Pet friendly comment from Miles of "Pet Friendly Santa Fe"
"Mariposa has one of the biggest and most beautiful back yards! It’s not fully enclosed so your owner will need to be outside with you, but between the gazebo and umbrella covered patio there are lots of places to share together."
This historic adobe home, built in 1890, is situated on what many might call Santa Fe's most charming street. Casa Mariposa/Zia boast the best East-side location just one and a half blocks to Canyon Road and a 16 minute walk to the Plaza (.8 miles). You can park your car and walk everywhere. Mingle with local artist at the nearby coffee shop The Down Town Subscription or browse what has been voted Santa Fe's best bookstore. Both of these great hang outs are one half a block from your home. Your home is secluded and quiet on a dead end street, located in a peaceful residential neighborhood, yet so close to all the attractions of Santa Fe.
Perfect for a family reunions, girlfriend getaways or just about any group this four bedroom three bath home can sleep up to 10 people. Your home is furnished primarily with hand carved wood furniture made in Taos New Mexico complimenting the traditional style of the home. The first master has a stunning hand carved Spanish head board, king size bed and its own flat screen TV. The second bedroom has a hand carved traditional New Mexican bed frame, queen size bed and flat screen. This room also features a romantic traditional Kiva fireplace, wood floors and coved ceilings with vigas. The third bedroom is another master suite with a queen size bed. This bedroom has its own kitchenette, a gas-burning fireplace, sky light and flat screen TV . The full bath in this bedroom is loaded with traditional Mexican tiles and has hand painted doors. The fourth bedroom has bunk beds made in Taos. The bottom bunk is a full size bed and the top bunk is a twin. The bedroom looks out into your large back yard. This is a small yet charming room with a large closet and shelves. Please look at the photographs to better understand the size of the room. The fourth bathroom is off of the kitchen for all to use and has a shower only. (All told there are 6 beds including the queen size sleeper in the living room).
After a hard day of sightseeing you can all lounge in the living room /dining room. This room has a queen size sleeper sofa, leather chairs wood floors and a hand carved dining room table and chairs that sit eight. There is another flat screen TV in this room as well. The windows in the living room look out to blooming fruit trees. Off the living room is a desk and chair as a private space to catch up on emails.

Year Purchased: 1999
About: 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.
