Casa Blanca is the best rental we ever experienced. Every detail was thought of by the owner. If visiting Taos, this is a must stay!!! Loved it.

Stunning high desert home!!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot express how pleased we were with this beautiful, very well equipped home away from home! The owners literally thought of everything that would be needed when traveling with family and friends. There are plenty of towels and paper goods and the kitchen has absolutely everything you could think of! One of my favorite things, though, was the cool collection of movies filmed in New Mexico...such a unique extra treat!!! Again, I would without reservation recommend this fabulous home! We truly hope to visit again next winter...maybe even sooner 😊?

A Spacious Oasis on the High Desert

  • 5 of 5

This large adobe style home is indeed one of the nicer places we’ve stayed in Taos. The large picture windows offer a panoramic view of the Sangre de Cristos Mountains and the multiple patio areas offer amazing views of the starlit skies. The home is very clean and well stocked and with all the comforts of home. This place is beautiful and very peaceful. You will not be disappointed.

First Class All The Way!

  • 5 of 5

Great place, all the little details (toliet paper, laundry and dish soap, info on dining and activities in the area) were taken care of. Place is decorated very nicely and house is located out of town in a quiet nice area, with easy access to Taos proper. Beds are nice. Easily one of the best places my wife and I have stayed in many years! You'll love it!

Location and view

We enjoyed our week in Taos, the great location and the couches were comfy, and the views out all the windows was great. Charlie was very helpful too.

Wonderful home in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all! Lovely furnishings, spacious lay-out, well-equipped kitchen, nicely landscaped garden and patio spaces for outdoor living, and a stunning view of the mountains. Close enough to town, and yet located on the way to skiing and hiking. I can't think of a thing I'd change!

Our week-long family reunion with grown children and toddler was a marvelous experience, and Charlie was great to work with.

You'll love this place!
