This charming southwestern style adobe condo is nestled in the Sangre de Christo mountains with scenic views of the peaceful Valdez Valley. Enjoy all of the amenities and conveniences of nearby Taos (10 minutes), Taos Ski Valley (10 minutes), and the quaint New Mexican village of Arroyo Seco (3 minutes), while enjoying the tranquility offered by this private retreat. Walk out the backdoor and hike into the Sangre de Cristo mountains or enjoy world-class skiing or fly-fishing just minutes away.

The interior has been recently appointed with new furnishings, appliances, linens, flat screen televisions with satellite service, and other amenities to make your stay comfortable. The downstairs is perfect for the whole family to spend time together, as it is open concept and contains the kitchen, living room, dining room, and a full bathroom. Vigas support the beautiful exposed tongue and groove ceilings. A Kiva fireplace and baseboard heat will keep you warm in the winter. Wood is delivered to your door every couple of days. There is a new queen sleeper sofa with a memory foam mattress that is very comfortable. The dining table seats 6 and the bar seats another two. The downstairs closet is stocked with a large video library and there is a DVD/VHS player for your use. There are board games and cards in the cabinet under the flat screen TV. Wi-fi and a telephone (including long distance service) are included. The kitchen is nicely equipped with new pots and pans, dishwasher, refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, coffee maker, blender, garbage disposal, and all dinnerware and flatware. Outside the back door, there are open areas and a playset for kids to play and a deck to enjoy the outdoors.

Upstairs (the parking level) there are two master bedrooms, each with a queen bed and an en suite full bathroom. Each bedroom is equipped with a new flat screen TV with satellite service. Each bedroom has a Kiva fireplace and independently controlled baseboard heat to keep you cozy in the winter. The back bedroom has a balcony/deck with sitting area overlooking Valdez Valley. It is perfect for enjoying the beautiful mountain sunsets! The cool mountain breezes will keep you comfortable in the warmer months. Each bedroom has a large closet and drawers for ample storage. Also, they each have an alarm clock, a hairdryer, and there is an iron and ironing board.

Popular nearby activities include: Winter snow sports (skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiles, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing); warm weather activities (hiking, rod and fly fishing, white water rafting); sightseeing (Taos Pueblo, The Rio Grande Gorge, Carson National Forest, museums, the Earthship biotecture); shopping (Arroyo Seco, art galleries around Taos Square, Bent Street, and local craftsmen); music, libations, and entertainment (Taos Mesa Brewery, KTAOS).

We hope you will enjoy our home away from home as much as we do!

Please note: the condo is in the mountains and winter weather conditions may exist. It is an easy drive to the condo, other than the 0.1 mile driveway that is steep and can be slick. 4 wheel drive and/or snow chains are suggested during the winter months. We occasionally use 4WD when it snows at the condo.

About Scott White

We live in Oklahoma, but have also always felt at home in New Mexico. We love the culture, food, southwestern architecture, and outdoor lifestyle found in Taos.

Scott White purchased this condo in 2014

Why Scott White chose New Mexico

After a long search for the perfect vacation home, we found our condo online and immediately fell in love with this place! Within minutes of seeing the condo, we were ready to make an offer to purchase. Being on the mountainside, winter days are bright and sunny. Summer breezes bring the cool mountain air and the sound of aspen leaves. There is a sense of peace in this place that can't be explained, but must be experienced.

What makes this condo unique

Vigas; Kiva fireplaces in living room and in each of the bedrooms; beautiful unobstructed views of Taos Mountain, Valdez Valley and sunsets; hike out the back door; full kitchen stocked with all dishes and utensils needed for cooking; extensive video library, board games, and card

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great condo in a fantastic location, right at the mouth of the valley. TSV was a very short drive, Arroyo Seco even shorter. We stayed a full week to roam around the area and were able to spend quality time in Taos and Santa Fe in addition to 3 days of snow skiing. We have 14, 8, and 3 year old children who had enough space to roam outside and inside at their leisure. The owner was very receptive and communicated with us throughout the entire process. The condo had everything we needed, just brought food and water. The checkout list was minimal.

Peaceful Scenic Location

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect location in the mountains where it is peaceful and quiet, but only minutes to Taos, Taos Ski Valley, and Arroyo Seco. Really enjoyed the views and scenery from the upstairs deck and outdoor patio area. Scott has thought of everything, as the condo and kitchen were well appointed - shampoo, conditioner, great coffee, etc. The wi-fi worked well. They even have a large video library and a large assortment of board games and cards. This is the perfect set up for family and friends to spend some relaxing time together. We took full advantage of nearby hikes at Wild Rivers recreation center and the Williams Lake hike. We will definitely return again to enjoy the slopes and the New Mexico summer sun!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days here and enjoyed every minute. The condo was as described, was clean, and had everything we needed. Plus, it is in a beautiful spot. All of the information we needed to get to, and then access the condo was provided ahead of time and was very thorough, which made everything really simple. We hope to come back someday!

We found this condo to be very comfortable. It was warm and inviting on our arrival, the kitchen was very well equipped and it is in a great location between skiing and the town of Taos. We would definitely go back!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a long weekend at this wonderful property. We have visited Taos on multiple occasions and enjoy both the town of Taos and the ski valley. Situated roughly half way between both affords equal opportunity to enjoy them to the fullest. The property itself is located up a small hill that upon our arrival was covered in snow, fortunately we had an AWD car so it wasn't an issue for us, but be forewarned - you will need one in winter. The unit is lovely. Once inside you find the bedrooms on the upper level with the front bedroom looking out over the Valdez valley. When we arrived the sun was beginning to set and the entire valley was painted in bright oranges and golds - it was really breathtaking.

The living room, kitchen and dining room are all downstairs and are furnished tastefully and comfortably. A smart TV and wifi offer all the modern comforts of home should you want them. The kitchen is stocked with all the utensils and cooking equipment you could possibly need, and most importantly, it has an easy to use coffee maker. All in all a great condo in a great location in one of the most magical places on earth.

Spacious and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this condo and had a wonderful time. Close enough to Taos, but still a feeling of being in/near nature. Our kids enjoyed finding lizards outside and playing on the nearby play structure. The condo was clean, and we had everything we needed. The owner was very helpful and easy to work with.
