Beautiful property, great location
This is the 2nd time we've stayed in this home for a weekend ski trip in Taos. The location in Arroyo Seco is close to town and the ski valley. The views are wonderful and there's plenty of space in the home and land. Well stocked with interesting books. No complaints about this house, which is why we've booked it two years in a row
Thank you. We were glad to have you as a guest for the second time and hope to see you again in the future.
Great spacious living!
The house was roomy enough for three families. Pantry and cupboards were well-stocked and ready for cooking. Kids loved the ping-pong, tipi and hot tub. Both owner and house manager had excellent communication and made sure our visit was flawless.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Split the home with 2 other families and it was perfect!
This home worked out just perfect for our large group. We had several children and they played for hours and hours and had a great time. We also had a ping pong tournament that was super fun! We did not use the hot tub but it was nice and warm and I think it would have been very relaxing. There is a great view of the mountains from the backyard. This property is about a 5-10 min drive to the center of town so you get away from the hustle and bustle of town but you are still really close. The booking and check in was a breeze and the maintenance man was so nice and helpful. He emailed me to make sure we arrived ok and let me know he was around if we needed him. So why did I just review 4 stars if it was so great? Well, it could have been cleaner. It was dusty with cob webs simply put it needs a really good deep cleaning throughout the home. It was not bad enough for me say I would never stay there again but if I have to pay a cleaning fee, I hoped that it would be really clean. Overall we looked past the dust and dirt and had an EXCELLENT time!
Pueblo indian reservation, historic homes, many art galleries, great restaurants
