I booked this peaceful get away for my husbands 40th birthday. We had such a great time at this place, it was beautiful and the weather was great. Vivien was a great host, we couldn't have asked for better. We will be back for sure!
This beautiful, relaxing Casita has lovely artwork and is beautiful inside and outside. Several acres of land with patio, picnic table, barbecue, hammock and hot tub. Located in very relaxing and quiet location. Vivien, the owner is very welcoming and friendly. She is not intrusive at all but is definitely available with recommendations for the area and other assistance. I had a health issue while there and Vivien was very helpful! Could not have been better! I would definitely return and recommend to my friends. Would give El Sanctuaria more than 5 stars if I could!
Our stay at El Santuario was more than wonderful. We, my wife and I, had a magnificent time. The property was beautiful, the hot tub was ready and warm, the house was more than cozy (it was even decorated beautifully). We stayed for four nights and enjoyed every one. Nothing will ever compare. That is why we have decided to make our stay here an annual event.
Vivien and Sonia are both amazing and we couldn't have picked a better place for our anniversary. This was the most rest and relaxation we've had in a long time. The location was perfect as it was not in the middle of town, but also not far from town and the Taos Plaza. The hospitality was wonderful, the view was amazing, and having a fireplace, hot tub, and beauty all around was absolutely amazing. We have found our yearly relaxation spot and will DEFINITELY be back again.
An enchanted guest house that sits among gorgeous Aspens and on beautifully maintained grounds. Vivien was an excellent host and provided all amenities for our comfort. Among the many things we enjoyed were the hot tub, screen house, wood burning fireplace, and the meandering pathways throughout the property. A bonus of course was a pet friendly property. ENJOY!
El Santuario is a beautiful, peaceful oasis that offered us a much needed respite from our incredibly busy lives. We booked it on a whim after seeing photos on Trip Advisor. I'm so glad we did!
The casita is beautifully situated on over six acres and is located just outside Taos. Vivien, the host, clearly takes a lot of pride in taking care of her property, and it shows. Both the house and grounds were perfectly maintained and clean. We loved all of the seating areas scattered around outside. There are plenty of chairs, swings, and hammocks to do some hard core relaxing!
We felt so comfortable and at ease there that we let our six year old wander around the property and explore to her heart's content, something she's never been able to do before. She enjoyed the hot tub and eating asparagus out of the greenhouse!
Vivien is a wonderfully kind and generous host who went out of her way to welcome our family and make sure we felt at home. We certainly felt more than a twinge of sadness when it was time to leave.
Thank you, Vivien, for a wonderful, restful visit!
We rent from TripAdvisor and similar sites quite often. This was one of the more unusual finds. It is a lovely, spacious, luxurious accommodation, albeit a bit outside of the heart of Taos, but as long as you have a car, no problem. It is quiet, with lovely acreage and a huge bed and even surprisingly larger bathroom. Vivien is a most gracious hostess. She provided complimentary popcorn and a lovely bottle of wine. Our regret was the short time we stayed, just 2 nights. We were on a week-long trip through NM with multiple stops, and thus we really didn't have sufficient time to enjoy the fireplace, hot tubs, and incredible grounds. But we thoroughly enjoyed chatting with Vivien on the day of our departure. This one is a real winner.
