||CASA AZUL (Blue House)
This charming and private vacation rental casita is perfect for one - two guests.. It's a short walk (three blocks) to the Historic Taos Plaza with on-site parking. It has been totally remodeled and renovated with new windows, bath and kitchen. It was quite a challenge, but now it's just right!
Casa Azul is furnished in my always popular "Melissiana Style" which is antiques, Consignment Store and Estate Sale treasure, all original Taos art and of course my sense of whimsy throughout!
You enter down a flagstone pathway to your cozy little vacation house. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you might need. I always say that if I don't have it, you won't need it! The kitchen is equipped with a new refrigerator and gas stove with oven. The counters are decorated with random tiles, and I do have so much fun re-purposing kitchen cabinets...
The living room is furnished with a loveseat, coffee table and entertainment armoire. I put in a corner gas log stove for heat and ambiance. All the romance of a wood burning stove, without any logs or ashes to deal with.
There is an equipale (Mexican style) table and two chairs. Set your table with bright, fun and festive dishes and nice big coffee mugs.
The bathroom at Casa Azul has been completely remodeled and features a tub/shower combination, random tile in the tub area, a tiled shelf, art, amenities and whimsy. The bathroom is equipped with a hair dryer and extra towels.
The bedroom is furnished with a queen bed made up with quality bedding, lots of pillows and a down comforter and quilt. There is a closet with padded hangers and two cozy robes for vacation lounging, and an antique dresser with mirror in a niche. You'll find good reading lights, original art and an antique bench. A window looks out onto the private walled courtyard.
The bedroom's lovely, rustic tongue and groove wood floor is one of those happy accidents that happened because of a staining mishap and some creative follow-up on my part. (Don't believe you can stain and seal with one product and don't EVER stain boards outside on a hot, sunny day!)
This is such a sweet place. I can't wait 'til spring when I will landscape the walled back courtyard garden, and add a table with chairs and a BBQ!
This casita is part of a compound consisting of a three bedroom/two bath main house and another Casita, named Casa Verde. These vacation rental properties can be rented separately, or together to sleep a group of 10. Each space has a private entry and private wall garden courtyard. The only space that is shared is the full laundry room which is available for all guests.
