Family of four, Steve an attorney and business owner, Perihan owns her own business as well and two sons, Aydin (15) and Koray (12).

Stephen Gates purchased this house in 2006

We were simply awestruck by the beauty seen from the homesite. When the agent took us up there and we stepped out of the car, our first thought was OMG, which I said out loud, probably costing us another $10K. We've never been in a place with such varied and magnificent views and with sunsets and rainbows like we've never known. They call NM the land of enchantment and being up on this mountainside looking down to the valley below and mountains around us is exactly what the brochures claim, as hard as that may be to believe. Enchanting is the correct word.

Odd as it may sound, we have a lot of birds here even though it's a dryer kind of forest (pinon and juniper) with some sagebrush. We do have a water feature, an orchard and some special plantings for birds, so we end up with nesting Mountain Bluebirds, Towhees, Hummingbirds and a wide variety of other birds large and small. Our floor to ceiling windows in the dining room give a real birds-eye view (sorry, couldn't help myself) of their shenanigans.

Great house, incredible views.

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of three plus photographer brother stayed here for 10 days in late July. We had a great stay. The house was beautiful, spacious, well furnished and well decorated in a comfortable southwest style. The beds were extremely comfortable. Loved the birds. Bought and left a hummingbird feeder outside the sun room.The hummers kept us entertained daily. Almost every night we sat outside and watch spectacular lightning storms off in the distance. But it rarely actually rained. The house is outside of town, but just a few minute easy drive to the center of Taos. Lots of great restaurants. Especially loved the old Rancho de Taos Plaza Grill. The best red chili sauce we found. Be sure to funyak the Rio Grande Gorge. Taos was smaller than we expected, but charming and friendly. The surrounding area has great hikes and history. After leaving Taos we spent a day in Bandolier National Monument, another in Chaco Canyon, and a third at Acoma Pueblo. I highly recommend all three. My only suggestion as far as the rental house is concerned is the addition of ceiling fans. It was really hot during the day, and even at night the house stayed warm. Ceiling fans would be icing on the cake. Thanks, Stephen, for sharing your great spot with us. We hope to return one day.
