Welcome - and we invite you to experience the magic of Casa Buena Vista!

Richard Kruse purchased this house in 2007

Casa Buena Vista is a dream come true!

It was more than 25 years ago when we first experienced Taos...and the magic lives on! And we now call it our companion home - a perfect getaway with 'all mod-cons.'

We love Taos given its beauty, culture and people - rich with art and steeped in history. Home to Taos Pueblo, the Village of Taos Ski Valley and a colorful array of surrounding communities like the charming Village of Arroyo Seco.

We chose to reside in the charming Village of Arroyo Seco given its small New Mexican village atmosphere - variety of restaurants, art galleries and specialty shops - and location [situated majestically below Taos Mountain (and the Taos Ski Valley Canyon) and conveniently between the town of Taos (9 mi) and Village of Taos Ski Valley (9 mi)]. And there are many folktales told in New Mexico about how some towns came to be. There are few, however, which can match the beauty of the tales surrounding the founding of the Village of Arroyo Seco.

A Wonderful Stay in a Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
My husband and I just spent a delightful week at Casa Buena Vista. True to its name, the home is literally surrounded by spectacular mountain views. We were even able to watch a rainstorm drench a few neighborhoods south of town, right from the front portal. I've never seen anything like it. The home is surrounded by wildlife, including prairie dogs who live in the backyard and we though we saw a coyote once.

The house itself is lovely: very new and clean, much too big for only the two of us. It could easily accomodate 6-8 people, with plenty of private spaces for older teens. We chose Casa Buena Vista for its location, not its size. Only a half mile from town, we were easily able to walk to the famous Arroyo Seco Independence Day parade and so avoid the traffic jams into and out of town.

The kitchen was better stocked with condiments, herbs and spices than any VRBO I've seen. And the organization of the owners is amazing. They've provided a binder with operating manuals for every appliance, everything is labelled (even light switches!) and easy to find and use. The master bathroom is handicapped accessible with grip bars and a shower bench. They have literally thought of everything. We will definitely be back with our whole family.
