About Melissa /Taos mgr. cell 415 497-7761

Native Texan but an adopted New Mexican. I pack my stuff and 3 dogs in the car and come to Taos every chance I get to enjoy the sky, mountains, skiing, cycling, hiking, rafting, fascinating people, exploring the art scene ( new and old), history, live music, great food and the laid-back atmosphere.

Melissa /Taos mgr. cell 415 497-7761 purchased this house in 2010

Why Melissa /Taos mgr. cell 415 497-7761 chose New Mexico

I grew up coming to New Mexico and have always loved it. Taos has everything to offer from outdoor activities and sports to the arts, live music, shopping and restaurants

What makes this house unique

Nearby Sunset Park and Valverde Commons have the best dog-walking paths in Taos. Take a cooler to Sunset Park and watch the sun set over the mountains. Walk 5 minutes to the Plaza for shopping, art galleries and restaurants.

We'll be back!

This is our second time staying here and we love it. The location is perfect with views of the mountains and open fields, yet so close to the Plaza. Very inviting and comfortable home.

Owner's Response: We are thrilled to have returning guests. You are so right, the house is very close to the Plaza, restaurants and shops but when you are sitting on the porch, you feel like you are far out in the country. Once you stay in this home, it is easy to understand why people keep coming back. Thanks so much for the thoughtful review.

Great location and house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house, the location was great for easy walking or driving to everything, and Sunset park right down the block was great for us to run our dogs. The house was clean and warm, with plenty of room for 4 adults, an infant, and 3 dogs. There is great art decorating the house, with a nice selection of books and magazines to read about the region. The kitchen was well equipped for the few meals we prepared. It wasn't quite cold enough to use the Kiva but maybe we will come back when it snows. Overall great house and working with Melissa is very easy and enjoyable

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Best of Both Worlds. Everything downtown is within walking distance of the house. The kitchen is equipped with all the appliances, cooking utensils and well stocked pantry necessary for dining in if you choose. Otherwise, the walk to downtown is less than 10-15 minutes for breakfast, lunch or dinner (check out Michael's for breakfast; it's amazing.).

Beds are very comfortable and despite the smaller sized guest bedroom, it really is a very cozy home. Every afternoon we sat outside on the patio and watched the storms forming over the mountains to the north. Great TV/Cable reception (although we never used it). The internet service is a little slow, but that's forgivable given the geographic location.

Thanks for the great experience!

Great rental for exploring downtown Taos

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location with a well equipped kitchen for two couples to enjoy 3 nights in Taos. The southwest decor is very attractive. The outdoor patio is ideal for morning coffee and evening glasses of wine. Bonus view of horses in the field below!
