It's actually as good as it looks

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in various houses like this around the country, and I can honestly say that the Taos House keeps its promise. The fit and finish and attention to detail are exactly what you are hoping for.

The staff is fabulous, attentive, caring, quick.

The house is decorated by a human, not some committee, and it feels fabulous. It might make you want to move to Taos. And of course, the amazing Cid's food market will close the deal.

Have fun!

Peaceful and Relaxed at Zen Adobe

  • 5 of 5

Zen Adobe was a wonderful and relaxing haven! The house was beautiful and very well equipt with all the necessities. Everything was very clean and we were greeted by a great property manager that was available if we needed her for anything. The location was great too. We were nicely away from Taos but close enough to get to the store or restaurants. It is also an hour drive to Santa Fe. We would highly recommend Zen Adobe to anyone and would be happy to return for another visit. Our favorite experience was watching a thunderstorm move over the mountains and then seeing a double rainbow!

Gorgeous home and setting!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had the loveliest time staying in this beautiful home! The home is about 10 minutes from town and about 30 minutes to Taos Ski Valley. We enjoyed being in the natural remote setting, but you do have to get in the car to go anywhere (though at times, we just wanted to stay and enjoy the house!).

The home was extremely clean, well maintained and had great amenities. I am an interior designer, so I am very picky about how a space looks and feels, and this house was just beautifully done. We enjoyed the hot tub under the stars after a long day of skiing. We didn't get a chance to use the sauna but it looked fantastic.

The house and layout was great for kids, all being on one level and open flow. Our son really started walking for the first time on our trip because of the long open corridors. The kids also enjoyed the atrium with sand and playing in the snow outside. I would say you do have to bring some toys if you have little ones, because there are not any in the house. But for older kids, the ping pong and billiard tables were a hit. (for the adults too!)

The concierge service was fantastic and very accommodating. They got roll away beds set up for the kids and even draped blankets on the windows to create a darker sleep environment for us. They also did grocery shopping for us for a fee, which was a great help since we arrived late in the evening.

Couldn't be happier, we will definitely come back!

Taos Gem

  • 5 of 5

We ventured to Taos in September to just get away and do some mountain biking. Three couples taking a sabbatical from our children. We were captivated by the house and the pictures that were posted online. Well, as professional as the pictures were, they can't do the house justice. It was phenomenal!! It really does have a ZEN feeling to it, not just in the decor, but in the overall ambiance. From the moment we arrived and Sunny (the local host) showed us around, we felt at home. Huge rooms, high ceilings, a professional kitchen and comfy furniture. We did some mountain biking while there (Talpa Traverse is almost out the front door and South Boundary Trail to the south are fantastic). Oh, we'll be back! The ski mountain calls and if we make a trip down, Adobe Zen will definitely be our choice for an extended stay. Our thanks to Mark, Jeanne and Sunny for all of their attention to detail!!

A Must Stay!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking at the Taos area for a get away for either in season or out of season, this property is a must. It truly has it all. A large gourmet kitchen with all of the features you would want plus fantastic views. A great room that is extremely spacious and comfortable which flows right into a family/media room to relax in. There are three well appointed bedrooms with two adjacent baths that have large, walk in showers. The master has his and hers baths and a large adjustable-angle, wall-mounted, flat screen TV along with a walk out patio to a Jacuzzi tub & sauna to relax your weary bones in!

Extras include a laundry room, a game room with ping pong and pool tables, an outdoor gas range, a very large landscaped lot that sits off the road, a zen garden that is located in the center of the home in middle courtyard covered by a motorized skylight roof that opens and closes at the push of a button! We did not have a chance to use it as we were there in the summer season, but there is in-floor radiant heat throughout the home. All rooms are tastefully decorated and set with comfortable furniture.

The home is located in an upscale neighborhood just outside of the town of Taos and is mere minutes away from shopping and dining anywhere in Taos. The views of the mountains and of the town are great and the night skies are stunning. Drives to Santa Fe, Taos Ski Resort, Casinos, the Rio Grande River Gorge, etc. are easy day trips and well worth the drive. We really enjoyed shopping in Taos and Santa Fe along with sampling the delicious cuisine of the area.

All in all, we had a wonderful time at this property (we use Vrbo often) which was just what we needed for a relaxing and fun get away. This is definitely a case where the professionally done pictures are indicative of the quality of this home. Enjoy!

~ Mark & Erika
