Property description

Casita du Marroc is a charming and intimate space situated on Taos Mesa, fourteen miles to the ski lifts and 7 minutes drive to the culture rich, and ethnically diverse, town of Taos.
Our views are magnificent with the mountains stretching out before the property - literally right outside your door. There’s a private patio to the side of the casita, and a bistro table for your morning coffee, so you can enjoy the views from sunrise to sunset.

The casita has Moroccan decor, with a huge shower and loads of panache - it has a kitchen with gas hob and toaster oven, a dining and sitting area, and the pillow top bed has an allergy free “feather bed” and a European duvet for use when the temperatures cool. You’ll be cosseted and cozy, no matter what the season -- there’s a Jotul gas stove to keep you snug in the winter while adding to the ambiance.

We use only eco friendly products for cleaning and laundry, we provide organic soaps, and our sheets are made of organic breathe easy and sleep sound.

As for entertainment, there’s so much to do here. Great music venues, plus five museums, over eighty art galleries, great restaurants, historic homes, and Taos Pueblo with it’s magnificent traditional dances. Ojo Caliente Hot Springs are just 30 minutes away, perfect for a long soak after a day hiking or on the slopes.

Casita du Marroc is the perfect hide-out for anyone looking for a unique, romantic & tranquil place to stay in this fabulous town of ours, and there’ll be a bottle of wine waiting for you to enjoy on your first relaxing evening........we want you to start unwinding as soon as you arrive.

Please note that we do not charge a cleaning fee if the casita is left in a reasonably clean state.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Mom, artist, former art teacher, special needs activist, love movies, laughing keeps me sane, oh yeah, I am a food nerd stuck in a house with picky eaters! Taos is wonderful, we consider ourselves privileged to be living in this beautiful, liberal, culturally diverse town. We are recent transplants from the East coast and love exploring the area and immersing ourselves in the the culture of the Taos Mesa region.

Why the Owner Chose Taos:
Who could not fall in love with Taos and the surrounding gorgeous areas & the friendly, kind, practical people. Plus, Taos has so many creative artistic people and with such a diversity of cultures - it's the most stimulating area we've ever lived in the US.......add to that the gorgeous views outside our window......and we're as close to paradise as we'll ever get.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Our casita is peaceful, romantic and cozy and the Moroccan decor makes it very unique. Our views are unparalleled in the area. We are close to the ski lifts (14 miles), and close to town (4 miles). We have peace and tranquility, and mountain views literally in our front yard. Close to numerous restaurants and music venues, hot springs and we have free secure parking for your motorcycle or bicycle.
