Designed and built by a Taos artist, Casa Tortuga is a serenely contemporary interpretation of southwest themes, combining the traditional elements of vigas and kiva fireplace with original contemporary design. The open living areas flow to a secluded back patio of red sandstone and a colorful portico looking down on a view of wild sagebrush arroyos, across the green pastures of Lower Ranchitos, past the town of Taos in the distance to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the background. The very private hot tub is graced by a flowing adobe privacy wall and redwood deck. Tasteful original art abounds inside and outside of this gracious two bedroom / two bathroom Taos vacation retreat.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed in this home during the July 4th holidays and had an incredible view of the fireworks with a lightening storm going on at the same time. Quite a show!! The home is beautiful and very comfortable with everything you might need to make your stay very enjoyable. The only problem we had were spiders in the home. The very first night there, we had gone to bed and I had just dozed off and I felt something run across my face and I swatted whatever it was and immediately turned on the lamp next to the bed and saw the injured spider laying on the bed. We ended up killing at least six or seven good sized spiders during our stay. I called the caretaker before we left and told her and she said they would have the home treated. Other than the spiders, the home was fabulous!! more
