Taos is a year round destination offering breathtaking views, intriguing history and intimate privacy making for the ultimate relaxing and healing getaway. Casa Betita has all modern conveniences including a 6 person Hot Tub with outdoor shower, Gas BBQ grill, radiant heat floors, a fully equipped kitchen, two flat screen televisions with DVD players, Direct TV, Wireless Internet and a Bose iPod Dock, an outdoor fireplace and several outdoor seating areas to choose from.

The house also has two Kiva fireplaces (one in the master bedroom), organic linens, and many special touches not found in many vacation homes. Taos is a special place of many stories. History is rich here, and the journey of each visitor under the vast canopy of sky adds another layer to the richness of the place. Experience Taos for yourself. You will be changed and fulfilled.More
