WALK TO PLAZA, LUXURIOUS HOUSE WITH SPA, GREAT FOR TWO COUPLES

Taos House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Nestled on a quiet tranquil tree lined street off of Kit Carson Road, Simpson House awaits you. The territorial style house sits behind a totally enclosed fence featuring an antique gate from India. Our well appointed and uniquely decorated home is your oasis in town yet just a walk around the corner to El Monte Sagrado Resort and a short stroll to the Plaza with Galleries and shopping along the way. All new high end furnishings are yours to enjoy. Custom details include architectural elements from around the globe, plaster walls, aspen ceilings, hardwood floors, quality art & rugs and premium bedding. Truly a four star experience, the down pillows, luxury linens, robes and custom toiletries will enhance your Taos experience. Relax on the covered front porch, grill and dine on the Patio ,and later soak in the the Spa on the deck.

The Taos night sky is indeed amazing! This romantic getaway features a wood burning fireplace, central heat and air conditioning and a well equipped gourmet kitchen. We love to travel in comfort and style and know you will appreciate this cozy retreat...

Why the Owner Chose Taos: We fell in love with the location of this property. The elms and cottonwoods tower over this little dead-end street that is just off of Kit Carson Road. It is quiet and the end of the street is actually all Pueblo Land up to the base of the sacred mountain. You can here the coyotes there at night. It is also convenient to El Monte Sagrado's famous Anaconda Bar and a short walk to the Plaza

The Unique Benefits of this House: We love morning and evening on the front porch watching the magpies that live in a tree about 50 feet away. We like the view of the mountain from the patio where we dine in the summer. In the winter we like the fireplace and the smell of pinon pine in the air. Most nights we are there, we soak in the spa with a night-cap and enjoy the marvelous night sky in Taos

INCREDIBLE STAY!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we pulled up to the beautiful blue door, we knew this was going to be extraordinary. The furnishings are beautiful and one of a kind. The bed was sooo comfortable with luxurious linens. The house itself is in an upscale, private neighborhood and is close to the great shopping and activities. Lance and Holly provided everything for our needs. They thought of everything! Five stars is truly not enough for this property. We hope to return next year!

LOVELY FURNISHINGS INSIDE THE HOME. VERY PEACEFUL.

  • 4 of 5
Located in an ideal neighborhood, very quiet and peaceful yet so incredibly close to everything you come to Taos for, within walking distance or a quick jaunt via vehicle to the main plaza. Absolutely lovely furnishings inside the home. The refrigerator wasn't very cool though. There were cobwebs that should have been cleaned before our arrival, very noticeable, especially when you walk in the front door. We also had our two goldens with. However, when we first arrived there was a dog within the yard already, perhaps a neighbors as it jumped the fence through a not so easy to see area by the hot tub, so we had to use the sleds that were there and propped them up as to not have the other dog in the yard. That was a bit scary. There were also hoses and other garden tools within the yard that we didn't expect. Perhaps they are just getting ready for spring gardening, but I would have expected a cleaner yard than what it was. I picked up a few things just to tidy up. Overall, if the yard was clean and the cobwebs removed, it would have been a five star experience. The bed was definitely five star quality and it was so quiet at night for sleeping, we didn't even realize when we got up early the morning to leave that it was a down pour of rain outside. That was great. I would definitely recommend this property if it were a bit cleaner (cobwebs and yard picked up). I can not comment on the hot tub as we did not use it.

Owner's Response: Wow Andy , I am appalled and mortified.. This is the first review that ever contained anything negative. I apologize profusely and will address these things immediately. I wish you had called me or the caretaker and we could have addressed these things during your stay. I will research the dog situation and install higher fencing if needed. The housekeeper is immaculate and usually returns just before your arrival to dust and do a final check. The yard is about to be readied but not for another week or so. It appears drab after winter but we can't replant the flowers until the first of May. We are mulching this weekend and hooking up the drip system. I am sorry there were yard tools in the way. As for the fridge, it will be addressed. We have never received less than a five star rating and this hurts. I am glad you enjoyed the house otherwise and hope you will return.

BELIEVE ALL OF THE GLOWING REVIEWS!

  • 5 of 5
It would be hard to add something new to the wonderful reviews that have been written about this beautiful home. We had such a wonderful time enjoying the thoughtful details that made this vacation delightful. The kitchen was well-stocked, the dishes and linens lovely, patio (and the entertaining magpie!) perfect in the early evening, and even the movie selection made this a home-away-from-home. We are so glad we chose to stay in this comfy home. Our friends from Maine were treated to a memorable introduction to Taos.

It was kind of you to comment on our movie selection....most we're filmed in or around Taos. We thank you for this fabulous review and hope you will return to stay with us again. Warmest Wishes, Lance and Holly

AN OASIS IN TAOS

  • 5 of 5
This property is an Oasis: private, quiet and with the most artful decor. Truly this is a five stare place to stay. The kitchen was so well appointed with beautiful dishes, spices and copper pots; everything you would need to really cook. We used the BBQ and it was very convenient. Every detail is provided for you to cook, sleep, relax and enjoy. The full moon was amazing from the very private hot tub right off the master bedroom. The beds are so comfortable and with highest quality linens. A pleasant walk to the plaza only took us about 15 minutes. Having the locking gate to the yard was perfect for having our dogs and feeling safe. A perfect art town getaway. We will be back for more. Oh and one more thing… we loved the Love Apple restaurant. ;-)

WE COULDN'T HAVE MADE A BETTER CHOICE.

We couldn't have made a better choice.
  • 5 of 5
The minute you walk in the gate you know you are in for a treat. It is a peaceful setting within walking distance to the heart of Taos Plaza. The remodeling is a superb mix of historic charm meets modern
convenience. The grounds are wonderful. The hot tub was a treat and the beds are so comfortable you
just have to sleep in late. We enjoyed coffee on the front porch every morning and wine in front of the fireplace at night.
Thank you so much! This is our new favorite place to stay in Taos.

GREAT EASTER WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
The first thing my husband and I said when entering the house was that the online photos don't do it justice! You instantly feel the warmth and charm of the house in the entry and it carries throughout the rest of the house. Very well appointed from the kitchen, baths, and books/DVDs, etc. We didn't have nearly enough time to enjoy all that was available, especially the nice patio areas which would be great for a BBQ or soak in the hot tub. Location was great - quick walk to the plaza, short drive to Taos Pueblo, and easy drive to the ski valley. We were just one family staying this time (two kids under 5 and our dog) and the size was perfect. We could also see how the layout is great for two couples - living space in between with two bedrooms on either side. Lance was very quick to respond and very available to help as needed. Would highly recommend when in the Taos area!
