Outstanding Condo & best value in TSV!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Kama's condo Feb 11- 15 with my 17 year old son and his buddy while on an extended weekend ski trip at TSV. We had a blast! The listing description and photos were spot-on. The condo is very new, exceptionally clean, and quiet. The style and decorations were tasteful & bright, just like I'd expect at home. The condo layout was just fine for what we needed: 2 private bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a common area to watch TV, and a pull-out sofa bed for my son's buddy. The mattresses and linens were new and comfortable (as was everything in her condo). The layout was open, bright and well lit. We had a rental car from ABQ airport, and the short drive from the condo to the TSV parking/lift area was easy (~3 minutes away).

Kama was very responsive, immediately replying to my many emails. And she took the time to answer all my questions. She made great recommendations as to where to make restaurant reservations, and which ski trails were the best. Kama is a wonderful person, and made me feel like a new friend. I will definitely rent this condo again the next time I ski TSV. Moreover, I will recommend it to my family and friends that will hear of our great trip.

You will not find a nicer 2BR condo, nor a better value in TSV!

Cotton Valley LA

Great Location. Very helpful owner.

  • 4 of 5

This rental was perfect for us. Very close to Taos Ski Valley, but you still had your own area for the kids to play outside. There is no wait for elevators or crowds, just pull right up to your door! The kitchen was well stocked and we were able to make snacks and light lunches. Probably my favorite thing about this rental was the well water. It tasted so good and fresh. Thanks Kama for all your help. You made our first ski trip the best!

Cozy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice condo with attention to details that made our stay very comfortable. The convenient location is just a few minutes from the ski valley. Although I was surprised that there is not a traditional full kitchen, it is furnished with everything we needed to cook our meals. There is bounty of various kitchen electrics, including a small convection oven, a griddle/grill and a couple of hot plates for use with pots and pans. It's really pretty ingenious. The one and a half baths worked well with our family of four. The only reason I haven't given it five stars is that I reserve that for properties that blow me away. But this place was perfect for our ski vacation.

Great 2 BD Rental Close to Taos Ski Resort

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to get this clean, nicely furnished and perfectly located rental so close to Taos Ski Valley. It was our first time in Taos and we couldn't have asked for a better option for our family of four. Really appreciated the 1.5 baths and all of the storage availability for our ski stuff in this small 'condo'. We cooked in breakfast and dinners and found the kitchen had everything we needed. Thanks Kama!!!
