Overview

New Mexico House Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

Casita Ave Maria is LOVED by all and it is a 900-square foot, OPEN designed casita that was created and built by the Clancys.

(Will book one/two nights for more money per night than three nights per night-- IF it fits with other bookings-just ask.)

Casita Ave Maria showcases a radiused-front wall that opens up the floor space and makes the large kiva fireplace a focal point. David Clancy sculpted the incredible kiva and colored it with the perfect hue to offset it on the adobe-colored plaster that adorns all the walls. Natural wood cabinets shaped and built by David, knotty pine doors and tongue and groove ceilings wrap their warmth around you as you sit in this spiritual space and gaze out the Southern windows at the canyon, the Southwestern windows at the valley below and amazing sun sets or the mountains from the Eastern patio.

The original design of this casita boasts a HUGE patio on the Southern side, a serpentine-pavered patio edged with decorative block piers with lighting insets. The Southwestern side hosts a large patio which can be accessed out the bedroom door. A 6-person hot tub and grande, outdoor fireplace await your arrival on this side and you can sit in the hot tub and marvel at the valley and canyon views, watch the sun rise and set, or count the shooting stars at night.

Talavera-tile adorns the kitchen cupboards and kitchen island. Brick-pavered flooring with RADIANT FLOOR HEATING warm every step you take in this precious space. All NEW, stainless steel appliances await your use. Large, stackable washer and dryer is in its own closet.

The bedroom area is in the OPEN area of the entire casita but tucked away in the SouthWest side of the open space.

A door to the SouthWest patio is off of the bedroom area making quick visits to and from the hot tub or the outdoor fireplace delightfully easy!! Pets are welcome with a pet fee.

Spirit-soothing STEAM shower is stunningly slate-tiled with a glass door that encloses you in what we call the ''Enchanted Cave'' shower. Steam and dream away!

Starting supplies of wood are supplied for your use in both the indoor and outdoor fireplaces, basic start-ups of some spices, laundry and dish soap and paper products are supplied for your pleasure.

Dog/Pet Fee-$15.00 per night/per dog

Everyone loves Casita Ave Maria! You will, too!

If you push "Get an instant quote"--you will notice VRBO now charges you-the traveler- (as of Feb. 2016)- service fees. To avoid that you can pay us through a check or Paypal. We do not charge you service fees. Email for booking rates. If you want to pay by CC through VRBO-just know they will add on a service fee-whatever works for you-works for us.

About Tammi Clancy

Welcome to Casita AveMaria in Taos! We, the Clancys, purchased our vacation/future retirement home property in 2007. We had often visited Taos and enjoyed our short stays. It was during the filming of a short, indie-film for a friend, with Taos as the location, that Tammi declared she wanted to retire in Taos. The Taos magic blessed that statement. We have had the most amazing guests and they have all added to the charm of our home.

Tammi Clancy purchased this house in 2007

Why Tammi Clancy chose New Mexico

The Land of Enchantment, truly, enough said. One has to experience it to know that it IS.

Relax and revive!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent five amazing days and nights at this perfect casita! The panaramic views from the house and deck were amazing! All of our needs were well taken care of! The house was spotless and very comfortable! Hiking and day driving trips showed us many breathtaking views of the Rio Grande, mountains and local wildlife. Dining in Taos was amazing! Hope to come again and would definately stay at this casita again!

Great Home and location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent several nights here while on a snowboarding trip to Taos. We really like the location, halfway between town and the ski resort. The hot tub and steam shower were great for unwinding and getting ready to hit the slopes again. The property was very well stocked with towers, paper goods, and kitchen items. The owners were close by and very helpful. We would definitely come back here.

Ultimate relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the relaxation amenities of the casita. Staying here for our ski trip to Taos ski valley was very convienent as it was just a short 20 minute drive to the ski area every day. Cooking in added to to the relaxation of this trip giving us time to enjoy the hot tub and outdoor fireplace. Every evening we were welcomed to this land of enchantment with the howl of the coyotes over a beautiful sunset while sitting in the hot tub. We would highly recommend the casita to anyone that wants an off the beaten path vacation home that has all the features needed for a blissful retreat! We would highly recommend this property to anyone needing a cozy place to stay as all descriptions of this property were very accurate and the Clancys were great hosts. Hope to be back soon!

Great Base Camp for Skiing Taos and Angel Fire

  • 5 of 5

Like the title says, this was just a perfect off-the-beaten-path base-camp for skiing Taos and Angel Fire. The sunsets and colors were amazing during the day, and the stars are amazing at night. This is the place to be in El Niño winters.

Wonderful winter weekend!

  • 5 of 5

I agree with all the great, positive past reviews. There is one point I'd like to mention. This is a great rental for star starved city dwellers! In the winter the sun sets early, stars come out and you enjoy them from the hot tub! Or get up early, drink your coffee and look at the stars from every giant window in the place. Perfectly positioned between the town of Taos and the Taos Ski Valley, don't hesitate to rent this house ... You will be glad you did!
