About Melissa /Taos mgr. www.redcatmelissiana.com cell 415 497-7761

Native Texan but an adopted New Mexican. I pack my stuff and 3 dogs in the car and come to Taos every chance I get to enjoy the sky, mountains, skiing, cycling, hiking, rafting, fascinating people, exploring the art scene ( new and old), history, live music, great food and the laid-back atmosphere.

Melissa /Taos mgr. www.redcatmelissiana.com cell 415 497-7761 purchased this house in 2010

Why Melissa /Taos mgr. www.redcatmelissiana.com cell 415 497-7761 chose New Mexico

I grew up coming to New Mexico and have always loved it. Taos has everything to offer from outdoor activities and sports to the arts, live music, shopping and restaurants

What makes this house unique

Nearby Sunset Park and Valverde Commons have the best dog-walking paths in Taos. Take a cooler to Sunset Park and watch the sun set over the mountains. Walk 5 minutes to the Plaza for shopping, art galleries and restaurants.

Your place is lovely! We really enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect! The rural views from the window are lovely and we were able to walk to town easily as well.

Sibling vacation

  • 5 of 5

My two brothers and I throughly enjoyed our stay in Taos and especially at this property. We loved the decore of the house, the proximity to the plaza and the well stocked kitchen. We hope to return again next year and stay at this property again.

Spring Break from Wisconsin

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Taos and did not know the area. I am so happy we chose a home close to town and also a short drive to Taos Ski Valley. There are plenty of areas to walk including the park down the street. The home was much more spacious than originally anticipated and the decorating is fantastic. We have never rented a home with linens that were so comfortable and obviously great quality. The outdoor space is so relaxing as also has an outdoor fireplace. This home is so unique and beautiful I would highly recommend this property.

We agree that the location is perfectly situated for experiencing all of the highlights that the town of Taos has to offer. Great restaurants, parks and shopping are all within walking distance. Plus, the drive to Taos Ski Valley is easy and beautiful and is a great way to start a day of skiing.

Convenient location, comfortable beds, nice fireplace

  • 4 of 5

Overall, I was satisfied with the place. My favorite part was the fireplace, and plenty of firewood was provided. The only issues were:

DirecTV did not work

Lots of dog hair ... wear black and you'll see

Owner's Response: Hi David, thanks for taking the time to write a review. Yes that fireplace is great for ambiance. The baseboard heaters and gas log stove in the bedroom provide the actual heating, but there is nothing like a fire on a cold night. I am sorry you had problems with the TV. Some guests have no issues at all while others struggle. This TV has many options including regular channels and netflix so it is more complicated. There is a complete list of instructions in the TV cabinet. I have spoken to my housekeeper regarding the dog hair issue. Many folks appreciate being able to travel with their pet and so dogs are welcome. Leftover dog hair is not acceptable!

Beautiful Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

The warmth, comfort, and location of this home was perfect for our family holiday in Taos. Mountain views, convenient location for walking to museums, restaurants, and shops, home stocked with everything we could need, and quiet peaceful area made for a memorable and enjoyable vacation for our family. It truly felt like our home for the week. We look forward to returning.

Lovely home close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Taos and it was largely due to this wonderful accommodations. The house is immaculate with wonderful decor and fully stocked with everything you could need. We loved the super comfy beds, wonderful artwork and lovely view from the dining room. There is a locally owned park just down the street that was nice for our girls to run around in and even a few friendly horses literally across the street. The walk to town was only 5 minutes so super convenient if you don't want to pay for parking. Melissa was very helpful and prompt as well with questions and requests. This a wonderful house for a small family who wants the comforts of home and the convenience of a location close to town.

Very nice home in Taos

  • 4 of 5

We had such a great stay in this home in Taos. It really is the best of the country feel and super close to restaurants and shops. We loved the weather, rained the entire time we were there and wished it would have snowed. There are no complaints at all about our stay or the home. It has absolutely everything you need. Very comfy. I didn't want to take away an entire star for a suggestion I have, but unfortunately there are no half stars. We did have quite a rainy stay and it would have been nice to have more options on the Direct TV channels. They had bare minimum and I would suggest that the owners invest in a bluray dvd player which has Netflix and Vudu so guests can log on to their own accounts and watch some good movies. Otherwise, perfect. Thank you for sharing your home.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review. Traveler reviews are a huge help to the owner to help them ensure that guests are completely satisfied as well as to future travelers to let them know about the home they may want to rent. We are thrilled that the house worked out well for you, even if the weather wasn't so cooperative. The TV at the house is a "smart TV" that allows connection to Netflix, Hulu, etc. I'm sorry that we were not able to communicate that to you so that you could access your movie accounts. To avoid this problem in the future, we are going to prepare a note card to leave near the TV for future guests that let's them know that the TV has an internet connection so that they can connect to their Netflix and similar accounts. Thank you again for bringing this to our attention and please keep us in mind for future trips to Taos!
