Guestbook comments from the manager
Sept 2007 – What a great place to stay! This casita was beyond our expectations. Well furnished, clean, comfortable & beautiful. We spent a lot of time shopping in the Taos Plaza. The Taos Pueblo was incredible and we spent a day at Ojo Caliente Mineral & Hot Springs. Thank you so much for providing such a great place to enjoy our vacation. (Frank & Linda from Middletown, CT)

Good Things come in Small Packages

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent three nights in this perfect little condo. It was spacious and bright, with a lovely living area, easy to work in kitchen, large bathroom, and comfortable bedroom. In fact, all the spaces seemed larger than possible for a condo of that overall size. Parking was convenient, just meters away from the front door. The area was quiet and peaceful while being only minutes away from the Taos Plaza. The unit completely lived up to expectations from the listing description and photos, it was clean and well maintained, and we would recommend it to anyone. Excellent value for money.

First Taos visit

  • 4 of 5
Clean and within walking distance of the plaza. Perfect size for a couple on a getaway weekend. Take a ride up to the taos ski resort and to the Taos pueblos. Go to Taos Inn for nightly music starting at 6:00. Taos Inn is within walking distance of the casita as well. The lighting in the casita was dim, but after visiting the pueblos figured this was replicating ambiance lifestyle. I would return to this casita on our next visit.

Feels like home

This is the second time we have stayed in this property and again not disappointed. The convenience of location, the quiet and layout of the condo itself can't be beat. The owners are very nice and accommodating. Will continue to stay in their properties.

Lovely Place

  • 4 of 5
The casita was very nice indeed, and we would go there again any time. It was comfortable, well-appointed, and well situated for the center of town, being just far enough to avoid being too busy.
Everything was as described pretty much, although I do have to mention a couple of small things:

- The lights in the kitchen area were very dim, and some were not working. This is just a case of changing some bulbs, and should really have been checked before our stay. No biggie tho, and I did tell the managers.

- The internet was not accurately described in the instruction sheet. The network had a different name to the one described, although it was not too hard to find the correct one by a quick process of trial and error. The sheet also mentioned the router unit being behind the microwave in the kitchen, but this was not the case. I did search for it, but it is not anywhere easily found! Luckily it all worked well once we found the right network, and it was all good. Some might not be so lucky.

Please do not get the idea that these things detracted from the quality of our stay. I would highly recommend this place to anyone thinking of staying in Taos.

Perfect Location -- Walk to the Plaza/Quiet at Night

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I went to Taos for a weekend getaway without our young children. I wanted to stay within walking distance to the Plaza, but didn't want to be in the middle of the action when it was time to sleep.

This condo fit the bill perfectly. It is a nice 10 minute walk to the heart of Taos, yet feels miles away when you want to get away from it all. It was a quiet place to stay despite being so close to the condo neighbors.

The condo is also beautifully, tastefully decorated--pure Taos. Comfortable furniture, local art, and luxurious bedding. I hadn't slept so well in ages. It was also spic and span.

I planned to cook more often during our stay, but after our first dinner out, we decided that would be a waste of good, New Mexican restaurants! We did enjoy a lazy morning with breakfast at the condo one day. The kitchen was pretty well equipped, but had no staples including salt and pepper, so just be sure to bring your own.

Another plus was the keyless entry. We didn't have to worry about meeting anyone to get the keys nor did my husband have to pack a key for his run. Checkout was as simple as locking the door.

We only watched a litle TV, but there were plenty of options. We never needed Internet, but it was nice to know it was available.

We very much enjoyed our stay in Taos and this condo was a big plus. I can't wait to get back and will book this unit again.
