About Sanjay Poovadan

Look me up

Sanjay Poovadan purchased this house in 1998

Why Sanjay Poovadan chose New Mexico

This was our home for our 4 children. It started out live as an FHA adobe in the early 80's and was expanded. When Marah bought it in 1998 it had been Blue Bird Herb Farm for 2-3 years but it was still a 2 bedroom home. Marah designed and built the second floor addition to make room for the growing family. The 3 boys, the pool table and the mess went upstairs. In 2005 we renovated again, adding decks, patios, new doors and landscaping....and we are still working on the outside.

What makes this house unique

Spacious public spaces with large bedrooms all with views. Two living rooms, one on the main floor and one upstairs means you can have one group playing games and another watching television without crossing wires. Adobe - means quiet.

Tranquil, spacious, scenic, and charming farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights and had a lovely experience making Blirbird Farm our home base. Home spacious with multiple siting spaces and outdoor areas. It's farm house decor and scenic views outside most windows made for a beauty inspired weekend. Close to town. Owner very attentive. I recommend and would stay again.

Family reunion at the Blue Bird Farm

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 adults and 3 children and had plenty of room at the Blue Bird Farm. Everything you could think of was provided and the back yard is large enough for the children to explore. The trip into Taos is short and easy and the back yard deck and hot tub are perfect for evening relaxing. We will be sure to be back.

Tons of space for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house is awesome! Close to the mountains and to go shopping in town. The owners were quick to respond to any questions we had while we were there. The only suggestion we would make is to put a new mattress or memory foam topper in the downstairs master. My parents bought one to use while we were there and it made it a little more comfortable. All in all, a great trip!

Delightful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have enjoyed our stay in Taos more! Our time at Bluebird Farms was great on so many levels from the beautifully decorated comfortable home to the excellent location; we were able to truly relax. Sanjay and Jennifer thought of everything to extend a warm welcome and were very responsive and helpful to questions we had.

We would love to return and could not have been more pleased with our stay.

Felt Like Home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location, the house and its amenities. Wonderful to come back after a day of skiing, relax in the hot tub and enjoy company around the large dining room table.

Perfect Place for a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We rented for our annual family reunion. We have 5 boys, 3 married, and it was a delightful home to have our reunion in. Very spacious and clean. The host was delightful and very attentive to details. We were comfortable with everything we needed to cook and enjoy time together. Close to a variety of activities - we choose rafting as a group. We highly recommend this home and Taos!
