This Earthship is great for experiencing a home that is quiet, serene, romantic, private, (one acre lot) surrounded by acres of sagebrush and chamisa. and is only 15 minutes from town. The inside is dark adobe with gold straw, with flagstone floors, and rustic Sycamore Oak beams. 3 kivas fireplaces too! It's been used by some as a recording studio! If you like taking awesome photographs, this is THE place. Cozy, comforting, relaxing, to the point of never wanting to leave!

The space

This Michael Reynolds Earthship, built by Joel Hoar, and designed by Michaels wife, has everything a home needs when it somes to comfort, safety, warmth, sustainability, and functionality. The floors absorb the heat of the Sun during the day to make the evenings warm inside, the sustainable impact on Planet Earth is minimized and sets a great example for many as to how we can make the Planet more sustainable.

Guest access

The whole Earthship is available, with 2 large, yet cozy bedrooms, 3 kiva fireplaces, and a sweet bathroom that uses an on-demand water heater to make showers and baths an unique experence.

Interaction with guests

I am available for contact through my phone number and email!
I live next door when I'm in Taos, which is most of the time, and am always happy to accomadate your needs on short notice.

Other things to note

Staying in an Earthship is an Experience like no other. It faces a pyramid that was used in meditations where Michael Reynolds recieved inspiration for the design and construction of these beautiful structures that enhance the environment in many ways.

Not a normal stay but it's not a normal house. It's an earthship... The house was clean and everything worked. There was plenty of wood for a fire and he location is great - some earthships are a ways out of town. Rex is what you might expect from an earthship owner! He was also very responsive.

We arrived at the earthship with very little expectation. As a family of 4 we were open to a new experience. Rex has created a peaceful and alternative retreat space. With a number of other interesting different Eco builds in the spacious neighbourhood to observe. Fortunately our 2 boys (aged 13 & 9) are happy to entertain themselves in nature; otherwise there is very little for children to do here. Beds were comfortable, big fridge, kitchen had only basic equipment with good 4 ring gas cooker. Shower was quirky and unpredictable. We had to go into Taos during the day as it was just too hot to be there (even with blinds in use) after 10am. During the winter and colder months it will be perfect. Remember it is an earthship so it will not be shiny and very clean.

Response from Rex:
Sarah and her family were a pleasure to host, though we had record breaking temps that week, as usually by June and July the monsoons have arrived, the days get cloudy early, and Earthships are known for getting warm during the daytime as they have large south facing windows to keep them warm during the night from the floors absorbing sunshine, especially during the winter months with the cure is keeping the windows on the ends open, and the fans on. Most Earthships use shadecloth so that you can still see outside and yet have the sun blocked during the peak sun hours. Earthships are made from the Earth, and are not like a regualar house, as Sarah mentioned, so keep this is mind. The shower works great, you just have to follow the instructions and the on demand water heater will provide a nice long lasting flow of warm water that doesn't expire. The Earthship is always clean when guests arrive, yet requires self maintenence if you stay for a few days. Children have lots of play space inside and out, just make sure they have some games to play when entertainment is needed. The wi-fi router is required as all need internet connections for their phone and computers, so there's not much I can do about that. I keep the LED lights covered so the light isn't a problem. Most guests are out and about during the day, visiting the many sights that Taos offers, as there are too many things to see, do and experience here. Thanks for your feedback, it is always considered and utilized.

Rex's earthship was one of the best airbnbs I have ever experienced. The location is, simply put, magnificent, and the home itself is masterfully crafted. Rex was very helpful and easy to communicate with throughout my stay. Highly recommend!

This place is incredible! Hands down my favorite Airbnb I've ever stayed in. I couldn't get over how comfortable and peaceful it felt inside and the views of the night sky and the sunrise were to die for. Rex was a wonderful host, very easy to communicate with and went out of his was to show me around and make me feel at home. I didn't even know about Earthships previously and this was a fantastic way to learn about an amazing form of sustainable design while exploring beautiful Taos.

I had a perfect stay at Rex's Earthship. It is close to town yet out far enough for great star watching!! The bed is comfy, there's a nice gas range for quick scrambled eggs in the morning, lots of space, nice outdoor seating areas for grilling or sunset watching. I would love to stay again!

This weekend was not only a memorable one - but an educational one! Have long loved Taos for many reasons. I saw Taos from a different perspective this weekend, and it was amazing. Your home has a 360-degree view of a magnificent landscape and skyscape. I appreciate that you welcomed my dog Rosie, who also felt comfortable and at ease in a different place. That speaks volumes to me! If Rosie is happy - all is right with the world. And it was - thank you! And it was lovely to meet you too!
