Why The Owner chose New Mexico

We visited Taos several years ago and fell in love with the light and beauty of the town. We were looking at vacation properties in the Colorado mountains but settled on Taos since the people, art and spirituality of the town were unique. We've never looked back after purchasing Kiva.

What makes this house unique

Kiva will immediately restore your sanity and refresh your creativity. Staying in an adobe with walls that are two-feet thick gives you a sense of serentiy and safety. The beauty of the Native American artifacts, baskets, pottery and textiles will surround you with grace. Walk to the plaza or head to the gorgeous mountains that surrond Taos.

Wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was very well thought out. A priority for us was that the kitchen was equipt to do some light cooking and it more than was. Not only did it have cook ware but also basis spices . So we cooked breakfast every day we were there

The living room and bedrooms and dining area everything was nicely done. Well decorated and made us feel like we were staying in a piece of Taos history

We didn't get to use the hot tub but it looked nice.

Beds were comfortable and the entire place was cozy

There was some slight noise at night but I suppose that goes without saying when living close to nature . One suggestion would be to get a bigger tv but otherwise everything else was spot on

Will stay again if in Taos

Great little place in Taos

  • 5 of 5

My son and I went to Taos for skiing vacation and stayed at Kiva in March 2016. Kiva was just what we needed. Well located to the Plaza and the rest of Taos, well appointed with Taos themed decor, and had all the amenities that we needed. After a long day of skiing it was great to hop in the hot tub for a while each afternoon. The bed was comfortable; the bathroom nice; the washer and dryer came in handy as well. I would definitely stay there again if I go back and only need one bedroom.

The Plaza was not far away. We drove each time since the crowds were down, but you could walk it fairly quickly if you needed to. The restaurants were good to. Bella's was great, and The Gorge was good as well.

The skiing was fantastic. Took about 30 minutes to get to Taos Ski Valley, but it was an easy drive and there were essentially no lift lines at all.

The Kiva was a great place to stay, home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, the description according to the location, layout and amenities was accurate and it was great to stay in the historical part of Taos. Kate and Josh responded to all of my questions and Stefanya, the caretaker went beyond her duties and made us feel like we were at home. I was able to walk to the plaza, the neighborhood was safe and my husband really enjoyed the hot tub. We will be returning to the Kiva or LaLoma and feel like we are going home. Thanks!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, great space indoors and out. The walk to town was short. We loved having the outdoor space for our dog and kid to play. The hot tub was a great addition. I would definitely recommend this place.

Great spot

  • 4 of 5

We have been traveling to Taos for 20+ years and this is one of the best rentals we have stayed in. Location is great with plenty of off-street parking. The back patio and front porch give you a lot more space than just the interior. Nice furnishings. We will keep this one on the list for future trips.

Walk to wonderful art galleries and museums and fabulous restaurants. Taos Pueblo is just a few miles away-visit Native Americans who continue to live there and create original crafts and perform wonderful ceremonies.
