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

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

Villa Hermosa - Elegant Santa Fe Luxury. Walk to Canyon Road and the Plaza

Stunning Property in an Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

My family recently enjoyed a multi-generation reunion at Villa Hermosa. The house is elegant and well suited for entertaining with its open floor plan and indoor-outdoor feel. Sliding glass doors and windows fill the house with light. Cooking was a breeze with the well-appointed kitchen. The separated bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms facilitated the naps and other needs of a baby while preserving a pleasant tranquility for the grandparents.

The home is built with classical architectural features, yet is absolutely up to date with modern conveniences. The radiant floor heating made it very comfortable to join the baby on the rug. The home is well-maintained and feels brand new. We also enjoyed the yard with its mature trees and the garden with its manicured lawn.

It is a short walk to the art galleries on Canyon Road, the plaza downtown, and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. I will enthusiastically recommend this home to my friends and relatives.

Sabre Fe at its Finest

  • 5 of 5

What a gem! Every detail of the house is perfect and of the highest quality - the tall ceilings, luxurious beds and sheets, large kitchen, beautiful garden. The house was spotless and well-maintained. The location, walking distance to the plaza, is optimal for those wanting a true Santa Fe experience. The property manager Wendy was super responsive and helped make the experience seamless. Definitely worth every penny. I can’t wait to stay at Villa Hermosa next time I’m in Santa Fe!

Beautiful house and property, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family decided to take a trip to Santa Fe. We stayed in Villa Hermosa for a few days and it was spectacular! The house is extremely elegant and well-built. It feels very spacious in the house. It has nice tall ceilings and each room has its own bathroom. The master suite is a sight to behold. It has a huge walk-in closet and a spectacular bathroom. The landscaping around the property is charming. We had a lot of fun playing on the lawn with our son.

The location is unbeatable as well. We were one block away from Canyon Road, which has a bunch of nice cafes and galleries. We were also a short walking distance to the Plaza with all the great restaurants and shops. There's also a nice walking trail beside the house that takes you to a trailhead for the Dale Ball trails, which are very fun.

In the future when we visit Santa Fe we will definitely stay at Villa Hermosa again!
