Amazing location close to everything! This great 1918 Craftsman was built in 1918 but has all the modern appeal of today. Super comfortable and safe neighborhood. This home has refrigerated air and all the modern comforts. The home is only a few blocks from the convention center, zoo, restaurants and now some really amazing brew pubs.. Old town is only 5 minutes by car. Or sign up for Zagster and rent a bike and get around and explore!

About owner/property manager
I am a dad to 3 wonderful little girls, I have been married for 16 years prior to that we dated for 3. I love to make people happy, I was in the hospitality business for many years and I currently own a successful real estate company with 4 locations and 42 associate broker/realtors. I also own the largest party inflatable company in New Mexico. I look forward to having you and yours stay with us and experience New Mexico! Thomas Mestas
owner/property manager purchased this House in 2004
Why owner/property manager chose Downtown
This home is located in a prime downtown location that is close to everything unique to Albuquerque. The home has been in my family since 1956 where my grandparents bought and lived for the entire time they lived in Albuquerque. I bought the home in 2004 and renovated it to house my real estate office. We quickly grew out of the home and made it a rental to one of my employees that lived with his family for several years. I decided to offer this unique home to travelers early this year so we started to prepare the home and we feel that this is a very comfortable and amazing home that you can create many amazing memories.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date. You must contact the owner directly to request cancellation.
Over $700 down the drain.
From the minute we got there, we were uncomfortable. The neighborhood got "great" reviews. But the neighborhood did not seem safe. We spent half a day going back and forth between Home Away and the owner, trying to cancel the reservation. When it was all said and done, we never stayed one night, had to pay for a hotel room and they wouldn't even help us out, not even with a partial refund to cover the cost of the hotel!
Fantastic location, no frills
Thomas was extremely helpful and accommodating. House was a little run down. Bathroom sink clogged, the roof leaked both up and downstairs. Overall it was what we needed - a place near the convention center where we could cook, sleep, and work.
Not a bad place to stay but poor service.
My arrival time was set to be Monday at 4:00. Actually arrived at the home at 5:30 had not received codes to access the property at this point. Tried calling property manager, first attempt went straight to voice mail. At this point I started looking for a way to contact VRBO. There customer service line did not work at all. By this point I'm livid. I call the property manager a second time. This time I actually get a live person. They tell me the owner is in a meeting but they will try to get them. I'm then transferred and once again get voice mail. Now I'm really mad. I call back once again and finally get someone who is able to give me the code. It was close to 6:30 before I was finally able to access the house. Remember I was supposed to have this code by 4:00 at my arrival time. Other than that the house was decent. It had it's weird quirks but nothing that limited the stay. I wish they would have sprang for some decent toilet paper and not something that felt like sandpaper but that's a small issue. Stay would have been rated higher if there wasn't so much problem with the initial access of the property.
Would stay again
For the price you can't beat the location and how much room there is in the house. It is an old house so you can't expect too much. The living room and the dinner room had plenty of space. The bedroom up stairs and one bedroom down stairs were nice. The third bedroom is a little creepy but if you're looking for some sleep then it's fine. Not the best but for value and location I give it a 5 star.
Very nice place to say while in Albuquerque- with responsive and helpful owner/manager
We used the Downtown Albuquerque Craftsman house for our international guests, we stayed for a few days. The home was clean, outfitted as advertised and when I needed to change a few details based on last minute information from my guests the owner/manager was available and helpful. I would recommend this property and would definitely use it again.
The house is within easy walking distance from the historic part of town. Neighborhood felt safe. Owner very responsive to questions and personable.
