About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Stay at our beautiful Pueblo style condominium just a short walk to the Taos Plaza and other shopping. Enjoy this home's beautiful, soaring, tongue and groove ceiling with huge vigas as well as two charming bedrooms containing unique, original art. The residence has original paintings created by the owners, imported forged iron furniture from old Mexico, and Mexican handcrafted indigenous art objects. In addition, your feet will never get cold because of the radiant floor heating system which runs under the saltillo tile and carpeting.

You will be comfortable from the time you awaken until you go to bed. You can have a cup of coffee or tea on us. We have stocked the pantry with oil, salt, pepper and spices. Eat out or in, since restaurants and grocery stores are a short walk or ride away. Also, enjoy eating outside during the summer using our private barbecue grill. Because of our central location you are never too far from what Taos has to offer. Also, the Taos shuttle stop is just a couple of blocks away.

Why Don Vigil chose New Mexico

We love Taos! The art, the scenery, the hikes, the fishing, the skiing.....the list goes on and on! The people are genuine and friendly, and of course, we have family here. Taos is historic and funky. We wanted a piece of Taos. As you explore Taos and the area, we think you will agree!

What makes this condo unique

You will enjoy the full kitchen if you decide to cook, or just kick back and relax. Whatever your desire our place is fully equipped for your use and enjoyment.

We didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at the comfortable and well appointed condo, we felt at home. The condo is beautiful (loved the artwork!), furnished with quality furnishings and most importantly, I t was CLEAN!!! We we able to settle in and enjoy our stay immediately. The owners thought of every detail from soap to salt. Only negative is the lack of screens on the doors. The doors must remain opened to ventilate and cool off the place, but it also invited every insect in -- especially mosquitos, to which my daughter is allergic. However, this might be part of the owner's plan, otherwise we may have never checked out. :) We look forward to staying at Puerta Colorada again...and again...and again.

Excellent accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at the Puerta Colorada. This home is supplied with everything one would want and beautifully decorated. The beds and furniture are so comfortable. We like the location being close, but not too close to the main part of town. The home is a great place to relax and to access the many nearby activities. The owners are very easy to work with.

Great stay at a great place!

  • 5 of 5

The vaulted ceilings, comfortable furnishings and well appointed kitchen of the condo made our visit to Taos a wonderful experience!

The location was of the unit was great. It was a short walk downtown if the tourist traffic got heavy on the weekend.

The information provided by Don about the condo amenities along with their recommendations for local restaurants and entertainment was very helpful.

I will definitely seek this unit out for my next visit to Taos. Highly recommended!

Thanks Don & Mary!
