About Monica Carson

We are two sisters who grew up in western Kansas and spent many family vacations in northern New Mexico. Our parents often used Taos and nearby Red River as home base for exploring the area and it is still a place we return to as often as possible. Our parents were also fans of having a drink at the Taos Inn and visiting the Ski Valley in all seasons. We have been pleased to own property here and are happy to share our home with other guests, be they new to the Taos experience or those who already love Taos and all things Southwest.

Why Monica Carson chose New Mexico

We chose the Quail Ridge area because of it's proximity to both town and the Taos Ski Valley. It is wonderful to be close to all yet away from the hustle and bustle of town. We love the open layout of the common area in this home, the beautiful views from the grounds and outside space and the added benefit of using the facilities at Taos Tennis at Quail Ridge.

Clean, comfortable, quiet, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This clean & comfortable condo had a well stocked kitchen and pleasant bedrooms. Access to pool and hot tub were most appreciated, and location was perfect: just a few minutes outside Taos but close to good restaurants and grocery stores. Beautiful views from the patio and balcony. Host/owner was very responsive and helpful for all our needs. Would absolutely stay here again.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

This is a good place to stay. We had six ladies for a "bridge weekend". The house is very comfortable and well kept. The kitchen is better equipped than any place we have ever stayed. This is our second time to stay and will probably stay again. It is out of town enough to be quiet and not so busy, but close enough to restaurants, shopping and casino.

Wonderful property for a ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Casita New Year's weekend and could not be more pleased. The house was very clean and extremely well-stocked for vacationers. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable for our family. It was so nice to come back "home" after a full day skiing and relax with a fire. We hope to be able to stay here on future visits to Taos. Thank you, Monica.
