Note: The 15% off is for December, January and February and it is 15% off the nightly fee (not the cleaning fee and tax.) Save money on this cozy adobe casita with a private backyard 3 blocks from historic Taos Plaza. It’s the perfect place for romance and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Minimum stay is TWO NIGHTS (except holidays). The KING bed is very comfy. Two nights to two or three weeks, but we do not offer monthly rentals since our cleaning crew needs steady work - and they're the best.
If you're drawn to Taos, you're probably a skier (it's excellent at nearby Taos Mountain) or you’re spiritual (our upstairs loft even has a meditation bench) or you’re into health and fitness (yoga mat and weights supplied.)
Wood floors and ceilings in both rooms add a special charm and the hand-plastered walls in the bedroom are tinted a salmon color that makes your skin look fantastic. The bedroom has a comfortable king-sized bed and, of course, a reading lamp on each side. There's a full-length mirror plus an iron and ironing board.
The tall cottonwood trees in the backyard keep the casita cool, but if there’s a heat spell, just turn on the a/c. The backyard has a small wrought-iron table with 2 chairs and is completely fenced in, but sorry, the enclosed hot tub in front of where you park is for guests of Casa Montoya (VRBO #67696), the larger property in front that sleeps 2 to 4 people and features a large, fully-equipped kitchen, wood fireplace, king bed and HiDef TV and Netflix.
This casita has a kitchenette in the living room with 2-burner gas cook top, under-counter refrigerator, deep stainless steel sink with filtered water pitcher, toaster-oven, electric kettle, microwave and coffee maker. If you don’t feel like cooking, there are excellent restaurants within walking distance.
Bring your laptop (we have wireless internet) and your cell phone (we don’t have a telephone). If your favorite TV show is on while you'll be gone, just record it. We have Dish Hi Definition TV with DVR. And Netflix! A gas stove in the living room has a thermostat so you can be as toasty as you want. The bedroom has A.C., baseboard electric heat and there's a separate electric heater in the bathroom. The bathroom is small (no tub) with Mexican tiles and hand-painted sink, and a Saltillo tile floor - plus a portable heater and hair dryer.
Casita Montoya is less expensive than our other two vacation rentals in Taos, but it’s quite charming and comfortable. It's small but larger than a motel room and has a large backyard. In the summer it’s always cool, (we have A.C.) and toasty warm in winter! It’s a hefty walk to the historic Plaza with lots of charming stores and galleries along the way on Kit Carson Road. The fenced-in backyard has tall cottonwoods which keep it shady for your dog.
This is a non-smoking rental. One well-behaved dog (well… maybe two) can roam the fenced-in backyard.. Private parking in the driveway.
Please note that I just lowered the nightly rate so I could increase my bookings.
Considered 'sacred' by many of the residents, Taos Mountain is a world-class ski resort. Taos has a rich history and cultural heritage, with numerous galleries, museums and festivals you can walk to from Casita Montoya. You'll love this place!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About the owner: My wonderful, beautiful daughter Winton has been managing Casa Montoya and Casita Montoya for me for quite a few years now - but it's time for her to move on so at this time I'm managing them myself. Since 2007 I've been writing and giving inspirational talks (about growing younger!) and I'm currently writing my second book. Can I brag a little? My audio book, 'Think and Grow Young - Powerful Steps to Create a Life of Joy' won the 2011 gold Nautilus Award and I am blessed with four children, two stepchildren, two foster daughters, 13 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. And for you, I'll do my best to make sure the rentals are well stocked and super clean.
Why the Owner Chose Taos, NM, USA:
There's no place more magical or inspiring than Taos! And although small, this is a joyful house.
