                                                            Betty G.

                                                            Considering the location signage would benefit the traveler and please don't arrive after dark the first time. There is virtually no outside area other than the small table area and the driveway. Inside only comfortable seating for one. This arrangement can best be described as feeling like a motel without the fringe benefits of a motel. My fault I should have spent $20 more and had a cabin with seating, a fireplsce, and a tv. Does have WiFi strong enough to stream netflix or playstation vue so take your laptop.

                                                            The area of Taos & Arroyo Seco are among my favorite places on earth so even with the less than optimal lodging arrangements we will be back soon, will just stay in a more secluded cabin or a more inclusive hotel.

                                                            By the way if you do stay here with 3 people don't sit in the blue chair with he straw bottom, the bottom is rotted and you will probably fall through. I covered with baggage so we didn't forget and sit on it.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            Sorry about the chair, It has been replaced. The casita sleeps 3, the third being a child on the blow up bed. The place is too small for 3 adults, and I would never let 3 adults stay. It seems as though most people have been happy with that scenario. I don't hide anything on VRBO. The casita is as described. Although the privacy area is mostly in the front, we move the chairs and table to the back in the winter. When the sun hits the South side of the house, you can sit out in your shorts and t-shirt in the sun, and an extremely cold day can feel like a summer day. The neighbors, all acres away, are lovely people, all organic farmers. The outside area is shared. We are on two acres of land with 3 houses. We encourage guests to eat out of the gardens and green house and kids play on the outside play set. I apologize if you had problems finding the casita. The road is signed, and directions are clear. I am always available by phone for the guest when they are coming into town to make sure they found the casita. I did feel as though we did not have good communication.

                                                            Perfect ski getaway!

                                                            Lisa G.Austin

                                                            Casita Seco was the perfect place to stay for our ski vacation. Great view, close to restaurants, and close to the ski valley!

                                                            What a great time!

                                                            Thanks so much for being flexible with our schedule, we had a wonderful trip and will definitely be back, what a perfect home base!
