    As current owners, we are a family from Austria, now living in Texas. We missed a lot from our homeland and then discovered Taos not too long ago. Having read the story of Ernie Blake - the Swiss/German founder of the Taos Ski Valley, who was flying for years over the Rockies to find a location which reminded him of his loved Alps - we fell in love with Taos over a few ski vacations. The combination of world class alpine skiing, excellent restaurants (Taos features among the top ski locations for foodies) and the vivid art scene became too hard to resist.

    Previously owned by an artist / writer, a lot of the art has been retained, adding eclectic charm to a tastefully furnished home. extended by alpine touches - creating an eclectic mix of Taos history.

    In addition to the above list, there also is a dishwasher, large French-door refrigerator, manual Espresso machine (for all the coffee aficionados), Smart TV with paid SlingTV account and the ability to use all your streaming accounts.

    4-6 guests comfortably sleep here with 2 spacious bedrooms and a large Den with a Full memory foam Sleeper Sofa. The Master bedroom offers a walk in shower bathroom. The "guest bedroom" shares a lovely tub/shower bathroom with the den bedroom.

    First time available as a vacation rental – We immediately loved Casa Joya Escondida the first time we took a tour. It is now available as a vacation rental for the first time, and we think you too will feel the same should you choose to stay at Casa Joya Escondida.

    From Premiere: "Great vacations begin with Great Lodging, and that's our job! You will be ever happy for finding this delightful gem.

    Road trip from Lubbock, TX for a couple of days of skiing!! Snowed 24 inches a few days before we arrived so the skiing was excellent! My husband Larry and I along with my son and wife as well as my first grandbabies had a great time! Loved the house. It was perfect! Be Happy! Go Lucky! Maria

    We are a group of gals who meet up every year in hopes of good ski and great company. Although the skiing was subpar this weekend, your place was on point!! So cozy and inviting. Thanks for hosting us! Stephanie

    We are from Denver. We loved your cozy place! Nice to be able to walk to the plaza for shopping and restaurants. The hot tub was great and since I used to live in the Netherlands I really appreaciated the extra special finding of stroopwafel to go with the coffee! Thank you for your hospitality!

    The house is located about a ten minute walk from the town square, which had a ton of perks. We walked to the local shops and we were within a ten minute drive of all the restaurants we went to. Driving to the ski valley from the house was a piece of cake, and the house has plenty of room to store ski equipment. As far as amenities, both the bedrooms were decent sized and the bed I slept on was extremely comfortable. The hot tub was cozy and perfect for relaxing after a long day of skiing. It didn't require too much effort to set it up or to close it back up, which was much appreciated after our long days on the slopes. The floors were heated, which was a nice touch, and there were several fireplaces scattered throughout the house that provided an even cozier atmosphere. The kitchen is a great size and it has all of the supplies you might need to cook meals. Plus the sink is enormous. I had a blast and I will definitely be coming back and recommending this location to my friends and family. - Derek

    Between the heated floors, fully stocked kitchen amenities, spacious bedrooms, clear TVs, and stylish New Mexican decor, I could not have imagined a better stay during my time in Taos, NM. The home is a perfect distance from town and is also a short drive from beautiful hiking, tubing, and skiing locations. Espresso machine was a very nice touch and beds and sofas were very comfortable. I will definitely be back and enjoyed my stay very much! - Amanda R
