About Maura Rae
I've lived in many states and even lived abroad, but the beauty and magic of Northern New Mexico keeps drawing me back. I'm currently writing my first novel and I'm inspired by the diverse community of artists and writers here. I enjoy hiking, museums, film, dining, live music, dancing, cooking and gardening. I hope to make your stay relaxing and memorable.
Maura Rae purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Maura Rae chose El Prado
This newly remodeled apartment is close to town and Taos Ski Valley, yet off the beaten path in a retreat like setting. You’ll love my place because of the location, the outdoors space, and the ambiance. The property borders Pueblo Indian Land offering stunning panoramic views of the entire Taos Valley. My place is ideal for couples, solo adventurers, artists and writers. Taos is a destination rich in culture and also great for recreation like skiing, hiking, biking, and rafting.
What makes this Apartment unique
This studio suite has been thoughtfully decorated with antiques and artwork from local artists to create an inspiring and relaxing atmosphere. Quality linens and towels will make you feel pampered. The brand new kitchenette has granite counter top, 2-burner glass stove top, microwave oven, refrigerator, coffee maker and stainless steel sink. It's equipped with dishes, glasses, cookware and utensils. For your convenience, coffee and tea are provided. The dining table has seating for four. An American Leather sleeper sofa with queen size Temperpedic mattress, in the living room, offers a good night's sleep for additional guests. HD satellite TV and Sony bluetooth stereo offer inside entertainment. You can take in the view while you sit on one of the patios and sip your morning coffee, have cocktails, dine, watch the sunrise, sunset or stargaze. Garden flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies. The flagstone walkways lead to either of the patios designed for your enjoyment. Patio cushions are not waterproof and it is best to store them inside when not in use.

Meticulous and Peaceful
If cleanliness is a big factor in choosing your rental, you will not be disappointed. Maura's rental is not only extremely clean but very updated including higher end amenities. She clearly puts a lot of thought and care into her space so if you're not the type to return the favor, this is probably not the place for you.
I was a little apprehensive on renting a suite where the owner is right next door but Maura was great at being available without being the least bit intrusive. (I think we only saw her upon arrival)
There is not enough room on this page to go into the amazing vistas!
Bueatiful Apartment and Property
My wife and I loved our stay at Maura's apartment. She has a beautiful property, very nice apartment, wonderful garden, lovely views and all within a few minutes from Taos. We will definitely book another stay. Thanks Maura! You're a great host.

P.S. It is a Common Nighthawk that we heard just after sunset. They chirp to communicate and the buzzing sound is their wings vibrating when performing a steep dive.
Property was just as advertised. Enjoyed it very much.
The casita is attached to the main home but is well situated for privacy and has its own outdoor sitting area with great views including sunsets. Great views from inside as well.
It was a fantastic place to stay. So quite and peaceful!
The property and room was wonderful! It was out away from the city which was perfect. Quite and secluded with great views of the mountains all around.
Maura was a great host the apartment was perfect for our get away weekend! Close enough to Taos but had the feel of being in the country. We definitely recommend staying here and we will stay here again for sure. Maura’s suggestions for food and drink were spot on!!! 5 stars are not enough for this place !!!
Very clean and provided everything you need. Amazing views in a quiet and peaceful setting.
We had a wonderful time in Taos. Beautiful scenery, enjoyed the plaza, food , Art and Music. I hope we can return one day. Would definitely stay here again.
Really Great Place, Really Great Host!
