This home has three bedrooms, two full tiled baths, a large kitchen, living room/dining room, a family room and separate laundry room. It has a big front deck with mountain views and flowering container plants everywhere. The deck is shaded by a big apricot tree, just delightful on a hot afternoon. There is also a back covered portal/patio with table and chairs, BBQ and of course more plants. There is ample parking and surrounding garden spaces. A fun addition is 'The bunkhouse' a perfect spot for the young or young at heart. The home sleeps 2-6 in beds. There is a family room sofa sleeper and bunk house sleeps two. The Bunk house is summer lodging although there is a heater and electric mattress pads...
The home is furnished with my antiques, consignment store and yard sale treasures, original art, folk art pieces and my whimsical style throughout. All bedding, towels, kitchen supplies and appliances are new and inviting.
If all this is not enough, my home is less than a five minute walk through a pleasant historic neighborhood to the downtown Plaza area with shops, galleries and restaurants.
There is an additional one bedroom casita on the property (separate parking and fenced for privacy) which will sleep two(vrbo 490376.) If you choose to also rent this casita this Compound can sleep 8 guests in beds. A truly perfect getaway for 2- 12 guests!

PLEASE NOTE: Even if my calendar shows a booking for your dates contact me. I have a total of 10 Taos Vacation Rentals so I have all kinds of availability...
Some women collect shoes. Some collect husbands. I seem to collect houses!
I am the VRBO Queen of Taos with two homes, a downtown apartment and now another house and soon (within the month) a little casita for guests.
I so enjoy buying old adobes, remodeling and reviving and then furnishing them and renting them to visitors. My houses are always booked and I get great reviews.
I am a busy Taos woman. Aside from my vacation rentals, I own a fun, eclectic downtown shop called Red Cat Melissiana. The name is a combination of my red cat Nellie and my name. Melissiana is a made up word and means 'anything I want since it's my shop'. I have unique gifts, flowers and lingerie in a wonderful old adobe building with great history on a street known as 'The Garden Street of Taos' planted of course by me. I am active in my community, on two board of directors and certainly never have a bored moment.
I moved to Taos 8 years ago from the San Francisco Bay area after raising my three children as a successful landscaper. I wanted a small town with lots to do, real mountains and four seasons. I got all this and more. I can't imagine living anywhere else and love sharing my town with my guests.
Melissa /Taos mgr. purchased this house in 2013
I've known this home for years. A friend of mine owned it and I often went to garage sales at the house. It had a nice feel to it and I liked the location. It went into foreclosure two years ago and I honestly forgot about it. I had enough else going on. A real estate friend of mine mentioned it to me and we went to see it. I immediately saw the incredible potential as a wonderful vacation rental, but no longer had my 'California money or California mentality'
My mom is 96 and talked about wanting to do something for me while she was still alive to enjoy it. She wrote a check and I had another house.
I bought it in March and it was quite the challenge, but 4 months later I have an amazing showcase vacation rental!
Thanks mom! I've named it 'Casa Madre' for you!!!
This home has a wonderful feeling to it. Ok, part of it is my style and taste I know, but it is inviting and friendly with a spacious, yet cozy feeling.
Floors are wood or mexican tile, there are lots of windows and it has a welcoming feel.
The house is constructed of 'cross ties' which are railroad ties, but not treated with creosote so the walls are thick and it is cool on the warmest days. I splurged on two gas log stoves for that fireplace feel without the firewood chore. All rooms now have heat. It must have been quite chilly in the past, but will now be warm in the winter.
The house has a nice layout and will be comfortable for one to three couples in the three bedrooms.
The neighborhood is great. Nice homes, peaceful and quiet. Birdsong in the day, crickets at night and occasionally the intriguing sound of someone's peacock! (A peacock in Taos? I swear it is...)
There are two homes on the property, but each have their own parking area, are separated by gardens and a fence so everyone maintains a sense of privscy.
The property is completely fenced and I am a dog friendly lady who knows how many folks travel with their pet.
This is a very special home and I am proud to offer it as a vacation rental.
Melissa, we had a wonderful stay in your house. So cozy and tons of character and charm!
We especially appreciated the fully stocked kitchen. Made cooking so much more pleasant.
We look forward to coming back for another visit.
rooms spacious and comfortable. parking for 2 cars. check-in/out couldn't have been easier. 2 outdoor decks/sitting areas. grill. plenty of privacy but close to town/the bars. couldn't recommend more - we had a great time, thanks casa madre!
This was the perfect place for our winter vacation! Close to everything we needed, and the house was very well kept. Plenty of room for everyone, even had room to spare. Would like to visit in the spring or summer so we could enjoy the adorable patio.
We stayed for 2 nights with a group of 7 people. The house had plenty of space for everyone with room to spare. It was really clean can comfortable. We could walk to the plaza (granted we all like walking) but it was in a great location. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. I didn't find anything that could beat the price. Just wish the weather had been warmer so we could enjoy the patio areas.
Found this home clean and full of character! Stayed here with my family for our daughter's wedding! Comfortable and quiet! Spent a lot of time on the front porch, so relaxing!
Have had people stay at this beautiful home twice; great place! And the owners are a pleasure to work with!
Perfect for our short getaway!
So much to do in Taos whether your interests are outdoor adventures (ski, snowboard, white water rafting, hiking) cultural events (6 museums, lecture series) shopping (numerous, fun shops in walking distance) art galleries (Numerous galleries on Ledoux Street, Kit Carson Rd., Bent Street--all in walking distance) Many restaurants within walking distance
