Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)

Last minute and even same day bookings welcome!

This property is a recently inherited home on a large lot with this separate cottage/casita. There is one main bedroom with a nice queen size bed and then a small side room with a brand new twin bed, table and lamp but no closet. This room has a door to the patio. The main home is also available, vrbo listing number 277879, seperately or in combination with the casita for a discounted rate. Two blocks from the Taos Plaza, great access to all local activities including Taos Ski Valley by car or by bus. This is brand new to us so we are offering it 'as is' with few bells and whistles, but at very economical terms. The casita is newly remodeled, clean and cozy - - but really no frills such as sauna, hot tub, or even a well appointed kitchen yet, except the basic coffee pot, stove, refrigerator, and a few pots and pans. The grounds are clear but not upgraded yet, meaning some pathways are pitted concrete etc., but for location and price you'll be suprised how nice it is.

For speedier inquiries and reservations first check availability calendar, then call 510-393-8879

About The Owner

My name is David, and I live in Berkeley, CA. This property was recently inherited and I am managing it as a vacation rental on behalf of myself and my two brothers Erich and Ben. Being a very special place we decided to retain the property and try VRBO rather than rent it to long term tenants. I am co-owner of a popular restaurant in Berkeley named Venus and visit Taos regularly.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2009

Why The Owner chose New Mexico

This home was inherited and rather than sell them we decided to try VRBO. It's been really neat getting to know so many interesting people who get to enjoy the comfort and accessability of this rental and leave so happy with the experience and the rates!

What makes this cottage unique

Taos is just pure charm. Galleries, museums, concerts, nightlife, many scenic and outdoor recreational opportunities. Great progressive people and culture. Besides comfort and beauty the main benifit of this Casita is Location, Location, Location! The ease at which one can stroll out the door to the local shops, taverns and restaurants as well as the farmers Market around the corner is very convenient. By being just slightly north of the plaza (in the more upscale part of town), there is quick and easy access to the pueblo, rio grande gorge and ski valley as well as the best grocery in town.

Great

  • 5 of 5

Quaint little Casita close to great restaurants and the Plaza . You could utilize the office street parking and walk almost anywhere you want to to go. Great shower and plenty of hot water. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch. Yavanne, the property manager, met us and was such a delight to talk to.

What a great last minute find!

  • 5 of 5

We decided 10 days before Labor Day to take a road trip to Taos, New Mexico. I really had low expectations about finding a place to stay. Of course I found a couple of hotel/motels. The cost was high but I booked a motel anyway. But I decided to keep looking and I'm glad I did. When I called the owner I still didn't have too much hope, but the casita was available. Not only was I pleased they were open, but the casita was amazing! It really is spacious but oh so cozy. It was clean and very "New Mexican". The kiva is not working but added to the ambiance. The colors and the decorations are great. I loved the kitchen. It wasn't large but very efficient.

The location is excellent! It is so close to everything. The plaza is only two blocks away and to get onto paseo del sur is extremely easy.

We were so happy with our choice. Yavanne, the care taker was also very helpful. Muy simpática! I'm so glad we were able to meet her and get to see her artwork. I know we will make sure we check to see if this property is available the next time we visit Taos. Make sure you check this place out before you book another!

Owner's Response: We get a lot of reviews and I usually don't have time to respond to all of them but I have to say you were very generous in your effort and enthusiasm in writing so nicely of the Casita. We are so happy to have hosted you! Thank you! Dave K.

We had a great stay in the casita! Super comfortable with every amenity one might need. It's also a very short walk to the plaza. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful place!
