Taos house description

Limited time offer: book by May 16th for 10% off nightly rates.
Great Rates for a luxury, fully-equipped home that works well for couples, families, and small adult groups. Do read the reviews from our previous guests, who have consistently given us 5-Stars for all aspects of their stay.

We are about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Taos and the historic Plaza, with its wonderful restaurants, innovative galleries, and antique shops.

Family re-union? Wedding? We can partner with our neighbours to accommodate larger groups on the same site.

This truly is a home-away-from-home, which has been carefully and tastefully furnished and equipped as our second home - we keep everything in excellent order. The style is traditional adobe beautifully integrated with Morrocan decor, which gives the interior a rich ambience. The feel is cosy and comfortable, with warm inviting colours, and furniture you can relax in. The 2-storey unit is self-contained - the end-unit of three adobe-style homes in a small private community.

If you love to cook, the kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, including a microwave, food processor & blender, coffee maker & grinder, electric kettle, toaster, as well as a complete set of baking dishes, utensils and chef tools. Basic groceries are kept newly stocked up, and quick meals are ready for your arrival.

The upstairs master suite and lounge is unusually spacious, with a King bed, full bathroom, 2nd satellite TV, DVD player, and a well-equipped office space with wireless DSL, printer, and office supplies.
The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed, and is right next to the second full bathroom. No stairs to climb!
Perfect for 2 couples to have their own space.

The upstairs walled deck looks over the community gardens and has a gas BBQ grill, dining table, chairs, and umbrella for the summer.
Guests have the use of the beautiful and serene gardens while staying with us.

There is a queen size sofa bed in the living room.
The property is approx. 1400 sq ft.

Taos Ski Valley is an easy 30 minute drive, Sipapu 40 minutes, and Angel Fire about an hour away. Santa Fe is a little over an hour's drive.

During the summer, the Rio Grande offers rafting and kayaking for all levels, and walkers can enjoy anything from a stroll around the pretty local neighborhoods, to day-long mountain hiking.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: We love Taos, and have finally managed to semi-retire here after many years in Silicon Valley. We originally come from the south of England, and particularly enjoy the gardens in and around Taos, which remind us of home. There is so much to do here, that we still have a list of 'must-sees' that's several pages long! We love to entertain, so we make sure that our guests have everything they need (plus a few little luxury extras!).

                      Why the Owner Chose Taos:
                      This has been our second home since we bought it; we love staying here! The gardens around the condo are quiet and peaceful. It's the perfect location for us: we can stroll into town to look around the galleries, and walk home after a wonderful dinner at one of the local restaurants. It's a great base for exploring northern New Mexico, with so many historical and cultural sites an easy drive away. Santa Fe is just an hour's drive, so you can take advantage of Taos lodging rates while exploring Santa Fe.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our condo is located in one of the most sought-after associations in Taos, and on one of the prettiest streets. The quiet gardens with the koi pond are perfect for sitting peacefully with a book, and maybe a glass of wine. Inside the unit, there are two separate sitting areas, great for families or groups who would like a little private space to themselves. The upstairs office space is a quiet place to check in to work (if you must!) The private deck is our favourite place to have breakfast and watch the birds in the garden.
