Overview

Taos House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Nestled at the foot of Taos Mountain off the Valdez Rim Road, Stella Luna, our 1500 square foot, two bedroom, two bath home sits on a quiet lane. It's just 15 mins from the slopes of Taos Ski Valley, 15 mins from the Town of Taos & Taos Plaza, and 5 mins from the charming village of Arroyo Seco. Extraordinary views in all directions, high ceilings throughout, large windows, and a floor plan that offers both open space and privacy come together to create a home that graciously welcomes you back after a day of skiing, sightseeing, or shopping. In fact, if you're like us, you might never want to leave Stella Luna at all!

Our lovely home offers a spacious, master suite with a King bed, attached office/nursery, TV/DVD, a Jacuzzi bath, and walk-in closet & dressing area. The second bedroom, conveniently separated from the master by the common living space, comes with a queen bed & double futon, TV/DVD, and an amazing view of Taos Mtn. While the house can comfortably sleep four adults, it can easily accommodate two more on the sleeper sofa in the living room.

A cozy fire in the kiva fireplace will warm your bones while you dine or relax in the comfortable living area. Being travelers, cooks, and foodies ourselves, Stella Luna provides you with a well-equipped kitchen and a home tastefully decorated with furnishings, art and objects from near and far. A selection of movies, books, and games will help you unwind from your life in the real world. To soothe those aching limbs and enjoy our spectacular New Mexico skies, there's a hot tub on the back deck; from the SW facing portal you get views of the Truchas, El Pedernal (a leitmotif of Georgia O'Keeffe), sunsets, and the neighbor’s grazing cows.

We love children and they're welcome at Stella Luna. We'll work with you to provide you the amenities you need.

Fantastic Get Away!

  • 5 of 5
I recently had the pleasure of experiencing the Arroyo Seco area of Taos and Ski Valley during November when the Aspens were in full color (yellow-gold). Our stay at Stella Luna was exceptional. The owner, Sanjay really knows how to provide all the comforts of home in this vacation rental. There is a 360 degree view of the entire valley and the stars are spectacular at nite because of the romote location.
We heard the sounds of the coyotes during the night and were able to take a scenic drive during the day to the top of the mountain at Ski Valley )only a 15 minute drive from the house. Tim's Stray Dog Cantina
is a great place to have lunch and eat outdoors on the deck to appreciate the view of the mountains.
After hiking and sightseeing, we returned to our vacation home and were able to enjoy the outdoor jacuzzi and take in the views! We relaxed by the Kiva fireplace and had plenty of firewood to stoke the fire
all night. We enjoyed the great selection of DVD's and an excellent bottle of Australian Cabernet Savignon compliments of the owner, Sanjay!
Can't wait to book my next trip to Stella Luna!

Comfort, convenience, and captivating views

  • 5 of 5
Stella Luna is a gem for the couple or family who visit Taos in any season. Beautifully appointed rooms with two separate bedroom suites and a completely equipped kitchen. Mountain and meadow views to die for. Easy drive to Taos and quaint little towns. We were there in summer and so enjoyed the walking and the hot tub. Winter guests will be close to the ski area and lots of coziness.

PERFECT!

Thank you, Sanjay, for having us at your wonderful vacation hideaway. We were looking for a brief, restful vacation over the Labor Day weekend--and we got more than what we needed. Your home is roomy, secluded, and quiet. You have all the amenities to make the stay comfortable. The hot tub was relaxing. Taos is close by and accessible. Even the horses next door was accommodating--I got a great close up photo of them that now hangs on my family room wall! The view was spectacular. We will be back for sure.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed Stella Luna and highly recommend it. We have been going to Taos for 10 years and have stayed in a different vacation rentals and this ranks high on the list.

The home was laid out nicely for two couples as my wife and I were joined by another couple for part of our stay.

Our stay in Stella Luna was fantastic! The location was perfect and very quiet with beautiful sunsets and views of the mountains. Sanjay is the perfect host. He met us at the house and gave us a tour leaving fresh flowers, a bottle of wine and enough groceries to get started. We have previously stayed in vacation rental properties, but the attention to detail at Stella Luna was among the very best.

My friend and I spent a happy week here having an artists'/women's/life transition retreat. When we could tear ourselves away from the property we enjoyed exploring nearby arroyo seco, Taos, and the natural and cultural wonders of the area. Highly recommended! Our agent also made us feel very welcome and at home there.
