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.

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.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We ended up booking this house 1 week before our trip. We typically always go to Ruidoso to ski and unfortunately they had to close their mountain early and last minute this year. Now that we have found Taos we will always go here! We also would love to always stay at Ron's place!

We had 8 guests and had plenty of room. Everyone we were with kept joking about how this place really seemed like "our house". Everything was easy to find/accessible and overall it just felt comfortable. All of the beds were very good quality beds, everything was clean and nice and Ron was always a phone call away. My favorite part about the house was that we were at the end of the development and we had an amazing view. You did not feel your neighbors around you and you truly felt like you were out in an open field.

This house was in the perfect location. Close to town and close to Ski Valley. Ron gave us recommendations for dinner and we loved the places we went.

We would LOVE to come back!

Great experience! We will definitely rent this house again next time we are in Taos!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group and due to the layout and size of the house, we were all able to enjoy some privacy and still come together as a group for meals, etc, and not feel cramped. The kitchen is well stocked, TVs in every room, great views from all directions (since the house sets at the end of the cul de sac, we were not looking into any other homes), and the location was perfect for satisfying all interests (skiing, shopping, gallery viewing, spa experiences, etc.). Again, we loved the rental and will look to stay here again next time we are in Taos!

Thank you Ron for all of your availability and assistance!

Enjoyed this place - again!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this house. We stayed 8 years ago when our kids were much smaller. We loved it BOTH times. The location is wonderful. Close enough to town to drive in when we needed to but away from it all enough to feel like it was a truly relaxing and peaceful vacation. Interests vary greatly in our family. Because of the location, I could easily drop skiers off in the morning, go into town for shopping or gallery hopping, and return for skiers in the afternoon. We also just spent a lot of time at the house. (Unfortunately, we had sick kids, all at different times). The house is so relaxing we spent lots of time reading, playing board games and soaking in the tub. With a variety of places to relax it was easy to "get away" even when we were all there together. The first time we stayed there was a lot of snow at the house, which was awesome. The way the house is situated at the end of the road we were able to step right outside and sled down the driveway! Plenty of room around the house for epic snowball fights and snow fort making. This time we had only had a couple of days of snow but with sick kids it was nice that we didn't have to go anywhere to still enjoy it. The house is well equipped and the beds are really comfortable. Ron was super responsive and so helpful. He helped us over the phone on the way in with directions before we even arrived. Can't say enough about this property. It's definitely a favorite for our family!
