The concept is wonderful and the execution outstanding.This is a self sustaining community that has converted trash into eco-friendly homes. An inspiration to us all ! I din not stay over night I merely visited. But I think any one visiting Taos should visit here.

Located near rio grande bridge near taos. Collection of several bio friendly homes that are off the grid. They charge admission to get into the show home and you can walk around the other homes. Interesting. Different. Cutting edge. Would imagine would take a lot of courage and passion to establish. They are totally off the grid. Was worth seeing.

Loved our experience in the Euro Earthship, very spacious and all mod cons available such as wifi and Netflix. Such a fantastic time living off the grid and learning how these homes have been built across the world. Very interesting and other worldly with plants growing inside situated in high desert. Good idea to pick up food in Taos before... More

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
