Artist Owned Adobe Style Home Featured On NBC's Today Show

Family-friendly vacation home in El Prado with spa tub
Our Casa de Suenos (House of Dreams) is an adobe style home situated on the high mesa at the North edge of Taos with spectacular views of the Taos mountains and sunsets. With 1,650 square feet of living space it can comfortably accommodate up to 6 people and is eclectically and tastefully decorated. There is also an in-house studio art gallery with work for sale for our guests.The two bedroom suites, which are at separate ends of the house, have new queen and king beds with plush new linens and towels. The master bath has a jacuzzi and walk in shower as well as a full bathroom next to the guest room suite. We have a futon and a new hide a bed with memory foam in the living room. And a brand new hot tub sits just outside in a private area. Our kitchen is fully equipped with newly purchased cookware, a gas stove and cook top, a full refrigerator with filtered water and and a large gas grill outside the door on the patio to cook while you're enjoying the mountain views. A beautiful kiva fireplace warms the living room with plenty of seating to enjoy from three plush couches as well as a large fire pit outdoors. Our home is artist owned with original colorful Southwest paintings in all the rooms and many cultural touches from our world travels.
As noted,we also have a working studio and gallery of oil paintings by owner and painter Julie Nilsson. Access is with a key provided and visitors are welcome to see current work and what is available for purchase. We can assist with shipping if needed.
Additional amenities include a 42' satellite HDTV, DVD library and player, fiber optic internet with speed of 45-50 MBS, iPod docking player and a full stereo system, new hot tub, new washer/dryer with laundry soap provided, iron and ironing board, toaster, micro-wave, coffee pot, porta crib and jacuzzi tub and private shower in the master bath.

As much as we enjoy the home, we love the peace and quiet of the open spaces that surround us. And you may not have really seen stars and the Milky Way until you have spent an evening as our guests. The sage covered mesa has an old road, immediately accessible from our acreage, which invites cycling, jogging or walking all the way to the Rio Grande Gorge if you like, with views of the mountains around Taos, the Jemez Mountains far to the southwest near Los Alamos and the far western horizon.

We visit our Taos home on a regular basis and as a result, it is very well maintained. We are always thinking about what upgrades we need to make - for us as well as you.

Please note that the cancellation policy is strict so we suggest you purchase trip insurance.

Wonderful Winter Retreat
My husband and I have always wanted to go to a snowy retreat during winter. This beautiful adobe home did not disappoint. It has it all ! Great location from downtown Taos, but also a beautiful drive to Angel Fire and Red River! We enjoyed two beautiful snow days and one very clear bright sunshine weather day. The accommodations have all that you would ever need plus many additional thoughtful add ins for the guests comfort. ( well stocked kitchen, extra wash clothes, towels, coffee filters and many extra small items that are useful in the kitchen). We highly recommend and the communications with the host are excellent as well! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home !!

Fantastic Experience!
We love Taos and have been visiting for decades, mostly staying in VRBO properties. This is the best one, by far. What an absolute treat to be able to stay in this house surrounded by Julie's incredible art. The house is in a quiet area that is convenient to everything Taos has to offer. This home is immaculately clean, the kitchen is well equipped, the bed is comfortable and bedding first rate. The floor plan is perfect. A bonus is being able to access Julie's studio/gallery to see even more paintings. We travel with our dogs and the fully enclosed yard area made our stay that much easier. The views in all directions are beautiful and Taos mountain is predominant to the west. We really didn't need much help except for one question and Wendy, the Property Manager was immediately responsive. Can you tell that we loved our stay and will be back?

New Year Bliss
No surprises with this property. It was perfect for our multi-gen family gathering. The flow of the house was perfect for two family units and the main room with kitchen and dining is open and airy with plenty of seating. I would have liked a couple more side tables but that is so minor… The property manager was easy to get a hold of when we had questions prior to arrival and helped add the pet fee. Perfect visit!!
