Had a great stay at the Earthship for a week. Even though it is "off the grid," the place has everything you need: high speed internet, bath and kitchen stuff, etc. Make sure to climb the hill behind the house at some point. Kirsten was an excellent host--always avaialble by phone and by email when we had questions about the house and town. The place is even more magical than it looks in the photos.
This is an awesome and earth friendly place to lay down your head. It's a zen haven. Ron was awesome and enthusiastic as he described his mission in designing and building Earthships. Kirsten was prompt to reply as we planned our trip and saved us when we accidentally locked ourselves out!
The best part of the Earthship is its location. If you stay in downtown Taos, you will miss waking up every morning surrounded by mountains. Because of the Earthship's location in the valley, you see mountains no matter where you look. You also have a front row seat to sunsets and endless sky. Plus, you can enjoy the thrill of driving over the Rio Grande Gorge every morning as you go in to town. Runners! This is the best place we have ever had the pleasure of logging miles.
We spent a very nice week in Kirstens´and Rons` place.
This home was amazing.
Everything was prepared very detailed with a "loving hand" (i hope everyone understands what i try to express.)
Both do their best to give their guests the feeling - "you are at home"!
thx a lot - for a very nice time

This was a great Earthship experience. We were surprised by how easy it was to "use" the house...really everything felt about like living in a normal house with regular electric outlets, water and cooking and bathing facilities. Kirsten was very helpful and low key, available but not intrusive. Would definitely recommend this beautiful and clean earthship to anyone looking to stay near Taos.
Kirsten & Ron were terrific hosts -- responsive and provided a clean accommodations in the Earthship community. when something of potential concern arose, they were willing to come by the home to repair it (worked out, though…it was a false alarm!) I would highly recommend staying in one of their homes in this community for a peaceful getaway, not to mention to learn more about what sustainable/off-the-grid living is!
The Earthships are amazing! This earthship is very nice for a couple or even more, Kirsten put an extra bed in the garage for us.
I loved taking a shower with solar warmed water and bright sun in the morning. :)
Be aware if you are dependent on a blow dryer or curling/flatiron - this isn't the place for you. You cannot use those items in this house.
Also, there are some large holes in the backyard at this time, so if you have kids or dogs, be aware!
That being said, I had the best sleep of my trip here. The bed is super comfy and it was nice to have some humidity from the plants/garden in the house.
We had a wonderful stay and would love to come back to the community soon.
I didn't meet Kirsten, but she left everything for us as communicated and she was very easy to communicate with before the stay.
It doesn't get much better than this, very relaxing place to stay with a billion dollar view. Ron and Kirsten were very helpful and quick to answer any questions I had. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
We had a wonderful time staying at Kirsten's earthship. It was clean and tidy and had all the amenities we needed for a nice weekend away. Go to the visitors center and get a tour, it's worth it to understand everything it takes to make a home like this. We'd love to go back!
One word: amazing! The Earthship concept is smart, forward looking, and quite moving. We had an amazing time there, learned a lot, and got inspired by how thinking outside the box can change the world. We are going home with a dream: building our own Earthship! Even if we never met them, Kirsten, Ron, and Molly sent us plenty of information by email. The place was spotless, and the small touches such as the herbal teas and the flowers were greatly appreciated.
Beautiful house and experience. House was lovely to stay in. No issues at all. Would definitely recommend staying here and learning about more sustainable forms of living.
Kirsten and Ronald were absolutely wonderful guests. Communication with them was very easy, they left the apartment in great condition, and they were a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end. I'd easily recommend them to any other hosts out there and would be more than happy to have them back again myself anytime
We loved having Kirsten! She was a perfect guest. We hope she visits us again!
