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 New Mexico

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.

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.

Casa Bliss, Taos

  • 4 of 5

The location was great for me. It was beautifully decorated & very clean. The owner & her representative provided very good service. It is close to the Plaza. I found the front door difficult to lock.

Could have been better

  • 3 of 5

My family of six stayed at Casa de Blis.

What we liked:

Great location

Nice decor

Well stocked kitchen

Lots of books to peruse

Problems we encountered:

WiFi undependable

Sofa bed described as "comfy" was very uncomfortable

Air mattress went flat in the night

Management tried to help us with our problems and we appreciated that. We eventually got wi-fi and they provided another air bed. Our main complaint is describing the sofa bed as "comfy". This property would be ideal for up to four people, if they can share the two beds.

Owner's Response: Hello, Thanks so much for your feedback. Wanted to take a moment and address your review! *apologies for the delayed response, I just realized that I can respond to reviews* So glad we were able to resolve the air mattress situation and get you a new one promptly. Sincere apologies for that inconvenience. We were unaware that a previous renter had punctured it. As a result of your feedback, we have created a more efficient wi-fi system! Sorry about the sofa bed but happy to hear that you enjoyed the books, kitchen, and location :) It was a pleasure having you stay!
