Perfect location and such a fun and charming home!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect for our family of 8 from 7 years old to 71. We had plenty of room and the kids loved the deer and donkeys they could see from the decks and windows. Perfectly located about 20 min to Mesa Verde and 30 to Durango.

Beautiful home with scenic overlook.

We had a lovely vacation, and enjoyed our stay in Jama's home. Mancos is a central location to take trips to Mesa Verde, Four Corners, Monument Valley, and Durango. We would stay here again!

Perfect winter getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the week before Christmas and the house was wonderful. There were 2 couples and 2 teenage boys and we had plenty of room to spread out with all the bedrooms. The kitchen, living room and dining are open concept and just perfect for spending time together. The owner was so nice and checked to make sure everything was fine.

Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I vacation together every year. Jama was by far the easiest owner to deal with... very flexible, responsive, and not a lot of house rules (we've stayed places where there were sign indicating maximum shower duration, labels on every drawer in the kitchen for where things were to be placed, etc.). This truly was "our" space for the duration of the trip.

The house is decorated very eclectically, which we LOVED. It gave lots of conversation starters... we did not turn the TV on once during our week long stay!

We saw countless deer in the yard and giant jack rabbits every day.

My only slightly negative feedback is that the seating in the living room left a bit to be desired from a comfort perspective. The look "fit" the decor of the house wonderfully though.

Overall, we loved it!
