"Two of us arrived on Sunday. We were in Taos to take an art workshop. It was quite warm, 94 degrees. The casita was quite warm inside, we sweltered, and thought we had made a big mistake! Most homes in Taos do not have air conditioning. We began seeing all kinds of shortcomings, really regretting our well thought out choice to stay here. We called the owner on Monday morning, realizing that we were not comfortable there and that something had to be done. Regretfully, we called the owner to discuss the various issues. She was appalled, listened to us and immediately took action! We were gone to our workshop all day Monday and she brought a crew and personally worked with them all day in the 90 plus degree weather to right all of the wrongs! She actually thanked US for letting her know about what we had encountered. Now for "the rest of the story." The Casita is charming, 250 years old. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, a laundry area in one of the bathrooms, kitchen, two living rooms and 6 fireplaces! ( some kivas and some on thermostats), two futons, suitable for children, or those who don't need to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. The yard could be lovely, there is another fireplace out in front and a deck out back off one of the bedrooms. We really enjoyed the home and all of the well thought out decorations and accent pieces. It was fascinating to try to figure out how it was built and added on to over the 250 year history. We truly were comfortable there and felt sorry to leave. The beds were quite comfortable, the neighborhood was very peaceful, private and quiet. One reviewer stated that she felt steeped in Taos history staying here. We would agree, it was a lovely stay in a charming, typical historic adobe casita. We would stay here again! Thanks to the owner for being so immediately responsive to our needs."

"This was our second visit to the remote casita. We came in for our tenth anniversary, and returned this year for our 13th. This year was amazing, because NM had a record breaking year for rain. Everything was lush and green, and the Gallina river was running high. We found a bottle of wine and a bottle of champagne waiting for us int he frig, and Elizabeth gave us garden produce and farm fresh eggs to supplement our steaks. We hiked, napped on the porch beds, saw a glorious sunset, painted and drew, found some petroglyphs on the canyon walls not far from the casita. The seclusion and the bird song, the soft breeze and the smell of fresh sage were restorative and romantic. Our two border collies were in heaven, too.
Thanks so much, Elizabeth, Andrew and Dave, for offering this spot on the planet for people to experience."

"The house was just as described. The view as magnificent. The bird viewing in the areas was more than I could have hoped. The house was great for our couple retreat. We hiked many different vistas in the area, just foot steps from the house. The owner Pat was very pleasant. She provides a lot of information for activities in the local area. This was great because it rained and we had to change our plans from the very demanding hikes planned to some easier treks. Please take your own hair dry as one is not provided, but all in all worth booking."
