Come and bask in the sunshine and fresh air of Taos, and take in the beautiful light and richness of northern New Mexico. Enjoy the artistry of the intimate studio, and close proximity to the Plaza, the heart of Taos. Hope to see you soon!!

The space

Our private adobe studio has a full bathroom, stocked full kitchen and beautiful architectural features. It is cozy, quaint and comfortable for two people with lovely views! It has a very satisfying full-size IKEA bed with plenty of linens, towels, and a down comforter. Parking is provided on-site, near the casita. Valverde is a quiet neighborhood street, with open-space Sunset Park bordering the western side of the property. It is within walking distance to the Historic Taos Plaza, the world-renown Honuman Temple, and has easy access to shopping, galleries and restaurants. Taos Ski Valley is a 21-mile drive away, or take the Taos Chile Line Shuttle for $1 each way which picks up about 1/2 mile from the Studio. Other nearby attractions include the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, Twirl Toy Store and Playplace, the Kit Carson Home and Museum, Taos Pueblo, the KTAOS Solar Center, the Harwood Museum of Art, the Millicent Rogers Museum, and thousands of acres of National Forrest and hiking/cross country skiing trails. Cid's Market, a natural food grocery store, is also a walkable distance or a short drive away.

We love animals, and allow pets on a case-by-case basis, with a required $15.00 cleaning fee for pet guests. We ask that you respect our space and property and clean up after your pet.
This is also a non-smoking environment. Please do not smoke inside, or near any open doors or windows. Thank you!

Interaction with guests

I am available 24-7 by email, text/phone, or through the airbnb site to address any questions or concerns. I live in Albuquerque, visit Taos often, and have a network of support systems in place to address any immediate needs you may have.

Please respect surrounding tenants and their privacy. The studio shares a thick adobe wall with the main house, so we ask that noise be kept at a reasonable level. We also ask that you clean up after yourselves when using the kitchen. Pets are allowed on a case-by-case basis. We would appreciate you bringing a blanket or sheet to cover the rugs so that the pet hairs don't set into the rugs, and ask that pets are kept off of the furniture. Thanks! Check-In is 5:00pm, Check-Out is 11:00am. These times are flexible, so please check with us to see if we can accommodate alternate timing needs. And please, no smoking inside or near the space. We ask that smoking be done outside in areas which are a respectable distance from other tenants and structures.

I had a wonderful comfortable stay at Ken's great studio. The bed was very comfy and I loved all his art pieces around the studio. The location is super convenient and Ken was a great communicator regarding my stay.

We needed a place for just one night in Taos, and Ken's place was great! The location is very convenient, it was comfortable and well appointed.

Small but comfortable. Good size for two. Well supplied with kitchen utensils and lots of information for things to do in Taos. Really good location too. While I personally won't recommend walking from Ken's house to the main plaza, due to the narrow roads without sidewalks, it is a super easy walk. Also really quiet, despite being in a shared compound situation.

Ken was great about communication through the stay, everything was as described and the place was a good one to stay at. Having a kitchen with utensils and such is a big plus.

Great quaint little apartment. Just down the street from a delicious pizza parlor and blocks from downtown. We loved our stay and would do it again. Thanks Ken!

Ken's place was great! A cozy studio, near historical downtown Taos. We only stayed for a night but we were very happy with our choice! I would stay there again for sure! Taos is also an adorable little town! If your'e going there, also make sure to visit the Taos Ski Valley!

We are native New Mexicans, and I'm proud to be from Taos and to live in Albuquerque with my two daughters, Pearl and Ysabel, ages 4 and 2. Albuquerque and Taos have a flourishing art and music community and we feel so lucky to be involved with it. We also really enjoy traveling and try to do it as much of it as possible! And we love staying with other airbnb-ers as it's such an excellent way to get the true flavor of a place, and to get personal recommendations for local food and attractions. We have thoroughly enjoyed hosting people from so many different corners of the planet, and are pleasantly surprised how many amazing folks come through our town! We look forward to meeting you and sharing our passion for the American Southwest.
