LOCATION AND CHARM

  • 5 of 5
We spent 4 nights in this wonderful home last August - My husband, myself, and our three sons. The house was perfect! Within easy walking distance of the main street with restaurants and shops. And in a terrific neighborhood. We slept with the windows open every night, and it was so peaceful. The house has authentic charm and decor, the beds are comfy, the kitchen has everything you could ever need, and the bathrooms were well stocked. We spent our days hiking canyons, going to galleries, and eating great food! We also met the next door neighbor, Dhari, and her awesome dog, Bodhi. She is terrific! The house has a warm, historic, family feel and is updated to the 21st century. We'd definitely stay here again.

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!

Excellent place for a ski trip stay. TSV only 20 min drive away. After skiing, this place has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Everyone in our group had a comfortable bed. Enough bathrooms to prevent morning log-jambs and allow for après-ski showers. Great hot-tub. New BBQ. Kitchen is fully stocked with all the gear you need to put on a spread. Cozy fireplace to add to the comfort. All the best restaurants and bars and shopping are within a short walk or an even shorter drive. The owner (Linda) is very helpful with any issues, which were few, and is a knowledgeable resource for all things Taos. You won't be disappointed by choosing Linda and her charming and fully-equipped rental. This is our 2nd stay and we will be back! Mark Lowery, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

AUTHENTIC CHARM

  • 5 of 5
Having been wanting to stay at Desrt Oak for some time, and was not disappointed when the opportunity arose. The authentic adobe craftsmanship along with the cosy interior decor, convenience to center of town and the wonderful history of Desert Oak and the owner's delightful, warm, considerate vibe, all contributed to our fantastic stay in Taos. Clean and well stocked kitchen and baths, peaceful neighborhood. I will be back!

CHARMING AND CONVENIENT

  • 5 of 5
Staying at Desert Oak was perfect for us. The listing description proved true in every way. It is an easy drive to skiing and a short walk to shopping and restaurants, not to mention the charm and authentic feel of the adobe home. The tile throughout is especially lovely. There was plenty of room for our large party and I was amazed at the well equipped kitchen (I needlessly brought kitchen extras ony to discover that the owner thought of everything!) I also appreciated Linda's personal attentiveness during our stay. She was very helpful,and accommodating, always available, but not intrusive. I highly recommend Desert Oak.

LOVELY HOME IN THE CENTER OF TAOS

  • 5 of 5
We were so happy when we found this home for our annual employee gathering in Taos. We've returned every year for the past 7 years. The location couldn't be better for walking to local restaurants, Taos Plaza, Kit Carson Park and our nearby office. We particularly appreciate that it offers the option of renting the main house along with the suite, or renting separately when we have smaller groups in town. The wireless broadband connection is handy for getting work done in the evenings. Our employees enjoy the hot tub and grill in the large back yard. We've come to count on the home consistently being clean and inviting, and there's always a little "treat" of fresh flowers and/or chips and salsa waiting for them when they arrive after their long trip to Taos. It feels like home away from home but only better, with truly special Taos charm! We'll be back again next June or sooner!
