Photos and Description of the Taos vacation apartment rental

A wonderful little downtown apartment for couples or singles...

Red Cat House is a one of a kind vacation rental apartment in Taos. When inquiring about vacation accommodations in town, an often asked question is 'Are you walking distance from the Plaza?' Red Cat House is unique in that it across the street from the Historic Taos Plaza. In fact there are Plaza, town and mountain views from every window. This apartment offers convenience combined with a peaceful and quiet, spacious yet cozy, home away from home for two.

Red Cat House is located on Dona Luz Lane, 'The Garden Street of Taos' (landscaped by me, a professional landscaper) This street boasts a wonderful variety of shops and restaurants. It was once the 'Red Light District' in town and La Dona Luz was a madame. Most of the shops are women owned and we call ourselves 'The Ladies of Dona Luz'. I have a shop on the street. Red Cat Melissiana, two doors away It is a shop filled with a little bit of everything as long as it is fun and unusual--antiques, gifts, local folkart, lingerie and flower shop...

Entry is down a little brick pathway surrounded by blooming plants with original outdoor art on all walls and an outdoor seating area. Upstairs is Red Cat House-a wonderful intimate world of its own. You will discover antiques, color and light, original art and whimsical touches in your own private little world. Many of the furnishings are available for sale (if I can bear to part with them.)

You will often find fresh flowers from my home garden or my flower shop and there is always an array of plants throughout the apartment.

The sunny eat in kitchen is well equipped for morning coffee, a gourmet breakfast or a romantic dinner for two.

The living room is a perfect spot for lounging with a comfortable couch, lamps, a flat screen TV, DVD's, books and a selection of music for just that right mood. Enjoy dinner at an 18th century walnut tilt top table for two looking out over the Plaza with a view of Taos Mountain in the distance. If you need to do a little work (not too much I hope), there is high speed internet available and a desk where you can write about your wonderful Taos adventures or even compose a spontaneous love poem..

The sunlight bathroom has a large shower, lots of towels, robes for two and some fun touches to discover.

The bedroom is so very special with an antique queen size, pillow top, four post teak canopy bed, down comforter, fine linens and lots of pillows. Hang your clothes in a tall mirrored English oak armoire. The bedroom is cozy with a gas log stove. The multi paned windows are screened to allow you to enjoy our wonderful mountain air that just invites snuggling-so cozy and romantic.

If you can tear yourselves away from the comforts of Red Cat House, all of Taos is just outside your door. You are within easy walking distance of all Historic District shops, restaurants, galleries and museums. You may browse the many guides and menus found in the apartment or just ask me for suggestions about 'All Things Taos'. Ask me where to go for live music and special events during your stay so you can meet folks who enjoy life and all the richness Taos has to offer. I enjoy sharing the charms and stories of our town with visitors. I can also stock your refrigerator, make dinner reservations or whatever you might wish done before your arrival.

Red Cat House has so much to offer. This is a little slice of Paradise in Taos-the perfect vacation spot you will always remember.

p.s. No significant other at the moment? Red Cat House is a perfect solo vacation spot too.
