Vacation home in Taos with kitchen and patio

Casa Carmelita, also known as Casa Encantada #7, has plenty of charm, romance and magnetism that is tucked away in a serene setting. Casa Encantada, a classic adobe compound is situated on what was original Pueblo land. This early 1900’s family compound has been transformed into a charming, intimate collection of individually owned casitas. Located one block off Kit Carson, it is an easy walk to the Plaza, 0.7 miles or drive to free parking just minutes from the Plaza for shopping, galleries, restaurants, music and museums, and just moments to the El Monte Sagrado Resort and Spa.

Casa Carmelita is a classic adobe casita that opens into a beautifully landscaped, grassy common area. There you will enjoy a unique totem pole surrounded by large cottonwood and aspen trees. This one bedroom gem sleeps 2 adults comfortably with a King bed (memory foam) and a Queen, Sleeper Sofa with no bars, no springs, no compromise. Guest will enjoy the large Kiva fireplace with beautiful gas logs for warm cozy nights. French doors open to the spacious private patio showcasing a bistro set with a wood-burning chiminea for a "quite" happy hour, then top the evening off with a relaxing soak in the hot tub. Additional amenities include, fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, microwave, dishwasher, Roku/Smart TV with wireless Sony headphones, blu ray DVD, CD player with Bluetooth, portable Bluetooth jam-box for music in the patio, fiber optic high speed internet, gas grill.

Our casita is dog friendly. Your dog can be unleashed in your private patio, however there is a strict leash policy for the complex. There are a number of common areas where you can walk your dog, but the dog must be on a leash attached to the owner at all times in the common grassy areas, walkways and parking lots. If your dog is reported off leash, we are subject to a fine and this will be the responsibility of the guest. The neighborhood is also ideal for walking pets and Kit Carson Park is only a few blocks away.

Dave visited Taos for the first time in 1971 on a art scholarship through his University. We hope you will enjoy his original paintings that hang in the casita and are available for purchase, website Carmelita, a Registered Nurse enjoys the culinary experience of New Mexico and the Southwest.

We are excited to share Casa Carmelita with you.

Hard to find as better place to stay!
All of the reviews about this place are accurate. Wow. What a perfect weekend. Adorable little place. I absolutely loved the kiva fireplace and hot tub. Peaks of the mountains from the bedroom window. Comfortable bed. Walking distance to town (10-15 minutes). Just an absolutely amazing getaway to the mountains. Love that they are dog friendly. Just all in all can not recommend enough! What are you waiting for? Book this now!!!
