Arroyo Seco - Deer Mesa - Half way between Taos, New Mexico and Taos, New Mexico Ski Valley - 10 miles in either direction

Casa Vistas, one of Taos Premiere Properties very private and secluded Taos vacation rentals boasts Million Dollar views and total peace and tranquility. There are nearby neighbors shielded by tall pines.

Built in 1999, this classic adobe three-bedroom, two-bath home is the epitome of charm and artfully-stated elegance. New, sparkling clean, and made of all natural authentic materials, the floors are handsome Mexican saltillo terra-cotta tile, the ceilings are natural aspen tongue-and-grove supported by traditional wood vigas. The interior walls feature soft, flowing, rounded plaster lines with a lovely sculptured kiva fireplace in the living room.

Huge picture windows admit lots of light, winter warmth, and spectacular views of the Taos Mountain Range. The furnishings are tastefully southwestern. A cheerful and complete kitchen with breakfast bar has custom cabinets, Italian tile, and is fully equipped for all your cooking needs.

Located between town and Taos Ski Valley, this exceptional location brings you up close to nature. The area is known as Deer Mesa due to the frequent sightings of deer and elk. The property overlooks the one million acre Carson National Forest (see top panorama) and is surrounded by mature pinion, pine, and juniper trees.

If you want to get away from it all and bask in Taos, New Mexico splendor, come and vacation at Casa Vistas. You will want to come back again and again.

For guests concerned with summer temperatures - which are always moderate with only 8 to 10 days in the upper 90's and one or two days at 100.

In the owner / designer's words:

"Two upstairs bedrooms have ceiling fans, most windows have sun shades.

I know this is more technical than the information you are asking for, but I designed this house with both natural heating and cooling
foremost in its design.

1) Exterior walls are 14 inch think adobe walls which provide a 12 hour delay between the days heat and nights cool temps reaching the interior of the house and provides a large thermal mass.
2) South windows have an overhang which allows winter sunlight in to warm the interior while shading the higher summer sun.
3) East and west facing windows use a special heat mirror glass that rejects the sun's radiant heat while letting visible light in.
4) The concrete slab is 12 inches thick throughout and 24 inches thick near the south facing windows to provide additional thermal mass

I've been in the house when the outside temperature was 100 degrees and felt very comfortable."

From Premiere: "All of Taos keeps their windows open at night to allow cool air to build and close / cover windows during the day to keep the cool temps going and hot air out. Works like magic.

4 wheel or chains required for 2 gentle 20 degree short slopes that can be the last to be plowed on snowy days.

A Thanksgiving to remember. Staying at Casa Vistas was magical! Arriving just before Thanksgiving everything was dusted in white. This house is very special, very Taos, exceptionally clean, tastefully decorated and the views...well you will have to see for yourself. The memories we have are priceless. From having a mule deer buck eating breakfast with us every morning (he was on the other side of a picture window), to viewing falling stars (10 total) from the hot tub each night, priceless sunsets and sunrises (get up early with those cameras!, Easy access to Taos or Taos Valley Ski area was wonderful. Arroyo Seco, a few minutes away was such a treat.... Exceptional privacy, yet everything is minutes away. We cannot wait to return. - L. French

We love this place and want to return. This is not our first time here and hopefully will not be our last to this property! We love this place! The first stay was 3 years ago. This year we brought 3 generations of our family and plan to be back next year. We love the location and the property has been respectably maintained. - D. Rains

A Par Excellence Property. Casa Vistas is another wonderful home from Premiere Properties that exceeds the pictures and description. There is no way to accurately portray the panoramic views or the stillness of the forest. No way to describe the changing colors of the mountains from sunrise through pop-up showers to alpen glow sunsets. There are not enough pictures to catalog the interesting artwork and charming decor details throughout the house. The comfortable furnishings found inside and the comforting relaxation afforded on the outside decks and hot tub can barely be conveyed by words. Simply put, our stay at Casa Vistas was excellent in all aspects. - S. Allen

Your home is beautiful. The best thing about New Mexico is coming to your home after horseback riding, hiking and playing in the woods. Your home is the best! - Jacob Family, Grapevine, TX

We will miss the view in the early morning and most of all the snowstorm and the hot tub. The house is wonderful and comfortable. Wonderful pictures and enjoyed sitting around the fireplace. - The Justin’s, Rockwall, TX

We’ve stayed at your house in the winter and the summer and we can’t decide which is better! After an epic day of skiing in Taos, a rafting trip, or wandering the galleries, we love most coming back to Casa Vista to relax in the hot tub and watch the mountains turn crimson with the incredible sunsets. It is truly a unique experience not to be missed. - The Plater’s, Winter Park, FL

We’ve been coming to Northern NM and Southern Colorado for years. This home is the nicest that we’ve stayed in. The views won us over. One of the few vacations we’ve had that we felt rested when we left. We hope to return. - Brandon Family, Childress, TX

This is a wonderful vacation house. We travel a lot, but have never stayed anywhere with such a spectacular view. We will miss the stars from the upper deck! - Sullivan Family, Brookeville, Maryland
