Overview

Taos House Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

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!! Pets are welcome with a pet fee.

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!

About Tammi Clancy

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.

Tammi Clancy purchased this house in 2007

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

2nd Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We can not say enough wonderful things about this Casita!!! If you want food, bring it, but otherwise this place has anything you need and more! You will not need pans or spices or utensils or coffee! It was a true treat not to need anything extra! The bed is amazing! It was so very comfortable and the linens were great!

The hot tub was superb and the views were too! My Husband and I sat in the wooden two seater chair that was on the patio. Give it a shot. It was so comfortable that we almost made an offer to buy it! My Husband decided to try an build one.

This Casita is a dream with a fireplace and amazing shower! Don't pass this one up! There are houses surrounding it but you will never even notice. You don't see them on the patio. The owners allow you to have your privacy and are wonderful to work with. We had an amazing and relaxing Anniversary here!

Wonderful stay in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We just had the great pleasure of spending a week in paradise in Casita Ava Maria in Taos. The place was everything we expected and more. We spent the majority of week staying in the casita. The hot tub and steam shower were awesome. I have never seen such beautiful stars and so many shooting stars at one time. The kitchen was great, fully stocked so we cooked many meals there. The washer and dryer was a great luxury to have on vacation:) The casita so very private and comfortable that I wish we could have stayed another week. Thank you Dave and Tami for sharing your beautiful place with some Texans!

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved the Casita. It has great views, is clean, well equipped and perfect for winding down in. Dave and Tammi were great. Loved the steam shower, hot tub and the outside fireplace. Easy access down to the Rio Grande through Arroyo Hondo. Short drive up to Taos Ski Valley. Loved the Mesa Brewing Company out on Highway 64 towards the Rio Grande Bridge. Nearby Arroyo Seco is really a sweet little village that we went to many days and access to Taos itself is easy, but you may never make it there unless you can tear yourself away from Casita Ave Maria's front patio!

Beautiful Casita Ave Maria!

  • 5 of 5

We, John & Kelli Allen, just arrived home after a wonderful 3 night stay in the Casita! It was more than we could have ever wished for... We spent every evening with a fire in the fireplace, and in awe of the beautiful views of what God had created. It is the perfect place for a getaway and to renew one's soul. My husband enjoyed the deck and the hot tub, and I the steam shower. This was my first time in the mountains and the location is perfect for scenic drives and access to Taos Ski Valley. The home is furnished with everything you need.. All you have to do is a Lille grocery shopping. Tammi & Dave are amazing hosts. Already looking to plan another trip, but have the time to stay longer. Thank you to the Clancey's for sharing your slice of heaven on earth.

Just a great place all around.

  • 5 of 5

Pretty much everything about this home is exactly what my girlfriend and I were looking for when we planned our short trip to Taos. It was very private, accessible, affordable, and just far enough away from town that it offered the exact seclusion we were looking for. These things are nice to have, but they still don't offer up enough description as to explain just how perfect we thought the Casita Ave Maria was for us. I'm a big fan of how this home was put together and the simple, perfect amenities it offered. From the incredible views of the valley and sunsets, the outdoor fireplace, steam shower, large comfortable bed, open living space, and all around in general coziness, this place was perfect for the two of us and we would both definitely recommend.

Now if I could just live down taking my inexperienced snow skiing girlfriend to Taos Ski Valley for her first ski trip... I might not ever hear the end of that :) Advice.... Stay here in this home, but make the short drive to Angel Fire for snow skiing if you have a beginner in the group :)
