Overview

Photos and Description of the El Prado vacation house rental

3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home, newly remodeled, with room to spare

This 2800-square-foot, 2 story, 3 bedroom, 3 bath home was remodeled in 2013 and is located on the highest bluff in an area just 3/10 of a mile north of the old blinking light (junction of Hwys 522 & 150, which is the road to the Taos Ski Valley.)

The home’s layout offers a spacious interior while providing unique separation for two couples/families. All bedrooms are located on the ground floor but the two main bedrooms are located on the opposite ends. The remaining ground floor consists of yet another bedroom offering three twin beds and a window banquette. Yet, this floor offers even more. Designed solely for kids or the young at heart, the map area displays old antique maps, children’s puzzles and games, along with an array of video games, all complemented by one very large banquette that can easily accommodate seating for the entire family or sleep comfortably two kids.

The upstairs has a panoramic view through numerous windows and a spacious deck for the morning coffee or evening cocktails, designed openly from the kitchen which allows the dining & living rooms to flow evenly to nurture the truly amazing views of the mountains and valley sunrises and sunsets. Recently, we added a swamp cooler with a thermostat to control the temperature that will help keep our guests cool in even the warmest days.

The kitchen has been upgraded, too, with brand new appliances and is equipped to accommodate an extravagant dining experience or a simple cup of “joe”. The dining table seats comfortably six, while the living room coffee table may accommodate three others who desire to be inspired by a little DishTV while dining.

The home is very unique and is decorated in the true Taos tradition, from vigas accenting each ceiling, complemented by ceiling fans in the main bedrooms, to the saltillo tile and wood floors adorned by antique and Persian hand-made rugs, with distinctive antiques, as well as original and hand-made art that has been collected over the years and placed tastefully throughout the house. Along with old adobe straw stucco, there are also vibrantly painted walls which allow those who may not be so inspired at home to experience Taos’s true legacy of passionate colors in an everyday setting.

This home has a wonderful, serene setting and yet is only a few minutes from all Taos has to offer...great restaurants, shops and many world class outdoor winter and summer activities.

Casa Contenta welcomes you to explore the Taos experience. We’re encouraged that once you're here, you won't want to leave.

We only use plant-based, non-scented cleaning products throughout the home.

Although this area is extremely quiet and peaceful, for those desiring a further sense of security, the home is equipped with extensive outdoor lighting, along with monitored ADT security services for your safety day and night.

The Rio Grande Gorge Bridge is a wonder to behold, with various vendors lined up with original art and jewelry and homemade food products. Just eight miles away on Highway 64.

Located a short distance of 32 miles away, Ojo Caliente is an outdoor mineral springs and is the only hot springs in the world with four different types of mineral water including lithia, iron, soda and arsenic. Also available are spa services, a restaurant and a bar where you really should try the Mexican chocolate drink. Their rules are very restrictive for children, so please be sure to check before you go.

Twirl is located right by the Taos Square and is a toy store with an unbelievable playground on the back side of it. A must-play for anyone with children.

On Saturdays in the morning, from 9 to noon, there is a farmers market on the back side of the square with many delicious concoctions to awaken your taste buds!

May through October.

The Cumbres & Toltec train takes you through a scenic ride and was voted one of CNN's '49 Journeys that Will Change your life.' Their operations are seasonal so you might want to check with them before you make the 70-mile drive.
