About Allison Massey

I grew up in the Midwest and was delighted to find a place to cross-country ski where the winter was sunny and bright and not bitter cold. After moving to Austin, TX., Taos was a welcome relief from the hot summers.

Allison Massey purchased this house in 2006

Why Allison Massey chose New Mexico

As the early artists who made their way to Taos remarked, "It's the incredible light". La Loma Plaza is a very unique location hidden 2 blocks from the downtown plaza. Walk to museums, galleries, Bent St, Ledoux St, restaurants and shops. The seasons all have a special beauty in Taos.

What makes this house unique

Most of the gorgeous furniture was hand painted by local artist, Jim Wagner. The adobe walls keep the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The front portal is a pleasant place to sit outside and enjoy the changing light of the day.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

We loved being in this very funky and lively old Adobe. We entertained our friends and were constantly amused with little hidden (at first) artist signatures and pieces of whimsy. La Loma Plaza is historic and has such a good Taos feeling.

We did have one problem...the front door would not close after the afternoon rain showers. Easily fixed I am sure. Delightful home!

Pleasant Casa in a good location

  • 3 of 5

The property is conveniently located near the town center. If we could summarize our overall reelections it would be outdated. The linens bathroom linens are worn and actually spotted from bleach and stiff from being dried so often. The kitchen towels are no better. The bathroom is small and certainly not senior friendly. Their are no grab bars for the shower or the toilet which is not the new standard height. There is no vanity, just a pedestal sink, so their is no counter space. The bathroom mirror is the size of a postage stamp.

Their is no microwave in the kitchen and the coffee maker is a relic. All of the appliances are a minimum of 10 years old. The entrance to each room is not level. The thresholds are different heights and it is easy to trip, especially at night. Fortunately we brought flashlights.

The parking area is narrow which makes it difficult for accessing vehicle doors. The parking area is also blocked by a vehicle which is under a cover. Therefore you cannot pull your vehicle forward and exit the area going forward. You have to back out and be very careful not to hit the Casa patio wall or other obstructions.

The lighting, again is outdated. The lights give the old yellow dark light and are not the bright LED lighting that is available today. The chairs in living room, one wicker and one a narrow wood chair are uncomfortable. The couch and the chairs are low and difficult to get up from. Again, not senior friendly at all.

After a week we drove to Santa Fe and stayed for a week at another Casa which is on the VRBO website. The weeks rent was identical to this property. It was a delight. All updated appliances, bright and airy, well and tastefully decorated. The lines were of high quality, plenty of storage and comfortable furniture. It was senior friendly and everything was first class.

This property is overpriced and needs to be completely updated.

Owner's Response: So sorry, as you can see from other guest comments we have never received less than a 5 star review. We took your suggestions and have replaced the sheets. Also purchased new Organic Coyuchi cotton towels. Installed a new Krups coffee maker. Removed the vehicle from driveway making parking simple. Added night lighting throughout the casa. Replaced couch in living room. Appreciate your feedback.

Charming and Delightful

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need and some very thoughtful touches in this charming and delightful casa decorated by Jim Wagner. Clean and welcoming. Close to everything, an easy walk to the Plaza and all the galleries and museums, yet private and quiet.

I throughly enjoyed my stay and wanted for nothing. I would return in a heartbeat.
