VIEWS, PRIVACY, KING BEDS, APPLE TV & GARDEN DINING IN 'GREEN' HOME

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Taos

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Perched on an acre of land, on a mesa above Taos, Casa Arequipa offers sweeping vistas of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and spectacular sunsets. From the minute you arrive, you will feel like you are home. From the 3 unique bedrooms, to the welcoming living room with kiva fireplace and viga ceilings, to the well-stocked kitchen, Casa Arequipa is truly a home, not just a rental and the difference is notable.

Privacy and quiet abound at this classic, adobe home. Colorful interior walls, original artwork, many pieces by local artists, and eclectic furnishings remind you that you have escaped to Taos! Outside the home, adobe walls and traditional latilla fences define private, front and back courtyards. Enjoy relaxing in the hot tub that hides in a sheltered nook in the back courtyard, soaking up the breathtaking views of the mountains and stars. The outside dining area, lighted by strands of romantic white lights, can seat up to 10. Privacy and peace and quiet abound at this lovely abode.

Casa Arequipa is conveniently located between Taos Plaza and Taos Ski Valley, in the Millicent Rogers Museum area. It’s north-of-town setting allows you to avoid in-town traffic making it easy to access all that the Taos area has to offer. With an unlimited variety of activities for those that love the out-of-doors, history, art, music and great food, there is something for everyone!

Besides a convenient location and great charm, Casa Arequipa offers all the amenities: satellite TV, CD/AM/FM sound system, High-speed wireless internet, hot tub, washer, dryer, outdoor grill, and the most comfortable beds you have ever slept in! A twin inflatable mattress can accommodate one additional adult or child. One dog is permitted with the signing of a pet agreement and receipt of a non-refundable pet deposit.

As an added bonus, Casa Arequipa is a ‘green home’. The house is real adobe, one of the best insulating building products available. It was originally built to be passive solar and the large windows provide lovely warmth and light. In addition, new dual pane windows have been installed, unscented, non-toxic products are used for cleaning and laundry and are supplied for guest use. Organic cotton sheets for chemical free sleep are provided as well as unscented, high end bath soaps. CFL and LED bulbs have been installed in the majority of fixtures and solar lighting is exclusively used outside. Non-electric clocks with rechargeable batteries and a recharger are available and the garden is watered via a drip irrigation system. The owners have also signed up for pollution free, renewable wind generated electricity through Kit Carson Electric Co-op. They have purchased ten 100 kilowatt blocks through their Green Power program, offsetting the environmental impact of driving 24,000 miles!

Legend has it that an Incan leader exclaimed 'ari quepay' (Yes, let’s stop here in Quechuan) when he found just the right place to live...and so the city of Arequipa, Peru, was born. We felt the same way when we found Casa Arequipa and hope you will as well, making our home your home for all your visits to Taos.

We live in Phoenix, AZ. When we can escape from work, we love to come up to Taos, especially in the summer.

Wendy Rozzelle purchased this house in 2004

We first came to Taos when we were undergraduates studying Geology at the University of North Carolina. During our summer of field camp, we fell in love with Taos. It took a long time to get back, but we are finally able to come up for vacations. We love the mountains for the views, hiking and skiing and both the art and intellectual scene in Taos. There is always something to do or learn and we look forward to the day when we can spend lots more time there!

Relaxing! Hiking, rafting, tubing, getting to know others in Taos, eating outside, going out to hear music or to learn something new at one of the many lectures offered in town and watching art being created all around us.

Excellent choice, beautiful house!

  • 5 out of 5
When you eneter Casa Arequipa you can see imediately that the owner loves this house. The pictures and the description were accurate and we didn't miss anything there. The house is very welcoming, clean and well equiped with all essentials including; dish and laundry detergents of high quality, all organic items in the kitchen, bedding and towels. We felt home and took a good care as it's our own house. The owner was very helpful in providing an extra bed and didn't mind us bringing along our little dog.
House is situated somewhere in the middle between Taos and Skii Valley and it didn't take us long to get to the slopes. We might come back next year and i'm highly recomending this house for your stay.

Outstanding!

  • 5 out of 5
Had the pleasure of staying at this home during the holidays and couldn't have had a more perfect experience! We loved how welcoming and cozy the home was to us. The kitchen and dining room were perfect for preparing and enjoying group dinners, the fireplace a great addition to our card nights, and the hot tub provided amazing views day & night. We were also quite close to the heart of town and the Ski Valley while still feeling like we were out on the open range. The home was very clean and included all of the amenities we needed - the washer & dryer was very handy after a long day of skiiing! This is the home we pictured when we dreamed of visiting Taos and we are definitely planning to return someday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. There is really nothing better than a card game in front of a cozy fire, unless it's star watching from the hot tub! We are so glad you had a great time and hope you will be back for more visits in the future.

Wonderful Vacation Retreat!

  • 5 out of 5
Casa Arequipa is a private, beautifully designed home with incredible views of the Taos mountains. Anyone lucky enough to spend their vacation here will not be disappointed in the cleanliness or grace of this wonderful house. Thoughtfully furnished with antiques from around the world, Casa Arequipa provides a unique and cozy environment for anyone hoping to temporarily escape the bustle of their everyday lives. I visited in late December of 2013 with my best friend and her family and we had a peaceful stay highlighted by delicious food from local restaurants (the home also has a large, fully stocked kitchen), great skiing, majestic views, and cozy evenings by the fire. In short, Casa Arequipa is a relaxing retreat that I cannot recommend highly enough. The home is also pet friendly, conveniently located for most Taos tourism/leisure destinations, and equipped with a great hot tub!

Beautiful Taos Home!

  • 5 out of 5
You will not be disappointed if you choose Casa Arequipa for you next Taos adventure. As you can see from the photos...this is a beautifully decorated home with expansive views, a lovely private garden, and large comfy beds. There is plenty of room in the main living area for cooking, dining, and watching a movie or two with friends. The home has everything you could need. Great location means you can head into town in just a few minutes or out to the mountains for some more serious exploring – or just sit on the patio and soak up the views of beautiful Taos! I highly recommend Casa Arequipa!

A Great Place to Stay for Skiing at Taos

  • 5 out of 5
This was my family's second time to Taos and we had a fantastic time at Casa Arequipa. Everything was just as the website stated it would be. There were six of us and we were comfortable and enjoyed every amenity. This area of Taos is very convenient to skiing at Taos Ski Valley. I plan to stay here again.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 out of 5
After lots of online shopping, I booked this house for three couples of longtime friends, and we enjoyed our stay so much. We cooked inside one night, grilled another night, and enjoyed our outside time on the patio in the lovely courtyard since the weather was perfect. Although the living room furniture (except for the sofa) could be a little more comfy for us older folks who enjoy sitting around together, reading and talking, it definitely fits the decor and style of the house, and we were in and out a lot anyway, eating, shopping, and sightseeing. Pictures and descriptions were accurate, and there were helpful notes about use of particular things in the home. It was extremely clean and well maintained, and we did not need anything that wasn't already there or were able to make do with something else. If and when we are able to return I hope this house will still be available as it was perfect for us. Thanks so much for making it available!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. I appreciate your comment about the living room. I am always looking for ways to make the house the best it can be! Sadly that space is awkward with too much furniture, so next time, please feel free to just pull the couch back and bring in the chairs from the sunroom. We don't mind guests moving furniture as long as they put it back before they leave. I am glad you had a great time and look forward to your future visits.
