Casa de la Valle Luna is a luxurious and charming private residence nestled at the foot of the sacred Sangre de Cristo Mountains, conveniently located midway between the town of Taos and the Taos Ski Valley, near the charming, small town of Arroyo Seco. Opening onto acres of open fields with mountains near and far, Casa de la Valle Luna provides a revitalizing sense of peace and privacy.
A perfect blend of traditional charm and contemporary comfort, Casa de la Valle Luna combines authentic adobe and viga construction, floors of terracotta, brick, walnut, and oak, decorative tilework, and wood-burning Kiva fireplaces, with the modern comforts of radiant heat, hi-speed WiFi, Sonos-controlled music for each room, and satellite-linked HD TV's throughout.
Many say the most truly memorable feature of Casa de la Valle Luna is the expansive and beautifully landscaped patio, featuring an outdoor hot tub, wood-burning fireplace, built-in gas grill, and multiple seating areas. Facing sacred Taos Mountain, surrounded by acres of open fields, and shaded by a massive cottonwood tree and groves of aspen, you will be transported by the sunrise-to-sunset views, ever-changing cloudscape, and enchanting bird-song.
The Main House includes three private suites and a convertible media room/office, each situated in its own wing of the house, and each with its own bedroom, full bathroom (with beautifully tiled, walk-in showers,) and seating/lounge area. The Downstairs Master features a California King bed; the Mountain View Suite and the Patio Suite both have Queen beds; and the convertible media room has an American Leather Queen sofa/sleeper with a shockingly comfortable Tempurpedic mattress. One of the suites offers the option of a steam shower; one a two-person Jacuzzi tub; two have wood-burning Kiva fireplaces; and one includes a private patio. With over 4,500 square feet of indoor living space, the Main House is ideal for three couples, but can comfortably accommodate eight if needed, plus a few kids/young teens on airbeds, or on the large kitchen window seat, or the love-seat in the Patio Bedroom.
For those "Big Chill" communal hangouts:
• The expansive, gourmet Kitchen offers all the conveniences needed to prepare a fabulous meal -- including a 6-burner gas cooktop, double-oven, warming drawer, dishwasher, and massive butcher-block island -- as well as a kitchen nook with window seat, TV, and small computer/task desk.
• The open-plan Living Room and Dining Room provide table seating for eight, a large Kiva fireplace, flexible seating groups, and a game table overlooking the main patio and the mountains.
• The Media Room/Office delivers big-screen, surround-sound viewing for your entire crew, and an office area for desk oriented work.
• The Exercise Room is a dedicated space for workouts, yoga, or stretching, with rubber gym flooring, exercise equipment, and TV.
• The large, 270-degree view Roof Deck satisfies desires ranging from sunset cocktails to fresh air meditation, with a wet bar and indoor table seating in the adjoining Café/Kitchenette.
NOTE: If you need additional space, or just want to indulge yourselves, please see the listing for Casa de la Valle Luna: Main House + Tower Suite. With an additional 900 square feet of indoor space, the Tower Suite offers a heightened level of privacy and luxury for your Taos experience. The Tower Suite may only be rented as an "add-on" to the Main House; it is not included in the rental of the Main House, and it may not be rented by itself.

"You did it! You have successfully married the charm of Taos with the comforts of home. I can't compliment the attention to details enough! It was as if I had stepped into my daydream - a truly warm and welcoming environment."
This is our third trip to Taos, but our first stay in your beautiful house. Thank you so much! This is our favorite house! We plan to return next year! We enjoyed the beauty of the house, its comforts, the mountains and the stars above....all of the nooks and crannies, artwork, pottery, etc. What a restful, beautiful place to spend a week. The setting (even including the rooster down the road) is enchanting. Thank you!
What an amazing stay! We didn't want to leave the house at all during our stay. It was so relaxing, with all the comforts of home. We plan to come back again!
Kalo and Dan Los Angeles, CA
We appreciate your beautiful home so much. We enjoyed skiing the slopes at Taos Mountain, eating ice cream at Taos Cow, and shopping in Taos Plaza. Each evening we came home to a beautiful, cozy home. We will be back - in the summer next time!!!
Most amazing Christmas holiday, much of it spent enjoying the warmth and joy of your home. Love the tiles, the fireplaces, the textiles, the radiant heat … so charming! Days spent skiing, evenings cooking, the hot tub nights with a star canopy. We made tamales for Christmas dinner - a first! Much Joy, Many Thanks!

This is our first stay here, but it won't be our last! We had a great time. It was so relaxing to enjoy the late afternoon on the back patio under the wonderul old cottonwood tree. What a gorgeous view! The house is beautifully appointed and maintained. Very comfortable beds and nice linens - we slept very well. This is such a comfortable home and so quiet because of the thick adobe walls - very nice! We are looking forward to our stay here next year and feel this is the right home for us during our stay in Taos.
Pam and Ron Austin, TX
What a lovely, relaxing time we had in this beautfiful home and vally! There were 3 couples and the house was perfect for us. The other two couple have been coming here for 10+ years and we can understand why. We rarely left the house, content to read, hot tub and have serious discussions around the fire - outside and in! Oh, and eat! We hope to be back next year, far away from the bustle, gridlock and tension of Washington, DC.
Craig and Ana Washington, DC
We had the most amazing time!!! We enjoyed watching the meteor shower from the Hot tub. It was awesome. We filled the hummingbird feeders and watched them every day. Saw two bunnies, two coyotes (one was eating a small rodent), a skunk, and a neighborhood dog. Went for a drive on the Valle Vidal and saw a bear!!! That was awesome!!! The El Salto waterfall was kind of disappointing. We hoped to see elk, but didn't see any. Maybe on the drive home. Dreading going home to the hot Texas weather. We hope to come back soon!!! Thank you for sharing your awesome home! P.S. We really enjoyed the music!
This is a very beautiful home with amazing views and exquisite décor. It made our family feel right at home. Your home had all the amenities we needed and more. We enjoyed the surround sound and the movie and book selection. Thanks for sharing your home with us.
Our return after renovations has been great! This is our 6th year to return to this house from Colorado. We are 3 couples from Loveland, Denver, Gunnision who love to share this paradise together every year. We hope to continue our trek each year until we can't find it anymore. THANK YOU FOR THE WELL PLANNED ADDITIONS AND CHANGES!!!

We've travelled to Taos many times, have stayed at different vacation houses, but this is the best thus far for its location and appointments. Thank you for sharing.
-Oro Valley, AZ
We brought our family of 7 and we all had a wonderful, relaxing, inspiring experience! Plenty of space, nice updated kitchen and the view from the dining room…all reasons we will definitely come back to this house! Our favorite part of the house was the exceptionally beautiful patio! The fireplace and hot tub got a lot of use in the crisp evenings. We can't wait to come back during ski season! Loved it!
I have fallen in love with your home. I think this would ba a phenomenal place to have a wedding. The outside flagstone with the large grass area and the long, windowed hallway. Just gorgeous. Great home. I love it! Thanks for the great appliances. The grill is awesome.
-Tom and Megan Paralta, NM
We are ending a glorious month here in Arroyo Seco and this house. We have been coming to this house on and off for 10 years and feel so fortunate each time we get here. We always love it! The house was spectacular, once again, and provided a wonderful homebase for us to have great adventures -- big and small. Some days we never left "the compound" and just enjoyed the views, air, sunset, rainbows, hot tub. Everything about the house was great. We hope we have soaked up enough dry, crisp, cool air to return to the humidity of North Carolina. And, hopefully, we can return next year.
-Emily and Family Durham, NC
Thank you for opening up your beautiful home. This is now our favorite place to stay in Taos; can't wait to come back. The view is just wonderful! All the amenities made us feel right at home.
