Our Casa de Suenos (House of Dreams) is an adobe style home situated on the high mesa at the North edge of Taos with spectacular views of the Taos mountains and sunsets. (Here is a recent collage of time lapse scenes from our house showing the area and its natural wonders: https://vimeo.com/170322810 ) With 1,650 square feet of living space it can comfortably accommodate up to 6 people and is eclectically and tastefully decorated. There is also an in-house studio art gallery with work for sale for our guests.The two bedroom suites, which are at separate ends of the house, have new queen and king beds with plush new linens and towels. The master bath has a jacuzzi and walk in shower as well as a full bathroom next to the guest room suite. We have a futon and a new hide a bed with memory foam in the living room. And a brand new hot tub sits just outside in a private area. Our kitchen is fully equipped with newly purchased cookware, a gas stove and cook top, a full refrigerator with filtered water and an ice-maker and a large gas grill outside the door on the patio to cook while you're enjoying the mountain views. A beautiful kiva fireplace warms the living room with plenty of seating to enjoy from three plush couches as well as a large fire pit outdoors with ample pinyon wood for both. Our home is artist owned with original colorful Southwest paintings in all the rooms and many cultural touches from our world travels.
As noted,we also have a working studio and gallery of oil paintings by owner and painter Julie Nilsson. Access is with a key provided and visitors are welcome to see current work and what is available for purchase. We can assist with shipping if needed.
Additional amenities include a 42' satellite HDTV, DVD library and player, wifi internet access, iPod docking player and a full stereo system, new hot tub, new washer/dryer with laundry soap provided, iron and ironing board, toaster, micro-wave, coffee pot, porta crib and jacuzzi tub and private shower in the master bath.
As much as we enjoy the home, we love the peace and quiet of the open spaces that surround us. And you may not have really seen stars and the Milky Way until you have spent an evening as our guests. The sage covered mesa has an old road, immediately accessible from our acreage, which invites cycling, jogging or walking all the way to the Rio Grande Gorge if you like, with views of the mountains around Taos, the Jemez Mountains far to the southwest near Los Alamos and the far western horizon.
We visit our Taos home on a regular basis and as a result, it is very well maintained. We are always thinking about what upgrades we need to make - for us as well as you. We also provide complimentary cleaning service at the end of your stay but you may make arrangements for additional house keeping services by contacting our agent Wendy at Taos Getaways.
