Year Purchased: 2014
About: We live in Oklahoma, and discovered Taos many years ago. This is our perfect 'pied-a-terre' when we visit - which we do regularly. We're seasoned travellers and know what it takes to make you feel at home in our home!
Why Taos: Taos is a magical place, it has a very special energy all of its own, which we feel every time we come. There is so much to do here, and the people are welcoming and friendly.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: We love that the condo is such an easy walk to town - especially after enjoying a meal at one of the wonderful local restaurants. An added bonus for us and our guests: The lovely El Monte Sagrada spa and resort is just around the corner, offering spa treatments, a welcoming bar, and top class restaurant - all reasonably priced!
