SOARING SPLENDOR! STEAM SHOWER/HOT TUB IN/OUT FIRE W/WOOD-BLISS!

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.

SERENITY FOUND

  • 5 of 5
Finding this place to stay made my trip to Taos memorable. The casita is so charming. The views are amazing. The amenities are more than we could have dreamed; hit tub, outdoor fireplace, steam shower. You can feel stress melt away the moment you enter the casita. A stay here will not be regretted.

NICE GET AWAY

  • 4 of 5
Nice place to stay with great amenities. A little hard to find initially but the directions from the owners were great. There are houses very close by but set up in a way that you have privacy. Would definitely stay here again

ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Taos, and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay than Casita Ave Maria! Tammi and Dave are a fantastic couple, and they went out of their way to ensure that our stay was flawless, beginning to end. The first thing you notice upon arrival is the breathtaking view from the outdoor living area (you may not want to ever go indoors). The wrap-around deck area includes a bistro table that's perfect for that first cup of coffee in the morning, or a sunset cocktail. For the ultimate in relaxation, start a roaring fire in the fireplace, grab your favorite beverage, and jump in the hot tub!
The casita (if you ever go inside) was everything advertised, and more. It is warm and inviting, with an open floor plan that makes everything convenient and accessible. As stated in previous reviews, the property includes a fully equipped kitchen, WiFi, flat screen TV & DVD player, linens, towels - absolutely everything you need for an enjoyable stay (and, did I mention the fantastic views from the hot tub?). One of our favorite indoor amenities was the steam shower. Kudos to Dave for that addition.
The casita is an easy 10 minute drive into Taos. I would recommend getting your food items at either Cid's, or Albertson's in Taos, and avoiding the mini-mart at the foot of the hill. It had a very limited selection, but could be used in a pinch for some basic items.
Casita Ave Maria was the perfect place for a relaxing, peaceful visit. We could not have been happier with our decision to stay here. It is the ultimate location to decompress and enjoy life. We will be back in Taos, and this is the only place we'll stay!

SEEING TAOS WITH NEW EYES!!!

  • 5 of 5
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!

STOP LOOKING! THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT TO STAY!

  • 4 of 5
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.
