Petra or David Rael purchased this House in 1976
Why Petra or David Rael chose Taos
Peralta Lane originally was owned by David's Grandpa and over the years he gave parts away to his children. This particular Casita sits on its own fenced property, so it is secluded yet has an open field in the back where you can see the occasional horse, cow, cat lazily eat, hunt or what not.

Quite and comfortable house
A fantastic place to stay while in Taos. The house is in a very quite street and is in easy walking distance to Taos Plaza. The house has everything that you need as is a very relaxing home. If we come back to Taos, we will definitely stay here again.
A very lovely couple! It was a treat hosting these two, they came with the intention of familiarizing themselves with Taos and they did. Would definitely host them again. Left the place in good order and communication was great.
Wonderful Casita in Taos
We had a wonderful time at this casita. Nice space close to town but in the country. Exceeded our expectations.
The casita is quiet and feels like you are staying in the country even though it is very close to the plaza. I loved my walk every morning down the dead end road. The casita is clean and decorated nicely. Thanks to the owners for a comfortable stay!
Excellent Casita in Taos
This was the perfect location for my 2-week stay in Taos, reconnecting with an area I love but which I hadn't the opportunity to enjoy in 35 years. Very conveniently located in a quiet, lovely neighborhood and only a 15 minute walk to the plaza, I couldn't have asked for a better location, a more comfortable lodging, or more accommodating hosts!! Thank you Dave & Petra; I look forward to a return visit.
Great Taos Getaway
Casita Rael was perfect for a weeklong getaway. The house itself is very Taos traditional - adobe outside, and painted in traditional southwestern colors and art patterns within. The furniture isn't fancy, but neither are my wife and I. It is quite comfortable and very clean; that's what counts.
Outside, the front yard is well gardened, shaded with several cottonwood trees, and very comfortable to sit in and read in the heat of the day.
The house is on a tiny dead-end street with a large field directly behind it. Thus, there are practically no city or traffic noises; blissfully quiet.
The house is located near several major art galleries and about 10 minutes walk from Taos Plaza. You can enjoy the arts district without even starting your car.
Dave and Petra, the owners, live next door. They're not in your business all the time, but are there if you need them. And they are delightfully friendly and helpful.
Lovely little 3 room spot with a sunny private garden in front and sunset views in back, ona quiet dead end road away from the touristy bustle of the plaza. Wonderful host!
