About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6) Outdoor amenities
Unique, Beautiful, Artistic, Historic Completely restored adobe.
Casa Betita is a completely restored historic adobe dating back to the mid 1800’s. Casa Betita was home to generations of the same family until 2007. Since then, the house has been completely restored offering the finest elements of the 21st century with the charm, colors, textures and décor of true New Mexico including hand plastered walls, Kiva fireplaces, vintage rugs and the artwork of local artists.
You can hear the waters of the Rio Pueblo and listen to Coyote’s gathering in the evening. The neighborhood horses and one donkey can be heard calling to each other and occasionally one might hear the bells from the church down the lane.This is not your ordinary impersonal vacation rental. This is a well loved home with many unusual and special details.

Casa Betita is one mile North of the Martinez Hacienda and about 2.5 miles south of the Millicent Rogers Museum. The house is about 1.5 miles west of the Plaza.
Year Purchased: 2007
About: I am an artist / writer / filmmaker / producer. I work and live primarily in California but love my home in New Mexico where my parents and grandparents from both sides were born and raised. When I am in Taos I spend time improving the garden, season by season, skiing and horseback riding, I also get some of my most important creative work done in the house which seems especially conducive to creative thought and activity. I am usually found with my co-pilot Dot, a 16-year-old Jack Russell Terrier.
Why Taos, NM, USA:
Taos is a special place of many stories. History is rich here, and the journey of each visitor under the vast canopy of sky adds another layer to the richness of the place. Experience Taos for yourself. You will be changed and fulfilled. Northern New Mexico also has two generations of family history for me, so when the opportunity came to care for this house and restore it, I jumped at the chance. I did not purchase this house as a vacation rental as much as this house chose me. I purchased it as a home. I was able to live in Taos for two years but economic conditions and work called me back to the big city, for now.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
A pleasant 15-20 minute walk past horses, alfalfa fields and through back lanes to Taos Historic Plaza, shops and galleries, this is a home you will want to return to year after year. Taos is a year round destination offering breathtaking views, intriguing history and intimate privacy making for the ultimate relaxing and healing getaway. Unlike many vacation rentals I supply everything except your food—the woodpile is continuously stocked, the propane for the grill, organic linens and soap, even robes. If you are a looking for a special Taos experience, Casa Betita is the place. My home is dog friendly for up to two small to medium dogs.
