Kevin B. From start to finish, our time at Casa Feliz was spectacular. The grounds of Lumina Gardens are meticulously maintained and provided a nearly surreal relaxation level amid a global pandemic. The world literally stopped turning while we were there. How peaceful.

Casa Feliz was spectacular as well with it’s two patios and spacious floor plan. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the bedroom patio and breakfast and happy hour on the living room patio while enjoying the majesty of the New Mexico mountains sunsets. The kitchen was well stocked with items that allowed us to prepare some amazing meals.

The home was spotless and meticulously cared for. Kudos to the TurnkeyVR local contact for bringing us a can of wasp spray to take care of some unruly guests outside and for providing recommendations on local dining. Orlando’s in Taos was a huge hit!

Have already shared our experience and recommendation on Facebook with all our friends. Looking forward to our next stay!
