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.

Great location in Taos. Many shops and restaurants within walking /driving distance. The house was very neat, clean and cozy. Everything we needed was available and made our stay a pleasant experience. We definitely will return to Taos and stay here. Don was very accomodating and supportive during our stay in the Puerta Colorado condo. I would highly recommend this condo to everyone wanting a great location and comfortable stay in Taos NM.

My friend and I SO enjoyed our stay at Puerta Colorada. The condo is spacious, clean, beautifully decorated and very well equipped with whatever one might need for a short or extended stay. It is well located a mile or so south of the plaza...not quite walking distance, but convenient for most activities. Our hosts had given us great directions and suggestions for restaurants and outings. Our favorite restaurants were Gutiz and Bella. Also, the Taos Cow in Arroyo Seco. We toured the Earthship community one day....fascinating.

Don called the night we checked in to make sure that we were in and comfortable. I appreciated his courtesy. We happened to hit phenomenal fall weather which made our experience memorable. It was a special few days. Thank you, Mary and Don.

From the convenient location to original art by the owner, this condo was one of the best. We really appreciated the advance information with suggestions as to where to eat, what to see, etc. and a phone call after our arrival insuring all was well. Beautifully furnished throughout, great kitchen.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is truly a home away from home. The decor is lovely southwestern style and the kitchen is equipped with everything you need, whether you plan to cook your meals or not. The bedrooms are comfortable and the mattresses are great. The house was spotless when we arrived. Location is convenient to plaza and other activities, and is very quiet. Don and the house managers are friendly and very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to go back. I would recommend this house to friends and family, for sure.
