Enchanted Home in the Land of Enchantment

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting homes in Taos yearly for over 20 years. We've had the pleasure of staying at many nice ones but none as delightful as this home. The view is a magnificent one of pastures and soaring mountains and the diversity and beauty of the changing weather is just incredible. The house is at the end of the road and is very private. You can lounge on the expansive patios and toast the sunset or host a delicious dinner around the outdoor grill. Later, climb the spiral stairs and play a few games of pool with the new sound system providing your personal sound track. This is a house designed to create comfort.

Located between Ski Valley and Taos you're minutes from everything including many excellent restaurants, galleries and more dramatic hiking trails than you'll probably have time to explore.

Ron, the owner is a great guy who is very caring about your needs.

It was apparent the house is a rental, things are not kept..

  • 3 of 5

The area is nice, the house looks as though it was very nice when it was built. I did not find and book to sign and there were no instructions to access the pool that we saw. Overall, it was ok i would not rent again. We had issues finding the house and NAV systems did not locate the house. The owner did not return either calls nor emails uppn our arrival. We had to seek out the house location independently.

Owner's Response: The customer received detailed check-in instructions before their arrival . I only received 1 text message during their entire stay about their GPS problems . I tried to call them back 4 times , without an answer . Since I never got a call or text back , I assumed they got in ok . The house is very easy to find . The homeaway map also pinpoints the exact location of the home. I NEVER received an email or call asking for assistance or indicating any problems with the house . I called the customer after they left this review and his main complaint was that his phone didn't work . My phone service works ( verizon ) and my house keeper's phone works. I asked him why he didn't use the home's internet to email me or call me when he was in town , He really couldn't give me a straight answer . He also said he has been coming to the area for 5 years , so I can't understand why he said it took him 2.5 hours to find the house . None of his answers made any sense . When I asked him why he said the house wasn't kept up , he said the house was fine and couldn't give me any details . He was angry that his gps and phone didn't work . I visit the house every month and try to keep everything well maintained . The customer indicates that he comes to Taos regularly , but keeps moving from house to house . I believe this customer is very hard to please . Nothing he told me made any sense . The last 7 reviews , ( including the one who checked out a few days before he arrived ) , are all 5 star . We always welcome constructive criticism and strive to improve and make our customers happy .

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVE this house! I can't tell you how many times my (adult) kids told me how great the house is! Spacious for everyone (there was my two daughters, son-in-law, grandson & myself). One of my daughters works remotely, so the wifi worked well for her & I gave her the back bedroom with one of the fireplaces. The house has 3! We also brought our dogs, which I really appreciated that we could as two of mine take meds.

The house is very close to Taos Ski Valley & Taos is only 15 min away. The house itself is in Arroyo Seco, a very sweet little town with little shops & places to eat. We really loved the views in this house, there are two pastures beside & behind the house with horses running through! The mountain views behind the house are breathtaking! All of us took multi pics of sunrises behind the house with the mountains & then in evening with the sunsets.

We took our dogs on walks & drove them to the Rio Grande to hike & our German Shepherd swam in the river. We also went to many of the historic sites in Taos, like Ranchos de Taos, Kit Carson Home, Taos Pueblo . So many beautiful churches & shops. I went to Ojo Caliente hot springs resort, not quite an hour away. Worth the drive for sure!

We hope to come back to Taos & really want to rent this house again if it's available. It's just a wonderful house in a beautiful neighborhood! Wish we could move there!

And Ron, the owner, has been quick to answer questions & is very easy to work with. Perfect house to stay during any visit to Taos area!

Beautiful home in the mountains with outstanding views and very private.

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved spending a week in this beautiful and private area. This home was large enough to accommodate all 10 of us with ease. The house was clean and well kept, The swimming pool was handy for us, it was clean and well kept also. We were so happy to have access for the kids to enjoy.

Again, we loved the rental and will look to stay here again next time we are in Taos.
