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 Taos

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.

This condo was even better than I had envisioned it to be.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with another couple that are good friends. We had a delightful time in Taos partly because this was such a nice place to stay. The owners had thought of everything that a traveler might need. It was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We highly recommend this based upon our good experience here. It was simply lovely to stay here.

Clean, comfortable and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving weekend at Puerta Colorada and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo is incredibly well equipped with everything you might need to cook or just relax and enjoy. The place is very tastefully decorated and the furniture, appliances an linens are all of high quality. The master bed was a bit soft for my taste, but not everyone likes their mattress as firm as I do. A lovely touch was the owner's beautiful paintings throughout the space. We had originally wanted to be closer to the plaza, but there is plenty of parking if you want to drive and it's an easy walk if the weather is nice!

Spacious and well-equipped unit in a good location. Don was very helpful in the booking process.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleasantly surprised by how spacious the unit was. The bed and furniture were very comfortable and we were able to feel right at home very quickly. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed for cooking. Don was very good to work with throughout the booking process and provided some great tips on sights and restaurants upon arrival. The location was quite good although the lack of a sidewalk on the main road did not make it feasible to walk back from the Plaza after dark. However there is ample free parking downtown so it was not really a problem.

Lovely, clean and convenient to everything in Taos.

  • 5 of 5

Bright and cheerful property. I felt very at home here. The supermarket and attractions are all nearby. My traveling companion required an urgent care visit which was conveniently located a 2 minute drive from the house. The pre arrival directions were great as was the list of suggested eateries, galleries and attractions.
