About Meredith (Owner) Onsite property manager in Taos is Zili)
Hi! I am a singer/songwriter/pianist currently living in Nashville, TN. Taos is home to me, it's such a magical & beautiful place! But my current work is in TN. I love my home and enjoy visiting when I can. Taos is such an amazing place to recharge and take a step back from the chaos of life. I cherish my reprieves at 'home' for inspiration and to focus on songwriting. That's why I describe it as an Oasis. And Blis is my middle name (hence the spelling ;) Also, this house has been a joyful place for both myself and friends! Feel free to drop a line if you have any questions.
Meredith (Owner) Onsite property manager in Taos is Zili) purchased this Townhouse in 2009
Why Meredith (Owner) Onsite property manager in Taos is Zili) chose Taos
I designed it as a vacation home for myself. I set it up to be a place where one can, "get away from it all." The location is super close to town, but also nestled on a quiet street so you can escape crowds, noise when there are local events. Also, it's a small row of 6 townhouses (mine is an end unit) with lovely & quiet neighbors. And they are also friendly if you need anything. Kitchen is fully stocked with a huge island for cooking.
What makes this Townhouse unique
Library, Piano, Desk Area for work- but it folds up and looks like a cabinet if you don't need it. Amazing Skylights & Cathedral ceilings. Taos Center for Natural Healing is literally steps away. It's an amazing place for massages, acupuncture and other alternative healing treatments. I also love having Baskin-Robbins right on the corner (less than quarter of a mile). It's a lovely little stroll to take at night before you settle in. The yard is zeroscaped with flagstone (porch, path, and little rock table) with an sweet view of Taos Mountain. You can also see the sunsets from the side windows and the yard. Taos sunsets are gorgeous! And there's a great view of the mountain from the front windows.

The property was covered in ants. The beds were not comfortable.

I wish you had reached out to myself or the onsite manager regarding these issues! I was very surprised and concerned to hear that there were ants on the property. After seeing your notes I immediately reached out to the cleaning company. They assured me there were no signs of ants upon preparing the place or after your departure. I am so sorry that you had an issue during your stay. Once again, we would have done our best to resolve it immediately if we had known.
Home away from home.
We booked it as a 3 Bedroom but it is not quite a 3 Bedroom. However it is a 1 Master bedroom w/ chest of drawers & shelves in it with 2 more queen size beds upstairs in a huge particelly closely loft. There is a full size bathroom & a piano upstairs ! No chest of drawers, but some selves. Downstairs in living room we found that couch also is a sofa bed & the other couch is big enough to sleep another. Downstairs bathroom only has shower but holds washer& dryer. The kitchen & dining was equipped with what we needed. Our note in guess book was very positive. We loved our stay. The house is very comfortable & it could sleep more than 6. It is very spacious. Just let people know it not traditional Bedrooms
Spacious yet cozy
Casa De Blis is a very serene escape; we love every visit we make to this wonderful home. The remodeled upstairs bedroom is particularly welcoming, and the open spaces and natural lighting during the day are very welcome. Easy access to everything you need in Taos. Definitely will keep coming here! :-) Thanks for hosting us, Meredith!!
One issue was the inaccurate description of sleeping spaces. We had one very comfortable bed, one bed that was so-so, and that was it. There were four of us. One of our party slept the first night on the sofa bed, which was uncomfortable enough that she really didn't sleep much at all. And the second night, she tried the air mattress, which deflated in the middle of the night, and even though she reinflated it several times, it lost air, so she had to return to the very uncomfortable couch. The owners/manangers should have left instructions for how to use the mattress if there were special considerations. This experience was unacceptable. You advertised places for six to sleep, but our party of four was not well-served. And we paid the high Christmas price. The downstairs bath was dirty, especially around the baseboards, and the toilet clogged the second day badly. No amount of plunging could remedy it. Some kind of small black insect was crawling near the baseboards in the downstairs bath and on the kitchen counter. And the lock box combination and the WiFi codes the host sent were incorrect, causing unnecessary problems (like standing around in the bitter cold to take screen shots of the lock box). Lots of crumbs in the refrigerator didn't make for confidence in the level of care. For the price, I expected a better experience. It was my first time with VRBO. I am not impressed.
We strive our best to serve every guest and I am sorry that your expectations were not met with satisfaction. I wish you had called the onsite manager regarding the toilet - we would have sent someone to fix it. And apparently there was damage to the air mattress that we were unaware of prior to your stay - had we known about this issue - the manager would have brought over a replacement. Now that we know, it has been replaced with a brand new model. I have brought your concerns about the crumbs and downstairs bathroom immediately to the attention of our cleaning staff. They have a top reputation and I’m not sure what happened. Again, if this had been brought to our attention, we would have remedied it immediately. I do apologize sincerely that these inconveniences disrupted your stay!
Comfortable with beautiful views!
We enjoyed our stay very much. The property is a 2br townhouse, with a loft master bedroom and another downstairs, each with a full bath. We were two couples and everyone was comfortable. Nice open kitchen. There is an amazing view of the Sangre de Cristo mountains from the back yard. It's right off Paseo Del Pueblo, the main road through town, and close to the square but not so close that traffic was ever a problem. Recommended!
Spacious house, good location
The house was located in a good location, close to restaurants and grocery stores. The house had everything we needed for a weeklong stay and it was very clean. All we had to buy were our groceries. We were there with our 2 boys, 9 year old and 4 year old, and they liked having their little area in the loft. It was very convenient that it had 2 full bathrooms. The only negatives were that the bed and couch were not very comfortable and the downstairs shower is tiny.
