Casa de Flores great location in Taos - close to everything but also on a cute and very historic side street.

Guestbook comments from the owner

David and Lisa-

For years we've come to Taos in August to take in the scenery and culture, and escape 100+ temps in Oklahoma. It never disappoints and neither did your lovely little house! What a wonderful week – never had the tv on! We'll definitely be back!

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

We chose the residence mainly for it's location on Ledoux Street. The home, is Taos with its outstanding, both the exterior and interior, New Mexican décor. It is within very easy walking distance to museums, entertainment, the plaza and of course great eats! Thank YOU Helen for making our visit PERFECT!

Casa de Flores is a gem! If you like the photos, you will LOVE the property in real life.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house! The pictures truly do not do it justice. Casa de Flores is much more spacious and charming than we expected (and we were already excited to secure a booking there.) The kitchen, dining, living, and bedroom spaces are open and beautifully decorated. The bathroom, though a little on the compact side, is adequate with nice Talavera tile work.

Every special touch and amenity has been though of- plenty of extra towels and linens, cooking utensils and kitchen basics, board games, books... It was especially nice to be able to do laundry on-site. You can also tell the artwork and furniture were lovingly chosen for the space.

Endless possibilities for shopping and dining are all within easy walking distance. Despite being on one of the most famous streets in downtown Taos, the house was quiet during the hours we were not out exploring. It was neat to see how many people stopped to photograph the house! We really feel like we lucked out and found the BEST place to stay in the city.

Helen (the property manager) made everything very easy, and was communicative and prompt when we had questions. We will be back! :)

Great location

  • 5 of 5

the home was really clean and nice. The location is great - easy walking to the plaza, but still a quiet street. Only thing we didn't love is the bathroom is on the opposite side of the house as the bedroom, and the bathroom is pretty small. Otherwise, wonderful house.

Absolutely perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely perfect in every way. Tucked away on a magical street in the center of town, it's walking distance to everything, yet feels quiet and removed. As an interior designer myself I really appreciated the tasteful decor, from the furniture to the original art to the gorgeous handwoven textiles. No detail was spared. I also loved having the possibility of renting the neighboring unit when traveling with a larger party. We will be returning and can highly recommend this lovely casita.
