"What a fabulous stay we had at this lovely home. We truly didn't want to leave. The house itself is just beautiful - comfortable, beautifully furnished (we loved looking around at all the lovely touches), with everything you need to enjoy your stay. It was also lovely and clean. The bed is so so comfortable, the bathroom lovely and airy (and what a view from the gorgeous shower), the sofa is wonderful for watching the kindly provided movies in the evenings, and there are comfortable chairs outside for enjoying the scenery. And what scenery! The photos truly do not do the setting justice. It is so beautiful and peaceful there. The views stretch for miles - we watched the most amazing sunsets every evening, saw the night sky light up with lightening from miles and miles away, gazed in awe at the milky way after dark, watched hot air balloons float up in the mornings and loved watching the local birds and bunnies visit every day. The garden is also really beautifully planted with the prettiest flowers and shrubs, it was like a little slice of heaven. The peace and silence is wonderful, only interrupted by the incredible chorus from coyotes on several occasions after sunset. We have never heard them like this before, it was an amazing sound.
The house is ideally situated - in the beauty, peace and quiet of the mesa, yet only a very short drive from the centre of Taos, which is a wonderful place, we really loved it. Be sure to visit the Plaza and John Dunn shops for a lovely selection of shops and cafes, with wonderful musicians providing free music whilst you sip your beverage in the sunshine. We had such a relaxing few days, and can't wait to return for a much longer stay to be able to visit more of the area and do some hiking in the fabulous scenery.
Regarding the road in mentioned by other reviewers, the house is only a very short drive off the main road, and the unpaved road is fine for ordinary cars, you certainly don't need a 4wd. We had a convertible and it drove easily on the unpaved road section, taking less than 5 minutes even at a slow careful pace. It was not a problem to go in and out of the house several times a day to nip into Taos for supplies/shopping when needed.
Kerry and Chris were both wonderful to deal with, answering all questions promptly and kindly accommodating our extra night addition at the last minute. Thank you so much again for sharing your beautiful home with us, we really can't wait to return soon!!"
