About Reza Mehran

Decorated Veteran, Helicopter Pilot, Traveler. Loves peace and nature to forget the mayhem of the daily life of a cancer surgeon.

Reza Mehran purchased this estate in 2010

Why Reza Mehran chose New Mexico

Albuquerque has a perfect weather year round and this is a little secret most tourists don’t know about. I did a lot of flight training here and the scenery is superb and accessible right from the property. The Native American Indians bring a special dimension to the entire experience. Albuquerque is surrounded by 7 reservations each with their own subtle culture. New Mexico is truly the land of enchantment.

What makes this estate unique

This property is perfect to enjoy relaxation and immersion in nature with miles of bike paths and trails right at the door step. All amenities including grocery stores, Albertson, Costco, Lowe's and dozen of restaurants including some very typical New Mexico ones in antique adobe houses are no more than 3 miles away. For those who still need their fix of coffee, the specialized coffee shops are right around the corner. So, complete immersion in nature, yet close to everything. How is this possible? The property is abutting the Rio Grande Nature Reserve on one side, the modern life on the other and 5 acres and other acres of farm land and horse pastures between the two. This is the perfect retreat for the physically active intellectual who needs a break from it all. Bring your bike or use the ones available on site, exercise daily, explore a new cuisine every night and retire by the fireplace with your favorite drink under the stars to wrap up a great day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Both my husband and I are surgeons and needed time off from our hectic schedule. The Hacienda was superb. We felt totally at home, safe and relax. Will return soon.

Property located on 5 acre estate, perfect for privacy and quiet, birdwatching and swimming or wading in the Rio Grande River, or the pool. Unique Village of Corrales offers beautiful rural landscapes, artisans, and a variety of restaurants and quaint shops. Visit the local farms for fresh vegetables, fruits, or canned goods. There's a local Winery. There are orchards and corn fields, wonderful walks along the irrigation ditches with horse back riders and other walkers and bikers. There's always something to do or see in Corrales or just stay at the Haciends and relax. We are sorry but we cannot accommodate weddings.

Hacienda on the Rio Grande
average rating of 5.0 based on 12 reviews

Beautiful house and property! Clean and well maintained home with lots of character w/high quality!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great Christmas in this home! The kitchen was well stocked with cooking and baking items, along with a great oven/stove. We went to Sprouts to buy food and had s great time cooking. Many good restaurants around too. We brought our dogs and they were free to run the property since it was completely fenced. It's was probably their best Christmas. We all really enjoyed the alpacas. Great location and great views. We had a wonderful time!!!

Heaven On Earth!

  • 5 of 5

Over the years, we have enjoyed many properties through VRBO but Hacienda de Reza is by far the absolute best. There are so many things to experience right on the property - walking the Rio Grande, watching the tranquil fish in the koi pond, feeding the chickens or the alpacas, or just enjoying a swim with a glass of wine while the steaks are cooking in the outdoor kitchen. There are four outdoor fireplaces to enjoy on a cool night as well as four indoor fireplaces. The kitchen is a chefs dream with everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal and the master suite is so quiet, we didn't even hear the thunderstorm. I actually slept through the night every night! John (the on-site caretaker) is amazing and very willing and helpful to answer any questions we had and we enjoyed having Shadow (his dog) greet us and join us for walks. Corrales is a wonderful village that reminds me of Glen Ellen, CA - great restaurants, shops, slower life, it even has wineries. I can't say enough about this amazing property and can't wait to visit again. So happy we are within a few hours drive. This is the only property to rent in the Albuquerque area, as far as we are concerned, if you are looking for relaxation and rejuvenation. Just leave your worries at the gate!

Complete tranquility and beauty.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Reza Merahn's hacienda was beyond our expectations. We needed a few days away from our hectic schedules and we were completely surrounded by peace and the beauty of the property. We were greeted by John and Shadow who graciously showed us around and made us feel very welcome and at home. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer. We will definitely return and this time stay longer.

Thank you Reza, John and Shadow.

Most spectacular hacienda, don't go anywhere else!

  • 5 of 5

This is the most beautiful hacienda, perfect getaway no place like it! The hacienda has a farm with so many activities you don't have to leave the hidden paradise. It's also a farm are adorable alpacas, chicken, peaceful pond with colorful koi fish, shadow beautiful loyal dog, a trail you can walk along the rio grande to have a picnic under the stars... The hacienda is professional designed, looks like from architeral design magazine but has charm and comfort of a luxury 5 star hotel (beds luxury hotel quality and furniture luxurious). There is a massage room and outdoor pool. It is also bed and breakfast so there is a live in cook who will create the most amazing farm to table meals especially fresh eggs from chickens that morning! There is no place like it, the owner created a spectacular luxurious haven giving the guests a luxurious 5 star boutique hotel feel hidden in corrales. We will be renting anytime we are in New Mexico, don't go anywhere else. The rent is actually less than what it should be...

The most spectacular Hacienda, don't stay anywhere else

  • 5 of 5

This is the most beautiful, magnificent, architecturally designed hacienda that can sleep a large family. It is a hidden gem-farm filled with the most adorable alpacas, chickens, magical pond filled with colorful koi fish, winery, and in back is a trail to hike along the rio grande. This perfect getaway has many activities you don't even have to leave! You can go hiking, play with the alpacas, sit outside drink wine and enjoy beautiful scenery, large olympic size pool. It's a bed and breakfast, there is an on staff cook who will cook the most delicious farm to table meal, unique fresh egss for breakfast with yummy toast. The decor of the place is something from architecteral design magazine, but comfy, the beds are hotel quality and super clean not a dust in site. The rent is actually lower than it should be given the quality you get for this deal. Rooms at least 6 people, delicious meals catered and endless activities. Don't go anywhere else! We will return anytime we can, most spectacular haven in town.

The perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing property. It has been beautifully renovated, no detail has been missed. The interior decor and furnishings are gorgeous and of the highest quality. There are many beautiful areas both in and out-doors to relax. There is a large pool with an adjacent outdoor kitchen and dining table. The surroundings are beautiful, serene, spacious, and peaceful. Easy access for a bike ride or a hike along the Rio Grande/Bosque trail. The chickens on the property lay fresh eggs for your enjoyment every morning.

This is a great spot for a girls trip, a small family gathering, or a romantic getaway. There is plenty to do on the property and Albuquerque and Santa Fe are a short trip away (30-60 minutes). There are several good restaurants, and a sprouts grocery store close by in Corrales. I highly recommend this property and would gladly return in the future.
