Reviewer Comments:

My husband and I just spent Thanksgiving week at Casa Cielo. First, if you are looking for a very remote location this is the place for you. We were pleasantly surprised to find the home was up a long dirt road and over a mountain. When they say you need 4 wheel drive in the winter months, they aren't kidding. Ours came in handy this early in the winter season. The house is made of adobe and holds the heat or cool air well. We didn't run the AC or heat at all during our stay and actually slept with the bedroom windows open with temperatures in the low 20's outside. Never got hot or cold. Great, high quality, ceiling fans are in the house as well. For the negatives, the caretaker and Premiere Properties were not responsive. On the day of our arrival, we found no less than TEN lights out/missing in the kitchen and appliances. I had to cook Thanksgiving dinner with subdued lighting. I texted the caretaker asking if their were bulbs anywhere (I couldn't find any) and he never answered. So, I emailed Premiere on Monday and they never answered either. We found out later that there were 4 bulbs out in the master bedroom and one on the back porch blew during the week with no replacements available. Approaching the front door there are 3 pretty steep steps and no hand rails. It was slippery a few mornings and it was hard to get down without having something to hold on to. There are two first floor porches but we couldn't enjoy them because there was no chairs available. We only used the master bedroom while there and the wood bed was very dusty. I'm unsure if we would stay here again due to the issues we had. The things I listed are somewhat minor but these are the types of things that shouldn't happen at all. If we came back it would be for the remoteness and the views.

Secluded, yet connected (great Sat TV, good internet, my cell phone even worked), 300 degrees of million dollar views and lots of wildlife. Caught some trout in the Rio Grande and Red rivers. Taos has a rich culture and wonderful local cuisine. Great trip...

Reviewer Comments:

Good overall. House in good shape. Superb location, very remote. Outstanding views. Extremely quiet. A few maintenance issues here and there to tend to (a few doors handles that need to be replaced, outdoor furniture in need of replacement, other minor issues). House should be stocked with more paper towels and toilet paper next time, or ask guests to bring some. Property folks very responsive. Only real issue is the booking process. I cannot understand in 2016 why on earth I would ever need to fax something and why I would make part of a payment with a credit card and then be required to send a check. This is completely unnecessary. There are many easy methods to make this all electronic, and you'd probably have more quality bookings by doing so.

Owner's Response: Dear Tim, Thank you for your time and effort to write this review. I am glad to know that you appreciated the serenity of the location and the outstanding reviews. The reason we ask for half payment by check and half by credit card is simply to keep costs down so that we may offer lower nightly rates. If someone insists on paying 100% by credit card they may do so with an additional charge for the 2nd half. Credit card purchases are costly and paying half by check allows us to offer lower nightly rates.

Reviewer Comments:

This house would be better suited for ski season rather than summertime.Most of house layout is upstairs with no A/C. We had 3 days where it was too warm inside. There are few tall pines, it is scrub country. 2 miles of dirt road of which first half mile is not maintained as you pass through the ghetto area of valley.

Reviewer Comments:

Our family of 6 stayed in Casa Cielo for 4 nights in July, 2016. I have to say, this might be one of my favorite rentals of all time. Although it's a challenging gravel road to the house, once you arrive, everything is perfect. Just know that you can't easily run out for milk or to grab a bite to eat to bring home! Even without AC, the house cooled down nicely with the windows open and we were all very comfortable. The house has upscale appliances, nice beds and an incredible view of the mountains. The night sky was amazing-my kids were blown away by the number of stars you could see, with no neighbors or lights from the surrounding area. 4 stars for the property's general condition because the internet went out for 2 days which was a bummer for our college son who needed to submit a paper. Otherwise, the experience was great and I would recommend this house to any family.

It was a great place to stay for 8 friends on a ski trip. Enough room for everyone and their equipment. The hot tub was great after a long day of skiing. It was a little off the beaten path but that kind of added to its charm. Would definitely stay again when traveling to Taos.
