We stayed in the unit called The Phoenix for 2 nights the first weekend in May, and saw a mouse inside three different times. The management style is reactive rather than proactive, so a renter is likely to have something wrong during his stay. They want you to call and let them know, and then they come fix it. By... More

Earthship Biotecture should be listed separately from the lodgings, as it is also an attraction one can (& should!) visit when in Taos. Take this tour, well worth the price of admission. You enter a totally off the grid, sustainable home, and learn how something like this gets built, where they exist (more than one community of these so-called earthships... More

Wow. We are ready to fold up our life in Seattle and join the Earthship community!! One night in the Lemuria rental and we are hooked. The amazing aesthetics of the natural surroundings combined with the reclaimed building materials, resulting in a self sufficient yet high tech and luxurious space is amazing. All creature comforts were accounted for, with a... More

The overall concept of living off the grid, and the way the houses are built, as well as the design of the place, is really interesting. We stayed in Phoenix west, which meant we didn't have a kitchen, and it's a 10 mile drive into Taos to get food. Phoenix west is probably the smallest accommodation, and is within a... More

After a multi-hour long tour of the various bioships they currently have under construction we had the opportunity to stay at 'The Phoenix' for the evening. It was incredible with the vast quantity of plants they had inside, the original architecture and the quiet. The shower will work just fine and stay warm if you take your shower in mid-afternoon....

You don't have to be living off the grid to learn how to be more conservative with the finite resources which you use day to day. These engineers have created some very viable plug and play solutions for electrical and water conservation. The recycled design build idea is excellent especially for places were resources and capital are tight. We visited... More

I only spent 45-60 mins visiting here (did not do an overnight stay) while staying in Taos but this place is extraordinary and a must-see stop while in Taos. It is impossible to convey what it is like to visit a community that is entirely self-sustaining and so revolutionary in so many ways. The buildings are gorgeous and fascinating and,... More

We experienced the learning center and fell in love with the idea. Being able to come inside to see the guts of the house lead me to a better understanding. The homes are beautiful works of art that are completely functional. I am starting to save all my fans and bottles starting now.

We rented the "Euro" Earthship for a week in order to learn more about this house style and to see if we could accept it as our next house. Aside from personalizing the setup and environment inside the rooms it more than exceeded our expectations. The house is comfortable and spacious and well equipped. We were here in November and...

We were exploring the area, as my wife is writing a book about a post-apocalyptic America - based in Colorado/New Mexico/Kansas.Staying in an Earthship (a self sustaining abode) eerily felt like we were in her novel - she plans to incorporate some of the self-sustaining house ideas as a way people cope in her book. But in the present, it... More
