Upscale and newly renovated, Casa Colibri, a Taos vacation rental home, is located in the popular Los Altos resort community with Clubhouse Pool, Sauna & Tennis and feels brand spanking new!
This spacious adobe vacation home sleeps 8 guests in 3.5 bedrooms. The den/office transforms to the fourth sleeping area implicated by the listed "half bedroom" feature. This well designed and equipped room enables 2 computer buffs to work simultaneously. The den/office is also a great getaway for the guest who longs for respit from group activities. Last, but not least, it is home to an upscale, easy to pull out, cushy double futon for a great night's sleep.
A gourmet kitchen with upscale gas convection oven/range is open to the great room living area for all to enjoy and particpate with the chef. The island bar with two handy stools makes chopping vegetables a delightful social pursuit. Seating is ample at the extra long and wide hand crafted southwest style dining table which also views the Taos Mountain panorama and east pastures. You are guaranteed of seeing nearby coyotes as play, cattle grazing and horses looking for the friendly guest with an apple or carrot.
Unique to the Taos vacation scene, Casa Colibri provides two summer hot tubs. The above ground tub is available 12 months a year. The romantic sunken tub is hot and read to go May through October. This allows separaate groups to separate. Men & women. Or Adults & teens. This feature delights guests of all makes, sizes and numbers. If you've never tried an in ground tub, you are in for a treat. There is a difference and it is wonderful.
Next to the in ground hot tub is an outdoor adobe kiva fireplace for romantic evenings. Socializing outdoors, under Taos starry night skies with a kiva fire popping is like none other. Roasting hot dogs or marshmallows for making "Someores" is a favoite past time with outdoor kivas.
Within an easy walk is the clubhouse with heated indoor pool, sauna and relaxing lounge. No food or beverages, but a quiet place to get away from the hustle bustle going on at the house. Outdoor tennis can be enjoyed year round as long as there's no snow on the court.
The best news is "location". Half way between the biggest reasons most folks venture out here - Taos Ski Valley and the town of Taos Village. 8 miles in either direction. Heading up to Taos Ski Valley there are no traffice lights or stop sgns. Just 8 miles of mother nature's beauty up that mountain road with the Rio Hondo river all the way up. Guests are welcome to pull over and enjoy the gifts of that treasured mountain stream - fishing, wading, picnicking, exploring, etc.
This fresh and lovely home is awaiting your arrival. Call us for further details....Read more

Our family spent 9 days in Casa Colibri and we absolutely loved the house. The floor plan was laid out to give everyone privacy, it was beautifully decorated, the big outdoor patio with jacuzzi had spectacular views of the mountain and wild life. The location was right in between the town of Taos and the Ski area. We could not have found a better adobe!
