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!!

I had done some research about earthship architecture long before we went and was happily surprised by how much I actually loved it. Comfortable, Beautiful and all off the grid. Couldn't have asked for more. All the comforts of home. What amazed me is the fact the the interior temp stays comfortable and constant. I'm inspired to build my own... More

This place is awesome. The ingenuity, recycling/ reuse of materials, and eco friendly systems show us all what can be done. These houses are on what looks almost like an alien landscape outside Taos, with majestic mountains in the distance. We've watched this place grow for 20 years. You cross a very deep canyon (the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, breathtaking... More

We stayed one night in the Waybee House at Earthship. The house was amazing, totally off-the-grid with full amenities. Absolutely gorgeous views, clean, comfortable beds, full kitchen and living area. As a part of the stay, we also enjoyed a personalized tour of the property which included Q&A and additional information not available with a regular visit to the Earthship... More

I had my doubts.....thought of some hobbit type thing with maybe power.........blown away at what I discovered. Homes that look just as, if not more, modern as a cookie cutter subdivision homes in the burbs. These homes feature awesome solar systems, fresh water filtration, TV and wifi, food production, plants to make the air quality amazing, and views that will... More

A three-dot review typically means 'average', but 'average' doesn't really apply here, since staying in an Earthship is such an unusual experience. In this case, the third dot out of five indicates more of a 'middle of the road' review. The Earthship concept is a wonderful idea in many ways that are too obvious to even require listing, and of...

I cannot recommend the Earthship vacation rental experience highly enough. Everyone must stay one day in their life in an Earthship. We stayed in April 2014 (TA would offer me a 2014 option!!). These are comfortable, modern, luxurious, dark night sky, isolated units that house many, provide ample living, cooking, toilets/bathrooms and are very comfortable. I recommend reading about the...

Always wanted to stay in an Earthship house and took the time to do it recently, just a little NW of Taos. It was awesome at the Waybee House, a 2 bedroom, 2 bath alternative house made of tires and bottles. Comfy, clean, very accommodating and in no way less than a five star hotel, except it does not have... More
