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!

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We, 3 couples, stayed here while skiing at Taos Mountain resort, which is about a 13 mile drive. This is a beautiful home with ample space, which allowed us to spread out and work, while others watched TV. The kitchen is very well equipped. One of the better ones we encountered with VRBO. A garage for 2 cars and extra storage. A mud room for the boots and laundry. It is in a very quiet neighborhood. Nice to watch the night sky. The owner was very accommodating and responsive to all requests. Would stay here again!

Best Vacation Home in Taos

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many houses in the Taos area over many years, and this is definitely the best! The house is lovely - very spacious and immaculately clean. It is clearly a home and not just a vacation rental. It is located in an upscale neighborhood in the perfect location between Taos Plaza and the ski area. The views are awesome. The owner is easy to communicate with and wants to make sure your stay is enjoyable. Great experience all around!

This IS the BEST vacation rental EVER!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to stay in the swankiest home near Taos, this is it! My two friends and I get together once a year for an epic vacation and this was the best place we have stayed so far! The views are fabulous from every window and the many outdoor sitting areas. It is very quiet and peaceful and only 10 minutes away from Taos. Very close to MANY beautiful hiking trails. The hot tub is the best we have experienced. You are NOT overwhelmed by chlorine fumes or left with a bleached bathing suit. If you are lucky, like I was twice during my stay, you can watch the lightening and hear the thunder nearby while staying warm in the tub. The hot tub is the best place for watching the sunset, too. And if you can stay up late enough (summer-time) there are a zillion stars in the sky, more than I have ever seen anywhere.

The thing I liked most about this house was that it always stayed a very nice temperature- around 69 to 70 degrees F. So you are not cold in the morning or too hot in the afternoon. If you get a little warm at night, you can open a bedroom window and have a nice cool breeze float through. Each bedroom has an oversized fluffy warm robe that I wore daily- so nice after relaxing in the hot tub.

Make sure you take a leisurely stroll through the 'neighborhood' in the evening. There are lots of bun buns (cotton-tailed bunnies) hopping around and they are soooooo cute! Plus, it is fun to look at all the other very nice homes in this upscale area.

We LOVED staying here and so will you!
