Fully furnished 1-bedroom apartment within walking distance of the best shopping, galleries and restaurants in Taos. Quiet and peaceful--perfect place to unwind and discover the charm of northern New Mexico.
The apartment is cozy and comfortable for 1-2 people. There's an intimate patio area with bistro table--perfect for your first cup of coffee in the morning. Or if you prefer, take your cuppa to the front courtyard where you can hear the splash of the fountain and watch the birds, bees and butterflies come for a morning bath.
It's all about location--you're within a short walk of the plaza yet in a very private and secluded getaway. Many guests remark that they are able to park their cars in the off-street area and do all their exploring by foot.
There's a larger grocery just a block away--even a pizza takeaway within walking distance! For skiers, the Taos Ski Valley shuttle stops a short block away on Paseo del Pueblo Sur.
If you're visiting in the winter, we have a small and extremely efficient Norwegian wood burning stove that adds to the ambiance as well as the coziness of the apartment.
The bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed (new mattress as of April 2014) yet is large enough to accommodate suitcases without feeling cramped.
The bathroom is small but very convenient with a large walk in shower with Talavera tile.
The kitchen is fully furnished so you can decide whether to take advantage of Taos' numerous first rate restaurants or stay at home and keep life simple. There's a full-size refrigerator and stove as well as the usual smaller appliances (toaster, hand mixer, blender--for the inevitable margaritas in the patio!).
There is a shared washer and dryer (free of charge) just 10 yards from the apartment.
In the back I have a small Tuff Shed where you can store your bikes, snow shoes, skis or excess luggage--locked and secure!
Interaction with Guests
I love Taos and am always eager to share recommendations and suggestions for places to go and things to do.
I love the location of the apartment because of its proximity to the plaza area. And the grassy green courtyard is a great place to relax and unwind.
If you bring your bikes, you can pedal all around town. Taos' answer to mass transit (the Chile Express!) stops one block from the apartment on Paseo del Pueblo Sur
Other Things to Note
We require a 2 night minimum. In non-peak periods we will attempt to accommodate a single night stay but will require the guest to pay a cleaning fee.
If you have a 4-legged traveling companion contact us for details on appropriate pet owner behaviors while at the apartment.
We do not allow smoking inside the apartment or in the patio area.
Our second time staying in #10 and it is becoming our 'home away from home'. I'm sure we will be back.
We had such a wonderful stay! The condo was exactly as described and more than we had hoped for-the pictures do not do it justice; it is clean, well decorated, and comfortable. Donna's condo has all the modern amenities of a nice motel but so much more - our new "home away from home" in Taos. We were on a family ski trip and it was so nice to have a fully furnished apartment and well-stocked kitchen when travelling with our little 1 year old. Close to everything we needed - most everything was only a few minutes down the street. You can tell this is an older complex both the unit and entire complex is extremely well-maintained. Great experience working with the hostess: Donna sent us a welcoming message with local tips and things to do while in Taos as well as a comprehensive and thorough set of guidelines for use of the condo. You can tell the hosts are extremely organized. We were also pleased at how quickly messages were addressed; all of my questions were answered in just minutes. Needless to say the whole experience was so easy and painless - we will definitely be back our next stay in Taos.
Quaint, clean and beautiful property will all the amenities that one could want! Close to everything! I would definitely return here.
We never actually met Donna in person, but her welcome emails and advice on Taos made us feel right at home! The place was clean, comfortable and convenient. We loved our stay at Taos and would definitely stay at Sonterra again. Your recommendations were all outstanding. Thanks so much Donna!
Donna took great care of us and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Taos. We would definitely stay "with" Donna again.
GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD. We are in the same area as Donna and Don. We needed guest area and this beautiful condo was very appreciated. Our family enjoyed the stay that we booked for them here.
Cozy, clean, quiet, good instructions and communication, kitchen capable for a couple, welcoming! Very nice stay-thank you!
