BELLA VILLA: IN TOWN, ELEGANT AND SPACIOUS SOUTH-WEST CHARM

Taos House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Bella Villa is a tranquil oasis in the heart of the town of Taos. The plaza, art galleries, shops, restaurants and groceries are a short 10 minute walk away along beautiful tree-lined Burch Street and gallery-filled Kit Carson Road. You have the privacy of a large walled and beautifully landscaped yard with hot tub, and a 2000 sq ft tastefully decorated adobe-style house in which to relax and enjoy your vacation. Double patio doors open from the living room onto the covered portico and xeriscaped backyard. Large windows bring in the light and all are equipped with blinds to block the heat of summer when needed. The perfect hammock for an afternoon siesta swings in the perfume of Russian sage in a shady spot at the edge of the back portico.

Every room is comfortably furnished in south-west style with interesting and dramatic art to catch your eye no matter where you look. The open concept living/dining/kitchen area is a natural and gracious space for your family and friends to be together, with a gas fireplace for cozy comfort in the winter and double french doors to the back yard for breezy air in the summer. The bar counter and stools overlooking the kitchen ensure the chef(s) can have company while cooking for a crowd.

The spacious bedrooms each have their own unique furnishings and motifs. There are quality linens on the comfortable beds, and both bathrooms have colourful Mexican ceramic tiles and sinks. The master bedroom is particularly large with its own TV/DVD, walk-in closet and private bathroom with double Mexican sinks, separate shower, jacuzzi jet tub, and separate toilet area. The two queen bedrooms both open directly to the covered outdoor porticos.

The kitchen has room enough for lots of help with cooking, and is stocked with everything you need to make a simple breakfast or prepare a gourmet meal. All the basics in terms of seasonings, herbs and spices, utensils and pots and pans are provided ... and more. The eating nook off the kitchen is a perfect place for breakfast or a quick bite while watching the birds at the feeder The large and extendable table in the separate dining room seats six to ten, and is provided with all the place mats, cloth napkins and candles needed for elegant dining.

Bella Villa is relatively new to VRBO but has been on the vacation rental market since 2007. Two examples of the many positive reviews it has received from past renters follow:

'Perfect Taos house. This house is the one you'd want to own if you lived here. Very well equipped for a week's stay, located in the lush tree part of town, walkable to everything, wonderful linens, art, garden, privacy, and a great manager who responds to your needs the same day. We will always rent this house when we travel with friends.'

'We are sad to leave this beautiful oasis! It exceeded our expectations in every way. Bella Villa is an exceptional home with every conceivable amenity at hand. We loved all the varied art forms, the patio, hot tub, and great location. It is extremely clean and inviting and comfortable. We would love to return in the future.'

We live in Ottawa, Canada and travel extensively around the world, particularly cycle touring. Since buying our house in Taos we have taken full advantage of the excellent skiing at Taos Ski Valley as well as the many cycling, mountain-biking and hiking possibilities in the area. We never tire of exploring the local galleries, taking in the live music, or dining out in one of the many excellent restaurants Taos has to offer. No matter how much we travel elsewhere in the world, Taos never ceases to delight us and draw us back.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2007

Taos captured our hearts from the moment we saw it. We had intended to spent only one night there while passing through on a continental driving holiday. But much to our surprise and delight, we ended up being home owners within 4 months of our first day in town. The beauty and drama of the landscape continues to take our breath away -- what can beat that panoramic view of the Rio Grande gorge as you top the hill coming up from Santa Fe? What is more beautiful than the snowcapped mountains soaring behind the town? Perhaps only the dramatic sunsets are better. Taos is simply so much fun to be in with something for everyone no matter the season or the weather. There are festivals, special events, live music and more to take in, to say nothing of the many excellent restaurants. It is a very special and unique place in the world.

Bella Villa is close to everything. For the active traveller, there is wonderful cycling from the front door (many maps provided), hiking just minutes away, and an easy 30 minutes drive to the ski valley. For those who want to take in the artistic and musical sides of Taos, there are many galleries, museums, restaurants and bars just around the corner. The pueblo is a five minute drive away and short excursions can take you to Santa Fe, Abiquiu, Ojo Caliente, Los Alamos, Bandolier National Monument and much more. Or just relax. We love to soak in the hot tub in our back yard, looking at the star-filled sky, the huge cottonwoods and elms, and the mountains peaking through on the horizon, enjoying the remarkable peace and quiet even though we are just minutes from town.

PURE COMFORT

  • 5 of 5
We loved this home! The attention to detail in terms of comfort and convenience were such a wonderful surprise and greatly appreciated. The home is so comfortable and so close to town. The lay out was perfect, and everyone loved sitting in the hot tub and looking at the beautiful trees. We didn't want to leave!

BELLA VILLA, TAOS NM

Our family had a lovely get together in Taos, NM. There were 8 of us, 6 adults and 2 small children. Bella Villa was like a home away from home. We all enjoyed our stay. Lovely home. Well kept, well located. Will definitely stay there again if we meet back in Taos.

EXCELLENT PLACE TO STAY IN TAOS

  • 5 of 5
We (3 couples) wanted a place to stay in Taos that was close to the square and was nicer than a motel. With only those simple requirements, when we walked into Bella Villa we were stunned. Not only is it close to the square but it is probably one of the most beautiful and well furnished vacation homes we have ever seen. The art and the furnishings are outstanding and the hot tube and the back patio fire pit just add to the wonderful ambiance of this home.Before we left two couples had asked where we could get architectural plans for the home and we all said that we wished we could hire the owner to decorate our own homes. No, I don't know or work for the owner, but we all agreed that we plan to make a visit to Bella Villa a regular annual event for our group. We don't think you can beat it in Taos.

GREAT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
The listing description, the location, and the listing photos were very accurate. The property was clean and well-maintained. The caretaker was extremely helpful. We three women found wonderful restaurants, museums, shopping and hikes. There is a great Visitor Center, a Ranger Station, and a Bureau of Land Management very close to Bella Villa. The house has so many amenities including a nice little library. Our stay couldn't have been better and we would highly recommend the house.
