Overview

About the property

1 Bed, 1 Sleeper Sofa, 1 Bath House (Sleeps 3)

You can not ask for more charm than in this darling one bedroom casita. Honoring the old world traditions of Santa Fe the recent remodel of this historic adobe home is nothing short of delightful. Casita Besos is situated in Santa Fes finest East Side neighborhood. You will be staying just a couple blocks away from some of the best restaurants Santa Fe offers. Geronimos, El Farol, The Compound and the Tea House. From here you can stroll down Canyon Road which boasts more art galleries than any American City other than New York. The architecture and old trees running along the "Acequia Madre" (Spanish for "Mother Ditch" ) will tantalize you as you walk down from here to the Plaza and Rail Yard Districts. The historic Acequia Madre is the street your casita is on. This Acequia was built by the Spanish people when they first arrived in Santa Fe and was the original water supply for the people who farmed this area. Casita Bonita itself is a cozy one bedroom adobe home with a full kitchen and a kiva fireplace in the living room. The home features Spanish wood carving through out and vigas. You will enjoy a sweet back and front yard. The home is very private and inviting. A queen size bedroom. The living room has an open concept with the kitchen and dinning area. There is a large chair that opens up into a sleeper for an extra guest. The bath room is spacious. You will want to come back year after year to Casita Besos.

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 Northeast

Location, location, location is why I 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!

Cute little Casita

  • 4 of 5

So convient to Canyon Road and other SF attractions - about a mile or so walk to the plaza. Check in/check out super easy. The Two Casita staff is very attentive and the casita is well appointed.

Great stay - all the way around!

We had a wonderfully time. Used the fireplace and basic kitchen. Very comfortable. There wasn’t anything extra that we needed.

Perfect Casita for Two!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Besos Casita! The photos give a very accurate picture; the perfect size for 2 people; a quiet area @ a 5-10 minute walk from Canyon Road galleries, delicious restaurants, and plenty of great "browsing". We were pleasantly surprised to find a washer & dryer on site: some of the information didn't indicate this.

We had problems with the key on arrival. Thank you, DUNCAN, for arriving promptly to fix this!

We'd wished for warmer, sunnier weather.....but YOU can't control THAT!
