Overview

Taos House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

Set in a dramatic location that encompasses views of the town of Taos, spectacular sunsets, and majestic Taos Mountain, Casa Sienna is the ideal location for your stay in Taos. Located in the desirable Blueberry Hill area, the beauty and peacefulness of its surroundings are unmatched - and the close proximity to Taos Ski Valley and the galleries and restaurants of Taos make its location the best of both worlds.

But the views are merely the beginning. The home of a set decorator in the movie industry, Casa Sienna has been lovingly furnished with extensive southwestern touches: hand-carved doors, Native American crafts, and many other artistic details. Recent trips to Southeast Asia and Latin America have yielded a treasure trove of beautiful folk art. The warmth and eclectic charm of Taos are present in Casa Sienna from the first moment you walk in the front door. A warning - you will not want to leave!

Entertaining? A well-equipped gourmet kitchen and service for 20 make preparing meals a breeze. And an outdoor dining table provides an exquisite al fresco setting.

Need to relax after a day of skiing or visiting the galleries? The large hot tub with its drop-dead gorgeous view of Taos Mountain is the perfect spot to unwind.

Two living rooms - each with its own fireplace - provide ample room for reading or relaxing. There are two bedrooms upstairs -- each with a queen-sized bed -- and three bedrooms downstairs (two have queen-sized beds and one has a full-sized bed). A daybed and a rollaway bed (at additional charge) provide flexible sleeping arrangements.

Casa Sienna has it all: a beautiful location, close proximity to skiing and downtown, and a style that is uniquely Taos. It will more than meet your expectations!

About Greg Courter

I am fortunate to split my time between Casa Sienna and my farm in Costa Rica (Finca Sienna, www.vrbo.com/578922). (Sienna is the name of my daughter). Extensive international travel has allowed me to collect the artwork that adorns both properties, and I am a firm believer in the concept of refuge -- spending time in an environment that promotes relaxation, contemplation, and reconnection with one's self and loved ones. It is a joy for me to share my homes with like-minded guests.

Greg Courter purchased this house in 1993

A great way to inhabit vs visit Taos

  • 5 of 5
I won't repeat many of the great things other reviewers have said -- all of which are true about the house and its amenities. I just spent one week here with a couple of friends and we loved every square inch of this place. I particularly appreciated being outside of Taos proper. The quiet here is not to be believed, and you need only spend one evening out in the hammock star gazing and you'll be hooked! I'm so glad we chose this home and thank you for all of the comforts it offered. This place is a gem! The owner is very responsive, and I appreciated our communication pre-arrival. You'll wish this place was yours....

Perfect Taos rental

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Greg!
My husband and I (plus our two dogs) very much enjoyed our stay for 3 nights over Labor Day weekend. So many of the rentals in Taos were booked that we had to rent a place that was way too large for the 2 of us, but I am so happy that we did! And after staying here, I was amazed that it was still available on short notice. The secret hasn't gotten out apparently about what a perfect rental this is.
We have used VRBO many times for our vacation rentals, and we both agreed this rental was in our top three favorite rentals... if not the very best.
The pictures don't even come close to doing justice to how great the house is.
Everything you will need for your stay is included in the rental. Usually in most rentals, there is something missing - a wine opener, extra toilet paper, etc. But not here - EVERYTHING is included: plenty of cozy bedding, well-stocked bathrooms, lots of books and games, and two very nice entertainment/living areas with DirectTV and great speakers to listen to music while sitting out in the hot tub. The kitchen is very well-stocked with everything you would need to cook a meal, make coffee, etc. These things, along with 360 views outside, a big hot tub, plenty of outdoor furniture, and a hammock made this the perfect rental. We loved the artwork and personal touches throughout the house and we felt very comfortable and happy with our stay.
The location is great. We preferred this location as opposed to on the 'main drag' (around the Plaza). It's more on the outskirts of town, yet still very close to town.
We had a great time visiting the Taos Ski Valley and hiking in that area especially.
The Stray Dog Cantina at the Taos Ski Valley was delicious for lunch, and we really enjoyed the Taos Mesa Brewery - the views, music, and atmosphere were awesome. Both of these places allow leashed dogs on their patios - an added bonus. All of Taos, plus surrounding areas all seemed very pet-friendly... so nice. We never did make it to Michael's Kitchen for a meal, but did stop in for pastries before driving to the ski valley and the pastries were yummmmmmy. The line for breakfast was all the way out the front door and wrapped around the building, so I'm sure it's amazing too.
We will always remember this rental and look forward to visiting again in the future.
Highly Recommended!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
This house is amazing and was the perfect choice for my family! Its' remote enough to hear coyotes at night yet close enough to town to run to the store! There were 6 adults and 2 kiddos and we all had our own space. My granddaughter truly enjoyed her "nature walks" and my grandson LOVED the hot tub! Game night, great dinners and a beautiful surrounding made this a fabulous vacation!

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful home and property. Exactly as described. Great views. Hot tub was awesome. Well stocked kitchen complete with coffee and spices. Close to shopping and sight seeing. Cannot think of a bad thing to say except I wish we could have stayed longer. We plan to go back next year!

Greg is probably one of only a handful of exceptional hosts! We happened to arrive a tiny bit early and got to visit with him. He took time to give us a tour of his beautiful home that included some history on the art work he collects and that he has on display in the home. He is very accommodating and provided us with many more amenities than listed at no extra cost. The hot tub was the highlight of our stay in the home and became the focal point of relaxation for us. (The extremely high winds in the area during our stay made it unpleasant to spend too much time enjoying walks around the plaza). He also provided pamphlets of information regarding everything there is to do and learn about while in Toas. I will definitely have to go back and enjoy a lot more of the cultural offerings such as museums and restaurants..there are just too many to visit in a few short days. Thanks again for allowing us to stay at Casa Sienna and we hope to go back soon!
