Ah, autumn in Taos. This season offers warm days and cool nights. Aspens turning. Come to Luna Vista in Taos, a spacious adobe home. Enjoy the glorious views of Taos Mountain and the Sangre de Cristo Range from the front porch or the hot tub. Or, take in the views from Luna Vista's roomy interior. Sleeping features are a bedroom with a massive king sleigh bed and another with two queens. The sofa pulls out to a queen in the living room as well. The house is built with traditional viga ceilings and tile floors and sports furniture built for comfort, a complete kitchen with enough room for two cooks, original Southwestern art work and a cozy TV nook with recliners off the living room. The banquet-type dining table and openness make for great for entertaining yet the home encourages intimate getaways as well. While in Taos, visit the Taos Pueblo, or any number of shops, restaurants, music venues, museums and art galleries. Enjoy Taos Ski Valley or one of the many colorful towns nearby, then return to the serenity of your accommodations.

About Sally Ooms

I have a career as a print journalist, and wrote a non-fiction book at a casita on the property. The book is called Finding Home: How Americans Prevail. A native of Kansas City, I lived in New Mexico for more than 20 years. I moved to the California Delta in 2013 after an extensive book tour, and am plotting another book. See findinghomestories.com

I still make all the bookings and oversee operations from afar. A manager on site sees to visitors' needs.

My mate and I are travelers, part gypsy. We have spent eight weeks in New Zealand junketing about in a camper van, then four weeks traveling around Australia. We have a BMW motorcycle which we took to Alaska a few summers ago, the north shore of Lake Superior and the Grand Canyon.

Cooking, gardening, hiking, swimming and painting all top my list of fun things to do, along with appreciating my partner's photography.

Sally Ooms purchased this house in 2003

Why Sally Ooms chose Taos

The mountains and quality of light found in and around Taos have become part of my soul. I love the organic feel of an adobe house. Plus I am a sucker for a view. That's why I chose my particular viewing spot. The sunrises and sunsets always delight. Watching the moon rise from the portal is magic.

Perfect House for the Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Luna Vista is a truly beautiful house with amazing mountain views all around. The photos really don’t do it justice. You get a true Taos feel from this house with all of the beautiful viga ceilings, tile floors, comfortable furniture, local artwork and rugs. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, pots & pans and spices. The hot tub and grill were great to have too. The house is beautifully landscaped with places to sit and enjoy the scenery. Although with all of the great windows & views you can enjoy views from the couch too. Sally was extremely accommodating, accepting our reservation just as she was leaving for a trip of her own. Casey, the property manager was very nice and helpful as well. This home is centrally located just minutes from downtown Taos, the gorge and the enchanted circle. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable for our week’s stay. Thank you Sally for sharing your wonderful home. We hope to return soon & often.

Wonderful place for a relaxing weekend at Woolfest

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay. The house was a lovely adobe style home, clean and well stocked (lightbulbs were available for replacement when a lamp went out) and there was a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers for our arrival. Really could not think of any improvements. Enjoyed the hot tub and sitting outside with friends. It was very comfortable for 5 people to relax and cook and visit...and spacious enough that we could take time out for a nap. I could have stayed another day just to read Sally's lovely books. Lovely views. Thank you so much.

Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The house is lovely, true Adobe style. Had a nice time soaking in the hot tub while looking at the mountains. The views are " Beautiful " We were there when a pretty good storm hit,and the sky was awesome. Took so many pictures !!!!
Needed a car to get around, but that's part of the beauty of being on vacation. We felt very secluded, wanted to unwind and get away from the hustle and bustle. This place was just right.......
When we visit Taos again, I would stay at this beautiful home again.

Great Taos Rental House!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Luna Vista. The house was great - clean and beautifully decorated. The mountain views and hot tub were wonderful. Access to Taos was convenient. Any questions or issues were solved right away. We have two children (3 and 6) and they loved the house. Although we had to be careful not to break or ruin any of the nice decorative items, it wasn't an issue at all. We would love to stay here again.

Wonderful!

We very much enjoyed our week at the Luna Vista! Everything was beautiful! The house is lovely, and the views are fabulous! The house was very clean and provided everything we needed for a very comfortable stay! And Taos is so beautiful and interesting, from the adobe buildings, to the Pueblo, and all of the history there; just fabulous! And we very much enjoyed the hot tub, too! I highly recommend this vacation rental!

Autumn at Luna Vista

  • 5 of 5
We greatly enjoyed a month long visit to Luna Vista. Aside from one technical issue that was addressed and remedied by the nearby caretaker, our visit was perfect. The home is roomy, bright and cheerful. We enjoyed the vista of the Sangre de Christo mountains from the front porch. The sunsets and the Milky Way are spectacular. Sally was very easy to work with and we would highly recommend Luna Vista to anyone. Thanks again!

Notes Pets are welcome. When you arrive, you will be asked to give my managers a check for $50 per pet as a refundable deposit. The check is then torn up after the maid checks the home. Usually no problem. There is no fenced yard. Pets must be walked and taken with you when you go out or kenneled. I have a kennel if you don't want to travel with one.
I send a contract stating the amount for deposit which is normally half the rent minus the tax. Renters may return the signed contract with a check or write in their credit card. If they are not comfortable with that, they are able to call me with the number. After I receive the contract and payment, I send an invoice showing the rest of the amount due upon arrival. Last minute is thru e-mail.
