CASITA PEQUENA-Efficiency Apartment

Apartment with kitchenette, walk to Taos Plaza
This downtown efficiency apartment is across the street from the Taos Plaza. It is on the "Garden Street" of Taos on a little one block street with shops, restaurants and four of my Vacation Rental apartments.
Free parking in lot across the street. Meters but town is not ticketing.
The kitchen area includes a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee maker and toaster as well as dishes and glassware for two. Be sure and check out "Melissa's Picks" posted on frig for shops, museums and restaurants downtown.
The Reading Nook has a comfortable chair, reading light and a variety of Vacation Books.
The dining area is an antique table with two chairs complete with placemats and cloth napkins.
Opaque blinds offer privacy yet allow our wonderful Taos light to come in.
The main room has a ceiling fan, operable transom window and a dutch door for summer use. In winter months there is a gas log stove and even a heated electric mattress pad. Please operate gas log stove ONLY with wall thermostat. NEVER turn off main gas line.
The hallway has hooks for hanging clothing and there is a dresser at the foot of the bed.
I love the bathroom! It has a new tiled shower with my concept of random tiles and is bright and colorful. I provide Robes, thick towels, soaps, shampoo, hair dryer and other miscellaneous bath supplies. There is a ceiling fan for ventilation and a small space heater.
This apartment as well as all the buildings on the street was built in the 1880's so thick walls keep it cool in summer and easy to keep warm in the winter. 14" thick walls will do that. Also it ensures quiet even though right downtown. The beauty of adobe construction.
I operated this space as a small retail shop until I realized my true passion was Vacation Rentals. I love to remodel, furnish and decorate for my many guests.
I now have 11 Taos Rentals. Everything from this efficiency to one bedroom apartments and houses as well as two and three bedroom homes. All are listed on VRBO.
When I closed my shop I still had an inventory of merchandise. Everything in this apartment on walls and shelves is for sale to guests (almost everything...) Truly "Passive Retail" and you can go home with a Taos memory.
As with all of my rentals I am dog friendly and provide dog sheets. I charge $10 per night per dog which you may leave upon departure.
I provide wireless high speed internet with the user name and password posted by the dining table.
All of this at a great location, reasonable rates, amenities galore and shopping in your own private space! Come visit and enjoy Casita Pequena for a short stay.
Guest accommodation at this apartment offers coffee/tea makers and a hairdryer. Kitchenettes offer fridges, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils.

Bathrooms include a shower. Guests can surf the web using complimentary wireless Internet access.

5/5 Excellent

Loved the Cute casita
We really enjoyed staying at this very colorful cozy casita, I even bought some of her items from the wall, great idea and fun looking at them, she had them very tastefully decorated. and Melissa was quick on responding to our questions. My only request is if there is a small water dispenser for drinking and cleaning would have been little easier then going to a small sink in the bathroom. Other than that every thing was just perfect. Thank you

1/5 Terrible

Dark and Hot
While the property is well located, it is woefully inadequate in providing a welcoming and comfortable environment. The lighting is abysmal. It took quite some time to find light switches, which even after being turned on, created a dismal ambiance. Two fans were turned on, but the cooling was awful. The room was warm well into the night, which made sleeping difficult.

5/5 Excellent

Great location
Perfect spot in town. Melissa was very nice and communicative. My only complaint was that it was a little warm at night for sleeping.

2/5 Poor

Unfortunately, we had a difficult time our first night in Taos. Arriving in town in the afternoon, I still hadn’t heard from the host regarding check-in. When I reached her she told me she had sent the door code, but I never received an email. The code she texted me did not work, but luckily we found a hide-a-key in the mailbox. The studio seems to be a former storefront, with no ventilation or natural light. A small table-top unit didn’t do much to help. Lots of items displayed on walls and shelves are available to buy, adding to the stuffy, crowded feel. During my nighttime shower when the shower was not draining, I discovered a good sized hairball covering the drain. I was happy I had only booked one night. The host for our next two nights was excellent and our time in Taos was restful

4/5 Good

Next to Taos Plaza
So convenient to the Plaza shops and restaurants. Nice 1 night stay. Didn’t realize there was no TV but no big deal. WiFi was good. Fun decor. Thanks.
