Great Rates for a luxury, fully-equipped home that works well for couples, families, and small adult groups. Do read the reviews from our previous guests, who have consistently given us 5-Stars for all aspects of their stay.
We are about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Taos and the historic Plaza, with its wonderful restaurants, innovative galleries, and antique shops.
Taos Ski Valley is an easy 30 minute drive, Sipapu 40 minutes, and Angel Fire about an hour away. Santa Fe is a little over an hour's drive.
This truly is a home-away-from-home, which has been carefully and tastefully furnished and equipped as our second home - we keep everything in excellent order. The style is traditional adobe beautifully integrated with Moroccan decor, which gives the interior a rich ambience. The feel is cosy and comfortable, with warm inviting colours, and furniture you can relax in. The 2-storey unit is self-contained: the end-unit of three adobe-style homes in a small private community.
If you love to cook, the kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, including a microwave, food processor & blender, coffee maker & grinder, electric kettle, toaster, as well as a complete set of baking dishes, utensils and chef tools. Basic groceries are kept newly stocked up, and quick meals are available if you arrive late.
The upstairs master suite and lounge is unusually spacious, with a King bed, full bathroom, 2nd satellite TV, DVD player, and a well-equipped office space with wireless DSL, printer, and office supplies.
The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed, and is right next to the second full bathroom. No stairs to climb!
Perfect for 2 couples to have their own space.
The upstairs walled deck looks over the community gardens and has a gas BBQ grill, dining table, chairs, and umbrella for the summer.
Guests have the use of the beautiful and serene gardens while staying with us.
There is a queen size sofa bed in the living room.
The property is approx. 1400 sq ft.
During the summer, the Rio Grande offers rafting and kayaking for all levels, and walkers can enjoy anything from a stroll around the pretty local neighborhoods, to day-long mountain hiking.

We love Taos, and have finally retired here after many years in Silicon Valley.
We originally come from the south of England, and particularly enjoy the colourful gardens in and around Taos, which remind us of home.
There is so much to do here, that we still have a list of 'must-sees' that's several pages long!
We love to entertain, so we make sure that our guests have everything they need (plus a few little luxury extras!).
We now enjoy creating art - from May through October be sure to visit us at our gallery in Penasco: Gaucho Blue Fine Art.
Lise and Nick purchased this house in 2003
This has been our second home since we bought it; we love staying here! The gardens around the condo are quiet and peaceful. It's the perfect location for us: we can stroll into town to look around the galleries, and walk home after a wonderful dinner at one of the local restaurants. It's a great base for exploring northern New Mexico, with so many historical and cultural sites an easy drive away. Santa Fe is just an hour's drive, so you can take advantage of Taos lodging rates while exploring Santa Fe.
Our condo is located in one of the most sought-after communities in Taos, and on one of the prettiest streets. The quiet gardens with the koi pond are perfect for sitting peacefully with a book, and maybe a glass of wine.
Inside the unit, there are two separate sitting areas, great for families or groups who would like a little private space to themselves. The upstairs office space is a quiet place to check in to work (if you must!) The private deck is our favourite place to have breakfast and watch the birds in the garden.
This was the best condo we've ever rented (and we travel a lot). The kids loved the pond with fish in the front of the condo, and we enjoied the big bedroom and the nice terrace upstairs.
I really appreciated the fully equiped kitchen, and all the nice utensils, silverware and plates. The condo is extremely nice decorated, very functional, and everything is well organized.
The owners were very friendly, and made us fell like home.
We're lookng forward to going back.
Overall great place to stay. Close to downtown in a nice quite neighborhood. House was well stocked and Lise and Nick are great host.
Lise and Nick where awesome to work with.
We've been going to towels for many years during Christmas break and I've stayed in a lot of places through Vrbo. This was by far the best one yet. It was my wife &I our two kids (21 & 18) my two nephews (both 18) and niece (14). We had plenty of room. Lise & Nick Honda place set up very neatly also had instructions for everything even the linen had separate containers showing where everything went you couldn't have asked for a better organized place to stay with plenty of room and comfort I definitely recommend this place to stay at while you're there I also want to thank you so much for letting us stay there and we plan to say there in the future.

I have rented many, many vacation homes in the US and throughout Europe, and this was, by far, the most well equipped one ever. Lise and Nick provided a beautiful home in an ideal location and saw to every detail to make sure our stay was perfect. We hope we can make it back to their home in Taos again next year!
Lise was a lovely host and offered dining out ideas. The home was very clean and well supplied. We were traveling with my 95 years young mother and it worked out well for her to have the main floor bedroom and bathroom and she loved the radiant heat. The patio off the upstairs bedroom would be wonderful in warmer weather. It is a very quiet area and yet is close to the Plaza. We would certainly rent again next time we are in Taos. LaVerne
We stayed here for 4 days three years ago when we brought our Spanish visitor from Our home in Texas to New Mexico and it was perfect.. great location, beautiful home, plenty of room and privacy, and such nice welcoming arrangements by Lise and Nick ( fully stocked kitchen, welcome package of wine and snacks even). Just stayed again last week with two more friends from Spain, and again it was perfect! Can't recommend this highly enough.. it is such a perfect home away from home in beautiful Taos!
