Holiday home in Taos with kitchen and patio
The Birdhouse

Our calendar is updated in real-time & our nightly rates are accurately displayed. Simply enter your desired dates and click 'Book Now!'

This restored 1925 villa features classic adobe design, genuine plaster walls and vigas ceilings, and three porches, all with spectacular views of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. The interior is bright and happy, illuminated by lots of natural light flooding in through large windows with beautiful views of the natural New Mexican landscape that surrounds the home. You'll love watching your favorite movies and shows on the flatscreen cable TV while warming yourself next to a hot fire in the fireplace on those frosty winter nights. And summer guests can enjoy al fresco meals outside on the patio table. Speaking of meals, the full kitchen is open and, well, gorgeous! Lovely cookware hangs from a pot and pan rack suspended over ample counter space, sure to inspire even the most demanding chefs. This home also features individual room heaters and plenty of sleeping accommodations for up to four guests, plus 1,360-square-feet of living space, so everyone will have plenty of elbow room and privacy during their stay. Late afternoon winds from approaching summer storms blow at the home’s chimes creating soothing sounds and the temperature may drop making for a lovely, cool evening on one of the three porches. Not to mention, magpies, ravens, and hummingbirds abound in the area to accompany you during your stay.

This area still retains its past agricultural and more rural charm. Yet, it is only two miles from Taos Plaza and John Dunn Shops where you will find unique boutiques, creative art, restaurants for dining, and a Farmers Market on Saturdays in the summer for purchasing meat, fish, and veggies for grilling at The Birdhouse. Naturally, there are lots of outdoor activities to take advantage of right next door such as snowshoeing, mountain biking, hiking, kayaking, and whitewater rafting. Shoppers will love visiting Taos Plaza, just two miles north, to find unique boutiques, eateries, and works by local artisans to enjoy. Taos Ski Valley is 40-minutes northeast with amazing ski slopes to shred with friends. You'll also be just over 10 miles from Taos Regional Airport.

Please note that there are evaporative coolers in the two bedroom closets for cooling the home using water.

3/5 Okay

Cute place but had quite a few issues
First of all, the decorating was very homey and well done. We had 3 adults getting away for a girls' weekend. The location on a quiet street near the town was very restful. I took the master bedroom. The bed was comfortable, however this room is near the large, load heater in the kitchen that makes clunking noises every time it turns on during the night. There was no hot water when we went to take showers the first night. It turns out guests are instructed to turn the heater to low when they leave. It would be nice if management turned heat up before next set of guests arrive. The worst part was my friend's single bed. She pulled back the blankets to discover a glob of hair. The sheets on her bed were also very worn and heavily pilled. We had to search for clean bedding and found a ripped sheet. There were only 2 drinking glasses for 3 people, If you are hoping for a dishwasher, there is not one. Only one bath towel per person. We ran out of Kleenex because the box was almost empty and no spare had been left. There is only 1 bar of soap provided for all guests, so bring your own if you don't want to share bar soap. There is a Keurig, but only 2 pods of coffee were provided for 3 people for 2 days, so bring your own.
