This first floor, New Mexican-styled condominium is located in an intimate condo complex (just 6 single story units) on a quiet street, which backs up to a large horse pasture and is an easy walk to the historic Taos Plaza. This property was completely remodeled in 2003, and features a beautiful adobe-walled private patio, where you may choose to relax and read a favorite book, enjoy your morning coffee, or chat with friends. This private patio features a bistro-style table & chairs with shade umbrella, as well as a picnic table for additional seating or setting up your breakfast or happy hour buffet. A chiminea fireplace in the corner of the patio provides the perfect ambiance on a cool New Mexican evening.
This cozy condo (470 sq. ft.) offers a nicely equipped and bright kitchen, an adjoining living room with a new full-size sleeper sofa, television (cable & DVD), wifi, southwestern art, and additional storage. The bedroom features a comfortable queen bed and built-in drawers and closets, television (cable & DVD). Wood and tile floors throughout the unit, and the bathroom features a tiled walk-in shower, as well as laundry facilities.
From the condo, you can walk to art galleries & working studios, the local micro brew pub (Eske's), as well as many excellent restaurants and shops. Be sure to visit the Farmer's Market, which takes place each Saturday from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. starting May 12th and ending in late October, in the town hall parking lot next to the library. By car, visit the Taos Pueblo located just minutes away, or explore Santa Fe, less than 2 hours south. Local outdoor activities include hiking, snowshoeing, road and mountain biking, downhill and cross country skiing, and sledding, snowboarding at Red River Ski Area or Angel Fire Resort, and skiing at Taos Ski Valley (TSV). 'TSV remains one of the few family owned and operated ski resorts in North America'.
Throughout the year you will find a variety of food, music, art and fiber/weaving festivals taking place in and around Taos.
I'm a retired teacher and a librarian, married for 30 years. My husband and I have one child and two grandchildren. We have been vacationing in Taos for over 30 plus years and finally decided to purchase a condo near the Taos Plaza, so that we could be in walking distance of the downtown area. Ollie is our three-legged, one and a half ear rescue weimaraner.
Joanne Meester purchased this condo in 2007
Our condo is close to the plaza on a quiet street in a quiet neighborhood. This small one bedroom condo is in a nicely landscaped complex of six condos; the year-round neighbors are exceptionally nice. The original adobe structure is over 100 years, and was remodeled in 2003. What a history that 100 years must house. You'll enjoy a great kitchen and a lovely patio area with a high fenced area for privacy. There's a barbeque and fireplace on the patio and the sun shines early in the morning providing a fabulous place to enjoy your coffee and breakfast.
We had such a great time. The condo is decorated with all the flavor of Taos. We went skiing and then spent a day walking to all the shops. Our last night we went to the Adobe bar and danced all night and walked home. We found everything we needed to feel at home. Thank you ! Vickie and Carl Mcmakin
We had a great experience! Very clean and cozy. It had everything we needed. The location was conveniently located to the main plaza ( walking distance). We will definitely stay again!
Condo included everything we needed. It is within easy walking distance to the Taos Plaza and roads to ski resorts are easily accessible. It was not the first time we stayed in this particular unit and we chose it because we like it. We will probably stay here again. Perhaps we will come sometime when the weather is warmer and we can enjoy the patio.
This was my first time back to Taos since 1996 and using Home Away. Joanne was great the whole way through. We had a bunch of questions that she answered. Made sure we felt at home and made the process go so smoothly. Only thing we would note is if you are taller than 5'11, you may have a challenge with the shower if you're used to raising your arms above your head to shower. I'm short, so it wasn't a big deal, but my husband is 5'11 and he managed. Adobe homes aren't notorious for high ceilings so we were prepared. Besides that, the condo was perfect for a couple ready to explore and relax in the Taos area.
The condo was close to the plaza, but on a quiet side street. We loved the private patio. Really enjoyed the chiminaya on the chilly evenings. Everything we needed was provided.
The property description was accurate, and the property was clean and well-maintained. The owner is terrific to deal with and very responsive to questions. We loved eating breakfast on the patio. One drawback was no screen door on the front, which would have been great for fresh air ventilation, but we did have air conditioning. We enjoyed being close to the Plaza.
