Casa Azul/Charming Downtown Casita

Historic cottage in Taos
This charming and private casita is perfect for one - three guests. It's a short walk (three blocks to the downtown Plaza) with on site parking. It has been totally remodeled and renovated by me with new windows, bath and kitchen complete re do.
Casa Azul is furnished in my always popular "Melissiana Style" which is antiques, Consignment Store and Estate Sale treasure, all original Taos art and of course my sense of whimsy throughout!
You enter down a flagstone pathway to your cozy little house. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you might need. I always say that if I don't have it, you won't need it! Refrigerator and gas stove with oven. Great random tile counters and I do have so much fun re purposing kitchen cabinets...
The living room has a loveseat sofa sleeper with a gel foam mattress for one with all bedding, coffee table and entertainment cabinet. I put in a corner gas log stove for heat and wonderful ambiance. Just like a wood burning stove, but no logs or ashes to deal with.
There is an equipale (Mexican style) table and two chairs. Bright, fun and festive dishes with nice big coffee mugs.
The bathroom is totally re done with random tiles and all amenities.
The bedroom has a tongue and groove wood floor that I "played" with after a staining mishap. (Don't believe you can stain and seal with one product and don't stain boards outside on a hot/sunny day!) Queen bed, good reading lights of course. There is a closet complete with cozy robes and a dresser.
There is a totally private rear landscaped walled back courtyard garden with table/chairs and a BBQ. The patio is flagstone with a large shade structure. As with all my properties Casa Azul is dog friendly I provide dog sheets for furniture and bed as well as mutt mitts for clean up. Dog fee is $10 per dog per night which may be left upon departure.
This casita is part of a compound with a main house (Casa Grande VRBO 860840) with three bedrooms/two baths and another Casita (Casa Verde Vrbo 920144) one bedroom available. All can be rented separately or can sleep a group of 2. Each space has a private entry and private wall garden courtyard. The only space that is shared is the full laundry room which is available for all guests. All have off street parking.
This entire downtown compound was featured on the 2017 Taos Home & Garden Tour. On a Saturday in August I got to show off my style to 500 tour goers!
If Casa Azul is booked for your dates please look at Casa Verde Vrbo 920144 which is very similar and in the same compound.
Guest accommodation at this cottage offers DVD players and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils. Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit and hairdryers.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on-site or nearby; fees may apply.
