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 townhome 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 townhome 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.

Luxurious and restful

  • 5 of 5

This is an ideal place for R & R, with the added convenience of being close to town and adventures. The amenities in the kitchen are great and the main bedroom bed is soooo comfortable, with fluffy blankets and lots of extra pillows. The combination of light streaming through the skylights and the plump massage chair make for super relaxing afternoons. The owner is also really friendly and responsive to questions. It's just a great energy place, I'd definitely stay here again.

Disappointments

  • 1 of 5

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.

Comfortable with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great View, Wonderful Location, Excellent Neighbors!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa De Bliss for 7 days and couldn't have been happier. All of the amenities of home. The home was beautiful, warm, and had such wonderful décor. The neighbors were very friendly and sociable. The location of the home is ideal for those wanting to be in the middle of town without ANY of the traffic or bustle. Liz was extremely helpful and very sincere. Cant wait to stay again.

Thanksgiving stay

  • 5 of 5

What a nice home and owner! Very well maintained and equipped. Meredith was so accommodating with some changes we had and she was also fast in replying to message. Our stay was only 2 days, but we were able to get explore Taos pretty well. We went to the small casino, hot water spring, Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, and to Twirl Toy Store. Perfect little home to stay in when making a quick trip to Taos. Would totally recommend staying at the Casa De Blis!

Spacious house, good location

  • 4 of 5

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.
