Cristina is a Star Host
Star Hosts are highly rated, responsive, and committed to providing incredible experiences.
At El Ranchito, you will find a sweet spot to tuck yourself in on an historic land grant tract with beautiful Mountain views. We are nestled in the lovely valley, in Ranchos de Taos, close enough to town happenings and far enough to feel the peace of simple living. You can park a van, spread out in a small vintage trailer, pitch a tent or any small one vehicle set up you may have, and relax with Muscovy ducks happily living nearby, gardens thriving in season and a welcoming host with her menagerie of pets and animals …perhaps even supplying you with eggs and salad greens if you are lucky. If you like funky and fun you will love it here.

El Ranchito of the Valley
Cristina has a wonderful spot, just outside of town with beautiful mountain views. But, the best part are all the creatures she cares for. After hearing I love animals, she introduced me to all her furry and feathered friends. The happy goats and excited puppy were my welcoming committee every time I showed back up after exploring. Cristina was warm, wonderful and easy to deal with. Her space feels very authentic and I hope to return some day.

Christina’s Ranch was a highlight of my trip! Had a beautiful view of the mountains, and it was so fun hanging out amongst the critters. The camper is comfy and Christina provided me with extra blankets and a heater since it’s still chilly out. Hope to come back and visit someday!

Christina was great about responding and meeting us, getting us oriented and always making sure we were comfortable. Her set up was just what I was hoping for, simple living, goats, chickens, ducks, dogs…(and even 2 baby goats born a day earlier!!) We didn’t want to leave and stayed an extra night. There’s so much to see and do in the area and it was just so easy and relaxing being here, and such a memorable and satisfying experience for us townies and animal lovers. It was hard to leave! The trailer was comfortable and had everything we needed, although we didn’t get a chance to prepare food, which would have been fun.

Cristina is a friendly and attentive host. She values the landscape around her and is very authentic about her love of nature. I had a lovely night in sweet vintage trailer.

Glad I stayed in the cute trailer instead of my van. Cristina had the heater turned on in there for me, as the night was going to be cold. Nice little set-up outside for washing dishes, and the compost toilet was close and easy (and no smell). Her Billy goats did smell, fyi, in case you are sensitive to that. The setting was lovely and rural, yet close to old Taos downtown.
