About Dragonfly Manager

The owner is a native Taosena who returned to NM to focus on improving healthcare for the people of New Mexico. In her spare time she works in film and TV with her two kids.

Dragonfly Manager purchased this estate in 2006

Why Dragonfly Manager chose New Mexico

This is the most exquisite area of Taos County with incredible views, privacy and space for magical gardens, and easy access to both town and Taos Ski Valley. Also, you will be sleeping at about 2000 feet lower than the ski valley, making altitude sickness less likely during your stay.

An unforgettable week

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home and property. The centerpiece our family's wonderful summer vacation. Tucked away yet close enough to everywhere we wanted to be. All-wheel drive recommended. Hummingbirds during the day and check out the stars at night!

A Fantastic Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Dragonfly house! There were nine of us and being that we are all relatives, it was great to have such a spacious and lovely home in which to spread out. Everybody, especially our sons, enjoyed the game room which was complete with ping pong and air hockey. We arrived very late in the evening, which was not recommended, but found the house in the dark and snow. A four wheel drive car or chains are a must during the snowy winter. We loved the Southwest architecture and furnishings of the home and the Kiva fireplaces were delightful. Anne was extremely helpful and patient as she answered our many questions about the house. Communication was great throughout the whole experience. We came for the skiing and the snow, but would love to see how the yard and surroundings look in warm weather too!

Excellent Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here at the beginning of summer, and it was great for the two of us (though it would certainly work for big families too - this place is huge!). We had a week here and found something different to do everyday: tour Taos art galleries, hike the forest surrounding the house, go horseback riding on Wheeler Peak. In the evenings, we'd fix a drink at the house wet bar and hang out in the Jacuzzi, barbecue on the back patio, or watch a movie on the big screen upstairs. There's an indoor atrium and I loved to have my coffee there in the morning. My boyfriend was a lot more interested in the professional stove in the kitchen and I know he had a lot of fun cooking dinner each night.

It was a completely relaxing experience. The views around the house are stunning at all times of day, and we felt hidden away from city hubbub and stress (we took frequent naps in the outdoor hammocks!). At the same time, Taos is about 30 min. away and there are neighbors within walking distance, so you're not totally cut-off if there's problem. The owner doesn't live here, but she was always reachable by cell and her housekeeper was nearby if we ever needed her. We really loved it and we're planning on coming back as soon as we can.

Dragonfly Estate is a charming yet elegant retreat. With some of the most panoramic views of the Taos area it allows for wonderful entertaining. The home is warm and accommodating to large groups of people with spacious rooms inside and serene decks and patios outside. All ages can find comfort and entertainment while staying here. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for cooking fabulous meals while the adjacent the game room is loaded with fun activities for everyone (24/7). The bedrooms are very attractive and nicely furnished. The master bedroom has beautiful morning views of the mountainside while steam bath is the perfect way to relax after a full day of skiing. Toasting champagne on the upstairs patio at sunset could not be more perfect! Dragonfly Estate made for an exceptional vacation!
