Town - 3 blocks to Taos Town, 18 miles to Taos Ski Valley, Easy walk to town, Historic property listed on National Historic Register, Professionally landscaped enclosed yard

"Casa Carlos" located in the romantic adobe Village of Taos, New Mexico is a unique and very special "National Historic Register" property within easy walk to the Taos Plaza with shops, galleries, eateries, Thursday evening live music and summer festivals. The original casita was authentically restored and beautifully landscaped in the 1990's by its "then owner" and founder of the now famous El Monte Sagrado Spa and Resort in Taos, NM. The interior, exterior and grounds are methodically tended to making this home a treasure for returning guests who call Casa Carlos their "home away from home".

A rare find with enclosed back yard and tranquil water feature pond, trickling water, shade trees and grass is a favorite draw fpr returning guests.

The current owners have poured additional love and care into making this a very special lodging destination by adding upscale furniture and furnishings, flat screen TV and Blue-ray for movie buffs.

An easy stroll to town and Taos Plaza shops, restaurants and galleries enables guests to come and go with ease and freedom from driving and parking the car.

Historically, Casa Carlos was part of an adjacent property owned by Oscar Berninghaus who was one of the 8 original founders of the Taos Art Colony. Oscar lived in the larger home and used the casita as his studio in the 1920's. The studio was much later named Casa Carlos after Oscar's son "Charles". The Harwood Museum (an easy walk) is host to many works of Oscar Berninghaus and of his 7 Taos Art Colony founding buddies. Guests are urged to take the historic walk and ponder the original works of the original owner of this special casita.

Very warm and cozy. This is one of the nicest for rent by owner places I have stayed. It is very warm and cozy. The backyard is a sanctuary. The place is also a short walk to the plaza. - M. Pendleton

Beyond expectation! From the moment I set foot in Casa Carlos, I knew I was in for a relaxing treat. The decor is lovely and soothing; the furniture is comfortable; the mattress is nice and firm; the linens are fluffy. The kitchen is well-stocked with cooking implements and dishes. The dishwasher and w/d work great. The garden tub is spacious and the shower has plenty of water pressure. The hot tub hit the spot, and the backyard is great for relaxing with a cup of tea or coffee while listening to the fountain gurgle. (As a geriatric provider, I would note that this is not a walker or wheelchair appropriate site due to steps leading down into the casa as well as bathtub accessibility; not a criticism, just an observation.) I hope to return next year! - C. Kenny

Perfect in every way. The unit was beautiful and the courtyard in the back was an added bonus! We enjoyed the hot tub and quiet evenings listening to the lovely water feature in the extremely well landscaped courtyard. The size of the unit was just perfect for the two of us. It even had a desk where I could set up my laptop. The kitchen was well equipped and a pleasure to work in although breakfast was the only meal we cooked. We took advantage of all the great dining spots in Taos and enjoyed the great food and great service. The management company that takes care of this unit is top notch. Everything was clean and well supplied. Taos is a charming little town with lots to do and this unit is within walking distance of the Plaza as well as some museums, galleries, restaurants and shops. I would love to come back and stay longer than 9 nights next year. We loved it! - T. Slaughter

The furnishings are beautiful and make for a very comfortable stay. It's a short walk to the historic plaza where you can find just about anything your heart desires. If'd ove to come back and stay. - A. Camarota

This was our second stay at Casa Carlos. We are enchanted by Taos and try to get there often. The current owners have put a lot of thought and work into remodeling the bathroom and the delightful back garden. Since the Casa is so close to town, we can leave the car and walk to everything in the historic town center. The management company does outstanding work to keep the home spotless and kitchen cupboards well supplied. A magic place for two to get away and experience adobe life - T. Martin

A magical Christmas! Casa Carlos is even better in person than in pictures. It is a charming and well appointed vacation home that is totally private and quiet yet conveniently located to everything. The home is small but lives much larger than it looks. There were 2 adults and 2 teens staying for a week and we never felt crowded. The kitchen is bright, lovely and comfortable for real cooking. We enjoyed hot tubbing in the snowy backyard after skiing. The home was decorated with a Christmas tree when we arrived which we thought was a very nice touch and on one of our first days the owners dropped a bottle of wine on our doorstep on their way through town. Lovely! - J. Hopper

Amazing! Try as we might to make things difficult, ya'll made it a fantastic vacation. Great spot just far enough away from the square to be quiet and comfortable yet within easy walking distance....the house was charming and the backyard a small slice of heaven! We'll stay longer next year! - T.. Hotchkiss

Brand new on the market after a 3 year respite, Casa Carlos has new owners and soon guests will be coming and sending their reviews. Till then, Premiere wants you to know that Carlos was extremely popular for 4 full years and we are excited to have "him" back! You too will be delighted should you choose Casa Carlos as your lodging option. - Premiere Properties, LLC Team
