Overview

About the property

House, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This house is the real thing! The home is over one hundred years old. The original owners of this house dug the dirt and baked the adobe bricks themselves to build their house. This authentic 500 square foot home has not been overly remodeled maintaining the feel of Santa Fe's old world charm. The location could not be better on the historic east side. Our guests have been coming back and requesting this little charmer for 15 years now!

Quiet and secluded, the house is only 1 1/2 blocks to Canyon Road by the art gallery district and where some of my favorite restaurants are, and less than a mile, approximately a 12-15 minute walk to the famed Plaza. You will stay 1/2 block to one of Santa Fe's local’s favorite bookstore and coffee shop. This casita is the first of the growing inventory of "Two Casitas," furnished and painted in Mexican style, this spacious studio features a king size bed, flat screen cable TV and comfortable sleeper sofa in the same room, brick floors with a gorgeous Russian sumac rug. The house is graced with original paintings by well-known local artists such as famed Phyllis Kapp of Waxlander gallery (owner of Two Casitas, Wendy Kapp's mother.) This casita offers a full and separate kitchen and dining area. Casa Paloma has a private bath with a shower only. Warm yourself by the gas-burning fireplace or in the hot tub. Soak up the sun on the front portal, or porch. Double French doors open up into your large back yard as well. Watch the sun set and gaze at all the stars from mhere. Flag stone patio table and chairs with barbeque, a shared yet completely private and enclosed hot tub with the three-bedroom house next door. Maraposa. Paloma casita is a very private and separate guesthouse from the main house. If you have a larger party, you can also rent the Maraposa all at the same address in this compound.

Additional fees on this property are 15.456% tax. and a one time cleaning fee of $75.

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 1998

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

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!

The Paloma was a great unit!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Santa Fe and we had such a good time we plan on returning next year! The Paloma was charming and comfortable. It had everything we needed in it and it was clean. Wendy the owner was quick to respond to a text when I had questions. The location was perfect too.

Great Location Comfortable Casita for Two

  • 4 of 5

Charming Paloma Casita was walking distance to Canyon Road and close to the Plaza. Super convenient location. The Casita was clean, had a well equip kitchen and hot shower! We had a lovely time staying here. The only negative was the king bed mattress slopes to the center. It's not awful YET but it is showing wear. Soon to be replaced I hope.

Location, Location, Location....great place to stay in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We used to have an 1860s adobe, so we know what old adobes are like. This is not a modern unit, but has wonderful ambiance and is so close to Canyon Road, the Plaza, and all the wonderful galleries and restaurants. We hope to stay here again next year. You get to enjoy everything in Santa Fe from a perfect and walkable location.

GREAT LOCATION & WONDERFUL BACK YARD!

  • 4 of 5

This darling studio casita has a great location. It's just off of the beautiful Canyon Road galleries, and walk a little further to the downtown square and museum areas. The amenities are great, including an outdoor hot tub and a beautiful backyard and garden with nice outdoor seating. The kitchen is well-stocked and the bathroom, although not large, is quite sufficient. The bed is very comfortable, and the customer service was always available. The negatives are not many. The wifi gave us trouble there. It wasn't able to connect with our server, but our wifi was fine elsewhere. The painting needs to be redone as it looks old, but we really didn't mind that since the apartment was very clean. You should ask if the owners have given the renters next door a different key code from the key code on this studio apartment. We found out by accident they have the same code, so we reported that to the owners. They said they would change that right away. We will stay here again when we return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! We're glad that you enjoyed your stay, overall! Santa Fe has poor infrastructure for internet, so it's not uncommon for internet trouble to arise. We apologize that it was an inconvenience! We are always in the process of fixing up Paloma, and a paint job is definitely on the list. And yes, the Keypad code has been changed. We hope to see you in Santa Fe again some time soon!

Great location, clean and cute property with everything we needed.

  • 4 of 5

The casita felt like an authentic Santa Fe experience and the location was great for getting to Canyon Road (a few blocks) and the Square (about a mile). We walked nearly everywhere we wanted to go.
