About the owner: Nature, music & arts lover inspired by the endless joy & balance they bring. Casa de Luz is my Taos home offered for your own private retreat in this magical place known as 'The Land of Enchantment.'

Why the Owner Chose Taos:
Taos & its surrounding area known as 'the Enchanted Circle' offer so many gifts -- arts, entertainment, Southwestern cuisine, multi-cultural events, historic sites, Pueblo dances, a casino & of course, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, fishing, whitewater rafting, kayaking & much more.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A beautiful location with a beautiful home and unobstructed views of Wheeler Peak & Taos Pueblo's sacred Taos Mountain. The Town of Taos has traffic noise & limited mountain views & star-gazing. Casa de Luz is only a short drive to Taos Plaza yet offers quietude, mountain views with incredible sunrises, sunsets & night sky stargazing from your own private hot tub with nearby dining, entertainment & outdoor activities, including Taos Ski Valley, hiking & trout fishing. Casa de Luz a private retreat from the hustle/bustle of urban life or for anyone looking for personal space.
