About Joanne Crass

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

What makes this house unique

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.

Relaxing, all the comforts you need

  • 5 of 5

A private courtyard with beautiful views for morning coffee or evening cocktails.

The interior is decorated nicely and the corner fireplace was wonderful. This little casita had everything we could have wanted. Quiet location with the owners nearby if we needed anything. I would rent here again and recommend to friends and family visiting the area.

Nicely decorated and furnished with picturesque patio.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very friendly and available for any problems. The property and house were very well maintained and the bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was very well supplied with the needed dishes and cooking utensils including a side by side refrigerator with through the door icemaker. The property is on a paved road and not far from grocery stores, gas stations and the Taos Plaza. The flat screen high definition tv is rather small and you are limited to streaming Netflix and local channels. The local channels did not appear to be in high definition.

Had a great time in this well appointed home. It had all we needed to fix breakfast in the mornings and dinner in the evenings. Our hosts were gracious and accommodating.

Very pleased with rental

  • 5 of 5

The two of us enjoyed staying here for 6 days. First, the owners met us there and walked us through everything to make sure we were comfortable. They were always available to help/answer questions/make suggestions.

Even on vacation we like to cook in a lot of time. The kitchen was very functional. It has all the appropriate dishes, cook ware, etc. It would've been nice to have a few extra items like oil and more seasonings but those are nice-to-haves.

The weather was great so we kept the windows open - including at night. - making for great sleeping. The beds were comfortable.

The little Bluetooth speaker was a nice add. The tv is small but we weren't there to watch tv.

Loved the patio both for enjoying coffee in the morning as well as eating outside in the evening.

The price is fair for what you get - I recommend

Lounging in Taos

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this location for 4 days. The place is very nice right in town but no noise to bother you during your stay. The couple were very nice and available if needed. We didn't use the fireplace as it was in the 90's the whole time we were there. I would certainly stay there again should I return to Taos.
