About Donna Brunton

29 year Taos resident

Donna Brunton purchased this house in 1997

Why Donna Brunton chose New Mexico

Convenient location with a wonderful feeling of being home. My house belong to the Merrill's who were artists, gallery owners and school teachers in Taos in the 40's. I love there story!

What makes this house unique

I totally renovated my house and in doing so put in a courtyard that not many houses feature. I kept the original wood floors and incorporated some of the pieces that the original owners used. It also has such privacy with the walled front yard and coyote fencing. I love my neighborhood.

A Perfect Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

We loved our 3-day stay at Hacienda Rosa. It is large, comfortable, interesting, and QUIET! for being so close to the center of the historic district. We could walk everywhere.

There were three of us, a couple and two singles. We (the couple) took the larger bed (which we were sorry wasn't in the master bedroom) with the hall bath. It was very interesting showering in a flagstone-lined shower! My cousin found the bed in the converted garage somewhat short but said it was comfortable enough. It is a bit of a walk from that (bed)room to the bathroom. We could have used a few more towels and soap, but it wasn't really a problem.

The gathering room with the fireplace (which sadly wasn't working) was large and comfortable. The large kitchen was easy to cook in, but it could use a few more fry/sauté pans. There was one small one and a medium-sized one that was in pretty bad shape. We enjoyed the eclectic décor-it really had that Taos charm we were looking for. We sat outside for two evenings, enjoying the quiet and the baying of coyotes. The wi-fi was reliable, the lighting was adequate, the ambience delightful. We loved the stained glass, the art, the furnishings.

For a charming, well-located, large and comfortable home rental in Taos, we highly recommend Hacienda Rosa.

Cool funky place and great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed your home. It looks better in person than the photos and worked well for our family as a base for walking around Taos and heading out to the surrounding area.

We look forward to visiting again.

New Mexico Getaway Haven

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful girls trip at the Hacienda Rosa...I would recommend it to anyone! Three of the five of us are Architects and we just loved the details throughout the house. Each day we discovered something new to enjoy. The house had ample room to spread out and relax without being on top of each other. The u-shaped layout actually gave us all our own wing of the house. We didn't have time to enjoy the front yard or courtyards (yes there are two) as we were constantly on the go exploring beautiful Taos. I can only imagine how nice the fire pit outside would be on non 30 degree evenings which were a bit cold for us Floridians in the group. The house was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need while at your own home. The house was within walking distance to everything in Taos so driving was not a necessity whatsoever which was quite refreshing for suburban dwellers. The only downfall to this house (not major) which prevented me from giving it a 5 is that the wonderful New Mexico Fireplace that we had hoped to use was off limits due to maintenance...but certainly not a deal breaker by any means. The house charm outweighed this little dilemma. And the other was just a small must smell that bothered two of my travel mates with allergies. It didn't really bother me, but they could notice, but nothing an open window or two couldn't fix.
