I rented a two bedroom "earthship" at this location. These homes are utterly amazing. Home had an interior green house, solar, water that is used 5 times before it returns, and outstanding systems for this home. Very comfortable, well maintained and decorated, and unique design. One of the best places I have ever stayed.

Beautiful, spacious and surreal place on the Taos Mesa. We spent five peaceful nights here underneath the starry sky. In the morning, we jogged on the gravel roads and admired the high desert vistas. Staying in the earthship was far more interesting than just visiting. We began to understand and appreciate how these homes function as actual off-the-grid systems. Yay...

Our one-night stay in the Taos Earthship community was a highlight of our New Mexico vacation. The homes are unique, comfortable, and beautifully situated on a plateau near the Rio Grande Gorge. A must-see!

My family and I finally made our way down and stayed in an earthship. We stayed in the Phoenix which was amazing. The staff was very friendly and the home was very clean. The kids loved the birds, fish, chickens and turtles. In all it was an amazing trip and we will definitely be back.

I wanted a mini-vacation close to Albuquerque. I came across the Earthship Biotecture and rented the Waybee home for 3 days. The cost of the home per night was very close to a hotel rental in Taos. My party consisted of 2 adults, a 5 yr and a 4 month baby. It was a great experience, but the house was...

We rented the Phoenix East unit and LOVED it. The setting here is spectacular, and the unit is amazing. All we wanted to do was explore it and how it worked. Fresh eggs from the chickens there were unbelievably delicious. There is a full kitchen so you can make a complete meal. Good WiFi. Apple TV. I would love to...

The earthship Euro is spacious and clean. Three bedrooms with comfortable king beds and two baths. The interior environment although clean lacked the charming idiosyncrasies of other earthship rentals like the Phoenix. The down side was an unfinished outdoor environment without a pleasing view. The view from the front porch was acceptable but the private back area was rough with...

The website and walk about the "flagship" building give a good idea what this building company is all about. The small welcome center is pricey for a walk through a terrarium-like foyer and 45 min video-slide show of everything you could want to know about this unique form of architecture. After 45 min the faint petroleum smell( comparable to a...

I'd been lucky to reserve one of the Earthships for a night and chose the 'Lemuria' model as I was travelling alone. I was greeted by friendly and helpful staff upon arrival in the visitor centre and after filling out a few forms, myself and a couple who were also renting an Earthship followed a member of staff in our...

After leaving Rio Grande Gorge Bridge we continued down road to this point of interest. Interesting to visit but do not know if I could live in those housing arrangements. In our travels we have seen many applications for future energy needs. This is indeed unique. This is what I consider dark green living!! Worth a look see!!
