About the property

Great, comfortable home in perfect location

This is a wonderful, cozy home located in a private, quiet little cul de sac a short walk to the Taos Plaza. This home has everything you could want for your special Taos vacation.The home has natural plaster walls and Red Fir beams throughout. The floors are Saltillo tile and wood with radiant heat throughout. The great room features a large leather sofa and comfortable chairs in front of a wood burning kiva fireplace-lots of fragrant cedar firewood for your enjoyment too. The large dining table seats six comfortably. The kitchen is small, but has everything you could want for meals at home and includes a dishwasher and disposal-unusual in Taos. There are two bedrooms at opposite ends of the home for privacy for two couples. One bedroom has a queen bed. The other has a king bed. All bedding is from The Company Store and is luxurious, beautiful and colorful. Each bedroom has ample closet space and a dresser. Good reading lights a must! There are two full baths. Each have double sinks and tub and shower combinations. The master bath has grab bars for tub and shower safety. The baths have lots of towels and all the bath supplies you need including shampoo and conditioner and even hair dryers. There is a comfortable family room off the great room with a queen sofa sleeper for a third couple or children. A new flatscreen TV offers Roku programming. Through the patio door is a fully enclosed back yard. This property is pet friendly. We even offer "dog sheets" if your pet prefers a couch or bed to sleeping on the tile floor (Ha ha) Original art is hung on every wall and whimsy is everywhere you look. There is a laundry room with washer, dryer, laundry supplies, iron and board. Parking is available for up to three vehicles including a garage for a small or mid sized car.

Wonderful place to stay in Taos!

  • 5 of 5

Sonido del Sol is a gem! I have booked through VRBO before, and this is the nicest home we have stayed in so far. Our family of 5, 2 adults and 3 kids, visited in August while touring New Mexico. We were very comfortable, using the 2 ample sized bedrooms on opposite ends of the house, with one child on a comfortable sleeper sofa in the den. The adobe style architecture and beautiful floors and bathroom tiles were lovely to live among. The home is immaculately clean. And the owner and caretaker have provided everything you could need, from ceiling fans in every room to the well supplied kitchen to the quality linens to the cozy touch of guest bathrobes in the bedroom closets. We easily walked to the Taos town center from the property. And the outside patio with grill, dining table, and Adirondack style chairs and fire pit are lovely if weather permits. The owner, and caretaker, are very welcoming and easy to work with. I highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: What a great and detailed review! Thanks so much. It is always so gratifying when frequent Vrbo users rave about this home. You know what others offer in comparison to what you find at Sonido del Sol. This is a perfect family home (Also works well for 2-3 couples) since the common area is large and inviting yet the bedrooms are nicely separated for privacy and have two conveniently located bathrooms. This is a lovely contemporary home with so many nice Southwest features as well as all modern amenities. Thank you for mentioning that the home is immaculately clean. My housekeepers take great pride in their work and I will pass on this comment to them. The ceiling fans, operable windows with screens and french doors keep the home delightfully cool in summer and radiant floor heating in winter is a cozy treat. Thanks also for mentioning quality linens. I love the Company Store for all linens and bath towels. I find guests often comment on my cozy robes. After all, you are on vacation and should be pampered a bit right? This is such a peaceful and quiet neighborhood but so nice to walk to the Plaza in only a few minutes. The fenced back patio is always popular since guests love outdoor spaces in our wonderful Taos summer and fall weather. Dogs are welcome too and the back yard is completely fenced. You were enjoyable to work with and both Jeff and I do hope you will return for a future visit.

The property was beautiful, spacious, clean, had all the essentials and more. There was nothing we needed and we appreciated all the little touches and charm.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed the home and yes it really has it all! Great house with common area yet privacy in bedrooms and baths. Quiet location, but a short walk to Plaza. It has been such a pleasure for me to be a part of this vacation rental. So glad you liked the "little touches" Little touches and whimsy are my strong suit.

Beautiful modern home in classic adobe style, a great base for the Taos area

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay in this property. The house is immaculate, well furnished, very comfortable. Taos Plaza is less than a 10-minute walk, Taos Pueblo is about a 10-minute drive. Great location! The property manager was very helpful, and there were lots of instructions that helped make our use of the house carefree. I could write more, but suffice it to say everything was great. If I could quibble, I could have used some nonstick pans, but that's a minor detail. We liked the house so much, we extended our stay an extra night. If you're in the Taos area, Sonido del Sol is a perfect base for up to 6 people. I had considered staying at other VRBO properties in the area, but I'm glad that I picked one in Taos itself and not farther away. We toured Taos on foot and saved the car for other excursions. Thanks for the great stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks and so glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes this a great and increasingly popular vacation rental. It feels homelike and comfortable and so many fun things to look at. The location is ideal. Quiet neighborhood but as you said walk to everything downtown. I'm glad I was able to help you and answer questions. That is something I always enjoy as the Taos Manager. The owner is really good with clear information for guests and is always making upgrades. The sofa sleeper for example is brand new and I am willing to bet it will not be long before he has me purchase new quality non stick pans. You'll just have to check that out on your next visit...

A wonderful home in the heart of Taos!

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming, welcoming home right off the plaza in Taos. Walking distance to everything. It was the perfect size for my husband and two daughters 18 and 20. We enjoyed the back yard and ate our meals outside at the table. All of us felt safe in the neighborhood and took nightly walks. We would love to return in the future. Melissa Serfling was on the ball and got back to me in a timely manner. She made me feel as though she was truly available for us if we needed anything. Overall, one the best vacation rentals we've had over the years.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your glowing review! Everything you said is so true. It is a wonderful home. So well furnished, interesting local art and whimsy here and there. It is hard to believe you are so close to the Plaza when the home and neighborhood is so quiet and peaceful. Glad you enjoyed the outdoor space too. We have plans next summer for more outdoor seating and big pots of color. You must return! Thank you for the nice things you said about me too. I think one of the most important assets for a manager or owner of Vacation Rentals is to be friendly, helpful and informative to our guests.
