The Phoenix Earthship is the most exotic nightly rental experience we offer.  This home’s jungle greenhouse creates its own microclimate in the high mountain desert and is completely off-the-grid, exquisitely detailed and outfitted with modern amenities. The outer greenhouse features towering banana trees, grape vines, birds, turtles and a fish pond with fountain.  The inner living spaces are cozy and quiet.  The Phoenix has been welcoming guests from all over the world for almost ten years and was featured in 2014 as one of Lonely Planet’s Top Ten Eco-Stays.

The west wing suite is available for those who want to sample the Phoenix experience without renting a large part of the building. The suite consists of a bedroom with king-sized bed, sunroom, outdoor sitting area and bathroom. Ceiling-mounted TV with Netflix. We provide coffee and tea with a tea pot but there is no refrigeration in the suite. The jungle greenhouse is open for exploration as well.

Note: When only one wing of the house is rented, the door in the kitchen hallway is locked to separate the space. Each wing has its own parking area and their own private entrance. Also, for maximum privacy we ask that you vacate the jungle greenhouse during hours of darkness so as not to observe the other party’s lit quarters.
Important Information on Arrival Times and Payments:

Keep in mind that our arrival times fall between the hours of 2:30 – 4:00 p.m. and check out is at 11a.m., so plan your travel accordingly. For instance, if you will be flying into Albuquerque allow about four hours between landing and arriving at our Visitors Center. (Our community is only a 15 minute drive from Taos). This will give you ample time to deal with luggage issues, renting a car, traffic and/or any delays between Albuquerque and Taos. It’s a wee bit of a trek but WELL worth it. You’ll have a blast!

Payment in full is expected to reserve your dates. If you need to cancel for some reason, our policy is that if you notify us at least 24 hours in advance you may have a standing credit for rescheduling anytime in the future as there are no refunds. You may also transfer your credit to a friend or use the credit to purchase materials from our Earthship Store. Unfortunately, we cannot accept dogs in this flourishing microclimate.

Seven Woman have thoroughly enjoyed this Earthship Phoenix East and West experience. I cannot imagine any other way to visit the high desert world. We have discovered the lovely
earthly scent in the green house is the Jimson Weed tree, one of the many treasures of this place…

We loved staying in the Phoenix so much, we don’t want to leave!
Love the concept of building w/recycled material and also ling off the grid. Our stay here proves that both are possible with seemingly few hardships or sacrifices – just common sense.
I’m going to miss all the animals especially the chickens! All of them except that one red rooster – I’ve go my eye on you!
