About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Full Bathrooms (Sleeps 4-5)

Casa de Suenos/ Welcome to "Our Little Dream House". We purchased this house for quick summer get aways, art lessons and ski trips. Since we are now retired, we no longer NEED to get away, so while we are not using it, we are happy to share it with you.

Cozy in the winter the new carpet feels great underfoot… new mattresses, and a new sofa bed, You will find this is not a " run-down ski lodge". Its a great little home in town. We keep it clean and fresh, and take pride in keeping the house comfortable and inviting. We are fortunate to say that our renters treat it as if it were their home too. Come to Taos, stay awhile. Make yourself at home.

This home has two master bedrooms, each with a full bathroom. It is laid out perfectly for two couples or any guests who each have their own space and it works well for a family too because of the third queen bed/couch. Great girls get away house too.

Just 3 blocks to the Plaza, enjoy great shopping, and dining. Our home is an easy drive to Taos Ski Valley, Arroyo Seco or Santa Fe. Since the home is authentic adobe and has passive solar heat with windows to the south, it is warm and sunny in the daytime and comfortable and warm at night. The fireplace in the living room adds the perfect touch during the winter and the adobe keeps it cool in summer. Taos does not need air conditioning, its located on hight desert, it gets cool every night thru the summer.

We have paid particular attention to the details that will make you feel right at home. This is no stripped down rental house, but a sweet home with lots of little extras like flannel sheets in winter and goose down comforters keep you cozy.

During the warm months the courtyard is shady and cool for summer dinners, and it's very private. We have ceiling fans in both bedrooms.

Our goal is for you to return year after year and stay with us. We hope you will feel as though this is your 'very own' vacation home.

Located just 2 1/2 blocks to the Plaza an easy walk to nearby Bent Street to visit art galleries, great shopping, or just browse around this historic town. There is something going on all year long in Taos.

We often have adult students stay at our house because of the close proximity to cooking classes, art classes and writing classes held nearby. Ski Families love that some folks stay in town while the rest go ski and everyone is happy. We have many repeat guests….

WE DO ALLOW GOOD DOGS....... However.....this is a NON-SMOKING home.

About Chris

I am a native of Colorado and Randy was raised in the Chicago area. Randy is a retired Architect and I am an artist..…We both love the southwest and this home is a manifestation of all we love.

Remember this is Taos....Its not polished or formal, its very clean, well maintained and comfortable/ funky.. and fun.

Chris and Randy

Chris purchased this house in 1984

Why Chris chose Taos

We chose this casita as a get away just 5 hours from our home. Randy comes to Taos for the nearby golf and mountain bike riding... I enjoy coming to Taos to paint. We are both amazed that there are so many great places to see and to eat!

We are experienced hosts who strive to make this the most convenient and comfortable Taos vacation lodging experience possible. Casa de Suenos is a guest house for family, friends and vacation visitors looking for a true Taos style place to stay. They are wonderful hosts who want you to come enjoy the uniquely special town of Taos and its environs

What makes this house unique

A cozy, comfortable home, with an adobe wall in the living room. A courtyard that is functional and private. Close proximity to stores and shopping but you feel removed and tucked away.

Perfect house for pets. Fenced courtyard... $10.00 per night for a pet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was excited for these folks to stay because they were so excited to come to Taos for Christmas. Then the dramatic snow hit southeast NM.. bummer! We will make it up to them. THESE are the kinds of great folks our home draws... Thank you for treating our little home as your own... Come back this fall....

Great Stay and Play

  • 5 of 5

Would definitely recommend this home to anyone heading to Taos. It works perfectly for skiing and staying near the old town square too. We could easily walk to the shops and restaurants. You can take the side roads to the casa so to avoid the main street end of day ski traffic. Very well furnished, had everything we needed. They have lots of good reading material available in the home. Thank you! Terry from Austin, TX

Beautiful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful place to stay in Taos. The accommodations were warm and inviting. The decor was traditional Taos mixed with tasteful artistic extras. Everything we needed was provided in the kitchen. All of this and an easy walk to the square. We will be back.

Lovely Casa

  • 5 of 5

Chris and Randy, I want to thank you both for allowing us time in your home over the Christmas holiday. We were pleasantly surprised how bright and sunny it was, and ample room for the three of us. It was so close to downtown, and even though it got chilly at night, it was still bearable walking home. Brandon made breakfast for the our entire extended family one morning, and everyone enjoyed sitting around the living room. I didn't realize you were an artist and enjoyed your paintings.

Thank you again, and will certainly refer others to the home and keep it in mind if we return to Taos. Michelle, Randy, and Brandon

Charming, quiet, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed as one of 2 couples. It is perfect since there are essentially 2 master suites with a kitchen, dining area and living room in the center. We expected to take advantage of all the great restaurants in Taos but the kitchen was so well-equipped and functional that we chose to cook dinner in every night. The place is cozy and artful. So much attention to detail-the furnishings, art, etc were all 100% New Mexico and very charming. The owners clearly love their abode and we did too! Being a few blocks from the center of Taos was fantastic as we did not have to get in our car to visit the plaza, etc-but we were far enough away that there was total silence at night so much good sleep was had. Due to many thunderstorms we could not use the patio but it is a charming colorful set up. Highly recommended! jill
