Overview

About the property

Historic Downtown Apartment 2-4 guests

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 (I have 10) and not retail so it was time to re invent myself 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. I also have a record player and albums for that retro feel.

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.

The bathroom features a fully tiled corner shower and a sink set in an antique Mexican cabinet. There are lots of towels and any supplies you might need.

Winter heat is provided by two stove. One gas and one electric. For summer there are ceiling fans and a swamp cooler, but the 14" thick walls keep this space comfortable year round.

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. I am getting a BBQ grill and string lights so my guests can enjoy this outdoor space.

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 bigger 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!
