La Buena Vida Condominiums
Reviewed 6 January 2011

La Buena Vida is a condo complex made up of individually-owned units. The units vary from 1-3 bedrooms are are organized in small clusters for privacy and beauty.

The unit we stayed in, Pinon #2, was fantastic. With modern conveniences and all new furnishings and entertainment equipment, our stay was wonderfully peaceful and relaxing. Contrary to most Taos vacation rentals and complexes, La Buena Vida is situated in the heart of town, but off the main road - with private parking, privacy walls, and gated, private access.

If you are looking for a property in the heart of Taos, but with a serene, cozy feel ... the condos of La Buena Vida are my recommendation.

Rented a condo from "manager" Fran Torres @ La Buena Vida Condos on Kit Carson Road and had an experience from hell.

Leaking water in both bathroom and kitchen went un-repaired after 5 weeks. Manager Fran Torres ignored repeated requests, then came to front door, yelling, screaming incoherently.

Not to mention the units were built "prison-style" around a small, very small courtyard ( 25x25) where I was daily confronted by drunken, literally toothless motorcycle-gang other tenants. Creepy, to say the least.

Neighbor working on motorcycle inside his unit next to mine w/accompanying noise. "Manager" Fran Torres refused to ask the gang-banger to cease-and-desist.

La Buena Vida Condos are anything BUT "The Good Life!"
