We enjoyed staying our stay at Casa Manana very much. It's a very comfortable, cozy place, and the bed, pillows and bed linens were GREAT (not the case at most hotels and vacation rentals). The location can't be beat - only steps away from the plaza, museums and restaurants! Upon our arrival, wonderful, blueberry muffins were waiting for us in the kitchen, and the music and book selection were interesting and soulful. We also found the book of information made available about Taos attractions very helpful. We took the walking tour, and enjoyed three of the lovely museums during our weekend stay. Casa Manana was a perfect place to come back to - to have a drink, regroup and unwind, We'll definitely come back next time we visit.

My wife, 5 year old daughter and our Labrador spent 2 great weekends here this winter. Just as described. Very comfortable, quiet, and extremely convenient to downtown. The hot tub was a great way to relax after a day on the mountain. Perfect getaway!

Casa Manana is the best. The sunrise from the bedroom window,the warm morning sun in the cozy living area and the beautiful sunsets while sitting on the deck. Not to mention sitting in the hot tub and looking up at the stars. The casita is so cozy and nicely decorated. Kevin, the caretaker, was great to answer all of our questions and Kate pays attention to all the details with bathrobes for the hot tub and big chairs on the deck. Loved the wooden bird artwork in the window and all the other touches that make the place so unique. The neighborhood was quiet but such a short stroll to the plaza. We will return again.

November 15 - 18, 2007 What a beautiful romantic getaway. We had such a wonderful time at Casa Manana. The entire home was beautifully decorated in New Mexico decor, had everything you could possibly want in a vacation rental. Had a wonderful time in the private hot tub. Special touches such as the beautiful wine glasses for our wine, beautiful margarita glasses for our margaritas, very large and soft pool towels for getting out of the hot tub, and the special touch of 2 beautiful thick robes to lounge in, especially great when getting out of the hot tub. Absolutely a perfect get away vacation rental and we will most definitely be back. Your caretaker, Kevin, was very helpful to us with suggestions on places to visit, eat, etc. Again, a beautiful home, great price and we will definitely be back. Jo Anne & Randy Olson Erie, CO

We stayed at lovely La Loma Chica in August and it far exceeded our expectations! The casa is lovely with a beautiful garden perfect for star gazing and within a short distance to the historic district. We were so thrilled with the place and can't wait to revisit!!!!

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Kate Culligan and Josh Comfort have lived in Denver for over 30 years owning and managing rental properties as a side- line to their professional lives. They have a Brady Bunch of kids-with Josh’s four kids and Kate’s two. She is a former Marketing and Promotions executive with Clear Channel Radio and has recently started a consulting practice specializing in career development. Josh is an Architect with extensive historic renovation experience, and has been a prime mover in the revitalization of Lower Downtown Denver, which is now filled with lofts and restaurants, many designed by Josh. A short 4-1/2 hour drive away, Taos offered a dramatically contrasting experience – inner city life in a burgeoning metropolitan area versus an ambling pace in a culturally complex small town. Their Taos adventure began six years ago during a weekend getaway taken to replenish themselves during a particularly challenging period of their lives. Little did they know that a Sunday stroll down Morada Lane would result in a signed contract to purchase their first “unloved” but charming historic property, Casa Manana. The property had been empty for over a year and lacked adequate plumbing and electrical. But Kate and Josh saw through the overgrown courtyard and fuchsia pink walls to see the great “bones” of the property. After an extensive year- long renovation, they were hooked! Five years later they discovered La Loma plaza with its beautiful location on a hill overlooking the town. The private chapel and charming 200- year old homes were enticing and Casa Loma Chica was born.
Why the Owner Chose Taos:
We were visiting Taos for five years before we even discovered LaLoma Plaza. It is a hidden gem-one of the original neighborhoods, quiet and yet close it. The private chapel and beautiful casitas that surround the original plaza are magical.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The casita has a gated front and back courtyard perfect for outdoor dining. Many of the art pieces in the casita are offered for sale.
