Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Valdez - Casa Vistas

3.5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Casa Vistas, one of Taos Premiere Properties very private and secluded Taos vacation rentals boasts Million Dollar views and total peace and tranquility. There are nearby neighbors shielded by tall pines.

Built in 1999, this classic adobe three-bedroom, two-bath home is the epitome of charm and artfully-stated elegance. New, sparkling clean, and made of all natural authentic materials, the floors are handsome Mexican saltillo terra-cotta tile, the ceilings are natural aspen tongue-and-grove supported by traditional wood vigas. The interior walls feature soft, flowing, rounded plaster lines with a lovely sculptured kiva fireplace in the living room.

Huge picture windows admit lots of light, winter warmth, and spectacular views of the Taos Mountain Range. The furnishings are tastefully southwestern. A cheerful and complete kitchen with breakfast bar has custom cabinets, Italian tile, and is fully equipped for all your cooking needs.

Located between town and Taos Ski Valley, this exceptional location brings you up close to nature. The area is known as Deer Mesa due to the frequent sightings of deer and elk. The property overlooks the one million acre Carson National Forest (see top panorama) and is surrounded by mature pinion, pine, and juniper trees.

If you want to get away from it all and bask in Taos, New Mexico splendor, come and vacation at Casa Vistas. You will want to come back again and again.

For guests concerned with summer temperatures - which are always moderate with only 8 to 10 days in the upper 90's and one or two days at 100.

In the owner / designer's words:

"Two upstairs bedrooms have ceiling fans, most windows have sun shades.

I know this is more technical than the information you are asking for, but I designed this house with both natural heating and cooling

foremost in its design.

1) Exterior walls are 14 inch think adobe walls which provide a 12 hour delay between the days heat and nights cool temps reaching the interior of the house and provides a large thermal mass.

2) South windows have an overhang which allows winter sunlight in to warm the interior while shading the higher summer sun.

3) East and west facing windows use a special heat mirror glass that rejects the sun's radiant heat while letting visible light in.

4) The concrete slab is 12 inches thick throughout and 24 inches thick near the south facing windows to provide additional thermal mass

I've been in the house when the outside temperature was 100 degrees and felt very comfortable."

From Premiere: "All of Taos keeps their windows open at night to allow cool air to build and close / cover windows during the day to keep the cool temps going and hot air out. Works like magic.

4 wheel or chains required for 2 gentle 20 degree short slopes that can be the last to be plowed on snowy days.

Absolutely beautiful location. The property was spotless when we arrived and was better than the pictures could describe. This is a great place to unplug, refresh and relax. Can't wait to get back.

Reviewer Comments:

The house itself was very clean and well maintained. The views were gorgeous and we really enjoyed the stars. HOWEVER, this rental does not have internet, as stated in the description and in the contract. The home is so far secluded that you do not have cell service and therefore would have to rely on the internet/wifi available. Huge disappointment for us and, honestly, had we known beforehand, would have picked another rental. Being business owners, the ability to access emails (among other things) is imperative and we were forced to drive 30 mins daily to an area we were able to pick up cell service. The only thing we were able to do from the house was make phone calls and text. This may not be an issue for everyone, but it is definitely something to keep in mind if you are considering this rental property.

Spectacular views of the mountains. Nice Home, very spacious and with all amenities, including towels, blankets. We loved the jacuzzi after hiking. The night sky is amazing. The property was well kept. Only disappointment was no internet when it was offered in the contract. Should have told us ahead of time, some of us needed it to get some away from home work online.

Reviewer Comments:

Wonderful place to get away from it all. Amazing views of the magnificent desert sky over the mountains. Quiet, private and comfortable. We had difficulty with internet service and satellite television reception out in the home's remote location. However, we decided we liked the peace and quiet, so never called the management about it.

Reviewer Comments:

The best views of any place I've ever stayed.The house was roomy with great flow,but the pillows and linens need to be upgraded along with the living room rug. Other rentals I've stayed in around the Taos area had better basic pantry contents than this one. It was a great place to stay, and I would go again.
