Your Dream Taos vacation- Relax and enjoy the Sun!: Our home is located on a three acre cul de sac between Hole 9 and 10 in the exclusive gated community of Taos Country Club. Each room in the house was designed and orientated to provide a unique vantage point to truly appreciate the best of Taos's unique landscape. The great room facing Taos Ski Valley was designed for entertainment in mind, family and friends will enjoy the 20 foot ceilings and extra large glass windows to take in the amazing views. Picture yourself starting your day gazing out over the rising sun or relaxing in the evening with a nice glass of wine as you rest by the fireplace taking it all in. The fully fitted kitchen will meet the standards of even the most discerning master chefs as we truly enjoy putting our culinary skills to practice.

Please contact us direct for more photos, we have too many to post, but it is simply breath taking scenery.

Granite counter tops are featured throughout the house and the kitchen is no exception. It is fully loaded with the top of the line GE Profile appliances offering the best in contemporary design matched with the latest kitchen technologies. Every appliance displays a sleek, cosmopolitan and modern look that matches your every last taste in the kitchen and home.

An absolutely gorgeous setting.

  • 5 of 5

This house is really unique, the architecture is one of a kind. Great lay out for families or couples. Loved the big table in the great room for games and puzzles as well as meals. Kitchen super easy to use, and well stocked. Lacked for nothing. Bedrooms provided much privacy, and plenty of bathrooms meant no waiting in the morning. Lots of room for adults and teens to spread out in. It is little bit isolated or out of the way but we liked being out of the commotion and crowds of Taos itself. Easy day trips across the not-to-be missed Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, and on to Ojo Caliente. Taos Peublo and even Santa Fe are great day trips as well. We did not have enough time to for all that we wanted to do, so we plan to go back, and yes we would stay at this lovely house again. The owners were just great, we had a glitch with the caretaker but they reached out to address it right away, and we highly recommend this house. We plan to be back!

Didn't live up to expectations

  • 1 of 5

The owners were lovely people with whom to work. Upon arrival, we met the property manager who was attired in a dirty undershirt and pajama bottoms. Didn't care for awkward kitchen layout, poor water pressure in showers, mouse droppings on kitchen counters every morning (not to mention a dead mouse in a hallway upon our arrival). We loved the firepit and took advantage of the gas grill. The house was stocked with numerous puzzles that we enjoyed. Have stayed at numerous rentals in various parts of the country - this is the only negative review submitted.

It had great kitchen and family room. Great for family to get together.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed meal time with open kitchen and family room. Liked the fire pit. Wished there was more outdoor seating on patio. Great patio and amazing view. Great showers and loved the master bedroom and bathroom. It was great for our family. The kids enjoyed the game room upstairs. Was a great trip for us!

Sagebrush & Stars

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this beautiful spacious home was so relaxing! We are a family of six, & we each had

all the space we wanted, plus some. The house is beautiful. It has a patio that you can walk out on

from either the living room, or the master bedroom. There is also a large fire pit that we did not take the

time to use, but it looks so promising for a beautiful fire at night. You can look out over the sagebrush toward Taos

Mountain & toward the TSV. My FAVORITE view was the millions of stars at night. There is just something about

the clear night sky & a giant full moon that lit up the place as much as early daylight. We did buy 2 bundles of

firewood to build a fire in the Kiva in the living room. We bought our wood at Albertson's grocery in town. You get

a nice amount of wood for the money, not just 3-4 sticks that burn up in no time. The house was spacious, clean,

& relaxing. The owner was super nice to work with. She made sure everything was done properly as far as the booking

& everything. If you are looking for a big beautiful home with great views & quiet location, this one fits the bill !

We have stayed here 4 times over the past two years and it only gets better! It really enhances our vacation time in Taos. I'm writing a 2nd review because it truly is a wonderful home and we would not think of staying anywhere else. We find more and more often, we simply sit outside and just enjoy the beautiful view and utter silence. Normally, when we're on vacation, we're going, going, going, but this home is so relaxing and rejuvenating, that you'll find yourself finding reasons NOT to go out! We always leave refreshed and planning on our next visit! Everyone is so easy to work with - no hassles or headaches. We highly recommend Casa Granada - you will love it!

Perfect Luxury Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazing! It was like staying at a friends home. It is incredibly furnished with high end products and there is nothing you could want that isn't available. Beautiful views, lots of privacy and only minutes from Taos. The layout is perfect for couples or families as the bedrooms are separate for total privacy and the common areas and patio allow plenty of "together" space. The owners and property mgr are extremely easy to work with and very helpful. We have already reserved it for next year and have recommended it to several friends. It is an incredible property and the perfect place to relax, eat, drink and be merry!!
