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)

Outstanding VRBO!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a nicer, more tastefully and thoughtfully furnished, clean rental. We have never stayed in a place that was so well supplied with everything we needed even a first aid kit (which, fortunately, we did not need). Obviously a lot of thought and caring and artistic expression went into making this VRBO special. The owner was very responsive and helpful in providing information about the area It was peaceful and restful and we certainly felt at home. We look forward to returning!

Galleries Galore

  • 4 of 5

This location on the south side of Taos was perfect for us to visit galleries in town and on the High Road, which is a gorgeous drive. The condo neighborhood isn't attractive, but parking is easy, the door lock is easy, and the inside is attractive and stocked with almost everything you may want for a comfortable stay. The bed is comfortable and the small back courtyard with the hot tub is charming and partially covered. I would have given Casa Paloma five stars, but the plug in the bathtub wouldn't shut, and it was filthy under the bed, which was tough on people with dust allergies. Our favorite restaurant, north of the Plaza, was the Love Apple.

Owner's Response: I'm disappointed that our guest didn't give us 5 stars as we pride ourselves in offering guests a wonderful home away from home (as witnessed by the many many 5 star reviews). I wish the guests had called about the bath tiub plug and I could have helped them. I did ask my cleaner to check the plug after reading their review and it works fine, so I'm not sure why it didn't work for them. I also verified with my cleaner that she vacuumed under the bed (we get excellent reviews including for cleanliness) and per usual, she had cleaned under the bed (she is VERY meticulous). We pride ourselves on offering our guests a wonderful place to stay and am sorry these guests did not have a 5 star stay. I am pleased to say that the majority of our guests love Casa Paloma and many come back.

Lovely home, neat and clean with off-road parking on site.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Paloma was a perfect, last-minute booking for my family with easy access to all Taos has to offer. Very quiet location. Especially nice was the ability to park directly in front of the condo and the hospitality of the owner.

Perfect for exploring the Taos area.

  • 5 of 5

The beds were great. The condo was quietly set away from the plaza, but not so far that it was hard to get around to everything in town. The kitchen had everything we needed. Information on restaurants and maps of the area with attractions and activities marked was thoughtfully left for our use. The owner was great to work with and always responded quickly. A great rental!
