Taos House Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-3)

Casita Ave Maria is a 900-square foot, OPEN designed casita that was created and built by the Clancys.

Casita Ave Maria showcases a radiused-front wall that opens up the floor space and makes the large kiva fireplace a focal point. David Clancy sculpted the incredible kiva and colored it with the perfect hue to offset it on the adobe-colored plaster that adorns all the walls. Natural wood cabinets shaped and built by David, knotty pine doors and tongue and groove ceilings wrap their warmth around you as you sit in this spiritual space and gaze out the Southern windows at the canyon, the Southwestern windows at the valley below and amazing sun sets or the mountains from the Eastern patio.

The original design of this casita boasts a HUGE patio on the Southern side, a serpentine-pavered patio edged with decorative block piers with lighting insets. The Southwestern side hosts a large patio which can be accessed out the bedroom door. A 6-person hot tub and grande, outdoor fireplace await your arrival on this side and you can sit in the hot tub and marvel at the valley and canyon views, watch the sun rise and set, or count the shooting stars at night.

Talavera-tile adorns the kitchen cupboards and kitchen island. Brick-pavered flooring with RADIANT FLOOR HEATING warm every step you take in this precious space. All NEW, stainless steel appliances await your use. Large, stackable washer and dryer is in its own closet.

The bedroom area is in the OPEN area of the entire casita but tucked away in the SouthWest side of the open space.

A door to the SouthWest patio is off of the bedroom area making quick visits to and from the hot tub or the outdoor fireplace delightfully easy!!

Spirit-soothing STEAM shower is stunningly slate-tiled with a glass door that encloses you in what we call the ''Enchanted Cave'' shower. Steam and dream away!

Starting supplies of wood are supplied for your use in both the indoor and outdoor fireplaces, basic start-ups of some spices, laundry and dish soap and paper products are supplied for your pleasure.

Everyone loves Casita Ave Maria! You will, too!

Welcome to Casita AveMaria in Taos! We, the Clancys, purchased our vacation/future retirement home property in 2007. We had often visited Taos and enjoyed our short stays. It was during the filming of a short, indie-film for a friend, with Taos as the location, that Tammi declared she wanted to retire in Taos. The Taos magic blessed that statement. We have had the most amazing guests and they have all added to the charm of our home.

The Land of Enchantment, truly, enough said. One has to experience it to know that it IS.

Seeing Taos with New Eyes!!!

  • Submitted: Apr 12, 2014

I have spent 15 years in the Taos area, but after time spent in the Ave Maria Casita, I was able to see Taos with new eyes. The casita is luxurious, can't say enough about the steam shower and the hot tub with amazing views. The design of the casita makes it so comfortable. The small space makes everything easy and accessible with an open floor plan, but each section (living area, bedroom area, and kitchen) all feel like separate spaces. The location is great, just removed enough for amazing views and still close enough to town for easy access. There is a wonderful sense of privacy, so all the beautiful windows can stay open for the vista. It is a great retreat space for fun, rest, and rejuvenation, with all amenities and lots of peace-inducing decor. Tammi and Dave are wonderful people!

We recently stayed at the Casita and had a wonderful stay. The hot tub and steam shower were incredibly relaxing and I would go back again in a heartbeat. It is a little out of town but we enjoyed the clear night sky. The Casita has absolutely everything you'll need (minus food and clothes) and has several personal touches you will enjoy. The owners were wonderful and even left a nice bottle of wine for us. I will definitely stay again soon.

We greatly enjoyed our time here. The house is wonderful and a great romantic getaway. I travel a lot so I place a lot of value on how easy the experience is. I have to say this was flawless. Great communication, I was provided clear instructions on all things within the house as well list of restaurants, grocery stores, etc. I must say both a fantastic home and experience.

Beautiful Casita and Beautiful Views!

We stayed in the Casita Ave Maria for a week just before Christmas and enjoyed every minute of it. The casita itself is lovely and has everything one could need, along with many lovely works of art and personal touches that make it feel more like a home than a rental. We have been visiting this area for the past 30+ years, and this location, although a bit removed from Taos proper, has always been one of our favorites because of the setting, so we are thrilled that we can stay in such a comfortable home surrounded by scenic beauty. And the charming village of Arroyo Seco is nearby. We will be returning in a couple of weeks.

What a beautiful view from the patio! Also in the evening you can relax in the hot tub under a blanket of stars. A great place to relax and get back to nature to renew your spirit.
