About this listing

The space

Casa Betita is a historic adobe dating back to the mid 1800s. Casa Betita was home to generations of the same family until 2007. Since then, the house has been completely restored offering the finest elements of the 21st century with the charm, colors, textures and décor of true New Mexico including hand plastered walls, Kiva fireplaces, Vintage rugs and the artwork of local artists.

One can hear the waters of the Rio Pueblo and listen to coyotes gathering in the evening. The neighborhood horses and one donkey can be heard calling to each other and occasionally one might hear the bells from the church down the lane.

A pleasant 15-minute walk past horses, alfalfa fields and through back lanes to Taos Historic Plaza, shops and galleries, this is a home you will want to return to year after year. Taos is a year round destination offering breathtaking views, intriguing history and intimate privacy making for the ultimate relaxing and healing getaway.

Taos is a special place of many stories. History is rich here, and the journey of each visitor under the vast canopy of sky adds another layer to the richness of the place.

Experience Taos for yourself. You will be changed and fulfilled.

Loved staying here. Close to town but yet just far enough away to feel private. The place looked better than the photos. I only regret we couldn't stay longer!

Melissa did a great job in providing us with detailed directions on getting to Casa Betita. The property was even better than shown in the pictures. Charming historic architecture combined with updates of modern appliances, lighting and impressively stocked kitchen. This property is a destination in itself. Far and away the best property in the neighborhood.

Casa Betita is an ideal oasis. I've traveled the world and have not been to a place that felt so perfectly right for a couple of quiet days as this casita did. Melissa's pictures and description of the property represent it EXACTLY as you will find it. It is wonderfully appointed with great art, all the kitchenwares you would ever need, fantastically soft linens and great outdoor spaces. Melissa was a very thoughtful host and left us a lovely bottle of local wine that we liked so much that we purchased some to bring home. She graciously provided some dining recommendations before we arrived and we made reservations at Le Mezze and had the grilled romaine salad and the cardamon donuts on her advice and they were both beyond delicious. She also has very detailed recommendation books at the casita (as well as clear instructions no things in the home that need explaining - i.e. the kiva fireplaces, the hot tub). And, we also very much appreciated the laminated map that showed the walking route into the Taos Plaza which was a delightful 15 min stroll each way. At night we could hear the river and the coyotes and could not have had a more relaxing or delightful stay on our sojourn. I can't wait to return to Casa Betita as soon as I possibly can.

Melissa User ProfileMelissa is a superhost.

I live and work in the San Francisco Bay Area and sometimes in Northern New Mexico. My parents and grandparents were all born and raised in New Mexico and Casa Betita (named after my grandmother Betta with whom I spent many childhood summers in Santa Fe) is the realization of a lifelong dream.
I am an artist, writer and producer. Avid reader, yogi, world adventurer. My 10 year old Jack Russell Dot is my sidekick. Skiing Taos Mountain is a joy and a thrill.
