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

This place just has to be seen to be believed!!! And don't just see it, live it!!! Staying in the Phoenix East Earthship is nothing less than a once-in-a-lifetime experience!!! The photos on the website don't do it justice. I sent photos to a friend - she said it looked like a rainforest, a coloring book and an international art... More

Our family was so excited about Earthships that months ago we reserved the entire Phoenix for two nights. Earthship Biotecture's excellent website only begins to capture the design excellence, function, and beauty of the house, mountain/mesa setting, and what it represents as a global movement for sustainability. The poem below was inspired by our experiences..... we highly recommend Earthships to... More

To really appreciate the uniqueness of an Earthship, one should spend a night. Instead of just a cursory tour seeing the video and photos, one can actually experience what it is like. I chose to stay in the Phoenix, which is a whimsical Gaudiesque building. This house can be subdivided--I only rented out part of the place, the part without... More
