About Melissa /Taos mgr. cell 415 497-7761

Native Texan but an adopted New Mexican. I pack my stuff and 3 dogs in the car and come to Taos every chance I get to enjoy the sky, mountains, skiing, cycling, hiking, rafting, fascinating people, exploring the art scene ( new and old), history, live music, great food and the laid-back atmosphere.

Melissa /Taos mgr. cell 415 497-7761 purchased this house in 2010

Why Melissa /Taos mgr. cell 415 497-7761 chose Taos

I grew up coming to New Mexico and have always loved it. Taos has everything to offer from outdoor activities and sports to the arts, live music, shopping and restaurants

What makes this house unique

Nearby Sunset Park and Valverde Commons have the best dog-walking paths in Taos. Take a cooler to Sunset Park and watch the sun set over the mountains. Walk 5 minutes to the Plaza for shopping, art galleries and restaurants.

Best of all possible worlds

  • 5 of 5

We've enjoyed vacation rentals all over the world, and this is possibly the best house we have ever stayed in. The location could not be more perfect - it's rural and peaceful, but only a 7 minute walk to the plaza. Sunset Park is perfect for dogs and humans and was well used by both. The house itself is beautifully appointed and furnished. The kitchen was fantastic and had literally everything you would need. We enjoyed exploring Taos and the surrounding area, coming home to enjoy a drink on the portal, then going to dinner at one of the many fantastic restaurants in the area. Thanks to Kim and Melissa for making our stay in Taos unforgettable!

Owner's Response: What a review! It does not get any better than having guests who are frequent Vrbo renters say that this home is the best ever. Unforgettable stay says it all! I'm so glad you found Kim the owner and me, the Taos manager helpful. We always want to make our guests happy with their stay and to answer any and all questions. As you said the location does encompass the Best of Both Worlds! Quiet neighborhood, great meadow and mountain views, delightful outdoor area and walk to the Plaza. Guests with or without dogs enjoy the convenient open space right down the hill at Sunset Park. The interior is comfortable with lots of interesting things to see and all amenities. I'm always so surprised when guests comment on amenities. We offer cozy robes and hair dryers. it's always nice to have a washer and dryer too for guest use. Yes the kitchen always gets mentioned. High end appliance and dishwasher and disposal a real plus. We try to keep the kitchen well supplied to so you do not have to buy basic kitchen items during your stay. Thanks again for your glowing review and please consider coming back for a return visit. Beautiful in the fall with the leaves turning color and so cozy in the winter.

Delightful stay.

A real treat to return to this beautiful home to relax after each day of adventure and exploration. Taos within walking distance and yet out of sight and sound at this wonderful location. Thank you for letting us rent your lovely home.

Owner's Response: Thanks and glad you enjoyed this home. Although I do wonder at four stars and not five? We are spoiled with so many five star reviews. Seems the words real treat, beautiful, wonderful and lovely deserved a five star. Think I'll send you a personal email for feedback. Melissa, mgr.

very comfortable, 'it's-al-there', convennietly located home

  • 4 of 5

In a quiet 'hood, easy access, abundantly well stocked home. Very comfortable king-size bed. The rest of the furniture is rather dated but functional. My pet peeve (in most vrbo's) is that the internet speed always is slow and, for example, doesn't allow you to easily upload your vacation pics. Overall a good value.

Owner's Response: Hi and thanks for review. This home has the highest speed of Internet available in Taos. However it is not as fast as some folks are used to. Other than that I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at this home. I wish you had said which furniture you thought was "Dated". I would have passed this information on to the owner. This is the first time we have received this comment.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed this home for your vacation. The owner has put time and thought into the decor and always looks for upgrades. The front patio is perfect for summer evenings with the outdoor fireplace, planter boxes and pasture/mountain view. Walk to the Plaza yet quiet neighborhood. The kitchen is indeed well stocked and guests are always pleased with disposal and dishwasher. A real vacation!!!

This is our second time staying here and we love it. The location is perfect with views of the mountains and open fields, yet so close to the Plaza. Very inviting and comfortable home.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled to have returning guests. You are so right, the house is very close to the Plaza, restaurants and shops but when you are sitting on the porch, you feel like you are far out in the country. Once you stay in this home, it is easy to understand why people keep coming back. Thanks so much for the thoughtful review.
