Taos Condo Rental Photos and Description

This truly is a home-away-from-home, which we have carefully furnished and fully equipped to the highest standards as our part-time home. The style is traditional adobe beautifully integrated with Moroccan decor, giving the interior a rich ambiance. The feel is cosy and comfortable, with warm inviting colours, and furniture you can relax in.

If you love to cook, you'll find the kitchen fully equipped with major and small appliances, as well as a complete set of cooking utensils & more. Basic groceries are kept newly stocked up, quick meals are ready for your arrival.

The upstairs master suite is unusually spacious, with a sitting room, 2nd satellite TV, office area with hi-speed wireless DSL, printer, and office supplies. The private walled deck upstairs has a new gas grill, table, chairs, and umbrella for the summer. Responsible guests will find our home luxurious, very clean, and the perfect place for their trip to Taos.

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.

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.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED AND MORE

  • 5 of 5
I chose this property to stay for my husband's birthday because of the layout and the location (walking distance to the Plaza). I was more than pleasantly surprised when we arrived and the owner's had left a huge bouquet of fresh flowers, a bottle of champagne, a bag of chocolates, a welcome letter and a birthday card for my husband! There was also a fresh loaf of bread, a jug of milk, ice cream and frozen dinners (just in case I suppose but we ended up eating out for all meals except breakfast). Speaking of which, the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need to create wonderful meals! We enjoyed hiking at the Taos Ski Valley, funyaking on the Rio Grande and took advantage of the fun at the Fiestas de Taos held at the Plaza over the weekend. We dined at Doc Martin's located in the Historic Taos Inn, which was very good but even better was Orlando's. This condo has everything you will need for very comfortable stay and made evenings after the days adventures, nice and relaxing! Thank you for everything Lise!

LAST MINUTE PLANS

  • 5 of 5
We made last minute travel plans to New Mexico and we needed a place to stay. Lise was willing to work with us and was very helpful. Their home was perfect. It was conveniently located close to the plaza and had all the amenities necessary to make our stay comfortable.
