Elemental Beauty

Set within the jaw-dropping desert landscape made famous by Georgia O’Keeffe, this vacation home for rent in New Mexico allows you to see what the artist translated so powerfully into her canvases. 

Thick adobe walls, sandstone and tile adapt to the desert’s contrasts and fluctuations and remind us that simple, earthy architecture can be functional and stylish in its elemental beauty.

Thoughtfully restored to highlight the building’s rustic character, the cottage is a welcoming retreat decked out with charming vintage and southwest themed  treasures that have brought it back to life, while keeping its sense of place.

With vast expanses of sublime scenery from every window, this ruggedly charming cottage has a unique history all its own. 

 

Check out the cottage next door for rent, initially built as the library for the house.

  • Audrey Hensley, August 15, 2020

    Casa Tocaya is an extremely beautiful, charming house in northern New Mexico. It felt rustic and authentic, and had every convenience. Sitting on the porch with its expansive desert and mountain views was pure pleasure. We felt very far away from it all, yet everything from Santa Fe to Taos to Bandelier National Park was accessible. Even in the summer of Coronavirus, the parks were open, there were plenty of outdoor restaurants and shops, and people everywhere were friendly, helpful, wore masks and respected basic safety.
