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.

A beautiful Taos home! Our family experienced a wonderful Christmas here! It is beautifully furnished, has a handy fenced yard for pets, and is within a short walk to the plaza. The owner has thought of everything! Highly recommended! We hope to return!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your glowing review Marcia! I have felt so fortunate to be part of this wonderful home. I like to say to guests that if we don't have it, you wont need it. Do plan on a return visit since the outdoor space is so inviting in summer for both two and four legged guests!

Owner's Response: This home always gets such great reviews! Yes it is spacious, comfy -- cozy in winter with radiant floors and living room kiva fireplace and cool in summer with ceiling fans and shaded back yard. Perfect temperatures year round! Guests love the quiet cul de sac, but can walk to the Plaza in a few minutes. I always love it when guests mention the decor and personal touches. Another reason this home is so popular!

Owner's Response: Thanks fr your review. I'm so glad you enjoyed this home. Yes it certainly does have so much going for it. Comfortable, nicely furnished and decorated on a quiet street with rear patio and fenced yard. A perfect place to feel at home and just relax. Then as you said it is only a short walk to the Plaza. Do come again for a future visit.
