About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Town - 3 blocks to Taos Town, 18 miles to Taos Ski Valley, Easy walk to town, Historic property listed on National Historic Register, Professionally landscaped enclosed yard

"Casa Carlos" located in the romantic adobe Village of Taos, New Mexico is a unique and very special "National Historic Register" property within easy walk to the Taos Plaza with shops, galleries, eateries, Thursday evening live music and summer festivals. The original casita was authentically restored and beautifully landscaped in the 1990's by its "then owner" and founder of the now famous El Monte Sagrado Spa and Resort in Taos, NM. The interior, exterior and grounds are methodically tended to making this home a treasure for returning guests who call Casa Carlos their "home away from home".

A rare find with enclosed back yard and tranquil water feature pond, trickling water, shade trees and grass is a favorite draw fpr returning guests.

The current owners have poured additional love and care into making this a very special lodging destination by adding upscale furniture and furnishings, flat screen TV and Blue-ray for movie buffs.

An easy stroll to town and Taos Plaza shops, restaurants and galleries enables guests to come and go with ease and freedom from driving and parking the car.

Historically, Casa Carlos was part of an adjacent property owned by Oscar Berninghaus who was one of the 8 original founders of the Taos Art Colony. Oscar lived in the larger home and used the casita as his studio in the 1920's. The studio was much later named Casa Carlos after Oscar's son "Charles". The Harwood Museum (an easy walk) is host to many works of Oscar Berninghaus and of his 7 Taos Art Colony founding buddies. Guests are urged to take the historic walk and ponder the original works of the original owner of this special casita.

The back yard "almost" abuts with the original larger home which is also managed by Premiere Properties Vacation Rentals, LLC. The close proximity of these two homes is an elegant lodging solution for larger groups of up to 14 guests total. History buffs as well as the casual vacationer discover this gem to be a rare find in the realm of Taos vacation rental lodging in the captivating high desert setting of romantic Taos. Try it. We promise, “You will like it”.

Wonderful home with everything you need to have a relaxing time in Taos. We ate lunch outside and enjoyed the sounds of peacocks and peace. The hot tub was lovely.

I really can't say enough about how wonderful casa carlos is. It was my first trip to Taos and staying there made the trip complete. It was extremely clean and stocked with everything you might need. The history behind the adobe just adds to it's true Taos feel. The furniture was oversized and comfortable,as well as the bed,which I slept so well in! The backyard is a perfect, private spot for relaxing, especially the hot tub! And my dog loved the yard just as much as I did.The location is perfect for enjoying all that Taos has to offer.

A unique Taos experience

  • 5 of 5

Casa Carlos is a beautiful, cozy, peaceful home that has very comfortable beds, a well equipped kitchen, and a lovely backyard. We liked the quiet location and enjoyed walking to and from the Plaza. I enjoyed reading the books in the living room about the artistic heritage of Taos and taking a step back in time to enjoy the history of Taos. This unique home was so clean and aesthetically pleasing. In Taos, we enjoyed visiting Garden and Soul, which has an outstanding collection of southwestern art and pottery, eating at the Taos Diner, and sipping Black Mesa's amazing wines. Can't wait to return to Taos and Casa Carlos!

Reviewer Comments:

This home is quiet, comfortable, and beautiful. We enjoyed its peaceful location and its lovely yard, including the hot tub. The kitchen and laundry room had all the amenities we needed. The beds were very comfortable and we left Taos well rested. The books in the living room elucidated the history of the home and the local artistic community over time, which added to our enjoyment of Taos and this home. I would love to return again and would gladly recommend this place to friends. Garden and Soul was our favorite store; it offered a wide variety of Southwestern art and ceramics as well as a chance to create unique tiles from our own photographs. The Taos Diner was delicious and we ate there twice. The Black Mesa wines were outstanding! Can't wait to return to Taos!

This is one of the nicest for rent by owner places I have stayed. It is very warm and cozy. The backyard is a sanctuary. The place is also a short walk to the plaza.
