Travel and Architecture have been both profession and hobby for the both of us. We are always searching for that special spot to visit. We were lucky to find Casa Coyote when it was just a concrete slab and had the unique opportunity to design the interior spaces and details. And through the years, we enjoy being creative and adding our personal touches.
Joan Boone purchased this house in 1990
Our house was one of the first ones built in Los Altos. And, of course, we picked it because we think it has the best views in the neighborhood. The property and house face the mountain and it is a short walk to the Clubhouse with indoor pool. So, I guess we selected Casa Coyote because of Location and View.
Location, Location, Location. We really like the open floor plan which is designed to allow for separation of the dining room, kitchen, and great room and also a visual connection where the family can interact together.
We are a very fussy retired couple who have experienced a dozen or so VRBO rentals. We were fortunate to book this with our married daughter, son-in-law, and two grandchildren ages 3 and 5. We live in a house that is 100 years old and know what it takes to maintain an excellent place. THE SHORT VERSION OF THIS REVIEW IS WOW. The age of the home is somewhat of a mystery. I think it was built in the 80's. It looks like it has gone through a major renovation with new Pella windows. The house was spacious where everyone could spread out including an area for all the toys that we brought for the grandchildren. There was a ample supply of things that we needed and most important it was very, very clean. From our standpoint it was perfect. The pool was across the street, an easy walking distance even in cold weather. The small town close by was charming and the kids loved the skiing which was a short drive away. We hope to return to the house again just after the Thanksgiving holiday.
This was the first trip to the area for my family of five, and we absolutely loved this serene and comfortable house. The beautiful views across the plain to the mountains, the summer wildflowers, the purple sage framing the kitchen window... just perfect. The location a mile from Arroyo Seco was ideal for us, with a.m. walks to Taos Cow for coffee and great restaurants to choose from -- and about a 20 minute drive into Taos proper.
We had a wonderful trip to Taos and what made it perfect was the relaxation and ease that Casa Coyote provided and all the fresh powder at the ski mountain.
Thank you again
Casa Coyote is located just beyond the small village of Arroyo Seco which is a tourist destination in itself. Arroyo Seco has quaint shops and an internet cafe with home made pastries. Just beyond Casa Coyote is located the Sangre de Christo Mountains with its many hiking, biking, and horseback trails among streams and trees. Taos Ski valley is up the road which offers skiing, snowboarding, hiking to Williams Lake, and in the summer ski lift rides.
