You will enjoy forever mountain views from the large, private walled courtyard, that includes several seating areas and a BBQ grill.
Enter through the front door to view a charming kiva fireplace warming the living and dining room areas. This living space features original Native American artwork, giving our guests a unique Taos experience.
The living room includes a TV with access to Netflix and other program options. A laptop is provided for internet access, along with WiFi.
The kitchen is fully equipped to handle any kind of meal, with quality cooking utensils and appliances including toaster, blender, coffee maker and microwave oven.
Both bedrooms have queen size beds with fluffy pillows, comforters and extra blankets/throws.
A covered carport is attached to the home and available for parking.
Michael and I have lived in Taos for over 30 years. Our daughter, Alex was born and raised here, and we have enjoyed becoming a part of the community. We love Taos and enjoy sharing our home and knowledge of the area with friends and family. We ski, hike, bike and have 2 dogs, Jack and Gracie and a cat, Kitty. We enjoy traveling and discovering new places and faces.
Joanne Crass purchased this house in 2008
The private courtyard provides a restful oasis from a day of exploring Taos. In the summer, the courtyard is alive with flowers, trees and birds. In the winter, enjoy the quiet contemplation of the snow capped mountains.
The very welcoming owners greeted us upon our arrival to their perfect home away from home in the gorgeous Taos area. The extremely clean home had everything we needed for our week long stay. The home is perfect for a family of 4 with 2 very comfy queen beds, cozy bedding and even gorgeous views from each room. I will forever miss the courtyard area where I spent every morning enjoying my coffee or breakfast and the magical sunsets sipping the perfect cocktail. We were in town for hockey tournament, with the home being less than a 2-minute drive to rink - this was a huge plus. Had we not had the hockey tournament bring us to Taos, I would still choose to stay at this lovely home for any return visit. It is in a very quiet, safe neighborhood away from the traffic of the plaza area. I was able to take walks in the neighborhood, with the beautiful mountains in every direction I looked. Had the fortune of seeing a hot air balloon on one of my morning walks, breathtaking... The home was very warm with radiant heating. We had some cold nights and never felt cold in the home. Very cozy and warm. We loved opening up the window blinds and being able to see the clear views of the surrounding area homes and mountains in the near distance from all rooms of the home. The kitchen was well stocked for meal preparation (I cook many meals while on vacation, so this was very much appreciated). The home was very close to many stores for groceries (Albertson's, Smith's, Walgreen’s, Wal-Mart). A bit of a further drive (10 minutes or so) will put you to a couple of the wonderful natural grocers on the north end of Taos (Cids and Taos Market, which we loved!) The plaza/shopping all within a 5-10 min drive. The home is perfectly situated for taking many day trips, which we thoroughly enjoyed while we were there: *Driving the Enchanted Circle (Taos to Questa, then Red River, over to Eagle's Nest Lake and down to Angel Fire and back to Taos). This was around a 6-hour trip with the stops we made. Headed out around noon and made it back to the home just in time for sunset. Very scenic drive going in and around the mountain ranges. *Ojo Caliente Mineral Spa - around an hour drive from the home. $20 for a day pass to spa and you will love it, so relaxing. *Hike down the side of the Rio Grande Gorge to Manby Hotsprings (also called Black Rock) - 30-minute drive from the home. So much to do and explore. We will definitely be back! Thank you, Joanne! :)
Spotless and cozy! The views, the kiva, the well stocked kitchen, great linens, and great hosts all made for a great stay in Taos. We will definitely keep this place on our top list. Thanks for offering such a warm and inviting home away from home.
The property was very clean and had everything you would need for a quick stay or a long stay. The owners are nearby and very accommodating. The small kiva fireplace was a huge hit with us and plenty of firewood. I would stay there again without hesitation
We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed this great property. The house is located on the edge of town with fantastic mountain views and covered parking. The owners had everything ready and the house was spotless. We appreciated the comfy beds, laundry room and a fully equipped kitchen. I would highly recommend staying here and plan to return.
My family really enjoyed staying at Casa Del Pajaro. We mainly were in Taos for skiing but really got to enjoy the town and Pueblo as well. It was only about a 35 minute drive to Taos Ski Valley or Angel FIre. Joanne and Mike had the place nicely decorated with a small Christmas Tree and lights. The kitchen was well stocked as we like to eat-in most nights when on ski trips. However, We were minutes from downtown Taos and enjoyed a few evenings out. Kiva fireplace was nice with well seasoned firewood provided with the unit.
Highly recommend staying here if you decide to visit Taos. Joanne and Mike know the area well and can provide advice on many things to do and see.

My husband and I spent a lovely weekend in Taos at Cada de Pajaro. The Casa is well situated very close to town, yet I you are also in the land of big New Mexico sky. The stars are brilliant at night and it's so peaceful and quiet. JoAnne has anticipated every need in setting up the Casa. It's comfortable, charming, and spotless. Highly recommended!
