About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2

This casita is located on a quiet one block dead end street just three blocks from the Plaza. It has a living / dining room combination. The dining table seats four and looks out at the rear courtyard garden. The living room area has a loveseat sofa sleeper with all bedding available. There is a wood burning kiva fireplace in the corner of the living room. Fragrant cedar firewood is provided for guests. Screened operable windows throughout the casita provide nice ventilation in summer. Each of the three exterior doors are screened. The living room and bedroom have ceiling fans. Enjoy a mountain view from the front living room window and a garden view from the dining area. The well equipped kitchen has everything you might need for meals at home. The newly tiled counter tops are just plain fun! The full bathroom with tub/shower combination is also newly tiled and well equipped. There is a queen bedroom with good reading lights, dresser and closet space with robes provided. This casita has total privacy since it is surrounded by a tall stucco wall.The courtyard is landscaped with in ground plants and also big ceramic pots with seasonal color. Large trees shade this area nicely in the summer. The patio has table and chairs and a BBQ. There is also a cushioned bench under an elm tree for relaxing. A large number of my whimsical recycled garden art pieces are displayed throughout the courtyard. As with all my properties Casa Verde is dog friendly and when the front gate is closed your dog has a nice outdoor space.

Casa Verde is part of a compound. Each of the three units may be rented separately of course or the entire compound may be rented and will sleep up to ten guests.

There is off street parking for each unit. On the property is also a laundry room for guest use.

This downtown compound was featured on the 2017 Taos Home & Garden Tour. On a Saturday in August 500 tour goers had a chance to check out my style. A fun day indeed!

If Casa Verde is booked for your dates please look at Casa Azul on the same property Vrbo 797997.

Thanksgiving 2017 stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time I have stayed at one of Melissa's properties and it was very nice. She has a very unique decorating style that celebrates the Taos atmosphere very well. As before, the house was nice and clean and accommodating. Look forward to coming back.

We loved this little casita! It is very functional and charming. Melissa made sure that our every need was met! We will definitely be back. As my husband state, "I could live here!" It's a short walk to the plaza but very quiet. We loved it!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed Casa Verde! I enjoyed meeting both of you and that gorgeous big black Texas truck. I'll be taking the essential oils and diffuser you left behind tomorrow to the post office to return. See you next time.

Beautiful space! Unlike any other . The décor is tasteful and very unique. I felt at ease and most comfortable in the home like atmosphere. All the amenities were there. If it weren't for all the restaurants nearby I could easily live without leaving the casita. The kitchen has everything you need(except for food).

The outside courtyard has a nice Zen like quality. It is private, peaceful, and a nice flavor of New Mexico.(there is also a grill for BBQ)

Wonderful space, wonderful time, wonderful proprietor.

I will be returning!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the nice review. Yes Casa Verde is a great little house. It is hard to believe the Plaza is nearby since it is so quiet. The private walled courtyard is always popular. I pride myself on providing all amenities for my guests and glad you appreciated them. Do come again for a future stay. Melissa

This place has everything !

  • 5 of 5

Location, charm, whimsy and pet friendly! What more could anyone ask for. Located just a short walk to the plaza with numerous shops and restaurants to choose from. Charming enclosed courtyard with a wonderful patio to enjoy your morning coffee , listen to the church bells and birds singing. This also allowed my dog a safe place to wander around. Whimsy, everywhere you looked both inside and out were fun and interesting pieces of decor to appreciate. Melissa thought of everything to make her guest feel at home!

My only regret was I had to leave so soon. I will definitely plan a return visit for a much longer stay. Thank you, Melissa

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the nice review. Yes this is a special little house for two and four legged guests. I love the peace and quiet. Church bells and birds but only three blocks from the Plaza. So exciting that this compound of four homes will be featured on this /summers Home and Garden Tour.

What a wonderful stay I had at Casa Verde! So relaxing, perfect for me and my doggies. I loved it.

Owner's Response: Delightful, restful and relaxing! What every vacation should be! So glad you enjoyed my Casa Verde. I love this little house and glad you did too. It's so quiet there that it's hard to believe you are only three blocks from the Plaza. I know both you and your dogs enjoyed my back patio under the trees. You stayed long enough to take advantage of my laundry which is always nice. Do hope to see you again in October at Casa Verde.
