroom had no problem with the street noise.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review and we are happy you enjoyed your time there. The convenience to all of Santa Fe's attractions does have it close to a street but by most standards this is a relatively quiet street and by 10pm completely dead. We hope to have you again in one of many Two Casitas homes.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visited Santa Fe...stayed at Desert Breeze and loved it. The proximity to old downtown was as good as you can get. The house seemed bigger on the inside that it seemed from the outside and was perfect for the two of us. The décor was really well done.

Great location, great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Quaint adobe-walled home in a great location. The hosts were very friendly and welcomed us with flowers when we arrived. A list of local recommendations and magazines were left on the table so that we could get the most enjoyment from our stay. Very thoughtful hosts and a great home!
