Guestbook comments from the owner

What a lovely time we had! Your home is comfortable and clean, and we didn't have a need for anything. Also, every tip you gave us was wonderful. We had fabulous meals at every restaurant you suggested; and were so pleased you suggested Taos Ski Valley. We weren't familiar with it and were quite impressed!

NOT your typical rental-home. Combo of casual, comfortable, yet elegant S.W furnishings/art indigenous to the style, culture & architecture of the region. Terrific grounds/outside spaces too. Being a private, gated in-town property gives you a very secure, yet open vacation experience. Hot-tub & Sauna are wonderful amenities. This is truly an exceptionally nice home, in a wonderful setting, in a super convenient, walk to everything, Taos location. Yet, it still has a very private, quiet & peaceful feeling. Visiting favorite cafes/bistros/restaurants, galleries, shop/boutiques at/near the Plaza is so quick/easy. Conversely, hiking/white water rafting/skiing/golf and other high plains/mountain outdoor recreational activities are equally convenient. Kit Carson Park is 3-blocks away & is great for dog exercise. Everything needed is provided ... down to plush robes for going to/from hot-tub/sauna when it's chilly. After renting about 90 properties over the last 24 years, we especially appreciated the attention to detail in the maintenance & cleanliness of this home. Pride-of-ownership shows. This is definattely not a rental property that the owners sometimes use. Rather, this is obviously a home for the owners that they also rent. We hate rental-home surprises ... except in this case, Buffalo Gal Cassita far exceeded what was advertised ... a most pleasant surprise. We will most definately return.

We had a wonderful time at Buffalo Gal Casita! Everything was just as advertised, and in some cases, even better. Hope to make it an annual trip.
