There is no way to describe how much we loved our stay at the Mariposa House and Zia Casita! We were married in Santa Fe and rented out the entire house (our friends had the Paloma Casita) and it was exactly what we needed for our needs. It was gorgeous, comfortable, quiet, within walking distance to everything, and we could all be together and relax. And the back yard was perfect for our small reception after the wedding! It's beautiful back there and so peaceful. We also loved the hot tub and took full advantage the second night to relax and enjoy with our wonderful friends and family. The home is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need and there's room to spread out as well. We loved where we were located because we had other friends and family staying in the area and they could just walk to where we were and enjoy the surroundings. Wendy was so incredibly kind and went out of her way to make sure our stay was perfect and we cannot thank her enough.

I have stayed with Two Casitas, Wendy, before and have always loved her properties and enjoyed my stay. Maraposa house was exceptional. It is real adobe house, great space, plenty of beds, a great yard and even a hot tub. Sitting outside and enjoying our wine in the spacious yard was such a treat. The house is close to Canyon Road and the Plaza so I didn't have to drive much. I had parking right in front of the door. It was great. I will certainly return to this great home. Wendy and her staff were great as always.

Very convenient to downtown Santa Fe. A quaint and quiet place to stay while visiting. The bed and shower need quite a bit of work but otherwise it was clean and comfortable (except the bed). The hot tub was a nice place to relax after long walks downtown.
Thank you so much for staying with us Steve. We are so happy that you go a chance to use the hot tub. It is such an added bonus for our guests. Thank you about letting us about the bed. I have not laid down on it in quite some time. It is a bit old and I will check it out. Its guest like you who tell us your concerns that make the next guest have a better experience. So thanks again.We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us.Just so you know and our potential guest know. We did become aware of the shower head and it is now fixed. We are glad you enjoyed the location. Thank you. Two Casitas www.twocasitas.com 505-984-2270

My husband and I wanted a weekend away and found this cute and clean apartment to be low cost and in exactly the right location. The rental is in a great part of town and within walking distance of the plaza and Canyon Road. This area of Santa Fe is quaint because the roads to the rental are dirt, the streets are narrow and lined with high adobe walls and secret gardens. It made us feel like we were in Mexico! It was so nice to wake up every morning with the sunlight coming in through the windows to a hot cup of coffee then walk somewhere (or cook)breakfast. The rental comes with all the amenities we needed. And a bottle of wine was waiting for us when we got there! The king size bed was also really comfortable. We'll be back for sure.

Recently stayed at Paloma (part of Two Casitas). Nestled just two blocks from artistic Canyon Road and a few more blocks to the heart of the Santa Fe Plaza, it is an excellent alternative to a hotel room (no matter how elegant the hotel room). Sunny kitchen allows some meals to be taken in the casita for those times when you are just too comfortable to venture out. I have stayed in a number of places i the Santa Fe area over the years, but will be syaying here from now on.

The house offered everything we were looking for in regards to a cozy atmosphere and prime location for walking everywhere. Plus we were able to travel with our dogs, which is the only way we travel. The hot tub was out of commission upon arrival; however, this was corrected within days. We would recommend this property for a couple who enjoys walking while leaving the car.
Thanks so much for staying with us. Most of our propertties are aquired because of their location for visitors to be able to explore on foot. Sorry about the hot tub. Glad you were able to use it though..Glad you got to walk around in our magnificent spring weather.
Come back soon!
