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.'
Owner purchased this House in 2004
Why Owner chose El Prado
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

Perfect For Our Needs
Nice comfy place. Beautiful views from the couch.
Very convenient for our days in Taos and our two visits down to Santa Fe.
Great yard for our dog. Very dog friendly, our dog made some new friends in the neighborhood.
All in all a great place for a vacation.
What an honor for you to choose Casa de Luz for your return to the area after all these years! Thank you for your kind comments; I especially enjoyed hearing of your travel plans and activities to make the most of what New Mexico has to offer. We're glad Buddy enjoyed his stay, too -- he and his human companions are welcome back anytime you may return to our Enchanted Circle!
Great view of surrounding mountains. Nice to see bluebirds and magpies visit in January. Instructions for using house were very helpful. The gas fireplace added so much warmth. The location was perfect for services and shopping in Taos. We were so comfortable staying here at the Casa De Luz and hope to return soon.
We enjoyed our stay
Very centrally located. Very clean, and very Taos. We would stay here again. Owner service was as good as I've experienced on any vacation stay with Vacation rental sights
Beautiful Home Away From Home!! Comfy & cozy with absolutely everything you need and more!
This beautiful adobe style house is in a wonderful location just outside of Taos. There are several dining options close by and also in Arroyo Seco. Taos is nice, but it gets crowded so this location was perfect. The house is warm and cozy and super clean. It is equipped with everything you will need and a nice bottle of wine was waiting for us when we arrived. Sharon has thought of it all and it makes your stay so effortless. The back yard is perfect for the dogs and the hot tub was wonderful before bed. We highly recommend Casa del Luz for your stay and would love to come back!!! Thank you Sharon!!!
Beautiful views, great back yard for our pups and Sharon made us feel welcome, including treats for the dogs and wine for us, very appreciated after long drive. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Lovely home away from home
This classic adobe home was a perfect spot to stay while we spent a week exploring the gorgeous natural beauty of the surrounding area. Casa De Luz is a complete home, comfy, very clean, beautiful mountain views, quiet. Sited on 1.3 acres, though neighboring homes are nearby, we never heard a sound from them (living in a rather noisy area, quiet surroundings while vacationing is key to us). The owner provides her own comprehensive guide to dining and activities - very helpful. Relaxing in the private jacuzzi after a day of mountain biking, taking in the stars, we felt grateful to have found Casa De Luz.
