Red Cat House Vacation Apartment

Historic apartments in Taos
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 one or two guests.

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.
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.
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 if so inclined. Many of my guests enjoy my record player and collection of albums.
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. I even have an electric mattress pad for chilly Taos nights. So nice to climb into a warm bed.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.
Summer visitors will enjoy window air conditioners in bedroom, kitchen and living room. There are also ceiling fans in living room and bedroom.
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 my "Melissa's Picks" 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.
Although this apartment is right downtown evenings are quiet; an advantage of these old Taos buildings with thick adobe walls.
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.
As with all of my properties I am dog friendly. $10 per night per dog. You may leave on dining table upon departure. I provide dog sheets for sofa and bed. Please use.

PLEASE NOTE: Even if my calendar shows a reservation for your dates take a look at Vrbo 513557 or Vrbo 598600. Both are similar apartments on the same street.

Stay at the Red Cat House in Taos
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Red Cat House apartment. The decor was quaint and the bed was very comfortable. Keeping the windows open in the bedroom at night was wonderful. We loved the fresh air. The best part about this place was its location.... right off the Taos Plaza. We didn't have to drive at all to enjoy great restaurants, bars and shops/galleries! All in all, it was a lovely stay.

5/5 Excellent

Quaint apartment with all the comforts of home.
We found everything we needed and the location is very convenient to shops and restaurants. Decor is unique with a great vintage vibe. Window AC units are understandable, and while a bit noisy, did keep us comfortable for August. One unfortunate event was that we discovered our vehicle had been hit in the lot we were instructed to use for parking. It happened at some point Saturday morning while the lot was quite busy with shoppers. While this, of course, was of absolutely no fault on the part of the host, we would suggest researching other options for parking, as the lot was very busy and full all weekend.

5/5 Excellent

The Red Cat House was amazing - very clean and accommodating along with the charm advertised. The location could not be better for a quiet getaway for two within walking distance from the plaza and mountain views from the windows. Having a bit of heat insensitivity, I was a tad worried but the air conditioning was just fine. The host Melissa was responsive via text to little issues we had. She has several properties so I hope we get to experience those but I would stay there again. Having never been to New Mexico I am happy to have found a perfect place.
