                                Perfect for 2 couples, one of the nicest places We have stayed. Clean, comfortable and well decorated. Beautiful condo with beautiful views of the mountains to the east, and the sunsets to the west. I would recommend "Serenity" to anyone. We stayed 4 nights, and skied during the day and enjoyed the condo in the evenings. The large patio with gas bar-b-que grill was a great addition. The OBL Restaurant & Spirit shop is less than a mile away. We went there one night for drinks and another night for dinner. The food and atmosphere were great. The owner of the condo was in town during our stay, and she went above and beyond to make our trip great. Thanks Ellen, we are looking forward to returning. Ryan, TX

                                Stayed 3 nights over Labor Day Weekend. Property was better than described and was an easy process to rent. Condo was amazing and in a great location. The views from the back porch of mountains were wonderful. Ellen has thought of everything you need for a great stay, and of other things you didn't know you needed. We will be back! Thanks Ellen for making our trip great.

                                Owner response: Thank you Warren. I am so happy that my home added to your wonderful experience of Taos. I do want everyone who stays to feel pampered and taken care of. Do come back. All seasons are special in Taos. -Ellen

                                I was in Taos for a meditation retreat. At such times, I require a peaceful, quiet place in order to obtain the best benefit from the Work I am doing. I found that at Serenity. Early morning sun spills in the windows when it crests Taos Mountain. The shady, private outdoor patio has a lovely view of the mountains and of the sky. Many's the meal I took out there. There was rarely traffic past the unit except from the distant highway, so it was quiet. I didn't hear neighbors at all. The furnishings and decor are very good. I commented to a friend that my wife would like this space and its finishes, which says a lot (she's pretty discerning)! The kitchen had all manner of implements and supportive supplies, from herbs/spices to plastic wrap/bags. Far more than in any condo I have ever rented before. Had I wanted to, the place was stocked for fine dining, easily seating eight at the table. Ellen was a fine host. All through the process she was gracious, inviting, and supportive of my needs. I have rented numerous condos and hotel rooms for retreats in the Taos area. Without question, this was the best facility I have used. My searching is over. I'll be renting Serenity again.

                                The welcoming bottle of wine or cider with chocolates was a nice finishing touch to a lovely home. The condo is tastefully done, not just done with "stuff to fill a rental", making it feel like a home away from home. We were able to relax at the end of a great day of skiing and take in the beautiful mountain views. Everything that we needed was there. It was a great place. We hope to be back next year.

I love hospitality and entertaining and providing this for you gives me pleasure. You sure picked a great week to ski. The snow was the best this season. I skied over the knee powder! Come back and bring that great snow again.

                                So our group consisted of 5 students for a ski trip over MLK weekend. We got there Friday night and left Sunday. Upon arriving, we found the condo to have everything that we could think of, much better than any hotel room. From HDTV, wifi, a fully equipped kitchen and grill, towels etc, to even the smallest detail like house slippers, Ellen has thought of everything. The place is around a 15-20 min drive to Taos ski valley, and around 10-15 mins from the town of Taos, so it's in the ideal place to get anywhere you want. It was a comfortable fit for the 5 of us, I recommended Serenity to any of my friends heading up to Taos. Definitely would stay again!!!

                                Our family went out to drop one of our daughter's off at CU Boulder and we decided to take a week to tour the SW part of Colorado and go to Taos, a destination none of us had ever undertaken. Obviously a great choice, our time there was enhanced and made perfectly comfortable and welcomed by staying at SERENITY @ La Vida Feliz just north of Taos proper! The condo is beautifully laid out, comfy, so perfectly stocked and laid out that I thought I was dreaming of the Westin here in Chicago...right up to the dark chocolates bedside!! My adult daughters loved it, my wife loved it and I even got to watch 1 hour of TV, which is kind of silly in Taos, but hey, I am addicted. Ellen offered fine choices to eat, places to sight-see and overall was a magnificent hostess. I might add that her efficiency and attention to detail is unrivaled in my 55 years on this beautiful planet...which was made even better after staying at Serenity. Really!!

                                We were very pleased. All the amenities of a resort hotel, plus the convenience of a kitchen stocked with the necessities and more. We highly recommend it!

                                Owner response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience at "Serenity". I keep the kitchen stocked with all the spices, seasonings and oils, vinegars and flour, sugar...so one can truly feel that the are at a home and can prepare food the way they like to. If your travel plans should bring you back to the Taos area, please remember my home. -Ellen

                                My family and I have stayed in other VRBO rentals in Taos and I can certainly say this is the most luxurious. It far exceeded our expectations. For starters, Ellen is an excellent, friendly and gracious host, making sure everything is perfect before and during our stay. The condo was very spacious for my family of 5 - 2 adults and 3 kids. The amenities are first class. But the details really make this place feel special, from the designer shampoos, towels, fine silverware, espresso machines, etc, etc. It felt like we were the first ones to use. We look forward to returning to this gem in Taos. Thanks Ellen!

                                Great place! Comfortable, clean and stocked with everything one needs for a vacation. The location is a great compromise for skiers and folks looking to enjoy the other (very many!) features of Taos. Easy drive to Taos SKi Valley. Ellen (the owner) is very friendly and helpful. We would love to come back.
