About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Please make an initial enquiry about dates before making a reservation as I sometimes have family using the house..

Completely renovated with high end appliances, wood floors, large windows, steam shower and much more.

Situated on 5 private acres with amazing views over Taos and the mountains, the house is surrounded by endless acres of open horse fields yet close to the downtown plaza. This completely remodeled adobe house has wooden floors, skylights and log vegas throughout.

The kitchen, living and dining rooms are large and open plan. The spacious kitchen has granite counter tops, new appliances and a large island for cooking preparation or gathering around. An extendable dining table can seat up to 12 people. Or being so close to town take the night off cooking and be at great restaurants in minutes. The living area has a 52 inch flat screen TV and glass front fireplace.

A wrap around verandah with patio heater or upstairs deck provide great places to see unobstructed views of the incredible Taos sunsets and mountains. The large sunroom can also be used as a mud room.

The upstairs master bedroom and bathroom have been completely renovated. 8 foot windows provide fantastic views of the mountains from both the bedroom and bathroom. Sit in the 7 foot steam shower and gaze at the views. Newly tiled with a granite countertop. The bedroom is cozy with berber carpet and amazing views from the bed.

On the downstairs, one bedroom has a queen bed, satellite flat screen TV and private bathroom. Another bedroom has a king bed and adjoins the bathroom. The third bedroom has a queen bed. One couch in the living room folds out to a double bed.

The house is wonderful and the views are spectacular. A true hidden treasure

About Owner / Property Manager

I was born in Perth, Western Australia and moved to Taos when I learned and became hooked on skiing. Taos is a wonderful ski area in that it is challenging and the people are very friendly. After initially spending only winters in Taos, I soon realized that Taos is a wonderful place year round. I love to hike and mountain bike with friends and my dog Lilly.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this house in 2004

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Taos

I chose this property not only because the house had a nice floor plan, but because it sits on a large piece of land, close to town with amazing views as it sits up on a hill overlooking the town of Taos. It has a lot of trees, both natural and that I planted which thrive due to an acaquia that runs through the property providing lots of water in the spring and summer. It did take a lot of renovating, love and decorating to get the house and the gardens to the state they are in today.

What makes this house unique

My house will feel more like a home than a rental as I use it often for friends and family, so it has nice furnishings, bedding and will have most things you would need at your own home. As the house sits on a hill overlooking Taos to the west, the sunsets are amazing and it is great to enjoy them from the wrap around verandah. It is great to stay at such a private spot yet be just minutes from town. Come enjoy my piece of Taos paradise.

Sanctuary Weekend in Taos

  • 5 of 5

My partner, dog and I spent the weekend in this comfortable home for a birthday weekend and it felt like a home away from home! Comfortable and spacious with all the amenities needed (and more!). We enjoyed spending time on the wrap around porch eating breakfast and watching the sunset. It was quiet of city noise but full of nature sounds! We are already planning another visit with family friends in future! Thank you Gail for your hospitality!

Me encanto este bella casa en Taos.

  • 5 of 5

Impecable, bella, comoda y acojedora. Un total de 8 adultos y un niño y lo pasamos expectacularmente. Nos gusto mucho la espaciosa cocina. La dueña nos trato con mucha amabilidad. Seguro que regresaremos.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay at this property for six days in February/March. For a few nights we had ten people but never felt crowded at all. The house has gorgeous vistas, a great layout and is perfect for cooking and dining in. Its close to downtown Taos yet feels very secluded. The large windows both downstairs and in the master suite on the second floor give it an even more open feel. The owner, a beautiful Aussie, responds to messages quickly and solved our (minor) problems promptly.

Great house!!!

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed in Taos with our adult children and grandchildren! We skied Taos and thoroughly enjoyed our time at this property! Gail is an amazing communicator, and her house is very comfy, well equipped, and accommodates larger families without us feeling cramped. The kitchen is great for cooking and gathering. This is our second stay in her home. We will be back!!!

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered in Taos for Christmas week and we rented both the house and neighboring studio so there was plenty of room for everyone. The property is perfectly located less than 2 miles from the square so there were lots of options for shopping and dining. We took the owners recommendation and booked Christmas Eve dinner at Lambert's. It was incredible (thank-you Gail!). Be sure to check out the Adobe Bar for live music by many of the talented local musicians. The house sits on 5 acres of land with a stunning view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. We skied at Angel Fire, Taos Ski Valley, and Sipapu resorts which are all about a 30 minute drive away. The property is exceptionally clean and very well maintained. I highly recommend this property.
