Nature, music & arts lover inspired by the endless joy & balance they bring. Casa de Luz is my Taos home offered for your own private retreat in this magical place known as 'The Land of Enchantment.'
The Owner purchased this house in 2004
Taos & its surrounding area known as 'the Enchanted Circle' offer so many gifts -- arts, entertainment, Southwestern cuisine, multi-cultural events, historic sites, Pueblo dances, a casino & of course, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, fishing, whitewater rafting, kayaking & much more.
A beautiful location with a beautiful home and unobstructed views of Wheeler Peak & Taos Pueblo's sacred Taos Mountain. The Town of Taos has traffic noise & limited mountain views & star-gazing. Casa de Luz is only a short drive to Taos Plaza yet offers quietude, mountain views with incredible sunrises, sunsets & night sky stargazing from your own private hot tub with nearby dining, entertainment & outdoor activities, including Taos Ski Valley, hiking & trout fishing. Casa de Luz a private retreat from the hustle/bustle of urban life or for anyone looking for personal space.
We had a great time! We love that this house is away from the Plaza and quiet! We loved the house, decor, light, and views. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!
Our second visit to Casa De Luz, Sharon was as always so helpful and welcoming. The Casa was perfectly prepared and we really look forward to coming again. One of our favorite places.
My Husband, dog and I returned recently from our week long stay at Casa De Luz. We have been coming to Taos for many years and enjoyed this beautiful, comfortable and well stocked home. We felt at home the moment we walked in after a long drive. Sharon had candles glowing and a beautiful bottle of wine waiting for us and some delicious dog biscuits for our boy, Joe! We enjoyed the privacy of the yard, spa and cozy rooms. Meals on the patio were also a treat. Casa De Luz is a lovely home and we enjoyed our stay very much. Thank You Sharon.
Just perfect! We loved all the extras to make us feel welcome. Quiet, comfortable, and we were able to enjoy our dogs being with us. They loved the backyard! The house is close enough to everything, yet far enough away. We would definitely come back.
It was a great condo. The pics did not do it justice. Perfect distance between town and
the ski hill. Easy access and we loved the hot tub. I would recommend to anyone who
was going to ski Taos. Thanks for everything we had a great vacation.
We enjoyed our stay. I would come back again.
I have been coming to Taos for 22 years and this is now my favorite place to stay!!! Thank you, Sharon, for meeting all our comfort needs. The hot tub was great after our long day of skiing and is placed just right so we could gaze up at the Milky Way. When we first entered the house, wonderful music was playing and wine glasses and wine were awaiting us. The sunset views were amazing to watch from the front or back yard. Again, Sharon, thank you for sharing your home with us.
