Guest will enjoy the large Kiva fireplace with beautiful gas logs for warm cozy nights.

Property conditions & facilities

4/5 Good

Cute but not for us
Very cute casita located in nice cul-de-sac. Good communication with the host however we didn't realize there was no air conditioner and being that I have severe asthma we couldn't open the windows so we moved to another location. The host has offered to book us in the Fall when air conditioning wouldn't be an issue.

Cozy, cute, and clean!
This is a top notch rental. Everything has been thought of and staying here is so relaxing and peaceful. The house has been decorated thoughtfully and efficiently. It is in a quiet neighborhood that is close to the Taos plaza. It is a gem!

Second stay
We love this place. Perfect for the two of us and our two dogs. We went on amazing hikes everyday. Enjoyed Thursday night band and Saturday market. We highly recommend this beautiful home in wonderful location.

4/5 Good

Very nice.
My biggest beef was the check in process. I’d like it like a hotel reservation in that as soon as I make a reservation I get all the information I need, all in one place. In this case the information dribbled in over multiple emails over a period of weeks. It’s a major PITA to sift through long winded, repetitive but still inadequate messages.
