Very cozy casita!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with Rae and her husband for a week during the balloon fiesta. Rae was so helpful from start to finish! We shipped our coats and boots ahead so we didn't have to pay so much airfare and also shipped 3 more boxes back home with the original box! Rae was so helpful to pack our boxes and see that it was shipped to us. We were provided maps and directions upon arrival and the house was stocked with treats and wine! The casita is maintained quite well and the property beautifully manicured. Property is gated and that was very nice. Thank you to Rae and Keith for an amazing visit! Definitely would recommend and also would love to stay again!

Very nice casita rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful casita for a week while visiting our kids. The owner lives on the property but was nothing but helpful from the day we arrived until we left. Very friendly and showed us everything and even had treats for us when we got there. The place is very clean and comfortable and equipped with everything you would need. Hopefully we can stay again in the future. Very nice to have car inside their gated property as well. Thanks Rae for sharing your casita with us.

a perfectly sweet place

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and I arrived in Albuquerque from the east on short notice and we were so pleased to have such a darling little cottage to reside at for the week. Everything we needed was there. The kitchen was well equipped. there were towels, linens, lamps and bedside tables.and so artistically decorated! Rae, the owner, is delightful and welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. we had a baby with us and the casita was perfect, being a separate building from the house. casita is the perfect word for this little house. in a neighborhood but centrally located for easy access to stores and places. it's so good to know there's a place in Albuquerque to stay.

Fit all our needs perfectly

  • 5 of 5

As a couple, we found the property wonderful for our needs. The bed is super comfy and the bedroom good-sized. The bathroom has a nice walk-in shower. Everything is clean, updated, well-equipped, and we found the property to be super quiet. We couldn't hear traffic as another had commented. There are a couple super nice dogs that will love you. Rae was great to work with and there is good response time. The booking was simple and easy. We chose this location due to its proximity to relatives in north Albuquerque, but it was an easy drive to Old Town. It was near the balloon company where we booked a balloon ride and it was convenient to the highway so we could easily drive to Santa Fe. It is near a road runner access. Shopping needs are just down the road within a short drive. This was a perfect location for our visit to Albuquerque. It was a very comfortable stay and I would definitely recommend.

Very enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

I recommend this property for sure. This was my first VRBO experience and it was wonderful. The grounds were very clean and well taken care of. It really does feel like an oasis and the flowers were cheery and bright. The casita had everything I needed and I felt very comfortable. I stayed here for several weeks and it worked out very well. Great location and the owners were very friendly and helpful.

So Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, peaceful spot! I was here for over 2 months, while working in ABQ, and this was a perfect spot to come home to every evening. They have furnished the Casita with everything you could need, and added beauty at every turn. I loved being in a more residential area of the city, but was still 10 minutes from restaurants and shopping. They have provided a safe haven, whether you are here for Travel and Fun, or staying in the city for business. Next time I'm in ABQ, I hope I'll be able to come back here.
