We spent a week at Casa Bella in Taos, NM. It was a fabulous vacation for our family of 9. The house was absolutely beautiful. Well stocked in the kitchen with every convenience you could imagine and enough towels in all the bathrooms to accomodate a large group of people. It was very clean and well-maintained. The bedrooms were perfect for having two seperate master bedrooms where you could have your own space if needed. The stream in back was such an added bonus, and the new full porch on the back of the house was absolutely wonderful for family gatherings. We ate on the back porch every morning and every night. The caretaker was so helpful and the mangement team provided wonderful customer service from the moment we inquired about the home, through the booking and staying of our vacation. We would absolutely recommend this luxury home! If you are looking for a warm feeling place to relax and regroup after a busy day shopping, hiking, swimming and many other things to do in the area, than this is the place for you. Easy access to Taos and Taos Ski Valley and yet you feel removed from the hustle and bustle of city life. Some things we would also recommend to do were: Taos Ski Valley for hiking or riding the ski lift chairs to the top of the mountain (and some of the best hot chocolate we have ever tasted at the Hot Chocolate Experts); the Rio Grande Gorge; Taos shopping at the main square; a wonderful toy store called the "Toy Store" with a fabulous playgound in back for kids to play called the Twirl (this is in the back of the main square); visiting the Taos Pueblo; eating at the Gorge and La Cueva Mexican (both in the heart of old Taos)- we had great food at both places, and right down the street in Arroyo Seco is a scrumptious place for breakfast or lunch or just ice cream called Taos Cow; cute little stores in Arroy Seco too; and also a wonderful grocery store called Cid's where you will find great quality food and nice prices.
