Overview

Taos House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6 & Hot Tub On Acreage

Our Casa de Suenos (House of Dreams) is an adobe style home situated on the high mesa at the North edge of Taos with spectacular views of the Taos mountains and sunsets. With 1,650 square feet of living space it can comfortably accommodate up to 6 people and is eclectically and tastefully decorated. The two bedroom suites, which are at separate ends of the house, have new queen and king beds with plush new linens and towels. The master bath has a jacuzzi and walk in shower as well as a full bathroom next to the guest room suite. We have a futon and a new hide a bed with memory foam in the living room. And a brand new hot tub sits just outside in a private area. Our kitchen is fully equipped with newly purchased cookware, a gas stove and cook top, a full refrigerator with filtered water and an ice-maker and a large gas grill outside the door on the patio to cook while you're enjoying the mountain views. A beautiful kiva fireplace warms the living room with plenty of seating to enjoy from three plush couches as well as a large fire pit outdoors with ample pinyon wood for both. Our home is artist owned with original colorful Southwest paintings in all the rooms and many cultural touches from our world travels. Additional amenities include a 42' satellite HDTV, DVD library and player, wifi internet access, iPod docking player and a full stereo system, new hot tub, new washer/dryer with laundry soap provided, iron and ironing board, toaster, micro-wave, coffee pot, porta crib and jacuzzi tub and private shower in the master bath.

As much as we enjoy the home, we love the peace and quiet of the open spaces that surround us. And you may not have really seen stars and the Milky Way until you have spent an evening as our guests. The sage covered mesa has an old road, immediately accessible from our acreage, which invites cycling, jogging or walking all the way to the Rio Grande Gorge if you like, with views of the mountains around Taos, the Jemez Mountains far to the southwest near Los Alamos and the far western horizon.

We visit our Taos home on a regular basis and as a result, it is very well maintained. We are always thinking about what upgrades we need to make - for us as well as you. We also provide complimentary cleaning service at the end of your stay but you may make arrangements for additional house keeping services by contacting our agent Wendy at Taos Getaways.

About The Owner

We are living full time in Colorado but, having fallen in love with Taos and the environs of northern New Mexico, we decided to build a home here in 2007. We both love outdoor activities such as hiking the mountains and deserts, camping and visiting art galleries from here to Santa Fe.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Taos

We discovered Taos while on a desert and canyon road trip 20 years ago. The area was instantly magical and magnetic for us and we chose the Mesa north of town for the wonderful solitude, the views of the Sacred Mountain of the Taos Pueblo and the huge sky which offers wonders day and night.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house has truly been a dream come true for us. Being our first trip to Taos and not knowing what to expect, everything has exceeded what we could've imagined. Thank you for having such a beautiful place to come home to each evening.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was everything we expected. We felt right at home the moment we walked in. It is SO MUCH PRETTIER than the photos allow! Could not have asked for more. Owner's agent was great to work with and very friendly and accommodating. Wonderfully relaxing stay.

House of Dreams

  • 5 of 5

Truly a sacred and beautiful experience in The House of Dreams. As two young families meeting halfway in one of the most beautiful towns in the country we couldn't have asked for anything else! This home is so welcoming and accommodating. We plan to return to create some more beautiful,everlasting memories. P.S. The art wasn't so bad either.

New Mexico hacienda.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa was perfect. It was clean beyond belief and stocked with absolutely everything one could possibly need. I had always dreamed of staying in a New Mexico hacienda and now that dream has been fulfilled. It is decorated with the most tasteful decor much of which was personal artwork by a renown artist, one of our hosts. Equally as beautiful as the oil paintings were the photographs. Everything else was in keeping with a New Mexico theme but not overdone. We enjoyed the fire pit and the hot tub. The kitchen was fabulous and easy to use. The beds were more than comfortable. Clean, clean, clean! We sat outside in the courtyard in the front and outside in the back watching hummingbirds most of the time. Flowers were everywhere on their property which only added to the unique New Mexico landscape. It was so very quiet. We only heard the occasional bird. We really never wanted to watch TV or be distracted from the sheer beauty. We felt welcome and not at all like we were intruding on someone's home. We were home. We hated to leave each day but there was so much to see and do in the area. Don't miss the ride on the Cumbres Toltec train, a high point in our vacation. In short, too late, a wonderful vacation which we hated to see end.

Peaceful Taos Escape

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I recently stayed at this magnificent Taos home, and thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay. This home is incredibly cozy, artistic, zen and comfortable. Not only is the interior colorful, warm and aesthetically perfect (with lovely art and decor), but the outside patio and courtyard area is relaxing and wonderfully landscaped. Very " New Mexico".

We spent our few days in Taos touring the Pueblo, the town galleries (where the Casa de Suenos owner and artist hangs her work), and also ventured out to Ojo Caliente for a soak in the hot springs. Each evening we would return to Casa de Suenos to sit out by the fire pit and sip wine while listening to music and enjoying the incredible view. This house also has a wonderfully private hot tub where you can enjoy the serenity of the New Mexico night sky.

I wouldn't think to stay anywhere else in Taos. We wanted a relaxing escape where we could enjoy the sites and activities of Taos, and that is exactly what we got- and much more!

Great Family Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and peaceful time at Casa de Suenos. I wish we had stayed longer. The home has everything you need, is impeccably decorated and provides the privacy we enjoy on vacation. The house is very clean and seems newly constructed and well maintained. From the front there is an excellent view of the mountains. Good location for access to Taos, Taos Ski Valley and the Rio Grande Gorge.

Casa De Suenos

  • 5 of 5

The only complaint that I would have is that the out door grill was not working which was a shame because we had brought meals to grill. Other than that, the property was excellent, well kept, clean, and well stocked. I would suggest that you provide additional floor fans for air circulation because the thermostat (locked) was not set cool enough. I believe everyone in my group would agree that we will be back !!! Thank you so much !

Owner's Response: Thank you for reviewing our property. We are so sorry about the grill. Our manager Wendy has seen to it that its working properly now but we do apologize for the inconvenience it caused. I think you will find it works great at your next visit. We will also add additional floor fans. Thank you for the suggestion and for the nice review.

Taos, New Mexico grew up in the vicinity of the thousand year old Taos Pueblo, a World Heritage site which is still occupied. At various times of the year, it is the setting for ancient dances, little changed since long before Europeans ever set foot here. The public is welcome at many of these demonstrations of lasting Native American tradition.

The town has been a mecca for artists for well over one hundred years and the town to this day is filled with an array of fine art galleries featuring works of every medium. Joining these artists through the years have been a parade of authors including D.H. Lawrence, New York bohemians such as Mabel Dodge Luhan and actors. Dennis Hopper was a prominent local celebrity after having discovered Taos when making the classic 'Easy Rider'. There are multiple music venues in town with entertainment every night of the week somewhere and wonderful restaurants from which to choose.

Our house sits on the mesa just east of the thousand foot deep Rio Grande Gorge (with the Rio Grande here having been designated a Wild and Scenic River in 1968). In March, 2013, this became an integral part of the county's newest national monument, called the Rio Grande Del Norte. It is nearly a quarter of a million acres and according to the recent proclamation, was meant to protect the sweeping and austere expanse of the Taos Plateau, extinct volcanoes including Ute Mountain, San Antonio Mountain and Cerro de la Olla, and the landscape as a “testament to the geologic past of New Mexico and the 70-million-year tectonic history of the Río Grande Rift.” Check out this great link regarding the magic of the Rio Grande country being protected at http://blog.nwf.org/2013/03/a-shining-jewel-el-rio-grande-del-norte-national-monument/.

We are also just west of Arroyo Seco, the gateway to the canyon which takes you to the Taos Ski Valley, less than 30 minutes away. The road to Santa Fe is either by the main highway - or the more historic High Road, which begins near the famous church south of town at Ranchos de Taos and goes south to the village of Chimayo, featuring the famous 200 hundred year old destination for Easter pilgrimages, Santuario de Chimayo. Along the way are many small mountain villages, including Truchas where Robert Redford filmed the wonderful (and instructive) movie, 'The Milagro Beanfield War' and Trampas with its adobe church dating to 1760. West from the Rio Grande Gorge is the famous hot springs and spa known as Ojo Caliente and not far past that is Abiquiu and the 'Ghost Ranch' where Georgia O'Keefe lived out so much of her professional career and life.

Taos has much to offer the visitor, from fishing, whitewater rafting and hiking to gallery walks, fine restaurants and music. And its a place to slow down and feel the pulse of history and traditions while enjoying the beauty of what truly is the 'Land of Enchantment'.
