About Sanjay Poovadan

Look me up

Sanjay Poovadan purchased this house in 1998

Why Sanjay Poovadan chose El Prado

This was our home for our 4 children. It started out live as an FHA adobe in the early 80's and was expanded. When Marah bought it in 1998 it had been Blue Bird Herb Farm for 2-3 years but it was still a 2 bedroom home. Marah designed and built the second floor addition to make room for the growing family. The 3 boys, the pool table and the mess went upstairs. In 2005 we renovated again, adding decks, patios, new doors and landscaping....and we are still working on the outside.

What makes this house unique

Spacious public spaces with large bedrooms all with views. Two living rooms, one on the main floor and one upstairs means you can have one group playing games and another watching television without crossing wires. Adobe - means quiet.

Great house for multiple families!

  • 5 of 5

We visited for Spring break to ski and visit the town. The house was great as we had 3 families of 4. Plenty of space for everyone, especially loved having the game room upstairs for kids to hang out. One of the best stocked rentals I’ve stayed in. Kitchen has everything we needed to cook meals including spices and condiments. Sanjay was quick to respond with any questions we had. Great rental! Highly recommend.

great stay in Taos

  • 4 of 5

The house is amazing with more than we expected. Sanjay is a very hospitable owner and operator. He ensures that your stay is comfortable and that you feel welcome for your stay.

I would definitely book this house rental again and I recommend that you try this place for your vacation needs. It is about the same distance from three ski resorts and the commute is fairly easy. Stores and shopping are near by and we enjoyed every minute of our stay.
