Fantastic place and equally fantastic service. I would happily recomment Casa Montoya to friends and family - in fact we are hoping to get back again in 2008. Very central to Taos and the ski valley, Casa Montoya has everything we needed for our ski trip - the hot tub was the icing on the cake! Thanks again for your attention to detail and your warm welcome.

A Home Away From Home

We loved Casa Montoya! There was such a sweet charm to that little place. It felt just like home for us. A very nice retreat for our road trip (so far the best place we have stayed yet). We even like how the Mexican restaurant down the street delivered to us (the girls paid thru the "drive through window"). Thanks so much!

Owner's Response: This wonderful family's youngest daughter chose to write a school report about New Mexico so they all drove to our state so she could have an up-close experience. How blessed I am that they stayed at my casa.

We had such a warm, relaxing time at this wonderful casita! So many charming touches from the wooden floors to the romantic kiva fireplace, cheerful artwork, bright dinnerware, diverse book and dvd collections (so fun to see Gary Larson's work again). The California King sized bed was a real California King and we just sunk in and wrapped ourselves in the soft comfort, the beddings were so nice my wife was trying to find some like it. Casa Montoya was clean, well-kept and made our trip to Taos extra special. Thanks to Ellen for wanting to make sure we had everything we needed and had a great time. We sure did!

Charming Rental

This is a cozy, warm retreat in Taos. It's within a comfortable walking distance to the plaza and all of the galleries, shops and restaurants in and near the Historic District. It's quiet and offers a fireplace, hot tub, Wi-Fi connection, washer/dryer and fully equipped kitchen. There is no land line in the unit so bring your smart phone. Do not come to Taos expecting everything to be as it is in the big city. Taos is a small rural town with many historic attractions as well as an active artist community. We found this rental to be a very comfortable "home base" for any number of excursions or just a warm spot to hang out and unwind. The owner is attentive and seriously interested in the comfort and satisfaction of tenants. We will return.

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely, well maintained property. It's proximity to old town was an easy walk, though I was a little disappointed in the surrounding properties. A minor problem with the WiFi was quickly addressed by Ellen. I would recommend this property for couples looking to enjoy the beautiful area of Taos. While there, be sure to take the Enchanted Circle Drive. Absolutlely beautiful.

Car: recommended

Considered 'sacred' by many of the residents, Taos Mountain is a world-class ski resort. Taos has a rich history and cultural heritage, with numerous galleries, museums and festivals you can walk to from Casa Montoya. You'll love this place - only fabulous people have stayed here! Some guest comments: Not only is there a Yahtzee game, you’ve even supplied red cedar wood (the best smelling wood in the world!) From the moment we arrived I’ve been raving to my husband about how much I love your charming home. I’ve got Lots of decorating ideas and even convinced him we should stay in and order pizza (which we can’t do where we live) and watch one of your videos. Yippee – it’s my birthday celebration, after all! Ellen, we’ve stayed in vacation rental homes in Hawaii, New York, Florida and Rome and yours is by far the nicest!! Thank you.

Not only was Casa Montoya lovely, but it far exceeded our expectations! Greg, Robin & Megan, Cleveland, OH

Ski: Nearby Taos Ski Valley is a world-class ski resort with an outstanding ski school. Ski during the day, then come home and stroll to Taos Plaza or excellent restaurants just blocks from Casa Montoya - or come home from skiing and soak in the private hot tub and then sit by a cozy fire in the living room. Ah, you'll love it!
