Pretty much everything about this home is exactly what my girlfriend and I were looking for when we planned our short trip to Taos. It was very private, accessible, affordable, and just far enough away from town that it offered the exact seclusion we were looking for. These things are nice to have, but they still don't offer up enough description as to explain just how perfect we thought the Casita Ave Maria was for us. I'm a big fan of how this home was put together and the simple, perfect amenities it offered. From the incredible views of the valley and sunsets, the outdoor fireplace, steam shower, large comfortable bed, open living space, and all around in general coziness, this place was perfect for the two of us and we would both definitely recommend.
Now if I could just live down taking my inexperienced snow skiing girlfriend to Taos Ski Valley for her first ski trip... I might not ever hear the end of that :) Advice.... Stay here in this home, but make the short drive to Angel Fire for snow skiing if you have a beginner in the group :)
