This apartment is right downtown and convenient to everything Taos has to offer including restaurants, shops, galleries and museums.
For five years this was my popular shop Red Cat Melissiana. One day I realized my passion was Vacation Rentals (this is my 7th) and not retail so it was time to re invent once again... Red Cat Melissiana Apartment is located in an 1880's building with all the charm of old Taos and so much history. Originally this was a street with small homes and shops across the street from the Plaza and the original Our Lady of Guadalupe Church. This street was once the Red Light District of Taos with a network of underground tunnels leading to interesting destinations and all kinds of varied stories. There are many spirit activity reports for juicy stories to share. Just ask me...
This apartment is now a newly re furbished space decorated with my antiques, original art and sense of whimsy throughout. It's everything you could want on your vacation for 1-4 guests and so very 'Taos'.
Built in the 1880's, the building has many wooden vigas (ceiling beams), creaky old wood floors, 14' walls and many windows -all operable and screened for summer breezes.
The living room has a futon couch and sleeps one to two guests with bedding stored in antique trunk/coffee table. There is a big flat screen TV if TV is something you want on your vacation. It's located in a one of a kind cupboard in the living room behind closed doors.
The bedroom features a queen bed with high end bedding and a decorative quilt. There is a trastero/armoire for your clothing and please leave your robes at home since there are two just waiting for your cozy moments here.
The kitchen features an eclectic tiled counter, vintage cooktop, sink and refrigerator combo. It is well equipped and offers all amenities for any cooking at home. Table for two-four and extra chairs if you need them.
If you visit in spring, summer or fall you can enjoy 'Melissa's Secret Garden' a private little private oasis under a box elder tree surrounded by container plants, a wall fountain, outdoor lighting and lots of assemblage garden art.
The new bathroom features a fully tiled corner shower,a sink set in an antique New Mexican cabinet, lots of fluffy towels and everything you need for your stay.
Your winter heat is a big gas log stove--the feel of a wood burning stove without the hassle of firewood.
My style of decor is Melissiana Eclectic. What is this? it's a mix and match style with antiques,yard sale and consignment treasures, original art and more--always fun things for my guests to discover, appreciate and enjoy.
This downtown historic building actually has three private apartments and is perfect for single travelers and couples or combine the three and bring a big group of friends and families. The three apartments will sleep up to ten guests in total. All kinds of possibilities (Check out the other two apartments Vrbo 422849 (the Red Cat House) and Vrbo 513557 (Casa Flora)
Great prices, nicely furnished with a quirky sense of style, well equipped, comfortable beds,old adobe with thick walls for peaceful nights and privacy, right downtown and parking across the street. WOW!
This downtown apartment was originally my first and in all likelihood my last retail experience. I spent five years re inventing myself. I was an antique store, but liked my treasures too much to sell them... a lingerie store with great pieces, but...I was a flower shop with amazing floral designs, but... Then a popular gift store with truly unique pieces, but nothing ever quite worked... Once more it time to re invent. I realized I did so well with my six Vacation Rentals. I loved furnishing all my places (all those antiques...) and a reason to go to yard sales and my favorite consignment stores. I filled my homes with eclectic bits and pieces. My style was Melissiana eclectic. As my plumber said, 'Nothing you do makes any sense, but when it's all done, it just works!' I had a reason to buy all the original art that spoke to me. I have stayed in so many vacation rentals myself that I have a good idea of just what amenities and extras I wanted to offer vacationers. I enjoy interacting with all my guests and sharing what I love about this little mountain town I have called home for eleven years.. I received so many positive reviews that I decided to close the shop and pursue my passions so Vacation Rental #7! So much fun!!!
Melissa /Taos mgr. purchased this apartment in 2008
I fell in love this this historic little street and love the charm of old adobes. It has a great location right downtown, ample parking across the street. The street has so much charm and is beautifully landscaped! That would be me. I was a professional landscaper in Northern California before I moved to Taos and am proud that this street is now considered, 'The Garden Street of Taos'! I even won a Taos Beautification Award. All in my spare time. Ha Ha! It gives locals and visitors so much pleasure every summer and I love the color and vibrancy of my plants.
Charming old adobe with 14' thick walls, lots of windows, hand hewn vigas (ceiling beams), creaky wood floors. Great privacy and a downtown location that is the best! Comfortable, whimsical and the Secret Garden too...
The location was perfect, even though we were so close to the square the traffic wasn't a issue, it was quiet in the evenings and mornings. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable and the neighbors were great. We would definitely stay here again.
I had a wonderful weekend here. Very cozy and pleasant.
We arrived the Friday after Thanksgiving and at first we were worried that we were going to be too cold. Luckily we discovered the glorious gasburning fire place and we were able to cook, cuddle, read and return from gallery hopping to a toasty warm studio! The location was perfect! It was in walking distance to everything downtown so during the day we could check out all the fantastic artwork Taos boasts and at night we could head back out to listen to a variety of local music. The studio also came equipped with a record player and some favorite classic records including Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, The Eagles, Joan Baez...the list goes on. Our stay at this sweet little casita was nothing short of wonderful.
I have now stayed in two of Melissa's casitas, and their furnishings are so personal, I feel like I have met her face to face! This one is literally a stone's throw from the wonderful farmers' market, and anything else that is happening on the Taos Plaza. Thanks, Melissa! I loved them both, but of course will have to try the others too, because they are each so quirky and unique...like Taos itself! ;)
Perfect location and lots of fun!
This is a cute (and small) apartment, but extremely convenient to Taos square. The interior lighting was very dim so I replaced some lamp bulbs.
Wonderful downtown location. Across the street from downtown Plaza. Walk to shops, galleries, museums and restaurants
