About Two Casitas, Santa Fe Vacation Rentals, 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.

Two Casitas, Santa Fe Vacation Rentals, Wendy Kapp purchased this house in 1999

Why Two Casitas, Santa Fe Vacation Rentals, Wendy Kapp chose New Mexico

My Stay at Viejo Nuevo

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Viejo Nuevo was the best choice I made in my visit to Santa Fe. The home was immaculate and charming and better than I could have imagined with its amenities and prime location. I was so pleased with the customer service I received from the owner and look forward to returning to this beautiful home soon!

Fantastic house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved Viejo Nuevo. The house itself is a great combination of old Santa Fe adobe design and new contemporary style. The outdoor space is beautiful and very private. Located five blocks from the Plaza, we walked to restaurants, museums and other sites. We will definitely go back again.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a really great stay in Viejo Nuevo. We were a little hesitant at first having never stayed in a vacation rental and the house has some funky/contemporary decor- but the pictures don't do it justice. The space was so cute and full of light. I love one of the rugs, I want one for my house. We felt like we had plenty of space and the location was great for first time guests. We were close to some yummy restaurants in the rail district, but close to a couple grocery stores too so we could grab some treats. We will defintely be back to Santa Fe and with Two Casitas.

Stylish Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fun and relaxing time staying at Viejo Nuevo!! The decor was incredibly stylish and all the beds and furnishings were very comfortable. The rest of our group were staying in downtown hotels and we couldn't have been happier with our choice to be slightly removed from the bustle of downtown. The yard was a perfect oasis for relaxing mornings or an afternoon time out from a busy day of seeing the sights. The location was fabulous, we could simply stroll into town. We would certainly recommend this unit to others! Thank you for the lovely hospitality.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! Viejo Nuevo has a truly unique and spectacular style, and great care was put into making that a reality. We're happy that you appreciated it. The location in the railyard couldn't be more convenient, and it sounds like you took full advantage of both that and the yard. We hope to see you again in Santa Fe some time soon!

Perfect Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

A great rental in a perfect part of town. Hillside had just about everything we could want for a quiet, romantic week. It's secluded, and right in the middle of town at the same time. We'll definitely be going back next time we're in Santa Fe.

Owner's Response: PLEASE NOTE: THE REVIEW ABOVE IS NOT FOR THE VIEJO NUEVO LISTING ITS FOR A DIFFERENT HOUSE: Thank you for the review! Hillside is a perfect combination of convenient location and total privacy. We hope to see you in Santa Fe some time soon!
