    Mesa - Blueberry Hill - 6 miles to Taos village, 14 miles to Taos Ski Valley

    Designed and built by a local Taos artist, Casa Tortuga is a serenely contemporary interpretation of southwest themes, combining the traditional elements of vigas and kiva fireplace with original contemporary design.

    Once inside the large foyer entry, you will experience the joy of absolute privacy. Although there are a couple of neighboring homes along the private driveway approach,

    The open living areas flow to a secluded back patio of red sandstone and a colorful portico with sweeping panoramic views looking down on a view of wild sagebrush arroyos, across the green pastures of Lower Ranchitos, past the town of Taos in the distance to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the background.

    The very private hot tub is graced by a flowing adobe privacy wall and redwood deck. Tasteful original art abounds inside and outside of this gracious two master bedroom / two bathroom Taos vacation retreat.

    The two master bedrooms are located on opposite sides of the house offering sound and visual privacy between the two.

    Sure to please the most discriminating of tastes, Casa Tortuga has been a favorite of multiple returning guests for many years. Casa Tortuga's dedicated owners, provide a major upgrade each and every year.

    Reserve Casa Tortuga for a lodging experience that will end up being a lifetime a thrill to share memorable photos with friends and family.

    Beautiful house! The house is located in a beautiful location. The views are breathtaking. The house is decorated inside with a lot of love. The caretaker, Jan is just amazing. The he house was very clean. We got snowed down during our stay and we couldn't drive our van up the hill. Even though it was Christmas, Jan got someone to plow the road for us and helped us out. We would for sure stay here again next time we are in Taos. - A.R.

    We had a fabulous stay at Casa Tortuga. Our visit was much too short, so we'll be looking to book a longer stay next time. The house was immaculate. When the house got a bit stuffy, we called Sondra to ask for a second fan, and she promptly responded to accommodate our request. We spent much time on the patio enjoying the view. A summer storm moved through on our last evening and graced us with a gorgeous rainbow to bid us a gentle adieu. Just lovely. - A. Binford

    Perfect ! Loved the house. Perfect. My girlfriend and her two daughters and I spent a wonderful week here. Great kitchen. Beautiful views. Incredible art all through the house. Ideal location. Could not possibly have been better. Enjoyed gourmet meals on the porch. Read, relaxed, hiked, biked. Thanks for a great time. - G. Brewer

    Great place to stay, relax and enjoy Taos. If you come to Taos, put Casa Tortuga on your list of where to stay. It is absolutely a great house to stay in and unwind, relax and enjoy the peacefulness around. Everything is set up nicely here for one to feel at home when returning from a hike in the mountains or from fly fishing in nearby Red River. Or, just staying in and enjoying the day around the house with the windows open and enjoying the breezes blowing through. Casa Tortuga is a real treat and I highly recommend a stay here! - X. Chavez

    A great place to stay! We loved the house and the location. It was very comfortable for my family of five and we loved the atmosphere. The location was great for skiing and visiting Taos. The property was very clean and well-maintained; the Caretaker was very helpful and responsive. We highly recommend this home and hope to be back ourselves for another visit. - P. Dooley

    Awwesome home. My daughter & I loved everything about the house. The views were spectacular and the home had a very inviting feel to it. If we return to Taos next year, we're going to try and book it without doing any checking on any other property. We loved it that much! - P. Franks

    Spectacular views. Dave at premiere properties was great to work with. Open floor plan, private feeling, Southwest art, and the best views we've ever had add up to an excellent choice for us. - T. Arestad

    We rented this same home 7 years ago for guests at our wedding. We wanted to stay here then. Casa Tortuga was better than we remembered it. We don't come to Taos unless we can stay at one of your properties. - D. Dickson

    Great house with awesome artwork and furnishings. From the views to the nicely furnished house with beautiful artwork throughout (watch out if you have kids), everything was more than we expected. - J. Conrady.

    I felt completely satisfied at Casa Tortuga - every night a grand sunset, every morning a quiet, mysterious beginning; both enhanced by sitting in the pergectly situated hot tub. It's been a long time since I've felt so connected to the natural world. Right at my doorstep were billowing cummulus clouds, distant rain columns, coyotes and humming birds, towering mountains, rolling sagebrush hills and green, green pastures. I communed with all these every day - Casa Tortuga was my sanctuary and I was comforted by all I saw before me. - J. Walker

    My husband and I highly recommend a stay at Casa Tortuga. The home is comfortably outfitted from the kitchen to the bathrooms. The artwork and library of books also made us feel "right at home". We enjoyed the wonderful vistas, watching the quail, hummingbirds and listening to the coyotes at night. I knew this was the property I wanted to stay at as soon as I saw the web site photos. My husband and I felt grateful that the property was available for the vacation time we were seeking. I spoke with several people at Premiere Properties prior to the rental who not only put my mind at ease (having never rented from Premiere), but were also extremely customer service oriented....thank you for that! Also, kudos to the owners for sharing this beautiful property. - With appreciation, Kathy and David H., St. Louis, MO

    We had a wonderful week at Casa Tortuga. Everything about this home was spot on. The house is beautifully decorated with great amenities. The location is perfect - plenty of privacy but just a short drive into town. We took full advantage of the grill - hubby loved - the projection screen - hubby also loved watching one of his favorite movies, Blow Up, star gazing from the hot tub, waking up to the mountain view - I'm ready to go back right now. Thanks for sharing this little piece of paradise. - L. Frith

    We had a great time in Casa Tortuga! We enjoyed the artwork throughout the house, and all of the other décor. Our favorite things were the hot tub and the home theater. Both of these were perfect after skiing all day. The house has a lovely view of the mountains, and we really enjoyed our stay here. Thanks, - The Grahams, Tx
