Detailed Description:

Dramatic Eastside home with spectacular mountain views North, East and West! Not many Eastside homes can boast views like this! Watch the sun come up and go down from your windows and expansive deck, illuminating our incredible mountain ranges. You will see both the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the East and the Jemez Mountains to the West. Enjoy the well equipped kitchen, remodeled in 2017 with all-new appliances. Make as many meals at home as you like. All this and you are less than a 10-minute walk to the gallery district and some of the finest dining in Santa Fe on Canyon Road and 30 minutes to the historic center, The Plaza.

Surrounding your home experience the splendor of the Southwest’s outdoors and the landscaped yard from your portals, amazing deck and patios. 2,200 square feet with central air for living areas and master bedroom, supported by single-room units in the master bath and guest room. When you enter the home you will be struck by the open space layout of the grand room with the large fireplace and original artwork throughout. Santa Fe style with vigas, high coved ceilings, hardwood, tile and brick floors, bancos and three fireplaces. Large glass doors and windows flood light into the living room and open up to views of the Santa Fe River valley and surrounding mountains.

There is plenty of room for family and friends to sit around the large dining table with its gorgeous chandelier in the grand room. The master suite has a king bed, its own kiva fireplace and a large, custom bathroom that is nothing short of marvelous. The master bath has a big soaking tub and a beautifully tiled walk-in shower with a steam unit. The guest suite has a queen bed and its own kiva fireplace. The guest bathroom opens into the hallway but can be closed off for private access from the guest bedroom. The library can be a third bedroom with its privacy curtains and single daybed and trundle for the kids or additional guests who can also use the hallway bathroom. Barbecue on your choice of gas or charcoal outdoor grills. This house is, simply put, a piece of heaven that you will want to return to year after year. You will love it!

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

"Hummingbird has lots of outdoor space to enjoy with your family, but you will need to be leashed as it is not enclosed; however, there is a fully enclosed dog run just for you! They can always walk with you down to Canyon Road for a bit of exercise and culture. Now where else can a pup have both!"

Additional fees on this property are 9.456% tax and a one time cleaning fee of $150.

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.

Wendy Kapp purchased this House in 2009

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.

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!

                                                                  We stayed at Hummingbird with another couple and the home was perfect. It is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood yet close to downtown. The layout of the bedrooms gave both couples privacy. The home is thoughtfully decorated in understated southwestern style with lovely artwork. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for cozy meals at either the comfortable dining table or outside on the spacious deck. The deck is the best feature of the home, with outstanding views, seating areas, and gas grill. The customer service provided by Two Casitas was exemplary with informative emails and texts every step of the way. I highly recommend this property for your stay in Santa Fe.

                                                                  Perfect house in perfect location

                                                                  Rob H.Houston, Texas

                                                                  We've been coming to Santa Fe for several years now, and this is the best house we've rented. Usually, one has to sacrifice views for proximity to downtown Santa Fe, but this place strikes the perfect balance. Close to the Plaza and galleries on Canyon Road (by car - on foot would be another matter) and with beautiful mountain views from the spacious deck. The house is laid out perfectly for 2-4 people to relax quite comfortably both inside and out. Master bedroom king size bed was very comfortable. A definite plus as beds are usually the weak points in rentals. The kitchen and master bath seem to have been updated recently, and they are both very functional. Both are well-appointed with high-end fixtures and appliances. We experienced no problems during our week long stay. Local management offered fast and easy check-in and check-out. As far as we're concerned, this will be our first choice anytime we come back to Santa Fe.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Frank B.Lake oswego, or

The views of the city and mountains were exceptional. We used the well equipped kitchen and outdoor grill a couple of times. We also really enjoyed Terra Cotta Wine Bistro, and Raaga.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you for the review! Hummingbird's best feature is the patio that provides the incredible views you mentioned. We are glad that you took advantage of everything the home and Santa Fe has to offer! We hope to see you in Santa Fe again some time soon.

                                                                  A lot of house to enjoy.

                                                                  lynne m.

                                                                  This house has a lot of living space for a two bedroom house. It is listed as a three bedroom but it is really a two bedroom with a pull out trundle bed in a study. The study is on the first floor across from the kitchen and the other bedrooms and bathrooms are on the bottom floor. It worked fine for our short stay but this should not be listed and priced as a three bedroom. It has a wonderful large porch to enjoy the santa fe mountains but it is a steep uphill walk from Canyon Road. The house is beautifully decorated with a great kitchen.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

We are happy to hear you enjoyed the porch at Hummingbird as well as the decor and kitchen. We also greatly appreciate your feedback regarding the listing, but would like more information as Hummingbird is listed on Homeaway, VRBO, and twocasitas.com as a 2 bedroom house. Two Casitas strives to provided the most accurate descriptions/photos available and are happy to correct any discrepancies. We also make ourselves readily available during the reservation process to address any questions prior to booking/arrival.

                                                                  Thank you again for sharing your experience and for staying with Two Casitas

                                                                  Anne D.

                                                                  This house is beautiful and has all the accommodations you will need to make your stay delightful. It is close to the Canyon Street Art District which I find much nicer than downtown Santa Fe as it is more charming and less touristy. The deck and views are fantastic from here, and you feel very secluded although you are right next door to other people. Great location and casita!

                                                                  Owner's Response:
