Trip Advisor is a nightmare to deal with. Work with the owner directly to avoid hidden charges and extremely poor customer service.

I'm so sorry that Paul could not get a full refund for his cancellation. It was out of my hands as the property owner. \

Thank you for your kindness Virginia. Your beauty as a person matches what this humble land gives back to you. Your steps are surely missed by the land and by us at El Santuario.

About the neighborhood
Great area for long walks or leisurely stints in the garden areas. The home is easily accessed from two main highways, north of the town of Taos about 12 minutes yet feeling like you're off the beaten path. Here on the property there are swings and dining tables and seating in different areas along with a covered patio lounge on the hillside for hanging out with a good book and some incredible views of the valley. The Chapel here is awaiting some restoration work but you are free to wander the land and pick some beets or carrots or other veggies out of the greenhouse. The berry orchard produces great raspberries in the summer and some later bloomers in the fall. Please help yourself!
Getting around
Bring a car as there are no taxis or uber rides and only limited bus service to very limited areas.
