About W Wood

I have lived in Northern New Mexico for over 10 years after spending almost 20 in Paris, France (yes, I speak French :-) ). I have a degree in architecture and design and have also dabbled professionally in Land Art. I have tried to make Casa Paloma not only aesthetically pleasing, but a true "respite" for recharging our batteries in our busy world!

W Wood purchased this condo in 2008

Why W Wood chose New Mexico

All of our guests have loved Casa Paloma and many come back as regulars. Often they'll tell me that they loved being in the casa so much that they'd eat and relax at home instead of going out! Guests also love the numerous artwork throughout the casa, many done by members of my family (wonderful artists!). The reviews in our Guestbook say it all!

What makes this condo unique

At Casa Paloma, you will truly feel the 'peacefulness' of this lovely home. Walk in the door and relax in a soothing yet sophisticated decor. It is beautiful and yet very cozy! Enjoy the private patio with its hot tub and little garden complete with flowers, grass (except when covered by snow!), a tree and view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. A private quiet peaceful hidden get-away, yet close to stores, restaurants, etc. Even the UPS man was surprised at how we are in the center of town and yet hidden away!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've enjoyed our stay at Casa Paloma and agree with all the reasons stated by your other guests. We too have rented many different houses in Taos in the 80's & 90's but not in recent years. We very much like your contemporary southwest decor and design - a nice light touch and we were surprised to find it well stocked in the kitchen - too bad we stopped by the grocery before we came to the house! Very nice to find real flowers and a pizza in the freezer! (which we didn't eat, but it could have come in handy). Lambert's restaurant was as good as we remembered. Happy to find a few "old friends" left on the restaurant scene. Best, Kathleen & Allen Lebeck (from Albuequerque, NM) and Elissa Lebeck (from New York City)

Lovely Quiet Taos Hidaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at "Casa Paloma" couldn't have been nicer. The condo was beautifully furnished with everything one could want for a perfect stay. Located at the end of a quiet road in a quiet enclave of similar condos, Casa Paloma provide a quiet respite after a day of exploring. Close to everything, but quiet and peaceful. The owner, Winton, could not have been more accommodating and helpful, responding to our every request. The pictures and descriptions in the listing do not do credit to Casa Paloma. Bonus! Fully accepting of pets with doggy bowls and beds provided. We would return!

Comfy casa paloma

  • 5 of 5

Very comfy, clean, quiet and well stocked condo in Taos. Great location just south of the town square in an off the beaten path area. Enjoyed our stay and the owner is very helpful and considerate. Close to the golf course, grocery shopping and art shops.

A Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

This casa is hidden off the road and is an a peaceful area of Taos. The amenities inside the casa were just like home and was nice to have a place to relax after a day of adventure. I was very impressed! The casa even had a hot tub and a Grill outside. If you forgot to bring toys for your children she had storage bends in the dining area with toys for the kids. The home had skylights to get in much of the natural light as well as mood lighting in the bedrooms to make you feel comfortable. I would highly recommend this casa to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Taos.

Only regret is that we didn't stay longer!

  • 5 of 5

Confortable and beautifully decorated. We loved our stay at Casa Paloma and will definitely stay here again the next time we're in Taos. I only wish we had stayed longer.

Casa Paloma for a perfect Taos getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived following a full day of trekking round about NM (Ghost Ranch and Ojo Caliente on our way from Colorado) and were pleased with the warmth and comfort of Casa Paloma. Everything was as promised including the birthday beverage and handmade birthday card for Mom. Quiet slumber was followed by a quick walk around the Plaza and shops and breakfast stop-so many choices! After a wonderful meal at Love Apple we came back for a long soak in the hot tub-perfectly situated in such a sweet courtyard. The owner accommodated our every wish and has a real knack for making a comfortable space. I've stayed in too many places that feel as if they were decorated in one stop at IKEA. Not the case here-lovely artistic touches in all the right places. Would stay there again in an instant! And for longer next time!
