The Space

Best Casa is a hidden jewel only a block from Taos Plaza. It is part of a historical hacienda style adobe that once housed nuns working at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church. Newly and tastefully renovated, the interior was designed with comfort and convenience in mind, and it features high ceilings, a well appointed kitchen, oak floors, a kiva fireplace, and a cozy living area. An old apple tree and a plum tree stand in a small, grassy courtyard that feels almost Mediterranean in it's serenity. It is located on a quiet one-way street only one block west of the Taos plaza.

Gas range and a large collection of cooking supplies. Nespresso machine with milk frother, French press, drip coffee maker. Toaster oven, panini press. French door refrigerator, microwave. Full size washer and dryer, heated bathroom floor, a gas heating stove and a kiva fireplace. Electric baseboard heater in bedroom, ceiling fans. Premium linens and a down comforter and pillows; an comfortable plush/firm Queen mattress.Full sleeper sofa with memory foam topped mattress. High speed internet, HDTV, DirecTV, Blue Ray/DVD player, surround sound entertainment system, NetFlix streaming, Pandora/Spotify/Apple Airplay ready stereo system. Small wall safe, hair dryer. Large selection of books and games (backgammon, chess, dominoes, Scrabble, Apples to Apples, Old Maid, Memory, Anomia, Bananagrams, cards).

The location of the apartment is one of it's greatest assets.
