Taos house description

Ah, autumn in Taos. This season offers warm days and cool nights. Aspens turning. Come to Luna Vista in Taos, a spacious adobe home. Enjoy the glorious views of Taos Mountain and the Sangre de Cristo Range from the front porch or the hot tub. Or, take in the views from Luna Vista's roomy interior. Sleeping features are a bedroom with a massive king sleigh bed and another with two queens. The sofa pulls out to a queen in the living room as well. The house is built with traditional viga ceilings and tile floors and sports furniture built for comfort, a complete kitchen with enough room for two cooks, original Southwestern art work and a cozy TV nook with recliners off the living room. The banquet-type dining table and openness make for great for entertaining yet the home encourages intimate getaways as well. While in Taos, visit the Taos Pueblo, or any number of shops, restaurants, music venues, museums and art galleries. Enjoy Taos Ski Valley or one of the many colorful towns nearby, then return to the serenity of your accommodations.

                              Additional information about rental rates

                              Fees:

                              • Pet Fee $50
                              • Cleaning fee $100 + tax
                              • Tax Rate 7.25%

                              Notes:

                              Pets are welcome. When you arrive, you will be asked to give my managers a check for $50 per pet as a refundable deposit. The check is then torn up after the maid checks the home. Usually no problem. There is no fenced yard. Pets must be walked and taken with you when you go out or kenneled. I have a kennel if you don't want to travel with one.

                              I send a contract stating the amount for deposit which is normally half the rent minus the tax. Renters may return the signed contract with a check or write in their credit card. If they are not comfortable with that, they are able to call me with the number. After I receive the contract and payment, I send an invoice showing the rest of the amount due upon arrival. Last minute is thru e-mail.

                              Pay with an approved method (credit card, check, or bank transfer) to protect your payment up to $1,000. Before making a payment always call the owner at the number listed on our website, and never use instant money transfer services such as Western Union and MoneyGram.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2003

                              About the owner: I have a career as a print journalist, and wrote a non-fiction book at a casita on the property. The book is called Finding Home: How Americans Prevail. A native of Kansas City, I lived in New Mexico for more than 20 years. I moved to the California Delta in 2013 after an extensive book tour, and am plotting another book. See findinghomestories.com I still make all the bookings and oversee operations from afar. A manager on site sees to visitors' needs. My mate and I are travelers, part gypsy. We have spent eight weeks in New Zealand junketing about in a camper van, then four weeks traveling around Australia. We have a BMW motorcycle which we took to Alaska a few summers ago, the north shore of Lake Superior and the Grand Canyon. Cooking, gardening, hiking, swimming and painting all top my list of fun things to do, along with appreciating my partner's photography.

                              Why the Owner Chose Taos:
                              The mountains and quality of light found in and around Taos have become part of my soul. I love the organic feel of an adobe house. Plus I am a sucker for a view. That's why I chose my particular viewing spot. The sunrises and sunsets always delight. Watching the moon rise from the portal is magic.
