About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Baths (Sleeps 2-4)

An authentic restored two story adobe compound located on historic Ledoux Street, Casa de Flores Navajo Casita offers a peaceful quiet location within minutes of walking to the Taos plaza, John Dunn Plaza shops and famous Bent Street with all its' shops and eateries. The house is just steps away from the renowned Harwood Museum, the Blumenschein Museum, and the R.C. Gorman gallery.

The Navajo Casita was formerly the art storage building for RC Gorman. Restored in 2013-14, parts of this home date back 200-300 years. The home has been completely renovated with new windows, floors, kitchen and bathroom.

This unit is ideal for a couple or family as the bathroom is located immediately off the upstairs bedroom.

Often painted by local artists, this charming adobe has all the conveniences of home! Decorated in tasteful New Mexican decor, the home has original wood vigas & ceilings, gas kiva fireplace, & beautiful talavera tiles.

Casa de Flores Navajo Casita is a spacious one bedroom home, measuring 1,200 sf. The bright, cheerful upstairs bedroom features a king size bed and new bathroom. The kitchen and bathroom are new and the home is also equipped with satelite television and high speed DSL internet service.

Casa de Flores Navajo Casita can be rented with the Casa de Flores #61210 and Gallery Casitas #428403 next door to accomodate larger groups.

The entrance to Ledoux St is very small and narrow and will not accomodate RV's or campers. Casa de Flores Navajo Casita has one dedicated parking space in front.

Style + location + kitchen = FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained, tastefully decorated, very comfortable. Well stocked kitchen - we found everything we needed, from coffee grinder to hand-held citrus squeezer for margaritas. And literally steps from the Harwood Museum (a must-see). Owner wonderfully responsive throughout booking process and during our stay. If I go back to Taos, will definitely stay here again.

The three C's: Clean, cozy, comfortable, and a five star home away stay!

  • 5 of 5

Family of four would definitely stay here again! Helen was a true gem to work with. She is friendly, sweet, helpful, and was quick to return my calls with any questions I might have :) The casita was everything it advertised it would be. The home was tastefully decorated with New Mexico art, comfortable/clean furniture, super comfy bed with quality sheets and coverlet, fluffy white towels you would find in a five star hotel, cozy fireplaces, adorable...just adorable! Another reviewer had said the stairs were steep, but my whole family did not find them steep at all. Also, the driveway fit my Extended SUV with no problem. Yes, the road is a one way coming in, but we had no problem parking our family size SUV. Marjorie Salon is literally steps away for an excellent facial and Black Horse Winery next door was a treat to visit at the end of the day. We skied during the day and enjoyed the ability to stroll the plaza in the evening for authentic New Mexican food. Can't wait to stay here again!

Charming, unique, tastefully furnished Adobe structure with updated kitchen.

  • 4 of 5

Even though this is a casita with uneven floors, low ceilings, and an odd floor plan, it has a fully-equipped modern kitchen, plenty of electrical outlets, and lots of natural light. The bed and furniture are comfortable and there is beautiful artwork in every room.

With daily temperature swings of Taos in October, from freezing to above 70F, the casita was always comfortable. It is centrally-located to all things Taos. I found it quiet. I stayed alone and I felt secure.

A major drawback to this property is that there is only one bathroom, upstairs, off the one bedroom, climbing a steep staircase of 15 steps. I didn't want to drag my suitcases upstairs, but there was plenty of closet and drawer space upstairs. I wouldn't recommend potty-training toddlers. It is a refurbished casita, so the rooms are small, but a perfect size for one to four. The table seats six comfortably.

If Taos weren't so far from Los Angeles, I would definitely stay here again. I enjoyed the folk art and the gorgeous tile work in the kitchen and bath.

The kitchen had every appliance I needed, including a dishwasher. This casita is not furnished with someone's cast offs and mismatched silverware. The owners put a lot of thought into providing everything needed for the cook, including unexpected items like a lemon squeezer, crock pot, bake ware, and even a footed cake plate. I didn't, but you could bake a turkey.

Not being a fan of spicy New Mexican cuisine, I bought groceries a short distance away at Albertson's and cooked all my meals at the casita; but there is a microwave, many restaurants, and a McDonalds nearby, if you don't want to cook.

TV signal was strong and clear on the flat screens. I was able to do on-line course-work with the Internet connection and all of my electronics charged just fine. I brought my own reading material, but there is a small library of art books. DVDs were available, but I didn't use them.

The bathroom has a big shower only, but it's beautiful. The sink looks like hammered copper. Beautiful tinware mirrors.

Bring your own shampoo, but there are plenty of cleaning supplies and an efficient stackable washer/dryer, with soap and dryer sheets provided.

I only communicated by e-mail, but I found Helen to be responsive and helpful.

Ledoux is a quick left after the Byzantium restaurant and is easily missed. It is narrow, winding, and doesn't look like a street. GPS and Mapquest are not helpful. Follow Helen's directions.

Wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting the Casita on Ledoux for two weeks in August and we will be back again. The house is immaculate, charming, and so convenient to the Plaza. We can walk to shops and restaurants! Helen is wonderful to work with and we would recommend this vacation rental home to anyone.
