Mystic Oasis, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
I worked at a Sacred Heart school in California for 23 years. During that time I chaperoned a group of high school students on a trip to Taos. I fell in love with the beauty of the land and the pace of life here. When I found this property I knew it was a special place and had to be shared with others.
Dan purchased this House in 2005
Why Dan chose Taos
We love this property because we are surrounded by nature and open fields with a view of the mountains. We are also only five minutes from town, and 30 minutes from the Taos ski Valley.

We had a wonderful stay in this special house. I am the type of person that reads every single review , so that I can get a full picture. If you are that type read on, if not, I think the pictures and description do it justice--I wouldn't hesitate to rent this property again. In fact, as we left my kids begged us to return!
First, the house is in on a property with a few other houses, including the owners, who give you a tour upon arrival. There are other full time renters on this property as well, all nice, and we didn't feel it negatively impacted our stay. Our kids enjoyed chatting with the neighbors and it made for a better trip for them. There is one side of this house that has mostly windows, and this side faces greenery and feels very private. The neighbors are quiet too, so there is no feeling of being surrounded. The owners/host leave a nice snack, wine, and fresh eggs too. There are a few pantry (coffee) and fridge items for use. We cooked two meals there, one on the grill and the other inside for 6 people, and we had plenty of spices, cookware, oils, etc. There are laundry facilities in the house. There is one full bathroom downstairs in this house with a bathtub, shower, sink, and toilet--it is attached to the queen bedroom, but there is a separate entrance in the hallway too. The full sized bedroom is up a back set of steps in a quiet area, there is a door to close between the downstairs hallway and the stairway. We did not sleep in this room or the downstairs queen. We all slept in the bedroom area up the ladder from the living room. These sleeping areas are all open to the house and each other. However, there is a feeling of privacy. Up the first ladder you enter a large loft area with two king sized beds. You can see the beds from each other but they are on opposite sides. The beds are comfortable, futon mattresses, there is a lot of floor space here to relax, including cozy rugs and chairs. There is a ladder to go to another sleeping area (queen bed) from this king bed area and up another ladder from the queen bed is a higher loft with cushions.
The living area is wonderful, full of art, lovely lighting, windows, cozy furniture, and a feeling of peace. We spent most of our vacation time here, completing a big puzzle and relaxing.
At The Plaza, we went to Twirl--it's perfect for kids.
This house is one of our favorite vacation rentals, and we always rent houses vs hotels. Thank you for the opportunity to stay here!
All you could imagine and more. Truly felt like a fairy tale, incredible architecture in alignment with nature. Creative rooms, humble feelings, warm sensations, amazing amenities. Nothing but a dream stay in Taos.
What a fun place!!!
This place is truly magical feeling! So unique and quirky, but in a great and well thought out way. Our stay was comfortable in the middle of the summer during a heat wave with the natural breeze through the house. Beautiful views and friendly hosts. Would definitely stay here again!
Fun, funky and comfy!
This house was great for our weekend - plenty of places for hanging out. There was a lovely fruit and cheese tray and bottle of wine waiting for us in the fridge as we were a late arrival. Such a nice surprise! We had kiddos who loved the ladders and loft areas. We enjoyed the porch and the hipster pool too! The extra outdoor bathroom was a great feature to balance the one indoor bathroom. Overall a great stay - would definitely stay here again.
Thanks so much for staying with us, it was nice having you. Glad your family enjoyed their time here. Please come again.
This is a totally lovely and peaceful property. Diane and Dan are wonderful hosts!
We have stayed at this property now 4 or 5 times and just adore it, and of course, plan to return. It is beautiful and completely comfortable. The views are amazing and the quiet is so relaxing. The stars at night are just incredible and we love the hosts!! They are warm, inviting, and take care of everything!
We love having you stay with us. So glad you had a nice peaceful time.
See you next time.
Dan and Diane
We loved this artistic, funky property! Something to explore around every corner.
Great get-away with lovely grounds, yummy treats in the garden and fresh eggs. Complete with a “red-neck” pool.
Plenty of room for the whole family but cozy enough for a couple.
Lots of ladders so best for a spry bunch but there are two more easily accessible rooms.
We cannot say enough nice things about our stay here! We will be back!
