About Lise and Nick

We are retired professionals, originally from the south of England. We fell in love with the Taos area many years ago, and feel ourselves fortunate to live in such a beautiful and culturally rich area. We are now artists and own a gallery in nearby Penasco, on the 'High Road To Taos Scenic Route' - be sure to visit us during our open season, from May through October. Have a meal at the renowned Sugar Nymphs Bistro.

Lise and Nick purchased this condo in 2003

Why Lise and Nick chose Taos

The best of all worlds: so close to the centre of everything in Taos, yet on a quiet residential street.

We love the unique design of our home, with its warm, exotic décor, and we love the beautiful, serene garden setting.

We take easy day trips to fascinating places like Bandolier National Monument, Chama and its scenic railway, the Enchanted Circle and High Road - both beautiful scenic drives. Taos Ski Valley is just a short drive away, with snow sports in winter, and hikes in summer.

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
