About Cheryl Gibert
I'm a New Orleanian who fell in love with Taos many years ago. Taos has been our family's second home ever since.
Cheryl Gibert purchased this House in 2014
Why Cheryl Gibert chose Taos
Casa Rosa on Martyrs Lane is 3 blocks from the plaza, around the corner from Bent Street's shops and restaurants. All of Taos' urban pleasures are right outside the door and Taos's natural wonders are a short car ride away. Casa Rosa is an historic property. It oozes charm with its Mexican tiled bathrooms, thick adobe walls, adjoining courtyards and its custom iron work wrought in a forge in Questa north of Taos. Look for the iron snakes, frogs, and other garden animals on the windows amidst the iron vines twining up the bars. We simply fell in love with this charming, quirky house. We hope you will too.
What makes this House unique

We loved the two small casitas. It’s perfect location and beds were the best beds ever. Highly recomend this place and we will hopefully rent it again.
Loved being able to walk to the Plaza area and explore on foot without worrying about driving or parking. My family of five felt very comfy and cozy in Casa Rosa while the enchanting snow fell around us. Cheryl kept us up to date with all her communications. Would be happy to return!
A wonderful Taos Christmas and ski vacation
We traveled to Taos to visit my sister for Christmas and ski at Taos Ski Valley. We were looking for a 2 bedroom place for our family of four as well as a nearby one bedroom place for my mom. Casa Rosa and Casita de Lilas worked out absolutely beautifully! Cheryl was a wonderful host. She responded to our initial reservation request right away, stayed in close communication as our stay drew near, and even offered to put up Christmas trees in both places in advance of our stay. The location was perfect and we were able to walk to dinner and shopping. We initially wondered if it might be a noisy location since it was in town, but it was super quiet. Casa Rosa and the casita were both well stocked and had everything we needed for our four night stay. We really enjoyed having a full kitchen, dining room and two full baths, and we felt like we had plenty of room to spread out. My mom loved Casita de Lilas so much she didn't want to leave! We are hoping to visit Taos again soon and will absolutely stay here again!
Thank you, Brenda, for the review. I couldn't be happier that Casa Rosa and Casita Lilas worked well for your family. I do hope you return when I am in Taos and can meet you.
Loved Casa Rosa
We loved our stay at Casa Rosa. Very well kept up property. Very close to town also. Will definitely come again.
Great location, great place to stay
The location is as good as it gets. The place is fantastic for a variety of family and friend combinations. Very well equipped kitchen, cool interior and exterior. Loved this place. Hope to stay here again next year.
Thank you, Joe! Hope to see you for the Wool Festival again next September!
Cozy, quiet, yet in the heart of Taos!
Cheryl’s Casa Rosa was perfect! Exactly as described and better...one block from shopping and restaurants! Her Home is well furnished and equipped, attractive and quiet, even though it’s in the center of everything. We woke to the singing of birds and chime of the church bells! Our king sized bed was incredibly comfortable and bedroom secluded in the back of the home. We planned to travel with another couple and use both bedrooms, however they cancelled due to an injury...Cheryl happily refunded the extra person fee for us, which was unexpected given late notice! Generous! Well equipped kitchen, beautiful courtyard for sipping coffee in morning, cocktails at night! Really just a perfect stay...we’ll be back! Communication with Cheryl was quick, clear, timely! You must stay at Casa Rosa when visiting Taos. Note: Martyrs Steakhouse with bar right across the street...best spicy margarita and cucumber basil Gimlet outside of our home-made variety! Highly Recommend!
Thanks, Suzanne for the kind review--- and recommendation for those spicy marguerites at Martyrs Steakhouse! Didn't know about those! Look forward to your return!
Because of its amazing light, Taos has always attracted artists. Gorgeous and varied wilderness surround the town, and Taosenos take full advantage by skiing, biking, hiking, fishing, birding or just sitting quietly and enjoying the quiet. Nature is very much why people come to Taos.
In town there is the farmers market and quirky and interesting shopping, museums and galleries that focus on the many artists who have been drawn to Taos as well as on the Pueblo Indians who predated all.
Taos has great antiquing and flea markets.
The festivals are numerous and varied, from the Feast Days at the Pueblo to the Hispanic Fiesta in the summer to the Wool Festival in the Fall to many art and music festivals. And don't miss the July fourth parade in Arroyo Seco. There are writers conferences and Chamber Music and Blue Grass Festivals.
Food is varied and good. Green chili or Red-- you'll have to choose at the many New Mexican restaurants in town. But there are lots of good restaurants in town to satisfy whatever you may be yearning for whether its sushi, Thai, French or Fusion or Mid Eastern, breakfast or a hamburger.
Taosenos, who are Native Americans, Hispanics, and Anglos, celebrate life.
