Guestbook comments from the owner

It has been a great pleasure to stay in your beautiful casita! It has everything one could possibly want for a few days away. The house is enchanting and the garden is delightful - we particularly enjoyed the seating area by the pond; just watching the fish - listening to the waterfall is so relaxing!! Thank you for everything - hopefully one day we will be back.

Wonderful New Mexican Experience

  • 5 of 5

This place was a delightful home to stay in. After two days we decided to stay another night, we loved it so much! It so well maintained and decorated with attention to detail. Also the location is so close to the Old Town area, which is fun to visit. We will stay here again and we were not ready to leave after three days.

Perfect for what I needed!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this cottage and knew it would be my go-to 'home' in ABQ from then on. True to my word I have already booked a return stay. For my first visit in September I had to bring some work with me and found the desk by the bedroom window and doors to be perfect for that. The location is excellent...close to Old Town, convenient to cross town streets to the University, and to the Interstate. The hosts live next door and both were attentive without being intrusive. I loved the character of both indoors and outdoors - am hoping for a little snow to add to its charm when I return! Two friends came for dinner one night and it was easy to accommodate them. Everything was clean and regularly maintained.

Beautiful Cottage in NM!

  • 5 of 5

La Casita was a wonderful stay! My husband and I stayed for a week while visiting his family and the location was perfect; just a short drive or walk to everything. The home was beautiful decorated and spotless. The owners were great and accommodating. I would love to stay here again!

We loved staying at La Casita!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at La Casita! The size was perfect, the decorations were lovely and the outdoor areas were a nice resting spot during the heat of the day. We will definitely be staying at La Casita next time we are in town! And we've told all of our friends, who also want to stay there too!

If the option of walking to some of Albuquerque's premier attractions appeals to you, then this self-contained cottage may be what you're looking for. A 10-minute-stroll takes you to Old Town with its plaza and shopping opportunities as well as to adjacent museums. Another 10 minutes' walk and you're at the Albuquerque Botanical Gardens and Aquarium. Fast walkers can be at the Albuquerque Convention Center near historic Central Avenue/Route 66 in 20 minutes. Do you like the idea of staying in your own little house and enjoying your morning coffee or tea in the privacy of your kitchen or outdoor patio? Does sitting at a sheltered little goldfish pond just outside your bedroom window sound sound relaxing? Would you like the option of preparing your own meals at home? Do you like to have art gracing the walls of your lodging? La Casita may be just what you're looking for.
