The rental property itself is very cute and in a wonderful location mere minutes from the town square, shopping, food by foot. The baseboard heaters in the bedroom and bathroom were really all we needed to keep the whole place warm since it is so nice and open. We LOVED the private yard for our dogs and the provided dog sheets to put on the couch and bed so our senior pups could be comfortable just like at home. However, the property definitely needed a deep cleaning; food crusted to oven knobs, cobwebs on artwork, dead mosquito stuck to wall in bathroom, light switches with smudges on them, etc. The bathroom and kitchen had definitely been wiped down before our stay, but the floors were quite dirty and I had to pick a few hairs off of the pillowcases in the bedroom that definitely did not belong to us or our dogs since we had just arrived. Trying to get access to the house was the hardest. We had not received instructions 24 hours prior, so I messaged Melissa on VRBO app. She emailed me at 4:50 a.m. the day of our arrival with a line that said "Tree house and airstream summer lodging. Melissa " That was it...so I emailed back and asked how we accessed the property. A few hours passed, we tried calling, no answer, called VRBO customer service, they called, no answer. We kept trying and my husband got her on the phone, providing my name, email address, etc. for our stay. She messaged in email and VRBO she would send access, but another 2-3 hours pass, we're arriving into town in 2 hours, and nothing arrived in my email or my VRBO messages or spam. I called and was able to get the access instructions over the phone from her but not before she blamed my husband for, and I quote, "mucking things up." Not sure how he "mucked things up" by providing all my contact details. That did not leave us feeling very confident about booking with this property manager which is shame because the whole compound at that property was absolutely charming and so very convenient to downtown Taos. Be vigilant about getting access instructions 24-48 hours before your stay here and bring some light cleaning supplies, and this is a great spot.
