Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our adult family of 4 stayed New Years week. Casa Seco was lovely in every way! Well appointed, comfortable and great views of the mountains! The heated floors and fireplace kept the house cozy in single digit weather. Neighborhood is quiet and restful! The Appaloosas next door created many photo opps in the snow. Arroyo Seco is within walking distance and Taos is 10 minutes by car. The owners were helpful and easy to work with. Can't wait to return!!

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect! Comfy beds, great living room with a working fireplace (!!!), beautiful landscape surrounding the house, patio with a table and chairs for surveying the scenery, all a short distance from town. I couldn't have asked for more, I'll definitely stay again.

Perfect cozy getaway

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a stay at this cozy and inviting home with my 3 boys and a friend. It is very clean and has a serene feel. Love the location midpoint between Taos ski valley and the Taos Plaza. I would absolutely stay there again. Had some challenges with the wifi but there is a cute little shop in Arroyo Seco with easy wifi. Overall we LOVED this home!

Nice and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have used VRBO in Taos. This house was extremely quiet, comfy and warm. We had a great stay. It is located close to Aroyo Seco, so it is close to the Ski Valley as well as the Town of Taos. Great Location with all the ammenities you need.

Tranquil! Beautiful! Pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect. We visited for a long weekend with our 20 month old. But I could also imagine visiting with my girl friends, or just the husband. We were delighted to find a spacious and well designed home. Especially the wonderful green tile in the kitchen. Open floor plan includes the kitchen, dining room, and living room. Perfect for cooking and hanging out. 2 out of the way bed rooms, and 2 bathrooms. The home was clean and free of home owner clutter. We were delighted to find a swing set n the back yard and goats down the road. You can easily walk to the town of Arroyo Seco. This place is perfect if you don't need to be down town Taos, which is only a 10 min. drive a way. I would not hesitate to rent this place again!
