“needs a good cleaning”

Casita Perdido could be the very best destination ever....the view from the portal is amazing. It's quiet but still very close to all that is Taos, it's decorated beautifully, and the layout of the casita is perfect. Simply, it just needs to be cleaner. Before unpacking I broom swept all the floors because it felt like a layer of sand was under my feet, and indeed there was. In the corners were tufts of pet hair, as was the case with the chairs on the portal and under the bed. The bathroom/shower tiles were spotted and in need of a good wipe down. The kitchen drawers contain grit in the silverware trays. Also, we were invaded with candlefly moths - dozens - each night when we got in from dinner and switched on the light.
I truly think this casita, or any vacation rental open to the general public, should be as clean and uncluttered as a room at a Hilton, especially at over $100 a night.

Management Response
May 24, 2012
I think all owners want their guests to have a great stay, but we can't be responsive unless guests make us aware of any negative issues. In talking with these guests, they indicated everything was great. We did discuss the moths, but everyone in Taos has been plagued with them this year because of the warm spring and there is not much we could do about them. We would have been glad to correct any issues to their satisfaction had they told us they were unhappy.

“Peaceful with Gorgeous View”
Reviewed September 19, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

A very quiet and peaceful casita with a gorgeous view. We watched a late summer storm off in the mountains with a double rainbow on the first night. The next night we listened to the sounds of coyote howls nearby.

“Peaceful and great views”
Reviewed August 15, 2011 for a stay in July 2010

Casa Perdito is a bit of heaven on the outskirts of Taos. High on a ridge, surrounded by cactus and quail, the owners keep a beautiful little casita private and comfortable. The casita has everything you need to cook a full meal and never leave the warm surroundings. Randy and Sonya are friendly hosts who do not intrude but make sure you have everything you need. We will definitely return as soon as we can.
