What an amazing vacation rental this is! in 1875 it was an actual chicken coop on a property that Santiago Martinez purchased for a cow and five pesos. Now only the original adobe walls remain and inside is a totally wonderful vacation rental! This space welcomes one to two couples or a small family and offers everything you could possibly desire in a Taos getaway!
There are two separate living spaces each with a private bath. There is a small yet well-equipped kitchen for breakfast or a simple meal at home. The large open living room features 20' high ceilings with vigas interspersed with cedar for a beautiful old Taos look. The tall windows make the space light and airy and offer wonderful views of the treed property. This home is spacious, comfortable and inviting. There is a large flat screen TV and a well-appointed wet bar.
The upper room has a comfortable queen sofa sleeper with all bedding. Double doors to the great room may be closed for nighttime privacy. It has a separate bath with a steam shower.
Just off the great room is a bed alcove with a queen bed. There is an adjoining bathroom with a jetted tub and shower.
All the art is original and one of a kind. This casita is casual yet elegant and so inviting. There are many little whimsical touches.
Just outside the beautiful hand carved front door is a private patio with seating and a hot tub just for this casita. Parking is on site, off street and private. The extensive landscaping gives this property a feeling of seclusion, yet you are in the heart of downtown Taos. Your nearest neighbor is Our Lady of Guadalupe Church whose church bells are the only clock you need on vacation. The location of this property is ideal to enjoy everything Taos offers. You can easily walk to a dozen restaurants, shops, galleries and museums. This home is steps away from the historic Taos Plaza.
This home is part of a large compound with three other vacation rentals. It is a perfect location for larger groups where everyone can be together yet enjoy their own space and privacy. The Taos Territorial Compound is ideal for groups up to 16.
