About The Owner

Nature, music & arts lover inspired by the endless joy & balance they bring. Casa de Luz is my Taos home offered for your own private retreat in this magical place known as 'The Land of Enchantment.'

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Taos

Taos & its surrounding area known as 'the Enchanted Circle' offer so many gifts -- arts, entertainment, Southwestern cuisine, multi-cultural events, historic sites, Pueblo dances, a casino & of course, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, fishing, whitewater rafting, kayaking & much more.

What makes this house unique

A beautiful location with a beautiful home and unobstructed views of Wheeler Peak & Taos Pueblo's sacred Taos Mountain. The Town of Taos has traffic noise & limited mountain views & star-gazing. Casa de Luz is only a short drive to Taos Plaza yet offers quietude, mountain views with incredible sunrises, sunsets & night sky stargazing from your own private hot tub with nearby dining, entertainment & outdoor activities -- Taos Ski Valley, hiking & trout fishing. Casa de Luz a private retreat from the hustle/bustle of urban life or for anyone looking for personal space.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time! We love that this house is away from the Plaza and quiet! We loved the house, decor, light, and views. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Beautiful Stay

  • 5 of 5
This was my second time (in just a few short months) at Casa de Luz. Sharon, the owner, provided a wonderful experience from the time I inquired about the vacation rental through my entire stay. She is warm, friendly and so helpful. The house is a perfect home base and has a special feeling from the moment you enter (you will learn about the concept of Hozho from the guest binder!).

The house is super cute and has everything we could want was there for us to use. We cooked almost every meal for four days and found every dish and pan we needed. We enjoyed the satellite TV and whole-house sound system. The bedrooms are cozy places for relaxing and the bathrooms are decorated with Talavera tiles as a consistent reminder of "place" and are well-appointed (complete with shampoo, conditioner and body wash, and plenty of towels). The house was so clean and there was a little treat around every corner - literally - Hershey Kisses!

Both in September and during this January trip, we made good use of the hot tub (located under an awning away from the intense sun). The fenced-in yards provide privacy and a sense of peace. During the summer, hummingbirds and other songbirds buzz around the yards. And not to disappoint, magpies and other birds kept us well entertained during our winter visit. At night, the sky is dark and the stars are aplenty - keep your eye out for the Milky Way!

The house is located just outside Taos - the perfect distance away from town yet close enough to run into town for groceries, restaurants and sightseeing in the area. There is no shortage of things to see in the Taos area. And, Sharon provided a thorough and extremely helpful document about restaurants, sightseeing and shopping around Taos. She's amazing!

I cannot think of any downsides to staying at Casa de Luz. It feels like a home away from home. I will be back!

A Gem!

  • 5 of 5
Casa de Luz is a very special place, immaculately clean, well maintained, very comfortable, and beautifully managed. The large fenced yard is a haven for dogs, and the hot tub a haven for their people. The active birds in the yard and the lovely views are additional pluses. I have rented many VRBO homes in various states, and this house is by far the most well run I have encountered.. Sharon, the owner, offers extensive written information about the area, has anticipated every possible need and desire of a guest, and goes out of her way to make her guests happy. I spent a week at Casa de Luz with my dog and felt sad to leave. I highly recommend this charming rental!

Fabulous Casita in Taos

  • 5 of 5
My husband, I and our dog Maggie, spent 3 glorious nights at Casa De Luz. The owner, Sharon, bent over backwards to communicate with us before we arrived about our needs and more importantly about what all Taos has to offer - from restaurants to sightseeing. The home was immaculate, comfortable, and had everything you need. The back yard is fenced, and perfect for dogs - and, the wildlife with the bird feeders etc, is great to watch. Thanks to Sharon for making our vacation great. !! OH... and did I mention the great views and the hot tub?

Perfect relaxation

  • 5 of 5
We had a truly wonderful stay. To start, you can tell that the owner put a lot of care into the home & preparation of info for travelers. Personal touches leading up to the trip & upon arrival were uniquely thoughtful. The house has such a beautiful view, is well maintained & stocked of amenities. The fenced in yards are great for both dog & small children to play. It was fun to also watch all of the birds that visit the back yard. We enjoyed the hot tub too!

Location was great for us to get out & explore but also have privacy. I'd definitely recommend this rental.

Beautiful home -- perfect isolation but close to everything

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent President's Day weekend (and Valentine's Day) at this clean, modest but absolutely beautiful home in Taos. It is perfectly situated just outside of town -- but a few minutes drive to restaurants downtown and a short drive to Taos Ski Valley where we skiied a few days during our stay. We also enjoyed moutain views from the private hot tub on the back patio. Our trip was a long weekend escape from parenting 2 small kids, but this would be a great spot for a small family or two couples looking for a private, relaxing outpost in Taos. Sharon, the owner, was cheerful and polite in helping us book the place, and eveything was in perfect order when we arrived, including nice touches like a bottle of wine, chocolates, and coffee and filters ready to pop in the machine each morning. Sharon also provided a helpful and exhaustive list of restuarants and attractions in Taos which she apparently updates regularly.
