About This Listing
Cute, cozy and compact cottage that has all you need--queen bed + queen mattress in the loft, a private patio with stunning views and the quiet of a country setting at Los Pajaritos.
Our light filled Country Cottage is a stone's throw from our house an--Los Pajaritos and sports a sleeping loft with a queen sized mattress and a separate bedroom with a queen sized bed. One bath with shower, + a sunny living/dining room wrapped in glass and with views of Taos Mountain and Picuris Mountain complete the picture. In terms of the setting, we are a short hop into town, but like a recent guest said, the coyotes visit daily--the other day they spotted the magpies chasing one. And our outdoor cats come over to visit even though they are not allowed in. And as a guest recently noted--we do have A/C for this scorching June. We have just added a beautiful and private outdoor patio just so you can relish and drink in the big Taos skies day or night. Sunrises and sunsets are yours to enjoy and come nightfall, all those stars look close enough to pick out of the sky. If you stay with us please use the directions provided; do not attempt to find us via mapquest or a smartphone.
Lots of land to walk on; snow shoes; some bikes; any cooking utensils and equipment that we might have to lend. Outdoor grilling- yes. A fire pit - yes
Interaction with Guests
Happy to help you navigate our town, our valley and northern NM. We have lots of books on our area and love to guide visitors to restaturants, hiking, rafting, skiing and galleries.
A quiet country neighbourhood on the edge of Taos and Ranchos de Taos with big, wide-open views of the mountains all around. The acequia del rio chiquito runs by and in the evenings in the summer you will hear the splash of water on its way down to the fields.
You will need a car to get to us and to get around.
Other Things to Note
The cottage comes with a washer and dryer and if grilling outside is your thing we are happy to bring one over.

Had an excellent 3 night stay at Sanjay's place, a very well equipped cottage with great views and with the feeling of been out in the country, yet very close to town. Well stocked with kitchen basics and more. We would definitely return to Sanjay's in the future but for longer next time.
Sanjay's cottage was just what we were looking for. It was exactly as described and very convenient to restaurants, shopping, etc. We'll definitely stay again next time we're in town. We didn't get a chance to meet Sanjay but he was very quick to respond to our questions. Top notch host!
Great host, cute cottage. Located in a rural setting just out of town, the cottage is a perfect retreat for a relaxed and restful stay. It's well equipped with everything you need and has a great view of the mountains. Sanjay is the perfect host - very helpful and knowledgable about the area. If you have a car, this is a great place to stay for a visit to Taos.
We had such a great stay at Sanjay's cottage! Everything was exactly as described. Sanjay was incredibly warm and welcoming. He gave us great suggestions for how to make the most of our time in Taos. When we come back to the area we will most definitely stay here again AND recommend the cottage to everyone we know.
Sanjay's house is in an exceptionally beautiful spot, is well-appointed, and has an extremely comfortable bed. We found Sanjay to be an excellent host and a remarkable human.
