Overview

Taos House Rental Photos and Description

Condo/House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6), free wifi & cable TV

Great Rates for a luxury, fully-equipped home that works well for couples, families, and small adult groups. Do read the reviews from our previous guests, who have consistently given us 5-Stars for all aspects of their stay.

We are about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Taos and the historic Plaza, with its wonderful restaurants, innovative galleries, and antique shops.

We can also partner with our neighbours to accommodate larger groups on the same site.

This truly is a home-away-from-home, which has been carefully and tastefully furnished and equipped as our second home - we keep everything in excellent order. The style is traditional adobe beautifully integrated with Morrocan decor, which gives the interior a rich ambience. The feel is cosy and comfortable, with warm inviting colours, and furniture you can relax in. The 2-storey unit is self-contained - the end-unit of three adobe-style homes in a small private community.

If you love to cook, the kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, including a microwave, food processor & blender, coffee maker & grinder, electric kettle, toaster, as well as a complete set of baking dishes, utensils and chef tools. Basic groceries are kept newly stocked up, and quick meals are available if you arrive late.

The upstairs master suite and lounge is unusually spacious, with a King bed, full bathroom, 2nd satellite TV, DVD player, and a well-equipped office space with wireless DSL, printer, and office supplies.

The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed, and is right next to the second full bathroom. No stairs to climb!

Perfect for 2 couples to have their own space.

The upstairs walled deck looks over the community gardens and has a gas BBQ grill, dining table, chairs, and umbrella for the summer.

Guests have the use of the beautiful and serene gardens while staying with us.

There is a queen size sofa bed in the living room.

The property is approx. 1400 sq ft.

Taos Ski Valley is an easy 30 minute drive, Sipapu 40 minutes, and Angel Fire about an hour away. Santa Fe is a little over an hour's drive.

During the summer, the Rio Grande offers rafting and kayaking for all levels, and walkers can enjoy anything from a stroll around the pretty local neighborhoods, to day-long mountain hiking.

We ALWAYS respond to you with in a few hours. If you haven't heard back from us within 8 hours, please contact us directly at CapricornRentals at Gmail dot com or call us on 575 587 1076

About Lise and Nick

We love Taos, and have finally managed to semi-retire here after many years in Silicon Valley.

We originally come from the south of England, and particularly enjoy the gardens in and around Taos, which remind us of home.

There is so much to do here, that we still have a list of 'must-sees' that's several pages long!

We love to entertain, so we make sure that our guests have everything they need (plus a few little luxury extras!).

Lise and Nick purchased this house in 2003

Why Lise and Nick chose Taos

This has been our second home since we bought it; we love staying here! The gardens around the condo are quiet and peaceful. It's the perfect location for us: we can stroll into town to look around the galleries, and walk home after a wonderful dinner at one of the local restaurants. It's a great base for exploring northern New Mexico, with so many historical and cultural sites an easy drive away. Santa Fe is just an hour's drive, so you can take advantage of Taos lodging rates while exploring Santa Fe.

What makes this house unique

Our condo is located in one of the most sought-after associations in Taos, and on one of the prettiest streets. The quiet gardens with the koi pond are perfect for sitting peacefully with a book, and maybe a glass of wine.

Inside the unit, there are two separate sitting areas, great for families or groups who would like a little private space to themselves. The upstairs office space is a quiet place to check in to work (if you must!) The private deck is our favourite place to have breakfast and watch the birds in the garden.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was the best condo we've ever rented (and we travel a lot). The kids loved the pond with fish in the front of the condo, and we enjoied the big bedroom and the nice terrace upstairs.
I really appreciated the fully equiped kitchen, and all the nice utensils, silverware and plates. The condo is extremely nice decorated, very functional, and everything is well organized.
The owners were very friendly, and made us fell like home.
We're lookng forward to going back.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5
A girlfriend and I stayed here while attending a sewing seminar, and the condo was perfect. The stylish kitchen is stocked with all the basics. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom. She likes to take a bath and loved the tub. My shower was small, but was just fine for me. The setting is quiet, yet close to everything. If we go to the seminar next year we will stay here again.

Wonderful Stay at Casa de Canciones

  • 5 of 5
You've all heard the expression 'home away from home', well Lise and Nick's Casa de Canciones fits that bill to the T. From the first minute we walked in the door we felt like we had arrived at our Taos home. Beautiful, artsy, comfortable, relaxing, well equipped are just a few of the things that pop in my mind when I think of this condo. If you are going to be in the Taos area and want a convenient and luxurious place to stay....look no further because the Casa de Canciones is where you need to be.

2014, Spring Break

  • 5 of 5
When we walked into the condo....WOW! We loved the New Mexico decor, and felt like we had stepped back in time. It was perfect for our family of 6. The kitchen was large enough for family dinners, and some card games later at night. The private master bedroom upstairs with the jetted tub was a very nice bonus after a long day of skiing. And to have a washer and dryer was great. Definitely overpacked...will not do that again. Thank you Lise and Nick for the extra special touches when we arrived...wine, bread, milk in fridge. We have found our home away from home....and will be returning!!!

our fourth visit!

  • 5 of 5
We all had such a lovely time - we truly view staying at your condo as coming home, because we're so comfortable there. It makes our stay so much more enjoyable that you equip and stock the condo like a real home. We rarely use your supplies, but it's so nice to have the basics like salt, pepper and a tablespoon of olive oil when we need it!

Already looking forward to the next time!

Fall in Taos

  • 5 of 5
My husband andI (50s and 60s) and a young guest from Spain stayed at Casa de Canciones for 5 days in November, and it couldn't have been more perfect! Lise and Nick had the house stocked with staples for cooking, milk, nice bread, a nice bottle of wine, and some chocolates, and even some logs for the fire when we arrived. The location is perfect (easy walk to the plaza and restaurants), and the condo is beautiful. Huge upstairs master bedroom with unbelievably comfortable king bed and a couch, balcony and spa bathtub, downstairs bedroom that would sleep 2, huge kitchen and dining area, and a lovely sitting area with fireplace. Plus as large a set of books and brochures and maps of the area as you would find in a tourist office. We will definitely try to stay here any other time we come to New Mexico, whether as a family, or on trips with groups of friends. We arrived a little early so were lucky enough to meet Lise and Nick as they were finishing up their preparation of the condo, and that was an added bonus. Wonderful hosts. We like to hike and to raft, so definitely whenever we are back in Taos we will be hoping for a vacancy! Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Laura. We're so glad we got to meet you all - a rare luxury - and be able to have a real chat.
Glad you enjoyed the condo and Taos, there's so much to do here that it's hard to fit it all in, but you certainly had a good try :)
Thank you for being the perfect guests, and we look forward to your return visit.
Lise and Nick
