Casa Platin was once part of a hundred year old hacienda. It is completely private, in an established, lovely neighborhood. It is old world Taos, with all modern amenities, including wi-fi, cable with all channels, music and movies. The totally enclosed private courtyard is shaded by giant ancient elms. Original beautiful pine floors, ceiling vigas and the kiva fireplace make Casa Platin a warm and relaxing refuge for your stay in Taos. Historic Taos Plaza is just two blocks away, and Kit Carson Park, where most of Taos happens, is just around the corner. Restaurants, galleries, shops and museums are a short stroll away. This gorgeous casita is pure Taos. The decor and colors are fun and exciting, and leave no doubt that you are experiencing the true Taos! The owner was raised in New Mexico, and her Taos background is evident at every turn in Casa Platin. This wonderful casita is the jewel of the historic district!
A fantastic library is waiting for you, with many first edition books, including the history of Taos and the region, or romance novels, children’s books or whatever your reading pleasure may be.
Parking is a dream, just outside your door. Many guests walk to the restaurants, galleries and shops, and Kit Carson Park, where most events are held.
The casita is furnished with comfy beds with memory foam toppers, and the bathrooms have all the amenities you can imagine. Towels and sheets are spotless and comfortable, and there are many extras so they are clean for the entire duration of your stay. If you should need to do laundry, the brand new washer and dryer are there for you, with laundry detergent, bleach, Oxy Clean, dryer sheets, etc. all provided.
Children are secure and safe in the totally enclosed and locked courtyard, and there are toys, books, games, coloring books and movies for their enjoyment. Many stuffed animals are waiting to help them feel comfortable in their new surroundings. I love the reviews from the little ones, in their own writing. How fun!
If you wish to cook in, you will find everything at your disposal to make your meals perfect. The kitchen is large, with full sized appliances, and anything you would need to to enjoy eating in. Propane is furnished for the large outdoor grill, and wood is provided for you to enjoy the fire pit in the courtyard, a favorite of our guests year round. The little lamps, and white lights on the patio are so romantic while you enjoy your Margarita, glass of wine, Martini, or beverage of choice!
Come and relax and enjoy the magic that is Taos, in the magic of Casa Platin!
