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...

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.

Management response:

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!

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.

Management response:

Well thanks so much and come relax anytime!

About the neighbourhood
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.
