The hummingbirds love to visit and we'll make certain to always leave plenty of feeders and sugar. The grounds are colorful, verdant and well-maintained. The views to the west will amaze with a clear shot of Georgia O'Keefe's beloved Pedernal Mountain. The smell of sweet sage will send you to sleep each night, rested and ready for your next adventure.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Casa Bonita is very aptly named. It was beautiful, with colorful art everywhere and a very nice floorplan with lots of famous New Mexico light coming from the skylights (thoughtfully, no skylights in the bedroom). The large bedroom was a dream, with a walk-in closet and separate areas for a desk and a seating area. The bed was luxurious, with quality bedding. I slept so well when I was there! I really loved the radiant floor heating coming from the saltillo tiles. The house was also super clean. Heather was very helpful and friendly and totally on top of the communication throughout the whole process, which I really appreciated. The house was very conveniently located, close to Taos but away from the hubbub, and super quiet. It was nice having our own private back patio; if the weather had been warmer I would have enjoyed hanging out there. Well, there is always next time. We loved Taos, and we will definitely be back.
