About Two Casitas
Celebrating 20 Years of Santa Fe Vacation Rentals.
Two Casitas is here to ensure your Santa Fe vacation rental experience is as enjoyable as it is memorable. Whether this is your first visit to Santa Fe or the latest of many, we pledge to treat you in a way that will make you fall in love with Santa Fe the way we have.
Two Casitas was founded by Wendy Kapp in 1999. We take pride in the special relationships we have with our guests: the majority of our bookings are either from repeat visitors or come to us by recommendation. Let us help you plan your trip and be your personal concierge before and during your stay - call us any time for restaurant recommendations, the best hiking or biking, events information or day trip ideas. We Know Santa Fe; we LOVE Santa Fe and all we want to do is pass that onto you.
Our Vacation Homes
Two Casitas started, literally, as two "casitas": small guest houses on Wendy's property. In the 20 years since then we've grown to become the exclusive provider of almost 60 privately owned vacation homes. Each is full of character and beautifully furnished in the distinctive New Mexico style. We have the perfect home for every group - call us and we'll find the right one for you. The great majority of our houses are within walking distance of town, while also having private spaces to get away from it all - you get the best of both worlds!Browse Our Properties
A recent review from a happy guest:
It is very rewarding to sit down, reflect and try to put into words all the good feelings and experiences we (myself and doggies) had because of our experiences with you, your staff and the charming places you allowed us to stay in during our awesome vacation in Santa Fe.
To begin our story, Google was a great place to begin a search for a special "dog friendly" place to stay on vacation in Santa Fe. TWO CASITAS website was user friendly, very helpful, charming and touched on the charm of each casita listed. Once I had their phone number and was able to personally talk to the warm, sensitive contact person(s) I was hooked!!! Each person listened to my story and what I might need to take care of me but also what my two best friends, "Thunder" and "Pumpkin", Norfolk Terrier and Norwich Terrier, would need for a great time. Our reservations were set in place and all we had to do was arrive. The directions to our casita were perfect and I had no trouble in driving up to the front door!!
As I fell in love with Santa Fe, I would call and see if it was possible to stay a little longer! Each time they worked to help the dream come true.
Casita Bonita was our first home away from home. It was my first time to stay in an adobe. The thick walls provided a veil of quiet peace. I could open both doors for the doggies to enter the darling quaint yard. We were Home!! Everything we needed to feel at home was there. We were close to popular spots like the Canyon Road Art Center and other points of interests. Our morning walks were right out our front door!! I loved going to the local grocery store just maybe 3 blocks away-max.
We ran out of time at Casita Bonita and we were accommodated to extend our visit to Manana. It was lovely and full of comforts to spoil us some more! Its location being about five blocks north of the main plaza presented a new area of Santa Fe to explore and love also.
Wendy and her staff made me feel welcomed before I left home. I felt like we all had known each other for a long time. It will be a joy to plan and look forward to going back to Santa Fe with Two Casitas finding us one of their charming places to stay in and truly experience Santa Fe and the friendly atmosphere that oozes from such wonderful people, once again.
Abundant success and heart felt gratitude, Jane
About the owner of Two Casitas
Wendy Kapp is the founder/operator and CEO of Two Casitas, Santa Fe Vacation Rentals LLC. Wendy was raised in Chicago. She came to New Mexico at the age of six on a family vacation and fell in love with Santa Fe. It took her only twelve years to find her way back and make Santa Fe her home since 1975. Wendy has been fortunate enough to be an entrepreneur and successful business owner in Santa Fe for twenty-five of these years. In both of her businesses Wendy started “on a shoe string” and developed her companies into healthy thriving businesses with up to fifteen employees. She become one of the most respected business woman in her field.
Wendy started Two Casitas in 1998 with just two small homes that were on her property to help offset her mortgage while still running her prior company. Two Casitas grew organically from there as homeowners began to approach Wendy to manage their properties. In less than a year Wendy was able to sell her previous business and dedicate herself full time to Two Casitas. Wendy got involved with hospitality to share her love of Santa Fe and New Mexico with all who come here. There has been no bigger joy except having raised her son here in Santa Fe. Wendy’s mother and two of her sisters chose to make Santa Fe their home as well. Wendy’s mother who first brought her to New Mexico showing her the love of the land and sky, Phyllis Kapp is the well-known landscape watercolor artist and has owned the Waxlander Gallery on Canyon Road for over twenty-five years. Two Casitas now represents over 50 homes and is having a blast growing.
Two Casitas' Staff
Wendy has surrounded herself with an incredibly competent staff that assists in achieving the goals and objectives of Two Casitas. Our staff are well qualified and experienced in the relevant fields of hospitality, tourism, customer service, accounting, marketing and promotion. Two Casitas would not be Two Casitas if it were not for the dedication, talent and good spirit of our Santa Fe team.
We're proud to say we've worked with the same cleaning staff for 12 of the 15 years we have been in business. Estella’s Cleaning Service has grown along side Two Casitas business. We go all year without a single complaint about cleaning issues. Estella and her staff take such pride in what they do it is a delight for our guests to walk into our homes. Thank you Estella for all that you do. Feel free to contact us should you want her services during your stay.
When you own or manage homes - especially old homes - things do go wrong. Two Casitas is so fortunate to know the best people in town to repair any thing that should go down. From dedicated on the spot plumbers to a handyman that can do just about anything.
The other people we could never do this business without is of course our Santa Fe homeowners. We treat each and every one as a business partner. They are every bit as important to us as our guests and are treated as such. Two Casitas is proud to say that many of homeowners have been with us since the very beginning! We are honored that our homeowners entrust us with the care and management of their homes. We are happy when they get a chance to come and visit Santa Fe themselves and let us know how happy they are with the condition of their second home.
Our commitment is to help our homeowners achieve the maximum revenue potential for their vacation rental property, combined with our dedication to delivering a first-rate guest experience allowing the property to realize its full investment potential. We achieve this in a whole gamut of ways. From having the very best web site to extensive marketing and advertising, nurturing our repeat clientele and not growing to fast are just some of the many reasons Two Casitas feels confident to say we are the very best property management company in town.
We are currently looking for select properties to add to our inventory of fine homes. If you have a home you are looking to rent out short or long term or you are thinking of purchasing and need some help, please contact us. We would love to help you determine if indeed we are a good fit.
