Taos House Rental Photos and Description

Spacious Home, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6), free wifi & cable TV

Great Rates for a luxury, fully-equipped home that works well for couples, families, and small adult groups. Do read the reviews from our previous guests, who have consistently given us 5-Stars for all aspects of their stay.

We are about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Taos and the historic Plaza, with its wonderful restaurants, innovative galleries, and antique shops.

Taos Ski Valley is an easy 30 minute drive, Sipapu 40 minutes, and Angel Fire about an hour away. Santa Fe is a little over an hour's drive.

This truly is a home-away-from-home, which has been carefully and tastefully furnished and equipped as our second home - we keep everything in excellent order. The style is traditional adobe beautifully integrated with Moroccan decor, which gives the interior a rich ambience. The feel is cosy and comfortable, with warm inviting colours, and furniture you can relax in. The 2-storey unit is self-contained: the end-unit of three adobe-style homes in a small private community.

If you love to cook, the kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, including a microwave, food processor & blender, coffee maker & grinder, electric kettle, toaster, as well as a complete set of baking dishes, utensils and chef tools. Basic groceries are kept newly stocked up, and quick meals are available if you arrive late.

The upstairs master suite and lounge is unusually spacious, with a King bed, full bathroom, 2nd satellite TV, DVD player, and a well-equipped office space with wireless DSL, printer, and office supplies.

The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed, and is right next to the second full bathroom. No stairs to climb!

Perfect for 2 couples to have their own space.

The upstairs walled deck looks over the community gardens and has a gas BBQ grill, dining table, chairs, and umbrella for the summer.

Guests have the use of the beautiful and serene gardens while staying with us.

There is a queen size sofa bed in the living room.

The property is approx. 1400 sq ft.

During the summer, the Rio Grande offers rafting and kayaking for all levels, and walkers can enjoy anything from a stroll around the pretty local neighborhoods, to day-long mountain hiking.

We ALWAYS respond to you with in a few hours. If you haven't heard back from us within 8 hours, please contact us directly at CapricornRentals at Gmail dot com or call us on 575 587 1076

Note that our rates are based on up to four guests: there is a small charge for 5-6 guests and/or use of the sofa-bed. VRBO is unable to reflect this in their automatic quote system, so be sure to check the Notes section in the Rates, thanks!

NOTE: If you are planning on bring a pet, please let us know in your initial enquiry. We will not accept bookings with a pet after that point.

We also accept payment in UK pounds

About Lise and Nick

We love Taos, and have finally retired here after many years in Silicon Valley.

We originally come from the south of England, and particularly enjoy the colourful gardens in and around Taos, which remind us of home.

There is so much to do here, that we still have a list of 'must-sees' that's several pages long!

We love to entertain, so we make sure that our guests have everything they need (plus a few little luxury extras!).

We now enjoy creating art - from May through October be sure to visit us at our gallery in Penasco: Gaucho Blue Fine Art.

Lise and Nick purchased this house in 2003

Why Lise and Nick chose New Mexico

This has been our second home since we bought it; we love staying here! The gardens around the condo are quiet and peaceful. It's the perfect location for us: we can stroll into town to look around the galleries, and walk home after a wonderful dinner at one of the local restaurants. It's a great base for exploring northern New Mexico, with so many historical and cultural sites an easy drive away. Santa Fe is just an hour's drive, so you can take advantage of Taos lodging rates while exploring Santa Fe.

What makes this house unique

Our condo is located in one of the most sought-after communities in Taos, and on one of the prettiest streets. The quiet gardens with the koi pond are perfect for sitting peacefully with a book, and maybe a glass of wine.

Inside the unit, there are two separate sitting areas, great for families or groups who would like a little private space to themselves. The upstairs office space is a quiet place to check in to work (if you must!) The private deck is our favourite place to have breakfast and watch the birds in the garden.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the best condo we've ever rented (and we travel a lot). The kids loved the pond with fish in the front of the condo, and we enjoied the big bedroom and the nice terrace upstairs.

I really appreciated the fully equiped kitchen, and all the nice utensils, silverware and plates. The condo is extremely nice decorated, very functional, and everything is well organized.

The owners were very friendly, and made us fell like home.

We're lookng forward to going back.

Perfect 4 day home in Taos!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 days three years ago when we brought our Spanish visitor from Our home in Texas to New Mexico and it was perfect.. great location, beautiful home, plenty of room and privacy, and such nice welcoming arrangements by Lise and Nick ( fully stocked kitchen, welcome package of wine and snacks even). Just stayed again last week with two more friends from Spain, and again it was perfect! Can't recommend this highly enough.. it is such a perfect home away from home in beautiful Taos!

Welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we walked in the door to find Chips and Salsa waiting for us with a welcome note we were comfortable and felt at home. There was coffee, the house was clean and cheerful. We will go there again!

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment/condo is located about 6 blocks from the plaza in a quiet neighborhood. It was very clean and comfortable, the kitchen was nicely outfitted with cooking utensils, plenty of extra blankets, pillows, sheets,etc. It was helpful to have a washer/dryer. We were 2 couples and had our privacy with one bedroom/bathroom upstairs (the "master") and one of each downstairs, smaller and off the kitchen, but definitely sufficient. It was quiet at night, very peaceful. The only small piece of feedback from one of our guests was that the furniture in the living room did not seem up to the standard of the rest of the condo. Not a big deal, overall, it was really a nice place to stay. Lise checked in with us to make sure we had arrived and were settled in, she was responsive to one or two questions we had during our stay. Recommended.

we enjoyed the quiet setting. It is like an oasis with all the big cotton wood trees and the frog pond.

Fantastic property - the pictures really don't do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

This really was a great condo. It has the perfect location. We could easily walk downtown to the plaza and over to the resort, El Monte Sagrado, to the spa and bar. The condo had a great layout with one bedroom upstairs and one down. This made it easy to share with my in-laws. The condo was extremely clean and well appointed. Lise was very easy to work with and made sure we had every thing we needed. The grounds were beautiful and we loved sitting on the deck in the afternoon to enjoy the pond and beautiful trees. The condo is on a beautiful quiet street but close to all the action. The best of both worlds. We would certainly consider renting this condo again for our next visit.
