About the Property
House, 1 Bedroom (Queen) + 2 Convertible beds, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
Stroll the apple orchard, sip a margarita, a hot cocoa or some iced tea while watching the spectacular New Mexico sunsets on the front porch, or just relax after a day of skiing or hiking. Even at this time of year you can don a fleece jacket and take your coffee or tea to the back portal where you can watch the early morning light play across the mountains as the bunnies enjoy their breakfast. This home combines high quality amenities (such as a very comfortable queen mattress with organic cotton linens and memory foam topper) with family affordability. Whether exploring the town of Taos, the nearby beautiful mountain ranges, or some of the best skiing in the world, Casita Des Montes offers you a cozy, affordable, and accessible home away from home.
Rent the Casita and the 'Green' straw bale house right next door for family gatherings or for celebrations with friends and we will give you a special rate. See # 194842 for details about this property.
The caretaker is the owner's aunt Linda and will help in any way she can, or offer advice or information on all things in the area, from where to eat or shop, to the best hiking trails.
If you visit once, you'll want to come back again and again.

About the owner: Welcome to Northern New Mexico! I am a licensed massage therapist specializing in Maya abdominal massage. I have two boys who love the activities available in Northern New Mexico.
Why the Owner Chose Arroyo Seco, NM, USA:
The Casita is on family property, passed down to me by my father who planted the orchard you will see as you enter the property.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our favorite things to do when we come to stay is to river raft, hike, and visit a most wonderful toy store in Taos called Twirl. Just relaxing and watching the marvelous sunsets is reason enough to visit as often as we can. I have made so many wonderful friends since my family discovered the Taos area in the early '70's and continue to visit and catch up with them each time we come back. And then there is that magical light on the mountains that is a source of constant wonderment and joy! I invite you to visit us at Casita des Montes and see what we mean!
