“Experience this magical home ... feel the connection with the Spirit of the Land of Enchantment”
Reviewed 1 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

A perfect place to celebrate life, love and to enjoy the beauty that New Mexico has to offer! Feel the peace and tranquility of this beautiful area.. listening to the birds, the wind through the trees, the mountain views... I can't find words more fitting than "truly magical". My husband and I were searching for a place to renew and refresh us ...a real escape from the hustle and bustle of the crazy day to day... and Vivien and El Santuario gave us just that and more. The location is perfect.. near so many historic and fascinating local offerings.. It is a great starting point for venturing and exploring. Vivien was a wonderful host and indeed "friend"... a wealth of knowledge about the area. This home lacked for nothing...she provided everything we could need for a comfortable stay. The magic of El Santuario...and memories of our experience will be treasured forever. Thank you Vivien for sharing your home with us.. and truly showing us why New Mexico is called "The Land of Enchantment".

“Magical Location in Taos”
Reviewed 7 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Vivien is a fabulous host! She responded immediately to my three days of texts providing recommendations on sites, restaurants, groceries stores, shopping and best of all the Poeh Culture Center on the way to Santa Fe. This guesthouse is phenomenal--beautifully decorated, spacious, comfortable with a very spiritual feel. We will stay here again in the future.

Thank you Donna and I much appreciate your love of the Native culture, which is, by its very nature, very spiritual and earth based. I really enjoyed having you both and surely do hope you can someday return. Any host would be lucky to have you stay!

“Lovely home”
Reviewed 10 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We stayed at El Santauri for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. We were warmly welcomed by our host Vivien and she provided us with a complete tour of the property. The house was well equipped and clean. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the outdoor spa.

“Fabulous getaway!”
Reviewed 3 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Amazing quiet and secluded getaway for a visit to New Mexico with my husband, minutes from Taos Pueblo. The property is beautiful this time of year with the changing leaves starting to fall and the cozy fireplace. The house itself is quite spacious and cozy on a cold night. We would definitely return!
