About Stephen Gates

Family of four, Steve an attorney and business owner, Perihan owns her own business as well and two sons, Aydin (17) and Koray (13).

Stephen Gates purchased this house in 2006

Why Stephen Gates chose New Mexico

We were simply awestruck by the beauty seen from the homesite. We've never been in a place with such varied and magnificent views and with sunsets and rainbows like we've never known. They call New Mexico the land of enchantment and being up on this mountainside looking down to the valley below and mountains around us is exactly what the brochures claim, as hard as that may be to believe. Enchanting is the correct word.

What makes this house unique

Odd as it may sound, we have a lot of birds here even though it's a dryer kind of forest (pinon and juniper) with some sagebrush. We do have a water feature, an orchard and some special plantings for birds, so we end up with nesting Mountain Bluebirds, Towhees, Hummingbirds and a wide variety of other birds large and small. Our floor to ceiling windows in the dining room give a real birds-eye view (sorry, couldn't help myself) of their shenanigans.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is a hoise I would highly recommend to those heading to Taos. The house is about 6 miles South of Taos - close enough to be in Taos in 10 minutes but out far enough to have great views and spectacular sunsets! We spent mornings and late afternoons outside just taking in the scenery. We really enjoyed the Hummingbirds and rabbits..

The house is situated ideally for day trips, having great access to the major highways. The owner is extrememly accommodating as well!

The house is set up with several rooms ideal for reading while enjoying the scenery outdoors. There are books and DVD's for everyone and the kitchen is great with all the necessities.

If you're coming to Taos, this is the house for you!

The home was beautiful, well stocked w/ towels and needed items. Very welcoming,breathe taking views

  • 5 of 5

We were all excited when we pulled up, Cash (6) and Mia (5) couldn't believe we were going to live here for 4 days.The kids room was Awesome. I would have liked to had the common area outside weeded and it would have been nice to have the fountain working but that was the only complaint.

We ate at the 5 star burgers- It was excellent, Went to the Taos Pueblo(very cool). I would recommend taking the trolley tour-$43 per person , it will take you to the Pueblo and a few other places. We didn't do this but had we known about it we would have rather skipped the driving. The Rio Grande Gorge is a must. You can see it from the house and you actually drive down into it. Pretty cool views. Nice shops for the kids to pick out gifts and treasures. Lots to do and pacing yourself/ staying hydrated is very crutial especially with little ones.

The sunrises and sunsets were beautiful, bird watching was fun and we saw our first jack rabbit. We did a lot of sightseeing using the Taos book provided.Coming home to a big spacious house was wonderful. Thank you for sharing your home with my family, We all met here for a family Vacation.(California, Missouri and Illinois) we will be returning in near future and we be recommending this trip to others. Thanks Again for sharing your home. John and Sherry Braun and Family

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review. Sorry about the weeds and pond. The wet spring just overran us this year. We'll be sure not to let that happen again!

Awesome Views

  • 5 of 5

If you want to be outside town, only a few minutes, in an attractive home with awesome views and sunsets, this is the place. Steve, the owner, is very attentive and a good host. We look forward to another opportunity to stay.

Lovely views all around....

  • 4 of 5

Overall this was a really nice house to stay in - the location and views of the mountains and high desert were amazing. It was quiet

and an easy place to relax. The fire pit out back is great. Bird watching was excellent. Kitchen is well equipped, which I found helpful as I like

to cook. Lots of sleeping space if you have a big group. Proximity to Taos is fantastic, as well as many things

to do, such as walks, hikes, art galleries, scenic drives, etc. The owner checked in before my arrival to make sure I had the info we needed,

which I appreciated.

My only (constructive)criticism has to do with the master bed - it was so uncomfortable. We have had this challenge with a few rentals

and truly wish the owners would invest in higher quality/newer beds for guests - it would go a long way.

Beautiful views plenty of space everything you need for a stay in the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I totally enjoyed staying here. The views of the mountains from every room are just beautiful. During our stay, nature surprised us with a late snow storm. The place was made even more beautiful with the snowy cover. The home is spacious and equipped with all you will need . If you want quiet, space , and views ....this is the place for you.
